Ginger, it looks like we have the same taste in clothes because we have been eyeing this outfit for some time now. Too bad the shirt, pants, and sandals in the aspire photo cost a whopping $577 - we agree that there have to be other similar, stylish, wallet-friendly alternatives. Thankfully, we were able to find affordable options for just about everything. In addition to the blouse above, we found this top ($68) from Nordstrom, and we think it would look great with the pants pictured above, or these Ankle-Cut Skinny Jeans ($72). Be sure to check sites like Piperlime (where the original items are from), Nordstrom, Last Call, Forever 21 (especially for unbeatable prices on accessories), and DSW (for great prices on sandals). We think you will look fabulous when you put these pieces together, and we can't wait to do the same for ourselves!
1. Silk Pocket Top ($198)
2. Solid Cuff Bracelet ($22)
3. STS Blue 'Getaway' Flare Leg Jeans ($54)
4. Crystal Chain Drop Earring ($24)
5. G BY GUESS Lannea Sandal ($39.95)
6. BC Footwear Sting Ray Sandal ($29.95)
