Happy Fall!

Happy Fall my loves! Don’t kill me. I know its been FOREVER since my last post but LIFE. But I’m here! I’m Back! I’m still shopping! And I’m healthy! Yes, that’s right. Healthy. I’m getting over a horrible kidney infection that completly took me surprise and turned my life upside down. It was bad. But ANYWHO enough blabbing and more Fall fashion! Today on the blog (man it’s been awhile since I’ve typed that) I’m sharing some fall newbies with you guys!

The newest item..

Caslon Stripe Panel Sweater

I bought it today at Nordstrom for $49! My mom and I had a little shopping and dinner date tonight and my dad and boyfriend went out on their own. Just saying because it was really cute. ANYWHO..this sweater by Caslon. I love Caslon clothing. Its honest to god good quality clothing. I’m happy with all my Caslon pieces. Will always be one of my favorite Nordstrom brands.

I bought with work on my mind. Leggings, wedges, boots, flats…pretty much any shoe will compliment. But SO not feeling it with this color wash of jeans. (I’ll get into my jeans soon) A million different ways I can style this top started coming to mind as soon as I saw it. Tried it on! Loved it! Flipped the switch! Its fun and effortlessly cute! I got the navy blue and I’m thinking about going back for the Ivory color! Its GORGGG. Am I right?!

 

Also this Caslon top I wanted to talk about! I didn’t get it but I do love it. It just didn’t work for me and I’ll explain…but first the top!

Caslon Peplum Tee

PEPLUM. Peplum is a no, no for me and I’m starting to accept that fact. Something about Peplum it so not flattering on me. I’m short and I’m beginning to think thats the problem. But I did want to give this shirt some attention even though I didn’t get it. Doesn’t mean I can’t love it. Because I DO. Just not on me..

 

So getting back to my jeans I said I would mention. They’re also (fairly) new!!  They’re Lucky Brand and my new go to pair of skinny jeans. Totally OBSESSED. This is my second pair of Lucky Brand Jeans and I don’t know why I don’t own more of them! This pair is the Ava Mid Rise Legging Jean in Spirited.

 

They’re honestly the comfiest and roomiest jeans I own. Yes, I said roomiest but sometimes ya need room! The variety of washes and cuts…but who am I kidding, I always buy skinny. Just all around a solid made pair of denim jeans. I love the small details also! The the little “lucky you” on the zipper..TOO CUTE.

Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale!

It’s that time of year again!! The twice yearly Lilly Pulitzer after party sale IS. JUST. DAYS. AWAY. And I am ready to shop and I hope you are too! Today on the blog I’m sharing all the ins and outs of the sale. What you need to know. What we can expect to see. The savings. Items I hope to see. Shopping dos and don’ts And much more!

So get your Luxletics on and pour your bubbly because there’s amazing savings headed our way and you need to be ready!

When Is the sale taking place? The sale will start, Monday, Aug 28th and will end on Wednesday, Aug 30th. Now, that’s not a ton of time but that is a day longer than previous Lilly sales.

Side Note: What to know going in….

 1. ACT FAST. This event is Christmas to Lilly lovers. The website almost always crashes during the sale because all the Lilly lovers are flooding it. There is literally a virtual line….crazy right? So what I’m really saying is DON’T WAIT LAST MINUTE.

2. Be sure you have a Lilly Pulitzer account set up. You can only shop the sale if you have a Lilly account.

3. An item added to your cart DOES not mean it’s yours. Items go FAST. It’s fair game to anyone, until you officially check out.

4. Use multiple devices. Are you waiting in that annoying Virtual Line on you laptop or tablet to access the Lilly site? Pick up your phone real quick, you might have better luck. Just Saying.

5. Know what you are looking for. Do a little pre sale window shopping. Know what you are looking for. Whether it’s dresses, shirts, bottoms, accessories, down to the print you want. Filter your searches, it’s a major time saver.

