Color Blocking: Mint & Cobalt

I found this cobalt skirt yesterday at the J.Crew outlet for $12.00! I was SO super excited, because I have been looking for a cobalt skirt for a while! Being on a Christian school teacher's budget, I can't buy all the things I want, (which is totally fine), so when God sends me items on my "want list" that are under $15, I can't help but squeal with excitement! I'm so blessed! I may never be able to buy a full-priced item from any store, but I would rather be in God's will, than have all the finest things here on earth! My husband preached a great sermon this morning in chapel about living your life for God and not vanities that will pass away when we die. I am so glad that I chose to live for God as a 15 year old girl, and I'm perfectly content with buying sale items, thrift store finds, and driving a used car for the rest of my life.
True joy comes from God, not materials! :)

Now, on to my outfit...Today's challenge is color blocking. I paired my cobalt skirt with a mint striped shirt and a mint cardigan. I also found this beautiful statement necklace at Rue 21 for $12.99! Rue 21 is definitely my new go-to store for jewelry, since I don't have a Forever 21 anymore!
