  7. Love this outfit! That skirt is great. I am always amazed at ladies who manage to find treasures at F21. Sadly, everything is too short on me!

    1. I luck out sometimes with F21 because I am short but I definitely prefer shopping them online vs in-store. I feel like an old lady when I go in the stores, plus in-store I can't ever find anything!

    1. I don't know what I expect from H&M quality though, but the first time I used this bag with the shoulder chain, the chain broke on me! I fixed it when I got home, but it was a bit disappointing!

  14. You know I joined Pinterest like yesterday, and then went back through the starred items in my RSS feed reader and pinned you like 8 million times, right?

    I was thinking today I need a tee for my pencil skirts but am sick of the same ol' v-neck. Now this look of yours will get pinned and have me hunting for an asymmetical loose tee. Have I mentioned that I love you yet? :P

    I don't wear tanks or shorts, but got to come up with something to represent the 40+ crowd in the heat :)

      The asymmetrical tops are all over the place now in a ton of price points, so I am sure you won't have any prob finding a winner - plus, shoot, girl, you look good in practically everything anyways.
