Bringing Cacti to the Office

It was only a matter of time before I brought my love of cacti into my office wardrobe, I was just waiting until I found the perfect way. I had seen a couple cactus tops but they were all kind of pricey. Finally, thanks to a blogger I follow on insta, The Sister Studio, I found a cactus print button up from Old Navy that full price is $26.99 and I got it on sale for 40% off. Score!

Although I could wear this classic button up by itself will slacks, that just seemed a little boring. I have a yellow blazer I got from one of the $10 stores in downtown Palm Springs that I haven’t worn yet. I figured now that it is spring, it would be the perfect addition to my cactus outfit. It actually worked great together! The cactus print is pretty small and spread out so it wasn’t too loud with a bright yellow blazer. I just paired my navy slacks with it but really I could wear either my navy, black, or gray. On the weekend I am excited to try my button up with a pair of high waist denim shorts and sandals or wedges (well before it gets too hot to wear a three quarter length sleeve outside in the sun).

Happy Monday! Sorry I have been slacking on the work outfits post, I have just been doing so many fun things on the weekend! I will plan some more, promise!

Sweater & A-Line Combo

There was a skirt from Maison Jules at Macy’s that I had kind of been stalking. I looked at it a few times, tried it on once, and decided I would buy it if it was on sale, which it wasn’t, so I put it back. A few weeks later Macy’s was having one of their one day sales and the skirt fell under that sale. I put it in my online cart just to see. I had a coupon in my “Macy’s Wallet” for $15 off $40 or more (the skirt was $39.99 and the coup actually applied!) AND THEN I had $15 in Macy’s cash (some deal I got from a previous purchase) that expired the next day. In the end the skirt, which was originally $69.50, came out to like $12 with tax! Talk about a steal, obviously I bought it. It is a little longer than normal but perfect for work and I love the colors, navy and plum. During the black Friday sale (on the Wednesday before) all of Old Navy was 50% off and I had bought an off white sweater. I hadn’t thought about wearing it with the skirt until last night and it came out super cute! Luckily I have plum pointed flats with crossing ankle straps that went perfectly with the outfit, and a navy and purple statement necklace from Charming Charlie. This is a perfect outfit for the office that was actually pretty warm.

Navy Stripes and Everything Nice!

Yesterday I finally got to wear my other outfit I got as my “congratulations you got yourself a new job, you deserve this” purchase. I have been waiting to wear this one! Of course again it is from Maison Jules at Macy’s (I told you I was obsessed), but the pants are Old Navy. You may recognize this ruffle-hem top because I posted about the polkadot one on my first day of work. It was so cute I had to buy two. They are simple, girly, and comfy, and you can wear them with jeans too to be casual. The navy striped blazer is the most comfortable blazer I have ever worn! A lot of blazers, at least in my experience can be restricting, but this one is so stretchy it’s awesome. I was so comfortable all day which is great for the office. The pants are my new Pixie mid-rise ankle pants from Old Navy, these are so comfy too! I usually buy my ankle pants from Target but I think I actually like these better… shh don’t tell Target.

Lastly, I just can’t get over these flats, they just make such a statement I wear them every chance I get! They are plum, pointed, and have crossing ankle straps, basically the equation of perfection. If I haven’t mentioned before they are from Forever 21.

The Best Color Combo

I know I have been obsessed with Old Navy recently but I can’t help it! I just find the best deals and and some of the cutest clothes, especially basics. On my last shopping trip there in March (after my month of no shopping), I found this navy striped loose peplum tank and it was on sale for $8! (I also bought it in black) I had been waiting for the perfect way to wear this, so I decided white pants were the best pairing. Of course I didn’t have any, so back to Old Navy I went! I wanted to add some color to the outfit and I LOVE wearing coral with navy so what would be better than a coral necklace to add some pop? I had just bought a coral necklace from Charming Charlie because it was a color I didn’t have yet, and it is a good one to have for summer. I was excited when I finally put this outfit on and paired it all together. I added my chunky tan heels because they basically go with everything and I love them. You cannot go wrong with navy, white, and coral.

I hope you all had a good Tuesday!

Pattern Mixing

I saw a picture on Instagram the other day of a striped tee with a floral skirt. I became obsessed and wanted to create my own version. I already have a striped tee so all I needed was the skirt, so I went to my go to, Old Navy! After wandering around for quite some time I found this navy print skirt on the clearance rack for $8.48! What a steal! As I said I already have a striped tee, but I don’t have a striped tank. I am seriously so obsessed with stripes right now… So I bought a tank. I found this one on sale for $6! It’s a double scoop so the neck and the back both scoop down. It’s really light and super comfy. As I was walking to the front I passed this open cardigan. It’s a good color and the shorter sleeves are great for the warmer weather. I had my two patterns so I figured a solid sweater layered on top would really tie the whole outfit together. For the finishing touches I added my pendant tassel necklace from Charming Charlie and my tan chunky heels from G Stage. They have to be the most comfortable heels I’ve ever worn.

Boyfriends

I have been really obsessed with boyfriend jeans lately and also boyfriend shorts. My boyfriend asked me why they are called that and I said, “because it is supposed to be like I am wearing my boyfriend’s jeans.” He looked at me and said with a straight face, “I would never wear those.” Whatever, he doesn’t know anything! I just love how comfortable they are. They are also good for those days that you aren’t feeling too good about yourself and you do not want to wear anything tight.

The last time I was at Old Navy I came across a boyfriend shirt. I was excited because it was a really cute button up with a subtle pattern. I had a coupon so I decided to try it out. It turns out I really liked it! The first time I wore it was with skinny jeans, booties, and a statement necklace. This time I tried it more casual with boyfriend shorts, sandals, and open with a lace bralette instead of a necklace. This will be quite a versatile top, I have already worn it with three different outfits. I am excited to see what else I get out of it, especially since it is thin and light enough to wear on warmer days.

Fringe on Fringe!

So as we all know fringe is pretty popular right now. These taupe fringe Steve Madden booties are my absolute favorite. I surprised myself with how much I have worn them since I bought them in November. I love how the fringe just adds a little extra to outfits. Last month I was browsing Old Navy online (like I shouldn’t have been) and came across a loose tee with fringe trim going across it in three rows. They had a gray with cream fringe and a cream with cream fringe, that is the one I wanted the “Creme de la Creme”. I went into Old Navy and looked every where for this top and I couldn’t find it! So I did what I hated when I worked in retail, I showed an associate the picture and asked if they had anymore! Ugh I know so shameful, but the girl said she knew where it was! Even better, it was on clearance for $7.49!! It was so meant to be. So of course I bought it. It is perfect for a casual and effortless outfit that is still super cute. Hope you like it! Go fringe!
