Blazers & Jackets

Every woman should have a white, structured jacket in their wardrobe. It is perfect paired with dress pants, jeans, shorts, skirts, and even dresses. It can make a simple pair of jeans and a fitted t shirt turn into a complete and stylish outfit!

Crafted from 100% cotton, this structured, lightweight jacket comfortably tops off your summertime looks. The slightly puffed sleeves, band collar and flared cuffs are just some of this jacket’s special touches. In a flattering peplum style, it’ll be easy to keep your cool.

Available from Walmart.com on sale for only $16.00!

Dolce & Gabbana Scarf

For those of you that are like me and can’t afford a whole wardrobe of designer items, try getting one really nice peice. Start off with this gorgeous chain and leopard print scarf from Dolce & Gabbana.

These scarves are available for only $39.99 on Overstock! That is a STEAL! If I wasn’t married, I would buy one in a second. I think my husband will lock me up if I buy anything more though!!!!!!!

You can wear a fantastic scarf like this tied around your neck, or tie it around your ponytail, use it as a bandana, or tie it on your purse to make any handbag look instantly fabulous. You can do SO many things with a great piece like this. And the chain print is so hot right now. I haven’t been able to find anything with the chain print that I can afford right now (i.e. under $10). So for any of you that are saving up your money for a fantastic little treat for yourself, buy this!
