What I've been wearing lately

First things first- I am not a fashion blogger, not even close. I don't have the money or the closet space to be a fashion blogger. However, I like to think that when I put my mind to it, I can come up with a cute outfit or two. Now that I've gone through and cleaned out and reorganized my closet (which I still need to post about), it's been easier for me to see what I have and put outfits together each night for the next day.

Below are some of the photos I've posted on Instagram (sep0522) recently. Most of these outfits are what I wore to work. Fortunately I work for a company that doesn't have a strict dress code. So long as we don't have a client in the office or a meeting to go to we can wear jeans if we want to, however, I do enjoy dressing up a few times a week. If I look professional I feel more professional.

As I mentioned I'm not a fashion blogger and therefore do not have a record of where I've bought every article of clothing that I own but since I buy most of my clothes from Target, Old Navy and Forever 21 (what can I say? I'm on a budget) I was able to list everything below for these specific outfits.  Basically anything I wear that comes from a pricey store or has a designer label is a hand-me-down from my sister-in-law who has more expensive taste than I do.

 
Tank top - Old Navy
Sweater - Target
Pants - I've had FOREVER but probably Target
Shoes - Target

Dress- can't remember but I think Forever 21.

Scarf and Jeans F21
Sweater, Shirt and Boots- Target

As you can see I'm a bit obsessed with boots, cardigans, skinny jeans and scarves. Pretty much my uniform in the winter.
 
One of my favorite parts of Instagram (beside the photos of cute babies that make my uterus hurt) is seeing what other people are wearing which helps to give me outfit ideas.

You always look so nice! Even when I'm at my most dressed up, I never feel 'great' about what I'm wearing. I need a huge wardrobe update. We're getting a Target this spring, and I'm pretty excited about that. I've never been in one before.

You look great! I think you have good style :)

Heather said...

You look great! I wish I had as much style sense as you do, especially during the winter. I'm honestly a jean skirt, flip-flops and T-shirt kind of girl.

Stephanie said...

I think you look fantastic! And I love that you buy so many of your clothes from F21. I like that store too, just don't always have the patience to shop through what seems to me to be unorganized racks. I wish I could pull off the boots like you do!

I can't put together a nice outfit for work if it killed me. I hate buying work clothes because more often than not, I don't wear them any other time and what fun is that? I need you to pick out a new work wardrobe for me! Haha

love love love forever 21 and old navy! We have very similar taste in style.

Nat said...

Love all of your outfits! I've been living in leggings, cardigans and boots this winter!

I wore leggings the first time around and it's part of my refuse to wear a fashion twice though I broke this rule when pregnant. LOVE skinny jeans. It's like the universe decided to finally give me jeans that weren't too bulky and fit. I'm obsessed with the Rock Star jeans at Old Navy. I have a billion pairs it seems though each color fits differently which is weird. You look so cute with the little cardigans and belts. I can't pull those belts off. Tried once. Disastrous.

You look fantastic in every outfit!!! :) I have to say I am a bit jealous of your fashion sense and being able to put things together so well. I am awful with clothes and never wear anything very exciting, unless maybe a dress which doesn't take any real 'putting together'. You look great! :)

Stephanie said...

Love your look. And baby!!

Sean Marie said...

You are one sexy, stylish mama! I just love all your outfits and love that most of 'em are from Target.

Sara said...
