Plaid Patchwork Top


PLAID PATCHWORK TOP
TALL POWERSTRETCH ST. CLAIR FLARE JEANS

Long Sleeve Shirt Plaid Affair

First of all I love Fall! With this top I get all the fall feels, especially in anything plaid. There is nothing I love more and I try and wear it year round honestly, lol. It’s one of my favorite prints. Thank goodness plaid is still a trend this fall too!

So when I got this adorable grey plaid patchwork top in the mail from Blooming Jelly, I couldn’t wait to shoot in it. It’s not too thick and not too thin. It can be worn with or without a jacket and has the perfect thickness for layering with a jacket or cardigan. If you aren’t sold on it yet then the UNDER $20 price tag should do the trick! ;0)

My jeans are from Alloy Apparel and are the best. Most noteworthy is that they fit so well and best of all they come in tall length too. I’m wearing a size 7 and the 37” inseam length. They are also low rise and the denim isn’t restricting and has a good amount of stretch to them. So I definitely recommend grabbing a pair because they’re under $70 and so good.

FIT TIPS:
-Jeans are TTS but have a little stretch if you get a size that’s a size smaller. I’m wearing a size 7 and 37” inseam.
-Top runs TTS. I’m wearing a size Large for a more loose and oversized fit.

Sizing Reference:
I’m 5’8″. Typically wear 9-9.5 in shoes and a size 10 if they run small. M/L in tops and dresses. 6-8 in Jeans depending on make and brand.

So what are your favorite prints of the season? What print do you go for most while shopping? I’m also loving leopard and camo print. Let me know in the comments below.

How To: Dress Up Leggings

I love leggings! Athleisure is one of my favorite clothing styles and I’m so glad it’s style is still going strong. But sometimes you need to dress things up but have no time to change into a whole new outfit. So I put together an outfit styled with basic Jersey Leggings from Old Navy to show how everyday leggings can be worn out for drinks or a casual date night.

I paired these Old Navy Jersey Leggings for Women with a black long sleeve cowl neck sweater (link) and Black Women’s Karoline Backless Loafer Mules – A New Day. The sleekness of the sweater and the silver studded detail on the mules add dressier touches to the leggings and make what would normally be a very casual outfit fit for an evening out after running errands during the day.

I’ve linked a few other sweater and legging options because my sweater is currently sold out.

Nordstrom Ten Sixty Sherman Long Sleeve Cowl Neck Pullover Sweater
L.L. Bean Classic Cashmere Sweater, Cowlneck
TheMogan Women’s Cowl Turtle Neck Cable Knit Pullover Sweater Long Tunic Jumper
Women’s Heather Dark Grey Jersey Leggings
Women’s Karoline Backless Loafer Mules – A New Day™ Black
Sunnies

FIT TIPS:
-Leggings are TTS but have good stretch. I’m wearing a size medium.
-Sweater runs TTS. I’m wearing a size Medium.
-Mules run TTS but I’m wearing a size 10 because there were no size 9.5 left.


Sizing reference:
I’m 5’8″. Typically wear 9-9.5 in shoes and a size 10 if they run small. M/L in tops and dresses. 6-8 in Jeans depending on make and brand.

August Instagram Recap

I can’t believe it’s September already babes! I’m going to be so busy this month, especially since both the girls birthdays are in September and 2 days apart. Double the parties, presents and fun (for the kids at least, lol) I’m back again to round up all of my August IG Posts for y’all to make it easier to find and shop everything in one place. This will help if you happen to miss when something is posted you can find it all here for that month. I also have been posting more things in the highlights of my Instagram so if you ever have questions about an outfit or something in a picture I post you can check there or just head back to my blog on the 1st Friday of every month to get a recap. As I said in my last post, Instagram changed the algorithm once again! They make your feed based on exactly what they “think” you want to see by who and what you engage with now. So remember to keep engaging with my photos (likes and comments) and watch my stories so my posts keep showing up in your feed. ;0)

In August I finally settled on a preset for my pictures that I think will make for a great fluent and brighter feed so I’m excited about that one. I also am getting the hang of planning as you can see from my last Plan With Me post so I think I will continue to get better at being more organized and planning things out better for a much smoother running month. There was also a pretty awesome giveaway posted on my Instagram last month so if you aren’t already following me head over to my Instagram and hit that blue button so you don’t miss out on the next one coming up.

The Romper You Need This Summer

I’ve been loving striped clothing lately. Such a nautical and summery style. This off the shoulder romper gives such a cute and flirty style while still being casual enough for day to day errands. You’ll notice on my blog I go for not only functionality and comfort but how well my outfits work while wrangling kids all day, lol.

I’m always a little skeptical when ordering online or even buying rompers in-store because I don’t know how they will fit since I am tall. I’ve had some rompers that were literal underwear on me, lol. (So disappointing for us tall girls) but this romper fit so well I was surprised. It’s not too short in the bottoms so it covers my butt. I don’t feel uncomfortable or like everything is hanging out. The material has a little stretch but still fits nicely.

You can wear it with so many options, sneakers for a casual vide, sandals for a little more casual cute or heels for a night out. I’m currently on the hunt for the perfect black heel that goes with everything. But I paired this one with 2 sneaker options for a more casual feel.

