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.

J.Crew Factory striped midi skirt, Old Navy tank top, J.Crew Factory clare cardigan, J.Crew Factory necklace, Kate Spade scallop flats

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! ❤️

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.

Banana Republic striped linen tie knot tank, Old Navy sandals, Old Navy white denim shorts, Steve Madden clutch, Sugarfix earrings

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.

tee: J.Crew | shorts: STS Blue | sandals: Steve Madden

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:

  • Old Navy: 30% off your order (no code required)
  • Ann Taylor: 50% off + free shipping: code SPRINGTOIT

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. 😉

top: AE (old) – option | jeans: AE | booties: Vince Camuto

bag: Sole Society (old) – option | necklace: Nordstrom (old) – option

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.

denim: Old Navy | top: Target | mules: Target | bag: Sole Society (old) – option

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

fedora: Express (old) – option | earrings: Sugarfix (old) – option

PERFECT WEEKEND TEE:

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.

Free People tee, Vans sneakers, Express denim shorts, Sugarfix earrings, BP sunglasses

top: Free People | shorts: Express | earrings: Sugarfix | sunglasses: Nordstrom | sneakers: Vans

 Denim Skirt:

Just love this skirt! I wore it to work for the first time last week and felt comfortable all day long. It fits a little big (I purchased my normal size 6), but honestly I’m happy I did. It never stretched out and I was just happy with the way it fit. The length was really good also for work ~ not as long as a pencil skirt, but not as short as some of the ‘mini’ lengths can be.

skirt: LOFT | tee: JCF (similar option) | necklace: JCF (old) – similar

Softest Peplum Tee:

This peplum tee is on super sale! Definitely worth the $17 price tag! Free shipping if you are a Loyallist member (free to join + extra discount). Also – the leopard mules are from Target, and highly recommend for the $25 price point! Mine are from last year’s line and one of the most worn shoes in my closet during the spring transition months (before sandals take over permanently in the Florida sun!)

tee: AQUA | jeans: Old Navy | bag: Target (old) – option

mules: Target | necklace: Baublebar (old) – option

Olive Jacket:

My jacket is old, but lots of similar options available right now and linked below! Olive is the perfect color year round, especially during fall and spring. I love pairing it with pink tones during the spring time.

sandals: Sole Society (old): option | bag: A New Day | necklace: JCF (old) – option

Striped Peplum Tee:

Size tip: go down one size! I have this peplum tee is 2 colors – the striped color below and a coral color from last year. Currently on sale for $23, I highly recommend it for spring and heck into summer and fall! I layer mine under long cardigans for the cooler months. I purchased the XS in the striped version below. My coral color is an XS Petite, and I do feel like it fits a tad better, but the striped tee unfortunately only comes in regular sizing. I still love it, just wish it fit a tad higher on my waist. It also comes in a v-neck long sleeve version here.

necklace (old) – option | sandals: Vince Camuto

Ruffle Shorts:

You’ve heard me say it before – I passed on these shorts last year, and was so happy to see they made a comeback! Perfect for tucking tops in or wearing a sweater over top. They do fit a little big, but I still went with my normal size (size 6). If you are in between sizes, I would go down to the smaller size. Also ~ my most worn mules from last summer are also back with a little different detail around the top and very pretty!

LOFT ruffle shorts, Baublebar Sugarfix necklace, Sam Edelman woven mules

shorts: LOFT | top: LOFT | long necklace: Sugarfix | short necklace: Kendra Scott

fedora: Express (old) – option | mules: Sam Edelman (new version)

Rust & Pink:

One of those weird color combinations that I would never think to pair myself, but I figured I’d give it a try! Love that this rust striped tee (only $8) isn’t over the top with the rust color, so it paired perfectly with a muted pink denim. My sandals are on sale!

A New Day rust striped tee, pink jeans, A New Day clutch, Sam Edelman Brandon sandals

tee: Target | jeans: Express (old) – option | clutch: Target (old) – option

necklace: Baublebar (old) – option | sandals: Sam Edelman

Jewel tones in spring, yes please! This skirt comes in 6 color options – I have a cobalt blue color from last year and it was definitely a spring/summer favorite for work! This marigold color is almost sold out, but check out the pale blue and pink options – so pretty! Both are on my wish list. My polka dot top is from LOFT and very old. One of those lost long loves in my closet, I noticed polka dot options popping up on various store sites and thought to style mine! Similar styles linked below.

