Friday Favorites :: Weekend Sales

TOP:: Topshop (on sale!) // BOOTS:: Stuart Weitzman // BAG:: Marie Turnor

Happy Friday, everyone!! It was a long week on my end. Very little sleep and kids fighting colds. It's just that time of year! There are some great sales going on this weekend and we thought we'd do a quick round up::
  • Anthropologie :: The Happy Harvest Event! Love the name of the sale just as much as I love the sale! You can take 15-25% off your purchase depending on what you buy. I popped by the store the other day and there are so many cozy sweaters right now. Sleeping on Snow is probably my favorite brand there right now because everything they make is super soft. I just bought a sweater by them and I can't find it online! It is the softest wrap, cardigan that you could just throw on- check out our Instagram stories to see it and if you like it I would definitely pop by your local store to see if they have it. It also comes in a dark grey. Loving this sweater as well! Kaitlin has this tee and I'm thinking I might buy it online (couldn't find it in the stores). 
  • Nordstrom :: Nordstrom has a ton of great fall finds marked down. My top keeps selling out and it's back in stock in a few sizes! I also love these grey booties. These Rag & Bone booties are 40% off and so cute.  This sweatshirt is on sale for $29 and comes in five colors and I love the bell sleeves. 
  • LOFT:: 40% off tops, sweaters, and jewelry. This sweater is in my cart. 
  • LULU & GEORGIA:: 25% off sitewide with code HBD. Love this on top of some coffee table books. This would look so cute in a playroom or little girl's room. They also have a great selection of art- I have always loved this and this print!

IRO Tee's & Mother Jeans

JEANS:: Mother // TEE:: IRO // SHOES:: Got these in Positano - but identical to Tod's ( here and here) // BAG:: Celine // RINGS:: Stephanie Gottlieb & Cartier

A tee and jeans is my numero uno, my top choice of an outfit. I know it's incredibly simple but it's what I feel best in. A great fitting pair of jeans ( currently into these ones) and a tee whether its a graphic tee or an IRO one, they all look great when styled correctly.
When I go simple with jeans and a tee I like to amp it up with a nice colored bag. I love this one and this one for less pricey options! Although I'm wearing pretty casual driving loafers here, I would totally throw on heels, tuck my tee in a little better and put on these hoops and voile I have my nighttime look ( probably just a few blocks over for dinner lol)! 

Jeans and a tee is incredibly versatile because of the accessories and shoes - you literally have endless options on how your look could turn out! Pairing my IRO tee and Mother jeans with my driving loafers (really love these) was a nice weekend look and perhaps I would have worn sneakers if it was Friday at work!
My tee from IRO is really unique with all the little holes and is definitely one of my "dressier" tees - I know that sounds confusing since it has holes in it but it isn't just your average tee. It was definitely pricier and the fabric is a really nice, slightly heavier linen blend. I also love the IRO tee in this color and this color. 

I truly believe you can never have enough jeans and tee's so that's why I linked my favorite IRO tee's and Mother jeans below! You can achieve this look at any price point but it does pay to invest in a few good tee's!

Moto Jacket :: Fall Finds for Under $200

JACKET:: Driftowood // TOP:: Leith (similar here) // JEANS:: Mother Denim (similar here) // SHOES:: Vince (similar here on sale!) // BAG:: Chanel // NECKLACE:: ASHA 

I love finding a good style steal that doesn't sacrifice great quality and that's exactly what I got when I bought this suede Moto Jacket. I found it on Shopbop and fell in love with the color. It's called a "smoke grey" but it's honestly more of a blue-grey which I love. I think it's a great color for fall that meshes well with greys, blacks, and even navy. It also comes in a pretty dark olive color. I paired it with this incredibly soft bodysuit I found at Nordstrom. I'm just throwing it out there, I've never owned a bodysuit before but I decided to give this one a try because I loved the sleeves and thought it would be great with high-waisted denim or a skirt. It's also another style steal at $59. It sold out in so many sizes but I found this one by Madewell which is so similar and also a style steal!

