Things My Money Can Buy

Fall

Count the ways…

Oversized shirts are so in style now! I recently purchased an oversized shirt form Zara and I loved it. I wasn’t sure how to wear it and played around with a few different ways.

 I think a common problem with oversized shirts is their “oversized” and sometimes not the most flattering.  I tried the off the shoulder look which I don’t think is practical for me if I’m out and about. 

My favorite was actually rolling up the sleeves which made it a little puffy but I liked it. How are you wearing this trend?!?

Leather. Bag. Perfection.

A few months ago, leather bag company Mahi Leather reached out to do a post about one of their leather bags of my choice.  I was really excited because I’ve never heard of the company and I’m always looking for a great “everyday” bag.

With that said, I was impressed by the leather quality of the bag.  I wanted to wear the bag for a few months prior to doing a post to really understand the quality of the tote.  The leather is durable, I carry it almost everyday and it compliments any outfit that I’m wearing.

I personally selected The Classic Tote in vintage brown.  The bag is priced at $131.32 – I think it’s an affordable price for a bag that you will wear everyday but it’s depends on your personal budget.

Overall, I’m extremely satisfied with my beautiful tote. Mahi Leather has so many different bag options – totes, duffles, satchels and more!  Check out the website!

The Leather Mini! 

The beauty of the leather mini skirt is versatility.  With so many ranges of colors and styles you have lots of options with this closet staple.   This look can be dressed a bit casual or dressed up – whichever you prefer, you can’t go wrong! 😉  

You can add a pair of flats for a more casual look or a nice pair of heels for a more dressed up look.  I chose to pair this mustard yellow Zara leather mini skirt with a blouse and a pair of booties.   This look was super affordable – faux leather skirt is priced at $29 currently on Zara.com.

OTK! 👍🏾 or 👎🏾? 

Over the knee boots! Yes, that’s OTK abbreviated which I recently learned. 😉 During the massive post Thanksgiving sale, I came across these lovely pair of boots from Aldo’s shoes.   Ladies, don’t be afraid to pull this look off!  I wanted to share a quick review on these babies. 

Pros: super comfy, heel is not too high (for me), can be worn with multiple outfits and easy to slip on and off.  They will definitely keep you warm! 

Cons:  Boots are a bit tight around the calf  area but manageable. 

Overall, these boots were a steal. They are currently on the website at 50% discount. I opted to go with a black boot because it goes with so many things and most certainly makes me look a little bit longer. 
Here’s the link to take a look at the boots!

A Little Polka Dotty….👙

Polka dots are one of the most versatile trends. They can be very fun with a retro look on a dress or matched with another print for a “mixed prints” look. 

The key to wearing polka dots without looking like a child is fairly simple…
1.  Wear polka dot prints thatnare fairly small. 
2.  Make sure your look is modern by pairing your polka dots with jeans, leather skirt or a blazer. 

H&M and ASOS has some really great polka dot shirts!  All under $40.  
Check out my modern polka dot look below! 

Outfit Details:

Jacket | H&M: Under $40 

Shirt | H&M: Under $20 

Jeans | Armani Exchange:  Under $60 (sale item)

Must Haves For An Edgy Look! 

Depending on my mood, sometimes I want to be a little edgy/rock Chic. It gives me a sense of freedom and makes me feel like somewhat of a badass. (LoL). 

I believe there’s a few essential items needed in order to achieve the “edgy” look. Check out my four items below!!! 

1.  Black or Dark Blue Denim Skinny Jeans – must fit at the ankle 

2.  Boots – I prefer just above the ankle but not so much at the knee. DSW has great selections. 

3. Leather Jacket – Must be cropped. I found the perfect Leather Moto Jacket from Zara for just under $50. Forever21 also has great options for under $50 as well. 

4. Sunglasses – My personal choice are aviators. I love RayBans! Overstock.com and Nordstrom Rack has great deals for under $120. If you’re not looking to spend that amount…Walmart, Target and Urban Outfitters typically have a great selection as well. 

There you have it ladies! Take a look below of my rocker/ edgy Chic outfit below. 

Outfit Details:  

1. Moto Jacket | Zara: Under $50 

2.  Graphic Sweatshirt | Forever21: Under $20 

3. Jeans | UrbanOutfitters: Under $40 

4. Boots | Steve Madden by way of DSW: Under $50

Recently I’ve seen such great deals on tops at H&M under $20 (see below). 

  I’ve also discovered a new favorite item! Satin Jogger Pants….They are so comfortable and in my opinion can be worn to the office or out on the town.   I found the pair below at Zara for just under $20.   Express and Nordstrom Rack also has great deals on their website as well. 

If you’re looking for a cute, comfortable and chic item. Go get a pair of satin joggers!

One Top >>Two Looks 

I’m a firm believer in getting the best value from the clothing I purchase. So sometimes I like to purchase tops that I can wear to the office but also can wear to happy hour, dinner date etc…. 

It’s very simple to turn a work outfit to a date night outfit. You can simple change to jeans or maybe put on a different pair of heels. 

This top is by one of my favorites from Zara I purchased about a year ago. It’s definitely more for the fall/winter because of the wool material.  The details I just love! 

Take a look below on how I turned the work outfit to a happy hour/date night outfit. 

Top | Zara – Under $40 

Jeans  | Zara – Under $30 

Oversized clutch  | Forever21 – $20
