One of my friends gave me this cold shoulder ruffle blouse. As soon as I saw it I knew that I wanted to feature it on the blog. My Mom picked the location for the shoot. In summary I look good only because of my Mom and my sweet friend.
Cold shoulder tops have been around for a while. They’re easy to wear during winter (when a girl gets tired of sweaters). Most of them are a little on the dressy side. All of the styles I mention in this post are on sale. This blouse is most like the one I’m wearing. I like the color of this one . If you aren’t afraid to wear prints, this one is for you. Here’s a similar style in white and then this one is available in blue or pink .
My shoes aren’t available anymore but I was able to find two similar styles that I would loveee to have in my closet. This pair is from the same designer, and these are a little over the top. Bows on bows. One last thing. You can find the pants from the pic here .
My embellished sweater from Anthropologie is 20% off today!! You can find it online here .
I thought I would go through the sale and share my favorite sweaters and tops (all are on sale today at Anthropologie).
Sweaters: This sweater looks like something I would wear. Such an easy piece to pair with leggings . I think this wrap sweater would be perfect for date night. Then turn it around for a day at the office. You know I love pink ! I’m torn between this pink Anthro sweater and a similar one from Shopbop.
Tops: I think that this top would be such a great piece to have on hand for holiday parties! This black and white blouse could be worn year round. How adorable is this silk bow blouse ?
You can find my sweatshirt here .
It’s available in blush here , and there are a few more sizes available in white here . I also saw that’s it’s on sale at Dillard’s here . I have to mention my favorite hair stylist in Dallas, Darlene, because she is the reason my hair looks so great in this pic. If only I could have her style my hair every day!! She’s so talented. Hope y’all have a happy Friday!
I’m going to share three items that I have my eye on, and duplicates of each item. I’m not the kind of girl who has Chanel and Tom Ford in the closet, which is why I have to find more affordable options of designer pieces.
First up is this DVF sweater . I posted it last week on my Insta stories. I think it would be perfect with grey slacks, faded jeans, or even white pants. Such a cute take on a casual outfit, and a bit more interesting than your plain old tan sweater. The more affordable option is this Alice + Olivia sweater that’s on sale.
The second item on this week’s list is this Marc Jacobs top . How adorable are those pearls? I want it in the cream color, but based on availability it looks like the black option has been more popular. I found a look a like item from H&M . Another possibility is this sweater from Zara .
The last item for this week is a pair of pearl earrings. I’ve heard that these are great. These aren’t your typical pearl earrings but they’re adorable. I have a few pairs of earrings from Francesca’s and I always get so many compliments!
There’s a song on Kelsea Ballerini’s new record called Inbetween. It’s a song about being right in the middle of two seasons in life. This Club Monaco tank is a great piece for this in-between weather when you can’t really wear your summer tops but it’s not cold enough for lots of layers. This tank feels like a sweater and it is so soft! The only thing I own that’s softer is this coat . I wasn’t 100% sure about grey, but when I realized how soft it was I thought I should give it a try. I’m glad I did. I like to wear this tank with faded denim jeans or cream colored dress pants.
Happy Friday friends! I hope everyone is having a great week. The temperature in Texas dropped to forty degrees and I can finally wear some of my cute coats. Teddy bear coats are in style this year and I am completely on board! They’re so cozy and warm! It’s kind of like a blanket that’s socially acceptable to wear around town lol. You can use this link to shop my teddy bear coat . There are more sizes available here and here . The color I’m wearing is called Oatmeal. It’s also available in Black and Copper. I thought it was a fun alternative to my usual long coats. This one is a little more on the casual side, yet not so college (like a Northface or Columbia). Last time I checked they still had some available in store here at NorthPark Mall in Dallas. Just go see how soft it is and I’m telling you, you’ll be sold.
I was able to find a few more Teddy Bear coats that aren’t Free People. Like this one . And just for fun (only in my dreams do I wear brands like this) but look at this pink one and this Tom Ford coat too! They’re so fun. Y’all have a great day : )
This week has been one of those weeks where nothing has really gone as planned. So this post will fall in line with that theme. I originally was going to post three pricey items that I have my eye on, and affordable options for each one. You can barely tell the difference. Which is the coolest thing ever. I’ll share that post next week.
Real Life: Right now I’m watching the CMA Awards and eating milk chocolate chocolate chips. Kelsea Ballerini is performing. Gosh she’s gorgeous. I’ve had some of her songs on repeat this week. Roses. High School. Peter Pan. I Hate Love Songs. Miranda Lambert is also one of my favs. A few of my other go to songs this week have been from her latest record: To Learn Her & Pushin Time.
Some things don’t really go as planned, like this post. The post for Friday is amazzzzing. Hopefully it will make up for this unplanned post about my bad week. I hope y’all like it and I hope you’re having a great week.
I hope y’all aren’t tired of hearing about sweaters. I know that I’ve been talking about them nonstop, but it’s only because my winter wardrobe was basically nonexistent. I have been looking at sweaters online for over a month, and then sharing my absolute favorites with you guys.
The star of the show for today’s post is this sweater with the baby flowers. I scooped it up when Anthropologie was having their 25% off anniversary sale. The reviews were solid, the sale started, and you know the rest. It’s still available in every single size online (woohoo!!) so get to shopping. I ordered a size Small. This sweater is true to size. None of that oversized look going on over here (thank goodness). I paired it with my dark denim jeans and my suede over the knee boots for a casual weekend look. You can find my purse here . On a somewhat unrelated note...look at these boots !! I would love to pair this Anthro sweater with boots like that, to create an unexpected color palette.
First things first. New hair style, hello : ) I’ll be sharing details soon, so stay tuned : )
This grey sweater is less than $40, I wanted to let you know about it before it sells out. I’m thinking about ordering it in pink as well. I mean it’s pink. I kinda have to : ) I love it when an item online has a ton of reviews. The more the better. Especially with sweaters, which aren’t all as soft and cozy as they look online. The number of reviews for this sweater is greater than the price, which doesn’t happen very often.
I also have my eye on this sweater , which is a less expensive version of the Marc Jacobs sweater for fall. This sky blue cashmere sweater is also on sale. One last thing...all sweaters are 20% off today at Club Monaco
. Happy Friday my friends! Hope yall have a wonderful day!
