Coral and Gray with Turquoise Accents
This look is cozy and a perfect example of how you can still be comfortable and put-together.
Find it here on Polyvore. It is $366 minus the Starbucks and the jewelry.
The jeans and t-shirt are actually great bargains!
Here's my version. I substituted the natural flats and purse for gold because that's what I have!
The coral cardigan is from the clearance section of a Banana Republic Factory store. I found it for only $6 about two years ago, and I wear it all the time! One of the things I haven't touched on yet is how picky I am about fabric. I can't stands things that make me itch at all, so I have just learned over time that I need to stick with cotton. So, not only do I have the challenge of buying things that are great deals, but my cardigans and sweaters are all 100% cotton or cotton with some spandex.
The gray tank top is by Mossimo at target on sale for $7. I also layer with sleeveless tops more than anything because I don't like sleeves bunching up. Picky, picky!
The jeans are a Goodwill find for $5. I just rolled them up a couple times to make them capris for this look.
The purse was a Kohl's clearance find. It was $18 and is an easy bag to grab whenever I'm wearing gold jewelry because it will always match!
The shoes were on sale for $30 at 6pm.com. They are also gold and super comfortable, but still dressy!
$66 for my look, means $300 to spend on other things...like a car payment : )
Of course, I have the jewelry on hand in my lia sophia collection. Love the turquoise with gold and how it pops against the coral sweater.
