This shirt is a feel good shirt for me, because I wore it on one of the very first posts on C. Style. Now it's 2 years later and I still love the shirt.  And guess what? Those jeans are on super SALE when you use the extra 40% off code.  They've been perfect for the summer…

I can just throw on a cute top and look summery because of the light wash of the jeans.  Not to mention, they're super stretchy and comfy.

I just received my bootie/sandal/wedge from the Nordstrom anniversary sale in the mail, and I freaking love them. I was taking a picture of them to send to a friend, but I forgot to take an everyday outfit picture, so here it is.  I actually had my flat tan sandals on that day, but this looks pretty good -no?  Maybe on a fun casual date?  

Will you guys do me a favor?  Sometimes when I write these posts I think to myself, "Hmmmmm, these outfits seem so uninspiring". So, if y'all are inspired, let me know!  I love to hear from you. After all, you all are where I get my inspiration!

Most Versatile Top




Versatile, Black Silk Tank, Green Army Pants, Leopard Flats

This outfit was inspired by a comment from a friend. We were headed to a girls dinner and she said something about us throwing on our usual white jeans and a cute top for dinner (my go to girls night out outfit).  What she didn't know was that I viewed it as a challenge to come up with something different -ha!  

Black Silk Tank, Versatile, Green Army Pants, Leopard Flats

So there I was, starring at the clothes in my closet, trying to figure out how to make my green pants (something that I mostly wear in the fall/winter) work for a girls night out in the dead of the summer.  Well, what's easier than pairing the pants with a sleeveless top? 

Black Silk Tank, Green Army Pants, Leopard Flats, Versatile

I'll have to say that this black silk tank is one of THE MOST VERSATILE TOPS I have in my closet.  I wear it all the time (as you've probably noticed) -ha!  I wear it as a shell under a blazer, alone tucked into a skirt, with white jeans and black heels, or sloppy tucked into skinnies with flats. I must say, it was a really good purchase of mine from last years Nordstrom Anniversary sale.

Favorite Finds

For those of you who are new to the blog, "Favorite Finds" is where I post all of my best finds from my shopping excursions. Lots of these favorite finds came from my shopping trip this weekend with my aunt, cousin and sister.

Shopping, Anthropologie, White Jeans, Sisters, Aunt, Cousin, Highland Village, Houston, TX
And so, without further ado… cue the music…."These are a few of my favorite thingsssssss…..."

Old Navy, Wedges, Neutral, Neutral Wedges, Sandals, Savings, Deals
Gold Wedges, Old Navy, Savings

Old Navy, Black Wedges, Black Sandals, J.Crew

Navy flats, D'orsay flats, Fall, Navy
There are the cutest shoes at Old Navy right now! What doesn't go with the gold and skin tone wedges?  I practically have the exact same pair of black sandals from J. Crew, and I've never seen cuter navy shoes.  

Burnt Orange, Orange Top, Anthropologie, UT, University of Texas, Football Season Outfit
Alright, this shirt is for all my burnt orange/UT fans. This is definitely the cutest burnt orange top I've ever seen, and I have seen lots and lots. So to all my UT friends, this shirt is for you!

Chambray Shirt, Layering, Transition, Anthropologie
I love this chambray shirt. For one, I love the light color of it.  I also love the coverage it provides. It reminds me of my favorite shirt from last fall.  It's also a perfect layering piece. You know when you what to throw something on over your sundress, romper, jumpsuit, tank top, but you want it to have an effortless feel?  This is what I envision doing with this.  A great shirt to wear all by itself or as a jean jacket/cardigan alternative. 

Festival Clutch, Anthropologie, Clutch, Blue, Handbag, Purse
I love this navy leather clutch! And the best part? It's on SALE! Need I say more?

Tie Dye shirt, Urban Outfitters
So if you haven't noticed, I'm really into tie dye lately. I feel like I can throw on this super duper soft tee with some jean shorts and look really cute and hip.  In the fall, I could throw it on with some jeans and a cute army jacket and look super cute.  I just feel cool when I have tie dye on -ha!  

J.Crew, Black Flat, Fall Staple, Classic
Well, you know, pretty soon we will all be on the hunt for a cute pair of black flats for the fall/winter.  I love that these flats are nondescript, sophisticated, classy, and chic all at the same time!  I love that you can wear them to work with a skirt or slacks, just as easily as you can with a pair of jeans or a dress on the weekend.  

Straw Tote, Anthropologie, Sale, Leather
I have been eyeing this tote since I saw it in the Anthropologie catalog at the beginning of the summer.  Well, I actually got to touch and feel it, and it's better in person.  The outside rope is super soft and so is the leather.  I love that it's super neutral and now it's on SALE!!!  Ahhhhhhh!

Now, anyone going on a beach vacation? The next three finds are for you. I love my sister (TITYN), because she was super willing to let me take pics of her and post them.  But I also love my cousin for her patience. She sat waiting in the dressing room with us while we took pictures.  Yes, all three of us in this tiny dressing room.  That's the way we do it-ha!  My sis is headed on a Caribbean vacation, and she needed some cute, summery clothes.    

Anthropologie, Pilcro, Shorts, Noyo Tee, Vacation, Caribbean, Shopping, Summer
Well, everywhere we went was full of fall clothes, but not at Anthropologie!  Thank you, Anthro, because it's still super hot here, and I'm still wearing my shorts all the time -ha!  But what you need to understand is that my sister NEVER finds clothes, and we found three really awesome tops.  I am dying over this top and those shorts.  In fact, the shorts made every top look that much cuter.  

Anthropologie, Black and White, Transition, Summer, Fall, Shopping
I love how flow-y and cute this top is. It will transition perfectly into the fall with a pair of black skinnies.

Shopping, Anthropologie, Shorts, Finn Tank
Seriously, how much cuter can this outfit get?!?!?  I'd say she's ready for a Caribbean vacation!
