3 Ways To Wear Green This Winter

Hey everyone and happy Friday! Who's ready for the weekend? I know I sure am! I have so much to do this weekend and so little time to get it done, but I'm ready to dive right in and make this one of my most productive weekends yet. I've been thinking all week about what I wanted to write about today and I was drawing up a blank until this morning while I was looking through my closet trying to decide what to wear. I love the color green and while I have several things in this shade I realized that I hardly ever wear it. I stood there looking at my beautiful green fur boots for a couple of minutes wondering why the heck they haven't left my closet this winter yet when it hit me...green is a hard color to match. Normally I just wear something black with green, but I don't really like the way these two shades look together...my personal opinion of course. So, I started looking at other shades and patterns that might go with the green items in my closet and I realized tan, nude, and brown are the absolute best shades to pair with green. So now comes the question...how do I style these items to make super cute outfits for winter? To help answer this question I decided to play on my Polyvore app for a bit and viola, I came up with 3 different styles using 3 different green items all while sticking with the tan/nude/brown color scheme :) 


#1-Casual
During the winter my main focus when it comes to fashion is being warm and comfortable. A simple green casual sweater is a great way to do just that which is why I chose one for this example. This sweater looks really cozy and I'd love to have this for all my shopping excursions and trips to the mall. I paired this sweater with a pair of denim skinny jeans and some brown boots. These boots are extremely casual and since they are flat will be really comfortable for any outdoor activities that you have to do this winter or indoor too if comfort is your main focus :) You can shop this look HERE.


#2-Dressy
All fashionistas love to get dressed up for a party or a night out on the town with their sweetie. Green is such a great color for a winter night out and I found this gorgeous little green dress that would be perfect for such an occasion. Yes it does have spaghetti straps, but adding a beautiful leopard faux fur coat like the one pictured would keep you super warm and add to the dressy beauty of the whole outfit. Add a pretty little pair of nude pointed toe heels and you have a great outfit for a dressy night out :) You can shop this look HERE


#3-Dressy Casual
Dressy casual is my favorite style year round but I don't always wear it during the winter. This outfit has changed my mind! This super cute green hooded jacket will keep you warm during this winter season but add a cute pair of nude heeled boots and you have just turned a simple casual outfit to dressy casual. Skinny jeans and a tan turtleneck sweater add the finishing touches to this adorable outfit and to be honest I kinda want this jacket myself :) You can shop this look HERE.


Do you have any green items in your closet that you've been wondering how you were going to wear? If so, I hope this post gave you some great ideas! If you have any style questions I'd be glad to answer them...just send me a message via Facebook or e-mail me at FashionableTigress@gmail.com. Be sure to spread the love by sharing this post with all your friends who may be struggling with those beautiful green shades as well. I hope you have an amazing weekend and happy shopping :)

Coral Bow Sweater

Happy hump day everyone! For most of you the week is halfway over but for me it's just starting. I've been off for the past 5 days and I have greatly enjoyed it but it's time for me to head back to work tonight. On the bright side I only have 2 days until the weekend :) Do you already have plans for the weekend? I do...work on my business and hang out with my sweetie, but before I get the rest of this week started I wanted to share with you the cutest little sweater I found at one of my favorite discount stores. So, what is this sweater and where can you find one for yourself?


The Sweater
I found this beauty on a recent shopping trip to Burke's Outlet with my mom. I was browsing through the racks when I spotted the back of this sweater. How cute are these bows?! I fell in love with it immediately and I knew I had to try it on. The sweater is snug in the arms then flares out to fit like a trapeze top which I thought was super cute. Burke's also had this sweater in green but mom says coral looks better on me so I went with this one. I always find the cutest stuff at Burke's Outlet and at less than $10 this sweater was a steal :) So, how did I end up styling this cutie and how can you change it up to match your style?


