Outfit Details:

tee - Jacob, skirt - Old Navy, cardigan - J.Crew, tights - Hue, shoes - Anne Klein

Much of my wardrobe basics consist of tees. Although I seem to have a plethora of them (scoop, vneck, ruffled, plain, fitted, drapey) in all sorts of colours, I never came across an allover print tee that I loved.

Last week, I found this super cute bird tee and I fell in love. The print is adorable, yet not at all juvenile. And because the print is small and the colours are neutral, I'll be able to mix this with a lot of my wardrobe. I don't love my outfit without the cardigan... I look like rectangle. Bleh! But I included the cardi-less picture to show you what the print looks like.

This skirt is part of my bargain haul from Old Navy's clearance sale last week. I picked it up for a mere $3.81! Seriously, I pay more for my coffee.

Finally, the shoes. Aren't they adorable? Maya picked out these shoes for me while we were doing our Christmas shopping in December, and proves that good taste is genetic! I let her "buy" them for my as her Christmas present to Mommy.

I picked up the same skirt from Old Navy last week but in black and brown. You have good taste. :P

Love the shoes. Things like being able to buy a skirt at Old Navy for less than one spends on coffee makes me think that my spend-free challenge is silly. Particularly, when I was feeling like stopping by Caribou this a.m. But, I will stay strong!

Great look! I also have the skirt in the black/tan combo...mine was $13 (which I was happy about at the time haha), so I envy your price! Sad I missed the big ON sale.
