OOTD: Casual Chic In Chico's Cardigan and Ralph Lauren Loafers

This outfit is relaxed in style, but still maintains a bit of casual chic by double layering an off white and a light peach scarf with fringes over a neutral base which includes a favorite Chico's cardigan.
 Adding rich accessories with the caramel toned purse and loafers along with multiple bracelets also helps to create a more put together look with a laid back feel.
Another of my favorite thrift finds was this pair of Ralph Lauren flat loafers I picked up for $4 back in 2012.  I love their creamy caramel color, the little bows, and the fact that they are soooo comfortable.

OOTD For The Office: A Dressy Jacket With Casual Stripes

In today's black and white outfit, which I wore to work, I've dressed up a pair of casual jeans and striped tee with a pretty kimono style jacket.
I am a big fan of wearing a longer layer over a top (or just a longer top) to camouflage the hips a bit.
Love these suede-like pointy toed flats with studs and buckles.

OOTD: A Scarf Choker

 I've discovered that I like the looks of a scarf tied in this fashion...around the neck like a choker.  It's very easy to do.  Just wrap and wrap then tie the remaining two tiny ends together.
This works well with a thinner, smaller type scarf rather than a thick, heavy winter one.

dark denim jeans $3 Gloria Vanderbilt
white tee
waterfall cardigan $7 h.i.p.
gold hammered metal bangle $1.52
olive purse $3
olive loafers $6.84 Aerosoles

OOTD: Dressing Up For Work - The Look For MUCH Less

 Considering that I normally dress semi casual for the office, this is a more dressed up look I wore this past Monday.

 My pants were only $3.20 but look remarkably like these below that sell for $695 by St. John.  I'll take my $3 pants, thank you. :)
 The St. John pants are described as having lavishly flared legs and a gossamer georgette overlay adding a skirt-like dimension to statement stretch-silk pants.

These pants have a stretch waist and even came with this pretty rhinestone circle which is attached to the fabric draped across the front.

 I don't have many ideas for styling these pants and would probably just repeat this whole outfit.
Do you have any suggestions of ways to wear these pants?
black pants $3.20 Dress Barn
white v-neck tee w/lace $5.25 Jones New York
black semi sheer cardigan $2.39 Merona
