3 Monochromatic Outfit Ideas
My youngest daughter has been rocking the cutest monochromatic outfits lately and she has totally inspired me. It's usually a lot of gray, which is funny because she loves color - but I love the looks she puts together (she's only 8!). I usually love a pop of color, so I'm not typically into the monochromatic look, but wanted to try out a few ideas, and I have to say - I loved them. The gray palette is so pretty mixed with some blacks, but would also look amazing with some winter whites.
I started with my favorite pair of gray jeans and a henley - that I'm obsessed with - and then layered pieces on top. All pieces are linked at the bottom, or you can always reach out to me directly for any links - happy to help!

I'd love to hear from you! Let me know what you think about these looks. I'd also love to know if you're into a monochromatic look and what colors you prefer!
This faux leather jacket is one of my faves! It's such a great Amazon find and goes with so many looks. I love it paired with the gray look to add a bit more texture to the outfit. I love the combat boot trend right now - these boots are so comfirtable, but are also so cute! Love the fur detail. These are from a local boutique La Mere Clothing and Goods.

Grab a poncho
This poncho is one of my go-to's for when I'm traveling (I cant wait to travel again!!). It's an old one, but I linked some very similar options below. It's nice to use as a blanket on a flight if it gets cold and can be wrapped around as a scarf - I love the versatility. If you're traveling somewhere warm, it's also great to throw on at night if it gets a little chilly instead of having to lug a coat with you.
I love this hat too!! Another great Amazon find that comes in so many cute colors. The gray is such a nice neutral - not as boring as plain black, but still versatile enough to wear with so many outfits. I also have the red one that's a lot of fun and it's so affordable that it's nice to have options!!
These booties are some of my faves from Target - their really chic and the heel height is low so they really comfortable. I have them in leopard print as well and those have lasted a very long time.
This one is the most comfy and probably how most of us our living lives these days! These sneaks are SO good - under $20 and I love the leopard print detail. I've had these for about a year and they've held up remarkably well.
This scarf is from Etsy and transforms into the cutest crisscross sweater - I love something that works double duty! It's also SO warm and cozy.

3 Ways to Wear Faux Leather Leggings
I have several pairs of faux leather leggings and I think these are my faves! They are super stretchy and comfy and really look like leather. Plus, they are super inexpensive - they're currently on sale for $41!
I know some people are wary of wearing them, but I love that they can be dressed up or dressed down. I wanted to provide some options for those of you on the fence!
I loves these paired with a poncho or any oversized sweater as an everyday look. This poncho is on sale for $29 and it comes in so many cute colors. I love this bright purple - I don't have many clothes in this color and it just really pops! These boots are my Fall FAVES! The heel isn't too high and I'm loving the fur. They're sturdy enough for rain and snow, but still look super cute! You can buy them here from one of my favorite local boutiques and make sure to use this link for $15 off your order, making these boots only $53!
These leggings are perfect for a casual outfit - they are one of the most comfy pairs of leggings I own and who doesn't want to rock a little faux leather even when you're going casual?? I love them paired with a plaid flannel and puffer vest. This vest is an oldie, but I'm linking another cute, lightweight option below. These sneaks are so fun and less than $20! Love the pop of leopard, and they're really comfy too!
These leggings definitely call for a girls night out or date night! They are really flattering on so many body types and take any outfit up a notch! I love them paired with this leopard cami with just a touch of lace! This cami is nice b/c it's not clingy at all and hangs just right! Also comes in so many other cute colors! You could also throw on a leather jacket or cute cardi with this look.

