Style File: Summer 2011 30 for 30 Part 1

This post is a part of 30 for 30 month. I believe that these first 4 outfits were worn at the end of June and beginning of July.

Rue 21 colorblock top-thrifted, green slim fit pants with side zippers/pockets-Dots, double wrap rope belt-ShoeDazzle, chain necklace-Target, Paulo Corelli boots-thrifted.

For this outfit I simply paired a top I’ve had for a while with these comfy pants that I scored super cheap at Dots earlier this year with my Paulo Corelli boots & Target necklace (both previously seen here). I was excited to try wearing these belts that I bought from ShoeDazzle as a DazzleDeal, All the Rage in white. It included 4 belts and a hat. Up til now I’ve always been a very occasional wearer of belts. This is probably my favorite of the 4 belts because you can wear it with so much stuff and it’s comfortable.

Liz Claiborne faux patent leather bag-thrifted, Predictions boots-thrifted

I wore this when I went to see Bad Teacher. I mainly just wanted to wear these awesome boots (previously seen in this post). that I had snagged recent to then. I have worn them often since then when it hasn’t been to hot to do so. So I just put something simple together. I used the same necklace & belt from the previous outfit. These are a favorite pair of jeans that I wear often (also seen here). I’ve had this bag for a few months and still love it. It’s bigger and has short handles, which are both out of the ordinary for me in a bag, but the fun style makes up for any annoyance those cause.

Clarks boots-thrifted

I put this together one day mainly to wear these leggings and then saw this dress I had bought from Ruelala a while back but hadn’t worn and this belt I had bought in that ShoeDazzle DazzleDeal that I mentioned. I wear these boots all of the time (previously seen here. They are really comfy. The whole outfit was fun and comfortable.

I bought this dress from Dots on sale a while ago. It’s 2-3 sizes too big but I figured that I would wear it as a tent dress like the models do. However since I bought all of these belts I’ve been belting it up when I go out and then wearing it beltless (more comfy) around the house. I decided that I had to wear my Cardiff bag (they don’t have tangerine anymore but you can still get it in brown or black) from ShoeDazzle with this outfit. Plus I added a ShoeDazzle belt, Dots cuff and my butterfly cowboy boots (also seen in spring, I reckon).

Style File: Cinco de Mayo

I didn’t do anything particularly interesting yesterday but it was Cinco de Mayo and you know how I love any excuse to dress differently. I decided to wear the colors of the Mexican flag, green, white and red. My only challenges were my lack of red clothing and trying to avoid looking like I was dressed for Christmas. I spotted this white American Apparel skirt in my closet that I got super cheap from Rue La La last year when the American Apparel company started having trouble. Then the rest of the outfit came to me easily. The second photo shows the actual colors. The 1st I fiddled with for fun.
