business in the front, party in the back.

Remember way back in January when I gushed about getting my hands on a pair of gray jeans from Martin & Osa? Yeah, me either. But I was able to track down the post I wrote here. I can't believe it was that long ago! I had tried them on back in February but had passed on them because the 26 was a little too snug, thank you sneaky winter weight gain, and I refused to go a size up (ridiculous, I know). In February they cost $99.50. Then sometime in April when I had already started my April Challenge they went on promotion for $59.50. I was definitely tempted. Then out of nowhere Martin & Osa decided to have the most amazing sale ever. The entire site was 30% off, full price and sale, bring the cost of the jeans down to about $41.75. Long story, a little less long, I bought them. 27's and all.

I picked up this navy blue top along with the jeans. For $27 this shirt is just short of amazing. It's called the "Mixed Media Top" rightly so. The front is 100% silk while the back is 100% jersey cotton. Auh-maz-ing. It's business in the front, party in the back, Ha! Like a mullet, only a gazillion times better. It has the most perfect amount of slouch to make it casual cool, without looking sloppy.

If you can't tell my my unusually large amount of pictures I can't get enough of this outfit, and yes the blazer is the one that has littered my last 3 outfit posts. It's just been one of those weeks, I felt like I needed to bring it full circle.

Anyways, the moral here is good things (like 60% off jeans) come to those who wait!

Have an amazing weekend!
