Tube top professional

Believe it or not, you can actually wear a tube top to work. Crazy, I know. But it's just one more trick I've learned that helps maximize my wardrobe. Whereas typically I would wear this tube top with jeans and heels for a somewhat casual night out, this time I paired it with a pleated skirt (tucked in) and lace top to make it work appropriate. It could also be a great piece that I extend into fall or winter with a thicker cardigan.

Here's the cheapskate outfit breakdown:
1. Tube top, Forever21 ($14.99)
2. Skirt, Forever21 ($19.99)
3. Lace top, Banana Republic ($59.99)
4. Shoes, Nine West ($19.99)
5. Handbag, BCBGirls ($30.00)
6. Heart necklace, ATL Market ($5.00)
7. Sunglasses, streets of Venice, CA ($
8. Bangles (gifted)
9. Gold cuff bracelet (gifted)
10. Stud earrings, ATL Market ($2.00)
11. Butterfly hairpiece, Forever21 ($2.99)

Oh and just a side note, it was 107 degrees outside the day we shot this on our lunch break. Talk about a hot sweaty mess I was going back to work!

I would wear that work. In fact, I have worn a tube top to work, lol. Love the skirt, it's very chic. I've been looking for something like that, but as I shop at thrift stores, it tends to take time to find exactly what I'm looking for.
Very cute outfit, indeed. :)
