So I'm back in a shopping mood (finally) since I haven't really given two hoots about hitting the stores since last fall. I felt I had everything that I "needed" and not much was speaking to me. But no more! One can only wear black/brown/black for so long. I've got NEW inspiration...bring on the color kids!
Ka-chow! That's a lot of color..and I'll admit it sort of intimidates me, but I broke down and grabbed some mint-green skinny jeans ($19.99 from Winners) and a cobalt blue pair from Old Navy ($20.00 on sale this week). I'm naturally a black on the bottom, color up top sort of dresser but I think this is worth a try for this summer...I can't hide in black forever!
Zip it ok?...This is just a regular Dolman sleeve top in a bright turquoise green but the zipper detail (on the back) makes it interesting, no? I grabbed these metallic flats, since metallics are the shiz this season...so they say...
(Top, Zellers $14.99, flats Zellers $12.99)
Color blocking and Zippers? Yes and yes. (Bottom Block top, Suzy Shier $25.00)
For that wedding/baby shower I'll inevitably have to attend, Pleated, Belted, Chiffon Dress in Navy, (Suzy Shier $40.00)
So are you all still hiding in your fleece and Uggs? I don't blame you if you are...its hard to shed the layers and show some skin. Mama needs a tan something terrible but that's not going to be an option for months yet.
I even have a hard time ditching socks and wearing flats -never mind sandals? What if it starts snowing again...that can happen at ANY GIVEN MOMENT in these parts...
Have you caught the spring shopping fever yet...are color/short sleeves/bare legs calling your name?
