Outfit Of The Day - How To Layer Affordable Clothing




Today on a little old trip to the Mayo for some poking and prodding, I wore the outfit below.  I'm being forced to learn that you can put together a really fantastic outfit on a budget.  This one is very affordable.

The first thing you have to know is Old Navy has some awesome in style affordable clothes.  They have talls on line.  TALLS IN SHIRTS AND DRESSES, people!!!!  How often can you find tall shirts?  Like never!!!  That turned me into an Old Navy lover for life.  This sweater in grey and the grey and white dress come from Old Navy.  I bought them off the rack so they're not talls, but the length is fine.  I probably could have used a tall in the dress but I needed it now.  So there ya go.  The list price is $39.00 but like I said, there's always a sale.  Sometimes it's better online and sometimes in the store so watch.  The dress has a list price of $29.94 and see above reference what I paid.

I love this necklace!  I got it at Patty's Closet in Anchorage for just $12!!  I'm going to show you this store in a post soon and tell you why you have to shop there!

I have to tell you, I don't like the folds I got from the neck fusion.  I understand why it's there now because I read the surgeon's notes today.   Yikes, it was a terrible mess after I fell on the ice.  Wow!  So, ew, I was in a neck brace for almost nine months, the hard collar kind...well, if you're a regular reader, you saw it before, all blingy and pretty.  But this time, my neck didn't turn out pretty.  Anyway....UGH!

The belt is silvered and is from a pair of shorts I got at Kohl's a few years ago.  I always take the belts out and put them aside.  LISTEN UP!!!  If you get some belt or accessory on a clothing item that you're not going to use at the time, just set it aside because you never know when it's going to be the piece that you need to finish off your outfit.  Am I right or am I right????

The leggings are from Fred Meyer.  Again, if you're in the PNW, you know how often things go on sale and about the weekly coupons.  It pays to wait, if you can, until your item is in the sale group unless you need it that night.  If you're in the Lower 48 and Hawaii, you can find the same leggings at the Nordstrom Rack.  They're called Legend and they're under $10 on sale at both places.  Normal price at Fred Meyer is $14.

And the boots >>>>> CRAZY SALE!!!  $60 on the Nordstrom Rack Sale side of the Nordstrom website.  I thought the original price was great, but $60!?!?!?!?!  Embellished with interest at the ankle and calf.  Take a look on the website and you can turn the boot around to see the detail.  Fantastic!!  And super duper comfortable.  I have two colors that I bought at full price.  Oh yes I did.

Those are the deets of this layered outfit.  Many of these items will be worn over and over during my time out of state.  Ok all of them.  You need them too!!!  The boots are almost sold out.  Get them if you can!!

How are you wearing your layers at this time of year?

(psst!  You'll be seeing me wearing makeup again soon!!!  oh, ugh, I know, right?  My latex blisters are almost healed after five months but I have a few that are still pretty deep.  *fingers crossed*  Until then, I will play with color via fashion.  But guess what?  I wore eyeshadow today!!!  WOOT!!!)

JLo Skinny Jeans With Steve Madden Moto Boots - Quick View

Affiliate Link

I adore my Steve Madden Monicaa Boots purchased from Nordstrom.  I had wanted to get these initially during the Anniversary Sale but my husband vetoed them.  What does he know?  These are so in style right now and who doesn't love a moto boot with a little bling?

Taking a very uncharacteristic route, I waited for them to go on sale again and when they did, ($127.26), I snapped them up.  They also have taupe, which is selling quicker.  Since my husband retired, I'm trying so hard to only have the one pair.  What do you think?  Taupe, too?

The first time I saw the Jennifer Lopez Embellished Skinny Jeans at Kohl's, I pictured them with these boots.  They are on clearance for a great price!!!  They fit true to size and you need them.  Just trust me and get them.  Hurry.  Clearance.  I couldn't find my size in the store so I ordered online and Kohl's ships quickly!!!

Once again....happy camper!  Just trust me and buy these jeans.  They do run really long, (good for me being 5'8"), but stick them in jeans and who's going to know?  At just $24, I'm tempted to get a back up pair.  I love them so much.

Maybe I can get my family to help me get you a better picture?  Maybe? I have picked up several other styles of boots at Hautelook.com, a website owned by Nordstrom that has incredible deals.  If you use my links, it would make me incredibly happy.  (See my disclosure policy for more information).

Are you rocking boots and skinny jeans this fall?  Or winter?  What are your go-to styles?

Really Excited About My First Beauty Purchase At Kohl's - The Lorac Pro Palette!!!

I was pretty happy when I heard Kohl's was going to be bringing in beauty products. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I never expected to find Lorac Cosmetics!!! Color me super happy! My first Kohl's beauty purchase is the Lorac Pro Palette. I had been frustrated because it was sold out online at Sephora, so yay Kohls for helping me to secure my most desired!!!

Jennifer Lopez Collection For Kohls Sweatshirt

So I was at Kohls and found this great embellished sweatshirt in the JLo Collection. I often find her items to be a bit boxy on me. They seem to be built for people who are short waisted like she is. I'm not. SO not. But I love this sweatshirt and desided to ask my Instagram friends their opinion.

If you need to make a decision in a hurry, what do you do? Go to the internet!!!

This is the front side...It's not really long in front, coming right to the waist line, but could be matched with a long tank, like what I was wearing that day.

And the back is completely different than expected!  It has a kind of sweeping polyester type of fabric that will create a great flow as you walk.

I loved this, but it just wasn't really long enough for me.  In the end, I was able to get a tall length sweatshirt that was similar from Old Navy.  So while I mourned this sweater/sweatshirt, it all worked out in the end.
