Shop Your Son's Closet

Skirt:St Mary's Thift Store, $5
So yesterday I was feeling girly and feminine and flirty. And the pencil skirt and heels made me feel just a little Mad Men-ish. It's kinda hard NOT to feel feminine in a pencil skirt and heels, though.  And the appreciative looks from my husband helped too!! He says it's all about the shoes. I really don't think he's wrong. These are Nine West that I've had forever. The shirt is Van Heusen and I've also had it forever! You could also pair a men's button down with this skirt, too.

I just wanted you to see my cute owl up close!
   But today, I wanted something different. I looked thru my clothes and just felt like it was the same old, same old. I couldn't go shopping.....or could I? Hmmm...I started looking thru Ben's clothes, but nothing. Then I remembered that Blake has a couple of shirts that he's not that crazy about but that I DO like. Maybe I can wear something of his.  And this is what I came up with.  It's Blake's shirt, but the rest is mine. I paired it with a sparkly tank from Charlotte Russe and SJP for Steve and Barry pin stripe pants and my black flats from Lise. I liked the look of silver, metal, and chains with it, but I used the pearls to try to soften it up a little bit.  And I think the sparkles in the tank do that, also. I actually like the result!

If you find yourself looking for something to wear, but not able to shop, go shop in your son's closet, your husband's or any man in your life. See what you find!!

There's the owl again!
I don't have on any obvious pink today, but I do have pink toe nails and I think that counts!! And speaking of pink, Lise and I made our local newspaper. You can go here to see us! Just scroll down the page!

Have a great weekend, Y'all!!
