Shopbop’s bi-annual Style Event sale is now live! This sale is a tiered event and gives buyers up to 25 percent off of their purchase using the code STYLE based on how much they spend. The Style Event is a great time to stock up on fall and winter favorites, Christmas presents and swimsuits for next year.
This fall, I am obsessed with sweater dresses and shearling shoes. I also *cannot* recommend these green cargo pants enough. I bought them in August and have worn them at least 25 times since then. They are great for travel, going out to eat, running errands, literally whatever! I get so many compliments on them when I go out and they are so comfy.
I know many of us are still wearing lounge sets so this sale is a great time to restock on those. I’m obsessed with these black lounge pants and love this grey set. This sweatshirt robe also just moved up to the top of my Christmas wishlist. On the opposite side of the fashion spectrum from loungewear is swimwear and now is a great time to buy for next season. So many Hunza G styles sell out buy March so I scooped up this adorable mint green one for next season!
Fall is finally here y’all!! The heat in Austin has been so overwhelming the past few weeks so when we woke up to weather in the 50s, Will and I decided to have date night at one of our favorite outdoor spots, Cosmic Coffee and Beer Garden. Although Cosmic has a gravel patio, I just knew I had to break in my favorite new shoes from Zara!
I didn’t expect this, but baby blue or powder blue has become my most worn shade this month and might be my favorite color for fall. Here’s what I threw together to pair with my shoes.
Are you excited for cooler weather?! Leave me a comment and let me know which looks and colors you are loving for fall!
Fall is almost here, my loves! Even though it is 100 degrees outside in Austin today, the promise of cooler weather, sweaters and boots is here. Although it has been hard for me to get in the mindset for fall, I’m sharing my crushes as we transition into this new season.
If my wardrobe on our trip to Kohler was any indication, I will be wearing these green pants all day, every day for the foreseeable future. They look amazing and are incredibly comfortable. I’ve paired it here with my favorite H&M sweater set from last season and my new shearling Birkenstocks.
Since the temperatures in Austin will be toasty through November at the earliest, I’m focusing mostly on dresses in darker tones of green, rust, black and blue as the seasons change. Swapping out sandals for tennis shoes and mules is also a great way to transition in a warmer climate.
As promised, I will be styling my favorite shirt dress with tan boots this fall. I love this dress because you can use the buttons to make it a sexy look or leave it undone for a sophisticated casual look.
What colors and styles are you loving as we move from summer into fall? Leave me a comment and let me know!
I can’t believe we are finally going on a vacation this summer! Because of our housing drama, we were forced to cancel all of our trips this summer except for one…of course it is a golf trip, but regardless, I am excited to travel and get out of the Texas heat for a few days.
This weekend we will be going to Chicago for one night and Destination Kohler for a few days so my husband, dad and a couple of their friends can have a Ryder Cup Style golf tournament with one another. Thankfully, my mom and sweet Charlie are coming on the trip too. We plan to do an architecture river cruise and dinner in Chicago and lots of spa time, walking and water activities while we are in Kohler.
Since the vibe of this trip is relaxation and fun dinners, I’m bringing mostly casual clothes with a few fun pieces for our dinners. I am also so excited to read my new book, Golden Girl, written by the “queen of beach reads” Elin Hilderbrand. Of course we will be on the shores of Lake Michigan, but that counts as a beach, right?
Stay tuned next week for my travel guide to Chicago and Destination Kohler!
Hailey Bieber isn’t the only one loving lavender this summer! As one of the season’s hottest colors, it comes as no surprise that we are all loving the pastel tones of purple too. “Millennial purple,” as it has been dubbed by Hola! Is encompassing of the hues from lilac to lavender and has been a staple in my spring and summer wardrobes this year.
