Passion for Fashion: Chambray & Pleats

I’ve shared several times about my recent style adventure (from the big closet clean-out to my learning about which styles work for me). Still I’ve been hesitant to showcase fashion pictures of myself here on the blog. Southern Belle Simple is definitely not a fashion blog, but I do have a passion for fashion so I’m jumping in with today’s post.

My biggest complaint about fashion blogs is that the style they illustrate often seems unattainable, but I believe it’s possible to feel great in your clothes, even on a budget. My mission for SBS is to show that I’m just a normal girl like anyone else and that everything I do, you can do, too! (if you want to, I mean).

The look on the left inspired me to put together my own version (above right). Everything I’m wearing was either thrifted, gifted or purchased off a clearance rack, which allows me to experiment with trends without spending a lot of money.

So that’s my first fashion post. I’m linking up with the pleated poppy for her “What I Wore Wednesday” if you want to hop over and see the styles of other folks. Happy Wednesday friend!

{Skirt – Belk; shirt – Levi’s/thrifted; belt – Target; purse – Jessica Simpson/TJ Maxx; shoes – thrifted; bracelet – souvenir from my mom’s trip to Charleston}
