Orange & Distressed

Spring is in the air! A few weeks ago, I started my search for the perfect light washed distressed denim for the spring. And after a long hard search, I didn't find them. And then, when I least expected it, I found the perfect ones! I got them at Gap on a 40% off day, so they ended up being about $40. I know right?! Awesome. This shirt was on the sale rack (in Gap), and because it had a small stain on the collar, it was marked damaged and brought down to $15! Originally $69, can you say steal!! 

I love love love my tassel necklace and spiked bracelet. But I still don't have the bracelet (or necklace) collection that I would like to have. I wanted a colorful bracelet to pair with the gorgeous orange top, and I didn't have one, so I found a piece that had the color I wanted. It was one of my necklaces! And I thought to myself, "Why haven't I thought of this before?" I worked SO well! So you will definitely start seeing some more posts with necklaces featured as bracelets!

And those denim sneakers I got at you'll never guess where . . . Wal-Mart!! And they were only $6. Sometimes, I get embarrassed when shopping at Wal-Mart, because let's face it, most of the time, we don't want to admit to people that we got that top from Wally World. But after finding some great pieces for less than a third of the price I would pay for them in the retail world, I started to overcome that fear. And truthfully, they are not the worst quality in the world. A few years ago, I got a red pair of sneakers for about $7, and they are still kicking. So don't underestimate the big W.

So ladies (and gents!), things to glean from this post: 

1. Keep searching for that perfect pair of jeans,they WILL come around 
2. Don't be afraid to mix up how you normally style your jewelry
3. Don't be embarrassed of where you shop! A deal is a deal, and a cute top is a cute top.

Have a great day! And remember that you are unique and beautiful in your own way!
