Hello friends and happy almost Wednesday! (I love the week when it’s halfway through so maybe I’m jumping the gun) LOL!
Denim is a big trend now, so I thought I would share a way to wear denim that you might not have thought before.
This is a denim on denim look. Don’t be afraid to try this one, it’s very trendy but fun! I matched a denim jacket with denim jeans (both from OldNavy but the jeans -cropped flare raw edge-were on clearance for $8) along with a black tee (Madewell) and black (western style) fringe boots (Target). The way this outfit works is the wash of the jacket and jeans need to match quite closely- don’t use two different washes.
I also added a Betsy Johnson heart shaped leopard necklace and earrings and a pop of a leopard backpack and there you go! A classy but trendy look that any woman can rock!
Sorry it’s been so long! Work has been crazy with three big trainings in three weeks! That left me pretty busy and at night I was worn out.
But I’m back and ready to share some fun content!
Closet shoppers pay attention! 😂
I’ve had this long jacket almost two year (OldNavy) and these amazing heels around three years from (Nordstrom Rack). I combined these two with my sweater dress from Target and (Shazam)! I have a new amazing outfit that’s super on trend now!
I get so excited when I discover a new way to wear something old! Plus it’s always fun to wear these suede heels (I’m so glad I’ve had them this long- they’re one of my most comfortable heels!
Anytime you can shop your closet and discover something new is a good day!
Wow I hope everyone is staying warm! We had a huge snowstorm last night into today and there is about 8 inches of wet cold snow out there. Be safe too!
I’m continuing my thankful thrifting/shopping my closet today! This will be a regular feature until after Christmas. I hope you enjoy 🙂
Today I’m sharing a pink/gold/cream ensemble from last year and earlier this year. I snagged these gorgeous gold pull on pants from TJMaxx in July (In Jackson Hole when I was visiting family) and this cream knit top, leopard boots (last year), and scarf from Target this year. I always have a hard time thinking of something to put with these pants but until my thrifting thankful challenge, never had I ever thought of putting them with pink! It’s such a pretty combination don’t you think?
Just to make sure I was warm just in case things turned cold (this was last Thursday-I plan my pictures in advance) I wore my tan coat snagged in September from Oldnavy for like $5 (I had some rewards) and I stayed really warm because it did start to rain/snow.
I am really enjoying my thrifting challenge. Some people might think it’s not a real thrifting challenge because I’m not buying things at a thrift store, but I think it’s thrifty because I’m shopping my closet! It’s such a challenge but yet it’s so fun! And it let’s me focus on being thankful for what I have while also being aware of others needs around me. Win/win!
So friends, the next time you think you need to shop…just look around the corner in your closet 🙂
I thought I would start out the week right by sharing a recent shopping trip to my own closet!
I have a pink pleated skirt (Asos) a pink sweater (H&M) both from last year and I love pink! I got some inspiration from my friend @trinagrand to wear all one color as a bold styling tip. I paired my skirt and sweater with some glittery earrings (Charming Charlies), a leopard scarf (Target), and my leopard pumps (Oldnavy). All these items are at least a year old but they look new when paired together!
Monochromatic pairings are very chic and trendy right now and get a special boost with the leopard accessories and sparkle. I think it also gives me a special boost in confidence by just wearing these bold colors!
I am thinking of wearing this ensemble to hubs Christmas party in the next couple weeks; it will be cold so I might add my faux fur leopard coat, won’t that be festive??
I hope these next weeks of posts inspire you to SHOP YOUR CLOSET too!
Hello friends! And happy Wednesday! Sometimes I get overwhelmed on Monday (it seems a lot to get three groups accomplished between Monday-Tuesday) but this week I had more energy and not so overwhelmed. It might be I’m having a Cabi party on Thursday and Saturday traveling to St George Utah to see “Thriller” at Tuacahn Amphitheater. So yeah I’m super excited this week!
But I wanted to share one secret of dressing for fall and I promised to share my super affordable coat from OldNavy ($10).
My friend ANNE (!) found this amazing jumper on clearance ($7) at Target but unfortunately (for her) it didn’t fit and she passed it on to me. It fits me perfect and I used a strip of leather as a belt along with a nude t shirt and cognac heels (these cheap from OldNavy too).
