My New Favorite Skirt

Am I the only one that gets excited to check my mailbox every day once I have ordered something online? I love turning the key, slowly opening the little door, peaking in with one eye shut, hoping that there is something, other than junk mail and bills, tucked away deep inside. 

After checking the mail five days in a row, it finally arrived, my new favorite skirt!  You are probably thinking to yourself, "Really, this girl gets excited about a $23.00 skirt from Forever 21?"  Yep, I really do and did! I know, I am not 21 anymore, but Forever 21 is still my go-to store and it takes up the majority of my closet.  Just because you are past your twenties doesn't mean you aren't allowed to shop there anymore .  They have so many lines now that fit all sizes and shapes of women, it's super affordable, they carry all the latest trends, have an abundance of accessories and did I mention affordable?   I will also say that they have really stepped up their quality.  I have things from Forever 21 that have lasted longer than some of my higher end, "splurge" items.

Anyway, back to my new favorite skirt.  I was so excited to try it on that {embarrassingly enough} I put together this outfit without having anywhere to go.  When you get something in the mail, do you immediately start trying it on with other things you already have in your closet?  Or am I the only one?  I hope not.

I wanted to share my new fab find with you ladies.  So, I grabbed my camera last night and kindly asked the hubs if he would, once again, take a few pics of me for this post.  We walked next door to my neighbor's house {I needed a new backdrop} and we snapped these up.  Please don't judge.  I just wanted to get this up ASAP in case you wanted to make the purchase too.  Stuff goes fast online and in the stores. 

Skirt:Forever 21 | Top:Old Navy | Belt:From Another Dress | Shoes:Aldo | All Jewelry:Forever 21

What is your new favorite purchase?

Cheers to checking the mail, new skirts and husbands that take pictures of their crazy wives!

Love the way you mixed all the colors of the skirt into into the rest of your outfit. I love that feeling of waiting for something in the mail, too.. that's why it's so much fun to order online!! lol. This is proof that you don't have to spend a lot to look fabulous :)

That skirt is awesome!!!! I've been hunting for like literally almost a YEAR (so sad) for printed skirts and though I've tried on a million, none of them fit me right. I finally found one yesterday from MNG. Besides my new skirt, my fave pieces are my moto jacket and beige blazer, both from Forever 21 too!

Oh getting things in the mail is always my fav!! You aren't alone. I don't do a ton of online shopping just because of shipping costs, but I was in F21 a couple days ago and glanced at this skirt before having to leave. Definitely love the pops of color!! You are adorable!

So funny, I just bought this skirt over the weekend! I haven't worn it yet but this post makes me even more excited to! Also, great job pairing it with that bright blue necklace, really brings out the blue in the skirt.

Oh! Look at all those colors, I love it! You could wear so many different colored tops with this skirt and you could dress it up or down. Fantastic find at that price!
I also have to try on new outfit looks when I purchase a new item, so much fun. My new favorite purchase would have to be this simply, but cute, black ballet flats from Target, $15
