Mixing Prints + Fitness Update

Loft rabbit print blouse (old | Similar), Tahari skirt (thrifted), Donald J Pliner heels (thrifted), Zara trench coat (thrifted)

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! ❤

Basics Ensemble + LOFT Extra 50% off Sales Styles

2017-01-25-15-43-43\

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.
