SHOP NOW!: A Versatile Velvet Shell for 70% Off!


My go-to uniform for any work or special occasion day includes a blouse & cardigan. The duo works for my aesthetic when mixing prints & solids with luxe fashion jewelry & accessories. Even though spring is right around the corner, I’m soaking up these chilly must-wear-velvet months as much as I possibly can, loving all of the end-of-the-season deals, especially this top:

SHOP: velvet double-v shell in black, silver grey, & deepest fig berry @LOFT (final sale: $39.88, extra 70% off with code: FRESH, available in sizes XS-XXL).

I bought the silver gray, which I haven’t worn yet, but I’m imagining it paired with a jeweled cardigan & houndstooth trousers, a blazer & dark denim jeans, or a flyaway cardigan & midi skirt with a textured belt. I also have my eye on the black & berry hues to add to my holiday rotation next year!

SHOP NOW!: Time & Tru Eyelet Dress + Earring Combinations!


As spring is just around the corner–hopefully–spring is definitely hitting stores & I can’t wait for lighter layers, bright hues, & dangly earrings, which is pretty much my warm weather wardrobe! The must-have staple for spring is an eyelet dress, which can be dressed up down, depending on where you’re headed. One classic cut dress with a flattering scallop detail at the sleeves & hem can be found by Time & Tru at Walmart:

SHOP: Time & Tru short sleeve eyelet dress in black soot, emerald bliss, vivid white, & lunar yellow @Walmart ($23.98, available in sizes XS-XXXL).

Aren’t these colors gorgeous?! Of course, I do wish for a magenta or bright purple too, but I’m pleased that this selection is offered in such a wide range of sizes as it is flattering, feminine, & stylish for every body type. I’d love to add a belt, denim jacket, & wedges before heading out the door for a sunny day in the village, joining the family for some festivities, or to work with a cardigan!

Also, with great dresses comes great accessories from Time & Tru:

SHOP: Time & Tru silver leaf filigree earrings, mixed metal hammered teardrop earrings, textured leaf drop earrings, & gold leaf drop earring @Walmart ($3.88 each).

Show Me the Shoes: 50% Off Must-Have Pumps!


I love a sleek stiletto pump! I love a pump with unique detail that offers more interest & luxury to any outfit. I love a pump in an unexpected color. I love a point toe. However, I haven’t been wearing pumps much since early in the pandemic, even though I have purchased my fair over the last year. Speaking of pumps…

SHOP: Express X Simon Spurr pumps in pitch black, stone, & electric blue @Express (on sale: $44.00, available in sizes 5-10).

I’m crazy about this electric blue, though I wish it was also made in the same croc embossed texture as the black & white options. Additionally, a wide width alternative would be helpful, as well as other neutral colors, like tan, gray, & navy to wear with a sheath dress & blazer outfit, bow-neck blouse & pencil skirt look, & jogger jumpsuit ensemble.

SHOP NOW!: Short-Sleeve Pajama Sets for Under $19!


It’s a slow, gray winter here on Long Island, but there have been plenty of cozy days & dreams of warmer weather. As I’ve had some down time to organize dressers, closets, & cabinets, I’ve been preparing for those warmer weather days, assessing wardrobe staples that I have & want to keep, what to donate, & what to get. Perhaps adulthood has instilled a much more regimented preparation of sleepwear, or that I’m so impressed by the ease my toddler daughter’s matching pajama sets, but I love to wear a set & have struggled to find a lightweight short-sleeve & cropped pant set to my liking…until now!

SHOP: Joyspun jewel neck flutter sleeve pajama set in 8 colors / patterns @Walmart ($18.98, available in sizes S-3XL).

I was immediately drawn to the leopard print & black with kisses sets, which are already stored for warmer months. Of course, there are so many pajama styles, including button-down tops or drawstring shorts, but I’ve always been looking for something soft without any buttons & something that colors my legs while sleeping. I’m really excited to break these out on a summer vacation or when hanging around the house for a lazy Saturday morning having pancakes with the family & cuddling up for cartoons. The material is very lightweight & I’m so pleased with the size inclusivity for the variety of colors & patterns. Joyspun has done it again!

SHOP NOW!: Cable Knit Sweaters for Under $15!


This sweater season has been one for the books! I love styling a cozy pullover sweater for a movie date night, a day at work, or for weekend errands! A cable knit detail is classic, but a modern take on cable knit is much more fun & stylish. In fact, my look for today, thanks in part to Instagram & Facebook votes, features a new cable knit sweater with past season windowpane pants & tweed buckle flats (see post here).

