Changing the Rules

 Forever 21 top, Urban Outfitters cardigan, Target leggings, thrifted shoes, Chelsea's purse, New York and Company scarf

I just now realized how much brown and black/grey I'm mixing with this outfit! It used to be such a fashion "no, no" for me but now... pfft, I do what I want! Continuing with reflecting on today's outfit, I find that it includes three of my most amazing bargains! My scarf was originally $36 and I bought it for $4. My boots, $30 at Target and found at Goodwill for $6. And finally, my cardigan was originally $59 and I got it for $9!

Comment below and let me know what your best bargains have been!

Messing it Up

A couple years ago, whenever I did up my hair, I always wanted to make sure it was perfect. I thought perfectly straight, shiny hair, plastered to my head was the only way to wear it. And when putting my hair up into a pony tail or a bun, not a hair could be out of place! Oh how my feelings have changed! I now find myself in the mornings embracing second day hair by teasing it and messing it up just to try and achieve this effortless look! Ha! It's amazing how much makeup we put on to get a "natural" looking face and how much time we spend trying to get an "effortless" style.
