Luxe for Less

Vest: Michael Kors via Ross $20
Sash: free with dress
Necklace: Kohls
Leggings: JCPenney
Boots: Kohls

This might be my newest favorite deal! I was so excited when I found this vest even if it was a little big for me. It works out though because I like it even better styled with the sash. I love the subtle striping and the non-typical non-Rachel Zoe color. 

I'm hosting wear*it wednesday this week. 
Here's the other faux fur girl: 

Loving Rebekah's colors and gloves, but mostly I want that vest!

Thanks for stopping by!

Loving Houndstooth

Shirt: Target: free with coupon
Scarf: Ross
Purse: Zara, gifted
Skinnies: LEI via Walmart $5
Boots: Ross $20

I love any bold black and white print because I love pattern and its perfect for adding color. This is a vacation outfit from around Christmas time. I brought neutral bottoms, colorful plain shirts and a bunch of scarfs to change up the look.

Hunter Hat

Hat: mr.shopfreak
Coat: Old Navy
Purse: Walmart, old
Boots: Ross $20

Another hat from mr. shopfreak. I bought this for "him" a while back, but looking back, I think I'm the only one who has ever worn it. It was freezing this day and I needed to stay warm since I had just been sick. Love when clothing is fashionable and functional!

Have you entered the Stella & Dot Giveaway yet? Tomorrow is the last day! 

Do you do winter hats?

Raiding mr. shopfreak

Hat: mr. shopfreak's
Vest: Charlotte Russe $5
Top: ?
Jeans: Target: free with coupon
Boots: $20 via Ross

Yay for having a husband who likes hats! Loving his winter hat, I'm sure he won't notice if it makes its way to my side of the closet. He never wears it anyway. 

Do you ever "borrow" your significant other's clothing?

Earrings: Stella & Dot c/o Ana Loukopoulos
Clutch: $10, bought on cruiseship
Bracelets: Forever 21 $4
Ring: H&M $3 with a bunch of other rings too

Stella and Dot just released their spring collection and I loved so many pieces. My favorite is the Serenity Stone Drops that I'm wearing today. A bold statement, they are big enough to stand on it's own without wearing a necklace. Love the organic shape in such a pretty shade of green.  I can't wait to wear these with a white sundress this summer!

Scaredy Spice

Sweater: JCPenney, free with coupon
Shirt: Target, free with coupon
Necklace: Target
Leggings: JCPenney $5
Earrings: c/o ShopLately

Up for discussion: 
1.  For the last day of 
Freckles in April's Winter Challenge
, we are supposed to wear something that we are scared of. I took a very literal approach with my spider necklace. I can also say that I used to stray away from wearing eyeshadow for fear of the wrong application, but now I just wear it regardless. 
2. I continue to gravitate towards shades of turquoise and teal as shown in my earrings. They have a very boho, slightly peacock vibe and I love that they aren't too heavy. They were a last minute, but perfect complement to my outfit. 
3. So proud that I remembered a detailed picture this time!

Thanks for stopping by!

ShopLately did provide the earrings to me, but my thoughts
 are 100% honest.

Greeny Tweedy

Shirt: old school
Tweed skirt: Loft, really old
Boots: Kohls
Bracelet: Target $1

Another outfit that I haven't worn in forever! I love this skirt and even
had someone come up to me at the gas station to ask where I got it. This outfit
was inspired by Kayla's Open to Interpretation challenge. Here's the inspiration pic: 

I was planning on wearing peep toes, but it was too cold. My camel cardi didn't look as 
cute with the outfit and I forgot all about my color-blocked purse. 
I'm still happy I was reunited with my tweed skirt though!

Mellow Yellow

Coat: Marshalls $20
Dress: JCPenney 
Necklace: Kohls

The challenge today was to "dress up a coat" 
Freckles in April's Winter Challenge.  So I fancied up my hair-do and did a twist in the back. It did not cross my mind to take a pic of my twist, but then again,  
I'm not the expert fashion blogger.  I do try to remember to do more detail shots, but sometimes  
I'm just trying to get one good pic in while 1) dealing with the cold and 2) making sure the 
photog is not late to school.  This time, my lovely mom was my photographer so 

it was fun to get her involved in my new hobby. 

Did you check out the other outfits?
