Green, Stripes & Hot Pockets.

Hi Girls. How has this week gone so far for you? What is the weather like where you live? And most importantly WHAT ARE YOU WEARING these days?

I am not kidding when I say I miss shopping in USA, I miss it A TON. Had I been there now I would check out the Spring collections over at The Limited, Loft, Express, Nine West, H+M, White House Black Market, Bebe, Gap, J.Crew, Banana Republic, Forever 21 & Old Navy. So many great brands, such cute clothes and very little money for me to shop with. But as usual, I would find some good or even great deals and use all the coupons possible to get my hands on at least some of my favorite pieces. =) I love all the above stores a lot, especially the first 6 or so lol.

Today I satisfied myself a little bit for all things Loft and Express by wearing these brands (currently). The vivid Hot Pinks & Magenta helped brighten my mood even more. I have on quite a cute and colorful outfit if I say so myself. =P

But let's move on to the outfit of the day. This is one of my most favorite black skirts. I own a lot of black skirts, especially pencil and A-line styles. This is one of my favorites because it features pockets (love), a few stylish pleats up front, a built-in ribbon (for decoration?!) on the waist tab and it is the perfect length. I also love that it is slightly A-line and is all lined. The soft 100% cotton material makes it so easy to take care of. I also love stripes so purchasing this multi-colored stripped cardigan for less than $10 when I came to Tirana, was a no-brainer for me. I think the dark Forest Green in some of the stripes plays off well with the teal of my tee which features pretty silk ruching towards the boat neckline. And to add some pizzazz to the outfit, I am wearing my awesome Betsey Johnson, leopard print tights.
