Grocery Store Chic

So I actually do not wear a ball gown to the grocery store.  Lately, I've been getting the question of do I "dress up" to go to the grocery store?  Exception: If I am going after the gym I am in gym clothes.  Today, I had to run into Target for some groceries and garment racks.  (My closet is a monster right now and I have to get it under control).  This is what I wore.  Did it take a little thought?  Yes.  Did it take me more than 10 minutes to put together? No.  I made a personal decision to make an effort in my appearance every time I hit the door for a few reasons.  One, you never know who you are going to meet.  It could be a potential job, a client, or an ex-boyfriend (because you have to make them feel like they lost the best thing they ever had, just sayin).  It's like your mom's clean underwear/ambulance theory.  Anything could happen, so why not be prepared.  Two, I hate feeling sloppy I swear it ruins my entire day.  I am a strong component for the look good/feel good theory.  Finally, people are willing to be nicer to you when it comes to customer service.  Sad, but true.  When people connect with you, because they like something you have on they are so much more pleasant.  Yesterday, my hunny bunny and I got a huge discount on our lunch just because the cashier liked my dress.  It is especially handy when dealing with retail, doing returns, and etc.  



Speaking of my monster of a closet,  I am having a sale on my online shop.  Dresses $30, Bottoms/Skirts $20, and Tops $10.  I have bought entirely too much stuff, my closet is over flowing.  As pieces sell, I will be adding more.  You can stop by here. Oh and check out the Clements Ribeiro Collection at Evans, it's on super sale and I loved the pieces that I got.  

Outfit Logistics:  Top:  Clements Ribeiro for Evans $35, Denim: Ashley Stewart $18, Shoes - ShoeDazzle $40, Clutch - H&M $24, Lip Color - MAC Sail La Vie $14, Sunglasses - GW Boutique (or Goodwill gifted from a co-worker)

  3. I like your reasons for putting effort into your outfits.

    Most days I'm the most polished person in my class and I find that professors treat me better (it might also have to do with the fact that I participate heavily in class discussions). For better or worse, appearance matters.

    Cute top, BTW.

  4. You are so right. Look good feel good! Nice outfit, love the touch of yellow. Are Shoe Dazzle shoes comfortable and what about the quality?

    1. You have to be very selective at Shoe Dazzle as far as cheapness is concerned. I often go for a patent leather which seems to be the least looking cheap shoe. I have bought a regular leather looking pair that were cute as well. Stay away from the faux suede.

  5. Thumbs up for going on heels to the grocery store. And yes, I've seen the super sale of CR collection at Evans. Just ordered the coat and some pants. Can't wait to see how they fit.
