Sale Alert

When you hear that American Eagle is having a sale on their tops from 25%-40% off, I do a try on session and love everything that I tried on.  This sale is perfect timing since fall has just began here and winter is right around the corner.

I first tried on this super soft sweater in the perfect fall color, this burgundy is the prettiest.  I tried on a small for a more relaxed fit and I liked how it fit me, perfect for fall.  It also comes in 1 other color that is also perfect for fall and has the cutest lace up back detail.  I would recommend sizing up one size for a more relaxed fit.

It seems like there is a lace trend going on here and well that might be the case but I’m not hating it currently.  The next item I tried on also laced up but this time in the front and it is the softest lace up flannel with distressed details on the hem.

I tried on an xsmall and even though it says its suppose to be an oversize fit an xsmall fit just right.  If I wanted a more relax/oversize feel I would definitely size up 1 size.  This flannel also comes in 2 other colors and if my husband wasn’t with I would have bought all 3 -haha-

I am loving this oversize trend that is going on right now and with this next piece it would be perfect layered under a cardigan or even under a sweater, either or would do and would be cute with both.  This oversized button up flannel shirt is the softest and would be perfect paired with a cozy fire and a good cuddle sesh with the hubs.  I tried on an xsmall and loved how it fit.  It was oversized and perfect plus it comes in 1 other color.

The last top I tried on was my favorite and I usually don’t go for anything camo but after I felt how soft it was I just had to try it on.  This sweatshirt has the perfect slouchy fit maybe that is due to the fact I tried on a medium but I loved how it fit.  It was the coziest and had plenty of room to layer something under it.  This sweatshirt comes in 3 other colors.

I tried on 2 pairs of hi-rise jeggings, not on sale, but still really comfortable.  I have always been a fan of jeggings.  They are one style that are long enough for me, hits me right at my ankle where I like them to hit and the fit is just perfect for me. Hi-Rise Jegging-Tan, Hi-Rise Jegging-Faded Black

All the tops I tried on are 25% off and I will add a few others that I found online that I am also loving

boyfriend plaid  // cute tunic // ruffle tunic

tiered sleeve // plaid-lined denim // utility shirt

bell sleeve // exaggerated sleeve // zip-shoulder

bell sleeve // ruffle sweatshirt //  crew sweatshirt

There are so many more affordable shirts and there are lots of other options but these are my top picks let me know if you purchase anything 🙂

Welcome Autumn

22156741_10155503510970552_1722577245_n.jpg

I love autumn and anything related to fall in general and this moto jacket is the perfect addition to my fall wardrobe.  I bought it back during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and finally got around to styling it.  I’m wearing an xs and it fits me perfect.  I still have room to wear a sweater under it and it fits snug enough styled with a tee.  The “Life Changer Moto Jacket” (thats the name on the Nordstrom Website) also comes in a pretty olive color and would also be perfect for fall.  Here I have styled it with the comfiest button down and had this button down in the wardrobe since last fall.

I can’t find the button down online any more but here are plenty more options that would go completely fine with the jacket.  I really like this option and I think the colors are perfect for fall. I previously tried it on and loved how it fit.

These cut-out booties by Steve Madden are amazing.  I love the cut-out detail on the sides and they are also the perfect fall addition to my shoe collection.  I’m wearing my normal size 8.5, but they run a little big so if you purchase size down half a size.  They also come in this beautiful rose color.

warm days, cool nights

21124204_10155408028350552_850326215_n

This kinda outfit is one I’ll be rocking when it is just a chilly afternoon but warm enough to wear shorts but also cool enough to pair it with a sweatshirt.  I remember being younger and this was my go-to outfit.  You can dress up any outfit like I did with these amazing embellished mules from Steve Madden.

I purchased these during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and they are one of my favorite purchases.  I got my regular size and they fit perfect.  They are comfortable to walk in all day and would be cute paired with skinny jeans, a tank and cardigan.  I love the pearl embellishment on them and I can’t wait to wear them come fall time.

21148304_10155408027430552_1441758938_n

These shorts are super comfortable and with the lace detail on the exposed part of the pocket you can’t go wrong.  I’m wearing a size 0 which is my normal size and they fit well.  I do have longer legs so they do fit me a little short but they are described as ‘shortie’.

21100685_10155408027400552_792770266_n.jpg

I recently did a post where I talked about how American Eagle had clearance for 60% off (you can read about it in my fall is coming post) well this sweatshirt is another one I picked up during that sale.  It also is a one size and I love the over size fit with these shorts.  There have been some nights that I even fell asleep in it thats how comfortable it is.  Sadly, I can’t find it online anymore but they are having a clearance sale and you can receive 50% off

Everyone-if you take anything away from this post take away that you need to head to American Eagle because they are currently having a sale where jeans, joggers and shorts are buy one get one 50% off.  You can’t beat that deal and with fall right around the corner what better reason to stock up on these items.

Sweater Weather

20840530_10155380797050552_768872605_n.jpg

I recently did a try on session at Free People and I have to say I loved everything I tried on.  This brand isn’t usually one I will go after but with fall right around the corner I thought why not step out of my comfort zone and see what this brand is like.  Most of their items fit oversize but that is how they are made and surprisingly I was in heaven with the pieces I tried on.

