What I Wore: Simple

It is finally getting warm here, but I have been in a weird wardrobe funk. Maybe it's been the changing seasons or something, but I have so many "wants" on my clothing wishlist right now. Kind of strange for me, but I've been working on getting back on track. First, I have thrifted some great pieces over the last couple of weeks, even some things that I didn't ever expect to find at Goodwill or another resale shop. Second, I've been focusing on keeping it simple. Sometimes, I make getting dressed too complicated. There is definitely something to be said for combining basic, neutral pieces to create easy, polished looks. Here's what I've been wearing!


Top: Kohl's, White Cropped Pants: LOFT (Goodwill), Tank: Old Navy, Flats: Payless

I love these cognac flats, but will need to replace them soon. This striped top was part of my Mother's Day present. Looking forward to wearing it a lot. Oh, and I really like these white pants!


I got this new watch at my last Avon sales meeting for making President's Club for the first time. So excited! I love the wrap style, neutral color, and snakeskin print. It's coming out soon, so check out the Avon web site if you like it.


Skirt: Nicole Miller (garage sale), Chambray: Kohl's, Necklace: Avon, Cognac Wedges: Merona (Goodwill)

I have been super inspired by the blog Un-Fancy lately. She wears lots of neutral, basic combos that look so stylish! I combined a black skirt, chambray shirt, and cognac wedges to create this outfit. I got the skirt at a garage sale a year or two ago for $0.50 and couldn't believe when I found these leather Merona wedges at Goodwill last year. I wore it to act super silly in front of a big group of kids at a Right to Read week assembly. ;)


Pants: Mossimo, Shirt: Worthington, Sandals: Born, Scarf: Maurices (Goodwill)
This is one of my favorite outfit combos. I have had this shirt for so long, but don't wear it too much. When I found this scarf at Goodwill, I knew it would go with lots of my clothes. Just adding the scarf seemed to pull this outfit together for me.

How are you dressing for late spring and summer? Any great outfit formulas you fall back on?

The scarf is so pretty!! I love the skirt, too.

I am currently on the look-out for shoes- something for summer besides flip-flops. I am so picky!
