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?

Lace Kimono

Kimono (more kimono options here) // Top, similar here // AGOLDE Shorts // Slide Sandals, more options here // KAANAS Bag // Ray-Ban Sunnies

If you have followed Twenties Girl Style for awhile, you know I LOVE a good kimono. It’s no surprise that this tends to be one of my go to pieces from spring to fall for how easy it is to style. A kimono can immediately change the look of a basic tee and jeans combo and can be dressed up or down depending on the accessories it’s paired with. I love the versatility and endless outfit options a kimono brings to a closet!

I was immediately drawn to this gorgeous crochet kimono. The length and sleeves give it some dramatic flair, but the crochet gives it a sweet, airy touch. I love that it can be worn as a swimsuit coverup, or paired with a dress and wedges for a date night ready look. I paired it with cutoffs and an easy tank for laidback weekend look.

Now for some exciting news! One of my very best friends, Lauren, has opened up an online boutique! It is officially open for business at 9am PST! I’ve gotten a little sneak peek of some of the items and you guys…her pieces are GORGEOUS! SO many good items to love in an affordable price range!

DENIM GUIDE

SUMMER TO FALL SHIFT DRESS

CLOTHES

Tee // Denim // Hooded Cardigan // Mules

BP Raw Edge V-Neck  Tee (NOW: $12 // AFTER SALE: $17 // SIZE: XS ): This is a piece that Nordstrom has carried for awhile and before the sale I already had a couple in my closet. I actually have 3 of these in white because of how much I wear it. I was so excited to see that it was part of the sale that I snagged it in a few colors. This color is fall perfection and I love it paired with the neutral cardi above! It does run a big big! I have a few of these tee’s in XS and Small and prefer the size down!

BP Hooded Cardigan (NOW: $46 // AFTER SALE: $69 // SIZE: XS ): This hooded cardigan is one of the biggest underrated pieces from the Nsale! It comes in two colors and is still fully stocked in both colors! This is probably my favorite cardi from the sale because I love the length and the weight of it. This is a little thicker than the other BP cardigans and will transition perfectly into fall. Hey, this is a cardigan I can see myself wearing all year long! This does run slightly large…I’m wearing an XS!

BLANKNYC The Great Jones Raw Hem Skinny (NOW: $59 // AFTER SALE: $88 // SIZE: 25): Stretchy, comfortable denim that runs true to size and can be worn in the classroom. Get the full review here.

Top // Denim // Mules

BP Ribbed Button Top (NOW: $25 // AFTER SALE: $39 // SIZE: XS): This top is actually called a ribbed cardigan online. You can definitely un-button it and wear it as a cardi, but I prefer wearing it as a top! I snagged this top in two colors (see the grey below). This one has been super popular and gone in and out of stock so many times. You can get a super similar style here!

BLANKNYC The Great Jones Raw Hem Skinny (NOW: $59 // AFTER SALE: $88 // SIZE: 25)

Top // Jacket // Denim // Heeled Mules

BP Ribbed Button Top (NOW: $25 // AFTER SALE: $39 // SIZE: XS)

Topshop Faux Leather Jacket (NOW: $59 // AFTER SALE: $88 // SIZE: ): They release a similar style to this jacket every year and it’s always one of my faves! I bought mine (the one pictured) 3 years ago and continue to wear it all fall and winter long. This years version is almost identical but with some really cute quilted details. You also can’t beat the sale price!!

Free People Ripped High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans (NOW: $52 // AFTER SALE: $78 // SIZE: 26): My all time favorite denim, I own this pair in a few washes and was so excited to see it was part of the sale this year! They do run small…make sure to size up! Get the full review here.

Dress // Cardigan // Booties // Mules (below)

Ribbed Body-Con Midi Dress (NOW: $30 // AFTER SALE: $45 // SIZE: Small ): Another underrated sale find is this midi dress. A super comfortable and flattering midi that can be dressed up or down. This is definitely something I would wear in the classroom, paired with a cardi and booties (shown above) or with mules and a denim jacket!

