A Hint of Neon

Happy Friday!

I think this shirt would have to be one of my favorites…For one, I think it’s really unique because of the little neon yellow rectangles and the aqua color. It’s also super comfortable and great for rolling the sleeves and tying the front, like I did in this outfit. And the best part? Drumroll please…It was only $7! Can you believe that? I found it on major sale in the JCPenney clearance section. I have a lot of blue and turquoise things in my closet, so this shirt goes with a lot.

I’ve worn this outfit to school before and to lunch with my friends. I love it because it’s not super dressy, but it’s also not too casual, which makes it really versatile. The knot in the shirt makes it a little more flirty, and the sandals keep it dressed down for summer.

 

Blouse: JCPenney, $7

Dress worn as Skirt: Kohl’s, $36

Shoes: Younker’s, $20

Polka Dot Paradise

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

If there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love polka dots. What’s not to love? It’s such a fun and happy print.

I wore this outfit while on vacation in Iowa. It looks like a romper, but it’s actually two pieces. I wore it for a day of exploring the town and out to dinner at a restaurant on the Mississippi River.

I actually got the shorts and blouse at Kohl’s from Lauren Conrad’s Disney Collection last summer. I don’t shop at Kohl’s very often, but sometimes I make a quick pass through the store. The blouse and shorts had cost more than what I would usually spend, but they were just too cute to resist. The details on the outfit are so adorable, from the scalloped collar to the bow on the shorts. The set also came in red and white, but I decided that combo was too “Minnie Mouse” for me.

 

Blouse: Kohl’s, $36

Shorts: Kohl’s, $36

Shoes: Target, $15

Bangle Set: Cost Plus World Market, $12

Purse: unknown boutique in Las Vegas airport, $30

Sunglasses: gift

A Fashion Blog is Born…

Hi everyone! My name is Grace and this is my first blog post—ever! I’m so excited to finally start a fashion blog. It has been a dream of mine for years now, and I just can’t believe that it’s finally happening.

As you can read on my About page, I’ve started this blog to bring affordable and practical fashion inspiration to women. In every outfit post, I will say where I bought each item, how much I paid for each article of clothing, and where I wore the outfit as proof that the outfits I create are both affordable and practical for the average woman.

On my blog, you’ll notice that I re-wear a lot of the same pieces in new and interesting ways. I’m a firm believer in getting my money’s worth out of clothes, so I’m not the type of person who wears a piece only once. You’ll also notice that I don’t wear high heeled shoes very often. I love a good pair of heels as much as the next girl, but they just don’t fit into my lifestyle.

I’m so glad you’ve stumbled upon this blog, and I’d love for you to join me on this journey!
