Conversation #141: Yes, I am putting off studying right now

However, I have done pretty good so far with the studying (I hope anyway) so I decided I didn't want to go for forever without posting anything.  Plus, Murphy's Law, I had been feeling uninspired with blogging topics and once I don't really have time I realized that I had a lot I wanted to share.  My blog (old and new) have gone through many transformations, and the latest was blogging about what I wear.  I have no idea why.  I started randomly reading fashion blogs and got inspired and it seemed fun.  However, I don't have the time or camera or style to really be a fashion blogger  (or the money, except that there is a great group of gals who share their thrifty finds which is awesome!)  So I'll probably still post outfits sometimes just because it is fun for me and helps me stretch my current wardrobe because one thing I have learned is that I don't need any more clothes or anything.  I know I will still probably buy some items, but I am trying to be much more responsible and aware of what I spend my fun money on this year.  I'll keep y'all posted on this journey.  My plan is to really get back into sewing and stretch my skills.  I have a bad habit of not doing something if I think I won't be perfect at it, and that is just silly because how will I get better if I don't try?!

I have also been on a really great spiritual journey, and I plan to start sharing about that tomorrow.  God has been revealing so much to me, and I am just so excited about it.

Okay, only because I actually really like my outfit today, I am going to share it.  Like I said, there will still be that aspect, but just on a normal girl/blog level.  I love finding nice clothing and fashions on a budget so that is definitely my perspective on this blog.

This outfit was inspired by a J.Crew catalog from a while ago now.  I loved the idea of a button down layered under a suit dress, but didn't own one and J.Crew suiting pieces are rarely ever in my price range.  Anywho, I found this Gap dress on ebay a while back, and decided it was perfect.  I love it, and it was a great price!


Outfit breakdown:
Dress, Gap via ebay, $16
Blouse, Lands' End Canvas, $13
Necklace, local store in my hometown, $4
Grey suede pumps, Shoe Carnival, $25 or $30 (can't remember for sure) - had for about 4 years now

I really hope y'all will come back tomorrow so I can share what is going on in my life with you!
