This adorable shirt is on sale for $29.99! It’s such a pretty light purple in person…didn’t quite photograph as I would have liked. The laser cuts are such a cute detail, and I love the button close in the back. And it pairs great with these Banana Republic white skinny ankle jeans – which are on sale for $68!

And let’s not forget my new favorite Henri Bendel bracelets. I wrote about the amazing sale this weekend. Pick these up before they are gone!

J. Crew Factory Quilted Vest

I was always a little unsure of the vest trend. But when J. Crew Factory has one of their great 40% off the whole store deals, I thought why not? I went with navy, since blue is one of my favorite colors and I knew I had a ton of different options to wear underneath.

I can’t tell you how much I have worn this vest! My other favorite way to wear it is with a plaid shirt underneath. It’s so easy just to throw on some skinnies and boots – and you’re done! Easy outfits are my favorite 🙂

Fancy Sweatshirt

I have to admit I’m not a huge fan of the sweatshirt trend…until I found this great jacquard sweatshirt at Gap. I love how it’s “fancy” enough to wear to work (thank you casual workplace!). The details of the exposed zipper on the back was a sealed deal. It is so comfortable, too! I was slightly worried about getting the white dirty, but thankfully I didn’t have any spills 🙂

This is on sale right now, too! Gap always has various offers, so you can definitely pick this up for a huge bargain. You’re welcome.

Navy Stripe Peplum Top

Here is my 4th of July ensemble. Easy and simple. Navy stripe peplum top, dark skinnies, and red shoes. I saw this top on sale at Anthro and immediately tried it on. It’s a substantial fabric and is such a great fit. You can see on the website it has a thick navy belted bow, but I wasn’t feeling it at the time. Granted I was a little hot in jeans, but by the time the sun went down and with the breeze off the lake, it ended up being perfect. I’m also the type of girl who is always cold! 🙂

Statement Necklace, Skinnies, and Animal Print – Oh My!

To me, this was an easy outfit. Do you ever have one of those mornings when you are feeling rushed and just need to hurry up and get the heck out the door? In the ATL, I have about a 10-minute window that if I don’t hit it, I’m stuck in traffic. As in taking me an hour to get to work 😦

So…this outfit came together super easy on my rushed morning. Love a good silk button up. Love a good statement necklace. Love a good pair of skinnies. Love leopard print. Add them all up and voila! Here’s what you got!

J. Crew Statement Necklace

My team member at work came to work one day and said “Emily, you have go to get these!” She understands my love for fashion. So for $20 (on sale!) at Old Navy, I couldn’t resist. I love trying new skinnies. And these are pull-on…circa my maternity pant wearing days! I am prone to buying dark wash too because they just make jeans seem a little dressier – at least in my mind. I’ve worn them a few times now, and I highly recommend them. They keep their shape all day and do not stretch out or appear baggy after a few hours. And for under $30, you can’t beat it!

Now, I love wearing high heels, but I’ve been on the hunt for some leopard print flats. Or kitten heels would do, too. And I finally found a pair! Where you ask? In my favorite store’s shoe sale room – Von Maur!! I’ve never own a pair of Isaac Mizrahi New York shoes before, and I am now a big fan. Super comfortable! And they are made so well.

The Limited Ashton Blouse

On Monday, I told you about my fascination with button ups. Well, my friends, it continues. I love being comfortable at work, yet look pulled together and not too casual. The Limited’s Ashton Blouse is perfect for this look.

The Limited Ashton Blouse

And this blouse comes in so many colors and prints – and it’s on sale!

The fabric is a drapey crepe, and it lays so well. It’s also the perfect V. It doesn’t plunge too much and gives just the right coverage for work. And if you are like me and want a shirt to go past your hip line, this is for you! It looks great with skinny jeans, but also looks great tucked in. It covers a good majority of the booty 🙂

I won’t lie – I just ordered another one in a beautiful purple color. Addiction kicking in!!!

The Limited Ashton BlouseLet me also talk for just a second about these AG Absolute Legging Extreme Skinnies. They are like wearing sweat pants. They have so much stretch…and the fabric is ridiculously soft. And don’t hate, but I got these amazing leggings for a whopping $59. I know; I have a knack for finding amazing deals sometimes. These have become my favorites!

Always Time for Peplum

To say I’ve been busy at work is an understatement. The blog is being a little neglected…but since I don’t make money from my blog and I do from my day job….day job comes first. I write employee benefits communication (hold the ooohs and aaaahhhhs please). It’s a great job and I work with some great people and clients. But my 4th quarter is insane to say the least.

Enough about work. On to the fashion…

The Limited blue peplum top

I love a cute peplum top. And it worked so well with this $15 necklace I got at J. Crew Factory a few weeks back. That’s right. $15. I was shocked! It was another 50% off the sale price. I love great statement necklaces like this; it could pair nicely with so many different looks. (Disregard the FitBit 🙂 )

J. Crew Factory Neon Pendant Necklace

 

I know tons of bloggers talked about their Nordstrom anniversary sales purchases over the summer. Well, these bootie were mine. I love the python heel to the added interest. They are the perfect height for me, too. I found them to be comfortable all day while wearing them at work.

Black and Pink

It’s finally summer – yahoo! And summer means fun colors.

Wait. I love fun colors no matter what time of year! But, I digress. 🙂

Black and pink has been a favorite combination of mine, well, like foreva! What can I say, I’m a girlie girl and love my pink. Pastel or hot!

Here’s a crochet tank that I got in my first Stitch Fix (look for a post next week), and at first I didn’t really like it. But, I’m always up to step outside my box. I’m glad I did because I really liked it once i put it on! Thought I could dress it up a little with a statement necklace, skinnies, and heels. Voila!