SHOP: Time & Tru mixed stitch sweater in apple juice, brilliant red, medium grey heather, winter white, & green chili @Walmart (on sale: $14.98, limited availability in sizes XS-2XL).

Here’s how I styled mine:

The texture of these sweaters coordinates well with a variety of textures for bottoms, including houndstooth, Buffalo plaid, polka dots, pinstripes, lace, jacquard, faux leather, or denim. How would you style these sweaters? Which color is your favorite? Where are you shopping for the best deals?

SHOP NOW!: LOFT’s Final Sale on Sequin Star Cardigans & Faux Leather Leggings!


Even though the holidays are over & everything is all hearts now for Valentine’s Day, I’m a sucker for sparkle & even stars on sweaters. Also, plenty of stores are bursting with spring-ready items, which means that there’s still prime time to get a great deal on final sale pieces, especially neutral cardigans that will jazz up any look.

SHOP: star sequin v-neck sweater in beige melange & charcoal @LOFT (on sale: $59.88, extra 60% off with code: LOVE, limited availability in sizes XS-XXL). After the code, they come out to under $24!

I have both of these & can’t wait to pair them with my printed trousers, in windowpane or houndstooth, along with brighter contrasting pieces in red, purple, or magenta. Since cardigans—especially sparkly ones—are my ultimate style weakness, I can’t wait to wear these over & over again, maybe even on date night with a metallic shell & faux leather leggings, like these:

SHOP: faux leather leggings in black & olive @LOFT (on sale: $59.99, extra 60% off with code: LOVE, limited availability in sizes XS-XXL). After the code, they come out to $24 before sales tax!

It’s still sweater season & when retailers start rolling out styles in spring colors, it’s time to click add-to-cart! The latest from Time & Tru that I can’t stop thinking about have got me inspired to pair with relaxed light denim jeans & sneakers for a weekend of errands, beige trousers & ballet flats for a day at work, a pleated midi skirt & high heels for a special occasion, or leggings & slippers for a cozy day around the house.

SHOP: Time & Tru long sleeve lightweight fashion sweater in lilac sky cheetah, pink coral cheetah, blue ash stripe, & faded rose stripe @Walmart (on sale: $16.98, available in sizes XS-XXXL).

SHOP: Time & Tru patchwork sweater in blue ash, orchid dream, peach margarita, & winter white @Walmart ($17.98, available in sizes XS-XXXL).

Show Me the Shoes: Braided Mules for Spring in 12 Colors!


The 2020s have seen a major shift in style, especially concerning footwear as 90s & early 2000s trends are slowly creeping back. While a stiletto heel is classic, block heels have returned & we’ll be seeing them in the spring. Additionally, open slides with braiding details will be trendy once again, & why shouldn’t they be? The mule style is easy to slide on & when it comes in multiple colors, the stylish possibilities are endless.

SHOP: A New Day Basil mule heels in 12 colors @Target ($19.24-$34.99, available in sizes 5-12 in medium & wide width).

Personally, I’m a big fan of the neutral/white mix, as well as both metallic gold & silver options. I envision them with a maxi dress, drop earrings, & floral wristlet for a summer date night or family party.

Additionally, nearly every major shoe retailer has some version of these mules, as well as ankle booties & flats, for the various seasons, mostly because the braiding detail is timeless & offers a cushion around the foot. Which color do you like best? Do you prefer a chunky heel or something slimmer? How would you style this shoe?

Inside a Style Blogger’s Closet: Sequins on Sweaters & Velvet on Leggings—These are a Few of My Favorite Things!


Every Sunday night, I try to take an hour or so to outfit prep, as stated in a previous post from September. When one planned outfit didn’t quite work out this week, I had to switch things up in a pinch, so that I could still get myself ready, get my daughter up & ready & arrive at work on time. This was the original planned outfit, but the pants were noticeably too short for a 30-degree winter day on Long Island & I wasn’t about to dig out my boots from another part of the house.

Then, upon changing up the clothing & keeping the accessories, this is what I ended up wearing:

Eventually, I realized that the sweater & leggings are newer pieces that I recently purchased & they’re still available to shop for. I’ll definitely be wearing these pieces (in different ways) throughout the season as the sweater is so versatile in terms of styling & color matching & the leggings can be dressed up or down with a tunic or hoodie & paired with boots, heels, or sneakers.

multicolored sequin v-neck sweater in ivory/gold & silver heather grey @LOFT (on sale $49.99, extra 50% off with code: 24HRS, limited availability in sizes XS-L).

