Mustard, Purple, and Gray

I wasn't sure how these three colors would go together, but I think they work! I got several compliments on the ensemble, so if they don't work then other people obviously can't tell, so I can wear them! LOL! It was really simple and comfortable, and I got to wear some new shoes that I got for $5 at Target the other day! I love my gray peep-toes, but they always get snow in them, so these gray shoes were my new, cheap solution!!

Oh, and I got tons of compliments on my tights. How fun! Opaque tights really are in this season!

From Fashion Frenzy
I wanted to wear jeans and a t-shirt, but had a few MK deliveries to make, so wanted to wear a skirt. This is what I settled on, plus some short black boots. It was comfy and fun!

I am not entirely sure what this look is, but it kind of reminds me of those preppy kids who take horseback riding lessons. Not sure why, but I think it's the vest. And the skinny jeans. And maybe the boots. Who knows. Anywho, this is what I wore the other day.

Skinny Jeans

Once upon a time I swore off skinny jeans. At Ross the other day I found a pair for $5. I bought them. I wanted to be able to wear these boots with jeans tucked into them, but the only way I could was with skinny jeans. Lo and behold, I think I like them.
From Fashion Frenzy
They're not nearly as scary as I thought they would be. I will admit that they sit lower than I am comfortable with, so they require a longer shirt, but I can work with that.

Purple and Brown

Again with the "original" titles. This outfit was different for me, and I actually liked it, except that it was super static clingy! I even wore a slip and it didn't seem to help my skirt from sticking to my legs and behind. Not the best look. But other than that I liked it!
From Fashion Frenzy
It was a pretty chilly day, so I wore a cardi-shrug over top, like so...

Ruffly Gray

From Fashion Frenzy
I know, my post titles are less than original. But really, it is as much as I can do just to get things posted! Someday I will write witty things about my cute ensembles, but today is not that day. I will, however, point out that I have awesome gray ruffled shoes that go with my awesome gray ruffled scarf. 'Nuff said.

Wide Belt...

... emphasis on WIDE.
From Fashion Frenzy
I thought I'd give the low slung belt look a try, but after looking at the pictures, I can't say it is a good look. It just makes my hips look wide. Too bad I didn't look at these pictures sooner than today, because this is a look I wore a couple days ago. Ooops. Oh well. You live and learn!

Jeans + Dress = ?

From Fashion Frenzy
Not sure how I feel about the jeans under a dress look, but I keep seeing people do it, so I gave it a try. Still not sure. Hmm.....

I DO like the multi bracelet look and the hair and jewelry accessories that went with this, though!

Another casual Saturday look. Berry sweater, brown vest, brown scarf, jeans.... and bare feet that you can't see!! LOL!

No Sew Scarf...

From Fashion Frenzy
I saw a tutorial on Pinterest for how to make a scarf out of an old Tshirt, so I gave it a try. Super easy... super fun! I actually made it from a sleeveless shirt I have had and loved, but had a stain on the front so I never wore it. Now I can wear it again! (as a scarf...)

Early Morning Light...

Kind of hard to see in this picture, but it was still early morning light when I took it.

I thought the tights were black when I pulled them out, but when I pulled them on they have flowers up the sides! Fun!

And a close up of my face (and the dirty spot on the mirror that looks like I have a dirty chin!)

And your evening look...

Black is back!

Today's look is brought to you by the color black! I was in a hurry this morning, so I pulled out this shirt combo I've had hanging in my closet for weeks. Black and gray halter top, sheer ruffled shirt over top, black pinstripe pants, blingy grey metallic belt, shiny disco ball shoes, and blingy jewelry! It's fun! I actually got a lot of compliments on my outfit at church today, too, which means I should probably wear it again. 

Oh, and when I came downstairs this morning, Leif told me my hair looks good like this. He N.E.V.E.R. compliments me on my hair. It was quick hair, too! A little volumizing powder and a french braid. Who knew?

