Diggin' Deep Animal Style

{have you done your part to stop SOPA? do your part now!}

On to another week of diggin' to the depths of my closet! I have to admit, getting ready in the morning seems to take a little bit longer and a little more effort. I am still tempted to go to my "easy" outfits. And, let's be honest, I wore my denim shirt this week. It's certainly easy and it's not a piece that's seen the depths of my closet. {Check out previous WIWW to see it practically every single week!} I did at least pair it up with some new {old} items, so that counts, right?



shirt: walmart
skirt: loft (dd item)
belt: express
shoes: clarks via dillards (dd item)

I'll tell you up front, even as I put this outfit together, I knew there was no way I was going to get rid of any of these pieces. Loft is my favorite store and I will take some major holes and a falling apart item before I'll part with it! And with the shoes, I got this for Christmas either last year or the year before and just love them. The problem is that I got in the habit of wearing flats during travel season and I haven't really transitioned back yet. So, everything about this outfit is still a keeper in my book. I felt very put together in it and will definitely reach for these D.D. items more often!

skirt: loft
tights: ??
shoes: gianni bini via dillards

I actually planned on wearing this shirt with a bright colored skirt for a more fun look today, but it was just a no go. I ended up throwing this together last minute and... I think I'm in love. For real. I love the look of dark tights into dark shoes. {you can make fun of me and call them panty hose if you want. tomato/tohmahto. I'm not really a fan of the sheer panty hose, but give me some big thick tights and I could wear them every day!} It's hard to put my finger on exactly what it was, but I just felt very chic and put together in this outfit. You are sure to see more of it in the coming days!

So there's my outfits for this week! Did anyone else take the challenge and pull out some items from your closet that haven't seen the light of day in a while? And, are they tights or panty hose to you? :)

I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday!



  1. I'm in love with the second outfit too. Awesome!

  2. I dug deep today! However, now I remember exactly why this cardigan was in the back of my closet - It just doesn't look good on me... I love your second outfit!
