In My Closet

I found this BEAUTIFUL top last week while killing some time before an appointment and fell in love. It came home with me and I was super excited about it... but then I found it on sale on another site yesterday morning! That always seems to happen to me but c'est la vie, right? It grabbed the attention of our Instagram followers so I decided to feature it on this week's In My Closet post. It also comes in black- if your size is sold out you can find it here (on sale), here, and here.

The back is sheer but you can definitely throw a cami under it if you don't like the sheerness of it.

I love a good ballet flat and I especially love a good ballet flat when they are under $60. They also come in a pretty camel, pink, and black!

I never used to be a stripe person but they have grown on me this past year. I love an easy tee to throw on with jeans- this one is perfect (and only $35) and can be thrown in the wash. Speaking of jeans, these AG ones are SO comfortable and don't stretch out. Plus they are cropped which means vertically challenged people like myself don't have to shorten them :) And of course my favorite slides!

Friday Favorites :: Rails

It's no secret Chrissy & I love a soft plaid or chambray button down. They are perfect with shorts or jeans or even as a cover-up to the beach. The babe posing above is wearing a dress from their Spring/Summer 17' collection and I am loving it!

I have a few Rails plaid shirts that I love to wear day to night. They are slim enough so you don't feel like you're wearing a baggy plaid shirt fit for a farmer. The Rail's button downs are perfectly tailored but still have that slight slouch.

They also off monogramming on a few of their denim and chambray pieces. I am in love with the monogrammed chambray!

Deals & Steals

If I had to describe my style in three words it would probably be casual, comfortable and feminine. I live in denim: denim jeans, tops, dresses and I tend to wear things I can easily throw in the wash. Yes, I love to dress up every now and then but my typical day to day style is super relaxed because I spend my days chasing around three little ones. While I do like to invest in items that I know will grow with me (like nice bags-new favorite, cashmere sweaters etc) I love finding affordable pieces that I can easily let go of after a year or two of wear. My post last week highlighted some of my most recent finds from the Gap. The off the shoulder top I'm wearing above is definitely a favorite of mine and I can't wait to wear it once the temperatures start to warm up. I spent the past few nights searching my favorite sites for some affordable pieces and found some great things!

A quick round up of some favorites::
  1. This tee- love the detail on the sleeves and that it's $35. I'm obviously drawn to the gray!
  2. These jeans. I just bought these MOTHER ones (wearing them above) but I love this less expensive version. 
  3. So many pretty tops- love this one and this one.

In My Closet

Ok we admit we haven't put up an In My Closet post in quite some time (name and purpose of our blog- insert embarrassed emoji here) and we are going to try and keep these posts coming as frequently as we can.

Major sale alert! This Cinq a Sept top is majorly marked down and is super cute on. I know it looks a little boxy hanging but it has a few semi sheer panels and looks really cute on- I would have snapped a pic wearing it but I haven't gotten out of my pjs in days. Still fighting this virus my kids passed on to me. Such good sharers! The top also comes in black and is available in more sizes here.

Love the idea of throwing this tassel on to your bag to change it up a bit. I put mine on my beach bag when we went to Florida. This particular Clare V. pom pom tassel is from the Joie boutique by me and is currently sold out. But there are a ton of other colors available here

I posted this pic to our Instagram yesterday. For me, I can never have too many basics. My day to day life requires me to be dressed in clothing that can be thrown in the wash after a major spit up, spill, or for when my shirt is mistaken for a tissue. I can always trust that the Gap will have exactly what I need and their new items for spring are perfect. I bought this tee and this sweatshirt (love the tie detail) and I ordered quite a few things online last week and I can't wait to share them with you when they get here! 

That's all I've got for you today- Short but sweet! Kaitlin will be sharing some of her latest finds with you next week so stay tuned!! xo

Friday Favorites :: Gap

It had been quite some time since I last popped into the Gap and I was pleasantly surprised at what I saw when I stopped by my local store the other day- one of the items that caught my eye was this cute tie sweatshirt. I was even more surprised at what I found online when I got home- so many good tops for spring. I ended up purchasing a few- one sold out already! I ordered this off the shoulder one and this chambray one.

Did you all catch Gisele at the Super Bowl? Of course you did, the camera was pretty much always on her. As much as I seriously dislike her (I know that's terrible but I have my reasons) she still is one of the most beautiful humans on the planet. Can we all agree that in today's world of TOO much makeup (i.e. contouring and the Kardashians) it's seriously refreshing (and at times nauseating) to see natural beauties like Gisele? Seriously though- how, how did she look so beautiful and so put together after what I can imagine were the most stressful four hours of her life? And what I loved the most was her laid back game day style. No crazy heels or tight fitting outfit for G. The Sam & Lavi chambray top she wore to the game reinvigorated my love for denim shirts. Which brings me back to the Gap. They have so many good options right now- I bought this one!

And in case you suddenly have become intrigued with football's most popular couple (it pains me to even type those words) check out their strict diet. No caffeine? No thank you...
