Pants and the Blues

You can't tell from these photos, but these pants are blue velour.  They are a fun alternative to blue jeans, and I think they read as a little dressier than jeans.  I've been wearing more pants, but now that the weather is getting nicer I'll likely transition back to more dresses and skirts.

Sweater, Faded Glory, Walmart; tank, A.K.C., thrifted; velour pants, Buffalo, Costco; shoes, Younkers, earrings, thrifted; necklace, made by me!

These glasses are one of "the best" things that I've been "saving."  I'm afraid if I wear them, I'll break or scratch them, but if I don't wear them, my prescription will change or I lose them or I'll die and I'll never get to enjoy them.  Don't save the best for last, enjoy the best now!

A Shirt Dress and Styling I Really Like

It took me a long time to find shirt dresses I really like, but Walmart and Beyonce's mom delivered with this one and its rust-colored mate. I'd rather have a litle nicer fabric, but they are the best shirt dresses I've found yet.  I particularly like it with leggings because the result is comfortable and reasonably chic.

Dress, Miss Tina, Walmart; leggings, Faded Glory, Walmart; belt, thrifted; shoes, Christmas Tree Shops; earrings handmade by me.

I'm still trying to figure out how to style this hair.  So far I've figured out that slightly dirty hair styles better than freshly washed.  I am terrible at styling hair.

I'm wearing leopard shoes, leggings, and belt.  The cashier at Costco said I must really like leopard, and she was right!

Pot O' Gold

Something you likely already know: I often post outfits a few at a time, which means that the outfit I post about isn't always the outfit I'm actually wearing that day.  Some days, though, it is important to post on the actual day.  Here is today's outfit, a pot of gold with flecks of green.

Jacket, Loft, thrifted; dress, Xhiliration, Target; jacket, Loft, thrifted; leggings, Faded Glory, Walmart;  belt, thrifted; shoes, Aerosoles, Amazon; earrings, Claire's; necklace, ebay.

I felt perfectly seasonal for Saint Patrick's Day without being too on-the-nose.

Also notable today, I'm trying contouring.  My cheekbones could cut a bitch.

I took my outfit photos at the end of the day, for once, and it was a long day of normal desk work and tromping through a construction site to be.  All in all, I think the outfit held up.  The long pearls and bow blouse have kind of a flapper vibe, but with the day I had, I'd call this ensemble unflappable.

Dress, Merona, Target; blouse, Loft, gifted (thanks, Kristin), shoes, Born, Goody Two Shoes; earrings, ebay; necklace, craft fair.  (Honorable mention to my favorite glasses from
