Bright Blue Blazer

    I've never been one to wear a lot of colors. Historically (nice use of that word, eh?) my wardrobe has consisted of black, white, brown, and red. I've been working a lot to incorporate more color into my outfits besides just a pop from jewelry. Here's what i came up with!

Hat: $1 Antique Store
Blazer: $6 Goodwill
T-Shirt: $3 WalMart
Jeans: $25 (sale) Alloy
Shoes: $20 (link to similar, not exact shoes) Payless.
Total: $55

Later in the day we went elsewhere and I ditched the hat and went for some hair jewelry! Just a regular necklace pinned into my hair. Loved it!

Shirt: $0 "Borrowed" from ex-bf MANY years ago.

Thigh Highs - Casual

    It's been around zero degrees. Literally. We decided to head out to dinner then down to the big hospital to see a friend (tragic story, seriously)... so I needed something cute but WARM. Enter thigh high boots. These suckers are seriously warm. Jeans with leather over the top? Yup....nice and toasty. 

    I've had people ask where I would ever wear these (when I show them a pic or something), well, really? I wear them anywhere! I've worn them to church, out on the town, out to dinner, etc! You just have to be careful with the styling so they don't look costumey or skanky.  

Sweater: $0 Christmas Present several years ago (originally from Kohls.)
Belt: $0 included with dress purchased at Boston Store
Jeans: $20 (sale) Alloy
Boots: $30 (yes, for real!) UrbanOg
Total: $50