Outfit #3:

Another work favorite, this skirt has made a come-back! First released last fall, sold out, and released again for spring. I’ve paired it with camel for fall, an ivory graphic sweater for Xmas, and now another neutral for spring with a pop of pink. The options are endless here.

Outfit #4:

Leopard, meet Zebra! Love adding eccentric & fun accessories to my closet. They are the kind you might wear once or twice a year, but they last forever and can pull them out of your closet at any time in the future and still ‘in style’. Because how often do belts really change?

belt: Banana Republic | jeans: Old Navy | loafers: Sam Edelman

Outfit #8:

Since leopard has been a popular spring trend this year, I’ve been trying to find different ways to incorporate my accessories into outfits with spring colors. This outfit was an unlikely pairing, but I ended up liking the warm ‘hues’ in the mules and bag compared with the cooler blues in the denim and sweater.

Outfit #10:

Bows & Ruffles. That should speak for itself! My shorts were popular from last year and I passed them up. I regretted it ever since, and when they were re-released a few weeks ago, I jumped on them right away and so happy I did! We are finally getting into shorts wether down in Florida (hopefully… blink and it’s in the 40s again.. ), and my goal is to find ‘nice’ shorts (ha). My closet is filled with distressed denim shorts, and it was so so hot last summer that I’ve realized I need to get on the ball with a few nice pair of shorts. I’m not a huge fan of my legs (lots of battle wounds and scars… lol. Ugh.), so I really avoid shorts at all costs, but this year I think I’m going to own those scars and rock shorts out! 🙂

LOL, and if you’re wondering.. I really do have some battle scars. Spider bite scar on one calf, dog bite scar on the other calf, I fell running a couple years ago in a 5k and have a bad scar on my knee and “scratches” going up my thigh that look like stretch marks on my other leg (from sliding in the gravel), spider veins from standing at work behind both knees, and… well, that might be it. I’m a mess. Or at least I feel that way, ha!

Instagram Lately

Hi guys! Today’s another ’roundup’ day sharing #ootd photos for the week!

My outfit below was what I wore to work earlier this week. I saw a Sole Society ad while back with a white sweater, polka dot scarf, and light blue bag which provided the inspiration! I actually pulled this polka dot tank out from my Poshmark pile. I even deleted the listing to boot! I love when that happens. I usually base my Poshmark listings on fit, duplicates in my closet, or if I’ve lost interest in the item. In this case, I had a similar polka dot tank which I sold awhile back, so I happily re-shopped my closet. 😁

My tank is obviously old, but check out the J.Crew Factory version linked below – it’s a new arrival and very similar!

tank: Old Navy (old) – similar | cardigan: Old Navy | jeans: J.Crew Factory (old wash) – very similar

This outfit I wore yesterday when it turned -768236 below zero again and rained all day. Summer can’t get here fast enough! However, I was pretty excited to wear this new tie front thermal top. These thermal tops have been super popular all winter long and I can’t believe I’ve held out this long! Mine is only $20, comes in 4 colors, and is super soft and perfect for cool days.

Flatlay Friday (on Monday)

Hi guys! My flatlay roundup from last week got a little delayed from my work schedule, so I moved it to today. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen all of these before except the one I will call “spring break inspiration” ~ which I have a feeling I’ll be using a lot more in coming days! Our weather has finally stabilized (I hope… for now…) down in southwest Florida and although nights are chilly, the days are gorgeous! High 60s, Low 70s ~ not exactly beach weather, but when you live down here full time it’s amazing. 🙂 My favorite outfits are ones where I can wear jeans, open toed sandals/booties, and a light long sleeve or 3/4 length top and that’s this weather! I love it! We won’t talk about the fact that I’m probably the palest person in all the land, but eh I’m preventing the wrinkles, right?! 😂
