Weekly Round Up: All The Prints

It has been interesting seeing all my outfits together in one place. I had never done that previously.  I never plan what I am going to wear, hence “Styled By the Spirit.” I usually just go with what I feel. I wish I was better about planning my outfits for the week, but it just doesn’t happen. I am very active in the style challenges on Instagram so sometimes I have an idea of a color or print or item of clothing that I will build the outfit around. Other times, I just go with something and usually end up hitting a few challenges without even trying. Ha!

Now let’s get into it. Based on the sweaters everyday, you can tell that Winter returned. It got back down into the 30’s and I was not happy, but at least it gave me one more chance to wear my cute coats (not pictured). But it looks like sweaters and prints were the theme for this week.

Black, White, and Pink. Even though I am an avid lover of color, this combo is my all time favorite. A classic black and white look with a pop of pink is everything. Add stripes to the mix and you get perfection.

Sweater: Old Navy (option)| Skirt: Old Navy (exact) | Shoes: BCBGeneration (exact, similar) | Necklace: Lia Sophia (similar) | Bracelets: Boho Betty (exact)

Spring Plaid and Pearls. I love pairing pearls with a plaid button down. It completes the look. And these pink snake print pumps are my all time favorite pumps. They’re really old and unfortunately I couldn’t find anything even remotely similar. 🙁

Sweater: Rue 21 (similar) | Shirt: J. Crew (option) | Pants: The Limited (option) | Shoes: Nine West | Necklace: Express (similar) | Watch: JORD (exact)

Houndstooth Island Paradise. This pretty aqua color is one of this year’s fashion colors for Spring. Contrasted it with this coral floral necklace.

Sweater: Merona (option, option)| Pants: The Limited (option) | Shoes: Rampage | Necklace: J. Crew (exact)

Coral and Green for Casual Friday. I love these colors together. And it’s obvious that I can’t go a week without leopard.

Sweater: Old Navy  (option, option)| Jeans: Old Navy (exact) | Shoes: Nine West (exact, exact, option)| Bracelets: Boho Betty (exact) | Monogram Necklace: Frou Frou & Frill (exact) | Tassel Necklace: Macy’s (option, option)

Hope you enjoyed this week’s round up! BTW, either my camera is awesome or it’s junk because if my sweaters looked even remotely close to this raggedy, they would be in the trash.

Have a fabulous weekend, yall!


Weekly Round Up: All The Colors

I have received feedback from you guys here at P&G and on Instagram regarding the content for my blog and the majority of you would like to see more content around work wear ideas. With this in mind, I have decided to do a weekly roundup of my work outfits. I will provide the details of each piece and if something I’m wearing is old and no longer available, I will provide options that will help you to re-create the look. BTW, my favorite place to find things that have sold out or are no longer available in stores is Poshmark. Poshmark is my jam! If you haven’t joined, use code HZTPM and receive $5 off your first purchase.

If you are new to P&G, you will learn two things about me:

1.) I’m cheap. You can call it frugal or thrifty or any of the other lil fancy words for it if you want, but that’s the bottom line. I never pay full price for anything over $30 unless it’s shoes. In that case, it’s nothing over $31. LOL. I kid. But yeah, I’m a bargain shopper to the core.

2.) I buy a lot of staple and classic pieces because I like to mix and match and I like to be able to wear my clothes for years.

So now that you know that I’m an El Cheapo who likes classic pieces, let’s get into this week’s round up.

Houndstooth for Casual Friday. I LOVE this houndstooth print sweater. The colors bring so many possibilities. I chose dark skinny jeans and burgundy lace up booties to keep the rest of the outfit simple. Now these booties, I paid full-price for. Only because I knew they would sell out before they went on sale.

Sweater: Target (option, option) | Jeans: Levi’s (option) | Booties: BCBG (pretty close option, option) | Necklace: Bauble Bar (exact)

Olive and Lilac. This olive shirt is an oldie from NY and Company. I remember finding it on clearance for like $8. It’s a little big on me, but I couldn’t beat the price for such a pretty blouse so I make it work. Sometimes I wear it with  I paired it with these lovely lilac pants. SN: 95% of my work pants and skirts are from The Limited which no longer exists so I’ll be linking other options for pants.

Top: New York & Company (pretty close option) | Pants: The Limited (option) | Pumps: Nine West (exact)

Mustard, Blush and Navy. Blush and mustard are just meant to be together. The navy blazer gives it a more professional and polished look. Then I brought it all together with my favorite leopard pumps. They are really old, but I found some options for these exact ones on Poshmark.

Blouse: H&M (option, option) | Pants: The Limited (option) | Blazer: H&M (option) | Pumps: Vince Camuto (exact)

Coral, White and Gray. These pants and blouse are both clearance finds at Old Navy. I found the pants for $9.99 and the blouse for $4.99. The embroidery and the stand-up collar on the blouse is what got me…not the price. Yeah, right. These silver caged pumps are another full-price purchase because they were so unique and I would not find them again. And guess what? Cannot find them.

Blouse: Old Navy (option, option, option) | Pants: Old Navy (option) | Pumps: Via Spiga (option) | Blazer: H&M (option) | Necklace: H&M (exact in another color)

Mustard, Pink, and Navy. My favorite outfit of the week. It’s so bright and colorful. I love it. Everything is way old except for the booties. I scored these babies after Christmas for half off.

Sweater: Rue 21 (option, option) | Skirt: NY& Company (option, option, option) | Booties: Marc Fisher (exact, exact, exact) | Bow Belt: The Limited (exact)

Thank you so much for your feedback! I hope you enjoy this new round up series!
