Mini transitions

Hey lovelies!

As a shorter person, I wear a lot of mini skirts year round to help my tiny legs look longer. To make them more “seasonally appropriate”, I change up the rest of the outfit. I thought I’d show y’all how I style this geometric mini skirt for summer and a couple easy changes to make it fall (or winter in the South haha) appropriate.

So here is the basic outfit. It can be fancied up with heels or a different top but this is an easy brunch or hanging out look that I wear often in the summer. Below I’ve linked some similar items in this picture!

Tank: Nordstrom Rack – $10

Printed Skirts: Nordstrom Rack – $20

Vici Collection – $38

Hope’s – $36

SheIn – $17

This is the next iteration as the seasons begin to change. Again, this is an easy brunch, dinner, birthday party, what have you look.

Jean Jacket: Nordstrom – $99

Last, but certainly not least (and kinda my fave look). I love this duster and I think it’s fairly unexpected with a mini skirt but can add some warmth to a mini skirt outfit when the weather gets a little bit chilly.

Black Duster: Nordstrom Rack – $110

Nordstrom Rack – $27

How do y’all transition your summery clothes into fall?

Thanks for reading, lovelies!

Leopard Touches

Hey lovelies!

Have you heard that leopard is cool again? No longer is it for grandmas who still totally have “it”! Leopard is basically a Fall 2018 neutral. This is a lot for some gals to handle. One of my best friends said the other day “I don’t know what has to happen in my life to make me feel ok to wear leopard but I’m ready for it” πŸ˜‚. In light of this epic paradigm shift, I thought I’d show y’all how I would tip-toe into this leopard trend.

First of all, are these AMAZING leopard flats. They are a great, literally, “tip-toe” into this trend and would look great with jeans and almost any top. (Here I paired them with some black cords and this comfy green sweater for a look perfect for a Christmas party!)

Target – $20

This super cute belt is another great way to ease your way into this trend. Look this bad boy into a pair of high waisted pants and front tuck your shirt ( Ñ la Tan France 😍) and that is a LEWK, lovely.

Loft – $40

Another way to add leopard to your repertoire is a super cute clutch. This one from Red Dress Boutique is a super cute option for a night on the town and Brunch with the girls accompanied with a fun dress.

Red Dress – $35

Alright, hear me out on this one before you stop reading. This is a super cute top and paired with some other neutral items (jeans, black booties, a black cardigan or leather jacket) and it tones down the “extraness” of this top. Also, this would look super cute under a colored corduroy jumper dress.

SheIn – $8

Hopefully, this little guide helps y’all lean into this leopard trend!

Ath-lying

Don’t let this outfit fool you, I didn’t work out all weekend.

But I did spend a bunch of time on the water with this hunk!

It wasn’t that I was super unhealthy this weekend but it just wasn’t a priority. I’m making a pledge to y’all right now that I’m going to work out 3 times this week and eat healthy all week! Maybe I’ll actually put this outfit to work this week πŸ˜‚.

Yoga pants: Nordstrom – $28-$55

Tank top: Under Armour – $30 (black & grey)

Sweater: Nordstrom – $45 (currently out of stock)

Anyone else want to try to be healthy with me this week??

FREE WINE!! 🍷πŸ₯‚

Hey lovelies! If y’all have been following me for any amount of time you know that I love a good glass of wine. BUT I get pretty overwhelmed when I’m in the wine aisle. I have a general sense of what I like but oh goodness do I wish that someone else could pick things that I know I would like!

ENTER: Bright Cellars. This is a shipment of wine delivered to your door monthly! Specifically picked for you based on a super easy quiz and your ratings of previous shipments.

I got my first shipment today and I was so excited! The first wine I tried was a white blend from Santa Rosa, CA. JT tried it and he liked it so much he went back for a second glass!

I know what you’re thinking, “Kim, WHAT ABOUT THE FREE WINE?!” I hear you, and I shall deliver: use this Link and you can get 2 FREE BOTTLES of wine on your first shipment!!

Literally, it comes out to 5 bottles for $38!! That’s an awesome deal in my book!

Let me know what y’all think!! Because I’m loving this!

Hope’s Try On Session

Hey lovelies!

