Before we get to some of my recent fashion finds, let me apologize for my absence on the blog….for the last 2-3 weeks we’ve been knee deep in renovating a half bath at my mom’s old house (which we recently rented out – yay!). What started out as what we thought was a quick fix in the shower of her 50+ year old house resulted in completing gutting the entire bathroom and starting from scratch. While the bathroom did need a complete overhaul, we didn’t need the $3,000+ price tag that went along with it. So here’s a big shout out to my husband and our wonderful friend Scott for all their hard work and dedication on this project.
Now, onto the “fashion show”. I don’t think I’ve ever shared my love of clothes & shoes on my blog but trust me….I LOVE CLOTHES & SHOES! But since I’m no longer working I can’t justify my shopping addiction and have had to create a wardrobe that is suitable to wear around the house but with the addition of an accessory or two, looks good enough to go out. Of course, Pinterest has played a large part in the revamp of my wardrobe. I pin outfits I like and make notes of what I have and what I’d need to get a similar look. I spent most of Tuesday shopping and think I did pretty good recreating some of my favorite looks.
First I’m going to show you photos of some of the outfits I pinned:
Simple, simple…white button down shirt, jeans & leopard shoes
Black turtleneck, jeans, gray scarf & black boots
I’m on the hunt for a red vest and purse
I recently bought a cute white quilted vest for this look…and I love the yellow purse!
Love, love, love the gray and white and doesn’t that scarf pull it all together?
I’ve wanted this outfit since last year….I have a red stretch bracelet and still looking for a red infinity scarf
Love the gray knitted scarf
Too cute (I love the turquoise paired with gray…have to try this)!
Leopard scarf and yellow accents

I had a few basic items such as a white shirt, black tops and jeans. My shopping list included finding a gray scarf, leopard scarf, gray & white zebra scarf and leopard shoes. I also picked up a chunky silver bracelet…I wear a lot of silver jewelry.
I think I hit the jackpot on all three! I got the gray knit scarf at K-Mart ($7.99 on sale); gray & white zebra scarf at Ross ($9.99) and brown leopard scarf at Target ($14.99).
I also found these cute leopard shoes at K-Mart.
I haven’t cut off the elastic tying the shoes together until I made sure they were going to be comfortable. The price of the shoes was $19.99 but they rang up for $7.99!
I also found these adorable velvet pumpkins at Ross….
Can you believe $2.99 each?!?!?! The large ones were $4.99 but I only got 2 little ones…might go back and get a few more. I’ve seen a couple of DIY velvet pumpkin tutorials so I might try my hand at making some but really, you can’t beat $2.99!
Our anniversary is this Friday…9 years! See ya’ll later!!!
