I’ve had this flannel shirt for a while now. I bought it a few years ago, but then stored it away with all my winter clothes, which don’t get worn much in Florida. So when the flannel trend started again, I frantically looked for this shirt, hoping that I hadn’t thrown it out. Luckily for me, I’m a hoarder and found this shirt in a bag underneath my bed, which I only found because the boyfriend and I recently moved. The shirt is a little large on me, but I knew I could make some sort of cute outfit and this is what I came up with. Just hand me an axe and I’m ready to chop some lumber, just hang on a sec while I take off my 5 in heels.
“When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I’m feeling sad… I simply remember my favorite things…. (like stripes, neon and vintage inspired necklaces) and then I don’t feeeeeeeel sooooo bad.” I told you yesterday how much I love this time of year. I also love musicals and I’m pretty pumped about “The Sound of Music” TV special with Carrie Underwood. “The hillllllls are alive….”
I’m sorry, I’ll stop. But all those promos have me singing like a fool. I apologize for my nerdy-ness. Did I ever mention I was in chorus in high school? (I’m just racking up the cool points right now.)
Anyway… I’m still on a shopping hiatus, but I did have a minor slip up and bought a cute “T” midi-ring. It was only $8 and it’s really freaking cute. It’s hard teaching an old dog new tricks, not that I’m calling myself a dog… or maybe I am… I don’t know, but my hiatus is back on and I’m trying to be creative. Hope you’re enjoying!
I’m pretty sure yesterday’s post about my lack of outfit creativity, due to an awful shopping hiatus, helped the juices start flowing again. Today’s inspiration… CHRISTMAS!! Christmas time is my absolute favorite time of the year. I love the decorations, the music, the food, Christmas trees, family, friends… I could go on for days! So I figured why not dress like a Christmas decoration? ‘Tis the season to look like Santa’s helper!
So I’m currently on a shopping hiatus. I’ve given up my favorite sport in lieu of saving money and trying to afford a move and Christmas all at once. But, I am coming to the conclusion that with nothing new in my closet for almost a month now I am slowly losing my will to want to get dressed. Unfortunately my penguin PJs get funny stares when I wear them out in public and my work prefers I wear real pants, or a skirt or anything without a draw-string. So I am still wearing real clothes, against my will I may add, but they are lame.
Today I’m wearing another gray sweater with some black jeans. Ohhh… riveting. So right now, that’s pretty much the extent of my fashion. (I didn’t want to bore you with the pics.) I usually pride myself on making something cute out nothing, but it’s currently not happening. So my friends I ask you to bear with me. I’m going to try to continue to be creative wearing things I already own, but I certainly don’t have to be happy about it.
So until next time I’ll leave you with a picture of my adorable yellow snake-skin flats. (I didn’t say my entire outfit was lame. )
This is about as rocker-ish as I get… a concert tee, my army jacket and these fab ankle boots. I like when outfits make me feel a certain type of way. Today’s outfit is a “don’t f*$# with me” kinda outfit, not that people tend to do that often, but if they were thinking it, they know better!
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!!! I’m thankful for lipstick, shoes, purses and YOU!!!
