It’s my favorite time of year! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is right around the corner which is always my favorite time to stalk up on fall favorites, shop new trends + grab my essentials I will be rocking for the next year! I went through the entire Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview and rounded up my favorites so you can add them to your list to shop when the sale kicks off!
AUGUST 4th – Early Access for select Nordstrom cardmembers
Gobble Gobble…It’s almost time to show down on some turkey surrounded by friends + family!
I don’t know about you but I LOVE Thanksgiving! A holiday where you reflect back on what you are thankful for…plus amazing food? I mean can it get any better? I think not :p Whether it is delicious pie or my favorite string bean casserole, I am a huge Thanksgiving lover…this year however, I will have to contain myself thanks to Jenny Craig. ICYMI, I’ve been on this weight loss journey for a few months now, so that means sticking to smaller portions + not overeating (wish me luck on Thanksgiving ya’ll). Anyways, this outfit is perfect for if you want to have a second helping or two without popping the button on your jeans hehe :p
This dress is from ShopDressUp + is unfortunately no longer available but I linked to some similar styles well suited for Thanksgiving below ♥
Whether you are heading to dinner with family or a friends house for Friendsgiving, this outfit is perfect for any Thanksgiving gathering!
We will be laying low at home + will be cooking up some yummy dishes (don’t worry, I will be instastorying along the way).
These over the knee boots are my absolute favorite! They match with everything + are super comfy…plus they keep me warm when wearing dresses :p
I linked to some of my favorite styles below (because over the knee boots are a signature style every gal should have in her closet)
As for my bag…it’s my current go-to considering I just got it a few weeks ago…Chanel is always a good idea if you ask me ♥
Having total Beetlejuice vibes with this black striped dress today. I love a little black dress + what I love even more is a striped little black dress. I am currently in total holiday mode, BUT…before I begin sharing all my festive holiday season outfits, I have to share some more fall favorites like this chic dress from Skies Are Blue. What I love about this dress is that it is perfect for work or play + with a flattering fit, it’s great for date night too!
This is my twist on a little black dress because it is the little striped dress hehe 😛 You like what I did there? 😉
This dress is from Skies Are Blue, but I linked to some additional styles that are similar below – exciting news, this dress is actually big on me now since I have been loosing weight thanks to Jenny Craig!
I paired this dress with white boots (my fav trend this fall) + my trustee Chanel bag…you can never go wrong with a little Chanel.
I feel like white boots are just perfect for fall – they elevate your style + I find a bunch of affordable options above.
I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! It’s official, I am fully embracing fall + that means time for floppy hats, booties + plaid! When I got this dress from Amaryllis, I knew it was going to become one of my fall staples for so many reasons. 1. It is slimming (I mean hey that’s what my BF told me haha I will take it :p), 2. It matches perfectly with these white booties I became obsessed with as of late + 3. It is comfy, stylish + is perfect to wear for work or play!
While I am loving this dress, honestly there are so many great pieces from Amaryllis that I think I am going to have you hooked 😉 #SorryNotSorry
Amaryllis has become my one stop shop for all things fall. From chic apparel to stylish accessories, they have everything you need to create the perfect look for fall. My favorite part? They are size inclusive, which to me that means a large size range. They go from Small to 3x! Isn’t that amazing? I for sure love it when a brand carries pieces for everyone.
This dress comes in 4 colors…black, white, navy + pink AND is available in all sizes, it will be on repeat all season long…just watch. Plus, it retails for under $35, now that’s what I call a steal!!
I fell head over ‘heels’ for these white booties the second I spotted them. Best part? They are under $40!!! No joke…aren’t they cute?!
Naturally I paired my bargain shoe find with a little Chanel because I am a firm believer in mixing + matching high + low no matter what the occasion 😉
Fall wouldn’t be fall without a floppy hat moment. I love this hat so much I bought it in 3 colors…it’s from Kohl’s + retails for under $26!
Happy Monday! I have been so swamped lately with work + everything else happening in life that I have been completely slacking on the blog front (#GuiltyAsCharged) :p Safe to say last week was pretty crazy. Between the election + countless work events + photoshoots, I honestly don’t know how I managed to keep my head screwed on haha Anyways, a new week is here + I am trying to get back on track!
I wanted to first start by saying, I’m not really getting political on the blog, but acknowledging the crazy state in which we are living now. No matter how you voted, the state of the country right now is scary. I live in LA, and across California there have been riots, violence, marches etc. Whether you like an outcome or not, causing havoc + inconveniencing or scaring others isn’t going to change it…nor will it accomplish anything or bring positivity + happiness to this country. I for one don’t want to live in fear everyday, I want to be able to go about my day without worrying about extremists on both sides. But hopefully with time, things will get better.
On a bright + more light hearted note, I am currently trying to get in a fall state of mind which is pretty hard to do when temperatures are still in the 90s here in LA! So since a heat wave is still happening, I shall continue wearing some of my favorite dresses all season long 😉
One of my current favorites is this geo print maxi wrap dress from TwinkleDeals! What I love about wrap dresses is that they hit me at the perfect spot…they accentuate my cleavage 😉 and they flatter my figure…not a bad piece to have in your closet haha. Whether it’s work or play this piece is great to style with heels (like I did here) or make it casual with sandals for a weekend brunch with your squad (kinda feeling the whole #squadgoals thing…guess I am pretty late to the game huh? haha :p).
Anyways…this dress is under $20 from TwinkleDeals (most certainly a ‘deal‘ if you ask me) haha and it is a M U S T for your wardrobe!
I styled this dress with white pointed toe pumps (I feel like they are just classic + really dress up any look). This is such a great work to happy hour outfit…layer a blazer over this dress for a pulled together ‘board room ready‘ look or wear it plain with pumps + a going out bag (like one of these) to head straight to dinner or drinks!
I feel like white pumps are just totally F I E R C E. They are bold, clean + are just bad a** haha
Since I would be wearing this to go out, I had to wear my new Gucci mini bag ♥ Honestly I don’t need an excuse to wear this…I just love it so much haha
