If you remember from last post I mentioned that a best friend of mine told me she believed I liked having some newer outfits or pieces to my wardrobe because it gave me an outlet to be creative. She also knew my frustration of not having the money or time to look for clothes or outfits, so the other night she came to spend the night at our house (yay! a girls night) and lo’ and behold she brought with her some clothing and accessories in hopes of a clothing swap so she could snag some of my maternity wardrobe. God is good! (Read last post here).
So this post is about reviewing and showing off what she brought me, as these are different and typically not what I would wear but am dying too. I hope you can give me some pointers or help with how to style some of these.
A mixture of spring colors and fall colors/prints.
Since spring is in the air let me review these two shirts. The longer sleeve pink tunic looking shirt is BEAUTIFUL in color with sequins, however when it is on me my shoulders and arms look bulky making me look bigger than I am in those areas. The underarm area looks weird too. To hide this issue on cooler days I thought of pairing this with a denim jacket or white blazer/white pants and heels or wedges? What do you think?
For the floral shirt I thought an almost cobalt blue pencil skirt or midi skirt might work or denim jeans? The shoe possibilities are endless but any thoughts?
This shirt trips me up! I guess any darker color skirt or jean such as a blue or purple might tone this down a bit. What do you think? The scarf is lovely but I don’t know yet what to do with it. Any suggestions or scarf tips you can give me would be great.
The above flowy shirt looks lovely on me, but the sleeves puff out alittle more than I would like, but oh well. The necklace is pretty but short (you will see in my next photo). There is that scarf again. I would like to pair the shirt and necklace but still thinking on how, since the necklace seems short or to need something more as you will see below.
Have you ever done a clothing swap?
Some ladies at my church have been talking about it and I hope they will. Heck! I may pray about helping out or administering it, because it is a blessing and fun.
Have a great day! Next post will be “Bloggers Who Have Inspired Me.”
