I Pleat the Fifth

We go fishing at this little marina sometimes. Yes, I like to fish, doesnt everyone? It’s probably one of the only things that I do that requires me to get a little dirty, but I love it. It’s so relaxing. There’s nothing like sitting on the bank, your fishing rod in one hand, and a beer in the other. What a life!!
Skirt & Bracelets: Thrifted, Necklace: Kohl’s, Sweater: F21, Clutch: JC Penney, Shoes: Bakers, Belt: Old Navy (men)
I haven’t told you guys about any “Fabulous Finds” in about a week, even though I have plenty. I think Clearance is my middle name! Since the skirt was thrifted, that is an obvious Fab Find. So we’ll focus on the not-so-obvious. These shoes!!! I got them for $10!! Remember the red platforms I wore here? Well, I paid full price (well almost full price) for them. I rarely pay full price for anything. These were in the clearance section at Bakers. They were the only pair left, and luckily they were my size. I think they were so cheap because they had a little knick in the leather near the platform part of the shoe. Seriously??? Are you kidding me? Have you ever heard of a Sharpie? Yep, that’s all I did was color it in with a black Sharpie & I had another pair of fab heels to add to the collection!!
What do you like to do that’s not so girly?

Thanks for stopping by,

    glamorous and then some! i like how you added some surprises to a navy outfit- such as the pale floaty skirt…and pop of orangy red nails (i love that color of nail polish).
    very pretty!

    I love this outfit. I'm not sure if I could pull it off though.

    Fishing is one of my favorite hobbies! Even though I'm not so good at it. I like to rent one of those motor boats and fish all day!

    You have done it yet again! I love this look! I am short and curvy so I don't know if I could pull this off, but you are killing this look! I so feel you on the sharpie! A delivery company scratched our fridge, and with an added discount we were more than happy to "fill in" the little scratch with a sharpie! Nobody notices at all:) I gotta think about those "boy" things I like to do, hmmm!

    I love fishing as well! I grew up on an island for five years of my life, and was always close to the beach. I have always been connected to marine life. It's great.

    And that skirt was thrifted?! I need to go shopping with you!

    But hmm, would playing Call of Duty be not so girly? I usually end up as being the Top 3 all of the time, if you could imagine how much of my day is spent on playing it. I love that game. I think I have an addiction problem with it! Haha
