BLACK OUT

There are certain outfits that make me feel like me. Jeans, sneakers and a tee is one of them. A fun romper. A sexy girly dress. And ripped jeans and a moto jacket. Whenever I wear ripped jeans with a jacket I just feel relaxed yet pulled together and JUST COOL. Whether I really am cool or not, I can feel like it.

I have been an admirer of Daniel Wellington watches for quite some time now. When starting my blog I wanted to work with brands with whom I admire and I was thrilled to partner with Daniel Wellington on this post. I already have the Classic Sheffield watch and when I saw the new line of black faced watches I knew it was the one I had to own. It is seriously so chic and sleek. I chose the Classic Black Cornwall 40mm because I love the large face.

I chose the one with the fabric band because I wanted something different than leather and metal. It is so comfortable and easy to wear and lightweight. I chose the rose gold and it is NOT too girly. My husband is eyeing it up and asking me to share with him. I truly believe all of their watches to be unisex.

There are many Fall trends that I love but I think velvet is high on my list of favorites. It is lush and adds texture to an outfit. I could have worn a basic tee shirt with this outfit and it still would have looked so good. But the touch of luxurious velvet took this outfit from basic to glam. Just by trading out the tee for a cami. Target does it again.

My ride or die jeans make an appearance yet again because I love them. HAVE YOU BOUGHT THESE YET??? Do it; you will not be disappointed.

SILK BLAZER

Happy Monday! I used to wear blazers all the time when I was just starting to work in the corporate industry. Then I got really sick of them and then I thought they looked way too corporate. But while browsing I saw this navy blue faux silk pajama style one and I envisioned styling it way down for during the day and errands, and that was exactly what I did when it arrived. And I love this simple and polished little ensemble.

Flats and I are typically not friends. They cut up my feet and rub them weird and cause unsightly things I won’t go into further details on, but I am so far loving these Halogen lace up metallic flats I got at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. My trick is to either size up or to loosen the ties a lot. Like a lot. And that is what I decided to do and it really works. The metallic shine looks so good with this blazer and there really is not too much shine going on.

The blazer itself is a faux silk but is is far from shiny. The navy is a deep saturated true navy blue and the white pajama style piping gives it a fun and whimsy look which turns a blazer from corporate to casual. I can even see myself wearing it with ripped boyfriends and sneakers too. I love it and it is comfortable and easy!

My favorite tees that I have mentioned before are the Madewell tissue tees. The hold their shape well after constant washing and they are thin and wispy but are not see through. My favorite kind of tee! I just noticed they have a new crewneck version available so I am clearly getting it.

WARDROBE WISHLIST

It’s the WEEKEND! I used to do a weekly post where I rounded up some items from some of my favorite stores and then I stopped doing it but I am going to start it up again! Once a week I am going to choose things I have bought myself, want to buy myself or wish I could buy myself! They may all be from one store if there is a killer sale or could be from a variety of stores. This week I am rounding up some basics- jeans, tees, moto jackets and sneakers that I WANT NOW! Here we go!

Jacket//Jeans//Sneakers//Bag//Scarf//Tee//Sunglasses

1. Everyone needs a moto jacket and this one is under $100 and is now available in 4 colors. I have the hunter in size XS and it is gorgeous.

2. Tees with interest are my favorite kinds. I was on the fence with the destroyed top trend but I like the subtle rips in this tee.

3. I love althleisure. But I like when you can tell the difference between my gym shoes and my casual sneakers. These fit the bill.

4. My Topshop bomber is being price matched and it is available in 3 different colors!

5. The velvet trend is everywhere right now. These boots look perfect for everyday wear and are a walkable heel height.

6. I am obsessing over this over the knee boot!!!!

7. I have this top and it is so comfy and perfect for day to day.

8. I think I can dress these down with a long sweater or tunic and booties.

9. I also love these sneakers!!!!

10. I bought these in the ankle version and they were just slightly short. Exchanging for the regular!

Happy weekend shopping!
