I have been really into sweaters lately. I get cold easily but I’m not a fan of wearing bulky layers or jackets, especially on my days off when I’m running errands or lounging around the house. As a result, I tend to end up wearing a uniform of sorts during the colder months- a cozy sweater with jeans or leggings and preferably some fun sneakers. It can definitely get a bit repetitive (especially since once I find a sweater I love, I tend to wear it for multiple days in a row) so I always look for pieces with something special. This lace up sleeve sweater from SheIn is my latest find and it’s been on repeat since I got it.
I like to wear a lot of different prints but stripes are definitely my number one. I love how they are simple and classic but can easily be bold and fresh depending on the size and what I pair them with. I usually go for a breton stripe but every now and then I mix it up, like with these two tops. I’ve been craving lots of stripes lately and these two black and white striped tops caught my eye. I love the fun details like gingham sleeves and a peplum but my favorite part is how easy each striped top is to wear.
I just got back from visiting Stacie in Nashville and we had so much fun! I was there for a week and our days were jam-packed but it still feels like I need to go back soon because there were so many other things we didn’t get to do! Nashville is pretty easy to visit because it’s so small so it’s super easy to get around. I swear, every time we went anywhere it only took about 15 minutes. We circled the city a few times each day and ate a ridiculous amount of food. I also loved looking at all of the colorful murals around the city and I couldn’t resist using them to showcase some of my new clothes from thredUP, an online consignment shop. You’ll hear a lot more about my trip over the next few weeks, so keep checking back!
I love fun basics that you can throw together to create a super cute outfit in almost no time. This black and white striped tunic has been one of my favorites the last few months and I’ve been wearing plenty of light layers with it as the weather has gotten warmer. This gray sweater is perfect over tunics and I’ve been living in these crazy-soft skinny jeans. Add some suede boots and a sparkly statement necklace and I’m good to go!
I love holidays that require you to dress up. It’s so fun to play along and wear something with a specific theme. I’ve always loved going all out for Halloween and making sure every detail of my costume was just right but other holidays that call for outfits fitting a general theme can be just as fun. Everyone knows that you have to wear green for St. Patrick’s Day and red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July. It’s nice to see everyone dress a little over the top and have fun with it. Red and pink are perfect for Valentine’s Day and I love adding a little cheesiness with lots of hearts and love-themed accessories. It’s never difficult for me to come up with the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit.
Isn’t it funny how sometimes our outfits can go in stages? Sure, we all have certain pieces that we gravitate towards and trends that we like to follow, but don’t you sometimes just find yourself reaching for the same thing over and over again, even though your closet is full of other clothes? I know I definitely experience that and this black and white striped tunic is my latest obsession.
