OOTD: A Pop of Pink

Hey everyone! I am very excited to share today’s blog post with you all because it relates to fashion! Over the years, I’ve learned how to style clothing in my own way. I absolutely love planning outfits for any and all occasions, and it truly has become a passion of mine. Today, I am sharing an outfit that I recently put together!

I really didn’t have anywhere to go on this day, however this has been the case for almost a year now! I figured that I shouldn’t wait for any kind of special occasion, or let another gorgeous outfit go to waste! I haven’t been doing a ton of shopping for myself lately because I’ve been so focused on saving my money, however a few new items were added to my wardrobe thanks to loved ones at Christmas time! I thought it would be the perfect time to do an outfit of the day!

For my shirt, I chose a simple lettuce trim long sleeved top. It is black and ribbed with a mock neckline as well. I wouldn’t necessarily say it is cropped, but it still works perfectly with high-waisted bottoms. It can be dressed up or down, and styled in so many different ways. I’ve had this top for quite some time now, so I do not believe that it would be available anymore, and I apologize for that, however I am linking very similar ones that I found here and here!

Next, my newest pair of jeans! For a long time, I had such a love for skinny jeans. I had them in different colors and washes, and I wore them all the time. Well, last year I bought my first pair of straight leg jeans, and it’s safe to say that there is no going back! I am so in love with high-waisted straight leg jeans, and I now own a few different pairs! Although I haven’t been wearing jeans very often lately, I had to style these! I purchased these from Old Navy a couple months ago. I had never gotten jeans from Old Navy before, but I decided to try these out. These are the Sky-Hi Straight Leg Jeans (extra high rise + secret-slim pockets). I typically prefer a lighter wash, but I decided to go for something a little darker this time. These are perfect to wear for any casual occasion. What I love about high-waisted straight leg jeans is that they are so much more comfortable than skinny jeans, and they are flattering on everyone! These specific jeans are very easy to wear, and again: very comfortable (and even a tiny bit baggy on me in the front, which I’m not used to)! I couldn’t find this exact pair, so I will link similar ones here and here!

Since it is winter, layering up is important! It doesn’t get super cold where I live, and luckily on this day we had decent weather, so I threw on my favorite trench coat! I bought this from a store called “Pimkie” when I was in France last year! I knew I couldn’t leave without buying one, and this just so happened to be the perfect price and exactly my style! It is a lighter material, so it won’t necessarily keep you warm, but it is so stylish! Trench coats are such a classic piece, and you can really find them anywhere!

And now, for my newest obsession… THESE SHOES! If you haven’t heard of Just Fab, you’re missing out! I now own two pairs of shoes from this brand, and they are very trendy and so stunning! This is the “Kit Color Block Ankle Bootie” in the color “Black Multi” (it also comes in “Tan Multi”). These are definitely my new favorite pair of shoes! I love the colors on this shoe because they are neutral and they go so well together! It is also a pointed toe bootie, which I think looks very classy. I love wearing heels from time to time, however I am not a fan of the stiletto style, and I am terrified of falling! I love a chunky heel, and these aren’t too tall either, so they are perfect for me! I bought these in a size 8 ½. You can buy these shoes here! Also, I believe that you can get your first pair of shoes for $10 when you become a VIP member!

My other new obsession? My beautiful Kate Spade bag! I got this as a gift for Christmas, however I did pick it out, and I knew I would be receiving it. I was so eager to open this, and I am head over heels for it! I actually found this bag while browsing online one day, and when I saw the price and that it came from the actual brand, I jumped for joy! It was part of the “Surprise Sale”! I know that this is more of an affordable designer brand, but still, this was a big moment for me because I had never owned a designer bag before! It’s perfect because it is my favorite color, and it is just the right size to fit all of my essentials inside! This is the “Cameron Small Flap Crossbody Bag” in the color “Bright Peony”. The price actually did go up a bit from what we paid for it, but it is still very affordable, and you can purchase it here!

For my jewelry, I kept it pretty simple. Because the neckline of my top is a bit high, I chose to forego a necklace. Instead, I went with some adorable stud earrings and a dainty bar bracelet. The earrings are by Lauren Conrad and they are the cutest things I’ve ever seen! I love elephants, so my mom got me these for Christmas! I normally prefer to wear dangly earrings, but I couldn’t refuse! My bracelet is very special to me because it includes a very important date. It is one of my favorite pieces because it because it reminds me of my love! I purchased it and got it customized on Etsy. And lastly, I wore my two gold rings that I wear every single day! Most of the time, I like to keep the metal of my jewelry consistent, so today that meant gold everything! I will include a link to purchase the earrings here!

