I've been wanting a yellow skirt to wear with my chambray shirt ever since I saw these outfits:


via This Time Tomorrow (L) and Street Style Aesthetic (R)

I found the skirt at Forever 21 when they were having a BOGO sale over Labor Day weekend. I was also able to snag a black pencil skirt for when I want to feel more mature than I am. The debut of the yellow skirt today may have been its first and last while I'm pregnant. I wore it to work and had to unzip it ALL THE WAY at my desk after lunch. It was even more embarrassing when my boss came by with said skirt exposed. So, yellow skirt, we'll meet again someday. If not, you'll make a pretty rag..
