It took me thirty minutes and countless outfit changes to figure out what to wear this morning. Why? Because all my tights and leggings mysteriously disappeared following our move, except for two almost identical pairs of black tights. Add that to the fact that David and I both worked extra hours this week and we're a bit behind on laundry. Mix in the fact that I am a bit lacking on winter clothing and it snowed last night. Yep, that's the perfect recipe for "I have NOTHING to wear."
But once I found this outfit, it was perfect, and I loved it. Additional bonus: this entire outfit, including the boots was way less than $100. Sweater: thrifted (new with tags). Skirt: thrifted. Boots: on sale at Payless. Usually I prefer to spend a bit more on shoes since those from Payless don't tend to last too long but these have lasted three years as my go-to winter boots (they will need to be replaced soon though). The belt came with a suit skirt I bought a while back. The cami was on sale at the Ann Taylor outlet and was by far the most expensive piece in the entire outfit. My tights I've had since high school and I can guarantee they weren't pricey, and even if they were, they've been worn so many times that they probably average less than a cent per wear. To be honest, this really isn't so amazing. I promise unless I wear my wedding dress (or I win the lottery), you won't see any outfit over $150 on this blog.
While we are on the topic of fashion, I also want to mention that these Sunday link ups have landed me the distinction of being called a fashion blogger, a Catholic fashion blogger to be specific. Check out the cute little button in my sidebar. To see more Catholic fashion bloggers (or to see about joining the list yourself), check out It's Fun to Be a Girl.
