workwear wednesday: the jumpsuit

I’ve been wanting a jumpsuit for a while. The idea of wearing one thing and shoes and that’s it – well, it’s kind of like wearing a onesie or a nightie – and I like it. So when I forgot to skip the month for JustFab and ended up with a credit, I decided to give the JustFab Mandy Jumpsuit a try. It’s super comfortable and was a pleasure to wear to work.

My place of work is a pretty casual office, although I do like to dress up a tiny bit business casual. So yes, a jumpsuit is acceptable workwear 🙂 Plus I straightened my hair for the first time in a while and didn’t notice how long it had gotten!

september 2014 fashion budget

Another month, another budget! 2 months ago, I tried to bring my budget down from about $100 per month to $25 per month. I knew I wouldn’t easily accomplished, but I just wanted to get down to a lower amount so that I could use the difference for a newly acquired car payment. Well, last month’s budget was totally demolished. Let’s see how I did this month.

Here’s what I got this month:
1. Eileen Fisher black silk tank top, $2 (thrifted)
2. Misook black and purple cardigan, $3 (thrifted)
3. Misook hooded jacket, $3 (thrifted)
4. JustFab Mandy Jumpsuit, used a JustFab credit – $40
5. Arizona Jeans light denim sleeveless shirt, $7 from ebay
6. Gap sleeveless denim shirt, $8 from ebay
7. Simply Vera by Vera Wang black skirt, free (used consignment credit)

= 8 items for $63 !
– Minus a $20 check from ebates (you should sign up if you haven’t already…it’s free and you get cash back!)
TOTAL = $43

I did go over my budget…but only by a little bit, plus I got some really awesome basics! I am still proud of myself that I was able to keep it under $100.

OK, now it’s your turn to spill…how did you do this month!?

happy prints.

I finally have a piece from the Phillip Lim x Target collection!

I hadn’t planned on buying anything but went into Target looking for shampoo for hubby and left with this super cute skirt – and it was on clearance! I loved the color (mustard) and the fun print right away, when I put it on, I really loved the style too 😉

layering a dress

First of all, I just wanted to say…this is my 300th post! wow! I couldn’t have continued this blog without all my sweet bloggy friends and commenters. Thank YOU!

I’ve really embraced the whole layering for warmth (AND style) thing. Here I am, wearing a sleeveless ponte dress over a long-sleeved shirt. My legs were cold though, should have worn tights 🙂

a dress made of sunshine

I wore this dress last week on a day when the weather was more spring-like and less fall-like. I love yellow, and even though I don’t think it looks great on me all the time, I still love to wear the color.

And once again, I’m wearing my JustFab Luxe Remington bootie. It might be all worn out by the end of the season 🙂
