H&M is having a sale! If you are like me and try to only shop sales, clearance racks, etc., then take a look at the outfits I put together solely from items currently on sale.
A year or so ago, I purchased a few items from what used to be SheInside.com. They have since changed their name to SheIn.com and have also changed a few things about they clothing they sell. For one, it no longer appears to be sized for 12-year old girls. At least 12-year old American girls! Seriously, though. A few of the pieces I got the first time around were sized incredibly small. I’m not tall, but these definitely did not appear to be clothes that should be worn by regular-sized women.
Cut to a month ago: I noticed that lots bloggers were wearing SheIn clothing again. So, I decided to give them another try. Boy, am I glad I did! They have on-trend items, which are quite affordably-priced. Here are a few of the items I got:
Details: Tunic Dress // Lace Top // Skirt
Every item from SheIn worn in the photos above was less than $20! The skirt was only $14 if that gives you a sense of the affordability. The one caveat about shopping on SheIn.com is that you have to be very aware of the sizing when ordering. Although they have gotten better about catering to American body types, sizing does still vary by item and some items are one-size fits all or may change depending on the cut for the garment. That said, I was able to stick to small’s and medium’s for the most part. Note that I am also somewhat vertically challenged, so items like the blue and white tunic dress might fit others more like a tunic top than a tunic dress, haha. Finally, shipping times can vary from days to 1-2 weeks. To ease your anxiety, SheIn provides tracking information so you can plan receipt of your package accordingly! 🙂
Otherwise, I say, go wild and fill up your online shopping cart! It’s a great place to back-to-school shop for teenagers, college students, and even young professionals like myself. Wait…am I still considered a young professional!? Gawd, I hope so! 😛
Until next time! Stay ‘Chic’!
Pinspired Navy Work Outfits
Inspiration for my work outfits comes from many places, although Pinterest provides a great deal of inspiration on a daily basis. I have an entire board dedicated to ideas/inspiration for my work outfits. Since I surmise that not everyone who reads my blog has a Pinterest account, it behooves me to share some of my favorites with you in this post! Here are some ideas for putting together outfits for work with a navy color palette.

All images with links to blog available on my ‘Career’ Pinterest board (here). I’m in love with them all and want to recreate each of them! What do you think?? Any favorites?
