what i wore this week {hanging on to winter edition}

wondering what this series is about? read here to find out more…

It’s that fun day of the week again! :D I live in Texas, and I have to admit I’ve been a little bit worried about the fact that the temperature has been staying in the 70’s in early February. And then they have the bathing suits out at Target! {I mean, really? February? They are seriously on top of it!} Oh, and then the flowers started blooming and the bugs came back out! It was little bizarre.

I’m totally not prepared for another scorching southern summer just yet, so I was relieved when the weather turned cold again last week! 28 degrees? Yes!!! {to all of my northern friends, I’m sorry, dear ones! I hope winter is short for you if you want it to be!}

I pulled out the stripes {love ‘em!}, and paired my $15 Loft top with my thrifted $7 Citizens of Humanity jeans and my $8 Gianni Bini leather wedges from eBay. Oh, and my bigger-than-Texas hair. The wind was blowing, I promise! {you should see what happens when I use volumizing shampoo…;)}

And then the stripes again!

This one was lots of Old Navy: shirt- $12ish?, sweater, $3, and the scarf from last year, along with my $7 trouser jeans from GW/AE, my $1 thrifted bracelet, and my everyday shoe, the gray Jessica Simpson leather wedge from Marshall’s, $20.

I professed my love of stripes to Abbie the other day and asked her what in the world I will do when stripes go out of style… and she answered, “um, still wear them?”

Such a good point.  Why, yes, I think I will! :D

That’s why I like her. :)

And a couple of weeks ago I found a bin of clothes I’d forgotten about in the back of the attic with this little $4 Goodwill/Abercrombie sweater in it!

{don’t you love it when that happens? It’s like finding money in your coat pocket from last year, but better! so much fun!}. I wore it with my favorite skinny jeans, $7 from Goodwill/American Eagle, and my investment leather pumps, {Giani Bini from Dillards, $27.}

And I can’t wait to wear this pretty little thing the hubs got me for V-day this week:IMG_8647

It’s from Target and it’s such a happy scarf with flowers, orange and teal! Colors for spring, all gladly worn in our Texas “winter”… ;)

What has your winter been like this year?
Are you still holding out for more like me? ;)
