Stepping Out – On The Cheap!

Hey all! I’ve been meaning to do this for awhile and I’m pretty excited to share some pics with you – and show just how cute thrifty can be! I don’t have much to share this week but I have some really cute things planned for Boston so stay tuned for next week when I’ll showcase those.

The only outfit pics I currently have on my phone are few. The first one was a couple weeks ago when FF & I were headed to this cute little local crepe restaurant to hear a friend who plays for a local band. Here’s what I wore:

*DISCLAIMER* I am not a model and my iPhone takes shitty picture s

Sweater Dress – Macy’s Clearance Rack: $7

Layering tank – Target (forever ago – I can’t remember the cost. Definitely got my $ worth!)

Leggings – Charlotte Russe $8.50

Knee Socks – Marshall’s $3.00

Rubber Boots – Marshall’s $10

The WHOLE THING for a little more than $30 – yeah, I made that happen.

I also HAVE to show you this jacket I love:

About two years ago my mom bought me something at TJ Maxx and knowing me as well as she does, presented it with a gift receipt, which I then used to return the gift (she doesn’t like giving gift cards – she’d rather wrap something and have you need to return it. It actually makes sense if you ask me!). So I return it and am told I have $25 to now spend at TJ Maxx – score! So I wander around and happen on this GORGEOUS winter white wool coat. ::dead:: I HAD to have it. I gave the price tag a side-eye (you know, lest the weight of it all hit me square in the eye hole!) and…it was TWENTY FIVE FREAKING DOLLARS!!! I bought it – and celebrated the purchase with some cute things to pair the coat with. My favorite? Cute scarves 🙂

I also have a What NOT To Wear moment for you this week. Not driving can be a pain in the ass. Even more so when its raining and you have errands to run before meeting FF for the gym. SO here’s what FF saw when I met him for the gym on Monday – don’t judge y’all

And yes, he left my face out of the picture on purpose. I guess he believed he was protecting my innocence…or maybe it was protecting him! He did chuckle and shake his head at me a lot. Come to think of it he even said, “I don’t know you.” Hmmm. 🙂 Have a good weekend all! Come back next Friday for pics from Boston! xoxo

  1. Those green galoshes are absolutely smoking hot. Sorry, don’t have much in the way to talk about here – I think the proverb goes “A woman will buy a $10 for $5 because she can, a man will spend $10 on a $5 item because he needs it”.

    Also, “A man has a penis, a woman has a crippling shoe obsession”

    Cute pics 🙂
