Best Last Minute Deals

Dress (Only $13) // Tweed Skirt (Only $12) // Plaid Blouse (Only $16)

Trendy + Affordable Workwear Outfit

snake print pumps, white work pants, black satin blouse, workwear outfit, women work outfit


1. Satin Utility Blouse (40% off) (Or this similar 40% off blouse // Or this 40% off blouse)
2. White Pants (40% off) // Also love these white pants for 40% off

Finding both trendy and affordable workwear options can be difficult at times.  I have found if I "invest" in a few staple pieces - it makes life a lot easier when getting ready for work.   Plus, I really believe what we wear - gives us a boost in confidence.

Some staples I have bought for work in the past are a satin blouse, like the one above, which happens to be 40% off, and some good fitting - classic, yet trendy pants.  I'll admit it can be difficult to find pants for work.  I have found most of my work pants at Ann Taylor and LOFT.  And, when buying pants, my recommendation right now is to go with the trend of the "cropped" ankle ones.  The fit o the pant and where the pant leg ends on this pair - is perfect.  

Lastly, add some "statement making" shoes to the outfit. I am so happy that snake prints are making a comeback.  I truly love my leopard pumps, but I love snake print just as much (maybe more) - and they can be styled so many different ways for work.   (And, if you want people to compliment you on your look - and your shoes - these will definitely get attention.)

Those snake print pumps above complete this look. And, they are also 40% off!  

Plus, those snake print pumps would make a great casual Friday outfit by swapping out the white pants and black blouse for some dark wash jeans and an off white blouse like this one.

This leopard shirt dress is $20.

This essential blouse for only $30.

This cozy cardigan for 40% off.

This is my daily winter puffer coat - and it's 40% off.

This classic wool winter coat - in staple colors - is 33% off.

These pink rain boots for $20.

This "vertical" striped sweater for 40% off.

This chunky cropped cardigan for under $30.

These popular suede booties for 40% off -great with crop flare jeans.

This camo cardigan for $25.

This straw tote for $20.

This striped v-neck tee for $8.

Happy Friday!

I hope you have had a wonderful week.  It has been a busy week for me, and I am very happy that it is Friday.  I am looking forward to relaxing this weekend, and catching up with Project Runway All Stars, and continuing my re-watching of Downton Abbey.

This week I tackled some big projects on my "to do" list, like erasing my entire computer, and re-installing the old OS in order to be able to install the new OS, and all the applications.  Other than a flashing ??? (question mark) after I erased the hard drive - that was my only problem - which I was able to solve. I have installed most of my applications, I believe, and now, I am just finishing up my Lightroom and Photoshop presets, and some additional font installs.   This process was long overdue - but I am so happy to have accomplished it!

Now, on to more "to do" items... and, some great shopping deals this President's Day weekend...

This is a long post - with a lot of great re-caps of my favorites of the week. I hope you make it through the entire post to the end!  There are a lot of good deals - and outfit inspiration!

My favorite $20 sweater.

This $24 sweater - in great spring colors.

This pink sweater I would like to buy.

This leopard cardigan as low as $16.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Did anyone else love this day when they were a kid? It was one of my favorite "school" holidays.  For our Valentine's Day classroom party, we would all decorate our own "mailbox" with hearts and wrapping paper. Then everyone in the class would "mail" a Valentine card to our classmates.  I always had so much fun opening up each card from a fellow classmate.  I "loved" the day.  Mostly because I loved craft projects, like making the fun mailbox. But, also, probably because it was fun to see what boy sent me a cute card!

Anyway, with it being the day of all things red and pink, I thought I would share these red sweater outfits. These looks show how to style and accessorize a bold red sweater.  My favorite is mixing leopard with the red, but I also love denim on denim with the addition of the white shoes.  And, right now, white booties and pumps, or any white shoe is very popular!

Blush Pink Sweater + White Skinny Jeans Outfit

white skinny jeans, blush pink sweater, kate spade satchel, floral scarf


The blush pink sweater and white skinny jean outfit today was inspired by my post on Friday.  Since our style prompt today on The Blended Blog is today is to re-create a look from someone, and I thought I would use this outfit from one of the first bloggers I followed, Pink Peonies.  Her personal style has two sides - one more edgy and the other more feminine.  Personally, I prefer the edgier-side.  For her more feminine side, she has launched her own design business and has created some beautiful pieces, like this lace blouse or this lace skirt that are both on sale for 70% off.

As far as this look, it is a perfect transitional outfit from winter to spring.  The lightness of the white jeans with the blush and the beige, and that floral scarf (that is only $10) brings it all together.  And, if you are looking for a lighter-weight sweater to go with this look, I found this one that is on sale for $24.

Last thing, be sure to head over The Blended Blog and see what outfits my fellow friends are re-creating.  My good friend, Deena, is re-creating one of my style boards!  And, I love the look she created.  (Be sure to head to her blog to see which look of mine she re-created - and to see the kind things she wrote about me HERE.) Besides great style (and hair), Deena is a supportive friend, and someone I wish was my neighbor - so we could hang out and talk.  She has the best personality - makes me laugh - and shares in my love of old school hip-hop/rap music!

This week is Valentine's Day - can you believe it?  The weeks just keep flying by.  How can it be mid February already!

