Happy Tuesday everyone! Wow! I have been busy getting things ready for our furniture to be delivered, babysitting little Brooklyn, and the most important thing….shopping for new decor for our home HA! Who knew this was going to be such a time consuming project! I know when it is all over, it will be worth all this hustle and bustle…but the getting to the finish line…UGG!!!
While browsing around at Target this past weekend, I found this cute as a button Elbow Sleeve Popover V-Neck Blouse. I’m going to post a picture of how Target styled it and how I decided to style it. I am not much on tying a blow, so I poted to wear it as a V-neck with a loose knot. How would you style this?
I liked my sleeves pushed up a little, it looks almost like a short sleeve blouse and I paired it as a casual look with my favorite jeans from American Eagle. I probably would have worn this out with a black belt, but opted for my cognac belt today. I decided to wear Ankle Strap Block Kitten Heels.
Next up is a look I really liked! I paired it with my YMI raw hemmed jeans from Belk and the black GG replica belt. I know a lot of people will spend the $450 or $350 for a real Gucci belt, but I am not one of them! I can’t justify spending that kind of money at my age on a belt. Have I before? Yes…but I have lived and learned! I am wearing my all-time favorite chunky MVE heels – they are MORE versatile than you will ever know! They wear great, they are inexpensive and they are perfect for transitioning into Fall. I even wear them in the Winter!
This was my favorite out of the 5 outfits! I love my Crown & Ivy Colored Denim Skinny Jeans – I have gotten my wear out of these this Summer! I swapped up my shoes and added the best pair of everyday sandals I have! The Steve Madden Jewel, these have been the Most Popular Sandal on my blog and ALL social media outlets! These have been a WIN for me this Summer! I am planning a post of the Win’s and Fail’s of the SUmmer soon, what I wore a lot and what sat in my closet…this will be interesting!
I styled this skirt last week 3 different ways, see it HERE, and it was such a HUGE hit on Pinterest, it is back in this post! This would look much more business if I wore red pumps to throw a splash of color, or added a red cropped blazer. There are so many options with this top and I love it!! Since I am a casual and a trendy girl, I wanted to show that you can wear this loose and casual also – even with a denim jacket for a great Fall outfit. Remember, sleeves can be pushed up or pulled down to the elbows for different looks.
What I actually ended up wearing for the day? My Amazon Essential Linen Drawstring 5-inch shorts with my Vince Camuto Espadrilles. This was a comfortable, but put together look (I think so anyway lol). Who doesn’t like casual when you’re babysitting a 4-year old??!!
I had a lot of fun trying on different bottoms for this post. I wish I had added workwear pants or a skirt – I will be better in the future and add those also. Even if you are a stay-at-home wife or mom, we still go to church and outings and this could give you some outfit inspiration too!
Sneak Peek of New Home Decor
I wanted to share a few great finds, I found for our home while out shopping this week. This white lantern was only $7.50 at Big Lots, this is considered an outdoors lantern, but..hey…who can really tell the difference. If you don’t like the rope, just remove it and you have a cute item for your dining room or living room centerpiece. I am using 2 of these (one sits on an older candle holder that I whitewashed) on my hearth. The tray was also at Big Lots for only $12.00, I could not find it online, but found a similar one. These are the cheapest items that I have found (including looking on Amazon) for newer home decor. The rattan balls and the small succulents also came from Big Lots. Links are below the picture. To see what they have in Farmhouse Decor click HERE.
I found this 2-tier cake tray at Target this past weekend and I absolutely love it!! Find it HERE (it’s only $32.99). I added some trinkets and a handmade cupcake my mother made. If anyone is interested in how to make the cupcakes, donuts, etc., let me know! My mom would love to do a video and show everyone!! The glass Hydrangea & Rose flowers with “water” is from Wayfair, find it HERE. These have been a fan favorite on LiketoKnow.it! The Blessed pumpkin came from Big Lots, it is a picture holder, but I removed the wire to hole a picture and used it as regular decor. It was not online, but it is a new product, when they add it online I will update you girls. “It’s really cute!!”
One item that I am really loving is this flower arrangement in the tin can. I found this on Amazon for only $20.99, there are a few other options if these colors are not your thing. See them HERE. Y
Thursday most of our furniture will be here, but we haven’t scheduled the flooring yet. Hopefully, our new countertops will be in within a week or so and I may be through with this part of the house LOL!! Next I am moving to the guest bathroom – that won’t take that long!
Thanks for stopping by the blog, sorry I have been busy with all this partial facelift” of our home – it has really thrown me off my game! What are you girls up to? Which outfit did you like the best? Can’t wait to hear what you girls think!
