Election Day

11.1.10d{Shop: Similar Blazer, Skirt, Necklace, Shoes}
I know that I linked my skirt up there but don’t buy it online. I got it in store for $4. So basically Target is paying me to wear this skirt. Okay, that’s flawed logic but still don’t buy it online. Or else. Or else what you ask? Or else you’ll pay $12 too much, I’m just trying to help here. Don’t get so defensive. 
So I voted today. Did you? If you are over 18 and breathing, then you should have said yes to that question. If you did not, I’ll let this one slide as I did not vote in the 2004 election. Instead I was lured by a boy I had a major crush on to go see a movie and bypass the voting altogether. I now realize the irresponsibility of my ways, 6 years later. Also, I’m pretty sure I bought dinner that night. A boy who does not pay for meals and does not vote? Thank goodness he ended up dumping me. But you know who didn’t dump me and who goes to vote with me each election year? Mr. Everyday. Now that is a love story if I’ve ever heard of one.

  1. Well hello lace skirt! I actually bought the same one for about $8… so a few bucks more. I loved it and never even wear skirts, but had to have it… I love this inspiration on how to style it. Because, obvs I need some inspiration if I haven't worn it yet. Although, it's not really appropriate for the Kindergarten pick up crowd… which means I'll need to invent a place to wear it! I'm on it!

    I have a similar shirt, and a similar jacket, and shoes I think would work with that… now I just need the skirt! Too bad I'm not in the States, and thus don't have a Target to score the deal!!
    (Also, not living in the States is my excuse for not voting)

    Dangit! I got my black version for $8 in store on clearance. I got it after watching Kyla (Blue Collar Catwalk) style it so many different ways. I love mine!
    Now, you too?! They never should have put this skirt on clearance because it's become the blogger go to. πŸ™‚

    I am not a fan of those shoes. πŸ™ Sorry. But I LOVE the rest of the outfit. I saw that skirt last night at Target. Cute! It'll probably look cute with some opaque tights for the winter too. Not sure how cold it gets there, but it's a thought. OOh! Speaking of, I bought these super cute purple'ish-pink tights last night at Target. They have like every color! $5! I want more!!

    LOVE the shoes – they do good things for your legs. The skirt isn't my cup of tea sadly….maybe w/some dark tights? Unfortunately, the color reminds me of underwear….but judging from the comments, that's just me.

    Pretty sure this outfit proves that YOU can put about anything together and be the cutest thing on the block! Who from my generation would think you could add bulky beads to a casual outfit, put a lace skirt with a striped top and wear clunky heels with the combo? But there you are – proving it can be done and getting lots of comments from girls affirming your fun styles! You amaze me!!! Added the weekly post to my Silver Crown Styles blogspot today. Maybe you have time to check it out.

    I have that skirt! I love it. It somehow doesn't seem as cheap as it was (I got mine from the clearance rack, for like 4 bucks, which makes me think it was pretty cheap to make indeed). Anyway, I adore the shoes and how you classed it up DC style with a blazer. Excellent!
