This is one of my first fall looks! Some of the days this fall have been cooler, and some warmer, very “New England”, so outfits are all over the place! I am wearing my favorite trench coat in these shots. I saw this Cynthia Rowley beauty last year at TJMaxx, and knew it was a winner. The mixed media top I have on is by Olivia Moon, Mixed fabric is a huge trend right now – you see it often with leather as one of the materials. It is all over the runways, blogs, and fashion retailers (good stuff at Piperlime). The printed part of the top (zebra) is a soft, satin-like fabric, while the sleeves are a marled knit. I LOVE the combo here, this was one of those tops that you see and MUST have regardless of the price (luckily it was completely reasonable — thanks TJ’s!) When you are out shopping for fall and winter items this season, make sure to get some mixed fabric tops and/or jackets to stay on trend! Happy shopping!

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!

Thanks for reading!

I borrowed this scarf from my mom a while ago. I love the plaid pattern and colors, but it is square-shaped, so I never really knew exactly how to wear it. I recently got back from a short trip to France, where my french sister was wearing a bandana around her neck. Plaid old, classic printed bandana – with shorts, cowboy boots and a plain tee – and she was completely adorable and super trendy! So when I got back, I tried to take this french style and make it my own, and it completely worked here! I got a lot of compliments on this scarf, and it totally made this outfit… along with my new favorite booties that I scored from TJMaxx for just $35! Ankle booties are super trendy right now, and are perfect for seasonal weather like we have had lately in New England! TJ’s had a pretty good stock!

The trend of mixing prints is huge right now. I have not yet been able to master the look of mixing prints with two pieces, but the style can work with a dress like this one (and it is effortless) I got this dress last year really cheap from JCPenney, and I thought it was so ugly that it was cute… I actually refer to it as my “ugly dress”! With back to school shopping just around the corner, it may be a good trend to learn towards if you think you are daring enough to pull it off!

As you probably know by now, I love my bargains!! This entire outfit is pretty reasonably priced, especially when you take into account all of the layered items here! It is pretty trendy right now to layer necklaces as well as apparel. Since I normally wear statement necklaces, (it would be way overkill to layer those puppies) it was nice for a change to be able to work that jewelry trend here. H&M makes these jersey mini skirts for just $5.95 — not even on sale!They have tons of fun colors, and it is a very easy bottom to wear for summer. They are now making a jersey pencil version too, Old Navy actually has a bunch for pretty cheap here for more of a work-wear solution! Every other part of this outfit was not bought this year, but it’s always good when you can work in older pieces with newer styles to get more out of your wardrobe!

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!
