What I Wear When I Travel...

Since we’ve been traveling a lot this month - I thought I would share what I like to wear to the airport/on the plane. I ALWAYS opt for comfort, especially when I’m traveling with the family - so my Nike Roshe’s are my go-to sneaker. I have them in black/white and also white/white. They’re so ridiculously comfortable! I posted a photo of the black roshe’s below and also, I usually get lots of questions about this leather jacket too. The hood is removable - and I love that because it makes the jacket dressier for a night out and more casual with the hood!

I always tend to wear leggings and I have shared my favorite Lululemon dupe a lot on my Instagram lately - but they’re just TOO GOOD. They’re from Amazon, so you can literally get them in two days if you have Amazon Prime and they come in a bunch of colors. I love how they are thick a.k.a not see-through, and they’re high-waisted so they really hold everything in. Did I mention they’re only $25?! You can see them below…

With my leggings, I usually wear a long t-shirt either white or black … but either way, I make sure it covers my bum! I typically get cold on airplanes, so I will wear a long cardigan like this or my distressed denim jacket from Topshop. I found a similar jacket here. Even if it’s super cold flying from Boston, but I’m going somewhere warmer - I always leave my winter jacket at home and pack a few lighter jackets. I just bought this teddy coat a few weeks back from Amazon ($32) and it’s actually perfect to travel in! It’s surprisingly warm, but also easily squishes into a carry on if needed! I’ve worn it way too many times already - here it is below :)

These spanx leggings in the picture above are always a hit as well - THEY’RE AMAZING. They completely hold everything is but are SUUUUPER comfortable at the same time. They’re faux-leather so they’re perfect for a night out too…but can be dressed down as you see above. They’re actually comfortably enough to travel in - and I bring them on every trip because they’re multi-purpose!

We have another trip in just 10 days and we’re going somewhere SUNNY and tropical, so I’ve got my eye on a few jumpsuits I think would be great to travel in. I like this one that’s sleeveless! I can wear a cardigan or my denim jacket over it and then when we land, I’m dressed appropriately for the warm weather. I also just love the ease of jumpsuits in general. ASOS always has some great options!

Here are a few other things that I would LOVE to travel in…and highly recommend for you if you have a trip coming up!

Stay tuned for where we will be going next!

Red Fall Trend...

I really love the bold red color trend we're seeing this Fall. If you're not into the bright crimson red, a more understated maroon could be the perfect fit for you! Looking at images from NYFW, there were a lot of "head to toe" crimson looks. Personally, that's a bit much for me BUT I do love specific pieces in red like a fun, fiery blouse paired with a red lip or incorporating the color as an accessory in the form of a handbag. (Side note: my favorite long-lasting lip stain is "Always Red" by Sephora). 

If you're interested in the shirt I'm wearing below I've linked it here. It's just $10 and it's pretty perfect for fall. Loose + comfortable, but the ruffle detail at the bottom dresses it up. I'm wearing a size small for reference! 

I'm also sharing other red pieces from Nordstrom that are some of my faves right now! Happy Friday + happy shopping!

Fall Staples On Sale...

I've been SO into the Fall pieces in this years Nordstrom Sale! Most of the items I've purchased are perfect for Fall (you can see them here) and it's making me so excited for apple picking, warm cider, football, and crockpot meals :) 

Since I can't possibly purchase every single thing that I want, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite Fall staples currently ON MAJOR SALE - so you can stock up!

Denim Dress...

My Outfit: Dress: Shein | Top: Forever21, similar here and also love this one | Shoes: Converse | Sunglasses: RayBan

Happy Monday! 

I'm so excited to share this denim dress with you ... and it's only $18! Another Shein steal! The quality is great and I love how comfortable it is...not too tight and not difficult to sit down in (you know how denim can be!) I also love the little pocket in the front!

I wanted to mention that this dress runs SMALL! I suggest ordering a size or two up! I ordered a medium and like how it fits, but I think I would have even been happy with a large....so it had a very loose fit. It's a teeny bit tight in the hips, although it ends up giving the dress some sort of shape which also looks cute too. If I had ordered a small, it definitely would have been too snug to wear! 

Here are a few other jumpers that I love ... and the great thing about these is that you can wear them in the Fall too!

Best Of Shoes: NSale...

Happy Monday!

The NSALE is still going strong - with SO many deals and sales it's actually quite overwhelming for a blogger like myself ;) I'm trying to focus on expanding my Fall wardrobe for the upcoming season, since Summer (in my world) is basically a month from being over! I've been on the lookout for black closed-toe booties and found the cutest ones from BP for under $100! I also have my eye on another pair of tall boots, like these from Vince Camuto - and also looking for some that are flat so I can wear them even when I'm out running errands with Lo and feel like being stylish (I really like these!) I'm trying to pace myself, but I think it's just a matter of time before I cave and buy them :) 

There are lots of great deals on shoes so I wanted to round-up my favorites for you...to save you some "digging" time!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What To Look For...

Tomorrow is the beginning of the #NSale! 

This is one of my favorite times of the year (well, since becoming a blogger) because of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Since becoming a cardholder, I can shop the sale before everyone else and before my favorites sell out! The deals are INSANE! I try to focus on some key Fall items - because with summer half way gone, now is not the time to stock up on warm weather apparel! 

Here are some of the top things on my list that I'll be looking for...

