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.

Which color do you like the best? Do you love to strut in stiletto pumps like these? How often do you wear embossed footwear? For more stylish posts, check out: pajama sets for under $19, final sale on sequin star cardigans from LOFT, & Time & Tru pastel sweaters! Happy Styling!

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!: 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?

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!: 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!

How would you style these pants? Which color do you like the best? Are you shopping end-of-the-season deals right now? For more stylish posts, check out: classic bracelets for Valentine’s Day gifts, cozy Time & Tru sweaters with a spring twist, & puffer coats for under $13! Happy Styling!

Accessories Access: Stylish Earrings Sets in Gold & Silver!


It’s a very rare occasion that I’m actually stuck with no idea what to wear, despite my plethora of options. When it comes to jewelry, I usually decide on the finer details the morning I am getting ready, especially for the work day ahead. Also, I have 5 piercings in each of my ears, which I fill every single “leaving the house” day & my collection continues to grow & sparkle. While I do love a long, dangly drop earring for a more dramatic look, my go-to for all 5 piercings is a stud. I love finding different stud sets so that the options coordinate together, but I also love mixing up new picks with some old favorites. For example:

SHOP: shooting star stud earring set in gold & silver @LOFT (on sale: $22.50 with code: TREAT).

Fashion Flashback: Remembering Vivienne Westwood’s Legacy on the Red Carpet & Screen!


British fashion legend Vivienne Westwood passed away today at the age of 81. Her career began in the 1970s, proving relevant every decade with its blatantly refreshing combination of punk meets glam. Westwood’s signature corseted design with a deconstructed sweetheart neckline has drawn the attention of celebrity A-listers for good reason, especially as many stars have returned to the label time & time again, including Euphoria’s Zendaya, singer Gwen Stefani, Oscar-winner Jessica Chastain, The Crown’s Helena Bonham-Carter, Wednesday actress Gwendoline Christie, the always stylish Kate Beckinsale, Disenchanted star Amy Adams, The Great lead Elle Fanning, pop singer Katy Perry, Westworld actress Thandiwe Newton, & of course, Sarah Jessica Parker’s iconic Carrie Bradshaw in her gown from the Sex & the City film, which reappears in the upcoming second season of And Just Like That.

Cover Craze: Anya Taylor-Joy Dominates Harper’s Bazaar Australia’s December 2022 Issue!


One star whose style, talent, & influence has been on the rise in recent years is model-turned-actress Anya Taylor-Joy, who you might recognize as the beauty & force behind Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit, as well as the 2020 adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, & most recently, The Menu, for which she has earned another Golden Globe nomination. However, it’s Anya’s compelling cover for Harper’s Bazaar Australia that has me excited, featuring the star in tailored & dreamy looks by Christian Dior with diamonds from Tiffany & Co..

The article, written by Frances Hedges, highlights Anya’s on-screen transformations, international experiences having grown up in Argentina, how fame has impacted her life, as well as future projects, such as Laughter in the Dark and Nosferatu.

Styled by Jillian Davison & photographed by Georges Antoni, Anya poses horseback in a variety of red, leather, lace, & menswear-inspired pieces that perfectly capture her balance between the delicate & dynamic.

SHOP: A New Day Maddison sneakers in silver @Target (on sale: $20.99, available in sizes 5-12). This week only, the sneakers, also available in white, are reduced from their original $29.99 price!

I do love a good sparkle, so between the shoelaces & trim detail along the back, I hit add-to-cart rather quickly, thinking about all of my leopard sweats, tunic tops, & leggings.

Holiday Gift Style: A Luxurious Cardigan for Less!


At a recent school function for my daughter, I took note of a comfortable, yet luxurious looking open-front cardigan another mother was wearing & was instantly inspired to research it online & share it with readers. For one, I love the regal button details on the sleeves, even though I’m usually the type to roll up my sleeves, but also because of the color variety, despite the lack of inclusivity with sizing.

SHOP: JM Collection open-front cardigan, created for Macy’s @Macy’s (on sale: $29.75, limited availability in sizes XS-XXL).

I’m tempted to invest in the mustard and/or one of the greys simply because I love the boldness of the gold buttons against the colors, & knowing how I’m always searching for ways to include grey in my wardrobe rotation. Also, I would recommend styling this sweater with a bow-neck blouse & velvet leggings for some texture, over a button-down shirt & with dark wash jeans, or with any sheath dress + knee boots combination.
