Cobalt and grey




Blazer- Forever21- option
blouse- JCPenney
pants- Belks similar
shoes- Payless option option
necklace- Sassy Steals option
Worn April 11, 2014
 
I love to infuse color into my work attire. There is no better color than cobalt. I have a couple of outfits with cobalt and grey pinned, but I had to add a twist and a little more color by throwing in the necklace. Oh and the shoes too. I got lots of compliments on these shoes all day long.

Fun shoes




Blazer/pants- GAP
blouse- JCPenney option
necklace- gift
shoes- Payless option option
Worn April 10, 2014
 
I saw these shoes on the Payless website and made a mental note that they would be a fun pair to have but I wasn't sure about them. Then I saw a couple of other bloggers wearing them and knew they looked great in real life. Final confirmation came when I saw yet another blogger wear a striped pair of flats with business attire. I made a trip to Payless and they had my size in store.
 
I wore these to work and kept the outfit conservative. I got compliments on these all day.

Dots+mint




pants- JCPenney option
shoes- TJMaxx option
worn April 8, 2014
 
How easily they sucker me in! A couple of months ago JCrew Factory had a really good sale so I went to the site to get the popover in black dots. I originally wanted this color and ended up with a blue one. The blue on has gotten lots of wear, so I knew it would be a good idea to get the black one too. The blazer caught me eye because it was also on sale and I needed to replace my old mint blazer. My old one has seen so much wear, there is no way the dry cleaners can salvage the sleeves. So I have the blazer and shirt in my cart and they suggest the necklace. Um, well, it does go together and tie these two pieces together, and it was on sale, so why not. Suckered right in.
 
 And even though I was not buying the first two pieces to wear as an outfit, I realized they would make a cute oufit. Apparantley, I'm not the only one who thinks so. Search Pinterest for mint blazer, and you will see lots of mint blazers over black polka dots.

Leopard blouse- 2 ways



 
Blazer- thrifted option option
blouse- Calvin Klein via Ross option option
skirt- JCPenney
shoes- Ann Klein/Belks
worn April 7, 2014
 
I was inspired by Mix and Match Fashion and The Style Files to pair my hot pink blazer with a leopard blouse and black pencil skirt. I really like how leopard and hot pink work together. Please excuse the photos- it was storming outside when I took these pics so I was forced indoors.
 
I've also worn this blouse before with a coral/orange cardigan and camel pants.
 

 
Just in case you missed it before, you can also check out 7 work outfits with the hot pink blazer.
 
 I also have a leopard print blouse for sale in my Poshmark closet. I decided it wasn't too flattering on me, but it would look adorable on someone else.
 
Hope you have a great week. Linking up here:

Dressed down



 
Dress- Belks option option
Jacket- Old Navy
shoes- Target option
 Worn April 6, 2014
 
I bought this dress last year and wore it for Easter and then a few more times, but I don't think it ever made it to the blog. It's very pretty by itself with heels, and I'm sure you will see it again, but I was inspired by Penny Pincher Fashion to dress it down and add a denim jacket. I opted for my white one instead of the blue one.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Chambray and colored skinnies



 
Shirt- Old Navy
jeans- JCPenney option option
shoes- Payless option
sunnies- Espirit/ TJMaxx option option
Worn April 5, 2014
 
Should I admit that I wore this outfit THREE times last week? Yep, I did. I wore it to church youth group meeting Wed. night, out to supper Friday night, and threw it on again Saturday morning to go to a yard sale. By the third time, I thought, well, if I'm going to wear it three times, this outfit should definitely make it to the blog.
 
Sometimes I think things are too simple or casual to blog about or even be an "outfit" but then again, that's the charm of some pieces- not much thought required- throw on and go- and still look cute. Chambray shirts and colored skinnies can do just that. Throw on cute shoes, and well, you've just elevated it. The first time I wore this, I was just going to put on a pair of brown flats, but then I saw these plaid deck shoes still out from wearing them the weekend before, and realized they would match. I'm not much into matchy, matchy anymore, but I thought these worked. Needless to say (since I wore this three times on one week) this whole outfit was very comfy.
 
If you read from a reader, you may not have noticed the widget, but I've opened a closet at Poshmark to sell some things I can't and don't wear. Please check it out.

Yellow and navy




 
Jacket- Cato old option option
blouse- Sears (old) option option option
pants- Limited
shoes- old option option
Worn April 4, 2014
 
 
Yellow and navy is a combination I really like. I took some old pieces from my closet and remixed them into an outfit I've never worn using the color combination. This jacket has a matching skirt and typically that's the only way I've worn it, but I'm breaking up their relationship. I've got plans for the skirt too.
