Curious About Women’s Cardigans? Here’s How I Style Them!

TGIF everyone! Who else is ready for the weekend? I cannot believe we are almost in the month of August!  Where has the time gone?  I am actually really looking forward to fall and being able to check out the new women’s cardigans that get released around this time.  It is my favorite time of year.  I love layering with boots, scarves, and cardigans.  My cardigan is currently sold out, but keep checking back.  They might restock it soon.

The burnt orange color just screams “fall.”  I have linked a similar one that is also on sale.  My bag looks designer but is only $30.99! My boots are also included in the sale.  They are so warm, cozy, and they are water resistant!! They come in 4 different colors, but today I’m wearing the Chestnut Suede shade.

Wearing women’s cardigans with calf or knee-length boots is one of my favorite ways to style this look, especially with the little heels. If you want to work in more floral this fall, you can definitely work a cardigan over your summer floral dress.

I reached for this gray bag because the woven details in the leather really screamed “fall” to me and it was a nice balance out to the blue, white, and burnt orange colors coming in from the rest of the outfit. When styling cardigans, I always make sure that my accessories give off a boho vibe to match the relaxed nature of the cardigan.

Casual Booties and More Maroon

Hi everyone! Today I wanted to put a spotlight on how I like to style casual booties, which was the perfect transition pieces between summer and fall – and Florida’s “winter.”

My dress is part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  It is currently sold out in all solids, but there are two prints available.  I really like these casual booties.  They are so different than anything I have, and they are extremely comfortable.  They are the perfect warm weather bootie!  It is such a simple outfit that is so easy and put together.

I really differentiate casual booties as a pair that you can just slip on and add some boho elements to any outfit. The heel isn’t too high but it adds just the right amount of lift you’d need! The beautiful cutout details on this pair also catch the eye and add more interest, especially since I paired them with a simple dress.

Jeffrey Campbell is kind of the king of boots and booties, and some of his designs can be a bit out there. This pair is the perfect balance of unique and classic for me!

I think this dress is so wonderfully flowy and comfortable. Wearing it to work is just as appropriate as wearing it to a movie date, in my opinion, and that’s why I love it so much!

Trend Alert: Gingham Skirts

Happy Wednesday! I wanted to talk about how the gingham trend is sticking around and is still a big staple in my wardrobe. This gingham skirt has everything I could ever ask for: the beautiful pattern, of course, but also pockets and that midi length that I love so much. I could go on and on about it.

My skirt is so comfortable and is under $18.  The button detailing that goes down the front of the skirt is something I’ve featured before, and it’s still a great way to add some vintage and flattering charm to a big flowy skirt.  It also came with a brown belt!  I have also linked similar skirts below.

I decided to pair this look with a basic black tank top because I think that less really is more sometimes and I wanted to let the skirt make a statement by itself. My tank comes in four different colors and is also 40% off- no code needed.  It is extremely soft.  I think I may order it in a few other colors.  It is such a great basic for my wardrobe.  celine luggage tote gingham

Okay? Remember when I mentioned that hats are the easiest way to feel like a fashionista? I still absolutely feel that way. There really is something magical about putting on such a classicly feminine outfit and topping it off with a beautiful hat. The entire black and white look is pulled together and elevated by just using a hat as an accessory.

Styling this outfit with my Celine Luggage was also a no-brainer today. Though I think this outfit would look amazing with a bright clutch or cute crossbody, there was just something about carrying a handbag on the crook of your arm that brings on that elegant vibe. Does anyone else agree?

Andi also wanted to make an appearance and show off her ridiculously cute baby tutu! We’re still working on getting her 1st birthday pictures up so stay tuned!

The Unconventional Pinstripe Dress

Hello everyone! I hope you all made it through Monday.  I didn’t think it would ever end!  I couldn’t wait to get home and squeeze Andi as soon as I was off work.  She has become obsessed with the new Disney Princess movie, Elena of Avalor.  She sings along everytime the commercial comes on.  Anthony and I cannot wait to take her to Disney for the first time!  She is going to be fascinated.

Today I am wearing a pinstripe dress I got from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and, as promised, I wanted to give you guys a closer look at the Michele watch I also got from the #nsale!

To me, this dress is super unique. It’s has a subtle pinstripe pattern but the flowing material is what really makes it stand out to me. The long sleeves and bow add a lot of femininity to this outfit and I feel like they also bring in a vintage element to this dress as well. As usual, anything that is complex in style catches my eye because I know it can be dressed up or down easily.

dvf nordstrom anniversary sale pinstripe dress

I especially love this dress because it is a monochrome dress but is unique in the sense that the pinstripes aren’t as obvious as some other styles are. I think this helped pair the dress with my white strappy sandals and black and white purse to bring the entire look together.

I got this Michele watch during the Nordstrom anniversary sale and ended up buying this brown leather band because I wasn’t a huge fan of how the original one looked on me. Getting different bands is a great way to change up the look of your watch without having to buy an entirely new one, so I was glad to pick up this new option!

