J.Crew Double Serge Wool Skirt ($130 + 25%-off with code SHOPFALL) 

I try not to repeat items on the blog, but this skirt–first seen in the weekly favorites–is in my head.  It’s gorgeous green color.  It’s perfect for fall weight.  It’s “I go with everything swag.”  I.can’t.stop.thinking.about.it.

If you’re looking for a similar shade for less, Nordstrom has a Halogen skirt just like it for $69.  Should another fall hue be more to your liking, this Ann Taylor ponte pencil comes in teal, sapphire and burgundy (also comes in petite and tall).  Topshop has a bright pumpkin skirt.  But my favorite is this eggplant-colored Coldwater Creek skirt that comes in misses and plus-size.

    Could you do a two way for this skirt? I have the Halogen one and absolutely love it!

    • Diana says:

      I second that. I have and love the Halogen in this color. It is a totally ‘new’ color to my closet so I am looking coordinating color advice! Love the eggplant color too so maybe a two way with that color soon.
      Thank you.

      Yes! Two ways! And perhaps with suggestions for other fall jewel tone skirts? I just picked up the wine colored Halogen one…

    • s says:

      yes! would love style ideas on this 🙂 i’m obsessed with it!

    Does anyone know if the Halogen skirt has a matching jacket?

  3. Jennifer says:

    FYI the skirt is $98 in J.Crew stores and also 25% off on top of that.

Too Many Tabs: April 19, 2024

This week, I fell mindlessly into my phone more than I think I ever have. My screen time went from 3.5 hours per day to 5 hours per day. But the increased eye strain did lead to some good finds. Just going to leave this right here.  (I really need to work on “Didn’t make […]

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
