Super Tuesday Supermom Savvy Outfit of the Day - $35 Kate Spade Serena

So, what does one wear on Super Tuesday? Red, white and blue? Too obvious. A shirt with my candidate's face? Uh, no. How about pink! 'Cause nothing screams politics like a hot pink eyelet jacket, right? Anyway!

Today's outfit is a little departure for me. Those who have known me for a long time know that I grew up a tomboy in a surf town in Southern California. Shorts and sweatshirts were my outfits of choice, usually by outfitters like Rip Curl, Op, Quicksilver, Billabong or O'Neill. I didn't really explore my feminine side until I became a sorority girl at Pepperdine University. Even then the change was slow.

I don't think I really embraced my feminine side until I had girls. That's when pink entered my wardrobe. This from the woman who asked that people DIDN'T buy pink for my first born daughter. I registered for every color BUT pink.

Anyway, on to the good stuff.

The Breakdown.
Jacket by Style & Company (Macy's sale $12/ARP $79), white tank top (Rave $4/ARP $4), Metro 7 jeans ($4 thrift store/ARP $29), Bandolino black leather pumps ($5 at thrift store, TJMaxx sticker still on bottom when I bought it/ARP $70) and a gorgeous Kate Spade purse ($10 thrift store/ARP $298).

Grand total: $35
Approximate Retail Price: $480
Savvy Savings: $445

Metro 7 jeans can be found at Walmart. Yes, Walmart. Shhhhh - don't tell anyone. I sure won't!
