Girly Dress

I love wearing dresses. Not only are they cute but they are just so easy. I’m pretty sure I’ve said this before but it’s a whole outfit in one piece of clothing. Anything you add to it just enhances it. I found this purple floral dress at Target and I was so surprised. The style and print are so cute, their Xhilaration brand has really been stepping up their style and have come out with a lot of cute new dresses. I love how girly this one makes me feel. 

Although this dress does perfectly well on its own, for work purposes I added a striped white and navy blazer. The pattern doesn’t match but I have been so into that lately, ESPECIALLY stripes and floral prints. It just works. I also loved the whole color scheme: navy, purple, and white. As for shoes, instead of pairing my perfectly matching navy pumps, I tried nude heels and it worked! I took a chance with these ones as the heel is a nude snakeskin but the color is subtle enough to blend. When I wore this outfit out I ended up wearing a chunky nude sandal heel by Steve Madden. 

This dress can quickly be changed from work to a more casual/going out outfit. I ditched the blazer and heels and added a blue statement necklace and over the knee taupe boots. So. Perfect. This definitely might be a holiday party combo.

The Perfect Plaid Dress

Happy Saturday everyone! I don’t know about you but I am so happy it’s the weekend, this week was kind of awful. I started getting sick last weekend so I couldn’t get all my blog pictures done that I wanted but I did manager to get one. This off white and black plaid fit and flare dress from Maison Jules is pure perfection. It is so flattering on, I felt so good. I basically stalked this dress until it went on sale. I paired it with my new over the knee boots by DV for Target and of course over the knee socks. I loved it so much I can’t wait to wear it again! Such a simple concept can make you feel so good, a dress, boots, and socks. It is a great winter office look or you can even add black or brown booties or heels to dress it up more for work. The over the knew boots  are great for a more casual look.

New Blouse! 

Last week at work was spirit week so I didn’t get a chance to wear my new blouse until today. It’s so dainty and girly, I love it! It can also be worn with a lot of different bottoms, causal or dressy. I got it at Macy’s when I got the olive ankle slacks I posted last week, which I’m also wearing here. This outfit was so simple yet so cute. I went to Starbucks on the way to work and this older man told me how well I color coordinated because my purse matched! It was such a funny compliment to me but still nice.

Hope you had a happy Monday!

Fall is Coming!

The countdown to Fall has been on and we finally have 2 days left! For those of you who don’t know, mark your calendars because the first day of Fall is this Thursday, September 22nd! Everyone should be basic this day and get a Pumpkin Spice Latte to celebrate, that’s my plan and you can bet I already have my outfit picked out too. Fall is my favorite season (clearly). Not just for the cooler weather and the layering, and warmer colors, but it just gives me this feeling. I’m sure you know what I mean, like when you walk in a store that smells like cinnamon. You feel like you should be by your Christmas tree in fuzzy socks, drinking hot chocolate with way too many marshmallows. It’s just a warm, happy feeling, I can’t wait.

The fall styles have been out and I’m starting to jump right into them like a pile of leaves. Looking at my closet I feel like majority of my clothes are Fall colors and I’ve been trying to wait to wear them, but now I can! This weekend I stopped by Macy’s (even though I shouldn’t have) because they were having their VIP sale. Of course I went to my fav. Maison Jules. The line really has the best work clothes that are trendy and not terribly expensive. The best part is there is almost always something on sale AND you can use your Macy’s coups. on this line. I found a pair of olive ankle slacks that were already on sale for 40% off making them $29.99 and they had an additional 25% off, AND THEN the cashier had another coupon she used for me which made them even cheaper! I think they came out to $20 or just below when full price they should have been $50. I love sales! I got this polkadot top as well. Not as good of a deal as the pants but still 25% off plus the cashier’s coupon. It’s just so cute I couldn’t pass it up, and it’s a good quality. Going through my closet I’m trying to get rid of my old stuff that was just cheapy, like the million chiffon button ups I have but never wear because they are too thin. I’m trying to slowly replace them with better quality pieces.

