I Tried It
July 26, 2011

Some of the blogs I follow are fashion blogs of awesome clothing remixers like Kendi.  They put together the strangest combinations of styles and colors and ever time I read their blog I think, hmm, I don’t think I would have put that together, but I like it.  That was my thought process Sunday morning when I went to my closet to get dressed.  I took one of my favorite shirts and one of my favorite skirts and while the color in the top didn’t exist in the skirt I wore it together and I think it turned out kind of fun! I don’t think it’s a total stunner, but at least I tried it and now I’m in the mind set of trying to become a little more outside the box.  How about you?  Are you a remixer and if so what are some of your favorite color combinations…I need some inspiration!

Skirt: old Limited, Top: Limited, Earrings: Gifted, Necklace: Stella and Dot, Belt: LOFT, Shoes: Melissa from Bella.

The hubs and I need to seriously work on our photo locations, but at least I’m finally posting pictures right?

Monochrome
July 23, 2011

I’m weird. Ok now that we got that out there I can tell you about this outfit. If I’m ever going to be seen in front of people I try to buy a new piece of clothing to wear. It eases my mind about the day and it’s just one less thing to worry about. I lead worship at church once a month and even for this I like to get something new, I usually try to spend $10 or less and I got this new top at the Limited sale for $5. I paired it with a Loft belt and cardigan. It turns out if was the first time I wore either of those items too. Not sure if it worked, but it was kind of a monochromatic look. What are your thoughts, are you a lover of tone on tone clothing?

Date Night
July 15, 2011

I love date night.  I am blessed to have a job where I get off at 1:30 on Fridays so I have time to come home, shower, paint my toes, shave my legs, do my makeup and style my hair.  All things I pretty much don’t have time for the rest of the week.  We had plans to got to a recommended restaurant, but when we called to make a reservation they said we couldn’t and it would be over an hour wait so we decided to go to Reales a locally owned Italian restaurant, it was DELICIOUS.  Definitely went over on calories today, but once a week is acceptable and it was worth it!  Here is what I wore… the dress is pretty short, but I figured since I was out with my sweetie it was acceptable!

P.S. I apologize for no Thursday latelies yesterday.  There are a lot of reasons I didn’t post, but I promise I’ll have a video next week that  you can see my new beautiful woodwork.
