What I Wore Wednesday & New shoes


On my way into town to go grocery shopping last Thursday I stopped at the Goodwill to find Russ and I ugly sweaters for a Christmas party we attended on Saturday night. Two hours later I emerged with the sweaters, along with two pairs of jeans, two dresses, and two tops. Oopsies!

Next stop Target. Sometimes I like to grocery shop there now that they are a full-fledged "superstore", mostly because it gives me an excuse to look at all the fun stuff. (And don't forget there's a Starbucks inside). Somewhere along the line these shoes mysteriously found their way into my cart. Which is such a coincidence since one of the pairs of jeans I bought at the Goodwill are really long flares and will go perfectly with them!

The best part: I got them for $10.00. Not because they were on sale, but because I had a $10 gift card from my Black Friday shopping adventure, a coupon for $5.00 off a purchase of $50.00 or more, and I used my Target debit card which gives me 5% off my entire purchase. Not too shabby.

Now here are my outfits from this past week:

Left: Ross vest, Shade tee, Old Navy tunic, Walmart leggings, Nordstrom Cardy Uggs, handmade hat.
Right: Costco sweater, Dress Barn shirt, Target jeans, Walmart boots.

Left: Ross shirt, Maurice's vest,  newTarget jeans (via Goodwill - new with tags), Target wedge booties.
Right: Old Navy cardy (via yard sale), F21 tee (via Goodwill) Saturday market scarf, Target jeans, Walmart boots.

Left: Target dress (via Goodwill), Old Navy cardy, thrifted belt, Walmart boots.
Right: Ross shirt, Walmart bomber jacket, Kmart scarf, Target jeans, Costco boots.

I think it's safe to say that I'm possibly the cheapest shopper ever. It's really the safest option I have though, seeing as that I like to shop so often ;)

And I know you all want to know exactly what kind of ugly sweaters I was able to find for our party... so here you go.
Embracing the ugliness :)
