When I was throwing together my Outfit of the Day, I realized how easily it could transition to a spring outfit with some simple accessories switching.
Month: January 2014
Today and yesterday I’ve been rocking some new clothes I bought online for sale at Old Navy. They did take about 9-10 days to get to me, unfortunately, but I was just glad to get them finally.
Here’s my Outfit of the Day (OOTD), chosen to showcase the awesome new earrings I purchased at the Sawgrass Mills mall in Sunrise, FL:
The navy lace peplum shirt was another part of my awesome Christmas gift from my bestie Rikki, and the boyfriend jacket is from Old Navy, as are the metallic denim gold-toned jeans.
The shoes jewelry is from lindsay phillips designs, I love those snap-ons! The only down-side is that they do tend to snap off occasionally with rough wear, but you can easily change the look of your shoes. I have these flats in metallic brown, as well. I think metallic flats are so versatile, they can go from day-to-night so easily, and are super-comfy. I always wear shoe pads in mine for extra support and cushioning (heel health!).
My eyeshadow is a mix of navy on the lid, and brown on the crease, from the 88 Original Palette from Coastal Scents. You can purchase the palette at this link. I think it has a wide variety of shades with pretty good color pay-off.
Yesterday, the sun was shining and the weather was cool, so my husband and I packed up to do what was originally planned to be some “window shopping” at Sawgrass Mills, the largest outlet and value retail shopping destination in the United States. Little did we realize it was mega-sale time, because of the holiday weekend. We racked up for cheap!
Fashion first… love the nude wedges that make me SO TALL. I have been looking for some like these for years. They were only $25 at some shoe store that I can’t recall. The jewelry is from the Old Navy outlet, and I am obsessed with the green earrings that match the necklace. Can’t WAIT to wear them!
My Outfit of the Day (OOTD) is taking advantage of the first true cold snap of typically-sunny South Florida. Not rubbing it in, it’s just the way it is. Trust me, I’ve been longing to wear boots and scarves and jackets!

I’m obsessed with the book How to Look Expensive by Andrea Pomerantz Lustig, a former beauty editor at Glamour magazine… this book has been my go-to manual lately for elevating my look with sophistication (or, at least, attempting to).
Because I’ve been reading this book and wanting to “look expensive,” that means my hands will sport only “classy”-type nail polish shades– more natural colors than the hot pinks and tangerines I love. Those bright shades are relegated to only my toes for now!
