Trendy On A Budget

Looking good shouldn't cost that much!

Sweatin’

PeterPilotto for Target_Etsy_Gap_Ivanka Trump_coverNot gonna lie, but I am pretty excited that the ‘sweat’ trend is still going strong. Gone are the days where sweats are reserved for lounge wear or carry the connotation of laziness, sloppiness, etc. Quite the opposite is true these days! Throw on an embellished or graphic print sweatshirt, a pair of skinnies and heels (or sneaks) and you’ve got yourself a sporty chic look with minimal effort.

So here’s my second installment of the Peter Pilotto for Target collabo. Florals, prints and pastels thrown together (but cleverly placed), on a sweatshirt makes this one a keeper. It was finally a warm day in Boston and I was able to go coat-less, allowing this stunner to shine. To keep the shine going, I added a bling-y necklace. I just couldn’t help myself!

What’s your take on the whole sweat trend?

Outfit Details:

Floral Check Sweatshirt: Peter Pilotto for Target, $29.99. If you are lucky, you might be able to nab one on clearance in-store. Here are a few embellished sweaters for your perusal: (1) Piperlime: Hive & Honey Eyelet Sweatshirt, $49; (2) Gap: Floral Statement Sweatshirt, $44.95. Use code CARD40 thru 3/16 with your store card and save 40% off your purchase; and (3) Target: Xhilaration Elbow Chiffon Detailed Sweatshirt, $19.99.

Necklace: c/o Etsy. It was just by chance that I ended up with this necklace. I went to purchase a necklace for the winner of a recent giveaway. When the necklace arrived, it was the incorrect one (the one I am wearing). The Etsy shop owner told me to keep this one and she mailed me the correct one!

Rings: (1) Crown midi rings picked up at Pretty Reckless, a local South Boston boutique, for $8 (set of 2)! For something similar, I’m loving the midi rings from Bauble Bar; (2) Trio of gold stackable rings by gorjana-griffin from Rue La La, $29.90. As an alternative, the G Ring Set is available at gorjana-griffin, $45; and (3) Gold bands are gifts from the parental units.

Jeans: Gap (always skinny), $42. Use code CARD40 thru 3/16 with your store card and save 40% off your purchase.

Patent Studded Pumps: Ivanka Trump (galyn) from Lord&Taylor, $54.99. Sadly, they are now sold out at L&T. However, after a quick Google search, I located them on 6pm.com, $81.99, which is still less than the original price of $150.
