Today's prompt was to rock a menswear inspired look. I chose a V-neck tee, dress pants, and a blazer. I considered wearing a button-up, but it's just too hot around here! I figured the blazer was removable in case I start to die of a heat stroke.
blazer- Old Navy
pants- the Limited
I have a confession to make... I bought this t-shirt on Saturday. Does that break my challenge? I mean, it's just a tee...
I've seen a lot of people with these boyfriend tees from Target lately. And I've heard a lot about them. Linley raves about them on her blog, Dwelling & Telling. They're usually sold out of them at my Target. But I found this hunter green in my size. They are regularly $8. But there was a Target coupon, to print from their website, for $3 off any Missimo item. So I got it for $5. It's really soft and very comfortable. I have a million different fitted t-shirts. But I like them long, like this one. And it's hard to find them in a longer length sometimes.
I said in the original post that it would only be clothing (not accessories) since that's what i have an abundance of. So for the entire month all I have bought myself is a t-shirt for $5. Husband bought me this striped top with cut-out shoulders for $7. I also bought a pair of $7 faux snakeskin pumps from Target and a leather carry-all pouch from American Apparel for $50. I think I did pretty good. The only time I slipped up was for a t-shirt for 30 days! This is coming from someone who went to Loft at least once a week on her lunch break to shop in the past few months. But now my wish list on Pinterest is quickly growing. So I can't wait to shop again!!!!
