TGFT....Thank goodness for thrifting!

just my style 1012just my style 1008just my style 1015
I am so obsessed with the comfort and style of the "boyfriend jean". I decided to give it a whirl with the khaki! I think it adds a little something more to the look and I am incredibly happy with the results. It also doesn't hurt that this ensemble is the result of some serious bargain shopping...nice cheap clothes always make it that much sweeter!

Khaki: Gap...thrifted $1
Sandals: Old Navy....clearance $8

Sleep Deprived.....

just my style 954just my style 964just my style 952
I've had these skinny jeans tucked away in the closet for months now. I just joined Weardrobe and while perusing the site fell in love with (yet another new look for me) boots over the jeans look. Took a chance, dusted off the skinny jeans and gave it a whirl!

**No post yesterday, awesome husband took the day off and whisked me away for our 11th year anniversary! We flew down to the peninsula and had a fantastic day of just hanging out, we never get to just dink around with no agenda. We ended up hooking up with some friends later in the day and ended up fishing ALL NIGHT! Surviving with about 3 hrs of sleep here! Well worth it though, I had a great day with my most awesome man.

Love these jeans....

just my style 888just my style 883just my style 904

If I had to pick out a favorite pair of jeans that I own, this pair would be one of the finalist's. They make me feel like a tough girl/rebel...which I am definitely NOT! It's fun to pretend though. I tried to take the tough girl look a little further today with the black and silver accessories, the off kilter button job, and the bare shoulder. :)

Is anyone else feeling the fall vibe of this outfit? I have to say it felt great slipping into a pair of tight and boots. Fall is approaching and I am not so opposed to the idea. It has been an incredible summer but thoughts of crunchy leaves, brisk air, cozy evenings, and sipping hot tea while snuggled into the couch seem to be invading my mind these days.

day trip casual.....

just my style 832just my style 810just my style 825

I'm wearing my "boyfriend jeans" again today and I think I love them even more than last time! I had to drive about an hour and a half one way to pick up my daughter from camp so I wanted to be comfy for the long day in the car. GEEZ, I missed her, I am so glad she's home. On the way home we pulled over and she snapped a few shots for the blog.

double pockets...

just my style 804just my style 799just my style 808

Maybe I am just not up to date on there new styles of cardigans and their pockets. I recently ordered this cardigan from the J-Crew final sale. I really love the short sleeves and the retro print but when I put it on I noticed that there are two small pockets, one on top of the other on the right hand side. There are no pockets on the left. Is this a manufacturer oopsie or is it supposed to be this way? I am going to believe it is supposed to be that way for an interesting twist! :)

I am so exited that so many of you like the jeans. Thanks for entering and don't forget if you re-post the contest on your blog it will earn you an extra entry. Make sure to let me know when you do.

I want these!!!


I am a HUGE cupcake fan and seriously these could be the most RAD cupcakes EVER!!!!!

Here is a little secret about me....get ready.....

I played The original Mario Brother's for hours and hours and HOURS when I was a kid, but was never was able to save the princess. Pathetic, I know...I may be the only kid on the planet to never conquer level 8:4


just my style 794just my style 792just my style 789

It is cold and blustery ouside today. I needed comfort this morning. I have not done the "boyfriend jean" look yet. I have been on the prowl for a pair at the thrift store and a couple of weeks ago I hit the jackpot!!! I found these Seven for all Mankind's in the mens section for $3.50!!! I was stoked. The only thing that could have made it better was if it had been on $1 day. I love this look and am wondering how I can replicate it without doing the exact same thing. I am also wondering if I need to do a little distressing to the jeans. Any ideas?

Thrift store bravery.....

just my style 787just my style 788just my style 785
This is a great example of the "thrift store bravery". I saw this top(or whatever it is) at the thrift store on $1 day and thought ....why not, it's only a dollar! I like the look, comfort and thriftiness of the outfit, my only concern is that I may look preggers or wearing a mu-mu! What do you think...Yay or Nay?

Weekend getaway...

just my style 762just my style 770just my style 759

Here are a couple examples of my attire on the weekends. We own a cabin up in the Talkeetna mountains that is bordered by two creeks. It is fantabulous to have somewhere to getaway from it all and just be. We fly there most every weekend in the summer and try to snowmachine out to it as much as possible in the winter. I LOVE my magenta alaska shirt. It was designed by a local guy here and I bought it at a "fly in" (small planes fly to a designated place for a show) in Valdez. Can you spot all of the things hidden in the state.....This shirt sums up my blessed life. Have fun hunting.....

* There are at least ten specific activities/objects hidden in my shirt.
