my pencil skirt -- that's the answer to the riddle.

i found this skirt at the outlet mall while on vacation last weekend and it just screamed "buy me!" i don't know about you, but i'm not one to disobey the orders of a work of art that can also double as a pencil skirt.

plus, it's black and white so it can be worn in any season. i already have big dreams for this baby come winter time. i'm thinking tights and booties and a nice chunky sweater will suit her just right.

also, my new jewels from J Crew are just my favorite. i'm not much of a necklace girl - i'm actually kind of boring when it comes to jewelry. i tend to wear studs, a couple of my favorite rings, and my watch + a bracelet or two. i've wanted to be that girl that wears the statement necklace with a collared blouse...and now i am. and i like it. it just adds a fun pop and helps me style all my collared blouses a new way. you know how i am about mixing things up. if you don't, i'm kind of terrible. i'm a repeater when it comes to everything -- food, clothes, hairstyles. you name it, i probably do the same thing over and over again until i just can't stand it anymore. and then never do it again. that's normal, right?

  1. I'm going to have to try this necklace over a collared shirt thing. Love it! That's totally normal btw.
