Casual Wear

It’s Monday…urgh, not my favorite day of the week, but I had a great weekend with family and friends.  I absolutely love that I can make last minute plans now that I am in Charlotte.  Sunday, we had brunch with some friends then went to a birthday party, so I wanted to wear something comfortable for the party but also a little dressy for brunch.

Luckily, I had purchased this silk bell-sleeve top from J.Crew Factory several weeks ago and it was the perfect top to pair with jeans for a dressy casual look.  The top is available in 4 different colors and is under $50, but you can get an additional 35% off by using JUSTINTIME code through the end of the day.

Since I was going to a kid’s birthday party, I opted for flats and I am not exaggerating when I tell you that these leopard flats are THE MOST COMFORTABLE SHOES EVER.   They are right under $90, but they are totally worth it…trust me, you will love these shoes!

Well, I’m off to my day job, but I hope you all have a great week. Rudy and I are headed to Asheville on Wednesday…what are you up to this week?

Perfect Turtleneck Sweater

Hey friends!  Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!  Here in Charlotte, the weather was perfect and I was actually able to wear a sweater on Sunday.  I’ve been anxiously waiting for the weather to cool down enough to wear this beautiful turtleneck sweater from StyleWe.  When I received this sweater in the mail, I was amazed at how soft and luxurious it felt.  I even said something to my husband about it and made him feel how soft it was…he thinks I’m crazy, as usual.

Come to find out, this sweater is made from a Cashmere blend, which explains the softness, but don’t worry – this piece will not break the bank.  It’s less than $100, which isn’t bad considering you could wear during Fall and Winter.  I wore a long tank under my sweater yesterday, but I can easily layer with a thicker, long-sleeve shirt and wear during Winter.

I was torn on how to style this for you guys, because you could really dress it up for a holiday party or keep it casual for a night out or even a family gathering.  I chose to pair my sweater with ripped jeans and over-the-knee boots. I personally, love this look.  You know when you put something on and you just feel like yourself?  Well, this outfit does it for me.  I don’t wear red often, but I know that this will be a go-to throughout the holiday season.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!



Red, White and Blue

It’s FriYAY!!!  We are off to Charlotte tomorrow morning to look at houses, which I’m really excited about. If you didn’t see our InstaStories yesterday, Rudy and I are moving to Charlotte.  I’m from the area, so we are happy to get closer to family and friends.

Needless to say, it’s going to be a crazy few months, but I’m looking forward to the 4th of July this year as I am headed to see a friend in Chicago. I’ve never been to Chicago, so I know it’s going to be fun to explore the city during the holiday.  As I’m packing for my trip this weekend, I will definitely pack this red dress.  When I first saw this dress, I fell in love with the silhouette and while I don’t typically wear a lot of red, I knew this would be perfect for the 4th.

When I tried the dress on, it was a little more sheer than I expected so I immediately thought to use it as a coverup.  I love that I can throw this on over my swimsuit and look cute enough to go grab lunch.  This dress is so flattering and girly…if this came in other colors, I would buy them all.

You can shop my exact dress/cover up here, but I’ve linked other red, white and blue items below.
