I had my sister-in-law ask recently how often I go "shopping".  To be honest, most of my shopping happens on a whim.  Whether I'm at the mall for a quick stop at Sephora or the MAC store, or running to Target for groceries, or taking my kiddos for a cupcake, I always keep my eyes peeled for steals & deals.  That exact scenario is what happened when I found this skirt!

I was taking my girls for a cupcake date at an outdoor mall.  After cupcakes we ran to Ulta for a few necessities, & while we were at it I hopped into Banana Republic.  Yay for me, they were having an additional 40% off clearance items that day so, of course, I had to look around.  This beauty (originally priced at $79.50) is now mine to the tune of $7.96!!  Yep, less than $8.00!!  As I said, it was an additional 40% off sale at the time, plus I had $20 in rewards cash to put towards the purchase.

I also need to take a moment and praise the clerk who helped me.  The store I was in actually didn't have the size I needed.  My sales consultant was nice enough to track down the right size for me from another store (in Washington D.C. I might add).  The two consultants then assisted me through the transaction over the phone & it was shipped to my door for free & gave they me 50% off the sale price (rather than 40%)!  Good customer service right there!!

Alright, enough talking about the skirt...here are a couple ideas on how I'll be wearing the skirt. 

For Work:  I simply paired it with a bright knit scoop neck tee, a large beaded necklace, & peep toe heels (all of which are from past seasons, sorry).

For the Weekend:  This time around I pulled out my trusty Graphic Tee & gladiator sandals then added a pop of color with a necklace.  Again, all of these pieces are from past seasons.

So there you have it - my steal of a deal.  I love this skirt - the cut & length make it feel super girly, which is okay every now & again, right?!  I highly encourage everyone to keep your eyes peeled whenever you are out & about - when you're at the right place at the right time, magic happens!

  9. Your skirt is adorable and I love it with the Pink top. My very first striped b+w skirt I purchased, I've also worn it with a hot pink top for the first time. As a matter of fact it is one of my very first outfits I ever posted on the blog, back 4 years ago. =) You look so cute, Kellie. =)
