Splurge vs. Save

The seahorse print is a theme throughout many pieces in the J Crew summer collection, this Boy Shirt being one of them.  

 

While it's definitely cute, seahorses might not be the pattern of choice for years to come. Let's just say it's not quite as classic as gingham, so $88 is a bit much for a "trendy" piece. 

Leave it to Target to offer a similar style at a fraction of the price. This Merona Lawn Shirt is only $23, and I actually think it is cuter. The print is smaller and not quite as distracting. I like it so much, I already bought one.



Here's a quick shot of the shirt with some Merona shorts I also purchased! 

Make sure to look out for future "What I Wore" posts to see how I style my new seahorse shirt!
