30 Days of Denim – Day Fourteen

I have put together 14 outfits thus far and by my count this is the 8th outfit that involves stripes.  One must first admit they have a problem, yes? I didn’t even know I had that many different striped things in my closet. Hmmm…the more you know.

You know what I think it is though?  Stripes are the gateway drug.  You see it’s only been in the last year and a half that I have even entertained stripes because I realized I was always wearing solid colors.  Solids are fine, if not a little boring worn everyday right?  But I am WAY SCARED of buying anything patterned.  I just…well, just not yet. But I’ll get there.

Again, one must keep their very superficial goals in mind, you know?  😉

Stripes are my gateway drug to patterns.  Maybe I will get there in the next two weeks, maybe not.  For now,

Here was my inspiration:


And here is what I came up with:


Yes, it’s kind of an easy phone-it-in outfit, but the green stripes with brown! I was in love! In hindsight, I probably could have accessorized more but I was too obsessed with my glittery shoes to think about accessories.

Cardigan: Merona for Target
Tank: Gap
Jeans: Gap Slim Boyfriend Jeans (a favorite, obvs. God, they are like pajama pants!)
Gold Ballet Flats: Payless
Earrings: I think these are a hand me down from my mom

Speaking of shoes, I totally scored two pairs of shoes at Target yesterday despite all that Missoni madness. One on my lunch break and one that my mom scored for me from her Target. I am not the type of person who can let something sit in my closet, I want to wear it IMMEDIATELY, so my guess is they’ll turn up around here shortly. Did you score anything fun from Target yesterday?


What did you wear today?

Join the group and play a little show and tell.

    You look awesome, as always. I am now obsessed with the bag and shoes from your inspiration picture. Also the earrings. Okay, and the shirt. FINE. ALL OF IT. I WANT ALL OF IT.

    Seriously, you’ve inspired me to start revamping my wardrobe. Three kids into this business, almost to my pre-babying weight, I’m finally feeling human enough to put some thought into my appearance again. Thanks for the motivation!

      Oh good! I am so glad, because I am uncomfortable with the idea of this being one giant vanity project. I don’t want it to be all — HEY LOOK AT ME. I’m sort of enjoying the fact that I can make a *tiny* bit more effort in choosing clothes, but feel EXPONENTIALLY better. Now photographing it and blogging about it every day is definitely starting to feel like work, but I’m glad to do it if there is some benefit to the experience like having someone else feel a little more energized about their own wardrobe too! Yay! Thanks, Diane!
