Fashion post {9/21/12}

     After almost 2 years of blogging, here is my first fashion post!! As you can see from the pictures it's still summer weather here in NC, yay! I'm posting this on a Saturday but this was my outfit for Friday, September 21.

  • Shirt: Dillard's (September 2012)
  • Shorts: Macy's (Summer 2011)
  • Necklace: Goodwill (Summer 2009)
  • Shoes: Sears (2008 or 2009)

     I am in love with this navy top that I'm wearing form Dillard's! It's a peplum top and I love that trend. It's made of very light material which is good to wear in Southern humidity (still something that this Maine girl is getting used to!). I found it on a clearance rack a few weeks ago. Clearance shopping is the best! Dillard's itself is just amazing. We don't have any back home.

     Macy's, where I got my shorts, is the closest thing that we have to Dillard's in New England. While Macy's can be very pricy you can get good deals here. I can't remember how much my shorts were last summer, but I do like my white shorts. They're a nice change from denim and they aren't super short. The only bummer is that it's easy to stain them!

     My necklace was only .99 cents at Goodwill a few years ago. It's very blingy and "out there" which is totally my style. Goodwill is an awesome place to find jewelry at! A lot of times the jewelry that they sell is new, it'll just be stuff that didn't sell at other stores that ends up there, still with tags and in packaging. Such was the case with this necklace. I went to sleep-away camp in 2009 and my mom took me to Goodwill to find some cheap jewelry for camp. That way I could accesorize my basic t-shirts and shorts and not have to worry about losing anything while there! You can't beat .99 cents. :-)

     I found these sandals on a clearance rack at Sears 4 or 5 years ago. I'm not really a Sears fan, a lot of their clothing is cheaply made and not really my style. However these sandals were a great buy! I love the pretty gems on them, and since they're multicolored they go with everything.

     What did y'all think of my first fashion post? Should I do more of them? I thought that it was a lot of fun! Shoutout to my college friend M for taking this pictures!

     Have a blessed weekend!

  1. Definitely dO more fashion posts!!!!! I love that top. I've never been to Dillard's though. Not sure if there are any out here in California. It's just like a department store or something? We have Macy's of course so I'm imagining it like that. :)

  2. Made a typo in the last comment -.-
