Daily MelWear: BBCA Day 8

I almost didn't get to blog today. Blogging Fridays - Sundays is harder for me because I'm not at work so my routine is different.  Not to mention that this morning, we had something to take care of that weighed heavily on my mind. Now that part is over. We have a few more hurdles in the next few weeks before our new normal begins.

Whew. Anyway. 

This skirt is a tad bit too snug, so I can't wear it to work because it ends up being too high on my waist and therefore too short. I love it though.  Hopefully I can lose a few pounds so it fits better! {NOTE: I'm typing this while shoveling a chocolate chip cookie into my mouth.}

I was going to to pair it with a purple tee but then decided to pull out the yellow instead. Black cardigan and belt - voila! I threw in some more pink with the necklace and earrings. I like it. 

Hope you're all having a great Friday.  I'm off to run some errands and probably won't get to do my Friend Friday post this week. I feel so out of touch lately! 

Today's outfit:
Floral Skirt: Plato's Closet
Yellow Tank: Plato's Closet
Black Cardigan: Ross
Black Belt: Kohl's (came with a different shirt)
Black Flats: Target
Pink Necklace/Earrings: Beya


  1. I hope your cookie was excellent, because now you have me seriously hankering for chocolate. Dag nab it. It's very you to throw a little yellow in. I'm glad you did because it looks awesome. I can't tell that skirt is snug at all. And I would heart to see a collection of your necklaces. You know, so I can copy. :)

  2. I also like the yellow!! You look so cute!!

    Can you have another cookie...for me? ;)

  3. All your outfits rock! You've done a great job and congrats on your weight loss!

  4. heee! Your posts always make me smile! Have a great weekend, great outfit :)

  5. Oh maybe I should get a cookie? I am feeling so tired! Such a long day, I taught a class at lunch and now, I have all these briefs to do!

    Did I mention I got you TWO?

  6. Hang in there - I know you're going through some heavy stuff right now, but I'm pulling for you and I hope it all works out (and quickly).

    But the print of that skirt is just fantastic! I love it with the yellow tank and black cardi.

  7. Wow, the pink/yellow/black is a great combination!

  8. Hang in there. A little chocolate can give a big lift. ♥ I love the pink skirt and yellow top. You're doing so well with this challenge.

  9. The print of that skirt is awesome, and I love the yellow top with it! Its a shame you can't wear that skirt to work. Good luck with errands and returning to a hopefully great normal! :)

  10. I love your outfit. You sure love Plato's Closet. I have one got one thing from there but I have sold tons of stuff.

  11. The yellow was an awesome choice! I love how bright the whole outfit is...just puts a smile on my face. :)

  12. Love the yellow with the pink! Hope you're having a great weekend!

  13. Beautiful! I like the pink, purple and yellow. The colors are so cheery and work well with the pink theme.

    I have that happen with skirts too, unfortunately. When I'm heavier, the skirts fit but ride up higher on my natural waist. And then some skirts don't look good when I lose weight because they come down too far and start to look baggy or frumpy.

  14. I think going with the yellow was the perfect choice for this outfit. It really brings out the beautiful colors in this skirt. Chocolate chips cookies -- yum! I made some oatmeal chocolate chip cookles last night... ate two of them right out of the oven (had to make sure they turned out okay)...and that was after eating a least three cookies' worth of unbaked dough (the best part!). But it's okay because I had sushi for dinner....right? Hope you're enjoying the weekend!

  15. Hugs girl! I hope your weekend is going good! Jumping in with your blogging for breast cancer awearness. First outfit is at the link below.


  16. One of my fave outfits on you, Melissa. You look fabulous, and the touch of yellow is great!
