Thrifted Gear

I'm not a huge thrifter, but I like to thrift here and again. If you go often enough you can truly find some jewels. So when I was charged to wear some variation of pink, red, white, and black to sing in the choir on Sunday I dusted off some of my thrifted pieces that I obtained from Goodwill to create a polished look. I know what you're thinking that's not just pink or red. But rules are meant to be broken ;)

Like I mentioned before I got my jacket and skirt through thrifting. I put this outfit together by toning down my undershirt to let the jacket do the talking. The jacket is a little big (think boyfriend blazer), so I grabbed a belt to cinch the waist. I grabbed my favorite platform heels and my black clutch to finish off the look.

Outfit Details: Blazer (Goodwill), Skirt (Goodwill), Long - Sleeve Black Shirt (Walmart), Platforms (Forever 21), Rope converted into Belt (Walmart), Clutch (Forever 21), Sunnies (Aldo)

My advice to you...if you've never checked out a thrift store DEFINITELY do so! It's amazing what you can find in there. Happy thrifting and happy hump day :)

His Pants, Her Swag - Day vs. Night

Last Thursday, I was getting up to run some errands and I had no clue what to wear. As I was looking through my rack of clothes I ran across my husband's side of the closet and grabbed his khaki cargo pants. I tried them on, and to my surprise they fit really cute. So that was the foundation of my outfit.

I took my husbands cargo pants, a leather tee, denim jacket with J's on my feet *in my Miley Cyrus voice* and rocked my signature bold red lip to run some errands. That night my husband and I attended a marriage "Date Night" at our church. We learned quite a bit to help keep the fire in our marriage. I exchanged the J's for my cute platforms, and added a blazer to pull the look from day to night!

All I had to do was  change a couple items and wallah, I had a perfect "date night" outfit.

Outfit Details: DAY - Men's Cargo Pants (Rocawear Outlet), Leather Tee (Off the Fifth), Denim Jacket (Forever 21), J's (Foot Locker) NIGHT - Men's Cargo Pants (Rocawear Outlet), Leather Tee (Off the Fifth), Platforms (Forever 21), Blazer (H&M)

Happy Monday Lovelies! Make it a productive day :)

These Boots Were Made for Walking

The last time I was home, my aunt showered me with some pretty awesome gifts. On the extensive list were these awesome rustic, lace - up, over the knee boots. When I saw the boots, I fell in love. Not only are do they have a unique color, and chic style; they are also super comfortable! So I knew I wanted to put them into rotation. I was able to do so this past Sunday. Want to see the entire look? Check below!

We've had some pretty bipolar weather here in GA as of late. From snow/ice, to rain, to complete sunshine, the weather channel is your best friend. Sunday, it was a little cool so I decided to throw on my fav faux fur vest, a black thrifted pencil skirt, my oxblood button up, and these awesome boots.

Outfit Details: Faux Fur Vest (Forever 21), Oxblood Button Up (Forever 21), Thrifted Pencil Skirt (Goodwill), Rustic Lace Up Boots (Gifted), Wet & Wild Lipstick (CVS), MK Watch (Macy's)

Happy Hump Day!

Pretty in a Pink Blazer

Hey there beautiful people. I hope you had an awesome Valentine's Day/All - Star Weekend :) I know I did! Me and the hubby went to an early Valentine's Day dinner on Friday, and chilled the rest of the evening watching the NBA All - Star festivities. It was cool to kick it with the Mr., we always have a bunch of laughs!!! Since we had a pretty chill dinner, I didn't want to get "overdressed." As I was perusing Polyvore to get some inspiration, I ran across this look and thought it would be the perfect Valentine's Day dinner outfit. Who doesn't love a pink blazer?

Here's the look I ran across. Gorg right?

This look is casual yet bold with the hot pink blazer. I knew I had the perfect pink blazer in the closet , that would make the awesome base for this outfit. I paired it with my black "A" sweatshirt, a collared white button up, some distressed jeans, my lace - up booties, and a statement necklace. The outfit came together wonderfully. I love how the pink blazer pops. It gives the outfit an unexpected element.

Me and the hubster all smiles!

Outfit Details: Blazer (H&M), "A" Sweatshirt (Forever 21), White Button Up (Old Navy), Distressed Jeans (TJ Maxx), Lace Up Booties (Charlotte Russe), Statement Necklace (Charlotte Russe), Sunnies (H&M), Lip Color (M.A.C - Heroine).  

I hope you all have a great start to your week! *Happy Monday*
