Here’s a sentence no woman has ever uttered out loud, “the sales need to stop.”
I’m not saying they need to stop, but this time of year when the discount signs start becoming complex math problems, it starts to get mentally overwhelming (“Extra 35% off everything that’s been marked down 40% x 2 divided by 14!”). What I like to do when I’m shopping July sales, is keep an eye out for those transitional pieces that I can get on super discount. That way I’m not just buying for the here and now, I’m stocking up for the coming cooler months.
This skirt is a great example of what I’m talking about.
It’s got a denim quality to it, making it perfect for both the summer and fall months. It sits right at my natural waist line, which means I get more use out of shorter tops by tucking them in. And I can throw a sweater and a scarf over the whole thing later on to make the outfit fall appropriate. The pictures also prove that it can work in the office, or running errands.
Skirts, jackets, lightweight sweaters (especially cardigans), darker colored tops – all of these things will work well in your wardrobe for months to come, so keep an eye out!
(I purchased this skirt at Forever21 a couple years back, but you can find a similar denim pencil skirt at The Limited).
