Casual Style – Sneakers and Puffer Vest

Wow, you know you haven’t blogged in a long time when you still aren’t logged into WordPress 🙂 It’s been a while, but life has been busy and I’ve enjoyed spending so much time with my family – and of course the occasional shopping trip!

One of my great friends loves vests. I mean loves them…we call it part of her uniform. And she’s started rubbing off on me. They are so great to have when it’s not too cold enough to have a coat but not quite warm enough just to have a shirt on. I snatched up this Loft Puffer Vest a few weeks ago when they were having 70% off online. Uh, yes please! Couldn’t resist the soft pink color. Typically I size down at the Loft, but I ordered a medium to make sure it was roomy enough to have a shirt or sweater underneath. It fits great – and is the softest fabric. Highly recommend.

I’ve also started quite the collection of fashionable sneakers. I follow Loverly Grey on Instagram. She’s the cutest thing and a native Atlanta suburb girl. She had these adidas Edge Luxe shoe on and was raving about them, so I decided to give them a try. SO glad I did. They really are super comfortable. And can we talk about the laces for a second? Too cute. When I wore them to work, I think I got about 10 compliments on them. (Can I mention I love an office where I can wear this cute outfit?!)

Vince Camuto Karinta and AG The Legging

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!

Banana Republic Floral Fluted Sleeve Top

Typically this type of blouse is not something I would pick up, but I loved the beautiful print. And I think the fluted sleeves are so much fun. There are so many colors that would go with this top. I have had this great J. Crew No. 2 pencil skirt forever, but I tried a light purple on with it too and it looked pretty. The Banana Republic website has a white skirt with it, but if you’ve followed me at all, y’all know I much rather prefer color over neutrals. This top is on sale right now, so don’t miss out on a great deal!
