I don’t know about you but when I was growing up. It was called Pennys. And til this day, I will admit that sometimes I still shorten it to just Pennys. Perhaps it is a fitting name because may recent trip had me smiling. I was excited to find the cute looks I scored but more excited to pay so little for this cute ensemble.
Two weeks ago, I received a free $10 coupon from JCPenney and decided to go see what I could find. I picked up a few things and then I spotted this skirt. I walked around with it for a while and was torn. I liked it but it also had a lot going on. I didn’t know how it was going to look on my curves but decided to give it a shot.
It had a lot of things going for it. 1) It is on trend in a number of ways a) it is floral – one of the season’s must haves and b) it is a pencil skirt – a popular silhouette. 2) It was on clearance. You all know how I love a good bargain. It was marked down to $14.99 and with the $10 coupon, it was a huge score. So I tried it and I loved it. The color is so vibrant and festive. I figured I would pair it with a solid black shirt or white shirt. But when I went into another JCPenney a few days later and spotted the matching shirt for just $9.99, I couldn’t pass it up. Although I thought this was going to be a lot of flowers, I decided to be adventurous and let my floral flag fly. After all, one of the hottest looks for 2015 is the matching set.
