Trends in the Workplace Pt. Two | Pleated Skirt | Giveaway

Any excuse I get to wear a blazer in a unique way, I am all over it! I have loved this pleated skirt and blazer combo so much I have already worn it 4 times. Sorry to those who have seen it repeated!!



OUTFIT DETAILS
BLAZER | TOP (I have it in 3 colors and LIVE in them) | SKIRT c/o | HEELS | HANDBAG | BRACELET | NECKLACE  (30% off!) | LIPS (Snob)

A big trend is to wear a pleated skirt. This style is easy to wear to work because the hemline is the perfect length. I love the midi length! Wearing it with this scalloped tank is the perfect Summer combo! To make it work appropriate, and church appropriate because that’s where I first wore this look, I slipped this blazer over it.

This skirt is lined but I wore THIS slip under it just in case. I am wearing a medium since it’s European sizes and they run smaller. I have been able to tuck many different thickness levels of tops under it so the sizing is perfect, I need to find it in black.

One of my favorite trends to wear in the workplace and out is a blazer. It comes naturally to me but I know it doesn’t for everyone. I am sharing more ways to wear blazers as trendy pieces in the future! Plus, where to buy them cause I have like 15 of them and never spend more than $20 a piece.

Summer Style Tips and Tricks

How to successfully shop at Shein.com | Budget Friendly

If you have followed along for any portion of time, you know I LOVE shopping at Shein. Their website can be difficult to navigate and risks may be involved IF you don’t know how to shop with them. I am spilling my secrets on how to successfully shop Shein.com.



OUTFIT DETAILS
TRENCH (Shein sold out, exact same as above)| WHITE TANK | JEANS | HEELS | HANDBAG
| RING | NECKLACE | BRACELET | LIPS (Snob)

I love finding good pieces on a good deal. Many times, this is a trial and error type of thing. I have been shopping at Shein.com for years and have had my fair share of great finds and not so great finds. Through the years I have figured out how to shop there and know that what I am buying will work.

The one downfall is their shipping is very slow since it’s overseas, but if you buy it in advance you won’t be sorry. Plus, their shipping is FREE!!!! 

Here are my foolproof steps when shopping Shein.com:

  1. Sizes: Always check the reviews for sizing issues. People are very honest on the reviews and it always helps me, especially if they post a picture of them in it. If all else fails, size up one size!
  2. Color: I keep my eyes open on this one. Online shopping can be deceiving. Don’t have high expectations for the exact color as the photo, most of the time it is but sometimes there is a small variance. Also, I only buy white items if they have been reviewed as being lined or thick material. I have ordered white items and needed to layer underneath to be less see through. I love a full slip dress for this reason!
  3. Fit: I like my items on the loose side so I gravitate to these styles. When I do, I make sure the height of the waistline hits the model where I know I need it. If it hits her higher than I need, I will size up to hit it correctly. Also, be open about tucking things in or front tucking to have the desired fit you want. I have ordered things a size or two up to be able to front tuck.
  4. Length: In dresses, if it hits the model mid thigh, I will size up. If it’s a loose fit and hits her close to her knee, I will order my typical size. For tops, I almost always size up because I don’t like cropped or shorter tops. You can tell in the reviews as well if they are going to be shorter. Almost always with an ONE SIZE, they will be on the shorter side so be prepared for that. They typically work for me and my body type but if you are questionable on the fit of the top with it being one size, I would opt out.
  5. Fabric: It’s typically polyester which in my opinion isn’t a bad thing. It’s easy to maintain, although it sometimes easily wrinkles (i just get over it or use my steamer!). You can see in the reviews what the fabric feels like. If something I order is super stiff, I will add a little fabric softener in my laundry when I first wash it! Also, AIR DRY ONLY!!!!
  6. Alterations: I will sometimes alter an item when it arrives to fit better. For example, if it’s spaghetti straps and it hits too low on my chest, I will tack the straps to the height I need. Also, sometimes dresses become tunics when they arrive due to length. Improvise when you love the pieces.
  7. Priority Dispatching: Look for this next to the item! This means it will ship out WAY faster!! I think it’s because it’s coming from a certain warehouse.
  8. When all else fails, order a size up.

Two Ways to wear a two piece outfit | giveaway

Affordable two piece set that can be worn multiple ways!

Versatility is key for making your wardrobe versatile and inexpensive. Sharing how I styled this two piece outfit two ways and MANY more options! 


Affordable two piece set that can be worn multiple ways!

OUTFIT DETAILS
TWO PIECE STRIPE OUTFIT c/o | WHITE SKIRT c/o (obsessed!) | HEELS | HANDBAG | NECKLACE | EARRINGS | BRACELET | LIPS (Snob)

The number one way to make a small wardrobe and a small budget work is versatility, for example, this two piece outfit! You can wear the top with multiple bottom options as well as the skirt with multiple top options.

Here I took the top from the two piece set and paired it with my high-waisted pleated skirt, I happen to be OBSESSED. I have already worn it 4 times so it has quickly become a new staple piece in my wardrobe! This top can also be worn with high waisted denim shorts, jeans, or even a cute maxi skirt.

The matching top and skirt outfit is one of Jason’s new favorites! I love the flow of pattern, it makes you look super tall and lean. I also can’t say no to a high-waisted A-line skirt. It takes me back to my Kate Spade days. This skirt can also be worn with a blousy tank top, t-shirt, long sleeve blouse, or a light weight sweater!

Watch for the full blog post on the second outfit!
