I think I’ve mentioned to you guys before that I only shop online. I feel terrible whenever someone asks me for New York shopping recommendations, because I honestly don’t have any beyond the obvious department stores and SoHo boutiques. Having to shop for clothing in-person is something I avoid at all costs.
The downsides of online shopping? Besides having to wait a few days for your package, product pictures can be super deceptive. There’s always a chance what you thought was something amazing looks and fits nothing like what you expected, or on the flip side you could potentially miss out on a great find just because it didn’t initially catch your eye on a screen. For me the pros 100% outweigh the cons. The time I can save in just a few clicks versus physically shlepping to a store is invaluable.
Okay so my point for sharing this is that I almost didn’t order these jogger pants and this t-shirt. I mean, both items are pretty basic and not necessarily things that jump out to you when there are hundreds of other pants and tops to choose from. I almost passed over them both, but the under $50 price tags and free shipping got me so I added them to my cart at the last second.
Well I’m glad I acted on that impulse because what a pleasant surprise! I had originally thought I would style these things casually, but I ended up really liking how the joggers paired with my favorite wedges (also under $100!) Having a few extra inches of height and adding some chic accessories like a leather handbag, definitely elevates the look into an outfit that’s weekday appropriate. I live in ensembles like this Monday through Friday when I’m running around to meetings and events!

Don’t you love successful online shopping trips? This one was a hit for me and MAJOR bonus points that everything was a budget find! Just for fun I linked up a few more wallet-friendly pant and top options for you guys below. I’m super temped to get this t-shirt in another color and this pair of striped linen trousers!