I hope you all enjoyed this outfit of the day! I am so in love with my new pieces, and I had to share them with you! Thank you so much for reading!

How to Style Holiday Fashion Trends

Hey everyone! I am very excited for today’s blog post because I have always loved styling different outfits and planning what to wear for any and all occasions! Of course, celebrations may look a little different for us this year, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t dress up and get festive (even if you aren’t going anywhere)! Today, I will be discussing some holiday fashion trends, and sharing tips on how to style them!

Velvet

This is admittedly not my favorite trend, however it is a popular choice for the holidays! Something about this material does feel festive, and you really can dress this up or down. There are so many ways to rock this trend. For example, if you wore a simple white chiffon tank top paired with black denim and an emerald velvet blazer, this would make the perfect holiday event outfit that is professional yet trendy! Another idea would be to wear a gray oversized sweater, a royal blue velvet skirt, and some black ankle boots! Whatever your style may be, you can’t really go wrong with velvet for the holidays!

Try the “Women’s Long Sleeve Velvet Ruched Bodycon Dress” from Target ($25) or the “Velvet Puff Sleeve Top” from LOFT ($44.99).

Sequins/glitter

This is a very fun trend for this time of year! Any time I shop around the holidays, I always find sequins everywhere I turn! I personally don’t wear sequins very often, and if I do it is typically for some kind of occasion. New Year’s Eve/Day is the perfect time to style this trend! If sequins are a bit too much for you, wearing something sparkly will look beautiful as well! For example, if you wanted to go all out this year, you can wear an all black sequined jumpsuit with some red heels to complete the look. This screams Christmas/New Years to me! A more toned down choice would be to wear a glitter tie waist wrap top and some slim black pants (or even denim). Although this trend can be intimidating at times, there are a variety of ways to wear it depending on your style and what you like!

Try the “Sequined Dress” from H&M ($34.99) or the “Midnight Sparkle Skater Dress” from Windsor ($18.97)

Sweater dress

If you prioritize comfort over anything else in your wardrobe, sweater dresses are a great option for you! You can style them to be more casual, or you can get really fancy too! A nice oversized, patterned sweater dress would look really cute with a simple pair of flats, or a fitted lace-up sweater dress with a pair of knee high boots would be another gorgeous option. I think sweater dresses can be perfect for girls with any type of style because they really can look feminine, sexy, or casual all depending on how you style it!

Try the “Women’s Long Sleeve Sweater Dress” from Target ($29.99) or the “Cable Knit Sweater Dress” from Forever 21 ($13.99)

Puffy sleeves

I am actually a big fan of the puffy sleeve look! I think it can give any look a vintage vibe, and it’s just a fun trend to wear! This is a trend that has been pretty popular lately, so it would make sense to wear it around the holidays! You can style this trend by wearing a pleated black maxi skirt, pointed toe booties, and a white puffy sleeved top. I have seen quite a few tops where the sleeves are sheer and the rest of the top is not. I think that this can be a very feminine and classy look, and so many people can pull it off!

Try the “Organza Puff Sleeve Top” from Express ($32) or the “Puff-Sleeve Wrap Top” from Forever 21 ($19.99)

Leather, satin, and fur

Who doesn’t love a nice leather jacket?! You really can’t go wrong with classic black and silver detailing. This would look amazing over a red dress, or you can use it to complete an all black look! Satin is always stunning around this time of year, so wearing a satin midi or maxi dress with a slit would be a bold and even sexy choice! A big fur coat can be an elegant and fun layering piece for winter! Although I do not own one, there are so many different styles and a wide price range for these as well!

Try the “Faux Leather Moto Jacket” from Forever 21 ($17.49), the “Ultimate Faux Leather Biker Jacket” from ASOS ($56), the “Satin Slip Midi Dress” from Nasty Gal ($28.80), and the “Women’s Faux Fur Jacket” from Target ($40)

Trench coat

A classic coat for fall and winter! I absolutely love wearing trench coats because they are so stylish and chic. I own a few different ones because there are so many options out there! For example, I own a white cropped trench that is perfect for layering on a cold winter day. I also have a long, light brown trench that is made of a thinner material and is a bit more classic. I love both for different reasons, but there are so many ways to wear these, and they come in a wide range of colors, fabrics, and patterns. These tend to be a bit pricey, but you can definitely find trench coats that are very affordable!

