Hi Friends,

This is the first new post of 2018! Last week, I took some time off to get myself together. I had to figure out what is going to be on the schedule this year. Now that I am back, I would love to hear about how your new year is so far.

Typically, I try to avoid trendy trends. I have more of a classic style and wearing pieces that can stand the test of time is what I gravitate to. One of my pet peeves is when I have a trendy item that I love but I find that I don’t wear it as often because I know it is out of style. It makes me feel like a looser when I know the look has been laid to rest and I am still rocking it. I know it doesn’t matter and fashion is subjective but I’m honest.

One day I went browsing through TJ Maxx and came across them gem. It looked simple enough and I thought to myself it is inexpensive enough that when I am over there look I won’t feel like I’ve wasted my money. Bold sleeve has been on trend for so long I decided to give it a whirl.  I have to say, I have worn this top at least three times before it even made it to the blog. It goes with everything and it is warm on these crazy cold days.

I love shopping at TJ Maxx for a few reasons. First, when you have a little extra time on your hands it is great to get lost looking for all kinds of things you probably don’t need. Second, you can find great things at a great price. What more do you need?

Happy Tuesday!

A major trend right now is bold sleeves, everywhere you look there is a large puff sleeve, or flutter sleeve, or even a large ruffle on the shoulder. Oh wait, even off the shoulder shirts (I forgot about that).  Nonetheless, sleeves are in. Okay, I am being honest, I am not super into the trend 100%.  I like it but not to sure how it fits with my style. I guess I am just different.

Here is a tip- If you are not sure about a trend, try it in a modest way. That is what I did here. The sleeves are not crazy overwhelming but they are still on trend. This will actually be super cute with a pair of shorts as well.

Casual Wear

This is by far one of my favorites outfits I have worn in some time. I love how comfortable it is! On the weekends I spend much of my time running errands and getting stuff done! One of my favorite trends right now is the athleisure trend. I love it. I am a huge sweatpants and hoodie girl. I played sports all throughout high school and I love to be comfortable. Sneakers… give me life! I believe I may have mentioned before, I have been having foot problems and since I have been wearing sneakers more, my foot have gotten 90% better!

Happy Tuesday!

Do you ever have those weeks where you know you should be on vacation! That is how my week has started. Most likely it is because of daylight savings time, all and all I have been feeling like I need a vacation. Anyways.. How cute are these shoes? I found them in the clearance section at Macy’s many years ago and I look forward to wearing these gems every fall. They are so comfortable, and even though they are combat books they have a feminine flair (at least to me). Whenever I wear them, it make me feel like my outfit has an edge to it. I like that. I found this jacket for an amazing price at TJ Maxx, a few weeks back. I needed a new leather jacket and this one may have come with a hood, but it was not with the jacket and they marked it down to a discounted price. I love it when that happens.

Happy Thursday Friends,

I hope you are all having a great week! As we are coming up on this long weekend, I would love to know what you all have planned. As for me, I am hoping that I will get a chance to rest. I have been on the go for about two weeks now, and so looking forward to a day to relax. I will let you all know how that turns out next week.

On to the outfit… I found this kimino a few years ago in T.J. Maxx, this may actually be the first time I have ever worn it. It is so comfortable, and easy-my favorite look. I like to pair flowy tops with a sleek tank. These jeans! They may be my favorite jeans ever! I wear them all the time, I got them about three years ago from American Eagle, guess what, they have a very similar pair ON SALE!!!!

Have a great weekend!
