I’m very much a jeans girl. The darker, the better (but not black, black shows cat hair too much.) Deep deep navy, no distressing. HOWEVER when I’ve been wearing the same jeans for awhile they do in fact become somewhat faded which is the case with what I had on today. These are actually the lightest blue blue jeans that I own.
What I wore in these photos (this is really all over the place):
Top: Turquoise Shirt / Blouse / Tank from TJmaxx picked up last fall
Jeans: Walmart (ugh – yes, Walmart) from a few years ago
Shoes: Sandals / Flip Flops in red and tan with silver and crystal embellishment from a boutique in Bowling Green KY
Shrug / short sleeved jacket: Target from a couple of years ago
Necklace: long silver necklace from Chicos (really long ago)
Earrings: basic silver round hoops with a flattened edge from Talbots (also long ago … but I’m not sure how long because I have two pairs of the exact same earring bought at different times.)
Toenail polish: Zoya “Lo” … I need to repaint my fingernails.
I’ve been meaning to share more outfits of the day like this but just haven’t gotten around to it. I do however wear jeans a lot and I do re-wear a lot of the same outfits which means that sometimes what I wore just is not that interesting … or I think it wouldn’t be. We’ll see if I can make this more of a habit. Though don’t worry, I will probably not be posting every single day. You can see a pattern in the colors I tend to like photographing though. Lots of turquoise and teals and aqua… I swear I have other color shirts in my closet!
AND I’m sorry, these last couple of days I’ve been feeling rather prolific. I promise I will not keep this double posting nonsense up (I’m going to post something about coral and yellow jeans in a bit.)
Well it’s better than a photo from a few months ago this time. I’m so happy with my new palm tree and I brought in one of my granny’s chairs from the garage not expecting it to look so good. I’m loving the whole new arrangement though.
Earrings: Liz Claiborne silver oval hoops – Christmas gift
(probably about $18)
Necklace: Kmart clearance $1.50
Cardigan: Ann Taylor – gift
(Mom bought for me while we were in Vegas at the Outlet mall so $10? I think my teal one was the $30 Cardigan)
Dress: No idea, swapped some makeup for it so mostly free.
Scarf: vintage (either my mom’s or granny’s, not sure)
Flip Flops: Kohl’s clearance $2 or under last summer
(they’re bronze and I probably should have worn dressier shoes)
I really like this dress and there are a few things you can’t tell about it in this photo:
it’s a nice chocolate brown
it has a brown crocheted section across the chest area which is a nice bit of detail without calling too much attention to that area
it’s a simple cotton dress and feels like wearing a big comfy t-shirt
it has an elastic empire waist
it’s a sort of cross between a sleeveless and capped sleeve … I don’t really know how to describe it.
In an effort to get the slippery scarf to stay in one place I actually tied it around the button cardigan which I don’t know that I would do again. It worked really well in regard to keeping the scarf in place and centered but I felt like it has the potential to wear out the cardigan faster or lose the button or misshape the button hole.
Anyone have any scarf belt tricks? I’m thinking about buying some more fun fabrics and making more if I can get that figured out a bit better.
And I’m starting to wonder if I know the price of most of my clothes off of the top of my head like some odd sort of visual memory recall… scary…
FYI – I live in what used to be my grandmother’s house hence the sort of oddness about chairs from the garage and not knowing who the scarf belonged to. I did actually find it here. It took me three months I think to get to the point that I could move in and I’ve been slowly cleaning everything out ever since (my mom is a packrat and stopped helping after I moved in because she doesn’t want to part with any of it.)
