So, it looks like turtleneck sweaters are my thing this year!

I find a good turtleneck is classic and never goes out of style. These styles, that I found this year are all different silhouettes. Tunic, oversized, fitted, and cropped

Turtleneck sweater

These 2 are actually the same sweater from J Crew. I loved it so much I picked it up in 2 colors. A neutral and a pop of color! This one is not totally fitted but not oversized, amazing soft to the touch, and classic. I will have these for years!

Ivory sweater / grey sweater

The next 2 are from H&M. 2 very different looks. The grey sweater is slightly cropped with a slight oversized fit. I love the balloon sleeves. Super stylish. The ivory sweater is tunic length also slightly oversized. This one looks great with leggings and also does a good messy tuck with jeans.

Turtleneck sweater

This Amazon sweater is unbelievable quality!! I knew I liked it when I ordered it, but was not expecting this quality! It is a heavier weight, soft to the touch, and a tunic length. I will say this length isn’t too long though so looks great with leggings and jeans.

Black turtleneck sweater

You can never go wrong with this classic fitted sweater from Banana Republic. This looks great alone or layered under and blazer or cardigan. Absolutely perfect and a must have for any wardrobe!

What is your Face Mask Style?

Are you a molded face mask person? Or do you like the pleated fabric style? Or do simply prefer the disposable style? Or you may be like me and wear them all!

I have found that depending on what my plans are for the day determines which face mask I will be wearing. I will I be mostly outside? Is it super hot out? Am I going to the mall? Here are some of my favorites for all occasions!

Molded Face Masks

Stripe & Gingham (2 pack) / Floral (3 pack)

I love these styles! I love the seersucker and ruffles on the the stripe and gingham. The floral is part of a 3 pack that comes with beautiful prints!

Pleated Material Face Masks

This 3 pack shown / others available (all are super cute)

I find the pleated type to be more flexible with how they fit.

Disposable Face Masks

Blue / Black / White / Pink

Loving that even the disposable types now are being offered in your choice of colors!! The pink is adorable!

No matter what your face mask style is, looks like we will be wearing them for a long time! This is more than ok with me! As long as we are all staying safe!

Colleen’s Picks!!

The Cross Body/ Shoulder bag!

Quilted Bag / Web Strap

As my #1 favorite time this month, this bag will be on heavy rotation all spring, if not used everyday. It comes in 22 colors to choose from (mine is Brown 2). I love everything about it:

1) It is vegan leather and is 5 star rated!

2) The beautiful strap that comes with it is removable so you can change up the look! I am wearing it as a cross body, but it can also be adjusted to a shoulder bag as well!

3) This bag is 8” long, so it fits a nice size wallet!

4) Lastly it has a nice outside pocket that I use for my phone and a nice size inside pocket as well.

Quilted Bag

Puff Sleeve Top!

Top / Belt

This super sweet top is right on trend. I choose the pink but it comes in 15 other colors, which are ALL so good! The sleeve hits right above the elbow. The body is straight with a little stretch. I am wearing a medium for the length, which was recommended in the comments. This top will be so easy to dress up for work and down for the weekends!!

Liz’s Picks!!

Knit Romper:

This romper will be a staple item all summer! Made of high quality knit fabric that is super soft and drapes well. There is a key hole back to make it very easy to put on and take off. And there are pockets!! Top can be worn off the shoulder or as a regular scoop neck style.

Sleeveless Jumpsuit:

I am so excited that I picked up this item!! So versatile and I can’t wait to wear it! Soft knit fabric for extra comfort. Nice details including drawstring waist, pockets, and a tighter knit on the hem so you can wear them at your ankle or slightly pulled up on your calf. This item can be styled in so many ways: by itself, paired with a cute jacket, dressed up or down- have fun with it!

Embroidered Top from Amazon

This is the first season I’ve shopped for apparel and fashion items on Amazon and I’m definitely on the Amazon bandwagon! This embroidered blouse is one of my favorite items I’ve picked up so far. The bright embroidery pattern is perfect for summer. The ruffle sleeves give a feminine look to the blouse. And the looser fit will be extra comfortable in the warmer weather. This top will be a show stopper for both casual looks or if you want to be a little more dressed up with jeans, heels, or wedges. I’m really loving both looks with my white denim, though it would also pair great with regular denim or colored shorts or pants. (commission links)

Sleeveless Embroidered Pom Pom Blouse– Available in 5 colors and less than $23! I followed the sizing recommendation to size up one size, and it was definitely the right choice. I bought a size medium when I normally wear a small.

Other items shown:

White Denim Shorts– runs tts

Rose Gold Footbed Sandals– less than $23

White Denim Skinny Jeans

Navy Canvas Espadrille Wedges

Gap Girlfriend Jean

I am a Gap jean girl through and through. Without a doubt, they fit me the best. I’m on the shorter side (5’3″) and am curvy in the waist and hips. My go-to size is a size 4 or 27. Depending on the silhouette, I wear regular or ankle length. Besides the fit, what I love most about Gap jeans is that the washes and style details are always on trend.

They are also high quality jeans that don’t break the bank! Do I love the high end labels with the soft fabrics and perfect washes?! Absolutely! But as a mom of two little ones, I don’t have a lot of extra $ to spend on myself. I still want to look cute though and wear the latest styles. So Gap prices allow me to buy a new style or two each season, without all the mom guilt!

Also, I’m lucky to work in an environment that is casual. And on most days you will find me in jeans and a top. My go-to style is the Skinny, ankle length. I probably have 5 or 6 different pairs of that style in all different washes. But when I’m not in the mood to wear skinny denim, or if I’m going for another look, my other go-to is the Girlfriend jean.

The Girlfriend jean is a more relaxed fit. It comes in a mid-rise that sits more at your hips than at the high point of your waist. It has an easy fit through the hips, thighs, and legs. Definitely not as tight as the skinny! I find the fit to be a perfect combination of relaxed but not sloppy. I love to wear my Girlfriend jeans with tees, blouses, sweaters….really any type of top. Tops look great tucked in or out. The jeans also look great with so many shoe options: sandals, flip flops, sneakers, booties….so versatile!

Here is the latest pair I picked up (shown in photo). They are a medium wash with a little bit of destruction, but not too much, so I can still wear them to work 🙂 Currently on sale AND another 50% off! That comes to less than $22! Crazy! Shop here (affiliate links)

Perfect T-Shirt Dress

A t-shirt dress is a summer staple! I found a new favorite this summer from Loft’s Lou and Grey line.

So many great things to rave about this dress!

First, I love the lightweight cotton slub fabric. I don’t always want to be wearing a dress in a poly blend in the summer heat. Cotton is perfect to keep you cool and look cool in the heat.

Second, the fit is perfect for my body type. Often the t-shirt dresses I find are very tight on my hips and are too short. This style is roomy but not sloppy. It hits just above my knee providing enough coverage so I’m not self-conscious all day. I would size up if in between sizes. I’m wearing a small and it fits perfectly. I could have gotten away with an XS but since it’s cotton, I didn’t want to risk it shrinking a little in the wash and then be too tight or short.

Third, it’s so versatile. I’ve worn it to work and taken it on vacation to the beach and lake. Bonus- it’s super easy to pack!

I love all the colors offered, but I fell in love with this yellow. Such a bright and beautiful color for Summer! Now the yellow is only $18!! Many other great colors to choose from which are also on sale. (affiliate links)
