Fall Staples

Because we love this style so much and are falling for fall fashion, we decided to do a double post for you!  Moto jackets are the in full force this year, and Blank NYC has affordable suede jackets that are flattering and gorgeous on every silhouette.  We both took a plunge and splurged on jeans, and we both agree, they are well worth the extra cost, the stretch material doesn’t need washing to rejuvenate after one wear and they are like wearing butter.  Kaitlan is pairing her outfit with a camisole from Express and Jacki is wearing a cashmere turtleneck from Halogen.  Ladies, these staples are a must have for Fall 2017, and are such classic looks they will continue to be for years to come.  Contact us for Nordstrom Trunk Club information!

Forty ~ Wrap Maxi Dress

I searched high and low for the perfect summer maxi dress, and when I thought all was lost, I came across this beauty! This wrap maxi dress is the perfect length for my petite frame, it’s lightweight, flowy, and oh-so pretty, while the opening slit gives it a little sexiness! The gorgeous pattern on the dress gives it such a boho-chic vibe – something that I’ve never really thought I could pull off! I decided to pair this dress with a pair of strappy wedge sandals (of course if you’re taller than 5 feet you could go with a pair of flat sandals to complete your look!) I’m definitely adding this to my summer faves!

Thirty~ Green Summer Dress

I love dresses, not only because they instantly give you the feminine look, but you don’t have to match pieces!  I buy most of my dresses from Ross since they have such an incredible selection, this dress is at least years two old and I have worn it like, a billion times, both to work and weddings and it is so versatile for summer wear.  The dress was supposed to have a belt, but it was missing so I got an extra 15% off, and I used a braided belt for some contrast.  These Nine West shoes are now my staple shoes (now on clearance), so get used to them!

Forty ~ My Summer Must-Haves!

This summer has been super busy for all of us, and sometimes we had to remind each other to slow down an take a deep breath! We are trying to play catch up with our posts and decided to highlight our summer faves in one post for your viewing pleasure!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First up, let’s talk about these super cute palazzo pants! They are so lightweight and super comfy – definitely perfect for summer , either at work, or out and about! I purchased them at Target, but unfortunately they’re all sold out! Don’t fret I have linked similar pairs below that are just as cute! I paired my pants with a neutral bodysuit, strappy nude heels and fun accessories to bring everything together!

What else screams summer outfit more than a crop top and crop pants? This combo was definitely a fave for me! The pink crop top worked so well with the cropped pants, it was like they were made for each other!! And check out these super fabulous pink strappy pumps! The perfect shade of pink to compliment the crop top! I added some bling with the gorgeous Nahla necklace from Stella & Dot.

You can’t go through the Summer season without a good romper, or jumpsuit! The following are two of my faves! What I love most about this jumpsuit is the fun off-the-shoulder style and the flared pant leg! (Don’t tell anyone, but it’s really supposed to be culottes, but because of my petite frame, they actually worked as regular pant length!) It can be dressed up with a pair of heels, or dressed down with flats. The romper caught my eye because of the vibrant purple color and pretty florals. It’s no too short, or too loose! These can also be dressed up for date night, or dressed down for a day at the winery! Both of these a are so versatile and definitely perfect for any Summer day!

Summer is the time to pull out the bright and vibrant colors, which is why I chose this beautiful coral ensemble! The blouse is lightweight and compliments the black and white pleated skirt nicely! If you look close enough, you can see little coral flecks embedded in the skirt! Of course, I had to wear matching coral shoes because……why not?!

Thirty ~ A few of my Summer Favorites

Sorry for the delay in posts, we have all been super busy with life and changes (for the better!) But I have decided to put together a few of my favorite outfits.  The dress I bought about a year and a half ago, is from Ross which  which in my opinion is the best place for dresses.  . It’s super versatile, I’ve worn it to a wedding and also to work. And since it’s super difficult to find online, I will give some dupes.  Also, because it was missing the belt I got the price taken down even more!

You can recognize this blouse from an earlier post, it is so flattering that I try to wear it as often as you can wear a bright pink top! These high wasted pants are from New York and Co. and I have had them for at least 5 years and have worn them probably a thousand times. I am debating taking the seam out so I can wear them with higher heels, but my lazier side is telling me they are OK the way they are.

Last but not least is this full skirt that I loooove.  I honestly feel like I am in the wrong generation, and if I could have a closet full of full skirts and dresses, I would. This whole outfit (besides the shoes) is New York and Company.

Forty ~ Summery Sheath Dress

I found this pretty summery sheath dress hidden amidst all the clothes in my closet and decided to dust it off! Even though it is is three seasons old, it’s still a classic piece that can be worn for years to come. What I love most about this dress is the subtle pop of yellow throughout the blue, black and white hues. Luckily for me, I had a pair of bright yellow heels and a bangle to match, which completed the whole ensemble!

Thirty~ Bright Blue Pencil Skirt

So, I almost forgot how much I love this skirt, the brightness of the whole outfit cheers me up.  I used to wear it with flats, when I had to walk around a lot, so it wasn’t very flattering, but once I started pairing it with heels it stopped looking frumpy. Both of these bright and gorgeous pieces were from JC Penney so you know they were a great price, but aren’t available anymore, but dupes are in the links!
