This cute little top came from Forever21. It can be worn with jeans for more of a low-key look, or paired with a sharp necklace, heels and skinnies for a cute night out! My look here (and my styles in general) are more “going out” than laid back. I like feeling pretty and girly, and I looove heels!! Add a cute printed or patterned clutch to this look and I am ready to go!

The vest and necklaces here totally make this outfit. Imagine this look without those two items… it would be acceptable, but really nothing special. It can be that easy to add a few pieces to an ensemble to pull it all together and make it look more on trend and stylish just like that. This is a very simple way to spice up a look. As I have mentioned before, vests are super “in” this season – from crochet (like mine) to denim and more jacket-like vests – I am all about it! Adding dimension to an outfit is also slimming, Looser layers like this one can help hide some of the curves of your body you may want to conceal (hello love handles)! To see a few other ways I have styled this vest, you can see the same one here and here.

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!

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!

These boots are so much fun, they really are one of my favorites, another great find from TJMaxx a few years back. This necklace, blouse and boots I see as living in completely different categories of style, but once I tried them all together, I thought they made a nice combination. This look is very laid back, relaxed and fun. I could wear this look to work on casual Friday, out for girls night at the bar, or doing some errands around town over the weekend. Very versatile! Thanks for checking out my Outfit of the Day!

I love these boots. You can see my story behind them here! Basic tee’s whether long or short sleeve can really be dressed up with accessories. It is also pretty cheap to wear an outfit like this, as basics are usually under $10, and accessories can be cheap if you are savvy about it! Prints are very big this spring,  so make sure you have some printed tops, scarves and even bottoms if you are daring enough! I haven’t decided yet if I can pull off printed bottoms… and it is all about the confidence! I guess we will see! Have a nice weekend!
