Summer is just around the corner and on some days the outdoor temps have finally gone above 70! Wasn’t it nice to finally ditch the stockings, wear a lighter jacket, maybe wear something new? Yes, yes, yes! On this particular day I headed out to work in a classic ‘Ginger-inspired’ elegant look, yet most of the pieces were bargains……the white cotton Theory blazer I found months ago at TJMaxx…..the blush blouse, black pencil skirt, and two tone pumps – all on sale at Ann Taylor…..the kind of sale when they tell you the total and you can’t believe it’s so low! The Prada bag – that was a treasure from Revolve you may remember I found back in October……Ok, so these highly versatile wardrobe staples were: ALL ON SALE! (Peter, stop laughing….)
This blouse feels great on, I thought it was silk….much to my pleasant surprise it is 100% polyester – after wearing it for the first time, had to throw it in the washing machine after dripping salad dressing all over it (yup, real elegant I am..)……(it came out beautifully).
Some stylists say to remove one accessory before you leave the house….in this case, I added one: a string of cultured pearls – Ginger’s, of course….feminine sophistication and just the right touch, don’t you think?
OK – these accessories were not on sale, they are my “investment pieces”, items that will be enjoyed over and over again, for years, never going out of style, always adding the ‘WOW” factor…….Hey, if you save so much in other places, now and then it’s ok to splurge! Agree ladies? What’s your latest splurge???? I won’t tell….;-)
