October Instagram Roundup

(FEATURED IMAGE) T-SHIRT || JEANS SHORTS || CONVERSE

It’s crazy to think that it’s already November! October flew by and we’re already into my birthday month. I can’t believe we’re now 1 month away from Christmas! So here is my recap for October. I’m giving y’all outfit details, and quick links for my October Insta posts. Also, don’t forget that you can find me @lolanicoleblogs on the free 21Buttons app and that way you can shop all my outfits with a quick click without waiting for a blog post to go live.


MUSTARD OVERSIZED SWEATER DRESS || SLOUCHY RIDING BOOTS || USE CODE LXLOLA FOR $ OFF YOUR EXTENSIONS

This is one of my favorite dress styles ever! They’re so comfortable and loose. Oversized anything is all the rage right now so this is definitely on trend right now. This dress is TTS so you can get your regular size and it should fit oversized enough.


T-SHIRT || LEGGINGS || MULES || CLEAR LENS GLASSES || PHONE CASE

I love me some leggings. My How To Dress Up Leggings Series on the blog should give that away, lol. This outfit is one of my favs because it’s so quick and easy to put together. The leggings are some of my favorite basic jersey leggings from Old Navy and my t-shirt is A New Day brand from Target. These tees are so comfy and affordable, only $8!! My mules add a more pulled together look with ease and are also from Target.


V-NECK T-SHIRT || LAYERED CHOKER || NAMEPLATE NECKLACE || MATTE LIPSTICK

I love layering necklaces and this one from Mystic Rose Jewelry is perfect for that. It already has a layering element so you can add another necklace with it for an instant layering effect. Plus both of my necklaces come in a Silver or Gold option. You can use my code LOLA10 for 10% off your order at Mystic Rose.


LIPSTICK || EYELINER || EYEBROW PENCIL || EYESHADOW PALETTE

I received this box from Influenster and Joah Beauty and I’m loving the makeup. I especially love the lipstick. It’s a matte formula and the color is the perfect neutral everyday nude color. The shadows are so smooth and buttery and I’m loving the eyebrow pencil. I would definitely check them out. They are available exclusively at your local CVS stores.


T-SHIRT || SIMILAR PANT OPTIONS || NIKE SLIDES

I love camo, it’s one of my favorite prints. I’ve had these cargo pants for so long I have no idea where they’re from now, lol. I will link a few similar options. My top is one of my favorite basic tees from the A New Day brand available at Target. My slides are mens nike slides, I wear a size 8 in mens because it’s a size 9 in women’s. They run TTS but are a little tight when they’re brand new so you will have to wear them a few times to loosen them up.


T-SHIRT || FRUIT OF THE LOOM ZIP HOODIE || FRUIT OF THE LOOM JOGGER SWEATPANTS || OLD SKOOL VANS

I love these Fruit of the Loom sets. I seriously run to Walmart every year they’re put out. They’re so comfortable and still look stylish without breaking the bank. They’re in the men’s section (yes, I love mens clothing when I want a good oversized, comfy fit, lol.) My ASPCA Vans I purchased last Christmas so they’re no longer available but I will link some similar.


AURIEL BLACK JOGGER JUMPER KNITTED LOUNGE SET || DODGE DURANGO GT || NIKE AIR HUARACHE || POM BEANIE

This set is so comfy. It was also surprisingly warm and feels like wearing a sweater all over your body. The sweater can be worn off one shoulder or both. The joggers have a drawstring waist and so comfy. This set is TTS.


WENDY’S CAMPAIGN

This was just our cute little Wendy’s campaign. The kids were loving it, lol.


BLOOMING JELLY PLAID PATCHWORK TOP || TALL POWERSTRETCH ST. CLAIR FLARE JEANS || SIMILAR HEELS

This top is my fall feels fav right now. The plaid patchwork detailing is so cute and just adds a cute holiday vibe to this grey slightly oversized top. I sized up to a large for a more oversized fit but the top fits TTS. My jeans are from Alloy Apparel and are some of my fav flare leg jeans and they’re in a size 7 and a 37″ inseam. They’re the tall length. They are really stretchy so you can size down one in these.


