I have been sitting on my this blush/gray striped skirt for months and months now. I got it to replace a gray/black striped tube skirt that was terribly pilled, but somehow this one did not function the same way. Nothing I tried with it seemed to feel right.
I belatedly have realized that 1) I generally don't feel as great in a column of light color as I do in a column of dark color and 2) I like my light colors much better when there is some kind of dark print involved (e.g. the black stripe in the original gray tube skirt). Anyway, this black top with light/pale colors seemed to be just the thing. I will have to remember to keep an eye out for more contrasting prints so that I can wear them with either type of bottom.
In other news, the reason I was asking for good thoughts the other day is that DH and I had just put in an offer on a condo! The offer was accepted, the inspection is finished, and we're in escrow. Twice the size of our current place, in a really nice location, and our monthly expenses will be lowered. We are both on kind of high strung, half expecting something to still derail this, but we are allowing some excitement to creep in around the edges. Oh, and I would have two large closets and an extra shoe closet all to myself. :) Hopefully talking about this the night before a major holiday will reduce the possibility of a jinx, because I really needed to let all that out! *knocks on wood, throws salt over shoulder, and crosses self*
