Shirt: J. Crew
Skirt: J. Crew
Necklace: Forever 21
I met up with the lovely Rochelle from Rochelle Approved on Friday for lunch at Serious Pie (yum!) on her week-long layover trip in Washington. She and her husband are moving to Okinawa for three years, those lucky ducks. I'd be more jealous if Japan wasn't so expensive.
I felt very J. Crewy in this outfit because I wore the only two J. Crew items that I own (excluding a belt, so make it 2 out of three items I own). I mean, I do like their style (not so much the old school J. Crew with brightly colored chinos embroidered with little turtles and sailboats), but I didn't start shopping there until after I started this blog.
Good thing I have a sister who doesn't shop there as well, and she had a $100 gift card that she had hung onto for a few years. When I told her that I spied a skirt there that I liked, she generously gave me the gift card because she knew she wasn't going to be using it. Sweet! Too bad my husband was jealous that I got free money, so I agreed that I would only use half and he could have the other half. It sucks that $50 doesn't go very far at J. Crew, so I was only able to get this skirt and a belt, both on clearance, of course. Still, $50 free dollars is better than zero free dollars. :)
