Fill in the Blank Friday... Fashion

I recently found a new blog that I LOVE.  Over there, it's Fill in the Blank Friday.  And, the topic is Fashion.  You know what a fashionista I am, so... I'm in!

1. One fashion trend I really regret is wide leg jeans (circa Limited TOO 1996).  WHY on heaven's earth would I ever WANT to have wide legs?!?!  Also, graphic and baby-doll tees.  Puke!

2. The one thing that always completes any outfit is pearl studs. I have a lot of other nice earrings, and I like them alright, but I ALWAYS feel better in simple, classic pearls. (Handbands come in at a close 2nd here!)

3. I would describe my personal style as casual classic.  I like jeans, solid black/white/camel, and stripes A LOT.  I can't pull off pencil skirts and tucked in blouses.  And, TRUST ME, I really can't do "sexy."  (I've actually been searching all of Roanoke for an appropriate bachelorette dress for this weekend... And, I've got nothing.  I look like a pre-matured eight-year old at a Britney Spears concert in EVERYTHING I've tried on!  Solid black dress... here I come!)

4. My fashion muse is Reese Witherspoon... but you already knew that.

5. If I could own one designer piece of clothing it would be I'm really bad at "designers."  BUT... I would like a pair of real Tory Burch shoes.  :)  Also, I wish I had a good pair of designer jeans - they really do make SUCH a difference - of course Jeff, TOTALLY, does not understand this!

6. I would love to raid the wardrobe of some of my students. Not in a creepy or "Juniors Department" kind-of way.... Some of them just have REALLY cute clothes!!  I used to ask girls all the time where they got their clothes, but I'm pretty sure it is uncool to dress like the teacher, so I stopped for fear of hurting their reputations.

7. Today I am wearing Seven jeans (these are hand-me-downs from my trendy sister... they are too short for me so I usually cuff them, but - thanks to BFL - I'm feeling skinnier today, and less hips/thighs to cover with fabric = more length*), a new white tank top from Target, and one of those tissue-tee cardigan thingies that doesn't button and is slightly longer in the front with red and white stripes; plus, of course, flip flops, pearls, and a tortoise shell headband.

*Yes, there is a good chance that it just looks like I'm wearing high waters, but I'm ok with it.  (Look for a BFL update tomorrow after I weigh in, NO, I haven't quit yet!)
Want to play along?!?  Just copy & paste these into your own blog entry.  (Or just answer in the comments section here.) Then, head over to the little things we do to add your linky!

Happy Friday!


  1. our answers for 2, 3, and 4 are practically the same :)

    stopping over from lauren's...

  2. I love your style. It's so similar to mine. And I love those Tory Birch flats. So cute!

  3. I love this!!! And I had TOTALLY forgotten about the wide leg jeans of yester-year...what a HORRIBLE idea!!!

  4. is now the time to make an incentive bet with the hub?? if you meet your goal, not only do you feel GREAT and look AMAZING but you also get a new pair of designer jeans or some of those super cute flats (that I would also love, by the way). couldn't hurt to ask. :)
