"Man Up" Time

I remember back in the day when I used to go thrift store shopping... or any shopping for that matter, I used to look for the most ridiculous patterns and prints. EVERYTHING had to be uber-unique. I'm sort of straying away from that as of late. I realize that lately especially, I've been reaching for those basic colors and cuts. 

But don't think I don't still get those unique items! I actually find that now I can USE THEM much more often than before. The trick is... utilizing those basics in a way that allows the unique items to pop. Don't get me wrong... I will still to this day utilize WAY too many items at once, but I'm definitely calming it down :)

So here you see me in a simple white men's tee, brown librarian skirt and then POP! teal leggings and cheetah shoes. (I also stole that brown belt from the bf to try and get more of a high-waisted paper bag look for the skirt)

Shirt - Target
Skirt - Thrifted
Belt - bf closet
Leggings - FABulous store in Colorado I can't remember the name of
Shoes - Charlotte Rouse (I know I know)


  1. great outfit! Nothing wrong with solid colors and then that pop of cheetah - well done! Glad to have stumbled upon your blog!

  2. the paper bag cut looks really fab on you, lady. (very jealous, btw, as such skirts look so comfy and yet never seem to agree with my shape. humph.)
