How to Wear Bold Prints at the Office

Bold Prints at the Office

Leopard, plaid and now snakeskin are three prints that you can expect to see a lot of this season in the fashion industry and that includes work wear too! I was pleasantly surprised to find several leopard and plaid pieces at Walmart recently that were not only cute but affordable and office appropriate too!

If you work at a more conservative office, start small with prints for example wear a pair of leopard flats or possibly a leopard camisole under a solid blazer. Small pops of print are still professional while bringing a little bit of flare into the otherwise repetitive mix. If you are in a more relaxed environment and want to be a little more bold, purchase a statement piece. For example this could be a plaid blazer, a leopard pair of slacks or a snakeskin dress. The key to statement pieces is pairing them with a more muted, usually solid colored piece.

This peplum top is one of those great work to weekend tops that I fully plan on wearing with a leather jacket, jeans and a pair of strappy black heels.

Where I Buy Affordable Denim

Abercrombie Denim

I try not to have favorites in the fashion industry since my job is to try everything once but there is one store that I constantly come back to for their quality, affordable denim and that’s Abercrombie. While I love a pair of designer denim just as much as the next person, I can honestly say I own more Abercrombie jeans than anything else in my closet. I know this for a fact because I just organized all of my jeans by designer and the Abercrombie stack had 3 times as many as any other brand!

Abercrombie has all of their jeans 50% off right now so I’m sharing a few of my favorite styles. For sizing reference, I am typically a 25 in Abercrombie jeans. They run true to size but if you are worried about the fit I would size up as I am a 24/25/0 in other brands and always wear a 25 here.

The Ultra High Rise Ankle Straight Jeans are my most worn pair of denim in my closet right now. They are so easy to throw on with a basic tee, bodysuit or casual top. These jeans do not have any stretch so if in between sizes, size up. They also come in several different washes and styles.

The Ultra High Rise Mom Jeans are another favorite of mine. This pair doesn’t have pockets on the back so they are very flattering on the rear. They also do not have any stretch so if you are in between sizes, size up! The belt is detachable and can be traded out. I am 5’4″ and in the regular length.

The Button Front High Rise Super Skinny Ankle Jeans are another favorite. These are my go to when I am going out because they have a ton of stretch and are very comfortable. My favorite way to wear them is with a bodysuit or lace cami. The jeans come in almost 20 different washes and styles if you aren’t interested in the black, distressed style.

Cruising Around Houston

Walmart Huffy Bike

A few weeks ago I posted an Instagram with yet another pair of biker shorts (the obsession runs deep), and captioned the photo “True Story: my biker shorts have never been on a bike”. And then all of .2 seconds later I had an epiphany that a bicycle would be a great, fun idea to stay active. I’ve been trying to find new ways lately to stay active that aren’t just going to the gym so I hopped on Walmart’s website to see if I could find a cheap, decent bike since these ideas are usually fleeting and no sense in spending a lot of money on something that might not seem like a good idea in two weeks!

I had read and heard really good reviews about Huffy bikes and found this one for just under $150! It reminds me of an old timey bike that you would find cruising down to the beach. I was already sold on how cute it was but the basket, drink and phone holder were definitely selling points too and the very best part was that I ordered it and got it the very next day! Walmart has free next day delivery on over 100,000 items when you spend $35. So my crazy Sunday idea turned into a Monday reality. 2019, y’all.

If you are looking for an affordable cruiser bike, I highly suggest this one! The bicycle does come dismantled so you will have to assemble it but it honestly was not hard at all. It took maybe 30 minutes to put together. The seat is very comfortable and it’s just as cute in person as it is online. I will say that some of the plastic parts are not the highest quality  but overall, for less than $150 the bike is more than enough for what I want to use it for. If you don’t want the old timey look, Huffy actually makes the same bike for under $100 here.

The Best Portable Charger

Motile Smart Tech Accessories

Coming from someone who is on their phone 24/7, I have tried countless portable chargers over the years. I usually have one in every bag, purse and corner of my house! Even though I charge my phone every night, it’s usually dead before lunch time. If you can relate, I’m about to introduce you to your new best friend!

Walmart just introduced their very own tech line named Motile that is chic AND cheap. Two of my favorite things in this world:) The premium line features everything from portable chargers, charging cords, and backpacks with built in chargers to wireless keyboards and mouses. Like I’ve said, I’ve tried out quite a few portable chargers and I love the Motile one not just because it’s cute and colorful, but because it’s actually a 2-in-1. This means it has double the charge of others and is compatible with all Apple products. The magnetic base functions as a power bank with a USB that allows you to charge two devices at once. The best part is if you are charging your phone, there is absolutely no cord required! It’s also so convenient that I can charge my laptop and phone at the same time or if I just want to have double the charge for my phone, that’s an option too!

Unlike other portable chargers, it is small enough to fit in even the smallest of purses and makes the perfect travel accessory. I never want to be without a charge when I’m at the airport or about to jump in a random Uber. I’m telling you ladies that it has saved me on so many occasions! If you are in the market for any type of affordable smart tech accessories, I would highly recommend checking out Motile at Walmart! Don’t forget that they have free shipping on orders over $35 and free in store pick up on all orders!
