Style Your Senses
A Life + Style Blog for the modern millennial who wants it all.
September 1, 2016 |
Hi Friends! How was your week? Coming back to the real world was not so fun after vacation, but my mom coming to visit softened the blow a little. This is my last full week of being a little spacey on the blog and next week it’s back to school for little bit and back to work full time for mama. I cannot wait to share all of my content for September…I have SO many style guides, trend reports and Fall fashion posts lined up, so hold off on your Fall purchases for just a few more days!! Until then, here’s the Friday Edit with everything that happened on the blog this week!
Finds Under $50 was definitely the top post this week! You guys are eager for Fall and had so many favorites from these style steals! The top items were definitely the shirt that I begged you to buy (only after buying it for myself, of course #duh) and the leopard clutch that I promise you’ll wear the heck out of! See all of the details HERE or shop from the board below:
This surplice top and boyfriend jeans post was also a big hit. I love this top, and also listed some less expensive dupes. I talked about the new fit of boyfriend jeans and why this pair is such a bargain! See all of the details HERE or find the products below:
On Monday, I also shared an Instagram Roundup from all of August and some of your favorite items were definitely the cute little boho dress, the girlfriend chinos, and my favorite new white t-shirt! See all of my August OOTD’s HERE.
While my Instagram game was definitely slow this week, this $14.99 tank was definitely the winner! I love the color (obviously, it’s all I’ve been wearing) and the shape is super cute. I paired it with shorts for now, but love it with jeans and a cardigan later as well!
Tank | Shorts | Sneakers | Bag | Watch | Necklace
Ya’ll I got this new watch and I’m kind of obsessing. My other gold watch is from 8 years ago and it was actually Dan’s first ever gift to me…for our 6 month dating anniversary….LOL! It was definitely time for an upgrade and I’m still dying over this new this Marc Jacobs beauty that I chose. It has an emerald green face and love it paired with the gold. If you are in the market for a new watch…definitely give this one some consideration!
Tank (on sale for $9!) | Watch | Necklace | Bag
If you’re still on the hunt for a cute bootie, these suede midi booties were just released and are the perfect shape! I love the height and they also come in cognac…obsessed with both! Shop them HERE.
Came across this recipe on Pinterest and have it on my list for dinner next week. My obsession with goat cheese is real and I love how this is prepared and served warm. Might add some chicken or sausage for the hubs. See the full recipe HERE.
Ya’ll, Wayfair is blowing it out of the water lately. I was browsing (because I obviously have too much time on my hands) the headboards and came across THIS ONE (a KING, mind you!) for under $300! Such a classic and beautiful option that’s timeless.
How about this chandelier??? Over a dining room table??? I DIE! Also $435 with free two day shipping! Shop it HERE.
I saw this little cross front top in Nordstrom today and the sales gal said that they had been SO popular so I ended up having to come home and order my size. I love the cross front because I almost always do a front half tuck and this saves me the trouble. It is also longer in the back which makes it just ideal in my book…not to mention it’s as soft as butter! I went back and fourth between this mossy green color and the maroon but ended up going for the green. Since it’s only $29, technically I shouldn’t feel guilty about buying BOTH colors. If t-shirts and jeans are your speed, definitely consider adding this one to your line up. Shop it HERE.
So this week, I went on the hunt for a long lasting neutral lip for Fall! I stumbled upon Smashbox’s “Always on My Mind Matte” lipgloss. Now the trick is that it goes on like a glass and dries like a creamy matte…and IT LASTS. I got 5 solid hours of wear without having to reapply or feeling like my lips were going to dry off. Definitely give this one a try if you happen to be looking for the same thing! I took color: Pink Neutral. Shop all of the colors HERE.
Sales & Steals:
There are lots of Labor Day sales that have already started and here are a few of my favorites!
LOFT is having a buy one get one 50% off sale with no restrictions and an extra 50% off of sale prices. This relaxed tunic tee is one of my favorites for Fall transition. Best part is that it’s $15! Shop it HERE.
Okay, I know that this is still pretty pricey, but if you’ve been eyeing a classic Burberry jacket boy do I have a deal for you! The Leightonbury jacket is absolutely GORGEOUS (with a bit more of an edge than the traditional quilted jacket) and is 50% off in all 4 colors, including black!!! Such an insane deal and a jacket that you’ll have in your closet for 15 years. Shop it HERE.
Gap is offering 40% off of your entire purchase and my favorite girlfriend chinos are on sale for $36! Shop them HERE.
Old Navy is offering 30% off of full price items, with a few even deeper markdowns. My mom got this dress in two colors yesterday. It’s absolutely DARLING on and is such a cute fit for Fall. Shop it HERE.
Happy Weekend, loves! I hope that you have a great long weekend! I’ll see you guys back on Tuesday. Stay tuned to Instagram and Snapchat to see where we are headed! xo
