Styling Casual Classics

One of my favorite multi-purpose pieces for the season is this cargo/military vest. It was a great Marshalls find I purchased in the fall of last year. Not only a vest is a perfect item for spring, but this one is pretty comfortable for running errands on the weekend or even going to work assignments during the week. The look I’m featuring below is pretty casual. However, with a pair of stilettos, a skinny dress pant and a nice satchel, you can create a more sophisticated look.

The rest of the items included in the outfit aren’t new by any means. These COH jeans are one of my favorite ripped pairs. The price tag is surely steep, but rest assured you can find them at discounted stores like Marshalls and TJ Maxx. (I got mine for only $60 and was pretty excited about it.)

The shooties are probably the pair I get most compliments on. I snagged them on sale as well from Anthropologie, but you can find similar ones out there on Zappos.com or Nordstrom Rack.

As you can see I don’t like paying full price for anything, especially brand name items. I’ve gotten pretty savvy about it over the years. If you have any questions or are looking for something particular but can’t find it at the right price, email me and I’ll be happy to assist you with your shopping needs.

Styling a Basic T-shirt

When it comes to basics, I recommend investing in a nice pair of jeans and balancing your outfits out with affordable basics. For basic tops I rely on Target, H&M or Forever 21. These are plain tanks, T-shirts, long-sleeve shirts or turtlenecks. There’s no need to splurge on a basic top while you can style it in so many ways. In this post, I am offering a transition-to-fall look paired with a statement scarf that is my go-to accessory for the season.
