Patience is a virtue

Ask anyone and they will tell you that I have no patience whatsoever. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Although as I have gotten older I have gotten better at delayed gratification. Mostly because my budget and grown up responsibilities have forced me to. Nonetheless, its true.

Take this skirt for example. I saw a similar one in navy and white at Forever 21 months ago and desperately wanted it. I even searched the whole store to find another one in my size. But alas, I left the store empty handed. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago. While shopping at the thrift store with my mother I ran across this skirt. Exactly like the one at Forever 21 but in Pink and white (and probably cheaper). The colors were different but it made me feel like I had a one of a kind piece. Thank you Salvation Army! So moral of the story, sometimes patience and delayed gratification are a good thing! Who knew?!?

Fashionably Yours~

Btw, its was so cold here yesterday, so I had to bust out a sweater! The weather can't decide if it wants to stay spring or not! Ugh..

  1. That is a cute skirt! It looks like it has a back slit? The color is a fresh take compared to the usual black and white that most striped things have.

    Weather has been crazy here too. Nice during the week and then rain all weekend. No fun

  2. I love this outfit! The lengths are so interesting and the colors are fantastic.
