The Best Picks of the 40% Off of Sale at J. Crew

The Best Picks of the 40% Off of Sale at J. Crew

J. Crew and I have been in a love/hate relationship for waaaay too long. For a while, every time I would start to get into J.Crew something will happen that would change my mind. Let’s face it, there have been some challenges over the last several years and they have ranged from declining quality and raising prices to items that are not wearable.
But, things are looking up lately! I just spent a good hour perusing their sale and there are some seriously great pieces I would love to have in my closet!

Check out more of my sale posts here and here.

Here are some of my favorites:

1. Super Cute Eyelet Blouse with Bell Sleeve $79.50 NOW $55.50

4. Seriously Cool Tortoise Sunnies WAS $128 NOW $89

5. A Cocktail Dress that is Super Versatile WAS $188 NOW $112

A Seriously Cute Scalloped Sweater for Only $24!

A Seriously Cute Scalloped Sweater for Only $24!

I am seriously crushing on this scalloped sweater at Forever 21. I used to shop at Forever 21 all the time but then went through a period of time where I wasn’t finding a lot of stuff that I loved. But this sweater is so perfect because it’s on trend, comfy, and could be worn a bunch of different ways. I can’t wait to get my hands on this!

So glad sweater weather is finally here, I definitely enjoyed the summer a little too much. Plus a glass of wine always tastes better in the fall.

Loving Lately: 20 Cozy Sweaters and Fall Booties

Loving Lately: Cozy Sweaters and Fall Booties

I am more than ready for fall and some crisp, cool weather. As soon as September 1st hit I was searching incessantly for cozy sweaters, tops, booties and fall beauty updates as well. Free People has been a “go-to” for great bohemian-chic pieces for a long time, but recently their sweaters and knits have been the best I have seen! Normally I wouldn’t spend $100-$150 on anything, including sweaters, but it’s tough to get a good inexpensive sweater. I’ve bought tons of cheaper ones that have barely held up more than a few months. They always end up pilled, stretched out, discolored, etc. Now, I know that I have to invest in a handful of great sweaters every few years so that I’m not disappointed and I don’t have drawers over flowing with tons of sweaters I hate!

Here are a few sweaters I am currently lusting over:

1. Women’s Volcom Cold Daze Wrap Sweater • Volcom • $65

3. Aerie Tie Sleeve Sweater • aerie • $54.95

Sanctuary Vineyards Tasting Look in the Perfect Late Summer Dress

Sanctuary Vineyards Tasting Look in the Perfect Late Summer Dress

I got to go to Sanctuary Vineyards today right before Hurricane Harvey is going to make an appearance in the Outer Banks and it was amazing. Sanctuary Vineyards is a vineyard I have driven by dozens of times and I have been dying to visit. Finally I was able to and it seriously didn’t disappoint. If you have ever visited the Outer Banks, chances are you have tried one of their wines as you can find them in most of the local restaurants. I highly recommend visiting because the full tasting was completely worth the wait.

Check out their outdoor concerts every Thursday as well!

Here is what I wore:

1. Women’s Topshop Floral Smock Dress • Topshop • $54.99

The Skinny Wine List I Wish I Knew About at the Beginning of Summer!

The Skinny Wine List I Wish I Knew About at the Beginning of Summer!

I have been on a health and fitness kick since I turned 35 at the beginning of the month because I realized that I am definitely starting to see the effects of getting older! It sucks! I’m working out regularly and eating really healthy but I somehow still packed on at least 10 pounds. I know that’s not a lot but I am fairly petite and it’s just making me feel less like myself. An obvious gap in my relatively healthy lifestyle is the wine. I HATE to admit it…but my love of rose is most likely to blame for my newfound weight gain. Bummer. Time for some balance peeps.

Healthy Link Love:
1. How to Stop Wine Hangovers (Umm Yes, Please!)
2. Ullo Wine Filter (I’m DYING to Try This!)
3. 4 Teas that Melt Fat ( AKA I will be trying ALL of these)
4. What Diet Experts Order At the Bar (How Have I Not Read This Before?)
5. 10 Best Low Calorie Drinks You Can Order Anywhere (No Brainer)

After doing some additional research I found a list of “skinny wines” that will be making their way into my weekly rotation stat:

Gallo Family Low Calorie Wines

Lindeman’s Early Harvest Skinny Wines

Skinny Vine Wine Family

Skinny Girl Wine Family

Here is a list of the 20 best wines under $20.

Here are some of my favorite workout picks to go along with the health theme… Thank goodness these are all cute enough to actually motivate me to get to the gym!

Cheers everyone!! Now I’m off to burn some of these wine calories off 🙂

Wednesday Wants & Wishes: A Gorgeous Blush or Ivory Dress

Wednesday Wants & Wishes: A Gorgeous Blush or Ivory Dress

I cant really explain it but I have been obsessed with finding the perfect blush or ivory dress lately.  I love these colors for many reasons, one the colors are universally flattering, and second they are both timeless. More than likely, most dresses you buy in this color palette will be classic enough to last you a very long time.  One of my favorite sites Revolve always has an incredible selection of dresses but right now they have the BEST selection of blush and ivory dresses that I can find. I’ve scoured the site and these are my absolute favorites:
