Printed Pants

Haaay friends, who’s excited about a three day weekend?! We’re so so close!

So, I recently stumbled upon these pants online while browsing a sale J.Crew was having and I was smitten. I walked into the store the next day to try them on, just to try them on. I was secretly hoping I wouldn’t love them as much on, but of course as soon as they were on my legs I refused to take them off. Justifying the purchase with the 30% sale that was currently going on I walked out of the store with them in hand [read: in bag] and that was the end of that. But they really were a great purchase. They’re so comfy, machine washable and such a fun print, I’ve worn them so many times already I couldn’t imagine not having bought them.

These pants are especially great for chilly days in the office when the AC is cranked and I’m shivering at my desk. But they’re also light and airy enough that they’re totally bearable in the serious heat outside too. But they’re comfy enough to lounge around in at home too. Super transitional, which is a must for my wardrobe. Here I styled them with a light chambray shirt and embellished sandals, perfect for inside of a chilly office. What do ya think?!

On My Radar

Hello lovelies!

I’m exhausted! This weekend my Dad came to visit me in North Carolina! I love when family and friends visit because I can show them my favorite places to eat and my favorite things to do. And we had a jam-packed weekend, to say the least. We went on a hike, perused the local Farmer’s Market, went to a baseball game and had the best meals ever (still thinking about the heavenly ahi tuna I had Friday night). Anyway here’s what’s been on my radar this week…

Monday Mules

I’ve been wanting a pair of Mules for a while now. My favorite thing about them is that they can be so effortlessly styled from day to night. They’re the perfect sandal for work-still conservative but peep toe so you can show off your latest pedicure. (New graduates: take note, you need these in your new work wardrobe.) But they’re funky (LOL) enough to pair with distressed jeans and a casual tee for a cool weekend look. I’ve been holding out because I haven’t found a pair I love, until I stumbled upon these J.Crew Factory ones. They’re originally $138, but on sale for $69 right now. With a deal like that, I couldn’t say no. Plus I’ve never been disappointed by a pair of shoes from J.Crew Factory.

Here I paired the shoes with a simple navy Madewell A-line dress and a cheetah print clutch. This is an outfit that can totally go from a day at the office to drinks after work. Just throw the clutch in your tote stocked with lipstick and face powder and you’re ready to go. I wear this dress to work all the time because it’s super easy to throw on and go, and with a touch of lipstick and a statement bag, it works for the wine bar after work as well!

Weekend Wedges

So I’ve been on the hunt for the past few months for the perfect espadrille wedge. I’m not sure what my recent obsession with shoes are but there are just so many fun options this season, I can’t help myself.

Obviously these Chloe wedges have been everywhere, and they’re beautiful…but I’m not about to spend $700 on a pair of shoes. So I’ve been on the lookout for a similar style with a not-so-similar price. Marc Fisher has made a few shoes with a very similar style, so I went with these. They’re SO comfortable, so I won’t be taking them off. I plan to wear them with cuffed jeans and fun tops, springy dresses and shorts all summer long.

Happy Fri-Yay!

This week seemed so long compared to last and I’m so glad it’s finally Friday. I decided to try out Pure Barre for a month so I’ve been going everyday after work this week and I am loving it! I’ve been taking classes with a co-worker and it’s always nice to have a friend beside you especially to exchange glances with when we have absolutely no idea what’s going on. Anyway here’s what’s been on my radar this week.

Pink Palm Leaves

Happy Wednesday pretties!

In search of a dress for a recent wedding I stumbled upon this TopShop palm leaf number. I didn’t end up wearing it for the wedding but I couldn’t stand to return it because I think it’ll be the perfect dress for summer. And I love it even more on! The palm print is my favorite part of this dress, it’s such a fun pattern for summer and I’ve been looking for a palm piece for a while now. This frock can be dressed up with heels and jewelry, or dressed down with sandals and a jean jacket and I’ll totally be taking advantage of its transitional style all summer long.

The Bachelorette Ep. 3 & 4

Happy Monday & Tuesday Bachelor Nation!

As always **spoiler alert**

This week we got a double dose of The Bachelorette, 4 full hours! And what a crazy four hours it has been! I finished filling out my Bachelorette bracket for the competition at my office on Monday, and I was pretty confident in it, until tonight’s rose ceremony and two-on-one date. (Gosh Chad, couldn’t you have hid the crazy for a few more episodes?!) I have Jordan winning it all – but who knows? My top 4 include Jordan, Robby, Luke and Chase. Anyway… back to the drama.

A four day week?! What could be better?

I used Monday to catch up on errands and the earlier part of my week organizing my to-do lists, so I’ve started the week pretty productively. On Wednesday I did a Pure Barre class with a few co-workers and I seriously forgot how hard it is! It’s such an amazing workout, I’m thinking of signing up for a month unlimited. **insert monkey with hands over eyes emoji** Stay tuned, I might die. Actual quote from a co-worker after the class, “I would rather birth another child, than do that class again.” Haha! Anyway, here’s what’s been on my radar this week.

Wedding Wear

If you’ve been following my most recent posts, you’ve read about my dilemma in finding a dress to wear to a wedding I attended a few weekends ago. I didn’t technically need to buy a new dress, but it was an excuse to shop, so of course I took advantage of it. I found this dress online at Nordstrom, and it was a steal at less than $50. Unfortunately it’s not available online anymore, but I’ve linked a similar dress below.

I paired this floral dress with white Kendra Scott earrings and sand suede Steve Madden strappy heels, and I love how the outfit turned out. The dress can be re-worn to summer dinners and parties and the shoes to work or casually with jeans and a tee.
