This week my hairdryer stopped working after years of service, so a trip to Target was on the agenda. It wasn’t long after I began roaming the aisles of the superstore that I spotted this blue and black striped maxi skirt. At the moment of discovery two bloggers popped into my thoughts. Jean of Dross Into Gold HERE, who has featured a gorgeous black and white striped maxi and Jan of Fort Smith Stylista HERE who describes her Target shopping experiences in exquisite and delightful detail.
How could I resist? The influence of other bloggers in my orbit manifested itself in a purchase that inspired an outfit with royal blue as the feature. Another example of how blogging has expanded my world and opened the door to possibilities that I might not otherwise have explored. Not just in the area of style!
The Coronado Island bracelet makes its Denver debut, adding color to the graphic blue and black.
The back of the skirt, with its horizontal stripes, contrasts with the newly fallen snow on the veranda.
