What is the world coming to...........

I bought cowboy boots and skinny jeans!!!!!  I have wanted a pair of cowboy boots now FOR-EV-ER!  But they were either too narrow (pregnancy) or just to pricey for my taste. 

And the jeans, well, in my size are they REALLY skinny jeans???!!! When these jeans became popular again (remember the 80's???) I said NO WAY was I buying them.  Well last night I caved in!  I looked in Marshall's but couldn't find a pair that looked right.  Believe it or not I found a pair in  Target, they are the Converse brand and have the holes and all!  I hope I am not "dressing too young".  But thought they would be a fun addition to some of the longer shirts I have got recently and can wear my new cowboy boots and my Uggs with as well! 

I have never been a slave to fashion, I have always bought and dressed in what I like. I used to spend all my money (in my late teens and early twenties) on clothes and had a new outfit every Friday night.  Then I got married and became a mother, which is the best thing that's ever happened to me. However it's not the best thing that's ever happened to my closet, that's for sure!  After realizing that I will probably NEVER EVER be a size 4 again,  I have made an effort this year not to wear black yoga pants every-single-day and get dressed.   I do most of my clothing purchases in my favorite consignment and thrift stores.  But I do love TJ Maxx and Marshall's as well.  And if I have a GC I will go to Macy's, which is NOT very often.   But buying at thrift stores is a lot of fun and you can get such great deals on wonderful stuff!

Anyway, thought I would share my new 'duds!   Have you caved?  What are your favorites this season?

I'm linking up at A Few of my Favorite Things over at Laurie's!

You go girlfriend! Wear what you like and what makes you happy ~ I don't know about any trends I have caved to... I am wearing bootcut jeans and shoes with heels ( boots, high heels, sandals) I usually discover that I like the trends about the time they all hit the clearance rack! I guess by then I have gotten used to seeing them everywhere!
Enjoy those cute boots!! :)
