Savvy Supermom Outfit of the Day $36 - Michael Kors Cool
Today's outfit comes to you from the thrift store and Parisians. Since it's getting cooler around here layering is the perfect way to stay warm outside and cool inside. I've been experimenting with different color combinations lately and found that I am using these maroon color cords much more than I thought I would.
Limited Jeans jacket ($5 thrift store/ARP $50), Old Navy white cotton gauze hoody ($4 thrift store/ARP $24), white tank top ($4 Rave/ARP $4), maroon American Eagle cords ($5 thrift store/ARP $40), multicolor scarf (FREE clothes exchange at Plato's Closet/ARP $15), Ann Marino black leather wedge ($8 Parisian's end of season sale/ARP $70), Michael Kors Hutton black leather hobo ($10 thrift store/ARP $328).
Grand total: $36
Approximate Retail Price: $531
Savvy Savings: $495
A word about cords. To me, cords are like jeans. They comes in a variety of colors, and they are great wash and wear items. Khakis may be great for some people, but unless they have a touch of stretch in them to keep them from wrinkling I won't wear them because I am NOT an iron-er. My husband was in the military for a short stint and is definitely the better iron-er in the family. Truth is I don't particularly like to iron and can think of oh, about one million things I'd rather do than iron.