Lastly, did you see my shoes?! I am so in love and what’s better is that they are so comfortable! My bfffff and I had been talking about this style, then Friday night I went out with my other best friend for her sister’s 21st birthday and she had a pair like these but a different color. I became obsessed all night that I went and found them on Saturday afternoon. I found them at G Stage for $28.99. I’ve had them since Saturday and have already worn them with 2 outfits, soon to be 3 towards the end of the week.

First Day Look

Today was my first day at my new job! I am now a Branch Facilities Coordinator at New American Funding. I was so excited/nervous this morning! Orientation was really cool though and actually fun. It also helps that one of my best friends works there too, in another department but we still get to have lunch together.

So the dress code here is business casual with casual Fridays. For the first day I wanted to wear something that was not too dressy, but not too casual either. I wanted to gauge  how everyone else dressed in the office. It turned out my outfit was perfect, just enough dressed up. I chose my ankle slacks from Target (my favorite work pants), and my new loose white and black polkadot ruffle-hem top from Maison Jules at Macy’s. To go over my top I picked my new mustard cardigan from Target, I LOVE pairing mustard over black and white. For shoes I knew I wanted to wear flats, and although it may sound weird to some I went with the leopard pointed toe flats from Target. I know polkadots and leopard print doesn’t sound like it goes together but it worked really well! The leopard print went with the color scheme of black and mustard.

…See!

Best. Deal. Ever. 

Browsing Instagram the other night I noticed one of the bloggers I follow had on super cute heels. Going to her blog to research them I found that they were Steve Madden. Perfect! Steve Madden is my favorite. I looked on Macy’s and found them right away. Oh, what do you know, Macy’s was (and still is until after today) having their VIP 25% off sale. The heels, which are the CARRSON, are $99 so with the VIP that’s about $25 off right there. I also remembered I still had $68 in rewards from Macy’s thanks for sharing program on a gift card. Deducted that. At check out it asked if I wanted to use my $9.60 in Plenti points, SURE! Oh let’s see, pick up in store to save $10 on shipping. What’s my total now… $2.06!!!!! I got $99 heels for $2.06! The best deal I could probably have ever gotten. Please see how cute and worth it they are! 

  
I can’t wait to wear them!

Blanket Scarf, Shift Dress, Over the Knee Boots, OH MY!

This outfit I have been waiting to wear forEVER! Even before I bought all the pieces I was still anticipating wearing it. I saw something similar on Pinterest and was so determined to make it my own! Looking on Pinterest, I pinned this 14 weeks ago! That is how determined I was!


When I have an outfit in mind, it tends to just fall into place. I know what I want so I will not settle for something less, so if it takes me a little longer to find it then it is all worth it for it to be perfect. I finally found the right dress when I was in Old Navy looking for a dress for Thanksgiving. The dress in the picture is more of a bodycon, but I wanted something looser. I found the perfect textured, black shift dress with three-quarter length sleeves, and was loose yet somewhat fitted. The kind of fitted where when you walked it would form to your body rather than flow. (It was also 40% so what other convincing did I need).

Next I got the boots. I have been seeing these over the knee boots all over Instagram and I wanted them! My go to is Macy’s because I have a Macy’s card (seriously so dangerous). I looked up Steve Madden and there they were, the GORGEOUS, but only black! I wanted the gray I kept seeing. I tell you I stalked the Macy’s website almost everyday. Finally when I checked for like the 50th time, they had another color! The picture looked gray but the description said taupe. BUT THEY ONLY HAD SIZE 9! Someone must have returned them. I didn’t give up though, I kept stalking. Finally they had all the sizes, yet the picture still showed gray but the description said taupe. I knew they were different because I did my research on the Steve Madden website, fashion is serious, some research required (lol!). I ordered them anyways, and if they came in and were actually taupe and I didn’t like them, then I could return them. Again, these were on sale too or I probably would not have bought them. Well they came in and were the perfect color, I was actually glad they were not gray because the tone of taupe they are can go with pretty much anything!