Dreamers by Debut Nubby Cardigan (NOW: $35 // AFTER SALE: $55 // SIZE: Small ): 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!!

Cardigan // Cami // Denim // Mules

BP Lace Trim Satin Cami (NOW: $22 // AFTER SALE:$35 // SIZE: XS ): Run, don’t walk to buy this cami! Trust me, you won’t regret it! This is such a pretty piece to wear alone or layer up with a cardi or moto jacket. This was a piece from the sale last year that was brought back this year! It comes in 4 colors, and I picked up the black and emerald green last year and snagged the white this year. I am wearing an XS!

Free People Cardigan (NOW: $99 // AFTER SALE: $148 // SIZE: XS/S ): I purchased this cardigan last fall and literally lived in it all fall, winter and spring! I was so excited to see it was part of the sale and in 3 colors, this grey, a black and wine color (which I purchased). This cardi is definitely a splurge piece but SO worth it! One of the top worn pieces in my closet from last year! It does run big…size down!

Articles of Society ‘Heather’ High Waist Distressed Skinny Jeans (NOW: $45 // AFTER SALE: $68 // SIZE: 25): My favorite pair of denim from the sale! I LOVE the fit of these and can’t get over the fact that they are under $50!Get the full review here.

Sweater // Denim // Heeled Mules

BP Textured Stitch V-Neck Pullover (NOW: $26 // AFTER SALE: $39 // SIZE: XS ): This sweater is SO good! From the fit to how comfy, cozy it is, this will be a fall staple in my wardrobe! I can see myself pairing this with a skirt or pants for work or throwing it on with my coziest joggers when hanging around the house. I’ve even worn it this summer with denim cutoffs. This sweater comes in a bunch of colors and I’m hoping to snag it in a few more once the sale goes live!

Cardigan // Cami // Denim // Booties

Topshop Cardigan (NOW: $50 // AFTER SALE: $75// SIZE: US 2 ): This cardigan is even more gorgeous in person! It’s the perfect chunky, oversized knit and the color is so pretty. As much as I love this pink, I may try and swap it out for the ivory if it restocks as I think I would get more wear out of a neutral color. However, pink has pretty much become a neutral for me soooo…

BP Lace Trim Satin Cami (NOW: $22 // AFTER SALE:$35 // SIZE: XS )

Free People Ripped High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans (NOW: $52 // AFTER SALE: $78 // SIZE: 26)

Sweater // Skirt // Mules

BP Balloon Sleeve Sweater (NOW: $32 // AFTER SALE: $49 // SIZE: XS ): This sweater is SO cute! I love the balloon sleeves and the color choices (it’s available in 3!). I went with white because it will go with everything, but the green and the pink are GORGEOUS (and fully stocked!).

Topshop Cord Mini Skirt (NOW: $40 // AFTER SALE: $60 // SIZE: ): I am so excited about this skirt! I love the color of this little moto inspired mini and how perfect it will be for fall! I can definitely see myself wearing the outfit pictured above in the classroom!

Cardigan // Tee // Denim // Booties

BP Stich Curve Hem Cardigan (NOW: $32 // AFTER SALE: $49 // SIZE: XS): The top selling item from last year is back and better than ever with an updated look! For three years in a row, this cardi has stole the show.  It’s a steal of a deal at under $35, that you might as well pick up one, two or five colors! I bought it in two colors last year and wore them SO much! The length makes them perfect for layering with dresses, tights and boots in the winter time!

BP Raw Edge V-Neck  Tee (NOW: $12 // AFTER SALE: $17 // SIZE: XS)

Articles of Society ‘Heather’ High Waist Distressed Skinny Jeans (NOW: $45 // AFTER SALE: $68 // SIZE: 25)

Sweater // Denim // Booties

BP Varsity Striped Sweater (NOW: $26 // AFTER SALE: $39 // SIZE: Large): This varsity striped pullover comes in two colors and the other color option is currently on it’s way to me. I actually ordered a large in this because I wanted it super oversized so I could wear it off the shoulder and pair it with leggings!

