Cheap Thrill! A Sweet Plaid Skirt, Minus The Prep School Price Tag

While we absolutely adore this season's navy schoolgirl-esque skirt from Wren, it's a little out of our reach considering we have completely out-eaten, out-partied and out-shopped our summer budgets. Purveyors of all things preppy, American Eagle Outfitters has a remedy to our skirt situation that won't break the bank. At just $19.95, this cute pocketed version will last you the rest of the month paired with a cute tee or tank. And with layering-appropriate days on the horizon, we say bring on the tights and boots weather already!
