August Favorites

It’s that time again! Every month I round up some of my new finds and old favorites that I’m particularly loving right now.

one // two // three // four // five // six // seven // eight // nine // ten

August Favorites 2019

one // Yikes, pardon the wrinkles! Anyway, this twist front top is a fun one, and the color is gorgeous. I have my usual small, and it’s currently on sale for $14.99.

This top also looks great paired with white jeans or shorts, as well as light wash denim.

also wearing: Gap mid-rise 5″ denim shorts (I cuffed mine for a shorter style)

two // I finally started carrying this Rebecca Minkoff crossbody from the #NSale, and I love it.

It’s such nice quality and the perfect size for carrying the essentials. I also love the large slip pocket on the back, perfect for holding my iPhone XS Max.

also wearing: Daily Ritual sleeveless v-neck jersey dress with Vince Camuto denim jacket and  Victoria Emerson Alicante cuff

three // This striped hoodie is such a great piece for transition season — I’ll be able to wear it well into fall with jeans, but I wear it now with shorts on cool evenings or rainy days. I have my usual size small, and it’s currently on sale for $32.99.

also wearing: Joe’s jean shorts (on sale at Nordstrom and Zappo’s; more sizes at L+T and Bloomies) with Veja Esplar sneakers

four (also at Nordstrom) // I’ve been way over-wearing these shorts lately. They just suit my mood right now — enjoying all the last lazy days of summer. The ones I linked are similar (same brand) because mine sold out.

also wearing: J.Crew raw edge v-neck tank and Tory Burch Miller sandals in light makeup

five // I’ve just started using this resurfacing peel, and I’m loving it. My skin looks refreshed and feels smoother the next morning, and it’s super easy to use.

It contains glycolic, lactic, malic and hyaluronic acids as well as essential fatty acids, and it doesn’t have any synthetic fragrances or formaldehyde-based preservatives found in other peels.

I’m trying to incorporate more clean beauty products into my routine, and if you are too, this product is a great place to start.

six // This mixed metal cuff is one of my favorite fashion bracelets, and I’m so glad they still stock it! It comes in either gold or silver, with just a touch of the other metal in the center, which is perfect for tying together other gold and silver metals in your outfits.

As an aside, this tie front tank is on sale for $24.99, and there are quite a few sizes and colors left. (Size up! I like it best in the large.)

CND Naked Naivete

seven // This CND Naked Naivete is my current favorite summer nail color. It’s the perfect light neutral — a combination of white, peach, and pink. So pretty! (I’m wearing in pictures #8 and #9 below.)

eight // I’m loving this floral mock neck top from White House Black Market.

I wore it with black jeans and heels to go out to dinner one night last week, but it’s also cute with blue jeans, and it could also be worn with pants and a cardigan or fitted jacket for a work wear look.

nine // This sleeveless v-neck jersey dress is just $20 at Amazon, and it’s really soft and comfortable and fits well. I like how it’s not too low under the arms — an issue I have with a lot of sleeveless styles.

I recommend sizing up (wearing the medium) and be prepared for a body-con fit.

also wearing: Sam Edelman Bay slides, Rebecca Minkoff Jody crossbody, and Victoria Emerson Alicante cuff

ten // This one didn’t make the collage, but I decided to add my Anna Beck pendant at the last minute because I’ve been wearing it so much. It goes really well with the mixed metal cuff (#6), plus it’s reversible so you can wear it on the plain silver side if you want.

Sorry I don’t have a clearer picture of it, but it’s really nice quality, and I wanted something I can wear for a long time.

also wearing: floral blouse (now $29.50) and AG legging ankle jeans

  1. I’m certainly not ready for fall…it’s too hot still and I feel like I’ve barely had a summer…I’m the gal recovering from a broken hip. I am back at work a few hours a day…going to Physical Therapy 2 days a week and started driving last Thursday. Woo Hoo!  So while there’s plenty of warm weather left I’m sure, I’m just not ready for fall.

    Great post today. Love the crossbody bag…very cute. 

      1. Thanks JoLynne – I appreciate the kind response. I am trusting God each day for more stamina & strength. The hip is getting stronger, so I am indeed grateful!!

  2. Love your site and just started reading your blogs! I recently ordered some things from Nordstrom based on your site. With shape shorts, do you recommend both black and nude color? Also do you just wear shape shorts under dress or do you also have thigh length for other styles? With body slip you recommend, do you do both black and nude color? I’m trying to decide if I should buy both colors as I bought nude shape shorts from your link. I’m a mom of 3 with our youngest being 4 and these are awesome!!!

    1. I’m so glad you like them! I only have nude shape shorts and the nude slip, and I never feel I need black. I have been looking for a longer pair of shorts I like as much, but so far I’m not coming up with much. I need to order a few more pairs to try.

  3. I am new to your site and love it! With shape shorts, do you recommend both black and nude color? Also do you just wear shape shorts under dresses or do you also have thigh length support shorts? With body slip you recommend, do you do both black and nude color? I’m trying to decide if I should buy both colors as I bought nude shape shorts from your link. I’m a mom of 3 with our youngest being 4 and these are awesome!!!

  4. That is a very pretty mixed metal bracelet.  Oh how I wish I could carry a smaller handbag, but that’s just not in my DNA.  I know that you enjoy the summer months, but I wonder if you would still like it so much if you had the triple digit temps and dangerous triple digit heat index we are experiencing.  It’s so bad that when you walk out a door, you get slammed in the face with the heat.  Have a great rest of your day.

    1. I prefer a larger bag as well… although I’m getting better about using one this size! I still like my totes and carryalls tho.

      I love summertime, but that kind of heat sound stifling. It rarely gets that hot here.

  5. Hi Jolynne, I love your posts! BTW, you and Cyndi both talk about Beautycounter. I would love to try them out, but don’t know how to find a consultant. I called one in my area, but she never called me back😬any suggestions?
