The Fluted Skirt

I waited so patiently for this skirt. I first saw it on the J. Crew website sometime last year, but at $98 it was out of my price range. Then I started seeing it on blogs everywhere and they released it in a bunch of great colors and I wanted it. Every time J. Crew had a sale, I’d check to see if it was discounted.

Fast forward to a couple of months ago when this skirt went on final sale. I thought to myself, “Ok, now’s the time to buy this.” Then I got an email about their sale on sale (my favorite kind of sale) and the skirt was now $19.99, which is about 80% off the original price. There was no more hesitation after that. I already had the skirt in my cart online and I checked out then and there.

Since the skirt was on final sale, I was a little worried that it wouldn’t fit (there’s no returns on final sale). Happily, it did fit and now I’m kicking myself for not buying the black version when they still had it in my size. I think this skirt is classic, easy to dress up and down, and can work in any season. When we visited the High Line, it was fairly warm and I could pair this skirt with light separates. It’s part of my fall capsule wardrobe and I can’t wait to wear it with some ankle boots and tights (actually, scratch that last part, I’m holding out on tights for as long as I can!).

    • Thank you Kat! I’ve had this cardigan for ages but it’s still holding up :)

  • Ugh now I feel like I should have gotten the navy! It’s a really nice color.

    I think my black one would be too big for you, otherwise I would let you borrow it.

    • I didn’t know you had the black version of this skirt! I’m not sure if I’ve see you wear it!

  • This skirt looks so lovely on you!
