Last week I grabbed lunch with blogger besties, Dede and Britt, to celebrate a big milestone for Britt. I secretly love that they can meet up with me for lunch or go shopping on my lunch break. It is such a great beak from work but usually ends up making me not want to go back!
I wore this cute, black scalloped dress to work and lunch with the girls. Several people asked me if I had a “hot date” after work so I think you could say that this dress could also been worn outside of the office as well. Spoiler alert: There was no “hot date” but I am all about an outfit that I can transition from work to after 5. I LOVE the scalloped hem on this dress. As I have said before, whenever you have a more simple outfit, you can spice it up with the details. This is where the leopard heels, pink clutch and statement necklace came in to the picture! O and did I mention that this adorable dress is under $20?!
I think you guys like it when I give you options so I went in search of some more leopard heels and am starting to think I might need to add another pair to my collection. I wear mine literally all the time because they spice up any plain outfit. My favorites can be found here (under $40) and here (under $90).
Did the post name catch you off guard? Well between my faux sheep skin vest and leopard shoes I thought it was pretty appropriate! To be honest when I saw this vest at Marshall’s I wasn’t sure about it at first. But like most things from there I bought it and took it home to play around with it. I think because it was a little different, it scared me at first. It is definitely a piece that draws your attention and stands out. But like any well-made outfit, isn’t that a good thing?! I love when people compliment me for wearing something different or when they say “Oo I haven’t seen that before”. Fashion is a statement of self expression and if you like it, then wear it! The magic happens the moment you venture to wear something that isn’t what everyone else is wearing and is authentic to you.
I love how high fashion this vest makes me feel and not to mention it is super soft and comfortable! The length hits right above my knee making it a little longer than most normal vests. Between the length and the fur this vest is hands down a bold statement piece for anyone’s closet.
You’ve probably noticed from other posts but I just can’t get enough of this MAC lipstick shade in “Diva”. It is the perfect fall/winter color! You can get it here!
My roomie gave me this beautiful pendant necklace for Christmas and sadly it is no longer available online but I have linked a couple similar options here, here and here (very cute Kate Spade option).
I had so much fun putting together this outfit. If you are scared to venture away from “the norm”, my advice is to start small. That is kind of what I did here. I love the faux fur trend but when I saw this vest I thought it blew the normal little fur vest out of the water. I had never seen one like this before. The length took it to a whole new level. So what you can do is take a trend that is already in place and put your own spin on it. Try a different color, different length, different pattern, pair 2 trends together, break a fashion rule (because there are no rules in fashion and don’t you think otherwise), etc. Do whatever it is to make it your own and then rock it!
Since my first Thanksgiving look was more so on the comfortable side, I decided to share a dressier option for my second Thanksgiving Day outfit inspiration. The best part about this outfit is that 1) the leggings give me all the room in the world for those second (or third) helpings and 2) I picked up almost everything I am wearing from either Ross, Target, or TJ Maxx. That means this outfit is 2 things. Stylish and Cheap. My 2 favorite words to describe fashion. Don’t worry I have linked comparable, similar options that won’t break the bank.
This look might just be my favorite combo yet. If I had to pick one outfit that had almost all of my favorite fashion staples this would be it: leather leggings, plaid blanket scarf, leopard heels, and a fall hat. You will most likely find me in either leggings or jeans on Turkey day as I am sure a lot of you will be. These leather leggings are so versatile because they can be dressed up or dressed down. I chose to dress them up with my leopard heels and hat but they could be easily dressed down with riding boots or flats. You can look at my previous post, Black & White, for another take on these leather leggings.
Have a great Wednesday and Thanksgiving week friends!
Last week I attended the Bumble & Bumble event where we got to try out some of their amazing hair products. If you have not heard of them, you definitely need to check them out! Besides getting to test a prestigious brand, I met several new blogger babes. If it’s one thing I have enjoyed about starting this blog it’s getting to know other girls who enjoy the same things I do, are so uplifting, and want to see you succeed.
I threw this outfit on after work for the event. Everyone (especially all girls) love Target, but I would say they have stepped up their game pretty recently. Both this skirt and shoes are from there and I was instantly drawn to them. I had seen many skirts like this this season and Target’s prices are unbeatable so it was a no-brainer. I have also been looking for comfortable leopard heels for a few months now and who knew I would find them at Target?! Being able to throw on something easy and super cute after work can sometimes be a struggle for me since I am exhausted and just want to put on the first thing I find. Both this skirt and shoes will be fall staples for me and I recommend them for you too! Happy Friday, lovelies!
