Dressed up casual // Style Me Wednesday

link-up, outfits comment

Rediscovering old items in your closet is the best feeling sometimes. I found this quilted sweater I bought a few years ago and now recall why I bought it – the quality is great and the quilt adds a lot of visual interest. Sadly, it’s no longer available but I did find this one that also has a side zip feature. Perfect athletisure look!

Monthly budget finds under $50

budget finds, deals comment

January 2017 monthly budget finds | see all the finds at www.shoppingmycloset.com

Retailers are clearing out their inventory right now, and there are so many great wallet-friendly finds as a result. If you’ve been waiting out for a great price, now is the time to buy!

RUFFLE FRONT BLOUSE: I love this top, especially in the navy color. It’s perfect for adding a little something to your work look (think wide leg pants) without being over-the-top but great to wear to a fun event (think midi skirt).

TORY BURCH PHONE CASE: I’m always looking to change out my phone case for something fun but also durable. This one is perfect (50% off helps!) with the silicone bumper but also is great with the classic Tory Burch logo.

ROLL TAB BLOUSE {comes in 5 colors}: This is one of closet staples. I bought this during Nordstrom’s anniversary sale and have not regretted it. The top is versatile – I’ve worn it to just about any event possible! I own this in the nude color and just purchased the olive green.

PINK TIE CUFF SHIRTDRESS {50% off}: Last year’s hottest trend was the tie detail whether it be on the front, back, sides, or sleeves and it’s still running strong. Grab this adorable pink dress to add to your collection and create different looks with simply adjusting how you tie the cuff (one time like the photo, or tie it into a bow!).

LEOPARD PRINT HEEL: A girl can never have too many shoes and it should also include a leopard print. can you belive this chic heel is under $20? I used to question if I could pull off the leopard print but since I’ve tried them out, I haven’t looked back. Treat it like a neutral and you can pair it with just about anything!

GOLD METALLIC FLATS: A pair of metallic flats can be an instant outfit changer. Add a little bit of shimmer and fun to a look with these ballet flats that are only $16!

VELVET SLIP DRESS: What better way to combine the velvet and slip dress trend by having it in one? Add a turtleneck or white tee underneath to wear it during the colder weather.

ROSE GOLD CLUTCH {also, comes in silver}: I’m loving anything rose gold and this clutch doesn’t disappoint. Add a bow to it, and I’m sold!

DOUBLE BREASTED PEACOAT {comes in 4 colors}: Peacoats are my favorite during the colder months and this one is such a classic. At under $40, I might order it in more than one color…

Happy Thanksgiving eve, friends! Hoping you all have plans to spend time with friends and family and also, stuff yourself silly!

I have a few family gatherings that I’ll be attending and what better way to stay comfortable and warm than in this beautiful sweater? I love the asymmetrical hem, multi-directional ribbing, and the bold gold buttons (design also comes in a poncho and dress). There’s something unique about the combination of navy and gold which probably is why I love this sweater so much. I paired it with white jeans to offset the navy and black colors but it would also work if paired with a white button down or tee underneath (perhaps, also an asymmetrical one that cuts in the opposing direction).

P.S. Don’t forget to come back during the Thanksgiving holiday stretch – I’ll be posting sales and promo codes for you to take advantage of!

P.P.S Today’s the last day for the $270 Nordstrom giveaway – have you entered?
