The morning began like so many others. I was in a hurry. Only this morning I had less time than usual. I jumped into the shower, with a mere 5 minutes to wash up and 10 minutes to get dressed, do my hair and makeup. Miracle, right? Pretty much.
With no time to deliberate on the outfit, I grabbed the linen tank and white denim that I wore the day before and changed up the accessories.
- Cognac wedges for army green ones.
- Suede saddle bag for backpack purse.
- Bronze jewelry for the silver jewelry.
- A headband to keep my crazy baby hairs under control. WAIT! Seriously?? Yes, I wore that animal print, bow headband all day and I wore it proud. LOL!
Now I needed a vest...hmmm. I didn't have an army green vest...
However, I did have this jacket, which was passed down to me last year by a friend, purging her closet. In addition, I own 2 other army green jackets: one utility and one similar to this one. With only 5 minutes left on my timer, I made a quick decision to cut the sleeves off and fashion my own "vest". No harm no foul. Honestly, I've contemplated this for awhile. I guess it took the pressure of a timer to make go for it.
At one minute left on the timer, I'm fully dressed, my hair is pulled back and outfitted with a bow, my green blazer is now a vest but I've no make up on. One minute. I settled for mascara and lip gloss. What can you do? There was no point in applying later either. Sometimes you just have to be comfortable in the skin you're in - flaws and all!

I am so excited to be linking up with Jennie and the Fabulous Friday! Her fun and classy style makes me look forward to each post. Keep it up Jennie!
Hey y'all, I'm Jennie and I am a 47 year old frugal fashionista! I am mom to two wonderful (and handsome!) sons and one very spoiled Pomeranian. After spending most of my life in black and boring clothes, I now enjoy trying new trends, am a confessed shoeaholic, believe life is too short for boring hair, and never met a polka dot I didn't like. I am also an avid photographer, reader of Jane Austen, Paleo/Primal enthusiast, and lover of DIY. You can follow me here:
I loved the fun color of the top and earrings, paired with the neutral white in the jeans; beiges in the purse and shoes. The mules with the bow on top. Please! So cute.
