My sister, @mommyinsider – founder of the Mommy Insider, got an amazing opportunity to present “strollers at every price” on her local TV station a couple of weeks ago. I happened to be visiting last week and went with her to pick out an outfit for her AM television appearance TODAY!! She has a pretty tight budget for clothing and we had a 20% off coupon, so we headed to the Gap – you can always find interesting but classic pieces there – and ended up with a really great outfit. I also wanted to find her things she would wear all the time, not just for “special occasions.”
Here’s my sister on TV!!! (she did such a great job, and how cute is she?? – she’s my “little” sister…I can say that)
And here’s her outfit:
Double knit blazer: $59 – you’ll notice in the video that we stuck with my favorite color palette (gray, black & white) for her outfit 🙂 I just think it works…and I love the bit of color the belt brings.
Woven Ruffle Tank: $29 – we ended up getting this one because it was so much cheaper than the top we really loved, and also provided interest under the blazer. I prefer the high neck of the second one, but it was out of our budget.
Ultra skinny black denim leggings: $69.50 – these look so awesome on her!! She did have to size up one or two sizes for them to fit, but they are so hot!!
Skinny leather belt: $19.50, but it was on sale for $12 in the store. I wanted to add something colorful to her outfit, and really felt like the blazer needed something to give her a waist with this outfit.
And even though you can’t really see them, here are her shoes – they were perfect for this outfit, although she doesn’t think they’re very comfortable 🙁
