Happy Thursday! I have to say that even though I’m as SAHM, I am SO glad we are closer to the weekend… Anyone else? 🙋🏽♀️ I’ve been dying to share some goodies that I got from Lulus with you. This gorgeous surplice mauve blouse is one of them. I am absolutely crushing on this color and think it’s perfect for fall, even though it’s on a lighter color scheme. 😃 Quite honestly, I feel that you could probably wear this one through the seasons. I paired it with one of my favorite pair of jeans, but I think it would also go perfectly with a denim skirt, black skinnies or even white pants, if you’re the type to wear white after Labor Day. 😛
The snakeskin sandals are also from Lulus and because the weather here allows for sandals nearly year round, I had to add them to my list of must-haves. So don’t be shocked if you see them here more than once. Below I am sharing a few other picks from my recent haul. The rest of the items in my look are also linked below. Take a look and decide what you want to buy. 😃
Back to school shopping has to be my favorite thing to do with Nayelli! We’ve been doing BTS shopping for five years now but this year is really special because Nalani is joining us! Yes, I will have two kids in school this time around and I’m experiencing all the feels 😔! She’s going into pre-school and I can hardly believe it. So, to get a head-start on our shopping, we headed to Burkes Outlet! If you remember, I’ve sharedmy favorite finds from a recent haul here before. And because I found some great deals on my last haul, I knew I had to keep Burkes at the top of my shopping list for back to school season.
I love being able to find on trend styles at affordable prices, this is why I turned to Burkes Outlet to help get their wardrobes ready for the new school year. The best part is being able to conveniently shop both online and in-store. This time we decided to do most of our back to school shopping in store and the girls loved it. It was such a fun experience. This store is relatively new to our area and I couldn’t be more excited to have a Burkes Outlet close by. 😃
Did you shop the Nordstrom Sale? I did! And contrary to popular belief, I didn’t splurge. I set a budget and stuck to it. Even then, I ended up giving up on some styles that I thought I’d love when shopping online. This bodysuit is one of my top picks and while it’s sold out, I found this one which is very similar and comes in four colors! Plus, it’s on sale right now and under $14! 😉 I’ve thought of a few ways to wear this and thought it would be pair well with a denim skirt. But will likely style it a few more ways and share it with you here or on my social profiles.
To add a fun touch to the look, I thought I’d wear my snakeskin boots which seem to be an item that will trend again this fall. While, I often keep accessories to a minimum but I’ve been playing around with hats and headbands. Especially over on Instagram! I’m liking this hat because it was a great find at under $18! It’s a piece that can be worn now and later, and almost year round. The handbag, you’ve seen before and the black option is also part of the N Sale. I love this Tory Burch option because it’s similar to the Gucci Camera Bag but much more affordable! 😃
Bodysuits are one of my favorite styles, in fact one that I wear all year long. Express, one of my favorite retailers has a great selection of bodysuits; including the one that I’m sharing today. This one is on sale and under $20. Plus, it has a fun cutout design on the back. So, I wanted to share it along with some other finds in the bodysuit department.
I love bodysuits because they can be worn so many ways, with jeans (like I did here), skirts, shorts, and even trouser. I also love that if it’s a style that buttons at the bottom, you don’t necessarily have to wear it that way, you can simply tuck it in and leave it unbuttoned. I point this out because many people have expressed their dislike for bodysuits because of the button requirement.
My style is mostly casual, especially in the summer. And I couldn’t help but wear this bodysuit with my favorite jeans – which I’m linking for you below. I blindly recommend these because they’re great quality. I have worn them many times to create different looks. To accomplish an absolute laid back and casual look, I kept all accessories to the minimum by wearing dainty pieces. Like the layered necklace look, which is somewhat new to me but I’m loving. I still want to add one more piece to complete it though. The bag you have seen many times before because it’s my summer go-to. 🙂 Now, I’m curious to know your opinion on bodysuits.
Faux leather leggings are an item that I’ve had my eye on forever. On a trip to Express, I found these! I wasn’t sure how they’d fit on my but decided to try them anyway and I actually liked the fit. I don’t have any regrets on this buy because… I feel that these are so versatile and can be worn in so many way! Dress them up or dress them down, however they’re worn, they’d make a nice outfit.
This time, I decided to pair them with OTK boots and the prettiest sweater which seems to have sold out, but I am linking a similar item for you. I love that ruffle details on this sweater – apparently I have a thing for ruffles. 🙂 And as far as accessories, I didn’t really wear much other than my go-to handbag, earrings and the Starbucks cup (which seems to be a thing with me lately).
Since being back from my trip, Houston has been cold. I mean high 50s low 60s kind of cold. I’m not sure if it’s a cold front or here to stay… The bad thing is that I had to adjust coming back from Central America’s warm weather. The good, is that it is finally cooler and officially sweater weather. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite sweaters that I picked up during this year’s N Sale. While this one is available in very few sizes, I have linked some favorite styles from the same brand for you to shop. I have also linked the jeans – yes, I plan to wear white for as long as I can regardless of the no-white after labor day rule. 😉 The handbag and block heel sandals are also linked below, so get to shopping!
