Back to My Roots

And I hope you don't think we're talking hair color here.

Remember when I went to Chicago two weeks and never posted about it? Yeah, me either.

And then I went on several shopping sprees and said I was going to post pics of what I bought?

Yeah, about that.

So, back to a good old head-cropped-out shopping post. I'm having major camera troubles over here because my house is dark as night and I may have to ditch the SLR camera for these type posts in the future. It's not working out.

Anyway, shopping therapy.

First of all, I broke at least half of my fashion rules with this dress. Especially the one that doesn't like things with one shoulder.

I kinda like it though. Thoughts?

I'm seeing it with a loong gold necklace. And on vacation.

This next top is from Gap and the bottoms are from F21. I thought I loved the top but it's clearly doing me no favors in this shot. And for some reason the detail isn't coming across as very cute. I like the deep blue color though.

Now these pants though... these pants are a work of art. Behold:

Maternity-type elastic jeans for the non maternity set. I wore these out to a bar in Chicago and it was THE best decision. I felt like I was wearing PJs all night long.

(Please do not talk about how flat my stomach looks in that left pic. You and I both know I was sucking that fat roll up like WHOA.) And how SEXY does my butt look all square like that? Meow!

While at Gap I had to pick up another pair of their sexy boot yoga pants.
Seriously, these pants are amazing. I have a black pair that I have worn to death and will be adding another pair as soon as I see them on sale.

Next up, I got 2 items at LOFT during the extra 50% off clearance. The top ended up costing around $14 and the jeans were $20. The two together seem extra-unflattering though. I think. Something's off.

Also, do you see how pale my skin looks in the shot above? I could be a vampire extra in Twilight.

And just because I know somebody will comment on whyyy my face is cropped out.... it's because I had just jumped out of the shower and looked like a messy hot mess.

Favorite red t-shirt, new fav sweats, and the oldest zip-up sweatshirt in history.

We can't all be classy on our days off. Some of us prefer to be comfy.

Those elastic jeans are awesome - i need to invest in a pair of those. After almost a year of maternity clithes wearing - I must say I really enjoyed the elastic waist in everything!

I loooove Gap yoga pants. I always buy them at the outlet so they aren't ever too expensive. Do you have an outlet in Indiana?

Yoga pants are sent straight from heaven. I am pretty sure of it.

I adore the blue dress! Where is it from?

Sarahviz said...

I'm not loving the top blue dress. Verrrrrry 70's. Like blue eyeshadow and Farrah Fawcett hair 70's. I think I even hear bad 70's porn music in the background.

Where on earth did those fabulous jeans come from? Tell. Now.
