The debut of my legs to the warm, springtime air (I'm really making a big deal about this...) did not go quite as planned. In the morning we discovered that our wild hearted cat, Stella was missing. He must have snuck out, that ingrate, when I came home quite late the night before. So instead of leisurely planning my outfit, I was walking up and down the street in half of my outfit from the night before and my faithful yellow track pants. I looked like a total crazy woman, especially when no less than 4 cats came out to me as I was calling, none of which were Stella...
Hair? not all mine...
Skirt? Zara, final sales $15
Crochet shirt? Ralph Lauren, thrifted $3
Shoes? Frye, Winners, final sales $36
Purse? thrifted, $6
Bangles? thrifted and gifted
Belt? Fossil, consignment credit
So it didn't as expected but thankfully I had a back-up outfit on my mind (these are important to have... don't knock it until you try it. And no, your Uggs and leggings are not a back-up outfit... ). And then the back-up plan ends up becoming one of my favourite outfits ever! I felt pretty awesome in this outfit all day. The best part is that this whole look is the perfect merge of my shopping styles... all thrifted or bought at the bitter end of seasonal sales. A few of the accessories were gifts, worn to prove to myself that I do still have real-life friends, as opposed to just my blogging buddies.
P.S. A neighbour brought Stella home...
