This floral pencil skirt is so pretty however sizing runs big.  I have on 00p and have it clipped in the back.  It’s 100% cotton and fully lined so it’s possible to shrink it in the dryer.  I’ve done this countless times with other skirts and it does work but very risky.  You also have to keep in mind the lining underneath will not shrink so you’ll have to take up the hem.  It’s currently marked down plus an extra 40% off making it under $36 for a nice pencil skirt.  Not too shabby!

Skirt: Ann Taylor seersucker paper bag skirt (00p) | Top: Ann Taylor essential halter top sweater (navy, xxsp) | Shoes: Halogen navy bow pumps (old, similar HERE)

This seersucker paper bag skirt is just as I had hoped – amazing!  I mentioned in my previous post HERE and HERE.  The fit is way better than the floral pencil skirt. This also comes in a linen material but I like the seersucker way better plus it’s cotton.  Sizing runs true to size and 00p fits me almost perfectly.  It’s slightly loose but once I wash and dry it, it should fit nicely. I love the paper bag waist and self tie sash – pulls everything together.

Ann Taylor Sale Picks

I ordered this lace flutter top during the last sale so it should be on it’s way to me – can’t wait!

Now on to Loft!  I’ve been kind of bored and slightly confused with their stuff lately. Not sure if they have a new buyer for their merchandise? Plus the vanity sizing on top of the strange styles and prints – not looking too good but that’s just my opinion and I’m sure many would disagree.  This is coming from a huge Loft fan of many years!  However…I did see some decent new arrivals and with the 40% off + free shipping, I’m being slightly swayed (lol).  Sale ends Tuesday June 27th at 3 am EST so you have a litlte more time to shop.  Here are my picks:
