It’s finally Friday…jiggity jig!!! This week was a doozy for many reasons, but we will save that for a rainy day an focus on the Friday Edit right now! It was a fun week on the blog and I finally got to share NYC details with you guys…which was definitely the top post! Here’s a recap of the highlights, top posts, link loves, and some amazing sales…
NYC Recap | A whirlwind trip to the Big Apple with Vanity Fair!
Read all about my trip to NYC, why I was there, and what we did! I’m sharing a few NYC recommendations, too!
I have to admit, I was surprised by how receptive you guys were to the Trend to Try: Flat Mules post!!! It’s definitely a different silhouette for most of you, but turns out you’re totally down to try it. You guys loved number eight the most (as did I!) and I will style them for a few upcoming blog posts! Shop all of my favorites below!
Bomber Jacket | Favorite Grey T-Shirt (Under $20)| Similar Denim Shorts (Also sub THESE boyfriend jeans for a late Fall look) | Puma Sneakers (tons more favorites below) | Leopard Clutch | Gold Bangles | Gold + Leather Choker (literally $15!) | Sunnies | Neutral Lips | Nails
Best of Instagram:
You guys totally love these girlfriend chinos as much as I do! So many of you snagged them, that I’m planning to shoot an entire post on multiple ways to style them…not to mention I’ve already got them in two more colors. They are so comfortable and cute and a refreshing alternative to denim! PS: they are currently on sale for a limited time HERE.
White Tank | Girlfriend Chinos | Sneakers | Bag
I wore this girly number for Sunday mass and I couldn’t love it any more. Granted, we don’t go to a super formal church, so this was the most “dressed up” I’ve been in a while, but I couldn’t help myself I was just dying to wear this dress. It’s so flattering and has the perfect amount of girly details. I love it for Fall baby or wedding showers….
The most adorable dress of EVER!
I shared a peek of this inspiration image on Instagram earlier this week, as it’s the jumping off point for a new little project. The design is by Summer Thornton and, ladies, if you want some seriously swoon worthy design inspiration for your weekend enjoyment, head over to her site. This girl is so talented and every detail of her design is perfection…see more HERE.
Have you guys seen the new Sincerely Jules Collection at Nordstrom?? It’s good! I love her effortlessly chic style and I think that her collection of comfy tees and non-fussy tops (most priced well under $100!) are a perfect reflection of that! Here are two of my favorites…
This chiffon top is probably one of the most perfect Fall tops of ever…breezy as the temperatures decide to make up their minds, but still good for denim + layering. Under $100 and you can secure yours via pre-order HERE.
This one has been so popular and obviously I can see why…it’s so darn cute! I love it by itself with cute joggers + sneakers or under a fitted blazer for a pop of whimsy! Shop it HERE for under $50!
I stumbled across this little top and I thought that you guys might like it as much as I do! So dainty and great by itself or layered with a cardigan or blazer for work. Great price at $63 and all sizes are in stock.
Lace Top | $63
I was searching for rugs for absolutely no reason….because obviously I have nothing better to do…and almost died when I came across this colorful Kilim! It’s not too bright and works as more of a neutral and OMG you can get a 6×9 for $169!!!! Shop all sizes HERE.
Did you guys read this blog post that puts Restoration Hardware on blast? I know that you guys are savvy shoppers, so you probably knew that their high prices were a total joke, but if you didn’t you should give it a read. Please don’t fall for their crap…there are plenty of other options, which is why you follow along here, right?! 😉 For example, look at these two lights…exact same…
This 6 light chandelier is originally $1825 on RH’s site, on “sale” for $1425 or you can buy into a membership and get it for $1282…keep in mind you’re also paying an astronomical shipping fee on TOP of this!
THIS one is also 6 light and is $616 (one THIRD RH’s regular price and HALF of their member price!) also you get it shipped FREE!
Sales + Steals:
Remember these two dresses that you loved??? They are now both on MAJOR sale!!!!
NOW ON SALE FOR $78.00!
NOW ON SALE FOR $82.00!
Ladies, these were the “IT” sandals of both this summer AND this past summer! Cute, on-trend, but not overwhelming! They have now been marked down to 50% off (unheard of for Rebecca Minkoff!) and more sizes are still in stock in all three colors! Shop them for $60 (!!) HERE.
Shop the blush color (my fav) HERE!
This darling stripe blazer was a hit via the daily email and there are still all sizes left! It’s on sale for under $40 and is a great fall staple for both working girls and busy mamas! Throw it over a t-shirt with boyfriend jeans OR pair is with a cropped ponte pant and a cute flat for the office. Such a steal (and there’s also a solid black!

Hi! Just wanted to tell you how much I love your blog, especially the Friday edit! And I love the rug you have on there, but the link takes me to the ASOS website, not the rug website. Can you let me know where the rug is from?

You are a rockstar…I thought everyone knew how crazy overpriced it was, but am SO shocked that some of my friends are still shopping there. I’ll be interested to see where RH goes from here! xoxo
