Alice and I spent a lovely afternoon hitting the sale racks. We are seasoned bargain hunters and we both lucked out with some fabulous deals from Lord & Taylor today. Lord & Taylor is always a go-to store for me, the sale rack is really reliable for work, casual, and evening fashion. Alice and I were both on the hunt for pieces that will transition between fall and winter and will take us from our desks to dinner.
The first top I came across was a Vince Camuto top. This top is a little brighter than my usual choice for a blouse but the floral did not overwhelm me. This will add a splash of color to my collection of black slacks.
If you have not noticed yet, you will, black and white dominate my wardrobe. I promise I try to incorporate color and I try to buy different pieces that are not carbon copies of what is already hanging in my closet but I could not walk away from this find. Alice suggested I pair this DKNY black and white tunic with a pair of black tights and pumps once the weather cools down. The shoulder cutouts hit in the just the right spot so no unsightly bra strap sticking out. Mine is missing the black belt but I have a jeweled BCBG belt that cinch the waist in perfectly!
Again, not straying too far from my color pallet here, but this is a very versatile basic I could not walk away from. Unfortunately I did not see this exact Nic + Zoe top online but there is a great selection in store and online. I can dress this up or down. I can wear it during this hot September days and pair a blazer and riding boots with it in a few weeks.
Check out Alice’s gorgeous finds:
Enjoy your long weekend (I will be back to the grind on Monday commiserating with anyone else who is working through the holiday!)
