It’s Friday!!

How has your week been? Mine has been so long, but I am excited to announce some good news in the coming weeks. Before I vow to take the rest of tonight and tomorrow off, I wanted to hop on here and share with you this chic and effortless work day look.

I love that you can take something as casual and comfortable as joggers and transform them into a work ready look. I found these slick joggers at marshalls and knew I had to have them. I paired them here with my favorite blush cami but it would also look look great with sweaters, button ups, or a great patterned blouse. Just grab a clutch and throw on a pair of heels, and this look is ready to go for date night, cocktail hours, or any other “after work events”

Although this is a perfect after work look, post places of business require you to be a little more conservative. I work in an office with a relaxed business casual dress code; however I still need to be professional and that does not include thin straps. The tough part about putting this outfit together was being more conservative while staying true to the cute city chic look. So, I have been pairing it with my longer open front sleeveless vest that I found online at Forever 21. You can find it on this page. This helps to hide the thin straps of the slip top but doesn’t take away from the feminine look. For cooler weather or more professional environments, this look would be perfect paired with a blazer jacket or even a cardigan.

I wore this look to the office last Friday and got so many complements! I was stunned because not only was this outfit thrown together with pieces I already owned, but it is also extremely comfortable, especially for a work look. {I don’t even think people realized these were athletic pants ;)}

If you love this look and have decided you NEED a pair of black joggers to take into fall, I have linked a couple of options that are extremely similar or you can head to your local Marshalls! How would you style yours?

His & Her Fall Style With Jord Watches

Jord Wood Watch in Slate

Happy Wednesday! As promised, I am getting into all of the detail about this gorgeous Jord watch and the awesome giveaway Russell and I are hosting with them!

Russell and I have so much fun getting dressed up to go to dinner, or the movies, or even out to shop in the fall. Most of the time, we end up coordinating our outfits without even meaning to. Does that happen to anyone else? We both have such similar taste, however we differ in one big area, accessories. I love accessories like jackets, purses, jewelry, etc. but Russ can take or leave them.  As long as I have known him, I have never seen him wear a watch or any other jewelry outside of his favorite silicone (think live strong) bible quote bracelet. That was until we heard about the gorgeous (and unique) wood watches by Jord.

Jord Wood Watch and Display Box

We both immediately fell in love with not only the color and styles, but how well they were made. We both tend to be a little rough on our clothes, shoes, and accessories so it was so great to see how durable this watch could be. Not only does it come in a beautiful (and durable) box, it also comes with a watch cleaner. That is something I always look for when picking jewelry because it can be such a pain to take it to get cleaned. Having that option right at home is a major plus.

This watch with its dark wood band and its slate and rose gold face immediately called our name. It is the perfect rough and rustic look for guys, but the rose gold adds a feminine touch making it perfect for girls too. It will be great for fall with for both nicer (and dressy) occasions for men but also with casual fall looks we are both wearing here.

Mens Casual Fall Style with Levi Trucker Jacket

Shop: Watch – Be sure to enter the giveaway here! // Men’s Levi Jean Jacket // Men’s Grey Jeans // Red Dress

I am sure you have seen this red dress everywhere, especially from the recent Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This was by far one of my favorite finds. The color is amazing for fall and will layer perfectly with cardigans, sweaters, and even alone with a blanket scarf when the weather gets cooler. I bought this dress specifically with OU game days in mind. The color fits perfectly into the crimson and cream and the light flowy material will look great with cowboy boots or sandals for game days.

There are a couple fall trends for men that we both really love for fall. The first is the denim on denim trend. This trend has been everywhere for girls lately, but it is also extremely popular for guys. When jean jackets became one of the “It” styles for men we both jumped right on it. This Levi jacket has been perfect for Russ with both dark jeans, light jeans, and colored jeans as styled here. Another big fall trend he loves is button up tee shirts like this one. They layer perfectly under jackets but are also great worn alone. He will typically roll the short sleeves slightly and it makes for a stylish yet casual look.

