Hard to Find Replacements

There are items in every closet that have been there for years. Not the sentimental items or the items that you've forgotten to clear out. I am talking about the items that have proven their worth and then some. The ones you practically grieve when they finally are done. My striped tunic from last week was a fabulous clearance find probably about 7 years old. Then it was stained from something in the wash and I was so disappointed. Replacements are hard to come by for those old favorites. But this striped top from Sammydress is perfect. The fit is spot on and I actually like slightly darker color even more. The only bad thing about my old one was that it was a tunic and had pockets making layering difficult. This one is a smooth, thinner fabric so it lays really nicely underneath sweaters. At less than $10 I couldn't go wrong! 

See how I've worn these pants with a mustard cardigan and these flats with a fox sweater, red and navy, red jeans, grey cords, and burgundy pants.

  7. I have this mint cardigan that I LOVE--it will be a devastating loss when that piece goes! This striped shirt is really nice. Looks like a fabulous layering piece.

  12. I adore this layered look Laura! The colors look just lovely together! There are a few items that I've had for quite a while that always looks good and I'll be sad if anything ever happens to them!

  13. I actually have a long list going right now of items I want to find as replacements. It's so hard to find things to replace items you love so much!

  14. Love this look on you, Laura! I'm starting to regret my decision to buy ankle length navy pant instead of full length. Maybe I'll force my ankles to endure for the sake of style! :P

  17. Yes, I totally know what you mean. I get really attached to certain pieces that I wear all the time and I do have a hard time letting go when they wear out! I'm glad you were able to find a replacement for your tunic--I love the one you found, and what a great deal!

  18. Those blue and white stripes really pop out from the sweater, such a chic look! I hate when an old item that I love finally bites the dust... it is hard to find a perfect replacement sometimes!

  22. Yay, for a fabulous replacement piece. Love that necklace, too. And so very envious of your snow. However our 76 degree afternoon was pretty nice.
