Polka dot top Winter to Spring

Do you have pieces that you wear year round and transition from season to season? I sure do. One of those is this polka dot popover.

A dressy casual holiday outfit

Today I'm sharing with you what I call a dressy casual outfit. It's got just enough festive touches of lace, velvet and rich red to be perfect for the holidays.

The essential white button down

Read most any list of wardrobe essentials and it will likely include the classic white button down shirt. But is it really a must have?

Shades of grey

Sometimes it's fun to create an outfit from just one color. As much as I like color, every now and then I like a toned down look. This mix of greys came together nicely for me.

Happy Hump Day! I promised I wouldn't bombard you with Nsale posts, but I do want to share some work wear picks with you. If you are like me, you  get the most wear out of your work wear and can invest a little more in it since you will be getting more out of it.

Splurge vs Save- Saturday shopping

I decided to do something a little different for today's Saturday Shopping post. Some unique things have caught my eye but they are way over my budget or what I find reasonable to spend on clothing, so I decided to do a little splurge vs save post. This is just for fun. I doubt I'd ever buy any of these, even in the save column, except maybe the loafers. I don't wear baseball caps and the bomber probably wouldn't be practical for me as we don't have enough cool weather. Our springs are pretty warm. Oh, can you tell I have spring on the brain? Did the florals give it away? We have had no winter and I'm over trying to wear a winter wardrobe that it is not even cold enough for, so let's move on. Hello spring!

NSale work wear picks

As promised on Saturday, here is a round up of some Nordstrom Anniversary sale business professional work pieces. (See some casual picks here.) These will make great investments as they can be mixed and matched with lot of things and worn many ways. The tops are all available in multiple colors and prints, and most everything else (pants, skirts, shoes) have multiple color options. (I wouldn't necessarily mix and match the color choices shown here, but all pieces come in colors they will work well with items you probably already have.)

If you have yet to get started shopping, don't lose hope. It looks like some things will become available again, you just have to watch closely.

Still not sure how to wear some of these pieces? Here's how I'd pair a few of these items:

Makin' a list, checkin' it twice... oh wait, that was last week. Christmas is over. I hope you had a great one and all your wishes came true.
I couldn't help it with the title. These checkered pants are just so much fun. These were a "for me" purchase while Christmas shopping. I've been wanting to add some more work appropriate slim leg pants to my wardrobe but I have a hard time finding them to fit. Slim or straight leg usually means slim all the way from the waist down and that's not going to work for this curvy girl.  I sized up a couple of sizes with these and was pleased with the results. They were on sale, so they were mine. 
I will try to photograph them better next time. I need to make some adjustments to the lens I've been using. I hope adjustments correct a focus problem with it. If not, I'll be looking for a new 50mm lens.

I've set up a new Pinterest account just for Savvy Southern Chic. I'd love it if you'd follow me. I'll be posting outfits there now. I've also taken the plunge into yet another time suck, I mean, social media outlet- Instagram. I'd love it if you followed me there too.

No, no small changes to the blog or life. I'm referring to the outfit. I wore the blazer and top together before with black pants and shoes. This time it's grey bottoms. I think the bottom half is a little boring like this, but it's functional. Some days that's the way it has to be.
I also have a red blazer for sale in my Poshmark closet. It needs a new home.

Ruffles and flats

shoes- Ann Klein via Belk's option option
worn Feb. 9, 2015
I feel pretty strongly that most dressy outfits, especially ones with fancy ruffles, look better with heels. And some casual outfits look better with flats, booties, or something other than heels. This outfit would have been better with heels, but my poor feet just felt like wearing flats. Sometimes comfort wins out over looks.

Ol' rusty and a loafer day

Blazer- old- option option
pants- JCPenney
shoes-old Target option option
necklace- Chicos-thrifted
Worn Feb. 7, 2014
I'm wearing my trusty rust wool jacket again. This piece gets rotated over and over during fall and winter, but usually just with browns. This time I tried black pants. Maybe next time I'll work in navy. I also wore loafers because it was Friday and I was tired, just too tired for heels. Do you ever have those days?

Speaking of heels vs flats, one of my favorite bloggers recently posted that she wears flats a lot off the blog but not on the blog. Why not go ahead and keep it real? Show the outfits with flats too. Not being ugly to anybody, but outfits that are not for the real world do me no good. They are just eye candy and I see a lot of it. Lots of posts where I think, where in the world would she really wear that outfit or those shoes? You certainly wouldn't do a lot of walking. It makes me wonder if some of these people even have jobs, or do that just dress up and take pictures all day? Just my rant, you go ahead and run your blog as you see fit. Mine will be a real world collection of what I really wear to work, church, and play.
