Summer Sunday

Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend! Adam and I spent it with family — at the pool, by the grill, and later with a pan of brownies — so our’s was a success. :)

Here’s a couple photos of what I wore to church Sunday, before temps hit the 90s.

Dress: American Eagle | Necklace: American Eagle (super old) | Shoes: Lucky Brand | Purse: Nine West

A few years ago I entered a contest for AE, and although I didn’t win, I did receive a bunch of gift cards, which is where this dress came from. The morals of this story: It always pays to try, and the price — in this case, zero — can make a piece all the more attractive.

Chic, cheap and short (hair)

Two months and one haircut later, I’m back!

Here are some fun facts about this look:

  1. This Banana Republic top was on sale for $12. I also used a 10 percent student discount.
  2. These shorts were purchased out of season two years ago at J.C. Penney. They cost $4.
  3. You can’t see the $3.99 sticker on the bottom of these heels. They came from Goodwill.  I also used a 10 percent student discount.
  4. This Nine West purse is not new. It’s not from last season, or the season before that, OR the season before that.
  5. I don’t know how to style hair. Carrie at Trumps Salon is a genius, though.

Did I write a book or something? This kind of looks like an author photo.

I will admit, I’ve struggled with blogging because I thought it might seem vain. That, however, has never been my goal. My first goal was to go back to doing what I love to do (i.e. mixing and matching pieces and accessories), and blogging became a natural progression of that. Hopefully my posts have served as inspiration to shop smart — and sparingly.

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised. —Proverbs 31:30
