PFC #16

My first PFC! Exciting!

It's hosted by 
Here's the challenge
Summer Wedding--Create an outfit for a summer wedding (the dress code is up to you). For bonus points (and this is what I'll be doing!) try to make your whole outfit, head to toe, come in under $100! (Or, exclude shoes and accessories to meet the $100 mark.)

For this challenge I chose a bright light weight dress and wedges.

Dress: Forever 21 - Purchased black friday for around $17 or less.. forgot the actual price, but def under $20.
Wedges: Payless Christian Siriano- $29.99 I think you can get this now for $19.99
Earrings: Forever 21- Probably $6 at most.

Total this outfit was about $52.99.. I think it definitely could have been cheaper than that too! Sorry for the blurry pictures! Hope you enjoy!

New goals

Unfortunately this is not an outfit post, oh how I wish it were... Since my last blog post I've been really wanting to put some good outfits together, and although I have put some outfits together and have gone about taking pictures of my outfits, they just didn't sit well with me... I feel that my wardrobe is pretty dated.. I feel like I haven't shopped for clothes in like 2 years! Sure I purchase a few pieces here and there, mostly sale items, but I haven't really shopped for clothes in a long time. I don't feel inspired with my current wardrobe. And of course I'd LOVE to be like "well enough with being bummed about your sad closet go shopping!" but the sad truth is I just don't have the money for it.

I think something else that kinda bums me out is I've been gaining some weight... I would have to thank my love for junk food and laziness for that.. sigh.. When I take outfit pictures and look at them I don't like the outcome..  But I am the only one to blame for that. I eat junk food probably 98% of the time... I hate vegetables.. and the only green I like to eat is candy (I LOVE green apple flavored candy!!!!!), and anything in a green potato chip bag(sour cream and onion chips LOVE).. ok enough with my fatty ways.. I also am a pretty inactive person. My gym membership expired a year ago and I have yet to renew my membership or find a new gym... My struggle with gym finding is that it's so expensive and the one that I want to go to that's in my price range is just so far.

But all in all I gotta work with what I have. I really like blogging. I like the process of it, and I love that it has really motivated me to try and put together outfits for my day to day life, whether or not I have time to take pictures of them. This blog is really helping me with my goal. So with that, I have made 2 more goals for myself.  That I'm hoping this blog will kinda force me to stay on track..

1. Try really hard to work with the items in my closet. Pull out clothes that I bought but never wear.

2. Get healthy. Eat better, and be more active!

Ok.. enough with this long post about nothing.. promise next post will be fashion related..

Plain Jenn

I have been gone for a little bit because I've been battling strep throat for the past couple of weeks. I'm getting much better though. On top of being sick, I've been crazy at work and school. But hopefully I'll be able to get on with blogging. This is pretty much my every day outfit.

Denim shorts- because of the super hot weather.
A plain top- in this case a plain cami, also been known to wear tees and tanks
Flip flops- my go to shoe.. cause it's so easy

Yep pretty plain and simple. Definitely Plain Jane.. or Plain Jenn..
Shorts: Hollister    Cami: Forever 21
Belt: Forever 21
 My beloved flip flops. I don't know if it's a California thing... but I live in my flip flops, and by living in them I mean I LIVE in them.. Like I have flip flop tan lines.. it's pretty sad.. You can also tell by this pic that they've definitely been worn. I've gone through many many flip flops in my life, and these are my favorite flip flops. These are by Reef and they are about the most comfortable flip flops ever. I've gone through about 3 pairs of these already.. I prefer these over those rubber ones that they sell at Old Navy because I don't slip in these when I'm walking on wet floors.
Flip Flops: Reef

Sorry for the sad boring post.. but I figure posting something is better than nothing? What is your every day lazy attire like?
