Back to Basics

Cheers to the Mondayest of Monday’s friends! Today’s post is easy-peezy, that outfit that’s your go-to for any occasion: date night, brunch, running errands, the works. It’s that basic (insert emoji with the hand flat out by the face primping up the hair) everyday look that looks fabulously chic on everyone. And the best part, it’s incredibly versatile, take it from summer to winter, day to night with just a few tweaks! If you’ve been visiting the blog here the past few weeks, these high rise raw hem skinnies will look very familiar. They were one of my favorite purchases from the Anniversary Sale, and have been restocked in all sizes! I do recommend sizing down FYI. This pair of skinnies is that perfect everyday dark wash, dress it up, dress it down. This pair will go anywhere with you! I opted to go with a simple knotted tee to tie (literally) off the look. I am loving this trend of knotted tees, they add such a great touch to what’s an otherwise plain tee! I am such a fan of the easy effortless casual looks, those clutch ones that you can throw on no matter what and you’ll look great! For […]

Hats Off to Summer

Do you ever have those staple pieces that you wear more than you’d like to admit, and when someone asks you where you got it, your response is something embarrassing like, “Oh this? I found this in an abandoned desk drawer at work…”? No? Just me? Rats. Well, today’s look is including just that: a really great hat that was seriously found in a desk drawer at my work, and I’m obsessed with it. It must have been a gift from a barrel company, notice the logo plastered on the side haha. I was seriously looking all over for a hat like this, and was moments away from purchasing one before I chickened out, and then it literally fell into my lap a few days later! Dontcha just love when that happens?! Head to toe, this look is full of great staple pieces. This top was actually one that I first saw on my roommate and new I had to have! The light fabric and loose silhouette make this tee perfect for these summer days! It’s somewhat of a convertible piece, since you can wear it off the shoulder, or with the sleeves up. The hem is almost like a […]

Beautifully Beaded

Friends! I am so in love with the top featured in today’s post. In addition to this darling beaded top being too cute for words, it’s also on major sale! Let’s first just get down and dirty with the details. At first sight, the beaded flower design on this chambray top immediately makes it so unique! True to this brand, this top is classic and high quality, with a flattering feminine cut that will look fabulous on all shapes and sizes. Next, feast your eyes on those tie tops! I mean how much cuter can it get?! I’m really loving the tie trend I’ve been seeing this season. It just adds that extra bit of darling-ness (I know, not a word) that any girly-girl loves! As an added bonus, this cutie patootie top is now marked down $30! Love this tie-strap trend as much as me? Check it out in white lace, and blue polka dots that are 40% off with code YAYSUMMER. For the ultimate Sunday Brunch look, I paired my beaded beauty with some easy white skinnies. I snagged this pair for less than $50, and they’re a new favorite! So easy to throw on and go, I love the […]

July Favorites

Trying to sound like I’m ok with it being Monday is tough today, friends. Monday’s are always a doozy after a weekend that seems to have gone by in a flash, ya feel?! I was one busy girl this weekend, company Giants game on Friday night, then Saturday I raced down to Fresno to shower Zach’s beautiful sister, a bride-to-be! I’ve never been to a bridal shower before, and man they’re fun! I can’t wait for more (or even mine)! Anyways, the real reason you visited today, my monthly round-up of some favorite buys from the past 31 days! Since the month of July was predominantly taken up by the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I’ll direct you to shop my favorite picks from that here, and a look featuring some of my purchases here. Also, stay tuned for a fun announcement at the end of this post! Laser detail leggings. I know it’s hot as blazes outside so tight pants that hug every nook and cranny are the last thing on our minds, but these leggings I snagged last month are like heaven. You all know I’m a sucker for anything bright white (don’t worry all you spill-prone gals, they come […]
