Daily Wear: THE SKIRT

Remember in my Weekend Rewind,

I was saying I bought a skirt for $7.99?

Yeah, I Marshall's.  And here it is!
For $7.99, how could I leave it behind?  Even if I'm suspicious that it's from last year.
I think it's last year's Fall season because at that time last year, where I work, we made jumpers and other such dresses in the same color and with big black buttons.  This could be a sister to the ones I bought at work last year.
Whatever the case, it was rather exciting to come across it.  You know how Marshall's just has long racks and racks full of random shit; rarely do you ever come across the same piece twice, that's how this was.  So when I saw it was in my size, I snagged it--even if I wear it only once (which is doubtful), it was a deal!
Luckily, this week is supposed to be pretty mild, easy to deal with weather-wise...just like today.  All I needed was a little jacket and I was out the door.
I chose my favorite black bomber jacket of course!
*Black bomber jacket-H&M 
*Black t-shirt-Target 
*Black chiffon beaded necklace-Forever 21
*Black wool scarf-Target 
*Fuchsia wool skirt (Express)-Marshall's 
*Black opaque tights-HUE 
*Black leather boots-Anne Klein
And that's how I do my first day back to work after a 4-day hiatus....lucky me I was so busy playing catch up and trying to be on top of things; well there was just no time for a "Case of the Mondays".

Although, is it wrong for me to admit I'm excited for the weekend to get here already?

Oh my gosh! $7.99?! I love it! I also love how you toned it down with all looks adorable on you!

Now I am seriously convinced that we were friends in a former life or something! I loved hearing your "band-aid" story......doesn't it make you nostalgic of those crazy carefree college days?

Usually in Marshall's they give a reason on the tag for why it's marked down...many a time I've bought things tagged as "past season" so I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case with your skirt here. But who cares? Something looks good it looks good.

SELLER'S REMORSE! I just sold that same skirt to Buffalo (in black) because I was feeling so scandalous in it (sooo short!). Um, I should've tried tights, boots, and long sleeves with it. Le sigh. If were were in person buddies, I'm sure you would have steered me in the right direction.

BY THE WAY, I'VE MISSED YOUR BLOG WHILE I WAS GONE. Now I'm back and all caught up and all is right with the world.
Adored Austin adores you!