Time & Tru velvet leggings in rose wine & olive dusk @Walmart ($14.98, available in sizes XS-3XL).

I already have the silver sweater, but I do have my eye on the olive leggings, especially since the velvet stripe down the side adds such a dressy & luxurious touch to any stylish and/or sporty outfit.

SHOP NOW!: A Staple Denim Jacket in 4 Washes for Under $20!


I mean, the headline says it all! All spring, summer, & early fall, my go-to outerwear item, if needed, is a denim jacket. I’ve had the same dark denim one for Dressbarn (similar here) for years & I’ve found doppelgängers in other washes that I’ve added to my rotation. I love contrasting something sparkly or printed with a neutral denim, especially since my everyday bottoms range in pattern or texture. What’s better is that today’s featured item is made in 4 washes, (mostly) available in a wide range of sizes, & is currently under $20!

SHOP: Time & Tru denim jacket in black, medium wash, brown (really the dark denim on the bottom left), & light wash @Walmart (on sale: $19.99, limited availability in sizes XS-XXXL).

I spotted them recently in stores, too, & the denim washes differ in person than they do when ordering online or through the Walmart app; however, my local store is full of denim jackets, so if you don’t have one just yet, you know where to find them!

How would you style a denim jacket? Do you have one already that you love? Which wash did you prefer most? For more stylish posts, check out: the spring dress you’ll want in every color, faux leather pull-on pants from LOFT, & Valentine’s bracelet gift ideas! Happy Styling!

SHOP NOW!: The Spring Dress You’ll Want in Every Color!


Currently, I’m never thinking about springtime until I log on to social media & see Style Darlings across the country, especially those in warmer locations, donning lightweight floral-printed tops, dresses, or pants. However, retailers are ready for pastels & preparing shoppers for Spring Break!

All late spring & summer long, I’m wearing a dress! It’s one piece & great for casual or dressy occasions, depending on how it’s styled. I love being able to share a dress that not only comes in several different colors, but is an inclusive option for all sizes! Case in point:

SHOP: A New Day sleeveless ballet dress in black, green, dark blue, pink, & taupe @Target ($28.00, available in sizes XS-4X).

I’m especially excited about the green dress, as it is my favorite color, but I can picture any of these styled with a cardigan & ballet flats for work, a denim jacket & slides for weekend, or a metallic shawl & strappy wedges for date night. The flattering fit & flare silhouette combined with the midi length makes for a classic dress option that’ll make for a fashionable spring season.

SHOP NOW!: Faux Leather Pull-On Pants from LOFT!


If there’s any kind of pant that I love, it’s a pull-on pair, especially after experiencing the changes in my body after having my daughter. Since last fall, I’ve been searching for pull-on styles in all different materials & patterns to alternate throughout the changing seasons. However, winter styles are currently hitting the clearance racks & spring is bursting through retailers’ doors!

SHOP: faux leather pull-on slim pants in black, rich aubergine, & lustrous olive @LOFT (on sale: $59.99, 70% off 3 styles with code: YAY, limited availability in sizes XS-XXL).

Loving these velvet pants from LOFT that seem to be in the same cut & a similar color scheme, I’m all about the faux leather option, but unfortunately, the black—which is what I’d experiment with—is no longer available in my size. I say “experiment” because I’m usually warm at work, giving a lecture or running from classroom to office, so I’d be reluctant to order the other colors if I couldn’t quite commit—but they sure are cute!

Accessories Access: The Boldest, Most Colorful Statement Necklaces of the Season!


It’s no secret that I love a statement necklace. Even when I doubt whether or not I should wear one because it’s too gaudy or extreme for a day in the office, I have to trust my first instinct in that I invested in the piece, have a vision for it, & wearing sparkly accessories is just a part of who I am, I should just embrace it, going for it with the right kind of look. During one of many recent forays clicking around New York & Company‘s website, I discovered the following 2 necklaces, 1 of which is already on stand-by to wear, & the other I’m waiting for to reduce in price.

SHOP: glass flower statement necklace @New York & Company (on sale: $35.97).

SHOP: multicolor glass link necklace @New York & Company (on sale: $23.97).

The flower necklace is the one I’m still thinking about, but if the right reward deal comes my way, I’ll definitely be adding it to my cart! With both necklaces, I love the color varieties, which offer a multitude of styling possibilities for a blouse, pullover sweater, jumpsuit, sheath dress, fit & flare dress, midi skirt outfit, or maxi dress. The cobalt blue tone stands out to me the most in these, but no matter what I may wear it with, I’d like to highlight the rich green & bright reds in it.

