If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good deal (if there’s two things, it’s a good deal and dinosaurs… no, wait… shoes… no, wait… pizza…no, wait…). I troll the sales racks, bargain bins, and clearance section with a ruthless, laser focus. If it’s not just right, it’s just not worth having, amiright? And real talk moment here, am I the only who assumes that half of the stuff on the “Speak Now Or Forever Hold Your Peace” racks never on the sales floor? Ain’t nobody paying full price for a fuzzy, neon poncho with sequin detailing! So imagine my delight when this cute little skirt cut through the pulsating pop music and called my name from across my local Express store. I squinted through the bright (yet somehow dim?) lighting and staggered through the overpriced pants for young professionals towards the Bargain Valhalla and found ME in skirt form (you know, it’s little in the middle, but it’s got much error 404: butt not found?). And this outfit unites all of my favorite things! Stripes? Check. A cheery, in-your-face color? Got it! The sassy t-straps of my dreams? Duh! One over the top statement necklace that is generally difficult to wear with anything? You know I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Seriously folks, get used to seeing this bad boy- I’m going to be wearing it a lot. While there are about a million and five variations on a theme running though my head, this is definitely going to be a go-to combination. As the temperatures drop out, I know that this will provide some delightful tights-related pattern mixing possibilities. So, get your hunting caps ready folks- it’s stripe season.
