#StyleMeMarch: Dots or Stripes & #FindItFriday: Week 5

It is that time of the week again!!

Find it Friday is here AND I am still able to participate in the Style Me March Challenge!

Today’s found item is my white shirt. I bought this shirt last year when I was nursing my daughter. It was great for that and I guess that I  just never really have worn this since then. I actually really like the neckline and think that it is a good shirt to wear in the summer but can be hard to style with four pockets on the front and brownish buttons.

Two things I realized today

1. I was overly ambitious and hopeful when going bare-legged today.

2. I really need a pedicure!!!

What do you think? Is this shirt worth keeping in my closet?

Find It Friday {Week 4}

Welcome to week four of Find it Friday!

What is Find it Friday? Well it is when you FIND something in your closet that you haven’t worn in a long time and wear it on FRIDAY. Then you make up your mind if it still should belong in that closet of yours.

I have two found items on today. Can you figure out which ones are the found items?

Sweater – New York and Company, Tank – New York and Company, Bangles & Watch – New York and Company, Necklace  – Express, Pants – The Limited, Shoes – Michael Shannon via Rack Room Shoes

The tank top and the red shoes are my found items. I actually have two pairs of red shoes and haven’t worn either them regularly in several years – especially these shoes. I think that it has been 2 years since I have worn them.  I love how these shoes look and what they bring to an outfit. They just aren’t the most comfortable, so I have to be careful about what tasks I am going to be doing the day I am wearing them.  I am obsessed with these tank tops. I am continually buying them in different colors and have had this one for over 5 years. I love them as layering pieces. This morning, I realized though that I have not worn this one in over a year. I guess that I need to rock the cobalt blue more often. I originally was going to wear a red tank under my sweater, but after putting it on, realized that the blue conveyed the more sophisticated look that I was going for and that I would still be using the red to pop the outfit with the necklace and shoes.

Please join me today. Comment with a link to your post and I will do a round-up of everyone this weekend.

Find It Friday – Group Round Up

So the lovely Amber Lena joined us this week.

Here’s my picture. I had given this belt to a friend and she recently returned it, but I totally forgot about it until this week! And the sweater? Its been sitting in my closet in plain sight for months, and I noticed it matched the belt. 🙂 
Also joining us this week is Shay from My Confidence and Me.
Shay said this – My found item is this blue cropped jacket!  It got pushed to the back of my closet (with a lot of my other jackets), but because it doesn’t have a collar, I couldn’t see it and I forgot all about it!
They both look great and I think their items should stay.
As a reminder – here is my outfit.

Thanks for participating. I hope to see even more people this coming week!! 🙂

Find It Friday {Week 3}

Sorry for the late post. I had a very busy day, followed by book club!

Today is FIND it FRIDAY! Read all about it here and let me know if you are joining in!

Dress – Express, Tights, Belt, & Jewelry – New York and Company, Shoes – Simply Vera via Kohls

(this is what I look like in the morning before leaving for work – i put my make up on in the car at stoplights)

So, I have had this dress for a long time and used to wear it frequently. I stopped wearing it when I became pregnant. Then I stayed home from work for a year and it just never made its way back into the rotation. I really do like it and I love the color. I guess that I struggle with wearing it in different ways. How else would you style this dress?

I am really liking this experiment of finding things in my closet that I haven’t worn in quite a while and I am excited to see what other people have put together. I am adding a page called FIND it FRIDAYs with info and the picture you can use if you participate. 🙂

I love the pattern mixing and that dress. It is a great piece to pattern mix and also looks great with those boots.

I want to steal her belt and her boots. I need black boots like that.

Again – here is my outfit. 

I love how both of our outfits turned out. Please join us next week on Friday!!

Find it Friday { Week 1 }

Today I bring you my first Find it Friday!

What is Find it Friday? Well it is when you FIND something in your closet that you haven’t worn in a long time and wear it on FRIDAY. Then you make up your mind if it still should belong in that closet of yours. If you ever want to join me – let me know and if I get enough interest, I will teach myself how to have a link party and link you all in. 🙂

So the item that I FOUND is this skirt. It is a mix of menswear and girly ruffles. I really liked it at the time, but I am not sure {after over 4 years of not wearing it} that the proportions are right for my body. I also feel weird with the ruffles, like they are too girly for me. I also think that it is weird that I would find something to be too girly for me. I mean I LOVE pink, and skirts, and shoes, and girly things in general. I don’t know if it is the combination of the ruffles and pinstripes or just the proportions, but I am not sold on it. I didn’t wear heels today, so that could have contributed to my uncertainty as well.

What do you think? Should it stay or should it find a new home?

I am thinking about keeping the skirt for another month and if I wear it again – it will stay. If I don’t, then off it goes to find another owner that will rock it!
