Never Settle




Shirt (Target); Belt (Francescas); Skirt (Stolen from Mom); Shoes (Nine West)
Necklace (Vintage); Earrings (Nordstrom); Ryan Seidel Photography

I'd been on the hunt for the perfect chambray shirt for awhile...  which meant the right color, the right details, at the right price.  For some reason I got $20 stuck in my head and I didn't want to spend more.  Old Navy had a cute option, although it didn't meet all my criteria and at the time was $25 (now on sale for $17.50!).  So when I found "the one" at Target for $19.99, I may have made a slight scene (gasping, oohhing and ahhhing).  Moral of this story:  NEVER settle: I was very close to settling for less - and now I have the perfect chambray shirt... among other things ;)

I am loving your shoes! I have a similar pair from Nine West but are a maroon suede material but yours are much more spring/summer appropriate!

I agree with you about waiting until you find the clothing item that meets your needs. I have trouble with doing that. I am always doing my spring shopping as soon as the first shipments hit in the stores. I need to wait to give the perfect piece of clothing time to appear, and not just buy the first pair of white pants I see.

I haven't seen this chambray at my target! It's very nice. I recently bought one from JCrew outlet that I love! And it's true... You should never settle for anything! Patience grasshopper.. Patience!

Oh wow, that is a great shirt and I love that skirt! The belt is the perfect detail! Great shoes too!

Head to Toe Chic said...

Love your shirt!! I bought a chambray shirt at Target last summer for $20 too. I definitely couldn't justify spending more than that at the time. Although, I've found that I wear that shirt a lot!

I think you got yourself a great deal and I usually set a price on what I want to pay for something. $20 for a chambray shirt is a fair price!
