I know normally first thing Wednesdays is the show-off from the link-up, but for this new year I’m switching things up a little. Show-offs will be up this afternoon, and in the morning, I’m going to show off what I’ve been wearing….
Huh?? Well, I’ve been trying to step up my style. Spruce up my look of jeans and tshirts. You can kind of call it a goal, but I’ve been trying for a month or two already. Over at The Pleated Poppy she has a What I Wore Wendesday, so I thought if I started participating in WIWW then I’d have to dress fabulous at least one day in the week so I could take a picture and show it to you. So here you go:
This outfit is stepping WAYYY outside of my comfort zone, but I went with it. At a resale shop I saw this cute dress, but it’s winter, plus the dress is super short. My shopping partner said to buy it and wear it with skinny jeans or leggings. So I did. I love when people tell me what to buy!!
–dress, DITTO (local resale shop), brand Twenty-One, $12
–black shirt, garage sale ($0.50?)
–skinny jeans, walmart Black Friday $8 (I only bought skinny jeans because I was told I need them if I want to wear boots – I thought they were ridculous, but now I wear them a lot because they’re easy to fit in boots)
–boots, Target, $35 (I think) – I was not on the boot bandwagon, but got talked into them and now love them! they make me feel “hip”!
–earrings, Adams Mayfleet, a local shop (chunky jewelry sets for $10 – what a deal!)
So, what do you think?? Are those ruffles too much – I felt silly wearing them, but just went with it. My husband saw the get-up and stared and I said “What??” and he said “I’m sure it’s normal, I just don’t know a lot about fashion” – funny!!
