my week of red, white, and blue outfits

As you've probably definitely been able to tell, my life is revolving around the Olympics now. Because of my excitement, I challenged myself to a week's worth of AMERICA outfits!

This is difficult for two reasons: I wasn't sure how much red, white, and blue I truly had, but more importantly: I never really get dressed these days. [No one is in the building when I am, so who do I have to impress?! A whole lot of computer screens? No thanks.]

I did it, though! Well, 6 days worth. Sunday was spent in the ocean, so... my 'Merica suit was on, and that's about it.

I apologize in advance for the awful quality of the pics. I need a fancydancy camera for posts like these, but homegirl is poor.

White lace tank from Ross [$4], red shorts from Forever21 [I think $10 last year?], sock bun with blue ribbon, white sandals. 

My "trashy 'Merica shirt" from Forever21 [$10], ripped jeans from Charlotte Russe [$20], white Keds sneaks that you can't see. 

Blue racerback-lace tank [wish I had taken a picture of the back! from Forever 21 clearance- $6], white jeans from Wet Seal [$15], red and cork heels from Rue21 clearance [$4], $1 red earrings from some cheapo store in the mall, and curly hair! My friends were in town from NoVA, so it was obviously a special occasion.


[I can't believe I just posted a picture of my feet. GROSS.]
Simple and comfortable day- Blue dress from Forever 21 [$8], red polka dot flats from Wet Seal [$1] and an old white necklace.

I had an event at Ocean Breeze Waterpark, so I went with a pretty see-through linen shirt from Old Navy clearance [$10], jean skirt from Forever21 [$10], and red, white and blue bathing suit top from Wal-Mart [$12]. 

Chambray tank from Kohl's I think [~$15], red shorts from Forever21 [$10], white sandals from [$8]. 

They're not the most extravagant or full-of-effort outfits, but I'm not mad about them! Plus, for EVERYTHING I wore, it was a total of less than $150! Not bad for a week's worth of getting dressed, eh?

I should challenge myself to themed fashion weeks more often. It actually makes picking out clothes easier and helps me feel like less of a slob.
