Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! This weekend is supposed to be absolutely beautiful weather-wise, so we’ll be spending it outdoors playing with our little ones, and hopefully sneaking in a few dinners al fresco style!

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites” for you!

ONE
Vince Camuto Balloon Blouse

Vince Top

This top is so chic, and would be gorgeous dressed up, or perfect with distressed jeans & a cute pair of leopard flats. It comes in 3 colors.

TWO
 J.Crew Ruffle Houndstooth Skirt

j.crew houndstooth skirtFunny story, I wore a black & white houndstooth skirt on the first date with my husband (many moons ago & it fits & is still in my closet..haha!), and this one has caught my eye because of that sentimental reason! Love the ruffles! It would be so pretty with sweaters, blouses, etc in the Fall!

THREE
NEST Candle

nest pumpkin chai candle
We’ve started decorating our house for Fall, and this candle is perfect for in our kitchen! I love having a candle burning while I cook/bake!

FOUR
Tory Burch Love Relentlessly 

TB ParfumThis is my new favorite scent! This rollerball size is the perfect way to try a new scent & is great for carrying in your handbag!

This is a great “transitional” outfit into Fall. Especially on days when we get those chilly mornings, that quickly heat up around lunch time here in the South. I found this pretty, lace blouse at Target, and I fell in love with the bell sleeves & detail. I also like this one, and this one, too. These jeans have been on repeat, and will continue to be into the Fall/Winter months. I love the undone hem for something new, and they’re so comfortable with the higher waist.
This Stadium coat has been redesigned year after year, by J.Crew, because it’s just that good. It’s so warm, but what I like best about this coat is that it’s available in all of the happiest, brightest colors. Who doesn’t want to be “cheery” in the cooler months? I know, I definitely do! Right now, I’m eyeing the pink one (it’s currently on sale!). I bought this “mint” one two years ago, and wear it year after year, so it’s totally worth the investment. It adds just the right “pop” of color that you crave in the cooler months, especially to a neutral outfit like I’m wearing in this post.

Have a happy day, Friends!

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile now, then you know that I love anything with a bow. That’s why when I saw this sweater, I snagged it on sale last Spring. I felt like it took forever to get marked down.  This, this and this are also so cute for similar looks. The bows are such a fun surprise to what looks like an ordinary top/sweater from the front! This sweater is very lightweight, and could be styled year round, even on a cool, Summer evening out. I paired it with crisp, white denim for this look, but you can totally dress it up or down, depending on where you’re headed.

Have a happy day!

Even though I was raised in the South, there’s nothing I love more in my closet than a pair of crisp, white pants to wear during the Fall/Winter! The options are endless when it comes to putting together outfits like this one. I also love layering my Summer tops into the Fall with cardigans/sweaters, but especially a tailored blazer. I truly believe you can never go wrong with a classic navy blazer, as it takes any outfit up a notch. It took me years to find the perfect navy blazer, as I’m extremely picky. This one and this one are very similar options to the one I’m wearing. This might be my favorite outfit post to date because it combines a little bit of everything I love!

Do you like to wear white pants after Labor Day too?

The weather has been a little insane due to the hurricanes, and please know that all those in the path of these hurricanes are in my thoughts and prayers.

Have a happy day!

This outfit is definitely one of my favorites to throw on when I’m short on time for a date night or a Moms night out! You can never go wrong with a silk blouse, skinny jeans & a great pair of heels. I love the majority of polka dot prints, and this silk top was so cute! The bow ties on the shoulders are unexpected & feminine. In my opinion, you can never have too many bows in your closet. I’m thinking of adding this one next. You can easily wear this outfit in the Fall, by just adding a blazer or classic cardigan like this or this one!
These jeans are perfect for chasing your little ones during the day, but you can totally dress them up as well. On a side note, they do run on the small side, so I would go up one size. I love the “whiskered” wash for something new. My favorite finishing touch to this outfit? The shoes, of course! I fell in love with these pom pom heels during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and have them in 2 colors. I don’t wear heels during the day (#momlife), but I definitely wear them every chance I get for a night out!

