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.
These photos were taken on a really really humid day here in Boston. Even an outfit like this was too much! But I love this skirt and I wanted to share it. I purchased it from Primark a year ago and it’s still in good shape. Happy Friday everyone!
I purchased a gingham dress a few months ago and it just didn’t look great on me at all. I get so envious when I see people wearing the print and it just works for them. I put together some of my favorite looks from my Pinterest person style board. I really want to buy the pants in image 6 for the fall and blazer in image 1. I think I might give this look a try again in the fall. This summer I’m really into bold prints and bright colors.
I eventually need to stop buying summer clothes and look into transitioning my closet. I can picture myself wearing the pants in image 6 with a lightweight sweater and cute loafers. And I’ll probably pair the outfit with some accessories from Baublebar. Which item is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.
I was provided compensation to shop at a Local Savers store. All opinions are my own*
Thrifting is a fun and I will always take the opportunity to shop for great clothes at discounted prices. Savers recently released its 2017 State of Reuse report examining perceptions around clothing consumption and reuse. 63% of Boston respondents admitted that they still throw their clothes away in the trash. Which is 9% higher than the national average. That blows my mind! Unless the clothing is destroyed you should always donate! My boyfriend and I just dropped off a ton of old clothes and bags to Savers recently. The sidewalk outside of the store was filled with donations.
Donating is a great way to give back to your community. You can always help a family in need. I bought these two dresses and this white top at savers and I spent about $25. What are some of your favorite stores to thrift shop at? Let me know in the comments below!
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?
10 days until the 4th of July so it’s time to figure out what you’re going to wear to BBQs and events. There’s a ton of weekend sales happening right now at some of my favorite shopping spots so I linked some stores below and the promo codes. Also, check out some of my favorite looks from the sales. I love the H&M Maxi Dress and the tasseled earrings from Neiman Marcus Last Call.
June is almost here and it’s my birthday month! A majority of my looks will be dresses and skirts just so you know. I wanted to share this dress from H&M I purchased a few years ago that I just found in my summer clothes bin. I love a form fitting dress with a little bit of flare. The shoes are my rose gold flats from Primark. Shop similar styles below!
Bell sleeves are my favorite and these two tops are my go to shirts for spring. This pink Asos shirt is still available on the website for $20. Click here to buy one for yourself or check out other bell sleeve looks. I just got this top from Zara last week and it cost $49.90. It’s cute right? Ever since I bought my yellow J.Crew coat I fell in love with the color.
Click the links below to shop and get your wardrobe ready for Spring! My favorites are the Soprano white off the shoulder top, and the DL1961 denim top. Let me know which tops are your favorites in the comments below.
So far I’m loving the weather in August and I hope it stays like this until mid-September. My favorite part about August is when the sun goes down and there’s a cool breeze that reminds me that fall is very close but NOT that close you know. My heart broke a little when I saw Halloween decorations out in TJ Maxx! I’m really not ready for summer to end I want it to last forever. I’m trying to enjoy my weekends as much as I can before I have to bundle up again for a few months.
Last Sunday Newbury Street shut down the roads allowing pedestrians to walk in the street. If you’re from Boston you know how annoying the sidewalks on Newbury Street are during the summer. Packed with people and tourist, it’s awful if you’re there to do some serious shopping. It was the perfect summer day for lunch outside and a walk through the park. This Primark dress was only $9 and the shoes were $19. The purse is from Asos, I bought it a few years ago but Asos has really good deals when it comes to their purse selection.
I really fell in love with these Primark platforms in the store. I think the peach color is perfect for summer and it makes your pedicure look 100 times better. Where did you guys pick up your favorite little white dress? I would love to know!!
