Impulse Buy

So, I'm in WallyWorld picking up diapers and what not, and a cool, Morroccan-ish pattern catches my eye...

It turns out to be a sort of tunic, that, at least in my sleep-deprived state seems kinda cute. I mean, not gawd-awful, right?

You know, put together with something along these lines...



It's not too "momo/new mommy-with-no-style" style, right? If you say yes, it truly IS geriatric (description borrowed from Erika and Darby), then I won't sweat - since my impulse was rather contained...

I know someone who approves, though, and her opinion matters most!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend, and in some way, honored those to whom we owe the three-day start of Summer.

Super cute - I would totally grab it! Is it just me, or has Target/Walmart been coming out with some reasonably cute stuff lately in the tunic dept?

Blueprint Bliss said...

$1???? It's so cute... and will look great w/ white jeans and some gold flats!

Morning T said...

Look at that big happy smile, what a sweetheart! Love that top and the print, you can rock it with the items in your polyvore creation.

Super cute in my book!

Darby said...

I love it! What brand is it... White Stag? I love it and it's not geriatric at ALL!

ms. less is always more said...

I like, I like! and for $1... bingo!

Emily A. Clark said...

They definitely did not have these on our $1 rack. Great find!

Hope things are starting to feel back to normal for you :) It's an adjustment, I know.

I'm with Isla I love it! Great find and for a buck craziness!

I have a dress I got at Walmart on sale for $4 and I get complements on it all the time! People think it's Tory Burch!

Allison said...

ADORABLE!! (the baby and the shirt!) I have the shirt in two colors (navy and the yellow) and I get compliments on it all the time!

benson said...

it's all about what you put it with--and you've done it with style. The average wallyworld customer might slap that on with gray sweatpants but you've brought it to another level.

laura @ so alaurable said...

Wow, $1? I think it looks great with the look you put together!

Trish said...

Gorgeous! I'm such a dork I might buy one to wear and two to make into pillows! I love that fabric!

Isabelle Lafleche said...

What a great find!! A lovely blog!

Lindsey said...

Adorable and almost comical at the price! Even at $14 that would be a find!!

Creategirl said...

Love it!! I would wear it, for that price its a total winner even if you use the fabric later to make a cute pillow!

Minnie said...

Even sleep-deprived, your style meter rocks. And little Isla knows it. She is so adorable. Isn't it just the best when they smile like that the first few weeks, almost makes you forget all the hard work.

I love the combo you've put together with your $1 find.

lemondropdreams said...

It's actually very cute, at least in the pic. I think you can pull it off.

my favorite and my best said...

meh on the dress. but if it looks cute on you then it is cute.
period.
your baby on the other hand is dumbcute.

What a happy and fun find! You'll look great in it!

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Hello! And for one clam...you could always turn it into a pillow if you didn't like it anymore...eh?

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

...and that little smiling jewel??!

A-dorable!

Stephanie Sabbe said...

I think it's cute, and baby is cuter. $1, love wallyworld. They don't have one in Boston.

Averill said...

I really love the pattern -- not too geriatric or mom-ish at all!

beki said...

I think it's cute...and for $1 - SCORE!

La Maison Fou said...
