Sweater: H&M Skirt: Thrifted Necklace: Forever 21 Heels: Target Purse: London Fog via Burlington Coat Factory
Just so we keep things nice and honest around here, I did not end up wearing this exact outfit today. At the last minute, I decided that the skirt was just a touch too short to be considered office appropriate, and I ended up changing into a longer skirt. But I really hope I can find a place to wear this outfit, because this is one of exactly two outfits I have been able to come up with for this skirt (the other can be seen here).
I got the skirt because it was one of the least ugly things I could find when I first (and last) tried shopping at a thrift store (and by thrift store I mean consignment shop). Husband didn't like the skirt, and I think I just liked the color, without realizing the style might be a few years old, so I bought it. But I actually liked this possibly-outdated-layered-skirt situation paired with my favorite sweater from H&M (which I purchased this season and I've seen in other fun colors like indigo and emerald, and I'm considering picking them up too because I just love this sweater!). And the giant necklace (the one I so lovingly refer to around my apartment as "my fishtail necklace") kind of makes this outfit look holiday party-esque. So maybe I will find a way to wear it to one of the three holiday party's I'll be going to this year (doesn't that make me sound so popular? One work party a piece for myself and my husband, and a family party. Has there ever been anyone more socially active than me?).
