Navy / Weekend Wear

Happy Sunday, babes! โ˜•๏ธ Itโ€™s finally feeling like the cool, crisp autumn weโ€™ve been waiting for ๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒž PRAISE!

With this change in weather comes a shift in wardrobe. On a brief side note: I feel as though my taste in clothing has altered so much since graduating from college. Now, I search for staple pieces that can be worn in the office and out with the girls or my boyfriend at night. With that, Iโ€™m all about the sweaters, long or fitted, blanket scarves, plaid or solids and all the warm, dark fall colors! ๐Ÿค—

I recently found this killer navy, double-peplum sweatshirt from Banana Republic. Iโ€™m obsessed! Itโ€™s pairs perfectly with these knee-ripped, high low hem jeans from Target, plus (throwback!) these gold mules by Franco Sarto (I found this pair at Mashallโ€™s). Hi, yes! Iโ€™m over-the-moon-in-love with mules this season! Theyโ€™re different, fun, casual & super easy for any outfit. You need to get a pair. Or five. ๐Ÿ˜‰

What is your go-to weekend wear? Are there any colors or patterns youโ€™re excited to rock this season?! Iโ€™d love to hear! ๐Ÿ˜€

Thanks for reading!

Falling for (Fall) Florals

Hi hi, readers! ๐ŸŒž๐Ÿ‚ My favorite time of year is here, where the air smells of sea salt & maple everything, PSLs are all the rave & warm, dark florals are so in! ๐ŸŒป

Aside from my obsessions with fall-scented candles & PSLs, I swoon over Target’s fall clothing pieces. Every. Single. Time! One of their newer lines, Who What Wear, is prime.

The bubble sleeves, the auburn florals & the pinstripes, SAY WHAAAT?! Yes. All in one. You need to check out this bubble sleeve shirt. No joke!

I love pieces that can easily transition from work to casual. Those are the pieces that build a staple wardrobe to can carry on for seasons. Pair this with a pair of navy pants and cognac heels, you’re set from 9-5. Switch it up for after hours with destroyed denim, a statement necklace & brown leather ankle booties.

Alright all! What is your favorite fall fashion piece/style/pattern? How do you rock it?! I’d love to hear! ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒพ

Thanks for reading – Xx

Sweet Little Somethings

Hi there, HELLO! Happy Tuesday, readers! Let me just start off by gabbing about this absolutely gorgeous summer weather today – like all sun & cool breezes 😁🌞 that's what I'm talking about, Ohio!

I feel as though embroidery was HUGE when I was in grade school! I remember the "hip" embroidered, bootcut jeans and jean jackets like it was yesterday. Low & behold, embroidery is making a bold comeback!

My newest find is this jaw-dropping button down with gorgeous embroidered florals. The details in the stitches and the dainty bell sleeves flow so naturally. This top is so sweet. 🌸🌼 To top it off, you can find this at Target, babes!

My favorite part of this is the fact that the buttons are hidden with an over-layer – simple but adds a bit of class, & this blouse can be worn for business casual or out-&-about on a Saturday! I love dual-purpose pieces. & I LOVE the pattern underneath the flowers – mixing texture & colors. 😉

What "sweet little somethings" clothing piece are you over-the-moon about?! Feel free to share!

Special shoutout to one of my colleagues, Mai, for making me the adorable origami fashion pieces!

Summer Must Haves

Hello, hello, and happy Friday-eve, everyone! โœจ Ahh, I hope you all enjoyed the Summer Solstice this week, especially as the toasty temps are hitting hard already! Like HEY, what’s up, hello, summer! ๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒž

Along with welcoming the change in season, I did my typical wardrobe shopping binge (I say binge but I seriously only jump on the deals. I mean you have to)! A new season is the reason for new clothes ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป right, ladies?!

A couple of my faves so far have been this short sleeve cozy tee in oatmeal from A&F! 

It hits right at the waist, so not too long and not too short. This warm oatmeal shade is truly neutral so it can be paired with nearly every color and pattern! It’s also a prime staple piece. ๐ŸŒธ 

While it’s a super casual top that’s seriously so cozy, I jazzed it up for the office with a triple strand of pearls – seriously, if you’re ever on the hunt for costume jewelry, scavenge estate sales or garage sales in your area – super eclectic and fun! 

The next buy was a pair of dv Bailey Slide sandals from the one and only, Target! ๐Ÿ‘ก๐Ÿ‘ก

I love these because they’re dressy but not over the top crazy. They have a kitty cork wedge to add just a bit of height, too! These bad boys look stellar with skinny black dress pants and destroyed denim jeans – so basically perfect for the office and the weekend. It’s a win win. 

What are some of your top summer buys for your wardrobe? Is there an essential you feel every girl should have?! ๐Ÿ‘—๐Ÿ‘›

Sweater (+ Blazer) Weather

Good morning, readers and happy Thursday! Fall is slowly but surely becoming my favorite season on the account of cozy and layered looks. 

Earlier this week I tested out a relaxed cowl-neck sweater from A&F with a casual navy blazer (a staple for any wardrobe!). Next time I’d like to add a fun necklace to add some color!

 

Sweater + Blazer mix
 
I love mixing different textures, even as solids. It was the perfect amount of sassy texture around the neck to not be a distraction.

Are there any fun and cozy pieces you like to pair together?!

Until next time, Xx

Fall Wish List

Hello bloggers!

Even though we’re still feeling the wrath of the muggy summer heat, autumn is right around the corner! It wasn’t until college that I learned to embrace and love fall and all it has to offer, from warm, oversized sweaters to fun leather booties and the most beloved, Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.

I’ve compiled a collection of fall must-haves to inspire fun, chic outfits for the upcoming easy, breezy weather from places like Etsy, A&F, Macy’s, Express, H&M, Target, L.L. Bean and of course, Starbucks.

Fall Wish List
Fall Wish List

I love fall for one sole fashion reason: layers. Layers can be a blast– but do what looks best for you! Since I stand around 5’3″, long, oversized sweaters don’t always work for me… I look like I’m wearing a colored sack. However,ย I love pairing neutral sweaters with a top with a design/texture or pop of color. This year, I’m obsess with higher necklines, including scoops, to easily pair with nearly any sweater or leather jacket, and a statement necklace… or even a simple charm necklace. Side note: sometimes I wish the things I picture in my head to buy, would just magically appear in stores when I go shopping– wouldn’t that be heaven?!

So now, what are some of your favorite fall fashion pieces in your wardrobe?!

Until next time, Xx

MakeupMonday: Personal Look

HAPPY TUESDAY! As promised, I tried the classic makeup look I posted yesterday from Wander Beauty: light eye shadow, black eyeliner and rosy/maroon lips! Excuse the lighting of the photo- I took it in the Women’s bathroom at work and it turned out pretty harsh regardless… 

  

Products I used: Naked 3, a mix of Strange and Limit; Elf black liquid liner (normally I would spend more than $3 on eyeliner, but I love this stuff and it lasts quite a while!); Maybelline Blissful Berry lipstick (darker if you apply a decent amount, and lighter as the day wears on.)

What are some of your fav products for a similar, classic look?

Until next time, Xx
