Closet Staples: Olive Pants + Discount Code

Hey, y’all! I hope you’re having a good day.

Are you a colored pants kind of person? Other than black and white, olive pants are the most versatile to me, so that’s why they’re included in my closet staples series today.

I recently picked up this pair from Downtown Allie. They’re super stretchy, making them super comfortable. Additionally, they maintain their shape throughout the day, which is a win-win in my book.

Some fool-proof pairings with olive pants are leopard, stripes, and cognac. You’ll notice pretty quickly how these items appear in each of my outfits.

Downtown Allie has a plethora of other colors in this style of pants, and if you use the code SARAH15, you can get 15% off your purchase.

Closet Staples: Cream Sweater

Happy Fri-yay! What are your plans for tonight? Daniel and I are going on a much needed date night, and I’m really looking forward to it!

I’m starting a new series devoted to closet staples. The items I’ll be discussing are ones that are versatile, timeless, and classy.

In a way, this will be similar to my capsule wardrobe, but this time, I’ll only be focusing on one item per post.

First up is this sweater. If you’ve been around here for a bit, you know I have a thing for Amazon. A person just can’t beat fast shipping, free returns, a plethora of options, and affordable prices.

I recently saw this sweater on Bittany, from Loverly Grey, on Instagram. She’s my favorite blogger and has the best style!

sweater / jeans / blanket scarf (similar) / booties / fedora

The neutral color of this sweater allows it to be paired with any colored bottom. It’s also a good piece to layer over dresses.

It’s also very soft and cozy and has bubble sleeves, though they’re more subtle than some sweaters.

What do you think about my new closets staples series? Are there certain items that you hope make it on the list?


Must Have Sneakers

How’s everyone’s Monday going?

Since becoming a mom two years ago, I have developed an appreciation for sneakers. They’re the perfect shoe to make a dressy outfit more casual, yet still allow me to chase Isaac around.

While there are a plethora of different designs and colors, I believe that every woman should have two sneaker styles: white and leopard/cheetah.

I recently discovered the band Blowfish Malibu, and I’m so glad I did! Their sneakers have elastic on top and a super soft insole, so they’re very comfortable if you’re on your feet a lot.

I also like how this brand’s shoes can be dressed up or down. Here are some different ways to wear them:

gray henley dress / mustard striped top (similar) / distressed shorts (similar) / Nike hat / leopard swing dress

cream tank (similar) / denim jacket (similar) / olive jeggings (use Sarah15 to get 15% off) / jumpsuit (similar) / coral shirt (similar) / olive henley dress

Which style do you prefer: white or leopard/cheetah?


Outfits of the Week (9/20-9/26)

Happy Saturday! I hope you’ve all had a good week and are enjoying your weekend.

Here’s a compilation of this week’s outfits. When possible, I linked the items I’m wearing. If something is old or sold out, I linked a similar piece.

leopard top – part of set (similar) / distressed jeans (similar styles) – use code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase / sandals

leopard cardigan – use code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase / peplum tank (similar) / black jeggings / flats

burgandy cardigan (similar) / blouse (similar, similar) / white jeggings / flats (Time and Tru from Walmart – check local store)

plaid button up (Time and Tru from Walmart – check local store) / black jeggings – use code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase / booties

sweater – use code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase / striped dress (similar) / booties (similar)

top (similar) / jeans – use code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase / booties (similar)

One thing you’ll notice is that, while I do buy new clothes, I also have certain pieces that are old, yet still functional. As a result, sometimes it’s hard to find the exact item. Additionally, I do shop at Walmart for clothes, and sometimes items are sold out online, but still available in the store, so I encourage you to always check there. I hope today’s post has been helpful!

The Sweater of My Dreams

Hey, everyone! I hope you’re doing well and enjoying the hint of fall that’s in the air. I know I am!

The cooler temps this week have gotten me in the fall mood. My official coffee creamer is now pumpkin spice, and I’ve started stocking up on sweaters.

I recently picked up this bubble sleeve, peplum sweater from Downtown Allie. The details are darling and the color is very versatile.

This is the type of sweater you want in your closet because it can be worn with colored pants for school teachers, pencil skirts for those with a professional work environment, or with blue jeans for date night. Check out my Instagram to see how I styled it for each occasion.

Downtown Allie also has tons of other cute sweaters, so I encourage you to check her site out. You can use the code SARAH15 at checkout to get 15% off your purchase.


Leopard Swing Dress from Old Navy

Happy Wednesday, ladies! I hope your week is going smoothly!

Today, I want to talk about a recent Old Navy find: this leopard print swing dress.

Old Navy is one of my favorite stores because their clothes are cute, comfy, versatile, and affordable.

I love this dress because of its versatility. The cut and fabric is suitable for warmer weather, yet the leopard print also transitions nicely into fall.

I love how you can totally change the look of this piece by adding a few accessories.

Waffles + DTA Turns 5 + Discount Code

Happy Friday! Does anyone else ever feel like the shortest weeks seem the longest?

Today I want to talk to you about waffle…cardigans! Downtown Allie has a great supply of these closet staples.

long waffle cardigan / henley tank / YMI jeggings / fedora (exact, similar) / booties (similar)

If you’re like me, and wishing for fall, a waffle cardigan is a great layer to add over your outfit, yet it won’t be as thick as winter sweater.

Additionally, Downtown Allie is having 5th anniversary on Saturday. There will be new arrivals, giveaways, and the first ten customers get a Downtown Allie gift card! Now that sounds like a good time.

If you’d like to visit her shop, you can use the code SARAH15 to get 15% off your purchase. My code works for her website, too.

Happy birthday, Downtown Allie!
