OOTD: Under $20 Black & White splashed with Red

Happy Monday!  I was a little hesitant on posting this outfit that I wore on Friday.  I didn't really love how the pictures turned out, but I  really wanted to share my OOTD, so I decided to go ahead and post it today.  The total cost of my outfit including the boots, drum role please...$18.33! 

 I love black and white, but I also believe you should add some color to the combination.  I chose to add red, it is one of my favorite colors to add and give black and white a splash of color.  Yes, my outfit is a little 80's inspired, I know.  What can I say I am a child from the 80's, and it brings back memories!  Love it or hate it, you should dress in whatever makes you feel comfortable regardless of what is "in style" at the moment.

I really need to do a thrift store haul video, I have really been finding such amazing deals!  Hopefully you will be seeing the haul by the end of this week.  My black wand white striped shirt was a little over sized, but I just loved the style of the shirt so I went ahead and got it.  These over sized shirts are also great to wear with skinny jeans or with leggings.

My red skirt came as part of a suit with a red blazer, I don't think I would wear it as a suit, but as 2 separate pieces.  I would also never wear this skirt with a fitted top, I do not want to accentuate my mommy belly.  My boots are amazing!  I also purchased them in eggplant from the Shoedazzle sale, I really couldn't beat the price.  I am so happy I did get these boot in both colors, they are so comfortable and so versatile.

Shirt: Goodwill $1
Skirt: Goodwill $1
Purse: H&M $3.50
Boots: Shoedazzle $12.88

Grand total: $18.33
