Good morning! I hope the weekend is treating you well. I put together an Instagram Roundup for today and it’s a doozie, so grab a 2nd cup of coffee and sit for a while!
I’ve been wearing more of my older clothes lately so I won’t have links for everything I’m sharing today. I decided that I’ve gotten too caught up in trying to always wear something I can link to, and that gets tiring plus it’s just not realistic. I realize no one expects me to wear new clothes all the time, so I hope you won’t mind that I can’t link to everything.
This first outfit is case in point. This split neck top sold out soon after I bought it, but I wear it a lot. I like that I can throw it on with jeans or shorts and it’s the perfect length without futzing with a front-tuck. At first I put on my sand patent Miller sandals out of habit, but then I switched to these pink Gigi flats because I wanted the pop of color. I love grey and pink together.
Madewell split neck tee (old) // AG legging ankle jeans (similar for less) // pink Gigi sandals (on sale!) // beaded hoops // LV Neverfull MM – other options here (save) or here (spend) or here (splurge)
This was on the way to the beach when we were at Ocean City, NJ a few weeks ago.
I wore this to the boardwalk one night when we were at the beach. I wanted something simple but cute and put together. This is a great little tank — soft but thick enough to not be see through, flattering but modest straps and neckline, and the perfect length. (It is TTS or you can size down if in between.)
I’ve worn this dress a few times since I got it. It’s so easy to throw on and go. For size reference, I have the small so it’s TTS or maybe runs a tad big. Size down if in doubt.
Some of you ask about necklaces. In this case, I wore two — one to fill in the open neckline and the other to break up the front of the dress. Both are shiny gold and they work well together.
This was one night at the shore. I wore this out to dinner, but I was cold and wished I’d brought jeans. For size reference, I have a medium in this top.
Yet another night at the beach… and another dinner out. (I don’t like to cook on vacation. It’s not that I mind cooking so much, but I prefer to do it in my own kitchen.)
Our last morning at the beach, I asked my husband to take a quick picture. This is pretty much what I wore every morning before going down to the beach and every night after we got back from dinner. So comfy. On chillier mornings, I threw my thermal cardigan on top.
I wear a variation on this outfit for all of my strength training workouts. This tee is old (from Kohl’s) but it’s a favorite, and these are my all-time favorite running/workout shorts. I have them in 3 colors. When it gets colder, I wear these and throw a sweatshirt on over my tank top to go to and from the gym.
I’m loving my new pajamas. I picked up a couple pairs when the Gap was having 40% off a few weeks ago. This is my favorite spot to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee — on my front porch in one of our wicker chairs.
SALE ALERT >> Up to 50% off at GAP storewide, plus take an extra 20% off + FREE SHIPPING with code BESTDEAL.
I can’t wait for the weather to get cool enough to wear this outfit. I styled these spruce green jeans 4 ways for a blog post last week, and this was my favorite.
I wore this outfit to church a couple weeks ago. The blue top is from White House Black Market, but I got it last summer.
I wore this next outfit to go to dinner with some girlfriends one night last week. I used the opportunity to pull out one of my off-the-shoulder tops because I rarely have the occasion to wear them. I also pulled out my all-time favorite wedge sandals.
Normally I’d wear white jeans with this, but it was a Monday night and I didn’t want to look too over-the-top and I wasn’t sure how everyone else was dressing. SO! I wore blue jeans to tone it all down some, but then I added the fringe clutch and tassel earrings to keep it fun. LOL! #overthinker
SALE ALERT >> BOGO 50% off Lucky Brand apparel. Excludes accessories and shoes.
I ordered this cute tie front sweatshirt from Gap on sale last week. It will make a nice transition top this fall. For size reference, this is the small. If you’re in between sizes, you can probably size down in this.
I paired it with straight crop jeans because I was going for a pedicure and they’re easy to roll up, plus the two pieces work well together. I also like the contrast of the moss green bag with the ivory top. I wore a long, rather casual charm pendant necklace from American Eagle and Alex and Ani bangles. I wish I could find a similar necklace to link to. I like this one a lot with casual outfits.
I wore this for a mall run and other assorted errands. I love how this top pairs with white jeans, and I also like it with blue jeans for a more casual look.
My husband and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary last weekend, and this is what I wore to go out to dinner on Saturday night. I paired this cute printed top from White House Black Market (another top from last year, sorry!) with dark blue jeans, and then I wore white pumps to dress it up.
I was going to wear my white blazer, but I felt too businessy so I switched to my white denim jacket instead. I added a layered necklace with some turquoise in it (also old) and big gold hoops. Then a couple gold bangles and a metallic clutch finished off the outfit.
SALE ALERT >> Get up to a $750 bMoney gift card at Bloomingdale’s when you shop select styles. Ends 8/13.
I wore this outfit to church last Sunday. Our church is very casual, especially in the summertime. Anything goes, really, and I can dress up when I want to, but I still wasn’t feeling well so I decided to go for comfort.
This grey tee was a splurge last summer and I plan to have it in my closet for many years. It’s got a great fit to it and it’s a beautiful fabric. I always love grey and pink together, and these pink jeans are super stretchy and comfortable, so they seemed like a good idea. I added my embellished gladiators and a coordinating grey crossbody. Silver jewelry completes the look.
Monday was cold and rainy, and I had to drive my daughter to and from camp so I threw on comfy jeans, rain boots, and my rust tie front top for some color on a drap day. My raincoat is several years old, and this charm pendant has sold out. My Hunter boots are 40% off, by the way! They run very big so definitely size down. I wore a sweater over this when I was at home. What on earth happened to summer!?!
I’m bummed that this yellow clutch sold out again so fast. That seems to be the way it goes these days.
Okay, we’re in the home stretch. Who’s still with me!?! LOL! This is what I get for not doing an IG roundup in several weeks.
This linen sheath is still available in several sizes, and it’s a great price for the quality. It also comes in black. It runs true to size for Eliza J – I always wear an 8 in her dresses, and sometimes I can wear a 6 in other brands.
You may notice, I didn’t match my handbag to my shoes, but they’re both light neutrals that work into the colors of the outfit.
There is nothing new or innovative about this basic outfit, but I had just washed and styled my hair and put on makeup so I felt the need to document it. LOL! Evidently I’ve got a thing for navy and denim lately!
Take me back to the beach!!! When we were in Ocean City last month, we took pictures one morning for a Maui Jim collab and this is one of my favorite shots.
And another simple summer outfit for my casual stay-at-home mom life… these sandals are marked down to $29! They are leather, have a padded footbed, and the straps are super soft and comfy. No breaking in needed. I like this color sandal for wearing into fall, as we all know it won’t be cold for some time yet.
SALE ALERT >> 40% off EVERYTHING at LOFT with code OHYES
Finally, I wore this outfit yesterday for a meeting and a lunch date with my husband and then to host friends for dinner last night. This top will transition nicely to fall. It also looks great with white jeans.
And that’s a wrap! I hope you all have some fun plans for today. We’re going out with friends tonight, but otherwise I’m just going to be puttering around the house and getting ahead on work. I have a stack of boxes sitting in my office of things that I need to return so that will keep me busy!
