So today my boyfriend and I went to see a play: The Prime of Miss Jean Brody" It was a play about a school teacher in WWII. Before the play we had lunch at Rosa's and while there a waitress came up to me and told me she thought my outfit was cute...I don't know about yall, but isn't it fun when a complete stranger gives you a compliment. I hardly ever wear this skirt, but I am so glad I did, because it's super comfy, but still looks put together. What's you go to item when you want to look cute, but also want to be super comfortable??
.
What I'm Wearing:
Gap Cardi-$1.50 from Denton Thrift
Black Top-$ from Target
Black Tanktop- $5 from a random store in the mall
Skirt- $2 at Goodwill
Belt- $1.50 at Dots
Scarf- Gifted from my bestie Esther for my bday
Tights- $5 at Walmart
Flats- $? from Payless
Set of beaded bracelets- $1.50 from Forever 21
Earrings- Came in a set for $1 from MIZ Accessories
Silver Flower Ring- $1 at MIZ Accessories
.
Oh, all this week I have been doing my hair in heated curlers and I absolutely love the look and the last all day. I got these curlers last week for about $20 at Walmart. The curls seem to stay in place much better than when I use a curling iron. I am basically hooked on them already!! hehe :)

Today was one of those mornings where everything seemed to go wrong, the dogs go out and I had to chase them several blocks, someone scratched my bumper in the parking lot, the dress I bought at Target yesterday didn't fit right and I was just whiney.....so what did I did to make my day better? If you didn't catch it from the title, I did some retail therapy. lol I decided to go to Target to get cash back for the dress. I browsed Target for a bit and didn't find anything there, so I decided to go to Goodwill, which I haven't been to in a while. When walkin in Goodwill they had a huge sign on the door...it was 50% off day...Yay!!! Finally hit a bright spot in my day. I had a blast looking in there and walked away with a pair of Gray Ann Taylor dress pants for 2, a black J Crew Cardigan for $2 and a really cutes tan braided and studded skinny belt for $1. My day was instantly improved!! :) What's that store that always makes you feel better when your having "one of those" days?

What I'm Wearing:
Blue Flyaway- $9 at Forever 21 (BDay Present from BF)
Tan Top-$7 at Rainbow
White Tank Top- About $3 at Target
Jeans- $19 at Old Navy
Shoes- $9 at Walmart
Necklace- $1 at Goodwill

Boots- $15 at Rainbow

Purple Cardi- $7 at Walmart

Necklace- gifted from Cynthia at Closet Bliss

Still going strong...or like me and this month threw you things you weren;t expecting that may have gotten in thew way? All in all, I am so glad I did and like I said, I will try it again. :) This month has flown by!!! ~Kendra~

30 for 30 Challenge: Outfit #6

I wore this outfit late week, before I got sick, to work. I just loved the combo of lace with a work appropriate, but fun colored, sheath dress!! Remixing simple dressings with different tops and tights in your wardrobe is a great way to make better use of those items you may not be wearing much. I can think of a million different ways to wear this simple $8 Target dress.....such a good buy!!! :)

Today on my nails, I have Revlon's Lilac Pastelle #185, which I have been trying to make myself love, but I'm just not totally feelin the color...it comes of more dirty pink than lilac. Also, on the ring finger I have added some glitter with Bonbons glitter in pink. I love this glitter and it seems to match and change with any color you layer it over. This is one of my all time favs and an awesome deal for only 99cents. :) ~Kendra~
