BACK IN STOCK
This is a picture from last year, but I’m so excited to let you know that one of my very favorite blouses EVER is BACK IN STOCK!
This leopard button up is fabulous. I’ve featured silky leopard tops before, but this was the first time I featured a cotton voile. It’s 100% cotton and very lightweight. And get this….it doesn’t seem to wrinkle!
I of course love it here with black jeans, but it also looks great with regular denim and white denim as well! I’m wearing it pretty casually here, but it could be dressed up very easily too. It will look great with black ankle work pants and think how cute it would be with a pencil skirt!
As I mentioned before, it’s lightweight, so I will wear this blouse all the way into summer. But here’s the deal, I actually consider it a year round shirt because it will be awesome under a blazer or leather jacket too!
If you’re on instagram, you might have heard me talking about Kendra Days yesterday on stories. If not, listen up because this promotion is AWESOME! (My stories will be live until about 3:30 p.m. on Friday, so you can still hop over to see them if you didn’t catch them yesterday.)
Between now and 10/18, Kendra Scott is running a really cool program that they’ve never done before.
Here’s what going down: For every $75 you spend, you will get $20 in Kendra Cash (up to $100). SERIOUSLY! You can earn Kendra Cash between now and 10/18, and it will show up in your e-mail inbox 11/6! It’s THAT EASY! And on top of that, with a $75 purchase you will get the cool jewelry roll that you see below as well.
Click HERE to shop, earn some cash, and get an adorable little jewelry roll that’s perfect for travel! My favorite earrings from her new collection are $78, so you would immediately qualify for the $20 Kendra cash and the jewelry roll! #doneanddone I have them in vintage gold and love them so much. Click HERE to see me wearing them in the whole post.
To give you a reminder, here are my pieces from Kendra’s newest collection. Aren’t they so pretty?!?
And check this out! Kendra now has complimentary engraving for Sterling Silver & 18k Gold Vermeil. Just choose a meaningful initial, date, or phrase – and they’ll do the rest. Click HERE!
A NEW FAVORITE OUTFIT COMBO
You can get much more basic than this outfit…but it’s basic with a little bit of edge…and I like it.
I’m wearing a medium in the tee and my regular size 4 in the jeans (but size down if between sizes).
And as you can see below, you can build upon the above “basic” outfit very easily. Here, all I did was throw a camel colored cardigan on top.
Does this cardigan look familiar? I highlighted it on my Adorable and Affordable Sweaters collage for Nordstrom Rack a couple of weeks ago. I love the open styling and the windowpane pattern. And you know I often gravitate towards camel colored sweaters. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
MORE AWESOME AMAZON FINDS!
I know we had Prime Day earlier this week, but I have some more really great Amazon finds for you today.
The 7/8 leggings are AWESOME. They are super high waisted, and they suck you in while still allowing you to breathe. They are very flattering (no sagging with wear), and they wash beautifully without fading. These leggings are LEGIT. For size reference, I’m wearing a small in the leggings.
And I can’t recommend the sneakers enough. Size down a 1/2, and be prepared to be amazed at their comfort. (Sidenote: The leggings look weird because I actually had my full length leggings on here since my favorite 7/8 leggings were in the wash. That’s why they look like they have a cuff. I have to turn them under to make them the right length.)
For size reference, I’m wearing a small, but it’s way too small. I definitely need a medium.
Okay, how cute is this bronze puffer jacket?!?
I love the color, I love the relaxed fit (kinda boxy), and I love the collar. And get this, it’s machine washable!
For size reference, I’m wearing a medium and it’s VERY roomy. I think a small would be better and still give me some room to move. It comes in black too, but I personally prefer the look of the bronze much more.
And now I want to move on from athleisure to this great little jacket.
It’s an incredible deal at ONLY $39 and it’s DARLING. It’s 98% cotton and 2% elastane, giving it a great amount of stretch. The fit is awesome, and as always, I love the stand up collar.
For size reference, I’m wearing a 6. This is often true to size for me in a jacket like this.
And do y’all remember this sweater from last year? It’s BACK baby! In sooo many colors! Its a favorite of mine that I wore a ton last year. I wore it so much in fact, that I just grabbed the khaki too. I’m wearing a small, and it’s still a very relaxed fit. It’s so soft, and I love it’s swingy shape.
Also, adding this to the post on Friday afternoon at 4:00 because I’m pretty sure I’ve never added anything to cart SO FAST! SO FREAKING CUTE! Click HERE.

