Party time is over.
I know – womp, womp. But while going back to the daily grind is inevitable, going back to the same ho-hum daily outfits is not. You may have spent most of your holiday cash (if you had any to begin with) on presents and party clothes, but that doesn’t mean you have to go back to your regular routine with this week without a fresh new look.
This is where your favorite neighborhood thrift store, Goodwill, comes to the rescue. With a minimum of cash in your pocket, you can still walk away from your local shop with an absolutely fabulous new find guaranteed to help you start the new year off on the right foot. This week’s gem is just that kind of lucky Goodwill grab – these gorgeous tan leather shoes are all-around gorgeous accessories fit for powering any gal-about-town around through busy January days. The sleek styling and comfortable stacked heel make these darling shoes perfect for wearing day or night, with everything from casual wear to beautifully polished party ensembles.
Mix dressy and casual pieces for a perfectly cool ensemble.
We often separate our fancy wardrobe pieces from our more laid-back, weekend-appropriate wear, but there’s no fashion rule that says you have to do so (certainly no rule you should actually follow). Mix high-end and low-end items from your closet with these beautiful steppers for a truly phenomenal outfit that looks insanely classy, but not at all overdone. Here, I’ve thrown on a pair of well-worn, grayish jeans in a snug, slim fit, and a loose, flowing, cream-colored blouse that skims and floats over all the right places. With a pair of cognac-colored, leather mules, this simple (but seriously chic) look comes together with almost no effort at all.
