I don't care to admit how many times I have made a J. Crew purchase in the past week. Furthermore, I don't care to admit how many J. Crew stores all over my lovely state that I have traveled to in the past week as the sale is going on. However, for those in the know, you have to grab what you like at J. Crew because if you don't, someone else will.

 These skirts were purchased on separate days over the past week at three different stores (as if that somehow saves me money on my credit card bill! On the left is the Gardenshade Floral No. 2 Pencil Skirt. It makes me feel as though I am wearing a Claude Monet watercolor! The skirt in the middle is the Superfine Cotton Pencil Skirt in Navy. I was a bit iffy about a navy skirt but I was eager to get away from my standard black skirts.  And boy was I surprised to see a superfine cotton skirt sitting on its own on the sale rack, with 30 off, and in my size! I think that ended up priced on sale by mistake as it rang up full price but the SA adjusted it to reflect the markdown. I wore the navy skirt today with a bright color top and received many compliments. The skirt on the right is the Postage Stamp Big Apple Mini Skirt. I was a bit iffy about buying a miniskirt as I am more of a pencil skirt girl. However, one of the advantages of being 5'3 is that mini skirts can still look work appropriate on my frame. I think that skirt will work great with neutrals. I liked the store mannequin look which paired the skirt with a chambray skirt.
