Happy Monday, Friends!
It’s already August and t-minus 3 weeks until the fall semester starts. I actually can’t wait to go back, but know once I do that means less time on the blog, and less time cleaning. Ah! For those of you who don’t know, I am an interior design major and decided to go back to school last year after taking a long break after HS. Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to my textiles class this year!
Since I am such a romper (and now jumper) enthusiast, I am sharing yet another similar look! This strapless black jumpsuit is seriously the perfect work to night look, and since it’s one piece, easy to style. Just throw on a blazer for work (and maybe even flats depending on your preference and work environment).
I shared a striped off the shoulder jumper a few posts back that was more of a casual and laid-back style. This one has a lot more structure, and the black color makes it work appropriate and a bit dressier. The tailored leg also gives it a more put-together and business look. I love that it has a skinny leg but is not at all tight.
Also, it has pockets. Enough said.
I love a statement necklace with a strapless top or dress because it really frames it and makes it stand out. If you want something a bit more subtle, though, you could always swap the statement for a pretty pendant necklace.
The exact jumper (also available in blue) is linked below as well as my pink/nude pumps. I also linked some similar bags and jewelry as well as other blazer options.
The weekend is finally here again. Why are they so far apart?! I have been sharing these legging looks throughout the week via my insta (follow me here if you aren’t already!). And as promised, I’m rounding them all up here and in one place. You can also find them all over on my shop page as well.
I know it’s still summer, but with school and fall right around the corner, these looks are great transition outfits for when the nights (and days) start to get a little cooler. With the warmer weather, they are perfect with sandals. But once the temps drop, you can easily swap the flops for boots.
I’m sharing this off the shoulder sweater first because, well, it’s my favorite. It’s from Nordstrom and now on sale. It’s convertible and can be worn off the shoulder or as a cowl neck. They also have this sweater in 8 other colors! Seriously?!
It is a great length to wear with leggings since it is a bit longer. Super soft + super comfy.
This muted purple sweater is def a close second. As I mentioned in my insta, I’m not a big fan of purple, but I just loved this shade! It is also available in grey. Normally I like to wear longer tops with leggings, but I just love the laid back slouchy look of this sweater with some cozy leggings.
This could definitely be worn with jeans and some cute peep toe booties as well.
Lastly, is this waffle tunic from Aerie. I share a lot of their clothing because they have some of the softest pieces out there and for a reasonable price. Aerie is an off-shoot of AEO but focuses more on lounge wear. (They will be your best friend in the winter!)
This shirt is also available in a few other colors and a nice length for leggings. This is great for just throwing on and running out the door. It would also go perf with jean shorts!
Let me know which look is your fave in the comments below.
Happy weekend, Friends!
Channeling my inner Olivia Pope. Who else is hooked?! I’m on the final season on Netflix and seriously, how can any of this possibly have a good ending?! I’m in it until the end, though!
I have been wanting a “power suit” and made it half way there. I found these muted pink pants at Express (yes, they are pink) and couldn’t pass them up. Not to mention they were also half off which was a nice bonus! I decided to put together this chic suit pants outfit for you guys. It’s perfect for an office job, internship, or upcoming job interview.
Since they are such a light pink, they are basically a neutral which makes it easy to find a matching top. (For some reason the link below says sold out but if you click thru they are still available). I went super basic and just paired it with this sheer white blouse–can’t go wrong with this combo. It’s super simple + chic. For any business outfit, I don’t suggest any top that is too tight–you will look unprofessional. Find something that has a tailored fit or is a little loose.
These nude pumps are from Francesca’s and actually have a bit of a pink hue to them. They are great to have on hand and a good staple to invest in–especially since they go with so much.
I have gotten compliments on this purse. It’s basically a Kate Spade impostor (shh, it’s from H & M). I have shared it a few times before with an off the shoulder top and a cozy winter look. I love the color because once again, it is so versatile. The structure also has a way of completely pulling together a look. I linked a few similar ones down below.
If you are dressing for a job interview or an office job, I would suggest a bag with more structure. Throwing on a satchel or flimsy purse will look sloppy and unprofessional.
