FRIDAY FAVES + MY WEEKEND PLANS

T G I F my friends!  I am off today and looking forward to spending it with my oldest at Six Flags!  I haven’t been in YEARS, but it should be a good time.  I made a promise to myself before summer started that I would take random days off throughout the summer instead of stockpiling days off to use at the end of the year when it’s too cold outside to do fun things anyways!  I’m happy to report that I’ve held myself to it and I’m so glad that I have.

So as summer starts to wind down a bit, I wanted to share some of my favorite pieces (all of which are under $30)!

SIMPLE SLIDE SANDAL

I have been wearing these cute slides all summer long.  They come in a few colors and are under $30!  They go with everything from jeans to dresses to skirts!  They have held up really well too!

A FUN SUMMER PURSE

I recently snagged this little beauty for $6 at an antique store!  I thought it was such a cute purse for summertime outfits.  The best part is these beaded bags are having a bit of a comeback right now!  Fashion most definitely repeats itself!

PIXI BY PETRA LIP GLOSS

The Pixi by Petra Honey Sheen lipgloss has been a fave of mine for awhile now.  I love the nude glossy look it gives and I also love that I can trust this company and their ingredients used!  They carry so many great products, I’m linking my go to’s below!

3 WAYS TO WEAR CROPPED FLARE JEANS

If you’re like me and need some additional options for your summer wardrobe, let me introduce you to these cropped flare jeans!  I can’t even tell you the last time I shopped this brand, but a coworker recently had a similar pair on at work and convinced me I needed a pair.  My husband is totally NOT a fan of these, but what does he know?!  A couple of things to keep in mind when choosing a pair of cropped flare jeans:

  • A good length hits just about right above the ankle.
  • A frayed hem provides the perfect amount of distressing.
  • Tuck your shirt in to show off a high waist jean.
  • Mules with a cropped flare provide a chic look.

A PLAIN WHITE TEE

I’m pretty sure “plain white tee” could be found in multiple places across my site if you were to do a search.  What can I say, you just cannot go wrong!  It’s definitely a summer staple, click here to read my post on this! Since I’m wearing a pair of high waisted cropped flare jeans, I decided to tie this tee in a little knot in back to show off the waist.  A simple block heel is always a great option with this style of jean as well!  This look is perfect for running a few errands.

A FITTED TUCKED IN SHIRT

This bodysuit (comes in 4 colors, under $10) is a great option for flare jeans.  A fitted tucked in shirt accentuates the high waist. I love pairing these flares with some mules because it pulls the outfit together for a chic look.  This would be a great option for date night!

A COLLARED SHIRT

I love this option for a day in the office.  You could tuck the collared shirt in, or tie in a front knot like I have here.  It’s casual, but still pulled together for the office and again allows you to show off the high waist.
