Mixing Prints + Fitness Update

Spring means skirt weather! I decided to mix prints with this rabbit print utility blouse with this thrifted Tahari skirt. This outfit is actually comprised of some of my favorites. I thrifted this skirt about two years ago from a local Goodwill. I wear it ALL. YEAR. LONG. My mom actually found this. She says she was drawn to the color and the print. I love thrifting classic, good quality pieces.

The rabbit print blouse is no longer available from what I can see (it’s from last year), but I’ve included the link to a leopard print blouse from Loft.

Fitness Update:

This skirt used to be quite tight on me. I’m pleased to announce that it’s become very loose now. 🙂 I’ve been doing cardio three times a week for at least 45 minutes while watching what I eat (not to a point where I deprive myself of food that I love of course! Just being healthy). I’m pleased to say that I’m down 5lbs. I know it’s not a big number, but it’s taken me a lot of effort to lose these 5lbs.

Thanks for reading! ❤

I love shopping at Loft and Ann Taylor for good quality work-wear pieces. I have several staple pieces that I’ve purchased over the years from both Loft and Ann Taylor.

I purchased the sweater and skirt about a year ago, and I always get compliments when I wore both pieces. This was my first time wearing both pieces together for a feminine outfit like the one above.

Loft sweater (several years old), Loft rabbit print blouse (similar options), Amanda & Chelsea pants from Nordstrom Rack, Donald Pliner heels (thrifted)

This sweater is several years old. I’ve tried my best to take really good care of it, so it’s still in a good condition. I couldn’t find the exact rabbit print utility blouse, but Loft always has tons of utility blouses in cute, fun prints, so definitely check out the link above.

LOFT sweater (similar), LOFT short-sleeve button-up blouse, pants from Marshalls, Steven Madden loafers from Marshalls,

So excited to publish my very first post!

For today’s outfit, I layered the sweater over a LOFT button-up blouse that is also almost two years old. My office environment is on the more casual side of business-casual, so blazers are not necessary at all times (only when we have meetings).  My pants are by Larry Levine from Marshalls. They were also an awesome find that I can wear all year long since they’re not too thick, which would be problematic for the summer heat.

I’ve had this sweater for almost two years now, and I have to say I’m still in love with it as much as I was when I first purchased it. It’s not too form fitting, and I love the slits on the side. It’s easy to layer over button-up shirts like I did for this outfit.

LOFT always has amazing sales. Currently, they’re having a buy one, get one 50% off sale on tops and sweaters in addition to an extra 50% off promotion on all sales styles!

I can’t wait to share more amazing finds with you all in future posts! I want to share that you don’t have to spend a lot to have polished looks.
