Everyday Clothes

22 Oct 2012 Permalink

When I graduated college, I really started putting my “professional” wardrobe together…I had my work clothes, and I had my other clothes.  But as I got older, I realized that I wanted to look polished all the time…not just for work.  So I stopped buying t-shirts, and started buying tops that not only look good with jeans, but that could also be dressed up for a business causal look.  I need my clothes to function for work and for play.  This floral blouse (a recent thrifted find…it was a BIG score that day and I’ll be sharing the other pieces soon!) looks appropriate with jeans at the pumpkin farm.  And it will look equally great with dress pants or a pencil skirt and heels.

My two little pumpkins!

I’m really not stuck on labels, but when you can get a name brand for a few bucks, why wouldn’t you?  $176 versus $16.96…thrifting for the win!

Need more reasons to thrift?  See Reason #5 or Reason #30.

Well friends, I hate to keep mentioning it, but today is the last day of school!  Which means things around these parts are going to be getting a smidge more…oh, how do you say…casual.  Sun dresses with sandals and shorts with cute tops are on the horizon.  I also have some more diy posts planned.  And if there’s anything you liked to see more (or less) of, let me know!

Oh…and make sure to enter for this giveaway!  Don’t you want a chance to win a free piece of clothing?!

On Sundays I get my clothes ready for the work week.  I had planned to wear black and white today, but then I saw this and thought a denim top would be a nice change from a blazer. 

On a sort-of side note, I love checking out the style of others.  Looking for a little inspo yourself…check out these gems: A classic vintage vibe, trend setter, girl next door, layering expert, vintage meets present day glam, and queen with a sewing machine.
