This look was 100% inspired, okay, totally copied form Annette from A Vintage Splendor (she’s amazing, go check her out!) while she was doing her 31 days of jeans. I love when you see a outfit that gives you all the feels and everything just falls into place. I already had the top. I found this green striped one a few years ago at Salvation Army and shortly after I saw Annete pair a striped top with a striped blazer I just happened to see this blazer on sale from H&M. Okay, so I bought it. Duh. Perfect price, perfect fit. This will obviously be a staple in my closet. My favorite vintage Eddie Bauer high waisted jeans and some simple strappy sandals from Zara completed the look with ease. Btw these Zara heels are perfection. So chic and classic. I love how the look with the raw hem on the jeans. Always have to edge up the classic pieces!

Valentine's Day (thrifted)

I think this will be a reoccurring post every year. If you want to see last year’s thrifted valentine’s day looks click here. I love showing all of you that you can look chic and you don’t have to spend a ton of money while doing it. You can ship the thrift store for anything.

I found this cute sheer (you know I’m all about the sheer) heart print top at a local thrift store two weeks ago and thought it would be perfect for dinner with my Boo to celebrate Valentine’s Day. These pants are a staple in my wardrobe. Also thrifted. You can find the basics at a thrift store too! I love the long lean line they create and the wide leg is everything. A pop of red (always) with the purse. I totally forgot to put on a red lip before taking these pictures and I’m pissed. Lol. Oh well, just imagine a bold red lip.

I’m ready to celebrate love day with my man!

always animal print.

Always choosing an animal print. It’s an easy basic that makes a statement. I found this one at H&M last month and it was only $15! How crazy. The quality is great and it looks way more luxe than the price. I love when I find gems like this at traditional retail stores.
