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 obsessed 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!

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? 🌻

Summer-Fun Patterns ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒด

Happy (almost) Sunday, readers! Today was beyond gorgeous – bright blue skies, low humidity, 88 degrees and a gleaming sun. What more can you ask for?! ๐ŸŒž

As this summer’s fashion trends have been rolling out, florals and bold colors have been HUGE! Now, don’t get me wrong, patterns and bold colors can undoubtedly be intimidating. The key to all things intimindation is confidence. If you dig the all-over, funky pattern, you rock it with confidence! Trust me, it will make every single outfit. 

I found the most fun patterned Pixie pants and shorts from Old Navy recently. 

I love these pants because you can mix a solid or a subtle pattern for the top to add a bit more sass & fun! The aloha flowers make me wish I were on vacation like no other. Also, I’m obsessed with Pixie pants in general – they’re always a perfect fit. 

Pick out your favorite: http://www.oldnavy.com/products/pixie-pants.jsp


These coral palm tree printed shorts are more than perfect. They’re long but not too long, like “mom-long.” I paired these with a white tunic from Old Navy for a casual & chic summer look. These bad boys are my new favorite shorts. ๐ŸŒด

No matter the color, no matter the pattern, always wear confidence. Life can’t be perfect, but your outfit can be. ๐ŸŽ€

What are some of your most loved summer patterns or pieces?

Until next time, Xx

Style Saturday: 5 Full-proof Ways to Always Look Put Together

We all have those mornings where we’re running behind and trying to look semi decent at the same time. Here are 5 tips to always look your best (even when you’re running a few late…)!

Cheers to the freakin’ weekend, ya’ll! *clinks mimosa glasses ๐Ÿฅ‚

So we’ve all had those mornings where we’re running – nonstop – to do the hair, sweep on some makeup & toss on an above-average outfit for the day. This is often a challenge, especially when you’re racing the clock, & oftentimes traffic, e.g. every Monday morning…

No matter your style, budget or profession, with the right set of wardrobe skills there’s no reason to not look your best & slay the day away!

Read a few quick & simple tips below:

A black everything. โฌ›๏ธ

I feel like I say this in most of my posts, but black is a closet staple. It’s always a safe bet (no matter the dress code) & it’s tough to mess it up. Pair an all black outfit with a statement necklace & you’re golden!

Wardrobe staples are key.

Keep your favorite tops, sweaters and jeans on rotation. Creating a “uniform” of sorts will save time & money. Seriously.

Offset makeup from outfit.

Don’t pair dramatic makeup with an over-the-top outfit, as it screams “it took me hours to get ready.” If you wear bold makeup, pair it with a more classic and simple look. I recommend checking out Tarte’s products, especially the Tartiest Matte Lip Paint! ๐Ÿ’„

Fashion trend: half-tuck.

Casual + effortless โœ”๏ธ (this looks fab with jeans & dress pants)

Killer heels.

fullsizerender-21A good pair of heels will always give you confidence, & they can be the statement of any outfit. ๐Ÿ‘ 

 

Do you have any tips on what you do to complete a look?! Please share!

FashionFriday: Casual Weekend Wear

Hey peeps! It’s summer, it’s Friday and life is good! I’m pretty stoked about this FashionFriday: Casual Weekend Wear!

The weekend is prime time to relax, but if you’re going out in public, you have to look fabulous (as per usual)! Here is a really fun and easy outfit to put together- it’s from a blogger I follow on Instagram- emilyanngemma. She has some beautiful outfits, posts and blogs ranging from all outfit needs.   

I’m obsessed with the casual look with a pop of color. Ripped jeans can pair perfectly with relaxed tees and casual/comfort shoes or sandals. A little clutch or side satchel completes the casual but put-together look, too!

What is your favorite weekend look?!

Until next time, Xx
