I am determined to keep blogging. I might not nail the inspiration look, or write the wittiest post, even though my writing does have a style (or lack of) of it's own. I just refuse to take blogging or style or what's in my closet to seriously. Don't get me wrong I love clothes, if I didn't I would be writing a gardening or cooking blog. And yes, you really owe me thanks for that!
I am going to continue down my own path. If I like a trend I'll usually fall head over heels in love, have it before anybody else in Hoosier land and thrift my way right through it. If I don't like it, I guess I prefer to pretend it just doesn't exist. Finally, when I get it down to a science everybody else is wearing it. Then it just doesn't thrill me anymore. I am holding on tight to my Maxi's. Even though they are getting fairly common I'll give them another round or two.. Personally, that is a perk of living in the Midwest. It takes a while for all of the East/West trends to hit so I feel I get double bang for my buck. And sometimes when East meets West in Indiana it can be a site to see!
I haven't participated in many link ups for the past two months. Again, a little determination.........I wanted to participate in Two Birds Inspiration Monday, and Not Dead Yet Style's Visible Monday And just because my evening was working out well I thought I'd throw in a link up with Jill for Monday Mingle I didn't think I would have the time and personal freedom this evening but luck was on my side. The Man had an eye appointment and Son #3 is at work. So this is what happens when you leave your slightly crazy Wife/Mother home with some wine and time on her hands.
First she takes old T shirts and strips them into a cool red/black scarf. Then she sneaks into your closet and "borrows" your tuxedo shirt and jacket. Then viola she has quirky outfit that will do her blog justice.
Ok,, the truth is I did cut up old T shirts but they were already destined to donate. I've had the tuxedo jacket for years and have worn it with everything from sequins to jeans and boots. And lastly I thrifted the tuxedo shirt a month or so ago and couldn't wait to wear it with black skinny jeans.
The red jacket has been worn here before. I do think I like it better than the black. I think I am starting to back off on some of the black in my wardrobe.
What do you think? Which look do you like better? Amazing that the simple change of a jacket can totally change an outfit.
Have a good week.
P.S. Yes, those are my old lady readers in my hand. Can't see the damn camera without them!
