April showers bring May flowers...and a challenge!

Ladies, meet the skirt that I wore under my tunic last time
Skirt that I wore under my tunic last time, meet the ladies.

I know, I know, I practically just wore this. But, isn't it wonderful to be able to remix items so? It is :)

Please ignore my eyes in some of these photos, the sun was staring at me.

And, there's actually a specific reason why I'm wearing this skirt again. Dana over at Daily Dose of Dana mentioned This May Outfit Inspiration Calendar by Kimberly from Fab Finds Under $50 and I love it! She basically gives you a small style tip/challenge for each day of May. Today was the first day and the tip/challenge was Color Combo: Magenta, Black & White

Hence, I wore this skirt. By the way, I don't plan on sticking to this hard core...it's just something to take cues from each day. A little less standing in front of my closet since I'll be looking for specific things. I am quite the indecisive gal.

For instance, I had a hard time deciding how to accessorize because I liked too many of my options. Ugh, I just reminded myself of a Sonic customer from back in the day when I used to work at Sonic who asked for drink options, but after I started listing the endless possibilities, she said there was too many and drove off. Customers :P

Also, I got my Charlotte Russe jacket today. I was like yay yay yay yay yay! until I saw the size. Medium. :( It's too big for me and like all things too big for me, it is now in the hands of my mother. She's already planning to wear it over the Holidays. Hehe. At least it found a new, good home :) But, thanks anyway for all the congratulations! I always feel like I have zero chance of winning a giveaway. This one, I entered without even knowing what the prize was until I was notified that I had won. Even then, they didn't tell me what it was. I had to look thru Charlotte Russe's previous tweets to find out. Haha :P

What I'm wearing:
Magenta skirt: Love Culture
White tube top: F21
Black halter vest: Ehh...I think it's from Love Culture, too
Sunflower necklace: Thrifted
Black & silver earrings: F21
Black & white flower flats: Soda

Well guys, I think I've rambled enough. Thank you for reading, commenting, following. All the goooood stuff that makes me happy :) I have tons of blogs to check out and comments to return. Fun! ♥

Of what use is something, if it goes with just one other thing??? Mixing and matching creates variety with lesser number of clothes! ;)

And I love the way you started the post off.. The Ladies were very happy to meet your skirt! :P
