Weekly Style Roundup

This week I decided to show a little skin! Who remembers the saying, “leave a little to the imagination”? That’s what I was going for with this week’s looks!

Look Number 1 was definitely rich in color with the lime green cropped hoodie and the lime green puff coat. I decided to show a little midsection since the sun decided to pay us a visit. The puff coat protected me from the cold, because let me tell you, it was definitely cold (Cali cold 😆)! The cropped hoodie came from Ross Dress For Less and it was only $6.99. It’s actually a pretty soft material and quite warm for the price. You can’t beat that! If you’re not a Ross shopper, you should be. You can definitely find some gems in there.

The puff jacket is from ASOS and it was on clearance for $29.99. This is a perfect Cali coat. Not too hot and not too cold. The pants are from Zumiez and they were $29.95. I absolutely love these pants. The quality is impeccable! Very well constructed and thick material.

Look Number 2 I’m calling schoolgirl inspired. This super cute little jean jumper is from H&M and if you’re a regular reader, then you know how I feel about H&M. When I saw the jumper in store I knew I had to have it. I usually steer clear of short items like this because my butt usually makes them ride up, but the fit on this was perfect! It’s a stretchy material that hugs in all the right places with the added bonus of the belt that snatches in the waist! The cost, only $24.99.

Now, let’s discuss these super comfy and super sexy thigh high boots! Saw them on ASOS and knew I had to have them. I will say, it was a bit of a splurge for me coming in at over $70 when I bought them. That was a definite stretch for me, but I regret nothing! These boots are amazing!

That’s a wrap on this week’s looks! Remember to keep it cute, comfy and most importantly, keep it affordable!

Weekly Style Roundup – Week Of 8/26

This week features two looks! 

Look Number 1. Guess who got their first pair of Fashion Nova jeans???? Yep, me. Now, I’ve heard so much about this brand and how their jeans are amazing for curvy girls. I wanted to see what the hype was all about. Yes I know I’m late to the party, but hey. While school clothes shopping for my children, I decided to grab a pair. I ordered a size 9. When it comes to jeans, most times they fit in the hips and thigh areas but not the waist which creates that annoying gapping in the back. I can’t tell you how many belts I’ve ruined from that very problem. Okay, let’s get into the fit. I purchased the Stir It Up Ankle Jeans – Light Blue Wash. Price, $24.99. My thoughts, they were okay. I was expecting this amazing cinching of the waist and snug fit in the thighs. Unfortunately, the pair I purchased had gapping in the back. Thankfully, my shirt was long enough to cover it. I will probably purchase another pair before I make a final decision. So stay tuned, another pair will be featured in an upcoming Weekly Style Roundup. Okay real quick, the top is so cute. It’s sweater material and it’s definitely affordable. When I saw it I loved it! It was simple, but the exaggerated sleeves takes it to the next level. Top – Forever 21 $14.90. Jeans – Fashion Nova $24.99. Grand Total: $39.89

 

 

Look Number 2. pLeather & Lace! Ooohhh whew, I loved this look. Let me share that when I shot this look it was 90 degrees. I literally had to peel the pants off after we were finished taking pictures, and shower. I’m hoping  that if I keep shooting Fall looks it will call it forth! It’s the beginning of September and we’re still in the 90’s. None the less, I call this look Grown & Sexy. The leggings are from Target. Real quick, can we talk about Target’s fashion? The new Fall pieces from WhoWhatWear!!!! OMG I fell in love and was almost tempted to start a go-fund me account. Whew, I was gone for a second…I’m back. The leggings $16. The lace top, oh so cute and can be worn during Fall with a tank top underneath. The top – $19.99. Grand Total: $35.99

 

That’s a wrap on this week’s look! Until next time, keep it cute, comfortable and most important, affordable! Come back next week for all new looks!

Weekly Style Roundup – Week of 8/12

This Week was all about sun dresses and things I found in the closet but haven’t worn in ages! We have been experiencing some extreme temps in the bay! The week of the 12th brought 90+ degree temps and attitudes because it was hot as hell. These dresses were perfect for the weather!

Look Number 1 featured a little white frock purchased from Old Navy for $7. Queue Erykah Badu’s “Cleva”…”My dress ain’t cost nothin’ but seven dollar, but I made it fly” Paired the dress with a leopard print strappy heel from Forever 21 $24.90. The shades which I love were from H&M $12.99. Grand Total for this Look was $44.89.

Look Number 2, a floral dress. What can I say about this dress? I don’t really like it. Here is the thing, I purchased this dress years ago from Target and I’m going to believe I liked it then lol. This week I tried to focus on things I had in my closet and this is one of them. Why don’t I like it? It has a hint of matronly to me. None the less, the dress is being donated. Dress $7.48. Shoes purchased from Forever 21 $24.90. Grand Total for this look $32.38.

Look Number 3 is a little bohemian dress. I love this dress, not just because of the price but because of the style. It’s short but not too short and the colors are amazing. Dress is from Marshall’s and it was $7. Shoes from JustFab and they were $14. Grand Total: $21.

That’s a wrap on this week’s look! Until next time, keep it cute, comfortable and most important, affordable! See you next week!
