I do not consider myself to be a fashionista in any sense of the word. I actually used to envy people who posted regular #ootd pictures (Mom, that stands for “outfit of the day.”)
Outfit of the day? Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Shoot, if I have a cute outfit, I hesitate to post it on social media because God knows I’ll wear it to as many different events in one week as possible.
But lately, I’ve been hitting the jackpot at JC Penney (FYI this is NOT a sponsored post – just a sister tryna help another sister out.)
Honestly, I used to think JC Penney was a department store for stale-smelling grandma’s, but my opinion has totally changed.
Maybe this has come with age (does that make me a stale-smelling grandma?) but I’ve learned the lesson of buying a few key pieces and then mixing and matching. As someone who struggles with fashion all together, I wanted to share some examples of how I look semi-presentable Monday – Friday on a budget.
Blazer: JCPenney, Worthington, cannot find a similar one their website, but I saw it in the store last week!! // Pants: JCPenney (exact) // Purple dress: JCPenney (exact)// Black dress: Target, Mossimo (oooold)
So there you have it! My trick for sometimes looking cute: mixing and matching the hell out of a few staple pieces. It also helps that I normally score killer deals at JCP. This makes me and my wallet extremely happy.
