You know sometimes you'll have your eye on a piece of clothing at a store for a while, trying to decide if you want to buy it or not? Sometimes it's because this item is trendy but you're not sure if it'll mix well into the rest of your closet? That was this blue skirt. I eyed it for nearly a year before finally purchasing it about three months ago. And guess how many ways I wear it? One. You are looking at it.
How is a blue skirt so hard to style? How do you do this, guys?
Also, can I say that when I saw this necklace in the store, I had no intention of getting it? But my husband tends to be drawn to flashy jewelry like a fish to a fishing lure: the shinier and more noticeable, the better. For whatever reason, Matt goes gaga over the type of colorful crystal-looking bead that you see in this necklace, so I honestly bought it to appease him (plus he held onto it while we shopped, so I didn't really have a choice ;). And I've honestly never been complimented on a necklace more than this one!
Lesson learned, ladies: Listen to your husband. He's always right about fashion.*
