Wrap tops can go either way for me. They are either way to large leaving a gaping neckline exposing my bra, or they are way to tight in the boobs and also leave my bra showing.  I realize in some instances, flaunting your brassiere can be stylish, even classy if done right. However, this was not the look I was going for as I wore this to yet another Target run for the week.

When I tried on this top, I was surprised that the fit was neither of the above scenarios. It fit so well! The off the shoulder detail is so cute and feminine and I love the red rose print. This top is great for a casual outfit when paired with some distressed jeans as I did.   You could add a pair of dark jeans and some cute pumps. Or even a pair of faux leather leggings!  I added this gold choker necklace and like to style it with low necklines or your basic crew neck. To add a little more gold detail to the outfit,  I wore these studded block heels which are the perfect alternative for the more expensive version.

Weekend away

We are in New Jersey this weekend for a wedding.  A good friend of my husband is getting married and we are excited to get away for a few days.  We did have a little time to explore this area and found a couple of cute restaurants.  Watch for a post on our trip soon.

I can’t believe that next weekend is already Labor Day weekend! Summer went by so fast! We all seem to be so busy but I hope you were able to fit some fun trips over the summer and I would love to hear all about it. What was your favorite part of this past summer?

Grey Duster + Dandelion Top

Happy Friday all!  Looks like there is 6 more weeks of winter according to Punxsutawney Phil so don’t start putting away you sweaters yet.  Before yesterday, we were having 60 degree weather..  Today I’m trying to keep warm in this grey duster sweater.

Grey Duster + DANDELION sweater

Did you know that dusters were originally worn by men or women to keep their clothes clean from the trail dust while riding their horse?   This outfit is basically how I live during the colder months.  Cute top + cardigan sweater + jeans (or leggings).  I love delicate, feminine prints and knew I had to have this dandelion top when I saw it.  Although you can’t see the back in these photos, but it has the cutest strappy detail that I plan on showing off in the spring.  For now, I’ll just have to keep it secret by adding cozy sweaters over the top.

I’m so into the tassel earring trend!  These specific earrings are sold out but BaubleBar has some very cute alternatives.  And you can never go wrong with a pair of black pumps.  They can easily change your outfit into something a litter fancier you can wear out to dinner.

Black Thermal Top + Statement Necklace

Large statement jewelry has become one of my favorite things to shop for.  I am easily distracted by shiny objects and I find many fun and sparkly pieces.  This specific statement necklace was online but no longer available when I went to purchase.  I found the same one on a website called Poshmark.  I have added a little information at the bottom if you would like to know more about Poshmark.

Statement jewelry is a fun and easy way for you to dress up a basic outfit.   A simple tee-shirt, a solid color dress or a long sleeve thermal can all be  “fancier”  with a little added sparkle.  This thermal top is so comfy and soft, I could just as easily wear it with a pair of PJ pants and slippers.  What I also love about this top is the extra long sleeves with thumb holes!  Add a pair of skinny jeans and a pair of black pumps or printed heels like these, and this outfit is ready for happy hour with the girls!

Poshmark

If you haven’t heard of Poshmark, it’s a great site to buy and sell clothing you no longer wear.   It’s a great way to find a specific item you are dying to have but can no longer  find.  Although they do take a small portion for shipping, it is a great way to make a little extra money.  It’s easy to use whether you are buying or selling.   The app makes it simple to take photos of your items for sale and post a short description.  You can browse through many items for sale or use the search to narrow down to a specific item you are looking to buy.  Make an offer for an item you Must have and if it is accepted, you will be wearing your new purchase in just a few days!

I hope you all have a fun and exciting weekend planned!  As always, I would love to hear your questions and comments!
