Lovin’ this outfit (minus the pain of sporting heels even for a few minutes)! Definitely switched back to flats after the pic.  This top has been patiently waiting in my closet for months, and finally the weather is warm enough to wear it. I really need to practice with my camera and/or times of day to get better shots. Way too much light to show off the gorgeous print….

Stripes and camo…who knew? I got the idea from the May issue of Instyle.

I know that as long as your prints are in the same color family you can mix away, but pairing camo and stripes never occurred to me. I likey! I added the neon belt and necklace for a pop of color. My camo tee actually came from the boys department at Kohls.  You gotta keep your options open, right?!  I have to get better at remembering to get pics of my shoes because my turquoise sandals also added some unexpected color…

Love how the denim moto jacket add a bit of edge to the lace tank and flowy maxi skirt.

Should have gotten a snap of my shoes too. I was wearing a pair of my favorite ankle booties, but this look would work with either flat strappy sandals or wedges.

My first official outfit post! This outfit just screams “Spring!” doesn’t it? I thought the coral stripes and butterflies looked so cool together. Unfortunately, still no heels for awhile… So that means I’ll have to stock up on sweet flats.  Heels might make an appearance from time to time because sometimes they do make an outfit, but it will be for photo ops only! This outfit would have looked cool with my tan ankle wrap wedge sandals too… On a happier note, today I scored a fab pair of A.N.A. deconstructed skinny jeans at jcpenney.com!!! $14 on clearance and I had a $10 reward coupon. How cool is that?

This pretty much sums it up…

I’ve kicked around the idea of starting a fashion blog for quite awhile now.  After some encouragement from my good friend, Nikki, here it is. Of course I decide to dive in when I’m at my most unfashionable…knee surgery is not conducive to fabulous shoes! Within a few days though the outfit posts will begin, so get ready for some style inspiration and hopefully some fun along the way…
A couple of things you should know going in. While I enjoy looking at high-end clothes, you’re not going to find me wearing them. I am most definitely a budget kind of girl. Some of my most favorite stores are JC Penney, Target, and GAP, with the occasional WalMart sprinkled in. Nothing makes me giddier than scoring a great pair of jeans or a couple of maxi skirts at JCP for under $20!
I’m also not a rule follower…what fun is that? Your clothes should you make you happy and make you feel good about yourself. Who cares if short girls aren’t supposed to wear cropped pants or women of a “certain age” shouldn’t wear graphic tees?! I love ’em so I wear ’em. Is every day a fashion hit? No. I’ve had plenty of misses, but that’s part of the fun, figuring out what works and what doesn’t.
