Mid Week Muse: Splurge, Steal, Style

splurge // steal // style: top, jeans, shoes, sunglasses, bracelet

This week's Mid Week Muse with Morgan is a touch different.  I thought it would be fun to share an actual "muse" (the splurge), and then show you a similar piece for less (the steal.)  Of course no Mid Week Muse would be complete without a styled outfit, so that's just a bonus.  (This week, the "styled shirt" is the exact same piece, just a different color due to some technical difficulties.)  But onto the good stuff...

You may recognize this "muse" as the often coveted rag and bone tank.  I've been eyeing this tank forever, and I even featured it in this Mid Week Muse post in April.  Last weekend, I stumbled upon this almost identical version of the top for substantially less.  The only difference is that there isn't a slit in the back of this top, but I actually like that more (I'm not much of one for showing off the portion of my stomach where my jeans meet my waist...)  The "steal" version of the top comes in TONS of colors, but if you want to be most true to the "splurge," stick with blue or grey.  I do happen to like the green for a fun styled look as well.  

What's your "muse" this week?  Share your muse by linking up or commenting below.  AND, as an added incentive, Morgan and I will now be choosing our favorite "muse" from the current week to feature on both of our blogs.  The "winner" will be notified the Tuesday evening before the post goes live on Wednesday.  Get sharing - we can't wait to see your muses!  While you're sharing, be sure to visit some of the other blogs and say hello as well.
