Posted for What I Wore Wednesday at The Pleated Poppy.
Ok. This is a post that takes place on Wednesday. It is not literally what I wore on Wednesday. But a Wednesday outfit might be included. This week, it's not.
Is everyone with me? BellaMomma?
Ok- so I hardly consider myself stylish. But there was a time when I was fearless with my wardrobe. College. During my time in Colorado Springs at the University of Colorado I headed to class in homemade denim skirts (from old men's Levi's) and vintage leather jackets and even hats. Oh, and boots of course. I thrifted for clothes like a madwoman and was totally drawn to the vintage stuff. And I wore it.
Then I graduated and moved back to Virginia.
Got a job.
Bought lots of black pants.
Then I started blogging. And I quickly noticed all the fabulous women wearing fabulous things. Things that tugged at my heart strings. They had style. They had boots. They mixed black and brown. I know.
It was me. It was the old me.
I came out of my fashion closet. Or rather, I'm coming out. And that pun was totally intended.
This outfit makes me smile.
I mixed brown and black.
I found the perfect boots and I will share that journey with you soon.
I mixed a patterned sweater with a textured shirt. I know.
Sweater- Target. You've probably seen this sweater all over the place. It has really cool white button like thingies sewn on the front and washes really well. Jeans- Ross. And it goes without saying that they have stretch in them. ALL jeans should have a little give...and take.
And now we have the boots with a fun Summer dress. You go girl.
And more free shoes. With twinkles and shiny things.
Free. I had another $10 giftcard for Famous Footwear and you guessed it these were on sale for $10. Now get this. These are Steve Madden and were orginally $49.99. Um- what? (If I could insert that Scooby Doo sound here I totally would.)
I think $4.99 is too much to pay for flops. Some poor soul paid $50 for flops. If that person was you, I'm sorry. But you really should get some help. I'm praying for you. And I'm hoping you find an Old Navy- 2/$5.
I'm back. All it took was a mirror and some not so great self-portraits. Oh- and those boots. And I've got my groove back.
