When I shop, I buy things because they have potential or because they make me happy–not because “everyone else is doing it.” I’ve pretty much been that way the majority of my life (at least since I’ve been able to pick out and buy my own clothes). There are some things that consistently make me happy: blouses, ruffles, graphic tees, leggings, blazers, high waisted skirts, and bow ties! I couldn’t put EVERYTHING I like in these photos, but check out how I pull together some of the elements I love to create fun, functional outfits.
A fun day in the park: I’ve always liked swings. I tried to relive the days of my youth…seemed a lot harder to propel myself forward than it used to!
Lounging: I heart my DIY bench (read about how I made it HERE). It’s the perfect place to sit, people watch, and read. I love this skirt because it’s flowy and comfy. I love the sweater, because it isn’t bulky.
I call this my “Little House on the Prairie” look. On first glance, this skirt isn’t the cutest thing in the world, but adding a head wrap and a cute jacket gave it so much life! BTW, does the scarf look familiar? It made an appearance as a top when I was on vacay. Read about it HERE.
That purple lipstick? Awesome addition to my collection…thanks roomie!
I like tees. They make me happy. This tee has a skull that reads, “Midnight Party.” To dress it up, I added shiny leggings and a pink, Michael Jackson-inspired jacket.
When I wear a heel, better believe it’s a fly one. Love these black booties! I found the belt at a thrift store for half off. I had to get it, because I know how much these belts retail for. I purchased the blouse from Minerva Vintage Closet on Etsy. If you get a chance, check her out. Cute clothes and excellent customer service.
There you have it folks. This is how I roll. 🙂 If you missed Ricks’ last style post, check it out HERE. She’s pretty awesome and so is her style.
Until Next Time,
