i had my eyes on these embroidered gap jeans for a few months before i finally pulled the trigger. distressed denim is my favorite denim, and the embroidered details set this pair far apart from my other jeans. gap actually still has my pair in stock in a lot of sizes-and if i did my math correctly, they’re on sale for right around $20. amazing. i’m currently on the fence about this pair.

i’ve talked about my workout routine a little here and here, but i really need whatever workout i’m doing to keep me entertained and not bore me. i don’t run as much as i want/used to, but lately i’ve been trying to squeeze in a short jog at least once a week just to take advantage of the not winter we seem to be having here in tennessee. it just seems like a waste not to you know?
this is the kind of thing you can get away with wearing when its 70 degrees in january. i own exactly two off the shoulder tops. both of them are pinstriped. both of them are from j.crew. basically, i bought the short sleeved version of this shirt back in the fall and loved it so much that i immediately snagged the long sleeved version when i saw it in store. if you love something, buy multiple versions of it right?

happy last three day weekend until april, y’all. what better way to celebrate than to shop?!
j.crew: up to 70% off original prices with the code SHOPNOW
my love and devotion to j.crew is unending. though there aren’t a ton of noteworthy new arrivals right now, there is SO MUCH goodness in the sale section. and some literal steals. a $4 phone case. my favorite swim suit top for $10 (i already had this is white, and i just ordered it in black and navy). the classic field jacket for nearly half its original price. great prices on the new balance x j.crew line. i’m in love with everything and it was hard to choose, but i ended up ordering this crop top since its so unique and out of my comfort zone. j.crew is also discontinuing their wedding line (so upsetting), so there’s amazing deals on their bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses right now. if i were to do my wedding all over, i would wear this simple, dreamy gown.
banana republic: 40% off full priced items and 50% off sale with their “not your average sale” event
banana is pretty hit or miss for me, but when they hit, they HIT. i actually went in the store over the weekend and was amazed at how many things i fell in love with. i tried on these jeans and was OBSESSED. i didn’t pull the trigger on them because i already have a great pair of light wash raw hem jeans (seen here and here), but if i can’t get this pair off my brain by the end of the day i’m going to have to order them. i love the button detail on this sweater so much. these shoes were marked down to $33 in store, so if you like them its worth going to the closest banana republic to find them. so many classy trends in one shoe-i love them. this is such a fun cami and could pair with so many things you already have in your closet. i’m a firm believer that leopard is a neutral.
nordstrom rack: surprisingly, they’re not doing clear the rack this weekend. however, there are TONS of great markdowns right now.
i bought these booties this week after seeing them on one of my friends and i LOVE them. they’re SO comfortable and they look so much more expensive than $40. i am in love with every pattern/color of this rash guard. i should probably just go ahead and buy every option right?! you know, for all the surfing i do during the summer (HA!). this is such a great LBD and would be so easy to dress up or down. the perfect wildfox tee to go with my perfect wildfox sweatshirt. i’m kind of really loving this free people white jumpsuit/overalls situation. this donut phone case speaks right to my heart. this isn’t a steal necessarily, but definitely a great price on this suede fringe cape. i mean, all the praise hands and heart eyes.
other sales: old navy is doing 30% your order and free shipping with an order $25 or more, anthropologie is still running their tag sale with an extra 40% off of sale items with the code TAGTIME, macy’s is offering an extra 25% off of clearance, gap is doing 40% off your purchase with the code GREAT, everything at j.crew factory is 50% off, and as always, nordstrom’s sale section is wonderful.
its crazy to think that these pictures were taken this time last week. i’m not sure what this tennessee winter craziness is, but i don’t exactly hate it because at least i got one snow day out of it. and yes, this is what i wear to go out in the snow because i live in tennessee and i know better than to invest in a heavy winter coat.
my plan was to share a list of my new years resolutions and goals today, but as it turns out i’m having a very severe case of writers block. if i’m being honest, its more like a creative block. i’m having a really difficult time styling outfits, taking pictures, editing pictures, writing text, and anything else that goes along with trying to be a blogger. i know what i want to say, but i don’t know how to say it. and thats a theme thats stretching throughout my entire life right now. hopefully, a resolution post is coming soon. not for you guys necessarily, but for myself. i started this blog mainly to stretch myself and force myself to be confident and its kinda having the opposite effect at the moment.
thats a lot of honesty for your monday (if you could see my face as i’m typing i’m making a really awkward one), so here are my outfit details:
free people sweater, 7FAM jeans, dolce vita booties (similar)
considering french fries are my favorite food and taco bell is my favorite dinner spot, this sweatshirt was the perfect christmas gift. i love how oversized and roomy it is-perfect for a travel day or just being lazy.
