I had the best of intentions to stay with this “What I wore Wednesdays” thingy…but alas, I have been LIVING in my painting clothes and gym clothes…but here are a few outfits that are
I know that many of you are like me. We love Clothes, but our lives are just the same routine. No real reason to get gussied up, but I do feel better, when I have taken a moment to dress NICER than sweatpants. A few years back..I had an aha moment. As a consummate sales a bargain shopper..I have always hunted down the best deals and often missed things when they were fresh a new. I realized, in this phase of my life, that I did not need to spend much on dress up clothes…but that it was a worthwhile investment to spend a bit more on FEWER basics…so that is what I have done. I do not shop much, but when I do, I try to save here and there, but if something really catches my eye and I KNOW I will live in it…I might spend a bit more…dare I say..even FULL price to have that good staple piece. And I save other places.
TOP – ANTHROPOLOGIE
JEANS – FOREVER 21 ( I PURPOSELY DID NOT BRING JEANS ON THE TRIP…SO I COULD BUY THEM, I GOT THESE AT FOREVER 21 FOR $7.80!!!)
SHOES – TORY BURCH SLIDES – these were a splurge, but here is the thing, if you pop on a pair of TORY BURCH slides with anything…it upscales the outfit. So grab your target tee and your Torys and in this case my Forvever 21 $7.80 jeans….you are good to go…
Top – Forever 21
“jackie Sweater” – J CREW
jeans – Forever 21
PHOTO SHOOT OUTFIT-
TUNIC TOP – ANTHROPOLOGIE – I am loving this Tunic from Anthropologie. I wore it three times over one weekend (different crowds.) It can be dressed up..or down. Jeans or leggings. With boots or flats or short booties…adorable. You know I rarely talk clothes on my blog, so you know if I am gushing over a piece of clothing it MUST BE great..this top is amazing. I am a 4-6 and got a Small.
(every Wednesday you can get 40% off of one item!) this is another item I have not taken off. It has these cute patches on the sleeves and makes any outfit look so cute. I live in this blazer…and you can get % off almost every day of the week there.
JEANS – FOREVER 21
FRYE BOOTS again . LIVE IN THESE!!!
me and my Fryes…we go way back. I know I am using the phrase “live in these” a bit much..but these ARE me. I have worn my Fryes with skirts to church, to soccer games, all around New York City (they are the only boot I can walk in all day and get no blisters or sore feet). I gave them to my Nieces last year for Christmas because I know they will last FOREVER and ever amen, and that they will never go out of style.
(if you click any of the above photos they will take you to the item in its site)
so basically – MY UNIFORM (outside of painting clothes and gym clothes) IS:
1.Frye Harness Boots
2. Killer pair of skinny jeans, if they fit great I love them.
3. White or Blue button down shirt, my favorite right now are my Vineyard Vines Ones.
5. V Neck “Vintage” T shirts and Jackie Sweaters from J Crew
6. Fun different Anthropologie tops.
7. I actually found that LOFT carries a great selection, and fantastic prices of nice thin V Neck sweaters which I Love to wear and bit big with my skinny jeans…and boots…
8. Blazers…love them.
