Jeans | Shoes | Shirt (only $12!) | Necklace
I have been struggling this week, not only because it is the week before a holiday weekend, but also because of my lack of inspiration for work outfits. My office is very causal so this outfit is pretty much the norm of what I wear along with everyone else. I was pretty pleased about how simple but still put together this outfit turned out to be. I was worried it would look a little “waiter” – ish, but I added the lariat necklace and slides which I think helped.
I think the real shinning star of this outfit is the white tee. I have such a hard time finding a white tee that fits well and can stand the test of time. This one checks all my boxes and fits true to size. It is a must have!
Have a great weekend!
You have seen the Gucci Double G belt everywhere. I feel like anytime I open my Instagram I see at least 10 of them in different colors and sizes. While I would love to drop $400 on a belt, that sadly is not in my budget so I found the next best thing.
This Amazon find was a good one. I am so sad that this belt is currently unavailable but I am sure that they will bring it back soon. It is genuine leather and great quality for being under $20. It also has almost 350 reviews with an average of 4 stars.
I highly recommend getting this belt as soon as it comes back in stock. It is such a great cheap alternative to the real trendy thing.
Fri-Yay! So glad that we made it to the weekend! My phone died this week and the weather is going to be horrid but my sister comes in today and we have game night with our friends so I feel like it will even out to be a good week.
I have styled these Spanx leggings on a previous post but I keep reaching for them so I figured I would share them again but styled a little differently. They really are magic leggings and I find that they go with everything.
I paired them with a band t-shirt today and my jean jacket (got mine at Nordstrom Rack awhile ago but want this one). I have about three good band t-shirts and I highly recommend getting yourself one if you don’t have a collection already. They are so casual and cool. They had a few really cute ones at Lucky when I went to the store the other day that were on sale.
I wore this while we were grabbing breakfast and running our Sunday errands and it was the perfect amount of comfortable while still looking put together.
Moral of the story is get yourself some Spanx leggings and a band t-shirt ASAP!
Dress (Medium) | Similar Boots
Quick, get online at the Loft and order this dress! It is perfect for spring with the long sleeves and light weight fabric. I love the button details in the front with the tie around the waist and ruffle details at the shoulder. This dress is perfect for our crisp spring weather here in Colorado. I can see myself wearing this well into the summer and fall with these great transitional colors.
The best part of this dress is that it is only around $45 (with all sizes still available) and fits true to size.
With spring finally making its debut I thought it would be the perfect time to review my Burberry jacket. Since it is a light jacket I find myself reaching for it a lot more during these brisk spring mornings.
I had this jacket on my wish list for a while and it wasn’t until I found it on sale and had gift cards that I finally made the purchase. It was literally like the trifecta of shopping and I just couldn’t not get it, however this jacket is a huge investment.
I chose this lighter canvas color because I thought it was a good neutral that would go with everything and I already had a black leather jacket. I love this color and I am pretty careful with it so I haven’t had any issues with it showing dirt or having any stains.
I stayed true to size with the medium and it does fit me well and I am able to button it all the way up with some room to spare. The only issue I have is the boxy fit of it. The material is pretty stiff so it keeps its boxy shape, which for me is not that flattering. The sleeves are also a little short on me. While I could unroll the sleeves I really like the pop of plaid that it has when cuffed so I leave it as is and just ignore the shorter length.
Like I said this jacket is defiantly an investment piece, so if you were like me and just had to have it, then I would say wait for one of Nordstrom’s big sales as I have seen it marked down during that time. I would also recommend trying on a lot of different styles (which I failed to do) to see what style fits you best. This jacket is not made for all seasons and can really only be worn in those warmer spring or fall days so it is not the most versatile, however it is a classic piece that I know I will have for years to come.
Happy Monday! Hope your weekend was full of fun.I decided to bust out the Madewell Overalls on Sunday. I have heard that many people size down but I decided to stick with my regular size medium and I like the fit. There are also some dupes out there that look very similar for a fraction of the price (here).
Styling my overalls has been somewhat of a challenge but I really like them with this floral Forever 21 shirt (similar options here and here). I also really love pairing them with my Franco Sarto booties. These booties go with so much and are the perfect color. I wear them all the time. And they are on major sale so score!
