One of my current favorite outfits is one I was able to put together after I bought this Free People top from Bloomingdales during their Black Friday sale:
As I'm sure you read in my latest set of reviews, the Yummy Dobby Whistle While You Work tunic is super comfortable, soft, warm and I love the color. I think it may be my favorite color to wear, because it works so well with my skin tone.
While the model paired her shirt with leggings, I prefer my dark Paige skinny jeans. They are comfortable and fit me well. They may actually fit me better than my Rag and Bone jeans which is surprising since I've found that usually Paige jeans are for taller people. The ones in the image above are not exactly the same as what I have, but I can't find my exact pair online. :( I bought mine from Nordstrom Rack.
I also can't find my boots online anywhere, but I think that is more understandable since my dad bought them for me from some random cheap store in the Atlanta area that I would never be able to find again if my life depended on it. The boots above are very similar and currently found on ebay. (Can anyone explain to me why heeled boots are out of style now?! It makes me sad.)
When I put all of the pieces of my outfit together, I feel cute, comfortable, and casual. I find myself wearing the outfit while lounging around the house, going shopping at the mall, or even going to a family style restaurant for dinner. I love that people compliment the combination, but my outfit, on the whole, doesn't stick out too much screaming "look at me!" I'd never wear it if that were the case! :)
In order to keep my outfit looking it's best though, I use Fels Naptha laundry soap. I've found that some laundry detergent can irritate my skin, but this soap works well making laundry a much cheaper task and preventing weird smells (read: lavendar, citrus, etc…) from forming on my clothing. Plus, it gets rid of stains, because why would I use it if it didn't?
Here's the recipe Justin and I use for making our laundry detergent with Fels Naptha. It works quite well and takes minutes to put together. Plus, the savings are tremendous!
If you would like to try the Fels-Naptha bar of laundry soap, leave a comment below sharing one of your favorite home remedies for cleaning any area of your house (not just laundry). I have one coupon to give away, and I'll choose a winner next Friday, December 13.
Good luck! :)
*I was given a coupon from Purex to try the Fels Naptha bar and give away, but all opinions in this post are my own. My husband and I were using Fels Naptha soap before I was provided with this opportunity. :)
