Wear to Work Summer Looks

It’s fun to be creative with wear to work looks in the warmer months! It’s a great opportunity to add color and different fabrications that might not be dressy enough in Fall and Winter.

Here are my top 3 looks from J. Crew that will be perfect for my work this Summer. I think all items can be dressed up or down which add versatility to your wardrobe.

All styles are 40% OFF! So hurry! Use code SHOP40 (commission links).

Styles photographed left to right:

Sleeveless Cotton Poplin Dress in Vivid Fuchsia– Comes to less than $60! Fits tts.

Wrap-tie Chambray Jumpsuit – Runs slightly big. I sized down to a size 2 when I normally wear size 4.

Vintage Cotton V-Neck T-Shirt – Less than $18! Fits tts. Wearing size small so I had some extra length and room to knot the tee at the waist.

Tiered Midi Skirt in Floral Print– My exact skirt only has limited sizes left, but it’s a great price at $54. Tons of other great skirts to choose from on sale. Shop them here.

Spring Break Style

Easter and Passover are almost here. So in the Northeast that means it will be spring break time! Last year we were lucky enough to spend spring break in Florida with family. But this year we will be on a staycation! But that doesn’t mean I can’t dream about flying somewhere warm, preferably near a beach. I put together my fake packing list. And if you are heading on vacation, hopefully it will give you some outfit inspiration!

You will look so stylish by the pool or at the beach in these looks from Target or J.Crew. Since having 2 kids, I’m not very confident in a bikini. Plus, I have to be able to run around after them and I need to make sure my swimsuit will stay in place! These styles do the job but still make me feel young and trendy.

Safe travels!

Amazon Find- Straw Bags

Spring and summer wardrobes are often filled with lighter, brighter color palettes and softer, more lightweight fabrications. In these warmer months, our accessories need an update as well to complete the perfect looks. Straw or raffia bags are a great way to add some texture and interest to your outfit, but still keep your look light and appropriate for the season.

Here are my top straw/raffia finds from Amazon. All are amazing deals for under $35! (Commission Links)

Large Straw Beach Tote Bag with Pom Poms and Inner Pouch -Vegan Leather Handles
Large Beach Tote with Pom Poms
Love how colorful this tote is and the pom poms add a fun twist to a classic shaped bag. This would be great to compliment a colorful outfit, or to be that pop of color with a neutral outfit.

Navy Fringe Bag

I couldn’t resist picking up this bag for only $12! I love the fringe and crochet detail. It looks much more luxurious of a bag for a very affordable price. I also like the navy color. Navy is my favorite neutral in summer, and can be paired with all colors. So I know it will be very versatile!

Birthday Dinner #OOTD

38….here I come!

Such a great day celebrating my birthday.

Enjoyed ice cream cake with the kiddos before dinner! (Doesnt everyone do dessert then dinner?!)

Then my husband took me out to eat. We don’t eat out much, especially during the week.But since it was a special occasion, I wanted to dress in some of my favorite pieces.

This jcrew silk wrap top is a tried and true staple in my closet. So flattering and great quality. Fits tts, I am wearing a size 4.

The leopard pumps are a new purchase and I’ve already gotten so much use out of them. Perfect heel height and very comfortable. Fit tts, I am wearing a size 8.

I’m a gap jeans girl. I’ve started to branch out lately, but I always come back to their skinny and jeggings styles. They fit my body type perfectly, maintain their shape, and come in so many washes and styles. These jeggings are my favorite for their fit and classic wash. Fit tts, I am wearing a size 27.

For fun, I wore these tassle earrings that added a little extra fun to the look. My pair are sold out, but I found a great alternative on Amazon for less than $10. Click the link above!

I felt great in all of these favorite items on my special day!