Best Summer Dress 2018

I love off the shoulder dresses. I love even more when the color makes my complexion pop. So it was a no brainer that I ordered this when I saw it on Lauras Boutique website. This mustard yellow Aria dress is perfect for that fresh deep tan. I love mustard and gold tones on a deeper skin tones. It’s rich color and ruffle top make it much more dressed up and flirty without even trying. It’s a flowy material which is perfect if you’re out in the Florida sun like I am on a daily. It’s loose, slight stretch fit makes it comfortable to wear, it just falls over your body effortlessly.

What makes this dress even better is its price. Only $17! I styled mine with my white and gold Chuck Taylors to add a more casual vibe. My tan faux leather crossbody bag is the cutest thing and fits my essentials when I don’t want to carry a backpack or large purse for the day. My clear lens frames are adorable and ONLY $5!

Is It Fall Yet? Fall Outfit Inspiration!

I know, I know it’s still summer and I live in Florida. But I was born during a blizzard in Iceland and then lived up north for some years before landing in Florida and I’ve experienced all the seasons. My favorite seasons are Spring and Fall because you literally only need a light jacket or cute fall outfit and you’re good to go, it’s not too hot and not too cold. (Name that movie line reference, lol) Literally perfect weather.

With all the Nordstrom sale fun I decided to change things up a bit and style a fall outfit to shoot. (I took one for the team because OMG it was hot outside, lol.) But I’m in love with this oversized sweater dress from Pretty Little Thing it’s not too heavy in material so it can be layered or worn alone for a light fall look. You can also mix it up and wear it with sneakers instead of boots but I was in a fall mood so I had to wear my knee high boots.

My boots are so comfortable and versatile. They can be worn with dresses, skirts, shorts and even over jeans. I’ve had them for years and they still look and feel great. My bag is the perfect fall tote and I love its oversized style. Perfect for all my snacks I’ll need while I’m running around like crazy this school year. I can even fit a bottle of wine in there. That’s right I checked, you’re welcome. 😉

Flirty Blush Pink Style

It’s hot in Florida and I do mean HOT! Yesterday my car read 102 degrees outside temperature (insert gasps for air, lol). I love blush pink. Pink in general has been one of my favorite colors forever. But when I saw this top at Sirens I had to grab it. It’s blush pink and off the shoulder so 2 things I adore, lol. The shorts are from the Time and Tru line at Walmart and they’re so cute and comfy. A mid rise fit with slight distressing in the detail. They have different colors to choose from so you have different options for multiple outfit choices. The best thing out of the whole outfit is how affordable everything was. All together the entire outfit with top, shorts and sneakers included was under $50. I am always here for a bargain especially when I have three kids to chase after and buy for, so when I see a cute outfit for myself that’s both affordable and cute I’ll grab it.

Adventures in Camo

I love a good sale. But like an actual one not like just 10% off because unless it’s a large priced item 10% is really like the tax off on your item to me, lol. But Sirens was having an awesome sale of 40% off the entire store so I had to jump in. Being a mom of 3 if I do actually get myself something it’s rare because I always end up getting things for my kids instead (which I ended up getting some things for my oldest daughter too, lol) and completely forget about myself. But I’ve been trying to revamp my wardrobe and be a little more comfortable in my mom bod until I can get back in the gym. So I wanted to get a few cute things to wear.

I got this outfit because it’s stylist but still comfy. I love dresses, especially in spring and summer time because they’re easy to put on and you don’t have to worry about putting an outfit together. It’s one piece and you just get dressed and go. I could throw a jacket, cardigan or duster on over it and style it how I want. This cropped and distressed camo jacket is so cute and it’s stretchy material made it comfortable to wear.

My bag is from avenue and it’s so cute and easy to carry. I can put the things I need in it but don’t have a big bag I have to carry around with me. My sneakers from Sirens are so comfy and cute. I actually picked them up in 3 different colors. But black sneakers are a must for me because they go with literally everything. I think the gold detailing adds a trendy touch to them as well.

What are some sales you couldn’t pass up this past month? Where’s your favorite trendy and affordable places to shop? I hope you loves have an awesome Monday.

Live In Jeans 

I could literally live in a comfy pair of jeans. Easy to style, comfy and they fit well. It’s like a dream. Especially for me because I have long legs and a little bubble butt so it’s hard to find jeans that have a good fit at the top and bottom, lol. 
  

So when I discovered Fashion Nova  after many, many other people kept talking about them. I decided why not try them out, lol. These boyfriend jeans are literally everything. I’m pretty sure I’m going to purchase another pair because they are just so awesome. They fit well. They are loose but not baggy and they are the soft lived in distressed denim that I love. 
  

My sneakers are awesome too. I got these from Just Fab and I love them. They are just my style and they come in white too. My bodysuit is from Forever 21 and I’m loving bodysuits right now because it’s just like having a tucked in shirt without having it ride up or pop out. 

   
   

What’s your favorite comfy style to wear? Do you prefer heels or sneakers with it? For me it all depends on the outfit and where I’m going. But for hump day, these boyfriend jeans, sneakers and a plain black top work just fine for me. I hope you are having an awesome Wednesday. We are halfway through the week. WOO HOO!!
