I am seriously considering officially titling one of my weekly fashion posts 'What I Wore Shopping', because on average, I only wear 'real' clothes twice a week: one day to go shopping, and the other day to go to church. The rest of the week I spend half the day in work out clothes, then the second half in my son's or husbands old clothes to work out in the garden during the warm months, or yoga pants and a sweatshirt in the winter. I should really take a selfie of me in my garden clothes…you probably wouldn't even recognize me covered in dirt, a head scarf, and men's clothing. Maybe I will. That would be quite an entertaining post.
In the meantime, I have a bunch of shameless selfies to share with you of what I wear on those days when I'm just running errands. Since I am dressed grungy most of the week, I do like to take the time to pretty myself up when I do leave the house, even if it's just to the grocery store!
The outfit I'm wearing below is a denim tunic with a striped tank underneath (both from Old Navy) and dark denim jeans. I wore a pretty shell type necklace to dress it up a bit more.

And here is my husband showing his enthusiasm at having his picture taken during lunch. He's just kidding. He doesn't own a cell phone and says he never will, but he lovingly pays for mine, because he knows I love my IPhone.
This outfit is actually very simple: a white tee shirt with light denim. But it was the shoes and accessories that seemed to catch every one's attention. I wore a military jacket I received from Stitch Fix, and a pretty necklace from Express. What I also did to even make the outfit even more appealing, was add a stripe gauze scarf and a cute boho handbag from Francesca's (you can see the bag HERE in another post). Unfortunately, since I grabbed these two items as I was headed out the door, I never got a picture of me in the completed ensemble. The scarf was actually an afterthought because I was worried I would get too cold without one, and I always forget to take a picture of my handbag…so that's normal for me.

Here's a picture showing off my new highlights. I really love how fresh new highlights make you look.
So what about you? What do you wear shopping? Do you put much thought into your attire when your just headed out of the house to run a few errands, or do you just wear whatever you had on in your home? I'd love to hear from you!
Have a great day! Amy
