OK, I feel like I’m running on empty. I need another vacation. Instead I’m settling for this holiday weekend.
For whatever reason this color combo outs me in a relaxing mood. Maybe because the colors in my bedroom are pink and black. Anyway I feel like I could just sit at the table with glass of wine and watch the Mississippi River all day.
The majority of this outfit is thrifted. I picked up the skirt at Goodwill for $3 several years ago. I just love the white trim on it. I found the hot pink cardigan for $3 and the Croc wedges were $3 too. The got the tank top at Fashion Bug and the beads were a yard sale find ($.25.) I’m also wearing my big “C” pin.
I’ve been playing around with different setting in where I shoot my look. I also recently had to buy new camera because I broke my old one. I’m not happy with it yet. I’m still learning all the settings, but until I do it’s going to drive me crazy. I knew how to use my old camera. When you “shoot” yourself nearly everyday it’s important that your camera take clear shots.
Besides showing all of you my outfits, the other reason I like taking my photos is because it makes me aware of what I look like in my clothing. I know now what does and doesn’t work for me. I highly suggest everyone try this once in awhile. Even if you never show your pics to anyone you will begin to like what you see about yourself and what you don’t. It’s better than any mirror.
It’s never really been a concern of mine what people think about my look. I dress for myself, that’s the way I’ve always been. The reason I enjoying writing this blog is that I like sharing with all of you my good buys and the places I go to get them. As a single mom I’ve had to live on a tight budget, but I still enjoy shopping so thrifting and sales are how I buy things. I know there are a lot of women out there like me, so I just want to pass along the fact that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have have fabulous fashion.
