I Like to Match

tee/scarf/watch: Kohl’s, cardigan/skirt: thrifted, shoes: Payless

Sometimes I like to match my coffee mug to my outfit. No joke. Just yesterday I searched and searched for my purple mug to match my purple shirt, but couldn't find it and had to settle for the teal one. I couldn't resist participating in my first swap, the coffee mug swap over at Suzels Says. I was partnered with Christina from Life in Mi Casitawho blogs about her genius DIY projects. Really, I think if I did this but with the Cleveland Browns elf mascot, my husband would nominate me for wife of the year! When Christina sent me this great coffee mug, I just knew I had to plan my outfit accordingly! Animal prints match, right?!  If not, then at least I have the neutral tones going on! Thanks Christina! :)
This skirt may be a new closet staple for spring/summer.  I pulled it off the drying rack this morning because I figured it’d be a wrinkly, stiff mess and it would need tossed in the dryer, but it was perfect!  It somehow doesn’t even show the lumps and bumps that a tucked in tee and tank usually create either.  Thrifted at only $3.99, I can’t help but be super excited about how much wear it’ll get!


  1. I've never thought of matching my mugs to my outfits before... hmmm... I've probably told you already, but I love those red shoes!

  2. I love the outfit! And I am super impressed that the skirt was $4! Its a shame that we don't live closer to each other; we would do some serious damage thrifting together! I am so glad that you like the mug. Looking forward to seeing you tackle that project for your husband too :) You can do it!

    1. Thanks Christina! I wish we lived closer! It's always fun with a friend. :) I can't wait to see what you think of your mug! I got 2 compliments on my mug that day which I thought was cute! :)

  3. What a good thrifting score on your skirt! And I love the bright color of your shoes.

  4. Hehe I LOVE that you match your coffee mug to your outfit...genius!
