{OTH} On the Hunt: Overalls

Over the past couple of months, I’ve been seeing these denim onesie wonders all over the place! After seeing them wonderfully styled on multiple blogs, I’ve been on the hunt to find myself a good pair. Do I want to spend a lot of money on overalls? No. I’ve mainly been looking at thrift stores and consignment stores for a good worn in pair, but have had no luck thus far. Maybe I’ll have to give in and buy it new…

Here are the ones that I have my eye on. And because you know I’m not much of a big spender, these are all under $80 (except for #4 — I couldn’t resist the scallop trim!) !

1. Abercrombie & Fitch sale! $69
2. Top Shop $76
3. BlankNYC sale! $51.30
4. ASOS sale! $123.85
5. Tilly’s sale! $21.97
6. American Eagle sale! $24.99 (with the 50% off on ALL SALE and FREE shipping!)

So, I saw that #6 was only on sale and my shopaholic syndrome surfaced and I impulsively made the purchase. Hey, free shipping, under $30, easily returnable….might as well right?

I’ll let you know how it turns out.

Now for some overall inspiration…

eShakti Review and GIVEAWAY!

Happy first day of the week! Yes, I think I’m a little too cheerful for a Monday, but it’s the last week of summer school! I’m looking forward to my week off doing nothing but planning for this next school year. I know, not much of a summer break. But honestly, I’m excited for my second year teaching at the high school level.

This year is going to be full of fun and excitement! I am…
1. Finishing up BTSA this year
2. The freshmen class advisor
3. Club advisor for 2 clubs

**If you are a fellow teacher, any advice for the newbie? 🙂

OK, enough about me and let’s take a look at this outfit.

I am currently obsessed with the brand eShakti right now. I mean, what store let’s you customize your purchase to your liking? Depending on the design, you can decide on a variety of sleeve type, the length, and the neckline.

How awesome is that? With this particular top I decided to go for the cap sleeve (work appropriate but still flattering to the arms) and kept the length right at my hips (balances my proportions). I’m sad to say that this top is not available anymore on their site, but they have a multitude of other great designs that I am positive you are going to love! Check out their New Arrivals and keep scrolling for a Giveaway!

Let’s Go Back to White and Black

 Summer is all about the colors and the prints, but my eyes were starting to hurt a little bit from the overload and therefore today’s outfit is all about keeping it simple with black and white. Can’t go wrong, right?

Fun Florals

And teaching summer school has begun! I keep forgetting my reasoning for signing up to teach summer school. Maybe it was the fear of boredom, habit of busyness, or just the lost of my sanity, but I did. At least I have an excuse to dress up! 🙂 Haha, but honestly, it’s not so bad thus far. I’ve got great kids who are so eager to learn and that’s all a teacher could ask for.

So about this outfit…probably my new favorite summer work outfit. I decided to keep it casual with jeans but dressed it up with this great floral blazer that I found at DenM during my vacation in Redlands. (Scroll down for similar options!)

Early or Late // I Couldn’t Wait + GIVEAWAY

Man, I’m struggling here. The sun is shining, the beach is calling my name and it doesn’t help that I have some new summer clothes that I want to wear!

I spent this past long weekend visiting my grandparents in LA and came back Monday with just enough time to squeeze in a Memorial Day BBQ before the weekend was up! I know I’m a little late when it comes to posting a Memorial Weekend outfit, but I’m just going to say that this is my exceptionally early July 4th outfit. Hey, if it works, why not? 🙂

I don’t know about you, but I’ve struggled to find the perfect white sleeveless blouse for awhile.

Thank you Boden for coming up with the perfect blouse to start off my summer wardrobe right! If you haven’t checked out Boden yet, now is the time!  They have a great collection of apparel that will keep you cool and stylish this summer! {Right now they are having 30% all dresses!}

The Beauty of Gettin’ Stitch Fixed

I LOVE shopping as much as the next girl, but sometimes you just can’t deal with the indecisiveness, crowded malls, long lines, and fluorescent lights. Sometimes, shopping isn’t as pretty and easy as it seems until…

STITCH FIX.

DSC_1960

DSC_1944

I was just introduced to Stitch Fix — a company who provides you with a personal stylist. This stylist uses the resources and the information that you give them (such as a Pinterest board, FB, IG, etc.) and picks out 5 items for you to choose from. It’s like my own personal shopping fairy came by for a visit! You get to keep the items you like, and then mail the rest back in a prepaid envelope!

Okay, you’re probably saying to yourself..
1) Who says I need help shopping?
2) They don’t know who I am. How are they supposed to dress me?
3) Total waste of money.

Honestly, I said those same things. But I thought I’d give it a try because my last experience at the mall was kind of a drag — no parking, not in my size, long lines, and crowded spaces.

1) You probably don’t need help! But let me tell you, if you’re sometimes lazy and don’t want to step out of the house, but want something new…STITCH FIX is your FIX.
2) They do their research! The more information you give them (a.k.a preferences, social media sites, etc.), the better your stylist can assist you. They ask A LOT of questions to make sure that they serve you well!
3) It costs $20 to sign up for one style fix, but what’s neat is that you can use that $20 towards your purchase! Um, winner. And if you decide to buy all 5 items, you get 25% off your entire purchase!

I had to wait about a month for my box due to the Stitch Fix high demand, but it was worth the wait. It was so fun opening the box and being surprised about the lovely items inside. After much deliberation, I decided to only keep my favorite two items (scroll down to see!) for the sake of my bank account. 🙂

(My stylist was Lydia. I HIGHLY recommend her!)

What I love about this blouse is its design and flattering shape. It hides the tummy but slightly tapers in so it isn’t boxy. The shirt is versatile — casual, dressy, you name it.

As for the jacket…I’ve been looking for a thin neutral jacket for quite some time. Somehow my style fairy totally got the hint from my bio that I needed one. Ha. She chose a great pick for me with this classy but still a little edgy moto jacket.

I’m in STITCH FIX bliss at the moment. 🙂

White House

Okay, so this post has nothing to do with Washington D.C. or the White House, but here was my thought process:

White Outfit –> Olivia Pope –> White House

If you haven’t already seen the hit TV series Scandal, sign up for Netflix and get going! It’s a show full of politics, conspiracies, drama, and of course scandals. The main character, Olivia Pope, is a political cleaner-upper who commands the room in all of her classy white ensembles. I don’t know if it’s the power of wearing a monochrome white outfit, but I’m totally feeling like a boss.

DSC_1642
DSC_1704

Roe Boulevard was kind of enough to let me try out a couple of their pieces which I absolutely love! The white top fits really well and the fabric is elegant and classy enough to bring the Olivia Pope out of you. Too bad they just sold out of this gorgeous top as well as the necklace I’m wearing. 😦

But don’t be wary, they have other gorgeous pieces that will add spice to your wardrobe. And some other good news, Roe Boulevard is offering my readers 40% off your purchase using the code LUCKY40. Make sure you take advantage of this!
{Note: I am not profiting from your purchase. I just want to share the love :)}
