The $12 Work Wear

by Christen Coppola

Many of you who have been following me know that one of my favorite things to do is shop for things off season. Coats in summer, bathing suits in fall, etc. The only thing that sucks is having to wait for the next season to wear said items.
But the discount is worth it!

These pants for instance: bought last fall at Ann Taylor Loft... for $4.88! I swear to gawd, it's all about taking the time to browse the clearance rack! So I put these babies away all winter and rocked them all summer. While I will still wear white after Labor Day (gasp! I know.) I wanted to wear these amazing white linen pants on my last work day before the holiday.

This top is Rachel Roy that I found at the Goodwill for $2.50. I actually saw it at the Goodwill last week when it was $5, but passed on it. When I returned Monday (yes, I'm there THAT much), it was still there but half off! I have been on the hunt for short sleeved work appropriate tops that I can wear through fall. Lately I've found a couple!

Shoes are the real gem of this outfit. Thrifted a while ago for less than $5, they're Michael Kors sling back kitten heels with bows! I've been really into bows lately....
