So how did you fare in all the holiday shopping madness? I scored a few great deals yesterday on Cyber Monday but ultimately passed on the lamest gift for myself – a Dyson vacuum cleaner. Lame right? Sorry but our dog is black and sheds. Too bad that closeout Macy’s one was all sold out. I settled for grabbing some gifts for some of my favorite people.
Now that all my gift madness is out there, I’m going to settle back into my regular posting routine. First up, this casual look from my inspiration board. What I lack in model looks and ease, I try to make up for in silly smiles and enthusiasm over my new favorite top. I decided against the collar (they never look right on me) and opted for this soft number with a bold necklace. Since the weather has been all topsy turvy, this trench was all I need the last couple days although I know it will be back to bundling up in no time flat.
If you’re like me and trying to stretch the clothes in your closet so you can save up for gifts, I definitely recommend combing Pinterest for some solid inspiration. Every time I get lost on there, I find tons of looks that can easily be recreated with things I already own. Gotta save up for that fancy vacuum, ya know? Yeah right, I’m saving up for a new bag first.
