I am a t-shirt and jeans type of gal. 99% of my wardrobe has come from Target or Old Navy. Every once in a while I will splurge and buy a pair of jeans or shoes from Kohls (I do wear heals/wedges a lot...that is the one area where I look decent usually....my shoes!)
So my dilemma is that Ben is about to retire from the Air Force which means a ceremony where I need to look not so much like a mom that stays home all day. I have no idea what to get. I am actually a teeny part of the ceremony (which I absolutely HATE) so I need to not only look okay, but I need to be fairly comfortable in how I look too so that I don't screw up in front of everyone.
So this morning I have been trawling the net looking for looks that might work. I thought that I would share a few of them with you. (when I started doing this, I wasn't planning on doing a blog post about it, so I don't have any links. Sorry about that!)
This first look is my favorite and it is from Ruche (last years collection so it's not even available anymore even if I could afford their prices....LOL!)
This is a look that I picked up *I think* from Anthropologie, but now that I am looking at it, I am not too sure about that. I am not sure that it is Indie enough to be one of their looks...
Cute top, maybe from Chadwicks???
Cute jacket definitely from Chadwicks. I adore jackets and this one is awesome and it was only around $22...a steal!
I love this top from Kohls, but so few people, me included, can actually pull off wearing ivory without looking totally sick.
I love this little ruffled sweater from Dillards. I imagine wearing it with a longer tee underneath it. I am LOVING the ruffles everywhere this year!
Another ca-ute sweater from Dillards. It was shown with this fantastic skirt, but I have AWFUL legs so I don't wear ANYTHING that shows them...NOTHING!
Then because I will need some new pants, I picked up a couple of images of pants from Victorias Secret....not that I would ever look like this in their pants...mainly because I am 5'6", not 6'5". hehe!
You will notice all of these have a washed, comfy look. Totally necessary for me to feel comfortable during that day.
And of course, I am a shoe girl so you better bet I am going to use a new outfit as an excuse for a new pair of shoes! ;o) I LOVE these ruffled ones from Payless...unfortunately, I have issues with 'walking out' of this style of shoes. I don't think I will let that stop me from going and trying them though!
Another ca-ute pair from Payless....
And I think that I am the only person that doesn't have a pair of gladiator styled sandals. I would love to fix that with this pair, but at $168 I don't think think that these will be making it into my closet anytime soon. I better head back over to the Payless website...LOL!
So what do you think? Have any store recommendations for me? The sad thing is that when I sat down to even trawl the net for ideas...I didn't even know any stores to go explore. How did I become such a mom?!?!
Now I better get off of here and go workout so that I look okay for the day!
