Did you miss me and What I Wore Wednesday last week?? Well, don’t worry, here I am with yet another pressing question for you – – but first, check out my new rainboots:
Yes, I made a whole outfit based off the boots. I will be headed to youth Girl’s Camp and to Cub Scout Day Camp (I must enjoy torture!) and I heard rumors that it’s always a muddy mess and to bring rain boots. What?!? I didn’t have rainboots – – perfect reason to splurge. I wandered Walmart and Target and grabbed some plain ones for $22, thinking I could embellish them, but I didn’t love them. Then I browsed online and found some I loved on clearance at Target.com – of course, not in my size. But I grabbed these even though I thought they were semi-ugly – cause they were only $7 and they came in my size. And in person, turns out I love them – score!
Anyways, you can see them in a video ON THIS POST – – and speaking of that, can you please vote for me to Win a Ticket To SNAP – just click the star under #22 – it’ll just take a second – – thanks!
Moving on, another outfit I thought was pretty good. During these past few months I’ve really learned about layering and mixing colors through layering. I am a clean fashion slate when it comes to summer – without layering, what do you do!?!? I know my capris are kind of mom-ish, but they sure are comfy….
Now, for the call on your opinions today – – I bought a cute dress at a garage sale for $2, but it’s too short and I don’t do the sleeveless thing – can I still wear it? I bought some capri leggings at target to go with it. First I wore it with a short-sleeved cardigan:
But I didn’t know – too much black? should it be a white cardigan? or colored?
So then I wore it with a black shirt under it with nothing over it – so you could see the ruffle on the neckline. I added a skinny belt for shape (someone the other week commented on how sashes are out, belts are in – good to know!). Oh, and I’m holding my camera bag that I splurged on a little while ago – I still love it and take it everywhere.
I wasn’t sure about this look either – it’s definitely a little out of my comfort zone.
So I wore this second look to a birthday party for my grandpa. I look over and see my cousin’s girlfriend, and she’s rockin’ the dress-with-leggings look too – of course a picture was needed (I’m sure she thinks that was weird – oh well!). I feel like it’s a “who wore it best”, and I’m thinking it’s her…. do I need longer leggings? Maybe mine is all-around too wild?
Alright, let’s hear it – – ideas on what to do with summer dresses?? Leggings – Go with it? Get rid of it? This kind of reminds me of when I kicked off my WIWW feature with that controversial dress with jeans….
