I woke up this morning to a whopping 1 inch of snow!!! Normally, this would not be a big deal. However, if you live in Portland, it is a HUGE deal! I left for work early thinking that traffic would be a nightmare, but it was quite the opposite. There were barely any cars on the road at all. I guess everyone decided to play it safe and just stay home. FedEx even got in on the excitement! Yesterday (that's when this gigantic storm was supposed to start), the FedEx driver that picks up/drops off at my office came in and said that they would not be able to do any pick-ups after 2:00pm. Why? Because the FedEx plane was leaving early from the airport in preparation for the "storm".
Coat: J. Crew
Top: J. Crew
Cardigan: J. Crew (Jackie:)
Necklace: Found at a local consignment shop (It may be a little too reminiscent of an Easter egg, but I like it anyways. Easter is actually coming up fairly soon, so I guess it's appropriate.)
I also have to tell you about a great deal I found today! I have been stalking the Pins and Needles Pleated Knee-length Skirt from UO ever since seeing it on Sara from You, Me & Anthropologie (here it is on her).
It's been in my cart for a while, but I have been hesitant to order, just because I have never ordered anything from UO, I didn't know if it would fit me, and I didn't want to pay the $10 shipping. Online, the skirt is currently $59.00. I was looking at it again this morning, and I almost went for it and checked out. Then I thought that maybe I should just go to the B&M (which is actually very close to my office) to see if they had any in stock so that I could try it on before buying it. So, that is what I did on my lunch break (parking was very easy, thanks to all of this snow we got:). I looked around, but didn't see the skirt. I asked one of the SA and she said that if they had any left, they would be in the sale section (Sale????). Low and behold there were a few left. I found my size, it fit nicely, and it was only $19.99!!!
