Outfit Repeater

outfit repeaterRepeating outfits is something I am guilty of all the time, I’m not sure if its out of laziness or lack of clothes, either reason I don’t really care. Anyway here is a look of an outfit I wore while I was out of town on a roadtrip. I wanted to be comfortable but I didn’t want to look like a slob either. I think this outfit has the perfect comfort to style ratio.

Now if you’re not too concerned with comfort and you’re not going to be jumping around ūüėČ you can always opt for a pair of killer heels.98909907These are my “sitting shoes”9924988599369872I hope you all enjoyed this look and have a wonderful weekend.

Fashion Friday featuring Cotton On.

As many of you may have noticed a good deal of my wardrobe is from Cotton On. But can you really blame me? Their clothes are always beautiful, they constantly have sales, and not the trickster kind of sales where you actually aren’t saving money but honest to goodness sales, and they are an awesome company that has a true sense of responsibility, you can find out all about the Cotton On Foundation here to learn all about the way they are improving the world and helping others¬†http://www.cottononfoundation.org/¬†but what I think is really great they make it incredibly easy for customers to make donations right at the checkout! No fussy paperwork to fill out no lifetime commitments have to be made, you can just make a donation then and there.

Blouse: Cotton On I bought mine on clearance so I couldn’t find the link to the exact one I am wearing so you can check your local Cotton On’s sales rack or buy this similar blouse¬†http://shop.cottonon.com/shop/product/katja-s/l-shirt-white/

Midi rings: Forever 21 http://www.forever21.com/Product/Product.aspx?Br=F21&Category=ACC&ProductID=1040665778&VariantID=

Swing skirt: Cotton On¬†http://us.cottonon.com/shop/product/jeanie-flippy-skirt-black/¬†They’re currently having a sale on these and you can get 2 for $20! This is one of my favorite cuts for a skirt, they’re slightly longer in the back which is great for modesty’s sake and the have shape that gives a nod to the 50’s which I adore. I could honestly buy one in every color!

Boots: Atwoods. Now Atwoods is a country supply store so they don’t have a website to order from, so you can either see if one is near you, or buy some similar ones from Sheplers¬†http://www.sheplers.com/Old-West-Jama-Basic-Western-Cowgirl-Boots-Medium-Toe/21879.pro?parentCategoryId=448&categoryId=459&subCategoryId=460¬†these are one sale for $54.99 which is practically unheard of when talking about cowboy boots. I’ve seen some boots that cost more than an actual horse! So these are quite the bargain ūüėČ

I hope you all enjoyed this post and that you have a happy Friday!

Fashion Friday heads to Dallas Pinup.

So Saturday afternoon my best friend and I headed out for a bit of shopping. I had found out about Dallas Pinup just through searching google for Rockabilly/Pinup clothing stores in the Dallas region. Let me tell you I am beyond thrilled I found this place. The moment I walked through the door I felt as though I had died and gone to my own retail heaven! You walk in and your eyes don’t know where to settle first, the dress rack to your right? The cosmetics in the center? The hats on the left? Oh it’s all so perfect! I totally spaced and forgot to take interior pictures of the store sorry, maybe I was a little too excited ūüėČ I did manage to remember to snap a few pics of different dresses when I was in the fitting room though.

IMG_9682Almost bought this white dress, it was so darling! Doesn’t my best friend look stunning?

IMG_9685Another considered purchase, I was head over heals in love with the shape.

IMG_9679My best friend is such a knock out!

IMG_9686Please excuse my ever so messy hair, trying on clothes has a way of messing your do up. This romper was sooooo cute but you only get to see the top half cause it was a bit short on me. ūüėČ I did actually purchase a dress but you’ll just have to wait to see it. I want to give it a proper shoot. But I shall share my outfit I wore that day though.

Easter Sunday was lovely, the weather was nice (cloudy in the morning but warm) the food was wonderful (brisket makes this Texan happy), and I got to see my big brother, sister-in-law, and beautiful nephew! It was a great day and if I say so myself I managed a great outfit, but I’ll let you guys be the judge of that.
