Upcoming Outfits!

Hi Everyone!

I wrote a blog post about a week ago that outlines how I plan my outfits months in advance.  You can read the post HERE if you missed it.  So, today, I am sharing snippets of three outfits that I will be wearing in the next few weeks.  This summer, I have been living in gorgeous flowy dresses with bold prints.  I had been staring at the following dress on the Nordstrom website for weeks before I decided to order it and try it out.  All I can say is WOW.  I am SOOOO glad that I decided to try this beautiful dress.  The print is incredibly striking and bold.  The fit is TTS.  I am wearing my normal size 16.

This dress is seriously breathtaking.  I cannot recommend this beauty enough.

It speaks volumes that I am wearing this dress without a sweater in this image.  That says how fantastic the dress is, seriously.  I am not a fan of showing my arms (we all have a few hang-ups, right?), but this dress is SOOOO fabulous.  The fit is incredible.  I also styled the dress with a lilac color J. Crew Cotton Jackie Cardigan Sweater.  I will share those images soon.

And, here are two more upcoming outfits.  I absolutely LOVE the first skirt.  It’s one of my faves:

Finally, I am SO looking forward to wearing this jumpsuit soon.  I LOVEEEE the bold print/flower.  And, the fit is fantastic.  I sized down from a size 16 to a 14.  This print is amazing!!!

OOTD: Pretty in Pink!

Hi Everyone!

Here is the outfit that I wore to church earlier today.  I absolutely LOVEEEE this combo.  It’s SO stunning and flattering on any body type.  I was initially concerned that the top would be too revealing and that it would expose the stomach area, but it is not.  The skirt sits high on the waist, which conceals the tummy area if you wear the top off the shoulder like it is meant to be worn.  I took my normal size 16 in this set and I HIGHLY recommend this beauty.  I cannot wait to wear this look again super soon.

Again, I LOVED wearing this look SO much.  This is hands down one of my favorite outfits.  I have styled this beautiful pattern another way, so I will share that look soon! Neutral accessories such as a tan purse would also look great with this pattern!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Hi Everyone!

There are several gorgeous J. Crew and Madewell pieces included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Early access to the sale started yesterday for Nordstrom cardholders.  I know that it is difficult to think about fall clothing when it is incredibly warm outside, but there are some really good deals and pieces included in this sale.  Here are my picks (affiliate links below):

Are you shopping the Nordstrom sale?  I LOVE how this gold blazer and sweater pop against the camo print, so I plan to grab both of these of items!  The gold paired with camo print is such an expected color combination, but I absolutely love it!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Friday Faves!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday!  Today, I am sharing my Friday Faves!  I am loving bold floral patterns SO much these days!  I love the idea of wearing a bright, bold, and fun floral pattern with bold color shoes or earrings.  So, several of my faves today include bold floral patterns that can be worn casually or dressed up for work/church/weddings.

Upcoming Outfits!

Hi Everyone!

Happy Wednesday!  I plan my outfits months in advance so that I know what I am wearing and so that I am not rushing.  I love the idea of going into my closet and having a variety of combinations from which to choose on any given day.  It really makes things go smoothly because figuring out what to wear is not an issue.  So, today, I thought that I would share a bit about how I plan ahead.  I think about the weather, of course, particularly the temperature.  Moreover, I plan outfits in clusters which means that I think about prints and patterns that I want to wear.  I also think about comfortable shoes that pair well with multiple looks.  Comfort is key for me, so I am constantly thinking about shoes that are ideal for lots of walking. Finally, I think about the occasion.  I do not buy into the idea of being overdressed or feeling out of place, but I do think about our plans for the upcoming weeks when I am considering my outfits.  Specifically, I consider locations and how far we have to walk to get into a building or things such as the temperature in the room.

Here are a few of the looks that I will be wearing soon.  I love the first look, but I will have to wear it on a cooler day!

And, here are snippets of two more looks that I will wear in the upcoming weeks.  I love flowy dresses and skirts, so I will be wearing plenty of both pieces!  Stripes are always a good idea!:

The first outfit in this post features older J. Crew pieces, but there are several similar pieces on the website now.  See below for a few options (affiliate links):

And, here are the details for the other two looks featured in this post, as well as images of other items in my outfit rotation!:

Also, these purses are my FAVES!  I am constantly reaching for these beauties.  They are incredibly versatile and super cute.  And, I can see what I am carrying without having to do a lot of digging!:

I would love to know how you plan your outfits!  Do you plan what you’re wearing daily, weekly, or monthly?  Please leave me a comment and let me know!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!
