Outfits Lately

I think we are finally out of what has been 20-year record low temps for us in Houston!  We had two days where it actually snowed!, but unfortunately for the kids, most of it only stuck to the roofs!  School was out for two days with a bonus day for MLK day, so it’s been 5 days of vacation with everyone starting to go stir crazy!  Not to mention the scary icy roads!  As much as we look forward to some respite from our typical hot and humid weather, this freezing weather hasn’t been all that fun! This weekend I’m hoping to nail down some of the details for Jordan’s second birthday party.  I can’t believe she will be two next month!  If you want to see what we did for her first birthday party, check out this post!

Today is Outfits Lately, a look back at recent outfits that hopefully inspires your own wardrobe!  Even though I work from home and often wear the same things on repeat, (hello, cozy pullover and High Waist Skinny Jeans !) I give myself a few minutes to get ready in the morning and that makes me feel more put together for the whole day!

OUTFIT INSPIRATION - cute outfits to inspire your wardrobe!

Casual Outfit Inspiration - dark wash jeans with white tee, cardigan and boots

Rib Trim Cardigan • V-Neck Tee • Mid Rise Skinny Jeans 0P • BootsCustomizable BagNecklace

This basic v-neck tee (Regularly $24) and cozy cardigan (on sale, under $30) will get lots of wear in your closet! ?  I featured three pair of awesome jeans in my latest Dressing Room post, and this mid rise skinny jean was one of them.  This pair is the most comparable to my AG skinny jeans (33% off) based on the fabric and stretch. The dark wash and subtle whiskering and the release hem are spot on. They are SO freaking comfortable! The material is the thicker, high quality you don’t find in the less expensive juniors jeans that we like to purchase when we’re on a budget ;). These are $99, so they aren’t outrageous.

You saw this top in the How To Organize Your Closet post, and it’s darling!  The sleeves have a fun ruffle-mesh detail and the floral print is getting me in the mood for Spring!  This top would be cute tucked into a skirt too!

Comfy cute winter outfit - jeans, striped top, suede moto jacket

Butter Soft Top • Suede Moto Jacket XS •  High Waist Jeans •  Bag •  Tassel Necklace • Coin Hoop Earrings • Boots

My favorite suede moto jacket was a great investment that I’m still glad I splurged for!  But, it is under $200 and worth every penny! The striped tunic is the softest top you’ve ever put on your body! ? Two Colors of the shirt are under $30!!

Cable Knit Sleeve Sweater XS 40% Off • Mid Rise Skinny Jeans 0P • Cognac Boots 30% Off

How fun is this yellow sweater?! After all this dreary weather we’ve had here lately, I’d say we could use a bit of sunshine in our lives! This is a better picture of the mid rise skinny jeans I showed you in the first picture! Isn’t the wash nice?!

Cozy and casual outfit- black tee, barefoot dreams cardigan and skinny jeans

High Waist Skinny Jeans 25 • TeePerfect T-Shirt BraNecklace • Cozy Cardi

These high-waist skinny jeans are next on my list of favorite jeans lately! The high waist on these jeans isn’t SO high that it’s uncomfortable, but just high enough to hold you in and make you feel secure.  They have a good bit of stretch and a nice wash, fitting TTS, but you could probably size down if you’re in between sizes.  I ordered my regular size 25 and they fit fine- they are supposed to be crop, but on 5’1 me, they are all the way to my ankles. But I like to cuff mine at the ankle anyway.  And they’re a deal at under $65!

But, all hands up for the cozy cardi!  It’s one of my favorite purchases of 2017 and going strong into 2018!

pink sweater with brocade skirt and gold accessories

Sweater XS • Skirt XS • Shoes • Necklace • Bangle • Watch • Earrings

I fell in love with this bright pink sweater as soon as I saw it in person! It’s a thick, cable knit, so it will definitely keep you warm! It comes in 9 different colors and looks great with jeans too!  The A-Line style of this skirt makes it comfortable and casual, but the brocade finish makes it really stylish and even fancy.  It doesn’t come in petite sizes, so this XS hits me just above the knee.

If you’ve been lusting after these cognac booties, they are 30% off now! I love the v-notch in the front for making your legs look long and lean and the color of the boots goes with everything!

I might actually be able to wear this skirt again now that we’re out of the frigid temps! It’s a pretty shade of blush pink in corduroy, but going fast!

Oh my word, that day we went to Astros Fan Fest was freaking cold!!!  But, I will say, my top was warm and toasty in this cozy pullover and The North Face jacket. I’ve had this jacket for years and originally bought it to go skiing and it was lasted that long!  If you need a warm coat, you cannot go wrong with The North Face!

This cozy, super soft pullover keeps going in and out of stock, so I hope it’s there for you!  It’s really warm and the cowl neck is perfectly slouchy, with a small hole for your headphones. I also like how the front has a criss-cross shape!  And y’all know I’m all about the high-waist leggings!  Especially like the pattern on this pair!
