This adorable sweater caught my eye right away!! I love the super cute embroidery! If you like it fitted go for your regular size, if you would prefer it to be more roomy, then size up 1 size.

I love the slightly oversized fit of this stripe number!! And love how it looks with this military jacket! This jacket is amazing! The fabrication is perfectly drapy. It looks great casual like here or dressed up with a blouse and cute heels!!

Top Old Navy Looks for the Week!

Most stores right now are either in total Back To School mode or are in the middle of transition. This time of year is a mixture of sales or early fall items that you are just not ready for yet. I get it! But there are always those pieces that catch my eye and peak your interest to purchase anyway.

Here are my top Old Navy finds this week even though the store is in total transition!

First of all the stand out of the week or possibly the month for me is the Rock Star Jean!! Now, I have been loving this jean for at least the last 6 years. However, in the recent past 2 years I have to admit that the quality slipped , as well as, the consistency in the sizing. I am so happy to report that has all changed and I couldn’t be more happy!! It is BACK!! The fabrication is high quality (doesn’t feel like they will rip when you sit down), and the sizing is consistent between different pairs!! I am also loving that they are offering the Rock Star in a boot leg too!! I can finally pick up a few new pairs!

Old Navy does baseball tees like no other and this seasons come in beautiful color combos! I loved layering it under this military jacket too! Note the jacket ran a bit big so I would size down 1 size. All this together makes for a perfect brisk day look!

Believe me when I say I was not even thinking about looking at sweaters but this one caught my eye for how light weight it is. Perfect for early fall or even now for those chilly offices. The tunic length is perfect for leggings too! As the fall progresses this Sherpa vest is amazing!!! LOVE!!! Love the look with it layered over the tunic sweater!

Athleta Skort is Amazing!!

My first Athleta purchase has been a winner! This Momentum Skort has checked all the boxes for me and is beyond my expectations!

Key wins- amazing fit (close fit but not super tight), allows for great movement while working out, fabric is light and whisks away sweat, shorts underneath stay in place, AND it looks adorable!

Snag one before they are sold out at this amazing price! Black is in stock in a full size run. Fits tts. I wear a size 4 and the small fits like a dream!!

Back to School – pbk Backpacks and Lunch Boxes

I can’t believe some schools are already heading back to school! My niece and nephew are starting in a week in FL, but I know some schools in GA and AZ have already gone back!

We still have a few weeks left of summer here in the Northeast. My son won’t start 2nd grade till late August. But I have to start getting my ducks in a row sooner than later so I’m not super stressed out right before school starts.

First thing done off my list- his new backpack and lunch box from Pottery Barn Kids!

We got 2 years out of his last backpack (kindergarten and 1st grade). I was so impressed how well his last style held up. He could have used it again this year, it is still in great shape! But he has grown so much, he needs the next size. So we’ll be handing down his last one to his little sister.

Each year though, he needs a new lunch box. I don’t know what they do with them each day at school, but by the end of the school year, the lunch boxes are destroyed and so gross inside!

So I let my son pick out his new favorite styles to be in style in school year. Here he is showing off his new items and he can’t wait to use them on his first day.

All backpacks and lunch boxes are on sale and they ship free! I highly recommend them- a little more than some of the other stores, but based on all the wear and tear he has given them in the past, and how well they have held up, I think they are worth it!

Shop all the styles here

There are also food storage and water bottles that are perfect add-ons to be school ready! shop here

Mackenzie Blue Multi Dino Backpack – My son is wearing a size large and for reference he is 7 years old

Mackenzie Blue Glow-in-the-Dark Shark Lunch Box – We chose the “cold pack” style for this year and we’ve had other styles in the past that have worked well.

Trend Alert: Leopard!

I love Leopard, you seem to love leopard, and the good news is that Leopard will continue to be super important this Fall. It also looks like ladies, such as myself, are experimenting with it more. It’s fun to break out of just using leopard in my accessories and wearing throughout my wardrobe. Looks like for fall it’s becoming more of a basic color or staple. Leopard is the new black!!

If you are like me and ready to wear leopard all over or if you already do I pulled together some great items out there right now to add to your wardrobe to wear now and later!

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.

Rose Gold Footbed Sandals– less than $23

Best Transitional Bootie

I am loving these booties/sandals I just picked up! Love that they look great with shorts, jeans, and skirts! The heel is the perfect height, which is why it works so well with shorts! I also love the “V” cutout on the front of the shoe. It helps to lengthen your leg. Love that!!! These will take you right into the Fall season and will look great paired with jeans and your fav sweater!

Fit True to size! (commission links)
