What's Better Than a $3 Shirt?

Remember me mentioning that I found the cutest top for $3 in yesterday's post?
Well, I actually wore it yesterday.
I just love the colors and fun pattern.
I paired this fun top with my wide legged jeans,
wedges and jean jacket.
The weather was cool,warm and back to cool
so the jacket was a great addition.

My top is made of some synthetic fabric that has pleats that are like an accordion.
It made it a little tricky to keep tucked in
and not have it balloon out around my midsection. 
Might try the top untucked next time.
I know it is not Labor Day yet, 
but rules be damned!
  I am wearing a white belt. 
 The timer went off when I was taking off my jacket. 
Looks like serious business taking off a jacket doesn't it?

side note- I have had questions about my wide legged jeans and the grommets at the bottom.
The jeans did not come like this.
The grommets are actually
 Now I don't have to hem my pants and can wear them with any size heel.

jacket-Old Navy
belt-White House/Black Market

Not much is better than a great $3 top if you ask me! I never have heard of Hemgems before...but my short self is very interested! I'm going to go explore now. Thanks!

I also have never heard of HEMGEMS, but I think it is something I am going to research...thanks!!

Peggy said...

I'm with you, not much better than that! Love the serious face! Wide leg jeans rock!

Kari said...

I've heard of the Hemgems before -- do you like them? Maybe I could have used them on my maxi dress :-). You look great in this too.

I love your jeans! I have never heard of Hemgems. I am going to have to check those out. I have several pairs of pants that I could use those for.

That top is cute, and I totally think white is wearable any time of the year.

Debby said...

Great elements, superb combination. Excellent look.

Those wedges are from Target?? I love them. Are they comfy? Inquiring minds want to know.

I caught your sickness and have been in bed for days. Just got back to it today. I've caught up on all your posts. Great outfits all around, lady!!

Oh Tracy I am so sorry to hear you had even anything remotely close to what I had. It is awful isn't it.
Glad you are feeling better!
Hope you have a super weekend

There is nothing better than a $3 shirt! Print is so cute.
How are the hemgems working out? I have seen them before and wondered...

Terri said...

Have never heard of hem gems, but they sound like a lifesaver. I'll bet that top will look beautiful, untucked, on a windy day.

Deborah said...

I am loving the wide legged jeans. I'm so ready to get some and leave the not-so-skinnies behind. Or leave my behind behind. Or whatever I can leave. Ha!

That blouse is awesome! Love it. I want to see it not tucked in. Very curious!

Hemgems- what a great idea! I have such stumpy legs that pants never fit me but I don't want to invest time and money into hemming. I LOVE your shirt- what a great find!

Wendy said...

Fabulous look. Being a foreigner I don't quite get the whole labour day rule though - but as you said, rules be damned - you're rocking

hotpants said...

I love the wedges! Target never has cute shoes in my size. I'm going to have to start looking online.

Hemgems? Never heard of em...

Better than a $3 top that is that cute? Not much! I love it, and it looks so cute with jeans and wedges.

Hey There Carole! said...

Great outfit... very cute! Those jeans look fantastic on you.

silvrgurl said...

Hemgems are the best!

silvrgurl said...

I use them quite a bit
Will probably order a second set soon
Would like to have a few more for the wide leg jeans

silvrgurl said...

I know can you believe those shoes are from Target
Yes, they are comfortable and that is saying a lot from someone that doesn't
wear high shoes very often

silvrgurl said...

hemgems are great
maybe need a second set for wide legged jeans, but reg
size pant leg one set is perfect

silvrgurl said...

I usually get mine online because as you say, the store usually never has my
