Thrifty Thursday

Going easy here today... a nice relaxed outfit for running errands or meeting the girls for lunch on the weekend.  The length of the shirt makes it look girly, while still having the preppy and classic look to it (love the "tuxedo" detail!).  The jeans are a simple slim bootcut pair, a good balance to the width of the shirt.  I love this little trench from Old Navy, and although $49.50 might not seem like a steal for Thrifty Thursday standards, you really won't be able to find much else in the trench arena for that good of a price - to put it in perspective, most stores sell their trench coats for 150-200 dollars, so $50 is a small investment to make (although I will add that if you do have the money to splurge, spending $200 on a nice, lined trench is a really good idea because a classic trench will never go out of style, seriously).  The flats have a cute ruffle detail to carry the girli-ness through the outfit.  The croc clutch is so classy and chic - the dark brown color looks very rich.  Lastly, the necklace and ring are both pretty simple but still have some glam in them- exactly what the preppy outfit needs.
