What I Wore This Week (Frugal Fashion)

This summer, I’m taking the Get Your Pretty On Summer Style Challenge.

So far, I’m loving this challenge and can’t believe how much it’s encouraging me to get dressed in a cute outfit every day, try some new outfit pairings, and just enjoy putting together looks. Plus, I LOVE the Facebook Group where women share their own variation of each day’s outfit. 

I thought it would be fun to share a round-up of my outfits from this past week in hopes that it might inspire you with ideas and or encourage you to take a little time to mix and match items you already have to create some cute outfits!

(Want to see more outfits? See last week’s What I Wore post.)

Here’s what I wore this past week:

I wore a dress for the third time in two weeks!!! I think that dresses are growing on me, thanks to this GYPO Style Challenge and your encouragement on my daily outfit of the day posts.

Dress: Amazon
Jewelry: Kohl’s Clearance Rack
Shoes: Zulily Sale

I really, really like this dress. It’s not practical for every day wear, but it was perfect for Sunday morning!

Okay, a big thing I’ve discovered from taking pictures every day of my outfits is that I have a bad habit of pairing dressy tops with casual bottoms. And I don’t like how it looks.

But I didn’t realize this until I started taking pictures of my outfits! Which is one of the many reasons this has been such a good experiment for me to do!

Shirt: Amazon
Shorts: Stitch Fix
Shoes: Amazon
Necklace: Kohl’s Clearance Rack

I love this outfit! Jesse and I went on a date on Tuesday evening and went to this fun place called Homestead Manor, where he took this picture of me.

Shirt: Amazon — no longer available
Jeans: Stitch Fix
Jewelry: Kohl’s Clearance Rack
Shoes: Zulily Sale

I think I really like this outfit, too! It was supposed to be a blue and white striped shirt for the GYPO Style Challenge, but I don’t have one, so I subbed this tee.

And I got crazy brave and wore YELLOW shoes, as per the encouragement of Alison who put together the GYPO Style Challenge! I don’t even know when the last time is that I’ve worn yellow!!! And I shocked myself by actually liking them!

Shirt: Cents of Style
Shorts: Amazon
Shoes: Amazon
Jewelry: Stitch Fix (earrings) Bracelet (Amazon)

You all told me I needed to get some white shorts, so I finally got some! See? I’m learning… slowly but surely!

The outfit for this day was supposed to be a grey shirt + bright colored shorts. I was going to be inside most of the day and it was rainy for half the day, so here was my version of the day’s outfit.

I thought it looked okay hanging in my closet, but once I saw this picture I was like, “Really?? That’s not how I thought it looked at all!!” And I decided that this wins my Worst Outfit of the Week award. Facebook agreed with that. 😉

Sometimes, you just need to laugh when you put together an outfit that you and Facebook realize is just a bad, bad choice.

Shirt: Cents of Style
Jeans: thredUP
Shoes: Amazon — oh and they are bright white, they just look grey because of the photo shadows
Jewelry: Kohl’s Clearance Rack & Amazon

Also, in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve learned that I wear blue a LOT. I need to expand my wardrobe colors. 🙂
