Lauren Conrad Blouse: Kohl's (clearance) $8
Pants: Old Navy $26
Heels: TJ Maxx (clearance) $10
Scarf: Gift
Total Outfit Cost: $44

I scored this blouse on the clearance rack at Kohl's last week, and y'all I am smitten. It is seriously perfect. I already know it'll be one of those items I'll want to wear once a week, you know like my coral blazer, fur vest, and aztec sweater. I guess that's part of building a closet of things that I love. Good thing this blouse has so much remixing potential. I may have to use it one month for the "many days many ways" link up. Oh and speaking of being smitten, Valentine's Day is in TWO days. What the heck. I didn't even realize that it was this week until Monday! 
Ps. I now have my "shop my closet" page on instagram, check it out @goodwillistascloset

  3. Love love love this look! I really like how you've added two fun colors to the black and white outfit.

  4. Such a cute top! and I especially love it paired with the red. It's times like these where I wish I didn't read blogs because now I have the urge to go to Kohl's to hunt down the exact top, but I'll resist :)

  5. I love the heels! I've noticed you've started an awesome "Shop My Closet" bit on your site, so I have to ask: How often do you purge your closet, decide you need to update items, set out to make a new purchase in general? I'm constantly finding great deals, but my closet runneth over and I'm always up for learning other's tips and tricks!


  6. I think I understand now why a black/white patterned top is so important. You're right, it's so versatile. It goes with everything, can be dressed up or down, especially a polka dot top like yours. Great steal on that!
    This outfit looks so fantastic on you! The bright pops of color in your scarf and heels just put the whole outfit together. Nice touch on the matching red lips!

  7. What a great find, lucky girl! You look adorable.

  8. Ooohhh... a red scarf. I need to find one. This is stunning. And that blouse for $8? Such a steal!

    You got me with the polka top and red scarf xx

    By the way, I just updated my blog with a new post. I’d love for you to swing by: http://www.fashchronicles.blogspot.com

  9. Love the pops of color with your scarf and shoes! Pretty lip color, too!

  10. I'm smitten with your heels! They are super! But don't you love it when you just know how much you're going to love something?! Talk about awesome-ness.

  11. Super cute! I'd be smitten with that blouse too if it were in my closet...and those heels!


  12. You always look super cute in the simplest outfits. Love how you tied that scarf. A little bit of red, a lot of polka dots and a ton of romance in this look, for Valentine's Day. =)

    I miss you on my blog so stop by. I have a special Valentine's Day post coming tomorrow. I am also looking forward to your link up next week. =)

    Happy VDay - your first one as a married lady. Ada. <3

  13. i saw this shirt there, and may need to go back and buy it for myself. i love it, and it looks great on you!

  14. Lauren Conrad is my girl. Okay, not in the weird sense, but I seriously love her line at Kohl's. I own an embarrassing number of things she's designed. Oops? Also, I saw heels similar to yours on Nordstrom's site. Yeah, this post makes me want to click the confirm order button. Instead, I'll just let the stuff sit in the cart until no more are left. I'm so weird.

  15. Oh, I love this blouse! It's the exact same color and design as a skirt I wore yesterday (on my blog). The pattern looks better on the blouse than the skirt. I like your style.

  16. That blouse IS perfect, I'm sure it'll be a staple for you!! What a good find. Love the shoes too.
