Oh, J. Crew Factory, why do you do the things you do to me? I saw this skirt in a J. Crew store over spring break, and I immediately fell hard for it, but I couldn't afford it at full price. A few months later, I saw it again at an outlet store for about $40, which, while much cheaper than the original price, was still more than I wanted to spend. I scrolled past it a few times once I saw it had made it to the Factory website, but I always found a way to talk myself out of it. Then, miraculously, the price dropped more, and there was a discount code floating around a few weeks ago. And so, my dream skirt became mine for $14, and my life would never be the same. It's a truly a beauty, isn't it? The only problem is that I'm not sure I can find another way to style it that I'll like as much as this one. I'm fairly positive it was made to be worn with this collared top, burgundy cardigan, and booties. It's pretty much all I ever want to wear.
My weekend was nice and relaxing, with the exception of work and a fun night at a piano bar. I'll never be a huge bar person, but even I can get into the spirit of a piano bar. We went out to surprise my best friend's mom (who's like a second mom to me) for her birthday, and I was incredibly happy that she ended up loving it. Other than that, I spent a lot of time catching up on sleep on Saturday, spending some time at my brother and sister-in-law's house, and watching too much "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." I hadn't really given it a chance before, but I already love it. Any show created by Mike Schur (creator of "Parks and Rec" and long-time writer on "The Office") is a winner in my book.
I have an unusually busy week ahead complete with a couple of phone interviews, seeing Jenny Lewis, spending time with an old friend in town, and more. I already can't wait, and I can't wait to ramble on about how great it all is after.
