Bomber Jacket | Gold Sneakers | Red Circle Bag | Bodysuit

Fall is officially here and I couldn’t be more excited to dress for cooler weather. Recently I discovered Yoox, which has a wide variety of brands and styles to choose from. Honestly when I saw that Yoox carries some really amazing designer brands like Gucci and Valentino I was immediately intrigued. Although I love to admire designer luxury items, let’s be real - I’m still a girl on a budget 99% of the time and making my dollar go far is always key. I live for a good deal, and all the Yoox items I’m wearing in today’s post are $60 or less.

I may dress up a lot for a living, but when it comes to my everyday casual look, the outfit I’m wearing in today’s post is my go-to style. It never gets THAT cold in Dallas, so a light bomber jacket like this olive green beauty is perfect. I’m such a fan of this color in the fall and when I saw it on Yoox I knew I had to have it in my closet. Recently I’ve been trying to step up my sneaker game and can we discuss how fun and unique these gold sneakers are? I’m so obsessed with them! They’re perfect for all the casual outfits I rock so often.

Another thing you can find me wearing regularly in the fall is bodysuits. I think they’re so great dressed up or down. The one I’m wearing here has the cutest square neckline, very flattering on and not see through. Lastly I had to scoop up this bright red circle bag to add to my collection. Can you believe it’s only $45? Such a great deal for this trendy bag!

If you’re looking for fall inspiration do yourself a favor and check out Yoox. I can’t wait to style all of my amazing finds with different outfits this fall! Scroll down to see the rest of my look.

Classic Work Wear with Express

2B3429D4-7A04-4B3F-9221-18FBE887D476.JPG

Skirt (Size 2) | Sweater (Small)

As some of you may know I quit my full time corporate job in April of this year. After working in that type of environment for over 6 years, I accumulated a lot of work wear pieces in my wardrobe. For me it was important to be comfortable but still show my personal style at the office. Express has always been one of my favorite places to shop for 9-5 attire. They have such a wide selection from skirts and blouses, to dress pants and more. Today I’m styling an outfit with Express that I could see myself wearing to a business meeting or any professional function.

The best advice I could give when looking for work wear is to stick with items that can be styled in many ways. For example, this window pane skirt I’m wearing could easily be paired with any other color top because it’s neutral. I think it would look great with an olive green sweater or a silky red blouse. My ribbed v neck sweater comes in a few different colors and is great for layering this fall. Sweaters like this are classic and will never go out of style. I also think a crew neck sweater is perfect for the office and would go great with skirts or dress pants. Although I’m no longer in a corporate work setting, I still dress up from time to time! Express will always be a great source to find exactly what I’m looking for when it comes to work wear.

Flashback to the 90s

Who doesn't love a fashion flashback to the 90s? When I think of popular trends during that time a few things come to mind: denim on denim, graphic tees and classic sneakers. That's just what I went for in styling this 90s inspired outfit with eBay. Honestly I feel like I channel the 90s with my personal style on a regular basis. One thing remains certain, ebay is always a great resource to find exactly what I'm looking for. From handbags, to shoes and clothes, the fashion aspect of eBay is truly on point. 

Let's face it, fashion trends always come full circle and a classic look like the one I'm styling today will never go out of style. I can't ever say no to a great pair of distressed Levis jeans. The pair I'm wearing are sold out, but I found a similar pair that are under $50! I feel like graphic tees were kind of born in the 90s. I remember being in middle school and always wanting the latest fun tees to rock at school. I wore a lot of Tommy Hilfiger tees back in the day and it's so crazy to see them come back in style decades later!

The Levis tee I'm wearing here was too cute to pass up! Not only is it perfect for summer, but also great for layering in the fall! Speaking of layering, can we talk about how fabulous this sherpa denim jacket is? eBay has so many great styles of denim jackets to choose from, but this one is a must have! I can't wait to rock it with boots this fall!

We all know cat eye sunglasses are on trend right now, but I first saw these as a kid watching clueless. Talk about goals, didn't every girl want to be just like Cher? I know I did, so naturally channeling this 90s look was so much fun and reminded me of one of my favorite movies! I'm a huge fan of classic white sneakers and Nike has always been one of my favorite brands. I wear these Nike classic Cortez sneakers with all sorts of outfits, especially jeans. The shoes definitely complete this 90s outfit and are a staple in my wardrobe.

the perfect summer dress with Stage

Dress | ShoesBag 

How crazy is it that summer is almost over? I honestly can't believe how fast it flew by. I'm soaking up the last few weeks of it and found the most perfect red dress to wear on upcoming vacations and special occasions! My dress is from Stage and I was so excited to see that they offer tons of other gorgeous dresses at super reasonable prices. I'm all for a good deal and Stage is where it's at. A few of my favorite brands they carry are Romeo and Juliet, Jessica Simpson and Kensie.

