Must Have: Knit Button Down Shirts

I recently discovered LOFT’s knit button down shirts and instantly fell in love with them! They’re so soft, go with everything, and are extremely comfortable. I would classify them as a “throw on and go top” which is my FAVORITE kind of top. I love tops like this for running errands, casual Friday or Saturday at work, and to wear during the weekend. Below are my favorites from LOFT right now! And even bigger plus to these shirts is that LOFT is currently offering 50% off full priced items through tomorrow! P.S. Top row, shirt on the right, comes in 4 different colors =)

Happy Shopping!

Fall Home Favorites from Pottery Barn!

Fall has slowly been making its way into California over this past week. It has tried to rain a few times, there’s been a breeze outside, and the mornings have been nice and cool. As we get into the colder months I love seeing all the orange, rust, and brown decorations come out for Thanksgiving. Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite items to incorporate into your home for Fall!

Pottery Barn is definitely one of my favorite stores for inspiration and they never seem to disappoint around the holidays!

Gather Pillow This “gather” pillow from Pottery Barn is perfect for Thanksgiving and it was a must have for my house!

Jcrew Factory is a staple in my closet and makes up the majority of my work clothes.  I always look forward to when they release their new arrivals and at least a few items end up in my shopping bag and on their way to me every time. Here’s what I’m loving from their newest release!

July Favorites!

Every month I seem to come across new products and find myself reaching for them over and over again. July went by super fast (seems like every month does these days!) and we’re now already almost half way thru August! I feel like it’s going to be Thanksgiving before we know it! Below are a few things I’ve been loving the past month.

Frank Body Scrub

july favoritesI’ve been loving my Frank Body scrub! It smells amazing and I have been using it to prep before my spray tans, when I am self-tanning at home, or just want super smooth skin! My favorite scent is the coconut & grape seed .


Gap Jeans

July Favorites                          Resin Rinse JeansDestructed Jeans | Dark Wash Jeans (unpictured)

When looking for jeans, I always want a super crisp dark denim pair and a ripped distressed pair. Lately, it seems brands are making jeans with more and more whiskering (in all the wrong areas!) and some have flap pockets. I love good jeans that just sit on your shape and don’t add bulk.  Gap jeans are everything I have been looking for – dark denim, no flap pockets, and some distressed denim! It also doesn’t hurt that the price point on their jeans is super affordable. Last week I ordered 3 pairs and was lucky enough to have a coupon code that was able to be applied towards jeans (check the details of their coupon codes to find a coupon that is qualified to be applied on jeans).

Nail Products

Essie Nail ProductsApricot Cuticle Oil – I have super dry hands, and with that I have dry cuticles & nails.  I’ve been using this oil at night before I moisturize my hands and can really tell a difference! Smells great too!

Grow Stronger Base Coat – As I said earlier, my nails are dry, and my fingernails easily break. This is not only a base coat that works great for when you want to paint your nails, but it also helps your nails to grow stronger with Vitamin E and minerals that are formulated into the polish.

Nail Polish – Fiji by Essie is my all time favorite color! I have the lovely southern belle Emily Maynard to thank for that one. Some of my other favorites are Bachelorette Bash (pictured above), Cute as a ButtonLollipop, Where’s my Chauffeur, and Sand Tropez.

Dry Fast Top Coat – I’ve used this top coat for years! It dries super fast, lasts a long time, and gives your nail great shine.

Quick-E Drying Drops – These drops quickly dry & seal your nails after your top coat, and add an extra coat of shine to them while drying them super fast!
