Shopping: Fall Jackets

Shopping: Fall Jackets

If you follow my Instagram stories you’ll know that I recently bought a new jacket, that is perfect for fall. I was especially excited that I bought it from one of my favorite stores, the Loft Outlet and that it was on sale! What was originally a moto-style jacket for $119.00 went down to $27.88! Yes you read that right! I had thrown out my faux leather jacket during the spring due to so much wear and literal tear, and was in need of a new one. The Loft is like Target for me, when I go into those stores there’s a 99% chance I’m walking out with clothes. You can read about pieces from Target that I’ve bought here, here and here.  Check out my try on stories on my Instagram to see me trying out the latest Who What Wear for Target collections among others as well. And be sure to tune into my IG stories EVERY TUESDAY for my Fashion Tip Tuesday series, in where I previously gave a tip about shopping at the Loft and finding sales there.

The jacket I bought from the Loft Outlet fits like a glove. Its perfect for fall, with pockets deep enough to put things in and extremely stylish to boot. Its also classic enough to last me seasons of cold weather to come but it’s grey, so it steps out of the traditional black, that a moto style is usually made in. Here are similar options for you to add to your outerwear wardrobe. The post includes affiliate links.

Dark Greys

Light Greys

Greys with print or texture

 

And of course if you really want a traditional moto style….

You can’t go wrong with this style. It can be a staple year round and in diffrent colors like grey it can feel fresh. Stay tuned to my Instagram to see me in the one I bought from the Loft Outlet. Do you have a moto style jacket? Is it in the traditional black, or in a different color or print? Let me know in the comments and on social media.-T.S.

Como Ponerte Este Blusa de Target en cinco Estilos

5 expemlos en como puedes ponete esta blousa de Target.

Algo que deberias saber sobre mi es que amo a la tienda Target! Se que no hay Target en Puerto Rico, tristemente! Pero ojala un dia lo habra. Compro de una linea de ropa en Target en particualr, que se llama Who What Wear. Una linea creada por blogueras, y que combina piezas perfecta para la oficina y el fin de semana. Cada nuevo etapa o estacion que tienen una nueva coleccion, la coleccion anterior va en venta. Ese es mi tiempo favorito para compra nuevas piezas. La linea tiene accesorios y prendas, que tambien son muy ´´trendy¨ y aun classico. En mi ultimo ¨´Target run¨ como lo llamn aqui o en la ultmia vez que fue a Target compre unas piezas desde la linea Who What Wear. Este  blousa verde que tiene un ´´print´´ o impresion de flores en blanco y negro fue una de esas piezas. Tambien compre una blusa con un impresion en blanco y negro y una flada ¨midi¨ en un azul real, que combine para un ¨look¨para New York Fashion Week. Lo siguientes son cinco ejemplos en como puedes ponerte esta blusa de Target. Este entrada tiene enlaces de afiliados.

 

  1. Lunes: En este “look” he emparejado la blusa con una falda gris de la tienda Loft y tacones en el color ´nude´´ desde Payless. Tengo pusto una cinta del pelo y aretes para completar el conjunto.

2. Martes: En este conjunte jugue con colores, elegi unas panatalones en un color de vino desde The Limited. La cintura tiene una banda en negro, que empareje con los zapatos. Aretes sencillos completan el conjunte.

3. Miercoles: Con este conjunte me quede en la familia de colores verde y azul con el collar y los tacos altos desde H&M. Los pantalones son negro y los aretes son en dorado.

4. Jueves: Empareje la blusa con un ¨midi’ falda tambien desde la tienda Loft. Tacos alstos en morado desde Payless y aretes en oro terminan el conjunte. Mis gafas so de Zenni, una tienda por internet que tienen precios bajos.

 

5. Viernes: Para un ¨look´´ de fin de semana elegi mahones en el estilo de ´´moto´´. Los tenis son de Steve Madden y complete este conjunte con arretes en un estilo ´´hoop´´ o aros.

Ojala que te di inspiracion en como puedes llevar o ponerte un print o impresion como esta. Te gusta usar los ´´prints´´ o eres mas amante de los colores solidos?- T.S.

5 Ways to Wear the Robe Top Trend

Robe Trend

Currently trending is the daytime pajama look. Done correctly the trend is sophisticated, sexy and even office appropriate.  Not to mention it is extremely comfortable! On a recent trip to H&M, like any good bargain hunter I found myself browsing the sale rack. And lo and behold I found a robe top that I loved and was also obsessed with the price (originally $50, paid $7.69). Now the trick to buying trends at fast fashion stores like H&M is to ensure the garment has a few things. Here are a few tips on buying trends at fast fashion stores that will ensure a long life in your closet. * This post has Shopstyle affiliate links within it. Upon you clicking or buying from my link I receive a percentage of the final sale.

  1. Cut: The cut should be classic, if its a very bold print. You also want to make sure its not too short or long on you. Buying a trend that doesn’t go with your proportions will make you look odd.
  2. Color/Print: The color should be neutral if the cut is what is making it trendy. A classic color like black will make the trend more wearable throughout seasons and years.
  3. Fabric: The fabric should not be too thin, the thinner the fabric the faster it takes on abrasion from wearing and washing. Making the fabric pron to deterring and breaking down. You can also look at the fabric content and wash care instructions on the tag to help you decide.
  4. Trims: Buttons, linings, pockets and zippers should be working perfectly. All these items are considered trimming in the fashion industry, and you should pay attention to how they look and work on any garment. Why buy a garment when the zipper doesn’t close properly?

