Reworking the Wardrobe

Sometimes it really sucks being an adult. Like take me back to college-high school, even! All of the stresses that come with being an adult- bills, parenting, jobs, bills, random adult crap, bills. Totally blows sometimes, am I right?

We have Charlotte starting at a day care at the end of the month, and although she will only be going two days a week (thankful for my Mother and Father in Law who are able to watch her two days a week), but the two days is enough to affect our budget.

Ughhhhhhh I despise that word (almost as much as the word moist, but not quite). With this new found budget that my husband and I have (read: no spending on super fun things), I realized that I have to tighten my purse strings and not shop as much. No fun, but necessary, am I right?

As much as I would love to be able to shop freely and whenever I want, that's not the case these days, so I kind of decided to take it on as a challenge and hit my closet to re-wear, re-work anything and everything!

So don't be surprised if you see me wearing and wearing the same thing, styled differently. After all, isn't that what this blog is kind of about? Versatility, affordability?

Today's outfit was all about comfort (which I feel like most of my outfits are about, anyway). These overalls have just the right amount of stretch to feel comfortable enough to wear to work, and then get down on the floor and play with my girls. Anything that I can wear and transition from being "Rebecca" to "Mommy" works for me. I last wore these overalls more casually (you can check it out here and here).







Outfit Details:
Overalls: Target /// Top: Old Navy (similar) /// Shoes: Forever 21 (cute option) /// Blazer: Kohls (similar) /// Purse: Target

  1. Right there with you....do I want that new sweater or a (insert one of the many pieces of furniture we need for our new home) ? Shop the closet it is ;) You look adorable!

  2. You know, I never would have thought to mix overalls into the classic-ness that is stripes and a blazer, but I really like how you are working it. And I totally get having to rework your closet due to budget changes. I ended up doing a full 6 months spending ban on clothes a few years ago, and I quickly learned how to keep what was in my closet interesting. You seem to be off to a great start!
