I decided that either bootcuts were maaaaaaybe coming back? Or I was going to bring them back. So I bought these (they’re whatever bootcut jeans they sell at American Eagle.). I feel like they’re a little too light and a little too short though, I liked this outfit when I was wearing it, but in pictures I think these look better suited to being weekend jeans. I wore them with my beloved Target knit blazer and a Alice Printed Top I just got on super sale from Banana Republic (doesn’t show up online but you could probably find it in the store), but beware I couldn’t figure out how to not show my bra straps while wearing it and I ended up having to wear a strapless bra. To school pickup. The necklace is from Ebay, I think I just searched “triple strand coral necklace” till I found one I liked. I reaaaaaaally love it.
I generally don’t buy short sleeved sweaters because I feel like if it’s hot enough to wear short sleeves, you’re not going to want to wear a sweater, and if it’s cold enough to wear a sweater, you’re not going to want short sleeves. Also, I never buy cable knits because I think they’re unflattering on me when they STREEEEEEEEETCH over my boobs. However, I loved this sweater (from the BR outlet) the minute I put it on, and I could think of about 80 outfits I could make with it, and it was $20. Sold! I’m going to try to think of it as more of a blouse than a sweater. Like I could wear it under my denim jacket. Worn with the Target pencil skirt everyone has (seriously, they make a shockingly great pencil skirt at Target, no idea if this is one is still available, but they have a cute floral one right now), and my new favorite spike necklace from Forever 21. I felt like I needed a teeny bit of edginess to take the fuddy out of this outfit and the shoes and the necklace worked for that. Seriously, I LOOOOOVE this necklace.
One of my favorite dresses (old, from BR outlet) and I’m so excited I figured out yet another way to wear it. I LOVED this outfit. Favorite outfit of the week. Plus I think I can totally wear it in the winter with leggings and boots.
Normally boyfriend cardigans are hard for me because they always look too long, but somehow this worked. I really love this sweater, actually. Annoying I can’t find the color I have online, but it’s this sweater from Loft, it’s a nice olive green with metal edged buttons, if you want to dig around in the store for it.
Gold belt is from Target, I think they still make it. Gold tassel necklace is my new favorite thing ever, from Forever 21. Basically every time I go in the mall I go in there and look through the jewelry and I always find something and it’s usually in the $8 range and then I don’t have to pay shipping or try on any clothes in the wretched place. I almost ordered a Kendra Scott tassel necklace and while it was lovely, I just couldn’t bring myself to pay $70 for it. I love her earrings but earrings always hurt my ears so I might just have to continue to lust from afar. I also wasn’t even sure I would wear a tassel necklace so $8 seemed like a good way to find out, but fyi I have worn it every day since I got it and it just adds that little something extra I am always trying for and usually not achieving. I LOOOOVE it.
I really just wanted to wear my new booties and show you my birthday present, the very super gorgeous MAB from Rebecca Minkoff. I looooooooooooooooooooooove it. I have no idea where to buy it if you want one, I bought mine at Saks and I have heard rumors of flash sales but I can’t find the full size version (which is what I have) online. You can find the Mini MAB very easily but I loathe small purses and crossbody purses so I stayed away from that one. (The large MAB technically has a crossbody strap but I folded it in half before attaching it to the bag and now it’s a shoulder strap.)
Vince Camuto booties, they have GLITTER on the back half. They give me the special feelings. Kohls jacket, Gap sweater, Loft crops, Forever 21 necklace as we have already discussed.
I really wanted a white v neck tee that I could wear with maxi skirts, so I thought I’d take a chance on that vintage tee from Old Navy that everyone has such a boner for on fashion blogs. It works! It was $7. It’s maybe not the be all and end all of tees and I don’t really think they’re quite as great looking with jeans or whatever as everyone else thinks, but it’s totally fine for this purpose. And then I spilled foundation on it and had throw a scarf on top of it instead of wearing it with my tassel necklace. Again.
(Gap skirt, Target sandals you can’t see, Homemade scarf by MOI and my MIL, Cost Plus earrings, Old Navy Vintage tee.)
I’m trying to go through my closet and figure out what stuff I definitely won’t be able to wear this winter and wear those things at least one more time. Technically I guess I could wear this skirt in the winter with a sweater and leggings but I think that would be…odd. Time to pack it up. SOB.
