Flannels

Red White & Blue FlannelI know we’re only halfway through July, but I saw these flannels at Tilly’s the other day and had to have them! They’re super soft, perfect to throw on with shorts in the summer, great as a light layer for cool summer nights, and will work perfect for fall & winter!

I love a good flannel whether it is just for lounging around the house, throwing on over a light top to run errands, or as an actual shirt in the fall/winter.

What’s even better is these flannels remind me of the infamous “RAILS” flannels that I always see on Instagram, but are only a quarter of the price!

I’m one of those people who is always hot (I sleep with the fan on even in the winter) so flannels are perfect for me in the winter because I just wear one with a solid tank underneath and am perfectly warm.

Blue & Red Flannel

One of the reasons I think these are so perfect is because they are the “boyfriend” style. This makes them longer, leaving more fabric to be able to tuck them into jeans, shorts, etc. and still have enough fabric to pull out and give you that relaxed effortless look.

Essie Splash of Grenadine

Essie Nail Polish in Splash of Grenadine

This nail polish has been on repeat for me this last month! It’s the perfect magenta color! It’s right in between pink and purple and goes with just about any outfit.

Vita Liberata Phenomenal 2 – 3 Week Tan Mousse

Now that summer has officially hit in my hometown (104 degrees today to be exact!! Eeek!!) the days of needing to be tan are here. I’ve tried just about every tanner out there from Sun Labs to St. Tropez to Jergens to Fake n Bake to good ol’ Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs (which I actually do recommend for when you need a quick tan just for the day since it washes right off. Medium color is best in my opinion). This summer I struck upon Vita Liberata Phenomenal 2 – 3 Week Tan Mousse in the color Medium and I’ve really been loving it. It goes on super smooth (make sure to get the mitt! I’ve been that person who’s like “I don’t need the mitt, it can’t be that important”, WELL IT IS!), has no odor, and does not leave you sticky after applying it. I could probably write an entire post about this tanner, let me know if you guys would like a full post on how I apply it and any tips & tricks I have for it =).

VS Seamless Reversible Sports Bra

Victoria’s Secret Seamless Reversible Sports Bra

I’m pretty simple when it comes to work out clothes and love a classic sports bra. Just something that holds everything in place and doesn’t get in the way of a sweaty workout. These remind me of the Champion sports bras at Target. I used to really like those sports bras but they have changed the material over the years and I’ve been in search for something similar and stumbled upon these! And to make things even better this sports bra is $20 bucks at Victoria’s Secret right now and comes in the cutest color combos AND is reversible!! You’re welcome :)

 

Factory Colorblock Peep Toe d'Orsay Flats

 

Factory Colorblock Peep Toe d’Orsay Flats

These flats are my absolute favorite for the summer! I love the peep toe because it helps to lengthen my legs & allows a fun nail polish color to peek through! They are the perfect work shoe for when I am working at my office (where I usually wear either a dress or a skirt) and easily transition for casual days (when I wear cropped jeans for errands or dinner downtown). They come in solid navy, black & nude, and black with snake print. Of course, I have them in all 3 colors I mentioned. They also have a metallic silver pair that is fun! Also, I may or may not be buying some extra pairs for next summer in case they don’t bring this style back! When I find an item that I truly love I usually buy a duplicate for the future =) Currently, everything on JCrew Factory is 50% off with the code: HOTSALE until July 5th!

JCrew Pleated Back Tee

Pleated Back Tee

This Tee is seriously the most comfortable shirt I own. It’s super soft, falls perfectly in the back thanks to the pleating, and comes in bright summer colors like bright white, speckled turquoise, and neon chartreuse. JCrew is having a Fourth of July sale until July 6th and is currently offering 30% off Full Price Styles and 40% off sale styles with the code: LONGWEEKEND .. The code makes this top $8!!

Spring Dresses

I feel like spring is all about light colors, floral prints, and soft feminine pieces. Spring time to mean always means a time for fun get togethers like baby showers and bridal showers. This time of year is such a fun time for us girls because we get to have lots of get togethers and do a little “dressing up”.

I thought it’d be fun to share some dresses and skirts I am loving for spring right now! Some of my favorite places to shop for dresses & skirts are Anthropologie, ASOS, Boden, ModCloth, and, of course, Nordstrom.  Each of these stores offer unique dresses that are not something everyone will have on. I love this because this way you lessen your chances of you and one of your girlfriend’s showing up in the same dress!

Happy Monday!

Favorite Buys: March

I thought it would be fun to share some of the things I bought in the month of March that I am absolutely loving! Here in Central California we have been experiencing some super warm days like today (90 degrees) and a few windy days along with a few (more like non-existent) rainy days.

So, with it looking like we are quickly approaching the days when warm weather is here to stay I set out to find myself a good pair of cropped jeans.

Some other items may have found there way to my doorstep ;)

Below I’m sharing some of my “favorite buys” from the month of March!

Favorite Buys: March

1969 girlfriend jeans in imperial indigo

I’ve never owned a pair of cropped jeans that were completely fitted. I was surprised by how much I really like these jeans! They’re soft, have some stretch, and are the perfect in between color of light wash & dark wash jeans.

Favorite Buys: March

Chambray Anorak in light denim

Perfect for those cool spring mornings and/or chilly nights!

Favorite Buys: March

Verona Blouse in black motif

Anything with a floral or brush stroke print is a must have for me!

Favorite Buys: March

1969 resolution slim straight skimmer jeans in barn red

Like I said above, I’ve never had a pair of fitted & cropped jeans, nor, have I ever had a pair of colored jeans! I thought these would be a good pair to try :)

Favorite Buys: March

1969 Authentic Boyfriend Jeans in tinted blackwash

Something you can always find in my closet is a few pairs of boyfriend jeans. I have yet to have a black pair, but now I do!

Favorite Buys: March

Nofrills Wedge Sandals

I’ve recently been expanding my heel selection, and these wedges were the perfect in between of a heel, yet not super tall. I, of course, had to buy 2 colors!

Favorite Buys: March

Oasis Lace Shift Dress

And to finish things off this month, I bought this blue lace shift dress. I’m contemplating wearing this to a bridal shower I have in June or a wedding I have in July.

Did you buy any clothes this month that you’re loving?

Monday Blues

Monday BluesOne of my favorite colors of the moment is navy. Last Spring Pottery Barn went all out with different rooms decorated with navy. That magazine was one of my favorites, and I’m happy to see navy is still in this coming season. So, I thought a post with my favorite navy/blue items was due. I love seeing hints of navy as an accent color in bedrooms and living rooms. What I love about navy is that you can either do accent pieces of navy (pillows, throw blankets, lamp shades/bases, or rugs) or you can have your larger details be navy (walls, couches, cabinets, or curtains). Obviously, accent pieces of navy are on the safer side, but if you’re a little more daring I love the look of dark navy walls or a couch! Some of my favorite colors to pair with navy are light blue, gold, and gray. Here’s a little inspiration of some of my favorite “navy” rooms and some items I’m loving from Pottery Barn right now.
