STYLE IT AGAIN, SHEAFFER
It’s very common on the blog for me to show the same article of clothing over and over (and over) again. What can I say, when I like something, it gets worn a lot. #imlookingatyoudenimjacket
I think it’s a lot of fun to show the versatility of a piece, and it’s one of my favorite things to do here on the ol’ blog. Well, today I’m taking a sweatshirt and showing you 3 different ways to wear it. I told y’all I was ordering this sweatshirt last week, and it arrived over the weekend. I love it just as much as I hoped I would, and I immediately got to styling it 3 ways.
OUTFIT #1: Y’all know I love to wear a sweatshirt and denim shorts as soon as it starts getting cooler, and the weather where I live has been perfect for this type of outfit the last couple of days. I love lounging around the house in this one. This sweatshirt is SO FALL. I love the clay and white abstract zebra print.
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium. It’s a little big across the shoulders, but I think a small would be too small across the chest.
OUTFIT #2: Outfit number two is probably the most typical way to wear a sweatshirt; with jeans and sneakers. But instead of regular ol’ sneakers, check out these leopard ones! Size down a 1/2 (more details and a close up later in the post).
Size down 1 in the raw hem crop jeans, I’m wearing a regular 2.
I’m not sure why the link has them categorized into two different colors, because they look like the same color to me. If your size isn’t available on one of the links, click on the other to see!
OUTFIT #3: And for outfit #3, I thought I would do something a little unexpected! I dressed this baby up with black distressed jeans, gold jewelry, and neutral booties. I love this look!
These black distressed jeans fit like a glove and I love that they are a little bit edgy with the distressing and the washed black coloring. I’m wearing my regular size 4. These are going to be a staple in a lot of my Fall outfits. I really like that they are going to mix things up a bit.
What’s your favorite way to style the sweatshirt: Outfit #1, #2, or #3?
TOM AND SHERI’S 30% OFF CODE!
I first shared about Tom and Sheri’s Iron In a Bottle a couple of years ago, and I still use it and absolutely love it and swear by it. AND SO MANY OF Y’ALL SWEAR BY IT NOW TOO. I actually get messages about this product pretty frequently because so many of you are now loyal fans.
If you haven’t tried it yet, I know what you’re thinking. An ironing spray? Does it really work? I used to ask the exact same questions. But the answer is that it ABSOLUTELY does work.
And I’ve got a code for you today! Use the code TOLDMETO30 for 30% OFF of orders of $50 or more! Click HERE to get to the site. Even the bundles that are already a reduced price are eligible for the additional 30% OFF. STOCK UP, ladies!
I wanted to show y’all a little of the behind the scenes magic with the spray. And since I wanted to make sure the items were good and wrinkled, I wadded them up like a boss.
After a bit I took them out of their wadded little balls, and I cannot believe I forgot to get a before picture of the wrinkled havoc I had caused! The blouse definitely needed freshening up, but the t-shirt dress was a wrinkled mess.
So how does it work?
Here’s what you do: 1) Hang up your wrinkled items. 2) Take several passes over them with the spray. 3) Tug on them a bit. 4) Be AMAZED at the wrinkle releasing power. 5) Do a Happy Dance. 6) Contemplate throwing your iron away. It’s a simple 6 step process. JK, it’s only 3 steps.
Below you see the after picture. THE WRINKLES DISAPPEAR. Y’all. THEY DISAPPEAR.
It’s a thing of wonder.
I’m telling you, this blue bottle MAKES ME SO HAPPY. And it saves me so much time. I absolutely hate ironing, and now I don’t have to!!! Retire the iron with me, y’all!
Here’s a little more about it…it’s plant-based and MADE IN THE USA!
Click HERE to order, and remember to use the code TOLDMETO30 if your order is over $50!
I’ve got a couple of more outfits for you that I wore this week.
This puff sleeve tee is so incredibly soft and it’s obviously darling. But really, it’s sooooooooooo soft. It comes in several colors and patterns, but I love this navy stripe. And although a bit unexpected, I thought it would be fun to pair it with the black distressed jeans and the leopard belt. For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the tee and my regular 4 in the jeans.
The cardigan is super soft too, and you know I think a great black cardigan is an absolute necessity in everybody’s closets. If you don’t already have one, this is a great option! I’m wearing a small in the cardi.
Do you remember on Monday when I styled the same tee and cardi with sneakers and blue denim?
And really, these leopard sneakers are FABULOUS. The neutral and rust colors come together beautifully with the leopard pattern to make a really fun Fall sneaker. And not only are they super cute, they are also super comfy! I would recommend sizing down a 1/2. I love them so much that I think I’m going to do a post next week all about sweaters and sneakers, so I’ll be giving you several styling ideas for these babies.
