Puppy Love

Sweater: Forever 21 (super old, similar here) // White t-shirt: Old Navy // Pants: Forever 21 // Necklace: Forever 21 (similar) // Shoes: Target // Purse: Kate Spade (similar)

I feel like I have been on a roll with these animal printed clothing pieces lately! Also, I want to point out that my outfit posts for the next couple of months may feature clothing pieces that are either have been in my closet for a long time or I may be re-styled from previous outfit posts. Bottom line is, I probably won't be having new clothing pieces in my posts for a few months because of a couple of reasons.

1. I'm making it my goal this year to be better at managing my money. I went a little overboard last year and I just feel that I need to save more. 

2. I have a lot of clothes. I mean, a looot. There are many things in my closet that have been in there for months and still have tags on them. I need to show some of my clothing pieces some love. 

I'll try my best to find and link items that are similar to the pieces that I am wearing if the exact one is no longer in stock. After all, aren't fashion posts like this suppose to be used as inspiration anyways? I am making it my goal to not buy new clothes until April (because I cannot not go shopping on my 21st birthday, am I right?) so we'll see how I hold up! 

Whew. That was a long spew. Now, on to my outfit!

So, I have had this adorable puppy dog sweater sitting in my closet for years and I probably have only worn it mayyyybee twice (see what I mean about needing to give my clothing pieces more love?) I always joke around with my friends saying this is my "old lady sweater" haha. 

I paired this sweater with my favorite white tee from Old Navy and some maroon skinnies to give it a pop of color. I think this outfit is so festive for the Valentine's Day season because it just reminds me of Puppy Love (hence the title..). 

I hope you all are having a wonderful day and let me know down in the comments below if you have ever had a break from shopping before. As a shopaholic myself I think this may be a slight challenge.. haha.

  1. I love your necklace in this post- so different and cute! And good for you for making a resolution to be smarter with money this year- one of the downsides of the blogging industry is the pressure to always spend, spend, spend! I wish that more bloggers would do more posts to focus on re-styling what they already have. :-)

    1. Thanks girl, your comment really means a lot! I totally get the pressure to constantly spend money on clothes in the blogging world, but sometimes you just have to sit back and say you've had enough. I hope you're having a great day girl!

  5. Managing money is SO important. It’s one of the reasons I don’t buy a ton of new clothes for myself. I think you’re making an extremely smart decision & who needs new clothes ALL the time anyway?! Your outfits are always so cute, I know you have tons in your closet to restyle!

  10. I have a friend who is obsessed with dogs – she would absolutely cherish this cardigan!

    Good for you for deciding to be financially responsible this year! Check out Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University – it's a transformative class on managing budgets and controlling your finances rather than them controlling you. It's a revolutionary teaching, really!

  11. Love the necklace! I tend to have a pile of clothes with tags on them waiting to be worn too. When the pile gets bigger, it's definitely time to stop shopping. Haha!
