Savvy Supermom Outfit of the Day - $13 Lucky 13

Ahhhh, jeans! I figured it was the weekend and well, if you can't wear jeans on the weekend, by golly, when can you wear them?!

This was a bit of an experiment. I'm not sure what color this BCBG sweater is, salmon? It's kind of a orangish-pink or maybe pinkish-orange, but I was kind of excited that it matched a shawl that I had recently found at the thrift store for $1.50. To kick it up a notch, I added a bright yellow patent leather purse and there was just enough color to keep this from fading into just another "jeans & sweater" outfit.

The Breakdown.
BCBG sweater ($3 thrift store/ARP $50), white tank ($3 For Love 21/ARP $3), Mavi jeans (FREE from a neighbor/ARP $80), lovely shawl ($1.50 thrift store/ARP $40), Andrew Stevens blue suede ankle boots ($6 thrift store/ARP $80)

Grand Total: $13.50
Approximate Retail Price: $218.50
Savvy Savings: $205

I am SO loving the yellow purse! Patent leather is a favorite of mine because it's so low maintenance, and with the onset of fall/winter, it's nice to have a purse that can withstand the elements without fear of waters spots. And well, the yellow is so happy. Can't wait to wear it with the yellow patent leather Bandolino wedge sandals I found last week for $4 - of course that will probably have to wait till Spring.

Stay Savvy Y'all!
