|I miss Italia!!!|
I bought this lovely halter top years ago at Macy's. I was about as budget conscious then as I am now, and felt super guilty about spending SO much money on a top that I couldn't say, "Ah, but it will go with everything I own!" But I'm glad I did...
..because shortly around the time I bought it, I saw a picture of Audry Hepburn wearing the very same thing in a biography my brother bought me.
So there. If anyone gives me grief about this top, I will tell them they are jealous of my Hepburn-like beauty. And my cooking skills, too.
I paired the top with a white skirt (before Memorial Day, I know), a teal cami (skirt and cami from Express), black leggings (Romy), a black blazer (Issac Mizrahi...I think? for Target), my favorite black pumps, and a super fake pearl necklace (Target).
You may laugh at my frugality...but here's one of the big reasons I like to dress cheap when I can.
I ruin stuff.
Like the day I wore this super cute outfit. I was also being super healthy and brought a yummy salad to work:

Lucky for me I keep Grandma's Secret Spot Remover on hand at home. And I'm happy to report that after spot treatment and a regular machine washing, the skirt is almost 100% recovered.
When your Eating Well gets in the way of Dressing Cute, it's time to Think Sharp.
