I always tell the girls, never take it seriously, if ya never take it seriously, ya never get hurt, ya never get hurt, ya always have fun, and if you ever get lonely, just go to the record* store and visit your friends.
-Penny Lane [Almost Famous]

I’m sure when Penny Lane , said record* store, she probably meant [Retail] store.

Penny was very wise.

Hi I'm Penny Lane. I love laughing, smiling, and I'm no groupie! [except maybe to fashion.]

As you guys know by now ; I’ve been revamping my closet.
Oh. Yes! ..If you’re just tuning in .. [hold onto your butts]
I’m re-vamping my closet & style.
See previous posts [ “How to rock cool clothes already in your closet”
& “How to obtain a Minimalist closet” ]

It’s Monday. So I feel like I need an extra boost.
Ok. I need a revolution.
I woke up to fall breezes and puppy kisses.

Hi Mommy! We'll be over here sleeping , while you do important work stuff.

Hi Mommy! We’ll be over here sleeping , while you do important work stuff.

So yes. I’d love to just go back to bed.

About 2 cups of coffee in, “I was like what do I wear today?
“Ooo that new chocolate creamer …I got from Whole Foods is awesome, Kelli stay on track.. What do I wear today?”

Let’s think outside the box.
My outfit is inspired by a TV show or a Movie?
[cuz why not?!]
Monday outfit is brought to you by my spirited closet , practical cheap finds, and the love child of “Almost Famous” & ” That 70’s Show”.

  1. High-waisted Flare Jeans

I didn’t think I’d want high-waist jeans. I didn’t want to look like a mom from the 80’s.
But these are cute, comfortable (soft!) & awesomely priced. That’s the best part.
You can find good deals at outlets. You can find great deals on the clearance rack at Outlets.
I got these at the gap factory outlet. They were on SALE + additional 60% off= $12 jeans.
I just wish I had a skinny brown belt.

All you need is Flare. All you need is Flare. All you need is Flare , Flare. Flare Jeans are all you need.

All you need is Flare. All you need is Flare. All you need is Flare , Flare.
Flare Jeans are all you need.

2.  Striped 3/4 Shirt

If we learned anything from Foreman on “That 70’s show”, a striped shirt is always a good idea.
I’m a big fan of blue, so I liked the blue-yellow combo. Soft, fitted , Stretchy. Versatile top can be worn with quite a bit. Would look cute with some corduroy leggings & boots. What’s better is the price. American Eagle Outfitters – Goodwill = $1.25 . That’s right. $1.25. You can find new-gently worn merchandise at Goodwill. After all [I am in the middle of purging my closet] whatever I don’t sale, I’ll be donating to Goodwill.

Man. All I'm seeing is Stripes. Stripes , I tell you. Stripes.

Man. All I’m seeing is Stripes. Stripes , I tell you. Stripes.

3. Accessorize

Now if this was an official, “Penny Lane’ ” style outfit, it would require a fake fur & sunnies.
[But I chose to personalize my accessories.]

*Engagement & Wedding Ring [yes. I know. I’m cheesy . I lovvvve it. Pun intended]

*Silver Vintage-style picture locket
[gift from my husband. Yes. I still need to put a picture in the locket]

*Animal rescue bracelet [proceeds benefit ASPCA]

*Survival Bracelet [you never know when you need to defend yourself against a star-struck groupie, box of dozen donuts, or rush hour traffic]

*Fake Birkenstocks from my closet [probably about 10 years old]

My accessories! [In case you had any doubts.]

My accessories!
[In case you had any doubts.]

Accessories can really tie an outfit together.

Next time ,I’ll totally rock some flowers, in my hair.

I promise.[ok. Let’s be real. this is a very tame outfit]

hey, I’m proud to not just wear Yoga pants,

come on … at least the inspiration was there.

So happy [fall] is here!

Selfie for Fall! Because I'm that happy .. It's fall.

Selfie for Fall!
Because I’m that happy ..
It’s fall.

What are some of your fall fashion inspirations?

If you could dress in any time period, [what & why] ?
Is there a look that you love from a movie or TV show?

Ps. The pumpkin spice latte is back. [but I’ll bet you already knew that]

Quirky & flare jeans for days ,
Kelli
