I like it!

So when my fiance saw me today he laughed at my outfit! That made me a bit upset, but who cares what he thinks, you should see some of his outfits!!! At any rate, I initially said that I wanted to take risks, and I think this outfit is kind of risky, in that you either love it or you hate it. In addition to taking risks, this outfit is about see I have on several layers on account of the fact that there are actual snow flurries in Alabama!! That is crazy, this very rarely happens (for those unfamiliar with AL weather). Also this is only the second time I've worn this gray and white dress, I can't really decide what to do with it. I mean I like it, but the first time I wore it, I actually wore it as a dress, which I don't believe I'll do again because it's just a bit too short to go it alone. So, I've been struggling with it. This is what I came up with, but I do plan on trying to work it a little bit more. So, if you don't like it, I was very warm!!!

My Outfit:
Black button up shirt- $10, Express
Gray/White dress/tunic- $5, Ross
Green jacket- $7, TJ Maxx
Dark denim jeans- $9, TJ Maxx
White tights (unseen)- $4, (George) Walmart
Rain boots- $15, Target via a friend
Belt-$2, thrifted
Earrings- $3, Walmart
Necklace- $3, Walmart
Total Cost- $58

I literally just fell into these boots. A friend of mine was telling me that she was going to return some boots that she had gotten at target, she got to talking about them, and I asked what size they were- my size!! At any rate I bought them off her for the price she paid! The best part is that I've been looking for a pair of rain boots (but I'm cheap so haven't found any "good" enough for me) and tada they're mine!


  1. Um, well I'd say you are taking risks w/this outfit and I don't mean that as a bad thing. I'm from central CA and I often see a dress worn over jeans, like this. I wonder if a different jacket would work better. Now as to what jacket, I don't know (lol) but I'm thinking that since you're all dressed w/layers for warmth, the little jacket doesn't go w/that look. But, for what it's worth, I'm just starting on my own style/fashion journey, so I may not be the best judge.

  2. Ha,ha I like, I like ! This outfit is fabulous, it suits my sense of fashion fun ! I would definitly wear it ! Also a tan handbag would be perfect with this !
    Love your blog btw !

  3. I like it too! (and my husband often laughs at my outfits - I take it as a compliment, it means I'm not dressing as dull as he does lol)

  4. I love it! Very creative!That's actually really cool.
