Shop my closet

The past few weeks have been really busy and this one and the next will be no different. It is taking a toll on me and I didn't feel even feel like putting together a blog post last night. I went straight to bed after dinner. I don't even have any pictures edited ahead, so no time for putting together a full post.

However, I did play around with some of the pieces in my poshmark closet over the weekend to create some outfits, so today is as good a day as any to share those.

All of these pieces are in good shape. Most of them are for sale because they don't fit me anymore.

This cute sundress and cardigan are perfect to finish the summer in and the dress could be layered with a denim jacket and boots for the fall. The colors are perfect for it.

I have been admiring all the tassel jewelry that is on trend right now, but I couldn't really justify the purchase when it wouldn't really fit in with my work attire. Then one day I popped into Michaels and noticed some tassels and colorful beads on clearance. I already had other beads and all the tools for making jewelry so I decided make my own. The bracelets are really easy to make- just string your beads and tassels on stretch magic cord and tie it in a knot. Glue your knot and you are done.
I also made another set of stacked bead tassel bracelets and a beaded wrap charm bracelet while I was at it. You may have seen those on Instagram. The wrap bracelet is for sale in my Poshmark closet.
I love how these bright colors pop against my white cold shoulder top. I know that "off shoulder" is having a moment now, but I've decided the cold shoulder top is more my jam. I'm just a bit picky about tops being too flowy and almost returned this one. I'm glad I didn't because I really like it with the fitted skirt. It will work well with skinny jeans too, and I can probably tuck it into shorts.
What trends are you admiring right now?

This blazer is one of my favorite thrift store finds. I've worn it so many times, I would have my cost- per-wear out of it had I spent 100s of dollars, yet I paid very little. The price isn't what makes it my favorite though, it's the perfect fit and structure. It always looks polished, never needs ironing, and always holds its shape. Gotta love that.
Hope you had a great weekend. We stayed in this weekend and took care of some household things and caught up on chores.  Sometimes you have to do that.

I was inspired by a Loft ad that came through my email to pair these pieces together. The ad showed a top this color with patterned black and white shorts. The shorts are really nothing like my pants, but I immediately thought of them.
Hope your having a great week so far!

Happy Monday

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. We had company this weekend. Our niece and four-year-old great-niece came to visit. We spent Saturday visiting the Sea Turtle Center, painting at Color Me Happy ( a paint your own pottery or canvas shop) and visiting a wild life refuge. We saw alligators, ducks, and a raccoon. This four-year-old is pretty quite and tame but keeping up with her can still wear you out.
I wore this outfit to work last week. I've had a similar version pinned forever, but was lacking the coral pumps. I picked these up a couple of months ago but have held out until spring to wear them. I think they are going to be a fun addition to the closet, but a color like this can be intimidating.

I wore this blazer and top with pants here, but I changed up a bit and went with booties and a skirt. I really like this version. I think this look with be a good one too if I swapped the blazer for a moto jacket. I have stayed away from the moto jackets because I told myself that I couldn't wear them to work but there are some options now that would totally work for the office with an outfit like this one.  I'm thinking that this one, this one or this moto jacket would work. What do you think?

I've been eyeing the nude palettes from Maybelline for a while and finally gave in and purchased the blushed nudes and nudes just before Halloween. Searching for Halloween makeup tutorials got me hooked on general makeup tutorials and some new products so I've been having fun playing with make up lately. I'd recommend this palette if you are looking for some pinks and don't want to spend a ton on colors you may not like.

Change the top

I didn't realize how many thrifted pieces I was wearing in one outfit until I listed it all out above. Maybe I should have made a title based on that fact. Instead, I  focused on the twist top. I have worn this jacket with either grey or black pants many times and it's amazing how just changing the top or color that I pair it with makes a whole new outfit.
Hope you have a great weekend!
