Double the Pleasure....

Hey Fashionistas !

I hope you are all well. I won't waste any time babbling with small talk, I have some business to take care of.  Today's post will feature TWO casual outfits!  Double the pleasure, double the fun!  That's right, It's a two for one!  I know we all love those, now don't we?

*warning* picture heavy

Fit #1
HOUNDSTOOTH

As you know Houndstooth have been trending with the celebs and in the fashion world. I'm loving that because I love houndstooth and it has always been a staple in my arsenal.  I love it in and "out" of style.  This jacket was purchased about 3 or 4 years ago from Burlington for $12.99!  And that wasn't a sale price.  I was walking through the store and they just got them in as they were still on the rolling rack.  Because of it being houndstooth, I stopped dead in my tracks. My jaw hit the floor when I saw the price.  I was so surprised I had to look at all the other tags because I just knew it was a mistake, lol.  No mistake.  Needless to say, I walked right to the register without a second thought.  It isn't a flimsy jacket either.  It has a lining and some weight to it.  Few years later and several trips to the cleaners, I still rock it like I bought it yesterday.  I have gotten more than my money's worth from it!

Jeans: Gloria Vanderbilt via Burlington

Fit #2
COLOR BLOCKING w/ Sequin

Sequins + Sparkles | Everybody, Everywear

As the Houndstooth, color blocking is nothing new but I still love doing it as if it was just introduced yesterday.  In this outfit, I used two of my favorite colors to color block.  And yes...I have on a blazer...AGAIN!  You've seen this one before here, where I used the same two colors...OK so sue me!  I just love this color combo.  I wore this last Friday to a get together with some friends to celebrate a birthday.

 

Fit #2
Blazer - Thrifted
Sequin top - Thrifted
Jeggings: Ashley Stewart via thrift store

Zebra belt: Target

Thanks for reading.
Stay fly and stay tuned!
