The perfect $40 jacket for fall days + nights out

IMG_9571IMG_9573IMG_9574IMG_9572IMG_9579IMG_9576IMG_9575IMG_9580IMG_9578Jacket / Jeans (On sale!!) / Cami / Heels (Similar) / Necklace

I am LOVING Target’s new fall selection (but really when am I not loving anything from Target)…They really are killing it right now. They are coming out with more and more designer dupes that are so affordable.

I love this jacket because it works during the day and you can also wear it out at night. It’s super easy to dress up or down, and it looks designer but its only $40! It comes in a few other colors too 🙂 Also, my jeans are currently on sale for $21.99 and originally are $88! They are by far the comfiest jeans I own.

Quay Australia Aviators – Marked down to $29!!

express

Express is the perfect place to buy your “going out” closet staples. The entire site is currently 40% off and womens jeans are 50% off! 

One Shoulder Tie Tank – Only $15!!

Sequin Mini Skirt – $41. I wore this last weekend to celebrate my 22nd birthday and I loved it. Just the right amount of extra 😉 

Strapless Sweetheart Romper – $41. I love this because it’s simple – but you can do a lot with it! PicMonkey Image-6

It was not until recently that I started shopping at Abercrombie again, they have so many cute fall items right now and their sales are great! 

Snap-Up Fleece – I am obsessed. Comes in many different colors! 

Cozy Swing Dress – This also comes in different colors and I think it’s perfect for fall! 

Lace Trim Cami – These are SUPER in right now. The reason I like mine so much is because you can wear it under a lot of different cardigans and blazers, or by itself!

Goodnight Macaroon is the perfect place to get sweaters and cardigans. They have so many unique styles that you might not see a lot of other places. It has been one of my favorites for a while now. 

“Silvia” Eyelet Halter Neck Lightweight Sweater / “Pansy” Two Tone High Low V-Neck Sweater / “Acadia” Fuzzy Fleece Sweater 


 

With fall approaching – what kind of blog posts do you want to see?! What are you guys looking to add to your closet right now?! Let me know in the comments or DM me 🙂

A day in Chicago + my new favorite closet staple

Dress / Wedges / Necklace

Yesterday I spent the day in Chicago at the Merchandise Mart with a co-worker returning some fabric samples and picking up some tile samples. This was surprisingly only my third or fourth time in the Mart and I forgot how stunning the showrooms are. I could spend all day there! After the Mart, we went to The Hampton Social and it was my first time there – seriously so cute! I have seen a ton of photos taken there so of course, we had to go!

I mainly wanted to do this blog post because I finally got my hands on this dress that I have been eyeing FOREVER! It is so flattering and I have seen it on so many people styled so many different ways. It is a little on the pricier side but I am so glad I finally got it. It is so comfortable and so easy to dress up or down! I love that you can wear it now but you are also able to style it in the Winter, Spring, and Fall! It is the perfect little black dress, and I will definitely be getting it in other colors!

This is the same BP. Lace Trimmed Cami – I love that you can style it so many ways all year long! Hopefully, it will be restocked 🙂

This was my first time ever shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and wow it was totally worth it! In my opinion, shopping this sale will save me soo much money in the end because throughout the rest of the year I would’ve shopped more if I hadn’t picked these things up for such great deals! Two things that are not pictured that I also got from the sale are these Zella Live in High Waist Leggings which are the BEST! I did not expect to love them as much as my Lulu Lemon leggings but I do! I also got this basic tee in black that is marked down to only $11 (will hopefully be restocked in more sizes and colors?!) I obviously didn’t go too crazy because being on a college budget doesn’t stop when you graduate! 😉

Spicing it up with stilettos

Top / Jeans / Stilettos / Monogram Necklace / Louis Vuitton Neverfull

Sometimes all it takes to spice up your outfit is throwing on a pair of heels – it seriously changes the entire look! If you’re still wanting to keep it casual for during the day, you can never go wrong with ripped jeans and a blouse! This blouse is one of my go-to’s..tie sleeve blouses are really in right now. My heels from Akira are currently only $25! I’ve had these stilettos for almost four years now, and they’ve held up pretty nicely. Over winter break I got these Hollister jeans for only $25 – keep an eye out for markdowns on their denim, they have randomly had really great sales! I had forgotten how much I love Hollister jeans..Those and Express denim are my two favorites right now!

For a while I never had the guts to wear heels around, maybe just for photos or a blog post, but otherwise I felt as if people would think I was way overdressed. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not worth worrying about what others think so much, especially when it comes to fashion. And in my vocabulary, there is no such thing as being
overdressed”
. As cheesy as it may be – my motto has always been “you look good, you feel good, and you do good” and that’s something I live by!

Nordstrom sale favorites

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Collage

The Nordstrom anniversary sale is available to everyone in less than an hour so I decided to share last minute some of my favorite items that were marked down to great prices! Of course on my college budget I will not be purchasing all of these items (you’re welcome Mom 😉 ) but I figured those of you who plan to shop the sale may benefit from seeing some of my favorites that are great deals! Items sell out FAST so if you fall in love with something, snag it and check out super quick!

  1. Off the shoulder bell sleeved romper – Only $35!! Seriously the most adorable romper!
  2. Tory Burch Adeline Boot – Marked down from $498 to $299!
  3. Vince Camuto Off the Shoulder Dress
  4. Voluspa Candles – I am seriously OBSESSED with Voluspa candles, and candles in general. They sell these locally @ Valentina in Lake Forest, but 3 of them for only $29.50 is the best deal. They are usually $20 each!
  5. Tory Burch Wallet
  6. Mario Bedescu Collection – I swear by all three of these products. The drying lotion gets rid of acne WITHIN A NIGHT, and the facial spray with aloe & rosewater makes your face feel so refreshed and can also act as a setting spray (I also use it before bed.)
  7. Zella Leggings
  8. BP Booties
  9. Articles of Society ripped skinnies – Only $42!!
