This past weekend I took a quick trip up to Boston to spend time with my best friend and her new husband. They are coming up on their first year anniversary and I was so excited to see her in her new role as wife; she has it pretty much nailed down and I’m so proud of her. I remember when we would gush over our mutual love for Justin Timberlake — Oh how things have changed! Things are a little bit different now but we still make room for gush talk…there is always room to gush over JT. Three days in Boston wasn’t nearly enough to see all my friends and family I left behind when I moved to Florida but it was so nice to spend a few days in the city that I will always call home.
When packing for this trip I definitely wanted to make sure I packed something that was weather appropriate and chic but this can be sometimes difficult with New England weather being very temperamental. I ended up packing based on how I felt the morning of my flight which was a little fierce. So I tapped into my inner curvy rocker and voila — my outfit of the day — a fusion of toughness and sweetness. I love it! I scored this fabulous pleated leather mini skirt on sale at ASOS (say word). It was worth every penny and I definitely will be putting it to good use. I get so excited about investment pieces like this. These are items that are usually one of a kind and may cost a little more than what you bargained for but are purchased with the knowledge that it’s place in your closet has more worth; you know you will get a lot more wear out of it compared to how much you paid. It’s elementary my dear Watson. Let’s say a skirt or a blazer you really want costs $120. Divide 120 by the amount of times you plan on wearing that item in a year. So if you estimate about 10 times a year that skirt only costs you about $12 per wear. Totally worth it!
