Out and about: Oxford heels and denim

What do you wear when you have to get on a boat on a cool fall day? That was the question I asked myself when I was invited for a blogger cruise along the Charles River. I still don’t know the answer to the question but I decided to keep it simple in jeans, oxford shoes and a blazer. This somewhat preppy look is my go to when my creative juices are not flowing. Perhaps next time I could wear it with a camel jacket but I was happy with how the outfit turned out.
What I’m Wearing:
Jeans: Levi’s
Blazer: Club Monaco (similar)
Oxford heel: Etienne Aigner

Style spotlight: The denim jacket

There are certain items that every woman should have and a denim jacket is one of them. There is something about a denim jacket that is stylish yet casual. Denim jackets lost their cool after the 90’s but they have since made their way back into the fashion world. You can wear them with almost anything from dresses to pants. I wore mine with a long skirt and flats for a relaxed look, perfect for a quick run to the mall.


What I am wearing
Denim jacket: Charlotte Russe (similar)
High/Low Midi Skirt: Banana Republic
Flats: Tory Burch

Smart shopping featuring Plaid and Denim

If shopping was my profession I would have won numerous awards for outstanding performance…well at least that’s what I tell myself. A great shopper is someone that can get more for less and still look fab without sacrificing quality. The key is to take your time and avoid paying full price. I seriously don’t remember the last time I got something that wasn’t on sale. This whole look cost me around $50 for good quality items.
What I’m wearing:
Plaid shirt: TJ Maxx $10
Levi Jeans: Macys sale plus coupon $18.99
Nine West heels: Macys sale with coupon $24.99
Please note items may no longer be on sale, but remember to be patient and don’t pay full price!

Fashion spotlight: The Peplum top

This week’s look features a white peplum top with blue jeans and white strappy heels. What I loved about this look is its simplicity thus making it perfect choice for casual Friday at work. Peplum tops made their fashion comeback last year and they have gained popularity because of their ability to cover problem areas. A peplum top is a good choice if you want to cover your tiny pouch or love handles. I really bought this top because it looked cute and it was my favorite color.

What I am wearing:
Jeans: Levi’s
