Good ev'nin' ladies! I'm glad to be with you for another Saturday. :) Today I will be sharing an outfit post featuring an item that I've been wanting to acquire for some time. That's right - it's a jersey maxi skirt! They've been "in" for a while now and are probably on their way "out"... Oh well, perhaps it's better than way. ;)
Earlier this week I went on a shopping expedition at the mall with my mom. The results were that I bought this fun striped skirt and a graphic tee (which you may be seeing soon!). I was hoping to change up my look a bit, and both of the pieces are more trendy than what I normally buy in thrift and consignment stores. Now and then I enjoy buying brand new things that aren't already worn-in. It's also fun to join in on the trends now and then.
So, I'm going to honest with you and say that my skirt needed to be hemmed several inches before I could wear it! A friend surged it for me this afternoon, so this outfit wasn't even completely styled before 5 pm....which needed to get done because I had nothing else to blog about! That's the blogger life, folks. ;)
I decided to pair my striped skirt with a pale blue tee that matches the color of the top stripes in the skirt. I added my bow-shaped belt, which has proven helpful in covering the waistband the t-shirt is tucked into. A white ruffled cardigan adds a little warmth on this April evening. Lastly, my mom suggested shoeing myself in these red wedges, since red and navy go well together. Now my outfit is complete!
Outfit Details: Cardigan ~ Consignment; T-shirt ~ Hand-me-down; Skirt ~ Kohl's; Belt ~ Memory fails me...; Wedges ~ Again, memory fails me :(
If you're mainly a thrift store shopper, do you ever decide to buy brand new clothes?
Do you buy new clothes at a mall, a separate clothing store, a department store, or online?
Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
