I have gotten a few emails and questions about my outfits.
Where I get my clothes?
How I put them together?
How do I know what to put together?
I'm always fascinated at what other bloggers are wearing, their trends where they live, and or some of the deals and discounts and latest sales. So I thought I would do a post on how I do it.
I don't consider myself to have style I just wear what I love. I don't follow any rules I think they are bogus. I will wear white all year round, I will wear black and brown, I just do me. Most important advice I would give is to always try new things out of your comfort zone. In 2011 while in Vegas for the first NFR we ever attended I saw all of these funky headbands and how they were sporting them and I loved them and I'm all bout funky but I was hesitant about me looking good in them. I thought I cant pull that look off but the hubbs said we are in Vegas and we don't know these people so why not try it. He was so right and I went and bought not 1 but 3 went to the bathroom in the convention center and put one on. I still didn't know about it but I would give it the rest of the day and see how I felt about it. While walking out of the bathroom I got several comments and the rest of the day people would stop me and say I love your headband I couldn't never pull it off. I simply replied with that's what I thought too. So needless to say I went back bought more and wore them the rest of the trip. When we were back home I wore them and I would get all kinds of crazy comments because this trend wasn't here yet. Did that stop me NO Im not a trend wearer I'm a trend setter. With that comment I mean if I like it Im going to wear it even if I am the only one doing it. Sometimes I look back and think what the hell why didn't anyone tell me NO the others I say I loved that look. So it's all about you being comfortable in your style to wear whatever you want when you want. The whole 2012 year I wore headbands and it was crazy getting all the snarky comments but I didn't care I love my headbands and then in 2013 the headband craze started in my town. Because I have a dry sense of humor I could simply say of the headbands are sooo 2011ago. See you never know. If you step out of your comfort zone you may actually love what you thought you would never ever imagine.
I am so not creative so when it comes to putting all these cute and funky outfits together I always go to my handy Pinterest to find inspiration. Here is what I do:
1. I find an outfit I love
2. I then go and find pieces that I have or look online for pieces I can use to replicate the look. I pinned the look I knew I had the brown fur vest. Its Steve Madden I scored on Ebay a few ago for 20 bucks. I knew I needed to find a red plaid shirt. My iPhone noted has a note labeled "Looking for" and I write all the things I'm looking for so while I'm out and about I can see if I find anything.
I found the plaid shirt at Forever21. Here is one for 12$
I feel like I always wear leggings so I decided to go with some AE distressed skinnies. Give those babies a small roll and pair them with these booties. that's how easy it is to create a cute outfit without having creativity.
This is another look that is easy to be recreated. I got this picture from Pinterest
When I think of this look I think of it on a day when I don't have time or want to wash the hair but have errands to run and things to do I can throw this comfortable outfit on and go about my day while feeling cute. More than likely we all have every single piece in our closet. If you don't do leggings you can do black skinnies or ever dark denim skinnies.
This is another look I have recreated and use the same leopard scarf from above.
the recreated look
Don't worry with the name brand when you are recreating a look. We all want more for less so I would recommend instead of looking for the brand look for the item.
Example Rag & Bone red skinnies.....we all know rag and bone is pricey so I just looked for red skinnies and snagged a pair for around 30 instead of the hefty price of rag and bone. Now if you are lucky you can search on Ebay for Rag and bone and score a pair.
A lot of questions and the one I get the most is where I shop. that is the hardest thing to answer because I am an online shopper addict so I will start from there. I tend to shop at a lot of online boutiques or I will type what I'm looking for in the Google search bar and it will bring me a few options. I get clothes from everywhere I am not picky if I like it I get it. Here is a post where I go into more detail of a few places I shop. Right now I am loving Nordstrom's and have a lot of items in my cart just wish I had the money to buy everything in there so narrowing it down is hard.
A smoking hot Momma friend of mine Nicole @ Prairie Princess has been doing a what I'm wearing posts and I love them. She takes pictures of the different outfits and once she has a good many of them she will do a post and post them along with where she got her pieces from. I love it because sometimes there will be pieces she got at somewhere that I have never shopped at before so I love learning and seeing new things. I actually need to talk her into doing a link up when she does those post and everyone can link up at her blog.
I ordered it and love it!
I am going to have to get the brown one now.
