What I'm Wearing Wednesday & a Giveaway!

Over Christmas break, I have become quite the stalker of some fashion blogs in the hopes to update my wardrobe through using what I already have to mix and match and purchasing a few new key pieces.  Some of the awesome blogs I am stalking following:

The Small Things Blog

The Chiffon Diary

Hello, Gorgeous!

Ms. Loyd's Closet

I thought that once a month I could post some of the things I am wearing.  This will MAKE me be more adventurous in trying to come up with new outfits for work and play.  I tend to have this habit of wearing black dress pants and some different shirts to work about three days a week, khakis and another shirt at least once a week, and then jeans on Friday with a school shirt for spirit days.  I am trying to break out of my shell a bit.  But first, I had to go and purchase a full length mirror because believe it or not........we did not own one.

I went to the store once I came up with the post idea to purchase a full length mirror.  I get the mirror put it in my cart and continue shopping.  By the time I get to purchase it, I realize it has been cracked at the bottom of the frame and I don't want to buy a cracked mirror.  Unfortunately, it was the last mirror.  Therefore, I waited about a week and went back and finally got a new one.

As a result, I only two pictures to show you this time, but next time.....woah buddy, you better watch out! :)  Another reason I only have two pictures may have something to do with the fact that I could get my butt out of bed on time the past two mornings so I just threw on whatever.  hehehe......a girl needs her beauty sleep right?

Anyways, here are a couple outfits I have been wearing lately.

I decided to delve into the world of colored skinnies.  This is one of my more tame pairs.  They are a khaki color.  I paired them with a chambray shirt, scarf, and a pair of brown boots.

This is a pair of blue colored skinnies.  I didn't think I would like real colored skinnies, but I LOVE this pair!  I paired them with a black tank, black cardigan, and purple shoes.  I couldn't decide if should or shouldn't wear the scarf.  {It is the same scarf from the first picture}  So, I posted the picture on instagram and let my friends and family weigh in.  The scarf option was the winner :)

Hoping to have more pictures for next month.  Now about this giveaway........
