OOTD: Sometimes Oldies are Goodies

While I love Forever 21 for its trend, lower priced, accessible fashion, I have low expectations of the lifespan of the clothing I buy from there.  If I can get 5 or so wears out of an item, I would call it a win.  That's why every time I pull out this jersey dress from my closet, I'm astounded that it's still perfectly functional.  I bought this dress for something like 10 bucks 3 years ago and its been quite regularly rotated into my wardrobe.  I love the bold blue color, the length, the deep V that allows for all sorts of different camis to be worn under it.  It can be belted, left alone, worn with shoes of a variety of types, or whatever.  And here it is again, the holy grail -- an inexpensive workhorse of my wardrobe:

Outfit Details
Dress: Forever 21
Cami: Guess
Cardigan: Banana Republic Factory
Leggings: Macy's INC
Boots: Anthropologie Pebbled and Primped Boots

It was cold and rainy today. I played soccer for 3 hours in it and was cold to my bones for pretty much the rest of the day.  I tend to wear skirts or dresses plus boots when it rains so that I don't have wet pant hem syndrome, which drives me nuts.  This was a nice, cozy outfit to get me through another work party.  

The last picture is something requested by one of my Facebook friends.  See others doing jumping pictures like this here: http://yowayowacamera.com/.  Go Yowayowa! 

What do you do to stay warm on cold days?  Thanks for stopping by, see ya tomorrow!


  1. I love the bright blue too! When it's raining outside, I usually like to curl up in bed to watch a lot of Netflix, only getting up to look at what's in my pantry.

    I miss my south bay ladies! Let's hang out soon :D I'm gonna mosey over to Liezl's blog now...

  2. Mmm..netflix, blankets and food? Best combo ever! We should definitely hang soon!