Family Photos and Today’s OOTD: The Emerald Green Dress

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a great weekend.  It went by pretty quickly for me.  We were able to take Andi’s 1st birthday invitation photos, and I am giving you a sneak peek!  Her tutu is from WrareDoll.  They have the cutest things on their site. Andi got another tutu playsuit in blue and a basic skirt for when she gets a little bigger.  I cannot believe that I am actually planning her first birthday.  This year has absolutely flown by!  I’ve tried to read If I Could Keep You Little to her but I cannot even make it past the first two pages without sobbing.  Anthony usually has to finish the book with her.  But really… If I COULD keep her little, I would.

My dress is unfortunately sold out but I will link a few similar ones at the bottom of this post.  It can also be worn off the shoulder which is very much on trend right now.

Keep scrolling for our gallery and the sneak peek of Andi’s 1st birthday photos!

I love wearing my Luggage tote by Celine on any occasion I can, but today was the perfect day because I needed the extra space to carry a few of Andi’s things while also dressing up this outfit!

Fall Fashion: Wearing Floral Throughout the Year

Happy Saturday!! Today I wanted to showcase a bit more fall fashion and show you a few more things that I got in the Nordstrom anniversary sale!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing.  They even restocked some things yesterday; like these AG jeans, which is really great since they’re in such high demand right now. Unfortunately, my dress is currently sold out, but hopefully, they will restock it too.  It’s a great color and a fun way to wear a floral print in the fall.  My sandals are on sale for $75 from $250!  They are so comfortable and go with almost everything in my closet.

I like to recycle items from my closet, and from other seasons, into new outfits so you’ll see the sandals I’m wearing are a perfect summer-to-fall transition and they add a bit of sophistication to this outfit thanks to those metallic heels.

This is also the hat I got from the Nordstrom anniversary sale and I think it’ll be making many appearances this year, mostly because wearing a wide brim hat just makes me feel like the ultimate fashionista! Seriously, try wearing one with a dress, sunglasses, and heels.

I think a big key to these fall fashion outfits is the jewelry and accessories you choose to pair with your outfit. Floral is already very feminine, and the burgundy color of this dress checks off the “fall colors” box for me. For this look, I wanted to mix a bit of gold with some sparkle, so these dangle earrings were a perfect choice.  My earrings are still in stock and under $18!

As the weather continues to change, you can style this dress with tights and booties, as well as a cute peacoat, for the ultimate year-round look. Thanks for stopping by!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and the Military Jacket

Happy Friday! It’s finally here! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to everyone!  There are some amazing fall pieces in the sale, so be sure to check it up and get ready for the switch in seasons.

Today, I’m wearing this Madewell jacket that is only $78.90 but it’ll go back up to $118 after the sale.  My bag is over $100 off during the sale too! I love the burgundy color, but it also comes in black.

I haven’t taken a photo yet, but I bought this Michele Watch from the sale, and it is honestly my favorite purchase.  You can see it a bit in the next photo but, honestly… I didn’t love the silicone straps that come with it, so I also purchased a couple different leather straps I can change out!

These booties are the cutest ones I found at the Nordstrom anniversary sale; the color is amazing and will go with everything!!  These also come in black.

We should also talk about military jackets! They’re huge this season and it looks like a little bit of 90s grunge will be making its way into the closets of many of us this year! You can make these masculine jackets a bit more feminine by wearing it with delicate jewelry and heels to balance out the jacket.

Styling an Everyday Button Down Shirt Dress

Happy Hump Day! I was so happy to score this button down shirt dress from Rachel Parcell’s clothing line.  It is extremely comfortable and so easy to wear.  It truly is an “everyday dress,” especially because it has pockets, which I love, and is lightweight.

Wearing all black is never really a bad thing, but today I wanted to break things up by pairing this dress with a light beige bag with gold hardware to complement the rest of my ensemble.

Valentino Rockstuds are a massive trend that’s beloved by many fashion bloggers, so I was excited to find this pair that’s both affordable and inspired by the Rockstud collection.

I call this an everyday dress because of the length as well, since you all know how I feel about midi dresses! I think they’re so great for a day at the park, an afternoon out, or even a casual evening date.

Andi turned 11 months old yesterday, so I need to start finalizing her 1st birthday party plans.  If anyone has any cute ideas for a one year old’s party, please feel free to comment below.  I am open for suggestions!

Shopping Nordstrom’s #nsale

Happy Monday!! It’s that time of year again an the Nordstrom Sale (#nsale) is here!

I am thrilled to share with you my first look I got from the Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access Sale !  My dress comes in two prints and is only $35.90!  It will go back up to $54.95 when the sale is over.  The boots I am wearing also come in black.  They are probably the cutest booties in the sale!  I couldn’t resist myself when I saw that this hat was part of the sale.   I am going to be able to wear it with so many things this fall!

I was also so lucky to snag the last one of these bags at my Nordstrom.  It came in three colors but currently black is the only option available online.  It looks beautiful in black and I have considered purchasing that one as well.  It is so roomy and holds all of my things without having to lug a huge tote around.  I didn’t get a good picture of my earrings, which are also a part of the sale, but will get a close up for you this week.  They are gorgeous in person and you can’t beat the price for only $17.90!

Keep scrolling to see a gallery of one outfit I put together from my Nordstrom Sale bag!
