I’m leaving on a jet plane (or airplane skirt)

Have you ever had an item that you didn’t buy, for whatever reason, and it has haunted you for the rest of your life? Ok, it’s a little exaggerated, but I still am super disappointed that I did not add the Wright Dress to my closet years ago.  I actually have a Google Alert on for it, so it may one day the seersucker airplane dress will be mine! Until then, this skirt is holding it’s place in my closet….just kidding. Seriously, I love this skirt! This skirt is extremely comfortable, adorable and I love being able to spin around in it….I paired it with a navy and white stripped tee that I picked up on super-sale at Anthropologie last year. And one of my favorite and most comfortable parts of this outfit are my Tieks. I am obsessed with Tieks – they are extremely comfortable and are easy to pack because they fold in half. I will say they are some of the most expensive shoes I have ever owned, but are perfect for all of my time on the road.

I wore this outfit this past weekend to a NARS event at Saks Fifth Ave where we learned about some of the newest products and was able to meet a global makeup artist that has worked with some great celebrities. Because I was going to be walking all over the Galleria afterwards, I wanted to be comfortable and cute! This outfit met all of the criteria! Otherwise, my weekend was pretty quiet and relaxing – just what I needed. I am heading out to my friend’s wedding this week and it was nice to be able to get a few things done this weekend to prepare!

Have you ever experienced regrets over not buying something? I would love to hear about it in the comments!

P.S. On a more serious note, my thoughts and prayers go out to all of the people affected by the earthquake in Nepal. As much as I joke about my fashion regrets, this earthquake is a catastrophic reminder of how lucky I am to be able to love fashion and share it with you all here.

    It’s not so much a fashion regret, but there’s a dress out there that I want SO badly. It’s from ASOS and is black and has pineapple all over it. Adorable, right? I need it but it’s sold out everywhere!
