Let's go shopping!

Come along with me (virtually) on my shopping trip to Dress Barn and Lane Bryant! Technically this was a few weeks back (I've work one of these outfits in an OOTD post already in fact!)


Lane Bryant: stripped dress.
Decision: Keep



 
Lane Bryant: mixed decision...
The ponte pants and the jersey top were awesome! I almost got the blazer but decided to stick to the trousers and blouse as some base pieces to add to my wardrobe.


  
Dress Barn: Pass
In hind sight, this skirt and that gray blazer were both great pieces! I liked them better after downloading the pics off my phone than I did when I posed in the mirror. The print top I liked but it was too small. The blue top is the one I purchased at Lane Bryant (I liked it so much I decided to wear it the rest of the day!)

Dress Barn: Calvin Klein LBD
Keep! Loved this one! And a girl can never have too many LBDs!!!

Slay it!

Hey all! Do you ever feel like somedays you just slay it?!? That was me earlier this week! Had a meeting at one of our remote offices requiring an overnight stay. I was super-pumped for my meetings when I woke the next morning!

Gratuitous hotel mirror selfie...

And gratuitous elevator mirror selfie too!

Although a somewhat more casual office look, I really felt I slayed it!

Chevron Fit and Flare Work Dress

Hey all! I've been busy for the past few months, picking up a new project at work and very limited on time to focus on my blogging. But I've still been focused on my style! I recently picked up this pretty chevron print dress from Chicwe. This is my second Chicwe dress; I also have a cowl neck dress in my closet.


Dress: Chicwe
Blazer: Auline
Pumps: Pleaser



I was planning on going bare legged but it was just a bit too chilly; so I added a pair of tights!


Keeping it real... I love the look of my pumps, but I gotta keep it comfy on the commute! Here's my fun American Eagle Bree Flats from Payless.

Date Night Stripes!

Hubs took me on a date night this week! I was in a fun and colorful mood so I donned a dress that matched my feelings that evening! I found this amazing Merona striped shift and Ava and Viv tights on a recent Target haul; paired with some fun booties (not pictured), it was a perfect outfit for a nice dinner and movie date with my man!

Raiding my hubby's closet again

Maxi Skirt: Ava and Viv | Men's Shirt: Lovingly borrowed from my husband's closet

I was inspired by the amazing Jodi of Jodi's Touch of Style with her look at how she and the women in her life have borrowed from her husband's closet to create great looks. I've done this myself before a few times so I thought I'd go for the look again by taking one of Jason's black button up shirts and styling it with one of my maxi skirts. Have you found ways to incorporate pieces from the men in your life?

And please check out Jodi's site; she has some great looks for women in their 50s, 60s, and 70s. Fashion is ageless! I hope to be as fashionable when I get there!
