DESERT DIVA

TODAY WE DROVE OUT TO THE OUTLETS TO GET MY DAUGHTER SOME CONVERSE FOR SCHOOL. SHE ADORES CHUCKS AND WILL NOT WEAR ANY OTHER SHOE TO SCHOOL! AT THE BEGINNING OF EVERY SCHOOL YEAR TEXAS HAS A TAX FREE DAY. YOU DON'T PAY TAX ON ANY CLOTHING, SHOES OR SCHOOL SUPPLIES UP TO $100. IN CONJUNCTION WITH THIS DAY, MOST RETAILERS HAVE GREAT SALES. BOTH MY DAUGHTER AND HUSBAND ENDED UP GETTING SOME CHUCKS AND OF COURSE, I PICKED UP SOME THINGS TOO!! I CAN'T WAIT TO SHOW YOU!! ;-)

 I WANTED TO BE COMFY BECAUSE OUTLETS REQUIRE A LOT OF WALKING. I FOUND THIS CUTE LIGHT WEIGHT JACKET/BLAZER ON EBAY AND IT REMINDED ME OF HOME (ARIZONA) SO I HAD TO HAVE IT! I PAIRED IT WITH SOME STIRRUP LEGGINGS AND A ZEBRA PRINT KAFTAN. I KNOW MY PRINTS ARE CLASHING AND BUSY BUT IT IS FUN!! THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING ME KNOW THAT I AM NOT MARRIED TO ONE LOOK, IN FACT, I CRAVE VERSATILITY AND I DRESS ACCORDING TO MY MOOD WHICH IS EVER CHANGING! I WEAR LEATHA IN THE SUMMA TIME AND SHORTS IN THE WINTER. LOL 
ANYWHO, I HOPE YOU LIKE IT!
WITH LOVE,
KIAH

i don't think it's clashing! right before reading your post, i actually thought that the jacket & blazer were attached! i like that you paired it that way too! it's "fun" like you said <3

gah! i need me to go to the outlets out here too! but the heat and the many tourists that go turns me off at times >_<

Kiah, I love that top! I see prints like that cropping back into current trends, and I really am loving how you've worn it! How awesome that you get a tax free day! I would go super crazy for that kind of deal!

Girl you look comfy! This reminded me of prints I used to see when we lived in New Mexico! I love your style. Don't you just love tax free weekends!?!?

Katie Mac said...

Such a cute comfy outfit perfect for shopping at the outlets. I can’t wait to see what you found!

Wida said...

Ooo, definitely loving the outfit you have on! Reminds me of when I used to live in Arizona!

Thank you for your sweet comments. I'm afraid I'm too painfully shy and clumsy to be a model! Plus too short!

ooooh Kiah! i leave it up to you to make a clashing outfit look chic. lool

Nique said...

You're working this look so well. I like the print and don't think it's too busy at all. "Dare to be different", that's my motto. You look great!

Yea, I went to the outlet mall here in Houston and racked up on my boys for school. My son is addicted to Jordans now (it was Vans, then Chucks, & now Jordans-lol). I really do enjoy when tax free weekend comes around. I saved a lot of $$$. And those outlet prices were dabomb.com. I got a lot of stuff myself (couldn't leave momma out- had to treat myself).

I love the details of the jacket and the mixing of prints! It requires boldness to pull off and you did it well!

I love that your daughter wants Chucks... I wore them all 4 years of high school myself... pink, red, black, and white! Of course, this was in the '80s....

Kerissa said...

I do like and the handbag is cute. I'm a huge fan of Chucks too for the kid. He's a big fan of Nike and Supra, lol.