So with those tips in mind, don’t be afraid of fast fashion, because they CAN have a long life in your closet. Another reason to continue your use of fast fashion are programs like H&M Conscious were you can bring in any garments you don’t want and receive %15 off your next purchase. Through the program old garments get resold, reused or recycled through various programs and industries that collaborate with H&M. Fashion is still a big component to the pollution problem. Although with the help of programs, designers and by being self-educated on how to buy and take care of fast fashion items this problem can be remedied.

Here are 5 ways to wear the robe top trend:

  1. Black on Black: For this look I went with a simple black dress, but added a pop of color with Aldo pumps. I would also do an all black look and wear black pumps or sandals.

2.Casual Party/ Event or Office Day: I paired the robe jacket with this black and white Victoria Beckham x Target collection dress to keep the look in the same color family. Flats make the look perfect for a casual event. I’d wear this to the office as well, just add heels if you want to pump up the look. For this look I tied the belt with a bow in the back for sleeker look.

3.Office Appropriate: Keeping the robe closed and pairing it with a knee length skirt makes the trend office appropriate. The robe acts as a blazer but in a more relaxed form for this look. Add a blouse and pumps to pull the outfit together.

4. Casual for Everyday Wear: In this look I picked my favorite Target jeans and a camisole that has a lingerie feel because of the black lace. The lingerie/lounge wear is accented in both the blouse and robe top, but the belt adds a waist and creates structure in the look.

5.Classic With a Pop of Color: An office jogger like the one I have on adds structure yet keeps the outfit relaxed. A classic t-shirt or cami underneath in a neutral like black, white or tan makes the pop of color and the robe stand out. For this look I also tied the belt in the back with a bow.

Shop the look:

 

If you want to test out the complete sleepwear look for daytime make sure the top and bottom are a matching set. Pair it with pumps and clean accessories to pull off the look. Which one of my looks do you like the most? Have you tried this trend yet? Would you dare?- T.S.

Must Have Coats

must have coats

It is COLD up here in the North East, so its safe to say we might still be using our thick coats well into February. Let’s all do a little prayer that we don’t have a snowstorm in February, I’ve totally been stuck indoors for my birthday because of it.  Although one opportunity granted to you because of the cold is the ability to take out great coats. I myself have a collection and love to switch them around. It’s also a great way to stay fashionable and show your style while staying bundled up. From patterns to colors and cuts the possibilities to standout with a great coat can be endless. Here is a great selection to add to your collection of coats. Don’t have one yet? Start one!

 

Shearlings and Furs- A great way to keep warm is to infuse a faux fur or faux shearling coat into your wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to pick a bold color like the red Alice and Olivia piece.

Puffers- A popular coat no matter what the price range is, the puffer, will always be a go to. I own a dusty rose one in velveteen similar to the floral Collusion piece. All though puffers draw attention own their own because of its shape, a bold print will add extra flair to your outfit.

Swing Coats- This classicly cut coat will never go out of style. I practically love that it can be an everyday coat or taken out for special occasions. Because of the classic cut don’t be afraid of a bold print like the Asos animal print piece. It still has a sleek put together feel thanks to the cut.

Teddy Coats- I haven’t delved into teddy coats yet but it’s on my list of maybe’s. Feel free to combine trends as the French Connection piece does with its robe style cut.

Do you have any of these in your coat collection? While I have some of these in my collection I definitely see some that I would love to add to my closet.  Which ones are you adding?- T.S

Fashion Wish List

my fashion wish list

What’s on your Christmas wish list?  Whether you like to wait for Christmas to open gifts or you gift yourself presents, here are some items I’m currently loving. I’m planning a road trip to Florida for Christmas so I must admit that hotter weather is on my mind. It’s so cold here in the north-east and I’m never a fan! But don’t worry I added some statement coats and boots because even when you are bundled up you must remain fashionable! Shopstyle Collective affiliate links are used within this post for easy shopping! ( I get a small cut) You can click the heart on the items you love and enter your email. You’ll also be notified if a price drops on something you feel you don’t want to buy right now. Here’s my fashion wish list.

 

My hot weather wish list since I headed down south… I’m thinking good wishes aka hot weather! Light sweater-like fabric should be good for Florida’s cooler nights. While you can’t go wrong with a comfy pair of jeans.

But back to reality, here are some great boots that would look great in my closet! I love a great black boot that goes with everything. I’m running the pair I got from Call it Spring into the ground. I think its time for new ones! The Aldo and Frye pairs are calling my name!

I am a lover of statement coats. They’re an easy way to avoid freezing to death while still looking fashionable. Rich colors are a great choice if you want to make a statement, while neutrals are always a go-to.

Who doesn’t need more jewelry? I particularly love gold and tortoise pieces, which are timeless and classic. I do love the BaubleBar pair though, they’re a unique shape in sleek resin.

What’s on your fashion wish list? Let me know your thoughts on the pieces I chose and what you plan to buy!-T.S.

90’s Baby- The Trend Comeback

90’s grunge, hip hop, East Coast vs West Coast, fanny packs, ruffle socks, slip dresses, butterfly clips, colorful rubberband hair styles… its all back! And I love it! As a 90’s baby I can’t help but feel happy and nostalgic that these iconic trends in fashion are back. I’m loving the updated sleeker versions of these trends, as if they are purposely made for the 90’s child now traversing adulthood. Now don’t get me wrong I don’t want to see the ugly sweater trend come back (I’ve seen this already and I still don’t like it!) and I’m sure there’s other trends that can stay in the past. Although overall I’m really loving it, here are some pieces that I’m loving. Are you loving the 90’s comeback? Affiliate links included within this post.