I have been a die hard Lululemon fan for years. Convinced that there were no other leggings and work out gear that would match Lulu’s quality, so I wouldn’t even consider other brands. Then I got an Athleta gift card.
I received a $50 gift card and thought that I would for sure be able to find some things especially on sale. Well I was quickly proven wrong when I noticed that their price point is right in line with Lululemon which was surprising from a brand that is connected with Old Navy and the Gap.
I was able to find this t-shirt and leggings. They were having a sale so I received an extra 20% off of sale price which brought this entire outfit to right around $60.
As far as the leggings go, I need high waisted which these are. I noticed that as I was doing more jumping around or burpees that they did tend to fall down and I had to adjust them a lot. I did however like that that whatever material they are made out of does not attract dog hair which was a plus. I highly recommend sizing down in these. I bought a small and I am usually a medium or 6.
The shirt is really nice. The material is soft and long enough to slightly cover your back side. I also bought a small in this one.
All in all I was not blown away with Athleta and would honestly probably stick with Lululemon, especially since Athleta’s price point is the same. Had Athleta came in with a lower price point I would probably convert.
Happy Monday! I got lucky and have the day off for Presidents Day so Charlie and I are snuggled up on the couch trying to stay warm while watching Will and Grace re-runs 🙂
Before the chilly weather rolled in G and I decided to head out to Broadway street to check out some of the antique shops. We still need some wall decor in our house so I thought it would be fun to check out the antique shops to see if we could find some unique pieces.
We just parked on Broadway and started walking down the street to check out the shops. Since it was Sunday most places were closed. They hold strange hours but I would suggest going on a Saturday. Some places were appointment only. We ended up going to about 3 different shops and all had tons of stuff so we got our fix of antiques.
We unfortunately did not find anything for the house, but we had so much fun looking around. I could spend all day in these shops if I could. I would highly recommend stopping by if you have a free afternoon. Broadway also has lots of coffee shops and breweries that you can stop into for a drink.
Outfit details: jeans, shirt, shoes, bag
Happy Friday! Today I thought I would share my weekend look. This outfit is pretty much what you can find me wearing on any given weekend if the temps are a little on the cooler side. The layers are perfect for our ever changing Colorado weather.
Pants – Love these leggings! Everyone raves about them for a reason and I think they are a must have! I am wearing a size medium.
Jacket – I have had this jacket forever, and it is a closet staple. I find myself reaching for it with almost every outfit, it is so versatile. Mine is real leather and had held up so well. It is also surprisingly warm. I can wear it to and from the office in the snow and still stay pretty warm. Real leather jacket option, Faux leather jacket option.
Shirt – Oh the chambray shirt! Why is it so hard to find one that is the perfect color and fit?! This one from H&M is almost perfect but I am still on the hunt for one that is just right for me.
Shoes – OK I love these shoes! They look good with everything! I love being able to throw them on and be cute and comfy. Just beware that there is a break in period (they tore up my heels when I first got them).
Have a good weekend!
Hope everyone has a great weekend! G and I decided to venture up to Dillon, Colorado to check out the Ice Castles. We were watching the local news one night and heard about these castles made out of ice and they looked awesome.
Make sure you purchase your tickets in advance from their website ($16 per person for adults) and you will be asked to pick a time slot. Unfortunately we had a minor car issue (shout out to the guy that pulled us out of the snow!) and didn’t make it there until a half hour after our allotted time. Luckily they were really relaxed with ticket times and they let us right in.
The castles were pretty crowded for a Sunday evening but still really cool to see. We got there at dusk which I thought was the perfect time to go because you got to see it in the light and when they turned on the colored lights in the dark. Plus it was really cold so I’m glad we were there when we still had some sunlight.
They are open until February 24th so you still have time to go and I highly recommend it. There were lots of adults without kids so it’s not just a kid thing (they even have an adult ice slide that G was very into). They have other locations around North America so check out the website to see if they are near you.
Jacket (mine is from J Crew Factory but here is another option), Jeans, Shoes (so warm!), Sweater (mine is old from h&m but here is a similar option), Hat (mine is from Nordstrom Rack but here are some options. I highly recommend a cashmere one to make it less itchy.)
