Fall Denim with Express

Happy Tuesday, Babes! I hope you all had the best weekend. We kept things super chill and hung out as a family all weekend and it was just what I needed. Last week was a crazy work week for both Darek and I so it was so nice to just slow down and hang out on the couch and watch movies. Sometimes no plans are the best plans, am I right??

Ok- so on to this adorable look! With Fall coming up so soon, I really wanted to share this outfit with y’all because I am SO in love with these jeans! If you guys are anything like me, it’s sooo hard to find jeans that fit well and are comfortable and flattering. Not to mention, jeans that you can actually bend over in and not have too much showing. We took a trip as a family to the mall last week and I was browsing in Express and found these jeans. I couldn’t believe how comfy and slimming they were when I tried them on. They are also high-waisted which I love! I basically LIVE in jeans during the cooler months and this pair is a “legging-denim” so they have the *perfect* amount of stretch (I’m wearing a size 2 for reference). I paired them with this basic tee and this cozy grey cardigan.  I’ve been shopping at Express since high school and it will always be one of my favorite stores!  They are actually having an amazing SALE right now if you buy one pair of jeans you get the second pair for $29.90, so it’s the perfect time to stock up on your Fall denim!

If you end up going in-store to try on be sure to use my DISCOUNT CODE 5735 to receive $30 off your purchase of $75 or more! XO

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 – Early Access


It’s here!  The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has finally arrived!  This sale is by far my favorite sale of the year!  Early Access begins today, July 13th and runs through the 20th.  The sale then opens to the public starting July 21st- Aug 6th, so if you don’t have a card be sure to check out the sale when it goes public, the deals are so awesome this year!   The sale can be a little overwhelming if you’ve never shopped it before.  I honestly prefer to shop the sale mainly online (the crowds can be a bit much) but I did go in yesterday to shop and I’m so excited to share what I tried on and bought so far from the sale.  I’m also sharing a little Fitting Room Diary featuring some of my favorite outfits from the sale I tried on yesterday.  Sorry about the picture overload but I wanted you guys to be able to see how everything looked on.  I’m planning on doing a dedicated post about what I pick up for the girls as well as an entire beauty post sharing my favorite beauty items from the sale.  Please let me know if there is anything else you regarding the sale y’all would like to see from me. I’ll be sharing everything I love from the sale on here and on Instagram in the coming weeks so be sure to follow along! Trust me when I say things sell out SO fast in this sale so if there’s something you love, don’t wait to buy it! Happy Shopping!! XO

This V-neck tee is only $15 and has the best fit!  I bought it in grey & black as well!  Also, these jeans, you guys!!  If you are looking for an affordable pair of Fall denim ($38) this is it!  SO flattering!

This sweater is SUCH a pretty color.  This $24 pullover is probably one of my favorite items I bought!

This cardigan is so perfect!!

This sweater ($38) is hands down one of my favorite items, I bought it in cream but it also comes in this gorgeous burgandy!  It looks so similar to a Free People one I own but at a fraction of the price!

How cute is this plaid?!  It’s so soft and perfect to tie around your waist with a basic tee.

This long cozy cardigan is literally the comfiest softest thing I’ve ever touched lol

Guys, how freaking cute is this peplum jacket?!

I can already tell you I’ll be wearing this striped long sleeve ($18.90) so much! I bought it in several colors.

Ribbed Cardigan (love the texture on this!) This hat is the one item that isn’t a part of the Sale but I’m still obsessed with it!

Button Down Henley / Jeans / Booties / Hat (not part of the Sale but SO cute)

This Lush Ruffle Dress is so cute and totally wearable right now during warmer months.


Back to Basics

One thing I’ve learned in life is that you can never go wrong with a good pair of jeans, a white tee, and some cute shoes. Lets be honest, I basically wear some form of this outfit a few times a week. It’s my go-to look and I have to say, I just love the simplicity of a white tee. It’s timeless and it doesn’t hurt that this one is only $24 — it also comes in several other colors, I may or may not have them all!

Be sure to check back tomorrow to see all of my favorite picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I just got home from previewing/shopping the NSale and believe me, the deals this year are AMAZING, you guys!  SO. MUCH. CUTENESS. Early Access starts tomorrow for Nordstrom Card holders! I can’t wait to share all of my favorite items from the sale as well as what I picked up with y’all! XO
