It is time for day 2 of the small wardrobe style challenge. If you did not see yesterday’s post, go here, and see how I styled a plain gray sweater and a pair of maroon pants. I told my sister on the telephone this morning that I was worried about doing this post. I was afraid everyone would say, “Come on already, we’ve seen the sweater and pants, show us something different.” I couldn’t have been more wrong! You gurls are so supportive with this challenge. I only hope that I can pull it off. Lol!Before we continue, I have just got to show you this!!! I went to the mailbox this afternoon and there was a package inside addressed to me. I didn’t get too excited because Joe is the Ebay KING. The account is in my name, so I get packages all the time but they are really his. When I saw the return address was from South Africa I started doing a happy dance. You should have heard me squeal. Petra, a follower, emailed me quite a while back just to say hi. In her email, I noticed that she had a web page, so I decided to check it out. I saw that she had gorgeous handmade greeting cards and I emailed her asking if she sold the cards. I offered to put her cards on the blog and see if others would be interested in purchasing her cards. She was thrilled that I liked her cards, but she had never sold them, she only gives them out to friends. A couple weeks later she asked for my address, so I thought she was going to send me a card. I was blown away when I opened the package and saw all the goodies. She sent me loads of beautiful cards, a couple tea towels and a table top scarf that she had made, plus some chocolate! Oh my goodness, I was speechless. I have had companies gift me with items, but they want something in return. I think this is the first time I have ever received something from a reader just because they liked my blog. I will admit that I shed a tear or two. Thank you, Petra, you made my day😘I changed my jewelry, purse, and shoes, this is what I mean by subtle wardrobe changes. I added a topper piece, and the whole look is now different.
The plaid jacket is fairly new, I bought it a couple weeks ago at Cato Fashions. This is a perfect jacket for the fall, it is lightweight and the colors just scream fall. I wore this same blazer/jacket a couple weeks ago with a pencil skirt, see here. You can dress this jacket up or wear it casual, and since it is on sale for 15.99, you had better hop on over and see if they still have your size. Haha
I left on my Mason earrings from Plunder, but I have changed up the necklace. This is the first piece of Plunder that I bought. My friend Tiffany (who sells Plunder) came into the lumber company wearing this necklace. She said that she had just gotten it that day. I told her I wanted it, and I wanted it right then. She just laughed, took it off, and said she would order her another one. That is how I got hooked! This necklace is called the Tarah, and it is very showy. This is a heavy duty necklace, there is nothing cheap about this necklace. I am wearing the perfect boots for fall. This is called the Bethesda and it is by White Mountain. White Mountain is a brand that I have purchased many times in the past, so when they asked me to do a collaboration, I was pretty happy. If you have ever purchased a pair of shoes from this company, then you know about the quality and the comfort. What caught my eye from the beginning was the color. I am calling this fawn, but on their website they call it grey. It is a mix of brown and grey, like a taupe. This is a true suede boot with a 2.5 inch heel. They feature a half zipper and pull tabs at the top to help with getting them on and off. These boots are already on sale but use the code FLAVOR25 and enjoy another 25% off.
I am not sure I would have put this tote with this outfit. I picked it because of the colors in the necklace, but it is almost too MUCH of a pop of color. This is another no name purse that I picked up from a vendor in town. I liked the color, and I liked the style alright. I don’t usually like a bucket bag, but the color convinced me to spend the 40.00.
I hope you liked my small wardrobe style challenge outfit #2. This has been pretty fun so far, but I am afraid it will get tougher as the week goes on. Lol! Let me hear your comments.
