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!

Which set do you like the best? What’s your ideal pajama style? Do you often wear sets? For more stylish posts, check out: sequin sweaters & velvet leggings, pastel sweaters for under $18, & braided mules from Target in 12 colors! Happy Styling!

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!

How would you style the cardigans? How often do you wear sequins? Which colors are you loving? For more stylish posts, check out: pastel Time & Tru sweaters for under $18, braided slide mules from Target, & the spring dress you’ll want in every color! Happy Styling!

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.

How would you style this dress? What color do you like best? Are you already refreshing your spring wardrobe? For more stylish posts, check out: faux leather pull-on pants on sale now, classic & stylish bracelets for a Valentine’s gift, & cozy sweaters with a spring twist! Happy Styling!

SHOP NOW!: Cozy Sweaters with a Spring Twist!


Of course, sweaters come in all shapes, patterns, & colors; we know they’re not exclusive to winter, but they’re definitely a go-to this season. If you’re looking for a sweater that seems to whisper springtime in that stylishly playful way that pastels do, check this out:

SHOP: Time & Tru long sleeve crewneck embroidery sweater in winter white & dark navy @Walmart ($22.98, available in sizes XS-XXL).

As much as the love the lightness of the white with the pink & blue details, I’ve got my eye on the navy to wear with various menswear-inspired navy trousers this season, especially as the spring semester is just around the corner. Either sweater can be styled with pants, jeans of all rises & cuts, as well as joggers or leggings.

How would you style this sweater? Would you dress it up or wear it casually? Do you prefer the white or the navy?

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? For more stylish posts, check out: a fashion flashback with Florence Pugh, sequin leggings & pencil skirts, & a chic houndstooth wrap for under $25! Happy Styling!

SHOP NOW!: A Chic Houndstooth Wrap for Under $25!


I’m not much of a fan of wraps or capes in my daily wardrobe rotation, only because I’m usually already layered in a cardigan, but when heading to an outdoor affair in the cooler months or settling in for a long movie in theaters, a wrap or cape is always in hand. One such topper that’s an especially great deal & super chic pattern can be found for under $25:

SHOP: Time & Tru houndstooth print wrap @Walmart (on sale: $24.97, one size).

I love the neutral color combination, especially the styling possibilities with a button-down & faux leather leggings with knee boots, a bodysuit & wide leg trousers with stilettos, or a turtleneck with straight leg jeans & ankle boots.

SHOP: The Get velvet pull-on trousers in black @Walmart ($26.00, available in sizes XS-XXXL).

SHOP NOW!: An Affordable & Comfortable Ponte Blazer from Aldi!


Sometimes, there’s fashion in unexpected places, like Aldi! I’ve definitely purchased boots, slippers, ballet flats, & socks for myself in their “fun aisle,” never paying much attention to the clothing provided since I couldn’t try it on & didn’t want to bother with returns. However, as I’ve been in the hunt for a comfortable & basic blazer recently, I was pleased to come across the Serra ponte blazer in black & tan @Aldi ($17.99, available in sizes S-XL).

While this item can only be found in stores, also rolled up in the package, I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for an affordable & easy piece to wear over a blouse, dress, or jumpsuit. I had to steam the blazer when I wanted to wear it; also, I found the sleeves were a touch long for me, wearing the XL), but I was pleased with the fit & how I styled it for a professional occasion.

I’ll likely not get the tan option, but it would be a nice option to coordinate with plaids & with rich, fall colors, like hunter green, burgundy, & rust.

Where have you found fashion & didn’t expect to? Do you shop Aldo’s fun aisle for wardrobe or home finds? What do you look for in a blazer?

SHOP NOW: A Flyaway Blazer Cardigan in 20 Colors!


When I look at topper items, like cardigans & blazers, I often expect to wear it for more than just the fall/winter season, always hoping to get the most bang for my buck. Of course, there are some exceptions for summer items or really heavy knits that work for those especially chilly days. When I want to mix things up, look professional, & cover up a bit, I like a “flyaway” cardigan or blazer to complete my look & highlight a not-so-obvious color in a printed top or dress. For example:


SHOP: EIMIN 3/4 sleeve blazer open front office work cardigan jacket in 20 different colors @Amazon ($22.99-$26.99, available in sizes XS-3XL).

