Shopping Mojo

In light of the mega sales that we will be seeing this week, I wanted to briefly review where I've been having good shopping mojo lately & pieces I've been loving.

One of my favorite go-to stores, especially for staple items, has been the LOFT.  First off, let me say, never ever ever pay full price for anything here!! They are constantly running great sales that make each piece much more affordable - seriously, if I find out that you've paid full price I may have to slap your hand (well, maybe not really).

One of the main areas I've have good luck with at the LOFT is pants.  From leggings to dress pants, I've found the fit to be spot on & the material to be of good quality.  Here's a sample of what I've been loving:
Again, with the changing of the seasons,  I replace some of the worn-out staples in my wardrobe, but at an average of $25-30 for each piece, it's hard to feel guilty.  Here is a small sampling of how I've worn the pants shown above (I'll link to the items still available):

Left: Pants, LOFT //  Scarf, Target 
Right:  Ponte Knit Leggings, LOFT // Scarf, Zumiez

Left & Middle:  Pants, LOFT // Necklace, Kendra Scott via Nordstrom
Right: Leggings, LOFT //  Graphic Tee, Old Navy

I'm loving all the leggings this year...the bottom right picture is the good old fashion simple legging for more casual outfits.  I also stocked up on the two ponte knit leggings (one with a faux leather stripe) to wear to work & with more dressier outfits.  Either way, all types are great.  

As for the dress pants, I have great luck with the Marisa adjustments needed.  They also have 3 other fit types so you can find what works for your body type.

The other store I've been finding tons of items at lately is Old Navy.  To be quite honest with you, this store has been very hit-and-miss for me over the years, but this Fall Old Navy has been spot on!  Again, here are some of my faves thus far.

Both of these pair of jeans have fit my needs for this season...they fit well & the price - & color & distressing -was right.  I have also found that Old Navy dresses work really well for me without a lot of effort on my part, so I love the versatility of both of these dresses (hello faux leather pockets!).  Here's a quick sample of how I've been wearing these items lately (more to come on the Chambray, eventually).

Left: Dress, tights & booties - Old Navy // Scarf  - Target
Right:  Dress & booties - Old Navy // Scarf - Target

Left:  Jeans - Old Navy // Boot Cuffs - Grace & Lace // Buffalo Plaid - Old Navy
Right:  Wine Colored Skinnies - Old Navy // sorry, all other items are no longer available :-(

Once again, never pay full price at Old Navy either!  There will always be a sale or discount coupons/rewards that can be used - shop smart :-)

Both of these stores will be having sales this weekend, so let me know what you get!!

In other blog news, on Monday I eluded to a big announcement.  I'm happy to say that I've asked my sister, Stacie, to join me in this adventure.  I want to bring you guys more content more often & I can't accomplish those goals on my own (purely from a time standpoint).  Our goal together is to bring more variety (or viewpoints) to the blog, but definitely keep Fashion on the forefront as that's where my passion lies!  Stacie will have a post for you this Friday, & over the next week we'll work on more introductions & updates.  I like her - so I think you will too (lol) & I'm excited to have a partner in crime!!  Be sure to stop by & say "hi" on Friday & next week you'll get to learn more about her.

Happy & Safe Thanksgiving to all!
