Wearing a Cami

Cami: Express ~ Jeans: Old Navy ~ Cami: Target similar here and here ~ Shoes: Steve Madden

A cami is that perfect top that can be worn for layering under items of clothing. I would consider this is be a basic that should be in every woman’s wardrobe. Most people like to layer camis but you can also wear it on it’s own. I find them to go great with various looks. Under a cardigan, alone with jeans, or as a layering piece.

I like camis under cardigans or sweaters. In today’s post you see I am wearing my yellow cami under a camo cardigan. It adds some texture, plus it is something other than a plain tee. I recommend that if you are in the process of building your wardrobe start with a black and white cami. Of course you should always invest in your basics but there are so many places you can find basic camis. I found this yellow cami on sale here.

I like these silk texture camis as an alternative to wearing t-shirts when I have a casual outfit. I am such a jeans and t-shirt type of girl but it can get boring really quick. I encourage you to find different ways to create looks that still make you feel comfortable.

Recently, I found these amazing pants at Express. Lately,  I feel i’ve been finding some great items there.

Today, I wanted to talk to you all about how I like to shop to find the best deals. I have three super easy tips that can help you find really great things in store. Let’s hop into my tips.

  1. Do a quick walk through the entire store, and always check out the sale rack. Sometimes you can find some of the best items on the sale rack.
  2. Have an idea of what you are looking for. Lately, I’ve been in the need of pants that I could wear to work, so I focused more on that area of the store.
  3. Use the dressing room. I’ve noticed that sometimes when things are on an amazing sale they may be final sale. Before you buy make sure you try.

Chunky Turtleneck and Leather Leggings

I had been looking for leather leggings for so long. Of course I didn’t want to spend too much money on a pair of leggings. So I diligently waited for a sale to come around and I found one, at Express. I have to say, I am glad I made this purchase. A good purchase is when I wear the item over and over.

I love how the leather leggings are great to dress up or even wear with sneakers. I have a trip coming up soon and I image I will be wearing them on the flight. More on that later.

Also, I love this coat too. It is not the warmest but with the weather not being freezing lately, it has been working out for me.

Hello there!

Now if this outfit doesn’t scream summer to you I don’t know what will? I love love love this shirt. I almost paid full price for it because I loved the way it felt. Luckily, it was on discount when I got to the register. These pants are really old from Banana Republic Factory. Honestly, your clothes hold up so much better when you invest in them. I think I am on year three with these pants. It helps that I only wear them a few times each year, but they have held up very very well, through stains and parties. The shoes, I don’t even know where they are from because they are so old.
