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.

Flatlay: Sweater Tee + Denim Skirt

I love a good denim skirt, I love a good sweater tee, so why not pair the two together?! This marigold color is hot, hot, hot this season! I originally planned to style this sweater tee with the linen striped skirt from yesterday’s flatlay, but decided I wanted to pair it with these earrings instead and use a darker palette.  I’m thinking seersucker shorts or pants (check out these pants for work!) would look awesome also! And should trend right into fall. LOFT has a “New & Now” sale currently ~ 50% off skirts/dresses and 40% off almost everything else!

Sizing: Both sweater & denim skirt fit TTS. Marigold sizing does not have petite available, but order petite in other colors if that’s your normal size; it does fit a little longer. I didn’t mind the fit since I either front tuck into pants or tuck in completely to skirts most of the time.

Flatlay: Summer Fridays

Another cute tee alert! Love styling these graphic tees with midi skirts this summer! I’ve said this before, but about every shade of blue and yellow has drawn me in this season. Front tie-knots are a hot styling tip this year as well, and perfect for a more relaxed look at say a summer gathering or casual party. I initially had this flatlay styled with my white Vans sneakers, but I’ve worn them to work quite a bit lately and they were getting a little grundgy. I wiped them down with a wet paper towel not thinking they would have water spots all over them until they dry! So, 2nd pick were these woven mules – and honestly like both looks equally. 🙂

Right now J.Crew Factory has their “stock-up” sale and up to 40% off if you buy 4 items or more!

Sizing: Order your regular size in the graphic tee for a front-tuck or ‘wear left out’ look – order a size up for the perfect front tie-knot (I would also size up if you have a longer torso, these tees seem to run a bit shorter than previous seasons). Skirt fits TTS, but more fitted in the waist then I expected. If you are curvy on bottom like me (carry your weight in the hips an bum lol), I would maybe order a size up. I haven’t decided if I want to exchange or keep my regular size. I was surprised the length didn’t bother me at all either, even though it’s listed as “midi” – it’s longer then my other striped midi skirt from J.Crew Factory, but honestly I think it can look nice on all shapes and sizes for many people.

Flatlay: Summer Tweed Skirt

LOFT is having a great sale right now ~ all sale items are an extra 40% off! I picked up this skirt and a couple of summer sweaters at a great price! I love a structured tweed skirt for work. The material is nice all year long, kind of like merino wool, it helps to ward off the chill from outside or inside from the air conditioning.

I also picked up this sweater tee in marigold, striped dolman sweater, and this button striped sweater that is currently 50% off! If you are looking for a basic shell to go under cardigans, I highly recommend LOFT’s henley shell. You can always find them in basic colors and about every floral pattern you can think of! Also, if you’re a cardholder, today kicks off cardmembers appreciation month and 40% full-price items!

Ann Taylor also has 60% off sale items + an extra 15% for cardholders! That includes this white denim skirt and belted skirt I’ve featured on the blog recently ~ both great pieces for a summer work wardrobe!

Flatlay: Aloha Tee + Midi Skirt

Channeling a little summer fun in this outfit! Thinking cookouts and outdoor parties, or maybe just wear this to work and I switch the sandals for flats and throw a cardigan over the tee? 😆 Either way, love a good graphic tee in the summer. I used to pair them all the time with pencil skirts when I dressed up more for work – now more-so with jeans and shorts, but still love having a little fun with the skirts I still have in my closet!

*size tip: Skirt and tee fit TTS. Go up one size in tee for the perfect tie-knot or half tuck look!

Flatlay: Chambray Skirt

Styling this cute eyelet tee again, today with another item in my closet I saw made a comeback! This chambray skirt has been another closet favorite for the last few years and LOFT brought it back this season to their outlet store! The version they have featured maybe looks a tad lighter shade? But otherwise identical. I’ve found I really like tying this tee in a knot more-so then a front tuck. I actually wore it to work today tied in front with skinny denim, white sneakers, and liked that look also!

Flatlay: Embroidered Tank

The last time I styled this mahogany colored tank top was with white jeans and leopard accessories – today I decided to darken it up a bit with more of a transition look for late summer. I like both! I fell in love with these block sandals a couple months ago and waited and waited for them to finally go on sale – and now need to style them! They work best with dresses and jumpsuits for a semi-dressy summer look, but my lifestyle is a little more laid back. I love the way they look with distressed denim and a nice top also.

sizing: I purchased my regular size in the tank top, but it does run slightly large. I recommend going down one size or wearing a bralette underneath. Sandals fit TTS.

Flatlay: Poppy & Leopard

Leopard is still going strong right into the summer months, so I’ve been trying to find ways to incorporate it into my wardrobe without going over the top (because let’s be real…we all go over the top leopard in the fall, right?! 😉) I love, love a good poppy red color in the summer and find that it pairs really well with leopard! So, here we are.
