My intent in this blog is to write about 365 fashion forward outfits that won’t break the bank, will recycle clothing, be comfortable for the real working woman, and most importantly styles that are up to date with current trends.

I love everything about fashion! Clothes, shoes, makeup, purses, perfumes.. everything that all girly girls love. Only I do not have a unlimited budget and am living in the “real world” as most of the other women in this country. I work full time as a teacher, then tend to my motherly/wife duties on a daily basis.

I will reference magazines such as Elle, Vogue, People Style watch and will do my best to post helpful links. I look forward to this project/hobbie that I am undertaking and look forward to your feedback.
