A Skirt to Make You Feel Up Beat!

Sometimes J. Crew has special items that are available only though Nordstrom, like this tropical print pencil skirt. I honestly don't know how I stumbled across it but I know that it's not something that is offered on J. Crew's regular site (and I have a fairly extensive knowledge of it!) and only seems to be available through Nordstrom. Well, it was love at first sight, plus I had a gift card and I also had $20 in rewards cash from Nordstrom (I actually didn't even know I was enrolled in this program, so it was a pleasant surprise!), so it was a very good deal. All in all, I was definitely pretty up beat over my new skirt purchase!

I wore this outfit last week to a wine dinner and I added a cardigan over this statement tee to make the look a bit more dressy for the occasion; plus, on that particular day, it was actually somewhat cool, both outside and in the restaurant, so my decision to wear the sweater was also driven by practicality. I accessorized the look with these polka dot platform sandals. I must say that even though these aren't high, the platform style does take some getting use to, as I kind of felt like I was rocking back and forth while walking in them! Nevertheless, these sandals are super cute and also got me a lot of compliments as I was walking down the street, which definitely put a spring in my step, even though it's summer!
