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.

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.

Midi Skirt

I’m not big on trends and usually try to stick to the classics.  By now, most of you may know that my go to favorite type of skirts are pencil style.  However, I’ve recently been really drawn to try something new, the midi skirt.  I was a bit hesitant since I’m only 5’3 and felt a bit too short for this trend, but I decided to give it a shot after seeing fellow bloggers pulling off this style and also finding one online for the reasonable price of $20. With this being my first time wearing the midi skirt, I wanted to keep all the colors neutral for a simple look.  In fact, several of my co-workers thought I was actually wearing a dress.  I’m still looking for new ways to wear this skirt so if you have any ideas please send them my way.

So Comfy…

I could practically live in these comfy harem pants my mother in law gave me during our trip to Florida.  I probably wouldn’t have picked them out for myself thinking they wouldn’t be too flattering, but I was mistaken. I wore them during our trip on one of our nightly outings and I’ve also been able to dress them up for work.  The neutral leopard print makes them easy to match and pair with any color.  I hope this trendy style doesn’t go out of style any time soon.

Navy, Mint and a dash of leopard...

Ever Since I was a little girl, yellow has always been my favorite color. In the past few years though I’ve become very fond of the color mint.  I’ve mentioned in previous posts how versatile this color is and how well it blends into all the seasons.   I have several mint color tops and a pair of skinny corduroy jeans that fit me a little too loose. The one item I felt I was missing was my all-time favorite “pencil skirt.” So when JCrew came out with this perfect little number, I stalked it until it went on sale, and finally when it became a clearance item with an additional 40% off.   Let me just tell you I scored big time. I paid a fraction of the original price and I’m completely in love with the fabric and fit.  This beautiful skirt was definitely worth the wait.

On another note, how perfect does this beautiful blouse match this skirt? My best friend from Miami,  Maydivi, gave it to me as a gift during our trip to Florida this past summer.

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.
