The perfect match

I ran into TJMaxx the other day to pick up a couple things I needed from the housewares section (they have the prettiest bottles of dish soap) and I wouldn't say that I deliberately went 20 minutes before closing so that I wouldn't be tempted to shop in any other departments, but if I had, I would have failed.

No sooner did I walk through the door than did I see this white eyelet lace skirt. No other ones like it around, not even with the other skirts, like it was sitting there just waiting for me. Same brand as the top I wore in Tuesday's post, a perfect match. For $30, how could I leave without it? And that lemon verbena dish soap - amazing.

  1. What can I say.... meant to be ?
    Sometimes I wish those shopping fairies would go and help someone else...

  2. This skirt is too lovely and it really does sound like it was just sitting there, waiting for you to come to the store to rescue it. I rarely think of pairing red with white but the match works so well in this outfit - it's slightly nautical but still totally elegant and wonderfully summery. I do wish we had TJ Maxx here in Canada, I always have great luck there just like you seem to, and Winners, which is our equivalent, is really not the same kind of treasure trove of beautiful bargains.

  3. Such a cute outfit! Loving that pretty white skirt!

  4. It's a really pretty skirt (and I love it paired with the stripes).

  5. So cute! I love it with the red stripes!
    And mmm, lemon verbena! One of my favorites

  6. Meh, we've all been guilty of that! And I think it was fate, personally. What a pretty skirt and it goes perfectly with that striped top (of which I am wearing an exact replica in real life today). Great sandals, too, of course!

  7. Oooh girl- LOVE that skirt! What a great find!

  8. No one could have resisted that skirt. It is amazing and looks incredible on you! Definitely meant to be!

  9. It was meant to be! That skirt is so pretty and it is so timeless with the red striped top. At least you still came out of there with dish soap :)

  10. What a steal! Your TJX sounds like it's way better than mine. And yes, lemon verbena hand soap is the absolute best.

  11. I adore red stripes, so I love this so much.


  12. Perfect match indeed! Love the striped top and the eyelet skirt provides the right amount of feminine detail to the outfit.

  13. What a beautiful skirt that was obviously meant to be. ;-) I love it with this striped top!

  14. Ha, no self-control in TJ Maxx, I totally get it! Love the skirt and how you styled it.

  15. It's a great skirt and I think it was just meant to be in your closet!
