Stepping Out

Yes, yes. I’ve got to step out today. So, out come the pumps.
The look of the day features a blouse with a rounded neckline adorned with ruffles, and a turquoise and brown ‘global inspired’ print. The top is worn with brown knee-length shorts. A woven belt, patent croc pumps, and a croc clutch add chic finishing touches.
Have a great weekend!

Not Going Out Like That

So yeah. This was about to turn into a jeans week. I may be busy packing, but I’m not going out like that. Today, I broke out of the jeans rut by throwing on this salmon pink, silk, tiered skirt. The skirt is paired with a purple tube top. Navy d’Orsay flats complete the casual look.

Looking Back, Looking Forward

Going flat. Our feet deserve to take a break sometimes from stilettos. And, the summer is the perfect time to go flat since flat shoes are usually perfect partners for many summer looks. Today’s post features some of my favorite flats, shoes that have earned a permanent position in my wardrobe for their style and comfort.

Here’s a pair that I would like to have. The ruching detail, patent light taupe color, low wedge heel, peep-toe, what’s not to love?

Newport News

New territory. Owing to the rising gas prices, I no longer make unplanned trips to my favorite off-price retailers to see what’s in. Those trips have to be strategically scheduled to maximize efficiency. I do, however, spend more time online shopping.

I stumbled onto the Newport News site recently and was pleasantly surprised by many great deals. Today’s featured strapless dress with its tropical floral print, shirred sweetheart neckline, and pleated skirt, on sale for $25, is one of those bargains.

As if the price was not low enough, I googled “Newport news coupons,” and found a couple valid codes—L40 for 20% off, and 635 for free shipping. Newport News actually lets you use them both on one order too! The entire purchase, shipping included, totaled $21.95.

Back in a Tank

Ok ok. About two weeks away from a move, I am spending a great part of my days collecting boxes and packing boxes. So, the look is very casual. This outfit features an ON stripe tank worn with light wash bootleg jeans. I haven’t worn bootleg jeans in ages. But, this stretch pair is comfortable and form-fitting.
