It’s been a chilly winter here in the ATL. I’ve worn more sweaters this year than the last two winters combined. I guess it’s a good excuse to wear this adorable sweater dress though, right? I’m not a huge bell sleeve fan, but I can handle that they aren’t overly huge on this Eliza J dress. (Bummer it’s sold out, but this grey one is almost identical!) I like that the sleeves hit at my wrists instead of going any longer.
I’ve tried to wear these over-the-knee Vince Camuto Madolee boots as much as possible. They are actually comfortable, probably due to the lower heel and the chunkier width of the heel as well. I got these last summer during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale – yes, that long ago! – and now they are over $100 off of the retail price. If you have been eyeing these, I do recommend them. Just a few things to note: 1. My calf is about 15″ and these are a perfect fit. They get too tight if I try to wear skinnies with them, so I stick with leggings. 2. Size up. I always wear an 8.5, and a bunch of bloggers said to size up a half size and I’m so glad I listened. 3. These are the Foxy color, which look SO different on Nordstrom’s website. They look brown on the site and you can see they are more of a gray.
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!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I love a good blouse paired with skinny jeans. I instantly fell for this Printed Logan Blouse from The Limited. One thing I love about it? The not-too-thick-not-too-thin material. Lately there are so many blouses out there that are so thin you have to wear a cami under them. Ugh! This one is perfect where no cami is needed! Can we also talk about the huge variety of colors? The possibilities are endless really – light blue pencil skirt, mint jeans, orange ankle pants. I thought I would pull out the orange color with these necklace I got forever ago at Versona.
These Vince Camuto Effel sandals were a huge hit last year, and they no longer make them. BUT…there is a pair that is very similar, the Evel. It comes in three great colors.
Happy spring, everyone!!
Shirt – The Limited Printed Logan (2 for $59 right now – in many patterns and solids!); Shoes – Vince Camuto Effel (similar here); Jeans – AG Absolute Legging; Necklace – Versona (old); Bracelets – Kendra Scott, Henri Bendel, Michael Kors (all old); Watch – Rolex
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 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!!!
Let 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!
It’s the classic case of “went in to the store to try on one pair of shoes, but ended up with a completely different pair!” Thanks, Nordstrom shoe man 🙂
I can’t believe how comfortable these Vince Camuto Effel Sandals were when I put them on! The leather is so incredibly soft. Ankle strap shoes can also be sketchy sometimes – they can be too tight or hit on your ankle bone wrong. But not these, which I think has to do with how soft the leather is in general. The heel height is just right, too…at 3.25″. Some might think that is high, but the heel is nice and thick – and so easy to walk in. Trust me.
My first time wearing them, I thought I would pair them with a camel colored pencil skirt and orange pencil top. Can you also tell I still had my spray tan – oh how I miss thee!?!
