OOTD: Wallet Friendly Friday

Happy Friday Beauties!!!

It’s finally here… The weekend is upon us and there is so much to be happy about! With fall in full swing now, I figured what better way to do this week’s Wallet Friendly Friday, than with an amazing sweater and boot combination that is perfect for any day, and also won’t break the bank! As I may have mentioned a few time… (hehe) sweaters and boots are my favorite part of the colder months! Being a summer girl myself, I am not a huge fan of the winter (I am just always so cold!), but the big, comfy, oversized sweater trend has definitely given me something to look forward to the past few years when the colder days start coming around!  So now, this week’s Wallet Friendly Friday

What’s not to love?! I don’t think I have ever met anyone who doesn’t love a good sweater with some awesome boots!

This weekend my sister, Danielle, is coming to visit me for JMU‘s Homecoming Weekend! I am so excited and cannot wait to see her! She graduated from her undergrad (with a degree with Psychology) in 2011 – right after my freshman year – but stayed for another year and went to graduate school (with a MAT in Early Childhood Special Education).  So, the past two years have been so weird without her here after having my first two years with her! Going from seeing her everyday (having dinner together, having a permanent gym buddy, etc.), to barely seeing her once a month has been really weird for the both of us! The one thing I am looking forward to about graduating and going to live at home for a little while (hopefully not too long… I want to be employed eventually!) is that I get to have my best friend back!

Anyway, now that I have just rambled for 5 minutes… I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I hope you have some fun Halloween festivities planned!

OOTD: Trendy Tuesday

Good Morning lovely ladies!

Happy Tuesday! This week’s Trendy Tuesday is the perfect fall outfit for this time of year.  With the weather getting progressively cooler, and the days getting shorter and shorter, I know being comfy is one of my main concerns when getting dressed in the morning (in addition to looking fashionable and cute, of course!).  This week’s Trendy Tuesday does exactly that.  With a super stylish (and amazingly comfy!) sweater from J. Crew and an awesome infinity scarf paired with your favorite boots, you are sure to steal the show with your outfit anywhere you go! And now, without further ado, here’s today’s outfit of the day

Outfit Of The Day - Trendy Tuesday Top: J. Crew Elbow-Patch Sweater – jcrew.com, $98

Pants: Koral Skinny Jeans 4 Month Blue Black – austique.co.uk, $290

Boots: Cole Haan Dover Riding Boot – colehaan.com, $448

Bag: Louis Vuitton Damier Speedy 30 – louisvuitton.com, $845

Scarf: Leopard Print Infinity Scarf – dailylook.com, $20

Bracelets: Chain and Leather Bracelet Natural Soft Saddle – mulberry.com, $250

Humble Chic Pyramid Spikes – humblechic.com, $28

Marc by Marc Jacobs Turnlock Small Katie Bracelet – couture.zappos.com, $88

Earrings: Michael by Michael Kors Rose Gold Pyramid Stud Earrings – macys.com, $55

If that awesome little ensemble doesn’t say chic, comfy, and seasonable, then I don’t know what does! To be honest, this is actually one of my favorite types of outfits to wear, and I have been known to have multiple variations of the same general style! You just cannot go wrong with an oversized sweater, scarf, and boots! Paired with either your favorite jeans, or even with a pair of leggings, this outfit is most definitely a staple in everyone’s closet this winter!

I hope you ladies have an amazing day! In good old Harrisonburg, it is actually going to get up to about 65 degrees today! But don’t you worry… it was a whopping 33 degrees when my roommate and I left our house this morning (so naturally, we’ll go from Winter to Spring in just a few short hours!).  But, no matter where you may be, I hope you have nothing but good things going on today! Until tomorrow…

Wallet Friendly Friday Round 2…

Save vs. Splurge…

With sweater season arriving quickly, I have been doing a little bit of online shopping the past few days. I found this Marc Jacobs sweater and fell in love with it, but I knew that if I bought this $315 sweater my parents would kill me! So instead, I kept on going without adding that perfect cream sweater that every girl needs to my shopping cart (talk about self control…)!  But, then a few hours later (when I was avoiding studying for my exam again…), I found myself looking at a sweater that looked almost identical to this dream sweater I had previously found… The difference, you wonder? This new sweater I was looking at was from H&M and, at only $24, was a fraction of the price! This, I decided, is definitly something I can afford and also justify buying… The way I see it, big, warm, comfy sweaters are like a good pair of leggings, you can never have too many and the never go out of style!

Good Morning Beauties

Happy Friday! The weekend is finally upon us, and I don’t know about you, but I am so excited! It has been a really long week and I am just ready for a break from classes and school work for a few days.  Anyway… this week’s Wallet Friendly Friday is in line with the cold weather we have had the past few days. I can’t say I hate that sweater season is upon us… It is one of the only things I enjoy about winter, but who can honestly say they don’t love a big, comfy, cozy sweater?!
