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! ❤️

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.

Work Outfit: LOFT on Sale!

Ohh, it’s the end of the weekend, but the good news is LOFT has a great sale happening right now! Everything is an extra 40-60% off + free shipping! I’ve had quite a few items in my checkout cart for awhile, and I purposefully did that so I could pick them up on sale + an extra discount! It was well worth the wait!

LOFT is one of my favorite stores to find functional skirts for work. The quality at both LOFT and sister store Ann Taylor are usually very good and I never have to worry about shrinkage, tears, or things falling apart.

The skirt shown here is on sale for $24! It’s just a pull-on skirt, no pesky zippers, and has some stretch. I’m wearing my regular size, but honestly could have went up one size as well. The waist is forgiving but does run a tad small.

See all of my other sale picks below!

Other LOFT Favorites:

love short sleeve sweaters for work. If I’m not wearing a cardigan, you best believe I have a lightweight sweater on because the air conditioning is my enemy. 😝 All items below have been on my wish list for awhile – the halter top sweater is the only new arrival I purchased – it looks beautiful and I couldn’t resist! I also picked up another skirt for work.

New Arrivals Now On My Wish List!:

I have all 5 of these items now sitting in my cart! Waiting for the next sale on sale! I love that blues, whites, and yellows have been so popular this spring. The combination is soothing and so pretty.

Flatlay: Muscle Tank

I’ve had this muscle tank for a couple years and just realized it now comes in 4 color options! Priced at $32 and very good quality for the price. I did go down one size, but feel like my regular size would have worked also. It’s a little ‘swingy’ and easy to do a front tuck with – or leave untucked.

And I can’t leave without throwing a shout out to these sandals! Hello spiky things on my feet! 😍 A few color options are available, fit TTS, and comfy! I wear these a lot on my days off with distressed denim. It’s like dressy with a kick of sassy.

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.

Flatlay: Spring Gingham

Happy Memorial Day friends! Did you have a good (hopefully long) weekend? I did get 3 days off and boy I needed it! My husband was off the last 2 days from work also, so we definitely took the time to spend together (which is why I blasted out a few blog posts… and then disappeared again LOL). Between spending time with the horses, taking Reid for little hiking excursions away from home, and not even gonna deny some Netflix binge watching didn’t happen! – we had a good weekend. I had the day off today to catch up and regroup for the week and it was really nice.

Today I wanted to share the return of a top that’s been a favorite in my closet for the last few years! J.Crew Factory released their last hurrah of spring new arrivals and I was excited to see they brought back this same print, but in an updated tie waist version.  I would style it just like they did on the model also – either with a skirt or jeans! I have the same top from last year, but in a blue/pink gingham that’s really pretty. Either way, I’m excited they brought this top back – and the print – the navy/white striped option is pretty also! Right now the top is only $20 + free shipping ~ and my skirt is on super sale also at 60% of and only $24! I have a feeling these are Memorial Day sale items though and may end tonight!
