Fall Outfits

Fall is definitely here and I’m full embracing the colors and fabrics.  I do feel that I can better use my budget by picking things out myself and finding good deals.  Stitch Fix has high prices if you’re not keeping all 5 items and I just haven’t been happy with the picks lately.  I’m also not loving any of the chosen items for the upcoming Golden Tote and think I’ll skip it.

I Love Your Dress” Dress from Modcloth 

I Love Your Dress from Modcloth

Plum and mustard is my favorite fall combo of colors.  The dress is a soft knit and I’ve seen a lot of people get this dress from Stitch Fix.  Since I wasn’t getting what I asked for I just went directly through ModCloth.

Dress from Target

target dress

Target has some really cute fall stuff right now.  I found this dress along with a few sweaters that I picked up last week.  I paired this with old grey boots and the faux leather jacket I got from my last stitch fix.

Boho Top from Target

I also picked up this rust colored bohemian style top from Target.  Very soft and flowy.

Old Navy Cap Sleeve Sheath Dress

Again, loving the combo with mustard in the fall.  This dress is quite flattering and I got it for only $10 with sales and rewards!

ModCloth – Pretty Package Dress in Spanish Tile

Love the colors of this one too.  The cowl neck top is flattering for a pear shaped body.

Loft Dress

Loft burgundy dress

This is one of my favorite new fall dresses.  It’s a silk fabric and the color is so rich.  Paired with a cardigan from Loft.

Loft Orange Skirt

The color of this is much nicer in person than on the website.  It’s a deep orange.  The silky fabric is nice and flowy and I paired it with a knit military style jacket from Old Navy.

Old Navy Sweater

This is an old navy sweater, paired with an older scarf I got from a PopSugar Must Have box, a watch from Charming Charlie, and the flats are Crocs.

Loft Silk Dress

LOVE this dress.  The fabric, the pattern, everything.  I can see me wearing it in winter with black tights.

Loft Dress

This dress is fun for work and felt very office appropriate.  Looks a little shorter here than it felt on.

Work Capris and a red sweater

Kohls Capris

I got these curvy Capris from Elle at Kohls last year and was so happy to find curvy fit pants that were cute.  I paired them with this red sweater from Banana Republic.

Rocking Shoes from DSW

Shoes from DSW

The best part of this outfit is the shoes.  They are a nice low heel and I love the details.  The jacket is older and the red shell is from Golden Tote as a surprise item.  Jeans from Old Navy.  I’m loving the new curvy skinny jeans, after I washed these they were a bit more fitted.



Early Summer Outfits

Here are a few of the early summer outfits I’ve been wearing.

Banana Republic Floral Tank

I love this silk floral tank from Banana Republic and paired it with a cobalt blue cardigan and my dark skinny cropped jeans.

Hot Pink Blouse

I was feeling a little “Rocker Chic” with this blouse from Target.  I like the way it overlapped and the bright pop of color.

Yellow Tee and Chevron Scarf

This outfit was actually inspired from something I saw on Pinterest with a basic yellow tee and a black and white chevron scarf.  I had to add the grey military style jacket because the weather was a bit cool that day.

Full Vintage Style Skirt

I got this Roses are Radiant skirt on sale from ModCloth and felt so feminine in it.  I love the red envelope tee from OldNavy that I paired with it.  All day I was twirling slightly and loving the feel of the long skirt.

Winter Outfit Ideas

I’ve been really bad about posting what I’ve been wearing lately, so here are a few things I wore in December.

Brocade SkirtI took this picture on our “Snow Day” we had here a few weeks ago.  We only got around an inch, but everyone was freaking out and all the schools were closed.  Most of my co-workers flaked out and didn’t show up, but being from the Midwest originally I didn’t really mind and went in anyway.  Usually the biggest threat when it snows here is other inexperienced drivers, but I just watch out for them.  The skirt is from Ann Taylor Loft, and the blouse is from Old Navy.

cropped jacketThe thing I loved the most about this outfit was the shoes.  I love those sparkly flats!  The jacket was from Ann Taylor Loft, and the tee was from JCrew.

hankerchief hem dressThis is one of my favorite dresses and I’ve had it for a few years.  I love the asymmetrical hem and the pattern.  It’s also a nice soft material and great for the winter time.  We were having some pretty chilly weather this December so this kept me warm with the tights and boots.

mustard sweater and blue shoes

This is one of my favorite color combos with mustard and black and white.  The top is from Anthropologie, and the sweater is from LOFT.  I also really love these flats I got at DSW.  Comfy and electric blue.winter sweater

I got this sweater from Piperlime last winter, and like it paired with these eggplant skinny jeans and these awesome skull print rhinestone studded flats.Blanket Sweater

I wore this blanket sweater on one of our cooler days here and was nice and toasty!  I think I got this from ModCloth.Plaid skirtI also really love this skirt.  It’s a nice long wool skirt that keeps me toasty and I paired it with this rust colored sweater from Target.  The skirt was from ModCloth.

Sunny End to the Week

It looks like we may have one more day of sun before the clouds and gloom take over again for the next 9 months or so.  At least that’s what the weather forecasters say, so far I only see clouds and grey.  Living in the Pacific Northwest feels a little bit like living in the Game of Thrones landscape where we all dread the coming dark season.  “The Winter is Coming…”

I was able to get one last sunny outfit in last week with this mustard colored skirt from ModCloth and an older embellished Tee from JCrew and cardigan.

Week of Polka Dots Comes to an End

I was almost able to finish out my week of polka dots, but ran out of viable options after Thursday.  This was the new red with white polka dot dress I wore on Thursday.  Red with white polka dots, being my second favorite pattern right after navy with white.

Crazy for polka dots

Whenever I see an item of clothing that has polka dots on it, I am tempted to immediately snatch it up, regardless of size or shape.  If it happens to be navy with white polka dots, I think I go a little crazy.  I don’t know why or what from my childhood may have influenced my love of these little dots, but it is my favorite pattern hands down.  (Even my wallet sports a nice tan with black polka dots pattern.)

When I tried on this navy polka dot top from Modcloth last night, I knew I had to wear it the very next day.  Not only was the pattern lovely, but the cut is a nice peplum shape and the fabric drapes nicely.  I paired it with a wide brown leather belt, my white linen blazer from Nordstrom, some cute red sandals and voila!  Perfect outfit to beat the Monday blues.   Did it make my day a little more awesome?  I’d like to think so.
