The Skirt I Did Not Know I Needed Until I Found It

Do you ever get fixated on an item of clothing and think "if only I could find a grey sweater with bunny appliqu
és" for the fall, then I'd be set? In my case, the elusive item was a pair of camel colored wool trousers. I had a very specific image in mind and was convinced that if I could find them then all my wardrobe problems would be solved.

Of course as soon as I decided that was what I needed, the fashion industry conspired to stop making (affordable) camel colored wool trousers. J. Crew came close but the price tag and the fact it was not in my beloved "city fit" gave me pause.

I was so despondent about my lack of the right pants, I did what anyone would do and went to Target for a pick me up. And there I saw this skirt and I realized that I did not need camel colored wool trousers (well maybe I do but they can wait) but I did need this camel colored knit skirt. Just like finding the right partner in life - you never know what you need until you find it. (Yes I just compared finding one's soul mate to buying a cheap skirt at Target.)
