Anyway, I'll do my official update tomorrow, but I decided to start following this outfit inspiration blog (Fab Finds under $50) to keep me on track again with using clothes I already own. I think being an engineer sometimes filters into all aspects of my life because I love structure (that would be even funnier if I were a structural engineer, I'm a nerd, sorry). I found this blog (check it out!) through a chain of other blogs, and I love that she has all of these calendars for inspiration so I can be creative but have some guidance.
Today was Mustard & Navy - I was happy to do to this because I love these two colors together. I opted for the oufit below (please excuse my hair, we had 93% humidity this morning):
Navy Jacket, LOFT, thrifted, $10
Mustard Lace Trim Tank (just peaking out at the top and bottom), Coldwater Creek, $12 (I think)
Khaki pants, Gap, $12
Suede Navy Flats, Lands' End, $10
Mustard & cognac leather tote, Halogen, $48
I realize that $48 isn't cheap, but for a leather tote that is pretty good. I have been a lover of purses since I was born (I have pictures of me with them draped around my neck as a baby/toddler), and I used to go with quantity not quality. Well, over the years I have shifted to spending a bit more on leather bags that will last me for years versus cheap ones for months. It is amazing how many less bags I own, but I love them all.
Also, I realize I will never be a full on fashion blogger. I don't have the time or energy to take awesome pictures, but now that the weather is cooler and my backyard isn't quite as out of control, I will try to take more outside pictures again with better lighting. I just like to use this little space to stretch my creativity with my fashion, and hopefully without spending too much money! I really do have other things I want to blog about these days also, but I forget to take pictures and then that makes for a boring blog post. I'll try to be better about throwing in some other fun things too! Hope everyone is having a good evening, and GO RANGERS!!! (that is the world series for my non sports readers)
