Dressing in cute clothes is not always something that I have done. I love cute and funky stuff and well sometimes, in days past, I have worried what others thought about what I wore. I tried to fit in and wear what all the other moms were wearing, but it never felt right. A few years ago I threw caution to the wind and embraced “my style.” Last year I decided to challenge myself and only wear dresses or skirt (you may remember my year without pants)
Thanks to Lisa who directed me to Lindsey and What I Wore Wednesday, I decided to share with you my style. I am also sharing where I get the stuff from, because 90% of my wardrobe is 2nd hand. Most days I pay more for my under garments than I do for my whole outfit. I hope you have as much fun learning about me and what I love as I do putting my outfits together. And please, do play along.
I had my daughter straighten my hair today, I think its fun!

I love this dress, I wore it a lot in the summer and it is heavy enough to transition into fall as well.
Dress is from Target, bought new at Goodwill for 5.99
Cami is from ModBod when they were having some super sale at Costco years ago
Cardigan is from Target where I scored it off the clearance rack for 4.97
Belt is from New York & Company, its leather and I got it at Goodwill for 3.00
Necklace is a gift from a friend
Moccasins are by Minnetonka and I got them off Zappos (most of my shoes are new because they are rather large and hard to find newer shoes 2nd hand)

I have been dreaming of wearing these boots all summer long!!
Shirt length dress is from Forever 21 off the clearance rack for $6
Belt came with the dress
Skinny Jeans Sweetheart Skinny jeans from Old Navy. I did splurge because I was ill equipped for fall weather last week in NY state and paid 22.50 for them, but since I don’t typically wear jeans because I can’t find any to fit and these do….well it’s a good investment.
Necklace is much longer but shortened in the back with a rubber band and I scored it a Goodwill for $2
Boots are from Target, they are all leather and I got them on Clearance last January for $9
Total cost of outfit without shoes $30.50. With shoes 39.50
