I know I cannot be the only one who absolutely crushes their feet just to wear shoes they love for a couple hours. Because that is how long I can wear these boots. Tops. Why do females cause themselves pain for fashion? Shoes aren’t the only thing I suffer for; 90% of the time, I dress for comfort, but that other 10% of the time, I am absolutely miserable. Whether it be in too tight jeans, because honestly, I’ve never found jeans that actually fit me everywhere they should, or a top I’m in love with, but the straps or sleeves fall every 2.5 seconds. Beauty is pain. Or at least 10% of the time.

My bare feet are very happy after a day full of errands in these boots; places to go, people to see, and things to do! That’s what my mom always says.

But, oh do I love these boots. The one con to thrifting is that you do not have multiple sizes of something to choose from.

I went thrifting for the first time in months today. It felt so good. I am not ashamed to admit that shopping, thrifting especially, is a bit of a high for me. Even one new piece can breath new life into my closet of the same clothes I have been staring at for months. The same clothes that I have left in that closet while I spend my days repeating outfits because I have been so uninspired.

I definitely want to make it a missing to bring back my monthly thrifting posts. It’s in writing, so I will be held accountable now!

Wedding planning is about to be full force, very soon. It’s not that we are procrastinators, it’s that we have no idea what we are doing and that makes it difficult when you are planning a DIY wedding. I am so glad that we have so many wonderful family members and friends who are willing to help! And who ever thought that I would thank God for Pinterest, but really, thank you God! I would be so lost. I am the most uncreative person.

Does anyone have any tips for planning a DIY wedding?

p.s. Please check out Mr. Ugly Mug’s new editing reel. He is looking for new projects and if you happen to know anyone in need of a short form video editor (no features at this time), please pass it along and feel free to contact me!

Maybe we could not have been kicked off the property if I was a normal person.

    looove this outfit 🙂 those two colors together are awesome!
    xo, cheyenne

  2. I can definitely relate and I’m sure 99% of women can too. I’ve been leaning more toward comfort lately with the bogus weather and pregnancy, but usually I am right there with you. Especially when it comes to shoes. My wide ass feet hate most heels. But I love them so my feet lose and I win.

    your hair is just stunning!! major hair envy here! love that necklace too 🙂 xx

  4. I really love the mix of gray and brown in this outfit. These pieces look super cool together. And I definitely know what you mean about fashion sometimes being painful. Though I tend to avoid shoes that absolutely kill me since the memories of the pain deter me. Most of the time my more comfortable pieces get worn the most.

  5. Loved this outfit! The colors tou chose look beautiful and that neckace is a just have 😉

  6. I love this look and your thrifted boots. I am looking forward to more thrifted posts. Xx Rachel

    Love all of your accessories here – the hat especially!

  10. Hahaha I can definitely relate to what you are saying. I have a pair of heels that I ordered on the internet and they are half a size too small on me. I love them SO much that I wear them anyway, but I can only last a couple of hours with them on or I will DIE. Lol. Anyway, you look so cute in this outfit! Especially love your hat 🙂

    I usually try to wear comfortable stuff, but sometimes you just can’t resist the pretty thing that kills. Love this look! I actually DIY’d a pair of jeans similar to those a while ago.

  13. that is a great pair of denim! I had a hard time planning my wedding too – and we didn’t do it all ourselves. Weddings are hard…DIY weddings are REALLY hard. Congratulations on your wedding! Have a happy Wednesday.

    this outfit looks so nice and you look gorgeous 🙂
    those shoes don’t look harmless at all from a distance but the most painful things never do anyway
    oh what us girls do for fashion haha, it reminds of a quote from Gossip Girl: ‘fashion knows no comfort’ which is kinda sadly true but at least we try to dress comfortable 🙂
    I don’t know if you’ve heard of the blog: ‘A Beautiful Mess’ but one of the bloggers had a wedding and she DIYed a lot of the items in the wedding so definitely check their blog, they do a lot of DIYs too which is good 🙂

    i can see why you suffer for those boots, they’re kind of amazing 🙂 i totally agree with you about thrifting. i too get such a high from it. you just never know what you’re going to find, and that’s the fun of it. you end up with amazing pieces you didn’t even know you wanted 🙂

  17. You are a fashion prodigy!! Making colors work together when I thought they should never be worn together.

I adore each comment!
