The title is a little dramatic. All I meant was a brand of jeans- Paige, to be specific. Paige was my first brand of denim that I fell in love with. They are so simple and flattering (like on Kelly!). When I was fluctuating between a 24 and 25 I ended up selling all of my too large pairs, but never found any other ones to take their place. I was recently frequenting Evilbay and decided to esnipe a pair of Laurel Canyon jeans. Five days and $18 later I had a pair of great fitting, worn in jeans. Not bad!!

This challenge is to take traditionally summer pieces and make them appropriate for fall. I only own one sundress, and despite my efforts, couldn’t make it fall appropriate. Then I tried the shorts and boots look- not good. I don’t know how people look so cute doing that!! I just look like I’m confused about seasons. I figured I’d take the easy way out and use my sandals as my “summer item.” I wear sandals until it it drops below the 40′s. I know its a little funny, but I just love having my feet free instead of cramped into hot, blister-forming shoes. I threw on these cords I got from J. Crew ($19.99 in size 24 short). I absolutely love these pants, and wish I got them in every color. They aren’t super-flattering, but they could be worse. They are so comfortable though, and the colors are amazing!! These will definitely be getting a lot of wear!!
I mentioned in a previous post that this month, I only want to invest in versatile items that I will keep for a long time. But what items would those be? Well, these are my tentative items. I plan on doing a whole closet critique when I have time so I can better determine what items I’m lacking, and what I have an abundance of. Goal Items:
Flattering white button up blouse. 3/4 sleeve or long sleeve. Thicker, or at least enough to not have to layer under.
Tweed Pencil Skirt (love this and this!). I adore tweeds, especially blazers and skirts. I can never find them for reasonable prices, though.
Knee high black leather high heel boots. Hopefully classy enough to wear to work, but sexy enough to wear out. These might be what I’m looking for (well, in a much cheaper version).
Wool pencil skirt. The colors I’m choosing from are mustard, rust, and olive.
Welcome! I'm Amber, and this is my blog. I'm not fashionable enough to have a true "fashion blog," nor am I exciting enough to have a "lifestyle blog." So, this is my "share-my-random-thoughts" blog. Shopping, fitness, finance, meditation, healthcare, food... you get the idea. I throw some outfit pictures in there for some visual interest!
Thanks for stopping by. Contact me with any questions or comments. I love hearing from you!