20864209_10155380822355552_657604081_n.jpg

The 3 sweaters I tried on were all meant to fit oversized and with fall right around the corner they can help any summer outfit transtition into a fall outfit.

20814885_10155380822400552_2011538589_n.jpg

The first sweater I tried on was so comfortable.  It’s the perfect sweater to wear around the house or throw it on when it starts to get chilly out at night time.  A cute bralette would pair perfect since it has a plunging v-neck, throw over a pair of jeans and a tank during the chilly summer nights and you are good to go.  I am wearing an XS/S in white.  It also comes in 4 other colors.

20863919_10155380822475552_531713320_n.jpg

20891419_10155380822505552_1766780602_n.jpg

As much as I wanted to like this sweater I just couldn’t do it.  Yes, it fit oversized and it has a hood but I just couldn’t get into it.  The only plus about this sweater was that it has pockets.  I am wearing an XS/S in sangria and it comes in one other color.

 

and the last sweater I tried on was my favorite and my husband favorite….

20864353_10155380822555552_1415356911_n.jpg

This sweater is so comfortable that I could definitely take a few naps in it.  It fits oversized and I’m wearing an XS in ivory and it comes in 6 additional colors.  This ‘sweater’ is considered a thermal but regardless I would purchase this if I were you.  It is the perfect ‘sweater’ to transition in fall.  Throw it on during those late chilly summer nights with a pair of shorts or during this crisp fall mornings with a lace bralette and a pair of joggers.

**I would recommend the sweater to everyone**

20885177_10155380822575552_1852777801_n.jpg

 

I tried on one thing that was tight to the body and I wasn’t a fan (I’ll stick with the sweaters I tried on)

20891621_10155380822380552_326054492_n.jpg

I tried on this black lace tank and when I saw it on the hanger I was really excited about. I love lace (my wedding dress was all lace) so I got my normal size and headed to the fitting with my other things in hand.  First off,  I’m a small girl, I have a small frame so my normal size is usually and XS or S when I put on the s I could barely move that is how tight it was.  I’m unsure if thats how its suppose to fit but I wasn’t a fit.  I’m wearing a S in black and it also comes in white.

I paired it with….

Screen Shot 2017-08-18 at 10.12.09 AM.png

This bralette. This is the first lace bralette I tried on and it was comfortable.  I tried on a S in black and there is 5 additional colors.

20916138_10155387944065552_379075323_n.jpg

I tried on one pair of jeans and I’m not sure about them.  I like the distressed look on them but I’m not a fan of where they cut my long.  I’m on the taller side so I’m not sure if they are suppose to be cropped or not but they are cropped on me.  I can’t find the jeans on their site but I am wearing a size 25.  They have a few other pairs of jeans I wouldn’t mind trying on.

 

Happy shopping and let me know if you purchase any of the pieces I tried on.

date night

20751431_10155369793955552_2127412811_n.jpg

My husband and I have different days off work so when I know its date night I get really excited.  I put together this easy date night outfit that is perfect for summer and can transition into fall easily.

20786548_10155369740905552_1655059023_n.jpg

This outfit can transition easily into fall with any cardigan but this one from target (what girl doesn’t love target) is one of my favorite.  Not only is it super affordable but its also comfortable.  There have been a few evenings where I fell asleep in it, thats how comfortable it is.  I am wearing a size xs in the cardigan and I’m 5’8 and I love the length of it on me.  It also comes in 10 colors altogether.

20751176_10155369741465552_813319197_n.jpg

This tank is from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale & I love it.  It’s super lightweight so its perfect for summer and will be a perfect layering piece come fall.  I love the color and the little lace detail at the bottom of the tank.  It is also reasonably priced at only $29 and comes in one other color.

20792919_10155369740960552_1345231687_n.jpg

These boots.  These boots.  These boots.  I have no words for them.  They are really comfortable with the block heel and come right to my knees.  I love the neutral color because come fall they will go with everything which makes me a little more excited for fall.  I am wearing my regular size, an 8.5 in the color Havano.  In addition to the color I’m wearing there also 3 other colors.  These boots are also a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale item.

Off to enjoy my date night with my handsome hubs

 

♥♥

 

p.s my jeans are super old.  like 5 years old.  i found them in the stockroom of Hollister when i worked there. super old. a very long time ago.

fall is coming

20786225_10155364239390552_1966254191_n.jpg

 

FALL is coming and I’m super excited.  The crisp mornings and the cool breezy nights are my favorite times of the year.  With that, I love a good comfortable sweater and with this purple turtleneck how could I not be ready for fall.  You can dress it up or dress it down.

20707691_10155364230655552_946902773_n.jpg

I can’t say enough about this turtleneck.  It’s one size and it’s so comfy.  I got it from American Eagle in the clearance section which is currently 60% off.  Make sure to check out an American Eagle store or the website to check out the clearance section.  Some great finds.

