Leopard and Lace

I love a good shift dress.  And this placed print dress with lace trim from Express is an all-time favorite.  Plus, if you don’t own this jacket yet, you NEED to ASAP.  I’ve had it for a couple of seasons and it’s so good.  I’ve even purchased it in a couple of other colors too. The fit is flattering, the material looks expensive, it goes with everything, and it’s under $100. Say what??!! In my opinion, this jacket is definitely the best value item you can add to your wardrobe this season.

Vintage Suede Jacket

When I was home for a wedding over the weekend, I bought a really gorgeous green suede bomber jacket (coming to the blog soon!).  I certainly was not anticipating purchasing one while running errands in my home-town with my mom, but it just happened to be one of those magical finds you sometimes stumble upon at TJMaxx. Anyway, when we got home, my mom disappeared upstairs for a while, and when she came back down, she had this gorgeous cognac suede jacket in hand.  I learned she purchased it when she visited Florence while living abroad in France in 1971, and she wanted me to have it!  I can’t even tell you how thrilled I was.  Not only is it gorgeous and perfect for the Fall season, but what a cool piece of my mom’s history to have.

Stripes

I know I’ve blogged about these camis from Express before.  But they are truly the best and worth mentioning over and over.  Not only do they look great with jeans, slacks, jackets, and skirts, but they are reversible, so you are essentially getting 2 shirts for the price of one.  And in my opinion, there is no better time than a change in season to stock up on basics.  So if you are in the market for a great cami (that comes in tons of prints and solids), then this is the one!

Also, don’t put those white jeans away now that Labor Day has come and gone.  They are perfectly acceptable all year long!

Pockets

It’s hard to beat a dress with pockets. It’s kind of one of those things, once you go pockets, you can never go back.  Right??? So why on earth are dresses with pockets so hard to find sometimes?  Well you are in luck, because today I’ve rounded up some of my favorite dresses (with pockets!) below. How’s that to kick off your Monday?

Cropped

No matter how old you are, I believe there are ways to participate in the trends of the season (with a little tweaking here and there) to make them age appropriate. Take the cropped trend for example. I have been wanting to give this style a try for quite a while, but I’m obviously not going to be running around town showing off my stomach.  So I was pleasantly surprised to find this top that is just long to keep me covered, but just short enough to fall into the cropped category.  It also doesn’t hurt that it’s off-the-shoulder (which is my absolute favorite trend this season)!

I’d love to know, do you guys like to try out modified versions of different trends?

P.S. You’ll have to excuse my wild hair in this post-it was super windy when I took these photos!

Repeat

I originally purchased this Free People dress last summer in pink and wore it for my birthday celebration in Sonoma.  And I loved it so much and got so much wear out of it, that when they brought it back this season, I bought it in this pretty minty/sage color.  And this summer, it is once again one of my favorite things in my closet. It’s also on sale right now, and comes in several other colors.  So if you have been thinking about getting this dress, I would highly recommend it! You’ll get so much wear out of it, I promise it will be worth every penny! PLUS it has pockets this year too!

Although be warned.  It seems to be running a little shorter this year than last year, so I would recommend sizing up for length.

Gingham

I love this little gingham top.  It’s such an easy, breezy piece to just throw on and go. And guess what?  It would be perfect to wear on the 4th of July!  It also comes in a few other colors and prints and is less than $15.  Definitely a great piece to add to your closet this summer!

Neck Candy

Another day, another off-the-shoulder number.  I just can’t seem to help myself when it comes to this trend!  Plus, it’s the perfect neckline to show off my pretty new necklace from French Kande.  Seriously, their jewelry is my FAVORITE.  If you haven’t checked them out yet, trust me, you NEED to!  Oh, and I should mention that my dress is less than $50 too!!

Basic

I’m always on the hunt for good basic tanks during the summer months.  But they are surprisingly hard to find.  I mean really, is it too much to ask for a solid tank that can be dressed up or dressed down, worn with shorts, skirts, and denim, doesn’t shrink when you wash it, and at a great price point?  Apparently so! So when I stumbled on this cute Free People tank, I knew I had to give it a try.  And I’m glad I did, because I’m loving it.  Plus it’s only $20 and comes in a ton of colors.  So if you are like me and looking for a go-to tank, I would highly recommend this one!

Favorites

Today’s outfit is all about staples.  This skirt from JCrew has been a tried and true favorite of mine for the past two seasons.  And apparently I’m not alone, because they keep bringing it back year after year.  It’s just that good.  This tank from Old Navy is another piece that is going to be on heavy rotation in my closet for seasons to come. And these shoes?  Definitely my go-to pair this season (in case you hadn’t noticed!).  Not only are they super cute and comfy (and they go with everything!), but they are also on major sale right now too!