Try the “Women’s trench Coat – A New Day” from Target ($50)

Embellishments

I adore the look of pretty little embellishments on clothing, and what better time to style this trend than during the holidays? For me personally, I love the simple detailing of diamonds and pearls; I just feel like they add a feminine touch to any look! For example, a black long sleeved top with pearl detailing at the neckline would be a very nice touch! Or, diamond buttons on a flowy collared top is beautiful as well. Bows are another gorgeous touch, especially around Christmas, so a pussybow blouse would be a great option too!  If you aren’t a fan of these embellishments, you can incorporate some sparkle in your jewelry! This is the perfect way to complete any outfit. If you’re going for more of a casual look with your clothing, you can dress it up and have a bit of fun with accessories!

Try the “Women’s Holiday Loop and Pearl Cardigan Sweater” from Target ($19.59) or the “Jewel Embellished Top” from Macy’s ($20.99)

Nordic print and plaid

Around the holidays, you have probably seen a ton of sweaters or leggings with a very similar print on them. One of the most common holiday prints is Nordic (or that typical Christmas sweater print) and plaid. This trend can really be worn by anyone, and it instantly makes you feel very festive! A nice Nordic print or plaid sweater and jeans is a great look for laid-back events or gatherings. Another option is to wear a cozy sweater with some Christmas printed leggings! This is a very fun and casual look, and it can even be worn as pajamas!

Try the Reindeer Christmas Sweater from Walmart ($14.99) or the “Classic Plaid Flannel Shirt for Women” from Old Navy ($19.97)

And lastly, I wanted to include the top color trends for winter 2020! If you can incorporate any of these colors into your outfits this season, you will definitely be on trend!

Amber, sandstone, classic blue, brick, blue-green, magenta, olive, sleet, yellow-green, dusky pink, and samba.

You can also combine some of these trends to complete a look! If you wanted to wear a amber satin top with a bow at the neckline, that would be beautiful, or you can style a black leather skirt with a plaid sweater. There are so many options when it comes to holiday fashion trends!

Thank you so much for reading today’s blog post! I hope that you found it helpful, and that it gave you some inspiration for your holiday fashion! Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite holiday trend is!

What I Planned on Wearing in 2020 vs What I Actually Wore

2020 has been anything but normal, that’s for sure! As someone who loves shopping and fashion, I really enjoy planning out my outfits for different days/occasions/seasons etc. Well, in March, any plans I had went out the window! Today I wanted to share a fun blog post with the outfits I would have worn this year, but never got the chance to!

Outfit #1:

I really love looking put together, and adding a blazer to an outfit can instantly add a fresh and professional vibe. I really love that this outfit is completely neutral (black and gray), and I really like the windowpane pattern on the blazer! Underneath, I chose to style a simple black tank top and black skinny jeans. For my shoes, I went with a pair of black block heels. I feel that this look is professional yet stylish, and I would honestly wear this most places! This would be a perfect winter/fall outfit!

Outfit #2:

This look is my favorite out of all of them! I find it difficult to describe my personal style because I enjoy wearing so many different things, but for the most part, I love anything feminine and pretty. I love the bodysuit I chose for this outfit because it is both sexy and beautiful. The earthy florals against the white is stunning, and the back is all lace! I thought it would be nice to add a black wrap coat on top for cooler spring days! I love the material of this because it is super light, and it can be worn during any season! If you follow my fashion blogs, then you would recognize this piece (I wear it so often)! I then decided that I couldn’t go wrong with my favorite pair of jeans! These light blue ripped jeans are from PacSun! They are high-waisted and so comfortable! If you don’t own a pair of PacSun jeans, I highly recommend them! I went with a pair of short, nude block heels to complete the look!

Outfit #3:

This outfit would be perfect for those hot summer days! It is a very simple look, however anyone can rock it! This black bodysuit is something I reach for so often because it truly does go with everything, and I like the look of a tighter top tucked into loose bottoms. The paperbag shorts are adorable, and the pastel multicolored stripes are subtle, yet the colors are perfect for summer! For my shoes, I decided on the same nude block heels from the previous outfit. They are very comfortable and easy to walk in, however sneakers, sandals, or flip flops would be fine with this outfit too (this may depend on the style and color of shoes).

Outfit #4:

The last outfit is a bit more edgy and fun! I bought this gorgeous green dress while walking through the Latin Quarter in Paris earlier this year! I realized that there are so many ways to wear this dress. You can make it more feminine or you can go a bit bold. I decided on the latter for this look. I wanted to style this dress for fall, so I added a black leather jacket with gold detailing. A leather jacket instantly makes any outfit 10x cooler, and I really love this one! I thought that my black pointed toe ankle boots would be perfect, and that a pair of cat-eye sunglasses would complete the look beautifully!

