Must have cardigans for Fall!

Fall is finally here! Fall fashion is my favorite. I break out all of my favorite sweaters, oversized flannels and beanies with my favorite jeans or leggings and feel cozy all season!

One of my favorite summer to fall transition pieces are cardigans! Cardigans are easy to pair with almost any outfit from jeans and a top to a dress. They’re the perfect transition piece when it’s chilly in the morning and warmer during the afternoon. Perfect for chilly office environments or an evening out.

You don’t have to break the bank while looking stylish. I’ve linked all of my favorite cardigans for fall that are all under $50 from some of my go-to stores!

Hooded cardigans

The only thing better than a cardigan sweater is a cardigan sweater with a hood. These are SO cute and stylish, and I can already picture myself wearing these on a rainy day with my favorite umbrella.

Printed cardigans

There’s nothing more stylish than a fun print. Animal prints are so in right now for fall and stripes are a classic wardrobe staple that you cannot go wrong with!

Textured cardigans

I am so obsessed with textured cardigans and love that the “popcorn” texture is back in style. These are some of my favorite textured cardigans that I’ve found that just look so comfy and cozy.

Solid colored cardigans

Last but not least, the wardrobe must-have of a solid colored cardigan. These fall colors of deep lilac, charcoal and mustard are so in for fall right now that you’ve got to find one that you love to play around with. They’re so easy to style with a fun print top or dress!

Do you have a favorite cardigan you love?

Slide into fall with this new shoe trend!

One shoe trend that I just can’t get enough of this summer are slides! Caroline and I have both been obsessed with slide sandals and mules this summer and they are the perfect staple to add to your wardrobe and an easy transition into fall!

Here are some of my favorites:

Also some others:

Kendall & Kylie Shiloh Chain Leather Slide Sandal

Nordstrom Rack is always my go-to for shoes and when I saw these chain leather slides on sale a few months ago, I knew I just had to get them! I have these in white and I am obsessed and get so many compliments on them. PLUS they’re on sale for 70% off right now!

Adidas Slides

For a sportier look, I got these Adidas slides in white and love them. They’re so comfortable and look sleek for coming from the gym or taking the dogs on a walk. Plus they’re on sale at Journey’s right now!

NotRated Slides

Another pair of slides that I love that Caroline purchased recently from Journey’s are these slides from Not Rated! They come in black, white and nude and they’re SO cute. I love the floral detail on them and they’re dressier than wearing flip-flops!

How to pair Fenty Beauty and JCPenney Fashion x Sephora inside JCPenney

Exciting things happening! Many of you have tried some of the products from Fenty Beauty, but have you SEEN the new products yet?! I am SO pumped! In collaboration with Sephora inside JCPenney I will be showing you how I styled three different outfits from JCPenney with three different colors from Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle Lip Collection which I got at Sephora inside JCPenney too!

JCPenney opened Sephora inside JCPenney at their stores in 2006 and they are doing big things! High quality clothes AND high end beauty products in one place?? YES PLEASE. It’s a great way to get everything you need to shop for in one place.

Sephora inside JCPenney also offers free mini-makeovers at their locations! Guess who got to go in-store and try the new Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle line? YES, ME! This line has 14 amazing, matte lipstick shades that will seriously leave you speechless! I decided to do 3 different outfits with my #FentyFace and match 3 fun colors from the Mattemoiselle Collection.

Click HERE to check out all the colors!

Below, I have on this Project Runway Knot Waist Sweatshirt Dress (perfect for chilly days). I love the details in the middle of this dress because it accentuates my waist and my curves. Sometimes, in the winter, we end up of losing our shape with all of the thick clothes and layers we have to wear to stay warm!

Direct link to shop is HERE.

Comes in 2 colors: Purple & Grey. I’m wearing a size small.

Currently on sale for under $30!

I decided to pair this outfit with the Mattemoiselle lipstick in the shade “Griselda”. I think this lip shade ties the outfit together nicely and isn’t “too girly”. 

Link to shop is HERE.

