Now that the hustle and bustle of the holiday season is behind us, January is set to easy mode. Time to reload and refresh. The new year brings its own set of challenges but getting ready doesn’t have to be one of them. Especially during these back to work weeks post holidays… ugh. As we get back to the grind I needed to make things easy.

I picked up a few easy, go with everything pieces from the new Avon Go Easy Capsule collection, including this 4 pack Tee Shirt set, go with everything lucite earrings and a winter soft colored handbag to switch out of my holiday bag.  All these items are go-with-everything kind of pieces that make getting ready super easy.

For my easy back to work look I paired the cream tee with some pinstripe pull on pants (Express) and a lilac cardigan (Target and on Clearance).  Super comfortable and casual but still put together, easy for transitioning back to work.  To make things even easier I wore my flat riding boots (DSW but these ones from the collection are getting FAB reviews).

For jewelry lately I’ve been reaching for super simple go with everything easy pieces.  These Avon Modern Shapes Earrings are still interesting but so easy to wear, and look great paired with my go-to Cosmic Constellation Necklace (in Leo) and friendship bracelet (in and out of the eBoutique).

Word of Alicia:  I’m kinda over the moon about these Avon Modern Zen tee’s.  They come in 4 must have shades, cream, black, navy and slate purple which are super cool and on trend.  Excellent layering pieces with a longer line so you can wear them a lot of ways.  They can be dressed up or down or even for the gym.  Just something WELL worth your money.  I’m also over the moon about the Cosmic Constellation Necklace, it seriously is my everyday and just SO PRETTY.  Can layer it with other necklaces or wear a lone, can be casual, business, fun, you name it.  Definitely easy pieces and work with my look and will work with so many looks, so good they needed and extra call out.

Fall Boots That Don’t Break The Bank

Here’s the #1 reason I love boots so much:  I’m always cold.  Boots keep you warmer than sandals so boots it is!  Besides the fact that they are super cute, usually more comfy than most the other shoes I own and practical for pretty much every occasion, I usually am wearing boots because I’m cold.  Now that the cat’s out of the bag here are my top picks topping my fall wish list:

 

1.  Ridding Boots – Even though I’ve wanted them for years I’ve yet to own a pair of riding boots.  They might not be as trendy as they were say 2-3 years ago, but the classic style is a staple everyone should have in their boot arsenal, especially for walking and activities.  My #1 pick are the mark. Go For A Ride Boots which are part of the Fall Sale for ONLY $45 (orig $60)!  Coming in 2nd place are the LC Conrad Riding Boots for Kohls $59.99 (orig $99).

2.  Lace Up Boots – In the 6th grade I had these lace up boots that were imitation Timbs (Timberlands for the urban impaired) that I wore with slouch socks or these socks from Limited Too that had a daisy on them that matched my daisy print shorts also from Limited Too.  I think that was my favorite outfit to date (is that sad I peaked in 6th grade haha)  So I think it’s been long enough that it’s time to add in some lace up boots back into my wardrobe…. however, still on the search for daisy print shorts.

3.  Booties – I definitely already own quite a few pairs of booties, BUT they’re the most practical to wear with work outfits to nights out to casual wear.  I’m swooning over the mark. Multi-Mixed Media Booties also in the Fall Sale for ONLY $48 (orig $65).  That’s a great price for genuine leather and suede, and will practically go with every outfit I own!  Plus, I also need a fun oxford type bootie like these blush and lace ones from DSW.

4.  Tall Dressy Boots – Ok so this is pretty much what my entire boot collection is made of.  So what!  I like tall boots and tall heels!  But my current old go to from Shoedazzle are on their last legs and I need to replace them.  I want a tall black boot with some fun detail like the gold zipper  and gold heels on these mark. Mixed Details Tall Boot $90 (launching 10/31/14).  Now $90 is a little on the high end and they definitely aren’t walk all day boots but I can’t stop thinking about them!!!  So added to the wish list…