And here is what I ended up wearing most days:

Since most of my year was spent at home, I ended up wearing very casual and comfortable clothes. This look is simple but cute, and it is an outfit that I wore very frequently! I bought this cropped tank top in four different colors (pink, baby blue, gray, and black), and I love them because they are so easy to throw on. I recently bought these capri pants on sale from Old Navy and I am actually obsessed with them! I love the pattern and the light fabric is perfect for warmer days. I lounge around in them often, but I would still go out with them on as well.

Although these outfits never really got to see the light of day, I guess there’s always next year! If that doesn’t work out, well, we’ll always have Instagram!

Thank you so much for reading! Leave me a comment and let me know which outfit is your favorite! Also, check out my Instagram @sacchere14 to see a new reel I created using these outfits!

Business Casual Outfit Ideas + Tips

Hey everyone! I am very excited to share this blog post with you all! I absolutely love looking polished and put-together, so I came up with five different business casual outfits. Whether you work in an office or you are beginning your first internship, these outfit ideas should spark some inspiration.

Depending on where you work, there may be specific rules when it comes to professional attire. You can very easily add or change certain pieces in each of these outfits if they do not follow your specific guidelines.

I know that I did not include a dress or skirt in this post, and this is mainly because I don’t feel that I own a dress or skirt that is necessarily “professional.” If I owned a simple black, navy, or nude dress/skirt that was about knee length, I definitely would have included it! If you prefer skirts and dresses (as I often do), you can definitely choose to wear them rather than pants!

You will notice that the color pattern I tend to stick with when it comes to business casual is black, pink, gray, nude, and navy. Although it is often best to stick to neutrals, I do like to include a few colors. The ones I chose are professional, and in my opinion, they make the outfits a bit more fun. Check out my Instagram: @sacchere14 to see a fun transition video I created while wearing these looks!

Here are the five outfits I put together…

Outfit #1:

For this look, I went with a navy and white top. These two colors always look so beautiful together. What I love about this top is that it can be worn casually, or you can dress it up. It is perfect for so many different occasions. I added a simple black blazer because you would most likely have to cover up a bit more. I love a nice blazer, and I like to wear them often, even for the most casual activities. I went with a nice pair of gray, patterned ankle pants. The pattern is not over the top or too bold, but it adds a bit of flair to the look. I decided that my nude block heels looked best with this outfit.

Outfit #2:

For this outfit, I wanted it to be a bit more girly yet still professional. I chose this light pink collared top. Collared tops are perfect for the workplace, and this one is a bit more fun with the ruffled sleeves and the zipper detailing in the front. If needed, I would recommend a black of gray blazer as well. I chose a pair of slim black ankle pants to go with the top. For my shoes, I decided on my black block heels (a pair of neutral flats would look great too).

Outfit #3:

This look is for those of you who prefer something comfortable yet still pretty. I chose a black pussybow top. I love the sleeves on this top because they flare out at the end, and I have such a love for big sleeves! It is great because it looks professional and stylish at the same time. If you aren’t a fan of blazers, this kind of top is perfect for you because it keeps you covered without the extra layer. For my bottoms, I went with the same gray patterned ankle pants from the first outfit. Lastly, to complete the outfit, I chose my black block heels (once again, neutral flats would be a great option as well).

Outfit #4:

This look is the most bold out of the five, however I feel that it still gives off a professional vibe. I wanted to include it in case the rules at your workplace are a tiny bit more casual. For my top, I have a long sleeved pink turtle neck. I feel that turtle necks, mock necks, and high necklines in general look very professional and they make any outfit more polished. I then added a patterned blazer. This may be a bit bold, but you can always use a neutral colored blazer (such as black or gray) instead. For my bottoms, I chose a simple pair of black ankle pants. I love the look of a sleek pair of pants, and these are pretty comfortable as well. Lastly, for my shoes, I chose the same pair of black block heels (again, if heels aren’t your thing, you can wear a neutral colored pair of mules or loafers). If you are going to add color to your business casual outfits, try to stick to one item of clothing and keep the rest of the outfit neutral.

Outfit #5:

I think that this last outfit is my favorite of the five! I love that it is simple yet classy and put together at the same time. For this look, I chose a gray, mock neck sweater. The material of this sweater is light, so it wouldn’t be too hot, but it would still keep you warm if your workplace is a little cold. I paired this top with my favorite ankle pants. I adore the windowpane pattern of these pants, and the navy and white look beautiful paired with the gray top. If the pattern is too bold for you, a nice pair of black pants, or a skirt would look just as nice! I decided to go with my nude block heels to complete the look!