I ordered the black & white options as neutral toppers for a variety of looks, very please with the lightweight, textured fabric, & fit. How would style this cardigan/blazer? Which color do you like the best? What’s your go-to business casual look?

Beauty Buys: The Best Black Nail Polish by Sally Hansen!


If you’re looking for a stylish & no-fuss way to incorporate some Halloween glam into your everyday look, my best recommendation would be to find some black nail polish. Of course, a glittery black is fabulous, but a classic matte black polish goes a long way!

Sally Hansen is one of my favorite nail polish brands for their affordable prices, variety of hues, & durability!

SHOP: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in black out @Target ($2.99).

SHOP NOW!: An Any Season Textured & Knit Sweater!


I’m a little sweater obsessed this time of year, though I wish it was consistently cool enough to wear one—at least here on Long Island. As I seek out different color combinations, sleeve lengths, & textures, I always have versatility on my mind, especially if a piece can be worn during the fall-to-winter transition & shift then to spring.

SHOP: Time & Tru textured knit pullover sweater with short sleeves in blue sea combo, mocha splash combo, & peach glaze combo @Walmart ($20.98, available is sizes XS-XXXL).

I love the sleeves on this top, which can be worn over a long sleeve turtleneck & with dark denim jeans or even with a pencil skirt & ankle boots. The top offers more possibilities when layered with a button down or matched up with leggings.

How would you style this sweater? Which color do you like the best? Do you often wear elbow length sweaters? For more stylish posts, check out: must-have velvet leggings from Old Navy, a lacy sweatshirt for under $18, & a plaid pull-on skirt from J. Crew! Happy Styling!

SHOP NOW!: Velour Leggings in XS-4X from Old Navy!


I hit up Old Navy last season BIG TIME for their velvet leggings, which will surely be a well-calculated investment on my part for this season, especially on cooler days & when I’m all about the leggings. In fact, a stylish look shouldn’t be uncomfortable or restricting, which is why I love how leggings have evolved & become more & more elevated in different materials. My go-to come winter time, no matter what my size is, is a tunic sweater & leggings… & why not velour leggings too? Also, I love Old Navy’s inclusivity (online, at least) in size availability for basics, such as velour leggings.

SHOP: high-waisted velour ankle leggings in black jack, raisin Arizona, & in the navy @Old Navy (on sale: $20.00 + 30% off with code: HURRY, available in sizes XS-4X).

Crew Factory! Happy Styling!

SHOP NOW!: A Lacy Sweatshirt for Under $18!


Most of my loungewear pieces are fuss-free. I don’t want to zip, tie, cinch, or button anything on me, so the details are pretty minimal; however, when it comes to adding a feminine embellishment to a top or sweater for cooler days, I’m on board! Of course, the whole point of a sweatshirt is to be cozy & covered up, but the trend of adding ruffles & lace or panels to a sweatshirt makes my heart happy & creates opportunity for a fashionable work from home look too.

SHOP: Time & Tru lace sleeve sweatshirt in black soot & papyrus beige @Walmart ($17.98, available in sizes XS-3XL).

While there’s a wide size range, I’d love to see this top in rich, jewel tones, such as hunter or violet, or bright colors, like red, magenta, & aqua. I’ve ordered it in black, hoping to pair it with velvet leggings & a statement necklace for a stylish luncheon with my gal pals or a casual Friday at work. However, you can never really go wrong with Time & Tru’s selection!

SHOP NOW!: Velvet + Final Sale = Stylish Bargain!


As the weather gets cooler & the layers start layering, I love a velvety texture to add a luxurious, fancier vibe to my look, whether it’s for the office / classroom, a weekend event, or night out with the girls if my husband. Last year, I was all about the velvet pants & leggings & now I’ve got my sights set on a velvet tops! For example:


SHOP: velvet puff sleeve top in black, bold Bordeaux, & deep spruce green @LOFT (final sale: $29.88 + extra 40% off for StyleREWARDS, limited availability in sizes XXS-XXL).

After I added each of these to my cart, I was floored to see their final price was $17.93! I can’t wait to pair these with a lace pencil or pleated midi skirt & a cardigan for work, jacquard or plaid pants a holiday party, dark denim jeans for a family gathering, or dressy palazzo pants for a special occasion. Not to mention that the jewel tones hues would really enrich an antique gold statement necklace with lots of bling or a more delicate pewter pendant too.
