What NYC Recessionista Wears: Sailing Away

I felt like I belonged on a yacht out at sea in this top yesterday … which made it kind of sad that I was on dry land and at work.

What a waste of some perfectly nautical stripes!

Bonlook glasses / Ross Simon pearl earrings (similar) / Forever 21 striped tee / Prima Donna necklace (similar) / J. Crew Factory pencil skirt (similar) / Madewell sandals

I wasn’t too sure about this color combination at first — the tee doesn’t exactly match with the skirt — but once I put it on, it felt a little vintage french riviera to me.

I decided to add a little art deco to the outfit with my necklace …

This is definitely how you dress up a t-shirt and make it office appropriate!
