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!

 

JULY 2018 Top Ten

Happy August 1st! Before I share today’s top ten I have to share that today is my husband and I’s 3 year anniversary! I am so excited for a mid-week date night to celebrate 3 years of marriage with my best friend. Check out our engagement story and winter engagement session and our whimsy UP engagement shoot and then our wedding posts which are in 3 installments … getting ready // first look and bridal party //ceremony. Thanks for taking a walk down memory lane with us!

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!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public today!! If you’ve been shopping the sale like I have, you know this year there are so many amazing deals! I am hoping to pick up a few more goodies today as they restock the sale for the public! 


Today I am sharing some of the pieces I picked up during early access. I am still waiting on a few packages to arrive, but hope to update this with pictures when I get them (hopefully a few arrive later today)! Scroll all the way to the bottom for shoe reviews!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – Must Haves

Early Access Picks

 Tank // Jeans // Booties // Watch 

Side Slit Tank (Now: $19 // After Sale: ): I shared this tank on instagram and it was an instant fave. Nobody can turn down a basic tank! It’s made of the dreamiest fabric that is SO SOFT! I love the length of this one because I can knot it up or wear it with leggings! I’m wearing a size small. 


SP Black Ripped High Waisted Skinny Jeans (Now: $39 // After Sale: $59): These are an Nsale STEAL! I’m wearing these jeans with just about every look below because they might be my new favorite pair of distressed denim. I was shocked at the under $40 price tag when I put them on. The fit is similar to one of my all time favorite pairs of jeans that are closer to $100. I ordered a size smaller than I usually do (wearing a size 24), because of the high waisted fit, and they fit like a glove. I also love the raw hem! 


Skagen Mesh Strap Watch (Now: $110 // After Sale: $165): My husband got me this watch for Christmas and I love it! It has a gorgeous rose gold face and a pretty silver mesh band. The mesh band is fairly dainty, but I love that it has a bigger face. Buy this as a gift to yourself…I promise you won’t regret it 🙂

 Tank // Jeans // Mules // Faux Leather Jacket 


Side Slit Tank (Now: $19 // After Sale: )


SP Black Ripped High Waisted Skinny Jeans (Now: $39 // After Sale: $59)


BlankNYC Moto Jacket (Now: $65 // After Sale: $98 ): I bought this jacket last year and wore it so much over the fall and winter!  It was perfect for layering and I loved styling it with dresses in the early fall last year! This years is identical except where mine has silver hardware, this one has gold which I LOVE! The fit of this jacket is perfection! I ordered a size small so I could layer with sweaters in the winter! If you don’t plan on layering, size down! 

Top // Jeans // Mules // Watch 

Thermal Top (Now: $25 // After Sale: $38): A soft slouchy top you will want to wear on repeat. This comfy cozy piece comes in a few colors and I wouldn’t mind owning them all! It has a flattering fit and is so soft! This does run large and I might have preferred an XS but went for a small for that oversized fit! 


SP Black Ripped High Waisted Skinny Jeans (Now: $39 // After Sale: $59)


Skagen Mesh Strap Watch (Now: $110 // After Sale: $165)



 Sweater // Jeans // Mules // Bag

SP Black Ripped High Waisted Skinny Jeans (Now: $39 // After Sale: $59)


Tory Burch ‘Frida’ Leather Satchel (Now: $330 // After Sale: $498): I’ve had the smaller version of this bag for a few years now and it is still one of my go to’s! It comes in 3 colors, but let me tell you that the french grey is even more gorgeous in person! This bag is made of the most high quality pebbled leather and is sure to be your go to handbag for years to come. 

 Cami // Jeans // Mules 

Lace Trim Satin Cami (Now: // After Sale: ): 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. It comes in 3 colors, and I only got the black and the gorgeous emerald green, but you better believe I’m getting the white as soon as it’s restocked! I’m wearing an XS!

 Cami // Cardigan // Jeans // Mules 

Lace Trim Satin Cami (Now: // After Sale: )


Topshop Stripe Colorblock Cardi (Now: // After Sale: ): Chances are you’ve seen this cardi around. It was actually the first thing I ordered on a whim at 1am in the morning when the sale opened early access and it’s basically been sold out ever since. I’m hoping they restock this cozy cardi because it really is as good as you think it is. So soft and perfectly oversized, this will be my go to in the winter time! It runs VERY oversized! I’m wearing a US 2. 


SP Black Ripped High Waisted Skinny Jeans (Now: $39 // After Sale: $59)

Sweater // Jeans // Mules 

Free People Electric City Pullover Sweater (Now: $65 // After Sale: $98): You know those pieces of clothing that you have in your wardrobe that you always fall back on?! The ones you always put on when you have nothing to wear and you feel like a million bucks? Enter this sweater! I can already foresee that this is going to get a lot of wear in the upcoming months! This cozy sweater could be a little more oversized…I’m wearing an XS and almost wish I would have gone with a small for a more oversized fit.

BlankNYC Suede Moto Jacket (Now: // After Sale: ): One of my most worn pieces from the sale last year, I couldn’t recommend this jacket enough! The quality is amazing and it’s thick enough that I could easily pair it with a sweater in the winter and stay warm enough for date night! The colors available this year are GORGEOUS…the grey is on my wishlist if it comes back in stock! I ordered a small for layering purposes! 


