Good evening, readers! 🌛 This weekend's weather has been perfect so far – not too steamy, just enough sun yesterday & just the right amount of clouds & cool breezes today. Talk about early autumn weather!! 🍂🌾
With the slow change in weather comes a transition of wardrobe. Now don't get me wrong, sometimes this shift is tough to gauge because summer temps can linger into the late fall. Denim is a great staple for these fluctuations, & grey is an easy neutral for nearly any outfit!
I paired this off the shoulder, striped, flowy top with dark denim jeans & Merona pearl sandals. Add a statement necklace & in all set. Plus, how can any girl turn down pearls, even costume pearls??
A few things that I'm obsessing over: – the sleeves on this top are split all the way up & adds so much flare – the jeans are a high-low hem – perfect for shorter females like me so they get right at the ankle 😉 – the pearl sandals are Steve Madden dupes! – all these pieces (excluding the pearls) are from Target! Seriously, my holy grail. I found the pearl slide sandals on a blogger's Instagram, looked a bit more into them and found that Steve Madden sells them for nearly triple the price at Target. AND they're so comfy! I 12/10 recommend you check them out – also sold in black!
What is your favorite not-quite-but-almost-fall-weekend-look?! What pieces are staples as you start rolling out the new wardrobe? 🌻
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!
Hi, & happy Sunday (fun-day) all! Talk about a gorgeous weeknight after a week full of wild storms – the rain was quite cleansing. 🌞🌼
If you’re like me, whenever you hear the word brunch, your heart stops & skips a beat. But really. Especially Sunday morning brunch because it’s the best way to start the last day of the weekend (or that’s what I keep telling myself). 😉
With brunch must also come the perfect outfit. I’m a fan of mixing textures and patterns to bring my personality into my outfits – I encourage that for all of you, too!
Today I paired this vintage-esque jean vest (Old Navy, via Goodwill a few years ago) with these bold floral shorts (Old Navy, this season)! 🌸🌸🌸 I love a good pattern. Speaking of, I have them in Pixie Pants, too!
AND I found these KILLER ballerina flats in a creamy nude at Target! They add a bit of flare to any outfit. I also added a cognac belt and three-tier beaded necklace. Super comfy and incredibly “me.” Remember, life isn’t perfect, but your outfit can be. 😉💖
The tote is actually REVERSIBLE (GH Bass & Co.)! So the inside is a warm cognac color. It’s great to carry as a catch all, too!
Do you have a favorite brunch or weekend outfit for this summa weather?! I’d love to hear!
Hello, hello, and happy Friday-eve, everyone! ✨ 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! 🌞🌞🌞
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 💁🏻 right, ladies?!
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. 🌸
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!
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?! 👗👛
Happy Saturday, readers! Ok, was it just me or was this week nearly the longest week ever?! I guess the time change still has me like 😴…. BUT, it’s the weekend so time to enjoy some “you” time! 💕✨
So once the weekend zooms on by and Monday morning comes around, do you ever rack your mind of what to wear? I definitely do (actually, every day). I try to focus on a couple things when I put together a typica work outfit:
Bold statement necklace
This is one of my latest favorites! I’ve always been obsessed with tulle – chic and just enough feminine. Black pants are an easy go-to, and I popped the outfit with cheetah print heels and a jeweled necklace. The cognac belt ties the neutrals and pattern all together. Voilà!
What is your typical work outfit? Do you focus on one piece or have a specific go-to?! I want to hear!!
Hello & happy Satur-YAY, readers! BLESS UP for a little relaxation & self-care after a long week. ✨💕
Despite the dropping temps here in Ohio, I for one am so ready for spring! I mean pastels, florals & patterns for days… all of my current wardrobe obsessions are definitely springing into spring…
I fell in love with this Vine Mixed Media Sweater T. It’s almost like a basic in the front with a party around back – HEEEYY! The sheer floral back is gathered, almost like a high peplum, & the navy shade is to die for.
Bonuses: it’s a high-low top – so hi, yes, perfect to tuck in in the front, & there’s baby pink hues in the florals. Navy & light pink together are gorg, always. 🌸
Next is this beautiful Henley top with bell sleeves, which are make a HUUGE comeback (yay)! The top’s textured pinstripes and buttons are paired perfectly, too. Plus, who doesn’t look good in baby blue?!
A gray blazer is a must. I wear this all year round & it’s definitely been one of my best wardrobe purchases. It’s the perfect staple to dress / sass-up any outfit!
OH MY LANTA! When I came across these fab floral pumps, I think my heart skipped a beat. So I went for the gold! Seldomely do you see wild, fun & colorfully patterned heels, & these can easily be a pop for any basic outfit. 🌸😍
What pieces are you OBSESSED with for spring?! What pattern/color is a must for you?
It’s Satur-yay! 🌼🌞 the weather here is gorgeous. I feel like spring fever is upon us…
I love getting dressed up as much as the next girl, but when it comes to the weekend I go for casual and comfort. Leggings and neutrals are usually my go-tos!
For all things comfort, I paired this light and chic Simply Vera jacket with LuLaRoe black leggings, grey GH Bass Oxfords and simple gold jewelry. + I feel like I blend in with nature – super neutrals, right?! 😉
AND let me just talk about this Vera jacket. It sinches in the inside and seemlesslu accentuates my waiste which elongates zee legs. The large front pockets are perfect to throw things in and the hood. No words. Shoutouts to Kohls! ❤
Oh my. The Oxfords! I recommend these for anyone and everyone. They’re so cute paired with skinny dress pants (I.e. Old Navy’s Pixie pants), jeans and leggings; they’re so versatile and comfy. I chose they grey with a subtle but pop of color, peach bottoms – just adds some feminism! You can find your perfect pair on GH Bass online.
So what do you wear for your weekends when you’re out and about?! Do you go for comfort or a bit more dressy?
