Passionate Fashion - Jeans and a Tank Top

I wore this outfit last week or two weeks ago?? Oh wow is time flying. Anyway, I wore it to go school clothes shopping. No, I don't go to school anymore and the shopping wasn't really for me. Not that I didn't buy some things. When the weather gets cooler, I will be debuting my new faux leather jacket. I am in love!

My sister and mother brought my sister's two school age kids + a 3 year old down to visit and hit up all the great stores that I have at my disposal.

Shopping back home includes Target, Vanity, Maurices, Christopher and Banks, Fashion Bug, Kmart, and Herbergers. That is about it. We thought it would be fun to get together where there are STORES!

In one evening we hit JCPenney, Old Navy, Kohl's, Yankee Candle, Forever 21, Justice, and Trade Secret. I thought it was a successful trip.

The next day my sis, her oldest daughter, and I hit up the local Marshalls. LOVE!

A few items purchased for me:
New cage heels (my husband was impressed I can walk in them. All 4+ inches of them.)
A brown swingy sweater vest thing
A blue tank top with embellishments (wore to the wedding, pics soon)
My leather jacket (thanks mom!)
A slub cardigan (to be showcased!) I have worn it nearly every day, it just isn't cool enough to wear it for an outfit. Can you believe it has been 80+ degrees in MN this week? CRAZINESS!

I put this outfit together for two reasons:
To be comfortable and be able to walk for hours with my sis, her 3 kids, and my mom
To look stylish while being comfy

Tank top and jeans are super easy but look nice. I added the necklace, earrings, and the scarf bracelet to bring the outfit up a notch. I liked it. I was comfortable but I felt pulled together.
