BLOGGING BESTIES :: of a total steal

Last week, Maricel was exuberant in her stunning lace cardigan!

She gave me some creative prompts, including “a total steal/find (my ballet flats were a mere $9, an acquisition during Payless’ BOGO).” Challenge accepted! This purple graphic tee was a measly $2.78 from Old Navy (on clearance, plus an extra 30% off coupon). I also passed on skinnies, because I ❤ them. 😉


Next week, Whitney will pass on one of the elements of my outfit: purple, a graphic tee, skinnies, dark wash denim, roses, ballet wedges, and Buffalo check.

Graphic tee: Old Navy (similar)
Button down: Old Navy (similar)
Skinnies: Walmart (exact, in Meridian)
Shoes: Payless (similar)
Bracelet and charm: Gingersnaps (exact bracelet, exact charm)

OOTD :: of furry vests and a fabulous blue print





Because if this is to be my last TARDIS Tuesday offering for a while, I wanna go out with a bang.

So, furry vest = British because doesn’t it just scream “Carnaby Street in the 60s”? And this print = Doctor Who because, although floral in truth, doesn’t it also look like sunbursts and swirling galaxies and shooting stars as the TARDIS flies on by? And the color = blue because…well, it’s blue.

Yep, not only did I get all three of my prompts in this ensemble, I also meet the penultimate Create28 challenge with the vest. I’m all about the longline silhouette this season, which is odd since I’m so vertically challenged and you wouldn’t think I’d be able to get away with it. But I think the trick is pairing long layers with fab shoes and I did just that with my fave pair of Carlos Santanas. Yes, those are cut-outs in the heels. Aren’t they grand?

And you, my friends? Got anything British, blue or Doctor Who? Do click on the blue froggy one last time and tell…
