Sunday Social Week 4

It’s Sunday Social day again with Neely over at A Complete Waste of Makeup.

Sunday Social

This week’s topic  is all about fashion.  This was a tricky post for me to write because to be honest, I really don’t care that much about fashion.  I think that fashion is truly an art form, and that it can be a great way to express yourself. Unfortunately, I just lack fashion sense.  I’m all about comfort.  I work as a preschool teacher, and we have uniforms at work.  When I get home, I like to lounge around in comfy clothes.  My weekends usually consist of outdoor activities such as camping or fishing.  So you see, fashion doesn’t play a huge part in my lifestyle.  I do like to look nice if we go out to a nice restaurant or party, but I just have a few outfits that I wear all the time.  Horrible, I know.

What is your favorite store?

Ross, TJ Maxx, or Old Navy.

If you could afford anything and everything, which designer brand would you covet?

Geez.  I have no idea. I am extremely ignorant when it comes to fancy, shmancy fashion.  I don’t pay attention to things I know I can’t afford.

Must have closet staple?

Jeans and a T-shirt.  It’s boring, I know, but comfortable and casual is just the way I roll. I once had a friend joke that my style is like a cartoon character because I wear almost the same thing everyday.  Haha… Sad but true.  Fashionista I am not. 

Favorite kind of shoes? (brand or type)

I absolutely love my Teva flip flops.  They are so comfortable! The bottom of the shoes conform to your feet and the straps don’t hurt or irritate my feet at all. I pretty much live in these all summer.


I don’t own a pair of TOMS, but I really want one.  They are really cute, and I love that they donate a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair you buy. 

Best clothing deal you've ever gotten? (sale or amazing find)

When I started student teaching in college, I pretty much needed an entire wardrobe.  Jeans and T-shirts are not professional attire, and all of my previous jobs provided uniforms.  I really lucked out.  I just happened to be shopping at JC Penny during their huge clearance sale,  I got an entire wardrobe of slacks, capris, shirts, skirts, and dresses for about $200.  Seriously… I got brand new clothes for two to three dollars an item.  The great part was that none of them looked too “teachery". Crazy.  I have yet to find a sale that great again.

Style you'd love to try?

I would love to learn how to accessorize without feeling silly or spending a fortune.

Well, that’s my take on fashion.  Thank God for Pinterest and the blog world, or I would really have a hard time when I need to dress up.
