Things I’m Loving, Vol. 4

I know my blogging has been a bit random lately, but I kinda like it this way. Keeps things interesting, right? Just kidding. I’m trying to make these post regular and I’m thinking I should try to switch to 2-3 times per week rather than try to get 5 posts up. Thoughts?

Also, I’ve been paying a lot more attention to my Instagram account and would love for you to follow me over there! I love posting random bits from our life and keeping track of how much Finn has grown by scrolling through the photos. One last thing, next month will be the anniversary of my blog and I’ve been wondering how to celebrate. A giveaway? A contest of some sort? Let me know if you have any good ideas.

For now, here are some thing I’m loving!

 

Things I’m Loving:

Women's dv Roselyn Suede High Top Sneakers

 

Slip-on Sneakers

I just bought a pair of slip-on sneakers and I’m seriously considering returning them for these. Then again, these are under $40 and I do have a use for both pairs… These are from Target, too! They have the best shoes selection right now.

abercrombie hENLEY DRESS

 

 

Henley Dress

Seriously. I think I recommend something from Abercrombie to someone daily, but they are seriously killing it. I browse their sale section regularly, and always find something I love. This little dress is absolutely perfect for fall… perhaps with the boots I listed below? I love the button detail, the color, and the price cannot be beat! Currently under $20!

halogen tie bell sleeve sweater

 

Halogen Tie Bell Sleeve Sweater

The bow detail on this sweater is seriously the cutest. I love the length as well. This looks like it has Erica written all over it!

Shop

 

 

 

 

over the knee boots

 

Over-the-knee Boots

I’m sure if you follow any fashion blogger they post about this pair of extremely overpriced OTK boots. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a spare $700 to spend on shoes. This pair from DSW is a bit more reasonable. Pro tip: if you were blessed with big calfs due to years of playing soccer (like me) I’d try these on before you purchase. Might have to order the wide calf option!

Petite Women's Caslon High-Low V-Neck Sweater

 

Striped High-Low Sweater

I never met a stripe I didn’t like – especially black and white – and especially in sweater form.

Happy long weekend! I’ve rounded up some of the best Labor Day Weekend sales for you. No better time to stock up on staples and fall cardigans than now! Be sure to check back throughout the weekend as I update the list. Happy Shopping!

 

Abercrombie & Fitch

Shop

Why am I getting sucked back into the A&F stuff? Didn’t I grow out of this years ago? Abercrombie is making a huge comeback and I scour their site pretty much daily. They are killing it right now with their basics, and this Labor Day weekend everything is 40% off. You saw me wearing this midi-dress (and I just ordered it in gray), I’m also dying over this pull-over (only $40 right now!), and this cozy sweater. If you haven’t checked out Abercrombie since you were 15, I’m officially telling you that it’s okay to do so now.

Loft

Shop

Everything is 30% off right now with sale styles an additional 50% off. Stock up on your workwear and basics. Loft is so good at transitional clothing. Grab it all right now!

Nordstrom

Shop

Nordstrom recently just marked down a bunch of their Anniversary Sale items again. So if you didn’t get them the first time around, cause we all know those things sell like hot cakes, grab them now. This basic tee is under $15, the ever popular Free People sweater is under $60, and a bunch of Zella workout wear is marked down as well.

American Eagle

Shop

Another throwback to your teen years, but AE jeans are the best jeans for the price tag. Currently all jeans are 25% off and the entire site is marked down 25-60%.

J.Crew

Shop

Everything at J.Crew is 30% off this weekend. There’s nothing better than a J.Crew sweater and their dress pants are some of the best I’ve ever bought. J.Crew is quality, so 30% is huge. Use the code YESPLEASE.

J.Crew Factory

J.Crew Factory has marked everything down 50%, with an additional 50% off clearance. Use the code DELISH.

Happy Shopping!

Fall is in the air! I wore a sweater yesterday, and I actually needed it. It makes me so excited for Pumpkin flavored coffee, football season, and watching Finn play in the leaves! I’ve been browsing my favorite stores for new arrivals and recent markdowns of some of my faves and found some real goodies for this week’s Things I’m Loving. If you missed yesterday’s post, apparently Abercrombie is making a comeback and they’ve got some really, really good stuff – several things I’ve included in this post.

