It was a glorious weekend of warm weather! I enjoyed being lazy and running errands in worn-in, comfortable clothes. My favorite part of my outfit above are the shorts, because I transformed them from an awesome pair of acid wash, mom-butt jeans. My little DIY shorts project takes all of 5 minutes. Figure out the length of shorts you prefer and “snip, snip.” Wash them to get the fray along the bottom and if you want to soften them up, take some sandpaper to them.
My outfit: glasses, Ralph Lauren (new, and I’m crazy about them!); sweater, Express; t-shirt (technically, pajamas), Victoria’s Secret; shorts, DIY, shoes, Chinese Laundry; purse, vintage Coach.
There’s nothing like a lazy Sunday brunch. My green blouse with lace trim is one of my treasured vintage finds. I find that the little details of clothes are what make them truly special! After a cloudy Monday, I am hoping for a sunny day tomorrow. Have a good week!
As spring approaches I am itching to go on a shopping spree. I’m trying to practice more self control in this area so I’ve come up with 3 budget worthy tips to refresh your wardrobe in anticipation of spring.
1. Try on everything. I’m serious about this. This way you know what fits and what doesn’t. You’ll rediscover things that you love but have forgotten and you’ll find pieces that will make you wonder why you ever bought them in the first place. Throw the latter out.
2. Reorganize. Rearrange your closet. I recommend grouping pieces that you like wearing together next to each other. I find it easier to dress when my closet is arranged this way rather than going through my closet section by section to get pants then shirt, etc.
3. Thrift. Now that you have an idea of the gaps in your wardrobe for spring, take an afternoon to visit your local thrift store. If you’re the type that gets overwhelmed at a thrift store, there are three go-to sections you should visit. Look through the purses, blazers, and blouses section. Any vintage finds in these areas are easy to incorporate into your existing wardrobe.