Also wearing these awesome suede, knee high boots from Liz Claiborne! I am obsessed with these boots. I always have a hard time finding a pair of boots that don’t slouch down while walking, these stay in place!

Link to shop is HERE. Currently 80% off!! No joke, $20!

If you have heard anything about Fenty Beauty at this point, you know that Rihanna is killin’ it when it comes to quality! And above all- she actually made products for ALL skin types and shades. No, seriously…all of them. A lot of brands claim to be all-inclusive, but end up falling short. Not this line! The colors are SO rich and yet still light and wearable! And the shades go from light to dark, and everything in between!

Click HERE to shop the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r foundations.

The second outfit I put together has more contrast. I LOVE contrast in my outfits, and these Mattemoiselle shades will have plenty of options for that! SO, can we talk about these bell sleeves?! This blouse is from T.D.C Funnel – The sleeves are the perfect length so I still feel comfortable going out to eat and not getting food all over! Yeah, I’m clumsy! So what?! Haha.

Click HERE to shop!

They currently have black in stock. I’m wearing a size small!

I paired this top with black pants from BELLE + SKY and, yep, those suede knee high boots, again! I told you I love them!

The Mattemoiselle lipstick Plush Matte lipstick shade I went with for this outfit is “Shawty”. I swear, the names of these lip colors are almost just as awesome as the line itself! I chose this shade because it’s a much darker color and it looks awesome against a white top. Plus, it made my outfit just a bit more edgy.

Click HERE for the lipstick!

My third outfit was honestly my favorite and kind of out of my comfort zone — which is why I’m releasing how much I loved it. I was challenged to pick an outfit I usually wouldn’t wear and pair it with a color lip I haven’t done before either. Challenge taken and I’m in love!!

I rocked this killer floral track suit with my feminist t-shirt underneath.

Don’t you just love this? I now wanna wear this jacket all the time.

Project Runway Floral Bomber Jacket – it’s currently on sale – under $20!!

Click HERE to shop the jacket.

Project Runway Floral Track Pants – also on sale – under $35!!

Click HERE to shop the pants.

My feminist t-shirt is also from the Project Runway Line! It’s currently under $10.

Click HERE to shop this graphic t-shirt!

For this look I wanted to pair it with a FUN & in-your-face color! I picked “One Of The Boyz” — it’s a gorgeous lilac color. I’m glad I tried something I normally wouldn’t. It made me want to explore more when it comes to colors in my makeup routine!

An Easy Way To Wear A Dress In Winter!

Wintertime would be SO much cooler (pun intended) if we could continue wearing our favorite clothes without freezing to death. Well, luckily there are a couple things we can do to keep frostbite at bay. When the cold air hits, there are still a ton of outfits we can get away with, as long as it isn’t super windy. NOTHING can get past that wind! I LOVE wearing dresses year round, so I am always thinking of new ways to style them and stay warm(ish).

As we all know, layering is so important when trying to stay warm. The dress I am wearing is from one of my favorite stores and it’s linked below! It has thin fabric, but it’s layered with a thicker slip underneath. I also like that the sleeves are long and thin, so I can wear it under virtually ANY jacket or coat.

NEXT- Leggings, tights, stockings-oh my! I picked these fun ones up at my local Macy’s Backstage inside Macy’s (thank you for the gift card!!)

You could be wearing the most simple dress but be able to jazz it up perfectly with the right pair of tights or stockings! I have found some amazing and inexpensive stockings at a few stores this season and they are linked below for you. The ones I am wearing below are flower printed, so they are edgy, but still feminine. I like pairing this dress with a black coat that runs a little longer than the dress itself, that way I can still show off my stockings, and ankle boots (or booties) !

Alright, so we will stay reasonably warm for a quick walk to the movies (or wherever you are going that night) from the car. Right? Right! What are we missing?

Yup- ACCESSORIES! One thing I will always adore about accessories is that the weather doesn’t matter! The fashion gods didn’t let us down in that department. (thank you, fashion gods!) Below the sunnies I have linked you can shop and also get $15 each or anything from their website by using code: tonyamichelle — every dollar saved counts!!

