{project fab} I Have Confidence

Marshalls is one of my favorite places to shop because I know I will always get a great deal.  I can find my favorite designers - like Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors and even Equipment - at amazing prices well below retail. Anyone who knows me will be shocked to see this outfit. Why? Because I'm wearing...white jeans. I always said I would never wear them (for fear of getting them dirty/I feel like they're see-through.) I guess this is why they say 'never say never.'  Since Marshalls makes me confident while shopping, I decided to go out of my comfort zone and wear something I was afraid of.  First white jeans, next, who knows! Maybe a date? ;)

While Lydia was taking photos of this outfit I was singing 'I Have Confidence' from The Sound of Music to myself. *I've always longed for adventure, to do the things I've never dared!* Yes, I'm very strange.  Knowing I got these pieces at amazing prices made that a bit easier. Even though no one else knows I'm wearing an Equipment blouse (except other fashionistas) it gives me confidence. Do you ever feel like that? Maybe you're wearing a certain pair of shoes that you got for dirt cheap and that fact puts a bit more spring in your step.  Or is that just me?

Mother Denim 'The Rascal' Crop Jean: $69.99, retail $196
Equipment 'Mina Tie Front' Blouse: $59.99, retail $198
Solitare Top: $16.99, retail around $32
Etienne Aigner Sunglasses: $9.99, retail around $35

Total Spent: $156.96 | Retail: $461 | Savings: $304.04

Also wearing:  Lauren Ralph Lauren sweater (Lord & Taylor), Marc by Marc Jacobs bag  (Saks Friends & Family Sale),  Necklace: Indulgems (Gilt), Guess heels (Marshalls)

Song of the Day: I Have Confidence from The Sound of Music

I couldn't decide between the Equipment blouse I'm wearing and a second top (which was only $17!) In the end I kept both, everyone should splurge once in a while! So watch out for the second top in a future post. Probably with these jeans.  I could have gotten shoes and a bag in place of the Equipment blouse, but I decided to go for it.

  1. Haha, well I certainly hope so! As someone who's said white is their favorite color on more than one occasion, I of course love these jeans. I think the pairing with the silk blouse, the textured and metallic knit, and the bright bag was just brilliant. And that pendant! So in love.

  2. Just came across your blog -- LOVE it!
    This outfit is too cute and the sweater looks
    so cozy and comfy! <#

  3. I think the white jeans look great and love the way you styled them! I haven't watch The Sound of Music in SO long!

  4. Megan, you look beautiful! I think you always look confident, but you are really radiating in these photos.

  5. Nice... and yes and yes.
    I have said I would never do a trend: printed trousers - and love them now.
    Also, when I know I am wearing a brand I love, it DOES give me that extra bit of confidence :)

  6. very Summery! and well done you! I don't have a pair of white trousers for the same reason, I would get them dirty before leaving the house!


  7. Yay for white jeans! I've been terrible at keeping mine clean, they always end up dirty when I wear them (like I spill something on myself haha). I always get that buzz in knowing I got something for a bargain - have been getting a few bargains lately - something I'm not usually used to, it's kind of addictive right?
