Colonel Mustard

Colonel Mustard, in the yard with ridiculous good style? Maybe not but I must admit, I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS COLOR! This mustard yellow is so fall and I have to say that fall is my favorite season and I am sad to see it go so soon! Sometimes when I'm running late for school I just like to throw a bunch of basics together and "Make it work!" like Tim Gunn says to make a statement. (If you haven't notice I'm all about the statement pieces) I took the colors that I needed for my outfit from the colors of the feathers on the hat and layered pieces together that followed that color scheme. Mixing prints within a color scheme is also a great way to give an outfit depth because it makes the outfit more appealing to the eye. 

Hat: American Eagle (Winter 2013) $8
Sweater: Rainbow (Winter 2012) $14
V-Neck: Styles for Less (Fall 2012)  $8
Tank Top: Styles for Less (Fall 2011) $6
Necklace: Forever 21 (Old) $5
Jeans: Styles for Less (Spring 2012) $20
Shoes: Express (Fall 2010) $15 
Sunglasses: Styles for Less (Winter 2013) $6 
Bag: Aldo (Summer 2012) $35

Total: $117

(Only so high because of the staple pieces, once those are already in your wardrobe then the cost for an outfit automatically drops.)

Casual Fall

Leg warmers are back! Which make me happy because they add another layer to any fall look, fall fashion is all about the layers so the more layers the better. Normally I am against wearing heels at school but I think the heels give this casual outfit a sexy twist and those boots are the most comfortable boots I have ever worn. (Thanks Mom for the perfect Christmas gift!) I am obsessed with the cheetah print and the colors are purrfect for fall! I tied the scarf this way because my shirt has a collar and I wanted to show off the scarf but it was too long so by knotting it  the scarf became shorter. One day I might post a blog on all the ways you can tie a scarf...one day.

Shirt: Ross (Fall 2012) $7
Jeans: Styles For Less (Winter 2012) $20
Scarf: Styles For Less (Winter 2012) $5

Risky Business

Who said you can't be sexy yet covered at the same time?  This high collared bow blouse give this look a soft romantic look. The textured high waist-ed skirt gives this outfit depth and diverts eyes up to the white top.  Pair this outfit with some killer heels and you are just too sexy for that small office space! To amp up  the sexy I gave myself a cat eye and a bold red lip to play up such a simple outfit. 

Top: Forever21 (New, Winter 2013) $15
Skirt: Modcloth (Old, Summer, 2011) $16
Shoes: Charlotte Russe (Winter 2012) $10 Clearance! 
Bag: Aldo (Summer 2012) Family Gift 

Total: $41

Rainy Monday

First day of classes is always exciting! It was raining this time so I decided to wear my cute little rain boots and go with a more casual and comfortable outfit. I love how this looks has a sailor feel to it like I can take on the rainy day! A girl in my first class today asked me if my Walmart red boots were from JCrew and I just smiled and told her yes. Goes to show you that you don't need a lot of money to look expensive.

Biker Chic

Soooo its been a hot minute since I've done a blog post and I'm sorry about that, with all the holidays and the extra hours at work its been hard to find time to take photos. I do have the best sissy in the world and she gave me a new camera for Christmas so I can take better photos if only she learns how to use it! lol I went out to dinner with some old friends and wore my new favorite pants of all time! I'm obsessing over these pleather pants! Its so edgy that I wanted to pair it with a nice sweater to  mix up the textures.  I put my hair in a sock bun (It's not the best in world but it got the job done!) to give my look a certain sophistication that I was looking for.

Sweater & Pants: Cotton On,  for $10 bucks each!
Necklace: Wet Seal, $5
Purse: Styles for Less, $25
Shoes: Express, $15
Bracelet & Earrings: Forever 21, $8 and $3

Total: $76
