I am so stinkin' excited to be hosting Diaries of a Bargainista with Alisa and Alison. These two ladies have an amazing sense of style and I am honored they asked me to co-host. Thanks girls!

Que the music and pop the bubbly, let's get this linky par-tayyy started! 

Here are the rules:

1. Follow Me and Alisa 
2. Like Alison from Get Your Pretty On via Facebook
3. Link up ANY outfit post {please link directly to your post, not homepage}
4. Link back to our blogs or use the button below
5. Last, but not least, go have some fun and make lots of friends :)

And now for a WIWW post by yours truly. Wait a second...let me be completely honest for one moment. I thought I'd give the saying "yours truly" a test run and it would sound good, but I actually decided that it is completely not me. Let's start over.
And now for a WIWW post by me, a Pinterest copying, bargain hunting, normal chick just trying to be stylish. Ahhh, now that sounds more like it. Pressing on.
I know y'all have seen this outfit that I just NOW realized was pinned by Lindsey over at The Pleated Poppy!
I link up with her every Wednesday for her WIWW series and today I will be copying her outfit. Why? Well because it is adorable, of course! 
Since we are being 100% honest here, let me tell you that I might, or might not, have pinned this outfit between 4-8 times. Overkill, I know, but obviously I reallyyyy like it. I remember making a "note" on my phone titled: Clothes I Want. Let's just say the list is getting longer than it is shorter. Anyways, I was on the hunt for items to make up this outfit and I walked away with a win, a jackpot if you will. 
Remember when I had a weekend extravaganza of shopping? And I purchased a jean shirt and black pants? Click {here} if you need a little refresher. Well here is that little ensemble in action, literally. (Read: my sweet husband is really getting creative with this picture taking stuff! He is "posing" me and letting me know when I don't look natural. What a sweetheart.)

Now where did I find the pieces to this little outy-outfit (I can say that, right?!)..
- Top: Forever 21
- Black jeans: Banana Republic (Read: They are so. freaking. comfortable.)
- Boots: Nordstrom
- Scarf: Hand me down from my Momma...she get it from her momma, whoop-tee-woo!

Now, if you aren't feeling these super comfy jeans - seriously, they are like black jeggings - you can always wear these:
Yah, I sometimes wear my Nike running tights with this outfit. Got a problem with it? That's what I thought. I can see you right now going and changing those jeans for your yoga tights, or non-running-running tights as I like to call the ones I am wearing in the picture above. If you wear running tights as a fashionable item more than you wear them to actually run, that still makes you a runner, right?
Before I let you go I MUST tell you about this fantabulous GIVAWAY that I am participating in starting TOMORROW! Rev your fingers and get your clickers ready because we are giving away a lot, A LOT, of super-duper-fantastic items! Get ready for the 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY. If that doesn't make your heart race, you must be...nevermind. 

tucker up 
Happy Wednesday!

  1. I have a denim top and black pants that I wear too...oh pinterest has turned us all into copycats! :D
    I have tried the workout pants/ leggings instead of pants, but I just don't feel like they give COVERAGE to my thighs!
