Random roundup

Happy Friday!! I am in SoCal as I write this, and I'm torn between sleep and online shopping. There are just so many good sales right now, I don't know how to deal!! In case you missed my post yesterday, I recapped some of my wardrobe staples should you need shopping inspiration. You can also check out my SHOP tab up above for other pieces over which I am currently obsessing!

I take outfit selfies anytime I leave the house in something, true story. They end up accumulating on my phone quickly, and I decided months ago, that Fridays were the best time to share these random selfies with you so they properly make the blog. But, since they multiply like rabbits, I end up with a backlog of outfits. This bunch happens to be from around the Nordstrom Anniversary sale at the end of July. I tell you this because many, if not all of the items I purchased during the anniversary sale are back ON sale now! So, if there were pieces you coveted that you decided to pass on, the shopping gods are giving you a second chance. Don't blow it!

Let's get started!

Jacket: Express | Necklace: Target | Top: Halogen (half off!) | Watch: D&G (shop other white watches HERE) | Bottoms: Express (similar) | Shoes: Vince Camuto (great option here)

Bag: Rebecca MinkoffTop: JCrewNecklace: Kate Spade | Bottoms: Express | Shoes: Louise et Cie

Top: JCrew (on sale!) | Bag: LongchampShorts: JCrew Factory | Sandals: Steven by Steve Madden

Vest: JCrew Factory | Top: Express | Necklace: Tasha (half off!) | Bottoms: Current Elliott (40% off!) | Flats: Halogen (other colors here)

Top: Express | Necklace: MOD | Bottoms: Hue | Heels: Valentino

Lots of good stuff in this post! And now that I'm done with it, I think I may do a little online shopping before I go to sleep. Sorry not sorry. Express is having a 40% off sale right now, and thanks to this picture on Instagram, I won a $500 gift card. How freaking awesome is that?! Now to figure out what is worthy enough to spend this free money on……

Happy shopping and enjoy the long weekend! Please report back and let me know what you buy!

EDIT: Sooooo, just as I was going to hit "publish" on this post, I just realized I already posted 3 out of these 5 outfits in this recap post here. Lucky for me, they are relevant again since all this stuff is on sale, so we will just call it blogging fate verses a fashion blogger problem. Because it is almost midnight and I am not rewriting this post! Please still love me and pardon the accidental rerun!!

Shopping list

In preparation for the weekend, and inevitable holiday sales, I thought it was a good time to share some of my favorite pieces with you just in case you needed some shopping list inspiration. You're welcome!

First, I've noticed on Instagram that I get great engagement on posts where I show side by side looks of the same pieces styled different ways. I created a hashtag on Instagram called #myoutfitremix. One of my virtual friends @kristikay__ told me that the next time she wants to shop, she'll just click on my hashtag to figure out what she needs. And that sparked the idea for this post! Here are a few of my recent remix posts. Perhaps you'll find something you need in this bunch!

The perfect lightweight military jacket: Exact here

The ivory vest: similar here

My favorite portofino: exact here

Neon heels: Exact here, budget option here

Peplum striped jacket: similar here

Wine colored skinnies: my latest acquisition here

And if all that doesn't spark anything for you, if you haven't already noticed, I added a "SHOP" tabby up top below my blog header. No, I haven't opened my own boutique, though that would be fun! I basically changed my "Things I love" tab to be this shop tab, which is a curated list I will update at least weekly of my current obsessions - things I'm stalking, or things I've recently acquired of which I can't get enough. It's also a great way for me to keep tabs on all the things I want! But I hope it's just as useful for you as it is for me!

What are you shopping for this weekend?!

Greyed out

Sunnies: Tom Ford | Necklace: Kendra Scott (c/o) | Wallet: Chanel | Rings: BCBG, Topshop | Top: JCrew Factory (option) | Bracelet: Tiffany & Co. | Bottoms: American Eagle (option) | Heels: Kate Spade (option)

This necklace is everything, you guys. I am absolutely, one thousand percent in love with it. And what's funny is, when I put this outfit on, it was just meh before I added any jewelry. The top has a boyish fit, and when I paired it with black skinnies, it was a big snoozefest. Then I added this necklace and my eyes turned into hearts. A lightbulb turned on and I grabbed my silver heels. All of a sudden, I'm obsessed with this outfit.

Today is my Friday and I'm a bit stressed thinking about everything I have to do!!! The days leading up to a trip are always the most hectic. It will all end up being ok, but having to pack and all of that just wears me out! And I have to remember to get dog food. And pay bills. And somehow make it to the tailor. And paint my nails…. Who wants to help me?
