2019: CAR COATS + A SUGAR DETOX

           

Going back to work after 10-14 days off feels like an actual slap in the face. I don’t even know how to function normally. I don’t often sleep in, but over break, I slept well until 8:30-9a.m., and now I’m afraid I won’t be able to make my usual 6:15 a.m. wake up call. Someone help! Not to mention, the weather is expected to get a little chillier these next couple weeks, and I’m far from prepared for that. And while my typical OOTD on vacation consisted of leggings, no makeup, and a chunky sweater, I did try to spruce it up a bit, in an effort to feel more productive. One of my coziest and most put-together staples is this reversible camel and grey wool car coat. It IS everything. It’s not stiff or overbearingly heavy like your average wool coat. Instead, it is more like a more substantial cardigan with pockets and a more esteemed collar. It’s light enough to layer with chunky turtlenecks, sweaters, and the perfect flowy button-up like the one styled. Lately, I’ve been resorting to these suede block heels, but I recently purchased some low, neutral suede booties that will look equally as good, but a little more casual.

I’m thinking my first day back to the office tomorrow will consist of my stretchiest most acceptable pants, a loose tee, and the chunkiest/coziest knit I could find. Sounds good, right? Wish me luck as I head back to work, detox from sugar and try not to drink more than three cups of coffee in the first two hours of work.

Cheers to 2019! I haven’t made any resolutions yet. Thinking of setting some goals, though. TBD!

FOCUS ON THE LEMON TOP

Details: Lemon front-tie top via Nordstrom Rack, similar styles below |

Summer is winding down and I’m doing my best to savor every last minute by spending time outside, hitting the beach and wearing as many sleeveless tops as possible. I have a ton of clothes that transition to fall, but this adorable lemon tie-front top is not one of them. So, you’ll absolutely catch me wearing it right up until pumpkin spice lattes are sold at Starbucks. I know I’m going to regret saying this, but I am excited for the fall season. Back to hot coffees, chunky scarves, and booties.

But I’m practicing living in the moment and learning to “Be.” So until I feel the chill air and see the leaves falling, I won’t think about booties and scarves. Instead, I’ll focus on my lemon top and let the sun tan my skin for as long as possible.

THE JUMPSUIT THAT FEELS LIKE FAMILY

Details: Wearever Full-Leg Jumpsuit, c/o J.Jill, here |

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of attending my cousin’s wedding in Killington, Vermont. It was such a (not to sound cheesy) love-filled weekend. You know when you don’t realize you needed some quality family time until you have the best time with your family and realize it’s exactly what you needed. I left Vermont feeling so loved, and with new hilarious memories to recount with the fam. It reminded me that there are a group of equally quirky, weird, hilarious, loving, beautiful people who love me. It feels so good to have that many people in your corner, and last weekend was a huge reminder of that.

On to the outfit (I promise, it’s related). This ultra-cozy, super flattering and wear-everywhere jumpsuit is EVERYTHING. It’s so comfortable, fits like a glove (available in petite sizing), and makes me feel good about myself. Just like my family. It makes me feel confident and comfortable in my own skin. I haven’t stopped wearing it and it’s so easy to take from day to night. Wear it with a casual pair of platform sandals, or your favorite summer wedges and statement earrings–PERFECTION.

Take away from the blog post: If you’re ever feeling lost, alone or just having a bad day, remember that there are a group of equally weird, hilarious, beautiful people who love you and always will.
