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*

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!