Old Navy Try-On!
As sad as I am that Summer is ending, I am loving Fall fashion. Old Navy has some super cute sweaters and looks for the cooler weather - love all the colors too! Also love how affordable all of these looks are. Feel free to send me an email or leave a comment with any questions!
I'm loving this plaid flannel! It's kind of a grayish/greenish color and the material is super lightweight. Perfect apple picking attire :)
I LOVE this sweater. I'm a huge fan of a v-neck and this sweater is super lightweight and the ribbing is cute. Also comes in a lot of cute colors, but I'm loving this neutral - would look so cute with leather leggings and booties too!
Another super cute top - this camo is so neutral, love the whitewash shades and this is another top that is super lightweight - doesn't add bulk at all. Perfect for lounging around the house!
Mocha Pointelle Knit Sweater
Love this color! This knit sweater is so fun. Love the over sized sleeves, v-neck and the knit! Comes in some other cute colors, but this one screams Fall to me!
I think was my favorite piece of the whole try-on. Such a cute knit dress that transitions so well from warmer weather to cooler weather. Another super lightweight piece that's perfect for hanging around the house, but can also be dressed up. Love it with a belt, but it's also cinched at the waist, so it looks really cute on it's own. And these booties are AMAZE. They are a Steve Madden dupe from Amazon Prime and are so good.
Leopard dress transitioned from Summer to Fall
This is SUCH a fun dress! I love the small leopard print and it has smocking on the back, which is so comfy. It's such a great summer dress, but it's a really great transitional piece too. I love it with OTK boots and a leather jacket!
I wanted to share some cute, affordable suits for those of you going on a Winter getaway! I’m heading to Bali next week and I CAN’T WAIT!! It was a bit intimidating trying on bathing suits in the dead of winter - BUT I know you guys appreciate the fact that I put myself out there and I hope I can inspire others to do the same! I’m definitely not the skinniest girl, but I’m happy with the person I’ve become on the inside over the last few years and have learned to love the outside too - tummy rolls and all ?.
You can click on any picture below to get a link to the suit, or scroll down to the bottom for everything. I get a small commission on anything you buy. Thanks so much for supporting me! Please feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions!
This one is SO cute. You guys know I can’t get enough leopard print and this one is super flattering with the ruching. I love the neckline too. This would look great on so many different body types. This hat was my go to last summer and I plan to wear it a lot in Bali. It's lightweight and packable.
I bought this last summer and you guys loved it (and so did I!). Under $30 and really flattering. I love the color blocking! It's a bit cheeky, which is super cute too! I sized up in this one, which was helpful because I have a long torso. Because of that, it's probably a bit lower cut in the bust, but it still works!
Low cut lace
This is another favorite from last year. I love the lace detail and it's pretty full coverage in the bum! It is a bit low cut in the front and you definitely have to be careful that the girls don't fall out! Looks great though and if you're not planning on doing anything too crazy, it's a great suit for lounging on the beach or by the pool.
I LOVE this one!! It is SO flattering and I love the fact that you don't get tan lines! The nice thing is that there are straps you can add if you want, but this one stays up really well and I love the ruffle detail so much. Plus, there's some ruching so it's really flattering!
How cute is this suit!?? I'm obsessed with the colors! Also a bit cheeky. The fit is really great - I love the wrap look and the cute bow detail. And it's only $30! It also comes in really cute green shades and orange creamsicle shades! I sized up 1 in this suit!
This kimono coverup is great - so flowy and easy and perfect to throw on over any of these suits!
Amazon Try-on Sesh
It's been a while since I've done a try-on session! Amazon has some amazing pieces that are super affordable, but you definitely have to be careful about the quality. I really liked all of these pieces that I purchased this time around. There are definitely some differences in what was in the picture and what I actually got, which I've noted below. There are links to shop below the images.
Just a reminder that I get a small commission for any link you click and then decide to purchase. I appreciate your support! Please feel free to send me an email or leave a comment with any questions - I'm happy to help!
Color Block Cardi
I love this cardi! I feel like long cardigans are the kimono of the Fall! So nice just to throw something on over jeans and a tee or leggings and look presentable :)
I thought this would have pockets, but now I see I just didn't look hard enough! There are other colors with pockets that I think I would have preferred. I'm also linking another really cute cardi that is a dupe of a Madewell one. I do like that this one comes in so many cute colors. I really love the blue/white/gray combo too!
I really love this top for a girl's night out or date night. The quality is really good, one problem is that it's not lined in the back! It would still look really cute with a black strapless bra, but I defintiley like more coverage in the back. You could definitely pair it with a black cami, but the straps would obviously show - but would be a cute look too. Another option would be to pair it with a cute bralette like this one. Comes is some other really cute colors too. And I love it paired with the leopard booties :)
Cozy Knit Cardigan
How sweet is this cardigan?? I've been eyeing this one for a while and it's so perfect for Fall/Winter. I love a Winter white! This also comes in pink which is super cute for Valentine's Day! This one just reminds me of an Irish sweater - love it!
This is a great casual top! I love the pink!! It looked more like a sweatshirt to me in the pic, but it's actually quite thin, so it doesn't bulk you up at all! Perfect piece for casual weekends! Love that you can wear it off one shoulder too.
OMG! This is my favorite piece from this haul. These pullovers are everywhere this Fall and I'm obsessed with this one! Super affordable and SO cozy! I love the pink detail. It also comes in a really pretty white with pink detail, but I knew I would just make a mess of that, so I went with the gray! There are a lot of other pretty color combos though. For under $30, you definitely need this in your wardrobe for Fall!!
This is another really nice staple piece! I'm loving the leopard trend, but if you're concerned how long the trend will last, this is perfect b/c it's so affordable. I love it under a blazer or leather jacket. Would also look great with a pencil skirt and booties. The neckline looks a lot lower in the pic, but it's really a crew neck and you can see in my picture below.
Stopped in at Target this week after work one day and tried on some fun summer dresses (plus a jumpsuit and a bathing suit!). There are a lot of really cute patterns for summer - lots of florals, which I love! Click the pictures below to shop.

Love this adorable feminine dress! Can't wait to wear this in the summer with some cute nude sandals, but it looks super cute paired with a moto jacket. It would also look great for work with a navy blazer. The blue color is so great too - realyl love this one!
