what I wore; green, brown and tan!

Monday, March 26, 2012

the details
shirt - thrifted / vintage
sweater - Sears
belt - thrifted
skirt - thrfited
socks - Target
boots - Kmart

There are not enough occasions to wear this amazing belt. It's a hairball too thick to fit in most of my skirts belt loops so I rarely get to wear it.  But how stinken' awesome is it?! The pocket doesn't really fit much but since I always carry some sort of lip balm on me, this is perfect. 

I'm still obsessed with these boots. I bought a pair in every color that Kmart had ($13.99 on sale!!) They're actually surprisingly great quality. I also really appreciate any pair of shoes that I can wear out in the woods then just wipe off with a wet rag when I get home. I'm prone to getting dirty no matter where I go!

Hope you're having an awesome Monday. I can't believe it's the last week of March! I'm spending my morning working on April's blog agenda and watching SNL from the 90's on netflix.
xoxo

  10. I hear Kmart has pretty good sales on shoes: my boss buys all her boots there! The belt? Totally the best thing I've seen today. It's too bad you can't wear it often!

  13. Umm...yep. That belt is pretty dang amazing. I love belts with little pouches like that - even if they're only big enough to fit lip balm!

  14. I had to comment just to support SNL from the 90s. I didn't get TV until high school, and when I did, I spent an entire summer inside, absorbing SNL reruns.

  15. How long ago did you get those boots from Kmart? I love them so much! I used to work there and the shoes were always nice- my kmart shoes get more complements than my trendier shop shoes, haha.

    1. Maybe two months ago? A month ago? I'm not 100% sure. Good luck finding some, hopefully they still have them.
