I'm trying something new in the avenue of belts today. My daughter whom helps me with this project has been telling me that it was getting boring everyday with the cardigan and belt. When the ladies over at academichic got this challenge, I decided to try and play along. I like this look, it is a replay of middle school fashion with Daisy Duke in the mix.
I get frustrated when I'm in my closet because jeans are such a staple item in my lifestyle. I CAN"T get away from them. I started this blog to try to get away from jeans, but I am realizing that is just not practical in this stage of my life. I decided to embrace and appreciate the fact that I don't have to go to work everyday, and what a blessing it is to be able to stay home with my kids. Thank You Awesome Husband, I LOVE you! In light of that I am redefining my mission with this blog to "dress up my jeans". I want to put to use new fashion trends and principles with a casual spin. As much as I would love to wear skirts and dresses everyday, SAHM's just can't.(or maybe I just can't) Vacuuming, dusting and poopy diapers don't allow it most days.
My revised goal: to be denim less at least twice a week.
I hope my blog doesn't get to boring. :) I apologize in advance.
