Can you believe we are already at the end of July?! It seems like summer is just flying by this year. So, in the blink of an eye, it’s time for my monthly favorites post! If you see something you like, I’ve made it easy for you to steal my style with links for each item, as well as some similar styles at different price points. If you want to check out last month’s post, you can find it here.
Look #1: Printed Tank & Coral Jeans
The Printed Tank
I received this top – the Daniel Rainn Greta Geo Print Tank – in my July 2014 Stitch Fix and immediately loved the mix of the black eyelet and the print. The only thing I didn’t like was that the teensy tiny buttons kept slipping out of the button holes, so I took 5 minutes and sewed them up so I wouldn’t accidentally flash anyone!
Unfortunately, I can’t find this exact top anywhere since it’s a year old and my old faithful of Nordstrom Rack is looking a little bare in their Daniel Rainn tops. However, this similar styled tank top from Anthropologie is a little pricy, but so beautiful. I also really like this Racerback Cami from Old Navy, which is much more reasonably priced.
These coral jeans were another Stitch Fix find (from my April 2015 Fix) and I’ve only recently pulled them out of my closet to wear them. They are awfully fitted, so I paired them with the flowy top to keep the outfit more in my comfort zone. I think these Mavi jeans may be the ones I have and they are currently on sale at Nordstrom. These NYDY jeans from Nordstrom are almost identical looking and cost less.
Here are my workhorse Sam Edelman sandals again… I got them a few years ago and they are still as comfortable and look as great as when I first put them on. Here’s a version that is a little more simple, but still awfully darn sassy. I also finally pulled the trigger and bought these in silver, and wore them all over NYC when I was there earlier this month.
Look #2: Pink Dress
I first saw this dress pinned on the Stitch Fix board and immediately I knew I wanted it. So, when I saw it turn up on a random search of the TJ Maxx website (did you KNOW they have a website?!) I immediately ordered it and crossed my fingers that it fit as well in reality as it did in my head. I never thought I could pull off a bright pink dress, but oh my gosh does this one make me feel amazing. It is also super comfortable and I’ve thrown in in the wash and let it hang dry. That’s a dress winner if I ever heard of one! Want to know the best part? It’s on the TJ Maxx website for $29 in sizes 4 – 14! You can find it here.
You can’t see my shoes in this picture, but you can kind of see my fantastic collection of leather wrap bracelets. I bought my first one when I visited Austin last year and couldn’t resist buying a second one as a Mother’s Day gift for myself! The larger one is the Single Jigsaw Stingray bracelet in turquoise and the thinner one is similar to this Single T-Bar bracelet in sparkle leather.
Look #3: A Showstopper Skirt
I hemmed and hawed about this fabulous striped skirt from Anthropologie and even asked my followers on Instagram and Facebook whether it was a keeper or not. It wasn’t that I didn’t love the skirt… I just never imagined myself pulling off a full circle skirt with a layer of crinoline. However, I’m so glad I kept it because it really can be totally dressed up or down.
I got my skirt on super sale during the Anthropologie Tag Sale where it was marked down from $128 to $56. Of course, at that price it sold out in an instant, but I found some other showstopper skirts at the tag sale that I also love: the Sun Palm skirt is so gorgeous and it’s ALSO on super sale from $168 down to $89.95. The Bellflower skirt is so beautiful and I can see this styled with a similar colored top for a pretty bridal shower or engagement party look. Someone please do this and send me pictures! This one was $148 and on sale for $79.95. For a more reasonably priced alternative, try this floral version from Modcloth.
The Tank & Cardigan
This tank top is another score from my Anthro Tag sale haul and comes in a ton of other colors too. It’s called the Double v-Swing Tank and I like it because there are two layers of fabric, which make the tank top a little dressier than your typical cheapo version. I’m actually tempted to buy it up in a couple more colors, but I’m doing a no-shopping-for-30-days challenge… so I’ll have to pass.
I wear this cardigan all the time, because the pretty green color goes with almost everything in my closet. It’s the the Jackie cardigan sweater in tropical forest from J.Crew.
I picked these black gladiator wedges up a year or two ago on a random T.J. Maxx trip and they are super comfortable to wear all day long. Mine are by Franco Sarto and I found two more pairs that look quite similar: the Cera wedge sandal and the Unveil wedge.
I’m trying out something new and trying one of those fancy shopping widgets that shows you images for all the items I’ve linked to. It’s kind of a pain in the butt to do… so let me know if you find it helpful! (Update: I removed the widget because it was causing issues).
