Shirt - AE  // Skirt - Kmart  //   Necklace -  Macy's  //  Belt - Vintage  //  Earrings - Gifted  // Boots - kelly & katie

The denim shirt/fancy black skirt combo might qualify as one of the most popular outfit blog ensembles of all time. You'd be hard pressed to find someone who post's outfits regularly that hasn't interpreted this look in her own way and who am I to not cooperate? Since the weather has been unseasonably warm this fall (thank you soooo much Mother Nature) I'm trying to get as much use as I can out of my skirts and tights (before things look like this again) including this sassy little number I picked up at Kmart for fourteen buckaroo's. (Same shopping trip as the sequin sweatshirt!) Call me crazy, but the Bieb's girlfriend {aka Selena Gomez} is becoming a bit of a favorite these days.

Have you experienced any unexpected finds lately?

Update: this look was featured on DailyBuzz Style's "Ladylike in Lace" Top 9 roundup - honored!!

  1. Cute find. Gotta love a good deal. I finally found a non-black (I'm trying...) wool coat this weekend that fit, was on sale for 50% off and I happened to have $20 off and an extra 15% off coupon. Final price under $100. Score! Hope you had a great weekend.

  13. I have to admit, I usually don't like chambray. It was a trend that I just couldn't get on board with. But THIS. Wow. This is perfect! I love the lace skirt with the rugged fabric!

    Love it.

  17. I love the combo of a rugged shirt with an ultra feminine skirt. It's so chic and versatile! I recently found a cute lace dress in the Girl's department at Target for under $18!
