Stripes and flowers

Happy July everyone! I know, it’s halfway through the month, but I haven’t done a blog post yet this month, so I thought I’d say it anyway.

I went out shopping on 4th of July weekend and found some good deals at Ross and Marshall’s that I thought I’d share with y’all.

This Anne Klein skirt was only $13.99 on clearance at Ross. Whoohoo. I saw another striped skirt before I left that was only $10.99 regular price. I almost bought that instead, but you just can’t beat the quality of this Anne Klein skirt over the more cheaply made t-shirt material thin cotton skirt I thought of getting instead. That one was cute, but I decided to go with the better quality of this one.

And this shirt, though! I was admiring it when it was full price at the Marshall’s close to me, then just happened to spot it at another one a month or so down the road on clearance for only $10. Yes, please! Check out those cute floral details on the sleeves of this Kim & Cami tie front top.

The big asymmetrical stripes make a bold statement, while the florals add a softer feminine touch.

Also, the gold sandals are from Ross. Less than $15. Good deals are my jam!

We went to one of the historical houses in Portland to do this shoot, and it was packed because they were having a car show. We walked around a bit, took a few photos out back, then switched to a quieter historical house located in Troutdale. Much easier to do photos without the crowds.

I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead. Happy shopping!

Current trend I’m loving

Do you ever see a fashion trend you love right away while others may take some time to warm up to? Well this trend is one I’ve liked right from the get-go.

 

Burgundy pants, white button up shirt, black faux fur collar cardigan, black booties and cat eye sunglasses

 

I’m talking about racing stripes on the side of clothes. Mostly I like them on the sides of pants, but they could also be on the sleeves of a top or the sides of a dress as well. Super cute.

I found the pair I’m wearing in this photo at Old Navy. I had a $5 Verizon Up reward, searched through the clearance racks for something I liked in my size and found this for $10.50. So I got them for $5.50. Whoohoo! I love a good deal.

I paired my new pants with the racing stripe down the side with a white button up shirt, black wedge booties, a black faux fur cardigan, black leather jacket for extra warmth on a cold day plus a retro white purse and my cat ear Betsey Johnson sunglasses. (Still love these sunglasses the most out of all my sunglasses!)

What are some current trends you’re loving right now? And which ones are you still on the fence about? I’m still trying to decide how I feel about snakeskin print. I think that is one trend where a little bit goes a long way, and is kind of fun in unexpected colors. But definitely don’t wear it head to toe. Way. Too. Much. Snakeskin.

As always, you can shop the look below.
