Hey everybody! What’s goin’ on? Hope you’ve all been having a great week so far! Charlie got home from his work trip on Tuesday. Poor guy took a red-eye and he’s still trying to get back on a normal schedule. Yesterday and Tuesday were my days off this week so I tried to get a lot done. I cleaned the apartment, cooked a little, worked out, and even had a couple of hours by the pool. I’ve also been getting motivated to finally hop on my massive to-do list for the blog! I’m ready to buckle down and bring you guys some really good stuff! I’ve already started by adding a “Shop my Instagram” tab (’bout time) to make it easier for you guys to shop looks!
On a much more personal note, I wanted to share some exciting news with you guys. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen this from my stories last week, but this is regarding my latest health update. Last Friday I had a follow up visit with my GI doc aaaaand guess what… my Crohn’s is finally and officially back in remission!!! I’m so flippin’ excited, you guys! I had been feeling mostly well over the last month or so, but my test results were just moving at a snails pace to reach the “normal line.” But they finally did! I may have cried a little when I left the doctor’s office-happy tears of course.
Okay this is my kind of outfit, you guys. You’re probably learning that I really love wearing basic pieces because of their versatility. I also love a good casual, laid back look. So this basic and casual outfit is like the best of the best wrapped up into one whole look!
I wanted to keep things a little bit oversized and relaxed but also nice and simple, so this top was a great option! I love this blouse because A) it’s really comfy and B) it dresses down super easily but also dresses up really well because of the buttons and collar! Actually… I like it so much that I got it in navy, too. I wore a pair of relaxed jeans but decided to stay away from rips just to keep things a little cleaner. I get so many questions about these jeans every time I post them. Unfortunately this exact pair is sold out, but this pair is almost identical! They’re the same brand and cut as the ones I’m wearing but in a slightly different wash.
I felt like going cognac all the way for this look (clearly). I wore flat sandals (’cause we’re bein’ casual) and carried my favorite crossbody bag as of late. But no crazy accessories for this simple look. I did decided to throw a belt on to keep things looking put together, though. And of course, front tuck for the win. I’ve mentioned it before, but a good front tuck or side tuck is such an easy way to give the simplest of outfits some added oomph and dimension!
I wanted to make a quick note to say happy Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It’s every fashionistas favorite time of year! Early access starts today for Nordstrom cardholders, so get shoppin’! I’ll have a blog post for ya’ll tomorrow going over my favorite picks from the sale!
