Maxi dresses have definitely become a staple in my wardrobe. Nothing is easier to me in the mornings when I need a quick go-to outfit. This maxi from The Limited is full of beautiful colors, has pockets, and is so comfortable! I just happened to have this perfect goldish belt in my closet for a pop of color. Easy peasy outfit! This dress is on super sale too…grab it while you can (but size down)!

The Limited’s Logan Blouse

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I love a good blouse paired with skinny jeans. I instantly fell for this Printed Logan Blouse from The Limited. One thing I love about it? The not-too-thick-not-too-thin material. Lately there are so many blouses out there that are so thin you have to wear a cami under them. Ugh! This one is perfect where no cami is needed! Can we also talk about the huge variety of colors? The possibilities are endless really – light blue pencil skirt, mint jeans, orange ankle pants. I thought I would pull out the orange color with these necklace I got forever ago at Versona.

These Vince Camuto Effel sandals were a huge hit last year, and they no longer make them. BUT…there is a pair that is very similar, the Evel. It comes in three great colors.

Happy spring, everyone!!

This weather has been unreal lately! I’m not complaining about not having to wear a heavy winter coat or gloves or hat or snow boots…BUT…we had an awfully hot summer, so I’m looking forward to wearing sweaters! Mother Nature has been teasing us. But I welcomed the tease to wear this pretty burnt orange cowl neck sweater from The Limited.

I can’t tell you how many great sweaters I have hanging in my closet that are begging to be worn. Luckily this one is slightly thinner, so I won’t burn up in the 65 degree weather. Also love how it is longer so I can wear leggings and not feel like my booty is exposed at work.

I have to give a shout out to these boots. They were one of my first pairs I purchased five years ago. They have been worn countless times…I love their slouch and low heel that makes them so comfortable. Enzo Angiolini did a great job designing these.

This dress’s print just makes me happy. Who doesn’t love roses?! And who isn’t excited that I can wear this sleeveless dress outside?! With no coat on. In April. This is why I heart living in the south. Here’s to putting away the coats until next November!

Blinged Top and Fancy Pants – and of course Leopard Shoes

I’ve discovered that I really do hate dress pants. But when you are in the working world, they are an evil necessity. So if I have to buy them, they are at least going to be fun! I bought these last spring at The Limited, and I love the pattern and color!

I thought the pants coordinated well with my new pale pink Ted Baker top. I love when Ted has his sales (look, I sound like I know him like he’s my buddy!)…and I got this a couple of months ago. You may say, “Why has you waited so long to wear it?!” Because I’m a lazy ironer. Since I ordered it online, it came with a million wrinkles. I knew this top couldn’t be ironed. So there it hung in my closet…me willing the wrinkles to just miraculously fall out. Guess what? Uh…they didn’t. In comes my new Conair steamer! It worked like a charm! So I wore this top the first chance I got.

I love mixing patterns and prints, so why not go ahead and throw leopard in there?! It’s my new neutral 🙂

The Limited Ashton Blouse

On Monday, I told you about my fascination with button ups. Well, my friends, it continues. I love being comfortable at work, yet look pulled together and not too casual. The Limited’s Ashton Blouse is perfect for this look.

And this blouse comes in so many colors and prints – and it’s on sale!

The fabric is a drapey crepe, and it lays so well. It’s also the perfect V. It doesn’t plunge too much and gives just the right coverage for work. And if you are like me and want a shirt to go past your hip line, this is for you! It looks great with skinny jeans, but also looks great tucked in. It covers a good majority of the booty 🙂

I won’t lie – I just ordered another one in a beautiful purple color. Addiction kicking in!!!

The Limited Ashton BlouseLet me also talk for just a second about these AG Absolute Legging Extreme Skinnies. They are like wearing sweat pants. They have so much stretch…and the fabric is ridiculously soft. And don’t hate, but I got these amazing leggings for a whopping $59. I know; I have a knack for finding amazing deals sometimes. These have become my favorites!

Sparkle and Plaid

I had been seeing a lot of sparkle plus plaid on Pinterest lately, so I thought I would give it a whirl. I love finding inspiration from other bloggers and Pinners. I have to say, this outfit is something I would probably never put together. But, I just needed to be inspired to step outside of my fashion comfort box.

At first, I had a sparkly cream sleeveless shirt on over my plaid shirt, but it looked horrid. So off that came! I thought I would stick to the same color scheme and throw on a navy sparkly t-shirt that I had. Voila! I think it looked pretty good, if I do say so myself.

On a side note, I can’t say enough good things about this plaid shirt. I wish they made more, and I need to grab one in the other color. It’s so comfortable and such a great shirt that you can mix and match so many different ways!

What do you think? Have you stepped outside of your fashion comfort zone lately?

Leopard Print for Work and Play

I love this top. Why? Well…because I do love a good animal print…and peplum. But I also love pieces that are versatile. We were having a client in at work the other day, and I really loved this top with the camel colored pencil skirt. And to make it a little more “business-y,” I simply added the black blazer. I used to never EVER mix brown and black. I have no idea why I ever had that in my head that it was a fashion no-no. I guess you learn as you grow older.

Are you still loving the peplum trend? I love the peplum on this top. The fabric is thick enough where the peplum really stands out. Some tops I’ve seen that are thin, the peplum is, well, not very “peplum-y.” (Wow, am I making up words today or what?!) I think it has to have that perfect kick and not fall flat.

Here’s how adding the black blazer can change up the look almost instantly!

Kisses…on My Shirt

I love a fun print, and couldn’t resist picking up the shirt with lip prints all over it from The Limited. Thought I would also do a little pattern mixing with the stripe shoe. Love it or hate it? I love it.

And on a side note, I would like to point out I’ve had these Old Navy red skinnies for two years now, and they look exactly the same as the day I bought them. I have worn them a TON, and they wash so well!
