I Wu...Do You...





 Skirt-Benetton/Blazer-Gap/Shirt-Jason Wu for Target/Booties-Steve Madden via Gilt/Jewelry-Accent Shop


I had all the plans in the world to get up early and wait, hopefully in a short line, while sipping my coffee, for my local Target to open so I could get a good look at the Jason Wu collection...there were a few items I was hoping to scoop up.  But I got sick the Friday before, and barely moved off the couch until Sunday afternoon. By the time I got up the strength to get dressed and get my butt to Target, I had to go anyways so I had groceries for the boys lunches, the racks of Wu were empty... not an item in sight.  I was not that disappointed since I have been trying to slow my roll on buying clothes anyways...at least that was what I told myself!  Fast forward a few days and I mention to my mom about the collection when she mentions that she has to make a target run...so I tell her to look out for the collection and see what she could find. The wonderful women bought me the this neck shirt...great choice...love the shirt!!  The tie neck makes me feel classy and all ladylike, but it being a t-shirt gives it a casual vibe.
I had a meeting with a client that I always like to impress, so I decided to style it with this grey pencil skirt, blazer with satin lapels and of course my new Steve madden booties. I call this my casual corporate look...

I love a tie-neck blouse - I am happy to see they are everywhere nowadays! This is a great outfit - professional yet fun with the booties and the pattern on the top.

Oh, I like it!! It's very classy. I love that it's a t-shirt, so you could dress it up like you did, or dress it down, too.

Awesome, I love what your mom picked!! I never did find any Wu for myself--my Target had nothing. I'm still hoping maybe they'll get a few online returns. Fingers crossed. :)
