Coffee Talk + What I’ve Worn Lately

Greetings, friends! Happy Palm Sunday!

I can’t believe Easter is a week away; it definitely doesn’t feel like it weather-wise, but we’ve had a few pretty days and I’m hoping the snow will at least be melted by next weekend.

We’ll be visiting my parents in Virginia, which I’m looking forward to. I’ll also get to visit with my brother’s family and my childhood bestie, who I haven’t seen in far too long.

I don’t usually do product-focused posts on Sundays, but it’s been an age since I’ve done a What I Wore post or an IG Roundup (they’re sort of one and the same) so I thought I’d do that today.

What I Wore March 2018

Don’t forget that today is the last day of Nordstrom Triple Points, the Bloomingdale’s Denim Days and Loyallist savings event, the Macy’s VIP Sale, and Lord & Taylor has 35% off their dresses today too. Plus Loft has 30% off tops and sweaters as well as an additional 40% off sale styles. WHEW!!!

I have a Nordstrom Favorites page and a Bloomies Denim Days post if you want some shopping recommendations, and my Loft Favorites page should be up to date as well.

I don’t want this post to be too terribly long, so I’m going to focus on the looks I’ve worn that are still mostly available and have some of the above promotions attached to them.

This striped sweater is marked way down, and there are some good black jeans on sale at both Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom.

I’ve gotten a lot of use out of this blush and ivory striped boatneck sweater this season, and by the looks of the weather forecast, I’ll have plenty more opportunities to wear it before summer arrives. It would also be cute with jean shorts on a cool summer night. It’s on sale and then 40% off that price, which brings it down to just $23.99.

This is my favorite date night outfit so far this season. This suede moto jacket is part of the Nordstrom Triple Points, and the jeans are available at Bloomingdale’s so you can get 15% off (or 25% if you buy 2 or more pairs.)

moto // jeans (budget option) // similar cami // similar shoes // clutch

This is a fun transition outfit — love the updated utility jacket for spring.

Here’s another way I’ve worn this jacket — over a grey tee with white jeans and taupe ankle boots.

I wore this to the mall one Saturday a few weeks back. (Yes, I wore a coat over top.)

sweater (40% off with code STYLE) // my all-time favorite jeans (20% off) also here (40% off with code JEANIUS) // the world’s most comfy flats (Triple Points eligible) // similar tote

I wore this out to dinner one night when we were in Nashville. It’s a slightly dressed-down version of the outfit above. These shoes are one of my favorites for spring and summer, and they’re on sale at Nordstrom Rack.

I wore this one day touring Nashville. I absolutely love this coat; it’s chic but functional, perfect for spring weather… if it ever gets to us here in Philly!) Also the sweater is marked way down, the jeans are part of Triple Points, and the booties are also reduced.

I love this dusty rose sweater from Ann Taylor; I’ve been wearing it a ton recently because it’s warm enough for our winterish weather but it looks like spring.

sweater // similar jeans (budget option / option) // similar loafers // bag // necklace

This is yet another Loft sweater I’ve been enjoying this spring. This one does have 3/4 length sleeves, though, so keep that in mind. It also runs small. I wonder if I should have gone with a medium.

Similar to an outfit above, but these shoes are really cute and fun for spring, if you’re into loafers.

Everything I’m wearing here besides my jeans are sold out, but I wore this to go out with friends a few weeks ago, and I just want to share it because I like it. Ha!

I love this sporty tee for spring casual outfits, and it’s part of the Nordstrom Triple Points event.

Another day, another Loft sweater and jeans… I wore this to church last week. I love the combination of black, red, and leopard.

sweater // jeans (option / high rise option) // slides (also at Nordstrom Rack) // bag // earrings

I thought this was pretty creative… ha! It was cold and snowy, but I wanted to wear something spring-like to the salon to get my hair cut and for errands afterwards, so I paired this ivory wool sweater with pink skinnies, and I wore my grey UGG boots since they’re weather proof and oh-so warm.

sweater (option) // jeans (Bloomies Denim Days) also at L&T (sale eligible) // boots // bag

And you’ve seen this top a lot already this year, but it’s also part of the Nordstrom Triple Points, and it comes in so many great colors. I wish the Azalea was available in my size; I’d snap it right up.

There are a lot of days that I’m still wearing winter sweaters; it’s just too cold not to. Since we had such a warm fall, I’m trying to enjoy having a few more weeks to wear my winter wardrobe favorites, but I’m definitely itching for warmer weather so I can wear my new spring clothes all the time!

I know it’s coming. Just gotta be patient!

Also, I haven’t talked about it a lot this time around, but registration for Adore Your Wardrobe closes Tuesday, and the next session starts Wednesday. If you haven’t taken it, and you’ve been wanting to, don’t put it off any longer. You won’t regret it; trust me.

If you’re on the fence, Kelly is hosting a big Facebook Live event tonight (Sunday, March 25th) to answer all your burning questions. Sign up for her emails so you get notified when it goes live.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  1. Great recap! If only I were a sweater wearing kind of girl. I love so many of the ones you share with us. Happy Palm Sunday!

  2. Good morning!
    I picked up the whip stitch striped sweater while at Loft yesterday. Great sale price! 

  3. I think there’s a recurring theme with the sweaters – baby it’s cold outside…..for March!  Ugh, when are we EVER go to have it feel like spring??  Last weekend we wanted to get out of the snow in the Pocono’s, so we headed to Lancaster County, but one day later, you all got hammered with another Nor’easter.  Mother Nature hasn’t any favorites!  After you styled your black cardigan last week, I realized I don’t have any such cardigan in my wardrobe, only a 3/4 sleeve fine gauge one. How did I miss out on that basic piece?  Of course, I had to remedy that situation!   So once again, thank you for your never ending supply of fashion ideas!!  

  4. Love how you style moto jacket! I have a charcoal ponte one that I love but can’t figure what to wear under. Plus how to stop looking like a biker in it! Ugh!

  5. I love when you recap some of the outfits you’ve styled and I’m reminded of items that I liked and should reconsider. Your so good at pointing out what’s still available and on sale. I think you should order the sanctuary tie sleeve top in a medium and sell me the small lol. JK! But since you do like it so much it may be worth trying the azalea in a medium. I think it will be a better fit on you 😊

  6. What is your opinion on floral pants. I ordered a pair from chicos & tags still on. Can’t decide if I want to keep. I usually do solid pants

    1. I’m not a big fan of them on me; they don’t suit my personal style aesthetic, but they can be really nice looking on other women. I think it depends on your personal style and how much you love them.

  7. I only have spring on my mind so buying sweaters are not even on my radar. I bought a cute pink top with a small flare sleeve yesterday. Pink has never been a color I favour but I wanted to pick up the flower in my new embroidered jeans. I’m step out of my comfort zone with both pieces. This momma is trending. Lol

  8. I just picked up the orange/pink/navy striped sweater in store at Old Navy yesterday for $11.99. I wouldn’t have even looked at it without your recommendation! Thank you! 🙂
