white-washing

jcrew
striped top: Old Navy, khakis: Dickies mens, bow belt: random sash that came with some other pants, flats: Guess

For the most part I hate j.crew and all other forms of preppy, WASP-ish style (argyle!! argh), so I'm not quite sure how I ended up with this outfit... but I AM glad I finally found a perfect navy striped top, and on clearance for $2.50 too! Now all I need is to trade my messy backyard for a yacht and done some Sperrys.

Thank you guys for wishing me luck on my packing, haha. It's really not even all that much -since I've noticed that an overwhelming portion of my closet is tanks and summer tops, useless in an NY winter.
I'm just a big procrastinator.

BUT I've got about half done already... go me, I deserve a snack =)

  12. 2.50$?! Definitely the best when you find something you wouldn't expect and it's cheap! (Okay, I don't think that sentence made sense, but anyways..)

    That snack looks delicious! I just had dinner, but I could definitely go for a pretzel or two ;)

    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  24. Oh, I love the top. I've been hunting for one similar, but all the ones I've come across are too expensive for poor little me.

    Pretzels and peanut butter. I've never tried it, but I'm intrigued.
