I wore this outfit on Monday, and I must admit, I felt rather smart in it.
Jacket: Nordstrom Rack
Shoes: NickelsSoft, thrifted
Necklace: Laila Rowe
I love the idea of mixing high-end and low-end pieces in one outfit.
I don't recall the brand of this jacket offhand, but I bought it at Nordstrom Rack, and it is definitely something I couldn't have afforded if I would have had to pay full price for it. Likewise, this Tiffany bracelet was a gift from my parents for my 30th birthday. (Every girl needs a little piece of Tiffany, dontcha think?)
However, the pants were purchased at discount retailer Marshall's, the shoes were thrifted, and the top was free via a clothing swap.
This is of of those outfits that proves that you don't have to pay an arm and a leg to feel like a million bucks.
