I had some time yesterday so I put together a few “festive looks”. Let’s talk about these looks shall we?
First look: This tulle skirt/t-shirt situation looked a lot better in my mind. As I was snapping pictures, I realized this is not how I am going to wear this skirt. I love the skirt and I like the t-shirt (this t-shirt is better as a nightshirt) but never will the two be paired together again. I plan to wear the skirt as a shirt. This party look I will be posting momentarily…(main reason why this post is titled Volume 1)
Skirt: Akira Shirt: Target
Second Look: Is a Walmart special. Ummm, does this make me the people of Walmart? Anyway, I tend to purchase a lot of my t-shirts from places like Walmart and Target because you can get them at such an affordable rate. Not to mention, the mens’ department has the best selection of rocker t-shirts.
The boots are Steve Madden and I purchased them when they were 30% off. Never be afraid of bright neon yellow boots. Oh, I have a few ideas of how I intend to wear them. Stay tuned.
Here lately I have been a little bit more motivated in taking my own photos for my blog. I guess it’s like a challenge that I feel I must overcome.
Each time I go to a site to take photos, I think to myself “Will this post be inspirational to someone?” and I pray to God for help. Him & I, we are like a team. 🙂
Skirt: Forever 21
My soul went into a happy dance when I found out about this collaboration. Let me just give you some history as to why.
I have been watching the price of these boots for a while now and when I worked at Nordstrom (this past Christmas season), I did all kinds of mathematical equations in my head which included my 20% discount on how I could afford such a purchase for some rain boots.
Well, the wait is ova!!!! From what I hear, these “wellies” that originally range from $140 – $165/pair will now be a ridiculously affordable $40.
I am sending all kinds of positive vibrations towards this collabo’s way. The entire collection, which includes men, women and children will be available April 14th.
Since November is the beginning of all the fabulous holidays and 2 of my sons have birthdays this month, I decided to focus on “Family”.
My absolute favorite store when purchasing clothes for my boys is “Target”.
For my youngest, I typically try to select clothes that are comfortable, wrinkle-free and easy to wash……..enter sweatshirts and sweatpants.
These items are super cheap $5.50/pair and you can coordinate them with just about anything…..sweat pants and denim jackets, sweat pants and plaid shirts, sweat pants and camo (in my Forrest Gump voice).
