Travel Wear #1


11.26.14AH and I are traveling this holiday weekend, so I thought I’d share a few of my capsule outfits. I love this dark grey jacket/shawl/cardigan because it is SO comfortable and easy to wear. The scarf adds some color and picks up the blue in the long sleeved t-shirt underneath. It’s great for either car or airplane travel where temps can vary widely. Yes, I’ll have to remove the jacket and scarf for security at the airport, but it’s really no big deal.

I’ll be wearing the jacket/shawl/cardigan several times during our trip with a variety of turtlenecks and t-shirts. I’ll throw in a couple of heavy sweaters and tights, but I prefer to travel with just one carry-on suitcase so I’ll keep things pretty simple. If I can snap some photos you’ll see them after we get back.

Have a lovely day!

What I wore:

Blue long sleeved t-shirt: Target
Jordache ankle skinny jeans: Walmart (Find them here)
Nine West black booties: DSW
Scarf: Target

Frugally yours,

Lori

Normal Fall


11.28.14We are experiencing “normal” Fall temperatures here, so I used that excuse to wear this awesome 3/4 sleeve sweater. I wore it a couple of times last year and have been waiting for just this type of day. And of course nothing could be better than my awesome leopard pumps to add the finishing touch. Animal print just makes me happy.

Have a lovely day!

What I wore:

Green sweater: New York and Co.
Jordache ankle skinny jeans: Walmart (Find them here)
Moda Leopard Pump: DSW (here)
Necklace: Sample Sale

Frugally yours,

Lori

Bits and Pieces


11.25.14
The great brown cardigan in today’s outfit is quickly becoming one of my favorites. It’s warm, soft, oh so comfortable and goes with lots of other pieces in my closet. Definitely a great buy for just under $30! And the fact that I can take it off if I get a tad too warm? Priceless.

A word about my apparent obsession with Jordache Jeans. It’s not often I can find jeans that consistently fit, don’t stretch out beyond all recognition and actually flatter my every changing body. I could pay more for jeans, but then I wouldn’t be holding up my end of the frugalista code: Never pay more if you don’t have too. These jeans are under $17.00, people. Seriously? I can have a whole wardrobe of great fitting jeans in different washes and colors. What’s not to love? You may not like skinny jeans, but for me, for now, it’s what works. I do have some bootcut jeans, but when I find myself reaching for these jeans over and over it tells me they’re something special. So, my advice for today is – when you find something that works, wears well, is comfortable AND affordable (is there a “quadfecta”? If it’s not a word, it should be!) buy it. In multiple colors. You’re welcome.

Have a lovely day!

What I wore:

Marona brown cardigan: Target (Find it here – and it’s on SALE!)
Light Chambray shirt: Forever 21
Jordache Denim leggings: Walmart (Find them here)
Tahari Black/brown Oxford shoes: DSW (similar)
Scarf: Sam Moon
Glasses: Zenni Optical (Find them here)

Frugally yours,

Lori

Simply Perfect


11.24.14

I hope you don’t get tired of seeing me with scarves. They’re just so wonderfully versatile and can change an outfit in an instant. I went through my collection recently and realized to my dismay that my favorite animal print scarf is A.W.O.L. Believe me, I will turn this house upside down to find it. It must. Be. Found.

Have a lovely day!

What I wore:

Green cotton sweater: Old Navy
Jordache Jeans: Walmart
Bandolino Riding boots: DSW
Scarf: Target
Glasses: Zenni Optical (Find them here)

Frugally yours,

Perfect Weather


11.21.14a

I thought I’d wear my white jeans again before it gets ridiculously cold again. It was seasonably lovely today – about 65 degrees which is nice and normal for Texas. The flannel shirt is not too heavy and the vest was just the right layer. And you know how I love my boots. A great, comfortable, work-worthy outfit. Gotta love it.

Have a lovely day!

What I wore:

Brown checked flannel shirt: Old Navy
Brown puffer vest: Costco
Jordache white skinny jeans: Walmart
Brown braided leather belt: Target
Bandolino brown riding boots: DSW
Pearl strands: Claire’s Accessories
Brown statement necklace: Sample Sale

Frugally yours,

Thank YOU!



11.19.14b

Next week is Thanksgiving, so I want to take a moment to thank YOU for reading my blog. I can’t tell you how much it means to me that you come back every day. Your comments make me smile and that’s more important to me than anything. I don’t get paid to blog – I do it because I love it. And because you keep reading. So, thank you!

How will you spend the holiday? We’ll be heading to NYC to spend the weekend with the lovely Miss B. This would be a great outfit to wear for Thanksgiving day. I might switch out the heeled boots for riding boots, but otherwise it would be perfect.

Have a lovely day!

What I wore:

Poncho sweater: Sample Sale
Jordache Denim Leggings: Walmart
Merona Black T-shirt: Target
Black leather boots: White House Black Market

Frugally yours,

Lori

Comfy Cozy


11.18.14

I found this awesome brown cardigan at Target last week. And the gold t-shirt. And the scarf. Sometimes it’s like that. I walk in the store and BAM – an outfit comes together in a matter of minutes. Other times I walk around for an hour and find…well..nothing. It’s kind of like a treasure hunt every time I go to Target. And I love a treasure hunt…

Have a lovely day!

What I wore:

Merona brown cardigan sweater: Target
Merona gold t-shirt: Target
Jordache Jeans: Walmart
Bandolino Brown Riding boots: DSW
Scarf: Target

Travel Wear


IMG_0568.JPG
Happy Monday! We’ve rushed headlong into winter, so layering is essential now. I left for a quick weekend trip to Austin with my BFF on Friday and this outfit worked really well for the drive. The cape/poncho/sweater (I’m not sure what to call it!) is light enough that it doesn’t add weight, but a nice outer layer that made it comfortable without a heavier coat. I added the scarf on my way out the door (you’ve heard me say that before), and it think it pulls just the right amount of color. What do you think?

Have a lovely day!

What I wore:

Morona black turtleneck: Target
Jordache Jeans: Walmart
Grey shawl collar sweater: Ross
Bandolino black leather riding boots: DSW
Glasses: Zenni Optical
Scarf: Target

Frugally yours,
