Good Morning everyone! The Shopbop end of season sale is here and the website is full of great deals and super cute looks for fall. Currently the weather here is weird and unpredictable but that shouldn’t stop you from wearing knits and leather jackets. Also, if your office is anything like mine it’s really cold because the AC is on full blast. I picked out some affordable items from really good brands so scroll through and buy something for yourself. You deserve it!

We’ve made it to Friday so it’s time for my 2nd installment of weekly roundup. I got back from Nashville last Sunday and I’m still tired. Coming back from a trip and jumping back into your regular schedule is the hardest. I do miss all of the food we had there and the biscuits, OH MY GOD THE BISCUITS! I can’t even explain how good they were. I’m really starting to like these weekly roundup post. It gives me an excuse to talk about fashion and lifestyle all the time!
Anything involving food and drinks I’m going to show up for. I had the opportunity to try samples from restaurants in the Seaport area like Sweetgreen, Strega Waterfront, Sapore restaurant and bar, Wagamama and many more. Wagamama had this beef brisket sample that was OUT OF THIS WORLD! And By Chloe, your ice cream and chocolate chip cookies were absolutely delicious.
Hearst announced this news on Tuesday the 12th. She was the creative director for Elle so I’m excited to see how she can take this magazine to the next level.
Editors and publishing houses did not want to hop on board with the Influencer trend a while ago. Now they’re embracing what Influencers can do for their business. Micro-influencers are also taking over the industry. Their smaller audience tends to have more of an impact on readers which leads to better engagement.
4.College Fashion Week
I’m headed to College fashion week this weekend and I got the chance to treat myself to a fall fashion haul which was a gift from Primark. I’m completely set on fall clothing this season and I couldn’t be happier.
5. Weekend sales!
This weekend Loft is having a sale with items up to 40% off. Check out my picks down below.
6. The best street style from NYFW – Images from The Cut
I enjoyed keeping up with NYFW this year. The weather was beautiful so people really went all out when it came to their outfit choices. The Cut has a great slideshow of Street Style outfits. The photo below is of Tiffany Hsu

Summer isn’t over for me. I refuse to believe that it’s August and in a few weeks September will be here. I bought a few sweaters during my trip to Toronto because it was so cold up there! But I knew I had to take full advantage of this dress before it was too late. I stopped by the Market Street Lynnfield Outlets with my mom a few weeks ago and of course, we went into Loft. We always seem to find our way into a Loft store and we always leave with something new. My style has definitely changed over the past few months, I’m really into the preppy look right now and I’m not sure why. Loft sizes run really small so I got this dress in a size two. I’m normally a size 4-6 depending on the store. So make sure to try the dresses on before you purchase. My Asos shoes are a size 8. The shoe sizing at Asos is also kind of strange so I always get a size up just to be careful.
I never thought I would be able to pull off a dress with lemons on it but I really love this look! It’s so fun and colorful. You’re the best Loft! I can’t wait to see what the Fall/Winter collection looks like.
Hi, everyone! Welcome back to my DIY series. I made Caramel Latte Pops which would be perfect to serve at 4th of July Parties for a quick caffeine fix. Feel free to drizzle caramel syrup on top for extra flavor. I followed a recipe from the Chocolate Moosey Blog. I substituted Silk Caramel Almond Creamer and used Coffee Mate- Natural Bliss Caramel Almond milk creamer. Feel free to use less sugar based on your taste. All of the holiday decorations are from Walmart. I’ve never made popsicles before, it’s so fun to see the end result. These molds cost $6.99 on Amazon when I purchased it but they have gone up in price. But you can find cheap ones if you keep searching. What do you guys think? Would you try these? Let me know in the comments.

My perfect summer weekend outfit includes a lightweight dress, sandals, and simple accessories. Since this heat wave isn’t breaking I’ll keep this dress streak going and post this new lace dress I bought on my birthday. I wore it for the first time to the garden party at the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum which was the perfect place for it. Third Thursdays is all about live music, drinks, and a chance to view the beautiful art Isabella Stewart Gardner collected. Her history is amazing and if you ever get the chance to visit I’m sure you’ll fall in love.
I also bought these lace up sandals in the clearance section for $13, the brand is Zigi Soho. I linked some similar styles below. I read on Whowhatwear.com that yellow is a hot summer trend right now so I guess I’m already on board. A few other trends include all white outfits, cat-eye sunglasses, and basket bags. What’s your favorite summer trend right now? Let me know in the comments below?
Here’s to another month filled with my favorite pins on my Currently Coveting board. This month I’m all about Stripes and I have to admit I was a little jealous when I missed National Stripes Day which is J.Crews very own holiday. For now I’ll just pin the hell out of my Pinterest board and look for some cute tops to buy. My favorite is number 1. The color is perfect for spring and off the shoulder tops are still in right now. It’s also on sale right now for $54.99.
I currently own three striped tops, two are blue and white and the other is grey and white. My mini collection needs some color and I think the yellow and red tops would be the perfect. My ideal go to summer weekend look would be the yellow top paired high wasted denim shorts and espadrilles from Soludos. Number 5 is my second option and I would pair it with a short denim skirt and sandals. Which top do you like best? Let me know in the comments below.

My BaubleBar jewelry came in the mail! I’ve met a lot people who can’t stop raving about the website so of course I picked up some stuff for myself. I bought the Flamenco Drop earrings in Periwinkle and the Celestial Ribbon Choker. I wore my Flamenco Drop earrings to High tea and that was all I needed to dress up my outfit. The right accessories can make your outfit 100% better and the Flamenco Drops are so fun and colorful. I have my eye on the red Crispin Drops for the summer, they would go perfectly with my rompers and summer outfits. I wore my Celestial Ribbon Choker a few times and I’m in love with it. I was so late to the choker trend but now I’m fully on board and obsessed.
On another note, I broke out my slides again! These were definitely an impulse purchase from DSW as is everything else I get from there. The brand is Chinese Laundry and they’re very comfortable. I’m still into the slide trend and that’s not stopping for me anytime soon. Before you head out, click the link in my sidebar to check out the website and buy some stuff for yourself. BaubleBar has some really great deals so click the sale link first.
I’ve met a few people who tell me they love opening their windows in the fall because they sleep better that way. I do NOT like to be cold!! I love snuggling up in blankets and sweaters during the fall/winter months. I feel bad for anyone who has to touch me during the winter because my hands are like icicles. I’m currently on the hunt for new chunky sweaters and new places to buy them. Once you get in a routine and find the right stores to buy your clothes from it’s so hard to break that habit. Fall has finally set in and it came out of nowhere. I’ll be honest and say I wasn’t prepared at all. I felt that cold breeze and looked at the calendar and saw that October was here. Where did the year go?
Asos is my favorite online retailer so naturally half of my closet is packed with clothes from there. The point is I need somewhere new to buy my fall clothes! Even though I frequently shop at H&M, there’s a large selection of sweaters to choose from so I can always depend on that store. This chunky pink sweater looks so warm and cozy. I love thick turtlenecks so I can snuggle my face inside. I don’t shop at Free People but I really like this chunky sweater too. Where do you guys like to pick up your fall clothes? Leave some suggestions in the comments.
