Classic black and white


Happy Monday!! Today I am keeping it simple with the good old classic colors. Black and White. These are the perfect go to colors on a crazy Monday morning. You don't have to think about it, just pull it out of the closet and go!
This peplum top was a recent gift from my sister in law. It is my first peplum (shocker I know!) but I was not sure how they would look on me. Well it turns out, I love it! Maybe it's because this one is a little longer then most I've seen but I will be keeping my eye out for more when I'm thrifting. 


I scored these red kitten pumps for $2.00 at a thrift store a while back. I don't pull them out of my closet enough but when I do I'm not disappointed!

A night out

I don't know about you but some weeks can just be way, way to long! This was one of those weeks for me. So when my husband surprised me with a spur of the moment date night, I couldn't be happier! This is what I came up with to wear on our night out.
And I'm so sorry for the quality of these photos. My camera is on the crappy end to say the least! I will hopefully be getting a new one here soon.
 
 
So the pants, boots, and blazer are all from thrift stores. The clutch and scarf were both gifts.

I am in love with these jeans by the way! They are J Crew and no I didn't even pay half of what they would have cost at retail price. I paid only $9.99! They were in perfect condition too! One of my best purchases so you will be seeing them a lot.

This blazer was originally from Target and I snagged it from the thrift store Value Village for $1!



 
Despite the long week, my night out with my hubby made it better. So here's to long weeks, surprise night outs and even better weekends! Hope you all have a fabulous weekend yourself!

Thrift finds

I recently found this amazing little thrift store in Coeur D'Alene ID called the Beau Monde Exchange. I. AM. HOOKED. They have brand name clothing in fabulous condition for cheap! And I love cheap :) Here are a few of my finds. I will be showing you how I style these pieces later on the blog.
 

 
These booties are in perfect condition and originally from Target.
Targets price: $29.99
I snagged them for: $7.00!!

 
I couldn't pass up this chevron dress that was half off the thrift store price. What I love most is that it has pockets! I'm just a little obsessed with pockets in a dress.
My price: $4.00 after the half off price.


 
This last dress is from Target. I am loving the color and the detail at the neck line!
Target price: $15 to $25 (I'm guessing here from what I have seen dresses this brand average)
My price: $4.00
 
So grand total (drum roll please) $15 for all three!!!
 
AND that is why I love to thrift!

A little pink

So I picked up this pink blazer at H&M over the summer for just $5! Yes, you heard that right. It has become a staple in my wardrobe lately. I decided to pair it with this back and white stripe skirt that I got at the Goodwill for only $2. The shirt is from Target, and I got it for just $4.98 on sale a while back. So this whole outfit cost me only about $12!



My amazing hubby got these Steve Madden boots for me on my birthday.(He is a keeper!)
I LOVE the detail on the back on them and talk about comfortable!
                                         
                                                        Hope you all had a great Monday!!

Well here it goes!

So this is it. My first post as a blogger and I am not going to lie, it’s exciting and scary all at the same time! But mostly I’m excited to see where this will go! Ok..ok…enough of that, lets get to the good stuff. Clothes!
 
This is one of my work day outfits and I just have to tell you, I am kind of loving the black and brown trend that has been going on lately. I don't know about you but when I was growing up, you NEVER and I mean NEVER paired those two colors together. It just wasn't done. But I'm glad it's making a comeback!
This sweater is one of my favs for sure. Comfy and you can't go wrong with a leopard print! 

One of the best purchases I have ever made were on these boots! They are Miz Mooz and I picked them up at Nordstrom Rack a couple years ago. 


 
Well that's all I have for you today. Hope you all have a great weekend!