I decided to wear these round, jet black, sunnies to pull together my whole outfit. With my black boots, my belt, and my sunnies, everything comes together nicely!

Also the lip color I’m wearing is linked HERE.

So, like I said earlier, this outfit is a bit edgy, but still feminine. I kept that same vibe with my makeup as well. I was a little light on my eyes, but decided on a darker lipstick. You can also find similar circle earrings here!

Well, I hope you all like this look as much as I do!

Shop the latest fashion trends with ZAFUL

I’ve been hearing so much about ZAFUL – a one stop shop online for the latest and greatest fashion trends, for affordable prices. I teamed up with them today to share some of my favorites picks! I will also be sharing some others looks later cause I just placed another order!!

**At the end of this post are some great discount codes to use**

It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for a new dress, the latest pearl sweater trend or even some pom pom action – ZAFUL has you covered and won’t break your bank.

I’ve been dying over the over the “pearl” trend and I had to get my hands on one of these sweaters. It comes in 3 colors and it’s under $30! I’m wearing a medium. Direct link to shop is HERE!

I’m all about fun patterns and making a statement, which you guys already know. I saw this Mesh floral pattern dress and had to have it. 

How fun is this? The quality on this is LEGIT. I purchased in brown cause I wanted my hair to show when wearing. It comes in black, green and brown!

I styled mine with some hunter green booties. You can add black tights and even do some thigh highs! Again, taking one piece and being able to wear it in multiple seasons is great.

It’s under $20! Runs true to size. I’m wearing a Medium. (I’m 5’7″)

Direct link to purchase is HERE.

Another sweater that I fell in love with is this pink pompom pullover!! I love being able to wear the latest trends and not have to be sad about how much I paid for it when I decide to donate or give to a friend. 

It’s easy to style, I personally wore it with some jeans and sneakers. You could wear black pants and heels, add a statement necklace and you’re ready to go. I love pieces you can wear different ways.

It comes in “one size” – it would fit a S/M perfectly. It’s under $25. 

Direct link to shop is HERE.

These jeans are also something I had to pick up. High waisted destroyed denim!!

Can’t ever have enough good jeans, this fit me like a glove and I might order a second pair.

They run true to size! I’m wearing a size 27 (I usually wear a 27 or 4) They are under $30! They have a few sizes left!! Direct link to shop is HERE.

I also picked up these stunner shades! The Double Rims Pilot Sunglasses in Black, They are under $10. No joke, I was shocked and didn’t believe it at first. They are well made and I’ve been wearing them every other day for the last 2 weeks! Direct link for these sunnies are HERE.

If you’re anything like me with sunnies, I sit on them and lose them, for under $10 you can’t beat it.

Let’s Celebrate the Holidays in Affordable Glam! Esmara By Heidi Klum At Lidl

*This post was sponsored by Lidl – All opinions and outfit ideas are my own 😉 

Heidi Klum is back with Esmara for Lidl and this second collection made my heart skip a beat. You add sequins, velvet, sparkles and faux fur to an affordable price tag and I’m going IN!!! I can’t get enough of this collection. I wanted to wear everything and share everything in one day with you guys. There are so many amazing pieces that I will she showcasing throughout the next month, so keep your eyes on my blog and social media channels. This collection hits Lidl locations on December 7th and will sell out quick!! You can view her first collection by clicking HERE, also search to see if their is a Lidl near you by clicking HERE.

I’m a sucker for a staple piece sweater that you can wear with jeans when out and about during the day, sweats when you’re at home relaxing or running errands and even adding a skirt for a night out on the town. Also a huge fan of when the sweater is only $14.99!! Yep, that’s right. Above you can just image how soft that sweater is, trust me– you need one!

Comes in sizes 2-12. I’m wearing a size 4.

Another favorite piece of this collection is the jumpsuit! There are two different options that she is releasing, the other one I will showcase in a later post. It’s also under $20! It’s $14.99!!!

Comes in “One Size” – I’m usually a size 4 and this fit me.

I added a fun faux fur stole as an accessory to this outfit! It comes in light pink and black. You can adjust how tight or loose you’d like it to be, you’ll see below a photo of how it ties.

