I rarely do OOTD posts because my daily wardrobe is pretty boring. Today Mai and I went into Waikiki (something which most locals don't do much) so I decided to dress up juuuust a little bit from my normal jeans and t-shirts. We actually went to see the recently opened Teddy Bear Museum and Sephora Waikiki. The Teddy Bear Museum was really cute and much better than I thought it would be. Maybe I'll do a separate post another time.
I actually got these main pieces to this OOTD only a day or two ago. They were from Macy's Jr.'s department on clearance so I got some bargains. The jeans are actually jean leggings. I couldn't decide between the small and the medium since the small was just a bit tight but with the lycra, it would stretch out throughout the day. The medium had just a little bit more "give" to it but was longer and a bit looser in the waist. I ended up buying the medium and washing and throwing it into the dryer on high heat and it shrunk to just right. I got these jeans leggings on clearance for $14.99 and by using my Macy's card, got an additional 10% off. The top was also from Macy's Jr. dept. on clearance. I did modify it a bit because it actually had a collar to it but it was a bit big, bulky and pointy. I folded the collar in and sewed it down and I like the look of it much better. It came with the matching belt and was only $9.99 plus the 10% discount. I am wearing a lace top lycra cami underneath since it is cut just a tad bit too low for my liking and that was from Nordstrom rack. I can't remember the exact price but it was somewhere around $10.00.
The boots were the most expensive part of this outfit. They are of a gray suede-like fabric. The heel is really quite low, which I like. It was quite comfortable except we did a LOT of walking so my toes and balls of my feet were starting to scream, even with the gel cushion for ball of foot that I inserted. (See the bit of blue in the boot.) I actually brought a pair of sandals just in case and it's a good thing that I did. The boots were purchased from The Slipper House and were $29.99. They are actually a girls' boot in a size 4. The sales clerk said that there was no way I would fit a girls' size but depending on the style of the shoe/sandal, I can.
Although it's not pictured, my purse was a pewter-colored bag with 4 large rosettes going across the top of it.
I hope that you're all having a lovely weekend!
