Wu hoo

Yay for Jason Wu.
I knew I was going to like his collection before I even saw the look book, but after spending the day wearing some of the most lovely clothes, I am in love with the collection. This skirt was number one on my list of things to get and I am so glad I was able to. The pleats are perfect, its got a lovely swing, and I know I'm going to get a lot of use out of it, a black skirt is always in style. The blue top, however, wasn't even on my radar, but I'm so glad I took a chance. It has some really lovely detailing and the color is awesome. Its springy but I don't feel like an Easter egg. I added some red lipstick for a little extra pop and the flower belt to tie it all together.

Today was busy, lots of meetings and lots of activity. I also spent the day saying "thank you" as every woman in my office complimented my outfit. The ladies in my office are all different ages and I love that pieces are timeless enough that everyone agreed they were lovely.
At lunch I noticed Target was randomly making certain Jason Wu items available again on the website. I managed to snag the dress I most wanted and one of the yellow tops! I was also quick enough to get the word out and some of my friends snagged items they'd wanted as well. After all this Wu madness I'm attempting a bit of a shopping hiatus, I should be set with many pretty things for a while.

  1. Ooh, looks very cute! I liked the look of the black pleated skirt, but it'd be too short for me. (And I'm super bummed I missed out on Sunday morning with y'all.)

    1. Thank you, the skirt is way more awesome than I could have hoped for. We missed you on Sunday! We'll have to plan another adventure for the next designer collaboration and this time, we'll tell your sinuses to behave!

  2. I got that shirt too! It's so cute and I totally didn't expect it either. I almost wore it today with a black skirt and black cardi, even.
