Another consignment find!

Hi friends! As you all know now, I love consignment shopping, and this skirt is one of my latest finds. It retails for over $1,600, and I only paid $100! That’s over 90% off!! I definitely gave myself a pat on the back for this one. I paired it with a tee and sandals for a casual work look, but I can also pair it back to a silk blouse and heel for a nicer occasion.

Get out there and find some good deals!!

There’s nothing better than a crisp winter white. This coat is one of my favorite additions to my fall and winter wardrobe. I love that it incorporates the bomber trend with the same collar and wrist details, too. The windowpane pattern is neutral enough to be paired with other patterns as shown above, and I can’t wait to share with you the other ways I wear this coat.

Get to shopping ladies!

Edgy?

So, I love consignment stores. You can find some of the greatest and most unique items with just a little searching. My favorite consignment stores in Dallas are Luxury Garage Sale and To Be Continued (where my mom and I found this tee). I’ve purchased Hermes scarves, a Derek Lam dress and Mother denim overalls, and I paid less than half the price of retail! Consignment stores are also a great way to get rid of items you don’t wear anymore, and make a little cash too. I’ve attached standout items from these stores below:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20

We all know I’m not edgy but this outfit came pretty close.

From Santa

First of all, guys, this is a big moment. I’m not wearing anything by Zara.

Santa surprised me with a few stellar pieces to build my wardrobe. I love the bomber trend but don’t love how the fluffy material makes me look fluffy too. This bomber from Shopbop is a thin silky material, which takes the shape of your body. And, this color is so rich that I’ll pair it with all neutrals.

The flannel booties were also under the Christmas tree. I’m OBSESSED. I first laid eyes on these beauties this summer while working for Tibi, and they made their way into my closet 6 months later. You might get sick of seeing them on me, but I won’t.

Best of 2016

2016 was a great year filled with great outfits, so I decided to share a few of my favorites.

IMG_3211

one: This outfit made the list for many reasons. First of all, this pair of Zara denim has become a favorite of mine. I can’t help but wear them all the time because they are just so comfortable. The Dolce Vita sandals have also been a staple of my spring and summer wardrobe for the last 3 years.

two: Let me tell you… If I could fill my wardrobe with dozens of Self Portrait dresses, I would, but unfortunately, I don’t have the budget for that. Each dress is incredibly unique and incorporates a variety of textures. I’m obsessed.

three: After a summer filled with all things Tibi, I couldn’t help but love the line. I also love the matching set trend and the opportunity to create new looks.

four: I love the overalls just as much as the day I shared them with you. This post also includes one of my favorite blouses and my go-to velvet sandals.

five: Well, y’all have heard me rant about my Old Navy vest enough that you probably think I wear it everyday. It seems I do, just about. It just goes with everything and can make a plain outfit a little less simple.

I can’t wait to see what 2017 holds!

The Skirt Dilemma

Often I struggle finding the perfect top to go with a skirt. Do I need to tuck a shirt in or can it just flow? Well, this sweater is perfect for any high waisted skirt. The sweater sits right at the top of the skirt, so the details of the skirt are fully exposed. I found this cropped sweater at a Helmut Lang sample sale in New York, but I’ve found similar options for you!

PS. my skirt is on sale!!!

A Trolley Ride

May and I got a nice ride down Main Street by Mr. James, a Memphis trolley driver. He pitched many photo ideas and made a few stops for us along the way.

Today, I wore a Zara (of course) green jumpsuit with a denim vest and platform oxfords. Unfortunately, the jumpsuit is no longer available, but I found one similar. This denim vest has become a staple in my wardrobe no matter the season. I pair it with almost everything.

PS. If you haven’t ridden a Memphis trolley before, you must. AND it’s only $1.
