The timeless combination of black and white is a huge trend this fall. From graphic prints to color blocks, just about everything looks chic in black and white. Given black and white's popularity this fall, luxe-looking options are available at every price point. In today's post, I pair two black and white tops from affordable lines to create a fresh print mix. A stripe crop top from JC Penney (now on sale) sits pretty on top of a houndstooth tank from H&M (only $7 in-store).
New Ross stores are opening! To celebrate, I'm giving you a chance to win a $25 gift card to get your shop on at a Ross store near you. I remember when the first Ross store opened in St. Louis back in March, 2012. I instantly became a fan because of the fresh opportunities to find designer goods for less. The bargain shopping scene in the Lou has only gotten better since, as we now have almost 10 Ross stores in the St. Louis area and a newly opened store in nearby Mount Vernon, Illinois.
Remember when I participated in the #RossFallFaves styling challenge? Thanks to your votes, I won half of the challenges. Thank you! Thank you! While selecting my looks for the weekly style-offs, I hit the shoe gold mine at Ross. My gold cut-out oxfords. Got 'em at Ross. My cobalt blue d'Orsay sandals? Got 'em at Ross. My newest burgundy, designer booties. Got 'em at Ross too. Check out my new booties in today's casual Friday look.
Today's casual fall look is all about the mix. The J.Crew mixed-media sweater (now at sale-on-sale pricing in-store) is like a shirt and a sweater in one, no layering required. This sweater is perfect for a casual ensemble with jeans. Mixed resin jewelry, a snake-embossed clutch, and burgundy pumps add a little flair. The best part is that everything in this look is on sale or priced so low that it need not be.
Last fall, the sporty chic trend made major waves, essentially changing the way we view clothing relegated to the gym or lazy Saturdays at home. Just like that, comfy sweatshirts became chic enough for the city streets. Comfy and chic? What's not to love, right? In today's post, I fully embrace the sporty chic vibe. My new favorite sweatshirtfinds an unlikely yet perfect partner in a vintage leather pencil skirt. To jazz the look up even more, I added a statement bib necklace featuring oversized crystals and an oh-so edgy pair of spiked ear jackets.
