Wardrobe Wednesday - Royal Blue Blouse and Black Pencil Skirt


Imma thinking I may branch out of my comfort zone a little bit and start a "Wardrobe Wednesday" series here on the ole bloggy blog

I'm no fashionista by any means....I'm not ahead of the seasons.  I can't tell you what the new trends will be before they happen or rattle of information on designers....I'm just your average girl

I'm one of those girls who has good taste (I think?....I mean... I hope so!) and loves to admire clothes but I always think that it looks good on everyone else and that I can't pull off the look on myself.  Therefore I usually stick with the very basics of looks. 

That's where this experiment comes in.  I think having a weekly post to look forward to will make me step it up a little and try new things.  It would also be good to get some feedback from my fellow ladies about what works and what just doesn't.  I also think I don't accessorize enough and am very vanilla when it comes to jewelry.  I mainly wear my wedding ring (does that even count???)....and the same diamond stud earrings ALL. THE. TIME.  Maybe you all can tell me what's missing? Give me a little push in the right direction. 

One other thing....I work a kitchen job.  So that means 5 days out of the week I am in Dickies, non slip clogs, and a chefs coat. It's a sexy look.  That only leaves 2 days for me to get dressed for real....and even then I'm so flippin lazy I hardly wear more than a tshirt and jeans and ignore alot of my super cute clothes.  I think this will be a good way for me to utilize my will force me to get dressed. ;)

Another point is that I am a major cheap ass.  Like REALLY.  I hate when I'm on Pinterest and see a fabulous outfit only to realize it costs as much as my groceries for 2 weeks. No bueno.  So all my clothes I will be showing your are accessible to the average blue collar bitch like  myself 

So I'm going to give this thing a whirl and see what happens.  I'm not going to put too much pressure on the situation and if I miss a what! Who cares?

(for all my fellow SNL fans out there  Oh Fred Armisen how I am going to miss you so!!)

Bear with me while I figure this out and find my niche.  It may be a hot mess in the beginning until I figure it all out

First up is this little number I put together

Shirt: Ross
Skirt: IZ brand from Kohls
Shoes: Guess (Ross)

See what I mean about the lack of jewelry?  And I realized as I was posting this that you can hardly see the shirt because my giant lion mane takes over.  That's something I'll be watching for in future posts.   But over all I really like this outfit.  Cute and surprisingly comfy.  The old me would have worn boring old black heels but I figured the solid colors on top were the perfect opportunity to pull out a fun printed heel

Thoughts?  What jewelry should I have worn?


  1. I’m the same way with jewelry. I work at a pool 4 days a week and I can’t wear big chunky jewelry because it will get ruined or ripped out by one of my kids. I love stud earrings though..thats the one thing I can wear without trouble. I have found all kinds of different ones, hearts, triangle shaped diamonds, little owls, clocks. etc. With that outfit I think a big watch, say gold, would be cute. I know you can get big clunky watches at places like styles for less or forever 21. Oh and you look great btw!

  2. Omg, I made it into the blog!? Leggings are still my favorite things to wear ever! :)
