Winter Style Round-up

Hello and thank you for visiting. I am so glad you are here. My readers are so important to me which is why I want you to know the links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


Style round-up time. If you are not following me on Instagram, you have to run over there and follow me for lots of outfit pics and fun giveaways.

Of course I always save a few outfits exclusively for the blog. And what I mean by that, is I don’t have time to post everyday on Instagram so this is a good way to play catch up and show you some looks you haven’t seen before at the same time. (Just being honest)

I love looking back at all the great styles I came up with from my closet over the past few months, but it almost makes me sad that I won’t be able to wear them again because spring is around the corner. I love the color mint and teal and I wear it a lotblue, teal, mint modest outfit ideas for fall and winterI am going to share 9 different looks featuring this lovely color today, even though when I look back at just the outfit pictures I took (because, shockingly I sometimes get dressed and leave the house without taking a photo of it) I probably wore blue about10 more times than I will show you hear.

One of my favorite pieces I found this fall that I did not get to wear enough because South Carolina just doesn’t have too many cold days (not complaining( is this great striped sweater I found at Ross Dress for Less.

blue and black striped aztec print sweater with black pencil denim pencil skirt and bootsLayered it with a long sleeve blue tee shirt and my favorite black denim pencil skirt from  Old Navy. Made it super casual and comfy by adding black leggings and sweater boots from Nine West.

blue and black striped aztec print sweater with black pencil denim pencil skirt and boots modest outfit ideaThese fun sunglasses were left behind at some store in Columbia when I took my children to visit the local zoo and I haven’t seen them since. I foolishly asked my 4 year old to hold them and then forgot she had them, by the time I remembered it was too late to go back. Perks of motherhood I suppose.

I loved the little added detail of wearing this Aztec patterned beaded headband from Claire’s, and of course a black statement necklace went perfectly.

navy cardigan and mint pleated skirt modest outfit idea for fall, winter with taupe bootsNext is another layered look, I love this navy blue cardigan so much, and there are so many great ways to wear it, but I couldn’t wait to mix it with this mint pleated skirt from Amazon.

Only $25 you can purchase this fabulous pleated skirt through this link if you love it as much as I do. This mint color is no longer available, but there are several other colors available including leopard, which I think may need to come live in my closet. I thought it was pretty true to size (xl is a 16/18 etc).

navy blue and mint pleated skirt modest outfit idea for fall with taupe bootsSo I have been loving these taupe boots from the Jennifer Lopez collection at Kohl’s anytime I wear something white this winter. I don’t actually have too much tan or khaki but I think these would go great with these colors also. These boots always make me feel fabulous and put together. For like ten seconds when I check my look in the mirror, then I go back into mom mode. haha

modest black and white polka dot rain boots lookFor an easy rainy day look I pulled out my polka dot rain boots from Shoe Carnival and added some boot socks. This super affordable heart patterned top is from Walmart, and is a great mix of light blue and gray which is a great color mix.

gray and blue heart patterned tee with black and white polka dot rain boots modest outfit ideaThis pencil skirt is an easy slip on style from Old Navy. Found on the clearance rack when searching for a particular pencil skirt at Old Navy that it felt like all my friends were getting. Of course when I finally go to Old Navy it turned out that the skirts were out in the styles that I wanted, but I lucked out anyway finding this great gray skirt for only $8,

An easy side braid to keep my hair together in the humidity, a chunky necklace, and a gray headband to finish off the whole look.

mint ribbed sweater and gray pencil skirt with herringbone vest modest outfit ideaSticking with the mint and gray color scheme, this may be one of my favorite combos from this winter. I found this mint ribbed long sleeve tee shirt at Rue21 for only $5.

Layered my mint tee with this gorgeous herringbone vest from Groopdealz. I really love Groopdealz because they have amazing prices and boutique styles that you can’t find in stores.

mint and herringbone modest outfit idea with bootsThe vest runs a little bit small, but Groopdealz is really great about having very accurate descriptions, and measurements listed for each of their pieces, and they always give a good estimate of how long shipping will take. So just like whenever you order online, be careful of the little details because Groopdealz doesn’t have a brick and mortar location to return to.

