#flatlay Friday & weekend links

outfits, Round up comment

Happy Friday, friends! Often, outfits don’t make it to the blog, simply because of lack of time. I’ll be starting a new series with an inspiration outfit and also, finds from the week to help you unwind just in time for the weekend. So, without further ado…

Striped dress | navy sleeveless sweater vest / cardigan | pink clutch | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Navy sweater vest (similar, similar)

Striped dress – Joie (similar, similar)
Last seen styled 4 ways: here, here, here, here

Pink clutch (similar, similar {charging wristlet})

 
This week’s finds…
• Just got these charcoal grey leggings in the mail and they are exactly what I have been wanting: thick, don’t stretch in a way that gives you diaper butt, and aren’t see through! A win-win all around.

• A knotted belt has been on my wishlist for awhile now. These two black and brown options (both under $17) are perfect for pants and also, defining the waistline with dresses and skirts.

• Banana Republic’s friends and family event is going on through Nov 6 (40% off entire purchase with code BRFAMILY). This dress mysteriously made it into my shopping cart…

• I’ve been making these 3 ingredient “cookies” for my toddler but stumbled across this apple cinnamon version that sounds oh-so-yummy

• The unofficial uniform of venture capitalists in Silicon Valley is the fleece vest

• Home decorating? Visualize that couch you have your eye on before you buy in your existing space

• Currently listening: Dirty John podcast – “Debra Newell is a successful interior designer. She meets John Meehan, a handsome man who seems to check all the boxes: attentive, available, just back from a year in Iraq with Doctors Without Borders. But her family doesn’t like John, and they get entangled in an increasingly complex web of love, deception, forgiveness, denial, and ultimately, survival.”

Lady in red: Fall’s IT color

style trend comment

Fashion's Fall 2017 color trend: red | see all the pops of red picks at www.shoppingmycloset.com

Red has always been known as a power color and it’s not more apparent than in this season’s fashion offerings. Look around and you’ve probably seen all red looks. For some, it can be an intimidating color to pull off so I recommend starting small and building up your confidence. I’ve rounded up some great pieces that can be used to create eye-popping looks below:

1. Red blazer with gold hardware {3 colors, under $90} (I own this in navy and am eyeing the red, too)

2. Red velvet skirt {on sale – $12}

3. Convertible 3-in-1 Tory Burch purse (wallet, clutch, crossbody) {4 colors}

4. Red Hunter boots {11 colors} (ask for 45% off price match to this retailer)

5. Striped red cuffed shirt
{2 colors}

6. Red wool coat {3 colors}

7. Red ankle boots {4 colors}

8. Red sweater dress {under $40 and 4 colors}

Front tie sweater | colorblock fit and flare dress  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Grey tie hem sweater

Colorblock dress – Neiman Marcus (old) (similar)

Loving this sweater for the fall! It comes in 3 colors and is under $50 right now!

Striped tie front sleeveless top | mint green pants  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Bow neck tie sleeveless top

Mint green ankle pants

Loving the light color of these pants and contrasted with bold stripes of the top. Change the look of the outfit by tying the shirt front into a bow or have it hang down as is.

Blazer | striped t-shirt dress | loafer slides  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Cutaway navy blazer – Veronica Beard {budget friendly}

Striped dress

Mule slides

I’ve been looking for a striped shirt dress and this one fits the criteria and budget (under $15!)

Striped wrap dress  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Dual striped wrap dress

The contrast of the different stripe sizes makes this dress unique. To make the dress more work-friendly, I’d probably add a snap button or layer a lace camisole underneath (or this bra that wouldn’t add more layers), or a bandeau bra.

Floral dress  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Floral fit & flare dress

Florals get me every time, and this one did just that. The soft wisps and brush stroke pattern won me over.

Pink striped top | nautical shorts |  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Pink striped flutter sleeve top – Banana Republic (similar)

Nautical-inspired navy shorts

Tory Burch ballet flats

Nautical shorts for the win! I happened to be wearing a pink top while trying these shorts and I love the color combination. For a more preppy look, pair with a white button down shirt.

Green utility jacket | white eyelet peplum | cork ballet flats  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Green field / utility jacket

White eyelet peplum – GAP (similar)

Black jeans {budget friendly}

Cork bow-tie ballet flats – Kate Spade {budget friendly}

This field jacket came home with me. Things that won me over: popped collar, drawstring waist, and lots of pockets!

Flamingo sweatshirt | white shorts | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Flamingo sweatshirt {super soft!}

White shorts

This sweatshirt is sooooo soft and I can’t believe it’s only $15!

White tie front blouse | striped skirts | scallop ballet  | www.shoppingmycloset.com

Waist tie front button down {budget friendly}

Striped sweater skirt {on clearance here; budget friendly}

Scallop ballet flats {budget friendly}

I can definitely appreciate a tie-front top to accentuate the waist. This top would be very versatile to pair with just about anything – a skirt, pants, jeans!
