I’m always on the hunt for a good fashion deal. I can’t help it, I love clothes (especially fancy ones like this Vera Wang tunic) but I don’t love paying for them. Who does? So I shop the sales and spend a lot of time online window shopping for items before I decide which ones to buy. I like to make sure something is worth the investment before I buy it, although I definitely make spontaneous purchases every now and then. I usually buy my designer pieces at discounts from Gilt but I’ve recently discovered TheRealReal and now I’m addicted!
I love fun basics that you can throw together to create a super cute outfit in almost no time. This black and white striped tunic has been one of my favorites the last few months and I’ve been wearing plenty of light layers with it as the weather has gotten warmer. This gray sweater is perfect over tunics and I’ve been living in these crazy-soft skinny jeans. Add some suede boots and a sparkly statement necklace and I’m good to go!
While I love blacks and grays, every now and then I want something a little more earthy feeling. Dark brown and cream are a great alternative and I love how they look with lots of gold jewelry. This dark brown leather jacket has been a staple in my closet for years (and I have to admit, it’s seen better days and I really need to get a new one) and I love how it looks with these lighter brown leather boots.
This Shoshanna print dress is one of my favorite dresses to wear because it has so many different styling options! The print contains so many colors (blacks, browns, blues, pinks, yellows, greens) that you would think it would be difficult to find things to match but it’s actually the opposite. It’s so easy to add different layers and accessories and I’ve found that as long as I pair this dress with colors that are in the print, it works. I’ve worn it with lots of black or brown for an outfit that really lets the print stand out but typically I wear it with a little bit of everything. I just think it’s more fun! I wear this dress a lot in the fall and winter as it’s perfect for layers but it also works on its own with just a light sweater if it’s warmer out.
It has been uncharacteristically rainy here all week. Typically it rains for a while here and then stops but this week has been nothing but rain with a few breaks in between. It’s the kind of weather that makes me want to pull out cozy sweaters and drink hot chocolate, which is exactly what I’ve been doing. Usually I wouldn’t be this happy about the rain but it’s given me a chance to use my cute striped umbrella!
