Ladies Room Fashion Show

Top layer top: Plato’s Closet
Bottom layer top: Thrifted
Jeans: Old Navy
Boots: Crocs

I threw this outfit together in a hurry when our little group decided to go out for dinner instead of cooking in Saturday night. I’m a sucker for the t-shirt over a long sleeved white shirt look, but this is just a little bit more grown up. I’m excited to use this shirt to transition into a spring wardrobe in a couple of months!  Yes, this mirror is FILTHY and if you look close, you can see Ariel in the background :).

Dress: Thrifted
Shirt: Gap Outlet
Belt: Thrifted
Leggings: Wal-Mart
Boots: JC Penny

I so very much loooooove this dress. It’s super comfy and yet it has a dressy look. And it looks pretty when I twirl. I added the orange chevron belt (out of a scarf) upon the advice of my awesome readers and I have to say, I think it looks pretty darn good. I wanted to tie it all together with an orange bracelet that my husband brought me back from Africa but when I put it on I realized it needed to be restrung. Ah, well.

Top: Thrifted
Skirt: New York & Company (a million years ago)
Tights: Payless
Shoes: Payless
Bracelet: Lia Sophia

I felt very professional in this outfit. This sweater always makes me feel good about myself and I received several compliments on this outfit. There’s an older teacher at my school who dresses really hip–any time she compliments my outfit I’m on top of the world. I can only hope I can dress as cool as her when I’m her age.

An actual ladies room picture! Why so surprised in this picture?? Matt and I got to go on an unexpected weeknight date to see War Horse. We’ll try to see all 9 of the Best Picture nominees–3 down, 6 to go! Next time I’ll go with a dress and leggings for the movies, soooooo much more comfy than jeans and knee high boots.

Top: Thrifted
Jacket: Garage Sale
Belt: Thrifted
Pants: Thrifted
Boots: JC Penny

This is it! This is the inspiration outfit!! I do feel like it looked better than it photographed. As I mentioned in my sneak peak, this outfit didn’t really get to see the light of day. Be looking for it to reappear in the coming weeks! And weigh in on if you think I look more like Snow or Han Solo!

Hat: Goorin Bros

Top Layer Top: Plato’s Closet
Bottom Layer Top: Betsy Walker fan tee
Jeans: Hand me down from my skinny friend, Christy

Just because you’re stuck in the house with sick kids doesn’t mean that you have to scrub it out. I spent my Christmas money on some awesome hats from Goorin Bros. My hair’s waaaaaay to short for a pony tale, but it’s nice to have a slack-off day option. This is my first hat from Goorin Bros and I was really impressed with their customer service and quality of hats.  Be looking for more Goorin Bros hats to be making appearances in upcoming Ladies Room Fashion Show posts!

Cardigan: unexpected gift from my sweet friend, Suse
Tank: Target
Pants: Thrifted, repurposed into Skinnys
Shoes: gift from my SIL

My awesome friend Sue surprised me with this sweater in the mail yesterday! I love the color and the pattern. I decided to do something crazy today and not wear boots. I know, I am as shocked about it as you are. I love this outfit, though, and I felt great in it all day.

I can’t believe it’s Friday already or that this is my fourth ladies room fashion show! What did you think of this week outfits? Or any of them hits or misses??

Ladies Room Fashion Show

One of my favorite blogs, Dear Baby, used to have a weekly post called “Ladies Room Fashion Show” that I loved.  Melissa would share her weekly outfits for better or for worse (although I always thought she looked fabulous).  In the past couple of years, I’ve become increasingly interested in fashion.  I’ll blog more about that sometime soon.  Now that I have my own captive audience (that would be you.  How are you doing, by the way? Can I get you something to drink or maybe a pillow? You should really take your left hand off your face, it isn’t good for your skin.) I thought I’d give my own Ladies Room Fashion Show a try.  Here are a couple of this week’s outfits.

Top: Old Navy (Christmas present)
Pants: ?? Probably thrifted
Boots: JC Penny Day-After-Thanksgiving sale

Not super sure about these pants. They’re a bit short when they’re not tucked into boots and I don’t like the bunching around the knees. The chances of them being repurposed into skinny pants is high.

Shirt: Old Navy (before kids, it’s oooold)
Dress: Thrifted
Leggings: Target–compression pants
Boots: JC Penny Day-After-Thanksgiving Sale

Yup, those are compression pants and they made a HUGE difference in the way my leg felt at the end of the day. This dress is one of my all-time favorite thrifted finds. When I don’t know what to wear, I can throw it on and instantly look put-together. Or at least put-together for me :). My mother would say that this dress needs heeled boots, and she’d be right, but it’s not happening today–maybe next week, PJ.

Top: Gap outlet
Dress: Thrifted, reworked a bit
Leggings: Wal-Mart
Boots: Croc outlet (BOGO w/my fabulous SIL)

Some mornings I know exactly what I want to wear. Today was one of those mornings….but I couldn’t find my grey leggings, so, this. Another go-to dress that I love. Don’t tell anyone, but this outfit is so comfortable it feels like pajamas. I really shouldn’t be allowed to wear it to work it’s so comfortable. And dont even get me started on the boots. I love these boots. It’s an internal battle not to wear them every day.

I did worry that my new student teacher would think I was a hippie who lives in a van, though.

Top: Target (Christmas gift from my momma)

Jeans: Old Navy (Christmast gift from my SIL)

Boots:  JC Penny Day-After-Thanksgiving Sale

The boots are more light suede than they appear in the picture, I promise.  Today was YET ANOTHER day when I knew exactly what I wanted to wear and even laid it out the night before only to have my best-laid (out–HA!) plans foiled.  Again.  Cut to me scrambling around, cut to this shirt laying on the floor near me when I realized my first shirt wasn’t going to work for school (it’s been relegated to the “Date Night Only” category) and cut to me throwing it on and running out the door.  I have got to get this closet cleaned up, folks.  And maybe try on outfits the night before.

So that’s all for this week’s Ladies Room Fashion Show.  What did you think? Did you like it? Hate it? Think it was okay?  Is this the type of post you’d like to see on a weekly basis???  Leave some comments & let me know!!
