Giving Back is the New Black

half united giving back is the new black tee fight hunger

 Today I’m repping my Half United ‘giving back is the new black’ tee and bullet necklace. This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. Half of the proceeds from Half United sales go to feed children in need – they’ve already given over 115 thousand meals to hungry children since they started in 2010!

Perfectly Plaid

Happy hump day!! My favorite pattern this fall is plaid, and I’m incorporating it everywhere! I kept it grungy for this look and added a little edge with the waxed James Jeans skinnies from Crocus.

Girly Grunge

fashion blogger outfits
I’m re-using this Hot Petunias skirt that I wore in this post for a grungier, casual look. We all know by now that I love to mix masculine with feminine, so I paired the tomboy-ish graphic tee and cargo jacket with the preppy pleated skirt, pumps, and a hot pink lip. Mixing looks is the best way to look fashion forward, but not look like you’re trying too hard or playing dress-up. Once again, a super easy look that looks like it was so thought-out!Steal My Style:
Top: Madison & Berkeley @ Nordstrom $26
Skirt: Hot Petunias
Jacket: Hot Petunias
Heels: Rachel Zoe (I’m selling here)

Street Smart: Cheap and Chic

casual grungy fashion outfit
Here is more from my Target project! This whole outfit (minus the shoes and accessories) was just $45. Isn’t that insane?! I love Target!I love dressing up casual outfits with heels because they make the outfit look like you actually thought about it; when in reality I just threw on a t-shirt, cargo’s and a chambray with a beanie and some bling. Layering also does the same trick…this chambray pulled the look together and without it, the outfit would have just been super plain and simple. Moral of the story: adding layers and heels make the outfit look like it was planned out! Super easy, super cheap, and super fab!

Steal My Style: 
T-shirt: Target $13
Chambray: Target $23
Cargo Skinnies: Target $9
Heels: Steve Madden $79
Beanie: Old Navy (unavailable)

stay rad,

Colorful Snakeskin

edgy outfit inspiration
Here is my first of many looks from my Nordstrom Savvy project! Savvy has recently been re-vamped, and they have some amazing super trendy pieces that are very reasonable in price! The new Savvy is offering Nordstrom quality for H&M prices; which is a little cray. Nothing is over $100, and they carry great new lines of on-trend denim including Edyson and BLANKNYC, which are around the $78 price point (crazy, right?) Some more of my favorite New Savvy brands include: Topshop, Wayf, ASTR, and MINKPINK. They all offer really unique pieces that I drool over!This outfit is inspired by pre-Spring, because I am just too excited for what’s to come in the new season! Since the bottom half of this look is very dark, I paired this amazing bright leather jacket with the snakeskin sweatshirt to brighten up this grungy outfit. I added some edge to the grunge look by topping it off with some pointed-toe booties and an orange-red lip.

Steal My Style:
Jacket: BLANKNYC $98
Sweatshirt: WAYF $48
Jeans: Target $23
Shoes: Rock & Republic for Kohl’s $60

Grunge

Grungy doesn’t always have to look messy and hipster! I dressed this grungy look up to look more feminine and put-together. By pairing my grungy pieces with a skirt, heels, and some arm candy, I’m not so dressed down, yet still giving off the ’90’s grunge’ vibe.Steal My Style:

Sweater: Nordstrom $20
Heels: Kohl’s $39 (a-ma-zing)
