So many things going on today! First off, it's NAVY WEEK, so be sure to link up (after the jump) with your looks featuring one of my favorite neutrals. But more thoughts about navy later this week. (I know, the suspense must be killing you!).
Second, if you have been paying attention to the 30X30, you are probably like "flag on the play!" because 75% of this outfit is not in my official 30 items post. Well, here's what happened. It's Danielle's fault. Her floral skirt inspiration post reminded me that I wanted a multi-colored floral skirt. And then she went and linked to this one at Macy's, which is pretty much exactly what I had in mind. And it was on sale, and they were having an additional 30% off. So I ordered it with the full intent that it would be my 30th item.
Then, I just haven't worn either my white jeans or my anchor print tee. I think they are too similar to other items. I mean, the white jeans pretty much make the same outfit as the white shorts and the white skirt. Which makes it easy, but not really interesting. And the anchor print tee is white with navy/blue on it. Just like my floral oxford and striped tee. Again, great idea for easy remixing, but kind of boring. So I was planning on dumping those items. Which meant I had 2 open spots. I thought about not filling them. 28X30 would have been fine.
When this skirt arrived, I wanted to wear it the next day. And most of my 30 items were in the laundry. This space-dyed tank was hanging right at the front of my closet and it caught my eye. I was going to wear my navy flats, but I felt like the length of this skirt needed heels, so I grabbed my trusty nude pumps (which have been so neglected recently). I think they will play nicely enough with the rest of the items.
