Fashion Friday - Turns Out That's a Thing!
Last Friday I posted an outfit of the day blog, and today thought "Hey, maybe I'll do that every Friday." I see hashtags for different "events" all week long, like #transformationtuesday, #whatiworewednesday, #throwbackthursday, and wondered what there was for Friday. It turns out that #fashionfriday is a thing, and I've decided to add it to my blog.
I love fashion...like really love it. When I was a little girl I would cut pictures out of magazines and make poster boards. One of my bucket list items is to go to shows at Fashion Week in New York. I also dreamed of being a fashion designer, and for whatever reason, never pursued that career option. That doesn't stop me from loving clothes, shoes, handbags, or jewelry any less. What I really hate though is spending money. Call me cheap, frugal, practical, whatever, but it has to be something pretty amazing (like a handbag or a great pair of shoes) for me to spend very much money on it. The thought of spending a lot of money on trendy fashion items pains me greatly, so I just don't do it often. I am really particular about quality and fit, so I look long and hard to find great stuff. When I find things I love, I tend to buy every color that I can.
I found this dress while shopping for our recent cruise (posts here, here, here, and here) and wasn't sure I liked it. I wore it on the trip and fell in love with it. It is really comfortable, and it can be dressed down or up. I came home and bought it in black as well. Today I had errands to run and it is beautifully warm outside. I threw on my striped dress, one of my favorite pair of comfortable shoes, and a matching scarf. Easy, comfortable, and cute!
