I really needed to blow off steam after a frustrating day at work so I tried good ol’ retail therapy. Shopping does wonders for the soul. The sale selection at my local Ann Taylor is often mediocre at best so I wasn’t expecting much. The only 00P skirt available was this Lightweight Donegal Knit Skirt, on sale for $49.99 from $98.00. Frankly, it didn’t really look that great on the hanger but I figured I haven’t had much luck finding work skirts and it looked small enough on the hanger that I took a gamble. When I got home and tried it on…I was more than pleased. It fit quite well and is so comfortable.

It’s a pretty stretchy material so I think it can accommodate someone a size bigger than me. I have included the tag in case you are interested in purchasing it. It’s no longer available in small sizes for petites online but I bet client services can help you track one down. Vicky has mentioned that if you order a full price item they can waive the shipping charge on the entire order. If you only purchase sale items the shipping charge is $7.50.

I also stopped by Ann Taylor LOFT and picked up the Habutai Flutter Sleeve Tee in a dove gray color (top left picture)…the regular XS is way too big on me. I know I should’ve tried it on but I was not feeling the fitting room. I also went to H&M and found a really amazing deal which I will write about at a later time.
