Would you believe me if I told you this outfit was 50 UPF (ultraviolet protection factor)? Meaning I can wear this outfit out to the beach and look absolutely chic while protecting my skin from those harmful UV rays. It’s the truth! Despite how adorable this outfit is, it’s made with special ultraviolet protection that helps protect from the sun. Mott 50 is a fairly new company that offers “fashion-forward sun protective clothing in soft, lightweight fabrics.” After wearing this dress for the past few weeks (yes, it has been on major repeat), I have become a huge Mott 50 fan! Not only is this dress comfortable, but it also has a flattering fit and can easily be transitioned into the fall with boots! I love knowing that I can wear this out in the heat of the day and my skin is also being protected from those harsh summertime rays! I’m not saying this is a good alternative to sunscreening, but rather an extra layer of protection!
One of my absolute favorite things about this dress, is it is so on trend with the stripe pattern! I am loving all striped dresses lately, from t-shirt to maxi dresses! Shop some adorable striped options here.
Anybody remember that feeling of finding your first day of school outfit? Back to school shopping was always my favorite time of year, and I got practically giddy as I laid out what I would be wearing that very first day back, even if it was a few weeks…or a month in advance. Being a teacher, I still get to have a “first day of school” outfit and I’m not going to lie, I LOVE it. When I tried on this Antique Garden shift dress, I had that same feeling I used to get when I was younger…this is the one! It may be a month and a half in advance, but I will definitely be wearing this sweet printed shift when the first bell of the year rings in September!
Please tell me I’m not the only one who picks/picked out first day of school outfits so far in advance!
By now I’m sure most of you have lurked the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I’ve spent a good chunk of time perusing the website, adding pieces to my bag and dreaming up my fall wardrobe. This is the best time of year to add new fall accessories to your wardrobe as you can’t beat the prices! I love picking out staple pieces I know I can mix and match throughout the season. Neutral pieces that will go with everything! These pieces are all marked down currently, but the only way to shop them now is with a Nordstrom card. The sale officially goes live on the 17th, so head over and start making your own wish list now, or sign up for a card here if you just can’t wait!
Today’s outfit features the pieces I feel like I’ve been living in lately.
These AG ‘Ex-Boyfriend’ slim jeans are by far the most comfortable jeans I have ever owned! I love that they have that ‘boyfriend’ fit, but are not too loose. They are the perfect pair to transition me into a real pair of baggy boyfriend jeans! Paired with a slouchy tank, a loose jacket and my converse, this outfit has been on repeat for the past few weeks!
You also may notice me wearing this ring and bracelet A LOT.
I’ve been running these on repeat too!
They come from Honeybee Boutique, and I really can’t get over the quality for the price! They both are very well made and simply stunning (hence the multiple photos…oops!)
