The Perfect Grey

Sweater || Jeans || Sneakers || Scarf || Hat, similar || Sunglasses, similar || Handbag

A hard (but very rewarding cycling class), a good bowl of turkey chili and some HBO–last night didn’t shape up to be a bad one at all!  I am in full on fall mode.

Which means I have had my eyes peeled for some good neutral sweaters to add to my closet.  In my book, there’s nothing better than a good grey sweater!  It makes me oh so happy.  && this one does not disappoint.  It’s basic enough to layer with and has enough detailing to be worn alone.  The material is really soft and not itchy at all.  Perfect to be worn during the week to work or on the weekends when you just want to be casual & cozy.  [wearing a US 4]

&& you all–this scarf… is BACK!  It was my very fave last year so I was thrilled to see that it was back in stock.  It’s oversized, SOOOO soft, under $50 and comes in great neutral shades.  I highly suggest you grab one.  You can thank me later! 😉  ps, I have my eye on this one for my next scarf purchase.

Here’s a couple more perrrrfect grey options from Nordstrom:

Ethan and I went to the movies a couple weekends ago.  We hadn’t been in ages and now I am already ready to go back.  I swear there’s nothing that compares to it in terms of “checking out”.  When we sit and watch tv at home we are always multitasking–working on a blog post/writing emails/checking our phones.  When we go to the movies we sit and focus only on the movie and the chocolate covered raisins and the wine.  (Ok, maybe the last two are specific to only me, but you get the point, ha) The best part? We leave fully relaxed!  And the recliners they have now don’t hurt either!  So, have you all seen any good ones recently?  I need a recommendation.  🙂

Happy hump day!

IN COLLABORATION WITH NORDSTROM

Steal of a Deal! Finds under $100!

I bought a couple things this morning & wanted to share since they were such great deals! Shop my favorite funds under $100 below!

J.CREW: 30% off with free shipping AND some great fall items are actually 40% off! I haven’t bought from J.Crew in yearssss so I’m glad they’re finally back in the game.  I could not resist this oversized leopard fur vest and then I grabbed this large costume necklace too since it’s such a great price and will be perfect with anything from a plain charcoal grey sweater to a fancy holiday look!

H&M: These items aren’t in “sale” but the prices are hard to beat.  I got two of these sweaters last year and LIVED in them for work so I will definitely be grabbing more!

BOOHOO: Since you’re shopping for trend rather than quality with this retailer, everything being 50% off helps—right?!

REVOLVE: How cuuuute are some of these sweaters? I mean….

NASTY GAL: Half off the entire site? Okkkkkayyy.

This is my favorite time of year to shop! Hope you all enjoy some of these picks!

 

Sweater Dress & Tall Boots


Sweater, also found here || Boots, similar || Handbag || Sunglasses

Real life:  This week has been a trying and long one.  But, we’re on the flip side of it now because it’s….FRIDAY!  && I am really excited to share this outfit with you.

I ordered this sweater immediately when I saw it online.  The texture and shape sold me!  I decided to try it in ivory and I love how neutral it is.  I ordered this in a small and thus, was able to get by with it as a dress too.

And I will definitely pair it with tights, leggings & jeans too! The options with an oversized sweater like this are endless.

I wore this exact outfit last weekend to an engagement party.  As the night got cooler I added a grey cashmere poncho over the top.

I got these exact boots last season but they have certainly paid off.  My suggestion?–make sure you have a chunky heeled pair in your closet.  They go with so many outfits and can be worn for hours!

Ok, now let’s weekend.  Who’s with me?
