International Women’s Day Outfit

Yesterday I had the pleasure of joining the Girl Scouts of Utah as they celebrated International Women’s day with an amazing dinner program at The Complex.  I love supporting the Girls Scouts since they provide much needed mentoring and education of girls.  This is always a fun event and I seem to run into other great women active in the Salt Lake community.

I haven’t done an outfit post in a while, so I took some photos of my outfit from yesterday.  This was a very Zara heavy outfit.  The blazer, faux leather peplum top and shoes were all found from Zara online.

This outfit works because the tweed blazer adds some polish to the slouchy boyfriend jeans.  The faux leather top works well under the blazer mostly because the break on the peplum is in line with the break in the blazer, so both flare out at the same point.  This can be tricky when layering a peplum top underneath something else.

Then there are the shoes.  I’m loving simple pointy toed shoes this spring.  These reminded me of the Alexander Wang pair that I picked up for my birthday, but about a 10th of the price.  I was most amazed at the fact that Zara had them in a size 5, which they almost never do.  The woven metallic toe piece is a great way to add a bit a shine to the outfit without overpowering.

Happy International Women’s Day and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Sale Crazy!

There are so many great sales going on right now, that I had to take a minute and tell you about some.  Most first markdowns of designer items have been made and now is when you see the second markdowns, which mean even more savings!  Here are some items that caught my eye.

First of all I wrote earlier about these Chloe wedges that I found at Nordstrom Rack.  Now they are on The Outnet for a steal and in lots of sizes.Chloe wedges

I’ve had my eye on this sweater from Carven.  I love the classic cable knit sweater with a colorblock twist.  It’s still out of my reach at $329, but I have it on my list at Barneys.Carven Sweater Barney'sAnother trick to shopping these sales are to think ahead.  Even as the snow is falling, I am looking at these great deals on tanks, shorts and even bathing suits.  Plan ahead and never pay full price.  This bikini from Suno is so colorful and bright.  Even if you are not going anywhere warm this holiday, in six months you’ll have a great bikini stashed away for the beach getaway.Suno

I was also thinking the same about these 10 Crosby Derek Lam shorts.  I could easily see these shorts being paired with black strappy sandals and a simple white tank.  The fun blue print can be dressed up or worn casually.Lam shorts

There are great winter items on sale too, but if you’ve had your fill of sweaters and boots, you can find some great off season deals for the warmer months.  Happy shopping!