Tips for women:

Stick with neutral colors for the most part

Wear heels that aren’t too tall or if heels aren’t your thing, a nice pair of mules, loafers, or ballet flats would be perfect

Wear a blazer or a nice cardigan over a tank top/sleeveless top

Ankle pants/capris are a stylish yet professional choice

Skirts and dresses should be 4 inches above the knee at most (knee length is perfect)

Go for a nice blouse

Nothing too tight or short

Keep the jewelry minimal and simple

Avoid bright colors

Avoid sneakers and flip flops

Tips for men:

Neutral colors are best

Sweaters, button ups, or collared shirts are the best options

Dress slacks or semi-formal pants

Tie-up shoes and loafers

Avoid t-shirts and sweatshirts

Try to stay away from very bold prints and patterns

Avoid  boots and flip flops

There are definitely ways to look fashionable while wearing business casual attire. It isn’t too complicated to know whether or not something is inappropriate for the workplace, however I felt that sharing a few outfits and tips would be helpful, especially for those of you who are just starting out in the workplace.

I hope you enjoyed today’s blog post! Thank you so much for reading!

My Go-To Fall + Winter Shoes

Hey everyone! I hope you are having a beautiful day wherever you may be! I am very excited that fall has arrived because I find everything about this time of year so beautiful; the vibrant colors, the cool and crisp weather, and of course, the fashion! Today, I wanted to share some of my go-to fall and winter shoes! These are just a few pairs that I wear most frequently at this time of year!

  • Ankle Boots

I think that ankle boots are my absolute favorite shoes to wear, mostly during the fall! There are a variety of patterns and designs to choose from, and they can dress up any look! I own quite a few pairs, and while they all look pretty different, the one thing they all have in common is that they are heels. I am not a big fan of stiletto type heels, and I often prefer to wear chunky and short heels. I find that they are not only easier to walk in, but they are more comfortable as well. They are just as stylish, and they can be worn for many occasions!

  • Snakeskin patterned boots

Snakeskin has been trending for a little while now, and I finally got my hands on a pair of snakeskin ankle booties! These are so on trend right now, and I purchased mine from Just Fab! They were very affordable, and they are my newest obsession! I plan to wear them all season long! While they are a bit bold, and not typically something I would have reached for, I have completely fallen in love with them! If you haven’t tried out the snakeskin trend, I recommend it! Who knows, maybe you’ll surprise yourself like I did!

  • Knee-high boots

I would say that I wear these more in the winter, however I love that they can pretty much be worn with anything! I style knee-high boots with jeans, skirts, dresses, and shorts! Where I live, it does not get very cold in the fall, and in the winter we will sometimes have pretty warm days! One Christmas Eve, I was wearing shorts and a tank top with the AC on! Knee-high boots look great with almost every fall/winter outfit, and I prefer to wear simple black suede ones. As I mentioned, I like a little bit of a lift, so these have a chunky heel as well.

  • Combat boots

I love the edgy look of combat boots in the fall and winter! I own a pair of brown ones at the moment, however I am hoping to find a nice pair of black ones with silver detailing (feel free to leave recommendations below)! They can definitely look stylish and cute with dresses, shorts, or skirts, however, I enjoy wearing them with jeans the most! These shoes can spice up any look, and even make the most feminine outfit look edgy.

  • Pointed-toe boots

I love a professional look from time to time, and pointed-toe shoes are a simple way to make any outfit a bit more classy. I own a pair of black suede pointed-toe ankle booties, and I find myself reaching for them often. These shoes are very versatile as well! I know that some people are not a fan of this style, however, I like them because they are very fashionable and they can be worn for most occasions these days. They really are shoes that can go from day to night; from the office to dinner with the girls.

  • Flat boots (riding boots)

I was not exactly sure how to describe these shoes, however I wanted to include them because they are perfect for those of you who aren’t a fan of heels and prefer a simple yet cute fall/winter shoe! I have a pair of black flat riding boots that are perfect for this time of year. I do not wear them very often anymore, but they are a great option for those casual fall or winter days. If you do not enjoy wearing heels, these shoes are great, and they can be worn for special occasions or casual days running errands or going shopping.

