Wearing Lately

I feel like I spend a ton of my time sharing to Instagram, and not enough sharing here on my blog. So I have decided to periodically round up my Instagram outfits and share them here!

Cute casual chic Valentine's Day outfit with leggings snd heart cardigan

Stay casual during the day on Valentine’s Day with this heart print cardigan! It’s so soft and cozy, and I will surely wear it beyond Valentine’s Day. Hearts are so cute!

Casual winter outfit with animal print sweater and jeans

This animal print sweater is on sale! It’s a thick material and super cozy for winter. Plus, it has statement shoulders. I bought a medium because I like the oversized look, but I could have gone with a small.

winter outfit idea with leggings

I snagged this cozy sweater dress (total 90s vibes!) off the sale rack at local boutique Blink in West Chester, PA! It’s on sale online also! I love that you can wear it with leggings and sneakers or keep your legs bare and slip on some chic booties for date night!

I bought a medium because that was the only size left in the boutique, but it is a little big! Consider your normal size, if it’s still in stock!

My first purchase from Shein was a success! I am EXTREMELY pleased with the quality, fit, and comfort of this snakeskin print panel sweatsuit! Can you believe it’s only $22?! I followed the size guide and bought a small, which fits perfectly.

I wore this sparkly sheath dress to my husband’s work’s post-holiday party. It was originally $250, but it’s on sale for under $60, which is what I paid! All sizes are fully stocked, and the dress runs very true-to-size. I actually bought a size up because I found it in-store. (It was an online-exclusive purchase that someone returned in-store, and that was the only size the store had!) I felt that I could have done a little better with my normal size, but hey, nothing is perfect, and it still looked good! Get it while you can and keep it on hand for pop-up special occasions!

I 100% believe that lululemon leggings are the best of the best. In particular, I enjoy the Align Pant. They are the softest and most comfortable. Plus you can wear them to the gym, change your top, and be ready for happy hour.

Bring on spring! When I bought this tiered sequin top to wear to my twins’ 6th bday party, I immediately envisioned a pair of high-waisted flare jeans. I hunted them down and am so glad I did! They are a great investment piece!

The top fits true-to-size and is under $30! The designer jeans also fit true-to-size. If you’re looking for a pair of high-waisted flares, definitely check these out. However, I am 5’10”, and I love the long inseam! If you’re shorter than me, you may need wedges or heels.

This scalloped-edge cardigan is so cute for spring and comes in 2 other colors! I chose to wear it as a top, but I’ll definitely layer it and style it many different ways in the future! It’s around $30, and I bought my normal size.

I hope you enjoyed the outfits I’ve been wearing lately! Be sure to follow me on Instagram and on the LIKEtoKNOW.it app so you don’t miss anything!

Which of these looks is your favorite? Have a nice weekend!

    I think my favorite piece here is that scallop-edge cardigan. I’ve been so into the cardigan-as-a-top style lately, and you rocked it with the casual denim and sneakers. So many fun outfits here – and so many awesome deals that you found!

      Thanks Stephanie! When I was a teacher, I wore a ton of outfits with open cardigans. Now, since that’s not really my style anymore, I enjoy wearing unique cardigans buttoned up!

    I definitely think it’s a good idea to post a round-up of your outfits on the blog too because it makes it more accessible for everyone to shop your outfits. I think I need that heart cardigan because it’s so cute. I really love the sheath dress you work to your husband’s work party too – looks STUNNING on you! x
