It’s been way too long…


I hope everyone had a great Holiday season and a fantastic New Year.  As expected, mine was busy with family visiting from out of town.  Thankfully I had great help from my wonderful mother in law.  Unfortunately my mom and younger sister didn’t come up from Miami this year because my grandmother is simply too old and fragile, but luckily we’ll be seeing them in a few weeks for my cousin’s wedding back home.  I’ve started this year with great excitement and high expectations since I decided to pursue my passion in fitness and train to compete in a bikini bodybuilding show in mid-summer or beginning of fall.  This will definitely take up most if any of my free time, but in between my legging days and messy hair I will still dress up and snap pictures of my bargain outfits worthy of sharing with you all.    Until next time, here are some of last month’s outfits before the crazy cold hit the RVA.

Blush & Burgundy

Remember when oxblood (a.k.a. burgundy) was the "it" fall color of the previous years.  Well I definitely do, especially since I didn’t stop worrying myself to death until I got this pencil skirt as a Christmas gift last year.  I honestly feel like I haven’t given it much love mainly due to the thick wool material which can be tricky to wear on unexpected warmer days like when I took this picture a few weeks ago.  Virginia is notorious for its quick weather changes which makes it tricky for this Florida girl to get dressed during the colder months.

Skirt: JCrew Factory (Christmas gift) & $7.00 tailor fee-slimmed Size: 4

An unusual kind of print mixing

I’ve mentioned in the past how this red and navy skirt from Eshakti is by far one of my favorite pencil skirts.  The classic all American look can easily be paired up with similar colors.  In the past I’ve worn it with a classic button down white shirt (seen here) and also with my favorite dog sweater from Old Navy (seen here).  This time around I wanted to push the envelope and try to wear it differently.  Since it is in the same color palette, this hummingbird blouse was the perfect print.  






































Occasion: Work 

Shirt: MNG by Mango - JCPenney $10.00 (clearance) Size: 4
Skirt: c/o eShakti & Tailor Fee $7.00 (slimmed down) Size: 8
Watch: Michael Kors – Nordstrom $200.00 (sale/recent)
Gold Bangle: Childhood gift from my grandma    
 
Nude Shoes: Comfort Plus – Payless Shoesource $12.50 (Buy One Get One 50% Off/recent) Size: 7.5

Happy Halloween


I hope everyone enjoys their Halloween evening.  I actually wore this outfit a few week back but decided to post it today in honor of one of my favorite holidays.
I won't be dressing up this year but my little monsters will be wearing creative costumes we
made at home.  Check out my Instagram (dayissenseofstyle)for the silly pics.

You paid how much?

Would you believe me if I told you I only paid $4.99 for this Calvin Klein dress?  That’s right fellow fashionistas. I scored this beautiful multi colored stripe dress for less than a lunch meal at Ross about 2 months ago when I took my oldest daughter shopping for her senior pictures.  I had no intention of shopping, especially since my funds were allocated just for her, but while searching the clearance dress section I came across this beauty.  My first thought was there must be something wrong with the dress, but after trying it on and inspecting every inch of It I figured the size on the tag must have been the reason for no one snagging it up sooner.  The size on the label is an  8 but it fits more like a 6.  The dress is sleeveless and it fit me a bit loose under my arms but a quick trip to the tailor and this small hiccup was quickly fixed.  I haven’t found a deal this great in a really long time and even though it’s more of a summer dress, I easily added a sweater for an easy summer to fall transition look.
