I haven’t shopped at Express since I was in my twenties, and I don’t want to go into just how many years that’s been, but let’s just say it’s been Quite awhile. After months of reading Gina of On the Daily EXPRESS and seeing her great clothing from Express I decided to give them a try again. Especially after Gina made sure we all knew about the great 40 % off Labor Day sale. I felt like with that kind of sale, it was definitely time to check them out again.
This is one of the Portofino shirts I picked up on the quick trip I squeezed in. Bear in mind this was the weekend I was moving, so a dash in and out was all I could manage. However, during my brief run through I did see some of the cutest pieces. Particularly some gorgeous skirts (like this red midi) I am anxious to go back and give a whirl. Anyway, when I saw this particular Portofino, I fell in love with the mesh detailing along the front. To make it work appropriate I layered it over a nude cami, but am also looking forward to wearing it on a date night without the extra layer.
Wearing: Top – Express (for whatever reason, I couldn’t find this exact Portofino on the website) // Skirt – Worthington, JCPenney (Similar) // Shoes – Calvin Klein “Lyndsay” (Similar, Similar) // Necklace – NY&Co. (Similar)
I can’t remember exactly why I stopped shopping at Express along the way, but I am glad I gave them another chance and discovered a new shopping spot. Here’s to second chances – Happy Monday, y’all!
