What I'm Wearing: Shades of Brown

Howdy everyone! Today was one of those days where I rolled out of bed with a complete lack of inspiration. I saw the top I have on in the closet and decided it was high time I wore it. I thrifted this pleated front beauty from the Goodwill a month or more ago. The sleeves are enormously fluffy, so I feel a big like I have saggy army in it, but over all it's cute. It needed some structure and that is why I tied a faux leather belt around it to create a waist.

Then I couldn't decide what I wanted to do with it, so I ended up just pulling a brown pair of dress pants from my closet and throwing on some heeled loafers. As I was ready to leave, (and already running behind) I noticed that my butt looked atrocious in these pants because they were way too loose in the caboose. I got home from work and even my husband said "Your pants are too big." I found out why when I looked at the tag. They are two sizes bigger than what I wear in the same brand now. Time for these to go to consignment.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
