Looking for those versatile pieces for fall? Check out this shirt dress from Target! Not only is it a wildly popular hue, but it is a perfect dress to take you from cool fall months to cold winter ones. It is definitely a comfortable, modest dress, which makes it wonderful for work. I used camel peep-toe booties (from the #NSale) and a berry-colored bag to add warm accent colors to this outfit for the fall season. Take a look at the shopping board below for ways to style this dress for the frosty, snowy days ahead, too.

Part of being a budget-conscious shopper is stretching your closet staples to fit into more than one season. Booties are so great for this! These faux-suede lace-up cut-out booties are from Fashion Junkee and also come in gray and camel brown. They are SO trendy right now the way they wrap around your ankles with such fun tassel ties. Take them from fall into spring and summer with these style tips: Find an ankle style with some openings in the design whether with a peep toe, cut-outs, or lace-ups. Pair them with shorts. Find some frayed, distressed denim in white, black, or blue jean. Make it a boho look with a summer vest or kimono, duster, wrap, or oversized sweater (for those cool nights). Match them to one of … Read More

One Dress 4 Ways

You may have noticed (especially if you follow along on Instagram) that I have had so much fun layering with dresses! I guess in Arizona, our temperatures allow us to do that pretty easily during our “cool” months. I wanted to share a recent gem I found – a navy swing dress! Old Navy sold the most beautiful burgundy dress in the fall season (see that post here), and unfortunately I was too late to order it in more than one color. Since the day it sold out, I have been on the hunt for a dress just like it. And friends, my search is up! This dress is from SheIn Clothing, and is long enough for work, and the material is thick and flattering. It comes … Read More

Another edition of shopping on a budget is here! On Wednesdays, I’m highlighting trendy yet very affordable pieces from stores where I enjoy shopping. Today I’m sharing a shopping board with things under $30 (and many under $20) from Forever 21 that I am ready to house in my own closet! (Note that Forever 21 offers free shipping on orders over $50.) For those of you into layering over dresses like me, I am loving this chunky tie sweater. Pairing it with black boots then a striped or solid dress would be so cute! I found a few chic looks for the gym, too – fabulous gym wear always gets me more motivated to go. Check out this sleeveless hoodie and Saturday & Sunday tank (because don’t we all need an extra day … Read More

Olive Green Jacket

Olive green has been a “hot hue” for a few years now, and this fall, I decided to find one of those coveted green, military-inspired jackets. Finding the perfect one proved to be difficult because there are so many to choose from! Being on a teacher’s budget, I didn’t want to spend over $100 on a jacket. So when I saw this one for under $50, I knew I had to try it! Dressing the Olive Jacket Trend I chose peep-toe booties to wear with this outfit to bring it into our fall season. I also really like how the taupe-colored top accents the olive green. This is the top I posted on Instagram a while back that has darling ruffle sleeves. If the sun … Read More
