Frugal Friday: Style lately

Happy Friday, everyone! I’m on coffee numero dos, which means productivity will amp up soon… I hope.

As you know, I started my new job this week in Pittsburgh! I quickly discovered that the dress is similar to that of my old job – relatively casual for day-to-day, when we don’t have events or meetings. So here’s what I’ve been wearing this week, and the outfits that inspired them.

True to form for spring, the weather has been all over the place, which is why I wore a sweater (below) yesterday and a maxi today.

 

I found the blue and white maxi a while back at TJ Maxx, and haven’t been able to wear it yet. I couldn’t quite decide how to style it for a ‘casual’ office situation – there’s a line between professionally casual and beach casual which is why I opted for sandals but not sleeveless.

Maxi: TJ Maxx, Blazer: Gabes, Sandals: Steve Madden (old), Bracelets: Francesca's

I loved when I see a look I really love and realize I already have similar pieces in my closet to recreate it (which is what happened with both the following outfits):

 

Blazer: Gabes, Sweater: Gap, Pants: Khol's, Pumps: Jessica Simpson via 6pm.com, Watch: Francesca's, Necklace: F21

The final look is what I wore on my last day of work at my last job:

Blazer: H&M, Tee: Cynthia Rowley via TJ Maxx, Jeans: American Eagle, Shooties: BCBG via Marshall's

I love the challenge of recreating looks I love on Pinterest or other blogs for a fraction of the price!

Happy Friday everyone! xoxo
