Casual Look: Halter Sweater

How classy is this halter top sweater?! It’s stunning in person. A little heavier knit, but still soft and stretchy. You guys know I more often than not purchase tops, and jeans even, that I can wear both in and out of workplace. However, this top caught my eye online and I knew it would be perfect for summer evenings out to dinner. And of course I had to pair with my new favorite block heel sandals (still on sale!). This halter sweater is also 40% off today!

Sizing: Sweater and jeans fits TTS.  I went with petite sizing in the sweater.

Casual Outfit: Summer Romper

If you’re looking for a lightweight, comfortable pool coverup or the easiest outfit you can throw on this summer, look no further! I found this easy peasy romper on Amazon and felt like I hit a jackpot! I wore it all day today and stayed so comfortable in the oven we call Florida (I’m still wearing it as I write this blog post at 9 pm 😝). There are 19 different color/style options available – not all are the same ‘type’, some have spaghetti straps (adjustable), some have buttons in the front and are sleeveless and not a tank top. I added the black/white striped version to my wish list!

Sizing: I ordered my regular size. Since I went with the tank top version, the straps are not adjustable. I usually require petite sizing and felt going up one size would make the top portion too large. I think I made the right choice. I could have went with a larger size on the bottom if I had a longer torso, but as long as the romper doesn’t shrink in the wash my regular size fits perfectly. It does say to hand wash on Amazon’s website and I would recommend an air-dry.

Casual Look: Striped Cardigan

This cardigan is just too much fun! Currently 40% off and 11 color options available (many are solid colors in case the stripes are too much for you!). I honestly had a hard time picking between which striped version I liked more – I went with this one only because of the merlot/burgundy & marigold colors mixed in – I figured it will pair nicely this fall with my darker skirts and pants for work.

My jeans are also on great sale – love the fringe detail at the bottom! A trendy option, but worth it on sale. Both cardigan and denim fit TTS. I’m wearing petite sizing in the denim.

Casual: Striped Tie Knot Tee

I’ve had this striped tie-knot tee for years and while I sell quite a few of my clothes on Poshmark once the style is older or I’ve replaced with a newer option – this is one of those tops I can’t let go of! I just happened to come across a near identical version on Amazon Prime for $10-16 (depends on size/color) – and comes in 25 (I said 25!) color/print options! It has 4 out of 5 stars with almost 600 reviews – I’d say that’s pretty good for the price! I added the red/stripe option to my cart! Loving Amazon Prime finds lately! ❤️

Weekend #ootd

Just a cute & trendy ringer tee from Amazon Prime! Perfect for the weekend and casual days. And only $16! That’s the best part. 🙂 I went with my normal size (small). Reviews suggested it runs big, but my normal size fit perfectly.

Casual Outfit: Eyelet Top

Since moving to Florida a few years ago, I’ve taken a on a new appreciation for lightweight tops and jeans that don’t ‘stick’ when you put them on after showering – ha! The heat and humidity has finally started to cook up down south, so I mainly wear tanks and shorts at home, light weight tops and skirts at work, with the occasional chino or lightweight denim.

And when I say denim.. usually only white jeans! 😝 So I apologize if my blog becomes ‘white jeans, work skirt, white jeans, work skirt’ lol – I think I need to break out of my comfort zone apparently! That all said, I wanted to show you a new favorite lightweight top!  This beautiful eyelet top is only $29, comes in 12 color options! 12! I’m wearing the pink carnation color.

Nordstrom recommends going down one size (I’m wearing an XS) and I think it has the perfect fit. It’s swingy enough you can easily do a half-tuck like shown, tuck in to a tie-waist skirt or shorts, or even tie knot over jeans shorts.

Casual Look: Summer Dress

Well, hi friends! So after my blog post yesterday about our new addition Reid, I feel refreshed and ready to take things on again. He was such a good boy yesterday also! Since I brought Reid home just over a week ago, I’ve only had one day off work to spend with him. It was my husband’s light work week, but my heavy work week (60 hours) and he got way more bonding time then I did. However, I spent the entire day with him on Monday and sucked up all the puppy kisses! I also taught him “come” and “sit” – so that was fun! We’ve been working mostly on behavior during walks and to ignore other dogs and creating a positive environment. He was so good yesterday. Proud rescue mom here!

That all said, I’m ready to get back to talking about style! Today’s casual outfit isn’t an original outfit creation or groundbreaking trend, just an easy summer dress that you can throw on any day of the week! Since we are in full summer-mode in Florida already, I’m always on the hunt for lightweight and easy.

My dress is only $14.99 and comes in 4 color options. I love the blue color also! I had picked up this cute bag already and loved how it was styled together with this dress on Target’s website. So, why not do the same?!

😁 Check out the earrings also – only $10! #targetforthewin

My bag is a crossbody with removable straps. I love the tortoise shell ring handle and it’s the perfect size to fit all your necessities. The bag also comes in an awesome printed pattern in a completely different look!

Casual Outfit: Embroidered Tank

I’ve been on a total J.Crew kick lately! Every other day they seem to have a good sale (30-50% off) and their items have been priced better than the Factory store! This embroidered tank is another new arrival ~ I fell in love with this rich rustic mahogany color (also comes in 3 other color options). The straps are not adjustable, but thankfully it didn’t matter on my short frame. It does seem to run a tad large in the bodice area. However, it’s 100% cotton, so I’m expecting it to shrink and the fit will be perfect thereafter (I’m wearing a size small). I would say if you are not busty then go down one size. I love how this color matches perfectly with leopard and white also! ❤️
