Spring break!

It's Spring break! I've dressed in my typical weekend clothes of crummy jeans, whatever tshirt, and a big sweatshirt on top pretty much the whole time.

But I receieved some second hand clothing recently, and I love them.

No makeup and possibly fighting a sinus infection, we went to Great Adventure for the day.
We met friends for an adults night out at a Beergarden, a likely cause of the aforementioned sinus infection.

I received a message yesterday that I should consider Type 4 rather than Type 3. We know that Type 4 worked for me, at least the clothing sort of did, but that it just didn't feel RIGHT.

And I think this is why I had such a rocky road of finding my type. When it comes to facial profiling, my face is not CLEARLY one type. I've asked on the unofficial boards, and have been pointed toward pretty much every type (including type 2, which is absolutely, positively, 100% NOT me....)

So today is animal print day on the official Type 3 board. I'm wearing it in my scarf and my handy Up wristband. I purchased this top from a Buy Sell Trade board on Facebook. I like it, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't really "go" with my Type 3 card.

Since I'm a bit rebellious, I've decided that the things that I LIKE and that LOOK GOOD, whether they're DYT appropriate or not, should be KEPT.

The 4 is strong with this one, for sure, but not the dominant I think.

Uh oh...

I'm in duplication zone.

I wore almost this exact outfit, though I couldn't find my belt anywhere, so went without:

I got this tank when I went thrifting last week. I never would have given it a second glance before, but it caught my eye, and I really think it looks amazing. I can't wait to see how it looks with my rust colored cardigan.

I do want to figure out a different style for the spring/summer. Cardigans are seriously getting old. I'm not sure what other route to go, though!

YAY Spring is coming!

I hit the thrift store on Monday (25% off day! WOOHOO!) and picked up a few thing, including this gorgeous teal top. It has an overlay to give it some texture and the open weave at the bottom. It seems it's a little bit shrunken but also a little too short for me to begin with, so I tried this tee underneath and it seems like it actually ROCKS.

I also got these flats at Kohls when I had some credit and a coupon. They're a nice plum color and fairly comfortable (so far).

MARCH! YAY! I'm so excited that spring is almost officially here!!

Today, I'm worried that I'm getting the stomach THING my son had Friday and my husband had Sunday/Monday. My body is fighting like Muhammad Ali... we'll see whether I'm Frazier or Ali this go....

Anyway, here's my outfit of the day. I wanted to wear something a little looser on the waist, and pulled these pants. They really aren't a favorite, and never have been, but they have a looser feel to them. I never know which shoes to wear with these, typically going for my black Mary Janes (which are slated for a painting, when I decide to end my shopping freeze).

I really want to find some work appropriate elastic waistband pants, which always reminds me of my grandmother Betty, who always said her daughter mocked HER elastic waistbands, until she then needed them too....

I REALLY want to go shopping. I want to hit the thrift stores near my work (though it seems there's never time) and just shop shop shop for more rusts and mustards and plums and teals....
