Dress With Purpose :: Be Inspired :: Push Yourself :: Mixing Textures

by DressWithPurpose

Happy Tuesday!


My Purpose :: Busy day today! Heading in early to my hubby’s office, then while he is in a few meetings I am off to scout a couple of thrift stores for some outfits for a client (at her request) as well as finding some fun jewelry, I am going to need this all for tonight and a birthday party for my friend and client Pam Farrel. After shopping it will be back to the hubby’s office to finish up a few projects and then heading out to the Birthday Party!

My Inspiration :: So the push for me today was mixing textures you normally wouldn’t put a taffeta full length skirt with a t-shirt and denim jacket but we are pushing it this week and I couldn’t resist adding a little rocker girl flare in the accessories! It’s definitely a fun outfit and will carry me through the day, as well as be an example to the ladies at the birthday party tonight that you don’t have to spend a fortune to still look and feel great!
