Black Jumper: Boohoo// Sunglasses: Prada// Crossbody: Rebecca Minkoff ‘Avery’// Shoes: All White Chucks//

Keeping it causal this week, I wanted to spotlight my favorite black dungaree jumper with my white chucks. This jumpsuit is super comfy and can be worn dressed up or casual with a white tee. Boohoo.com continues to be one of my favorite online retailers and the shipping is much faster since they’ve opened a location here in the states. They’re running a 30 percent off sale on their site right now (link above.) I couldn’t find this exact jumpsuit, but I linked you all to a similar one.

These black and gold Prada sunnies are my absolute favorite right now. This cut out frame is super trendy and unique. These Prada’s cost about $200 less than Dior’s trendy cut out frames (retailing $550.) You can find these in-store at a Dillard’s or through Prada. Links to pieces of my outfit are above in pink.

Happy Shopping :)

I got to spend some time downtown in this dressy (but comfy) little number yesterday. I’m realizing Lexington, Kentucky has so much hidden beauty I’ve yet to explore. You never know when you might  stumble upon a random flower garden down a side street on your way to dinner:) It just made me think of how romantic downtown can really be.

Happy Monday!

Do Your Jeans Hang Low?

Jeans: H&M //Sunglasses: Versace//Silver Bangle: Lucky Brand//

I’m back! 2 blogger hiatuses and a new camera later… It’s finally another edition of “Monday’s Outfit of the Week.” Bare with me, I know it’s been a while. I’ve been taking my time with the relaunch of Teeny Avo, making layout changes to the site and series planning :) so STAY TUNED!

I’m starting off this Monday in my favorite pair of comfy low rise jeans and my round Versace Sunglasses (aka my ‘Rih Rih Sunnies.’) I love everything about the frames in their collection. Madonna, Karlie Kloss, and Rihanna have been just some of the famous faces rocking the Versace 15′ campaign this year. Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a “sunglass snob” and the crazier the frame, the better–I ABSOLUTELY adore these!

Also loving H&M for obvious reasons: the jeans are inexpensive, comfortable, and are actually long enough (for all my tall girls who hate jean shopping.) The low rise hang pretty low too, so just be prepared, with cute underwear.

Links to pieces of my outfit are posted above in pink like always.

Signing off AND..‘may your clothes be comfy, your coffee be strong, and your Monday be short.’  <3

Lusting for Leather at $12.99

I had to take to the blogosphere to share a fabulous find this week! How does 100% genuine leather sound for $12.99? All the thanks goes to my local Salvation Army in Lexington, Kentucky. This Andrew Marc genuine leather jacket retails $212 +. Don’t spend harder, think smarter…thrift! You may have to be willing to put in a little money for dry cleaning or alterations –if you’re like me and are an avid thrifter for trenches and jackets. This leather jacket came with plenty of character …and baggage. It was complete with 80’s shoulder pads, but I could see a gem! I’m a fashionista who makes it happen! This meant spending $15 to get alterations done and remove the shoulder pads (compliments of the local Big and Tall store in Lexington.) I only wish I had before pics to show you the transformation!

Anyway, I wanted to give you guys a somewhat complete OOTD (outfit of the day) so I’ve included some new staple pieces in my closet here as well. My new FAVORITE Rebecca Minkoff purchase this past Christmas (#merryminkoff to me)…welcome “Avery.” It’s an awesome all black cross body and it’s by far one of the best purchases I’ve made. I’m also featuring my Dolce and Gabbana sunnies, DG4231 54, from last years spring collection–at Sunglass Hut. They’re a black cat-eye with a floral print inside. These pieces will make an appearance on the blog in future outfit posts! Links are below for where you can find these items or similar ones. Happy Shopping!…AND DON’T FORGET TO THRIFT AND DONATE ITEMS FROM YOUR CLOSET!

Dress: H&M Tank Dress // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Swing Bag *Sale* //Shoes: Aldo “Valleroy” Gladiator Heel *Sale*

Summer, not so fast! We still have a few more hours. With a handful of warm days left before we’re in a full fledged fall, it’s time to take advantage while you can! I love this “If Not Now When” tank dress from H&M. It can be worn under a leather jacket or layered with tights on a cool evening. I love garments that are simple, but can easily be dressed up.

I’ve had a lot of people asking me about these “Valleroy” gladiator heels from Aldo. They’re super easy to walk in, and coming from someone who really HATES walking in heels, this says a lot. These are also on sale right now, so grab while you can!

I wanted to throw in a settle pop of color. Of course, I brought back my favorite plum Rebecca Minkoff Swing bag. This baby is also on sale, so take advantage!

*Quick Tip*: I recommend going on Retailmenot.com and searching: “Rebecca Minkoff” for additional coupons whenever you decide to buy. You typically can double discount on Rebecca Minkoff’s site and get your handbags for a STEAL.

Forever 21 Mesh Crop Top //H&M Leggings// Dolce and Gabbana Sunnies

After a long blogger hiatus, Monday’s Outfit of the Week is back in full swing! In honor of the fast approaching fall season this post an ode to my seasonal favorite:  leggings and boots. I really loved this jersey crop with mesh arms, I found at Forever 21. I went ahead and paired it with my favorite high-waisted leggings, ShoeDazzle boots and accessorized with gold hoops and my Dolce and Gabbana sunnies.  Links to where you can find these pieces and similar ones are above.

Happy fall shopping, fashionistas :)
