Too many women suffer from not having time to get ready in the morning…any any mornings after they’ve gotten married and/or have children. The focus always shifts from us (me, you, baby) to them (you and baby); the Me gets lost in translation. It’s unfortunate that women have to carry all the burdens we have and are expected to look a certain way…it seems impossible…ESPECIALLY IF YOU ADD WORK INTO THE MIX.
Tiffany is wife, momma, teacher and super-saiyan. The key to adding a little spark back in her life and yours is a cute, simple wardrobe built on separates and wardrobe basics. Check out some of the looks I put together from our shopping trip that did not break the bank. I scored all of these pieces (minus bags) from consignment shopping: Escada, White House Black Market, Vince Camuto, J. Crew, Talbots, Chicos and more for less than $200! 3 pairs of pants, 2 pairs of heels, 3 necklaces and 11 tops to interchange with new and existing bottoms.
Lace is a huge trend this season and it adds a delicate feminine touch. Teacher of the Year, Kiwonda never wears white, unbeknownst to me, but looks fabulous. Just in time for spring and appropriate for several occasions and event, from weddings to work! The bell sleeves add a fun vibe to look and minimal accessories to complete the look.
Don’t be afraid to add a touch of color with heels…nude or black cold work, but these red Valentino inspired heels from her closet pair well.
Blazer, white blouse, blue jeans. Classics. Staples. Effortless. It’s my go to on Fridays (heeeeeyyyyy) and weekends. I added a pop of color on my eyes with blue shadow and an orange necklace.
Every article and item was thrifted!!! Even the $298 J Brand Jeans I snagged at a consignment shop.
One of the trends this fall are colors that tend to be seen in other seasons– blush, florals and oranges. I love orange and the different variations…definately my tones (pulls out the gold in my skin). And as you know, i’m a huge fan of jumpsuits and onesie fits, so of course when I see them in stores, I gravitate towards them. There were several different colors and I tried on the royal blue, but I have a ton of blue and was missing a super bright piece in my wardrobe. Aaaand, it was on clearance.
On “last weeks”, I’ll (try my best at 6:00 am) capture some of my best and favorite looks of the week that I wore to work, appointments or whatever I have going on.
I’ve seen many women make a simple (and drab) mistake of pulling a dress out the closet without any thought. No thought means, its too simple…simplistic without thought.
