the outfit

We're getting ready to head up to Michigan for my 20 yr reunion (among other things). You might remember this post when I asked my wonderful readers to help me with picking out a top. Well, I ended up going with the 3rd one for 2 reasons ~ I figured it was the one that would look the best on me and it has green...my favorite color :) 

So here's the thing, the top looks really good on me (and truth be told makes my...ahem...chest look bigger...always a plus ;) But I can't get over the cost. I mentioned before that I don't spend a lot of money on clothes. I shop at Target & Walmart and if it's in the department stores you'll usually find me in the clearance or sales racks. I just don't like to waste money on clothes.

Soooo.....

I was in Kohls the other day and check out what I found...

And do you know what?? That entire outfit (with necklace) cost about the same as that one top from Anthropologie!! I know!!! It's hard to tell in the pics cause I have crappy lighting in my room in the afternoon but that top is a really pretty shade of green.

I still haven't decided what top I'll wear. Cause the Anthro top matches the capri pants I bought. I'm trying to dress up a casual outfit. Our reunion is 'business casual' so I don't wanna go all formal but I don't want to show up in jeans either. I was hoping to wear a skirt but I can't seem to find one I like which is why I bought the heels & necklace to jazz up this outfit. And these cuties are sooo comfy...

...and I may try to squeeze in a little shopping in MI the day before the reunion if I have time ;)

I have some stuff scheduled to post while I'm gone cause I know you guys just couldn't live without me while I'm gone! HA!! And btw, if anyone is blog stalking me, I may or may not have someone house sitting for me who may or may not be armed and may or may not have a really big dog. Plus, unless you want a 9 yr old tv or an even older VCR, I have nothing to steal. I'm just sayin'...

I love that top and the entire outfit is adorable. You are going to be a hit at the reunion (and maybe be able to buy a few extra things with the money you saved on the outfit). Enjoy!
