Grey skies coming at you

I got this skirt a few weeks ago while shopping at Target with Hubby. I couldnt decide which color I liked best and since hubby was buying I had to choose one, LOL. If it was MY money, I would have gotten all the colors. I saw that BBM has the same skirt (different color) in this post. I was thinking, aawwwwll, we think alike, lol~ But this skirt is perfect and very very comfortable. I will surely be able to wear it all summer... Does anyone else have this skirt? I would love to see how you styled it.. send me pics.. and I will do a recap!

I need a few more tops to compliment this skirt. I am really thinking about buying some tank tops and trying to embellish them with flowers and ribbon which is all the rage now in TheGap, Banana Republic, and even eShakti. I want one bad! has anyone seen a DIY project for those shirts. It seems easy enough and I think it would be perfect with this skirt and more like it.

I really like that skirt. I haven't gone to Target in over a month, but my shopping ban is almost over and I'll go soon.maybe they'll be in the clearance rack by then.

Madeline at Uber Chic for Cheap did a really great embellished tee not too long ago:

The skirt is beautiful. I'm a sucker for grey clothing! Those DIY tops are super cute and easy to do. I remember getting really into them when I was in Jr. High. Seventeen mag. did a feature on them and my best friend and I were all over that! haha! Look at Anthropologie too. They had some pretty ones for inspiration as well!
