Find Of The Week: Black Satin Slip On Mules

Nothing like a it’s-too-good-to-be-true shopping find to get your week started.

Let me give you a small spoiler alert: they’re satin yet casual enough for everyday wear, they’re one of this season’s most sought after styles (mules, for those of you curious!) and they’re under $30.

Intrigued?!

Spring Office To Off-Duty

One of the challenges of gainful employment is finding a balance between your office wardrobe and your off-duty style.

Even if you work in the most casual environment, there is generally a notable difference between the types of clothing you’d wear to the office and the fashion you’d wear during your off-duty moments. Buying two separate wardrobes is not really a practical option — for both closet space and financial reasons.

So what’s a working gal to do?!

Friday Link Love, 1.80

Friday Link LoveHappy St. Patrick’s Day Friday! 

I have kids home from school today, so my wild and crazy St. Patty’s day debauchery will be at a minimum. We’re starting off the day at a fun, kid friendly brunch at a friend’s home.  I currently have this OVERNIGHT FRENCH TOAST baking away in my oven. It’s beyond delicious and pretty much a dessert that’s masquerading as a breakfast/brunch dish. Sneaky, sneaky. Whether you’re Irish or not (I’m 100% not, but my kids have an 1/8 of the Irish green in them), I love holidays that are just plain fun. So go grab a green beer — no one will judge if it’s before 5pm, and sláinte!

Oh, but first make sure you catch up on this week’s edition of Friday Link Love!

One Look, Three Budgets

Money… money changes everything.

(Thank you, Cyndi Lauper & Sirius/XM 80’s Channel for getting that song stuck in my head.)

When we see celebrities, fashion editors and street style fashionistas, we’re often tempted to say that they can look as good as they do because of their unlimited funds. “Real” people could never pull that style off without taking a second mortgage on their home, or going without food for a few weeks.

You know what? That’s only partially true.

My LEAST Favorite Trend Of The Season

cold-shoulder-cut-outs-trend

No matter how classic or timeless we want our wardrobes to be, so much of what we wear everyday is trend driven. It’s the trends that make our closet staples feel contemporary and fresh, even if they’ve been in our style rotation for a long time.

Unfortunately, while some trends are home run hits — boyfriend jeans, anyone!? — others are, well… questionable. I could wax poetic about the BEST trends you just have to try, but I thought it might be easier to voice my opinion about a trend that I’m advising you to take a pass on.

Are you ready for it!?

Pass The Mustard

I feel like the entire city of Cleveland was just given a dose of Xanax.

Everyone’s happy, smiling and out and about — not what you’d expect mid-February, yet that’s what happens when it hits 65 degrees on a weekend afternoon. All it takes is a small dose of sunshine to thaw out our city and our cold, barren souls.

Spring, you can’t get here soon enough!

February Wish List

Don’t worry, I’m not becoming one of “those.”

You know, the frou-frou pink hearts and flowers type. Even with Valentine’s Day less than 24-hours away, I’m holding strong to my minimalist, monochromatic ways! Well… except for this February wish list of fashion finds.
