Favorite Fauxs

JACKET:: Mango (on sale and under $200!) // JEANS:: Mother // SHOES:: Golden Goose // BAG:: Celine // SUNGLASSES:: Le Specs

I've been very, very into outerwear these past few years and have been adding a few pieces to my collection every year. When I saw the color and the price of this faux shearling Moto jacket I knew I needed to order it. It's extremely soft and cozy. I 100% should have ordered the next size down as it does run on the roomier side. It's from Mango and they are currently running a huge Columbus Day Sale where you can take 20%-30% off depending how much you spend! I also love this faux fur option from Mango

There are so many good faux pieces out right now and I've rounded up my favorites below! PS: also have this grey one and love it!

Night Out Tops

TOP:: Tibi // JEANS:: Mother // SHOES:: Ann Taylor // JACKET:: Driftwood (similar here and 25% off) // SUNGLASSES:: Le Specs // BAG:: Gucci 

I had jury duty yesterday morning AND a very sick kid at home and had no idea if they were going to keep me around all day or select me for the jury. When I was checking in, this nice officer asked when I was due and I told him basically any day and he immediately swooped in and told me he was going to walk me up to the Jury selection room and get me dismissed ASAP. He was so kind and I was so grateful he cared enough to help a very pregnant and tired woman out. I was able to race back home and bring Charlie to the doctor. He has a bad case of croup (which his sister so kindly passed along to him) and he's feeling pretty miserable. I'm hoping everyone gets healthy and stays healthy when baby comes. 

On to today's post...Every season I like to pick up a few new "going out" tops. My criteria for a "going out" top has changed drastically over the years. In college it basically meant anything covered in sequins. And now it pretty much means anything that's not a sweatshirt. You know what else has changed drastically over the years? My criteria for "going out." I know my siblings (if they are reading this) are probably laughing because going out for me these days is dinner and bed by 10pm 9pm. 

I bought this pretty velvet top by Tibi and think it will be perfect to dress up or down from now and through the winter. I love how velvet has made a huge comeback and was so happy so many of you appreciated my Limited Too mention in stories a few weeks ago. Velvet and the Limited Too = my middle school dream come true. This top by IRO was my go-to top last winter and it's now on major sale. And this Joie top would have not only met my college criteria but it is also a top I love now.  It would be so pretty around the holidays and is currently a part of Bloomingdale's Friends & Family sale.

I just saw this top by Rebecca Taylor and while it's on the more casual end of the spectrum, I really really love it. It's multifunctional as it can go from day to night very easily. It also comes in this color and this one is a part of Rebecca Taylor's Friends & Family sale! Check out all of my favorite tops below! Xo

Friday Favorites :: Under $100

SWEATER:: H&M // JEANS:: Mother // SHOES:: Nine West (similar here) // JACKET:: Driftwood (similar here) // SUNGLASSES:: Le Specs (part of the shopbop sale!) // BAG:: Gucci // NECKLACES:: Gold & Gray, ASHA, Temple St. Clair 

A $12.99 sweater that I actually love...who knew?! When I bought this sweater from H&M, I envisioned myself wearing it tucked into my high waisted denim. Obviously that is not how I can wear it these days but I'm hoping that maybe I might be able to do that a few months from now (fingers crossed). This sweater inspired me to do a large roundup of under $100 style steals. Check them out below! Xo

JEANS:: Mother // BAG:: Staud (both included in the sale!) SHOES:: Steve Madden 

Less than two weeks before this baby comes and I'm slowly (very slowly) checking things off my to do list. I've had a crazy busy week with one sick kid (croup ugh) and tons of doctor appointments for me. I still need to order a diaper bag, pack my hospital bag, order some more baby supplies and clean and sterilize some bottles and my new Spectra pump. I'm still trying to figure out the best storage bottles to use with the Spectra. Does anyone have any suggestions? Send me an email or DM on Instagram and I would be so appreciative!

The Shopbop Sale is still going strong and I've actually made multiple orders- mostly shoes and boots. I always over order because their return process is the easiest out there. I ended up buying these booties and these mules. I bought this sweatshirt- love the color and the sleeves. I love this button down and obsessed with this shawl sweater. And this coat looks like the coziest thing on the planet.  

Here are some more favorites!

Shopbop Sale

SWEATER:: Free People // JEANS:: Mother (non maternity on sale!) // SHOES:: Loeffler Randall // BAG:: Chanel 

Sharing this quick post because I'm running off to the doctor this morning and once I'm back I'll update it a little bit. Shopbop is kicking off their Stock Up sale with early access for Shopbop VIPs: 20% off your purchase under $500 and 25% off your $500+ purchase with code STOCKUP18. It will be ready to shop for everyone tomorrow! (maybe the code might work for non VIPs today- you will have to give it a try!)

I'll be back later with a breakdown of my most wanted items and what I'll be purchasing but for now here is a boutique with some favorites!

**UPDATE:: I showed up to my appointment to find out it was never scheduled for today but scheduled for November! Eeesh

Ok on to my favorites from the sale::
  • TOPS:: I also love finding cute blouses and tops to wear out to dinner or during the day under a chunk cardigan. I love the sleeves and the cut of this one and the price is pretty good. I actually bought this top last week and looooove it. I just took some pictures of it yesterday and think it will be the perfect "night out" top all fall and winter long. 
  • DRESSES:: If anyone has a fall wedding coming up I think this dress would be so pretty.

Weekend Sales

SWEATER:: Anthropologie (on sale!) // JEANS:: Paige (old) // BOOTIES:: Frye // BAG:: Celine // NECKLACES:: Asha and family charms

Happy FALL! And it actually feels a bit like Fall right now- there's a bit of a chill in the air and my backyard is oddly covered in leaves. Love this time of year!

I wanted to share a quick sale with you. Anthropologie is offering 20% off all clothing and home this weekend (and shoes seem to be working for me too when I add them to my cart!) for perk members. It's so easy to sign up to be an Anthro Perk member- and once you do, you get access to exclusive sales and discounts!

The sweater I'm wearing above is beyond comfy, cozy, soft, etc. And I plan on wearing it all fall and winter long. I love the winter white color and it also comes in a pretty camel color.  

A few more things I'm loving::
  • This grey sherpa Moto jacket- I can picture myself pairing it with my white sweater above and denim (preferably non maternity insert laughing emoji) and some booties. Going to order! 
  • This textured cardigan. I love an oversized cardigan especially when the weather isn't too cold and you can wear it as an outwear piece. 

I've rounded up some more favorites below! Xo
