Outfit Of The Day

Target has a new line out in their women’s clothing department that has the best basics.  I did a little try on the session today at lunch and found so many versatile must-have pieces.  I tend to have a classic style when it comes to clothing but I love layering jackets and adding accessories to complete the entire look.

The new Universal Thread line at Target has so many great pieces.  In my opinion every wardrobe needs:

  1. Denim Jacket
  2. Denim Dress
  3. Classic solid top
  4. Olive jeans

Leopard coat two ways!

Hello Winter!!  What’s better than a leopard coat?  A reversible leopard coat.  You decide what mood you’re in.  All out leopard or just a hint of leopard.  I know having options makes tolerating this cold weather so much more bearable for me.  🙂

Here is a step by step guide on how to use Trunk Club Women and what I got for a holiday party.  

Trunk Club Women is a great service:  

  • If you need a cute outfit for an event and don’t have time to shop
  • You don’t enjoy shopping but you do like looking good
  • You want someone to help you style outfits and put a complete look together
  • You want to add a few current pieces to your Winter wardrobe

Step 1:  Go to the site:  http://www.trunkclub.com/invite/APLJPZ

You’ll be prompted to answer a series of brief questions.  First, you specify your preferred style, what you’re shopping for, clothing colors, patterns, etc.  Then you’ll answer body type-related questions, like areas on your body you’d like to disguise, and what fit of jeans you prefer and what you’re looking for in shoes.  Finally, you’ll give some price ranges that fit your budget and, favorite brands.  Presto! Your account is set up.

Step 2:  One of Trunk Club’s stylists will contact you to get more specifics on what you’re shopping for.  They’ll create a virtual “look book” before your items are shipped, so you’ll be able to edit what items show up at your door (i.e.  omitting ones you know you wouldn’t wear, not your style, etc.)  You’ll also have an opportunity to give your stylist feedback, so they’ll be able to refine what items they pick for you or add anything that is missing.

Step 3

Your trunk arrives at your doorstep!  Take your time trying on each item, so you see what you’d like to keep.  My stylist Lyndsey even sent me ways to style each outfit.

Trunk Club for Women Box

Step 4

After trying everything on, you’ll be able to give feedback (i.e.  item is too big, own similar item, didn’t fit, etc.)  After you have decided what you want to keep you schedule a pickup via the Trunk Club app and it’s as simple as selecting the day, Trunk Club sends you a shipping label and you set it on your porch.  DONE.  It doesn’t get any easier than that!

Here is what was in my recent trunk:

Another great perk of Trunk Club is if you need anything altered, all you do is take the item(s) and your receipt to any Nordstrom; they’ll take care of the rest.

If you like anything from my trunk, all of those items are available or order your own trunk, you deserve it.  🙂

Fitting room frenzy at J Crew Outlet.

This past weekend I made a whirlwind trip to the Premium Outmall Mall  and had to share some of the cute coat finds from JCrew Factory Outlet.  Everything is on sale.

I love winter coats because I work in and out of my car all day long.  There are some days I don’t take my coat off so I’m always on the lookout for cute coats each season.

Here are five of my favorite coats from JCrew factory outlet.

The Classic Trench Wool Coat

For more expensive pieces in my wardrobe I tend to have a classic style.  That is why I ADORE this wool topcoat.  I cannot decide what color to buy.  I tried on a size 6 in the navy and it was too roomy even with the sweater on.  The camel/sand color I tried on the size 4 it fit great but if you tend to wear heavy bulky items in the fall and winter it may be too snug.

The Vail Parka coat with fur hood

I’ll admit  I love all things fur so I had to try this coat on.  This was a size 4 and needed a 2.  This coat tends to run really big so I’d size down one.

The quilted vest and coat

In the fall I love layering with quilted vests while I’m out running errands, hiking with my boys, or even for a more casual look for work.  They have 6 fun colors.  This layer adds so much polish to an outfit.  Then when you need more warmth they have the casual quilted coats.  They are so comfortable and come in several colors.  I wore a small and that size was perfect.