LEOPARD BELT OPTIONS
I’ve been showing a leopard belt from Nordstrom for the last couple of weeks, and I got this question…
Forgot to ask about the leopard belt… my oldest daughter has been longing for a leopard belt but the one listed it just a tad bit out of our price range. Have you found any that are similar but a little less expensive? Thanks! – Sandi
Great question, Sandi! I scoured Amazon, ordered this one to try for y’all, and it’s great!
Click HERE for the belt. It’s ONLY $13.99 and has incredible reviews!
I meant to show this in my Under $25 Fall Favorites post, but it somehow got left out.
This “diamond” eternity band is so delicate, so sparkly, and so gorgeous! And it’s just under $13!
Are you about out of any of your favorite Colleen products or are you itching to finally try something from her line? Well, now is the time! To celebrate her birthday, she’s offering 25% OFF SITE WIDE with the code BDAY25.
As you can see, I’m very loyal to the brand. I truly can’t imagine not using her products, and I’m just so thrilled that so many of you are now loyal users as well.
If I had to recommend only 3 products, they would be the Jumbo Radiant Cleansing Balm, The Glycolic Acid Peel Pads, and MY GOODNESS DON’T MAKE PICK A 3rd. I love so many of the products and truly see real differences with consistent use. If you’re not sure where to start, head to the “SKIN CONCERNS” tab at the top of their site and click on the problem area you would like to target (ex. blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles, hydration, etc). Read the product information and the reviews and figure out a great start place. If you’re already a Colleen lover, this is a great time to replenish some things you are low on or maybe try out a couple of things you’ve been interested in!
COZY COLLECTION LAUNCH
Gibson Look just launched the cutest cozy collection yesterday, and you can get 20% off this weekend with the code SHEAFFER20.
I love so many of the pieces (you need to check all of the cozy goodness out), but I’m going to highlight a couple of favorites today.
Look at this adorable little lounge outfit! The details are darling with the lettuce edge trim and the roped drawstrings and MY GOODNESS is it soft and cozy. This color is so pretty, but it also comes in a blush tie dye that’s amazing. I’m wearing a small in both.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the joggers.
WHAT’S COMING UP….
I’m working on 2 makeup posts that are both going to go live over the next couple of weeks!!!
One is with Nordstrom, and I’ll be talking about a handful of products that I’ve added to my arsenal to get ready for Fall. I’m so excited about this Bobbie Brown cream eye shadow stick (in Dusty Mauve) and this matte lipstick (it doesn’t transfer!) in Gemz and Roses! I’ll of course be showing everything in detail on the post, including some FAKE LASHES! I mean, I’ve never thought of myself as a fake lashes girl, but I always LOVE the way they look on others. I didn’t really want to spend the time or money to get them done professionally, so I decided to give an at home pack a whirl. They were surprisingly easy to apply, and I think they look awesome (and natural…but AMAZING).
The other makeup post is a full blown brand review of a new to me brand. I can’t wait to share everything with you!
Also…..I have a collage coming with Nordstrom Rack next week highlighting some really amazing sweaters. And when searching for items for the collage, I was powerless. Things ended up in my cart, what can I say.
So I took this pic to show you these earrings. They are really beautiful and sparkly, but I really love how they are a little bit edgy because they give the illusion of a multiple piercing.
And if you take a closer look, you might notice my lashes that I mentioned above!!! This is just a sneak peek, but don’t they look good? Totally natural (just wayyyyyyyyyy better), right?
The earrings are truly gorgeous.
SWEATER AND SNEAKERS
I’m working on a post for Monday called Sweaters and Sneakers, and it’s going to be awesome! I have 5 sweaters that I’m highlighting with 2 different pairs of sneakers, and I’m really excited about the outfits. You’ll see the pair below and you’ll see this pair that arrived earlier this week that I’m O.B.S.E.S.S.E.D. with. They are a less expensive version of a very pricey designer sneaker and I’m in love.
This striped sweater is already sold out at Nordstrom, but luckily it’s still available at Madewell! Regularly $79.50, you can get it for $41.70 right now if you sign up to be a Madewell Insider! (I signed up yesterday, and it literally took me like 12 seconds.) I love how it feels, I love how it fits, and I love the stripes. For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the sweater and a regular 4 in the jeans.
READER FAVORITES FROM LAST MONTH’S AMAZON HAUL
For those that are curious, here are the Top 3 Amazon items from August (according to readers):
- This leopard cardigan was the #1 Reader Favorite. Sooooo much feedback about it over the last couple of days, especially from people that ordered it last year and were so glad that it had been brought back and with new colors too! Click HERE to see it on me. Mine is the A-Beige, and I’m thinking about adding the silver grey. So many readers say they have it in two colors!
- This lightweight cardigan! I happen to own it it two colors. Click HERE to see it on me in both grey and mustard.
- The $16 tote (brown new style) has been mind blowing to so many of y’all. Nobody can believe that it’s so inexpensive and looks so amazing! I KNOW. I GET IT. Click HERE to see it styled in outfits.