My Style
I wore this sweater on a day date with my sweetie and I wanted to be pretty yet comfortable so I decided to pair this sweater with my awesome high waisted skinny jeans from Hollister and these adorable leopard print flats that I recently found at Walmart. These are my favorite pair of jeans that I own. They have the perfect amount of stretch and they are high waisted which helps prevent muffin top. Not to mention they are slightly distressed which I love! These little leopard ballet flats are so comfortable and super cute...and they were less than $10! I love wearing leopard print with any solid color and I think these look great with this sweater. If you want to dress up the sweater a little more you can always wear a cute pair of wedges or heels instead of flats. To be more casual you could wear a cute pair of sneakers or UGGs. I chose to not wear an undershirt, but if you would feel more comfortable wearing one make sure it's a neutral color like nude or tan. No matter how you end up styling this beauty just be sure to look good doing it :)

Isn't this sweater adorable? Did you like the way I styled it? How would you style it differently? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your friends who would love this sweater as much as I do. I hope you enjoy the rest of your week and happy shopping :)

Must Have Monday

Hey everyone and happy Monday. I know it's a lot later than I normally post but I was feeling a bit sick last night and didn't start feeling better until late this afternoon. I'm guessing it was one of those 24 hour bugs that we all get from time to time...either that or the moonshine I drank yesterday LOL. Regardless of what made me ill in the first place I'm better and ready to conquer what's left of today. I hope you had an amazing weekend. Mine was very busy and productive, but I had a lot of fun getting everything done and spending time with my sweetie :) Since we are well into January already (where does the time go?) I decided that for today's post I'd show you some awesome jackets/coats that are must haves for this winter season and I'm sure you'll love them as much as I do. 


Must Haves
1-Marc Jacobs pink faux fur coat (Style bop, $1,319)
2-Tom Ford leather biker jacket (Tom Ford, $4,950)
3-Imitation fur bomber jacket (Inuinu, $120)
4-Abercrombie and Fitch classic fur puffer jacket (Pinterest, $30)
5-Red dress coat (With chic, $34)

I LOVE fur jackets and this one is super cute. I love the vibrant pink color and the leopard print is so adorable! It's also faux fur so if you're an animal lover you can wear it without feeling guilty. It's a little pricey for me, but it's Marc Jacobs so I shouldn't expect to get it for less ;) Leather biker jackets are everything! I need one of these in my life ASAP. Maybe not this particular one because I really don't want to pay almost 5,000 for a jacket, but I'm sure I can find a similar one that's just as cute for a lot less :) Bomber jackets are everywhere right now and I especially love the ones lined with fur like this one. How cute is it?? I would definitely wear this beauty every day and the price really isn't that bad either ;) Abercrombie and Fitch always makes the cutest fur jackets and this puffer jacket is so adorable. They are usually a lot more expensive too, but this particular one is selling on Pinterest for only $30! How cool is that? :) My favorite type of coat and sadly one I don't yet own is the dress coat. This red one is gorgeous! I love how long and elegant it is. It would go perfectly with so many of my dressy outfits that now I feel like I have to have one of these soon...if only I can find one that isn't made of wool (I'm allergic). I do know one thing for sure and that's I will have one of these beauties as soon as possible :) You can shop all these jackets/coats HERE.  


What's your favorite outerwear style to sport this winter? Which one of these is your favorite? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your friends who would love these jackets/coats as much as I do. I hope you have an amazing week and happy shopping :)

5 Discount Stores You Have To Shop Now

Hey everyone and happy Friday! I'm so glad the weekend is finally here. I'm off for the next 5 days and I can't wait to start doing all the awesome stuff I have planned. Girls night, double date, alone time with sweetie, relaxation day, and finally jury duty on Tuesday (not excited for the last one but at least I have the day off LOL). To celebrate all this wonderful time away from work I decided to write this post about one of my favorite things to do...SHOPPING! Bet you never guessed that one right ;) One thing I like more than simply shopping is getting an awesome deal so I have put together a list of 5 discount stores that I absolutely love where you can get great name brand clothing and accessories for really low prices.


#1-Burlington
If you've never shopped at Burlington before then you need to do so ASAP. They have the best accessories and I love shopping here for purses and jewelry. Of course they also sell clothing too which you can see on my recent outfit post HERE. I'd say my best score at Burlington was a cute Betsey Johnson wallet on clearance for $10! Yes you read that right!!! You never know what you'll find once you step through the door...it's like a huge treasure hunt and there's nothing I love more than the thrill of the hunt :) You can shop online or find a store near you HERE.


#2-Ross Dress For Less
This is probably my favorite of the 5 because they have the best prices ever! Just like Burlington, Ross is a huge treasure hunt and around every corner there's a great deal to be found. My best score here was a pair of UGGs for only $80. That was a rare find for me as I've never seen that brand at Ross before, but they do always have adorable Bearpaws for like $40. With it being winter we could all use a cute pair of fur boots :) You can shop online or find a store near you HERE.


