Friday Faves

Friday Four: October 11th

Happy Friday! It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged and even longer since I’ve done a Friday Four so this is long overdue but better late than never. It’s been such a crazy semester but I’m really enjoying all of my classes this year, as challenging as they are we’ve moved beyond the foundational knowledge and have stepping into synthesizing all of that information and applying it to real people which has been a huge mix of exciting and scary.

Now that I’ve settled back into my routine I’m trying to spend more time getting back into what I love, with a focus on reading and blogging since it’s been nearly a month since I’ve done either! One thing I have been doing a lot of this year is meditation and I will definitely be sharing some of that on the blog as well. Here are some ideas I have for upcoming posts but let me know what else you’d like to see:

  • How to look professional and stylish
  • Fall fashion
  • My favorite smoothie recipes
  • Mason jar lunches
  • How to vibrate higher with meditation (and crystals!)
  • How to use palo santo to keep the good vibes flowing

Here’s to getting some R&R this weekend!

Fall Transitions

Long Sleeve Artist Tee from J. Crew Factory
Scalloped Sidewalk Skirt from J. Crew Factory. The J. Crew website didn’t have this color so I linked it through Amazon.

This time of year is so hard! I want fall to be in full swing already but it gets so hot by mid-afternoon I would die of heat stroke if I walked home from school in my sweater and bean boots combo. Which is why I’m here to tell you about the best fall transition outfit: a skirt and long sleeve top!

I have J. Crew Sidewalk skirts in so many colors but I love the scallops on this one (thanks Mom!). And it pairs so nicely with my “pumpkin spice” shirt! This color wasn’t available on the website but they did have a nice navy striped shirt that would be perfect for fall. Since I was on the Cape (not quite but almost across the bridge) in this photo I opted for sandals to make it a little more summery.

Ignore my hair, I had just ran a 10K.

Practically the same look but I swapped out the sandals for ballet flats. I picked out a different Sidewalk Skirt (J. Crew Factory didn’t have this color on their website but I found a ton on Poshmark!) and a black sweater from Banana Republic Factory. This sweater is from a a few years ago but here is a similar one!

Who doesn’t go pumpkin picking with out their pearls?

And now we’ve broken out the tall boots. This is the same sweater from above with a skirt from Loft that I bought at a consignment store. This isn’t the same skirt, but I love the buffalo plaid!

You don’t have to pull out all the heavy duty sweaters just yet but here are some colors to incorporate into your outfits to start the transition to fall:

  • Navy
  • Gold
  • Mustard Yellow
  • Deep Reds
  • Burnt Oranges
  • Black

And you don’t need to go shopping for a whole new wardrobe! Look at what you have and see how versatile it can be. Changing up the pants/skirt/necklaces you wear with a sweater can give it a whole new look!

Let me know your favorite fall trends in the comments!

Weekly Style 16

J. Crew Factory just released new spring clothes so here is a round up of some of my favorites!

 

Chambray Ruffle Tie Sleeve Dress

I fell in love with tie sleeves when I first started seeing them last fall and I am so happy they are here to stay! I also love the chambray and I think it’s perfect for the transition from winter to spring.

Here are some cute earrings from BaubleBar that would look great with this dress! I love the lavender for spring but I think the gold would also look great!

End on End Ruffle Front Tank Top

This shirt comes in navy and light blue and it another great transition piece. You can wear it with a cardigan on those colder days and then once it gets a little warmer you can leave the sweater at home! This look wouldn’t be complete without pearl earrings and big sunglasses!

Scalloped Sidewalk Skirt

I didn’t know I needed this in my life but now I can’t live without it! The sidewalk skirt is my favorite J. Crew  piece and now there are scallops! I need this green color and it also comes in black, red, and blue. This skirt would also look so cute with these wedges from DSW:

Scalloped Cami

Sticking with the scallop theme how cute is this top?! I love the simple detail on the top and think it’s perfect for that put together look. This top comes in so many colors: lavender, white, mint, pink, and blue, but the pink and blue are almost gone so act fast! If you’re looking for shoes to wear with this cami those wedges above also come in black!

Tie Front Wrap

This shirt takes me back to the ballet days! It also comes in gray and black but I definitely prefer the pink! If you’re looking for shoes to go with this top definitely pick out some flats that tie at the ankle. This is a pair from Vince Camuto that I really love!

Bow Neck Sweater

If you don’t love this sweater you’re crazy! I think it is so cute and I had to include it once I saw it was back in stock! And it would look fabulous with the Vince Camuto flats!!

 

That’s all for today! Stay stylish!
