Instagram Recap + Sunday Sales
Happy Sunday! Started the day off by visiting a friend up in Huntersville then heading to Birkdale Village to shoot some fresh looks for the blog. I can’t wait to share them with you! Prepare yourself for all the cozy sweaters and my favorite over-the-knee boots will most certainly be making a few appearances. It’s been a while since I’ve done an Instagram round-up, so wanted to take the opportunity to recap some of my favorite looks from the last few weeks and share all the outfit details. At the bottom of this post you’ll also find links to some of my favorites sales happening right now.
Ellos is an amazing new clothing company that I’m partnering with to celebrate National Lagom Day. ‘Lagom’ is a Swedish word meaning ‘just the right amount’ and it’s the foundation of the Ellos’ brand in balancing cozy sweaters, like this one, with leather jackets or a statement accessory. Now you can live the Lagom lifestyle with a special giveaway where you and a friend can win a three night stay for two in Sweden. Simply follow @ellosusa on Instagram and share your #LOVEellos look telling us how you practice balance in your life via Instagram or Twitter with #LOVEellos, #LagomContest & #NationalLagomDay, or upload directly to the customer photo gallery via the Ellos website.
If there is one velvet item you need in your wardrobe this season, it’s this tee! First of all, it’s on sale right now for less than $25, plus it’s super versatile. I’m shown wearing size XL. I shared all the details about this look and other ways to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe in a recent post ‘3 Ways to Wear Velvet.’
This was one of my favorite looks from last Fall. Soft, drapey trench coats are an easy piece to throw on as you walk out the door to give you not only warmth, but it will polish off your entire look. I prefer to tie mine behind my back, giving the jacket more shape and accentuating my waist, instead truly wrapping it around my front (unless it’s particularly cold). I paired it back to an easy knit dress and my go-to nude heels for an outfit that’s perfect for work, travel, or every day wear. While these items are sold out (except for the shoes) I’ve linked similar items so you can get the look!
I wore all the cozy things when we went to the mountains to celebrate my birthday. This sweater from my Gwynnie Bee unlimited closet subscription was definitely a favorite! Pullovers can be tricky for me to shop for online, so I love that I can try new styles from GB and if an item doesn’t work out I simply exchange it for something new for free, as many times as I need to. It’s the perfect way to freshen up your Fall wardrobe!
You’ll notice that not everything I wear is new because I like to find ways to creatively re-style what I already have in my wardrobe, mixing it with the latest a greatest. This lace-up sweater from the WhoWhatWear collection at Target has been a great example of an affordable fashion find that just keeps on giving.
When I travel, comfort and style are key, which is why these Eastland Shoe gold loafers are an essential in my wardrobe. Whether we’re taking a road trip, flying somewhere fun, or simply running errands these shoes are perfect for women on the go because they’re comfortable, everyday classics that never go out of style.