  • Rain boots

Where I live, fall and winter are not incredibly rainy seasons, however I wanted to include these because I bought a pair of adorable chelsea rain boots earlier this year, and I think they are just adorable! I wore these when I went to France in March. It was a pretty rainy week while I was there, so these shoes were perfect because they kept me dry, and they are very stylish as well. I never thought rain boots could be stylish, but I have found that chelsea rain boots can be worn in rain or shine and with most outfits!

It rarely snows where I live, but if you live in a very snowy area, then of course, I recommend owning a nice pair of snow boots that will keep you warm and dry! There are definitely days when I prefer to simply wear sneakers over any of these shoes, however I would say these are my top favorite styles and pairs!

I hope that you enjoyed today’s blog post! Let me know what your go-to fall/winter shoes are! Until next time! (Check out my Instagram: @sacchere14) for a fun little video I made wearing some of the shoes!)

Summer to Fall Transition Outfits + Tips

Hey everyone! If you have been following and keeping up with my blog from the beginning, you may remember that I created a similar blog post around this time last year! I absolutely love the fall season, and I am excited to start breaking out my sweaters and booties!

For today’s blog post, I wanted to share a few outfits that can be taken from summer to fall. It’s not always easy to transition your wardrobe from season to season, but especially around this time of year (though it may depend on where you live). Where I live, summer can linger for a little bit longer than most people would like, however, around mid-September, (aka, right now), things finally begin to cool down!

I will be sharing three different looks that I took from summer to fall. The smallest details made these outfits much more suitable for fall, and I loved putting these looks together!

Outfit #1

For this first look, I took a patterned halterneck tank, a pair of denim shorts, and a pair of heeled colorblock sandals. I also decided to add some rose gold sunglasses to complete the look. I made a few small changes to this look, however I wanted to keep the top because it is actually a perfect transition piece for this time of year. It isn’t exactly hot outside, but it’s not too cold either, so I still like to wear sleeveless tops around this time of year. The colors in this top are dark and include both purple and blue, making it more fitting for fall! I then took my favorite pair of straight leg jeans, and tucked in the front of the top. I threw on a warm black cardigan (just in case it’s a cooler day outside). Layering is a great tip for this season, and it adds a cute and casual touch to any outfit. Lastly, I put on a pair of booties! These are simple taupe ankle boots that I adore and love to wear in the cooler months! This outfit can be worn for most occasions, but overall it is the perfect everyday fall look.

Outfit #2

I think this may be my favorite outfit of the three! To start, I took a simple forest green/emerald tank tucked into a pair of black paper bag shorts that tie at the waist. I had a pair of white sandals, and my favorite summer panama hat. I decided to keep the main pieces of this look the same, and change up and add accessories. I love the color combo of emerald and black, and once again, the color of this top is perfect for this time of year! I added a very light black wrap coat that I wear very often (it gives any look a bit more of a classy and professional vibe), and I am wearing my new snakeskin booties. Snakeskin has been trending for a little while now, and I had been wanting a pair of snakeskin boots so badly! I finally found a very affordable pair from Just Fab! I have become a big fan of hats this year, which is strange because I was never a hat person! I am obsessed with this black fedora that I purchased earlier this year! Whether it’s a fedora, a beret, or a cabby hat, it will complete your fall look beautifully.

Outfit #3

For the last outfit, I changed it up quite a bit! I started off with a simple black tie-front tank with a pair of navy patterned shorts. I love wearing white in the summer, so I wore my white Stan Smiths. I also added a cream colored cardigan. To transition this look, I swapped my shorts for a pair of black high waisted jeans, and I took off my cardigan for a beautiful light trench coat. I bought this coat when I was in France earlier this year, and it has become one of my favorite pieces of clothing that I own! It is perfect for fall, and it adds a bit of French flair to the look! Of course, no fall look is complete without boots (at least for me)! I went with black pointed toe booties. Any shoes with pointed toes can make an outfit instantly classy, and I love how comfortable these are! Lastly, to go along with the whole French vibe, I threw on a black beret, also purchased in France (call me a typical tourist)!

Some fall trends for 2020:

  • Preppy clothing
  • Metallics
  • Patchwork
  • Capes
  • Plaids
  • Snakeskin
  • Subtle fringe detailing
  • Lingerie inspired clothing
  • Embellishments
  • Drawstring details
  • Colored leather
  • Cutouts
  • Trending colors: rust, marigold, chartreuse, jewel tones

Thank you so much for reading today’s blog post! Leave me a comment and tell me which look is your favorite! Don’t forget to check out my Instagram, @sacchere14, to see a fun little transition video I made wearing these outfits!

