You guys are awesome! I will be chopping off that green skirt soon. I really think I’m growing into my look with your hints and tips. I thought I was dead on with this outfit – the layering (that yellow tank is Anthropologie from the thrift store for $2 – score!), the multiple necklaces, the heels with trouser jeans – I really liked this all!
I find it hilarious that a lot of you are commenting on how I have great style. Really, I come from a history of bad style. Case in point, I’m busting out some clothes from my closet – keep in mind, I go through my closet every few months, but these make the cut every time – why?!? I’ll space them out over the coming weeks, but I’ll start with the gem of them all (don’t stop reading my blog because of the bad fashion you’re about to see!!)
Yes, you can click for a closer view. So, you think this is a hand-me-down or something – but no, I actually purchased the above outfit. We were going on our first cruise and I thought I needed something sequiny for the fancy dinner. Ill-fitting skirt, zip-up sequin gold top. So yep, I wore this and thought it was great. And it’s been in my closet ever since – just in case…..what?!? So I cleared it out today.
Alright, one more:
Jackets are in – but not this one! I think I got it when I graduated college and went shopping with my mom (who convinced me to buy it, I’m sure!) for “professional clothes” for interviews and working. It’s ill-fitting and suede-ish and came with black pants – I’m sure I wore it buttoned up like an outfit. Even though I’ve recently found a love of jackets as I’ve branched out my style, I’m sure this one is not a go.
To show you that I’ve grown, here’s a couple of new things I’ve purchased recently. I ventured into Forever 21 (the music in there is really loud – does that mean I’m old?!?) and found this sweater for $9 – I love it! It’s bulky but still has a great fit. The broach I got off of WhoopdWhoop and I love how it dressed up the sweater for church:
When in Branson for Spring Break we hit several stores at the outlet malls – there were lots of clearance sales, etc – this is a Gap sweater and I think it was $5 – I like it’s length and color, but I could do without the hood (but I still like the sweater):
