It has been a long time since I have felt pretty. Do you ever get in those moods? Lately, I have felt as if I didn't have anything to wear, that my make-up didn't look good, and that I just couldn't get my hair to do anything. I hate feeling this way, so I decided that this summer would be my summer of makeovers. I decided that I am not only going to makeover myself, but that I would throw in my car and a few rooms in my house to go along with it. Okay, so with this many things to makeover it may continue into the Fall!
My first step in my summer makeover was to work on my wardrobe. My wardrobe is beginning to look very pitiful, so it is definitely time to spruce it up! Here are a few of the new items I picked up on a recent shopping trip to Ann Taylor Loft.
I think this shirt (above) is perfect with a pair of jeans.
They were out of my size in this skirt, so I ordered it on-line in this color and in black. I am still waiting for it to come in, but I think I am going to pair it with a solid tee.
The dress above actually looks cuter in store. It is dark gray and made from a very thick jersey material. I purchased a pink cardigan to go with it, so I could wear it to work.
The dress above was one I ordered on-line. I am still waiting for it to come in, so I have no idea how it is going to look on me. I hope it is cute. I love dresses and currently have very few that I like to wear.
On top of buying new pieces for my wardrobe, I have also promised myself to stop being lazy when it comes to getting dressed in the morning. I have a bad habit of only wearing outfits that are easy, so I end up wearing the same things week after week. Instead of doing this, I am going to put together my outfit for the day the night before. I am also going to have a back-up outfit in case I decide I don't like the designated outfit. A girl has to have choices! :)
I hope you enjoyed my first post in my summer makeover journey. Stay tuned! Tomorrow night I am going to a class to learn how to better put on eye make-up. Maybe I will learn some fun tips and tricks to share with you!
