The Bullseye of Ohio, Columbus. My newest Target look came with even more deals than I expected. The sweater, scarf, and booties were all on Target’s discount app, Cartwheel. What I love about Cartwheel is I was able to get markdowns on some of their new merchandise! 15, 20, 25% may not sound like a lot but it sure does add up. Only other thing I love more than finding bargains, is getting to wear those bargains! Strut your stuff and show that style confidence.

Target Merona striped sweater: $13.59 with Cartwheel 20% off sweater deal

Target Mossimo black shorts: $19.99

Target gold polka dot scarf: $12.47 with Cartwheel 15% outerwear deal

Target Sam & Libby booties: $26.25 with Cartwheel 25% shoes

Happy Hour? Dinner Date? Night out with the Girls? Here is an outfit that will have you looking classy and just a bit sassy. Fur has become wildly popular this last year, whether it is a vest, jacket, scarf, or a hat. My black faux fur vest was a find at Burlington, giving me the sassy look that fur usually does, without draining the savings.

J’adore Vintage

I adore getting all dolled up and wish I had more events to go to that I could wear this fabulous coat. My vintage gold opera coat makes me feel glamourous and classy. Since I was young, I loved shopping at vintage clothing stores, it challenged me to get lost in another era and their fashion. Cool thing with vintage clothing is almost all trends from the past resurface as styles in the future, a renovation of style if you will.

Treasures and Trivia vintage opera gold coat: $20- One of my favorite pieces!

Burlington Coat Factory black heels: $9.99

Goodwill sequin purse: $2.99

Stella and Dot chain necklace: $49.99

* Treasures and Trivia is one of  my favorite rummage sales. I volunteered at the annual sale for about 7 years before leaving for college. It is put on by the Pasadena Guild of Children’s Hospital and last all weekend! This year it is on October 24th, so if you are in the Pasadena area, I highly suggest going. A great cause and amazing clothes.

These Boots are Made for Walking

These boots are made for walking and walking and more walking. A pair of good old cowboy boots will last you years. I found these boots about 3 years ago at Treasures and Trivia Rummage Sale*. Rummage sales and vintage stores are the places to go for cowboy boots. You might have to do some searching, but it is totally worth it. They will already be worn in for you, so no blisters, and you’ll get nice leather boots for the price of fake ones. Plus I like a little scruff on my boots, gives them character. These boots have gone through a lot, I wear them in the sun, rain, and even the snow. Ya’ll should get a pair!

Treasures and Trivia Vintage Cowboy boots: $22

Burlington Coat Factory Calvin Klein Raincoat: $49.99 bought about 7 years ago

Nordstrom Rack Hudson Jeans: $99.99

Just a Stroll in the Park

Today, I took on Burlington Coat Factory in Dublin to find a fall oversized coat, I left with two :). I love going to Burlington because I always find amazing deals. But great deals take some searching, especially at Burlington, so don’t be discourage that you are still rummaging through the racks 30 minutes into your trip. Since this kind of store has a variety of brands, the fit of size small is not always going to be the same, so don’t be afraid to try on things that aren’t your size or aren’t a familiar brand. I left there today with 2 fabulous coats Kenneth Cole and Jones New York, both under $80.

Outfit breakdown below:

Burlington Coat Factory Kenneth Cole cobalt coat: $59.99

Burlington Coat Factory Jones New York black winter coat: $79.99

Burlington Coat Factory blue statement necklace: $9.99

Old Navy black cotton shirt: $9.99

Pac Sun Kendall and Kylie faux leather jeans: $10 end of season sale last year. (one of my favorite pairs)

Famous Footwear Nike black Orive: $65.00

T.J.Maxx BCBG Generation nude heels: $59.95
