My New Favorite Sweater + Hello Monday Linkup

1 comment:
Psst!  Right now Banana Republic is 50% off and oh my did I do some shopping!  With the transition to an actual business casual environment, I've been stocking up on pencil skirts, skinny trousers, and some nicer tops.  Among all my finds was this sweater (which I have now ordered in multiple colors🙈) and it is SO good.  It's a super dreamy blend of silk and cashmere, yet very lightweight and breathable.  I have a few half-sleeve sweaters this same blend from this Summer so when I saw the long-sleeve version come out for Fall, I was thrilled.  It comes in a ton of other colors and v-neck and a cardigan version too.

News + Hello Monday Linkup

Hello blog friends!

I can finally let the cat out of the bag- I'm starting a new job soon!  It's been in the works for a couple months, so it's very exciting to finally be able to chat about it.  I'm transitioning from integrations to data & analytics.  I'm also switching to a real business casual environment.  My current gig describes the dress code as business casual, but flip-flops, jeans, and t-shirts are totally acceptable.  While I'm partially excited, I'll miss having the option to show up in Birks and destructed boyfriend jeans 🙈.  I'll also miss my coworkers.  Many of my coworkers have also become dear friends, and I will really miss seeing them on the daily.  

As soon as I accepted the offer, I start shopping for a few more business casual staples (no jeans! the travesty!)  I'd been eyeing this blazer at Ann Taylor, and it was an additional 50% off (and is actually an even better deal now!).  So I picked up the blazer and skirt on a whim, and I actually really like them together!  Plus how cute will the skirt be with maroon tights in the winter?

My #Nsale Impulse Buy + Hello Monday Linkup

A couple weeks ago, I stopped by Nordstrom to shop the Anniversary Sale.  I'd browsed online, but there was nothing I had to have.  Or so I thought.

As I made my way through the various departments, I stumbled upon this dreamy Vince cashmere cardigan.  Vince and cashmere independently are my weaknesses, so the combination was irresistible.  It was definitely a splurge, but I know it will get a ton of wear this Fall and Winter.  How cute will it be belted over a dress with booties or with a button down and skinny pants?  Plus the color is extraordinarily versatile.

Speaking of the Anniversary Sale, I also tried on these boyfriend jeans while I was there.  I loved the finish of them, but the waist had a giant gap in the back while the hips were pretty fitted, so I ultimately passed.  I ended up ordering this pair for a fraction of the cost instead, and I'm obsessed!  They have a great high-waist, are super comfortable, and have the perfect destructed details.  The other day my co-worker called them 'mom jeans', but I'm just gonna let that one slide ;)

Floral Blazer & Hello Monday Linkup

Good morning, friends!  How is it almost August!?  The weather's still toasty, but all the Fall styles are coming out (what?!).  This jacket strikes the perfect balance.  I broke my no-3/4-sleeves-rule (yes, a real thing) because I absolutely loved the cute fringe trim and the pattern.  It pairs equally cute with jeans as it does trousers (I wore it with these amazing $25 red pants the other day).
