Cheap Thrills

2 Nov

Lately, more so than usual, I have been finding great deals on exceptional pieces. Some items are on sale, while others are well priced to begin with. I have always believed that looking amazing on a daily basis does NOT have to cost a fortune and can be done on any budget. I never discount (no pun intended) sale racks and lower price point retailers. Below are pieces that I found to be pretty remarkable for the price!

Ladylike Fall

27 Sep

One of the many reasons I am excited that Fall is here, is being able to pair Long Sleeve dresses with booties or pumps. I think there is a sweet sexiness to the Long Sleeve dress with shorter hem line. It is a little revealing, but not over the top, creating a very ladylike aesthetic. Complimenting this natural pairing would be: tights, depending on the weather, a great clutch and fitting chunky accessories. Adding these pieces would complete the composition of one classy look.

Chambray on the Cape.

31 Aug

The weather while on vacation last week in Cape Cod, as I mentioned here, was pretty ideal. The days were sunny, warm and the humidity very low. The nights were a bit cooler, so I took advantage of this weather by wearing some Fall Transitional pieces. This chambray shirt is a recent purchase and I can already tell it is will be on heavy rotation. It has a boyfriend cut, allowing for a more relaxed and easy going wear. Pairing it with red cords and super comfortable wedges, made for one easy to wear outfit for one awesome night out!

Summer Ease

15 Jun

Every Season inevitably has those pieces that you turn to for ease, reliability, and sheer comfort. So far this summer I have been going for neutrals, statement piece jewelry and maxi skirts/dresses. I have really repeating these items so frequently, I may have to hide them somewhere and bring them back out in a month or so. Then it will be fun all over again to wear them! Until I can find a good hiding place then I will just keep on wearing them, enough to have my husband realize that I am repeating outfits!
