Happy Wednesday (or whatever day it is when you read this)!

I’m here with an outfit post featuring some oldies but goodies. I paired a bold printed skirt with a denim shirt, gold accessories and my new favorite shoes (I have them in brown as well). I am all about shopping your closet and getting the most use out of what you own. So I went in to the archives of my closet to find one of my favorite skirts that I purchased 2-3 years ago. I think a skirt like this is pretty much timeless. It goes with just about anything because of all of the colors and it can be dressed up or dressed down, which is always a plus. Take a closer look at my latest “What I Wore” post.

This is my niece. She’s wearing a pink dress from jc penney, and she accessorized with a pink and rose pearl necklace and bracelet. Isn’t she the cutest?

So I was fooled by the weather the other day. It was sunny and bright and I heard a lot of people outside so I said “It must be nice out.” Well the sun was out for about 26 seconds and then it started to rain. I was already out of the house and was not going back in to change. My shoes were not rain friendly, but I had to meet Melissa of O So Chic for our lunch date at Footprints for this rasta pasta that we have been dying for!

Because I thought it was nice I decided to wear my floral print jeans that I bought from Century 21 last August and a mint green top that I purchased from Forever 21. Take a closer look at What I Wore

These photos were snapped right before the rain storm came. We had to tie our scarves around our head and run in our heels to the car. It was funny. Oh and the highlight of the day, besides the food, was the guys playing basketball in the park BEGGING if they could be in our photos. One guy said to Melissa “Please can I take a photo with you, you can delete it later” I was in tears!

I’m getting better at this posing in the cold thing. I wish the spring weather would get here fast so I don’t have too lol.

I try not to be too trendy when it comes to my style. I love classic pieces and incorporating a trend or two in my looks. Some trends last for a season or two while others turn in to classics (hello leopard print). So one of the major trends of Spring 2013 is stripes, particularly black and white stripes. I love this trend. I’ve dedicated a few posts to this trend (check them out here and here). So I’ve been on the hunt for a black and white vertical stripe blouse because I refuse to pay $80 for the blouse at Zara.

Anyway, this look was inspired by this trend. I paired my favorite faux leather skater skirt with a mixed stripe long-sleeve shirt I remembered I had in the back of my dresser drawer dedicated to casual tops (my organization is sick). Anywhoooo, here is the look.

So today wasn’t a total drab weather wise. It is still quite chilly, which is normal around this time in the North East for Spring, but that didn’t stop me from stepping out to get a few outfit shots in. This look is perfect to transition in to spring. I can pair it with a leather jacket or a trench coat for the chilly weather.

What I Wore

Printed Jaclyn Smith top from K-Mart (I purchased almost two years ago.) I love this top because the print is so fun. It looks great with skinny jeans or leggings. It can be worn with our without the belt and even opened with a tank top underneath.

Pants from H&M (purchased almost two years ago) I love the color of these pants. I struggle with the fit around the waist which is why I always wear these pants with a tunic.

Analyn Boots from Just Fab  I love the mixed texture of these boots. You have the snakeskin texture in the front and on the platform and suede in the back. I always get tons of compliments when I wear these boots.

Belt from Forever 21 (It came with a shirt I purchased years ago)
