When in doubt, go with red! I always hear that about lipstick, but why not about an outfit?
I personally am not a huge fan of red although there is something about the color that makes you feel more confident and sexy. I recently found this bell-sleeved shirt at Nordstrom Rack, which is less than $30. At first, I thought it was a little pretentious but now I realize that it’s actually quite wearable. You can style any similar top like this with white pants, skinny jeans, pencil skirt or even over a bodycon dress. I guarantee you will love all of these looks.
Here, I am wearing these Res jeans I got at Nasty Gal last year. They are still available here for only $53 and they fit great. Finally, I am relying on my vintage Ted Baker bag to complete the outfit and voila!

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.
