Peplum and Leopard Print

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.

Summer please don’t go…


I’ve 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.

Made up jumpsuit

I’ve 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.

Are you ready for some Football?

This 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. 

How will you be representing your favorite team this season?

Dressing up Camo

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 shoes.

Camisole: JCrew Factory $20.00 (sale/recent) Size: 6
Pants: Old Navy $10.00 (sale) Size: 6
Blazer: Attention – Kmart $4.80 (clearance) Size: 4

From Work to Weekend

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.

My Summer Version of Pink, Navy Stripes & White

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.