Free People Ripped High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans (NOW: $52 // AFTER SALE: $78 // SIZE: 26)

Cardigan // Tee // Denim // Booties

BP Oversized Waffle Stitch Cardigan (NOW: // AFTER SALE: // SIZE: ): This cardigan was one of the first things to sell out and it’s no wonder why. It’s a cozy, chunky oversized cardigan that is a good dupe for pricier options.

STS Blue ‘Emma’ High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans (NOW: $39 // AFTER SALE: $59)

Tank // Leggings // Sneakers

Adidas Originals Trefoil Tank (NOW: $24 // AFTER SALE: $32 // SIZE: XS): I own this tank in a few colors already and it’s one of my faves for working out or just wearing around! I love the oversized armholes for wearing with a sports bra and the fabric is super soft with just the right amount of stretch!

Zella Street Style High Waist Leggings (NOW: $50 // AFTER SALE: $75 // SIZE: XS): These are the coolest leggings I’ve ever owned! I think these will be perfect not just for the gym, but also on a fall weekend! This color is the grey bird, but definitely looks like a pretty light shade of lavender in some light! Debating getting the black for a more edgier legging to pair with sweaters and booties! These do run a bit big…I’m wearing an XS!

Sweater // Denim // Booties

Topshop Colorblock Knit Pullover (NOW: $ // AFTER SALE: $ // SIZE: ): 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!

Free People Ripped High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans (NOW: $52 // AFTER SALE: $78 // SIZE: 26)

Top // Denim // Mules

Caslon Striped Bell Sleeve Tee (NOW: $26 // AFTER SALE: $39 // SIZE: XS): If you follow me on instagram, you may have heard me rave about this tee multiple times.

I love the stripes and the bell sleeves and how easily this one can go from work to play! It comes in 3 colors and runs big…I’m wearing an XS!

AG Ripped Ankle Skinny Jeans (NOW: $150 // AFTER SALE: $225 // SIZE: 25): I bought my first pair of AG jeans last year during the anniversary sale. AG jeans are pretty pricey, so getting them on sale is a bonus! At first I was hesitant to splurge on denim, but after reading plenty of rave reviews I took the plunge and am SO happy I did. Obviously happy enough to be buying my second pair this year! These are a high quality pair of denim and I love the skinny fit! There is just the right amount of distressing and I love the raw hem!

BP Raw Edge V-Neck Tee (NOW: $12 // AFTER SALE: $17 // SIZE: XS)

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings (NOW: $65 // AFTER SALE: $98 // SIZE: XS): Everyone RAVES about these leggings and it’s no wonder why…these babies are MAGIC! I purchased these last fall and can’t tell you how often I wore them in the fall and winter. They are so easy to dress up or down. I love the leather look of these because while they look like leather, they don’t look like some of the cheesier faux leather leggings that almost look plastic. I have them in an XS and find them to run true to size…however, they are difficult to get on!

Thread & Supply Wubby Fleece Pullover (NOW: $52 // AFTER SALE: $78 // SIZE: Medium): You might remember this fuzzy pullover from last winter because I practically LIVED in it! It’s the coziest thing ever and perfect for chilly fall and winter days and is also a great travel companion for helping you beat chilly flights (or you can use it as a pillow!). I have this in two colors and actually sized up to a medium. This is oversized already, but I love the fit of the medium. It’s so cozy and long enough to cover my bum when I’m wearing leggings!

Scarf // Cardigan // Tee // Leggings // Booties

Shiraleah Scarf (NOW: $22 // AFTER SALE: $33 ) : This cozy scarf is a perfect dupe for one of my all time favorites that is a bit pricier. It comes in 3 colors and is SO warm. This is a must have if you experience frigid winters!

