White vest

I love the versatility of this white vest I got at Anthropologie. It was on sale, so a score there of course! But, more importantly, it can be worn in so many ways: here a casual look, but paired with a clean pencil skirt can be worn in a corporate environment as well. How about with some jean shorts or a full skirt? The possibilities are endless really. It's linen, so not my favorite kind of fabric, because linen looks good only for so long before it's all crinkly... but it's made so well with the drawstring waist, pockets (love!) and cute button details.

Favorite skirt

My favorite skirt ever! This Asos skirt, which wasn't too expensive, is such a gem in my wardrobe. I wear it to work, but also paired with more casual items for a more edgy look. I love versatile pieces, which can be worn in a variety of ways. Yellow being such an obsession of mine recently makes it even better :) The draping on one of the hips is really cool too; I always get compliments when I wear it. Additionally, checkered pattern is at the top of my list of favorites too, so this skirt really checks off all the boxes for me. Hope you have a lovely weekend. I have to say weather in Chicago has been incredible lately, so we are planning to take advantage of every minute of it. Thanks for visiting!

I am in love with this rust color! This skirt is a great transition piece between summer and fall, color-wise. Additionally, a great piece to wear in the fall with tights, but until then it looks great with bare legs and peep toe booties. The tank top happens to be in almost the exact same color, but it was pure coincidence, as I got the skirt almost two years ago (Asos) and the tank top just recently on (still available and on sale for $19!). I love the shape of this tank top, which worn underneath a deep V-neck T-shirt, can still peek through and adds interest to an outfit. Hope you all have a great Saturday! Thanks for visiting.

Being (very) frugal...

Hello and happy Labor Day weekend! Helmut Lang is one of my favorite brands ever, but it's a bit pricey for me, so I am especially happy when I find something by this brand for super cheap. Those pants I found on eBay for...$20! Brand new with tags and in my size! I couldn't believe my luck, it's like I won the lottery given how much they probably cost originally! I love them because they fit me precisely how I wanted - loose in my butt and my crotch, but tight along my legs (calfs especially). They are very much appropriate for work (corporate office in my case), but also what a great item to wear with a more casual top or casual sandals. Here, I am wearing a blazer, which makes it for a more office look, but this could very well be a dinner out look thanks to a casual T-shirt. I also need to mention this lace bra top I am wearing underneath the T-shirt. I love deep V neck T-shirts, but I do not like showing cleavage, so...what a great solution to wear a bra top underneath that's almost like a top in itself, because no one could tell that it's actually a bra. I got it on Asos for dirt cheap and have been wearing it constantly ever since. I've decided to get more bra tops that I can wear underneath T-shirts, so I am currently on a look out for some cute ones in various colors. I think it's a genius solution to not showing cleavage if you don't want to, don't you think?
