Dark Coral and Teal

Sometimes Pinterest doesn't give me a full outfit Pinsperation.  Sometimes, it is just a color combination that I wouldn't have thought of on my own, or been too afraid to try.  The color pallet below just made me happy.  I have learned to embrace color, and wear color fairly recently.  It just puts me in a good mood, and there isn't much wrong with that.

Here's the link to the Polyvore set.  The top is $200 and the white pants are $155. 
I can't make this stuff up, folks.

 Below is my Pinsperation Combination.  Say that 20 times fast.

The color shows up a little darker on film than in person, but I think you can get the idea.  It is a coral tank with darker teal cardigan, and white pants.  Let's dive in!

The tank top and cardigan are both from Target.  The cardigan was a 70% off clearance item for $5 and some change.  You can't go wrong with cardigan's in fun colors, they will brighten up anything from your little black dress to a white tank and jeans.  The tank is another one of those great Mossimo layering tanks that I got on sale.  This one is from the end of a season last year so it was only $3.50.

The white pants were another Goodwill steal.  Go in there alone and with time to spend.  I know this is hard if you are a busy mom, especially one who works full-time or is single, but it is worth it to have the time and patience to look through every aisle.  These pants were only $4.  White pants with toddler boys?  I wouldn't want to spend more than that!

The shoes were even a bigger bargain.  They were free!!  I have a friend that got them as a sample and passed them onto me because I was the sample size.  Love that!  Come to think of it, let your friends know you would love to take a peek at any clothes they are donating to see if you can give them a second life...and offer the same.  Or set up an actual clothing swap!

Finally, the purse was the second half of the two for one sale at that I mentioned in my first post.  I sign up for sooo many deal sites, but really only ever buy from them rarely when there truly is an amazing special.  This was one of them because my purse rocks, and was only $20.

That is right, this outfit, minus the jewelry was $32.50.  High five!

No outfit is complete without the jewelry, so here is what
I've pulled together from my lia sophia samples of past and present. 

(This is one of my pricier pieces, luckily hostesses can get it for $40!)

One of my favorite rings of seasons past, no longer available for purchase : (
