Weekend Style: Navy & Coral

I wore this to church today (with a cardigan, not pictured). My sister gave me this dress earlier this Spring and it is very versatile. I love the back cutout and can be work appropriate as well with a cardigan. I also love the pop of coral with the clutch.
We tried taking pictures in the backyard today. Not a pretty back drop! We'll move back to the front yard tomorrow.

Blazer and Boyfriends

Intermission

So, I thought now would be a great time to introduce myself. I am Katherine, a fairly new, fashion blogger. I have loved fashion since very little, like most fashion bloggers have. I still have drawings of all the different clothes I would design at 7-8 years of age. Fast forward to now, I am a pharmaceutical sales rep, and I get to experience with fashion, without being in the fashion industry. I'm not in an office setting, mainly making sales calls to different doctor's offices, so you will see that I do add a lot of bright color to my outfits.
My purpose for doing this blog? I want to document fashion as it evolves, but at the same time, make it very budget friendly. I do not believe fashion should override giving, savings, etc. Those will always come first, and then I give myself a budget every month. Many years ago, I just spent carelessly. There are a few big items that were bought before we had our son (my diamond earrings, my movado watch). Now, my husband and I carefully go over our budget together, and most of the time I will have $100-$150 to spent on clothing a month. If I want a big item, I have to save for it with my alloted amount. And, my wonderful twin sister has a much bigger clothing budget than I do and I'm lucky to borrow some of her clothes/ accesories as well! Love u sis!
At the same time, we are working on becoming debt free so this is a very generous amount in my eyes. I will start a monthly wish list and spending amounts to make sure I stay true to my goals for this blog: Budget-friendly and fabously fashionable styles! Here is my first introduction.
I forgot to add, why JAG STYLE? Honestly, my son's initials! So, please follow me on this journey and would love feedback from all of you!
