It’s Wednesday and I have found some new great things. Many designers have launched “pre-fall” collections that are more geared to end of Summer vs. True Fall. Here are some of my current favorite pieces. Many of them are out of my price range – but I love to have a wish list and inspiration. (more…)
The 4th of July is just around the corner and it is one of my favorite holidays to select an outfit for. It’s the perfect occasion to be casual in red, white, and blue or over the top in a more patriotic look. The best part about the 4th is many of us already have great pieces in our closet that we can pair together – and if you don’t there are so many pieces to choose from that will not bust your budget and will last in your wardrobe for years to come. Check out some of my finds below – many are under $150.
Fun top from Pixie Market – great to wear with white jeans or a pair of white shorts.
As many of you know – Clay and I are expecting a new baby in September!! As many of you also know – I love clothes and fashion – so many people have asked me what I have been wearing during my maternity days. I will be honest – I was not excited about gaining weight and having to change my “look” but I was excited about buying new clothes – I mean who isn’t?? The good news is that many of the current trends this season are more flowy and less body conscious – which is great for me right now. I decided I wanted to purchase more current fashion that I would be able to wear in the future vs. true maternity clothes – although towards the end I understand I will need to purchase a couple of true maternity pieces to get me through.
Here are some key pieces that I picked up and have taken me through the last 7 months and have been my “go to” styles.
Boho Blouse – this one from Isabel Marant, this one from Madewell, and these from Jcrew are amazing. I have white and the blue and white stripe.
A-line Dress without a waist line – this one by Alexander Wang and this Rebecca Taylor are very comfortable and I can see myself wearing again post baby. I am also eyeing this Sea Dress for the rest of the summer.
Trapeze sweater – this one from Jcrew has been perfect for me with jeans.
Jacket/blazer to wear over dresses – I have lived in this one from Club Monaco because its knit and moves with me.
I did purchase a pair of maternity jeans from Gap – I have not worn them yet – but I think they will come in handy very soon. I tried numerous pairs and I liked these the best for their fit and the price.
