These days it seems like statement everything is in. From earrings to sleeves to collars, if your look is making a statement of any kind, you’re likely on trend. But how do you make a statement trend your own without going overboard? When Victorian Collars crossed from runway to mainstream this year, I wasn’t sure how to pull it off. It just seemed so high fashion, I figured no ordinary woman would be able to swing it. You know what I mean? But I was wrong! Victorian Collars have evolved into an every-woman trend that incorporates two of my other favorite things – lace and ruffles.
This lightweight sweater from Target’s A New Day collection allows you to achieve that Victorian look while also being a great top for everyday wear. Even better, it comes in at an affordable price being right under $25. It’s available in two colors – pink and grey – and although I opted for the grey top (go figure, I seem incapable of buying anything but neutrals in colder weather) remember that pink is also a trending color this season. Although it may seem to go against nature, you can and should rock the color pink throughout the fall/winter seasons. The material of this top makes it great for our current transition weather and could be paired with cropped jeans, a skirt or with skinnies and booties as I did. Try tucking in the sweater or doing a half-tuck with the front to make any outfit instantly chicer.
Finally, while you’re at Target picking up this top, make sure to check out SugarFix’s line of jewelry. For this outfit, I’m wearing their statement earrings in black, which are a great wardrobe staple for colder weather. SugarFix is owned by Baublebar so has similar styles to Baublebar, but everything is always under $30. I own several other pieces of their jewelry and can attest to their quality (just don’t let your cat get them like Frank did – *eye roll*).
Kev & I spent the weekend visiting with my parents who were in town and went to a local orchard on Sunday. We had no idea how big apple picking was until we moved up here. Did you guys know the Honeycrisp was invented in Minnesota? I’m obsessed with Honeycrisp although could do without the hefty price tag. Kevin calls them the “Cadillac” of apples. LOL. 😂 In other news, we are finally done, DONE with unpacking! I couldn’t be happier because I feel like we’re finally out of the limbo and back to our (new) normal. This week we’re picking up a floor mirror for our master since ours broke in the move, and I may venture to the motherland (AKA Mall of America).
What’s on your plate for the week? I hope you’ve had a happy and productive start to your week!
