The Easiest Legging Outfit

This morning was one of those mornings. I didn't pull out my outfit the night before and I struggled at 6am staring at my entire closet and thinking "what do I want to wear". I settled on black leggings and a basic long sleeve grey shirt. 

This is about as basic as you can get. But knowing me I love to add color somehow. My solution: adding a scarf. I got this one a while back from the HSN store (yes, there are local stores around the area that has HSN merchandise). It was from the Vince Cameo line. I love that it is a simple stripe and just adding a little bit of pink makes the outfit pop!

The boots are from Zulily. I ordered these about 3 years ago. These have been one of my favorite pairs of boots. I scored a great deal on this pair and another around January. They were about $20 each. January is great time to get some deals on boots not just on Zulily, but everywhere!

The Fleece Cardigan

If your office is anything like mine, it gets ridiculously cold to the point where you are shivering. I actually bought this sweater yesterday at TJ Maxx. My main reason why I went was to get some Christmas pillows. But of course I had to browse through the clothes. (I did find pillows too!).

They always have so many different types of third pieces. I am always trying to add something to my wardrobe that I don't currently have or something that has an added value to it. Then this one came along. It is has fleece inside, to me that was the added value that was different from other sweaters that I had. It is absolutely so soft and when it gets really cold here I would just wear something like this around my house. 

I love the idea of adding an open sweater, sometimes known as a third piece as a way to make not just a comfortable outfit but a functional one to keep you warm.

Ponte "Hybrid" Pant

Happy Wednesday Everyone! Thought I would give a wear to work inspiration. Again, sorry about the mirror selfies. 

One of the staple pieces of any wardrobe, especially if you work for a company that you have to dress business casual is the black pant. I prefer to wear skinny legs. I don't particularly care that I am more curvy and theres sigma that curvy girls can't wear skinnies. But there are plenty of other choices out there. There's straight, boot cut, or even flare. It just depends on what you are comfortable with and if you wear heels or not. 

I found this pair of pants recently in Target. They are what I am calling a 'hybrid". They fit like leggings but are the material of a Ponte fabric. They are absolutely so comfortable. They do have a higher waist on them and these cute zipper pockets. They are really great at hiding/holding in the mid section. And the best part they were only $25!

The Lace Dress

First of all, please excuse the mirror selfie photos. It began to rain during my photo shoot this weekend.

One of my favorite things to do is to "mog" around Target. Treat myself to Starbucks and spend an unnecessary amount of money on things I think I need. 

I recently received a promotion at work. I am officially an Associate Buyer! I have been waiting for this moment and it's great to be recognized for all the hard work I have done. So I decided to treat myself to some shopping at Target.

I had been waiting a few more Fall style dresses. Most of the dresses I own are either maxis or more Spring/Summer styles. When I saw this dress I fell in love with the color and the style. I was also excited that it was such an easy silhouette to style. The lace overlay and the lace front is trend right. 

Plus I got so many compliments today!

The Mustard Yellow Top

One of my favorite places to shop are outlets malls. Back in the day their assortment included products from the regular stores that didn't sell. Now with gaining popularity, the merchandise you see in the outlets is specifically made for that store. 

One of my favorites is the Gap Outlet. I worked for Gap for a little over 5 years. So I kinda have a soft spot in my heart for Gap. I particularly don't really shop in the regular store anymore. Their product to my isn't very innovative anymore and not very flattering. But the outlet still has some cute tops and jeans for an affordable price. 

I got this yellow top a few weeks ago on an outlet mall excursion. I love that they always offer an extra percentage off their clearance (since I am an avid clearance shopper). I scored this top for $7!

The Military Boot

About 2 years ago I was out shopping at Rue 21 and they had a deal for BOGO free boots. I got this pair of military style lace up and also a pair of brown flat ones. 

It wasn't a huge trend back then, but they were different than any other boots I owned. My first thought was to pair them with black leggings and camo. 

One of the many boot trends this season is the military combat boot. I was happy to see that, since I already owned a pair of them. 

These boots for me are a little more edgy than I usually wear. But it's all about stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something different. And the best part it you don't have to buy tall ones like mine, there is shorter styles out there too! You can also do a brown pair as well. 

Check out some of these great styles below to add to your wardrobe.
