So let’s just pretend I’ve just said a bunch of cliché things about how I haven’t blogged in forever and I need to be better about it and long time, no see…etc. and get down to it. I’ve been posting so many outfits on Instagram but failing to update them all on my blog. I wanted to give you guys a roundup of some of my favorite Instagram looks and where all the items of the outfit are from. I incorporated a lot of repeat items to show versatility in re-wearing staple items in different ways. It is “June Gloom” here in Los Angeles so I deemed it appropriate to start with some long sleeve/pants looks for gloomier/cooler weather and then transition down to more spring/summer looks. That was a lot of slashes. Anyways…enjoy!

I’m taking full advantage of this dressy sweatpants trend I’ve been seeing around LA. The perfect mix of put-together yet entirely effortless and comfortable is something I can always get behind. The leather stripe down the side of these fitted sweatpants subtly tell you, “yes I may be sweatpants, but I’m not sloppy, I’m chic!”… and I think the many compliments I got on these pants spoke to that point. Pairing them with leather black booties, a fitted black top, statement necklace and gray leather jacket made sure to further prove this to be a polished look and not pajamas (but they sure feel like it!).
There are many ways to wear dressy sweatpants and I plan to get myself another pair! I included my own look as well as some looks from Pinterest that inspired me. I recommend going out and getting your own pair…or better yet, repurpose a pair you already have by pairing them with some heels and owning this cozy winter trend!
I decided to be a rebel and wear white after labor day. It was over 90 degrees out after all. When it comes to your personal style, sticking to rules only limits you from doing whatever feels right! And that’s what keeps fashion evolving, people bending the “rules” and setting new trends.
On this particular sweltering day, it felt right to wear a white baby doll dress to my friends birthday barbecue at a park in North Hollywood. I looked hot but stayed cool! I paired it with brown strappy wedges with gold detailing and a straw heel to keep with the romantic summer look.
My necklace stole the show though. It’s so unique and gives the neutral outfit just the right pop of color. I absolutely love both tortoise and turquoise so when I saw this necklace on Shoot the Moon LA, I had to have it. Although its colorful and detailed, it’s quite versatile.

I absolutely love these harem pants! They are just the right amount of sexy and comfortable. They have zipper detailing on the bottom sides and a simple draw string waist band. The slouchy fit makes for an exceptionally relaxed yet sleek and tailored look for work, a night out, or travel. I think it’s a must-have staple in any fashionistas wardrobe!

This online shop has boutique, unique and high fashion looks for cheap. I have ordered several things from here and I can tell you first hand it’s also quality material! I’m a big fan of the beautiful necklaces which are sure to stir up attention and compliments. I’m about to order this one right now!
I paired these harem pants with a light and flowy Urban Outfitters top. I love tops with a simple front and playful back. This shirt has one of my favorite backs… I must have a thing for zippers. The front is also shorter than the back. With these pants it looks best with a shirt that’s cropped right above the waist line or with a shirt tucked in. The pants are supposed to have a baggy look but would be too much with a long baggy shirt.
I added a gold and black detailed statement necklace, red lips and black lace up bootie heels and headed out downtown. I received many compliments on my outfit and danced the night away in style and comfort. Beauty doesn’t have to be pain ladies!

I was scrolling through Pinterest and this one (far left) caught my eye. I love an A-line skirt over a casual cotton top. Navy and white stripes paired with pink seems to be really in lately.
My first impression was that this whole outfit looks pretty expensive and unattainable. But then I realized that the whole purpose of this blog is to show that high fashion looks can be recreated on a budget. I can’t be thinking… “oh looks too expensive” and keep scrolling. So instead, in the words of Barney Stinson, I said to myself… “challenge accepted!”
I believe a good comfy cotton striped shirt, one good statement necklace and a beige trench coat are staple items for ones wardrobe. They are versatile and can be worn a million different ways a million different days (I just made that up, can I coin that phrase?). So there’s 3 things from the outfit right there that I realized I actually already have. If you don’t have them, you absolutely should and can for CHEAP!
The top I used is a little fancier than what’s needed here, but you can get a top like this (minus the sequins) anywhere… Target, Forever 21, JC Penny…etc. I got this trench coat at Marshall’s for maybe 30 bucks and you would never know it. The necklace I got at Forever 21 for maybe 15 bucks. So there ya go!
A pink A-line skirt however isn’t exactly a necessity for your closet, but I actually had this one (which I’ve yet to wear), from YEARS ago. It is from Target. I never really could decide what it would look good with, which is why scrolling through Pinterest is great inspiration. So voila! I’ve made a very creative outfit with it. I think this outfit would look equally as cute though with a black A-line skirt or really almost any solid bright color.
So there ya go, a very classy expensive looking outfit recreated from honestly some of the oldest, cheapest items in my closet.
