Daily Threads: Trash and Trash Bags

{top: old navy | skirt: F21 | tights: target | boots: steve madden}


Weird post title, huh? Not really. First of all, I finally found myself a trash-bag skirt! I was oh, so excited to stumble across one in F21 last week! That store can most definitely become overwhelming, but a little time and patience can really pay off! I've wanted a trash-bag skirt forevvvvver. I love this one too! It is the perfect color, it's linen, and it was inexpensive. Ah, don't you love a great score? Second, see that piece of trash behind me? There were several other pieces of trash lingering around behind this garage. Pretty lame - I hate litter. I thought about moving it, as it disturbs the aesthetics of the pictures; however, it suits the skirt well.

Such a cute outfit! I love that the skirt has pockets - I am a sucker for any skirt or dress with pockets!! Love the colors within this ensemble too!

Lovve that skirt and even more excited that you got it from F21 recently! Ours in Charleston just opened up but I'm not stepping foot in there for atleast another month b/c of all the horror stories I've heard about how crazy it is in there right now..off to look for the skirt online! :)

Love this outfit! And haha, it's just funny that you call them trash bag skirts- I refer to them as paper-bag skirts. :)

F21 shopping definitely requires patience! They do have good stuff, but often so hard to dig through everything.

Natasha said...

I love your trash bag skirt!
Your hair looks amazing in these pictures!

So stinkin' cute! Love this look! I've wondered if I could pull off that kind of skirt... I think I may try after seeing you.
And totally agree on litterbugs. BOO.

Jilliebeanie said...

Forever 21, huh? I sure would like to own that skirt. You look great, as usual.

LIZ said...

I agree that Forever 21 can be a little overwhelming! But this skirt is proof that with a little patience - good things can come your way. Now if I only I fit into F21 sizes. Maybe then I would have more patience.

What a great outfit lady! And your hair looks great.

Pixie in Pumps said...

so cute! And I rarely ever DON'T feel overwhelmed in Forever21. I have to go in there looking for something specific if I'm going in there at all or I just get frustrated and leave with nothing! I guess that's good for my wallet though.

Law Mama said...

Adore that skirt! I've been looking for one myself, but I can't justify the purchase quite yet. Maybe I'll hop over to F21...

Just discovered you on Hello, Monkeyface! Bookmarking for now. I live that skirt! I guess I have one that fits the trash bag description, but I tend to cover the waistband. That magenta(?) is gorgeous!

P.S. You gots to thank husband for me, I am so excited to have my first (sort of) male fan :D

Melanie said...

Ironic, indeed. First off, that skirt looks fabulous. Secondly, don't you love when you see someone throw garbage on the ground? I actually went after a lady on the subway who threw her newspaper on the ground. I picked it up, told her she must have accidentally dropped it and handed it back to her. She then proceeded to throw it on the train, but at least it wasn't outside, right? Some people are such slobs.
