i have some discouraging news.
as i shared yesterday, today is the day my backordered double serge pencil skirt from j.crew arrived. i have been waiting for this for over a month and included it in my 30x30 because i knew it would be perfect to mix and match. i loved that mustard yellow color.
i even picked tops because i knew they work well with a mustard color. i know it was a risk to include it prior to seeing it, but i figured it wouldn't be that off from the photo.
boy was i wrong. i excitedly opened that familiar brown j.crew envelope and found this color:
hmph. this is not what i expected, to say the least. though i think the color would be great for someone (kind of a burnt yellow green brown?). it is not appealing to me. at all. and it doesn't really go with anything i was planning to pair. so sad. i couldn't drive fast enough to j.crew to return it.
but that brings me to my dilemma...
what item do i replace it with? uggggh. i did not want to have to replace any items. i loved all the outfits that utilized this piece! clearly, i can't purchase a skirt for the challenge (or anything else for that matter), but i will look through my closet for a replacement piece and update my mini-editor with the new piece. since i haven't even worn all my 30x30 options, i feel like it's okay. right? i have no other choice, unless i did the 30x29, which doesn't quite have the same ring to it.
oh and while i was at j.crew i looked around for the citron skirt that was on my wishlist. i hate to say this... but it was another dissapointment in color. it was not a light, bright, lemony yellow green. it was neon chartreuse. at least now i can cross it off my wishlist. :)
until next time,
