I like to reserve Wednesday’s blog position for “inspired looks”. Hope springs eternal that someone will have read something on my blog that prompted a new look or outfit and I can feature them (Cat’s Inspired Look remains my most popular post of all time).
In the absence of such a post, and since I took the holiday off on Monday, I thought I’d go ahead with my usual today.
Lately, I’d been very concerned that I’d lost my shopping mojo. I’d buy a piece here and there, but I hadn’t had a good shopping trip in months, and I was worried my love was fading.
It wasn’t. Last Wednesday, I went to the mall to kill some time before church. I never made it to church. Instead, I came away with quite a haul of new fun things, including this shirt.
You know I love my cheap stores for belts and other accessories. But I rarely – if ever – buy clothes from those stores since the quality is so poor and the cuts made for pre-pubescent girls. However, Body Central had a huge clearance, so I had to take a look. I found this shirt (and another) for $4 each, and since both were blousy, I knew I could make them work, even if I am not 13 years old.
This shirt looks a little funny unbelted, but I love it with my sparkly belt (also from Body Central, BTW). I kept the overall look neutral to accent the belt and not compete with the femininity of the blouse. But, because I’m still me, I had to have a little color, so I added some turquoise earrings. I don’t know why my hair is in this picture, except I guess because it looks cool.
Please send me pictures of YOU to feature so I don’t look so narcissistic all the time! Or, don’t forget – if you have a piece you don’t know how to style, send me a picture of that, too, and I’ll come up with some options for you!
