Daily Style...

Top: J.Crew (20.00? really old)
Skirt: Target (16.00)
Belt: Thrift (1.00)
Tights: TjMaxx (4.99)
Shoes: Target (6.99 sale)
Bracelet: Gift
Picture Taker: Chris
I look exhausted here, to tell you the truth I haven't been feeling that great for the past couple of days, and it's taken a lot of effort to do even the most mundane things- all I want to do is curl up on the couch. This outfit is perfect for the kind of day where I just want to be comfortable but have to work (like today): the skirt has an elastic waist and this cotton shirt is one of my favorites. I'll probably wear this again this weekend for my work-trip to Philadelphia for National Portfolio Day. Wow, I'm really struggling with things to say here, maybe that's the downside of blogging in the morning? In any case, happy Tuesday!

myedit said...

I think striped tops should be on everyone's must-have list after a denim jacket, a LBD and vodka. I joke...
But I love this!
