OOTD: Chains...Bows...& Zebra Stripes!

As much as I love my solid color tops, sometimes you just gotta go for that extra UMPH!

I put together this outfit SUPER last minute..aka an HOUR before I had to leave. I was stupidly stressing for almost 2 WEEKS over what I was going to wear to a night out down in Atlantic City with a bunch of friends to celebrate the BF's bday. I searched online and in a few stores, but I didn't want to spend alotta $ and nothing I saw was to my liking. Cut to the final outfit... besides the black cuff bracelet..I ended up using items that were already in my closet.

Sequin zebra stripe tank: Target $15
Black pencil skirt: Forever21 $20
Studded waist belt: TJ Maxx $10
Black heels: Franco Sarto at TJ Maxx $40
Black cuff bracelet: Forever21 $10

This was a casual outfit I put together for a casual Friday @ work. When I first laid eyes on this 'bow-ed' tee shirt, I thought it was super cute and it was on sale and added it to my shopping bag online right away. It reminded me of one of the tops from the Lauren Conrad Kohl's collection..anddd it was muchhh cheaper.

So when it finally arrived in the mail, I wasn't sure how to go about wearing it. Should I dress it up, dress it down, keep it as just a casual tee? So i decided to pair it up with some skinny jeans and heels..always does the trick right? ;)

Creme bow tshirt: New York & Co. $15
Dark skinny jeans: Zara $40
Black heels: Colin Stuart @ Victoria's Secret $30
Black bracelet cuff: Forever21
Cream rose earring studs: Aldo $12

Another work outfit...LOVE this black blazer. You can dress it up or down and it will polish off the outfit. See another example after this pic of another way I dressed it up.

Black jersey material blazer: TJ Maxx $30
Cream chain top: New York & Co. $16
Dark denim flare jeans: TJ Maxx $16
Cream heels: Payless Shoes $20
Gold & pink cuff: Banana Republic $12

For example, I wore this outfit to work and then met up with family @ a casino and dinner for my Mom's birthday.
