Post Winter Pre Spring

J Crew Black Tights, Forever 21 Sweater, Elephant Skirt (from India), Famous Footwear Flats

This is the outfit I wore to school today. It's about 50 degrees outside-- my favorite weather because it is the perfect temperature to wear a skirt with tights. I got these tights on sale from J Crew during Christmas (for 3 dollars!) and I also got a sparkly pair. However, the pair I wore today disappointed me because I found a run in them after only wearing them once before. -_- You get what you pay for, right?

The skirt has a much more interesting story. On a trip to India a couple of years ago, my mom bought this skirt for my sister. She never wore it, but I recently found it in the depths of her closet and fell in love with it. It's a wrap around skirt, but the buttons are too big for my waist so I usually wrap it around tightly and fold over the top of the skirt 1/2 an inch. They are hard to come by, but I recommend wrap around skirts for any and all petite girls. They are the adult version of the adjust your own waistline pants they used to sell at The Children's Place! (please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers those)

The sweater is from Forever 21 from forever ago (heh). Forever 21 is one of my favorite stores for cheap preppy clothing. Although this is an old sweater of my sister's (closet foraging— another lucrative method of finding cheap clothing) and was worn all throughout her high school career and the majority of mine, it show no signs of age.
Forever 21 Coat
This coat is one of my favorite purchases of 2013, because I bought it after it had been marked off several times and bought it for a final price of four dollars. I achieved this extreme coupon-er type success by finally following a piece of advice that my mother has been repeating for my entire life: buy coats at the end of the season. I bought this particular coat in February, and there were several other coats marked down as well. Unfortunately, none of them fit me very well. The sleeves on this coat are slightly long (as you can tell by the bunching), it doesn't have pockets (quite disconcerting) and its made from a thick cotton material, but overall, it serves the purpose of a winter/spring transitional coat. 

Also, sorry for the bad photo quality, my camera is dead so I took these pictures on my phone!

I'd love to know what you think of this outfit! Hopefully it sparks your interest enough to visit again and see my other outfits!
