I’m trying to get back in the groove it’s been a crazy couple of months, but I told myself yesterday that it’s time to get back to real life! Time to try to make the effort to wear something presentable at least a couple times a week….
And you’re probably excited that it’s garage sale season again, so I can buy people’s discarded clothes and convince myself they might still be fashionable – here we go….
You know it’s going to be a good outfit when my mom sees me and says “what in the world are you wearing?!?!” I got this sweater/dress/tunic shirt thing for $1 at a garage sale. It was comfy and I like it, so even if you think it’s awful I will probably keep it.
The shoes are a result of a personal shopper. Don’t your friends all know what you’re looking for – like I know to keep my eye out for certain things that certain people want from garage sales. I was “running” in a race Saturday so I missed all the garage sales but a friend knew I was on the lookout for yellow shoes and snagged them for me – score! My kind of shopping – they just appeared at my doorstep. Well worth the $2 – they’re about a half size too big, but who cares!
Next up, I know “color blocking” is all the rage, so I tried color blocking with accessories – turquoise hair clip, orange earrings, yellow shirt – I’m not sure I love it, but I gave it a go, so points for effort.
And lastly this week, the outfit I wore on my second TV segment. Last month I agonized over my outfit, planned it out perfectly, etc. This time I just threw something on – I just knew it needed to be a v-neck because the craft I was showing on air was to make glass tile pendants so I needed to wear mine. Anyways, the outfit was alright, but nothing wow. The cardigan has white sequins on it so it’s a little more “fun” and a little less frumpy in real life…and I wore the shoes no one but me likes, but you couldn’t see them so it didn’t matter….
So, let’s hear it – – thoughts on any of the outfits?? Different ways I should try to accessorize?? I’m all about implementing your suggestions!!
