Today I’m collaborating with Zaful.
#OOTD is an appropriate title, right?! Ha. I couldn’t think of anything catchy, so there ya go.
I am not a fashion blogger. You will not find $80 jeans on this blog. I am a mom, a frugal person, a thrifty lady, and overall…. I can’t justify paying $80+ for pants. I find most of my clothes at thrift stores or on sale. I did pay full price for the pants I’m wearing in these photos. You should know though that they’re from Walmart. I paid $15 for them because why would I pay $80+ for a pair I can pay $15 for?! Plus, they fit beautiflly.
Side note, I ran to Walmart the other day specifically hoping to snag a pair of pants that actually fit. I’ve been on a weird weightloss thing and all of the sudden my 12s were falling off of me. I went in hoping to walk out with a size 8. I grabbed a few pairs, a few brands, and a few sizes. Let’s talk about how the size 11s wouldn’t pull up my thighs, but I walked out purchasing an 8 petite. It’s all about the brands! And WHY WHY WHY are brands soooooo different that I bought an 8, but an 11 wouldn’t even pull up?! WTF is that nonsense?! Irritating. That’s what it is.
I know you’ve seen me post about this sweater. I’ve worn it a handful of times now, and I kid you not when I tell you that I get at least two compliments each time I wear it. It’s fantastic and warm.
The point of today’s post… to show you my cute outfit and to tell you how important it is to just know your measurements. Look at my pants story above. As a matter of fact, I ordered some (major on sale) pants from Old Navy not long ago and I knew that I’d be returning them before they even got here. I just knew they wouldn’t fit right, I hoped and prayed, but I know my measurements and I knew that they just wouldn’t. Guess what — I was right! They didn’t fit properly and they left me with a saggy crotch. THAT IS SUCH AN OBNOXIOUS THING WHEN IT COMES TO PANTS!
Do you have any shopping woe stories like mine to share? I’d love to hear them! Leave a comment or shoot me an email & tell me all about it. And please, where is the best place to find some curvy, short peopled jeans? If you know, definitely share! Thanks 🙂
