Just Kickin' It Clothes

My wardrobe is desperately in need of some updating. I haven't bought anything new or different in forever. Now that I'm working out and feeling good about myself, I'm ready to spend a little money on some new summer clothes. I do have a few nicer shirts and stuff. But, what kind of stuff do you wear just around the house? I have a ton of t-shirts with college logos on them, but I've never really bought other types of t-shirts. When it comes to my kids I can shop all day long, but I have the hardest time finding a good place to get clothes for me! So, what's the place to get some decent, inexpensive summer clothes?

I'd prefer that they don't look like teeny bopper clothes either. :)

What can I do next?

So What Happened?™

i do buy all of my nicer clothes at Kohl's, but they're just not comfy enough for every day play. I'm a SAHM, so I live in my yoga pants and sweatshirts in the winter.

I'll definitely check out Old Navy. I haven't had much luck there in the past, but I'll give it another shot. I do like their t-shirts and tanks. I love Marshall's and totally forgot about it! I'll be making a trip there as well :)

I love to go thrifting... but that's just me. I wear cute jeans and fitted vnecks or belted tunic type tops mostly, but am breaking out of the habit and pairing them with colorful cardigans and wedge sandals and such.

Kohls, JC Pennies, Marshalls, usually have pretty good stuff for decent prices.

Lately, I've been reading fashion remix blogs to help me get reenergized in the dressing world.. here are a few of my favorites:

I say trash your old bulky logo t-shirts and baggy sweat pants unless you are painting.

Any of the stores mentioned will carry simple fitted or shaped t-shirts and tanks. Layers can be good. Start simple. Accessorize and supplement with some trendier items. Get some jeans that are comfortable but look great. Buy some new shoes and look for simple dresses that compliment your figure by playing up your assets. I think the most important thing is to get clothes that fit well and flatter your form. There are tons of resources to find what looks best for your body type on line, in magazines or take along a friend with some style and the guts to tell you the truth.

Have fun and enjoy your reward! You deserve this!

I'm a tried and true Gap lover. Old Navy is good too, Target has some decent stuff, but my latest surprise is actually JC Penny. I recently went there looking for a swimsuit and they have some cute things! The clothes are reasonably priced and not too "young" looking. I honestly had written Penny's off as a yucky place, but upon further inspection it's not too bad! ;)

If you can, check out H&M or Target. H&M has some awesome stuff for pretty cheap. You can ALWAYS find stuff there, and they have all different sizes, not just 5 and 7! You really have to look around because they can have some funky stuff too, but keep looking! Target has some cute stuff too real cheap.

On sunny weekends and in the summer playing with my son I LIVE in leggings and tunics or "maxi" dresses. They are inexpensive so when my son gets me with a painted hand or I have to carry him after a spill in the mud, I don't worry about it, but a cute pair of shoes and jewelery and I'm "hip and cool" enough to meet a friend for drinks.

I like to find most of my stuff at Target (heck... milk, detergent and clothes in one spot can't be beat) or Old Navy.

I'm no fashion expert, but Old Navy usually has cheap stuff, and Forever 21 is amazing -- just stick to the more mature-looking clothing. It's definitely time to wear something more stylish than college logo t-shirts.
