Conversation #100: Should this be big? (& 21 Day Challenge - skirt or dress)

Well, I hate to disappoint, but I have nothing special planned for the 100th conversation.  It really doesn't correspond with anything because I did start the numbers when I re-started blogging, and it doesn't correspond with a number of days either.  Sorry I'm lame, but I'll try to work on that.  I always think of things I want to blog about, but then I forget.  I'm trying to put them in my phone so I can remember them at a later time.  I did go to our new H&M last night for the first time, and that was kind of cool.  I restrained myself and only bought a couple of small things, but I know I'll be back.  Does H&M have sales? 

Without further ado, I got behind on my challenge posting so you get two today!  Today's challenge was to wear a dress or skirt.  This really isn't hard for me.  I love dresses and skirts, and I have pretty much only worn that to work this summer because of the blasted heat.  However, today I had to go a little more formal and conservative because I had a meeting with an assistant city manager.  I figured today wasn't the day to push the fashion envelope.
Outfit Breakdown
Shirt: Banana Republic Outlet, $? bought it a couple of years ago
Skirt: Talbots, $30 (on sale and good for Talbots)
Shoes: Target, $12 on clearance (they are actually a wedge and super comfy)
Necklace: American Eagle Outfitters, $4
Glasses: Joseph Marc, $12 (tax and s&h); these are matte black and the others are tortoise

I really like the color of this top, and I could have probably been a bit more creative with the accessories.  However, I was running late and even forgot to put my watch on (which I never do unless pressed for time).  Any of you readers out there also participating in this challenge?  Let me know if you are!
