JRaab’s Closet – #1

Today I am excited to link up with Sarah and Shanna for their weekly fashion linkups to showcase “What I Wore Wednesday” aka WIWW.  I actually wore this dress last “Casual Friday” in the office.  I usually always think about what I am going to wear the next day before falling asleep but after being sick and living in sweatpants and a snuggie the past 2 weeks, I have been feeling pretty uninspired.  So what’s a girl to do?  Pinterest of course!  I just searched “Casual Friday” and a bunch of super cute outfits (and funny cartoons) popped up!

This outfit in particular peaked my interest because I had a similar sweater and jeans and couldn’t remember the last time I wore them.

And here is my take on it:

Both the sweater and jeans are from Old Navy, the boots are Steve Madden, and the necklace is one of my favs which I ordered online almost 2 years ago at the beginning of the whole “bubble necklace” craze.  Also, I swear I don’t wear this sweater all the time!  It has just had a lot of face time on the blog so far!

Fashion Friday – Mustard

Well I totally meant to post this days ago, but this week got away from me!  I have been a crazy, outfit pinning fool lately on pinterest and decided I really needed to start using my pins for daily outfit inspiration.  I have been obsessed with mustard tones this fall (if you told me this a few years ago, I probably would have said ewwww) and have recently purchased a mustard skirt, and cardigan (seen here!) both from The Limited.  So I have kept my eyes peeled when stalking pinterest to find ways to utilize both.  Which brings us to exhibit A:

I had all the essentials to create this look so I was pumped!  While getting ready I thought about trying it with my ‘ol faithful Steve Madden boots (that everyone and their mother seems to have – even my Mom has some similar!) and ended up being faced with a decision:

Excuse my creepy mirror selfies…

I instantly was sold on the boots option (mainly because I love the cozy feeling of socks + tights) but plan to utilize the pumps option in the future.  I sorta felt like I stepped out of Nashville, but I was ok with that!  Yay for outfit inspirations!

Shirt – Forever 21 (similar)

Skirt – The Limited

Sweater – Loft, from 2009! (similar)

Tights – Who knows?!  Target I think.

Boots – Steve Madden 

Necklace – Premier Designs (from when I hosted a party last year)

Happy Friday!! 🙂

Wild Wednesday!

I have currently found myself OBSESSED with leopard print!  It goes with everything and can make an outfit pop!  I find myself thinking up random outfits (and getting inspired by pinterest and blogs) and dreamed up this little number this morning while working out at boot camp (because I am pretty much always thinking about what I am going to eat, or what I am going to wear while working out):

Shirt – Frenzi (random h00chie store in Lewisville)

Pants – Limited, Cassidy Fit Bootcut (from 2010)

Belt – Limited

Shoes – Payless (from 2011) Similar

 I went to limited yesterday because I had an expiring coupon, and haven’t been in there in what felt like forever!  I made out like a bandit!  Most everything was 40% off on top of my coupon.  I ended up getting the above mentioned leopard belt, 2 cardigans, the cutest iPhone cover I have ever seen, and a random ring (to push my total to 100 so I could get $30) off.  My total was only $56!  I guess I won’t be upgrading to the new iPhone 5 anytime soon – this cover is too cute!!  It will keep me happy with the iPhone 4 for the time being!  Happy Wednesday!
