IT’S SCARF SEASON, Y’ALL

Scarf: Plum Boutique

Happy first day of FALL! Not to be cliche, but Fall is by far my favorite season. I think every girl ever would agree with that statement, but for me the season is about so much more than pumpkin spice lattes. It’s about clothes, y’all. We finally bid farewell to the sweatiness of summer (maybe that’s just me…) and get to pile on the layers! Ok, so there’s still a couple weeks until the cool weather really sets in, but now is the time to stock up on fall faves, such as scarves. A great scarf, like the one pictured above, is the best way to pull your outfit together…with minimal effort. Leggings, a little sweater (bonus points for a cape), topped with a plaid infinity, and you’re good to go. I love this one, from Plum Boutique in Waco, TX! It’s super cozy, but also thin enough to double loop without looking like you’re wearing a neck brace haha. Plus, the price is most certainly right, at only $28!

Plum recently launched their new website (Plumtique.com) and I’m pretty much obsessed with everything. From apparel, to jewelry, and home accessories, they’ve got you covered. Definitely go check out the site and treat yourself to some goodies. For my Baylor readers (sic ’em!), head to their adorable shop in Spice Village. Also, give them a follow on Instagram for a wonderful feed full of inspiration! Be sure to check back on Friday, as I’ll be hosting a little Plum Boutique giveaway!

I hope everyone is having a great first day of fall, thanks for popping by!

Time to haul out the red, white, & blue y’all! I’ve personally been celebrating for a couple days now, because as you probably could gather from other things I’ve featured on the blog, I LOVE the Fourth of July. I seriously get so fired up for America, and can’t wait for this weekend’s festivities! Here’s a little inspiration for your Independence Day style. I’ll personally be wearing these American flag shorts from Krass and Co! I hope everyone has a great weekend, try not to blow a hand off with a firework!

Happy Monday! Here’s some of the things I’m currently coveting. I really need a new wallet, and this little Saint Laurent number is basically calling my name. I’m also mulling over getting this wallet, as it’s a little more realistic price-wise, like…$500 more realistic.

Sunday Sales?

 So it may not be the usual Saturday Sales, but work with me here. Not too late to take advantage of some great weekend deals. Bloomingdales is having the “Extra Haute June Sale” (lol), which takes up to 25% off tons of designer faves and wardrobe basics. That’s where I found this citrus-hued Longchamp. We all have these handy nylon totes dating back to high school, but if you’re in the market for a new gym/beach/everyday bag, this one is such a fun pick. If you prefer the classic Le Pliage, don’t fret, several colors are on sale too. Jack Rogers are another wardrobe staple for me, they’re some of the best sandals I own. They’re a great basic to throw on with anything, and once worn in, actually pretty comfortable. Plus, this sunny pair is less than $80, so treat yoself. Now, I can’t really call culottes a wardrobe staple. I rarely like this look, but Alice & Olivia does it right. The look is less stubby pants and more chic midi skirt, so I’m into it. This pair is still nearly $300 everywhere else, but Nordstrom has them for $175…so if you’re in the market, there ya go. Be sure to check out all my other weekend sale picks, as always, click to shop. I hope y’all are having a relaxing Sunday!

Happy Monday! Right now, the main thing I want (need!) is a pair of jean shorts. I don’t know if any of y’all have had a similar quest for an acceptable pair of jorts, but it’s near impossible! They’re either Bermudas fit for church camp, or like seriously trailer-park-short. Part of the problem is that I have this idyllic picture of the perfect shorts in my head, and I’m beginning to think they just don’t exist. Several other bloggers have recommended One Teaspoon for denim cut-offs and I think I’m going to give the above pair a spin! If any of y’all have suggestions on the subject, let me know! Be sure to check out all the other goodies on this little list, because several things are on sale. As you can tell, I’m trying to amp up my summer wardrobe, and everything here would be right at home. Plus, the camera is for documenting it all. I hope your Monday is going well so far, and if not, even more reason to shop.

Life Recap

Hellooooo! Sorry I’ve been such a flake these days! This past week has been a whirlwind and I’m just now catching up on life! A few days out on the town and your body starts to hate you, I swear. I spent the weekend in Chicago with my best friend, Gabby (aka the brilliant person who named this blog), and our boyfriends! It had been a year since I’d seen her, so it was a much needed reunion. We basically just sketched around town for a couple days and it was the best. On Saturday night, we took in game 7 and celebrated the Blackhawks’ win. Y’all probably could have guessed I’m not the sportiest gal but I got pretty fired up along with everyone else in the Windy City that night! I forget how close/easy of a trip Chicago is for us Madisonians, and I definitely want to spend a few more weekends there this summer. I surprised myself this weekend and didn’t shop too much, which I’m sure came as a relief to my poor bank account. I did, however, pick up this little number on the last day of the Nordstrom sale! I’d loved this BaubleBar gold tassel strand online, so when I saw it in person, I knew it was meant to be. It’s a really fun piece for summer and is a nice deviation from the typical single tassel necklaces we’ve been seeing. It’ll also be a great necklace for layering, if I feel so bold haha. Unfortunately, I can’t find it online (and on sale) at Nordstrom, but it’s still available on the BaubleBar website, so click the picture if you’re interested! It also has a sweet little matching bracelet which might need to be mine as well. I hope y’all are having a happy hump-day!

Saturday Sales

Hi everyone, welcome back to some great #SaturdaySales. First, I have to talk about this Vineyard Vines maxi dress, which fits in perfectly with this post. Score it for 25% off along with everything else VV, thanks to their Friends & Family sale! Now is also a good time to stock up on t-shirts (college forever). This RAILS LA button down is seasonless and SUCH a great deal right now. You can wear it on chillier nights with white jeans and it can carry you through fall as well. Speaking of white jeans, I’m obsessed with this pair from J.Crew. They fit comfortably and wash SO well. Everyone needs some white denim in their life. These are 25% off and so is this amazing bangle. I’m really into anything marble right now, from entire kitchens to accessories. Don’t forget to check out J.Crew’s regular sale section, too! It’s an extra 50% off. Who doesn’t love a cheeky phone case? I’ve been eyeing this Kate Spade case for a while and just might snap it up due to this deal at Bloomie’s. I’m loving these simple heart earrings from Shopbop, really sweet and easy for everyday wear. Lastly, this coral MBMJ wallet is a great little summer buy. Plus, you can subtly capitalize on the perforated trend. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and happy graduation to so many! Tomorrow, I’ll have a post up on the best grad gifts.
