First off I’d like to make it totally clear that I AM NOT a fashion blogger, nor am I trying to become one. I am just a girl who had an extremely boring wardrobe who has made an effort to change. Change has been slow, very slow. Like one super cheap find at a time slow, but it is happening. Today I wanted to share some photo proof that things are getting better.
I don’t have a large wardrobe packed full of trendy styles. My shoe department could use a few additions and I hardly have any accessories. I say all of this to say working with what you have can sometimes surprise a person. What if instead of focusing on what we don’t have we focused on what we do. That attitude change alone can make getting dressed so much easier and avoid flashbacks to 16 years old, clothes EVERYWHERE, crying on the bed (probably in your underwear) because “I have nothing to wear”. Some days the glass half full approach is harder than others, but I am trying.
Here are a few outfits that I have been wearing lately.
This is a good example of an everyday go to look for me. I could live in tanks, short and my Chacos. The top is a great kelly green and this was my first ever pair of patterned shorts. I can’t wait to find some more.
When Becky shared an outfit post a few weeks back I literally found myself running to Wal-Mart that same morning. I was on the lookout for a shirt I was never able to locate. But with the 4th just around the corner I decided to grab this shirt instead.
Can I just take a moment to say how awesome Becky is. I can Snapchat her photos while shopping and she is always so helpful. Plus she keeps coming up with cute outfits that challenge me to branch out even more.
This is a long time favorite tank of mine that I used to wear with everything, all the time. But now I am super excited to pair it with this Lula Roe skirt…. that I won! I LOVE the color and pattern. I wore it once to Wal-Mart after church and received tons of compliments. Their maxis are UH-mazing.
Shirt Wal-Mart 4.88 / Pants Old navy
I owned absolutely no floral so after buying the polka dot tank above I decided that for less than $5 I NEEDED another one. So glad I picked this pattern.
I tried this shirt on fully expecting to hate it and it quickly turned out to be one of my favorites. The fit, the style the colors. I love everything about it.
Shorts/ Shirt JCP no longer available online
Another shirt I didn’t think I would buy when I tried it on. The pattern is so much fun and it is light weight making it perfect for a hot summer day.
I liked the idea of wearing converse with dresses so putting this look together with a simple skirt and a graphic-tee was one of the first things I wanted to do when I got my chucks.
I said I would change and I think I have.
Bye-bye boring wardrobe. Hello color, pattern, and fun!
