This post is a part of 30 for 30 Month.These outfits were worn in July and August.

4th of July

headband-Target, lei-Dollar Tree, Mossimo Supply Co. patriotic tank top-Target, Route 66 denim shorts-eBay, Fashion Bug red velvet wedges-thrifted

luckily my mom likes to do stuff like this sometimes too

I just threw this together for fun on the 4th of July. I had picked up the headbands the week prior at Target (also seen here), had the leis from last year. I wear these shorts all of the time. I snagged them on eBay like a year ago. I had found a pair of yellow shorts that I really liked the fit of on a clearance sale at Kmart so I hunted down 3 more in various colors on eBay (all from the same seller, yay!). I love these wedges that I’ve had for a while but I don’t have a lot of red clothing so they rarely get worn.

GAP black tee-thrifted, belt-Walmart, green Buddha bracelet-gift, brown cuff-Dots, green, slim fit pants-Dots

Clarks boots-thrifted. (Yeah, I wear men's watches, deal with it.)

This is just something standard that I would wear but I tried to make it more interesting by adding the cuff (seen here, so are the pants), belt (seen here) and bracelet.

Just For Wraps denim dress-Dots, pink stone bracelet-gift, pink fabric belt-thrifted, heart necklace-gift.

Flex from ShoeDazzle (Crossfire Strap by Pony)

I wanted to be comfortable on that day so I wore my comfy denim dress (seen here) with my new flats from ShoeDazzle. During the BOGO sale in which I bought the Vivica wedges I also snagged these really fun gold shoes because I needed a new pair of slip ons to wear all of the time. ShoeDazzle calls them Flex because they are totally flexible. The original name given to them by Pony is the Crossfire Strap. They are sold out at ShoeDazzle but you can snag them here. I love them and wear them most days. I think of them as my space shoes, which is so silly but fun. The necklace and bracelet were both gifts from my sister at random times that I added for visual interest. (I suck at finding costume jewelry that I like so I’m happy that she figures it out for me.).

Prospirit Athletic Gear black tank top with silver design, heart necklace-gift, Route 66 denim shorts-eBay, Clarks boots-thrifted

I wore this outfit when I was attempting to go see The Clarks play at the fair. I needed something that said sort of rocker but also comfortable and hillbillyish. So I put on this tank top which I’ve had for years. It’s actually a sports top with a built in bra and everything but I usually just wear it anytime in the summer because I like the design. Back when I was living in Maryland and would run out of slutty bar tops I would often substitute this, which fits in at your small bars. Other than that it’s the same shorts, necklace and boots seen in outfits above.

My plan was to hang out for a while, bother my bro (who was working the fair), watch a pig race and then see The Clarks perform. However on the way there a torrential downpour started. I called and the teen girl working the phone made it sound unlikely that they would go on. Of course I later found out that they did but it’s not like I was up for walking/standing around in the rain for hours anyhow. Every time I try to see this band (from PA so they play in the area fairly often) they cancel the show or something like this happens. I think I’m done trying.

So I ended up going somewhere else where I looked inappropriate (which is the usual for me anyway.)

For some reason sometimes when I take photos from a certain spot in my room they come out fuzzy. These are usually the best shots. Plus I think that I’m done and then realize that I have to hurry up and take some more. So in the interest of having a couple of shots that weren’t blurry the second two are extremely close.

The idea here was to do a red, white and blue outfit. I wasn’t going to do this because I lack much red clothing (I don’t think that it flatters my coloring) and had already done this similar Style File post last month, except that one was red, white and green instead of red, white and blue. However when I bought these super cute star flip flops recently I knew that I had to try to put an outfit together.

I feel the need to point out that I am aware that the exposure on these photos sucks but I do have the terrible Pennsylvania weather to blame for that. We only get about 59 sunny days per year. I did try to lighten them as much as I could to show the clothes. I wear this tank top a lot during the summer. In fact, you can go see 2 past outfits that I wore it with here and here.

As for wear-ability, the last time that I wore this skirt I wore leggings under it. Apparently when you wear it like this you get sweaty and feel like you are wearing a trash bag as a skirt. Also it was the first time that I wore these flip flops and I was squeaking while walking through a store (I sounded like a broken grocery cart), no bueno. So I probably will wear those items mainly around my backyard in the future if we’re having a cookout/swimming or whatever.

I only wore this medal at my house for fun for this pic. My mother won it recently at the Senior Games.
