#OOTD Weekly Roundup

Hi friends! Working a 12 hour shift today, so just popping in to share some outfits from work this past week ~ I hope you had a great one!

Outfit #1:

*side note: my top is short-sleeve ~ I purchased in store, so I guess Florida has a different version from online? The same top in long sleeves is linked below.

Chambray Shirt: 4 Ways

Hi guys! Today’s blog post is all about chambray! I sold my only chambray shirt a couple years ago – it was actually from J.Crew (non-factory), and I always hated it. It was stiff, kind of scratchy, and had this strange western vibe lol. I finally replaced it with this Old Navy tried and true, been around forever, season after season, version! I don’t know what took me so long, maybe because chambray was really beaten into the blogger outfits years ago? Well, I’m feeling it again and it’s certainly had a refresh in the latest outfits popping up, so I thought I’d give styling it a try with current trends! And don’t mind my co-worker… he starts out chewing on his bone, then decides I’m boring and falls fast asleep by outfit #2, and then jumps up on the bed and starts snoring by outfit #4. 😂

Old Navy chambray shirt

Outfit #1:

Jean on jean. This combination has been around for quite awhile and I love the fresh vibe using leopard accessories. A leopard belt would work also. You could also wear a darker chambray shirt (here) and a light wash jean as well.

Outfit #2:

Chambray + patterned skirt. My exact skirt is old, but about any pattern would work! Think of chambray as a neutral. You can find the newest version of my skirt here.

skirt options: here, here, here | shoes (old): option

Outfit #3:

Colored jeans + printed shoes. I switched out the leopard for snakeskin here, but either would work! Also, any pair of colored jeans are an option – olive, mauve, marigold, you name it!

jeans (old): burgundy option, lots of color here | mules (old): great option here

Outfit #4:

This outfit is for all my Florida girls! Wear the chambray and beat the heat. 😎 Another jean on jean look, but wearing a printed tee underneath for a pop of interest.

Old Navy chambray shirt, J.Crew artist tee, AE denim shorts, Steve Madden sandals

tee: J.Crew | shorts: AE | sandals (old): newest option

And last but not least – my sleepy co-worker who couldn’t even wake up for a photo op!

I hope this blog post helped you guys have a renewed interest in chambray with your own closet! Let me know what outfit combinations are your favorite this year. 💗

Fall Flatlays

Hi guys! I wanted to round up and share a few flatlays I’ve posted on Instagram! I’ve picked up a few new items that will transition you right into fall, and some are older pieces I’ve re-created new ideas based on inspiration photos I’ve seen lately. Hopefully you are enjoying all the new color combinations and prints available this year – I know I am! 💕

A New Plaid:

This is one of my new favorite tops!  I just love the cobalt blue/burgundy combination. A perfect transition piece, especially since it’s a linen-blend and perfect for the heat still! My clutch color is old, but I’ll link the same clutch in new colors – and also a similar clutch in the burgundy color.

Old Navy plaid tank, Expres jeans, Trask mules, Sole Society clutch, Kendra Scott necklace

top: Old Navy | jeans: Express | mules (my color is sold out): Trask

 necklace: Kendra Scott | clutch: Sole Society (similar option here)

Camo Sweater:

I first saw this camo sweater in store and fell in love. I just love the camo print matched with the white stripes. It has a wide neck, so you can wear it off-shoulder or somewhat on (which is how I would style it). The texture, fit, and colors are the prefect mix. I also had a little fun and mixed the camo with my new favorite snakeskin bag — love it!

