Let me explain...

**Check out my guest post over at Calm Delight today.**

Saturday I drove through the icy wonderland to Raleigh to meet up with Angela to do some major boutique shopping.  It was a blast!  We had a great lunch at Cameron Bar and Grille and then hit up boutiques including Fedora, Uniquities, Clothes Hound,  Vestique, and Fab'rik.  I can't wait to show you what I got!  Angela got me to step outside my comfort zone and try something new!

And no, I don't feel guilty.  Let me explain...
Cardigan: Gap (love this option), Top: Gap (old, really cute option), Jeans: Levis (old, similar),
Boots: Steve Madden (similar), Bag: Franco Sarto (similar)

Bag: Franco Sarto via Belk, Jewelry: Stella & Dot

This bracelet is my new favorite bracelet.  I've been wearing it with everything!

I've decided that February is going to be Fashion Freeze February for me.  So, starting this Friday I am not allowed to spend any of my $moolah$ on anything related to fashion.  I'm sweating as I write this.  My armpits are perspiring and I'm veklempt.  Oh boy...

Okay, let me explain why I'm doing this...

  1. I'm working toward my National Boards and it's expensive, peeps!  Can't wait to get that first check if when I pass and celebrate! (Please, keep praying btw...I can definitely feel them.)
  2. There are so many cute things in my closet that I need to learn to rework and this is giving me a whole 28 days to focus on them.
  3. The way I see it is if there are still things in my closet I haven't worn or can't figure out how to wear in those 28 days, it's donation time!
  4. Last, but certainly not least, I'm attending a Clothing Swap on February 28 where you bring in several pieces you want to "trade."  For each piece you bring in, you get a ticket.  Each ticket "buys" a piece someone else brought to "trade."  Sounds ah-may-zing to me!
Be prepared to see me remixing, revamping, and shopping my closet!

**Don't forget to link up your fitness motivation, healthy recipes, 
or goals tomorrow for Fitness Friday**


  1. I like your #4! If you aren't inspired to wear a piece within those 28 days, you probably don't have a use for it anymore. Good luck with your month! Stay strong!

  2. Great idea! I need to take a "freeze" on using my debit card on anything besides bills, gas and groceries! Hmmm that might just be a goal of mine. I am a shopping addict! Good luck! Love the outfit and the curls in your hair!

  3. I love the ideas of the freeze and finding new was to wear outfits! I know you can do this and you've just inspired me to start reworking my closet too!

  4. Love this patterned top with the yellow cardi.
    Love the thought behind this fashion freeze February... and the trading that you're going to on the 28th sounds like a great way to get some pieces! Can't wait to see how you rework some pieces next month!

  5. I should totally shop my closet - I wear things the same way all the time. Time to mix it up I think.

  6. I love your boots! Also, smart move picking the shortest month of the year for a fashion freeze!

  7. Such amazing pictures ;) I had so much fun on Saturday! I think I should participate in this spending freeze with you. I need to focus on buying stuff for our house instead of stuff for my closet!



Feel free to leave me some love. It makes my heart smile.
