First, please indulge me for a minute while I tell a roundabout story: I've been wanting a yellow pencil skirt for a while now (remember this?), and I thought I struck gold when The Limited had a 50% off sale on its website last week. I had put a yellow pencil skirt in my cart a while ago but was putting off buying it. Of course, when I went to buy it at the reduced price, it was no longer available! Luckily, I had to pick someone up in Albuquerque on Thursday night, so I went down early to stop by the mall. There were only about three yellow skirts left, and only one was close to my size, but alas, not close enough. Then, a saleswoman found my size on a mannequin and I was able to buy the skirt! It was 40% off in the store and I didn't have to pay shipping, so it ended up being a better deal than if I had bought the skirt online! Score.
This story has inspired the pins I want to share with you this week. The magazine I work at now has a very casual dress code, so I wear a lot of jeans and comfortable dresses, but I do need to update my wardrobe before I start my new job this summer. The following pins serve as inspiration for my forthcoming purchases.
Also, while I have you here, I need to buy a suit for the upcoming job. I already have a green pantsuit, but I want to buy a pencil-skirt-and-jacket suit as well. What are good suit colors for 20-something women? I was thinking a taupe or navy but would love your input! And now, for the pins (all taken from my If I Were Fashionable board, hence the post title):
And finally, I had a friend in town this weekend for Easter, so we ate out a lot. But, I did cook one delicious recipe from my Pinterest board:
Can't wait to see what everyone else is loving and pinning today!
