What I Wore Wednesday Wk 20

I can't believe this is my 20th week!

I started this way back in the summer.  I took a short break at the end of 2010, but I'm back and ready to take on 2011.

Here are a few random thoughts about the last 20 weeks of my WIWW posts.

First of all, thanks for taking the time to stop by!  Each and every comment someone leaves makes me smile.  It's so encouraging!

Second, I buy a lot of my clothes at the Gap and Old Navy because I'm a cardholder and the perks are great.  I really like Banana Republic, too.  There's an outlet mall about 30 or 45 minutes from where I live, and the J Crew, Ann Taylor and Gap outlet have pretty good deals.  If I have time when I'm in Target, then I like to shop their clearance section.  I also like Nordstrom Rack for shoes and other random finds.  My dream store is Anthropologie.  Who doesn't love Anthro?  I only shop there several times a year for my birthday or Christmas.

Third, I buy all of my clothes on sale.  I'm a teacher married to a teacher so I don't have to tell you that we're not in the profession for the paycheck.  I'm a bargain shopper for practical purposes, but I think I'd still bargain shop even if I didn't have a budget.  Who doesn't love the thrill of a good deal?

Fourth, I don't claim to know anything about fashion at all.  In real life I feel like a pretty big nerd.  When I'm shopping I look at ladies in the store who are chic and have great style and I just copy whatever they are buying.  Seriously!

Fifth,  I keep coming back to WIWW because I love meeting new people, getting inspiration for new outfits and forcing myself to be more thoughtful about the clothes I choose to wear.

This is about the clothes not my random thoughts.  Enough rambling!
