Hello lovelies!! So about a month or so ago, I was reading an article about Victoria Beckham, one of my celebrity style faves.  She talked about colors affecting your mood, and red being happy, optimistic, and strong.  She was wearing a red dress at the time for one of her collection launches at Saks.

I really liked the idea of color boosting your mood and making you feel strong, powerful and a little happy too.  It was on my mind when I was trying to decide on which color to buy this gorgeous top in.  It comes in 14 different colors and prints.  I saw the red, and my mind thought back to that article and said yep I’m getting this in red.

I love off the shoulder tops that have some support at the neckline.  It holds them in place, so no worries about keeping your top up.  The flowy chiffon material is so pretty and moves really well.  It is slightly sheer in the body portion.  I didn’t feel like I needed anything under the red, but a lighter shade might need something.  Bonus by the way, this top is currently on sale for 40% off!

Another good thing about this red off the shoulder blouse, it is going to transition perfectly into fall with some black jeans.

Alright you guys, it’s Style File Link Up day!!! Keep on scrolling to share a little style inspiration or to check out more outfit ideas.  Thanks for stopping by ya’ll.

Hello friends! I hope your week has gone well, and you are gearing up for a fun end of summer weekend!  Just a few short weeks until September and all the fall things begin.  It’s also time to start putting together outfit ideas that can work for transitioning from summer to fall.

This casual navy dress is perfect for that in between time of year.  It’s lightweight and loose fitting allowing you to stay cool for the warmer parts of the day, but also long sleeve for a cooler night.

Ya’ll, how cute are these booties with a dress.  You may remember me wearing them with jeans a couple weeks ago in this post.  I love them styled both ways.  Peep toe booties have become one of my must haves for warm summer and fall days when you still need a little breathing room for your feet.

What are some of your favorite things to wear during the summer to fall transitional weather?  I hope ya’ll have a fun weekend, and thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hello Ladies! I’m so excited to share this outfit with ya’ll today.  When I originally saw this necklace, I pictured it styled with a casual crew neck tee or tank, pretty much exactly like this combo today.  I love love love this casual glam mix.  This outfit would be so fun for a date night with your special someone or wine night with your favorite gal pals.

This tank is designed with slits on the side, so you can really easily tie one side to achieve the super trendy knotted tee look.  I like having the do it yourself option, so you can tie as high or low as you prefer.  You can also leave it untied for an always chic tunic look.

Of course I had to pair this gray side tie tank with my white skinny jeans. I mean nothing pairs well with gray casual glam than chic white jeans.  Also, I have to mention that my necklace is currently marked down along with a few other favorites seen here on the blog.  I mean if you aren’t shopped out from the Nordstrom Sale, you should definitely check out some of these summer sale pieces!

Alright ya’ll, it is Style File Link Up day, so keep on scrolling and share your fabulous outfit ideas.  I can’t wait to see what you are styling this week.  Thanks for stopping by and have fab week!

Hello Ladies! Happy Friday!  I’m so ready for this weekend.  I’m headed to a really fun street type festival called White Linen Night on Saturday, and it should be lots of fun! Everyone wears white, walks around to check out local shops, and enjoys wine all with good friends.  It’s always a fun event and the perfect excuse to wear the dress from this post.

Ok so it may be casual Friday at work, but I’m still going to throw a little summer work wear at you today.  The fun thing about a Texas summer is that it’s 100 degrees outside and about 60 inside. 🙂  I like to try and find summer work clothes that work with both hot and chilly temps.  This sleeveless sweater is the perfect example of that kind of piece.  It is warm and cozy for the office, but it’s sleeveless for when I have to step outside on my lunch break or for happy hour.

Not only is it perfect for summer, but it’s going to work for fall too giving me more use out of it.  This work outfit could work for both summer and fall.  I mean our fall is still on the warmer side.  For a more casual look, you can pair this top with jeans and boots or booties for a weekend date night look.

Ya’ll only one more weekend to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Prices will go up on Monday, so be sure to get all your last minute orders in by Sunday night.    You can find some of my favorite picks and links to all my sale related outfit posts HERE.  Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!!
