I’ve almost survived my busy season at work…only a couple more weeks to go. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can. While working non-stop, I can’t tell you how much I’ve had these jeans and booties on repeat. I purchased them during the Nordstrom sale during the summer, and they were definitely A+ purchases.
I didn’t realize how much in my closet goes with this dark gray color of the Vince Camuto Karinta block heeled bootie. And since I’ve worn them so much, I can tell you with confidence that these are actually comfortable. They have a good amount of padding in the ball of the foot and with the thick block heel, I don’t have any heel pain at the end of the day (I tend to put my weight in my heels).
AG is one of my favorite brands, so I knew I would love these jeans. I have to say I listened to a blogger who tried them on and said to size up, and I probably should have ordered my typical size. Granted, yes, they are super skinny jeans and are snug when you first put them on, but they do stretch out while you wear them. I love the distressed hem on these…it’s even subtle enough for my casual office.
What’s also great about this post? These two items are on sale back to what they were during the Nordstrom sale this summer! So maybe it’s good I waited to share this post with you anyway 🙂 Happy shopping!
Sometimes a beautiful shirt just makes me happy. Yep. This one included. I scored this beauty at Annie Griffin’s warehouse sale in Atlanta. I just fell in love with the colors. I’ve added quite a few silk blouses to my closet. They are just easy outfits – just pair it with skinnies and some great jewelry…and walk out the door! Easy peasy.
And yes, I’ve jumped on the Kendra Scott Rayne bandwagon. But this necklace goes with so much! Versatile jewelry is the best kind of jewelry.

Truthfully, my favorite weekend is when I don’t have to get ready and put make-up on or do my hair. All weekend. Like none of it. And showering at 3 in the afternoon. Relaxation (even though I workout hard on the weekends)…I love you so.
But yesterday, I wanted to head over and hit a few shops at the Avalon. It’s such a great place over there – and there is such a good mix of shops. (And I’m looking forward to Exhale to open so I can try out the classes!) So what does that mean? I actually had to shower and put on real clothes. 🙂
So I went for total comfort. I love that the lululemon Wunder Under leggings are easy to dress up. The only caveat is I want to make sure I wear a cardigan/sweater/shirt that is long enough to cover the booty. These cotton leggings are so comfortable; I love the way they feel.
I paired the leggings with this ridiculously comfy cardigan that I got about five years ago at The Loft. I hadn’t worn this retired Stella & Dot necklace in a while, which is gold, cream, and green, so I put a hunter green J. Crew Perfect Tee underneath. Again, I’ve had this t-shirt foreva! It washes so well.
So my comfy look was complete! Are you like me? Do you like to be comfy on the weekends?

Once I typed in that title, immediately in my head I cheered “Blue and gold, hey, beat those Dawgs.” Quick high school cheerleading moment there.
I recently had a Kendra Scott store open close to me, and I see so many bloggers that love her jewelry. So I had to stop in and check it out. It was wonderful! What beautiful designs and so many fantastic colors!
I picked up this Jackie Tie Necklace in gold and started playing with all of the different ways to wear it…with the help of the associate.
So it just had to come home with me. I have to say it a nice weight and I love the beautiful gold shine. The silver one was beautiful too, but I was looking for gold.
Let’s stop and talk a second about this blue cashmere sweater. I’ve never owned cashmere before because, well, the price points always turned me away. But…in walks a 75% off sale at C. Wonder, and I picked this beauty up at a whopping $35. Nope. That’s not a typo. $35. This cobalt blue is my favorite color, and I can see myself wearing this sweater for many years.
Linking up with The Pleated Poppy.
As it gets colder, there is nothing better than dressing warm. And since I hate being cold, I love to dress in layers in the winter. This outfit kept me super warm. Just the way I like it.
To dress up my legging look, I added some sparkle with my necklace and earrings. It was just the right amount for work to make the outfit a little less casual.
Shirt – Banana Republic; Sweater – Gap; Leggings – Maddie M; Boots – Frye; Necklace and Earrings – Stella & Dot; Ring – Bulgari
I’ve realized that I own a lot of animal print. But one may ask, is there such a thing as too much animal print? Not in my book.
A few weeks ago, I found great pieces at Banana Republic. I walked out of there with three silk blouses. This being one of them. I stuck by my rule of thinking of three ways to wear this before I bought it, and this being one way. When browsing other fashion blogs or even Pinterest, I love the look of a flowy blouse with skinny pants.
These brown pants are also from BR, and they labeled them as leggings. I love how they fit. They have a faux button closure and small pockets. (I don’t seem them online or I would link them.) The legs are also skinny enough where I could easily tuck them into my boots. I wouldn’t really classify them as leggings because they are much thicker than any other legging I own.
This was such an easy outfit to put together – I plan on wearing this a lot!