I tend to lean towards brighter colors in the summer and this stunning blue maxi dress also caught my eye! How perfect would it be on a tropical vacay? It would be so pretty paired with these killer heels that are so fun! Scrolling through the Stage website had me drooling over all the fun summer dresses they have at such a great value, especially this stripe wrap dress that I need in my life! 

Now, on to the good stuff. Let's discuss the dress at hand and current favorite in my wardrobe! What I loved most about this dress is how vibrant the red color is and the lace tier detail. I wore it last week for my 30th birthday celebration and got so many compliments! I wasn't surprised because I feel like this is the kind of dress that turns heads and makes a statement. The detailing is just gorgeous and truly makes this dress unique. I know I said this dress is perfect for summer, but I will definitely be rocking it this fall too! As far as sizing goes, it fits true to size and I'm wearing a small here. 

Keep scrolling to see more shots of this stunner!

CHARLESTON TRAVEL GUIDE

IMG_2075.JPG

A few weeks ago my girlfriends and I went to Charleston for a fun girls getaway! Jaclyn, Geordian, Yasmina and I all stayed at the Renaissance Charleston. I'm going to share more about the hotel, where we ate, and what we did for fun! I've also included links to all my outfits I wore during the trip so you can easily shop anything you like as you scroll through the post. 

WHERE WE STAYED

IMG_3153.JPG

The Renaissance Charleston was the cutest hotel! Not only were we greeted with popsicles but the modern decor was absolutely stunning and staff so friendly! The hotel is conveniently located off King street, which is FULL of shops, restaurants, bars, etc. It was the best location for our group and we found it so easy to walk to most of the places we wanted to go. We also enjoyed the free bikes the hotel offers for guests to ride and explore Charleston.

How gorgeous is the suite we stayed in? It was incredibly spacious and honestly didn't feel like a hotel room. I loved the open floor plan and how there was a separate living room where we could all hang out. The hotel also has a gym and rooftop pool - we didn't work out during our stay (shocker) but definitely hit up the pool! We felt right at home at the Renaissance and I highly recommend this hotel if you're traveling to Charleston!

WHERE WE ATE

Millers All Day - Ahh we had the BEST brunch here! This restaurant came highly recommended so we had to check it out! The mimosas were great and the southern food was truly incredible! The biscuits and gravy are a MUST - thank me later! 

IMG_3405.JPG

1Kept - This restaurant is actually located inside the Renaissance Hotel and as you can see the decor here is on point too! We had both brunch and dinner here and I can't recommend it enough! The brussel sprouts and chicken and waffles are a must! We also had the best cocktails here, definitely try the Sunday Punch! 

Darling Oyster Bar - I loved the ambiance at this restaurant! I enjoyed rosé at their cute bar and highly recommend trying the oysters or many of their other great seafood options! 

WHAT TO DO IN CHARLESTON

IMG_3409.JPG

PRIVATE SAILING CHARTER - I'm so glad we decided to go on a private sailing charter with OM Sailing Charters! It was definitely the highlight of our trip in my opinion! It's a great activity for a group of girls.. just laying out, enjoying cocktails and sailing around - need I say more? Captain Banff was incredibly accommodating to all our needs, let us take a million pictures and even helped us out with several group shots! During the sail you have the option to park and swim if you want which is really nice! It's so hot/humid in Charleston that I feel like that is kind of necessary in the summer time. Our trip was 3 hours, but OM Sailing Charters also offers full day trips and event sunset tours! I'd love to go on a sunset tour the next time I visit.

Booking a Private Sailing Charter is a MUST when in Charleston and you can learn more about OM Sailing Charters on Trip Advisor !

RAINBOW ROW - If you do one touristy thing in Charleston, visiting Rainbow Row should be it! Known for it's row of colorful historic houses, this spot is Instagram worthy and great for taking pictures! Rainbow Row is a very popular spot, good luck trying to get a snap with no one else in it!

North on King Street - This is where you'll want to go for the bar scene in Charleston! We went to Republic on Friday night which is a club with really great dance music. On Saturday night we checked out Stars which had more of a laid back rooftop bar we loved! The first floor of Stars has a DJ and was crazy packed while we were there. I definitely recommend both spots for nightlife in Charleston!
