Rolled up

Sweater - Calvin Klein - family gift
Pants - JCrew - thrifted
Shoes - Unlisted - Shoe Carnival
Necklace, earrings - coworker gift

These capri pants have the strangest length, I am experimenting with them by rolling them up this time. I don't like that they get wide towards the bottom when they are in their unrolled stage, I don't think that type of fit works for my body. I had to give it a chance and roll them up at least once. We learn from our mistakes, right?

Sweater - family gift
Skirt - H&M
Shoes - Bob's - Rack Room Shoes
Scarf - H&M
Bracelets - H&M
Earrings - old

Happy Wednesday. This skirt is a recent purchase from H&M. I  was thinking it's a little longer than it really is, but I can still wear it. Also, I think it will look better with sandals, we will see. The earrings have white leopard print on them as well, so I though they would go well with the scarf and gray sweater. Overall, this is a very comfortable outfit.

Top - Cupio - Dillard's
Dress - Mossimo - thrifted
Shoes - Bandolino - Marshall's
Purse - family gift
Belt - family gift
Sunglasses - Victoria's secret - family gift
Necklaces - family gift

Once I decided to wear brown necklaces with this dress, they rest was easy. I had plenty of brown accessories to complete the look. The variety of textures in all the brown accessories keep the look from looking too matchy-matchy. The purse is one of my favorite purses, it's made of stingray skin, and is very durable. The dark brown necklace is a gift from my sister, she got this necklace for me from Hawaii during her vacation there. The light brown necklace is made from wood, it came to me from my family.

Thank you for reading.

This was a casual Friday outfit, I just wanted to be comfortable in flat shoes and loose top. To bring a little sparkle to this neutral outfit, I wore bright gold earrings and a bracelet. I am glad that the winter is almost over it should start getting warmer.

Black flowers

Top - old
Cardigan - Julie's closet - old
Skirt - Gap - old
Shoes - Nine West - Marshall's
Sunglasses - Victoria's Secret - family gift
Leather bracelet - H&M
Leather earrings - family gift

I have had all of these clothing items longer than four years, so I don't remember the store I purchased this cardigan at and I believe a girlfriend of mine gave me this top. I started keeping track of all the clothes, shoes and accessories I purchase or receive as a gift on a spreadsheet in the beginning of 2011. I don't necessarily have monthly clothing/ accessories budgets, but rather keep a spreadsheet for a general idea how much I spend on clothing, shoes and accessories. Some months I might spend $150-$200 and others I might spend $20 or none at all. My family has also gifted me most of my jewelry, some of it is new but a lot of it is vintage and was worn by my grandmother, mother and aunts in the eighties and nineties. I love finding new ways to wear it and mixing it with modern clothing. Also, some dainty white gold necklaces, earrings and bracelets are gifts from my dear husband.

Last minute


Top - The limited - thrifted
Cardigan - Express - thrifted
Pants - H&M
Shoes - Bob's - Rack Room Shoes
Necklace, earrings - family gifts
I usually try to pick my outfit the night before or on the weekend, but sometime things don't work out this way. After my business trip out of town and visiting my sister in a different city, I only had a couple of hours on Sunday evening to spent time with my family and get ready for next week. I only had enough energy to create a Monday outfit, so this Tuesday outfit was what I came up with in the morning. Sometimes, last minute outfit can work out for the best, because then I go with simple pieces and not over-thinking it.

High low sweater

Top -Ross
Sweater - Wet Seal - family gift
Pants - BCBG - thrifted
Shoes - H&M
Earrings, bracelet - family gift

Happy Wednesday!!I love my new high low sweater. Whenever I looked at them in the stores, they seemed to look so baggy, so I never purchased one. My sister gave this one to me as a gift and I really like it. Here is my first outfit with it, and more later. Now when I am shopping for sweaters, I will have to check them out in other colors as well.

Silver tree

Dress - Norma Kamalli - family gift
Cardigan - Merona - Target
Belt - thrifted
Tights - old
Shoes - Nine West - Marshall's
Silver earrings, silver necklace - family gifts

I like chunky jewelry, but at times, I feel like wearing a simple silver or gold necklace such as this silver tree pendant and a pair of silver earrings. The rest of the outfit is pretty straight forward, black dress, tights for warmth, and a colorful cardigan.

Thank you for reading.