Yesterday, I shared five ways to style a moto jacket, and as I was going through my Pinterest boards, I realized I had even more ways I had styled a moto jacket.  With Valentine's Day this week, I thought these looks with the red jeans, and the heart necklaces were perfect!  And, with St. Patrick's Day next month, I thought the green sweater outfit was also a great pick.

One other thing, I would like to say a big "thank you" to my friend, Sarah who is a fellow Blended Blog friend.  She said the kindest things about me yesterday for our #TBBLoveHop.  You can read more about what she wrote HERE.  Sarah is someone I hope I get to hang out with in the future. She is the genuine friend - who is fun - and I would love getting to know better.

1. Moto Jacket (similar) // 2. Jeans // 3.  Cami // 4. Earrings   
5. Bag // 6.  Suede Boots

In keeping with my commitment to try to show you as many ways to maximize items in your closet, today, I am sharing five different ways to style a moto jacket.  My moto jacket is one of my favorite jackets.  I wear it a lot in the spring and fall.  I find it can be worn so many different ways and pretty much works with most of my outfits.

 The first outfit is one of my favorites. I love the almost all black look with a pop of pink.  The jeans are actually more of a dark grey, not a true black.  Another favorite look is the one with the red buffalo plaid shirt. (That plaid shirt happens to be on sale for $6!).  This look is more of a 90s inspired outfit.

As I have shown with these outfits, moto jackets can also be worn with solids, as well as stripes and prints, like the outfit where I mixed leopard and stripes.  Or you can style a moto jacket with beige and some leopard print shoes.

A black moto jacket can also be styled with lighter colors, like the blush pink and beige.  You don't always have to style it with darker colors.

For me, my black moto jacket is a closet staple, and one purchase that I am so glad I bought.  Moto jackets can range in price.  You can splurge on a leather option, or opt for a lesser expensive faux leather one.  I have rounded up some moto jackets that I have found.   I found this moto jacket that is on sale for $53 or this one on sale for $64.

UNDER $100

OVER $100

Favorite $20 Sweater + Weekend Deals

Hope you are having a great weekend!

 This $20 v-neck grey sweater that I am wearing happens to be on sale for $16 right now - and is one of my favorites.  This look is just one more way to style white jeans.  Yesterday, I shared some style inspiration on how to style white jeans with coral or pink for winter.  White jeans do not have to be for summer only - and sometimes I almost like white jeans in the winter more than in the summer.

Valentine's Day Inspired Outfit

red rebecca minkoff bag, grey jeans, white sweater, black boots

1. Blouse (40% off) // 2. Heart Necklace // 3. Sweater (40% off)
4. Red Bag (50% off) // 5. Grey Jeans // 6. Lipstick // 7. Boots

Can you believe Valentine's Day is next week?  Does anyone else think that time continues to move faster and faster?

Since it is my goal to share as many ways to wear items - I thought this look was a great example of how the same sweater and jeans can be styled two different ways.  Last week, I shared the same grey jeans and sweater with a leopard coat and cognac boots. You can see the full look HERE.  Today, I am styling it with an off white blouse, red bag (that happens to be 50% off), and some cute boots that also are 50% off - for a Valentine's Day inspired look.

In the winter, I like layering a blouse under my sweaters sometimes for extra warmth - plus I think it adds a little extra something to the look.

If you are looking for more Valentine's Day looks, last year I styled a red and leopard outfit, or this look with cute heart accessories.

Two Ways to Style Leopard Sweatshirt

leopard sweatshirt, black mules, black skinny jeans

1. Leopard Sweatshirt // 2. Black Jeans (40% off) // 3. Lip Duo
4. Leather Satchel (Similar for less) // 5. Mules

pink mules, leopard sweatshirt, white skinny jeans

4. Satchel // 5. Pink Mules

This leopard sweatshirt may be one of the most popular items I have shared recently. When I posted it on Instagram a few weeks ago, it had quadruple the number of likes.  The leopard sweatshirt must have been so popular that it sold out online and in stores - BUT the good news is that is it back in stock!  The first look with the leopard sweatshirt styled with black jeans, my mom actually inspired the look.  I thought she looks so trendy and chic wearing the outfit.  And, if you want to wear something that gets people attention - this is it.  She said when she wears that outfit - people take notice. (And, if you are looking for a sweater option - with a leopard print - I found this sweater for only $35.)

I also love it styled with winter white jeans and a pop of pink!  And, I found some pink mules on sale for 70% off (for only $30)!

You may have noticed lately that I am trying to promote staple items that can be worn multiple ways by showing more than one way to style the item.  Last week, I shared 10 different ways to style cognac boots, and the week before, I shared five different ways to style black jeans.  And, if you love being comfy - I shared three different ways to wear sneakers.  I have definitely gotten more picky about what I buy.  If it is not something I can wear different ways - I usually decide not to buy it.

Also, if you like this leopard look - I also shared last week how to style a grey leopard jacket with cognac boots.  And, the jacket could easily be swapped out for this grey leopard sweatshirt for under $20 - that looks great with the look, too!

Buffalo Plaid + Moto Jacket Style

1. Plaid Shirt (Only $6) // 2. Earrings // 3. Boots // 4. Jeans

Plaid Shirt (On sale for $6) // Skinny Jeans // White Pumps

Did you watch the Super Bowl game?  What a crazy game - I am just happy my team won.

As far as my look, I love my red buffalo plaid shirt!  I don't do a lot of prints - but I will wear a plaid or leopard print.  This plaid shirt is on sale for $6.
