Instagram Round Up – What I’ve Been Wearing this Summer

Happy Monday friends! 

I can’t believe that we are already well into August! I feel like this summer has FLOWN by! I also feel like I’ve dedicated a ton of time to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this summer! While I love all of the fall goodies, I am still enjoying every minute of summer! Today I thought I would round up some of my favorite (none #nsale) instagram photos from this summer so you can see what I’ve been wearing! 

 Dress // Rebecca Minkoff Bag // Booties 

This dress is perfect for work! It’s coming to the blog later this week as I share TWO ways to style it…for summer and fall! 

 Top (comes in 2 colors) // Levi’s Shorts  

I wore this outfit to dinner on Friday night and shared this story on IG. For some reason this top reminded my husband of The Macarena and when I asked him to take this photo he decided to play the song and dance along meaning getting this shot took x9374 times because all of them were blurry from his dancing….boys!! It’s a fun summer top that screams summer and the best part? It’s just $15! 

Dress // Denim Jacket // Similar Cognac Cross Body Bags // Similar Slide Sandals 

I got the chance to head over to Nordstrom at Southcenter and check out the new style bar and style board services!  The style bar stylists were SO sweet and helped me pick out this outfit that was perfect for date night! I never would have tried this distressed denim jacket if the stylists hadn’t pulled it for me and I am so glad she did! I am obsessed! 

 Dress // Sandals – $25 Dupes // Rebecca Minkoff Bag // Karen Walker Sunnies 

I’ve been all about gingham this summer and this sweet dress has been perfect for the beach and running errands! It has the sweetest bow ties and is made of lightweight fabric that is perfect for hot summer days! It also comes in the cutest two piece set

 Dress // Bag // Sandals – $25 Dupes // Blush & Bar Necklace 

Be prepared to see this dress one too many times! I fell in love with the fun ruffle sleeves the moment I saw this dress! I’ve been wearing it as a coverup, dressing it up for date night and plan on pairing it with OTK boots come fall! Full post of this cutie coming soon! It’s currently unavailable in the taupe (I have a feeling it will be restocked soon), but check out the gorgeous teal! 

Top // Rebecca Minkoff Bag // One Teaspoon Shorts 

I picked up this top this spring and have been wearing it a ton! It’s now on super sale and is such a pretty piece to add to your wardrobe! You can wear this one into fall! 

Top // Levi’s Shorts // Rebecca Minkoff Bag // Michael Kors Watch 

This off the shoulder top has everything that I love…stripes, ruffles and tassels. The best part? It’s currently on sale for only $20!! Snag this cutie now!

 Swimsuit Top // Bottoms // Grapefruit Clutch // Quay Sunnies // Sandals 

It wouldn’t be summer without a fun printed swimsuit! This one is one of my favorites! This print comes in a bunch of different pieces, but I opted for the high waisted bottoms and plunge bikini top. 

 Top // Rebecca Minkoff Bag // Levi’s Shorts 

When I saw this bright orange top, I knew it was a summer must have! It’s light weight and airy and the crochet detailing is gorgeous! It comes in 4 different colors! 

 Braided Sandals // Studded Slide Sandals // Cactus Espadrilles // Sandals – $25 Dupes

My summer shoe rotation! I’ve been loving detailed sandals and my cactus espadrilles! 

 Top // White Shorts Options Here // Cactus Espadrilles // 

This sweet denim peplum top is now on major sale (under $30). Wear this top now and layer it up in the fall! 

Top // Bag // White Shorts Options Here // Sandals

Off the shoulder striped top, white shorts and sandals. This has been my uniform lately! 

Top // Similar Denim // Sandals – $25 Dupes // Hat // Karen Walker Sunnies 

This top is one of my favorite new pieces! I’m wearing it now with denim and shorts, but know it will be perfect for work once school starts back up later this month! 

Instagram Roundup + My Christmas Wish List

Happy Monday! 

It’s my last week of work before winter break! I’ve got some fun things planned for my first graders, including a Gingerbread hunt! We’ve been reading Gingerbread Man/Girl/etc. stories all December, and two stuffed cookies have been hiding in our classroom (think Elf on the Shelf). I love seeing their faces light up as they enter the room and try to spot where the cookies have moved to. There is definitely magic in the air! I’m planning a little gingerbread hunt of our own on Thursday or Friday…it should be fun! Wish me luck…despite all of the holiday cheer, those kiddos can get a little crazy this time of year! 

Today I am sharing my Christmas wish list and an instagram round up of some of my most recent posts! Shop my wish list by just clicking the items in the collage! 

Instagram Round Up


 Sweater // scarf // similar mittens // pom hat 

Cozy knits are my jam. They make the cold weather just a bit more bearable. This scarf is a MUST have! You may have noticed it’s on my wish list above in a different color. This is a scarf I wouldn’t own in every color! 

 Dress // Heels // Necklace // Clutch

I recently re-posted this look from this summer because hello, how perfect would this dress be for the holidays?! Pair it with my favorite heeled sandals (now on sale) and a fun clutch (wouldn’t something like this be fun for the holidays?), and you are holiday party ready! 

 Sweater // Jeans // Boots // Bag // Pom Beanie 

I won’t lie…I’ve had this outfit on repeat since Thanksgiving! This bell sleeve turtleneck sweater is so cozy and on trend. Gift it to your trendy bestie or sister, then do yourself a favor and buy these grey skinnies! Hands down my favorite pants at the moment. Under $100 and fit like a dream. Do size up though, because they run small. 

 This beanie is the CUTEST and so cozy! It’s on sale for just $25 and would make the perfect gift! I am pretty obsessed with the grey and may be adding it to my wishlist! 

 Dress // Similar bags here and here // boots // beanie 

A holiday dress that can be dressed up or down is a must have during this season. This sweet knit version comes in two colors and is perfect for layering (as seen here)! 

 Sweater // Bag // Jeans

A cozy sweater that you can live in. The best part? It’s just $40! 

 Sweater // Similar Jeans // Hunter Boots // Similar scarf here and here // Pom hat 

This is what I wore on our hunt to find the perfect Christmas tree. This cardigan sweater is hands down my favorite. I have had it since June, and wear it SO often. It’s perfect for holiday travel. I’ve taken this on a few flights and some long car rides and it never fails. Perfect for a chilly plane ride as you can snuggle up in it, or take it off and turn it into a pillow. Either way, it’s one of my travel favorites!