FUELED BY CAFFEINE & CHAOS TEE || CAPTAIN OF CHAOS MENS TEE || CHAOS CREW KIDS TEE || DISTRESSED BOYFRIEND STRAIGHT JEANS FOR WOMEN || VANS

Our fun little family day at the Pumpkin Patch was a great opportunity to update some of our family photos. These tees are so cute and from one of my favorite mom shops on Instagram Mom Life Must Haves. My jeans and hubbys Shorts are from Old Navy and the kids jeans were gifts from grandma but I believe they’re all from Old Navy as well.


PRETTYLITTLETHING JOGGER SET || NIKE AIR HUARACHE


BLOOMING JELLY PLAID PATCHWORK TOP || TALL POWERSTRETCH ST. CLAIR FLARE JEANS


PLT CROPPED CAMO SWEATER || PLT CAMO SIDE STRIPE JOGGERS || SNEAKERS (SIRENS IN STORE PURCHASE) NO LINK || SLEEVELESS MOCK NECK BODYSUIT

I love this set. I paired it with a bodysuit to show options for still being able to wear cropped sweaters when you don’t want your tummy out. This set is definitely TTS so I would have sized down one if I wanted it to be really fitting but I wanted it to be a little more loose. Also these can be worn high wasted or at the hip because of the drawstring waist.


TEN SIXTY SHERMAN LONG SLEEVE COWL NECK PULLOVER SWEATER || THEMOGAN WOMEN’S COWL NECK SWEATER || JERSEY LEGGINGS FOR WOMEN || SUNGLASSES

This was the beginning of my How To Dress Up Leggings series. I wanted to show how you can go from running errands in athleisure to drinks with friends or a casual date night outfit without needing to put a whole new outfit on. Pairing a nice tunic sweater with your leggings and then ditching your slides or sneakers for some shoes with a dressier detailing will help add a more put together look to your outfit without too much fuss. I added a pop of color with my pink and rose gold shades for an added touch of fun.


PRETTYLITTLETHING BLACK T-SHIRT DRESS || JEAN JACKET (OLD) || SHOEDAZZLE SNEAKERS || SUNNIES

T-shirt dresses are awesome. They’re so cute and comfy and can be dressed up or down. I usually like to pair mine with a nice jean jacket and some sneakers or slides. Just depends on the days to do list. My jean jacket is from Dresslink (old) but I linked some jean jacket options on the 21Buttons app under @lolanicoleblogs and these sneakers are from Shoedazzle, they have the cutest shoes and so many different options and styles.


DAY-TO-DAY POCKET DRESS || PLT CROPPED CAMO JACKET || SAUCONY JAZZ ORIGINAL VINTAGE ||

This Day-to-Day Pocket Dress is from Modest Shopping and the best part about it is the material doesn’t wrinkle ever. So no need to break out the steamer, lol.

 
JJ BEAN CLASSIC COWLNECK CASHMERE SWEATER || LATTICE-HEM ANKLE LEGGINGS FOR WOMEN || LACE UP OVER THE KNEE BOOTS || STEVE MADDEN BJADA BLACK


JED FASHION WOMEN’S CHUNKY CABLE KNIT TURTLENECK SWEATER || THEMOGAN WOMEN’S COWL TURTLE NECK SWEATER || LATTICE-HEM ANKLE LEGGINGS FOR WOMEN || WOMEN’S TASSLE POINTED MULES


FUELED BY CAFFEINE & CHAOS TEE || DISTRESSED BOYFRIEND STRAIGHT JEANS || SLIP ON VANS

Pumpkin Patch fun in one of my favorite mom tees.


TEN SIXTY SHERMAN LONG SLEEVE COWL NECK PULLOVER SWEATER || HOW TO: DRESS UP LEGGINGS

I spend my life in the car, lol. #momlife right? LOL


RIBBED LINGERIE BODYSUIT || MID-RISE PIXIE JACQUARD ANKLE PANTS FOR WOMEN || HOW TO: HOLIDAY PANTS

When you don’t want to wear a dress or deal with an uncomfortable outfit all night for a holiday get together or party, than some statement holiday dress pants are what you need in your wardrobe.


