The sweater dress has been all the rage this winter. I have spotted it in every style, length, color… and to be honest… on pretty much every woman. Well done ladies! It’s the right choice. Honestly, every time I see someone wearing the good ol’ sweater dress I think… [looks great, bravo!]
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.
I have determined that it is all about the details that takes a look from OK to Great! And when you get really good you can find those details. Just once piece can make the entire outfit.
Let me explain a little better what I mean by that.
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.
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!

Another Fun Top – Green Vest
Summer is coming to an end. No, that does not mean it will get any cooler here in Baltimore … <we carry this heat with us through fall>… but all the SUMMER sales are happening and Fall Fashion is quickly approaching. So, for me that alerts me to only buy into clothing that will work great as transitional pieces. Well, in my opinion jean shorts are perfect for spring, summer and fall and I consider them a staple almost all year round and one thing you can never have enough of. I got you!
There is nothing better then a good comfortable jumpsuit.
I will give you a little secret too. Any jumpsuit with the word Palazzo attached to it will guarantee comfort. This wide leg, flattering style is by far one of my favorites. In other words, it’s super comfortable and so easy to wear.
Certainly, I hope you are squeezing in one more little vacation or weekend getaway in before summer comes to a close. As a result, I will do the packing with these perfect Palazzo looks that are all under $40.00.
A few options –
Strapless Striped Satin Palazzo Jumpsuit: $15.92 These colors scream summer and with the elastic strapless style and wide leg palazzo pant, comfort is never an issue. Pair this one with a straw bag and some cute flip flops and take this look from day to night on any island (and if you can’t get to an island just put it on and pretend).
Crinkled Palazzo Jumpsuit: $38.00 This easy going jumpsuit can take you right from the airplane to a lunch date, beach side. First, it has POCKETS, and also comes in a sage color if the mustard yellow is not your color. This one keeps things easy breezy!
Printed Cami Palazzo Jumpsuit: $25.99 This is the perfect jumpsuit for a weekend getaway where there is sand and water! The shorten Palazzo style is perfect for warmer temps. Pair it with heels or flats. With that price you can afford to buy two with the many colors and patterns it comes in.
Bow Front Palazzo Pants: $38.00 If you are not into jumpsuits or feel they are just not your style I have picked some adorable Palazzo Pants that you can just as easily pair with a a simple bodysuit, like this. I love the detail of the bow on these pants and the wide leg pairs perfectly with tighter fitting top. Such a flattering look on all body types!
Two Piece, Tie Front Palazzo Set: $32.99 I recently ordered this and I LOVE IT. That is to say, I know it’s technically not a “jumpsuit.” But, I am loving the two piece sets with the Palazzo Pants. In short, they pair perfectly with the tie front and there are many different colors and patterns to pick from so, find your match!

It’s a tradition.
Yes, the beach is a tradition in my family and BEACH WEEK is finally here. Every year, this time of year, my family’s annual Werle Beach Trip takes place. Now, if you have not already guessed, I love the beach, the hot sun, the pool, and thus I love summer. I love it all and it would just not be the summer if we did not have a full week “down the ocean” in August!
