Searching for inspiration!

All I have been doing lately is buying pieces! Pieces of clothing I mean. I just can't see to get to motivation to put together outfits for them. But in the near future (hopefully before school begins) I hope to make a couple outfits out of these pieces and take some pictures in them. And here they are with discriptions underneath because my camera stinks big ones!

This is a lacey thick strapped tank top that I bought today for $16. Right now Im thinking about just wearing it with a pair of dark blue skinny jeans and brown boots, but I hope to find a skirt to wear with it.

This particular item is actually a thrifted dress I also bought today for $4! It hit up to my knees and it didn't look very flattering on me so I snipped it half was through! I plan of sewing a hem at the bottom and on me (because I have a very long torso) will look like a crop top. A bonus about this dress (which is now a shirt) is that I has shoulder pads! Man oh man, am I even in to them right now!
This is "bottom" half of the dress, which I plan on keeping for now... not sure quite what to do with it yet.

This I paid 2 dollars for it and I couldn't leave it! Its a plain pink cardigan with the cutest eyelet looking prints around the collar and the bottom of it. I have no clue what I am ever going to wear with this. Maybe faded denim shorts? Not sure yet...

And last but not least. The first brown bag I found in my mom's closet the other day! It looks pretty banged up and used but I think I can make it work... maybe. I checked the tag and it was from Aldo. Apparently my mom had got it quite some time ago. The second purse is one I bought thrifted for $6. I think I may try to pair it with the above pink cardigan... hmmm, I'm not to sure yet.

Anyway that is it for now, and I would love to hear opinions or suggestions on these pieces! Thanks!

Got bored of my moms closet

So, I raided my dad's closet this time.
LMAO! How crazy does that sound! But the oufit's not half bad eh?
The shirt is so old! I remember my mom bought it for him when I was a kid when my family went to Parc Safari! Haha, hope you enjoy. I would have wore a belt with it but I couldnt find a black one! I seached my entire house. No old belts lying around :(

Raided moms closet again.

Today I am wearing my moms beige knit cardigan, pearls and wool socks. When I walked into the kitchen this morning she laughed and looked me up and down. I rudely said, What? But I knew she thought my outfit was ridiculous. I don't care, most of the peices were hers anyway.

It's Laundry Day!

Today was a good day. I tidied up the house, got in a run, got threw the work meeting, then went and did some laundry. Yes, my family does own a wash machine, however our laundry room was filling up and my mom insisted on catching up. So, while my sister and I were waiting we got some pictures of my outfit today :)

Above is my sister and I.
Here I am wearing a Tunic from H&M and a skirt from ZARA.
The buttons on the skirt are the cutest, they have little anchors on them :)
