The holidays are finally here and this means that the festivities have finally began for many. This means that many of us are busy making shopping lists, busy shopping and planning for the days ahead. I’m not really make a list or shopping; honestly, that’s the one thing I hate about this season. The vehicle AND mall traffic alone, will make you want to give up shopping completely. If I do any shopping it will be online because let’s face it, the mall is a nightmare. The one place I do plan on raiding is the thrift stores. I love a good bargain and let’s face it, that is the one place that is usually not as crowded.
Speaking of shopping; a couple of weeks ago, I purchased these beautiful Donacaster wide legged trousers BRAND NEW WITH TAGS! Can you believe they retailed for $220 and I paid, $10.00 for them? Talk about a lucky score. While I intend to wear these in MANY different ways, I loved how they looked with this light/powdered blue turtle neck. I thought the outfit looked very monochromatic-esque and that appears to be a thing on the blog lately ( not intentional) but I loved how darker toned sweater looked with the pants. I had two shoes options that I wanted to wear – these bone color heels OR a pair of metallic blue heels. Ultimately I chose the bone color shoes because I wanted an outfit that was on the lighter side of the spectrum. I finished my look with a faux-faux-ostritch clutch and a high ponytail.
