What I wore - 3rd edition

Originally, I thought it might be fun to do one of these wardrobe update posts every couple of months or so, but then I realized I could probably just do one at the close of each month for the sake of simplicity. I'm not really a wannabe fashion blogger or anything; that would be way too much pressure. Maybe it's helpful to some people to see what real people wear (women of a certain age, working outside the home, on a real budget, who aren't built like supermodels) or maybe it's just entertaining. Either way, I'm glad you stopped by for a gander.

There you have it - a sampling of the outfits I wore during April 2017. As you can tell, I'm constantly mixing old and new pieces together. Sometimes I wear designer elements that I snagged on sale, but I'm mostly just wearing clothes that I think are affordable and long-wearing and cute. I hope this gives someone out there some ideas about mixing items into outfits from your own closet. :)

  1. you inspire me but some of your outfits aren't work compliant for me. I can wear them out and about though. I need to dig through my shoes and spice up my outfits!