I’m wearing a size 4 and is only $9.99!!

A great item to add to a plain t-shirt, dress or jumpsuit like I did. Sky is the limit for how you can use this accessory in your daily outfits.

Heidi designed some GORGEOUS camisoles! Comes in 4 different colors and even 1 velvet.

Since the weather here in Virginia has been getting chilly, I added a plain white t-shirt under mine. Add some fun accessories and you’re ready to go. I went with a black chocker to vibe into my 90’s look. Anyone else love how fashion trends are coming back? I know I do!!

Sizes 2-12. I’m wearing a size 4. Only $5.99!

She designed another 3 pairs of jeans/pants for this collection and yet again — perfect fit! I’m wearing a size 6 in these. They come in Black, black faux jean/leather look and dark denim. For only $9.99 you could get multiple pairs — I know I went back to the store and bought 2 more pairs for later. When I love something, I buy it in every color and multiples — no shame here!!

This clutch is from her first collection and is one of my favorites, I use it all the time!

I love how easy it is to take her pieces and mix -n- match them. You have total control on taking any staple piece from her collections and making it into your own fashion statement or a day to day piece for work or event! I hope you enjoyed some of my styling ideas for her new collection. I also hope to see you at the Manassas Lidl location on Dec. 7th! I will be there helping you style the new collection.

Learn more HERE about Lidl and how they give you high quality for a low price. (You already know I love that!)

How to transition your favorite skirt from Summer into Fall.

You can easily take your favorite skirt from an earlier season, pair with some tights and you can rock it all year ’round! It’s a great way to not only be able to enjoy one of your favorite pieces of your wardrobe but to even save from having to buy another item! Don’t get me wrong, I am all about finding great deals and adding new staple pieces in your closet, but also re-using items. Don’t forget how much we waste and throw out, re-use or even donate. What item you might be over, someone else might be looking for! Just my 2-cents for the day!!

With that being said! I found this skirt at Macy’s Backstage — it’s part of Macy’s but a separate sections where they discount items to move them out of the store. If you haven’t checked if they have one at your local Macy’s you can click HERE to find out. It’s an amazing way to find a great deal.

I was gifted a few items from my local store and this suede skirt and these booties were two of the items I could leave without!! This skirt is out of stock but I have linked some great trendy skirts below. You could wear them to work with tights or skip the tights for date night or a night out with the girls!

I always buy 4-5 pair of tights for the Fall/Winter season and wear them out! I’ve linked some great affordable ones below. Black is usually my go-to color but this season I think I might add a red, grey and olive pair to my collection. I’ve been leaning towards the bolder side these last few months. (As if you couldn’t tell with some of my #ootds – haha)

I hit the jackpot when I found these booties by GUESS at Macy’s Backstage. They were marked down from $135 to under $30!!!!! I was like “Yep, coming home with mama!” – Also they have great support. I was shocked to be honest. Didn’t know how painful it would be to break them in. I’ve noticed with all the GUESS shoes I’ve purchased, they have all been conformable. Good job Guess, high five to you for not killing my feet. Below I’ve linked some similar styles that I love and they are actually on sale as well. Click any of the photos below to shop and find out the sale price!

Can’t go wrong with a good classic GUCCI. Linked below are some of my favorites including the one I’m wearing. Different colors can be seen by clicking the photos below.

Sunnies — for me, it’s a way for myself not to get busted for rolling my eyes. lol Anyone else? Can’t be just me. Linked below are some great pairs for a reasonable price! (First two pairs use TONYA15 for 15% off)

Last but not least is this gorgeous top! I love when I can get away without having to accessorize as much, I know total excuse but it’s true. This top seals the deal for me! A peek-a-boo cut out in the neck which makes a choker. Thank you and you’re welcome. haha Direct link is below, also comes in 4 colors and I’m wearing a small! I also linked some of my favorite others from their “top” section!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you got an idea how to turn one of your earlier seasoned pieces into something you can rock for Fall or Winter! xx, Tonya Michelle
