Well, I have decided to fight fire with fire. Or, in this case stripes. I am on day two of pre- planning my outfits and I have to say it's working out well. I just have to get off the gray theme. But, today it was gray again! I felt confident, and spunky in this outfit. What I don't show you is the cute red readers I wore with it. I have a collection of readers. They are generally from big lots. I can get 3 for $5.00 and that includes red, blue and animal print. Sadly I wore the animal print out and am waiting for them to go on sale.
Oh, have I told you how frugal I am? Of course I have silly goose!
A long time ago my aunt taught me a phrase, It went something like "Save on what you need and spend on what you want". I thing that sums me up in a nutshell.
So, if I need glasses it's off to Big Lots. But if I want that incredible cape that Two Birds have in their Itsy shop I'm buying it. They have it on hold for me. I'm waiting for Paypal to link my credit card to my account. I've had a Paypal account for over 10 years but haven't used it in a very long time. As soon as I'm done with this post I'm trying again. If Paypal hasn't figured it out yet I'm a gonna start a bitching! I told the man it's my Valentines Day present so I damn well hope to be wearing it next Tuesday!
Well, enough of my blah, blah ranting. Here is what I wore today. I am going to link this with the "coolest" link up. Trending Through The Decades: Stripes But of course it's my link up so what else can I say.
Stop by, show us you stripeosity! All I ask is that you try to remember to link back to my blog ( I really need more than 70 followers or it's going to be embarrassing. At least I finally got past 69!) and be confident enough to put your age decade next to your name. Ex: Tammy (50's) How hard is that?
So have a good week. I think I am on a blogging blitz. I guess that maybe how I am dealing with all of the work stuff. Hopefully, it will work out well. We'll see.....
Skirt thrifted $2.50
Scarf: Thrifted not sure but probably not over a buck
Turtle neck: A staple in the Midwest during the winter. 2.50
Sweater: I honestly can't remember. I think Carsons clearance for around $10.00
My favorite boots: J Crew $4.00 (did I tell you they were brand new when I thrifted them? )
Again, the neck tie scarf. I think I'm really liking this one.
Just wanted to show that I actually mixed 3 prints