 

What’s The Big Hype? What’s the big hype? Well, the big hype is that when does Lilly Pulitzer ever have items on sale??? They’re isn’t even a sale section on their website. It’s huge. Rumor has it, we can expect to see items up to 50% off. A moment of silence please. For that beautiful phrase. 50 PERCENT OFF. LILLY PULITZER. THAT IS ALL.

What Items I hope to see marked down.. fingers crossed

Cabrey Shift Dress

Martinique Long Fridge Hem Sweater

Worth Skinny Jean

Luxletic Midi Pant

Arbelle Off The Shoulder Romper

Printed Popover

Kensington Beaded Top

 

Talk soon!

Long Weekend Packing MUST HAVES!

Hi lovelies!! CANNOT believe the Fourth of July is already here! I swear just yesterday there was snow on the ground. Soooo excited for what’s ahead. My boyfriend and I are headed outta here for the Fourth of July just us two! I’m V excited because not only are we spending a couple of nights away, work free, morning alarm free, but we’re spending a couple nights away in my favorite place. Cape Cod/ Martha’s Vineyard/Nantucket. Yeah, pretty much going to be everywhere! Today on the blog I’m sharing with you readers what I’m packing. Deffff not all because we’d be here AWHILE lol.. So I broke it down into some categories for you dolls.

Currently..

The main travel accessories

Tory Burch Embroidered-t Weekender

 

So the newest accessory to the family is this beauty. A beauty am I right?! Too be honest this is not what I was looking for. Let me start off by saying I was in the market for a weekend duffle bag so that’s why I bought it in the first place. But any who, I originally wanted a Vineyard Vines whale weekender but at the moment Vineyard Vines is only selling the weekender bag both online and in store in the world cup print and I was just like no. Nothing against the world cup just no. Nothing fashionable about that what so ever. So that brings me to this Tory Burch BEAUTY.

I originally saw it on the Nordstrom website first and out of curiosity, I then went to the Tory Burch website where IT WAS ON SALE and still is!! From there I clicked order without a second thought and OMG SO. GLAD. I DID. I am in loveeee with this weekender. I know it’s going to last me a very long time and I’m going to get SO MUCH use out of it. Durable, sooo much space, expandable, zip pockets, optional cross body strap, which I love.

Vineyard Vines Tote

Love this Tote. I mainly use it as a beach bag but it’s great for traveling. I usually put things like shoes, food (of course) my laptop, chargers, all the odds and end things that don’t go in my main travel bag.

Vineyard Vines Cosmetic Case

Another Vineyard Vines goody of mine and one of my favorites. If you’re regular follower of my blog you know I love this cosmetic case and have gotten a ton of use out of it. Not only do I love it for its beauty (the checkered blue interior is my favorite) but for its durability. It’s so well built and fits all of my cosmetics perfectly, which is A LOT. Trust me. So right there you know pictures don’t do justice for what you can squeeze in here. Plus the zipper is V strong. SUPER CUTE am I right?!

The shoes…

Now this is the category I tend to over pack the most in. SHOES. So this time I’m breaking old habits and bringing only three. That’s right. THREE. Ugh, if I regret this my boyfriend is to blame.

Cosmetics..

Another area I tend to over pack in. I just can’t help it!! Who knows what can happen…what if I wake up with a huge blemish and don’t have the right product with me to act fast?!?! Yeah..that’s pretty much how I think when it comes to packing my cosmetics. But seriously “What If?!”

First, my basic everyday makeup/perfume. A MUST.

Second, all the products that I use EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. on my face. another MUST.

Other Necessities 

Annnnnd because we’re going to be in the sun like 24/7 we need protection. Over the course of the last year or so I have really stepped up my skin protection game. Before, I would just go to the beach and oil up with no sun protection what so ever. I never took sun protection seriously. That is until a harsh reality brought me into the dermatoligst’s office with sun spots. Yeah, DON’T EVER want to experience that again. So now I protect!

Picked up these products this morning at Target!

If you don’t hear from me soon..

Have a safe and happy Fourth Of July everyone!
