Thanks for the all the advice on hose – sounds like I need to invest in some tights. I know it’s a good discussion when even my mom pipes on in with a comment!
So moving on, I think my biggest issue is shoes. I have 2 pair of boots I bought this season to step up my style, and I love them. But sometimes I think I should wear something other than boots so I don’t have to wear skinny jeans that day. So I branch out and that’s where it gets tricky. I want to wear socks with flats, but it’s not a good look. I would revert back to my tennis shoes, but that’s not the point.
So here I am, dressed nice at a game night. My husband even said – “I noticed you looked nice today” – he knows I’m trying to step it up, so it’s nice that he points it out. It reminded me – oh yeah, I need to take a picture. So I did. The funny thing – I couldn’t decide what shoes to wear, but it was okay because we hosted, so I didn’t leave the house – socks were a go.
–Shrug, Express from a garage sale, $0.50 (you’ve probably noticed, I’m a super bargain shopper)
–Lace Tank, Downeast Basics, $10
–Jeans, GAP clearance $10
So, when I was in a thrift shop looking for handles (found them – score!) I looked at shoes knowing I need to expand my options. I found these and hope you approve – they have a heel! I wore them without socks but maybe I could have worn them with socks?!?
I wore them with this outfit, which is outside my comfort zone – I’ve noticed people putting belts over shirts, so I tried it. The shirt is probably a little dated – see the flared sleeves?? I have a shirt with a lace hem that stuck out under the shirt, but it must have scrunched up during the picture. I thought the necklace added color. And what’s with my hair, again!?! – it reminds me of boy hair from the 70s – kinda flat and long-bowlish….
–necklace – local resale store, $10
–belt – GAP clearance, $3
–shirt – garage sale??
–trouser jeans – garage sale, $4 (more than I usually pay at a garage sale, but a good move because they fit great)
–shoes, Mudd, thrift store, $4
Next week’s big discussion – jeans!