This is our first run at a his and hers style post, so if you would like to see more please comment or email me. We had so much fun creating these looks thanks to Jord Watches and would love to create more for you and your significant other !! I loved having Russell in the pictures rather than taking them for a change, isn’t he handsome? Haha! 😉

Don’t forget to follow this link to enter the giveaway for a $100 E-gift card to Jord Watches, as a thank you for reading and entering, each person who enters but does not win the giveaway will receive a $25 E-code!

Transition Look from Work Day to Date Night

Processed with Rookie CamProcessed with Rookie CamProcessed with Rookie CamProcessed with Rookie Camimg_8775Processed with Rookie CamProcessed with Rookie CamProcessed with Rookie Camimg_8777Processed with Rookie Cam

Shop: Jeans – Similar Under $60 Here // Bag // Tank // Heels // Jacket

It’s Friday! That means only a couple days left to shop the Nordstrom sale! I have a few things left on my list to get (if they ever come back in stock). Have any of y’all tried the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings?  After seeing them on Kathleen of Carrie Bradshaw Lied I think I need them!

That brings me to this faux leather jacket (also on sale). I truly love leather jackets. They are a closet staple that can be worn year round and you can find them in so many colors. I wear my black one with shorts in the summer, dresses in the spring; any anything I can get my hands on during fall and winter. They are a great way to create an effortless (but chic and flawless) date night look, GNO look, or even the perfect office look.

This is one of my go to outfits; you can truly find pieces like this in any store and at any price point (I’ve found similar options to create this whole outfit under $50 linked below). A white tee or white tank is a must for fall! This tank layers perfectly and really helps to make a seamless look with the jacket.

I chose to pair this look with both my favorite leopard heels (on sale until Sunday) and a great pair of boot cut jeans. Honestly, I do not wear boot cut jeans often or really know how I feel about them without heels on but I am obsessed with them paired like this. I created this look for you all as an easy transition from work (PTL for casual Fridays) to date night. The boot cut jeans help to dress up the leather jacket and white tank for work while also keeping the look chic and stylish. The best part is you can wear this look now and add the jacket to transition it into fall and cooler temps.

If you are looking to create this look for less, I have tagged some options below (each piece is under $50) or for my exact look head to the shop links under the last picture J I love to hear from you all so if this is something you would like to see more often please let me know!

Get the whole look under $50: Jacket – (Under $40) // Tank (Exact from above and $15) // Leopard Heels ($32) // Jeans ($48) // Bag (On sale under $30 – tons of colors)

Hi Y’all! Happy Wednesday! Sorry I haven’t posted in a few days, it has been crazy between work, blogging, and living life. I am sure you know by now that the Nordstrom sale will be ending in just a few days 😦 that means that everything will be going back up to its original prices.

I also heard from a lot of you that you are ready to see easy transition looks for the fall. So, for the next couple of weeks, I will be posting a ton of looks that you can take from one season to the next just by changing one or two things on your outfit. For example, you can take a look straight into cooler temps just by changing out shorts for jeans or sandals for booties. I know that this time of year can be so expensive to shop so I am here to make it as easy (and as inexpensive) as possible.

This was a look I styled using items I already had in my closet from this year and last year. It was super simple to put together but is easily one of my favorites. This cowl neck sweater/vest is perfect for this time of year. You can wear it now with a pair of jeans or shorts to give you that fall look while staying cool in the 80-90 degree temps. (There is an identical sweater available from the Nordstrom sale linked here in tons of colors). This sweater will also layer perfectly closer to the end of fall and even into winter. Just pick your favorite long sleeve tee (I typically do a dark red, grey, or striped tee) and your look is ready for the cooler temps.

As far as accessories go, I am horrible about adding a lot of accessories to my look in the summer. I always feel like accessories combined with hot temps weigh me down. Does anyone else feel like that? In fall and winter I am totally opposite. I love accessories. I can see myself wearing this floppy hat, blanket scarfs, and every other fall accessory daily. I will let you in on a secret for fall accessories… always check your local Wal-Mart’s and Targets. Russell and I found this hat at Wal-Mart of all places for under $10 (linked here in two colors) and it looks way higher quality than $10! That is insane considering some run $60-100 dollars.  I also have picked up a few at Target under $30. These add the perfect fall touch to your outfit and are so cute!

I want to know, what are you guys most excited to see this fall? Anything I have to add to my cart?