Lastly the blanket scarf. I remember Audree from Simply Audree Kate, said last year I think that she got one from Amazon. I searched and found one for $7! It kind of took awhile to come in but once it did, my outfit was complete! I just needed a place to wear it, when the perfect opportunity came, my roomie’s birthday (which is actually today- Happy Birthday!) but we went to brunch yesterday at the Saddle Ranch in Orange. It was a hit! Check it out…

Statements and Stripes

This navy skirt from Maison Jules is turning into one of my favorite pieces. This is my third outfit with it! I’ve gone from solid, to polka dots, and now to stripes. I paired it with a three quarter length white and navy striped top, white strappy sandals, and topped it off with a purple gem statement necklace with a couple navy stones to tie it in. I love this outfit, so easy and so comfy. 

Ps- my boyfriend asked me why I was dressed like a flight attendant.

•Polka • Dots•

I was pretty excited to wear today’s outfit. I found another sale while I was at Macy’s to only pay my bill, and you guessed it, another Maison Jules find. There were items already on sale and then they were having their VIP sale as well, SO this completely adorable white top with navy and pink polka dots was originally $59.90, was on sale for 25% off then I got 20% off for the VIP sale and it came out to $35.94! I wanted it because not only does it go great with my navy skirt I posted about awhile go from Maison Jules, but it will also look cute with jeans and with a blazer when it starts to get cold. It is also totally work appropriate. 

Like I said I paired my top with my navy pencil-ish skirt and topped it off with a small navy statement necklace. The necklace was kind of super matchy but it worked. I wasn’t totally sure on what shoes to wear so I added a brown leather belt so that I could wear my brown leather sandal wedges from Madden Girl. This way the outfit was dressy but not super dressy. After all no one really dresses up at work except for myself and the boss lady, so when I wear something pretty nice people ask me why, I mean it is a construction company. “Why are you dressed up?” “Uh, for work?” I don’t need a reason, I just like to look nice. Remember? You look good, you feel good. Anyways check it out! And stay tuned for the other item I got on sale along with this top! (Hopefully tomorrow it will debut!)

Deals and Steals

Last night on Instagram Maison Jules posted a picture of this dress…  

 

I instantly tagged my bffffff in it because it’s obviously adorable. I looked it up on Macy’s and it was on sale for $49.99, originally $69.50. Not all that bad. While I was looking for the dress I also came across this vest and I have been on the search for this exact piece… 

 

This was also on sale for $49.99, originally $69.50.  I added them both to my cart because that’s just what I do, I torture myself because I knew I wasn’t going to buy them, and OF COURSE you need to spend $100 to get free shipping and what did I have in my cart, $100. BUT NO! I was good. 

Well like always when I have my eyes on something I really want or have been looking for I obsess over it (this means you really want it and you can envision all the different ways to wear it- generally to me it means it’s a good buy) I have these shopaholic instincts. Well at work while taking a quick break I look up the items again on Macy’s just to see, when a miracle happened. Some act of fate mixed with fashion destiny that these two items came together just for me! The dress was now on sale for $17.99 and the vest $37.99! WHAT?! It’s one of those Macy’s One Day Sales (that lasts for two days but whatever). I go to my Macy’s app on my phone to order them right then and there since my info is saved on my phone. The first thing I thought of was now I had to pay shipping and was hoping it wasn’t too much. I added the two to my cart and went to check out. Looking at the total I noticed I qualified for FREE SHIPPING! Apparently for the One Day Sale (again it’s actually two days so I don’t know why they just don’t call it a two day sale, it doesn’t make it less exclusive) you only need to spend $50 to qualify for free shipping and I was spending $55! Altogether with tax it was $60.46. If the stars didn’t align for this purchase then I don’t know what happened but I got both items I wanted for less than the price of one and it’s getting shipped to my place… WINNING!  

You can check out Maison Jules at Macy’s riiiiiight HERE! (It’s one of my favorites if you haven’t started to gather that)
