Surviving the Cold with Accessories

Red Jeans and Chambray Shirt

This winter has quite possibly been the worst. I don’t mean we’ve had the coldest temps ever or the most snowfall. I just mean the worst. As in, I’m so over it and if I could send it packing by giving up one of my favorite pairs of shoes, I might just take winter up on his offer.

Pretty much the only thing that has kept me from wearing sweats to work every day is accessories. I’m talking statement pieces, friends. It doesn’t matter if I’m wearing the same pair of jeans I’ve worn for three days in a row with the warmest sweater in my closet and a pair of wool socks. If I add a fabulous necklace or arm party I suddenly feel very pulled together.

This Aztec necklace from Ash & Willow is the perfect item for layering. I adore how the chunky chain stands its own against my chunky sweater, but I can also tell you I’ve worn this with delicate dresses and it looks great there too! And how can you beat such a great necklace for only $24!

Under $50: Date-Ready Dresses

Date Ready Dresses

Bill and I aren’t big Valentine’s Day celebrators but I do love any excuse to get dressed up! We’re planning to stay in tonight and go out to dinner tomorrow once places have cleared a bit.

I’m hoping to make it to the mall tomorrow during the day to find some work-ready clothes and  maybe snag a new dress for our date.

These five dresses are all so ready for any date and all priced under $50!

Under $50: Booties

It might be the feet of snow on the ground or it might be that I find myself being more and more practical in life the older I get but lately I’ve been drawn to booties. Short on the ankle and easy to walk in because of little to no heel, booties add casual chic style to any outfit.

Of course, next fall I might be craving something different so I don’t want to spend too much. These booties are all under $50, meaning you can grab a few pairs in different colors!

Hanes Summer Brights

My favorite thing about summer is mixing and matching bright colors in fun ways! You don’t have to worry too much about coordinating – just find your favorite pieces and try them out!

One of my latest affordable finds for bright summer items is from Hanes (yes, this post is sponsored by Hanes but I do love their comfortable, affordable items!). Hanes has a brighter, more colorful look this summer with underwear, bras and tees in on-trend patterns and vibrant hues.

Here are a few of my latest items styled together. Sorry, ladies, no undie shots on this blog! :)

The best part about Hanes’ new bright colors is how easy it is to find the perfect color you’ve been looking for!

Their #UndercoverColor locator has you select the color you love. I, of course, adore anything in hot pink! Once I selected my favorite color, it takes me to my mood board full of items specifically curated for my choice!

Stylish Deal: Tracy Reese Blouse

Remember when Target’s Nieman Marcus Holiday Collection was on sale? Yeah, well it just went on clearance!

I finally scored that beautiful Tracy Reese blouse all for myself for a grand total of $25.87 (tax and shipping included)! I’m hoping to wear it for my upcoming birthday. Depending on the weather, I’ll likely wear skinny jeans and a black blazer or a bandage skirt. I think boxy sequins is perfect for turning 25, right?
