Garden Variety

I love this jacket! Not only is it floral, but the pattern and the bomber shape have a bit of a retro feel. The best part of all? I snatched this up during my very first trip ever to Urban Outfitter for $19.99 when it was originally $78. I was so excited and even though regularly priced items from Urban Outfitters are a little bit high for me, I’m officially hooked on the sale rack!

A Little Pink Me Up

I’ve been trying to stretch my boundaries a bit by playing with how I layer. I automatically want to wear a high-waisted skirt with a tucked in top and a cardigan, but I mixed it up a little by wearing my shirt over my skirt. I know, daring, right? But, hey, it’s a baby step and I really like the way this looks with the floral skirt just peeking out. However, I do wish this stop wasn’t so wrinkled!

Marigold

I really like the idea of black and white with just a concentrated pop of color, such as this golden skirt. It looks classy and simple, but because my blouse has a subtle polka dot print, it’s not bland. This skirt has gotten a lot of use considering, I haven’t had it for very long. When I purchased it, I was deciding between this and the same one in red. I chose this one because I didn’t have anything this color in my closet, but that’s also the same reason why I was worried it wouldn’t mix well. However, I think it’s fallen neatly into place as a vivid color that goes well with almost every neutral.