Things I’m Loving:

women's patterned sweatshirt

 

Patterned Sweatshirt

The pattern on this sweatshirt is so sweet, and knowing it’s probably so incredibly warm and cozy makes it even sweeter. I love a good crewneck sweatshirt, especially one I could potentially pull off at work!

Shop

 

 

 

 

poplin peplum top

 

 

Peplum Dress Top

I just bought this cutie for under $20! It’s a perfect work shirt, plus I bought it a little oversized to be worn with dark jeans for date nights.

Shop

 

 

 

 

 

Steve Madden Slip On Sneaker

 

Steve Madden Slip On Sneaker

What don’t I love about these? The color is great, the price is awesome, and they are Steve Madden, so you know they are great quality! Plus they come in numerous colors. Take your pick!

Adorable. Layer-able. Great color.

Ruffle Tee

This classic tee is now under $30! It comes in a bunch of colors, but they haven’t been marked down… yet. I’ve heard this tee is one of the best ones of the summer, so I may have to snag it. I love the ruffle detail!

Another sweatshirt I can wear to work? What is happening? Why is this so darn cute?

Mom Wardrobe Must-Have

I have a confession – I think way too much about if my outfit for the day is appropriate for being a mom. Finn is at the age of wanting to be up and then down again, and I spend the majority of my time bending over or sitting on the ground with him. I started transitioning my clothing out of the ‘short-shorts’ genre soon after I graduated college and hit the professional world. However, being a mom is a whole new ball game.

abercrombie & fitch striped midi-dress

When I bought my first midi-skirt soon after Finn was born, I bought it more for the flow and its ability to hide the baby weight. But I soon fell in the love with the length and my love for midi-skirts/dresses was born. At one point I thought my legs were too short for the midi-length, but it actually makes me look (or at least feel as though I look) taller.

The best part? I can bend over and not give everyone else at the playground a show! This midi-dress is from Abercrombie & Fitch, cause apparently they are making a comeback?! Who knew. I really can’t complain. This dress is the perfect length, under $30 and is super comfortable and soft. It will also make a perfect maternity dress for the next go-round since it’s long enough and stretchy enough to grow with a bump.

I’ve linked some more midi-dresses below since they are the perfect transitional piece into fall. Add a long cardigan and some booties, you’ve got yourself a Pinterest-worthy outfit. (PS. Shameless plug, if you don’t follow me on Pinterest yet, you totally should. I pin some awesome crap and we all know it’s the best way to waste an hour – or a morning.) Happy shopping, moms!

Mamas, what’s your go-to outfit and why?

Things I’m Loving – Vol. 2

Happy Monday! Long story short, I’ve been neglecting this blog out of pure depression – we lost another house that we put an offer in on, and I’m just feeling sad about it! I know – it wasn’t meant to be! But I was already decorating the rooms in this house and imagining our little family living inside of it. On top of that, life and Charlottesville has gone a little nuts lately, but more on that in tomorrow’s post. Today, we are online shopping!

Things I’m Loving

Aerie Padded Bralette

I know I included the bralette in the last Things I’m Loving post, but I just bought this padded bralette and it’s the best! So comfy and currently buy one get one free! If you haven’t bought one yet, you’re missing out!

AEO DENIM X SUPER HI-RISE JEGGING

 

American Eagle High Rise Jegging

I’ve recently converted back to American Eagle jeans, and the quality and style made me question why I ever gave up on them. They are currently running a killer deal on all jeans/pants at AE, so run and grab a few!

Shop

 

 

 

Ruffle Sleeve T-Shirt Dress

 

 

Ruffle Sleeve T-Shirt Dress

Currently regretting not grabbing this cutie at the Nordstrom Sale, but it’s still under $40, so I think I need it! It comes in black and gray, too, which would be perfect for transitioning into fall.

Shop

 

 

Mélange Body-Con Dress

 

Mélange Body-Con Dress

I think running around with Finn has made me a lover of all midi-dresses. The length is perfect for chasing around toddlers and the inevitable public diaper change. Currently stocking up!

Ruched Body-Con Tank Dress

 

Ruched Body-Con Tank Dress

Perhaps the most popular dress in fashion blogger history, I think I’m finally pulling the trigger on this one. It looks great on every body type and is ruched in all the right places! It can be dressed up and down. Definitely going to get my monies worth out of this one!
