Check Mate!





Hello! Sorry I've not blogged in 2 weeks.  My photographer traveled and although I'd planned on blogging about some of my drug store beauty favorites, I was also swamped with work as this is back to school season so the clinic is busier but I love my job.  Thankful for a job I love.

Anyway about this outfit, I felt like I won twice hence the 'check mate' I guess that's what's said when playing chess and winning?! I don't know but I do know that purchasing this checker skirt on sale from Topshop for $8 was a win.  And after having this H&M peplum top in my closet for over 1 year and never worn, I found it to be a match for the skirt.  I think shopping your own closet sometimes can produce great finds.

Thanks so much for visiting! it's appreciated,
Yvonne
