Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Honore Boston_7fam_melissa_tory burchEven though the weather was a bitty iffy today, I chanced it with my friend Alison and took a nice stroll through the neighborhood. I proudly wore my Honor Boston T from Rue La La, which really says it all: TOUGH PROUD BRAVE FREE BOSTON. Thank you Rue La La for supporting the Emergency Fund at MGH!

With such a simple T, I decided to couple it with a pair of ikat print skinny cropped jeans. Couldn’t help myself, had to work print into the outfit somehow! Since we were doing a bit of walking, I grabbed my black felted loafers. I love the gold crowns on them; just wanted to be queen for the day. Of course, I had to load up on some arm candy to completethe outfit.

Before beginning our stroll, we had to stop for coffee stat! And no stroll would be complete without a stop at my favorite consignment store, Closet Connection. I did make out with a great little dress, but you will have to wait and see what it looks like in a future post! I know, the suspense must be killing you. Alison didn’t do so bad herself! Then came the downpour….
