Outfit Frenzy

It’s been a long while since I’ve shown y’all my recent wears. This is mostly what I’ve been wearing in our “winter” months but you’ll see some transition outfits, especially when it’s super nice outside but my classroom is still an ice box.

I love this time of year for style because you can play with pattern and color mixtures by using layers. Also, I love boot season! This used to not be a thing but now I’m sad when boot weather ends, so I try to hold out as long as possible!

One common theme I noticed when looking back at my outfits from the past few months was the amount of burgundy/wine I wore. I love this color because of its warm hue and its ability to pair well with neutrals and even some unexpected colors.

Also, this SUPER comfy swing dress from Old Navy made its presence known! I have this dress in a magenta striped as well. Sometimes when I felt like I needed some extra warmth but still wanted to wear a dress, I would either pair the dress with a cardigan or fleece-lined tights. Otherwise, I would just let the dress shine on its own.

I also love wearing sweaters and scarves! They are easy ways, especially here in Charleston, to keep warm while staying stylish.

Note: All of the pants you see in these outfits are some version of Pixie Pants from Old Navy! They are literally the only pant I wear to work because they are comfortable but professional and are a great cut and length for either boots or flats. I recommend every woman to check them out!

I also purchased this really cute dress from a pop-up boutique for Valentine’s Day! I’m excited to wear it out when it gets a little warmer for church or date/girls nights!

Now that the weather has been warming up and been so nice the past few weeks, I’ve wanted to liven up my outfits with brighter and lighter colors! But, I’ve still had to keep an element of layering to my outfits since my classroom is always cold.

You’ll notice the little peek of stripes by my wrist. This day was really cold compared to the last month and I needed a little extra layer to keep warm haha!

This last outfit I’m most excited about right now because I just got this shirt from LOFT’s new spring line. I saw a lot of great pieces in their new line that I look forward to checking out and reporting on (a lot of bold prints, big florals, and ruffles).

So now it’s your turn! Which outfit do you like most? What is your favorite part of styling outfits or this part of the year for fashion?

Poshmark & 5 Summer Outfits

It’s Fashion Friday y’all! Today I’m going to share with you my recent experience with Poshmark, a site for selling clothing and accessories, as well as some of my summer outfits.

Since moving to Charleston, I have gone through my closet several times, collecting items to sell or donate. This summer I decided it was time to do something with those items. I went through the bags of clothing, sorting whether I was going to donate it or try and sell it. The items I’ve chosen to sell have been added to my closet on Poshmark.

Because this was my first time using Poshmark, I wanted to share my experience!

When you are ready to upload pieces to your closet, it has to be done on your phone; however, you can load photos from your phone’s gallery, Google Drive, or Google Photos. The only downside is that you can only upload one at a time, so it took a little longer than expected.

Once you choose your piece, you complete the details on it, include a name, description, size, price, and any other information you want to share.

After your pieces are listed, you can share them via social media with ease. I found that after I started listing items, other Poshmark users began to follow me, which was great! And I realized that following them back or finding others to follow would help get my closet more exposure.

All in all, my Poshmark experience so far has been nice and I’m hoping to get my items sold to enjoy some newer pieces from the money earned. Click on the image below to access my closet to check out the pieces for sale!

Do you use Poshmark? Or how do you get rid of closet items you don’t want anymore?

Style Saturday

It’s been a while since I’ve done an outfit post. You can check out past ones here, here, and here.

As the weather gets warmer, my outfits have changed slightly. I still tend to get chilly in the AC, so most of my outfits still consist of a layer of jackets and cardigans. Here are ten of my favorites from the past two months.
