I am in an amazing mood today, my team won its 3rd National Championship in 4 years. We had a big party last night to watch the game, and we were all piled on the couch eating yummy food and enjoying the general splender of our team kicking their butts. I liked the Notre Dame team but their schedule did not prepare them for us. It sure feels good all this winning, but I'm sure the rest of the country is pretty sick of us. We just keep winning and winning those Championships. Ok, I'm done gloating about my team, I guess that is the expected reaction though. Victory just feels so sweet. OK I'm done, I'm done, I'm really done.
People have many ideas on what it like to live in Alabama, mostly that its full of rednecks and fast food chains, but with Buck Wild on the television and me not knowing any person like that who lives near me, I have to assume that there are those kinds of people no matter where you live, north or south. Alabama is a beautiful state, with hills, rivers, pastures, quaint towns, big cities, and lovely seasons. It has plenty of history and friendly people, southern hospitality, good manners, and amazing football players. I love living in my Sweet Home Alabama. Another thing that is great about Alabama is great thrifting. I found this great textured tweed jacket last year and this cute shimmery clutch a few weeks ago at the thrift store up the road! I love pairing them with my Ruche top and circle pattern pants.
I like the combination of patterns and colors on this look. I think the color of the pants pairs nice with the merlot heels. I was worried about how these pants would look on me, a 5'2 frame, but I kinda think they look nice, its fun to try new things. I tell you one thing though, I can NOT wear these with flats. No sir, No sir, it is a bad idea!!
|Pants and Top (Ruche) both sold out :( here is a similar top |
Shoes (Nine West) Necklace (Ruche) Clutch and Jacket (thrifted)
I think this is a good outfit to wear when you want to be dressy but not where a dress. Its hard to find fun dressy pants but these are just the unexpected element this outfit needs to make it interesting. And as for the shirt. it is my prettiest top I own, every girl needs a pretty white or cream top to pair with difficult items.
I was happy to be featured on Diary of a Brown Eyed Girl, I am a Mormon Monday. It was a great opportunity to share about my beliefs, because I know there are many who are sometimes curious about what we do believe. Please go check it out, its a lovely blog!
I hope everyone has a wonderful week and goes thrifting, I hope I can go this week! Much love to everyone!