Express camo sweater, AE jeans, Steve Madden greece sandals, A New Day bag

sweater: Express | jeans: AE (old) – option | bag: Target

sandals: Steve Madden | earrings: Amazon

Fall Neutrals:

I saw this rust cardigan in store in recently and instantly fell in love with the color. I have this same style of cardigan in 4-5 other colors – it’s by far my most worn cardigan to work. I’m always freezing, and since this is longer it keeps me extra warm even though it’s lightweight itself. It’s been sold out online for awhile, but the same color is made in a different style (linked below). My top is older, but I’ll link a leopard top I love ever more that would also match perfectly with this rust color.

cardigan: Target (other option here) | top: Target (old) – love this option

jeans: Express | earrings: Amazon | booties: Vince Camuto

A Fresh Gingham Style:

I’m always on the hunt for new ways to style this gingham shirt that I’ve owned for years, and is still available! That’s when you know you’ve got a good closet staple. I recently saw a J.Crew catalog ad featuring a similar shirt, blue blazer, and light colored jeans. They used silver shoes which was a bit much for me, so I switched out for a white mule – and added the leopard necklace, because, well – duh. 😆

shirt: J.Crew | jeans: Old Navy | necklace: J.Crew Factory

mules: Target (old) – very similar | cardigan: Old Navy (old) – option, option

Another Leopard Tee:

Alright, I know, I know. Another leopard tee you ask? Well, yeah. I mean… this one is different! It’s gray and black – so, definitely required for my closet. 😉 Now I need to find ways to style it! What do you think of the olive jacket? My exact jacket is old, but I found a very similar option with the raw hem!

tee: Old Navy | jeans: Joe’s (old) – very similar | jacket: Nordstrom (old) – option, option

sandals: Sam Edelman | earrings: Kendra Scott

Leopard, Marigold, & Black:

Based on another catalog photo, this time from Sole Society, I loved the way they matched a leopard top with a marigold bag and black accessories! I pulled out an old leopard top of my own to re-create the look. I used a denim that has a slight gray cast to pull in the black booties more easily. Everything in this photo is older (I found one link for my booties, almost sold out), but I found near identical pieces you can use to re-create the same look yourself. LOFT has a very similar print available now also.

top: LOFT (old) – option, option, option | jeans: Vigoss (old) – option, option

bag: Sole Society (old) – option, option | booties: Sole Society (new version here)

Just Because:

Every fall I have the itch to create a flatlay or outfit with olive jeans and a ton of neutral accessories. You might recognize the white tee from earlier this summer. I created a similar outfit with the same jeans and sandals. Basically you just up the ante for a fall look and add some layering pieces.

When It’s Still Hot: Fall Transition

Alright ya’ll, I’m getting really excited for fall clothes over here! But… it’s still 110 degrees outside. Boo. However, when the temps are still high and you start to see the jewel-tone colors released and start thinking fall, just work with your closet a little! The biggest thing with fall transition when it’s still hot out, is of course wearing lightweight material, but also using white or a light tone as your base. When I think of true fall colors, I want to wear an olive top with black jeans and booties, or say more of a merlot color with dark denim. Keep thinking olive and merlot… but with a lighter base to match. And you can still throw in a small dose of leopard and snakeskin to stay trendy.

Below I created 4 summer friendly outfits using my favorite fall transition colors (merlot, rust, olive, marigold… or a variation there of ha).  Hope your week is going well!

Fall Transition Outfits

Outfit #1:

I fell in love with this sweater tank in store before it even available online. It’s long and perfect for skinny pants or jeans. I’ve already styled it with distressed denim and open toe booties as well. It’s incredibly soft, only $15, and comes in 3 color options. Fits TTS.

OUTFIT DETAILS:

Outfit #2:

One of my new favorite colors is this rust color ~ almost pumpkin! I paired a rust striped tee with this fall cardigan and summer denim skirt for a summer-friendly and fall-coloring inspired outfit. Paired with a turquoise necklace and leopard shoes and you have a great fall transition outfit.

Outfit #3:

These rompers I tell ya, are one of my favorite summer purchases from Amazon (I also have this one in navy blue)! They are incredibly casual, but serve their purpose for a casual summer look that involves anything outside. I wore this romper the other night to dinner at the beach and brought my jacket for the sea breeze that kicks up when the storms roll in. Otherwise it’s perfect as a swimsuit coverup or anything outside basically!

