Today, I’m sharing a few of my necessities for the perfect “Casual Friday” outfit. Lately, this has been my go to outfit and I felt like I had to share it with you guys! I have the JCrew d’Orsay flats in 4 different colors (saddle & black, navy, striped, & snake print, the Reid jeans are super soft making them extremely comfortable, and the Gap Gwen top (which I also have in stipe and love) is a must have because it’s the perfect length. Of course, I can’t forget the statement necklaces. I own all three of these necklaces and LOVE every single one of them! They go with so many different outfits and totally complete the look. Anthropologie is hands down one of my favorite places for statement necklaces! I’m always on the look out for statement necklaces and Anthropologie usually always has something I like. Another reason I love this outfit is it’s not only perfect for work, but also is great for weekend brunch, shopping with the girls, or a casual dinner. Do any of you have a go to outfit? Share pleaseeee :)
It’s that time of month again! JCrew Factory has new arrivals coming soon! I woke up to an email yesterday morning giving me early access to the new arrivals. Today, I’m sharing my favorites.Tweed Sleeve Tee | Short-Sleeve Printed Shirt Dress | Small Jewelry Tray | Pleated Mini Skirt in Fresh Raspberry | Pleated Mini Skirt in Electric Red | Flannel Shirt | Flared Skirt in Tweed | Sawyer Sweater in Warm Mineral | Printed Drapey Henley Tunic in Porcelain Green | Squared-Bottom Sunglasses | Sawyer Sweater in Wildflower Pink | Paisley Trouser Socks
I know it’s only mid-August, but I’m already getting excited for the warm Fall colors & soft fabrics that come with this time of year. The Sawyer sweater comes in a ton of colors and I’m sure I will be buying one of every color! It looks like the perfect sweater to wear to work with skirts, out to dinner with jeans & heels, or on a cool Saturday morning with flats. I also love JCrew factory’s socks. They’re super soft & come in fun patterns like the paisley ones I posted above. The pleated mini skirt is also another favorite of mine! I currently only have the skirt in black, and just recently discovered it again and am completely in love! Be sure to check out JCrew Factory’s newest arrivals while they are currently 30% off!!
I 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.
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.
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.
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 =).
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!
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!!
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!
