Unfair fashion

I am not a blogger to talk about sweat shops or copycats. I don't ramble about stuff like that. I leave that to people who know more about it. You know what I find unfair?

I have rockin legs, but due to being a top heavy apple leggings and skinny jeans just don't work for me. Trust me I have tried. Over and over again. I so want to wear boots tucked into my jeans or leggings with a tunic but it just doesn't ever look right.   follow me on pinterest     barefootinboots

 It's sad that i have both leggins and skinny jeans in my closet. It's unfair that i see all that I see all the cute (small chested in most cases) girls on Pinterest wearing my outfits!

The inhumanity of this trend being unattainable for my body shape. I have a little butt and strong sleek calves. (My thighs could be more toned but they wouldn't jiggle in the leggings.)

Passionate Fashion - Review

I was lucky enough to be approached by to choose an item to review.

After a lot of deliberation, I decided on a drapy black basic top. They have a LOT of cute dresses, but I am just not in the market for a dress right now.  Currently I am digging the flowy, drapy tops and the one I chose fit the bill. It has a chameleon like ability to be dressed up with black or sparkly pants and a black belt or dressed down as I chose to with jeans and a cropped jacket.

I love that the neckline on  this shirt adds some flare and design. This neckline, along with the drapy dolmain sleeve shape, makes this basic black shirt POP.

This shirt is super soft and comfortable. It is perfect for my current life and style. The people at were great to work with and I am so glad I got the chance to try their site out.

Jeans - Lee (thrifted) shirt
Jacket - (thrifted)
Booties- Simply Vera via Kohls (clearance)
Belt - Kenneth Cole via Marshall's

HEART breaker

I saw... I tried... I fell in love!!!!!!!!!!!

I had a coupon and it was on clearance...

My husband said no....

We are on a tight budget with a little one and me not working....


But here I am more than a week later MOURNING said shoe! It would have been $15.

The same shoe from the same store online would be $50 and that isn't counting shipping....

My heart HURTS!!!!!!!!!


Pathetic I know... but true.

Hate or Heart?

Do you HATE or HEART............


What are your feelings on Wayfarers?

I must say that I HATE more than HEART them.. I don't think anyone looks cute in them.

Wardrobe Changes

So it is supposed to be.... drumroll.... almost 50 degrees in the next week!

I am excited to pull out some cuffed jeans... and to dress my baby in lighter clothes.

What Mom? I don't HAVE to wear long sleeves and long pants and layers alll my life? I thought that was part of this!

I mean my baby was born in October. She only knows bundling up.

 I can't WAIT to introduce her to grass and sun and warmth outside... in cute clothes!!

I have learned a lot about my clothing and minimalizing through being a mom.

I hope to talk more about that so stay tuned... and note I did NOT say minimalism. I am not there. I am just working my way through too much stuff, too many things, and too many interruptions to the life that I would rather lead.

DIY hand warmers

I lived the color of these cropped tights but I couldn't find a way to wear them that suited my body style. What to do? Cut them off, make a thumb slit, and wear them as hand warmers of course!

See what else I did with them...
