Hey y’all!! I hope this week has treated you well! It seems like we’ve had a really busy few weeks over here, so I’m ready for some relaxation at the beach this weekend!!! If I’m totally keeping it real though, it’s more like… frantically “getting in some extra cardio”aka chasing our two-year old son around like we all need straight jackets or an exorcism! He is fearless at the beach, well everywhere, and although I let him do his thing, it still makes me nervous! I wouldn’t have it any other way though, I’m absolutely enthralled with seeing how every new experience/adventure opens a whole new world to him! We may end up running a few extra miles this weekend, but what can I say? He keeps us young! (and then wine keeps us sane! Can I get an AMEN?!😜)
I wanted to share an Instagram roundup of my outfit posts from this week with quick links to shop! The tassels and fringe were out to play… this trend has been big with me! To say I’m obsessed is an understatement! Each of these outfits would make a great casual date night look (or day date), or maybe even a happy hour with your girlfriends! Hey girl hey! 👯 AND almost everything listed below is under $50!
Look 1: I’m obsessed with flare denim. SO happy this style made a comeback- let’s all time travel to the 90s! *cue the “My So Called Life” theme song* I purchased this particular pair from one of my favorite local boutiques ( Teal) in January, so they don’t have this exact style currently in stock, BUT I’ve got you covered. I’ve linked a similar one from Teal, plus several others in super light, dark, and white denim! Give me ALL THE FLARES! I’ve styled this look with a blush and gold statement necklace. I have a feeling it’ll be in heavy rotation. It’s very unique- and only $15! This blouse is flowy and so pretty- available in several different colors/prints! All linked below.
- Chiffon Cami Top-H&M
- Blush and gold tassel necklace-H&M
- Mandy Flare Jeans- Teal
- Stretch denim flares-Nordstrom
- Flares- darker denim and white-H&M
- Brown strap wedge espadrilles-American Eagle
- Calf Hair clutch-Abercrombie (I could only find on eBay!?) Here’s another option: Leopard Foldover Clutch / Leopard Foldover Clutch Option 2 OR if you wanna be a baller and drop some serious cash: Claire V Foldover Clutch
Look 2: It’s hard to tell, but this dress has a high/low hem, and you have to feel it to believe just how soft it is!! It’s incredibly comfy- think pajama level soft. These tassel earrings are from Versona and you can find them in stores (unavailable online! Don’t hate me!) I’ve linked two similar styles in case you don’t have a local store!
- Viscose Dress-H&M
- Olivia Suede Espadrille Wedge-Kenneth Cole
- Ivory Tassel Earrings Option 1
- Ivory Tassel Earrings Option 2
- Neutral crossbody- Zara
Look 3: Denim on denim is a trend that I’ve been wanting to try for a while. Results: Me likey! This look is super casual with the slide on sneakers (got these from Banana Republic but linked similar pairs), but you could easily wear wedges or lace up heels with this for an instant vamp up! Totally a guy’s girl type of look- my husband was bout it bout it! 😍 This fringe necklace is from Versona (available in stores!) Check your local store! I linked my original inspiration necklace from Betsy Pittard Designs- it’s very colorful and whimsy-you may like it, too!
- Chambray shirt-Old Navy
- Denim cuffed shorts-H&M
- Slip on sneakers- Old Navy
- Option 2 for slip-on sneakers- Old Navy
- Betsy Pittard Designs- The Rach
This fringe tee (available in two colors) is on sale for $11- YES! $11! The BP crossbody from Nordstrom has been a staple of mine since last fall- it’s $32 and also comes in two colors. These pants are much lighter in person- more of a light olive-green. I got them from Old Navy last fall and have linked similar styles below. The shoes are by far my favorite part of this look though! They’re so well made, stylish, and comfortable. Comfort is key for my poor retired ballerina feet!
- Fringe tee-Old Navy
- Olive Pixie Chinos- Old Navy
- Olive shorts-Old Navy
- Soludos Espadrilles-Urban Outfitters
- Several chevron necklace options-BaubleBar
- BP Crossbody Bag- Nordstrom
And when I couldn’t possibly think I could add any more tassels in my life, I purchased this little beauty from Target for $20! 👌 Merona Embellished Pouch I love the embellishments, colors, and beading! Perfect fun summer pouch/clutch!
