Obsessed with this cardigan! Love the subtle neutral striped colors which is easy to mix and match with any look. Also these Calvin Klein mules are surprisingly comfortable and under $100. I have worn them on repeat since I got them at Nordstrom last year. You can still find these at Overstock.com
Sweater weather and layering is in full force and I have been getting in the spirit. It is so hard to resist with all the amazing deals (and so has my shopping bag haha). I’ve also been finding a few reasonably priced items and wanted to share some of my recent buys. This cardigan is one I saw and as soon as I tried it on, I knew it was going to find a home in my closet! I love the colorblock shades and ballon sleeves that makes it so pretty. Just the perfect way to bring a little fun to any wardrobe and still stick to a Fall theme look. These come in two colors at Nordstrom Rack.
Obviously my mules are on repeat and I love the gold detailing on the back of the heel. Surprisingly my clutch purse was one of those lucky finds at Target. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find these online so it may warrant a trip to a Target store if you like them as much I do. I have linked a different color for you. They are just so cute that I have plans to wear these with my Uggs when it gets a tad bit colder in Dallas..haha. These jeans are a great fit and also under $100! I have a tiny waist and wider hips so it is always such a challenge finding jeans that fit but these are absolutely perfect and a big selling point for me. Some of these items are currently on sale so you can get great deals.
This skirt! I’m obsessed!!! There is something about tulle that’s so fun and playful…oh yes, and feminine too! I have had this skirt on repeat and I love how I can pair it with just about anything! If you have a tulle skirt, here are a few tips for styling:
Wear them with heels or even boots for a Fall look
Lacy tops and layers can bring in some pattern and add variation. I have worn them with a black lace top and also with a jacket for office look
Don’t be afraid to accessorize. I chose minimal pieces to not take away from the look. A few key pieces can make a difference.
Finally, make every look your own. There are no rules to fashion. It is all about how you wear each piece and confidence.
BLACK AND LACE
Lacy tops, jackets, and the color black can all be edgy, stylish, and transforming. Lacy tops can go with about anything but I especially love it with this tulle skirt.
For a more serious look, you can add a tweed jacket and still look classy. I have been really drawn to all things black lately whether it is wearing it as a solid color or mixing it with other colors. I find that black is such an effortless color so instead of wearing a neutral lighter color, I chose to wear this skirt with something black and the contrast is beautiful.
Just add a faux fur clutch purse to keep things light and playful. If you are looking for a simple holiday look or everyday wear, this is an easy and effortless one.
You can quickly transform this look from office wear with the jacket to a night out without the jacket. If a look is versatile in my book, then it is definitely a winner. I have linked a few pieces below.
Do you own a tulle skirt or dress? How do you wear it? Would love to hear!
There’s usually a little bit of a frenzy when approaching a change in season. It could be due to the current fashion trends or realizing the clothes you’ve kept in your wardrobe from last Fall is not too wearable any longer. Either way, there’s always this trend every season to do a little shopping and mix/match with your current clothes in your wardrobe. Today, I am sharing a few finds that are reasonably priced from a store I have never shopped at before; still in love with the top! Call it an accidental find, thanks to my little girl who actually pulled me into this store on one of our trips to get her fluffy scented unicorn squizamals at Claire’s. Please don’t even get me started on the squizamals and squishy trend toys among little girls! I will have to save that for another post.
Anyway, about this outfit which she picked for me and henceforth (don’t I sound so proper?), I have decided to take her along on all my shopping sprees!!!
Outfits Under $50
This outfit is such a great transitional wear into Fall! It is not too heavy and not too light either. This top and scarf are both under $10 from Forever21 and H&M, respectfully. My pants come in three colors and on sale at Free People. I just love the beautiful contrast of colors. Maybe it’s something about color harmony between primary and secondary colors that make this look fun and yet “Fall-ish”.
My lettuce edge mock neck top isn’t really a turtleneck so is not too heavy and can be worn in temperatures in the 60s degree Fahrenheit (F) or higher…just not in 80F degree weather! Now that will be a bit too hot. I love the scallops on the edges since it adds a feminine touch to the look. The belted wide-leg pants are super comfortable. I can’t gush enough how surprised I was when I put them on! I also really like the belted option because you can adjust how tight or loose you want the belt around your waist, giving you control. You can find these pants at any of these stores; FreePeople, Nordstrom Rack or Macys. I have also included in the “Shop My Favorites” link below, a less expensive option from Forever21 which is very similar to these pants and under $30! For the scarf, I opted for a light choice but I have a feeling this may change into more heavier layers later in the month once we start experiencing much cooler temperatures. I paired this look with one of my favorite Sam Edelman shoes from Nordstrom and Michael Kors cross body bag in nude.
Now isn’t this just the cutest outfit (minus my slightly out of control crazy hair)? I think I may have found a personal fashion stylist in my daughter. Have you guys shopped at Forever21? What do you guys think? Let me know in comments below.