Wore a silver bohemian style necklace I purchased for less than $4 from Ebay. I saw a very similar style necklace at World Market that I can’t help but stop by and visit every time I’m in there, but at $40, I’m really pleased with my Ebay version.

mint and black leopart modest fall outfit ideaOh how I love wearing mint, I think we all have certain colors that we’re drawn too. For me I just try to make sure that I do indeed buy colors. I think a lot of us ladies will just constantly wear black if we don’t remind ourselves to buy colors when we are out and about.

This mint and leopard print sleeve top is another great deal from Rue21. Styled this fabulous top with a comfy a-line black skirt from Loft Outlet, and black leather ankle boots from Maruice’s.

black leopard sleeves and mint top with black maxi skirt modest outfit ideaStyled this great top again on a warmer day with a little more curl in my hair and some darker lips.

This time I paired it with a simple black maxi skirt and my bow front flats from Shoe Carnival.

black leopard sleeves and mint #rue21 top with black maxi skirtAdded a silver bib necklace which is also from Ebay. Each season I usually purhchase all the clothes for my family (budget permitting) over the course of 3 or 4 consecutive weekends. That way it is still fresh in my mind what pieces I am trying to get match up and I don’t have to spend 12 weeks shopping for clothes. After I have the majority of the pieces I pick out all the perfect necklaces on Ebay and spend about $20 all at once on jewelry and I’m usually set for the season. Really can’t beat the prices, the shipping time is quite long, but it is worth it to me.

navy and green plaid button up with denim skirt, mint vest and cognac boots, modest outfitI can’t be the only one who gravitates towards the same stores over and over again. This vest is also from Groopdealz. I was desperately hoping to find a mint colored vest while I was out shopping this fall, but the only one I happened across was $150!

It was gorgeous, but I have 6 people to clothe so I left it behind and hoped to find a better deal another day. Groopdealz never disappoints, they sold these vest a few times for less than $30.  I let the deal come and go once before grabbing it the second time t was available on the site.

navy and green plaid button up with denim skirt, mint vest and cognac boots, modest outfit ideaThis navy and green plaid button up is a Walmart find. I do most of my grocery shopping at Walmart so occasionally I try to stop over in the clothing department and see what they have their. I find some great pieces at Walmart so checking the clothing is a lot of fun.

This denim skirt is from Cato Fashions, and something I probably bought two winters ago. I prefer the dark wash denim and so far this skirt has held up wonderfully.

I wear this mint necklace quite a lot and can never remember where it is from, although I know I’ve seen a similar one at Target. The boots are also from Groopdealz cause they really have the best prices.

green, mint, and navy layered fall or winter modest outfit ideaThis last look basically came together like this. I was thinking I have this really great green necklace that I wore a few times in the warmer months and now that it is winter I wished I had a green sweater to wear it with, but I did not.

I thought to myself, if I did have a green sweater I would most likely want to wear said sweater over a patterned button up shirt, and then add the necklace. Well being the middle of the winter season, I wasn’t going to head all the way out to the outlet mall or the regular mall just to fine two tops. So (you know what happens next) next time I was at Walmart I found both of these great tops.

green plaid button up, mint sweater, and navy statement necklace layered fall or winter modest outfit ideaOf course the day I took these outfit pictures I was wearing this layered bib necklace from Burke’s Outlet, but I really did wear it with the green necklace several times.

blue, teal, mint modest outfit ideas for fall and winterNine outfits of blues and mints and greens. I loved them all and I hope you did as well. As the cold weather comes to an end (inevitably, right?) here in SC I am going to be posting more winter round-ups so stay tuned.

Thanks for stopping by, please feel free to pin any looks you love here or share this blog with a friend. Appreciate your support; until next time!