SHOP NOW!: Quilted Coats for $20!


Winter is in full swing & every day requires a topper, at least here on Long Island. There’s nothing wrong with a go-to coat that does everything you need it to, but isn’t it fun to try something different? I love the quilted look on outerwear, so this coat, in 7 stylish colors, has me hitting add-to-cart!

SHOP: Time & Tru quilted barn coat @Walmart (on sale: $20.00, limited availability in sizes: S-3XL).

I’m very drawn to the green or berry hues, but a classic black is always a great staple for mixing up your printed & textured cold weather accessories. What an awesome deal for a coat that was already an irresistible price originally at $29.98! How would you style this coat? What color do you like best? Do you like quilted designs?

SHOP NOW!: Puffer Coats for Under $13!


There are a few requirements that I have when it comes to investing in cold weather outerwear, including a hood & being hip-length; however, I am willing to forego said requirements if there’s a great bargain before me. Such is the case for this end-of-the-season marked down coat in 13 varieties!

SHOP: Time & Tru puffer jacket @Walmart (on sale: $12.98, limited availability in sizes S-3XL).

I’m especially fond of the olive green, red floral, or black / white / beige gingham varieties, but can’t decide, especially when I have about 4 or 5 coats that I alternate throughout the cold weather months. Either way, these coats are selling fast & all over Instagram with their 50% off price tag! Which jacket do you like the best? How would you style it? Are you interested in buying one?

SHOP NOW!: Peplum + Sparkle in 1 Sweater!


Usually, I love to add my own sparkly statement necklace to a sweater, playing up all the styling possibilities each time I wear it; however, when a piece has built-in jewelry, it’s kind of a win too, especially with a flattering peplum silhouette.

SHOP: rhinestone embellished peplum sweater in purple luxury & black @New York & Company (on sale: $25.98, available in sizes XS-XXL).

I have the black, which I really love & I plan on ordering the purple as well. It’s a flattering, true to size—I’m wearing the XL & can’t wait to try it with a variety of printed pants & pencil skirts.

Holiday Gift Style: The Prettiest Cardigans for Christmas Eve!


When trying to wrap my flu-induced mind around what I’ll wear for Christmas Eve, aside from a mask, I want to be comfortable & stylish. Last year & this year, the jewel-button cardigan trend has been popular, & I’ve participated my share in investing in it.

SHOP: jeweled button v-neck cardigan in black, whisper white, tango red, & soft spearmint @LOFT ($74.95, use code: NEW for 50% Off, available in sizes XS-XXL).

I wore the red during my all-red week earlier in December & had big plans for the mint, but then I was home sick all week. I have white & black look-slimes from Express from last year, which might be my go-to with velvet pants for tomorrow night.

At first, I wasn’t crazy about this sweater since the buttons weren’t functional, especially as an avid cardigan wearer, but I appreciate the posh simplicity of the look, highlighting the decadent jewel buttons as bling.

Holiday Gift Style: The Sweater Set of Your Athleisure Dreams!


If there’s one thing that the last two-and-a-half years have taught me about my style, it’s that comfort comes first. This helps ease my mind when it comes to balancing all of life’s responsibilities & not feeling weighed down or too restricted in an outfit. However, if you’re all about comfort & style these days, especially in the midst of the holiday season, check out the latest must-have sweater set by Time & Tru:

SHOP: Time & Tru short sleeve cardigan & wide leg pants set in dark navy stripe, natural tan stripe, black soot, & gray heather @Walmart ($25.98, available in sizes S-XXXL).

Not only can the pieces be broken up & worn with other separates in your wardrobe, but the soft, sweater fabric can be dressed up & down, depending on your plans. This look can work with a button-down shirt & mules for work, a denim jacket & tennis shoes when on the go, or a silk shell & clear heels when hosting a brunch. Although, if keeping it simple is your top priority, then grab your slippers & feel cozy in this sleek set!

If my December wardrobe has proven anything so far, it’s that I love sparkle! I’m always looking for ways to incorporate a sequin or jewels into my regular work looks—because, really, that’s all I do. I’m an effort to seek out a new addition for the season, I came across this must-have.

SHOP: Spadehill full sequin sparkle short sleeve tee in 8 colors @Amazon ($36.99-$48.99, available in sizes S-3X).

I love the idea of this tee for a variety of occasions, including a night out with the girls with skinny jeans & ankle boots, a cocktail party in a trumpet skirt & vinyl pumps, to the office holiday party with a cardigan & plaid trousers, or for date night in satin pants & evening shoes with drop earrings.
