Buy versatile pieces

Hello Friends!

Happy Monday!

I read something online that emphasized having a positive attitude, so I’m trying to pass that along. I didn’t drive in snow this morning and it’s been a somewhat sunny day so that is wonderful. I hope your day is going well too!

I thought I would share my thoughts about buying versatile items; like the pants I’m wearing now for example. I purchased these pants at Loft last year, maybe in April? They were in the clearance section for a good deal and I fell in love with the floral and gorgeous blue background.

Last summer I wore with a bright melon top but they’ve really got my love over the winter. I’ve wore them with a tan stripe top, gray sweater (with burgundy jacket), bright pink sweater, and pink stripe top. They really flatter many different things because there are so many colors/tones in the pattern. They’re one of my funnest most favorite print!

I recommend, when you’re contemplating buying an item of clothing or shoes/jewelry; think to yourself, how many things can I combine with this? If there are more than two combinations, I think that’s a great buy! Sometimes you might want to buy something for a special occasion and that is normal, but I want my clothes/accessories/shoes to go with many different things. It’s like the ABC’s, there are only 26 letters but all those combine for dictionaries full of words! I hope I can make that many combinations with my clothes #clothesgoals right??

Happy Monday ya’ll! 🙂

Excited Pink

Hello Friends!

I am finally feeling a bit better! Yay! I seriously have to consider getting the flu shot this coming fall, that hit me real bad…hope it doesn’t ever happen again!

I got to wear the pretty red/pink sweater that I got from Target awhile ago! I originally got this sweater to wear with a floral black/pink/red skirt but I have to wear it with other things right?? An item of clothing needs to be flexible to work in many different ensembles! I love this sweater because it striped, combines hot red/pink, and has some real pretty ruffles on the shoulder which makes it unique.

So I had to wear it today, but wanted to use some creativity in putting an outfit together…(black pants would be too simple right??) So I paired with my pink Express fitted jeans, my black OTK suede boots, and then in a moment of impulsivity grabbed my Desuigal bag (pink, red, camo, black-remember I snagged it at the Dallas airport in a frenzied moment between flights?? I felt so accomplished to find something so darling at such a random time and 40% off)-Score!

I have so much fun wearing something that’s a little out of the ordinary and it helps to make up for my still constant headache….(I’m sure it will eventually go away)…

Later today after work I got my hair done courtesy of my talented niece Bronwyn at Suggestions Salon in Orem Utah. While waiting for the dye to cure (?) I leafed through some magazines and saw some real fun and creative (styles) to combine for some interesting outfits. I love discovering new inspiration for clothes, it’s just really fun and then my brain starts whirring through all my clothes trying to figure out new creations to showcase my personality. Don’t you think each of our own fashion choices should give a clue to our personality? No matter a person’s age, I think yes is the correct answer! After a nice wash and scalp massage (maybe this is key to de-stress?), I realized my headache was gone, so that is such a blessing that I don’t even have a headache anymore or wobegone roots! What a great way to end my day! Have a happy Tuesday night/hump day tomorrow! We are halfway through the week!! (I added a link to this gorgeous sweater)!

Fashion and Health? (Not the same unfortunately)

Hello friends,

So I’m still not feeling well and had this idea that it might be good to get out and get some fresh air…I thought maybe the sunshine and fresh air would help me feel better as laying on a couch has NOT LOL..

So I drove to Target which usually has an invigorating effect (I thought walking around would give me some energy, seriously this is the worse flu I have ever experienced-my head and eye socket still hurt-probably TMI). Even though my plan did not help, I found some wonderful items at Target! and quickly came home to lay back down (of course).

I found a darling pair of black/white checked flats with bows that were on clearance, which will go so cute with this green, black/white floral patterned dress. I also tried on a long lavender cardigan (so spring) and a striped pink button up shirt and some pearl studded jeans (also on clearance). I found some great fashion deals, tried out my fresh air experiment, and got some sunshine; although still feel poorly. (Back at home, watching Sherlock Holmes-Robert Downey Jr/Jude Law style-gotta love Guy Ritchie).

I recommend each of you run to Target, even if you feel ill. They have some great deals, check out the clearance aisles in shoes and clothes!
