My turn at the outfit posting

Tuesday, June 7, 2011

I really really enjoy looking through personal fashion blogs, and seeing all the cute outfits people put together. It's inspiring, and it's also challenged me to have more fun with getting dressed. I don't know about you, but I tend to have some struggles when it comes to picking out what to wear. Most days I just end up throwing on something comfy since I don't usually have plans, and I'm home all day anyway. But there are days that I do really want to look my best. I want to be well dressed during the days even when I don't have plans, because I want to look purrty for my husband :) I want him to know when he's at work or anywhere else, that he's got one good lookin' wifey at home waiting for him! (haha) But also, being well dressed during the day makes me feel productive.. even if I haven't done much at all! It still makes me feel nice, and I'm ready to go out if something comes up. And this is all why I have decided to blog about my outfits. Now, I've been a little apprehensive about blogging my outfits, wondering if people are going to think, "Ugh, she's so vain!" Showing off is not my goal here folks {like I really have much to show off.. right}. I just think this will be something fun, and it will motivate me and hopefully get me in a habit of dressing nicely and being creative too.. not just throwing something raggedy and comfy on.

Sunday for church:
 Shirt, skirt and belt: thrifted, shoes: from my sister, faux pearl necklace: thrifted. 

When I found this shirt at the thrift store a couple weeks ago I surprised myself when I fell in love with it! I would never have bought something like it before, but I guess my taste is changing and widening in variety.. maybe. I just LOVE the colors in the shirt. And the skirt was one of 3 really nice skirts that I picked up at salvation army for about $4 a piece! Super happy deal for me! :) One of the older ladies at church {who so does not act her age at all} whispered to me as I walked by, "Hey you pretty lady!" She's so cute. I like her. .. and yes, I liked her before she called me "pretty lady." 

Tuesday's Outfit: {that's today!}
 {okay, I have no idea why the photos are turning out so fuzzy. They look nice on my computer files grr..} 
T-shirt, carpi shorts and belt: thrifted, black shirt: either Kmart or Walmart. Flip flops: Walmart, Necklace: Flamingo Toes- I won it from a giveaway!!

It's so nice and sunny out today! Love that! Thought I'd take the camera outside for photos.. I think I'm going to have to figure out why my pictures come out blurry and sometimes they don't.. weird. Could it be because I used the flash outside? 

Oh, here's my hair today. Just a little bun :) 

Can I just add that I do feel really cute today.. and productive too!

Thanks for stopping by!