Dreaming of Fall

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

By this point in the Summer, I’m pretty much dreaming of Fall, every.single.day. I’m almost the reverse of many, and I hibernate during these hot, hot months. I love to be outside, but I really don’t like to sweat unless I’m actually in workout clothes & working out. Anyway, as you can tell from this post that I’m already mentally changing my closet to Fall, even if the temperatures outside don’t match. Only 30 days to go!

Here’s what I’m dreaming of adding to my closet this Fall!

Happy Shopping!

Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday, Friends! I hope that your week was a fun one, and you’re ready for a fun weekend ahead! We returned from a long weekend late Monday evening, and I feel like I’ve been playing catch up all week long with laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning, etc. I finally feel like everything’s back to normal now. I’m a creature of habit (aren’t we all?), and being back into “our routine” is such a good feeling! To say I’m looking forward to this weekend is an understatement!

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites” for you!

ONE
five minute journal
I recently purchased this book, and I highly recommend it.

TWO

blue camisole
This top is so versatile, you’ll literally be wearing this now, and then under blazers, sweaters and cardigans through Fall/Winter. It’s what I would call my “four season” top.

THREE
Clare V. Snow Leopard Clutch

This clutch is on the top of my “wish list” for Fall. So ready for the cool, crisp days ahead!

FOUR
Kate Spade Pearl Earrings
These earrings are so pretty (& happy!), and would be a fun addition to any outfit for a date night or girls night out!

A Classic Look

If I had to pick just one foolproof outfit in my closet it would be wearing “classic black” from head to toe. When I worked in Marketing, it was one of my favorite outfits to wear. Besides the fact that it makes you look slimmer, it’s timeless & incredibly chic, on everyone. The best part, in my opinion, is that you can wear whatever accessories you want with it, and it always looks amazing, year round. You just can’t go wrong, am I right?
These skinny pants from J.Crew are a must-have in your closet. I bought this top last year from Loft, but this & this are super cute, and this one is just perfect for Fall. This sweater, and this top are on the top of my wish list right now. Oh, and these sandals look like my favorite Loeffler Randall designer (a girl can dream, right?!), but are much more budget-friendly in my book. I bought this handbag during the Nordstrom sale, and it was sold out, but is restocked now (yay!), and is yet another dupe of one of my favorite designer looks/handbags, Givenchy.
So, if you had to choose, what’s your favorite foolproof outfit in your closet?

School may be right around the corner (which typically makes me only want to think about Fall, no matter how old I get), and Summer is still hot, literally, so that’s why these pants are the right pick for attempting to beat the heat. I love my skinny pants & jeans; however, these wide leg, cropped pants fit the bill when I need to hit the refresh button. They’re on sale, and an alternative to shorts, which I rarely wear anymore. These and these are also great options to choose from, if you like this cropped/wide leg style as much as I do.
I bought this classic top from Loft during a Spring sale, but there are so many great look-alikes out there, like this, this and this one! This one is embroidered, and a great deal to wear now, & put in your closet for next year, too! These kinds of tops are perfect “no-brainer” tops to wear with pretty much everything in your closet.

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! We’ve had a great, but extremely busy week this week, hence being short on posts. I hope that you’re just as excited to see Friday here as I am! Do you have big plans for the weekend? With only a few more weeks of “summer” left, we’re planning on doing more “summer stuff” with the little ones. I still can’t believe school starts soon! This Summer has flown by for us, how about you?

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites” for you!

I picked this wine up at Target on a whim, and I’m glad that I did. My husband & I loved it on our “patio dates” this week. It’s the perfect Summer wine.

The farmer’s market produce is SO much better than the grocery stores! We’ve been enjoying ours all week long. What’s your favorite place to buy produce? I can’t wait to go back this weekend, and I love supporting our local farmers.

UGG Cozy Lounge Poncho

UGG Poncho
Maybe it’s because Summer is coming to a close, and I’m really starting to crave Fall, but this poncho looks so perfect for Fall/Winter, school drop-off, tailgating, errands & playing in the backyard with the kids. It comes in 3 colors, too.

Have a happy weekend!
