High Five for {Fashion} Friday!

I thought it might be fun to introduce a new theme to implement occasionally: Fashion Fridays. (Future link up, anyone?!) I'm not a major style maven, but I dabble in things occasionally. This is one of those occasions.

After Henry's nasty stomach bug, I got out of the house and got a few things to make me feel... Human again.

I headed out to get a few pairs of causal, everyday shoes. I've never had a need for that kind of shoe because I was either always office-chic for extreme-weekend-casual. I no longer have a need for office-chic and am pretty tired of extreme weekend casual, so here's the lowdown on the mini-haul I got and how I'm styling them:

Top 5 Fashion Friday Picks:

1) Got these beauties by Everybody/Bz Moda for 80% off! They weren't even $60. Score!



2) Then found these hipster-inspired boots from Crown Vintage. This brand is super affordable so I was comfortable buying something more "trendy" given the price point.



3) Found this comfy, slouchy cardigan at a boutique shop in the Bishop Arts district by Nixon Asked Cash (say that out loud three times fast!)



4) So I created this look: "Southern Prepster"
Sweater Nixon Asked Cash // White Jeans J Crew // Tank Target // Necklace and bracelet J Crew // Shoes Everybody/Bz Moda


5) And if you follow me on Instagram, which you totally should because it's by far the most fun soc-media platform, you've seen this look: "Inspired Hipster"
T Shirt J Crew // Jeans J Crew // Shoes Crown Vintage // Hat CC Exclusives // Watch Michael Kors // Bangles J Crew


Have you ever created random or mix'n'match type looks from a few new pieces you've purchased?

As always, linking up with two of my faves, Amanda and Karli!

Cheers to the weekend!

    1. Haha! If you'd just grow your foot out a little more to be a real, grown up size, I'd be happy to share! ;)

  2. part of my Friday post was on fashion too - haha but mens fashion. I'm obsessed with men in amazing suits (and suits did just return this week - Hey Harvey!). Instagram by far is the first social media ap I open in the morning, and I practically mix and match everything in my wardrobe.

    1. There was a bunch of us who posted fashion items on Friday - I'm considering a link up! And yes to men in suits. Part of the reason I fell for my hubs :)

  4. Love the shoes. Love the top. Love how you styled everything. Southern prepster is totally a thing. I've been meaning to trek over to the Bishop Arts District and do a little shopping. I'm on a clothes spending freeze until spring really hits. Then I'm buying a bunch of comfy sundresses.

    1. I can't for the life of me remember what the dang boutique is called! But it's not a big area, so you'll be able to find it. Everything is reasonably priced in there, too!

      Sundresses FTW! It's what I wear March-Oct.

    1. I didn't think they worked for me either, but I just got into them! I think my hair is just the right length now. And thanks for the heads up on the Target tee's - they look AMAZING!

    1. I think I might transition to be a bit more "hipsterish" - everyone was loving this look! I wore it for two days straight. Shhhh, don't tell!

    1. Super comfy and flattering! The layers in the front help to hide any belly you might not want hanging out :)
