AUGUST 2018 Top Ten

Happy September!

I have been SO MIA lately! I’ve had a difficult time transitioning back into the classroom after summer vacation. I LOVE my kiddos this year, but have definitely struggled with balancing my job and blogging. I had been feeling very overwhelmed and down on myself for not having time for the blog, but when I took I step back, I realized how important it is to give myself grace. Transitioning back into working two jobs has been more difficult than usual this year, but I think I’ve finally come to the realization that it’s OKAY for me to take a step back and take a little time off to refocus. I am feeling refreshed and more than ready to return to my passion project, Twenties Girl Style! Please be patient with me as I continue to transition back into my schedule. I hope to start bringing you fresh content later this month!

In the meantime, I have been posting to Instagram daily! Check out the top sellers for August!

1o. Knot Back Sweater 

This twist back sweater is so flattering! It’s a great way to show off a little skin in the colder months without showing too much! I think my favorite part about this sweater is the stripes! I love the color combo too!!

9. Pearl Cuff Joggers

These joggers are everything! From their gorgeous shade of pink to the sweet pearl cuff detailing. I love the feminine touch that the pearls add! I also love the price tag…these cozy bottoms are only $32 and fully stocked!

8. Pocket Henley 

This henley is so good! I’ve had a huge crush on all things yellow lately, so the moment I saw this top, I knew I needed it! I love tops like this for the classroom! They are so easy to wear and style to work, but can be transitioned to date night or the weekend! Snag it now on sale for just $30!

7. Hooded Cardigan 

Another longer length cardi, I love this oatmeal colored option not just for it’s length, but also for the hood! This comfy piece can be worn to work or for lounging around the house! Check out some cute loungewear options to pair it with here.

6. Colorblock Sweater 

I love love LOVE this sweater! The color combo is absolute perfection. I can’t even imagine a more fun or perfect mix of colors! The one thing to note about this sweater is that it’s on the shorter size. I’m wearing a US 4 and it fits perfectly, but if I re-ordered, I might have sized up for a more oversized fit! If your loving colorblocked sweaters as much as I am, check out some more options here.

5. Adidas Flashback Sneakers 

Comfy, neutral sneakers that you can wear to the gym or on the weekend! The best part about these? They are under $100! As a teacher, I also love wearing sneakers in the classroom on Fridays. These are PERFECT because 1. they are super comfortable and 2. they go with everything!

4. Ribbed Sweater 

Who doesn’t love a cozy sweater to live in during the fall? I snagged this one the moment I saw it. I’ve had a huge obsession with ribbed sweaters lately!

3, Long Knit Duster Cardigan 

It looks like many of you are anticipating fall sweater weather just as much as I am because this sweater was so popular in August! I love it so much, I snagged it in two colors! It is currently sold out, but you can check out some more long cardigan options here. I love the longer length for colder weather!

2. Boucle Balloon Sleeve Sweater

This sweater is only $20 and a dupe of a much pricier option. I love that you can get the look for less without breaking the bank! I ordered this one in a small and now want it in all four colors! It’s the perfect piece for chilly fall days!

 

1. Fleece Joggers 

These joggers are the BEST…it’s no wonder they were so popular in August! The come in pink and grey and are the perfect cozy pair to take into fall with you!

 

Summer to Fall Mules

Mules are BY FAR my favorite type of shoe to wear! I think they are so easy and effortless and love that I can take them from work to the weekend! I especially love transitioning mules from summer to fall. There is no easier shoe to slip on and go all while looking chic and put together. Teachers, if you don’t own a pair of mules this needs to change! I find my mules some of the most comfortable that I own for the classroom! Today I am rounding up some of my current favorites, from neutrals to options topped off with a bow!

Are you a fan of mules?

Sweet Stripes Summer Mini

Dress // Steven Slide Sandals // KAANAS Bag // Ray-Ban Sunnies // Taudrey ‘Simply Pretty’ Choker Necklace // Made by Mary ‘Zola’ Necklace, more gold necklace options here

One thing I have not been able to get enough of this summer is stripes! I have been stripe obsessed lately especially when it comes to bright options…the more colors the better! So of course the moment I saw this little number I knew it was meant to be. The prettiest color combo paired with the off the shoulder and bow tie makes this the sweetest little summer mini. I was excited to see that this pattern comes in a few different styles, from shorts to a midi dress, and the best part about them? They are ALL on sale!

I know summer may be coming to an end, but now is the perfect time to snag those pieces you’ve been eyeing. One, you can often find great deals on summer clothes and two, it’s a great time to stock up on warm weather items if you plan on taking a little vacay sometime this fall or winter!

This month’s top ten involves lots of summer stripes and some Nordstrom Anniversary Sale finds!

10. Knot Front Cutout Dress

This dress has become one of my go-to’s this summer! It’s so easy to wear, comfortable and the knot detail adds a fun touch! Nothing like a t-shirt dress for easy, effortless summer style!

9. Ribbed Body Con Midi Dress

This dress is so flattering and one of my favorite Nordstrom Anniversary Sale finds! This cutie can be dressed up or down for work or date night! The best part? It’s just $30! See how I styled it here.

8. Articles of Society Cutoff Denim Shorts

I love a good pair of distressed denim cutoffs and was excited to discover these. They do run a bit small…I ended up ordering 1 size up, and even read reviews of others ordering 2 sizes up, so know this before shopping! But for $50, you can’t beat these! A great light-wash and just the right amount of distressing makes these your new fave summer shorts!

7. Raw Edge V-Neck Tee

Hands down my favorite t-shirt! I was so excited to see that it was part of the sale. I actually owned this in a few colors before the sale and ended up picking it up in 3 more colors during the nsale. For one, it’s on sale for $12 and 2, it’s the PERFECT tee! I love how this one washes, the slightly oversized fit and how easy it layers!

6. Nubby Cardigan

This cardigan is such a steal! I will be wearing this cozy piece all fall and winter long! If you’ve been thinking about splurging on a Barefoot Dreams cardigan, this is a great dupe and alternative!! This one has been going in and out of stock and I’m hoping for a full re-stock after the sale. This is a sweater that’s worth full price!

5. Colorblock Knit Pullover

I love love LOVE this sweater! The color combo is absolute perfection. I can’t even imagine a more fun or perfect mix of colors! The one thing to note about this sweater is that it’s on the shorter size. I’m wearing a US 4 and it fits perfectly, but if I re-ordered, I might have sized up for a more oversized fit!

4. Studded Loafer Mule

One of my favorite pairs of mules is on sale and comes in 3 gorgeous colors! I got these this spring and love the unique detail of the studs! They also come in black leather and a gorgeous burgundy suede that is perfect for fall! These are the COMFIEST mules I own!!

3. Striped Top

This top was a top seller right around the end of June, beginning of July and it’s no wonder why! It was the perfect top for the 4th of July! This fun summer top fits like a body suit, but without the actual annoying body suit aspect because let’s be real…body suits are SO unrealistic…especially when you have to go to the bathroom!

2. Relaxed Tank

This is a great layering basic. It’s so soft and comfortable too! Pair it with a cardigan or jacket and easily dress it up or down! It’s currently available in 4 colors and just $20! Size up to be able to knot the front!

10. Castaway Striped Sweater

This sweet summertime sweater was top seller for the month of July by FAR. But it’s no wonder why…pastel stripes? Yes please! The great thing about this cutie is it is perfectly oversized, meaning you can wear it over leggings, as a dress, or tuck it in with denim shorts!
