It Started With a Cameo

From Michael's! I've been wanting a cameo pendant. I just didn't want to spend a lot of money on one, and I hadn't found one that I just loved yet. But Saturday, I found one at Michael's, of all places. It was exactly what I was looking for. And it was on sale!! So I bought the cameo and a velvet cord to put it on. I have $6 in the whole thing!! Look:
My outfit this morning was put together around the cameo. Have you ever done that? Put together an outfit around one piece? I've done it many times for a pair of shoes! Here's what I came up with. It's just a simple gray tshirt from Wal Mart. I love cheap t shirts because when they start to fade or look worn, I don't feel bad about tossing them and buying another one for $3. The cute skirt is actually a Faded Glory skirt from Wal Mart, too, but I bought it at the St.Mary's Hospital thrift store on Broad St for $5. The shoes were given to me by Lise. (Have I mentioned how fabulous it is that we wear the same size shoes. She has some boots on today that I really, really want to steal!!)

Can you see the little beaded flower detail?
 It's finally feeling a little fallish around here. We went from 95 on Saturday to 65 on Sunday. Is it too much to ask to get a happy medium there?!

What are your favorite pieces to build an outfit around?
