Aug. 28 OOTD: Friday Freedom


It was another tough day at work, juggling two jobs at once but I made it through without too much complaining, lol. I’m very excited about my OOTD today because it included a skirt that I made myself. The skirt used to be attached to a vintage puffy sleeved long dress that may have been work by an old lady in the 90s at some point, lol. It was pretty overwhelming on the eyes but I cut the bottom half off and added elastic to the waistband to refashion it into a flowy skirt. I’m really happy with how it turned out. Brandon helped me put this OOTD together since I couldn’t find my glasses this morning. We paired it with a thrifted Old Navy denim top, a leather belt and my nude shoes from Target. My bag is from Charming Charlie.  What do you think?

Have courage,

August 17th OOTD: Stripes and Floral


My husband loves when I wear the color pink. He also loves anything skirts and dresses so I decided to combine both of those for my OOTD on Monday. It may sound cheesy, but I like to think that when he looks at me, he likes what he sees. I also strive to wear things that make me feel positively about myself and this was definitely a winner on both sides. It kind of reminds me of the 90s mixed with today’s style. A lovely librarian, a substitute teacher that all the kids like. These are the kinds of images and feelings that I got when I wore this. What do you think of?

The top is from Banana Republic divided at the waist by my brown Old Navy Belt. I got this vintage skirt from a thrift store and my earrings from Charming Charlie. The necklace costed $1 from a costume jewelry shop at the mall.

Have courage,

5.12.15 OOTD: Denim and Denim


So I diverted from the capsule this week but I had a good reason. I went thrift shopping and couldn’t wait to start wearing my new threads. Hence, today I wore this denim Old Navy top along with the Seven jeans and Coach shoes. I forgot to wear ear rings so I put on some red lipstick and the peach colored belt from Forever 21. I think it worked out pretty well. What do you think?

Have courage,
