Chic + Versatile Workwear Outfit + My Shopping Trends

Outfit details HERE

This monochromatic red outfit is still one of my favorites.  I love the idea of wearing the same color for the entire look.  This is definitely a chic and versatile workwear outfit.  Each of the pieces can be worn together for this look, or broken apart and worn as separates with other items in your closet.  The red sweater could be worn with jeans and leopard print shoes.  And, the red pants could be paired with a denim shirt and leopard shoes.

Also, today I am joining my friends at The Blended Blog to answer some shopping questions.

And, don't miss all of my great finds and deals at the end of the post!

1. My three favorite shops
My top shops would probably be Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack, and tied for third - Old NavyJ. Crew and H&M, and Shopbop.  I know that is more than three - but Nordstrom is where I do the majority of my shopping.

2. Online or in store
I shop mostly online.  It is funny how times change.  Growing up - going to the mall was a weekly event for me.  My mom and I were always going to the mall.  Now, I do not remember the last time I went to the mall. 

3. Favorite thing to shop for
This would be a tie - shoes/boots, jackets and sweaters.

4. Favorite thing you ever bought
I have a lot of favorites - and they are mostly my investment pieces - like my hiking boots and over the knee boots.  I also love my pink leather jacket I got at J. Crew.

5. Shop alone or with someone/group
I love shopping with my mom - she is probably my favorite person to shop with, and my husband, but we mostly shop for him when shopping.  Other than that, I really prefer to shop alone; however, it is fun to shop with my friends - if it is social event. If I am really focused on buying/needing to find something - I prefer to tackle shopping alone.

6. Thrift store shopping
Thrift stores overwhelm me. For some reason, the lack of multiple pieces of the same item - is too much for my brain - and I get overwhelmed!  

7. Style or fashion icon
Funny how times change, years ago my fashion icon was Jennifer Aniston and Olivia Palermo.  Now, I have really started to follow fashion bloggers - and they have become my style icons - like Rachel Parcell (Pink Peonies), Lauren Kay Sims, Sasha Simon (LolaRio Style), and Kathleen Post (Lemon Blond)- to name a few.

  1. My mom and I were always going to the mall too. Now I do my walking for exercise at our almost abandoned one, so sad. Online is just so much easier. I just love the red and rich cream together!

    1. I worked at the mall in my early twenties and I loved the mall walkers! I was thinking about that after I read your post and your monkey fist :D I think it's so cool that you do that!

    2. Thrift stores overwhelm me as well. I do like poshmark which is like an online thrift store. I do most of my shopping online as well.

      I am in love w those leopard sandals!

  2. I should have put you as one of my style icons.

  3. Pretty inspo outfit - the bag you chose for this is so cute! I agree - I rarely go to the mall anymore even though it used to be a regular thing. I'm also a solo shopper unless it's a Kendra Scott social event. I can't shop for clothes in group settings though!
