winter floral & lace

Top - LOFT (on sale for $12)
Skirt - Old Navy (on clearance for $9)
Heels - Aldo ($100)
Purse - TJMaxx ($30, similar here)
Earrings - TJMaxx

Don't mind the big flake of dandruff in my hair, that's just another accessory (pic 3). Winter time, it always get's the best of me no matter my geographical location. 

Anyways, every single piece in this look I absolutely am in love with. I love when all my favorite pieces can work together to create the perfect look. Lace sleeves, fun floral skirt, classic black pumps,  glam statement earrings, and a purse that looks way more expensive than it really is... this is why I get excited to get dressed in the morning!

Happy Hump Day!

leopard pants

Top - Old Navy ($15, now only $12)
Pants - Old Navy ($15, here in blue and black)
Heels - Aldo ($100)
Purse - TJMaxx ($80)
Earrings - JCPenney ($11)

It feels good to be back! If any of you noticed my absence, I really have just been trying to focus on myself and get through some personal things. Nothing terrible, just one of those times in a gal's life that she needs to take for herself. It actually felt nice getting dressed and not having to worry about the blog for a few weeks. I think I wore the same outfit 5 times one week, and didn't do anything to my hair another week. But I'm back and ready to blog again! 

I may be consistent with it, or I might not be. I'm just going to blog when I feel like it, not because I feel like I HAVE to. I think taking the "have to" away is going to make it more enjoyable. I started to feel like blogging was more of a competition with other ladies, and trying to prove things to to other people that I didn't even care about. Do any of my other blogger ladies feel the same way? That's not why I started this blog, I started this blog as a way for me to have fun with my style and share my love for fashion, all while staying on a budget. So here it goes, back to the fun... 

I'm sure you all know my love for old Navy by now (and leopard). When I saw these pants I knew I had to have them. Old Navy is really upping their game, and they always have a great deal going on. I paired the pants with a basic dark chambray top, black pumps, and my fave fringe purse. Adding in color with a statement earring was the perfect finishing touch.

The Look For Less

structured black pump

Madewell | Aldo

 I almost took the plunge for the Madewell heels, but stumbled into Aldo yesterday and spotted the bottom ones. Almost the same exact heels for $70 less. How bout that?