These tops are fall and winter staples.  The navy and white gingham button down can take you from work to weekend.

I am obsessed with the navy and white striped waffle funnel neck sweatshirt.  Its longer so it covers your rear.  Perfect for jeans or with leggings and runs true to size.  You will be weekend ready in a flash.

XOXO  Sarah

Nordstrom-Tunic

This tunic is such a versatile piece.  Since Fall weather will be here any day now we’ll be looking for longer sleeves.  These tops come in several colors and are a little longer if you are like me and don’t want short tops when I’m sporting my leggings.

You can wear these tops with jeans, leggings, and even faux leather pants.

Since I am all about the layers for a more polished look I love this with the faux fur vest I got last year.  It would also be adorable with a moto vest or cardigan.

This jewelry is icing on the cake.  Collections by Joya a locally based St Louis company designed this amazing tassel necklace, bracelet, and drusey ring.  It completes the entire look to perfection.

A-New-Day

 

Hello.  Its Target Style Tuesday.  I am loving the Fall weather here in St Louis and Target is packed with amazing Fall essentials.

If you have not seen the A New Day collection at Target in person you have to check it out the next time you are in.      I love having versatile pieces in my wardrobe I can wear so many different ways without breaking the bank.

Fall weather is all about layers.  It’s cool in the morning and gets warm in the afternoon.  This A New Day oatmeal sweater kept me warm while hitting the outdoor shops in St. Charles.

It is the perfect layering sweater to go with jeans, leggings, dresses, even joggers.  Throw it on and go.  It comes in 3 colors.

Fit tip:  I am 5″4 wearing a small and it hangs to my knees.

A New Day Sweater (Oatmeal) | A New Day Button Down Shirt | White Jeans (no longer available, but similar Vince Camuto white jeans) | TOMS Peep Toe Booties (36% off) | DV Tote Handbag | Fur Pom Pom Keychain (found in Target dollar spot, but similar Free People Pompom charm) | Target Floppy Hat (similar) | Collections by Joya – Bracelet, Initial Necklace, and Allegra Necklace

A-New-Day

When it warms up the sweater comes off and I found this dark denim button down.  I love the classic cut and style of this shirt.  There are literally thousands of possibilities with dark denim tops.  I am dying to wear this with my new leopard coat but until it gets cold this would be great with a cream pleated skirt, olive jeans, light wash denim, or the white denim like I’m wearing.  I’m wearing the top in a small.

Let’s talk accessories! (My FAVORITE)  When you have great versatile basics like the Oatmeal sweater, dark denim button down, and white jeans the sky is the limit with accessories.  Today I was keeping it neutral.

Hats!  I love wearing hats for many reasons, one it shields my face from the sun and two I don’t have to worry about wind-blown hair.  Yeah!

Hat advice:  If you don’t think you’re a hat person I say just try some on.  Target is the perfect place to try because their hats are not expensive.  Wearing hats immediately makes your look more fashionable and no one has to know you just didn’t have time to fix your hair.  Lol.

A-New-Day

This DV tote is amazing it looks so expensive.  It feels like suede and has these sweet little metal details.  It’s perfect for weekend shopping and stashing all your kid’s snacks and toys but during the week its big enough for my laptop and work essentials.  This fur pom keychain I got in the dollar spot area for $3 (I bought every color) and I can’t tell you how many people have commented on it.  I love adding little details to mix it up.

My bracelet is by a local St Louis designer Collections by Joya.  This Jasper bracelet is one you could wear almost daily.  The quality and simplistic design are amazing.  Additional bonus:  Collections by Joya is a give back company that helps women all around the world so with every purchase you are helping women in need.  Win-Win!!

That is all my Target Style Tips for this Tuesday.  Are you in the mood for a #targethaul?