SHOES

Steve Madden Trace Studded Mules (NOW: $50 // AFTER SALE: $80 ): I LOVE these mules! I know I’ve mentioned it multiple times, but mules are my go to shoe for the classroom. They are super comfortable and easy to wear and I love that I can take them from the classroom to date night or a weekend outing. I am going to try and snag these in another color during public access (currently eyeing the mustard or snakeskin!).

Kristin Cavallari Charlie Studded Loafer Mule (NOW: $85 // AFTER SALE: $130 ): 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!!

Halogen Violet Genuine Calf Hair Mule (NOW: $65 // AFTER SALE: $100): I missed out on leopard mules last year and it was one of my biggest sale regrets. I can’t tell you how many times I got dressed and thought, “This would be so cute with leopard mules!”. This year, these were the very first thing that made it into my cart. They add a fun pop to any outfit and these are so comfortable!  These run true to size! I ordered my regular size 7 for a perfect fit!

Adidas Flashback Sneakers (NOW: $68 // AFTER SALE: $90): These sneakers are so cute and comfortable and SUCH A STEAL! I love the nude…they will go with everything, but they also come in black and you can’t go wrong with a black sneaker! Adidas often run big, but these run true to size. I wear a 7 and ordered a 7 and the fit is perfect!

Adidas Edge Lux Clima Running Shoe (NOW: $64 // AFTER SALE: $85): These are the perfect sneakers for the gym or running around town. They are so comfortable…I feel like I could wear them all day! They also didn’t require any breaking in which is always a bonus! Another sneaker I found to fit true to size. I ordered my regular size 7 and they fit perfectly! These also come in the CUTEST shade of pink!

BP Tonya Open Toe Mules (NOW: $50 // AFTER SALE: $80 ): These heeled mules were such a good find, especially for the $50 sale price! They come in four colors, are comfortable and the block heel makes them easy to walk in. I love the v at the front too! It elongates the leg and is super flattering on! If you get a chance, you should snag these!!

Steve Madden ‘Petra’ Open Side Booties (NOW: $80 // AFTER SALE: $120 ): I got a similar pair of booties last year and literally wore them out. I think I like this year’s pair even more! These come in 3 colors and are on sale for a steal at $80! These come in 3 colors, but I love the taupe because it will go with everything (see above…I paired them with almost every outfit!). I love the pointy toe and the unique open side design.

BP Brice Notched Booties (NOW: $80 // AFTER SALE: $120 ): So I actually ordered these booties in two colors (the cognac, pictured above, and grey). I ended up returning the grey and keeping the cognac because it’s such a perfect fall color. I am not sure if I will be keeping this pair either. I love the fit and despite the reviews, found them to run true to size, but I am not a fan of the ankle flap! It’s a bit flimsy and folds in occasionally which bothers me. I’m not sure if this is something that will work it’s way out or not, but this has me re-thinking my purchase. However, despite this flaw, this bootie is just about perfect for fall and if you love them, I would give them a try. This may be a non-issue for you!

On another note, have you been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?! I have placed a few orders and am still waiting on the rest of my packages to arrive so I can share a review of my purchases. In the meantime, check out some of my sale favorites , top selling must have items  and my sale denim guide!

One of my favorite sale purchases thus far has to be this little shift dress. I got it late Friday and even though I was already dressed for date night, I had to change JUST so I could wear this sweet little number. At under $35 this is a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe as it will transition perfectly into the colder months. I can definitely see this being one of my go to work dresses because it is so easy to layer! I wore it for date night with a denim jacket tied around my waist and my new favorite platform sandals (not part of the sale, but reasonably priced and super comfortable!). I love that it can be dressed up or down, and would pair it with these open toe mules and maybe a leather jacket for a night out! This dress is also PERFECT for the classroom! Just layer it up with a cardi and booties (as pictured below – all items from Nsale!), and in the winter, I could easily see myself pairing this with leggings and riding boots!

This dress is available in 2 color choices and is currently only $32. Snag this versatile piece now!
