Seeing all these hints of spring – and sunshine – have me searching out color in my wardrobe.
I bought this dress on clearance at Dollar General for $5. I like the varying shades of gray. In the summer, tights won’t be necessary but on a windy April day, I’m fine with the look. Tights are Cato brand.
The yellow cardigan is lightweight. Target, on sale for $7.99.
Paired this look off with a pair of gray flats. Look out, world!
Pastels. Sometimes I like them. Sometimes I don’t.
With this outfit, I do.
Skirt is from Cato. Clearance rack for $9.99.
Paired with with a yellow T from Target. Not on clearance but on sale for $5. Perfect.
The lilac cardigan is from Christopher and Banks. Originally priced at $50, I picked this up for $19.
Election Day. I should’ve been decked out in red, white and blue.
Nope. Guess again.
When I think of suede, I think circa 1978. Not sure why, but it’s my first thought.
Cato had these cute brown suede skirts on clearance. I couldn’t resist. 12.99 was a bargain.
I paired it with an olive camisole from gordmans. Full price-6.99.
Wore a black long sleeve shirt over that. Target. 4.99
Black tights are from Cato. 2.99 clearance. Leopard ballet flats were available at Shopko for 12.99 clearance.
The jean jacket is 11 years old. Bought it when I taught journalism. Cato. Clearance. 15.99.
Found a similar look on Pinterest. Loved the compliments on election night.
I will admit it. I never would have dreamed of pairing leopard print with emerald blue.
But, Pinterest showed me the error of my thinking.
I don’t have a black blazer – and really, I’m not a blazer fan, so I added a balcony cardigan. Next time, I think I’ll wear a jean jacket instead.
Skirt = Cato. Clearance for $7.99. Blue camisole -Cato. Regular price $9.99. Cardigan is from Target. Clearance for $4.99.
Another day in the newsroom. I have an interview today so I wanted a classy outfit, but I’m also on deadline -we print tomorrow- so I want something casual and roomy.
Necklace is from Cato. About six years old. Clearance rack for $1.99. Bargain!
Black V-neck sweater is Merona from Target. It’s clearance rack material, that I paid $6.88.
Chambray shirt came from Maurices. I first looked at it when it was regular price – $45.99. Now, there is no way I’m paying that kind if cha-Ching for a shirt, no matter how popular or stylish. Clearance rack was marked down to $22 and the day I bought it, the store took off another 50 percent. $11. Perfect.
Crimson straight leg pants are from Cato. They weren’t expensive to begin with, but I waited til they hit clearance and grabbed them when they were $14.99.
I love the shoes. They are leopard ballet flats from Shopko. $12.99 clearance.
