A diamond in the rough...

As I have talked about before, I am a frequent Target shopper. I am there probably once a week. Stocking up on baby stuff, paper towels, and other products that add up to $80 before you know it! I always do a run-through the ladies department, but as of late I have not found anything good. UNTIL last week. 

Tucked in the corner in the Juniors section was the most darling skirt. It is the palest pink you have ever seen...almost as light as a ballet slipper. It has a black elastic band and layers of small ruffles. Best part, this skirt is $16.99. To my dismay there were none left in my size...only XL's. Well, let me tell you I was DETERMINED to get this skirt. So, after multiple trips (in one week) just to see if one would show up, FINALLY my size was there! I promptly whisked it away and threw it in my cart! The skirt was mine!

I tried to find a link to it on Target's sight, but it is not available! You will have to check your local Target store. Sorry!

When I got it home and tried it on it made me even more happy! The fit is great and it hit right above the knee( a very flattering length) The color is great for spring with an open toe shoe, and for winter it will look fabulous with black opaque tights and my favorite bow shoes or slouchy boots. This is going to be my Holiday outfit, and I can't wait to wear it. Here is how I am going to accessorize it!

Suede platforms with grosgrain ribbon: Poetic License (2 years old...no longer available but there are some other great styles HERE)
Pale Pink Snakeskin Escada Bag (sorry...another old piece that is no longer available! It was the first gift from my husband 8 years ago)

Vintage Steuben Glass Strawberry Pendant
Forever 21 Laser Cut Earrings-something similar HERE

The top has not been decided yet, but, I will most likely be pairing it with this great Theory Short Sleeve Turtleneck top...


  1. Super cute skirt!!! I too stalk a store until they get my size in (good to hear I'm not the only one). When I'm on a mission, I'm on a mission...that outfit needs to come together come hell or high water!!
    The Escada bag matches purrrrfectly!

  2. i ALMOST bought that skirt myself!
    you are gonna be one hot mamma!!