It's not the best picture in the world, but it was taken at like 5:00 in the morning the day we left for Tacoma. PanAM Blue dress, gray sweater, tights, and cami, and mustard accents.

Same skirt, different tune...

I love my grey skirt. Here it is paired with a grey cami, blue sweater shirt, and grey ruffled T-straps.

Grey and Teal

From Instant Upload
Today's look... is brought to you by my favorite grey skirt. I love it! Comfy, cute, and professional... all a must in my line of work!! I wore a fairly plain teal tee with it, a cropped sweater, black knee-high boots, and blingy belt, necklace, and earrings! Oh, and my side bun with a teal leather flower clip. 

The side bun is my new pony tail. It's what I wear when I don't have time to do my hair. SO much cuter than the pony, though.

You think I've been going naked, but I haven't...

I just keep forgetting to take pictures of what I'm wearing. Mostly because I want to take the picture after I put my shoes on, but I'm usually downstairs by the time that happens. I'll have to work on that. In the meantime, here's my take on one of my favorite outfits from pinterest lately...
I love the put together look of this ensemble!! Here's my version...

Yellow belt again...

I swear I am getting a little obsessed with the yellow belt. It might be time to give it a break. LOL!! Does anyone else get something new and then love it to pieces??
From Instant Upload
The red cowl is also new, and fun! I knew that I needed a red scarf, but when I saw this I decided to give it a try instead of a traditional scarf. It was warm and fun and didn't try to unravel on me. Woohoo! And it dresses up a plain grey long-sleeve tee perfectly! I also tried putting a flower on my belt for the first time (as per my Pinterest inspiration this week!) and I like it! Add some argyle tights and short boots and you've got the look!

Go to shoes

What are your go-to shoes? For most of the summer and fall, these are the ones I reach for most of the time! I love them!

Rockin' the Navy and Mustard

From Instant Upload
Today I'm rockin' the navy and mustard and I LOVE IT! How fun! It's also fun because a majority of my outfit is new, and new clothes are always fun. =D And I finally have something my yellow purse cover coordinates with!

Again with the side bun...

Side bun...

Thursday I went for a side bun again and like how it turned out!!
From Instant Upload
I know I don't usually start with my hair, but the red flower was just too fun to gloss over!! The rest of the outfit included punches of red, too, with a red belt and red shoes... But the side bun was my favorite part of this ensemble!!

Going Shopping...

... regular shopping, that is! I had some free time yesterday, so I headed to Ross to see if I could find some mustard yellow items for my closet. While I was there, I tried on a few things!! I tried on this skirt and little sweater, with the cami I was wearing...
From Instant Upload
Then I tried on a poncho.
From Instant Upload
And then with a belt...
From Instant Upload
And then the only mustard yellow item I found in Ross at all. Seems they are terribly devoid of mustard these days. Sad.
From Instant Upload
And finally, I tried on a navy top.
From Instant Upload
Sooo.... what did I come home with? Any guesses? Well, here's what I decided....

*The skirt was cute, comfortable, and flattering. And I need a gray skirt that's not knit. Into the basket.
*The short teal sweater was adorable. 'nuff said. Into the basket! (Oh, did I mention it was less than $5?)
*The poncho, even with a belt, just didn't do anything for me. Back on the rack...
*The mustard, which I specifically went in search of, should be relegated to accent colors. Maybe a belt, or a scarf (both of which Target had, by the way... score!), but not as a shirt. Hello sunshine! Back on the rack...
*The blue top was a winner. I like navy, and this (actually, even this exact outfit!) I love. Huzzah!

So I came home with 3 of the 5 items I tried on, and they are items which complement my existing wardrobe, my body, my general ensemblage, and lifestyle.

I broke my rule...

I broke my rule of only getting dressed once and changed clothes to go out with Leif on Wednesday night. He usually appreciates it when I'm wearing "walking" shoes instead of heels, so here's what I threw on...

From Instant Upload
Kind of fun to wear a hat on a not-necessarily-bad-hair day!
