My Perfect Outfit

by dietingfashions on December 5, 2011

Top: Ann Taylor Loft Lace Inset Tank, Banana Republic Suit Blazer, UO Striped Cardigan
Bottom: Armani Exchange Jeggings
Shoes: First Picture – Banana Republic Studded Wedges, Other Pictures – Seychelles Stacked Heel Tall Boots
Handbag: First Picture – Coach Leather Crossbody, Other Pictures – BCBGMAXAZRIA Lambskin Studded Hobo Crossbody

With the first picture, I wanted to show that by changing your accessories, the whole outfit can change. The first picture with the smaller crossbody bag and wedges, is my conservative look. I need to be at a PTO meeting, picking up my kids, doing something that requires speed then the wedges are my go to shoes for that day. I want to wear something comfortable, that won’t hurt my feet or turn my ankle. The smaller crossbody makes me carry my essentials so I don’t have to dig around for this or that. I like this handbag for that reason because sometimes if I let go of my kid’s hand just for a second, she would go running off in a different direction. I like to think this particular outfit explains the “mom sensibility.”

The other pictures depict taller boots and a bigger handbag. I love how this outfit gives me a boost of confidence. The boots and the handbag with STUDS (my favorite detail at the moment) just has this different vibe. I usually wear this outfit for ladies night, or to a luncheon. I have gone to work like this too. I have worn this outfit too many times. It’s my go to outfit.

What is your go to outfit for a normal day?

Ann Taylor Loft Fur Collared Caridgan Outfit

by dietingfashions on November 10, 2011

Caridgan: Ann Taylor Loft Removable Faux Fur Collar Cardigan – $59.95 online (in stores $39.99 + 40% OFF!!!) sz: MP
Sweater Dress: Ann Taylor Loft Sweater Dress (Winter 2010) sz: MP
Tights: Black Opaque tights from Hue
Belt: Ann Taylor Loft Metallic Skinny Belt sz: M
Shoes: Banana Republic Cheetah Ballet Flats (outlet)

This was a very cozy and warm outfit. It was a very cold day in Texas the day I took this picture. Cold for Texas at 50 degrees. I wore ballets flats because I had to take the kids to school. With 2 small kids, I rather be safe than sorry if I need to race after one or both of them. At first look on Loft.com, I didn’t really want a Fur Collar Cardigan. I wanted a Fur Vest. It has been an on going search to find the right Fur Vest that would look right on me. Then I happened to stop by the Ann Taylor Loft store in Sugar Land, TX. It’s about 5 miles farther than my usual Loft store. Very quaint boutique, with an abundance of sale items, I quickly scanned for something different. It was the fur that caught my eye. Not as bushy as I thought it would be. I love the fit of it. It has just the right amount of fur detail. And I could remove it when the weather gets warmer.

Anything you recently seen that jumped out and begged to be bought?
