Tough Stuff

I wish I could take all the kick-butt vibes from this outfit and apply it to my current situation. At the moment, I'm in the middle of carrying on an annual Thanksgiving tradition that I started a few years back and that is to be sick. It could be food poisoning, new medication that I'm on, or I did something terrible in a past life and it's catching up to me now.

This GIF basically sums up my life right now:

Tangled Up In Blue

Everytime I look at that first photo of this set, I get major Carly Rae Jepsen vibes. Anyone else? This outfit is actually from almost two months ago. Yikes! But you'd probably never know it unless I told you. Time sure has flown by since then!

However, this weekend seemed to move at a snails pace. Heavy rain kept me indoors (as does everything) and I caught up on a lot of jewelry making. You best believe my Etsy shop got an update! Too much time on my hands also got the best of me on Sunday night when my sister had the bright idea to do my hair. If you've ever wanted to know what I look like with straight here, click on through to my instagram. Hopefully your weekend was more eventful than mine. ;)
Outfit details:
Blazer - $7 (thrifted)

Blouse - from my bff Lyndsey
White pants - $10 (outlet store)
Heels - $2 (thrifted)
Necklaces - $1 each (discount store)

Desperately Seeking Bad 80s Fashion!

When shopping for clothes, I usually stick to the motto "If it's good enough for a character in an 80s movie, then it's good enough for me!" That's how I talked myself into this blazer. I could totally see Andie from Pretty In Pink wearing it. (Which I think is what I say every time I wear it on my blog. HA!)

This week I added a new movie to my inspiration roster - Desperately Seeking Susan! How have I gone so long without that film in my life? I guess the title always threw me off so I would skip it whenever the chance came up. I'm so glad I finally took the time to watch it because the wardrobe in that movie is to die for! Are there any other quality fashionable movies of that decade I'm missing out on?

Speaking of inspiration - I am showing off some fellow thrifty chicks over on Midwest Style Bloggers today. Check it out for some new names to add to your blogroll. :)

Outfit details:
Polka dot blouse - $5 (outlet store)
Blazer - .25 cents (thrifted, similar one being sold in my Etsy shop)
Pants - $1 (thrifted)
Flats - $5 (thrifted)
Necklace - won in giveaway a million years ago
