Saturday’s Fashions

Details: Necklace($15) and shoes(unknown, Target; Top, unknown; Skirt($4.99)

Today  was another one of those “try on a million and three outfits before you like what you’re wearing” days. I almost gave up after my second photoshoot (it takes so much energy to do pictures on rainy days. I don’t know why.) but after looking through a bunch of lovely Chictopia pictures, I decided I shouldn’t settle for an outfit that makes me feel frumpy.

And then, after finally putting this outfit together and taking some decent pictures, I realized that an awkward strand of my hair was loose and flying out where it shouldn’t have been. Thank goodness I know how to edit things like that away.

So! It’s Saturday! Which means that you get to choose which of my outfits you like best from last week. I know that I didn’t do a poll last Saturday,  but I’m not going to include those outfits in this week’s poll because there are only three of them… and I don’t feel like it. 😀 (To be honest, I don’t feel like doing anything today,  but I had to at least be presentable for my niece’s birthday party, so I got dressed.)

Random nice things about being healthier: 1. the ribbing on this shirt used to stretch a little too much and reveal whatever undergarments I was wearing. It doesn’t do that any more. 2. the lady working at Goodwill while I was jeans-shopping ( I have no pants. I realized that I do need pants for certain occasions. I want bright red ones.) held up a pair of size 9 jeans ( bit too small) and said “These ones are so cute; I bet you could fit your skinny butt into these.” 3. My uncle asked me this morning if I’ve lost weight.

I feel like every time I mention things about weight-loss, I’m either making it seem like I’m asking for compliments OR making it seem like I’m obsessed with my weight. I want you to know that I’m not doing either one. I just can’t help but point out things that make me happy, whatever those things may be. Sometimes it’s about my family, sometimes it’s about writing, sometimes it’s about my cat, sometimes it’s about weight. And whatever that thing is, I usually share it with you. Not for any other reason than that it makes me happy.

Just so you know.

Also, I have a tan and it is weird. In a good way. (I haven’t had golden skin in at least three years.)

I’m going to go try to write for a few minutes before I have to leave.

Have a beautiful Saturday!

New Feature: I have seen a lot of fashion bloggers include pictures of other ways they’ve styled a certain garment, and I like that idea. So I’m being a copycat.

Other ways I’ve worn this skirt and shirt:

    LOVE the outfit! Weather is funny… we just had rain, and now its gorgeous and sunny, but while we were having rain, you were having some nice days, so I figure our rain must have chosen a new target 😀 I think that this skirt and shirt combination work really well, and your hair looks perfect, not a hair out of place :p of course, now we all know that wasn’t how it was before it went through cleaning process… 😀 😛
    The polka dot dress with a scarf as a belt? Ingenious, and so cute! Love the dress 😀
    Anyways, off to enjoy my first weekend officially out of school for the summer xD 😀 😀
    Enjoy your weekend! (Hopefully the rain doesn’t last too long..)

    • Mara

      Thank you!
      Haha, it must have! Now it’s all rainy here, do you have sun? 😀
      Teehee. Don’t tell anyone. It’s a secret, that my hair isn’t perfect. 😉

      Yes, it is! I’ve seen a ton of fashion bloggers using scarves as belts, and I wanted to try it. Although I’m not sure what they do with the tied portion of the scarf, because it looks a little funky.

      Exciting! I hope you had an awesome official weekend out of school!
      It’s been sporadic, the rain. But it’s okay, because I like it. 😀

  • Demy

    Hi hi! You look awesome! 😀 I love love love this outfit! I really love everything about it! And that goes for every single outfit of this week. I did not know which one to vote. I want to vote all of them, honestly, but after much thought I voted the white dress… You look gorgeous and perfect every time though! 😀

    And I know that you don’t say these things about your weight in order to hear us say “Bravo!!”. I know that you do it for yourself and I have to admit that I’m jealous of your pretty body! I’m trying to eat healthier right now, because I don’t think I will feel good to go to the beach next month. 🙁 However it’s so good to see that all these people around you DO notice and make you feel that good! The Goodwill lady was so awesome! I would probably have kissed her lol! 😀 How did the shopping go? Did you find pants? Can’t wait to see you rocking your new finds 😀
    Bye bye! 😀

    P.S. YAY for the new feature! 😀

    • Mara

      Aww, thank you. 😀 I think the white dress is my favorite, too. (my brother bought it for me, so that might be why.)

      Oh, goodness. Swimsuit season… sigh. 😀 I’m glad that you’re trying to be healthier, but just so you know, you have a beautiful figure! (I’m with you about going to the beach, though. All those skinny people in bikinis. It’s hard not to feel self-conscious! (Not that I wear bikinis,because I don’t. BUT still.)) But being healthy is very good.

      Haha, I wanted to hug the goodwill lady! It was so funny, she kept coming up to me with jeans, and said “I’m going to play Barbie with you.” Unfortunately, none of them worked. But it was fun. 😀
