Iabsolutely love the idea of mixing things up with what you have. I got these jeans at TJ MAXX and they are bordering on jeggings. I could not believe that I found a pair of jeans that fit me so perfectly. So, I've worn them twice this week with a minor change, the first time I rolled them up slightly. I know, I know, versatility with blue jeans is not necessarily a monumental, alert the press, blogging moment. Still, there are ways that even the most mundane garments can be tweaked for a slightly different look.
This is a vintage top that I picked up for about $1.50. It's the sleeves that roped me in. I believe it's actually a pajama top....I do love these vintage pjs!
This was on our way to breakfast this morning. Basically, I got out of bed and just threw on jeans and white tee shirt - one of my all time favorite combinations. Then, layer on the necklaces! This is the quickest and easiest way to turn "MYEH" into "OH YEAH!" We've all got tons of necklaces flying around and they don't even have to be expensive. Try it sometimes and then send me a pic....I'd love to see how others get creative with necklaces! You may also recognize this sweater as one of my thrifting treasures from last weekend. I can see already this baby's gonna see alot of action!
Blogging has really helped me overcome some photo anxiety. I have always hated the way I look in pictures. I'll nitpick myself apart, hone in on the thighs, or some goofy expression on my face and within 5 minutes I'm wanting to crawl in a hole. Well now, I REJECT THAT WAY OF THINKING! My 44 year old body has been wonderful to me! I'm certainly not going to bad mouth it now. Putting it all out there helps me to say, "Yup, that's me and I like it!"
