Weekly Steals & Deals: 40% Off All J. Crew Swim Style

Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

I never ever pass up a good sale on swimsuits (especially classic modest styles)!  Even if I don’t wear them now I stock up and save them for next time (but that rarely happens down here in FL).  A lot of times what I do is wear a printed one piece under an off the shoulder tee for a beachy look or a bikini top under a strapless maxi for added support.  And if the weather permits I’m ready for a stroll on the beach.  Below are some classic nautical styles from J CREW that are 40% off now through Wednesday with free shipping and returns.  TONS of cute options that will never go out of style.  Check out my favorites below.

My One of a Kind Shopping Style

March 5, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

The Diet Dr Pepper One Of A Kind Style Sweepstakes is on and to help celebrate the kickoff this time I decided to highlight my personal way of shopping.  My love for shopping is like an art form and the way I shop has really defined my one of a kind style. I shop clearance aisles first and when I spot something I like it has to meet a certain criteria – like the ability to be worn at least two different ways and be easily worn for day or night (I have a tendency to “build” outfits piece by piece).  Also, while the new arrivals that are placed right smack in the front of the store may be the easiest choice, it can also leave you looking like everyone else.  Sure, It can be challenging and at times frustrating but it’s what sets my outfits apart from others. Another habit of mine is to mix and match high-end pieces with affordable finds that will get me the most wear. For the most part when I see something on the rack I can envision what I’ll be wearing it with before I even walk out the door…and those are the pieces I wear to death and the pieces that make my style one of a kind.

Just last weekend I went shopping for some spring shoes and I knew I wanted booties.  At first I was looking for a black and brown pair, but then I saw this tan suede pair with a gold platform and they were only $20!  Right away I knew that they’d be perfect to dress up or down so I snagged them right away.  The first outfit I wore them with a pair of mint green skinny jeans, a simple white tee, a boyfriend blazer  and a polka dot scarf.  For my second outfit  I wore the booties with my go-to skirt and a chambray top.  I love the way it gives the black skirt a more laid back look without taking away the dressy part. This particular outfit was under $100 and I’ve worn each piece a ton of different ways.

 

Not bad for a pair of booties that cost only $20!  Check out some of my other day to night looks below.

Target Style Shoppable Video

March 4, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: It’s impossible to buy only one thing at Target!  I know I’m not the only one who walks into a Target to buy something only to walk out with a dozen other items!   So while watching Target’s shoppable spring time video (see below) it was no surprise that I already owned at least four different pieces from their new spring line.  It’s hard to really pick a favorite because all the pieces are beautiful but what really popped out in this video where the prints.

Everything, including the mens wear, had a retro feel that made it all the more special and expensive looking!  All of the hottest items now available at Target’s new spring line are included in the video not to mention available to purchase without even pausing the video.  There’s been a ton of times where I see a commercial or video and see something that I like and have to search high and low to find out where to purchase it and this video not only provides you the info and links but it allows you to shop by trends and outfits – love that!  Check out the video and some of my favorite pieces below and what to wear them with.

The colors on this Merona floral jacket make it super easy to wear with bold bright colored skinny jeans, tops and accessories.   Tip:  Try this floral blazer with a oxford and pencil skirt for a office friendly spring look.

Oxford Floral Blazer – $34.99 | Prabal Gurung For Target Tank – $19.99 | Mossimo Colored Skinny Jeans – $27.99 | Chiffon Yellow Crossbody – $26.99 | Mossimo Pemella Demi Wedge – $32.99

I just bought this polka dot shirt (which is so soft and fits amazingly) just the other day and I think it’s going to make its way into a lot of my outfits.  I paired it here with a striped pull over and a tweed skirt for an even bolder pop of color that can be taken apart and worn a ton of different ways.  Tip: Try some opaque tights and pumps for days that are still a bit too chilly for bare legs.

Merona Striped Raglan Pullover – $24.99 | Merona Favorite Lawn Shirt – $22.99 | Mossimo Tweed Skirt – $22.99 | Mossimo Vinta Ankle Strap Heels – $29.99 |  Chiffon Yellow Crossbody – $26.99

This floral mossimo blouse is easily one of the prettiest floral prints I have ever seen on a blouse.  It’s got the perfect blend of color mixed in with neutral tones.  It screams spring and can be worn with everything from shorts, jeans or layered underneath your work pieces.  For this look I paired it with bright lace shorts and flats – an effortless look you can wear to a spring or summer picnic. Tip: Unbutton this top and tie it over a strapless dress for a sexy look.

Merona Floral Shirt – $22.99 | Mossimo Lace Shorts – $15 | Prabal Gurung for Target Pointy Toe Flats – $29.99 | Chiffon Yellow Crossbody – $26.99

It’s Time for Springtime.  Target’s got the floral’s, stripes and polka dots for all your colorful spring outfits at affordable prices!

Love the mix of Tori Spelling’s feminine top with the studded booties and shorts. I found three similar tops and loved them all so I just went ahead and put up all three.  As for the glasses,  I think she looks adorable but I just wasn’t feeling the color red with the outfit so I just left them out.  Get Tori Spelling’s simple, boho-vibe look for under $100!

Celebrity Redo: Get Jennifer Lopez’s Look for Less!

April 6, 2009 by  
Filed under Celebrity Redo

Jennifer Lopez is gorgeous no matter what she’s wearing BUT in this case the outfit is a bit unflattering. There’s the sweater that’s a tad bit to short and cut way to high giving her a heavier illusion. So, I decided to keep within the same black city chic look but switched the crew neck sweater to a v-neck tunic and added a ruffled top for some well needed detail. Hope you like it. Get JLo’s look for less!
