WIWW - Dresses and skirts

It's time again to link up with The Pleated Poppy. It's been so hot here lately and my work activities have actually allowed me to wear skirts, so I've worn a skirt or dress most of the past week to work to keep cool.

Skirt, cardigan- Belk's;
ruffle shirt- TJMaxx; shoes- ???;
bangle bracelets- JCPenney

Dress- Target (clearance $13.98);
 cardigan- Old Navy clearance;
shoes - Target (clearance $4.98!!) Necklace- Piperlime

Let me elaborate on this outfit. The dress is a sleeveless sheath and I jumped for joy at finding it in the clearance rack. I can definitely get my money out of it. I can wear it to work now with a cardigan or jacket, wear it away from work without any sleeves, wear it with boots in the winter with a long sleeve shirt underneath- so many options, and it's machine washable! This girl does not like a dry cleaning bill.

Here's a close up of the pleating on the dress:

Oh and did you see the shoes! I already had them in brown and love them, but when I saw them at $4.98 I had to have them in black too.

Jacket- Dress Barn;
skirt- Goodwill (also Dress Barn);
shoes- Zappos

While I love a good deal, I will pay a little more for the right shoes, and these are suprisingly comfortable.

This dress and these shoes are so old I've forgotten where they came from. Not sure I even like it anymore, but it's comfortable.

The butterfly earrings are one of my favorites and the bracelet came out of my antique store find.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're keeping cool as well.


  1. You look great, and it is even better when you get a bargain I agree!

  2. Those are awesome outfits!! I am already wondering if I can copy that first one because I think I have very similar colors in my own closet.

    Followed you here from WIWW!



Thanks for your kind words! I love hearing from you.