PRETTYLITTLETHING BLACK T-SHIRT DRESS || SNEAKERS || LONGLINE DISTRESSED DENIM JACKET


PLT BASIC KHAKI V NECK T-SHIRT DRESS || PLT GREEN CROPPED CAMO TRUCKER JACKET


MID-RISE PIXIE FULL-LENGTH PANTS FOR WOMEN || SLEEVELESS MOCK NECK BODYSUIT || WOMEN’S ANOTOINETTE WOVEN TASSLE POINTED MULES – A NEW DAY™ BLACK


LATTICE-HEM ANKLE LEGGINGS FOR WOMEN || LACE UP BOOTS || SHORT SLEEVE SWEATER OPTION

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.

I Love Being in my #UnderWhere

I love comfort. Anyone who knows me knows I like to dress up but what I love even more is dressing down, lol. Find me a comfortable pair of cute sweats or joggers and I’m all set. I also don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to find a cute and equally comfortable set. Which is why I will run straight to Walmart and go for the Fruit of the Loom sets. I love their zip up jackets and drawstring waist joggers. They’re in the mens section which I also love because I like for my jogger sets to fit a little loose rather than clinging to my body. The best part is they’re so affordable. You really can’t go wrong with these sets. Especially if you’ve been eyeing those cute sets in the mall for double and triple the price.

These sets are under $25 for the jacket and joggers together, they’re a great material as well. Thick enough to keep you warm and cozy but thin enough when the weather is a little warmer than expected. Walmart has really been stepping up their clothing game and these jogger sets are no exception. Run and grab some sets while you can, they come in over 4 colors but they sell out quick.

O U T F I T – D E T A I L S:
Fruit of the Loom Men’s Dual Defense EverSoft Fleece Full Zip Hooded Sweatshirt
Fruit of the Loom Men’s Dual Defense EverSoft Jogger Sweatpants
Women’s Any Day V-Neck Short Sleeve T-Shirt – A New Day™

FIT TIPS:
-Sneakers can run a bit small. I’m wearing a 9 but I would have sized up to a 9.5 or 10.
-Jogger Sets run TTS. I’m wearing a size Small in the joggers and zip up hoodie.

I hope this post was helpful in finding you a cute and affordable jogger set that won’t break the bank but you still look super cute like you just left the mall. If you download the 21 Buttons app and then find me @lolanicoleblogs I posted this suit with a direct shop link and then I tagged a few other options as well.

Master Bedroom Makeover for under $1800

I’m so excited for this post. I have been wanting to get new bedroom furniture forever and we just kept putting it off. But I’m so glad we finally took the plunge and did it. Even though it was mainly me to my husband like “Ok, so this is happening like now, lol.” My bedroom is a bit more modern and bright than my livingroom which you will see in my livingroom revamp post soon because I love so many different styles I wanted to make every room something fun and different to walk into. 

What’s even better is we were able to revamp our room for under $1800. I know to some that may seem like a lot as well but before we started I spent 2 weeks putting together a vision board, looking at other room ideas, choosing furniture, etc. what I learned was just finding furniture that’s pretty, functional and still inexpensive can be done. Because any sort of home decor redo can definitely put your budget high if you aren’t shopper savvy. Just by having my husband powdercoat our dresser and nightstand handles instead of just buying new ones saved us about $40. I also saved money by keeping my floor mirror and office furniture I already had. I shopped around, went to sales, used coupons, etc. whatever you need to do to get your room how you want it for the least expensive is really the main goal. 

I went with a white base (furniture) and then added in some mustard yellow, grey, gold, silver and navy blue. So it has a feminine touch but still some masculinity to it. Don’t want the hubs to feel left out in his own bedroom, lol. The ikea dressers we went with are a new design at ikea and they came just in time for our revamp. The original handle were black but we powdercoated them silver to match the lamps. (A little ikea hack for you, lol) I shopped at At home, Target, Ikea and American Freight. We haven’t added any pictures yet because I want to find some that match the decor better than the photos we had up previously. I will make a post once I find the perfect ones.

Below is the before and after of our room. Just rearranging your furniture can give your room a whole new feel. We wanted to create more space and a more open feel in our room as well and just by changing the colors in our room and moving the bed and things around made it feel like our master bedroom was so much larger than it really is. Just by going from dark furniture to a white and silver theme with pops of color gave it a larger, more bright and clean flow. If you’d like a more in depth post of how I saved $1500 while still buying basically all new bedroom furniture than please leave a comment and I will definitely get that post up for you because I love helping others save money while still being able to decorate, have amazing decor and live comfortably.
