. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Stripes on Stripes

August 13, 2013

Stripes on Stripes

tee: old navy   skirt: target   sandals: target

1.  If I wasn't so antsy and excited to buy and wear maternity clothes I would've looked for more things like this skirt.  I found it near the end of my pregnancy and wore it here, and love that I can wear it now. 

2.  It's only necessary to tell you how much each of these things cost. 
     Shirt: $4
     Skirt: $5
     Sandals: $5 

3. I saw these sandals a month or so ago for over $15 and couldn't do it, as I have plenty of sandals.  Then I happily found them at Target last week for only $5.  Patience, patience, patience.  

4. I tend to wear something over and over and have already worn these sandals the last three times I've left the house and will probably continue to do so.  So be prepared to see them often.  

5.  I missed tying my shirt while pregnant.  Didn't work quite so well while having no waist or hips.  Please tell me this still fashionable?

Love it! I have those sandals and they are my favorite!! If only I could have been more patient. Still, I only paid $12 for them on sale. Not too bad, since I wear them all the time! I love the knotted look, too. I have been seeing it a lot lately. I only tried it just last week for the first time. :)

I would have never thought to have paired those two items together but they work so well together. Totally why you fashion blog and I don't I guess LOL

Those sandals are so cute and I am jealous of people who get to go to Target on a frequent basis - that just does not exist in NYC!
