Maybe its just me, but half the wonder of fall and cold weather is the fabulous combinations of wardrobe pieces you can stack and layer for great fall looks! I wish I had a full length mirror to capture the whole look but here’s what I wore out shopping today. 🙂 it was brisk and windy and chilly! Perfect weather, and I ended the day with a starbucks chai latte! (I was blessed w a giftcard last night…its the little things that make a day so loverly…)
I love mixing cool colors with a touch of warm, or warm colors with a touch of cool to balance the pallate. Here I had cools: blue jeans, pink, blues and pinks in scarf, white earrings, and I rounded it out with a leopard print bracelet and my brown leather jacket. And yes, you can mix prints if one is a large print. (Scarf -floral) and the other a small print (bracelet-leopard). On the bottom I had my dark blue skinny jeans and some worn looking black/dark brown leather boots.
I curled my hair with a hot tools white and black tapered curling rod I bought on ebay for around $40.
Scarf was given to me.
Earrings were from body central for 3.90.
Ring: I don’t remember!
Bracelet: rue 21 on clearance for $2!
Pink longsleeve tissue tee: target last year on clearance. I think I got it for pennies bc I had a coupon too. 🙂
Leather jacket: ross $22 this fall.
Jeans: ross last year for $10 or something.
Boots: found them shopping in downtown LA clothing district for $25.
Then, as I’m typing this up I look over and see my precious little Men of God with their daddy all watching “joseph” and munching chips together. Sweet ending to a busy day!
Oh, and fun story from today… I prayed before I went shopping that the Lord would bless my budget and help me find lots of sales and clearance items so I could afford everything I needed. I found shoes for my boys all on clearance at Ross, for $7.99 (cars shoes), $8.99 (batman) and cars lightup shoes for my little toddler for 12.99! Then, I was praying for cheap formula bc I didn’t have any coupons. At HEB I stumbled across a clearance shelf and found EIGHT cans of formula (the large size) marked down to $4!!! Actually, there were 9, so I bought 8. (I always feel bad totally clearing a shelf!) I plan to give a coupl to my sister when she comes in a couple months, and the rest should last us till this baby is old enough for milk! Hallelujah!!! I was so thrilled! I saved $106 on the formula, and who knows how much on the shoes! A moment of the Lord’s favor can accomplish more than hours of labor. 🙂 praise him!!
