Catching Up

Sorry I was MIA most of last week....I had family in town and it was greatness.  Then after they headed back home I was worn out and forgot all about posting.  Hope everyone had a great wknd.  Here are a few outfits I forgot to post last week.....
I wore the outfit above on Friday for "Jeans Day."  I saw a girl wear white jeans on jeans day a few wks ago and loved how much more summery it looked then regular jeans.  I have had these jeans for over 2yrs and they still had their TJ Maxx tag on them, because they were always too tight.  (I bought them without trying them on)  Well, you guessed it....they fit now :)  Actually the waist is a little big, so decided I better get some use out of before their too big to wear. 
Here's what I'm wearing:
Top-$7 at TJ Maxx
Jeans- $10 at TJ Maxx (Actually bought the top and pants the same day)
White Tank-$5.50 at Walmart
Camel Wedges- $6 at Goodwill
Necklace- $1 at Walmart
Bangle- 50cents at Claires
Outfit Total: $30.00
I wore the outfit above out to dinner with an old sorority friend....hadn't seen her in way too long, so it was great to chat for hours over yummy mexican food.  I had some yummy and healthy fish tacos...I never eat the tortilla.  Anyways, on to the outfit....
Here's what I wore:
Dress-$20.00 at Dots
Heels-$12 at Payless
Blue Beaded Bracelets-50cents at Claires
Red tribal beaded bracelet-50cents at Claires

Wild Work Skirt

I don't wear this skirt too often, because it is definately a loud piece, but when I do wear it I always feels confident and bold in it.  I don't know if it's the unexpected animal print or the nontraditional work wear aspect, but I just love it.  I scored this awesome skirt at Burlington the day I interviewed for my first post college job (aka, my last job before this one).  I thought my interview went great, but had basically no $$ (Poor college student), so wanted to reward myself in a little way and scored this skirt on mega clearance.  Do you ever reqard yourself with shopping?  Oh I sure do!!! lol :)
Here's what I wore today:
Pink Tee- $7 at Cato
Skirt- $3.99 at Burlington
Heels- $4 at Payless
Belt- Free with dress from Bealls
Necklace- $3.99 at Cato
Bracelet- 50cents at CCA Thrift Store
Earrings- Came in set with a necklace for $1 at MIZ Accessories
Outfit Total- $20.48

Jeans Friday, Take 1

Today was an interesting Friday!!  Started out by discovering I was bitten by a spider, who knows when, and it has made my ankle super tender all day.  Then started taking my first customer calls post training all by myself and oh my, that was fun, no seriously, I really love it.  I obviously still have a million things to learn and am pretty sure I asked my coworkers like a 100 questions today, but it went great. :)  Didn't leave work for lunch, just had a lunchable, because I have this new theory that all restaurant food make me feel sick...no bueno!!!  Finally and most excitedly....it's Friday, which means 2 very important things....we got to wear jeans to work, which I like once a week and the weekend is upon us.  This last week of training has been intense and I have really enjoyed it, but I definitely appreciate the weekend and getting caught up on rest and randomness. :)  So after that little Friday ramble, on to my outfit.....
Here's what I wore today:
Printed top-$8.88 at the $8 Fashion Outlet
Jeans- $7.50 at Talbots Outlet
Black/Corck Wedges- $4 at Payless (Always seem to luck out during Payless sales.)
Necklace- $3 from Cato
Earrings- Came in a set with a necklace for $1 at MIZ Accessories
Bracelet- $1 at Dots
Orange Rhinestone Ring- 6 for $5 at MIZ Accessories
Outfit Total- About $26
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!  ~Kendra~

Jewel Tones

I had a floral dress with hot pink peep toe wedges all set out to wear this morning and then I get out of bed, had breakfast and looked at the outfit and thought.....I so don't wanna wear that today.  Doesn't happen that often, but I had to think quick...since I apparently take forever and a day to get ready. lol (Long story short, I wake up at 6am and I had to be at work at 8:30 and literally live 3mins from my work and barely made it) Anyways, I decided to go with a basic blak sheath dress, which by the way is several sizes to big, which is why I added the belt, then I topped it out with this amazing garage sale find, the jewel toned jacket.  Isn't it nice, when you unexpectedly throw together something you love at the last second.
Here's what I wore:
Basic black sheath dress- $25 at Cato (Came with a cute black, white and red blazer)
Black Belt-free with a dress from Bealls
Purple Jewel Toned Blazer- $1 at a garage sale (Total score!!!)
Nude and black peep toe heels- $9 at Payless
2 Big beaded Bracelets- Came in a set for $1.50 at Forever 21
Small beaded bracelets- Came in a set for less than $1 at MIZ Accessoires
Necklace- $2.99 at Cato
Earrings- Less than $1 at MIZ Accessories
Outfit Total- $41.49
I'm loving how the vast majority of my outfits are under $50 and most by more than $10. :)  Awesome!!!  ~Kendra~

Back to the grind....

Back to the grind after a long weekend....Hope everyone enjoyed the 4th of July.  I got to spend some much needed rest time with my family.  I'm feeling rejuvinated and ready to get back into the swing of things.  Today, I decided to go with pants instead of a skirt, because....honestly...it felt like a Monday and after driving the 6hrs home yesterday I wanted an easy, but stylish outfit. 
Here's what I wore:
Grey lace layed top- $6 at Bealls
Black tank- $3 at Walmart
Plaid pants- $10 at walmart
Heels- $4 at Payless
Bag- $7 at Bealls
Necklace- $3.99 at Cato
Clear beaded bracelet- $1.50 at Dots
Grey beaded bracelet- Came in a set of 2 for $1.50 at Forever 21
Clear Bead earrings- Came in a set with a necklace for $1 at MIZ Accessories
Outfit Total- $37.99 
Most of my outfit, minus the heels and the grey bracelet, are all new purchases.  I went to Bealls on my way home yesterday and purchased 2 items. Also, my mom and I hit up Cato and walmart.  I got the Dots bracelet a few wks ago, but this is the 1st time I've worn it.  Wearing a new outfit always feels good and this one was no exceptiong.  I felt comfortable, but professional. :)  Happy Monday, well Tuesday....short weeks are so confusing, but oh so nice!!!! ~Kendra~
