Closet Challenge/What I Wore

Shannon inspires me to challenge my closet every week and Lindsey hosts the great link up What I Wore Wednesday. You should go check both of them out!

Back for another installment of my closet challenge/what I wore this week. I totally failed at the closet challenge this week :( I spent $50 on clothes at JCP. But I got a dress, a skirt, 4 tank tops, a t shirt, and the white skinnies that I have been dreaming about. For my math friends that's 8 items for $50, an average of $6.25 each. Whoop whoop!! I blame it on my friend Lacey who was here to visit for the weekend :)


Check out my outfits from this week:
Wednesday, Oct. 3
striped shirt: JCP- I was in love with this shirt until someone told me I looked like Mrs. Waldo and there were going to bring me a Waldo hat to wear. Mean people suck- some thoughts should really just stay in your head
pink tank- Vanity
*thank you JCP for the inspirtation of putting pink under the orange strips!!
necklace- premier designs
jacket- American Eagle. I saw this jacket on Katherin Heigle over Christmas break of my sophmore year of college in a magazine and I fell in love. Went looking for it. $70. Not in this girls budget. Fast forward a few month- on sale at AE $25. Totally do-able :) Pays to keep checking.
flowers- both made by me
jeans- Vanity
sandals- Target
Thursday, Oct. 4
The kids here in my nothern town had their first snow day last Thursday! On Oct. 4th! Crazy I know.
Since the kids had a snow day and I work with kids I thought I should get to take a snow day too. The church secretary and Senior Pastor laughed at my request but said it was ok :)
So I spent the day in my sweats, I baked and cleaned.
I know the point of What I Wore Wednesday is to actually get dressed and not spend your days like this, but I wanted to tell you about these sweatpants.
When I was in high school I got a pair of sweatpants at the Gap Outlet for like $4, or something equally as rediculous. Best sweatpants ever.
This summer I found these at the Gap Outlet. Total retail value after sales and discounts. $3.50. They are like heaven. Except they're too long. But for $3.50 I can deal with the length. If you ever have a chance to buy a pair of these at a steal I'd highly recommend it. Or you can buy me a pair if you'd like, size XL please :)
