With temperatures back up above zero, I’m happily taking my photos outside again! In addition to my outdoor joy, I bring to you today, readers, the penny skirt. Yes, the skirt I somehow managed to get at Nordstrom Rack for a penny. Apparently when items are marked down to be taken out of the store and donated, they are marked down to a penny and cleared from the floor. However, occasionally a penny item accidentally remains on the floor. Since it had a tag on it, the store was still obligated to sell it. I never knew any of this! Oh, the things we learn! So, this skirt will henceforth be known as “the penny skirt.” A pretty penny indeed…and a penny for your thoughts on this Monday. I hope it was a warm and cozy one.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I love that you can now shop Nordstrom Rack online. If you’re interested in other variations of this skirt, it is still available online via this link: https://www.nordstromrack.com/brands/Bobeau (and for $14!). They also have their “even more reduced items” via their clearance section online at: https://www.nordstromrack.com/clearance/Women/Clothing. Don’t forget to look into their debit card point system; it’s well worth signing up and you can do so without opening a credit card!
2) I last featured this breezy “summer” top on the blog (below) in spring. With a cardigan, a skirt, tights, and layers, this top easily becomes an all-season top. For silky, sheer, year round tops, I really like Banana Republic, Express, and J Crew. I think the prices tend to be best at Banana Republic when they have a sale on their sale items, and the quality is top notch. Then, keep out your silky and sheer tops year round!
Anyone else know about the penny items?? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! I appreciate it so much! I hope everyone had a great Monday!
