printed pant inspiration

This was my inspiration for this look. I changed it around a little and made it my own by adding the necklace, scarf, and the pop of color with my favorite clutch. The idea of mixing the printed pant with a beige top and white tank came from this stylist! Rachel Parcell of Pink Peonies has amazing style and is one of my favorite bloggers. She is 100% someone to follow for inspiration! The weather here in New England is getting a little chilly, so I had to go with a bootie rather than heels like she paired the look with, but I think I actually prefer my look!

Doubles as a vest!

So this was the first time I decided to unbutton this shirt and wear it as a vest… I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner, but now I may need to do a once-over of my closet and see what else I can wear this way as well! I love this top, and I get a lot of compliments every time I wear it! American Rag really has some great stuff, you can find it in the Junior’s section at Macy’s for pretty decent prices. There are a lot of really cute details in this shirt – the tie back, the cute floral print and little pleating detail shown in the close-up photo. It’s really a very simple outfit, but worked for a sticky humid day in Massachusetts! Vests, layers and overshirts are all very popular this year, so a tip – take a closer look through your closet at your button ups, tanks and tee’s, because some may be able to double as a vest! This is a great way to save money and get more wear out of the clothes you already own!

Just before our photo shoot we were crossing over the bridge in the park, and we came across a family of Swans with their adorable ducklings! We had to stop on this gorgeous day and admire the beauty of this picturesque scene laid out right in front of us, it was truly amazing… not something you see every day. I figured I would add one of the photos to help set the mood so maybe you could see the beauty in what we happen to come across. 🙂

I get a lot of compliments on this top when I wear it. It has a great open back detail that is so fun and different. Someone once old me when I was wearing this outfit that I “looked like I came right out of a magazine spread”, and I will forever love this outfit because of that! As I have said before, animal prints (and prints in general) are very on trend right now, so make sure you have at least one item that has a good pattern. It is the type of print that will never really go out of style, so it can almost be considered a staple piece to have at least one item. If you are a little nervous to go full on print with a blouse or pants, it is always fun to add animal print shoes, bags, even jewelry… just make sure NOT to wear them all together – one piece at a time please!! I know I have my share of all of the above! 🙂

Thanks for reading! Happy Hump day!

Yellow skinny jeans are the ultimate summer pants! There are SO many shades of yellow running around this year, from the neon highlighter skinnies to more of a mustard/gold tone. The colors make you look tan whatever shade you decide to purchase, and the color is so light and fun for the sunny summer months! I do wear these yellow pants often, but really like so many other shades that I see and want — like the neon tones.  I try to restrain… one pair of yellow pants should be enough… for now at least! I try my best to shop smart and not buy things I basically already have, but maybe next year I will find a pair that has a little more difference in it!

I have been wanting these shoes for a while, and trying to figure out how to not pay full price for them (Converse never go on sale!) … then came my birthday coupons from DSW! These are the shoes I just got from DSW last weekend for $4.95! I had $40 in coupons saved and stacked up… now that’s how to save!!! I was so excited, sometimes it’s the little things in life, and it made my weekend! The slub-knit style of this tank is pretty on trend. Different shades of heathers (grey tones) are all over the market right now, lots of good, really different shades of grey to give your fabrics a modern twist!

Cardigan // Old Navy (on sale!)

It’s almost May! The weather is finally starting to turn around and it’s getting warmer outside! I got this knit top on sale at Lucky a few years ago. I never wore it that much back then, but I seem to like and wear it more now then when I bought it! (Glad I never got rid of this one)! I am pretty good at getting rid of clothes I don’t wear anymore. I try to stick by a rule – if I haven’t worn something for an entire season, it is time to get rid of it!! Every now and then there are some items I cannot part with, but I try to think of it this way, “if I get rid of this, it makes room for something new”, which usually gives me the kick in the butt I need to move on! Nothing like a good winter clothing clean-out and getting out my summer clothes!

Top // Lucky Brand (old), Cute here

Layering Tank // Aeropostale

Monday, February 11th

2-11-2013I was actually really sick this day, and was going to change into some comfy Ugg boots after this photo, but after seeing the boots and sweater together, I had to stay dressed as is. I picked up this sweater 2 weeks ago on sale at the Gap for only $8. (SCORE!) It is very casual, so I think putting it with heels really helped to amp it up a little.

Outfit Info:

Sweater // Gap (on sale!), Similar here, cute solid version here

Tank Top // Aeropostale (I wear one almost every day, Great deal!)

Legging Jeans // Express

Boots // Co. unknown (from Off Broadway shoe), Similar here and here

Scarf // (old) H&M, Similar here

Earrings // Similar

Bracelet // Cape Cod (wear this every day!)

Headband // CVS (easy and cheap!)
