Recent Outfits

I was all set to post pictures of all of my pieces of clothing in my closet featuring horses on them, but never got around to taking the pictures. So, I guess that post will run in a couple of days. Until then… I snapped some pictures of some outfits worn in the last week. There is no theme. No rhyme or reason to them… Just pieces I felt like wearing.

I am wearing a Johnny Was dress I purchased recently from Nordstrom Rack. I paired it with my Anthropologie Glasswork Obi Belt. I cannot believe how well these two went together. The trim of the belt matched the trim of the dress perfectly. I love when happy accidents like that happen! The belt was almost double the price of the dress. Go figure… I am also wearing my vintage frye cowboy boots. You cannot see my earrings, but they are little round glass orbs from Anthropologie that I purchased from ebay for $10. I wore this to my son’s open house. I received a lot of compliments, which made me feel good.

I am wearing a recent popback from Anthropologie that I scored. They are the pilcro stet pants in mustard. They were originally $98 and I paid $30. The shirt is one I bought last summer from an Anthropologie sale, called Anthropologie Sealife Tunic. Here is a link so you can see what it looks like without a jacket. My earrings were a recent lovely afterthought from Target. The denim jacket was purchased over a year ago at Nordstrom Rack. My shoes are so old, I cannot remember where I purchased them. I do remember they were $7.50. They are a little big, but for that price, I can hobble around happily.

I cannot decide if I look a little crazy in this outfit. Sometimes my idea of a fun outfit can be taken to the extreme. I purchased this Juicy Couture mini pleated skirt in purple from Nordstrom Rack recently. It was 75% off.

Here is the deal, it was the only one left. It was a size 4. I cannot breathe. I am happy to do so. I purchased the little tulle skirt I am wearing underneath it from the Nordstrom Rack clearance rack almost a year ago. It was $10, down from $50. I could not decide what I was going to do with it, but I figured I could always use it to make a mini skirt a little longer. It is lined in a black slip. This makes wearing a short skirt much more manageable.

I am wearing an Anthropologie top from last year with the skirt. It has little french bulldogs all over it. It was called Here & There Tee. The belt is a Moroccan belt from a local boutique. I am also wearing my Frye cowboy boots. The earrings are the Anthropologie ebay glass drops.

The great thing about this skirt is, it is a small enough size that my daughter can wear it. She is a size zero, so she safety pins the edges. I figured if I ever feel too old to wear it, it can become hers. My husband might think I am all ready there, because he said the following in response to seeing this outfit: “Great, all of your dreams have come true. You now look like a kindergartner.” Hmmmm… Maybe he is right, but life is too short to not have fun.

What has been your favorite outfit you have worn this week?

Thank you for stopping by and reading. I am very grateful for it.

  3. I’m so jealous re the Johnny Was dress. It is SO cute on you! I had only seen Johnny Was in my Neiman Marcus catalogs and always admired but never purchased due to the price. Thank you for posting that JW is sold at Nordstrom Rack. My daughter and I went there a few days ago and I spotted and fell in love with the dress you’re wearing. Only it wasn’t my size. 🙁 I love seeing how you put outfits together. Great idea to put the black and purple together and you do NOT look like a kindergartner. 🙂

    • Thank you! That is so flattering. I am so bummed for you that they did not have that dress in the correct size. Were you able to find anything fun at Nordstrom Rack, anyway? I hope so!

      Thank you for saying I do not look like a kindergartner! That is a big fear of mine, but I really just want to have fun!

      I hope you have a Wonderful day tomorrow! Thank you for always reading and leaving such sweet comments.
