Weekly Style Roundup

This week’s style roundup features one look. Yes folks, that’s right! But this one look was fire!
This week we were blessed with some really good weather here in California, and by good I mean sun lol. While the days were cold, the sun was nice treat! This particular day began bright and sunny and I don’t know about you but there’s something magical about the sun, it puts me in a great mood!

The outfit…
I mean who said short shorts were just for winter? I decided to pair these stretchy H&M jean shorts ($14) with a Forever21 ribbed tank ($7), thrifted oversized mustard colored blazer (less than $4) from Savers, distressed tights and these spectacular thigh high boots ($72 splurge item) from ASOS!

I absolutely loved this look. The way I paired these shorts is a perfect way to integrate summer pieces into the winter. It’s all about layering! You don’t have to pack everything away, if you don’t want to. Those shorts, mini skirts, slip dresses and any other summer pieces can be worn in the winter.
Do you wear summer pieces in the winter?
That’s a wrap on this week’s look! Remember to keep it cute, comfortable and most important, keep it affordable!

Weekly Style Roundup

This week I’m giving you two very different looks! Since incorporating fashion into the blog, I’ve discovered so much about my style. I can say that I am extremely versatile and most definitely adventurous. I can be seen in sweats one day, and a pair of leather pants the next. That’s the beautiful thing about fashion, you make the rules!

Now let’s get into these looks!

Look Number 1. During the holidays I was in H&M (no surprise there) and while in the clearance section I came across this beautiful vintage looking green dress. I was immediately drawn to it and knew I had to have it! I found one left in my size…coincidence? I think not! The fact that it was marked down, just an added bonus. I decided to pair the dress with a pair of block heeled boots, and my beauty supply fave turban. The dress, $20.99. The boots are from ASOS and were $40.50. I’m definitely getting my money’s worth because of the versatility. I’ve worn them with so many things.

Look Number 2. Loved this look! This entire look is from Forever 21 minus the heels, those are from JustFab. The moto jacket I’ve had forever and quite honestly, it’s probably tired of being worn. This jacket pairs well with everything! Slacks, jeans, sweats… The pants and the turtleneck were part of the 50% off the whole store sale. Yes, you heard that right, 50% OFF THE ENTIRE STORE! Y’all I almost lost my entire mind. The pants are a cargo jogger. Very decent material and gives the snatched waist effect. The turtleneck is a staple in my wardrobe. This is a ribbed turtleneck with a sweater like material. As a kid I hated turtlenecks because I always felt like I was choking lol. My, have I grown! The pants, $15. The turtleneck, $7. Unfortunately, for this look I don’t have links. I scanned the items, but nothing came up. If I’m able to find the items, I’ll link them at a later time!

Until next time keep it cute, comfortable and most importantly, affordable!

Weekly Style Update – Week of 9/9 & 9/16

You’re probably wondering where the Weekly Style Updates have been…atleast I hope you’re wondering 😆. This post features two weeks and three looks. Why you ask? Because I had a minor hiccup with my health, but all is well! Now let’s get into these looks!

Look Number 1: A little black faux leather top and one of my favorite pair of distressed jeans! The entire ensemble minus the shoes cam from Target. The top is from Target’s WhoWhatWear collection and let me just say, the collection is great! If you’re looking for pieces in store, and you live in the Bay Area, head over to Target in Walnut Creek Ygnacio Valley location. The top $23.09 on sale (30%) off. The jeans were purchased a while back, also from Target. Those cute leopard print scrappy heels are from Forever 21 and I love them. Grand Total: $23.09

 

Look Number 2: Distressed Mom Jeans, Low cut tank and an amazing boyfriend blazer. I didn’t know how I felt about this combo at first, but it came together nicely. I must say, I love these jeans! I purchased them at Forever 21. I was never a fan of Mom Jeans because a lot of them give you pancake butt. These are NOT those mom jeans. Let’s pause and talk about these platform sandals? I love a good platform. They are by far the most comfortable heels to wear. Don’t be fooled by my pics, heels are reserved for affordable looks of the day. Unfortunately I don’t have pricing information on all of these items, but the jeans, blazer and headband were purchased from Forever 21. The shoes are from JustFab and the tank which was $8.99 is from Marshall’s.

