How to Dress Like Spring When It’s Still Cold

February 27, 2015

I think we can all agree that winter is bad and we are sick of it and it sucks and we hate it and it’s awful and we wish it would go away. Winter is like that obnoxious third cousin that always tries to hug you when all you want him/her to do is just get the f off of you. Shoo. 

One easy way to beat the winter blues is simply dress like it’s spring, but with cold weather clothing. Straight brill. And dressing for spring can be easy on the wallet, too — I’ve pulled together a springy outfit below and all of these pieces are $70 or less.

 

Spring Style for Cold Weather

As previously determined here on SST, white pants are no longer just for the spring and summer months — they are a year-round staple. Wilson, you’re welcome. Pairing these white jeans with the peep toe booties and a neutral sweater is a fresh take on dressing warmly yet with spring on the brain. And nothing says I’m loud, proud, and over winter like a bold red lip. Right? 

 

TGIF peeps, I’ll be toasting you tonight. Or in an hour.

Holiday Attire for Less — Or a Lot

November 6, 2014

Now that Halloween is offish over, it is time to start planning for the holidays. And by planning I mean financially planning. 

Dun dun dunnnn.

Between the Christmas parties, the myriad Christmas gifts and the now four birthdays that occur in my immediate family between November and Christmas (baby nieces are winter babies), this time of year things get a little tight. Tight like a tiger. 

I’ve already started buying my Christmas presents for my dear family members (more on that later) but I’m also planning on what, if any, holiday attire purchases I need to make. Wilson’s company Christmas party is coming up soon and I also have two December weddings. And for me personally, when I try to shop for a specific occasion in mind, I never find what I want and often settle for something that I’ll likely never wear again. Equaling a huge waste of money. 

So in an effort to stay ahead of any wardrobe meltdowns mishaps and money blunders, I’ve picked out these two pieces that would be perfect for a holiday occasion.

 

Holiday Attire -- Save and Splurge

The dress is very affordable at $79 and the silhouette would be flattering on both athletic and curvaceous shapes. It’s all about creating and accentuating a waist. The jumpsuit is absolutely fabulous with a less than fabulous price of $428. Ouch. So, it’s up to you and your wallet. Y’all talk it out and decide what you can afford. Remember, paying off your credit card at the end of each month is the new black. 

Tomorrow is Friday…

Some Really Awesome Pants

July 17, 2014

Happy Thursday everyone! I am ready for the weekend. And by the weekend I really mean ready for a drink.

I bought some amazing pants two weeks ago and have worn them three (ok five) times since and thought I’d share the love.

DISCLAIMER: These are expensive, but I got them for 50% off… Anyway, they are worth sharing regardless.

Ecru White Pants

ecru Springfield Pant

These things are so great. Made of a thick, stretchy fabric that is very wrinkle-resistant, these pants made by random designer Ecru are fantastic and I am so happy I bought them. Even though they are originally $165 — I got them for less, but still.. pricey for sure. Sorry. If you are looking for some great pants that are perfect for work — I suggest going up a size for work to make sure they aren’t too tight — and for play, these are for you. I am going to get them in other colors for the fall I think — black is a must and I love the beautiful camel color, would be great with boots and a navy blazer. Very Kate Middleton. 

Don’t forget to enter the SST Swaponz giveaway — it ends tomorrow! If you win you get five complimentary Swaponz smartphone case designs picked by yours truly. Don’t you like my use of complimentary instead of FREE! ?

I am ready for a mimosa. Who’s with me??

Summer Dresses on Sale

July 9, 2014

Yo! Wanted to draw your attention to these two great summer dresses. Wilson, I wanted to let you know to be expecting these. I’m not one for surprises. 

Both of these dresses are great for a quick + chic summer outfit — one that says I’m fashionably inclined, not too overdone and contentious of pit stains. Sorrrrryyy.

Just be careful because these beauties are both final sale, so if you aren’t 100% sure about your size, I’d probably pass and find something that isn’t final sale. Just sayin’.
