I NEEDED a pair of specific jeans. It was one of those things where I could draw a picture of what I wanted these “specific jeans” to look like that I would label as my “run around jeans.” With the specific look in mind, I tried on about 20 different pairs and every pair I tried on was wrong, wrong, wrong. Finally, I found the classic Levi’s brand and BOOM, sold.
Animal print is all the rage right now (cheetah, leopard, whatever you want to call it). Toss in the snakeskin print you currently see everywhere and you find yourself right on trend. With that in mind, of course I had to get a pair. Therefore, I was on the hunt for a pair of boots that had to meet some very specific details. Good news, the look is super popular so there was a ton to pick from.
Because you walk with a bit more pep in your step when…
- You love your outfit
- ALL OF IT COMBINED is Under $100.00
Don’t believe me, check it out below.
Ok ladies… I am trying something new, play along!
Build an outfit:
Here’s the idea…
I am going to tell you to walk into your own KLOSET and pick out the base of the outfit I am looking for you to build. We will add to this base but your only objective is to find the BASE in your own KLOSET. This will be something basic and something you probably already own and if you do not have something exactly like what I am talking about I am sure you can find something very similar.
Ok Ladies, this bodysuit is E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G. I will admit that when I ordered it I was unsure with what the quality would be. But I was pleasantly surprised and it became a quick favorite.
I think bodysuit season is a year round thing and this one in particular is perfect for any time and all the time and heres why…
- It is so easy to dress up or dress down.
- Its easy to put a cute outfit together starting with the jumpsuit and changing up what you pair the bodysuit with. Sharing those details below!
Cheetah print, leopard print, animal print… I don’t really care what you call it. IT IS IN and I LOVE IT. I know I know, it has been popular and “IN” for a little bit now, BUT I have noticed it more and more and adding it to any outfit is ALWAYS a good idea.
It’s turning chilly and I am ALWAYS freezing. No, I am serious. Even in the summer I find myself feeling chilly. For Fall, that means I turn to the Long pants and top look for most #outfitofthenights these days. This is somewhat of a struggle for me though, because honestly, that can be way boring! That leaves me searching for cute tops and ones that can make the basic jeans look, not look so basic.
The fall vibes are here. No matter what the temps are you can’t ignore that fall feeling and that it is officially October and Halloween is JUST around the corner. Along with all things pumpkin flavor, come the perfect fall looks!
This time of year is tough. The calander tells us it is fall… but in Baltimore it is still in the high 80’s. Even if you live some place that does not have these higher temperatures, it is still is that time of year that screams TRANSITION. So, as I shop… [ because, well that is what I love to do ] … I try to keep that word at the front of my brain. TRANSITION PIECES ONLY.
So, when I initially found this cute “thing” I am pictured in, it seemed like it was just as confused as to what it was made for as I was when I looked at it. Summer or fall? Making it one of the many, perfect transition pieces. This half romper, half maxi dress seems to be all the rage and one that you can find a use for in both the summer and fall which makes me ALL IN!
Things to keep in mind:
- Add a jean jacket. Thats always my motto these days but when temps. drop it makes everything transition perfectly.
- Wear this with booties or wedges to match the look you are going for.
SOME THAT COULD WORK THAT I FOUND
- Lastly, whichever look you go for, keep in mind a more neutral pallet is best. Bright colors scream summer so when you stay more neutral its easier to transition.
Below are a few I found that will also be added to my closet!
AMAZON : Off the Shoulder Floral Maxi Romper Dress [Very Similar to the one I am pictured in – UNDER $35.00]

I am all about FUN tops this Fall Season and I can say this one ranks in the top three of my most fun tops purchased. Now, not to worry, I have prepared myself with the comments that I will receive while wearing this top. I realize it has very puffy sleeves and a ton of ruffles… BUT, guess what, I don’t care. I love it and I think its so fun! Remember, at the end of the day that’s what matters. Find something you love and rock it!
For me, if I am going to toss on a pair of blue jeans to head out for a night, I better make my outfit interesting with some cute shoes or a top. So for this top… give me all the ruffles.
Sizing: I am wearing a small and it would show some of my stomach if I did not pair it with high waisted jeans (I personally think high waisted anything is the way to go with this look but, like I said earlier, make the look your own).
Button Details: It does have some clips on the chest area that allows you to open or close the front based on how much skin you would like to show and what may be appropriate for you!
My Suggestion: Take an iron and press down on the sleeves when you first get it. This will help the ruffles lay better. I also think this look pairs best with you hair up. Allow the shirt to do the talking.
The best part – It is UNDER $30.00!
