J.Crew Factory new arrivals are (finally) here! I felt like I waited forever and ever for these! They seem to skip over January and try to clearance out holiday styles, which fair enough – but c’mon guys this girl waits for the new every month! I think the thing I love the most about JCF is that A) they always have the most fun with colors and prints and B) they seem to always bring back the tried and true pieces you wear every year. My absolute favorites are the linen sidewalk skirt and graphic tees. I have close to 10 colors/prints in each style and every year I try to part with the oldies, but struggle. I still have the fox and elephant graphic collector tee from years ago with all the metallics and I still can’t let them go!
I put together 4 outfit inspirations using all the new goodies! I actually ran to our local outlet mall yesterday and told myself I could pick out 1-2 items (ha!). Saved by lack of sizing available in store and lipstick on the shirt I had picked out, I ended coming home with the pink scalloped sweater below and faux pearl hoop earrings that I think pair wonderfully. So, I guess I did (unintentionally) well! However, my wish list is deep online and I can’t decide what I will order next. My only saving grace was the cold front that blew us away today in south Florida, and this 40 degree weather has me putting my nose up to shorts and skirts at the moment! 🙂

Thinking about all the spring trends and the tie dye print is making a comeback! While definitely a weekend or casual print, it’s perfect to dress up denim a little and make your outfit a little more fun! I rounded up all of my favorites from various retailers below — Anthropologie and Nordstrom of course have the trendiest and best styles! Old Navy and Amazon have awesome simple tees, tanks, and tops to keep it affordable while staying trendy also! I love them all and the styles are so unique it’s would be hard to narrow down a favorite. Since I live in Florida, I would say one of the tees or tanks are top of my wish list – but the Blank NYC moto jacket from Nordstrom is on sale and I would be top of my list if I lived up north!
off shoulder tie knot top | open shoulder tee | v-neck tee

Hi friends! It’s been awhile since I’ve curated a good wish list — I’ve been waiting for the spring arrivals to start to drop and they are finally here! Loving some of the new (and old) trends releasing!
#1: Camo shirt: I have a camo waffle knit top, camo jacket, camo sweater…. but loving this camo shirt I can dress up (or down) this spring! I think honestly this shirt is at the top of my wish list just because I have so many styling ideas in mind.
#2: Bubblegum pink sweater: Just because. It’s pink and pretty (and if you live somewhere cold, layer that bad boy over the camo shirt! 😜)
#3: Woven mules: These mules are my absolute favorite in the spring and summer months. I have a white pair that I’ve honestly worn to death and will probably need replaced next year. I love this newest version and hoping to add it to my closet soon to give my other pair a break!
#4: AE jeans: This new pair is just as good as all the rest, and I love the simple one leg distressing.
#5: Tie front top: This top from Nordstrom was a huge hit last summer – I passed it up and have regretted it ever since. It’s back in 3 color options, and I have the white and navy/white striped on my wish list!
#6: Poppy red skirt: I have this same (or very similar) skirt in a light pink hue and I love this poppy red color!
Hi friends! This week has been extra crazy on a lot of fronts! Work picked up rapidly with the new year (to the point I’ve never seen it this busy in all of my 15 years in pharmacy – just trying to keep my body above ground ha!). And if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I posted on stories that we adopted a new pup! We welcomed 3 year old ‘Pippa’ into our home after she retired from Greyhound racing in November. Today was her first full day in our home and we absolutely adore her. She’s become a permanent fixture on our couch, sleeps every second I let her, and is sweet as pie. She’s living up to all of the Greyhound rumors!
That all said, I’m ready to put out a few blog posts this week! Amazon has released a lot of great items recently – I add them to my cart or wish list as soon as I see something I like (so I don’t forget about it), and all of these are currently on my list. Florida spring is right around the corner, and for those of you who live up north, these are affordable spring break finds! I think everything is below $30 and runs TTS according to the brand sizing. They also come in multiple color options!

Wishing all of my readers a very Happy New Year! This past year as certainly had more downs then ups for myself personally, and this decade has been certainly full of many life changes as I’m sure we all have gone through. I’m all sorts of ready for the new year and ready to take this life by the horns and make it better than ever! I’ve really started to appreciate the things that truly matter in life, and ready to make some huge life changes. Of course nothing I can mention on social media, 🙂 but you’ll know it when it happens! As far as this little space of mine, it’s not going anywhere. I’m more than ready to bring on spring content for the blog and hope that wherever you are and reading this, that there is some warmer weather and sunshine in your near future!
I also wanted to share my #topnine2019 from Instagram! I guess I shouldn’t give up my flatlay game! 😘
My loafers are 30% off today! Along with everything at Sole Society! No code required.
Move over glitter and red, spring colors are already hitting stores! I’m pretty excited about this because I think Florida froze us to death in November and then forgot about winter altogether. It’s been in the 80s (feel like temp 87 today!) and while I’m sure jokes on me, at this very moment I’m feeling all the spring fashion. I have this sweater on my wish list (it also comes in 2 shades of blue), and would style it like shown below with light wash denim and cognac detail.

I’ve rounded up the best deals I could find online, because I don’t think anyone waits for Cyber Monday anymore! Whether shopping for yourself or someone else, there are some great deals this year! I do most of Black Friday shopping for myself, however I do tend to stick to the ‘classics’ or ‘closet workhorse’ products these days. My husband wants running shoes. My family wants ‘nothing’ – so that’s always interesting haha. So, I have to get creative and usually takes me til the week before Christmas! I love to find products that will work for both winter and right into spring. Red and pinks always work this time of year – perfect for the holidays and right into February for Valentines Day! I also love to scope out any ‘new arrivals’ that will work for both winter and spring. Think warmer/rosy tones that aren’t quite pastel, but also aren’t heavy on the holiday colors.
My first big find was 40% off these Kate Spade satchels! I usually treat myself to a nice bag on my birthday. It’s been a tradition, but this past year I had purchased a few Target and Sole Society bags (which I feel good about since they are vegan), but I’ve really wanted to a nice structured bag to carry that’s fresh and new. These Kate Spade bags caught my eye right away since they are a classic design. They come in 3 sizing options and multiple colors! I fell in love with the ‘frosted spearmint’ color (bottom left). It’s a beautiful hue for winter and spring. That specific color is available in the medium and large sizes – I ordered the medium.
small black (other colors available) | small red
medium frosted spearmint (other colors available) | large pink (other colors available – including spearmint)
small olive (sold out – same color option here)
$10 sweaters! Also, if you spend $50 online – Target will send you a 20% off coupon to use 12/3 – 12/14!
I own all of these sweaters and these are all fantastic! 100% worth the $10 price!
leopard print | zebra print | stripes
gray pullover | raglan | striped pullover
Hands down, the best mascara! On sale for $10!!
