(The bright orange cardi was my favorite!)
When this was pointed out to me (by my fashion-savvy mother) I immediately started looking for anything orange I could find.
Following a trend can get a bit pricey though, especially if you want to get it while it's hot. I would typically just wait a few seasons and pick it up later at a thrift store or off a clearance rack, but this was one that I just had to be a part of.
Introducing my $5 Wal-Mart find!
The fit of this simple T has quickly become on of my favorites. Adding to that an Old Navy button down that I've had since high school and my most comfortable pair of jeans makes this outfit one that is incredibly comfortable and kinda cute (and I'm all about that combo!).
This is a way more casual look to the J Crew pieces I had tried on, and the orange is not as brilliant, but I'm excited to try this with some white or light denim shorts, or even tuck it into a pencil skirt with a cardi and some pumps! The possibilities are endless... and easy on the budget.
The moral of my story, ladies, is don't so get caught up in name-brand trends that you miss out on some cheap treasures that might be found in unlikely places (like on a Wal-Mart grocery run!). Trends don't always have to take a wad of cash to accomplish, but it sometimes may take the effort of keeping your eyes open for alternatives, or hunting around on the internet or local thrift spots!
Have ya'll been getting into any orange lately? Or am I the only one who's a fan of this bright color?
