This is a jean skirt style reminiscent of the 80's and has the potential to be on the dork side. It's so old I don't even remember when I bought it but the tag reads Chadwicks. I remember the catalog from years ago and a quick search revealed that they have a website with fun preppy clothes.
On the positive note on this blouse, it does add a little cute factor to the potentially boring skirt. It never hurts to have Coraline the cat enhance the outfits too.

Skirt: Old Chadwicks of Boston. Similar, only pencil style with white dots. Dot Print Denim
Necklace: J.Crew Factory from last year.
Belt: Old Anthropologie fabric belt.

This Arcata Dress by Weston Wear got a blurry picture, but the dress itself is surprisingly comfortable. The top has a nice stretch so I went for my regular t-shirt size of small. I wish listed this one, but it's not number one on my list.
A lot of times I seem to be between sizes and the 50's style Rhododendron dress is a good example of this. The picture above is a size 4 and the one below is a 2. The 4 is more comfortable so I have wish listed this size. Because this is hot pink and one of my favorite silhouettes, I can't wait for it to hit sale.
I have been in love with Maxi dresses lately and I have also enjoyed Megan Draper's style in Mad Men. The green print reminds me of the early 70's maxi dresses that the character has been wearing in the current season.
This dress is comfortable and very pretty but I wish the shoulder area was more of a traditional sheath style. It reveals more of the shoulder area which means you need a special bra. I really don't want to have to go bra shopping for this dress. It is so lovely that if it gets marked way down, I may go for it or I could just hold out for another Megan Draper dress to come along. But oh, the print is gorgeous!
Dress No.1: Arcata Dress by Weston Wear.
Dress No 2: Rhododendron Dress by Moulinette Soeurs.
Dress No 3: Maravilla Maxi Dress by Maeve in green.

Lately I have witnessed some fun photo opportunities but have been too lazy to rush over for a quick picture. Instead of me posed in front of this Book Fair sign, for example, I could have been posing with Clifford the Big Red Dog. Someone in the costume was walking around the night of the school Open House, and I hesitated because I just really had had enough of the over stimulation of so many parents and kids mulling about.
So, having a picture in front of a Book Fair sign is OK and part of my reality as an elementary school mom. And to add some fashion touches is a J.Crew Factory pencil skirt and Anthropologie necklace I purchased earlier in the year.
The second picture of me is basically an excuse to show off Coraline the kitty. The long sleeved top with this skirt looked too frumpy and didn't work as well.
Necklace: Anthropologie Garden Vignette purchased in January of this year.
Skirt: J.Crew Factory pencil floral skirt.
Shirt: Old Victoria's Secret.
Shoes: Lands End Gatas Canvas Slip On.

The collection was very heavy on floral prints that were reminiscent of the 50's. This sleeveless top I'm wearing has a zipper in the back, giving it more of a vintage feel.
So I think of it as, basically a shirt store.
Shirt: Old Target Merona.
Jeans: Liz Claiborne Jackie jean by Isaac Mizrahi, purchased at Ross. Isaac Mizrahi designed for Liz Claiborne for only one year in 2009.
Cardigan: J.Crew Factory grey cardigan. The Clare, very similar to the J.Crew Jackie.
Shoes: Isaac Mizrahi for QVC. Pink flats.
