shades of tan

Last weekend I went shopping at Loft to try to snag some labor day weekend deals. My store NEVER has 00P, but I ended up with two skirts in that size (that I would have rather paid less for) and I also got a cute pair of gold sandals for only ~$5. Both of the skirts I got were animal print, and I was contemplating returning one of them. When I got home I couldn't decide which to keep because I think they are both so different. The one I wore in this outfit post I see as more casual, with its clearer print design and lighter, more summery colors. The other skirt is more subdued - it is in a dark brown and the print is much less noticeably animal than this one. I decided to keep them both, because although I know I could have scored them at a cheaper price (that is, if my size was still in stock weeks down the road, which it won't be) I would still pay $30 for a skirt of the same caliber, so I can't whine too much.
Skirt: Loft
Tee: TJ Maxx
Sweater: Loft
Shoes: Nine West
Necklace: Forever 21
Belt: Ann Taylor Factory
Bracelets: Movado, Fossil, John Hardy
Although I'm not super proud of this outfit, and realize I stuck to pretty neutral colors, I wanted to post it anyway because if you like this skirt it is likely on pretty decent sale at your local Loft now! I picked up mine for a decent ~15 and it might be even cheaper at a store near you.
