Fauxionable Outfit - Embroidered Coat Accessories & detail

Close up shot of accessories

Since I’ve been making an effort to blog about  my outfits, I have been trying to be more creative and wearing everything in my wardrobe instead of sticking with the tried and true. The navy shirt is an example. I can’t remember the last time I wore it prior to today and I’m leaning of sending it to the donation pile since it isn’t a flattering fit. What do you think?

Shopping Haul from Uganda

So I just returned back to “civilization” bout 2 weeks ago. I had been living and working in Uganda for 16 weeks for a fellowship. I was really good with curbing my shopping temptations 99% of the time until it came time to leave. Yes, time to buy souvenirs and guess what? I think I ended up spending more money on myself than on getting souvenirs. Hah! Anyway, enough rambling. Let the pics do the talking!