OUTFIT DETAILS:

Outfit #4:

Disclaimer: my top is old. I know, stinks ~ it’s like several years old. But I love it so much it never makes it to the Poshmark pile and I don’t think it will anytime soon unless I grow some more (it is a little tight in the armpit area ha!). However, I thought to wear it because LOFT just released their latest version and I’m in love with the new lace tank just as much as this one! The new tank is a different type of lace – more traditional, but also more versatile. My tank isn’t great for tucking into skirts and such, whereas the new version appears more streamlined and can be worn tucked in or out.

Mustard and marigold are always top choices for fall. There are about 15 variations of the same color, but they all work the same in my opinion and pair well with a lot of color combinations. I paired my tank with white denim to keep summer alive and a simple berry colored pendant necklace to bring in fall with the marigold color.

Instagram Lately: July 2019 Part II

Hi guys! I hope you had a good weekend!  Mine was pretty relaxing. I had a series of long work shifts back to back this past week and come Friday I was exhausted. I basically hibernated the last 3 days aside from a few errands, and also ran to our local mall to scope out some new arrivals! I mostly do all of my shopping online, but it’s sometimes nice to run in store and see things in person. Check out the flatlay below of my new snakeskin print Target bag! I’m in love! And only $35. That was my big purchase for my shopping trip. 😆

Instagram Lately: July 2019

Hi guys! So, this week’s blogging was a little old school. I’ve been trying to push all my outfits on the blog at the time of creation on to all platforms at once. However, it gets overwhelming when I’m working long hours. I have so many outfit ideas, I’ll wear a work outfit and then change later into a casual outfit (or vice versa), and then I have flatlays – I’m a mess! 😂 So anyway, here’s what you missed on Instagram this week! Lots of #ootd photos and flatlays. Hope your week is wrapping up okay!

Catch Up Post

Hi friends! Today I wanted to share a few outfits that I took maybe a month ago? Maybe longer? And never made it to the blog and/or Instagram. I did post the outfit below with the rust tank to the blog and not Insta – (original post here with more sizing details). The others were archived on my phone and figured it was time for a catch-up post!

Outfit #1:

Original post here. See post for sizing details.

J.Crew Embroidered Tank, AE legging white denim, Sam Edelman leopard sandals, A New Day woven straw bag, Sugarfix by Baublebar earrings

tank: J.Crew | jeans: AE | sandals: Sam Edelman

 bag: Target (old) – option | earrings: Target | bracelet: Kate Spade

Outfit #2:

My striped midi skirt from the last, oh I dunno 2 or 3 years?! is back in stock! It’s been a closet favorite of mine for quite a while. The elastic waist allows for all the good days… and bad (food) days. 😁 My color is navy blue/white, but also now comes in a black/white striped option! I linked my cardigan below – the exact color is old, but both the green and peach colors would work to create the same type of look! If you are looking for a similar turquoise cardigan, Land’s End has a nice cotton cardigan similar to mine that comes in a very similar color here.

skirt: J.Crew Factory | cardigan: J.Crew Factory (similar option) | top: Old Navy

necklace: J.Crew Factory | flats: Kate Spade (old) – love this option! | bracelet: J.Crew Factory

Outfit #3:

Guys, I freeeeeze to death at work, my technicians make it so cold! Like Alaska. I always joke I’m going to turn the air back so it at least feels like Colorado lol. So on days I’m outnumbered with the air conditioning, I opt for a boyfriend cardigan and pants. Chinos are my favorite thing to wear in the summer and I couldn’t say no to more stripes! These chinos are a version of my other favorite work pant – the Old Navy Pixie!

