3 Ways to Style a Plain White Tee ft. My NSale Purchases

White Tee // Loafers // Bag

One way I love styling a PWT is with more white! White jeans, white skirt, white shorts. It's so crisp and clean looking, (until salsa falls off your chip and lands right on you), but is also very flattering on most. I like to offset the double white with a jean jacket, either on or around my waist. This would also look good with a chambray button up as well. When styling my white top with white jeans, I picked a pair that was different and fun! The flares at the bottom of the jeans add a little more character to this look. My loafers and bag are two purchases from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. These loafers are seriously so comfortable, and I usually don't find any kind of flats "comfortable". What I love is how versatile they are. I could pair these with work pants or I could throw on my fave pair of hole-y jeans and they'd still look great! I sized up half a size and they fit perfectly. Now, THIS BAG *insert heart eye emoji*!! It is such a beautiful bag and is the perfect size. The only color left right now is French Gray but it is just as beautiful as this one. It would also be a great color for fall and winter. Well, any season really!

White Tee // Cardigan (sold out) This one comes in 7 colors! // Booties // Shorts

This is a great transitional look into fall. You can start the day with a white tee and shorts and then add a cardi in the evening. It's easy, functional and looks great. I also think all these colors really compliment each other and are perfect for the fall season! I've talked about this before on my blog, but white and denim are my favorite combo. It's like they were made for each other haha! So that's why I love pairing a white tee with denim shorts or jeans. Add some cute earrings and grab your favorite cardigan and you're good to go! 

Leggings  // White Tee // Shoes

Now for a more casual look! This is a great errand-running, hanging out type of look. These leggings are another NSale purchase and they. are. so. comfy. Probably my favorite pair of leggings I own! I also have a few other pairs from this brand and I love them more than any other pair I own. Plus they're only $35 right now?! If you buy anything during this sale, buy these. I do want to say, I've seen a lot of people say they think they are better than Lululemon. I think they are very comparable to Lululemon except Lulu might be a liiiitle more form fitting. What makes these better is the price! I wear a size small for reference.

The NSale sale ends August 4th, so you still have time to shop!

Have a great weekend :)

How I Styled My JORD Wood Watch + Giveaway

Top // Watch // Shorts

Happy Wednesday! 

Summer is in full swing and I have been searching for new accessories that fit my style and are also very versatile. Im super simple when it comes to jewelry, especially what I pick to wear on my arms. You'll usually never see me wearing multiple bracelets are anything that makes a huge "statement". This  JORD Wood Watch fits my style perfectly and would work with almost any outfit. Casual wear or even work wear, this watch seriously looks good with almost anything. I chose the Fieldcrest Maple Watch because it looks so timeless and the coloring is perfect for summer. I styled my watch with this white cami and flowy shorts for a night of margs and guac!

The Must-Have Top for Fall

Top: herehere and here // Jeans: Zara // Shoes (on sale) // Similar Earrings here and here

Happy, happy Monday everyone! This post is coming a few days later than I had planned but hey, sometimes just enjoying life and being in the moment is more important. I went home this past weekend and hung out with my family Saturday morning, then spent the rest of the weekend out on the lake with my boyfriend and friends! That's what's so great about blogging. If I want to take the day off, I can. If I want to focus my time on being with family and friends, I can. And so, that's what I did! And it's important that y'all do the same. Take time for yourself, put away the distractions, and just live in the moment! You'll be glad you did.

So if you couldn't tell from the title of this post, I think this top is the MUST-HAVE top of fall. Hands down. It's so unique and flattering, that when I saw it, I had to grab it. I styled it with light-wash jeans and added pops of black. When it comes to fashion, anything white, black or denim are my go-to. I think they look clean and crisp, and even better styled together. These black ankle-strap sandals are literally so cute too. The toe strap is so detailed. Instead of being just a simple suede strap, it has a tassel detail and braid! I'm telling you, you need these. They are extremely versatile and look great on. And they're on sale so even better!

I hope everyone has a great week! It's a new day and a new week, and nothing can hold you back from accomplishing your goals.

Gingham Skirt Outfit

Bandana (sold out) similar here // Low Top Converse

Happy Monday everyone! Wait, did I just put "happy" and "Monday" in the same sentence? Yup. I did. That's because I don't look at Monday as the end to the weekend, or "ugh I have to go back to work". Monday means the start of a new week. The start of new opportunities, new attitude, new experiences and even new beginnings for some. It's a chance to do better. Didn't get in all your workouts last week? Maybe you didn't finish everything on your to-do list. Well Monday brings a new week for you to do better! So take on this Monday and everyday this week with a positive attitude! You'll be amazed at what it can do. 

Now... onto the cutest little skirt in my freaking life! This little number stole my heart and I had to have it right when I saw it. Gingham pattern is a hot trend right now and I gotta say, I'm diggin' it. What I love about this look in particular is how cute but casual it is. My favorite way to wear this skirt is with a tee and some chucks. By the way, this white tee is my all time favorite PWT and it's only $17. I added this cute bandana for a little pop of color plus they're so fun to wear! 

I would love to hear suggestions for future posts! Shoot me a DM on Instagram or an email with the type of content you'd like to see!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm a little late in the game here, but tomorrow is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, a.k.a. one of the biggest, and best sales of the year! So I have decided to sum up the sale for y'all. 

When does it start?
The sale opens TOMORROW for Nordstrom Credit/Debit card holders and Nordstrom Store card holders. This is called Early Access and goes from July 13-20. It opens up to the public on July 21st and ends August 6th. You can apply here for a card! 

What's the big deal? 
This sale is different from most sales. This is when Nordstrom releases all their new fall merchandise at discounted prices. No more waiting for your favorite piece to go on sale with hopes they still have your size, this sale has all brand new items and is fully stocked! It even includes some big name designers. 

How do you shop? 
You can shop the sale either online or in-store. I'll be doing my shopping from the comfort of my bed.  It's also important to go in with a plan and even a budget. I sat down and made of list of things I needed (jeans, new running shoes, cardis) and things that I wanted. That way I'm not just going into the sale and adding everything I like to my shopping cart. I use this sale to buy pieces I can wear all time and pieces that might be a little more pricey. 

Where can we see your picks? 
I will be updating THIS blog post with items I get from the sale. I'll also be shopping over the course of the sale and not just during the Early Access! So I'll be able to update y'all on what's still available! 

Happy Shopping!