 Dress // Boots 

Free People ‘Perfectly Victorian’ Mini Dress (Now: $110 // After Sale: $168 ) I own this dress in not one, not two, but three colors now. But do you blame me?? The moment I saw this gorgeous fall color combo I had to get it! I wear these dresses year round, pairing them with tights, boots and sweaters in the fall and winter. They are gorgeous, airy little pieces that are perfect for the summer too! This dress is available in 3 stunning colors. I’m wearing an XS. 

 Dress // Booties 

BP Slipdress (Now: $32 // After Sale: $49): The moment I got this dress (literally), I ripped off the tags and wore it out the door for date night! This is the perfect transition dress…I even did a whole post sharing how I would transition it from summer to fall which you can check out here! I love that it has adjustable straps and the color is just perfect for fall! It also comes in a gorgeous floral print! I’m wearing a size XS. 

 Tee // Jeans // Mules 

Lush V-Neck Tee (Now: $16 // After Sale: $24): I purchased this tee in multiple colors, and is definitely a must have from the sale! A few people mentioned it running large, but I like a slightly oversized tee so I can tuck it or knot it. Size up if you want that slouchy fit! I’m wearing a small. 


AG Jeans (Now: $150 // After Sale: $225 ): I’ve wanted these jeans for awhile and finally decided to make the splurge and I am so glad I did!! These jeans are definitely worth it…no wonder everybody raves about them! They fit like a glove, are super comfortable, and as much as I love distressed denim, the non-distressing allows me to wear these to work! I ordered a size 25. 

 Tee // Jeans // Boots // Cardigan // Scarf // Bag

Lush V-Neck Tee (Now: $16 // After Sale: $24)


AG Jeans (Now: $150 // After Sale: $225 )


BP Cardigan (Now: $32 // After Sale: $49): For two 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! 


Scarf (Now: $16 // After Sale: $25): The color combo on this scarf is even prettier in person! It’s lightweight too, so it’s perfect for early fall when it’s chilly, but just not cold enough to pull out your coat! 


Tory Burch ‘Frida’ Leather Satchel (Now: $330 // After Sale: $498)

 Sweater // Scarf // Jeans // Booties 


Tunic Sweater (Now: $30 // After Sale: $45 ): I’m not sure how this sweater is still almost fully stocked in all sizes. If only you could feel how incredibly soft it is! This is another sweater that is perfect for work and the weekend. Who doesn’t love a versatile piece?? I’m wearing a size small and love the oversized fit. 


Buffalo Check Scarf (Now: $16 // After Sale: $25): A cozy plaid scarf is one of my fall essentials and this one is one of my favorites! I love that it’s not so oversized it looks ridiculous on and you can actually move your neck while wearing it! It doesn’t hurt that it’s also SUPER soft! It comes in a black and white combo too! 


AG Jeans (Now: $150 // After Sale: $225 )

 Sweater // Jeans // Mules // Bag 

Tunic Sweater (Now: $30 // After Sale: $45 )


BlankNYC Ripped Skinny Jeans (Now: $59 // After Sale: $88 ): This brand makes some of my favorite denim and this pair does not disappoint! The quality of these jeans is amazing! I love the darker wash and the fit is perfect for my 5’3 frame. If you are a little taller, these will be a perfect cropped fit for wearing with booties! I’m wearing a size 25. 


Tory Burch ‘Frida’ Leather Satchel (Now: $330 // After Sale: $498)

 Top // Leggings // Boots 

BP Pocket Tee (Now: $19 // After Sale: $29): I stock up on these long sleeve tee’s every year because they are the PERFECT long sleeve tee and you can’t beat the price! They come in multiple colors and are an easy piece to layer when the temps drop! They aren’t super thick, so they also work well now on a chillier summer evening with a pair of shorts! They do run super oversized, I’m wearing an XS! 


Zella Live In High Waisted Leggings (Now: $36 // After Sale: $54): I get a pair of these every year and they definitely live up to their name! I live in these leggings all year round, wearing them to work, lounge around the house and workout! The higher waist makes them super comfortable and the quality rivals my Lululemon’s! They do run a bit big, so size down – I’m wearing an XS.

They have the perfect heel height and I love that they are just below the knee! I will wear these to work and on the weekend! They fit true to size…I purchased a size 7! 

 Kristin Cavallari ‘Capri’ Mule (Now: $80 // After Sale: $120 ) 

I’ve had these mules in the caramel suede since December and wear them SO frequently that when I saw they were a part of the sale I had to snatch them up in another color! These are my go to shoes when I don’t know what to wear! These cuties are so comfortable that I can last a whole day at work on my feet with out any discomfort! They come in 3 colors and I might need the black too! I ordered a size 7, my regular size.  This super similar pair is also a part of the sale and I’ve heard rave reviews on them! They are $20 cheaper! 

 Vince Camuto ‘Karinta’ Block Heel Booties (Now: $100 // After Sale: $150 )

These opened toed booties are not only comfortable, but have gorgeous detailing too! I know I will be wearing these all fall long, but have already worn them to dinner with a dress! They come in 3 colors and as much as I wanted to taupe, I bought the grey instead (I already have 5 pairs of taupe booties!) and I am so glad I did! This color is gorgeous! I got my regular size, a size 7! 

Hinge Block Heel Booties (Now: $80 // After Sale: $120): A comfy classic pair of booties that will go with everything! Wear these with a dress or your favorite denim now and into the fall! I love the unique cutout and perforated detailing on the back! They come in multiple colors, but a taupe pair of shoes goes with everything! I purchased my regular size, size 7.
