Thrown Together

Today's outfit is brought to you by my random 6:30am brain. So I wanted to wear this sheath dress, because it is SO versatile and when I bought it, I imagined at least 3 ways to wear it off the top of my head. THIS was not one of the ways. However, I was still really excited to wear the dress and I actually felt pretty good in this all day. I originally bought an almost identical dress at NY&Co for $38 on sale...and one day just happened to look at Avenue and found this one on clearance for $9.99. I was super pumped, so I am determined to wear it until it dies.
I promise this scarf has a lot of the same color red as my tights. it was just not too evident in photos.
Sheath Dress: Avenue, $9.99
Blazer: Old Navy,$25ish on sale last fall
Tights: Avenue, $6
Scarf: NY&Co, $12ish on sale last spring
Boots: Avenue, $49.90

Without the scarf, just for kicks:

And yet another new pair of boots from Avenue:
At first I was not sure how I felt about these boots. They're not really my typical style, but they had nothing but good reviews and the calf size claimed to be promising...and to my surprise, they are actually very loose on my calves so I get the look that I want. After wearing them for a day, though, I was very impressed at home comfortable they were and how stylish I felt wearing them. One of the S's even said to me, "You look like you're about to go jump on a horse" which I took as good thing. They are riding boots, after all. They also have a lace-up back, which is kind of cute and yet functional. My only complaint is that they make my normally pretty small feet look and feel huge...and it seems to me that they run a little big. I got them here and again, here is that 40%off coupon code (JLA4030).

Stay frugal, friends!



  1. I like the outfit! Black, grey sheath dresses never go out of style! Audrey Hepburn is testimony to that!

  2. I've said it before and I'll say it again...DRESS ME!

  3. I swear, you need to hit Avenue up and tell them to sponsor you because you definitely sent some business their way over the past couple of days, lol. I love this entire outfit, especially the colored tights, I have yet to try that.

  4. I just got those boots in brown! I got stopped by a stranger while I was grocery shopping because she liked them so much! I wish they had more sizes left in the black.

    Love the outfit!

  5. You look adorable in this outfit! Love the color of the scarf, as well as the bright tights!

  7. Love the extra pop of color the tights give. I have these same boots and feel like my feet look huge in them too!

  8. I want those boots so badly but they are sold out! Go figure! Im going to break down and buy them though...in brown.

  9. You look great! I can't believe that dress was less than 10 bucks! I would love to steal with look for work ASAP :0)
