Happy Saturday, readers! Ok, was it just me or was this week nearly the longest week ever?! I guess the time change still has me like 😴…. BUT, it’s the weekend so time to enjoy some “you” time! 💕✨
So once the weekend zooms on by and Monday morning comes around, do you ever rack your mind of what to wear? I definitely do (actually, every day). I try to focus on a couple things when I put together a typica work outfit:
Bold statement necklace
This is one of my latest favorites! I’ve always been obsessed with tulle – chic and just enough feminine. Black pants are an easy go-to, and I popped the outfit with cheetah print heels and a jeweled necklace. The cognac belt ties the neutrals and pattern all together. Voilà!
What is your typical work outfit? Do you focus on one piece or have a specific go-to?! I want to hear!!
Hello & happy Satur-YAY, readers! BLESS UP for a little relaxation & self-care after a long week. ✨💕
Despite the dropping temps here in Ohio, I for one am so ready for spring! I mean pastels, florals & patterns for days… all of my current wardrobe obsessions are definitely springing into spring…
I fell in love with this Vine Mixed Media Sweater T. It’s almost like a basic in the front with a party around back – HEEEYY! The sheer floral back is gathered, almost like a high peplum, & the navy shade is to die for.
Bonuses: it’s a high-low top – so hi, yes, perfect to tuck in in the front, & there’s baby pink hues in the florals. Navy & light pink together are gorg, always. 🌸
Next is this beautiful Henley top with bell sleeves, which are make a HUUGE comeback (yay)! The top’s textured pinstripes and buttons are paired perfectly, too. Plus, who doesn’t look good in baby blue?!
A gray blazer is a must. I wear this all year round & it’s definitely been one of my best wardrobe purchases. It’s the perfect staple to dress / sass-up any outfit!
OH MY LANTA! When I came across these fab floral pumps, I think my heart skipped a beat. So I went for the gold! Seldomely do you see wild, fun & colorfully patterned heels, & these can easily be a pop for any basic outfit. 🌸😍
What pieces are you OBSESSED with for spring?! What pattern/color is a must for you?
We all have those mornings where we’re running behind and trying to look semi decent at the same time. Here are 5 tips to always look your best (even when you’re running a few late…)!
Cheers to the freakin’ weekend, ya’ll! *clinks mimosa glasses 🥂
So we’ve all had those mornings where we’re running – nonstop – to do the hair, sweep on some makeup & toss on an above-average outfit for the day. This is often a challenge, especially when you’re racing the clock, & oftentimes traffic, e.g. every Monday morning…
No matter your style, budget or profession, with the right set of wardrobe skills there’s no reason to not look your best & slay the day away!
Read a few quick & simple tips below:
A black everything. ⬛️
I feel like I say this in most of my posts, but black is a closet staple. It’s always a safe bet (no matter the dress code) & it’s tough to mess it up. Pair an all black outfit with a statement necklace & you’re golden!
Wardrobe staples are key.
Keep your favorite tops, sweaters and jeans on rotation. Creating a “uniform” of sorts will save time & money. Seriously.
Offset makeup from outfit.
Don’t pair dramatic makeup with an over-the-top outfit, as it screams “it took me hours to get ready.” If you wear bold makeup, pair it with a more classic and simple look. I recommend checking out Tarte’s products, especially the Tartiest Matte Lip Paint! 💄
Fashion trend: half-tuck.
Casual + effortless ✔️ (this looks fab with jeans & dress pants)
A good pair of heels will always give you confidence, & they can be the statement of any outfit. 👠
Do you have any tips on what you do to complete a look?! Please share!
It’s Satur-yay! 🌼🌞 the weather here is gorgeous. I feel like spring fever is upon us…
I love getting dressed up as much as the next girl, but when it comes to the weekend I go for casual and comfort. Leggings and neutrals are usually my go-tos!