I recently did some shopping at this super cute boutique on Saint Simons Island that I really love. I wanted to show y’all some of the things that I really liked that I think will be great for fall!

First up, is this super cute teal sweater that I loved so much I bought it! These sleeves were so cute and I lovedddd the drama of them. This is going to look so cute over jeans with boots or with shorts while we’re still in the fall transition.

Sweater: This is us sweater – $40

(currently Pre-Order)

LOVE these sleeves!

So, I’m going to plead me culpa here. I tried this dress on and I’m so dumb, I forgot to take a picture πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈ. BUT this was a super cute flirty little dress that also comes in a light teal.

My fave part of this dress was the strappy back. Even though it did make it kind of difficult to put on haha.

Leave Me Breathless Dress – $35

So this sweater was giving me some Hogwarts vibes. I felt like I had just been sorted into Gryffindor with these longgg sleeves and colors.

Sweater: Fall Festival Cutie Sweater – $39 (currently Pre-Order)

These lightweight joggers were so comfy I nearly curled up on the seat in the dressing room and started a Netflix binge πŸ˜‚.

These are the tan version because sadly this color is sold out

Kickin’ it Joggers – $36

Besides this stuff, this boutique has a TON of cute stuff online that’s not in the boutique storefront.

Let me know what y’all think!!

Summer to Fall transition

Hey lovelies!

In theory, the weather is suppose to be cooling off soon (probably not here in South GA for a while though lol). So with that in mind, I thought I’d show y’all a look that I love that easily transitions from spring/summer to fall.

This dress is one of my faves right now because it’s simple, easy, and comfy. Also super cheap! Amazon $10

I paired it with a classic jean jacket (tied at my natural waist to pull the eye to the smallest part of me) and a statement earring for color.

Jean jacket:Amazon

Earrings: Target

If the cool weather ever comes, one of the ways I’ll transition this dress to the fall is here.

These boots and I have been running around together for close to 8 years and I love them so much it hurts. I love this red sweater layered on top of this dress almost as much. Mixing a tight piece with a loose piece is a great way to change things up and feel a little bit more modest in a show-offy dress.

Boots: Nordstrom $149 (not the same but similar)

Sweater: Goodnight Macaroon $59 (not the same but a super cute alternative)

Earrings: Target

What are your favorite ways to transition items from summer to fall??

Workout Wear Update

I’ve been working on looking cuter at the gym than just my normal “old t-shirt and shorts” look. In doing this, I’ve bought a couple of cute workout shirts and have increased the number of Nike shorts (Norts) in my wardrobe.

I’ve been a fan of Norts since college. They were the cool thing to wear to class and look like you just rolled out of bed looking that cute (although most of us looked like we were high class hobos haha). They are still my favorite workout shorts to this day.

They’re not super cheap but Dicks is currently having a Back-to-School sale where they are 25% off! ($22.50)

This sale also has other assorted Nike & Under Armor apparel and shoes. Here are a couple that I like!

This super cute sports bra! ($22)

I think I need this in black because this deal is awesome! ($17)

Another super cute tank top that would be great for hiking and other low-impact workouts! ($30)

I bought these shorts like 10 years ago and they are still some of my fave lounge/sleep shorts. ($21) Always hoping that one day I’ll have the courage/self love to workout in these in public!

Another tank top…are you guys seeing a trend? πŸ˜‚ ($19)

These are another super cute workout shirt option ($26)

Happy cute workouts lovelies!!

Romper city

Hey lovelies!

Anyone else in love with rompers? πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

Here are a couple I am definitely going to be buying once that sweet direct deposit hits!

I love this one! It’s so sunny and sooo cute with the little cut out. And how can you beat $14?!?

SheIn

This is so cute, I can’t even stand it. And it’s perfect for a bachelorette weekend for a bride!!

Vici Dolls

This would be ridiculously cute with a pair of boots to really lean into the country vibe.

Hope’s

This is so basic and could be dressed up or down so easily.

Dress Up

I’m in love with anything lace. This is a little scandalous but it could easily be de-scandalized with a cami or a bralette.

Amazon

Loving these stripes!

Happy shopping lovelies!

#nsale picks

Hey lovelies!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is FINALLY open to non-card holders!! I have put together a list of some of the things that may definitely be in my cart over the next few days (and that will be on my birthday wishlist for the 16th!!).