Cardigans:

I'm on the lookout for some classic cardigans that I can wrap up in this Fall. I have a few, but am in dire need of more to complete my outfits. I have my eye on this one from Madewell:

Tops:

I always need new tops and right now I think I need to brighten up my wardrobe. I tend to lean toward the neutrals, but I've got my eye on a cute red blouse from Gibson. BP is also one of my favorite brands for cute tops that are super affordable. Keep an eye out on Hinge, Pleione, and Halogen as well - more of my faves! How cute is this eyelet Pleione top? I love the color!

Booties:

Last year, shoes were the highest selling category in the NSale, so you may want to complete your "shoe wishlist" first! I'll be looking for a pair of classic black booties, closed-toe! I've got a suede pair but they're peep-toe and I also just want a leather option. This pair below from Pour la Victoire is INCREDIBLE (left), but also more than $300 - I'm going to see how discounted they are! I have my eye on these from Sole Society too pictured to the right (which are already under $100!)...I love the little cutouts!

 

Skinny Jeans:

Last year, the AG Legging Jeans were the best-selling product of the ENTIRE sale! I don't own a pair, but I may have to invest considering I keep my jeans for YEARS - and they're always a good place to spend your money. 

Umm...how cute is this pair? Same brand, but love the wash!

Outerwear:

Another area of focus for me this year is outerwear! I feel like I need some cute cropped jackets for Fall and also on the lookout for a long beige jacket with more of a dressy feel, for date nights! I love this BLANKNYC moto jacket - the color is amazing, and it's a bigger ticket item (for me, anyway) so it's on my wish list. I hope to get it at half price! The jacket on the right is another from BLANKNYC and I absolutely LOVE the fit. It's already under $100, so I'm definitely going to snag it when it goes on sale!


A few other things to keep an eye on...

Hunter boots were on sale last year - HUGE! Check those out and you may be able to get them on sale, which I find is really hard to do! Also, the brand LUSH is another favorite because they're stuff is cute AND super affordable. Their tees are incredibly soft and comfortable! If you're looking for a specific handbag, now might be the time to snag it up! I love the bags from Madewell

Summer Outfits Under $100...

Happy Wednesday! 

Here are a few outfits I put together for you that are all under $100! I don't like spending $100 on one item, but if I can put an entire outfit together for that price - then that's more my speed :) The last outfit features a grapefruit straw clutch which is so adorable (& under $20) and I paired it with an off-shoulder chambray dress; you'll love it! Thank you for stopping by and happy shopping!







July Fourth Inspiration...

In honor of July 4th coming up in just a few weeks, I thought I'd share some super adorable AND patriotic pieces! The tops and dresses are perfect for any bbq or parade ... and if you're heading to a pool party, how cute is this red, white + blue one-piece?! I'm a real sucker for white, so when I found this maxi skirt under $100 I had to share - I love the eyelet details at the bottom! 

Which items are your favorite?! Also - any fun plans for the Fourth?

black5.jpg

Look Number Two // Dress: Shein || Heels: Target, similar here || Purse: Kate Spade, similar here (under $40) || Sunglasses: RayBan

Happy Monday!

I wanted to share this adorable black-tie dress that is SO comfortable and lightweight; perfect for the warm summer temps! I love love LOVE the off-shoulder look too...and best part? This dress is $18! You really cannot beat the price! I also love that it's a little shorter in the front than it is in the back. Perfect for if you're wearing it with heels!

I styled the dress a few ways; the first look is more casual but still looks super cute when dressed down for running errands or a playdate with the kids! I love that I can wear this with London and feel comfortable AND stylish at the same time. Here, I'm using my Skip Hop diaper bag which I LOVE for so many reasons, but mostly because it's black, chic and doesn't scream "I'm a diaper bag," which I can appreciate.

The second look is perfect for a night out! The dress is easily jazzed up with a quick shoe change, bag change (like this Kate Spade one or this lookalike version for $35!), and hair-do adjustment! I would also add a red lip to really make it pop! You can shop each look through the specific links under the photos above or through the widget below :)

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy Valentine's Day, Lovers! 

I posted this outfit on my Instagram and wanted to share here also! I feel like we had such a mild winter up until this past week! We've had so much snow dumped on us here in Boston, and all I can think of is Spring! The snow, although annoying to manuever in, is so beautiful - especially after a fresh snowfall. I took these photos at my parents farm a few weeks ago with my favorite photographer, Patti Takacs (you can check out her site here!) I love the contrast between the white of the snow and the dark outfit/red lip! The red lip stain "Always Red" that you see me wearing is from Sephora and it's my absolute favorite! It's only $14 and it's so long-lasting. The jacket I actually stole from my mom for this shot (Thanks, Mom!) - it's J.Crew and classic wool blend. I linked a few look-a-likes above!

Pale Pink + Lace...

 

My Outfit: Cynthia Rowley, similar here and here | Jeans: Express | Booties: old, similar (and on sale) here  | Choker: LULO Jewelry | Purse: Nine West, couldn't find exact but love this adorable blush tote 

Happy Monday! 

How pretty is this pale pink and lace combo?! The sweater is actually all in one (sweater with an added lace layer) and I'm drawn to anything already layered so I don't have to think :) The purse was a steal from TJ Maxx ($24, Nine West) and I couldn't find the replica, but I linked a super cute blush tote with floral detailing here. I also thought I'd share some other pieces already layered for your convenience! You can shop them below!

Today I've picked some of my favorite RED + PINK pieces ... because let's be honest, they really are the prettiest colors, am I right?! :) 

I didn't get to add these sunglasses to my collage below, but I love them! The pale pink rims are so adorable. Also this beautiful lace dress comes in red and it's to die for; the peekaboo shoulder is a huge trend! Enjoy my other picks below - thanks for stopping by!

I wanted to share some cute items with you all! Enjoy!
