Leafy Greens

Shirt: Vintage, thrifted, $4 // Skirt: UO, $20 // Trench: Target kids' section, $18 // Tights: Target, $6 // Shoes: Worthington, from my sister

Here's what I wore to work yesterday. I just adore this shade of green (somewhere between forest and jade?) for fall, so I was excited to find these tights at Target. The skirt is part of my weekend shopping loot. It might be perfect. It's black, so it goes with anything. The pleating on the front adds interest. The tulip shape is flattering and work-appropriate. It's high-waisted. Not too long, not too short. Okay, you get the idea. I was home sick on Tuesday, so I was just glad to get dressed and out of the house. It was a perfect fall day.

I must check out Target ASAP! I've been looking for tights that shade but all they have at AA and similar stores are muted fall tones! :(

I am crushing on those tights, big time. I only have three pairs of tights in my yet-to-be-obtained tights collection, and teal is my next choice. Excellent!

I'm new to your blog, but I'm enjoying it very much, especially because you're putting together some truly adorable outfits without the increasingly familiar, anchoring presence of at least one item that screams "Money!" Props to you, Kansas, from Illinois!