Click HERE to head to the blog post where I thoroughly reviewed some new favorite products. The CC Cream was my top pick from the post. It’s fantastic and I’m just sad it took me so long to try it.
TRADER JOE’S HAUL
I went to Trader Joe’s earlier this week, stocked up on some old favorites, and tried some new things that I now love!
The roasted vegetables, Caprese ravioli, and Bruschetta sauce were new (to me at least) and all EXCELLENT.
Here’s a close up of the roasted veggies! They make a perfect side dish to just about everything.
I didn’t love the roasted squash in this salad, but the rest was so yummy. I divided in two and ate it for a side with 2 different lunches.
And y’all! I haven’t had fresh figs in I can’t tell you how long…maybe ever? But I tried these and LOVED them.
I’ve had some DMs this week asking for my Hello Fresh code! You can click HERE to get $40 OFF. We are still loving it and really having fun with our new meals. Our favorite meal this week was the Pork Flautas with Lime Crema. YUM.
THESE SLIP ON SNEAKERS ARE FANTASTIC and 40% OFF. They’ve got a tiny bit of a platform, are extremely comfortable, and they don’t slip off at all when walking. True to size for me.
Most sneakers like these that I’ve tried in the past tend to be a little too clunky for my taste, but not these! They have a slim profile and look very feminine. I went for the camo (even though it’s a darker camo than I wouldn’t typically go for), but the “black” and the “pavement” are great options too and I love the texture on the solid colors.
LOFT is 40% OFF of tons of great Fall fashions right now. I’m loving this striped poncho and I’m pumped that Lou and Grey now has a leopard jogger set option (click HERE for the top). And I’m going to get this ruffle short sleeved sweater in the rust color.
This rainbow stitch sweater is soooooooo soft and totally darling. And right now it’s $20 OFF and then an additional 40% OFF! It has excellent reviews, and I think it looks very much like a sweater you would see at Anthro (for like 3 times the price)!
It’s boxy, but that’s the style! For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
Lots of Hunter Boots are ON SALE at Nordstrom Rack.
Anthropologie is 25% OFF EVERYTHING today with FREE SHIPPING! Discount immediately applied at checkout.
I LOVE AND ADORE THIS BLOUSE.
In fact, it might be one of my favorite tops I have ever put on my body. I love the colors, I love the pattern, I love the swingy fit, and I love the pleated and lace details. The top is GORGEOUS and worth EVERY DANG PENNY. I think it would also be great with some black coated denim and heels to for a night on the town!
Seriously. It’s STUNNING.
For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
I ordered these Skecher’s ballet flats Tuesday and was reallllllllllllly hoping these would already be in so I could give you a review, but I’m going to drop them here again because they are STILL ON SALE!
Even though I haven’t received them yet, I got several comments from readers that already have them that were super complimentary, so I feel confident that they are going to be awesome.
I am in love with these shoes and wear them all day everyday! They dress up my boring black scrubs and they machine wash like a charm! – Janelle
I own these. They are the comfiest flats in my closet! – Danielle
One of the most comfy pair of shoes I own. – Tammy
WEEK IN REVIEW
I posted links to my posts earlier in the week in one of my last Friday Favorites, and I got some really good feedback from people who said they liked a review in case they missed something.
So here’s your review for this week!
On Monday’s post…
If you missed Monday’s post, click HERE for it. I review these sneakers (spoiler alert: I’m OBSESSED) and show lots of outfits with denim shorts and the sneakers. I think my favorite top would have to be the Happy Camper long sleeve tee.
On Tuesday’s post…
Tuesday’s post was all about Amazon Prime Day! Now, Prime Day is no longer going on, but there are still incredible deals to be had on that post if you want to take a peek.
On Thursday’s post…
Did you see my Colleen Rothschild post yesterday? Colleen herself answered all of our skincare questions! It’s an AWESOME post, and I really hope you hop over there to see it. We all need to be taking really great care of our skin, and she breaks it down for us with some simple answers to our questions.
And it’s a great time to pick up a product or two, because the entire site is 25% OFF.
Here’s just 1 question from yesterday:
Question: Older skin, but oily, not dry!!!! Lots of acne. Help! @mrsbethlkaiser
Answer: Add in a face oil. Customers with oily skin will gasp at the thought of adding oil, but then come back to write a review or share a testimonial on how wonderfully nourished, glowing and CLEAR their skin is looking. Try it – you won’t regret it! Our Face Oil No. 9 is a great option.
All right. That’s a wrap, ladies!
Have a wonderful weekend with your people!
