This is what I wore for my high school reunion this past weekend. When I was trying to figure out what I’d be wearing, my ultimate goal was to feel fantastic while still wearing something very reminiscent to my typical style. I went through my limited wardrobe and scoped out the situation. Peplum was an obvious choice as its a silhouette that has never failed me. First half, check! The bottom half of the ensemble was a little harder to figure out. I was originally going to pair this peplum with the faux leather skirt from Savers (last seen here) but loved the fun hem and quilted pattern of this little number. After a quick look in the mirror I was certain that this pairing was exactly what I was going for. A little edge, a lot of sass and some definite attitude (without over doing it, of course)

It was such a surreal experience to see the familiar faces of my youth, with a little more age and wisdom behind their eyes, was strange. We are all adults now. It was so great to chat and catch up with people, I had such an amazing time. Excited for the 20th!

Deal or No Deal

photo IMG_7638_zpsf038abb4.jpg

If you read last weeks style post then you are well aware of the awesome challenge Savers presented me with. They challenged me to put together a fall inspired look with $60 that they graciously provided. The mission was obviously accepted and you might have seen that I kind of knocked it outta the park, IMHO;) 

Because I had some extra cash to spend after calculating the price of the first look I decided to challenge myself to score a second look with fall trends as the inspiration. Here is the resulting look – jewel toned suede mini, another worn-in graphic tee, flat booties with delicate cutouts and the most perfect vintage Polo Ralph Lauren plaid cross-body bag my little eyes ever did see. This challenge has taught me two thing: 1) I am seriously having a graphic tee moment for fall and 2) I’m a total sucker for a good deal!

The Last Hurrah

 photo IMG_7604_zps1b4600ee.jpg

During the packing and moving process I accidentally packed away this romper in a box that is now in storage. Total fail on my end, huh? Why I packed it away is beyond me. Wouldn’t this romper do well in the Fall with some sheer tights, booties and some major layers? Ah, I’m so upset with myself!?! Well at least for it’s last hurrah pairing it with my trusty chambray for our travel day back home from San Francisco was a no brainer. Comfort and style. BOOM!

Savers Look for Less Challenge

photo IMG_7661_zpsbe378829.jpg

Fall, it seems to be everyone’s favorite season. Especially bloggers. What’s not to love? The crisp, cool air, the seasonal festivities, and let’s not forget the Fall fashion! There’s just something about Fall fashion trends that make it better than all the rest. Leather, plaid, deep, rich jewel tones - it all just seems so luxurious. But when many think luxury they think big bucks and I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way.

A couple weeks back I got contacted by the generous folks over at Savers. You know Savers, ‘Good deeds. Great deals’. Well they challenged me to style up a Fall look with items found at one of their almost 350 locations with the stipulation to only use $60. Y’all know how I love a good thrift session and I had just published my tips on being thrifty while shopping secondhand, so I jumped at the chance to get in on the thrifted action!

While I browsed the store, moving from rack to rack of clothes, accessories, shoes, furniture and housewares I realized I was in for quite a challenge. It wasn’t that I wouldn’t have enough dough to pull off a chic and savvy look for under $60, my challenge was that I didn’t have a plan of attack. So I thought about Fall and all of my favorite seasonal trends and figured I’d pull an outfit together that captured all of autumns talked about fashions. Not only did I successfully pull off a super cute look appropriate for the season but I was able to put together TWO looks for under $45! (If you’ve got a Super Savers Club card and shop on Fridays it’s an additional percentage off your goods! #SaversfortheWin)

In my first look I incorporated many of my favorite fall trends – I’ve got your leather, your weathered graphic tee, a felt wide brim fedora, tall boots, and a simple, yet chic, cross-body bag. A winning combination of effortless/cool if you ask me;) Make sure to come back next week to see the second look I was able to score at Savers for $45!

Pro Tip – Never underestimate the selection of great pieces in the men’s department. I scored both the graphic tees and the fedora in the men’s section of the store!
