I like www.thepleatedpoppy.com and www.getyourprettyon.com for outfit ideas. They both have link ups each Wednesday where people share pictures of what they are wearing. I think those are good places to start to see real people wearing real clothes. I do a ton of copying from what I see on those sites.

I don't want to be overly spammy here, but I have been doing a series of what to wear when I travel on my blog. My fascination with fashion really kicked off when we took our three month road trip last year. I had such limited closet space that I really had to be intentional about choosing clothes that would work and would look good. Once I started pairing outfits together for that trip, I learned how to make my closet work more in my favor.

Anyway, this that shows how I packed/dressed for a three month road trip.

Sorry these are so big. I don't feel like resizing them right now. I've collected crosses since I was a kid, but lately I've been actually wearing them, instead of just hanging them all over my room.


I lost a bunch of weight, so had to buy all new clothes and was so excited to buy a new belt again. I'd been wearing baggy shirts for so long and hadn't worn a belt in years! Also, check the teal sparkle nails! They are vinyl shields from https://www.facebook.com/dfwjamberry I love them, because they have no chemical smell putting them on or peeling them off, but they last up to three weeks! I even buy them for my daughter now. She loves them too. My new friend Noel sells them, and can give home parties. That's how I discovered them. Beth threw a party at her house for Noel. I was thrilled to find them and to meet Noel. She's really a sweet person.


I'd also given away all my boots when I'd lost all hope of losing the weight and ever fitting into them again, so after a year of keeping it off, I treated myself by buying my first pair of cowboy boots! It was a real thrill! I'm really surprised by how comfortable they are. I had no idea!


I like this shirt because it matches the boots. I also like stretchy bracelets, not hard or bangles, or things that jingle around. In this picture I'm making a weighted blanket. I'm not a seamstress, but it was my kid's birthday, so... I did my best.

Jeanne, The boots, I love. Congrats on those! But, my favorite is the second picture with the cute belt and the cross. Very nice!

Okay, now that you quoted me, I feel even more guilty about the enormous size of these photos.

I love that tie dye shirt. It's got lots of lycra so it's cotton, but super stretchy and shows off my new skinniness. Ha! The spell check didn't flag skinniness! I thought for sure I was making that word up. Guess not! LOL!

The cross in that shot is so cool. It's turquoise glass, with cut out silver on top of it. I love that one.

Hmmm... Search Lindsay Grounds and then click "pinners" when the results come up. My picture is the same one as on here- the peacock feather.

I looked at the pleated poppy, and it made me feel like a lazy slob compared to her