20751579_10155364231410552_661848681_n.jpg

These pants or should I say spanx since that is what they are.  I have jeans and leggings that fit like a glove but these are nothing like I have.  I wasn’t sure about buying them at first but I bought them through the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (more on that in another post later this week or next week) and I’m so glad I did.  I am wearing an xsmall and I am very pleased with them.  Yes, since the sale is over they do cost a pretty penny but I HIGHLY recommend them.  **if you take anything away from this post, BUY the SPANX**

The 2 shoes that I paired with the turtleneck and spanx are also from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  Every time I went to go check the shoe section the pink ones were always sold out in my size (I’m wearing a size 8.5).  Two days before the sale was over they were restocked in my size and you better believe I added them to my cart and bought them.

20786446_10155364230620552_659133420_n.jpg

20750770_10155364231015552_193929870_n.jpg

These grey ones are super cute and with the block heel they are easy to walk in.  I’m on the taller side so finding heels that is easy to walk in for me is kinda hard but with the block heel, I could walk in them all day.

 

*taking pictures in this turtleneck while its 85 degrees outside wasn’t easy but thanks to my husband for always making me laugh during our shoots 🙂 *

Rainy Days

I love a good rainy day during summer time and I have the best rain boots to get me through those days.  I bought them a few years ago while on a trip to Boston and I fell in love with the color.  Hunter Boots are the best company around for rain boots.  They have so many variations of rain boots; kids options; clothing and bags and accessories.  The ones below I love them; the teal short gloss rain boots.

19883498_10155253391590552_2030530822_n.jpg

For reference: I wear a size 8

Start of Summer

You can never predict a summer in Pennsylvania.  We have days that are hot with a cool breeze, days that are hot with a hot breeze, days filled with rain and clouds and days that are just too humid to want to do anything else besides sit inside in the a/c.  My favorite days are ones where it is just the perfect temperature to chill outside with a nice cold, refreshing beer and have some laughs with my friends.

Even on the hottest days of the summer you can still catch me in jeans.  Yes, it may be as hot as ever and as humid as everything but I feel most comfortable in jeans, super skinny jeans none the less 🙂 I may be wearing jeans almost all summer long but I love to throw a cute little tank on and I’m set for the day.  Along with a cute little tank, a good pair of sandals can make any outfit that much better.

It may be a few days past ‘the first day of summer’ but I’m starting my summer off in the cutest, light weight tank with a pair of block wedges that only cost $35 (I love me a good sale) 19427859_10155205914225552_626851070_n.jpg

Everything in this post besides the shoes I’ve had.  The white jeans I’ve linked are not the same ones but the same brand.  They fit just right.  I have long legs and it’s really hard to find jeans that actually fit the length of my legs.  Sadly, the cute lace coral top is longer available but I’ll link other options from the same store.  I’ve also linked Sunglass options  . The striped fold-over bag is no longer available but is the perfect bag for any summer outfit.

19433413_10155205985865552_521107227_n.jpg

Sometimes the outfit is all about the footwear.  I have to tell you these sandals can definitely make an outfit just right.  First off-I am on the taller side, almost 5’9 so when buying any shoes with any type of heel I have to check the heel height considering I am already taller than my husband when I’m not wearing any shoes.  This is the first pair of sandals that I own that have a block heel and I have to say I love them.  Not only do they have a cute little tassel but they also have a strappy detail to wrap around the ankle with a zip-up back.  These sandals come in 3 different colors-black, sand and olive.  The black and sand are on sale for $34.99 and the olive is $24.99.  //GO BUY THEM//

#VBxTarget 

I’ve seen other bloggers post about the Victoria Beckham at Target collection and needed to check it out for myself and I must say I want EVERYTHING.  My mom and I went to Target last week to check out what the Target near us had and even my mom was a fan of almost the whole collection.  My mom told me that we could return in a few days to pick some pieces.

A few of my favs:

Bee Print Button Down

Blush Floral Bomber

White Button Down

Bunny Collared Top

I purchased the last two pieces and I will be purchasing more. I will have to order online since the Target near me ran out of my size in almost everything.

I styled the bunny top on my Instagram but here are a few pictures for a refresh

I really like the White Button Down. It is a very classic piece that I personally think can either be dressed up or dressed down. I decided to style it just casually with a pair of cute booties.

•don’t forget to check back, I’ll be purchasing some more pieces soon•

sunday craft

My husband and I have this thing for champagne.  Before we had the jobs we have now we created this thing we like to call Champagne. Bacon. LMN. Sunday. (LMN=Lifetime Movie Network) Yes, my husband would watch this channel with me, but back to the star of this post, the champagne.  My husband and I have started saving the champagne bottles that we finish and we actually have a little collection going so we decided to start doing something with them.

Suppliesany size champagne bottle, any color spray paint and this time we added some sparkle.  I picked up this little glitter case for $1 from target of course ( I love me some target, who doesn’t)

16809619_10154836969355552_513707745_n.jpg

Once we had all the supplies it was time to get started.   I don’t really trust myself with the whole spraying of the spray paint so I left that to my husband.  This time we went with a grayish color, it has a bit of a texture to it.

This was a super easy project that we will be doing again with other champagne bottles.

Final Product