Fabletics Review

Hey everyone! It’s no secret that I enjoy working out, and I love fashion. I love looking put together, even in the gym! Something about new workout gear can bring a lot of motivation, and today, I will be talking about and reviewing the brand Fabletics.

Since starting my fitness journey, I have discovered a few fitness brands that I love. Fabletics is definitely one of them, and today I will explain why. This brand was created in 2013, but I became a member in 2018. Keep in mind that I will simply share my opinion of the brand. The items that I own by this brand are not very new, but I will include a link to the Fabletics website so you can check out the site and the workout gear for yourself!

When you first sign up to become a VIP member, you will take a short quiz that asks questions such as “What’s your favorite way to get fit?” “What colors best match your style?” and “Which best mirrors your body type?” You will also be asked to put in your size preferences. By answering all of these questions, you will get more of a personalized selection!

When I subscribed to Fabletics, there was a 2 for $24 deal on leggings. This is what made me want to try the brand because fitness gear can be pretty expensive sometimes. Plus, I had heard great things about the brand. Subscribing is free, however, you can choose whether or not you want to skip the month or shop and pay $49.95 a month. (Remember, you only have until the 5th of every month to skip.) If you decide you want to shop, the charge becomes a VIP Member Credit you can redeem on purchases of $49.95 or more. You can also cancel your membership at any time.

I absolutely love the personalized and stylish gear that this brand offers, and every month, there are new items to check out! While I love all of the fun patterns and bright colors, I typically like to go for a more subtle look with my workout gear. I do own a few colorful and patterned pieces, but when it comes to my leggings, I like them to be a neutral color and I prefer a high-waisted style as well. I love that Fabletics focuses on the smaller details just as much as the larger ones. Little things like pockets and mesh detailing can make even the simplest leggings so much cuter. I have compared the prices to other fitness brands, and I would say that they fall into the average price range. Some of the items can be a bit pricey for me, but as someone who loves to shop, I have found ways to purchase clothing in more affordable ways. I always look for coupons, deals, and I shop sale items as well.

When it comes to sizing, I have struggled to find what works for me. In most leggings, I would say that I am a size small. With Fabletics, I do not believe this is the case. The three pairs of Fabletics leggings I own are all a size small, and they are just a bit too tight around my thighs. The problem is, they fit perfectly around my waist. I truly do love my legs, and they have gotten a bit bigger and stronger since I began weight training. This means that certain pairs of bottoms, whether they are jeans or leggings, can feel a bit tighter around my thighs. Their leggings do not have much give, so I am going to purchase a pair in a medium to see if this is a better fit for me. Of course, this is better than leggings that are too stretchy, because these often wouldn’t last. I’ve had the same problem with the sports bras. I ordered mediums, when I think smalls would have been just fine. I feel that the quality of Fabletics gear is pretty great, and the leggings seem to be long-lasting. Knowing your body size and taking measurements may be helpful to finding your perfect fit.

The leggings are adorable and trendy, and the ones that I own are squat proof (meaning that they are not see-through when squatting.) I have realized that my favorite pairs are seamless. I think that they are more flattering and comfortable. I am also a fan of full length or 7/8 leggings, and I would often choose these over capris or shorts.

I have styled all of my Fabletics items for you today. These are a few of my favorite looks to workout in. Again, these items are not new, but I wanted to show them anyway.

This first outfit is probably the most comfortable. I love the black seamless leggings and the simple details on the sports bra. The bright orange top is perfect for the warmer months, and I reach for tank tops the most when changing for a workout.

This next outfit is a bit more fun! I just love the floral pattern and the cutouts on this sports bra! Once again, I have a loose fitting tank that I will sometimes tie in a knot to make it more stylish. It has a very subtle pattern on it as well. These leggings are navy blue, and they are cropped. These are a bit too tight on me, but I still like to wear them on upper body days!

These are my most recent Fabletics pieces. I received this as a set for Christmas last year. I love matching sets, and these colors go together beautifully! The sports bra is bright pink with a high neckline and almost a fishnet/mesh detailing. It could even be worn as a crop top. I normally do not like long sleeved tops when I work out, but this one would be perfect for hikes in the colder months. I love the cutout detailing all over this top as well! The leggings are burgundy, and the cutouts match the top perfectly. Once again, these leggings are a bit too tight on me, but I still wear them from time to time.

Overall, I would recommenced trying out Fabletics. Their pieces are trendy and fun, yet subtly stylish at the same time. There really is something for everyone! They not only sell clothing, but shoes and accessories as well. Whether you are into weight training, yoga, or running, I feel that Fabletics is worth a try!

