SALE Must Haves That Will Take You Into Spring!

The end of the season sales can be amazing…total scores, right?  Although, if you can only wear the item for a few more weeks it might not be worth it.  Below, I have compiled a short list of sale scores that I know you can style well into the warmer months.  Hope you enjoy and Happy Shopping!  * I am going to create “style now and later” boards on my Outfit Ideas Pinterest board featuring the below items later today or tomorrow..so stay tuned!

 

A Cool Blazer:

Remember that killer yellow blazer I scored on super sale around this time last year?  I wore it SO often….the 30 dollar price tag is down to pennies per wear.  Blazers have become more than work wear and the most casual of circumstance welcomes them…boyfriend jean + tee + blazer = my polished mommy uniform.  It is so nice when an item can perform double duty like that. I would focus on a fun print or bright color so you can start to infuse some much needed color into your wardrobe now…and it will still work come late Spring.   Blazer featured below available here, or if that doesn’t strike your fancy how about this one , this one or this one!

Silver Pointy Toed Pumps:

I am on the prowl for a designer silver metallic pointy toed pump.  I saw them on a few celebs here and there over the winter (Kate Moss in particular) and have decided they will definitely carry into spring and even summer.  Picturing now with all black and then white skinnies accented with metallic silver heels and jewelry.  Sounds fab, no?  The ones featured below are pricey available here but for more budget friendly options…I like these and these.  Only a few left but love this one too!

Leather Leggings:

If you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon by now…there is no time like the present.  I would stick to faux in a true legging style…they are lighter weight and you can wear them all seasons.  If you read the blog or follow on Instagram you know how often I wear mine.  I plan to snatch up a new pair ( I have worn mine OUT) to style into Spring. Featured below are these and if those don’t work how about these, these or these.  If you just can’t seem to wrap your head around the full on leather legging..what about these?

LCT5ZUJ_mxDistressed Denim:

There is not a doubt in my mind that distressed denim will not be on the scene come Spring and Summer.  I have two pairs..one if a boyfriend and one is a skinny straight leg and they are hands down my favorite jeans to wear.  Nothing screams “cool factor” like a worn in knee and pocket!  I know there are some DIY gals that can make their own..but for the rest of us who have zero time (or desire) pick up a pair on super sale here, here or here!  The ones featured below are available here.

Spring 2013: Weekend and Play Addition

Whew!!  I have done a lot of closets this Spring…and still many more to go!  One thing every client has asked for is a list of “what they are missing” from their wardrobe when the closet makeover is complete.  I decided that I could use this list for my own closet.  Please note, this is my play/weekend addition….meaning this is what I think every women needs for her non work related wardrobe.  I will follow up with a work must haves later.  I am willing to bet you have most of these, but it is still nice to see a roundup all in one place. Think I am missing something…share!  Enjoy and Happy Shopping:)

Fun Blazer: Since this piece isn’t earmarked specifically for your work day, you can have some fun with it.   If you like the one above in yellow or maybe a spring inspired print!  I have sold a few white linen ones to clients, and kind of want one for myself.  Whatever speaks to you…go for it….because a blazer is an absolute must have for Spring 2013!

White Skinnies: I am officially back in these skinnies above (finally fit after much gym torture)….now I just need the tan to look like my old self:)  Anyway, white skinnies are a must have for Spring.  They look great dressed up to go out on the town and equally as great casually cuffed with flats.  The trusted Rockstars are a great inexpensive option or you can  spend a bit more for my best sellers (through my box service) these Level 99’s.

 Scarf : I should have put the scarf first, because I believe it to be THAT important in a casual wardrobe.  It completely transforms a boring outfit and can be tied/worn so many different ways.  I adore color and prints, but solids are great too.  Old Navy always has awesome scarf options and  Nordstroms has great options in every price point. So no matter your budget, grab a lightweight scarf for Spring!

                                                                                  

 Boyfriend Jean: Ah, the good old boyfriend jean.  The ones I am wearing above available here are so easy to wear and comfortable and definitely an affordable option.  I also have a pair very similar to these that I wear constantly.  If something a bit more classic is in your sights, these are awesome!

 

Statement Necklace: I could have featured many different necklaces, but decided to go with one of my all time favorites and a definite regular on the blog from Stella and Dot.  Unfortunately this one isn’t available any longer but similar vibe here.  Also, I adore my statement necklaces from Zolie Designs specifically this one in bright yellow! A statement necklace takes a regular old tee shirt and boyfriend jeans adds a shot of color and level of chic with a simple clasp around your neck!

 

Perfect Tee: Finding the perfect tee can be quite the challenge so whenever I see one that I like, I scoop it up.  I tend to gravitate towards white and black tees because they go with everything, but color is great too!  I really like these vintage ones from Old Navy.  This alternative tee is also great and has the same easy fit and vintage vibe.  If you are willing to splurge (and I sometimes do) this one looks a little more body conscious and has an amazing fit.  A great tee is essential as a layering piece for Spring.  Throw it under a blazer, a cardigan, a jean jacket and layer on the accessories equaling the perfect casual outfit.

 

Maxi: Obviously I am a fan of “black” for a maxi from the photo above and my recent feature here but honestly any color or print will do.  If you want to totally splurge this one is stunning or maybe the reasonably priced Von Vonni I am wearing above.  If budget is an issue, no worries there are a bunch of options at Target too.  This dress can take you to a summer wedding with glam accessories and shoes or to a backyard BBQ with flats and a ponytail making it another must have for Spring 2013.

Flat Shoe: I seriously adore my new Mossimo Sandals from Target.  They were an absolute steal and I love that they incorporate both black and brown into one shoe.  I think it is important for every woman to have a “go to” flat aside from a sneaker.  Ballet flats are a great option too and Piperlime has a killer selection for all budgets.  Stylish flats take you from yoga mom to stylish mom and are an absolute must have.

Bright Heel: I love love love this trend and didn’t own a single bright shoe for Spring.  I didn’t want to splurge on this trendy item so I purchased these from Victoria Secret in coral/hotpink.  Can’t wait to rock them on the blog!  I am smitten with pink but cobalt, yellow, orange…you name it…they are all fabulous additions that inject color,  interest and chicness.  Envision a white tee, white skinnies, statement necklace and these bad boys….I’d say you were ready for Saturday night!

Printed Blouse: It truly doesn’t matter the print or the style, just add a pretty printed blouse to your weekend wardrobe.  I would make sure it pairs nicely with your white skinnies, your boyfriend jeans and of course your blazer so that you can mix and match all your pieces to get the most from your wardrobe.  I adore this pastel bird print above (sold out through box service) but dynamic colors are great too.  I just ordered this sleevless blouse, aren’t the colors beautiful?  This brand Everly has great items too, I love the chevron print. If you want to keep it soft, this floral print blouse is gorgeous too!

Join Me!!!

I visited the SAVA boutique a few days ago to firm up some details and familiarize myself with the fall merchandise.  The collections are beautiful and I simply can’t wait for this event!  If you are in the greater Philadelphia area, I hope you will join me for a fun evening.  I have featured this brand many times before like here and here and they even gifted this dress in a giveaway!  I am smitten to put it mildly…the clothing is amazing but beyond that…..the brand is all about being socially conscious as every garment is produced in the US, more specifically in Philadelphia- creating jobs in the very community it retails in. Below are some photos of the boutique at 17th and Sansom…..See something you like but can’t make the event?  Visit their their online boutique here.  Happy Shopping!
