Fashion Friday

This whole thing started with a Facebook post that I was cutting up a Fleet Farm t-shirt to make a scarf.  I have been on the hunt for a mustard colored scarf for about a month now, but haven’t found one yet.  Out of desperation to complete an outfit, I made one out of a mustard/gold colored t-shirt.
Apparently that t-shirt belonged to Paul.
Even though it has been in my drawer for the last 6 months…

Sorry Fleet Farm shirt.

Anyway, the next day I posted a picture of my outfit with the scarf in action.  I got a great (unexpected!) response and a request to post more about where I had purchased the pieces to my outfit.
I’m not gonna lie – I have always loved fashion.  I’m not talented enough to design my own clothes, but I love taking what I see online and in stores and making it happen with what I have in my closet.  One of my challenges is that I am plus-sized.  So finding outfits that are “cute” can sometimes be a challenge!  I’m hoping to do more of these posts – if a few things happen:

1.        I find a better place to shoot the pictures J

2.       I get better at taking the pictures…

3.       I remember to take the pictures…

4.       I find the time to blog the pictures…

Yeah, we’ll see how this goes.
So here’s the outfit I wore to my staff meeting yesterday:
