So I needed a break from a particular project yesterday and ended up shopping for 3 hours … 3 hours was a little more than I was going for but I found some good finds.
Let’s start with my favorite piece that didn’t fit – the neon shirt. I SO wanted this to fit!!! I have been obsessed with neons and neutrals and this is SUCH a cute shirt!
Baltimore Design Group which I think is a Chadwick’s line.
Next up the black with tiny polka dot golf shorts. They’re a little higher waisted than I like so I’m debating whether these will go to consignment or not. I also don’t wear a lot of shorts. :/
Next up, the green skirt and the navy gap shirt. I have a picture of the skirt on me but I look like a watermelon because I was trying everything on with the hot pink tank. Which reminds me – the reason I put the clothes on the mannequin today was because my allergies are acting up and the scented detergent on them was bothering me.
Next up I have the Merona pink knit dress. Basic but something I can dress up or down. It will look better with a cardigan and some jewelry I think.
While I’m on a roll with pink, I’ll go ahead and show you the Gap Body sweater hoodie. A little out of season but in good condition and I didn’t want to pass it up.
And then the Talbot’s linen crop pants in mint. They’re a mint color that’s also hard to get a good photograph of but they were new with tags and a nice find. They have a bow tie that I’m thinking about converting to a D ring belt because I think the bow is a bit awkward looking on me. I’m also not a huge fan of cropped pants and typically try to avoid them but I kinda liked these a little too much to pass.
A couple more that I’m selling because they’re too small: BB Jeans blue tunic with embroidered detail, Ann Taylor tunic, Talbots pink skirt (new with tags again.)
And then a few more I’m keeping: Tommy Hilfiger black button up blouse with tiny polka dots (see a theme?), Express light flowy tank with black and white flowers, and The Limited short sleeve with gray stripe blouse.
And then the Talbots black and white skirt
And a couple more shirts – I can’t remember the brands at the moment but they’re both super soft and in great condition:
So yeah … about $50 worth – quite a nice haul for $50
(though I think they miscounted and my total ended up being $41.34 oops!) Adds a lot more variety to my wardrobe.
And one more thing, not purchased yesterday but about a week ago, the ties we thrifted for Tim.
$1.50 each plus $3.50 drycleaning (just gotta clean the thifted items.)
These were Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, Club Room, Gap and DKNY!
I’m thinking about trying to take more photos of the outfits we’re putting together for Tim. Any interest in guy’s outfits posted here too?
Over on Pinterest I noticed that I had pinned 4 different outfits involving denim shirts in the last few days so I decided to look for a few more and post what I’m liking about each outfit. Most of the denim shirts I’ve liked have been a lighter shade instead of a deep navy. Take a look and see if you see the pattern to what I like.
There seem to be about 3 ways I really like a denim shirt:
worn with a white bottom; white jeans, shorts or a flowy white skirt
worn with a bright bottom like coral or yellow
worn with a dress and belted
Tell me, have you ever worn a denim shirt that looked good? I haven’t but I’m thinking about trying one of these looks.
