Before I discuss the outfit, let me explain my poses. I was jamming to Taylor Swift - Mean, so I was caught dancing in some of the pictures.
Layers was a huge component of this outfit. The star of the outfit was my Peace, Love, Obama t shirt, I got it after the last election in 2008 from Rue21 $10. So I had to put an outfit together around this shirt, while the election news was still a hot topic.
As I said in my previous post, I've been trying to create ways to wear a t shirt other than with sweat pants or jeans. The day before wearing this outfit I stopped into Rue21 and one of the items that I found was a cute, strapless, fitted, corset type dress for $6! It just so happened to go well with the t shirt, color-wise, because they're both pastel colors. The pink in the tee goes with the multi shades of pink in the dress (only the skirt part shows because of the layering). So I knew that I had to try wearing this outfit with shirts layered on top of this dress. For warmth I wore a long sleeved thermal shirt in a dark teal green color that complimented both the tee and the skirt (rainbow $3 clearance). I added purple-magenta colored tights that matched some of the colors in the dress, and flat beige ankle boots with side straps (actually also a Rue21 purchase from about 1 year ago). My pink ribbon and pearls bracelets (3 stacked) were from Kohls, in support of breast cancer awareness.
All in all, this was a fun outfit that showed support from our newly reelected president.
Peace, Love, Obama!
