I spotted this mint maxi skirt at Ross as I was headed to the register a few weeks ago. For $11.99, who could resist a trendy splurge? The lining isn’t the greatest as it creeps up, and the elastic black waistband isn’t exactly the sign of world class craftsmanship, but again, it was $11.99. I have worn it a couple of times already, both times with a simple black tank tucked in, sandals and then played it up the accessories. On this particular day I paired it with an old but well loved black tank by Halogen from Nordstrom, chunky gold bracelets, (one vintage, one a gift from hubby on his trip to London) drop earrings by local jeweler Madeleine O’Connell (her jewelry lines Gracious Lupita and Black Poodle can be found at Denver boutique The Perfect Petal and she also made the jewelry for my wedding in 2011 as seen on her website), hair scooped back into a ponytail with a Black Tie holder by local jeweler Lindsay Bloom, and a pair of black gladiator sandals by Matt Bernson that I scooped up for $5 from last year’s Dress for Success Bring Your Own Bag Boutique Sale, (happening again this year on July 27th!!!). Have you jumped on the mint green band wagon yet? What has been your best summer buy so far? In closing, you really MUST go to the Dress for Success sale at the end of this month- it’s crazy good! A friend also told me that Steve Madden has generously donated a ton of shoes for it! Get last seasons’ clothing from local boutiques for seriously minimal cash.
