I met up with one of my bffs from high school Monday night at the mall. She needed some professional outfits for an upcoming interview. I needed nothing... :)
But I ended up getting three fabulous pieces, two of which I "needed" for teaching and one of which is thoroughly impractical, but adorable!
I decided that I needed to stage a photo shoot to show you the cute new outfits I can make!!
First is a high-wasted, knee-length, khaki shirt. I needed a new khaki skirt, my other one is old and not very cute. I found it at H&M for $25 :) great!
I paired it with a brown flowered top that I got at Penney's a couple of weeks ago and my pointy-toed brown heels!!
I really wanted some dressy capri pants that I could wear to school during the spring and summer. I have tried on a bunch, but finally found these at T.J. Maxx for $15!!!!
I paired them with a teally top I got a few months ago at Target and my gray plaid flats. I was going to have Momma hem them (I'm so short!) but I think I like them this length...
I also discovered that from the side this shirt makes me look pregnant... oops.
I threw on a belt and it sorta helped :)
Last outfit- the impractical one. I tried this dress on at T.J. Maxx and didn't let myself try on anything else afterwards because I knew I shouldn't buy anything else :)
So cute! I wore it with my black, gray/silver and white heels. Love it!
The following conversation ensued.
Momma: Where will you wear that?
Jillibean: To Emily (my friend/former roommate)'s wedding.
Momma: In December?
Jillibean: I'll wear a sweater and tights.
I don't have a cute gray sweater yet, but I will find one! But here it is with tights.
While I was doing my photo shoot I was listening to Glee songs from last night's finale, so of course some dancing ensued... well it won't let me add those pics, but I'll try again later...
I also got this purse at Target the other day <3