One of my favorite purple pieces has been this mini dress from English Factory because of its color and light-weight cotton fabric. The ruffle detailing on it is so beautiful and this dress also just got marked down to under $60! My only complaint about this dress is that it is a bit short. I am 5’8″ and it is shorter than most dresses I am comfortable in. This is a common theme for English Factory dresses…I just wish they would make a “tall” version or add about two inches to their dresses!
In the summertime, I am a sucker for dresses. Living in Texas, the heat can be overwhelming so having a light-weight dress is the most comfortable thing for me to wear. This beautiful wildflower dress is a must-have and is less than $50! I’m also loving this lavender midi dress from Sea. It would be perfect for church, brunch or a romantic date night.
It’s that time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is upon us! While today is just a preview, the actual shopping will begin later this month based on card status.
July 12: Early Access for cardmembers with Icon status.
July 14: Early Access for cardmembers with Ambassador status.
July 16: Early Access for cardmembers with Influencer status.
July 28: Anniversary Sale opens to the general public.
I have been shopping this sale since I was a child and I love stocking up on essentials during it. One thing I always look for during this sale is the Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Body Lotion Pouch. This is my favorite lotion and you will not find it priced lower or at a greater volume than at the Anniversary Sale. I also like to treat myself to a new dress, workout clothes and boots and shoes for Fall.
This is also a great time to stock up on gifts. I always get several sets of candles, pajamas, bathrobes and blankets because they make beautiful gifts and it is great to get them on sale.
What are you shopping for at the Anniversary sale?!
J.Crew is having a major sale this week! By using the code “BestSale” you can get up to an additional 70 percent off of sale styles that are perfect for summer. I stocked up on swimsuits and easy-breezy styles for the hot summer ahead of us.
I’m sure you all know this by now, but I LOVE J.crew. The clothes fit me perfectly and I think they are really well made. That being said, I never buy items there at full-price because they have sales all of the time. Also, if you’re a student like I am, or a teacher, you always get 15 percent off of your purchase so don’t forget to utilize that!
Although it says “end of season sale” most of the clothes included are dresses, swimming suits and summer clothing so it is the perfect time to buy them.
Here are a few new items I’m loving from the sale this week:
Happy Monday, friends!! I am so excited because this week is starting off with one of my favorite sales of the year…the Shopbop sale!! I love this sale because depending on how much you spend, you can save up to 25 percent off of the most beautiful clothes, shoes and accessories!! Here are some of my favorites 🙂
Whether you’re looking to stock up on spring and summer styles or classics you’ve been waiting to splurge on, the Shopbop sale is the perfect time to do it. For the sale, you can save 15 percent when you spend $200+, 20 percent when you spend $500+ and 25 percent when you spend $800+ by using the code STYLE.
Skinny Jeans are apparently out so I needed to look to some other styles for inspiration this spring. Although I’ve loved skinny jeans for more than a decade, I have to agree with my Gen Z friends that there are more flattering styles out there. From Straight leg to mini boot cut, I’m breaking down my five favorite styles for you to try in the denim world this season.
Last year, I fell in love with the Levi 501 jeans that everyone raves about. I’ve also branched out or back to loving flare jeans…I think Veronica Beard does them perfectly and you can get this spring wash for under $100! Mango makes really good jeans too. The washes are a little funky, but for $50 a pair, I think it’s ok to experiment a little.
Are you still wearing skinny jeans or have you too branched out with your denim style?! Leave me a comment and let me know!
Happy Monday, friends! I am so excited because it is officially just one week until my birthday! I know I’m probably too old to feel this way, but I love my birthday and get so excited for it every year. When I was little, I would actually start planning my next birthday immediately after my birthday party that year…it was a little over the top, but that’s who I am!
To kick off my birthday celebrations this year, I’ve created a birthday dreams wish list and decided to giveaway one of my favorite items on the list to one of my lucky followers…a Hill House bath robe! I love this robe because it is super luxurious and has a really fun neon trim around the edges. I have been wearing mine non-stop and can’t wait to give one away!