I get SO many questions about my Vince slides and I'm always so bummed to tell people that they are from last year and no where to be found online! I've been on the hunt to find the most similar style for you guys and I think this one is the best match so far. They are also on sale for $59. There are so many shoes I want to try out right now on the Saks Off 5th site!

I love finding budget friendly buys and I decided to round up a ton at the bottom of this post!

PS:: Is there anything else you would like us to post about?? Send as an email or DM on Instagram!

Bar Cart Style

Before I moved into this apartment a little over two years ago I had always wanted a bar cart to style. My mom actually gifted us this one and I immediately got to work on how I wanted to style it. I will have to give my husband credit here - he took quite an interest in how to display our decanters AND he took the champagne to another level - literally! I had initially started out with two racks of the Veuve but he took it to three!

I thought it would be fun to incorporate cocktail books on the top shelf since they are smaller than the average coffee table book. Keeping the liquor on the tray to the left, I styled the right not only with the two books but with a fun bowl filled with matchbooks from our favorite restaurants and or special places we have been. I also have displayed ( I will admit I have never used) these cocktail napkins that have come to be a favorite go to house warming gift of mine. I LOVE the fact that they are all animal themed and have the wittiest lines. If you look close i have another little animal peaking out - it's a gold bunny bottle opener.

Also on the top shelf nestled in with the bottles, are fun party straws that look very cute displayed or actually in a cocktail! Anthropologie has fantastic glasses, plates and anything home - that's where I got the gold rimmed glasses. The gold shaker I thought was a fun twist on your average silver one and another piece to display that tied together the "cocktail" part of the cart.

I am kind of a freak when it comes to decor pieces. I constantly see "knick knacks" if you will that I want to keep switching in and out of our bar cart and our two etageres. Let me clarify I'm not a clutter person BUT I do happen to itch for change which isn't always great. I like to move things around or subtract and add pieces here and there. At this very second while linking things for this post I am thinking to myself oh wow I really like this and I like this...

Back to the cart! As for the bottom shelf I found these super cool acrylic wine racks from CB2 - which I highly recommend for basically anything acrylic in your home if you do not want to spend a fortune ( we have these as well). Since the bottom shelf's main display is the champagne, I wanted to give a little color to the glass ice bucket and decanters so that the bottom shelf wasn't primarily gold and green.

What is special about the yellow "Photographs" book is that the island we went to on the second leg of our honeymoon is featured. We have never come across anything mentioning Benguerra and this book did! After carefully choosing the decanters to put on the bottom, I thought it would be cool and to kind of tie in the collection of matchbooks - and fill the ice bucket with wine corks! Another collection that has been built overtime made our bar cart a little more special. I have to say my most favorite thing about the bar cart isn't actually on it. It's above it! When I came across this photo of Roger Moore as James Bond, I knew it would be perfect for this space. I'm pretty obsessed with it!

It's fairly easy to style a bar cart - get a great candle, some fun glasses and matches and work your way around these easy to find pieces and of course get together a few bottles of liquor and it will start to come together. I linked a bunch of pieces below to get you started!

Friday Favorites :: Slides

SLIDES:: Gucci // JEANS:: L'agence // TOP:: Loft (similar here) // SUNNIES:: Ray Ban

I remember hunting down these Gucci's and finally found them when my family and I took our trip to London almost one year ago. They were totally worth the splurge but there are SO many more styles out there that you do not have to splurge on. The pair I'm wearing today were a total steal. They are on sale PLUS an additional 25% off with the Bloomies Friends & Family promotion. When I put them on this morning I felt like I was "sliding" into the weekend so that's what prompted this post!

Just yesterday I ordered these from Saks Off Fifth- I always find really great deals and steals on here! Slides or mules whatever you call them, have become a staple in my work wear, and my weekend wear. They can easily be worn with jeans, pants, a dress or skirt plus can be dressed up or down. The slides also don't have to be flats! There are ones with a chunky heel ( kind of like a backless bootie) that I absolutely love!
