Stay-At-Home Mom Style: Closet Amnesia

Everything on my top half today is new. I spent the rest of August's budget on this tee, vest and necklace, and since I got them in the mail last week I've worn them almost non-stop. 

The funny thing about getting new clothes is, I suffer a bit of "closet amnesia" for about a week where I forget everything else in my wardrobe and ONLY want to wear the newest item(s). Is it just me? 

On another note, I've been hunting for a military vest off and on for about a year now. I finally found this one on JC Penny's website, and loved everything about it except the rhinestones or whatever on one pocket. Not my style, so I dismissed it and kept looking. 

I then stumbled across it again a couple weeks ago, on clearance, and it occurred to me... I have a seam ripper, I could just take those puppies off and it'll be perfect! I'm a little ashamed I didn't think of that the first time, but I'm also glad I waited because I got it for a much better price. 

Vest: JC Penny (still on clearance!)
Shirt: JC Penny (also still on clearance)
Necklace: Caroline G. (got it free from an offer on facebook, they appear to be sold out now)
Jeans: Target
Flats: Wal-Mart

  1. I'm the exact same way. If I get something new that I really, really like...I wear it all the time...and everything else gets forgotten!!

  2. That vest is great! I like it more without the bedazzlement. And you got your necklace for free? Wow! This is a great outfit for a cooler day.

  3. Thanks! Me too, I don't know what was up with that haha. Well, the necklace was free except the cost of shipping, but when it's free otherwise I don't mind paying $6.95 for shipping. (Stupid shipping costs.)
