Savvy Supermom Outfit of the Day - $40 Lucky Brand Core Colors

We're having odd weather here in Music City. With the current weather pattern we are experiencing bouts of down pours, a bit of humidity and heat with cool breezes thrown in now and again. There are puddles everywhere, and so I pulled the boots out. Though my kids may like the squishing of feet in sandals or crocs, I can't say that I do.

Not quite Fall and still not out of summer, today's outfit was a combination of both seasons - boots and t-shirt!

The Breakdown.

True to Your CORE t-shirt ($4 thrift store/ARP $50), United Colors of Benetton denim skirt ($4 thrift store/ARP $75), Nine West kitten heel boots ($8 thrift store/ARP $150), Lucky Brand purse ($24 thrift store/ARP $200).

Grand Total: $40
Approximate Retail Price: $375
Savvy Savings: $335

A brown purse with a black skirt and jeans? YES! Matching your shoes to your purse is a myth that needs dispelling. It's about what works and in this case, a black purse would have just faded into the background. Using a brown purse adds a little interest to the outfit and well, all my "stuff" was still the purse from the day before so I just left it there...

Stay Savvy Y'all!
