Snakeskin Jeans

Saturday, January 26, 2013

H&M Shirt: Thrifted ($2.50)
JBrand Snakeskin Jeans: Marshalls ($25)
Booties: Forever 21 ($4.99)
Elliott Lucca Bag: Plato's Closet
Jewelry: c/o Oia Jules, Target, Mom's  

Today was a glorious day off. It was filled with delicious lattes, sunny weather, and great company. Can everyday be Saturday?! 
Yesterday was half-off day at the thrift store. So you know I had a field day! I spend about $35 and got tons of items. I'm trying to showcase at least one find in my upcoming outfit posts. Today I'm wearing a simple, yet chic, striped t-shirt. I wanted to mix it up a bit by wearing snakeskin-print jeans- this is about as far as I go with mixing prints! I added gray wedges that I scored from the Forever 21 sale I mentioned in this post. For only $4.99, how could I say no? 
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Brown Leather Jacket

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Leather Jacket: Thrifted ($6)
Blouse: H&M
Jeans: Thrifted
Booties: Target

Yesterday was the start to my last spring semester in college. I’m so thankful for this past break but I’m excited for this new season. This year will be busier than last year, but I’m currently perfecting my time management skills. For instance, today’s outfit post was snapped in about 3 seconds between my morning classes and work.
This outfit is perfect for a cold day. I layered a sweater under my leather jacket for extra warmth, added an infinity scarf and simple booties. I thrifted this jacket last week for only $6! My biggest piece of advice for thrifting is to go with an open mind. I went thrifting last week, not looking for anything in particular and found a ton of items, including this amazing leather jacket. Score!

Grey Tweed Blazer

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Tweed Blazer: Target ($10)
T-shirt: Target
Wax Coated Jeans: Bloomingdales Outlet
Jessica Simpson Heels: Thrifted ($11)
Jewelry: Forever 21/H&M

The weather has been cold lately, but I'm trying to branch out of my normal cold-weather clothing picks: chunky knits, infinity scarfs, and thick socks. I was excited to wear this tweed blazer because it was warm and still chic. Perfect!

I picked up this tweed blazer at Target last week. It had so many great details on it- specks of sparkle threaded in, zippered detailing on the cuffs, and black accents throughout the jacket. It was also on sale for $10, just my style! I decided to wear these metallic heels (thrifted for $11) to accent the metallic threads in the jacket. There is something so glam about a monochromatic outfit and this one is no exception!

Navy Feather Vest

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Feather Vest: Ross ($19)
Lavender Blouse: Forever 21
J Brand Jeans: Thrifted ($4.99)
Sam Edelman Wedges: Marshalls
Necklace: Forever 21

I’ve been crazy about fur vests this season, so I was very excited when I found this feather vest. It’s not the typical fur vest and that’s why I was drawn to it. There is something so glamorous about feathers and the navy blue color was an added bonus. I paired it with my favorite color-lavender. Lavender and navy make such a beautiful pairing; I couldn’t resist putting these pieces together. I added some suede booties, a pretty statement necklace, and cuffed jeans for a fancier, everyday look.

Speaking of statement necklaces- don't forget to enter my statement necklace giveaway!

Metallic Crossbody

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Studded Jacket: Plato's Closet ($12)
Equipment Blouse: Marshalls ($25)
Rich & Skinny Jeans: Plato's Closet
Booties: Thrifted ($5)
Elliott Lucca Bag: Plato's Closet ($20)
Jewelry: Forever 21/Vintage/Target

It's harder to dress for freezing weather. I've been wearing lots on infinity scarfs lately, so I opted for a scarf-free look. I loved the cobalt blue against the olive jacket, it brought a little brightness to a wintery outfit. Let's be honest, I don't wear heels everyday and these booties have been on repeat for quite sometime. They add a little extra height and are comfortable all day long. 
I needed comfortable shoes yesterday because I worked all afternoon, then attended the best concert of my life
- Augustana at The Independent. It was an intimate venue and they played all their popular songs in acoustic. It was my favorite artist in the whole world and I enjoyed it with my favorite person in the whole world. It was incredible.
