New: H&M & Peebles

Before you complain to me about my lack of outfit posts, I'd like to apologize. I've been extremely busy & actually have been doing waaaay more shopping than snapping photos. I want to share with you a few of the purchases I've been making lately.

This first photo is of some things I picked up at H&M today. I got this navy dress to wear to work. While I am free to wear what I choose, the policy is to wear lots of neutrals. Since I've grown tired of boring black, I've strayed towards navy as my go-to shade. I've also been wanting some statement jewelry. While I don't quite have the budget for any Kate Spade pieces, I think these will suffice... For now anyway. I got these for a mere $42, which is a steal. I can always count on H&M to keep a little money in my wallet.

This second photo is from a recent trip to Peebles with my mama. She always buys me something when I'm home (can't complain one bit). I've been wanting a pair of white skinny jeans for some time now & couldn't resist settling for this pair (who wants to spend tons on J Brands?!). They fit great & aren't too tight. They are made by A. Byer. Naturally, I need a blouse to pair with these pants. I saw this cute cobalt blue tank, bit it wasn't in my size, so I went to my new staple color- NAVY. The two pair nicely, but I will probably wear a colorful blouse with these pants; well outside of work that is. The lacy blouse is made by a company called Heart Soul ( The rainbow colored dress is Calvin Klein. I got this when I was unaware of the neutral dress code at work. Nonetheless, it's a cute dress. I got it for $80, which is a great price considering I saw it today at Dillard's for $118.

I also bought some summer dresses, Jessica Simpson black wedges & lots of Nike Dri-Fit for the gym, but I'll spare you those pics. Hopefully, the dresses & wedges will appear in my next outfit posts.

What do you think about my recent shopping trips & purchases?! What would you pair with the white pants?!

Another Interview Outfit

Lately it seems all I do is head to job interviews. I am definitely not complaining because I need a new job! Last week, I work this dress with my new wedges. I actually found this Calvin Klein dress at Ross a few months ago. Get this, it was only $20!! Not to mention my Steve Madden wedges, that I picked up at Marshalls, were only $31.99!! I love a food deal.

I had been getting into color, but as you see, black has crept it's way back into rotation. I'll try to work on this.

Would you wear this outfit to a job interview?! Have you gotten any good deals on clothing lately?! Share!!

What to Wear: Job Interview

I know, I know.. I've been missing in action the past few weeks, but a lot has been going on. I plan to make major changes- job wise- and have been busy trying to figure out the next step. In this time, I have been on oodles of job interviews. Last week, I took a photo of what I wore to one & wanted to share with you my favorite items to wear- sheath dress & scarves!

I love taking a plain, nicely cut dress & adding a printed scarf or vice versa. I believe you can never go wrong with a pop of color. Just be sure the dress is of appropriate length & not too tight. Adding a colorful scarf adds personality to the dress, while still being professional. It's always important to be fashion forward, yet professional when going to an interview.

What types of clothing do you like to wear to job interviews?! Would you wear these dresses & scarves?!
