Cardigans are something I live in year round and this one is no exception. I love the longer length on it – pairing it with heels actually gives the illusion of being taller! This cardigan was the perfect layering piece to create an all neutral look. Simply add some different textures and lengths to create a visually interesting look while keeping the color palette neutral. An easy look to wear day or night!

Monthly budget finds under $50

deals comment

Budget finds under $50 | www.shoppingmycloset.com

During the winter months, I tend to live in neutrals. But, I am looking forward to Spring and to help make the easy transition, I’m opting for neutral pieces but appropriate for the warmer weather. Here are some budget friendly finds that can also help you make that transition:

Black wide leg pants: How cute is the belting detail? Pair it a fitted top to balance out the bottom and pointed heels to elongate the legs.

Petal chandelier earrings: these would be perfect to pair with an otherwise neutral look to dress it up.

White and black contrast shirt with embroidered collar: I’m always on the lookout for a white blouse since you can pair it with anything. The contrast piping and collar detail add some fun to the top, and gives it a more sophisticated feel.


Navy herringbone scarf
: if you’re looking for one scarf to add to your closet, this might be the one. It’s a classic look overall: blue, white, and stripes – what more can you ask for?

Black accented ankle boots: these boots are only $32 but they look so much more expensive because of the metallic accent at the toe.

Military-inspired wide leg pants: the military look is going strong and these pants are perfect. They’re under $20 and meet all the chic factors: wide leg, metallic button accents, slimming!

Black lace heels: I bought my first lace heels from Banana Republic (last see here) and fell in love! The lace detail adds so much to an outfit. Since they are only available in grey, these black ones would be a great 2nd pair for me (and not to mention, they’re under $20!)

Pink ring purse: this bag is the perfect shade to prepare for the spring season and its versatility as a handbag and crossbody make it worth the buy!

Striped hem pencil skirt: can you believe this Vince Camuto stripe pencil skirt is only $24? Perfect for a daytime look – keep it classic by pairing with a white silk or cotton button down.

I’m mentally preparing for the spring weather and what better way to do that than to add some color, namely pink, to my looks? I thought it would be fun to make an all pink look but offset it with some neutrals. Are you ready for the spring weather?

Preppy school girl uniforms, move over! Pleated skirts have made their way into the mainstream fashion world and it’s here to stay. The skirts come in a variety of iterations: skinny or wide pleats, mini or maxi length, and made of virtually any material you can think of. This season’s “it” combination is the midi length pleat skirt. They come to the knee and can be paired with just about anything: a leather (real or faux) or suede moto jacket to contrast the feminine and edgy, or an oversized sweater to winterize the look, or a tee and blazer for a fun work look. And, how about pairing them with shoes – anything is possible! Try heels, oxfords, loafers, or sneakers. A versatile skirt that will mix and match with anything in your closet – just let your creativity run wild!
