Outfits Under $50

I’m always on the lookout for a good bargain.  Most of my scores are found at my favorite spots like Marshall’s, T.J. Maxx and Ross but I will shop anywhere at anytime as long as it has the right fit.  Lately I’ve been noticing that a lot of my outfits have been ranging from about $50-$100 so I decided to share my top 5 under $50 and next month $100. To start things off I decided to go with my latest buy a chambray top from Walmart.  I already have a bunch of chambray tops (one with polka dots, one with florals and a thick dark denim one that I sometimes use as a little jacket) so I wasn’t looking to buy more.  However, I walked by the  clearance rack at Walmart and spotted this light weight studded chambray top for $9 and I had to have it.  At $9 it’s got all the right details, a studded collar that I love, tab sleeves and the fabric is light enough to wear all year. Thinking it would be great to wear as a beach cover up… I have lots of plans for it but this time I wanted to pair it up with a mini and my brown sandals.  Not bad for an entire outfit under $50. 🙂

What I’m Wearing:

Chambray Top – $9 at Walmart

 Mini Skirt – $7.99 at Ross
Sandals (also seen here) – $24.99 from a local boutique
Necklace – $5 from a Brooklyn boutique wish I could remember the name of the store
Clutch c/o meet mark
Bracelet c/o Twisted SIlver

What I Wore On Mother’s Day

Dressing your post baby body can be a bit overwhelming but dressing up and standing in front of the camera in a outfit is just down right traumatic! I’ve made a pact with myself I’m forcing myself in front of the camera and wearing items that are already sitting in my closet (with the help of lots and of layers of spanx lol) in the hopes that it will motivate me away from my laptop and onto to the treadmill. I dont want to lose too much I just want to get rid of the belly my biggest pet peeve when getting dressed.  This specific dress that I bought for 5 bucks at Marshalls has some pleating in the front which helps conceal the pooch.  I decided to wear it for Mother’s Day when I realized that it fit me.  It was a tad big on me before and now it fits me perfectly…. talk about taking the good with the bad! I love the dress but hate that it fits. 🙂

Purple & Polka Dots

I’m not a huge fan of purple but when I caught a glimpse of the $5 price tag on this dress, I immediately yanked it off the rack.  It was then that I noticed the flecks of sparkle and the POCKETS.  I was in love!  My immediate thought was to pair it with my denim jacket but I thought I’d give it a quirky look by layering it over a polka dot button down and of course a belt (I try to belt just about anything I wear – it’s kinda my thing).   I love the definition and personality the belt gives my outfits.

Angela & Roi Handbags

I don’t know about you but my handbag is a pretty important part of my outfit, and when I pick one it has to have every detail to fit my needs because I wear it all day long and it’s usually filled to the brim!  I was recently sent the Square Dark Orange Tote by Angela & Roi to review and immediately fell in love with the bag AND the company!  It’s a roomy tote that can easily carry an ipad or books and has separate pockets on the outside (essential for people like me that lose everything). It also has a detachable strap making it not only stylish but super functional.   Angela & Roi offer a wide variety of vegan made handbags with a vintage feel that have a luxurious look without the hefty price tag.  Their classic selection of bags and colors make them closet must-haves that will never go out of style.  I also think it’s brilliant how they incorporate charitable endeavors via color. How does the Donate by Color Mission work?  Different medical issues relate to specific colors. For example, Colon Cancer awareness links traditionally with the color blue. When customers purchase a blue handbag, five dollars will automatically be donated to Colon Cancer Alliance.  Check out my tote below and for more info visit – www.AngelaRoi.com

This weekend after I celebrated my sons 8th birthday I decided to take a few days off and do what I do best…SHOP! I took my time and hit a bunch of local Tampa boutiques that I love and found a ton of great stuff on sale.  Although I never made it to a mall, I did make my obligatory stops at Ross, Marshalls and of course T.J. Maxx.  My favorite purchases were the gray booties and chambray top seen below that I found for only $5 at T.J. Maxx.  I’ve been looking for this particular worn-out grayish/taupe colored booties for some time now, and I finally found them on sale for only $20!  The built in wedge gives me the height that I always want but still keeps me super comfy.  I can’t wait to wear them with my shorts and skirts this summer (actually this weekend because it’s going to be in the 80’s).  Click here for some outfit ideas.

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

Modern Square Bag c/o meet mark find it here

I’ve had this lightweight anorak from Marshall’s for about 3 years and every fall I pull it out and finds tons of new ways to wear it,  I think it cost me only about $20 and this baby never goes out of style (it’s my “other denim jacket”).  Check out what I wore it with below and similar options as well.

Peplum & Purple From Marshall’s

Happiness is walking into a store at the last minute before going out and finding exactly what you’re looking for…and that’s exactly what happened Saturday night.  I frantically walked into Marshall’s looking for a peplum top and not only did I find it, but the details were perfect: The zipper down the back was amazing and the slighty puffed shoulder on the lace three quarter length sleeves was beyond cute. Best of all it was only $19.99!  The peplum top is super flattering and I’m sure I can wear it with a few different outfits.   This time I paired it with a simple purple skirt and Vince Camuto heels that I got at Dillards on sale, my entire outfit (excluding the bag and jewelry) was under $60!  FYI I always carry a tote with me and this particular gold one from meet mark is my current favorite for carrying essentials like flats, makeup etc. for evenings.

 

 

 

 

What I’m Wearing:

Peplum top $19.99 at Marshall’s, skirt $7.99 at Marshall’s, Vince Camuto heels $30 at Dillard’s (sold out similar version here), the always perfect tote $38 c/o meetmark.com, arrow bracelets  from Forever21 (sold out similar one here) and the gurl white bracelet c/o Twisted Silver , sunglasses c/o Stunglasses.com (also seen here)
