Out of Heavy Rotation

Dress: ?, Walmart brand
Necklace: Kohls

Before I started blogging, this was one of those sundresses that I would wear multiple times over the course of the summer. I still love it, but it's out of heavy rotation now. Wearing more things out of my closet is probably my favorite part of blogging. I now choose outfits based on 1) whether it's been blogged or not and 
2)if I want to take pictures that day. It's a whole different mindset. 

The blogger in me also had to add the necklace, so that the outfit is a little more special :)

Easy Fridays

Dress: Target
Belt: JCPenney
Flip Flops: Swimsuits for All, old

My Fridays are reserved for kid's health appointments, library visits, laundry, and watching my DVR. This calls for comfy clothes and shoes. 
So happy and lucky to have a extra day off!

Go shopfreak!

Top: H&M $3
Necklace: refashioned from belt links
Skirt: c/o OASAP
Watch: Kenneth Cole, mr.shopfreak hand me down. 
Love Bracelet: Rue 21 $0.50 :), similar
Shoes: Payless

My coworker loved what she called my "cheerleading" skirt.  I've had this skirt for a while, but the fabric is heavier so I thought it would be too hot for summer weather. Surprisingly, the structure of the fabric kept it away from my skin. I love how the fabric keeps the pleating and am so happy that I won't have to ever have to iron this skirt!

Loving this arm party too! I'm so into layering bracelets. 
In desperate need of a gold watch now....

(woohoo! i've been pinned!)

One with Nature

Sweater: Kohls $3
Skirt: old
Necklace: Mervyns and handmade
Bracelet: ?
Purse: Thrifted $3
Sandals: Payless $5

I'm loving all the natural colored open weave sweaters and crocheted details this season. I ordered a bunch of this style from Victoria's Secret to try out, because they do a really good job of photographing their clothing. When I received them though, they just weren't as cute as the picture, especially for the price. I love that you can return online orders in stores now, but the process does take awhile.

Do you buy clothing from Victoria's Secret?

A Grenade for you..

Shirt: Marshalls $7
Cargo pants: Ross?
Wedges: Kohls
Necklace: Thrifted $6

I was so excited to find this necklace and stalked it for awhile because I thought it was pricey at $12 at a thrift shop. I waited until the end of the month and was excited to find that no one had picked it up during the 50% off day. Maybe because it was pretty heavy. It is inscribed with the word "India" on the clasp so I'm sure I won't be finding anything like it soon. It's so unique and I wanted to extend the whole grenade vibe by wearing military inspired clothing.

You're wearing rainboots with that?

Dress: Ross $0.50! 
Rainboots: Charlotte Russe $10 
Green Bracelet: c/o ShopLately
Yellow Bracelet: Sway, $2
Photographer: my BFF

Here's another set of pics that my best friend took. I'm not usually one to post multiple pictures of the same outfit, but she took such great pictures, 
I hope you'll indulge me just this once :)

BFF didn't get the look I was going for with my rainboots and another one of my ultimate bargain dresses, but I love it. It's one of those outfits in my head, that I wasn't sure
 I'd ever have the perfect weather or occasion to wear it. 
 I'm so happy the outfit lives in blogger land now!
