What did you wear this Wednesday?

Hello everyone, Happy Wednesday! Just think, the week is half over now! I don’t know about you but I know that Wednesdays are rough for a lot of people for different reasons but don’t let that effect how you dress!! When I woke up this morning I wasn’t feeling so hot and because of that I really just wanted to wear an over-sized t-shirt and my boyfriends hoodie to school. As soon as that thought came into my mind, I realized that putting a different shirt on and fixing my hair a little bit wasn’t going to take much more time than wearing the t-shirt and hoodie with a messy pony tail. For whatever reason you feel like wearing sweats, you woke up sick or on the wrong side of the bed, or you’re depressed because of the presidential election from the night before ;)… don’t wear them! Like I said in my Confidence post, your mood and feelings effect how you dress so try to change those emotions before getting dressed.

It took me about 5 more minutes to get ready in a more presentable way. While I was getting dressed I thought of a few tips that will help you out on days like this.

1. Always have a to-go outfit.
Here is what you need:

  • Your favorite pair of jeans (well fitted ones because you know your butt has to look good 😉 )
  • At least 3 of your favorite tops to choose from – ones you know you like and that you know you look good in.
  • A pair of shoes that go with any outfit
  • A fitted jacket for a colder day. Preferably one that zips so you can still see your cute top.

2. Stick with basic make-up. Even just having a little bit of mascara helps a lot!
Here is what I wear on a simple day:

  • mascara
  • blush
  • lip gloss
  • eyeliner (occasionally)

Like I’ve said in past posts, it’s so easy and worth it to take a couple extra minutes to make a better outfit. You’ll look and feel better throughout the day because of it.

Here is what I wanted to wear and what I ended up wearing:

Jeans: Miss me’s. I love how they fit and they aren’t overly embellished.

Shirt: Basic lightweight sweater. It could be considered an over-sized sweater but it’s not huge so you can still see my figure.

Shoes: Leopard print flats – I’ve surprised myself with how many outfits I’ve been able to wear them with.

Hair: Instead of just doing a basic pony tail, i braided each side of my hair and then put it in a pony tail.  To add a little extra, I wrapped some of my hair around the pony tail holder to hide it.

Accessories: I decided to go with earring only today. You can choose what you would like, earrings, necklace or both.

xoxo, Maggie.

Do you find yourself shopping online often? Just filling up your cart with adorable clothes and then being surprised by the portion size and price? It’s discouraging when it’s more than you can afford and you have to decide what you really want. You usually end up forgetting about the whole order.
Well, I do that…probably a little more than I should (I did it with every site I looked at for this list), but I can’t help myself! There are so many great things I want to wear. So for your benefit and my own I have found some great sites to shop, including more popular ones like Forever21. The clothes are still adorable but don’t cost and arm and a leg to buy.
Here are some of the sites I thought you might like. Enjoy!! 🙂

www.forever21.com
www.alloy.com
www.rue21.com
www.charlotterusse.com
www.6pm.com – Discount shoes!!
www.papayaclothing.com
www.wetseal.com
www.sammydress.com – A lot of over-sized shirts; I’ve found that most items are one size fits all, but they still have a lot of cute things and for a good price.
www.bodyc.com
www.ae.com – Great store for jeans, starting at just $30.
www.agacistore.com
http://www.hm.com/us/
www.10dollarmall.com
www.pinkice.com – I like a really random variety of clothing so I found things I liked on this site. You might not like it but take a look anyway, you might end up finding something you really like.
www.1015store.com
www.boohoo.com
www.shopgarageonline.com
www.necessaryclothing.com – Hit or miss, just depends on your style. Definitely loved this site. So much to choose from.
www.gojane.com
www.barefeetshoes.com
www.loveculture.com
www.us.topshop.com – On the left side of this side they have a price scale. You can choose your price range, starting at $10 going up to $300+
www.polyvore.com – Type in what you’re looking for and your price range and it brings up hundreds of sites with pictures so you don’t have to go from site to site.

Some of the items on these sites are a little more expensive but they will last you longer. So, if you like that jacket that is $45-$75 dollars then get it, because you’ll have it for years.

If you know of any other good sites just leave them in the comment section and I will add them to the list!! 🙂

Combat style.

Well, I finally found myself a pair of combat boots that I like… so I decided to find an entire outfit to show you that I would wear with them.

Starting with tops:

Jeans:

On the left I chose skinny jeans from buckle and on the right, as shown, they are from American Eagle. Both are a reasonable price.

Last but not least…my boots, and another pair that I really like:

This outfit works with both pair of boots that are used for my examples but it doesn’t mean that they are the only ones that work. Click on the link below them and check out some more!  Combat boots are really popular right now so don’t be afraid to try them out!! Be open to new styles; don’t think that you have to wear dark wash denim jeans with a leather jacket for this style to work. There are so many ways to wear these boots, so throw random outfits together and see if it works. 🙂
