style staple #2

I am all about comfort these days and I am firm believe that comfort and style can live together to be something fabulous. Over this past fall and spring I have fallen in love with the prospects of what a simple graphic sweatshirt can do for an outfit. Paired with the perfect button down shirt, skinny pants and necklace you are ready for work or a fab night out!


Style staple #1: The boyfriend jean

by thriftyfashionista on June 29, 2014

My 30th birthday is in a month and as I go through my existing wardrobe I am wondering if  perhaps my clothes are now a little “young”. However I am not 30 yet and it still summer and when I am not in my gym clothes I have become a big fan of easy dressing.  This summer my staple of choice is the boyfriend jean. They can be dressed up and dressed down and they go with one of my favorite accessories: The crop top. Crop tops, platform sandals and a trendy backpack. let’s not forget a body chain for a little extra sassy.