#3-TJ Maxx
I've only been to this store a few times in my life, but every time I came out with some amazing stuff. This is actually a great place to shop for gifts for others especially around Christmas because they always have little gifts sets of various items really cheap. I'd have to say my biggest score here was the cutest Roxy hooded cardigan for only $25. This store is a bit more organized than the others so it's easier to find what you're looking for so if a treasure hunt isn't for you than you will love TJ Maxx :) You can shop online or find a store near you HERE.


#4-Marshalls
Like with TJ Maxx, I've only been to Marshalls a hand full of times but what I love about this store is they have a layaway. There have been so many times I'd be shopping at a discount store and have a buggy full of stuff but before I could head to the checkout I'd have to decide what I wanted more because I didn't have enough money for everything. I know you know what I'm talking about ladies! At Marshalls you can get it all with a small percentage down. My biggest score here was a pair of Ralph Lauren Polo jeans for only $30. Yes...I was really excited that day :) You can shop online or find a store near you HERE.


#5-Burke's Outlet
I love shopping here because they have an awesome rewards program! If you sign up for their Burke's One card (not a credit card) then every Friday you get 15% off your entire purchase and you get 1 point for every dollar you spend. Once you reach 200 points you get a $5 off coupon to use on your next visit. How cool is that? I'm always getting amazing discounts here on top of their already super low prices! I'd say my biggest score here was an awesome pair of Southpole plaid fur boots for only $25. This store is another treasure hunt so be prepared to unearth some great deals :) You can shop online or find a store near you HERE.


Have you ever been to any of these stores? Which one is your favorite? What has been your biggest score at a discount store? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your friends who love discount stores as much as I do. I hope you have an amazing weekend and happy shopping :)

Grey Sweater Dress

Happy hump day everyone! I can't believe this week is halfway over already! Where does the time go? Not that I'm complaining...I have a ton of things to do this weekend and I'm ready to get to it. I decided to take a few days off next week so I can get everything organized and I have jury duty (AGAIN) on Tuesday so I actually have a 5 day weekend which I'm extremely excited about! So, I really hope the next two nights fly by at work so I can start this much needed break. Before I get to that though I have the cutest sweater dress that I want to share with you. It's not only super soft and comfy but it's also quite warm and stylish as well. So, where did I get this awesome dress and where can you snag one for yourself?


The Dress
I found this dress while shopping with one of my friends at Burlington a few months back and I fell in love with it immediately. Burlington is a great place to find name brand items at really great prices. Of course they also sell brands that aren't so well known so be sure to dig through everything and you might just find the deal of a lifetime :) Unfortunately this beauty isn't available online so I linked a similar one below. The brand of this particular dress is Derek Heart which I've seen at several different stores including Walmart, but at less than $10 I couldn't pass it up.  The first thing that caught my attention was the color. I don't normally wear a lot of grey, but this one isn't a flat grey color. It has many different shades of grey and it's textured so it appears a lot thicker than it really is. The second thing I noticed was how soft it was. This dress is slightly plush which gives it that super soft feel and makes it super warm...perfect for the colder days of winter. The deciding factor for me was the style. I love shift dresses because they flow so perfectly and don't hug too tightly around the tummy (I love to eat so therefore I'm prone to bloating) so this dress was the perfect addition to my wardrobe. So, how did I end up styling this beauty and how can you change it up to match your style?


My Style
The day I wore this dress it was really cold outside, but I still wanted to wear a dress to church and I knew this one would keep me cozy so I decided to dress it up just a little. When I originally bought this dress I planned to wear some black UGGs and leggings with it, but I realized that was way too casual than what I wanted so I changed it to my new pair of black heeled over the knee boots from Wish that I literally got in the mail two days before wearing this outfit. These boots are amazing! I do Wish reviews from time to time here on TWW so I'm always shopping on there, but not everything is great quality. I was very happy with these cuties and for less than $15 they were a steal! They are actually on sale right now too so if you click on the link below it will take you right to them. If these boots aren't for you then you can always opt for the casual look mentioned above or you could wear some knee high flat boots instead. Also, some leggings and a cute pair of ballet flats might look great as well. Don't forget to throw on a cute scarf for some extra warmth and style and you're all set :) Just remember to pair this dress with solid colored shoes and accessories so you don't have patterns and textures fighting for attention.
