Outfit of the week

I've got 3 more outfits to show today. This week was all about earth tones. I really love tans and olive greens. I have been told that the olive colors compliment my light skin.
You may have seen an outfit like this before but I chose to add this pic because it shows the tops color better and the detail on the sleeve. This shirt is from Zulily. It is comfortable, fits well and the color is amazing. It has a slight sheen but not shiny. I almost always pair this top with the featured scarf because they compliment each other so well. I got the scarf from Shoptiques.com using a gift card I received from a Popsugar MustHave box. It was less than $3 and that was the shipping! I know I mention Popsugar a lot but it is worth it! These jeans from Zulily have become my favorite pair, fit extremely well, and I always feel good wearing them. The shoes are brown Clark's flats that I found at Ross. The earings are a jade stone with gold tone wire that I picked up from World Market. They are my second favorite pair of earrings. 
I've finally worked up the courage to wear the tribal print sweater that I picked up from Forever 21. When I first tried it on I felt it looked too boxy, with the help of the brown braided belt I found at Charming Charlie it gave me some shape. Also the wider leg on these heathered brown Gap pants balanced the volume up top. I had several people tell me they liked my sweater and I feel more confident about being able to pull it off. The shoes and earrings are the same from the first outfit.
No great work week is complete without a blazer! This one is a forest green color and I found it from Zulily. I also have it in black. It is a cropped, 3/4 sleeve style. Underneath I have a light knit gray and black short sleeve sweater from Ross. As usual these are the dark gray NYDJ pants that I love and turn to most often. The shoes are a patent black flat from Ross. The silver pennant necklace is from Baublebar.com gifted through one of my Popsugar boxes. It's not too bold but not so dainty that it can't be seen. It's an everyday piece and a welcome addition to my growing collection of accessories. The earrings are a light teal blue with silver wire from World Market.

Most of my clothes and accessories come from the same stores but when I find a store that carries unique quality pieces at reasonable prices I go back as frequent as possible. 

Hope this has given you some ideas on where to look for cool stuff. It's sometimes hard to find clothes etc. on a tight budget but that's the fun in bargain shopping!

Thanks for reading.
Til next time,


  1. Love that scarf in the first outfit! And I'm glad you jumped out of your comfort zone with that cardigan, because it looks great on you!
