Black & White & Looks Good All Over!

I had a work conference last week and it was a little chilly again! I paired my $6.98 “boutique” Caché pants (they’re stretchy like yoga pants!) with a $4.98 black and white floral print top and a retro Donna Toran blazer. I can’t remember how much I paid for the blazer because I’ve had it for so many years and worn it so many times!

The black and white peep toes are from White House Black Market (before making their way to Goodwill, of course!): you’ve seen them before in a big shoe haul.

Sometimes it is just black and white, but when it is, it needs to be perfect and crisp. It helps if it was totally affordable!

I think I look pretty sharp; what about you!?

Freezing, Schmeezing!

Brrrr! Were you ready for this cold snap? I was, thanks to Goodwill!

I brought out my favorite “Florida” sweater, an Ann Taylor piece I bought a few months ago for $4.98 and paired it with a pair of white Talbot’s dress pants for $6.98. (These pants aren’t stretchy and it’s post-holiday season. Oof.)

 

I thought maybe the camouflage would allow me to blend into the walls and avoid working, but alas, that did not work 😉

But what about outside?! My thin-blooded arms would freeze! Nahhhh. I’ve got them covered (pun intended) with this (maybe vintage?) nifty maroon blazer that’s one of my favorite color pop pieces! It’s wool and is VERY warm and has cost me about a quarter per wear at this point since it’s been with me for so many years. It’s traveled to Philadelphia and Boston and has never let me down.

I personally love this chilly opportunity to wear the things in my closet that only see light once a year!

What is your favorite cold weather Goodwill find?
