Two outfits in one day, yes people I’m on a roll! HAHA! So you know how I talked about the simple and classic Sunday attire? Well, here is a more casual outfit that’s still Sunday Best appropriate. As much as I love the fall & winter, Louisiana is way to hot for tons of layering. So you better believe that if there’s a hint of wind and the weather drops below 75 degrees, I’m searching the closet for my boots and sweaters! Here, I layered a cream cardigan and chambray shirt, being sure to push up the sleeves for affect. And I paired it with a new leopard print skirt and some of my favorite bootie heels. To accessorize I added cream and gold jewelry, some older pieces from BRFS, and my rose gold MK watch. I’m still playing with the styling of my hair, so it’s just a dry, chunky twist out.
Shoes: Clarks Women’s Heath Wren Booties
Skirt: Banana Republic
Chambray Shirt: Old Navy (mine is woman’s shirt but this men’s is more similar to the one I have)
Cardigan: Banana Republic Factory Store (BRFS similar)
Necklace: BRFS (similar Ann Taylor version)
Earrings: BRFS (these are the same as mine but a diff. color & retail, not factory)
Yesterday, I was feeling fancy. & if you follow me on snapchat you would’ve seen my shameless self promotion and me jamming to Beyonce’s “Feeling Myself” lol– my username is callynnlynell, btw! You guys know that since I’ve gained weight, I don’t really view myself the way I used to. At times I don’t always see the beauty, even though I know it’s there, and when I look at pics it’s almost depressing to see how big I allowed myself to get. But no worries, I’m not depressed and I’m working on it! It is nice, though, to have days like this–where I feel fancy. Sure, I see the roundness in my cheeks and my boobs look like implants, lol, but I still look hot–I don’t care what anyone says! Some days, you just have to brush it off and tell yourself that you look amazing, no matter what! There’s no reason to beat yourself up; just use what you see now as motivation to change & become what you want to be in the future. I may not be forever 21, but I am forever beautiful.
Dress: Forever 21
Shoes: Steve Madden
Bracelet: Banana Republic Factory Store
Necklace: Banana Republic Factory Store
The ring and smaller bracelet are from my mother and are quite old, so I don’t have links for those! Also, the Banana Republic Factory Store site has a very limited selection & their jewelry isn’t on there at all, so I linked to something I would’ve worn from the retail store.
