I feel like some styles quickly come and go in the fashion
industry, but fortunately peplum tops have stuck around. The feminine
silhouette hides little imperfections and can be worn with any bottom and for
any different occasion. Last week when the temperatures were still
in the mid 80’s I decided to pair my classic black peplum top with a leopard
print pencil skirt.
noticed lots of fellow bloggers rocking some fabulous fall looks, but here I am
holding on to summer as much as possible. The weather transition in Virginia
is quite moderate and very pleasant. You can definitely wear your silky tops
without having to worry about getting some icky sweat stains. I do
have some cute layering outfit ideas in the woodworks, but for now I’m
just going to keep wearing my pencil skirts and enjoy the perfect weather.
wanted to purchase a trendy jumpsuit for quite a while but felt like most of
them were a bit more for going out rather than being office appropriate.
I was thrilled when I found these pants at Target in the clearance
section especially since I knew right away I would be able to pair them with
this navy silky top I scored at Plato’s closet for only $5.00 brand new! I
added the gold belt and this two piece outfit became an instantaneous chic
jumpsuit for the office.

week kicks off another great NFL Football season. Even though I don’t
always get to watch the entire game on TV, I still love to show support
for my favorite football team, the Washington Redskins. My wonderful
mother in law gifted me my first jersey and I wanted to add a touch of class by
pairing it with a pencil skirt and leopard print shoes for a perfect
office appropriate outfit.
will you be representing your favorite team this season?
I purchased these pants this Spring at Old Navy when they
were only $10.00 during a one day sale event. I’ve never featured them on
the blog because I’ve typically worn them with a t-shirt on the weekend or for
a casual look to work on Fridays. But this time I decided to dress them
up by pairing them with a bright color cami, a blazer, and some fun girly
I mentioned in my previous post that while we were on
vacation in Florida I was able to do some shopping. The only particular thing I
had in mind were white skinny jeans. Before finding them at TJMAXX,
I did purchase these high waisted jeggings at the Aeropostale outlet store for
only $5.99. The hubs reminded me that they weren’t on my “buy list” but
honestly for the price and fit I wasn’t going to pass these up. These are
the second pair of high waisted jeggings (original post) I’ve purchased from Aeropostale and I
just love how comfortable and versatile they are.
Occasion: Work or Date Night
T-shirt: Gap outlet store $4.99 (recent/clearance) Size: Small
High waisted jeggings: Bethany Mota - Aeropostale outlet store $5.99 (clearance/recent) Size: Small
While we were on our Florida trip, we were able to do a
little bit of shopping and take advantage of the outlet deals. Although I
spent most of my money on new sneakers and matching workout clothes, I was on a
mission to find a perfect crisp white pair of skinny jeans. I searched plenty
of the outlet stores with no luck until one evening the hubs suggested
TJMAXX. Sure enough that’s where I found these babies in the Junior’s
department. They may not have been on clearance, but with a price tag of
$19.99 I simply couldn’t pass them up.
