You know how you see something in a store and you want it but it costs too much so you leave it there? You spend the next few weeks/months dreaming of when the price will go down enough so that you can get it - secretly thanking God that you no longer live in NYC so no one really knows it's from four seasons ago by the time you get it! I kinda love that feeling! I had that feeling when I was doing the whole "Deal of the Day" thing on my twitter page. Even though I don't have a daughter, the feeling still hit me.
There was a shirt that I just loved but I thought the price was insane. I mean it wasn't like Gucci prices but it was more than I would pay for a shirt for myself, much less for my pretend daughter! And I didn't love it, love it - but I thought it was unique enough to make a cute outfit. I would see it every day while looking for deals to post on twitter. But it wasn't unique enough to be $77! That's right - $77! Then it would go on sale for $60 or $45. These prices are still way too high for a shirt for my pretend daughter - though it may be perfect for some of you and your real daughters. Anywho, it's finally on sale at a price that I can stomach. So here I am to put this twill shirt (that is perfect for fall) together with a couple of things that I hope someone out there gets for their daughter or niece or goddaughter or cousin...you get the picture!
The offending article of clothing is this Splendid Girls' Military Twill Shirt.
I also envision this shirt with a super cute denim skirt and cream leggings with ballet flats or boots. A pair of shorts would work, too - as long as the shirt is left open/partially open with a cami - and some simple sneakers (like Converse or Vans). Here are a couple of options to go with this minor obsession of mine:
