Remember a while back when I did a post that included a few outfits? Well several of you all enjoyed that, so I figured that while I was packing to leave for Costa Rica on TUESDAY (holla!), I would snap a few shots of my wardrobe for your viewing pleasure.
As I explained before, the idea of me doing a wardrobe post is hilarious. I spent the better part of my childhood/high school years in jeans and baggy t-shirts. I had my hair in a pony tail like 85% of the time. And I think I only wore boots and tennis shoes. Like ever.
|Prime example--hair in braids, white volleyball t-shirt, |
orange boxer shorts, dirty tennis shoes.
First up, swimwear. We will have about 4 days at the beach and I intend on enjoying every minute. While we're there, I am going parasailing and we have been discussing a catamaran cruise to see dolphins and the sunset. So that's what we are going with attire wise. (Please note that I've been doubling up my running and doing a crap-load of crunches this week...way to procrastinate, Tiffany....nothing like trying on swim suits to get you in gear!)

Now, I also have to tell you about my traumatic shopping experience. Well I went out to stop at two stores and buy like three things. I came home with this. My mom would be proud.
Anyway, while I was shopping, I saw the seersucker wedges pictured in like every outfit above. Target. $24.00. I had to buy them. And then I wanted to wear them for GBaby's baptism on Sunday. So I needed a dress. I go to Ann Taylor Loft and find this adorable green dress, but didn't like the belt with it. So I go find a really cute belt. I put it all together and text it to my fashion advisors: ND Friend and Blonde OK Girl, both of whom approve.
I leave the dressing room and tell the sales girl what I'm doing, and she proceeds to tell me that green does not go with seersucker (she called it blue, didn't even know the proper name). Because of my prior inexperience with fashion, she freaked me out. So I text ND Friend and tell her about it. She says, "You tell her to tell that to this guy I know named TOMMY HILFIGER!" So, I bought the dress and here is what we've got planned for the baptism.