MY VERY FAVORITE AMAZON ITEMS FROM LAST MONTH’S HAUL
- I’ve been using this black and beige bag strap like crazy! It’s $18 and so flipping cute.
- These simple gold hoops are in heavy rotation for me and the price is fantastic.
- This leopard pajama set is fabulous. I’ve already worn and washed the set countless times, and it still looks brand new.
I’VE ALREADY STARTED ORDERING FOR NEXT MONTH’S HAUL
- This super soft jaquard leopard sweater arrives on Sunday. If it’s 1/2 as awesome as I think it’s going to be, we should be all set. The reviews are wonderful.
- Who wouldn’t want an Ultra-Soft Milano Stitch Drawstring Hoodie Sweater? I know I do. It looks luxe, and I can’t wait to put it on. Again, the reviews are fantastic.
- So I know I’m jumping the gun here, but I couldn’t resist this bronze puffer jacket. I grabbed a medium, and for some reason the medium is ONLY $27 right now! The small is $72… but the medium, large, and x-large are all under $30 (at least for now). HURRY! (FYI: From what I can tell from the reviews, the black version looks cheap, but the bronze version looks great.)
- I’m telling you a bonus #4 because I’m so dang excited about these rags. Carter had to start washing his face every day (like not in the shower) because the all day mask wearing started breaking him out a bit. I bought him Cetaphil cleanser and these rags. I wanted the soap to be mild and I didn’t want the rags to be too rough on his skin. Both are awesome! He’s been washing his face for a couple of weeks now with great results!
Well, we are still cooking up a storm over here with our Hello Fresh meals. We’ve liked all of them we’ve tried so far, but a couple of favorites have emerged. We’ll talk about our favorites in just a second, but I wanted to pass on a discount code to you before we do!
If you are interested in trying Hello Fresh for yourself, click HERE to order through my code and get $40 OFF. It’s SO EASY to start and stop weeks, so don’t worry about the “subscription” part of it. I had mine paused for a lonnnnnnng time, and then with 1 push of a button we started again. Since starting again, I’ve had 7 boxes delivered, and we’ve skipped a couple of weeks. Also, I installed the app which makes seeing the upcoming meals and ordering SO EASY.
You can see here that all of the ingredients (minus the protein) come packaged together in the large paper bag. The protein comes under ice in separate bags. (Pro Tip: While cooking, I throw all of the trash back into this empty bag and then dispose of all of it at the same time.)
These were the ingredients we received for the shrimp tacos. Shrimp, limes, tomatoes, poblano peppers, onions, tortillas, sour cream, and the spice rub for the shrimp.
Y’ALL. These shrimp tacos were INCREDIBLE. They might not look like much, but we couldn’t get over how delicious they were. Chris gave them a solid 9.5, and he’s a very tough critic. Serving size was 3 tacos, but I had 2 and some leftover rice from the night before.
The shrimp was FANTASTIC. We loved these so much and will definitely order this meal every single time it pops up as an option.
We’ve liked all the burger meals too. The burgers are all different and unique, and I love that after Carter cooks them, he’s encouraged to try things he might not otherwise try. These burgers were barbecue burgers, and they had a sauteed onion and barbecue sauce topping.
Carter wasn’t sure about the topping, but we put some on the side, and he tried it and liked it!
The Red Hot Chicken was another crowd favorite.
The chicken was coated with a crunchy combo made of Monterey Jack cheese, panko bread crumbs, a Frank’s Red Hot rub, and butter. Sides were mashed potatoes and roasted green beans. YUM!
This isn’t sponsored in any way, but remember that if you click HERE to order you can get $40 OFF!!!
FLORAL RUFFLE SLEEVE BLOUSE
I put this flutter sleeve floral top in a flat lay on Monday’s post, and it created quite the buzz. Everybody fell in love, but it’s pretty pricey, so I’ll be sure to let you know when I see it go on sale! Fingers crossed it will still be available.
I MEAN, LOOK AT THIS BLOUSE!
The colors! The floral pattern! The little ruffle and pleated neck! The ruffled sleeves!
I LOVE IT ALL. I’m wearing a medium in the top because of the lack of stretch. If you don’t need room in the chest, I believe you can stick to your regular size.
First of all, my Supergoop Glow Screen is 20% off with the code FALL20. I use it every single day and will continue to all year long. It’s got SPF40 and I love it so much. Some days I wear it on it’s own, some days I use it as a primer. It gives a subtle (and non sparkly) healthy glow. It’s awesome!
This camo puff sleeve top is on SUPER SALE!
It’s not cropped, but it’s not long either. It will be best worn out, but if you have a super long torso, it will probably be shorter than you’d like. For size reference, I’m wearing a small. It’s like a sweatshirt material and cozy!
WEEK IN REVIEW
If you haven’t seen all of this week’s post, you might want to take a second to do so right now!
