Falling for Flares

Rag & Bone Flares - c/o Marshalls
Blouse - Zara

I'm not sure about you, but if there's one item that I'm totally a sucker for...it's jeans! But I can never bring myself to spend a few hundred dollars on a pair, because of course I like designer brands and those cost a pretty penny. This is why I scour the jean racks every time I hit up Marshalls. Designer denim is worth the hunt -- you can't beat the fit, wash, and quality of a high-end pair! Marshalls is my serious go-to spot for jeans. You can be confident knowing you will spot your favorite brand and even walk out with a few new favorites (usually under $50!). Case in point - these distressed, flared beauties by Rag & Bone. I mean, come on! I have a weakness for flares and this happens to be my first distressed pair and they've quickly moved to the top of jean stack. Plus, they were only $25 -- you really can't beat that!

Activities To Outfits – How We Keep Fall Exciting

Friday, September 16, 2016

We’re transitioning to fall with cozy layers, indoor activities, and lots of snuggles!

All outfits and toys - c/o Marshalls

With summer coming to an end and the weather getting cooler, we are slowly transitioning our wardrobe and playtime for fall. Uriah and I headed to our favorite spot-Marshalls. I always stop here for toys and books for my little guy, especially because they have some of my favorite, eco-friendly toys. Plus, they’re always significantly less than retail store, but still current and high-quality! Once summer ends, the sun sets much sooner and I’m always looking for toys or activities to keep Uriah entertained. The toy/activity selection at Marshalls is always so full of options, so I knew we would leave with some great items! We picked out colorful wood-grain building blocks for only $16.99 compare at $24.99, a ocean themed puzzle set on clearance for $6.00, and a bright blue backpack for carrying all our goodies. We also picked out a few new books when we were in the checkout line. If you’re a book lover or you have a book worm (like I do!), Marshalls is THE spot for children books! They carry so many popular titles and authors, that you will be sure to leave with a new or old favorite.

Another important transition is our fall wardrobe! With Uriah growing so quickly, I like to get as much wear out of his items as I can! With that being said, I love to add accessories or layers to summer looks to get them ready for fall. For Uriah’s summer outfit we scored a pair of skinny jeans, designer sandals, and a striped top for under $25! Budget friendly and for just $9.99 more, I was able to add a soft thermal hoodie as a layer for extra warmth for those cooler months. For my look, I started with a cute base- a turtleneck dress by Free People scored for only $29.99 with a killer asymmetrical hemline. I’ve already received so many compliments on this beautiful basic and knew it would be the perfect transition piece for my fall wardrobe. I swapped my summer sandals for suede Dolce Vita booties (scored for only $69.99 compare at $120) and layered an embroidered Free People denim jacket (another amazing Marshalls find!) over the dress for my transition layer. 

Thanks to Marshalls, we are now ready for cooler weather and lots of fun indoor activities.

Floral Trouser

Floral Trouser - Zara
Cropped Blouse & Schutz Heels - c/o Marshalls

I can't resist a good pair of wide leg pants, so when I spotted this cute floral pair it was a done deal. I added my favorite cropped blouse from Marshalls and the tallest platforms I own for some added height. I cant wait to transition these pants into my fall wardrobe with a cute turtleneck or chunky sweater and of course, a leather jacket. I have a fun post headed your way so stay tuned!

Thank you for reading!

Summer Uniform

Wednesday, August 3, 2016

Bag - ℅ Marshalls
Blouse - ℅ Prim
High Waisted Shorts - Santa Monica
Heels - Zara

Safe to say, that by now most of us have our own type of "summer uniform." 
The outfit you thrown on in a rush or a fashion rut, the outfit you know will be comfortable and that you feel confident in. This season, I'm all about high waisted cutoffs and some sort of off the shoulder blouse. I absolutely love the cut of off the shoulder blouses- they're feminine, flirty, and just as comfortable as a t-shirt! I usually pair it with flats, because heels at the park isn't the most practical look.   I decided to swap out my flats and wear a pair of bright heels. I scored these on sale at Zara for under $20 and couldn't wait to incorporate them into my summer uniform.  For a casual date with my husband, my woven lace up heels were the perfect, bright accessory and the best way to dress up my look. What's your summer uniform?

Summer Heat

Dress and Schutz Heels -- ℅ Marshalls

With the summer heat comes fiery colors, especially for my wardrobe!
I've been trying to wear dresses a bit more and scored a few amazing ones at Marshalls. I was so surprised to find this amazing red/orange dress for only $29.99! I'm a sucker for a good off the shoulder dress, but I fell on love with the longer length and the feminine tied waist. The longer hemline was such a great contrast to the exposed shoulders and gave the dress a little extra movement- which I absolutely adore! I know I'll be wearing this bright number into fall, maybe layered with a cute leather jacket and felt hat, because dresses like this one deserve to be worn often.
