Sweet Salt Clothing

I love to support local companies. Especially when they sell clothes. Since I have gone back to work part time and I feel like I need new clothes for work I was thrilled to have another online clothing company brought to my attention. Sweet Salt Clothing sells modest and fashionable clothing. 


I loved scrolling through their many pages of options. hey have tops, sweaters, skirts, scarves, and more. They had a lot to choose from, however, don't make the same mistake I did when you first take a look. The first time I looked through the first page of options this is what I saw:


When I saw that the last row didn't have the same amount of options as the first few rows I assumed that, that was all there was to choose from. When I took a second look I noticed the bar at the bottom where the arrow is pointing. It is really light and I obviously didn't notice it at first. Once I did I was surprised with plenty of pages to view and decide.  So don't think you have hit the last page of clothes, there should more pages to view.

It took me a few days to decide on the perfect outfit. Not only did I want just the right thing, but I knew I would be showing it off to all of you. One issue I often have with my height is length when it comes to skirts. I can wear some maxi skirts as dresses, and some knee length skirts to my calves. I loved that this website had length in inches on them. Which ultimately helped me when I couldn't make up my mind between 2 skirts. I asked if the lengths were accurate regardless of size, and they said yes. Maybe a few skirts on the largest sizes would be slightly off, but otherwise they should be accurate (mine was, and yes I measured it.)




Another thing I loved was their return/exchange policy. Also because of my size I feel like I am between 2 sizes and I ordered the wrong size on this cute peter pan top. When I got my shipment in the mail it came with a return slip so I did't have to pay to exchange it. I just wrote down on the slip I wanted a different size and quickly got the correct one mailed back to me. It did come back with another slip to mail it back if needed, fortunately I didn't need it. You can check out their fabulous Quality Guarantee



In the end this is what I got. I love this peter pan top, because the sleeves are a little longer and not the girly cap sleeves. My hair covered up some of the detailing on the top, but you can see it better in the above picture.  I almost chose a cute polka dot skirt till I saw this one last minute. I saw this skirt on someone else recently and fell madly in love with it. Only I knew if I came across it, it would be way too long for me and I would have no hope in hemming it. So when I saw it would be the perfect length I couldn't resist. I added a chunky black belt and some black ballet slippers. Perfect for a day at the office, church or a date with my husband. 

Another thing they have that I couldn't resist are cute little girl shrugs. I don't have a picture yet cause I am saving them as gifts for my girls, but they have some as low as $2.99! I just noticed today they had some cute plain raspberry or black cardigans for  $3.99 as well, so go check out their cardigans for your daughters. A black sweater is a must in any girls closet if you ask me.

They have their spring cleaning sale going on right now too! Plus till the end of March you can use the code queenofchaos15  to save an extra 15% off any regular priced items!

New Boots

I was playing that game where you have to come up with things you have never done and then those that have done it switch places. I wrote in more details how to play here. When it was my turn to come up with something I had never done it hit me- I have never worn boots over leggings or skinny jeans. Not that I was against it, it was that all the boots I had weren't meant for that look. After much flack from many neighborhood women I decided to call my friend to fix the problem ASAP.
 
Sure enough I went to my friend the owner of Silver Apple Boutique and she helped me solve the problem. These were the ones I picked, the outlaw boots in brown. I love them! Now I have been shopping for more things to go with my brown boots, just so I can wear them. I even wear them with the teal high low skirt I got from there.

I am thinking about getting these cute gray ones as well? What do you think? I like the buckle, but she has other cropped gray boots too. I can't decide, I just want them all.

She always has cute maxi skirts and sweaters. She has tons of leggings and necklaces too.
 
Leggings are the big trend right now. Silver Apple Boutique has a sale on some of their winter leggings. They also have girls leggings right now too. I need to het some for my girls. They love dresses, but it's too cold to wear just that. maybe we can compromise if they wear leggings with them.

The best part is that you can save 10% on your whole order. Plus they have free shipping right now too. Go browse through some of their fabulous stuff. Just use the code Queen10
 
Happy shopping.

Summers "Maxi"mum Best Trend

I love the maxi skirt trend so much right now, I can't get enough of them. Especially with winter around the corner I want to stock up. I love long skirts for "Forgot to shave my legs days," or days that are too cold. With the trend growing I feel like some places are SO overpriced! I just can't spend $50 on a skirt, that is outrageous! Luckily I know someone with better prices. My friend owns Silver Apple Boutique. She went to China last year to do some research and opened earlier this year. She has cute dresses, skirts, necklaces and shirts. The best part is that she has them for so much cheaper than anywhere else.

When we went to California the new high-low skirts were everywhere. I came back wanting one, especially for beach and swim wear. Silver Apple Boutique has tons of cute colors and they are perfect for fall. The black ones are great because they can go with so much. Plus you can dress them up with a nice pair of heels, or dress them down for an easy day with flip flops.

I asked what her most popular item was and she said her chevron prints, hands down. Plus I love all the mint and coral colors. That is why I love this maxi dress, it's the best of both worlds! I could wear it with my mint green cardigan I wore in my above picture.


She often gets asked, "How do you match with all these fun bright skirts?"  Easy, not matching is very in. You can throw together so many different colors together and they work great. Here is a great article on color blocking. It has a color wheel to help you see how so many different things go together. The article clearly states clashing is OK and very popular!
 
These plain colored maxi's are great for lots of patterned or colored tops. I'm a cardigan girl myself, so this fall I will be rocking this with a bright lace yellow cardigan, or maybe even red and orange, who knows?
 
Another popular thing that I love is the Aztec/tribal prints. When I saw she had this one I texted her to save me one because I knew they would go fast! Isn't it cute?
 
 
 
So jump on the maxi skirt band wagon, and stock up. Silver Apple Boutique not only has the best prices, but is constantly getting new things in. Follow Silver Apple Boutique's facebook page for updates, products and giveaways.

Week 3- Maxi Love


I LOVE the maxi's that are so popular right now. I am trying to stock up while I can. Just like Bootz Inc, said they are so easy to dress up or down. One of my favorites is this ombre purple one I got from Sexy Modest Boutique. I wear it with white tops, black tops and even a mint cardigan. I've worn it on "I didn't shave my legs days," "laundry days,"  or even to nice business luncheons. I may need to buy another in case my first one gets ruined ;)
 
 
I am so short I have a hard time with maxi dresses. Maxi skirts on the other hand are easy, I can just fold over the top to get the right length. I could hem them but I'm to lazy for that. Right now maxi skirts are everywhere! Although the more cute ones in my size always go fast, so I recommend just splurging if you come across one you love that fits.

 
They are so comfortable as well. I love lounging in one or it makes sitting through a boring meeting that much more comfy. So keep your eyes open or go on a hunt for the perfect maxi for you!
