90’s trend

Slip Into This

Finally the Spring I know came through!

Right now I’m revisiting a lot of pieces. I think it’s important to buy things you can wear again in a different way. Reinvention is key ladies even if you’ve found your personal style.

On an average Summer day, I would wear open toe sandals with this slip dress and call it a day. This time, I played around with this long blazer from Forever 21. I know what some of you are thinking, she’s obsessed with this trendy store. But it’s a safe place to experiment with trends without hurting your pockets. Save your money for the investment pieces. Reality is when I shop here I’m very particular about the pieces. The prices are cheap, but you don’t ever want to look cheap! So the next time you go shopping at F21, check out ALL their take on Spring trends!

Okay so back to the rest of my outfit of the day. The oversize blazer is très chic and my new favorite item. I’m really loving the “lingerie’s day out” look it gives the entire outfit: slept in and sexy. I think of outerwear like an accessory, a piece of fashion that makes the outfit. I love outerwear in Spring because you have more fun with the options so you’re not worrying about function so much.

I added my new black pumps that have on trend (there’s that word again) lucite accents and an ankle strap. Baby birkin came along for the ride too, couldn’t see any other bag on my side with this look.

What do you think of my look? What kind of posts would you like to see more of on my blog?

Plaid Werk

Experimenting with clothes has always been a passion of mine. Sometimes I can wear a trend and make it my own, but not all trends are made equal. There’s just some trends that don’t suit my style and that’s okay because I’d rather stay true to myself.

As I get closer to 30, I’ve eliminated clothes that just aren’t me anymore, but a trend that I will never grow out of is the 90’s trend. Maybe it’s because I lived through it. Of all the 90’s trends, my favorite is most definitely plaid. The shirt that will always be in my closet has to be this red and black plaid flannel, it’s a bold accent to even the most casual outfits. I love to wear it tied around the waist more than anything. To make the ensemble look a little grown, I wore my favorite ankle strap heels for that extra push. You know that extra touch…especially with the red lip. 😉

Do you have a statement piece that always does it for you? Do you go mad for plaid? Is it the only thing keeping you warm these days?

April is just a couple of days away…
Happy Friday my fellow Budgeters!