Styling One Bodysuit Four Different Ways

Hey everyone! I am very excited for today’s blog post! Today I am going to be sharing four different looks that I have created using one bodysuit. I know that some people are not the biggest fans of bodysuits, but I feel that every girl should own at least one!

For each outfit, I decided to wear a simple black bodysuit. Since this piece is one solid color, it makes it a bit easier to style, however, I may change things up in the future! A bright red or patterned bodysuit would be trickier to style, but I’m up for the challenge! 😉 The outfits that I am sharing with you today are very different, yet they are all very much my style. They are perfect for the end of summer as well!

Outfit #1

Without a doubt, this look is my favorite of the four! Something about wearing all black can just make you feel powerful and confident! With the simple black bodysuit, I wore a pair of paperbag shorts with a tie to cinch in my waist. I threw on a wrap coat that I wear very frequently as well. It is made of a very light material, so it can still be worn on warmer days. For accessories, I went with my go-to black block heels, and a pair of cat eye sunglasses to complete the look.

Outfit #2

For this look, I wanted to go for something with a bit of a boho edge. This look is perfect for those cool summer days!  To go with the bodysuit, I wore some patterned palazzo pants. These pants are incredibly comfortable and stylish, and I love that they are made of a lighter material. Though the look is stylish, it also feels as if you are walking around in pajamas! As for accessories, I wore my black wide brim fedora, a pair of gold flip flops, and my round 70’s inspired sunglasses!

Outfit #3

This is a look that I would definitely rock during the summertime! I am a big fan of skirts and dresses, so I had to include this outfit! I absolutely love this pleated royal blue mini skirt. It adds a pop of color that I adore as well! The skirt adds such a feminine touch, and this is a look that I like to go for often. For the accessories, I wore the same black heels from the first outfit, and a classic black and white purse.

Outfit #4

This last look is definitely the most casual of them all. It even gives off a bit of a sporty vibe, which I do like to go for sometimes! I paired the bodysuit with my favorite high waisted denim shorts. These are a staple in my wardrobe, and I reach for them all the time! I also added a cream colored cardigan to make the look a bit more fun. Lastly, I decided to wear my Stan Smith sneakers because they would match any outfit, and I love wearing anything white in the summer!

OOTD: 21st Birthday

Hey everyone! Yesterday was my 21st birthday, and of course, I had to buy an outfit for the occasion! Today, I am sharing an ootd (outfit of the day) with you all.

I have spoken about the brand “Priceless” on my blog recently, and a while back, I bought what I felt was the perfect dress to celebrate my 21st. This is the “Clem Blush Mini Dress” in a size medium. I purchased this dress for $58.92. It was a bit pricey for me, but I decided to buy it since it was for my birthday! Everyone who knows me knows that pink is my favorite color, so I truly couldn’t resist. I absolutely adore the flirty look of this dress. The 3D flower detailing and flowy skirt add such a fun touch. The material is 100% polyester, making it a bit warm for the summer time, however it is not unbearable! I felt pretty comfortable during the day!

As for my shoes, I recently bought these beautiful nude block heels. I had been wanting these shoes for about 2 years now, but I never ended up purchasing them until recently! These are the “Michaela Mid Block Heel Sandal Pumps” in the color “Taupe.” I bought these shoes at Target for $25 in a size 9. I love these shoes because they are so classic and can be worn with (literally) any outfit. The shorter heel makes the shoes more comfortable to walk in as well.

For jewelry, I wanted to keep it simple. I felt that silver matched this look better than gold would have. I wore a silver double layer necklace, and diamond earrings. Although I liked silver with this look, I wear my 2 gold rings every single day, so they completed the look.

I had a beautiful 21st birthday surrounded by friends and family. Every year, we make a reservation for one of my favorite restaurants. The food was, as always, delicious! Afterward, we had cake and I opened a few gifts from loved ones.

I find so much beauty in growth of all forms. I look back at who I was even just a few years ago, and I find that I am completely different. I am ever-changing. I am continuously finding new ways to grow and love myself. I am not as fearful of the future as I used to be. I know that I will face challenges, but I also know that some of the best experiences of my life haven’t happened yet. This thought excites me, and it makes me look forward to the future. Of course, I don’t want to rush my life, but instead, take every day and make the absolute most of it. To show kindness to every single soul that I come in contact with. To inspire others to be their best selves. To be as happy as I can be. To enjoy life’s simple pleasures. And to show love. So much love to the world around me. While I may be turning 21, my heart is as it has always been, and I refuse to let anything change that. I am very proud of the woman I am today. Here’s to 21 years of life!
