So before I talk about anything else, I have to mention the ridiculous steal this skirt was. A woman was selling this J. Crew lace pencil skirt for $10 at a yard sale, NEW WITH TAGS. Apparently, she just didn't know what to wear with it. My aunt Linda spotted it and bought it from her for $5, but it ended up being too big for her, so she passed it along to me. Excitedly, I tried it on right away and it was a perfect fit. I was absolutely thrilled! It sat unworn in my closet all summer, but when I had an opportunity to wear it, I understood why the woman had trouble figuring out what to wear with it. Because I did not need to be super dressed up, I decided to take a risk and pair a simple striped tee and cardigan with it. I am really happy with how the look turned out and I can't wait to style it differently throughout the fall and winter.