Instagram Lately

Hi everyone! I’m posting a late Tuesday night Instagram Lately update – been a little behind (as always) this week. Our dog, Eddie, had another surgery on Friday and so between husband and I we’ve been babysitting and making sure he gets the best care he can possibly get while recovering. The surgery was removal of a cancerous mass on his side and opposite cheek, so this surgery has been a little more rough than the last one in December (removal of a mass on his leg) since it’s uncomfortable for him to sleep. And if ya’ll have never brought home a dog recovering from anesthesia, you are lucky LOL! The first night is always the best. 🙂 Thankfully we all survived the weekend, his pain seems to be at minimal and he’s sleeping much better. However, my fried little brain had to work all weekend and come yesterday I didn’t know if I could dress myself for the day, let alone blog about it! 😂

I figured I’d kick the week off with Instagram pictures and finish it off with some mirror photos documenting some outfits I’ve worn lately! I hope you all have a fantastic week! ❤️

Current Sales:

  • LOFTFriends & Family sale! 40% off your purchase with code FRIENDS
  • Nordstrom: Spring sale through April 22nd!
  • Old Navy: 20% off your purchase (no code needed)
  • Target: BOGO 50% off shoes!

Outfit #1:

Although we are having warm summer days already, our nights can be cool. I love having a thermal top like this that’s weekend and evening ready to throw on and head out the door! It’s currently on sale for $19 and comes in 4 color options.

A New Day tie knot thermal top, Old Navy white denim, LOFT loafers

top: Target | shorts: Old Navy | bag: Sole Society (my version is older)

loafers: LOFT (old) – option | earrings: Kendra Scott

Outfit #2:

I wore this scallop top with white denim the other day on the blog, however it’s so easy to dress up also! I love that gingham pants are so popular right now and this top paired really well them. My exact top is almost sold out, but check out this new arrival from Old Navy – almost the exact same color and beautiful detail!

Old Navy gingham pants, &.layered scallop blouse, Kate Spade Nicole flats

top: Nordstrom (almost sold out) – beautiful option | gingham pants: Old Navy

belt (old): option | flats: Kate Spade (old) – option | bag: Rebecca Minkoff (old) – option

Outfit #3:

I love when stores come out with newer versions of an old favorite! My skirt really isn’t that old, from this past late winter season/early spring, and LOFT re-released it in the same pattern but with a cute button detail! I loved it paired in the ad photo with a plain white tee, so I followed suit in a short sleeve sweater.

LOFT fringe skirt, LOFT short sleeve sweater top

skirt: LOFT | sweater: LOFT (mine is older)

flats: Kate Spade (exact are old) – newer version | necklace: Target

Outfit #4:

Sometimes you just gotta wear a festive floral shirt to work. Easy, comfortable, and a no-brainer to wear.

Express floral portofino shirt, AE jeans, white skinny belt, white loafers

top: Express | jeans: AE | belt (old): option | loafers: ALDO

Outfit #5:

Love, love, love this tie back tank! Such a great early summer release! I purchased my normal size because I want to keep the back closed and not loose, but if you are longer waisted I would go up one size. Since I’m shorter, I can tie the top a little higher up and tighter without feeling weird since I’m a midget. 😝 Also, it comes in a ton of color options!

J.Crew tie back tank top, AE denim shorts, Steve Madden Porter Slide Sandals

top: J.Crew | shorts: AE | bag: Sole Society (old) – option

sandals: Steve Madden  | earrings: Baublebar (old) – option

  Outfit #6:

This linen tank top was hands down on my favorite items last summer! I somehow put a small hole in mine (probably from wearing it every single day lol), and had to throw it away. I was ecstatic when Banana re-released it and in a ton of different colors! Solids and stripes.

sizing: So, here’s the deal with sizing on this top. Last year I purchased a regular XS, but I felt like it shrunk to be just a little tighter than I liked. This year I went with a regular S, I’ve already washed it once, and would say it shrunk a tiny bit, but not as much as last year so that’s good. It’s 100% linen. I would say you could go either way with sizing. I’m only 5’2″ and felt like regular sizing was fine. It was a little long on me but in that comfy oversized way.

top: Banana Republic | shorts: Old Navy | sandals: Old Navy

earrings: Sugarfix (old) – option | clutch: Steve Madden (old) – option

Outfit #7:

Just another great linen option for spring! I think this week was the ‘linen’ week! 😂 The ruffle back comes just to the top of my denim in the back (no skin showing). Comes in several color options and fits TTS.

