It is completely unintentional that so many of my outfits have revolved around a sort of nautical theme. I picked up this skirt about a month ago at one of those consignment shops where they pay you for your clothes. I don't typically shop at these kind of stores, but I was dropping off a few things that no longer fit into my mommy wardrobe and decided to have a look around while I waited.
The skirt is J. Crew from about eight years ago (so it sat in someone's closet for quite a while before they sold it). I remember when J. Crew had this skirt, because it was right after I quit working there and I couldn't justify buying it without my employee discount. Bonus, I now got it for much cheaper than my discount would have allowed. (Plus I am smaller than I was in college, so I have a skirt that fits me now instead of eight years ago). Can we talk about how fun this skirt is? I just love the sandy border along the bottom of the skirt and the fun details of the people vacationing. (Can you spot the water skiers? There's no boat pulling them . . .)
I rarely accessorize my outfits, especially with jewelry - mostly because I have only ever bought myself one piece of jewelry in my life. Yup, this necklace is it. It usually comes out in the summer because of the tropical feel. I remember when I used to wear it at work, I would get compliments followed by something along the lines of "but, you usually don't wear fun jewelry very often . . ."
