You Win Some, You Lose Some

shirt: Macy's (forever ago!), sweater: Target, jeans: Walmart, shoes: Payless


Looking at this picture, today may have been the last time that shirt gets worn...it is not flattering to my arms! Maybe I should've listened to my gut instinct, because I threw on this sleeveless cardigan this morning because when I looked in the mirror, I thought there was something about the outfit that I wasn't crazy about. 


Because I prefer not to be completely negative, I'll talk about how fabulous these jeans have been to me.  First, the $12.88 price would've likely won me over anyway, but I wear these things all the time! Between these jeans and my skirts, I feel like I never wear my dress pants anymore. Is it wrong to think that just because they're black and a straight leg misses fit rather than a skinny leg juniors fit, that they qualify as dressing up? Probably!

  2. It's awesome that you got the jeans for so cheap! I never thought to buy clothes at Walmart but now I may need to check that out. Have a great weekend, Jess!

  4. Great jeans, I love it when a good deal turns out to be totally worth it! I definitely need to go through my closet again and get rid of some less-than-flattering items too - it's such a nice feeling to get rid of that stuff (and have the extra closet space)!
