Hello friends! It has been *WAY* too long! I feel like I haven’t had a moment to breathe lately, but it’s been wonderful! We’ve been busy celebrating birthdays, baseball season starting, and the kickoff of playoff hockey! (In case you’re new to my life, sports are right up there with fashion to me!)
Luckily, last weekend we had ZERO plans which was great because I finally slept in (!!!), ate lots of yummy food, and did 4 different outfit posts! YAY! I will also tell you these last 4 are up there with my favorites. I’m so excited for you to see!
This particular post didn’t really start out as a planned blog post. I have outfits lined up for the blog a few weeks in advance usually (unless I buy something I’m super excited about and it gets pushed up in the rotation!), but this outfit was not one of them, I just threw it on for a fun Saturday of errands. My sweet husband assumed it was for a fashion post (he’s conditioned lol) and since we’d already done 2 of them, he thought this was #3. And the more I thought about it, the more I agreed! So, here it is!
I’ve worn these jeans on here before and it’s easy to explain why, because I LOVE THEM! I have about 20 pairs of jeans but I always reach for these. The high waist, versatile wash, and ‘tattered but not completely destroyed’ holes are a recipe for favorite denim to me. Also there’s just enough stretch in these to hug your curves with a thick enough fabric to hold everything “in place”. They don’t have this wash online anymore but these are from AE and they are the “high waisted jegging”.
This top is from the Portofino blouse collection at Express, which is another favorite. This post should actually be about holy-grail clothing collections! I love these tops for work. They’re a great pop of trendy color and pattern under a blazer or tucked into a pencil skirt, but they’re great because they work just as well on weekends! I love this fun neon floral motif, too. For weekend I decided to knot it up and make it look a bit more casual. Also I should mention this is the “classic” fit Portofino blouse..they also make a ‘slim fit’ silhouette.
The accessories of this look really deserve a shout out: they are all Old Navy, from the bangles to the bag! I don’t often purchase jewelry at Old Navy but I recently returned something without a receipt and was in a bit of a hurry, so I raided the accessories (they were all 50% off at the time) and I have to say I was pretty impressed! Great on-trend pieces that aren’t super pricey but still pack a punch. This ombre bag gave me ALL the heart eye emojis, and it was even better when I got it to the counter and it rang up $8 (it was marked $35). Don’t y’all love when that happens?!