Look Number 3: Last but definitely not least! In this look I’m giving you jean on jean 90’s vibe! I love a good jean jacket, and this one delivers. Not only is it oversized and color blocked, it’s thick and warm. This jacket is from Target’s Wild Fable line. Another one one Target got right! This line is current and hip…do people still say hip? Don’t judge me 😂. I paired the jacket with a baggy dark pair of high-waisted mom jeans from Forever 21, white turtle neck and Fila tennis shoes. Who knew Fila would make a comeback?!? Jacket is from Target:  $32. Jeans are from Forever 21 : $27.90. Turtleneck is from Charlotte Russe: $6 and the awesome shoes were a gift from my amazing daughter. Grand Total: $65.90

 

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

Weekly Style Roundup – Week of 9/2

IMG_6674

This week was a mix of this and that! A bit of dressy, business casual and grunge!

Look Number 1 is a beautiful mustard colored jumpsuit. I found this amazing piece at Target! Yes folks, the same Target you go to for toothpaste and toilet paper and leave with $150 worth of everything but toothpaste and toilet paper.  Let’s talk about Target’s fashion for a moment. I’ve always been a fan, and over the years their fashion game has evolved. They now have several amazing collections. Wild Fable, Who What Wear and Target 20 to name a few. This jumpsuit is from their Wild Fable collection. Not only is it on trend and great quality, it’s also affordable! Okay, now before I share, let me gather myself…Target landed in my comments asking me if it would be okay if they shared my look on their site! Oh but wait, this isn’t the first time. Ya’ll I was so excited…now, I’m currently manifesting a paid brand deal. This jumpsuit is super comfortable and feels like you’re wearing your favorite pair of pj’s. The gold strappy shoes are from my mama’s closet, they were perfect for this look! Price/Grand Total $30.

 

Look Number 2 I’m calling, “a little bit of grunge”. This outfit, also purchased from Target. Hat and shoes are from H&M. I am so longing for Fall that all three of these looks were shot in 90 degree weather. This look features my favorite pair of distressed jeans and a flannel in my favorite color. I was a bit unsure of this outfit, but I posted it anyway. The jeans are more of a jegging material which I love! I am not a huge fan of jeans with no stretch. The shirt it waist length and a really heavy material so it’s perfect for the Fall/Winter. The boots, I love love love. They are so cute and they are pretty comfortable. The hat, purchased on a whim from H&M and I’ve worn it with many outfits. Shirt $10.98. Jeans $15. Grant Total: $25.98.

Look Number 3 I absolutely love a good blazer moment! I found this particular blazer in Forever 21 and it was the only one in the store. I tried it on and it was a perfect fit. I paired it with a black turtleneck from Target and the jeans are from ASOS. The shoes are from JustFab. This look is perfect for dress down Fridays in the office. Blazer $29.90. Turtleneck $6.98. Jeans $20. Belt $7.99. Grand Total: $64.87.

 

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

IMG_5646

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!

This Week the focus is statement graphic tees. I love when you can make a statement and make it fashion!

This look was cute and comfortable. The jacket came from Forever 21 purchased a while back so I don’t remember the price. The skirt is from Ross and it was $10.99.

This jacket is part of Target’s Wild Fable collection. The shoes are the same ones from look #1 and are from JustFab $14.99. Grand Total: $72.96. This entire look is a bit more than I’d normally spend, but I will get multiple wears out of every piece…as you can see by the shoes!

 

Look Number 3, wrapped up the week with a tee titled,”Nah”. I paired this graphic tee with one of my favorite pair of mom jeans! The blue is electric and the fit is amazing!
