Daily Outfit - Kate - 8/19/10

YAY MOM!



I'd have never been daring enough to pick it up on my own, but when when it's given to me? HECK YES!

My mom has always had great taste in clothes for me, actually. Even when I was in the ennui-soaked throes of teenagerdom, I'd often defer to her suggestions. I remember one time in particular when I was about 16, Mom went to Chicago and visited Forever 21 and H&M (this was before they had those in KC) and bought me back such wonderment as I'd never seen before - frilly skirts, a little pink tank top that I *still* wear, and the cutest jacket! How many teenagers are so lucky (and moreover, how many teenagers *realize* it?)?

So what I'm getting at is, Mom's taste has come through for me again. This may be my new favorite top.



It's frilly and flowy and comfy and airy and comfy and sexy.



I love how it looks with this thrifted belt. And, probably, with all my other belts :-D



Top: Wal-Mart. $3. Clearance. (I KNOW!!!!)
Belt: thrifted in Sarasota
Jeanskirt: Old Navy
Earrings: mom
Bracelet: booth at Red Barn, circa 2007
Shoes: heckifiknow

I love this top! I might need to take a trip to Walmart... no worries, I would totally credit you on my find :D

I have that shirt! In the same color! It was a birthday gift from my co-worker and I've kind of been at a complete loss as to how to style it. I never would have thought to wear it over a skirt and belt it. That's so simple but genius!

Thanks for the inspiration!

The George line at Walmart has some real winners. And like your mom, I like to pick mine up for $3. :)

The quality isn't that bad either.
