Frugal Fashionista: Christmas Tree Farm Style


Our annual picture at Mast General Store 2011, Boone, NC (old fashioned root beer ;))

What started as a simply fabulous Frugal Fashionista style day, where I worked the scarf, loved the sweater dress look, which paired over leggings, and then pulled together perfectly with my $1 thrift store belt, was quite mountain top trendy.

But suddenly, as the sun set, it all went array.

Temperatures dropped, and the wagon took us higher and higher up the mountain.

So I did Gander Mountain Proud, and I rocked my son’s $4 clearance hat. I added to my long sweater look a white ski jacket for a full ensemble.

Because often, fashion is all in the attitude.

If you think it works, everyone around you just might agree.

And if you can truly amuse your children with your wondrous fashion prowess, you’ve had a successful day, and given them a few good laughs.

Because truly, don’t you all want to follow in my footsteps of this ultimate Frugal Fashionista outfit?

Yes, just a small bedlam moment I thought I’d share. 🙂

Not to be tried at home!


  1. Love it! Looks like you all had a wonderful day and YOU were comfortable….


  2. Looks like a super fun day — and once it is time to get warm, all bets are off on fashion! Love that you took pics to share. The memories are way more important than the fashion. Precious.


  3. In my opinion, Being warm is much better than being in the trendiest fashion and freezing cold. I hate to be cold and get very grumpy when I am, so I would have put on the hat and jacket in a heartbeat!


  4. Best part of this post? “Not to be tried at home” Thanks for the great laugh!

    I remember the time I had to wear sock with sandals…because sandals was all I had and it got COLD! Then, all our pictures from the day happened to include feet. Not my finest moment. But I was warm, and that’s all that mattered!
