Thrifty Thursday a la Paris

A little french inspiration for your Thursday... starting with a black and white striped tee as the inspiration for this outfit:
Fab Striped 3Q Top - Forever 21, $9.50

I'd pair it with the knit (how cool, a knit motorcycle jacket?)  jacket below from Forever21.  For a more relaxed look, try leaving it unzipped.

Knit Moto Jacket in Grey,, $15.50

Add a little delicate detail to the outfit with a thin silver chain or chains over top of the striped shirt, like this one below for $4.80 from Forever21.

Feathered Lavaliere Chain

Pair those tops with one of these two pairs of super cheap jeans, also from Forever21.  I picked two because I really think you could make this otufit work with either type of pant.  Yes, it would look more french inspired with the black skinny pant, but since we all know that the skinny doesn't work for everyone, the other option is cheaper and just as cute.
(L) Fab Flare Jean, $14.50 (R) H81 Double Stiched Skinny, $24.90

Add a simple, cute pair of black patent ballet flats from Target and... VOILA!  A cute french inspired and thrifty find for your Thursday.

Mossimo Odell Flat in black patent,, $12.99

Total cost: With Skinny Jean: $68, With Flared Jean $58
