This week I decided to buy a pair of black flats to wear to work. Unfortunately, when I got to the store, after having tried on all the black flats I could find, I came to the conclusion that black flats look like house slippers on me, and therefore I wouldn’t buy any. I don’t know.. I kept trying on different pairs, but they all looked weird, like it was a pair of glorified flip-flops or something. I just, couldn’t. But then I remembed a pair of black heels that I own and wear all the time, they have a thicker heel and aren’t so high, but they look nice and aren’t so attention calling that I can’t wear them on the bus. So I decided to buy another pair similar because I know that I will get a lot of wear out of them.
When I got to the store, they were having their winter sale, so I ended up buying three pairs because I would get a 50% discount, all three pairs above were 290 reais total, less than 100 reais each, totally worth it! I bought a pair of short boots to wear on super cold days ( I tried on a million pair of long boots, but I think they just don’t look good on chubby people unless you wear leggings, but I am not wearing leggings to work. A friend of mine pointed out that I could wear a long shirt over the leggings, but that would just look weird, especially since when you wear boots you are wearing a coat, so just, no.) I also bought a pait of blue flats, they are a varnish material ( whatever that means) and have pointy toes, so they look great to wear out when I have a lot of walking to do, or to wear at home since I cannot wear heels at home because I live in an apartment!
Please don’t mind my dirty mirror and the unorganized room in the picture above, haha. I believe in looking your best everywhere you go or everywhere you are. I hate not being all prettied up, even if I am at home. I like looking and feeling beautiful, even on weekends! Today I had lunch at the mall with my husband and daddy, so I tried to choose something practical and warm! I ended up wearing jeans, blue flats, red suit top from Zara and a blue scarf. Red, White, and Blue for the 4th of July- a day late! hahahahha
As I mentioned in my last post, I have been working on organizing my wardrobe and building a better wardrobe. I also mentioned that I had a lot of black clothes, the picture above proves it hehehhee. I love black, it’s slimming, it looks great with skin, it doesn’t get dirty- it’s perfect! I also love white…buuuuuut, white gets dirty easily so it’s not always a practical go-to-piece.
And just in case anyone is wondering, that is the most part of my wardrobe, the rest are dresses that are hanging up on a longer space. I need to take more updated pictures of my “walk in closet” that isn’t finished and since I am moving, will never be finished lol. I am NOT fixing up my house if I am going to move 😀
Well, anyhow. That was my look for today in my never ended quest to look nice. Or, according to my sister Rachel, “How not to be a Frumpy Wife” hehehe. Hope you all have a good Sunday!
