If I was a creative person, today’s outfit would have been totally 80′s Molly Ringwald. I, however, did not think outside of the box (or maybe it was in the box?) when I thought about today’s theme. I just figured everyone was wearing pink things…oh well.
I could pretend I was channeling Molly Ringwald with my oversized pink blazer? (Just spent 10 minutes trying to Google Molly Ringwald in a pink blazer with no success) We’ll have to use our imagination then.
Do you ever have those days where you just can’t find anything to wear? Today was one of those days. That is why this post is about five hours late. I took apart my whole room trying to put together an outfit and failed. So naturally I went to eat. Food helps sometimes. After breakfast I was inspired (or maybe I just gave up on trying) and put together this simple outfit.
I’m wearing: Blazer – Value Village $5.99, Leggings- Gift, Shirt – Winners, Sandals – Value Village $6.99, Guess Purse- Gift. Necklace – Handmade.
I thought I’d pose with Lola because of her pink collar. Okay that’s not really why. I just think I have the cutest bestest dog ever and I wanted the world to see. She finally reluctantly accepted a kiss or two…
My sandals were purchased at Value Village Brampton this week. I was slightly hesitant about them because they reminded me of my grandma’s sandals. Alas the comfort level and quality leather allowed me to look past their senior citizen footwear status.
This blazer is now my favorite layering piece. In the Fall and Winter it was rendered useless due to the extreme cold we had. It was too thin to act as a coat and too thick to wear under one. It has now found it’s home in my Spring wardrobe!
Thrifty threads aside, if you read my last post, you would know that I’m doing a grain-free challenge this week. I’ll also have you know, that I’m failing it. Am I discouraged and disgusted by my lack of self-control?!? Not really. I cheated only three times all week and they were small portions. I went from eating grains 3-6 times a day to 3 times in almost a week. Not bad if I do say so myself. It became a fun challenge, trying to find alternatives to eat. My mom and I have been making juices with various fruits and vegetables every day and I’ve been eating a lot of salads, nuts and have even tried out taking soy in my lattes instead of milk (okay, has nothing to do with grains, but have been trying to change my overall diet). This morning I made amazing pancakes that could technically be categorized as an omelette. I’ll be sharing the super complicated recipe tomorrow :)
You know the drill :)
