~ The Formula: Denim Jacket ~

Still one of my favorite dresses.

Whenever I want to look pulled together but not too dressy I throw on a denim jacket.  I’ve had this dress from Ross for years and I’ve worn it solo during the summer, with sweaters and tights when it’s cold but my favorite is with denim.  I was originally going to wear my deeper blue Levi’s jacket (seen here) but I thought the distressed one from American Eagle went way better with the boho vibe. Tip:  If you’re lucky enough to get casual Friday’s at work, a denim jacket is an easy replacement for a suit or blazer and you can wear it with any skirt or pants.

What I’m Wearing:

Dress $14.99 from Ross

Distresses Denim Jacket  $39.99 from American Eagle (also seen here)

Crossbody Bag c/o meet mark

Bangles/cuff $12.99 from Macy’s

Penny Wayfarer sunglasses c/o Stunglasses.com

Maxi Dress From Day To Night

If there’s one thing I’ve learned this pregnancy it’s that a maxi dress is your best friend.  I’ve always worn them but never have I appreciated them as much as I have these past couple of months.  Besides being the comfiest thing to wear in between sizes, they’re SO versatile and great for post baby as well.  This one from meet mark has been sitting in my closet forever because it was too big but now it’s a real life saver. I LOVE the blue and its lace cap sleeves.  I’ve worn it a ton of times in so many different ways for day and night.  For day I wear it with my green anorak, chain link necklace and my one of my favorite lucky brand bag (which comes in handy to when switching out heels for flats when your feet can’t take it anymore). For night, I just added a sparkly necklace, metallic satchel and took off the jacket.

Thrift Store Find: Vintage Faux Fur Coat

February 7, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

I’ve always been an avid thrift store shopper and nothing is more exciting than finding something you love on the cheap.  Just the other day my son asked me to take him thrifting and I was SO excited not only because he showed an interest in one of my passions, but also because we were going on a day that offered 50 percent off clothes.  While my son was looking to find what he called “Cosby” type sweaters I hit the women’s clothing section and found a spotted faux fur coat for $16 but I got it $8!  I expected the coat to need some type of tailoring but it fit perfectly and it’s in amazing condition!  I won’t be wearing it too often here in Florida but I now have a super cute coat for my frequent NY visits.

What I’m Wearing:

Vintage Faux Fur Coat – $8 from Local Thrift Store

Mint Green Dress – $7.50 from T.J. Maxx

Pointy Toe Pumps $70 from Yesstyle (also seen here)

Modern Square Bag c/o meet mark find it here (also seen here)

The Formula: Peplum Tops

February 1, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

There’s something about a peplum top that’s so feminine, and as soon as you throw it on you instantly feel classy. I have a few peplum tops (you can see my lace one here) but the most flattering types are the ones that fall right at the hips and have 3/4 sleeve (but that goes for any sleeve).  This black one is like a basic tee and it’s a easy way to add a little flair to jeans or skirts.

 

What I’m Wearing:

Peplum Top – $14.99 from Kohl’s

Black Jeggings (also seen here) – $19.99 from Marshalls

 Pointy Toe Pumps – $25.50 from Charlotte Russe

Way Too Matchy Match

January 16, 2013 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

“It’s way too matchy match” is a phrase I use so often that even my kids know what I mean!  My pet peeve has little to do with color.  To me style should look effortless and when the pieces you’re wearing are too matchy match it looks intentional.  Take for example my favorite pattern stripes. I always have a striped tank, a striped scarf, or a striped sweater (like the one below) on hand whenever I feel something is a little too matchy match.  My general rule of thumb is, if it’s going to be a matchy match kinda outfit I’d rather go the monochromatic way and use the color head to toe.  Intentional?  Heck yeah but it’s a minimalist style that so chic – it supposed to be intentional.  Below I paired one of favorite striped sweaters, polka dot denim top and ankle zip skinnies.

What I’m Wearing:

Striped Sweater – $19.99 from Forever 21

Polka Dot Denim Top – $24.99 from Forever 21

Ankle Zip Skinny Jeans – $19.99 from Marshalls

3 Unconventional New Year’s Eve Outfits

December 30, 2012 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

For the most part New Year’s consists of something sparkly, short or sexy – all of which are just fine but this year why not try something a  little unconventional?  Below are 3 ideas for an outfit that’s not tight, short or even sparkly  – we can leave that all up to the jewelry!  🙂

Anyone can wear a mini but it takes someone with style to rock a chic floor length maxi!  Pair it with a cropped blazer for a dressy effortless feel, and metallic heels for sex appeal.

I love the idea of black and white for New Year’s, so why not try adding white heels to an all black pant suit or a sexy black off-the-shoulder sweater and leggings.

Stripes are a classic and totally unconventional for New Year’s and that’s what makes it cool!  Try a striped sweater dress with black opaque tights and red heels for a dressy yet still easy-to-wear look (and it’ll never go out of style!).

Like everyone else, I too had a ton of gift returns to make and wearing comfy clothes for the long lines was a must.  I decided to wear the denim leggings I found at Ross that I love (dont judge they’re super cute lol) and I threw on a pink tank and polka dot cardigan over it with a cobalt blue crossbody bag that coincidentally matched my nails.  Oh and I just had to wear my new watch that meet mark sent for me to review – it’s PERFECT!

Jeggings $5.99 at Ross

Polka Dot Cardigan (also seen here) $10.99 at Old Navy

I can’t believe Christmas is in 6 days and I also can’t believe that I got all my shopping done in less than five days and even found a few items for myself. 🙂  I was shopping at TJ Maxx and took a quick glance at its clearance section and found this cute floral dress for only $7!! Only in FL can you wear a summer dress in December and still be hot because you threw on a jacket!  Oh and yes I’m suppose to still have my arm in a sling but I refuse to wear it out because it’s hideous! lol
