Outfit of the Day

Over the weekend I finally had time to do my first outfit of the day!!Working at a hospital doesn't give me much time to wear normal people clothes, so I try to make the most of it when I get the chance. So here is the story: one of my bestest friends is leaving to go back to school and she and I had a goodbye extravaganza on Saturday night involving Captain America (best movie ever!!!), sushi and drinks at a pub. It was fabulous.


Hey Chris Evans Hey....



I chose to wear an amazing pair of floral print pants that I got about a year ago at a thrift store called Value Village. Its the coolest store. Most things cost under $5 and Im usually able to find on trend items there very easily.
Funny story about these pants: When I first saw them, I thought they were a skirt!! The legs are so flowy that they blended together! AND they were only .90 cents!! How cool is that!!


Here are the pants that I wore with an Old Navy tank and F21 belt, jewlery and wedges

Here is a semi-full body

My bestie who is leaving me :(

My wonderfull boyfriend who met up with us at the pub with some other friends


I am in love with my pants. and Im always trying to think of new ways to wear them. Any ideas??


Like I mentioned before I went thrifting yesterday! I LOVE thrift stores!!! Im obsessed. and I got a TON of goodies to share with ya'll! and, lucky me there are very few alterations I will have to make! If you havent already, everyone should check out http://www.newdressaday.com/ . This lovely lady decided that for a full year she would find a new outfit for a dollar. She went to thrift stores/garage sales and found pieces for $1 and sewed/tweaked it into something new and fabulous! Its amazing and inspiring!

Since finding her site a little over a year ago I have been much more adventerous with my thrifting and altering my pieces.
Here is a sneak peek at what is to come!!
