Dear Stitchfix: I’m sorry, but this month just wasn’t a winner for me. I’m a tad disappointed and I’ve cancelled our relationship until further notice. Besides, I’m not buying clothes anymore since I’m doing that whole capsule wardrobe thing. Idk, maybe it’s me and not you. Maybe I just don’t have the right body for your clothes. Or maybe it’s you.

Dear Grandma: I cried the other night, I miss you so much. It felt good to cry, but it didn’t make me miss you any less. I know this Christmas is going to be really hard for everyone. Remember that time you put all the money for all the grandkids in my Christmas card? I thought I was extra special that year! Turns out I wasn’t.

Dear Sean & Andrea: Thank you for going to Europe for 2 weeks so Ken and I can stay in your apartment this weekend. Nothing beats a free place to stay in a fun city like New York. We promise not to ruin anything.

Dear Friends: I’m hoping to find some fun postcards on my trips this year, would you like one? I think it’d be super fun to start sending people postcards when I go somewhere. So nostalgic.

Berry T and Navy Skirt

Good morning friends, how is everything going for you? I am so super pumped for the rest of my week. Tonight I’m having dinner with my Junior League friends before our meeting. I am so lucky that these women were in my provisional group. Friday Ken and I leave for Brooklyn where we’ll be all weekend. Hopefully I can get him to be behind the camera a lot so we can get some awesome pictures. What do you have going on this weekend?

Okay, let’s talk navy. Navy pencil skirts to be exact. For a few years I have been wanting a navy pencil skirt but it was never high on my priority list because, honestly, I struggled what shoes to wear with it! I know I wouldn’t want to wear black unless my top my was black (and I probably wouldn’t wear a black top with a navy skirt anyway). I don’t really wear heels so nude heels are out. I do have some nude flats I love and I am slowly building back up my flat collection. I actually just bought these two pairs (same shoe in leopard and brown) yesterday and both would go great with my navy skirt.

If you remember from this post I told you all about this skirt and how I loved it. Well I don’t and I’m returning it. Something about it is just off for me. I think I feel to vavavoom in it, which is easy to do with my curves. I think it just took it too over the top for me.

I was in Target the other day looking for this shirt (in berry and sour cream… weird name) and I meandered back to their work wear section because a camel blazer caught my eye (ended up not getting it; I’m not ready to spend $35 on a Target blazer) and I saw this navy skirt. I have never tried on pencil skirts from Target; I just figure they won’t work. But I grabbed it since I was going to the fitting room anyway, and what do you know? It fit wonderfully! And was cheaper than my Loft skirt. My only complaint is that I wish it were more blue.

I was so pleased with both purchases I decided to pair them together. I’m not too crazy about the shoes, but I didn’t have my new ones yet!

I had some admirers while I was photographing. These two stopped and stared at me the entire time I was photographing. Can you spot my friends?

Are you in the middle of a capsule wardrobe challenge? This two pieces are new to my capsule and I’m so glad I added them. How is your capsule going? How are transitioning into fall?
