Bell Sleeves and Embroidery

Yesterday my old roomie/best friend/sorority sister/and the.B.Law style panelist Heather and I started a month long challenge. In this challenge we are on wallet lockdown. There will be no purchasing of unnecessary items ESPECIALLY clothing. We also have to wear a different outfit everyday with no repeats, creating new looks with the clothes we already have in our closets. Now to be honest, 30 days of new outfits doesn’t fully intimidate me. I am not one for outfit repeating and I know Heather isn’t either. There are days though where I wake up late and just go for something safe, that I know works. This challenge is starting off at a month to make me be creative everyday and could very well continue to an additional month. We will see!

Anyways, today is day 2 and here is my look! I saw this embroidered, button up, striped, bell sleeve top and thought it was weird yet I was strangely fascinated by it. I literally walked back up to it in Target two more times after I first saw it. I remembered a skirt from BooHoo I wanted and thought it might be the perfect pair for this top. I left and didn’t buy it. I had to see if I would still think about it after I left (that is how I really know I want something). I looked up the skirt again on BooHoo and was sold. I ordered the skirt and went to Target the next day to get the shirt. Well the skirt came in and was entirely too small so I had to make an online return, which honestly I have always been terrified to make for some odd reason but it turned out to be so easy that I felt silly. FINALLY I got the new skirt it and it fit! Note about the skirt, it does not stretch so although it may fit around your waist your leg spread really isn’t all that wide. Not that you should really need it to be but its not, and I walk fast and I don’t feel like my legs have the proper speed potential. That sounds totally ridiculous and can totally go off in a bad direction so moving on… The color of the skirt isn’t quite the same pink as in the embroidery but I really like it together. Check it out below!

Yes I am very aware of my weird hair day in these pictures…

If you missed my first day look on Instagram yesterday here it is!

Tragic Fashion- Nothing to Wear

Me: “We have so many clothes, you’d think we’d have something for every occasion, but we don’t!”

Roomie: “Nope because it all depends on where you wore it last and what pictures you have posted in it.”

TRUTH. 

This was mine and my roomie’s conversation on our drive home tonight. We were discussing what we should wear to a bridal shower next weekend, and somehow out of both of our overflowing closets, we don’t have a thing to wear. It’s true! We couldn’t find a dress to wear, but we found a back up dress. Interesting how that works. It’s our we will wear that if we can’t find a better option dress, as in buy a new dress because don’t already have a million. I am one of the biggest offenders of this, but I just wonder, why do girls think it’s so bad to repeat an outfit? If this wasn’t an issue, getting dressed in the morning would be so much easier!