Instagram Lately

Hi everyone! I knew last week was going to be slow on the blog – happens every 4 weeks! More often than not I close at work, which leaves mornings open to starts my day off right. I get enough sleep, I get enough coffee, I get to work out – and I get to blog! I’m on a rolling 4 week schedule at work, so every 4th week is my week to have all opening shifts. I push through and get up 1.5 hours earlier than the norm to work out in the mornings (I flat out won’t exercise if I wait til the afternoon/evenings… I just won’t lol). – and ugh after 2 days of that routine I’m dead by day 3. Even by day 2. So when I come home, blogging and thinking are not high on my to-do list. In May, my entire schedule will change due to our “summer hours” starting, so hopefully moving forward things stay pretty consistent. 🙂

Anyway, here is your weekly update on Instagram posts! Quite a few flatlays and a couple of #ootd photos.

POLKA DOTS:

This dotted mixed media tank is perfect to tuck into skirts or pants. Reviews are correct – it does shrink a tad, so go with your regular size. I washed on delicate cycle, air dried, and ironed with a steamer and did not have any issues. I would say go up one size if you fit in between 2 sizes.

Instagram Lately

A roundup of last week’s flatlays & #ootd photos from Insta! This coming week might be a little slower than the last couple of weeks ~ I usually use my weekends off to plan out blog photos and my schedule was interrupted by life… aka horses and puppies! Not always a bad thing, they are my children. ☺️

Current Sales:

  • Banana Republic: 40% off almost everything: code BRSHOP
  • Old Navy: 30% off your order (no code required)
  • Ann Taylor: 50% off + free shipping: code SPRINGTOIT
  • Target: BOGO 50% sandals

TWIST-FRONT TOP:

I really like this twist front top. It has a lot of details for only $23. The front portion is a soft knit material, while the back is mixed media and more blouse-like. 5 color options available. The short sleeves are really nice also – layer under a cardigan if it’s cooler or by itself this spring.

COLD DAY:

The weather swings down south have been crazy lately! We had 2 weeks of warm weather, then it started raining and grew cold for several days, then windy and somewhat warmer… and now we are back to 80 degrees and sunny. Hello migraine! Thank you very much Mother Nature. 😝 I really haven’t purchased any ‘spring like’ sweaters this year ~ I was ready for shorts! ~ so I pulled out a fall camo thermal and called it an outfit! Save this one for inspiration for next fall. 😉

STRIPED RUFFLE TEE:

This top is a must have! Hands down one of the favorite items in my closet! Only $17. Target did good with this one! I have the gold striped color from last year, and when I saw it was re-released this year in this black/white color, I scooped it up immediately.

SPRING FLORALS:

Styled this pretty floral peplum wrap top with pink and white accessories for work last week. Does need to be worn with higher waisted jeans, but very pretty if you like this style of top!

top: Banana Republic | cardigan: Target | bag: Target | necklace: Kendra Scott

jeans: Old Navy | shoes: Aldo (old) – option

STRIPES:

This outfit might be more of a summer inspiration, but we have weather in the low 80s and as soon as we get above 84 that’s good enough for me to wear shorts errrryday! C’mon April!

Caslon striped tee, STS Blue white denim shorts, Steve Madden Jessy Sandals, Baublebar earrings, Express fedora

tee: Nordstrom | shorts: STS Blue | sandals: Steve Madden (old) – option

Love how soft this tee is! A new arrival from Free People, this basic tee is everything I except from the FP line! 6 color options available and perfect for spring and summer days. I ordered my normal size from the brand (XS) ~ if you are new to the Free People line, always go down one from your normal size in other brands.
