I fell in love with this bright, cheery color combination...found here on Polyvore. However, I already have a purple pea coat, and just don't feel like I could make enough outfits with such bold heels, so I dug through my own goodies and put together an outfit using the color pallet (and even hematite jewelry).
Here's what I managed to find. Alexander (my 5 year old) thinks my citron cardigan is funny because he says it is "too small". I actually plan on wearing this look tomorrow with black pants instead of jeans. Let's break it down. The citron cardigan is an Old Navy clearance rack find. Actually, is was a surprise find. Our local Old Navy was running a special where when you could buy a mystery bag for $20 and it would have 5 pieces of clothing in it in your size. It was "gambling" for crazy shoppers like myself and I couldn't resist. So this sweater was $4! The tank top is from the clearance rack at TJ Maxx for $5. It is just like my favorite long and lean tank tops from Target, and is by Cynthia Rowley. The jeans are also from Target, bought at full price for $23. They fit like a dream, and people are surprised to find out they are Mossimo. The black patent heels are from the Target clearance rack for $13.
That's $45 for the entire outfit from cardigan to pumps!
The necklace is retired from the current lia sophia collection, but I see some gorgeous similar pieces in our new catalog launching in February!
Damask Earrings (so light, it's like not wearing anything!)
