Let’s Talk Socks – #3

If you haven’t been following this week, I have teamed up with Chrissy’s Knee High Socks to bring you a week of styling knee and thigh high socks! (If you want to catch up then read: Let’s Talk Socks – #1 and Let’s Talk Socks – #2) The last two posts were featuring thigh highs so today I am changing it up and debuting some knee socks…

Plaid and Polka Dots

I know plaid and polka dots may sound like a weird combination, but don’t knock it before you see it! If you’re daring enough, try pattern mixing, it is actually fun and you can make some cute outfits. I know my sisters would be so proud of me because I am usually always the matching one. These still kind of match though with the colors. Anyways this is a perfect winter outfit for really any occasion: going out, at work, in class, or even doing nothing but you still want to look cute. You know, like when you need to run to Target and you still want to look cute but not like you’re trying to look cute for Target. It is an effortlessly cute outfit. Not to mention it is pretty warm and cozy. I rocked these socks slightly scrunched down with black Steve Madden combat boots, thick warm black leggings (these can be substituted with any tight black bottoms), a navy, white, and red flannel from Target, a button up, navy cardigan from G Stage (the sleeves of the flannel HAVE to come out of the bottom of the sleeves of the cardigan and cuffed over to make this outfit work otherwise it is kind of dark, it just adds a little extra), and a navy and gold statement necklace from Charming Charlie. The whole outfit blended really well. Take a look…

Target Temptations 

I went to Target today to ONLY get my niece a birthday present for her 3rd birthday and to get chips and dip for her party. I took a detour through the clothes though, duh, and found so many cute things for fall and winter! Oh my goodness I was like “I love this”, and “ooo look at that!” All in my head though since I was there alone. Of course since I didn’t have a shopping buddy I spammed my bfffff with pictures of everything that I liked. So I will share my wish list of pictures with you now. 

Check out this open sweater

  
I tried it on and it kind of looks like I’m wearing a blanket, yet I liked it still haha (don’t mind my face)

  

After wandering aimlessly I moved on to shoes. So many boots!

Like these 

 

Which are a perfect color. Oh and these 

  

LOVE these booties. And I surprised myself by liking these

   
 
And was totally thinking I could wear them with tights and the red flannel blanket sweater. 

Anyways I have been looking for pointy leopard flats and found some!

  

But they had this funky little heel that I wasn’t digging…
  

So no deal on the heel. 
Lastly I saw accessories for boots. How. Cute. Are. These?

   
 
Ugh super cute, I want everything. I’m hoping to get everything slowly, piece by piece. Target you tempt me so! 

The BEST VEST

So as promised, the details from today’s outfit! I love when you wake up excited for the day because you can’t wait to wear the outfit that you picked out. See style and fashion can affect your mood! If you look good, you feel good! Anyways I was SO EXCITED that my Maison Jules vest finally came in (from my last post Deals and Steals)! I say finally like it was forever but it was really like 3 whole days haha. Of course since my vest came in last night I wanted to wear it today. I couldn’t think of what to wear it with though. Finally while trying to fall asleep it came to me. My best thoughts always come to me when I am about to fall asleep and I am convinced I will remember them in the morning, that is a serious gamble. I remembered though! Today was the coolest day of the week at a whole 79 degrees so I took full advantage and busted out my boots! These Madden Girl boots have probably been one of my best investments, I think this is my 4th year with them, but not the point. I paired my new olive green vest with a loose, striped, shift tank dress, knee high ruffle socks, my camel colored boots, and topped it off with a nude statement necklace. I was so pleased with how it came out! I can’t wait for all of the other ways I can style this vest. So far I have another outfit in mind that is inspired off a picture I saw on Instagram, but it is still too hot for that outfit. Check out today’s though!

Tragic Fashion- Tomorrow’s Forecast: Rainy with a Touch of “Fur-Nim”

Now that we have started March, Spring will be here soon enough. Infact in 19 days Spring will be knocking. Therefore I am going to take advantage of these cold few days to squeeze a few more California Winter outfits in. Tomorrow’s outfit will be fur and denim, or what I call, Fur-Nim. It’s something I haven’t paired yet, but I waited so long to buy my fur vest that I have only worn once, and I am just so obsessed with my chambray top I probably wear it twice a week, of course in different ways. Tomorrows style will consist of my faded chambray button up worn as just a top, black skinnies, brown ankle booties, tan fur vest, and a statement necklace. Almost all of these items have been on the blog but separate. See them here in a whole outfit! Happy rainy day tomorrow! 









Necklace- Tragic Fashion- Basics & Statements I Booties- Tragic Fashion- Bootie-Licious

Tragic Fashion- Sale Alert!

Last night, I did what I always do, and it paid off! I went to Target to only get eggs, and I did my usual routine of $1 spot, clothes, then shoes. Upon my last stop in the shoe section I found such a treasure. The boots I have been wanting since they came out and were originally $35, were on sale for 30% off. I went to check them out and see how much their new price was when to my complete surprise, the price tag said $11.98! No way this, can’t be right. I checked for my size, which happened to be the next pair I grabbed, checked the tag on that pair, and there it was again $11.98. I had to get them! This was so meant to be! I mean, I’m practically making money by buying these, right?

Boots on sale here at Target!

Tragic Fashion- Bootie-Licious

I went into Target, my usual after work activity, in search of moon pies. Yes, moon pies. Tomorrow we are having a Redneck Pot-Luck at work and I was assigned moon pies. Anyways, upon walking into Target, I took up my usual route starting with the $1 section, then to the forbidden clothes. I know I should never walk through here yet I do 99% of the time. I picked up three different items, instantly thought of an outfit I can make out of it and the places I could wear it too, then put it down. You see, I am very good at this. Not putting the clothes back down, that’s just plain hard, no I’m good at visualizing an exact outfit, thus convincing myself to buy an article of clothing. It’s a pretty good talent I’d say because the outfit almost always comes out how I envisioned it. Again, thanks to my seven years in retail. This is why when my best friend wants a reason to buy something when she doesn’t really have one, she asks me. Well after creating several outfits and successfully putting them back, I walked to the shoe section. I don’t know why I do this to myself. This time, the shoes won the battle though. But really, how can you argue when you find shoes you have been looking for, and they are $8 off? It’s just not fair. So yes, I found my size laying on the floor (the last ones in my size! See, meant to be), tried them on, and was sold. I am FINALLY a proud owner of ankle booties with a small heel. I really have been looking for a cute pair that’s not that expensive, and now I have!
