The Ann Taylor Polka Dot Jacquard Skirt...

Yes, it arrived yesterday.  Yes, I know that I just wore this blouse here a few days ago... but from the moment I saw this wonderful skirt, there was no other blouse in my closet that I wanted to pair it with.

I am so happy with the outcome. 

When I saw it, I did not hesitate.  I immediately jetted over to Ann Taylor Loft's Website and ordered my own.  LOVE IT!  When I saw the package in my mailbox last night I almost cried.  Kidding.

Seriously, I knew that it would get its debut today.  I simply could not wait to wear it.

It is only lunchtime and I have received numerous compliments.  Numerous.  One while waiting on DART this morning.  Two in the elevator coming up to the office.  Yet another from the shoeshine man down in the lobby.  Pause... breathe... Albert is one of my most valued fashion critics.  He has been "helping" me for years.  If Albert doesn't like something I wear, it is not likely to see the rotation again.  Hee Hee

Do any of you have a gentleman that you look to for advice/critics on your wardrobe?

Moving on...

Unfortunately, the pictures I took are less than ideal.  None of them really show the detailing in this lovely Jacquard Elongated Pencil Skirt from the Loft.  As of this post it was still available.

For this reason, I beg Lindsey's forgiveness for using this photo.  I hope that is okay?  Her pictures just do such a far better job of illustrating just how gorgeous this skirt truly is.  She has styled it pretty amazingly as well, huh?  If you have never read her blog (Saucy Glossie), you are missing out.  Impeccable style.

So on to my boring photos...

First, the skirt... It is the subtle polka dot detailing that makes it unique in my eyes.

Next, the blouse.  Again, that subtle polka dot pattern.  match made in heaven.


And together...

Throw in my lovely beige suede heels...

... and an ensemble has come together.

I am LOVING this outfit!  This combination is probably going to make regular appearances in the rotation.

Hee Hee

Is there anything in your closet that you find yourself wanting to wear all of the time?

Any combinations that just seem to keep calling to one another?

So now I am off to wonder the halls of our building in search of another compliment or two.  To obvious?

Hee Hee

Have A Wonderful Day!
