Fall-like Weekend-wear

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? 🌻

Thanks for reading!

Summer Must Haves

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 πŸ’πŸ» 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. 🌸 

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! πŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘

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?! πŸ‘—πŸ‘›

Style Saturday: Work Outfit + What I Focus On

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! πŸ’•βœ¨

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:

  • Solid, neutrals
  • Bold statement necklace

Cheetah pumps: Target; Tulle beige top: LC from Kohl’s; Black pants: NY&Co; Necklace & belt: Target

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. VoilΓ ! 

Simple details.

What is your typical work outfit? Do you focus on one piece or have a specific go-to?! I want to hear!!

Until next time, Xx

Style Saturday: My Closet

Oh my lanta, it’s the freakin’ weekend! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜‰ BUT it’s 24 degrees, which calls for major sweater/blanket sweater weather. Can we actually survive 6 more weeks of this?! ❄️
So despite the chilly winter weather, my closet comes to the rescue! 

Staples are key.
I’m all about staying warm, comfy & fashionable. With that, I stick with staples. Staples & neutrals. Mixing the two together can easily make wild and different outfits that you can wear time & time again! And I’m all about the sweaters: long, short, bulky & light. 

Now, let’s talk blanket scarves. They can be worn as a scarf while outside or even as an accessory! And you can twist and fold them so many different ways. Like hello, LOVE!! Even with blanket scarves, I try to pick neutral colors that can be worn with all different outfits!

Ponchos are fab. They add warmth & style to any look. Black, grey & cream are my favorite colors: prime for pairing statement jewelry. ✨

Blanket scarves, ponchos & hats… OH MY!
Side note: this gorgeous wardrobe saved my wardrobe, curtsey of a dear friend of mine. I recommend a wardrobe if your tight on space or are looking for a statement piece to utilize. 

So what’s in your wardrobe?! What pieces do you stay warm with? Let’s hear!!

Until next time, Xx
