Oh hey, happy Monday! We have no school today but I am at a District Golf match with Collin. It was a jam packed weekend with Vex Robotics Competition all day Saturday, homecoming Saturday night, our 23rd anniversary Sunday, and golf today. The kitchen renovation continues too but no worries, I’m getting used to washing dishes in the garage utility sink #liar.
Here’s something I am totally not lying about! This HIKA Women’s Retro High Elastic Waist Flare Pleated A-line Midi Skirt for under $20. After seeing it on Sarah of Foxy’s Domestic Side here. I knew I had to have it! Funny story though. I ordered it and with my Prime membership it should have arrived on a Friday. It didn’t. I called Amazon on Saturday and they told me that sometimes things get left on the truck because it got late and I should ignore the fact that the order tracker on the website says it was delivered. Hmmmmm…okay. If it didn’t arrive by Monday at 5 I was told to call back. Call back I did because, you guessed it, the SKIRT NEVER ARRIVED. Who has time for this tomfoolery? Not me. I called back and as nice as pie explained the dilemma. This customer service rep told me the skirt had in fact been delivered to a different address and they’d issue a refund. What? If I still wanted the skirt I had to order it again. Here’s the kicker, there were only a few left when I placed the original order! And yes, I get anxious over missing out on an $18 skirt especially since some other woman is wearing the skirt I ordered! It’s all good, as you can see I have a picture of the skirt that almost wasn’t below. I’m planning on featuring it in a post next week, it’s super cute and totally worth the hassle. I still love Amazon and my Prime membership and their customer service reps because they were all so nice and I totally understand that mistakes happen. Enough of all that take a look at this skirt you simply have to have!
Versatility is key. When I look at the clothes I reach for over and over they are pieces I wear so many different ways. First up take a look at this casual look featuring the skirt. The skirt is well made, it’s lined and although it zips up the back of the waist is elasticized. I wore a simple camisole and a bright green cardi but a denim jacket would be great too. My flat nude shoes look like I am wearing nothing on my feet!
You know you don’t have to spend a lot of money to wear a piece for a dressier occasion. By adding a glitzy little belt and some heels this skirt could easily go for a more formal event. Definitely not a black tie event mind you but you know what I’m saying – a night out or other special event. It’s a great versatile piece! Another versatile piece is this leopard clutch for under $40. If you haven’t gotten yet you better, it is so good and I’ll bet it doesn’t last long.
I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that this skirt that almost wasn’t was! Have you ordered clothing from Amazon? I hope you’re inspired to try something new. A skirt like this can be flattering on any shape. Keep in mind when you go fuller on the bottom a slimmer top looks best. Here’s a close up of my new necklace I’ve worn several times since it arrived. I love it!
Here’s hoping your Monday is marvelous! Thank you so much for stopping by and reading the blog today. On Wednesday I’ll update you on the Common Threads Challenge so I hope to see you then.
Make it a great day!
