Affordable Fashion for Every Day

Real Life


I started writing this blog 3 years ago. What started out as a challenge from a coworker has turned into an adventure like I never imagined. It’s been challenging, fun and, did I mention challenging? I write pretty much every day and I don’t employ a professional photographer except on rare occasions. I don’t get paid to write. What you see is literally what I wear. Every day. Photos are taken with my iPhone, tripod and a remote on my front porch every morning before I go to work. This is real life, people. My very ordinary life. And I love every minute of it.

I had to take today’s photo super quick – it was freezing outside!! I decided on another stripe experiment – this time with a dark grey sweater. I love the versatility of this shirt – I’m on the lookout for a short sleeved or sleeveless version for the warmer months. I’ll keep you posted on my search!

Happy Anniversary to me!

Today’s Outfit:

Striped long sleeve t-shirt: H&M USA
Merona dark great sweater: Target
Denim leggings: GAP Outlet
Bandolino black leather riding boots: DSW
Green scarf: Target

Have a lovely, healthy day!

    I bought a similar striped tee with short sleeves at Christopher & Banks last summer. I wore it every week. Their tees are also modest, not too low in front.

    I really like the stripe peeking out of the sweater (and the other times you’ve done it)….I think it adds a little extra pizzazz to the outfit!!! Nice work & congrats on the anniversary! Jodie

    Every morning I look forward to seeing your post and what you are wearing. WE have very similar taste and style. I also appreciate you sharing your weight loss journey. I am on one myself and have lost 14 pounds so far in 2015. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Congratulations on staying with your blog. I can’t imagine coming up with new wardrobe combinations everyday! I appreciate seeing your ideas. They are doable for those of us that live a more casual lifestyle. Also it is good to see someone in my age group that has lost weight and kept it off. I find this more difficult as I get older. If you have more ideas to share…please do. I’m wishing some warmer weather will come your way soon.

    Do you know if that same long sleeved striped t-shirt is still available at H&M? I checked their website but I’m not sure which one it is that you purchased from them. Thanks!

    • Hi Claire,
      I haven’t been to H&M in a few weeks, so I’m not sure if they still have the striped shirts. I’ll try to get out in the next few days and check it out.

        Thanks – so nice of you!


        • Hi Claire! I went to H&M this week and they still have the striped t-shirt. In my store it was right by the dressing rooms with all the other t-shirts. Hopefully one of the sales people can you find it in your local store. I looked online but didn’t see the same shirt. Good luck!


          • Claire on said:

            Thank you – so nice of you to check for me. I will take a trip to the nearest H&M as soon as I can. I’ve actually never been to one so I’m looking forward to it! Thanks again!!!
