As promised, I did a craft this weekend! But It didn’t get started until Sunday due to some family issues. It will get posted later this week in between final projects prep!
I decided to start a new series on the blog to help you(my readers) get to know me better. Every so often I will share what I wore. This will probably occur most when a) I get a new outfit or b) I feel that the outfit is cute or worthy of sharing. We will see how it goes.
Before I let you into my closet, you should know something, I have 4 rules when buying my clothes. They are:
1. The item must be functional! -This means that I have to be able to wear the item in a classroom (I’m going to school to be a teacher) or I have to be able to wear it to work. There are some exception like with summer clothes and sweats, but I usually don’t stray from this rule.
2. The item must be on sale or I have to have a coupon for it. -Josh and my friends will contest that I stick to this one pretty well. I Love this rule, it is my absolute favorite. Why buy full price when I can get more for my money?! I’m a college kid, this rule is very important!
3. The item needs to be modest. This is just a personal rule and style choice. I’ve followed this one since I can remember being able to pick out my own clothes. Everyone has their own definition of modest. Mine is, “Things that should be covered are covered.” It’s really that simple.
4. The item must have a purpose. Sometimes, I make the purpose up like, I have a coupon for this or this deal is too good to pass up! But when I do that, the item is also something that I need to complete an outfit, or it will match something I already own. Slowly but surely, I am building up my “teacher closet” and that has been my shopping purpose most often.
Even though I have rules, I still splurge sometimes. Hey, I’m not perfect! I’m a girl and love shopping, I can not deny this…
Here is my first ever See Me Wear This! outfit. Josh and I had a “day date” on Saturday. Of course, I needed to look cute to go to lunch, the mall, and grocery shopping. 😛 We had Hu Hot for lunch and it was amazing as always!
