Soft azalea + snakeskin print

Shrunken shawl collar cashmere cardigan in soft azalea:  J.Crew, 2008
Wool No. 2 pencil skirt in snakeskin print:  J.Crew, fall 2012
Taupe ruffle silk top:  J.Crew, 2010
Brown tights: J.Crew, fall 2012
Heels:  Mojo Moxy, DSW
I must admit, I originally bought this skirt based mostly on price.  It got marked way down, and then an extra 30% off.  But it really grew on me, and now it's one of my favorites.  I love that it's neutral enough to pair with every color, and the fit is great.  I find that I can sometimes be blinded by a good sales price only to get the item home and have a "what was I thinking?" moment.  Thankfully this skirt doesn't fall into that category.

Hope everyone is having a great Monday!  Thanks for visiting.

  1. I do like this skirt and how you paired it with this color top. I was able to go to J. Crew this weekend and pick up a few items on sale!

  2. Love this outfit! Pink works well with the snakeskin. I, too, have this skirt, which I purchased on sale, but I haven't yet worn it. I must though, because no sale is a good deal unless you WEAR the item! LOL!

    1. Yes you need to just do it! It seems bold but once you have it on you will love it! :)

  3. The soft azalea color is beautiful, but I still cannot get over the snakeskin print! My mom even bought me a snakeskin purse for Christmas and I shudder just thinking about it. Some childhood memories just can't be forgotten I guess! I'm glad that you found the skirt to be a good purchase, and you definitely wear it well.