I am starting off with my number 1 wishlist item: this ridiculously cute faux suede mini Skirt.

Next on my list are these spanx faux leather leggings that I can’t wait to wear all fall and winter with sweaters and cardigans.

Spanx Faux leather leggings

While I’m thinking about cozy fall and winter outfits, this is literally the coziest looking pullover ever made. (And would look totally adorable over the faux leather leggings above.)

Fuzzy Quarter zip

Full disclosure: this is currently sold out but I am praying for a restock because I think it’s super cute.

Lace trim cami

So I love both colors of this but I would choose the olive green color for myself. However, that is currently sold out in everything but XL; the burnt red color is stocked in all colors.

Moto Jacket

I am not usually a fan of tank tops to work out in but I would definitely make an exception for this cutie!

Workout Tank

These are such a necessity I can’t even stand it! These are so freaking cute!

Moto Leggings

This jumpsuit is so classy, I think this would be perfect for a fall wedding.

Surplice jumpsuit

I wish I lived in a place where coats are necessary because this one is so stinking cute.

Ruffle Coat

This cardigan looks so soft and comfy. I can just imagine lounging around the house with leggings and fuzzy socks

Long Circle Cardigan

Again, I’m hoping for a restock in this ridiculously amazing shift dress but it is still available in L & XL.

Suede Shift Dress

I love this open back dress for a fall wedding with some tan, camel or black booties (or over the knee boots if you’re feeling saucy).

Burgundy Open Back Dress

I get to wear jeans to work but if I worked in an office this would definitely be on my wish list as a closet staple.

Workwear skirt

Again, totally easy, comfy looking closet work wear staple.

A-line grey dress

Alright, lovelies, that’s all for me right now! Let me know what y’all think!

AMAZON PRIME DAY!!

This is it! The day we’ve all been waiting for!! PRIME DAY!!

Real talk: I get hyped leading up to this sale every year and then every year it frustrates me. Truthfully, this sale is a bloggers worst nightmare: continual new content, massive stock outs, and VAST merchandise. There’s basically a different sale every 5 hours and for a 36 hour sale… that’s A LOT of work on your friendly neighborhood blogger.

All of that being said, here are some things that are or would be in my cart this year (ya gurl ain’t made of money πŸ˜‚).

Note: these are just items that are on sale for the entire sale

The first thing I’m really excited about is an Amazon Fire tv stick for $19.99! I absolutely love mine becauseΒ itΒ upgrades your normal TV to a smart TV for fraction of the cost

The next thing has been on my grown- up wish list since I knew they existed: a Roomba 😍. This thing is the height of luxury as far as I’m concerned. It’s on sale for $230 (you save $120). I’m a simple girl who hates vacuuming and loves videos of small animals riding on said vacuums.

These shoes are definitely going to be in my cart. A) because I am desperately in need of good running shoes B) this is an awesome deal. These bad boys are 40% off at $48.

While we’re on the subject of fitness, I thought I would mention this because I am in desperate need of a new Fitbit and this is a great deal at 40% off. This is the Fitbit Alta HR and I’ve been wanting one for a while.

Also, if you’re looking for a cute work out top to wear with the last two items. This is the one. Only $20 and it will go with almost any leggings (I have this problem all the time with none of my cute top matching my cute pants/shorts!).

Alright, stay with me here, the Amazon basics on this sale are kind of awesome.

This deal is 320 Lysol wipes for $11.99 PLUS a 20% coupon at check out ($9.60 total).

Back to our regularly scheduled program!

I’m not one for watches because I have almost completely lost the ability to tell time (yes, my mother is very disappointed). However, if I were to get a watch this Kate Spade one is the one that I would get. It’s a hybrid smart watch with step tracking, notifications, and such. Also, it’s cute as hell.

If I were going to pick something to quietly listen to my every conversation and be my master once the computers rise up, this certified refurbished Echo plus would be it!

I have been looking for a curling wand since my 10 year old curling iron crapped out a couple weekend ago. This one is super highly rated and only $10 after the 30% coupon at checkout!!

Well this has been my short list of items that I have/would buy from Amazon Prime Day!

Let me know what y’all think!!
