Over the past couple of weeks I have asked my followers to send me some new ideas to talk about on my blog. Chanda recently asked to see “multiple ways to wear affordable work clothes.” So thank you Chanda for the great blog idea…I hope you enjoy what I came up with!

This navy blue dress is from Forever 21 and I paid $24 for it. I love this dress because it is comfortable and stylish for various looks you are going for. I really think it’s important to have dresses like this in your wardrobe because you can tailor different looks around it; whether it is for work or a Spring training game!

This first work look is layered with a vintage maroon motorcycle jacket, a statement piece copper necklace and a pair of black wedges. I love pairing navy with warm colors like maroon and deep plum purples; in my opinion that is when the navy color really stands out. This is more of a “casual,” work look but most women can get away with this look if you pair a light button-up neutral color sweater with it under the jacket!

Like I say “always add statement pieces before you walk out of the door.” It can truly make your entire outfit pop, like the picture shown above.

My next look is more of a business casual office look. I layered a thin stripe white and navy button up under the dress to give the look a different feel.

I also wanted to accessorize this outfit up with a pearl necklace, cluster diamond earrings and a tan belt. If this is too much for you, then I would just choose the jewelry or belt and not do both 🙂

There are days when I wake up and all I want to do is wear my pajamas all day while I’m running errands. But I know that I can’t do that, so I came up with the next best outfit (that was super comfy) which included a pair of black leggings, a black button up, a turquoise scarf and a pair of black Tory Burch flats (sorry I forgot to take a picture of the outfit).
Earlier this week I asked my Facebook friends for some blog ideas and one of my good friends Ann, gave me a great idea! Which brings me to my blog topic today…..Scarf Versatility!

These are 2 of my favorite scarves for Spring. The coral round scarf is from Royal BOWTiQUE and the blue and white floral scarf is from Kohls! Hope you enjoy my blog video on ways to wear these beauties!

Spring is fast approaching and it is time to start purchasing your Spring Gear! One of my favorite places to shop online is at Royal BOWTiQUE. This online BOWTiQUE is locally owned and operated, which makes me like it even more! Kylie Wright does a phenomenal job of picking all the right pieces and fabrics for her various collections.

This gold coral necklace is one of my favorites, from her collection. Corals and gold are going to be very popular this Spring!

This mint and gold necklace is a perfect statement piece to dress up a casual basic knit with a pair of jeans!

Scarves are my new best friend. I never really wore scarves until I found this beauty. Stay tuned for various ways to wear this piece!

Style on Ladies!

I always look forward to the 3rd week of every month…why you ask? That means my subscriptions to: Glamour, Baazar, Vogue, Elle and In Style come in the mail. I like to dissect each magazine from beginning to end on Saturday mornings (and take notes of course) on fun “do it yourself” ideas around the home, recipes and of course THE FASHION!


Magazines like Baazar inspire me to dress in a way that expresses “Me!” I love bold prints with stripes and neon colors with nude but I can’t buy everything I see in the magazines (I don’t buy the name brands; I find everything at a discounted price). So my magazine dreamin, inspired me to write this blog post today! Must have in my closet and yours:

1. A black boyfriend blazer is a must have in your closet! You can dress this blazer up or down. I pair up this blazer with skinny jeans and a cotton tee with some converse shoes for day wear and at night I switch the converse tennis with black pointy stilettos. I also like to wear my blazers going out with bandaged dresses or high waisted mini skirts, with boho tops tucked into the skirt.

2. A pair of dark denim skinny jeans are another essential of mine because they can be worn in any type of event; dressed up or dressed down. I like the fact that I can wear wedges, stilettos, booties and knee high boots with my skinny’s. You can also purchase skinny jeans almost anywhere; my favorite skinny’s are from:
-Wet Seal
-Guess By Marciano
-G By Guess
-Forever 21

3. A little black dress should have been #1 on my list because my little black dress has saved me at weddings, bachelorette parties, fancy dinners and cruises. Black is just an elegant color in my eyes and it can be worn at all of the events I listed above. There have been times that I just accessorized with a pair of diamond studs and my wedding ring and other times where I wore bangles and a statement piece necklace…that is all up to you!

4. A nude basic top can be worn for work or for play! I would wear this top, tucked into a high waist navy blue pencil skirt with nude pumps. Then for play I would wear pair this top with faux leather leggings with gold accessories.

5. Faux Leather Leggings will never go out of style! I love this look because no matter what you pair with these leggings; I ensure you will look and feel fabulous! I would buy these faux leggings at:
-Forever 21
-G By Guess
-Guess By Marciano
-H & M (Seasonal)
-Lauren Conrad Collection (Kohls)

6. Peep Toe Stilettos are my most worn pair of shoes in my closet. They are very versatile for any look you are going for!

7. A Gold Statement Necklace is an easy piece of jewelry that can complete your entire outfit. I would wear this necklace with any of the outfits I listed above. This necklace is $98 at Lucky.

And there you have it! The 7 essentials to a better looking closet that will make you feel fabulous!

Happy Sunday <3
