Neutral Sunday Best

July 3, 2016

I love, love, love nude and cream together.  It’s one of my favorite color combos. Throw in a gold watch or bracelet somewhere in there and I’m happy! It’s as classic as navy/cream black and white, gray and pink, etc.

I got this beautiful cream and pleated midi skirt from Downeast Basics a little while ago and I’ve fallen in love with it because it was cheap, is modest and is super duper comfortable. Click Here to see the skirt.  At $29.99, I couldn’t resist the soft and flowy-ness of this beauty.  It makes me feel fancy without having to be uncomfortable.

I’m wearing my favorite nude pumps that I found on clearance at Marshalls for $25.00 and get this, they are real leather!  For under $100? Crazy town. The fashion gods smiled on me that day; I can run a marathon in these babies too.  Can I say that even though I’ve never ran a marathon? Eh, who cares? Anyway back to shoes,…they stay put, don’t squish your toes (too much) and are the perfect height.  I found them for you online. Click Here.  However, they were hard to find in varied sizes.  These particular ones are Nine West and run about $40-$60 online (very reasonable) but I did see a couple good eBay listings for less. This style of pump is so incredibly comfortable and stylish to boot. They have a chunky, broad strap that wraps around the ankle that keeps them fitted nicely to your foot. I linked a few other similar ones that are equally as stylish and beautiful for you below. These are a staple that you need to have in your shoe collection.

As for the blouse, I believe I got it at Nordstrom Rack but it was so long ago, I don’t remember when it was or what I paid but knowing myself, I know it wasn’t more than $50.  I love the little button details on it and that it feels expensive but you and I both know it’s not. These kind of midi skirts look best with a tucked in top.

The earrings are an old purchase from Forever 21 for dirt cheap because I am a sucker for anything with bows on them.  Click here to see earrings from Kohl’s.  They are just so feminine and cute! Thanks to my Tater Tot for being my photographer.

Is that silk? Uhhhhh…not quite.

April 11, 2016


I don’t consider myself super on trend or even a ‘fashionista’ for that matter but I do love a good deal, trying to pull off different styles and I’m a woman so you know I LOVE my shoes, handbags, and accessories. I scored this fabulous (the perfect adjective for this beauty) blouse at Forever 21. I don’t shop there too often but I have to admit I have found some pretty cute and ridiculously cheap things there.  It’s kind of annoying to fish through all the ugly stuff there because believe you me, there is a lot of ugly there.

I paired it with my favorite black skirt. I wish you could see some of the detail on this skirt because it has a tuxedo stripe in the middle and the sides of it that go at an angle, which is flattering for my ‘non curvy’ body. But seriously this adorable peter pan collar blouse was $21. TWENTY ONE DOLLARS!!! It has really nice finished edges with black piping and real embroidered roses all around the collar with a double hook clasp. I had a friend today say, “Yeah, thats silk huh?”  I proudly said, “NO! This is a Forever 21 gem!” And honestly, it’s polyester. Cute is cute whether its polyester or silk!

This top would be adorable with denim and some gold flats. Imagine it with red cropped pants and  black sandals? Leopard print? Wedges?  Endless combos here!

Mosey on into Forever 21 and don’t feel intimated with all the….well…..21 year olds walking around. There’s something for everyone in there!

Sorry for the poor quality iPhone pic. It was a super last minute photo!
