Flatlay: Ribbed Tie-Knot Tank

Do you guys remember the tie knot thermal top that Target released earlier this year during winter/early spring months?! (on the blog here and here) – I love that top! I was so excited when I happened to come across the same top in a tank top version for the summer! Woo-hoo! It comes in 4 colors and $15. Now, it does fit a little big if you are chesty. I purchased my normal size and was “oh, hello!” in the mirror! 😂 I exchanged for one size smaller and fits much better. I’m short waisted, so comfortable in whatever shorts and jeans I throw on, but if you have a longer waist it’s probably best fitted with high waisted jeans/shorts.

Flatlay: Embroidered Top

Would you believe this top is from Old Navy?! It’s gorgeous!… and on clearance! There is an all white version also if black isn’t for you. Sizing is limited, so check your local stores! I paired the top with fun red bauble earrings so my neck wasn’t busy, but I think a simple necklace and earrings is just fine also. I picked out my black sandals on bottom, but I think cognac would look great too!

Other items on my wish list from Old Navy:

neckerchief ~ I would wear these as a bracelet instead! Love so many of these prints!

chino pants for work ~ beautiful fall transition colors!

pintuck top ~ Old Navy is killing it lately with the details!

Flatlay: Waffle Knit Tank

🚨Amazon Prime find alert! 🚨

I love that Amazon is like a whole untapped market for affordable, trendy, and quality clothing. As much as I love my box stores like LOFT and J.Crew, I secretly love that Amazon Prime is like a small secret and you can wear a dupe of something more expensive, or even better – wear something that no one else has! This waffle knit tank is just another one of those fun finds. Perfect for summer casual days. Layer it in the fall. 11 color options. And under $20.

I’m not sure how much women’s fashions are included on Prime Day, but it’s coming soon – July 15th! I’ll definitely make a post of my favorites if they are included!

Flatlay: Olive Stripes + White Scallops

Hi friends! Happy weekend! Well, it’s almost over already and went by way too fast! It’s been a busy work week (and a stressful one to boot for those that know where I work… good news is, I made the cut and still have a job!…. for now…😌).

I haven’t had a lot of time to shop the past couple of weeks, so I’ve been trying to incorporate older items into my closet using the latest color palettes and trends. This mustard color has been incredibly popular for the last 2 months. While usually more of a fall color, I love that it blends so well with darker hues in the summer months.

My exact top and belt are old from Target, but there are many olive striped top and belt options available to create a similar look. Another idea would be to use mustard sandals (like these) and a cognac belt (option).

Outfit details and options below, but I also found out some great sale items also!

Flatlay: A Bundle of Basics

As much as I love vibrant colors, graphics, and that outfit that makes you feel really good ~ I also love my basics. Now, I don’t think olive skinny jeans and a striped peplum are that basic. Could be a plain white tee and jeans (nothing wrong with that either!), but I have a few things in my closet that I wear frequently and just work well together. I’m so happy I found these olive skinny jeans – awhile back I had posted (I think last fall?) about my futile effort to find a nice pair of olive denim. Well, Old Navy to the rescue! (Always!) And anyway, some days when I’m attempting to coordinate outfits in my closet, I just reach for the basics. Throw them all together. And wallah – just a good outfit!

My exact tee is almost sold out, but there are so many great basic striped tees and tanks available right now from the same brand:

Flatlay: Eyelet Tee + Denim Skirt

Rounding out the weekend with this cutie eyelet tee again! Wear it out untucked, tie it in the front, or do a half front-tuck – I love its versatility and how it pairs with so many things in my closet. Only $29 and 11 color options! My skirt is currently on super sale for $24! (Free 2 day shipping with a Shop Runner account).

Sizing: I purchased my regular size in the eyelet tee for this brand (I go down one size) and normal petite size for the skirt.

Flatlay: Twist Hem Tee

Happy weekend friends! It’s Saturday evening and I’m just finally sitting down for the first time since Thursday to take a look at the blog. My husband and I have been enjoying the days we’ve had off work together recently. Usually we only have 2 or 3 days free per month and June we took some extra vacation days. We didn’t travel anywhere special; we’ve mostly been doting on our new puppy and putting in some extra training and cuddle time! I’m definitely okay with that. 🙂

I just wanted to share a perfect casual weekend outfit. During the summer months, I usually wear shorts when I’m off work for the day or maybe for running quick errands, and jeans when we go out to eat at night (because I freeze in the air conditioning haha). I’ve always been a fan of twist hem tees since they became a trend a few years ago. I still have 2 of the original bp twist hem tees from Nordstrom that were so popular the last few years. Since they are a cheaper brand, they don’t look as good as they did originally after so many washes. I really wanted to invest in a nicer brand that would hold up since apparently this trend is hanging on strong! I love that they are so easy to pair with shorts and jeans, under a long cardigan, and with about any footwear.

This tee is my first Sanctuary brand investment. The brand usually has very good reviews and a lot of their tops and tees come in multiple color options. I went with white for this tee as it pairs with any color jeans or shorts in my closet, but it comes in other beautiful colors. I have a couple tees on my wish list now like this tiered hem tee and check out this tie-knot tee ~ the ‘pumpkin’ color has given me heart eyes for fall!

Sizing: Tee and jeans fits TTS.

Flatlay: Graphic Tee + Scallop Shorts

Another day, another graphic tee! I love a good graphic tee year round, but especially in the summer. They are comfortable to wear, and you can pair them with anything from jeans and shorts to work pants and skirts (workplace permitting). And how fun are cheetahs?! Or leopards, or panthers, or whatever you want to call them. ☺️

Also – my sunglasses are only $16 and my favorite! I have them in mauve and black – good quality and definitely worth the price!

Sizing: Tee and shorts fit TTS.
