work it: leather skirt

leather skirt

Hello and happy week!  Leather skirts are trending for fall, so scooping one up that takes you from work to play will prove to be a worthy investment.  I’m an advocate of a “one wardrobe” approach to fashion, meaning your clothing can crossover and function in different areas of your life.  Many of us divide our closet into “workwear” and “weekend clothes” but that is expensive, inefficient and some of us just don’t have that much closet space!  Take a new approach when shopping and think about how you can wear your items in multiple ways.  The slightest adjustment in your styling could change your look from office chic to date night hotness!  And your wallet will thank you too!  Here’s an example on how to do it with one of the seasons hottest pieces.  xx jenny

splurge vs. steal

zara topI’m not a huge proponent of spending tons of money on clothing that doesn’t have a long shelf life.  I’ll splurge on pieces that are timeless and classic but am conservative when it comes to a passing fad.  I’m well aware that although I like fashion that is trend right – there is a high probability that next season I will be over it.  Thank god for stores like zara who redo styles taken straight from the runway without the designer price tags.  I happened upon this floral number there last week which certainly feeds my appetite for (currently trending) floral and at a price point of $79.90 (it’s now $59.99 on sale!) I couldn’t resist scooping it up.  I’ll be pairing this pretty summer top with something like this…