For all things comfort, I paired this light and chic Simply Vera jacket with LuLaRoe black leggings, grey GH Bass Oxfords and simple gold jewelry. + I feel like I blend in with nature – super neutrals, right?! 😉
AND let me just talk about this Vera jacket. It sinches in the inside and seemlesslu accentuates my waiste which elongates zee legs. The large front pockets are perfect to throw things in and the hood. No words. Shoutouts to Kohls! ❤
Oh my. The Oxfords! I recommend these for anyone and everyone. They’re so cute paired with skinny dress pants (I.e. Old Navy’s Pixie pants), jeans and leggings; they’re so versatile and comfy. I chose they grey with a subtle but pop of color, peach bottoms – just adds some feminism! You can find your perfect pair on GH Bass online.
So what do you wear for your weekends when you’re out and about?! Do you go for comfort or a bit more dressy?
As winter feels like it’s officially setting in here in Columbus, warm layers are 🗝!
I get so bored with leggings and jeans… ALAS cargo pants have made a HUGE comeback! I honestly never thought I’d make that statement, ever. The pockets add a bit of texture and pizzazz to the pants – subtle and not too crazy!
I’ve paired these bad boys with my all-time-favorite turtleneck! I love this piece because it’s comfy, stripped (perfect basic pattern) and is long enough to cover the goodies! 😉 What more could you ask for?! Shoutouts to Target for all then good goods, too!
You can pair a look like this with a fun and sassy necklace, too! This long pendant necklace (Vernacular) is always my top pick for nearly any outfit because of the mix of wood + clear beads, gold accents and opaque pendant. Easy breezy!
To finish, these new, grey velvet, chunky pumps from Target are where it’s at. They’re a bit different but can be the perfect finish for lots of looks. Plus, they’re just the right amount of sass. 😉
Alright! What are some of your favorite recent buys?! What do you pair them with (new or old)?
Until next time, Xx
Ps: I love this quote – “Life isn’t perfect but your outfit can be.” I feel this rings true. Life isn’t always controllable. But what you wear is 100% within your control. Make it count!
Oh my lanta, it’s the freakin’ weekend! 🙌🏻😉 BUT it’s 24 degrees, which calls for major sweater/blanket sweater weather. Can we actually survive 6 more weeks of this?! ❄️
So despite the chilly winter weather, my closet comes to the rescue!
I’m all about staying warm, comfy & fashionable. With that, I stick with staples. Staples & neutrals. Mixing the two together can easily make wild and different outfits that you can wear time & time again! And I’m all about the sweaters: long, short, bulky & light.
Now, let’s talk blanket scarves. They can be worn as a scarf while outside or even as an accessory! And you can twist and fold them so many different ways. Like hello, LOVE!! Even with blanket scarves, I try to pick neutral colors that can be worn with all different outfits!
Ponchos are fab. They add warmth & style to any look. Black, grey & cream are my favorite colors: prime for pairing statement jewelry. ✨
Side note: this gorgeous wardrobe saved my wardrobe, curtsey of a dear friend of mine. I recommend a wardrobe if your tight on space or are looking for a statement piece to utilize.
So what’s in your wardrobe?! What pieces do you stay warm with? Let’s hear!!
Happy Satur-YAY/happy weekend, readers! I hope you all have had at least 5 minutes to stop and take a breath after this week – I don’t know about you, but my week was a whirlwind! ✨
So I’ve been wanting to put together a weekly post with a consistent theme… I’m always indecisive when it comes to topics and what I want to share, but here we are, “Style Saturday!” If you have thoughts on what you might like to see/read for these weekly posts, shout it out to me!
Handbags are everything to a woman. They can hold anything and everything imaginable while out-&-about. Big or small, crossbody or shoulder, purses are meant to be fashionable and functional.
I picked out a few types of F & F purses from my (ever-growing) collection:
This Dooney & Bourke crossbody is hands down my fave! (Ps never underestimate local thrift shops… sometimes they have the best gems!) This bag has some ahh-mazing hidden storage areas which makes plenty of room for lipsticks, gum, charging cords & all the other essentials 😉❤
This lush crossbody is the perfect mid-size bag. The tassel adds just a bit of sass in the bag’s detail, too.
And of course, every female has her go-to catch-all bag! This GH Bass bag is perfect for one reason: it’s reversible! LIKE HI, YES! It can turn from black to congac in a matter of seconds. 😉 10/10
Whew! Ok, now I want to see some of your favorite fashionable & functional handbags? Where do you tend to find yourself buying handbags, or do you collect a variety of brands?! 👛
