My Outfit Monday: This outfit brought to you by Katie's Closet
Can I let you guys in on a secret? Lately, I've been in a shopping slump.
I just haven't had that much luck recently. Granted, I've been on the hunt for notoriously problematic pieces -- jeans and swimsuits -- but still.
Luckily, things started looking up this weekend. Enter Deal Diva Katie, who let me raid her closet.
Yay for good friends!
I'm pretty sure I left Katie's house yesterday with three bags of clothes. This morning I knew I'd have no trouble picking an outfit.
I started with an adorable black linen blazer Katie had, and paired it with a blue, grey and cream blouse she agreed to part with.
I went to my own "pile" for the navy skirt, which I got for $2.78 at Sunshine Thrift. (Some of you devoted readers may remember it from the $5 challenge we had about a year ago). The skirt has a subtle pinstripe pattern and hip-forgiving detail on the sides. And it's lined!
I kept the accessories to a minimum, opting for a simple necklace I swiped from my mom's jewelry box the last time I visited.
I considered going a little crazy with my shoes, but instead went for my mainstay zipper pumps. Ehh, it's Monday, right?
Oh, I also should say that Katie is the creative genius behind today's photo. Don't I look relaxed and maybe even a teeny bit taller?
