How many of you want to look trendy but don’t want to break the bank? Well I am here to save your wallet! I went home to visit my family this past weekend and made a Walmart stop with my mom. Where I’m from we call it “Wally World.” I always forget that they can actually have some pretty cute items!

This isn’t my first rodeo with Walmart and their fashion. They actually have a good selection of clothes, jewelry and accessories, including purses. I wanted to go because my mom showed me a super cute pair of ankle boots she recently bought for $16! When I headed to the women’s section, I was kinda in heaven! Everything pictured, was under $12. Seriously!

Black Bell Tie Sleeve Sweater Black Bell Tie Sleeve Sweater

Let’s start with the bell-sleeved sweater. I’ve seen one similar on other bloggers that are around $40. This one was only $12! The material is actually soft and thick which is why this was such a great deal. Not to mention, the adorable tie detail that I love! There were several other colors but ya’ll know me, I love black.

Mustard Yellow Henley-70s Fashion

Next item that caught my eye was this simple mustard yellow thermal. First of all, I love the mustard color this season. It totally gives that 70s vintage vibe. I would wear this as a layering top and I have a really cute quilted vest I’d pair with it. It only cost me $7. Seriously, these prices are almost unbeatable. Watch was not from Walmart but you can get one here! Use discount code “THUYSAVENUE20” for 20% off. 🙂

Mustard Yellow Henley & Bubble Earrings Black Bell Tie Sleeve Sweater & White Tassel Earrings

I’ve been on the hunt for tassel and bubble earrings that I like because I have been seeing these EVERYWHERE. I don’t wear earrings enough to really break the bank but BOTH of these were $2 each. Yeah! The tag said $4 but they rang up as $2! I didn’t even question it, I said just throw it in the bag. Que “Throw It In the Bag” by Fabolous.

Mustard Yellow Henley-70s Fashion & Shopper Bag

Last item that was almost a steal was this really cute reversible tote. I LOVE TOTES. I have a giant tote from Target in Camel and I have been searching for a black one that I really like. Found her for $10 which is honestly so good! I’ve found some that I like for more cost. I’m glad I waited to find this one and it’s reversible! One side is pleather while the other is suede. I’m into suede this fall so it’ll be this side for some time.

When I think of Walmart, I usually think of the website “people of Walmart” LOL and groceries because I shop for them there. So I do forget about their clothes and accessories. I just love their prices, even for make up! Don’t be afraid to shop at Walmart because it isn’t name brand or designer. I always feel pressured to buy things that I can’t afford because everyone else has it or does it. That’s thanks to social media for the most part but I am so satisfied when I get something for a bargain! Do any of you shop at department or super stores like Walmart? Comment down below!

What To Wear To Work

Guys! I’ve worked so hard on getting this post to you! Many of us work a full-time job and some need a little inspiration to show their inner #BOSSBABE. I work in an office and it’s business casual but some days are more formal than others (when visiting a customer, etc). I put together 5 outfits just for you for 5 days of work. These are easy and versatile, ranging from minimalist to total boss babe chic. Whether you’re in a corporate job or even a teacher, you deserve to feel confident!

Outfit #1 Basics

What to Wear to Work- Stripe Blouse and Black Slacks What to Wear to Work- Stripe Blouse and Black Slacks What to Wear to Work- Stripe Blouse and Black Slacks

Staples in your closet are black slacks, you can never have too many, a basic cotton button down blouse and a classic pair of black pumps. Believe it or not, I thrifted my slacks here for $3.99 and the top was on sale from H&M last fall for $17. I found the heels at TJ Maxx for $20. Here are similar, affordable options for the pants, blouse, and shoes. The shirt and pants can easily be found at a thrift store. I recommend ThredUp! Ladies, tuck in those shirts. It really gives that professional look and accentuates your waist. If you’re short, like me, it also makes you look taller.

Outfit #2 Turtle Neck & Prints

These are not slacks, they are leggings! Yes, you heard that right. I wore these to work the other day and got so many compliments. I love the print and love that they are leggings! I recently got these from Loft during one of their sales for $30. They are awesome quality too. The sweater is from Loft too but I got it last winter. It is honestly my go-to store for work wear! I always wait for a good sale, that means when the items on sale plus an additional percent off. They often do this, you just have to check out their site. Here is a similar turtleneck and these are so versatile! Let me go ahead and point out that mules are my all new favorite obsession of flats. I got these from Amazon but they are everywhere! Here are some from Target.

Outfit #3 Chiffon

Army green is one of my favorite colors this year and this one is just perfect. I found a similar one from Loft that is on sale! These are the same slacks as earlier, obviously. Again ladies, tuck in that shirt! Carry that power with you and be your own boss babe. I just love the way a tucked in shirt looks. I paired this outfit with these super cute leopard print mules from the Circus line by Sam Edelman. For $34.99, I just couldn’t resist and they’re my first pair of print shoes! You could also change it and wear those black pumps.

Outfit #4 Denim & Suede

Guys! I AM OBSESSED with this vest! OH. MY. GOSH. It’s the ‘Cassidy Vest‘ from a local boutique in North Carolina called BohoBlu. They have a ton of trendy and affordable pieces! The suede is such good quality, I could probably wear it every day. It also comes in black! Ugh, I am so tempted to order it but SELF-CONTROL girl! Anyways, gosh how cute does it look with a denim shirt? It’s the perfect fall combo! I am in love. I just paired it with a pair of skinny jeans, cause I can wear them in my office, and my favorite black ankle booties. I talked about them here in a previous post! You can wear this not only to work but anything after!

Outfit #5 Classic Black

YAS Honey! I saved the best for last (in my opinion). I love all black. Like most, I have a ton of black in my wardrobe and it’s always what I gravitate to when picking out a piece. My friend and I were like “oh my gosh” when I tried this look on. Black is the easiest color to transition into work wear because it is so versatile. You already know about the ‘Cassidy Vest’ but these suede boots are just ugh! I bought these bad girls two years ago from Kmart for $30. Here’s two similar pair not heeled and these have a heel. Perfectly paired with a black blouse.

*Does finger snap* I was so excited to put this post together for you all. I love each of these outfits uniquely and I hope that it inspires you to just bring your best forward in the workforce. Make yourself stand out from the others and scream confidence when you walk into a room. You are your own boss babe. Now go kill the game and show me your best looks!
