Happy Friday everyone! I am having a fantastic Good Friday, hope you are as well. I have a few free moments and thought I would do my OOTD post now, while my son is napping. I recently received a private message about my OOTD posts, wondering why I post pictures of what I am wearing and how I could possibly consider myself frugal.
I do these posts with the intention of helping others in two ways – first, to show that cute clothes don’t have to cost a fortune and second, to give people ideas on what to wear or how to wear pieces they already own in different ways. I thought my intentions were clear, I don’t think of myself as a “fashionista” or someone who is hoping to become a model! LOL! If there is ever a market for 31 year-old, 5’2 moms, with TMH (too much hair) I suppose I have that market covered. In all seriousness, my goal is to help and share with others.
Also, I understand that the dictionary definition of frugal means to be careful or cheap with your money. I try to be careful with my money, but I am still going to spend money and that is why I include the price of the items I post about. If I compare my spending today, to how I spent five years ago, I am beyond frugal. So, I guess I would consider myself a reformed shopoholic on the journey to frugalism!
Black and white striped t-shirt $7.99 from Ross, bought in December, last seen here.
Mint skinny jeans $19 from TJ Maxx, bought a few weeks ago, last seen here.
Gold pave post earrings free from my grandma.
Black patent leather and cork wedge slides $12, from For Elyse, bought several years ago. I love For Elyse! It is a store in Chico, CA that has the cutest clothing, shoes, and accessories. It has grown quite a bit since I was a college student and now they have a website, which is awesome!
