back to work

hi readers!

how sad, the weekend is over and back to reality and another work week now.  the only good thing about that is i get to wear a new outfit i have been planning for sometime now.  i was on a shopping ban the latter part of this weekend because i went a little crazy at jcrew and then ebay (im collecting old anthro catalogs)  on friday.  but the shopping ban worked out ok because it made me do the laundry and ironing i have been putting off all week, including ironing the skirt in my OOTD.

the j crew no. 2 cotton pencil skirts are growing on me.  i have stayed away from them in the past because although they fit well, i feel like they wrinkle so easily.  but i just loved this neon rose color.  it is so vibrant and not cheap looking or that color i hate, if it were an OPI color it would be called "grandma's coral lipstick".  this skirt is NOT coral, it is bright orange with a hint of fuschia.  i'm liking this return of neon colors.  it is a nice pop of color in outfits.  it brings me back, too.  i was a wearer of neon pink and neon yellow socks (yes, one of each color on each foot) when i was a youngster.  sigh*

jcrew carnation necklace
jcrew valentina pumps weathered rose
banana republic clutch dark green (old)

so what is the POTD?  i bought these beauties at anthro when they went on sale.  they are comfortable as far as i can tell (i have only been strolling around the house in them).  the color is great - i think the picture makes them look more lavender than in person; the color seems more pink than purple.  whatever the color is, it looks nice with my skin tone and i think they will go with a lot.  and best of all, they are cute!  i love the little cut outs in the front and the flower do-dad is really adorable too.  yeah buddy! 

don't forget to check out roxy's blog for the anthro sale update!  good night readers  :)
