A Pearl Tee Please

Did you guys have a nice weekend?  I certainly could have spent my weekend more productively, but I did have a good time with friends, as well as applied to a couple more jobs.  As graduation gets closer and closer, I get more and more nervous about finding a job!  But really, what I want right now is for this weather to make up its mind so that spring can come and stay!

cardigan, skirt, shoes- forever 21, tee- charlotte russe, tights- target

Since the warmer weather is not cooperating here, I had to wear tights with this outfit.  I got this t-shirt with the pearly neckline on sale at Charlotte Russe for $10 and I absolutely love it!  It gives the outfit a dressy feel and matches perfectly with my earrings.  Also, this skirt was a steal at Forever 21 for $6.80 and because of the waistband, I can easily fold it and wear it at different lengths.

Also, I ordered some things earlier in the week and these packages should be arriving tomorrow so I am quite excited!  No more shopping for a little while though as I need to earn back all the moola that I spent over spring break!  Has anybody else been doing some online shopping recently?  If so, what did you buy?

Send me a little hello on twitter– I’d love to chat with you! :D

    I have a tee very similar to that but since we're not allowed to wear jewelry to work, I'm afraid that will constitute as a necklace and it'll be banned! It's so pretty though! I really love that skirt too.

    I've bought a few things from Forever 21 online recently, I'm wearing one of those purchases today!

    Love the high-waisted skirt. It's really pretty with the t-shirt.
    Re cable-knit… I learned that a knitting machine can only do a 'fake cable' (like this: http://psynopsis-english.blogspot.com/2011/02/ballerina-infected-knitwork.html), whereas you did a 'real cable knit'.

    I spent my weekend reorganizing my room at my parents' house so it's actually a nice place to be. The comings and goings of college plus upgrading to a queen from a twin had left it in a state of total spatial inefficiency and neatly grouped clutter. So much better now!

    I looooove your pearl tee (it's so fun to say that, too!). What an awesome way to jazz up a nice basic like that.
