So I’m seeing average temperatures in the 20s lately. It is what it is. I live in the midwest.

My favorite clothing stores are cruelly rolling out their spring lines, regardless of locale. I tried not to look, and was successful for a while, but they’re also snail-mailing and emailing me with promos. Today, I caved and took a look at Express. I’ve already fallen in love with one particular item.

Do want!

Do want!

This is a cotton high-waist pencil skirt that retails for $59.95. I’m a big pencil skirt fan and have several; including 2 from Express. I like that these appear to be light-weight cotton and come in oh-so-fun colors! My current pencil skirts are black or gray; which are staples of my wardrobe. My friends always make fun of me for all the black/white in my wardrobe. I’ve made an effort to branch out and have added quite a few color pieces to my closet in the past 6 months. They’d be proud!

Looking ahead to spring, I am definitely drawn to bright colors such as green, blue, pink, and yellow. For this particular skirt, I want green first, and then the pink, as shown in the picture above. Express hasn’t sent me any coupon codes lately, but I know where to find them online ;). This time next month I may have my beloved skirt!

ETA: I got it!