Now it’s been super cold in the morning but warmer later in the afternoon so this morning I’ll be wearing my gorgeous new taupe (cheap) trench type jacket from OldNavy and the taupe really pops with the jumper underneath. It’s such a fun combination.
I hope this idea helps you think of ways you can also dress for fall (cold in morning and warm afternoons)! It doesn’t have to be so hard ❤️ plus you can do it very affordably!
Hello friends and happy weekend! Thank goodness we made it through the work week right??
Today I’m sharing how easy it is to be trendy and chic on a budget. When I say budget, I normally mean 40% off at JCPenney or 25% off Cartwheel app at Target or rewards from OldNavy cutting the price of a gorgeous coat to $10. This is my budget definition 😊 I love to get something fun and trendy for a great price!
Recently I found a gorgeous pair of pants at Target-Universal Thread that are a deep wine color- on sale -bogo 50% off. I also found a cute print top with a fun neckline and sleeves at JCPenney for 40% off. I combined these two things with last fall’s plaid jacket (also Target-WhoWhatWear and I believe on sale when I purchased) and my last year white boots from Charlotte Russe online-they were $20 and I’ve worn them tons of times.
Some people think you have to spend a lot of money to be on trend but these stores I’ve mentioned almost always have what I’m looking for -for the best price!
Next post I’ll share my $10 coat from OldNavy !
Here we are at the tipping edge of a three day weekend! Yay! I hope everyone has some fun plans?
To start my weekend out, I went to the movie theatre at 830 am this morning and picked up tickets to “Solo” through MoviePass. Great start to my holiday! But I digress…
I wanted to share how a couple of my outfits lately have reminded me of Girl Scout Cookies- specifically Samoa’s and Thin Mints 😂
I love mint jeans and got these cute distressed ones from OldNavy with a coupon for $20 and I like to wear them with anything!
One day I paired them with my leopard Calvin Klein blouse from Macys and the outfit reminded me of a GS Samoa cookie! (With my circle bag 💼 looking like a cookie too!)
Then yesterday I wore my mint jeans with my gingham blouse from Express and felt it looked like a Thin Mint cookie!
(I can relate anything to chocolate, friends!)
Thanks for reading and happy Memorial Day Weekend!
I was so excited this morning!
I wanted to wear my yellow blouse, actually it’s more gold. Yellow is such a trendy and fun color lately; it’s a color you can combine with almost anything but I wanted a new combination! (That’s so unlike me right??)
But it’s unreasonable to always have a new outfit! It’s more fun to be creative and create something new out of clothes I already have.
I’ve also seen (online and in magazines) many outfits combining pajama pants in every day outfits! Who would think?? Trust me, it’s cute though.
I realized I had a pair of striped pants (I bought a couple years ago in South Carolina-at Tommy Bahama) and my daughter always told me they looked like pajama pants! Haha!
So I combined my Tommy Bahama pants and my yellow JCPenney blouse along with tan sandals from Old Navy-Score! I have a new outfit and appears to be pajama pants!
Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think or if you want to try it out yourself!
I discovered something the last week or so: I follow several popular ladies on IG and I realized one I follow that used to tag affordable fashion is not doing so much anymore. I think she might be getting too popular (?) or too many followers (?) and is now linking outfits (Kate Spade for example) that are just gorgeous but not attainable for the every day woman.
I can’t afford, except for an unusual occasion (see once every few years) a $250 dress and I get frustrated following people that link items that are super expensive ($$$). I would rather pay less for clothes.
So I thought I would share a couple of inexpensive items that are trendy now but super cheap!
I perused several stores looking for a white jean jacket and lite pink jeans. JCPenney has both for around $80 with a 20% coupon. But the next day I found both these items (jacket and jeans) at Old Navy for (think it was $51). There was a sign above the jackets showing them 50% off so I got the jacket for 20! Typically you can also find coupons for OldNavy or you might have rewards and it’s even cheaper.
I saw someone else wearing something similar except higher prices at a high end store. I don’t need high end items; I love to find great deals so I thought I would pass on my finds to you my friends! Happy Thursday!
