Friday Favorites

J.Crew had a dress and top in this rainbow stripe fabric last year and they were both ill fitting. BUT this year it has returned at the factory store in a skirt style that I already own and know will fit well! I can't wait to wear it! Indy readers: Did you know that a factory J.Crew store opened on the north side? It's in the same plaza at Nordstrom Rack on 82nd street. It's so much more convenient for me than traveling to the outlets in Edinburgh.

Lately, I've been obsessing over slides and mules. I love all the new styles. I really want this pink Sam Edelman bow pair.

I love that denim skirts are back in style and would love to have an embroidered one.

A few years ago I saw a blogger wear a trench coat style dress and I have been trying to find one. J.Crew just released this pink one in their new arrivals this week. I hope I can snag it on sale for work this summer. It comes in a khaki color as well, but the pink is very on trend.

Jorts

I have never really liked wearing shorts. I much prefer dresses and skirts as they are more flattering on my legs, but as a mom I pretty much have to wear shorts in order to avoid wardrobe malfunctions. I usually wear the same cutoffs or navy chinos in the summer. This year I'm looking for a cuffed pair of jean shorts. I really love these high waisted distressed ones from JCrew! They are 40% off today, so I ordered 2 sizes to see how they fit. Here are some other options I'm looking at.

Bright Spring Colors

Spring is usually all about pastels, but I have always been a fan of bright colors! I have always gravitated towards anything with bold colors, (cobalt, sunshine yellow, fuchsia, emerald). I was all about color blocking when that was a trend a few years ago. I've moved on from that, but still love bright tops and dresses. Here are my current favorites.

Mara Hoffman yellow striped dress. Mara Hoffman bold striped dress. JCrew green gingham top. JCrew ruffled dress. Jeffrey Campbell blue mules. JCrew cluster earrings.

Wednesday Wishlist

I'm dying to shop for spring and summer weather clothing! My birthday is this month, so every year, I mentally (and on my blog) put together a wish list full of spring clothes and accessories that I am hoping for. I have been eyeing "mom jeans" for awhile and really want a pair of tried and true Levi's. I can't decide on jeans or jean shorts. I'm kind of obsessed with this embroidered clutch purse. I think it looks vintage and like something my mom would have in her collection of purses. I have a thing for colorful stripes and think this crochet top is adorable! I've been eyeing new sunglasses (see what I did there ;)) and like a rounded tortoise shell frame. I like the rose color of these lenses. I've already posted this dress, but I keep coming back to it and thinking of all the great accessories that would go with it. I really need some new flats for work and I really like the Kelly and Katie brand from DSW. I love these blush colored ones and know they will be comfortable as I have a few other pairs of shoes from that brand. They are a good deal for only $39. I'm also looking for a bright colored new statement necklace and floral cell phone case.

Embroidered

Embroidery is a big trend right now. Here are some of my favorite pieces. I love all the tops, but also wouldn't mind rocking a jean skirt again!

Friday Favorites - Steals and Deals

I have been trying to watch what I spend lately and have only made a few clothing purchases this year. I always find winter to be a boring time to shop anyway and am always looking forward to spring. Over the last few weeks I have hit the jackpot with a few deals that I couldn't resist! I have seen several fashion bloggers wearing this ruffle top. It's adorable and can be found on Shopbop for $100, Chic Wish for $50 and Amazon for $25! So I promptly bought the Amazon prime version and plan to wear it for my birthday in March! Another Amazon purchase I made were these perforated peep toe booties. I love the gray color and I bought mine for $20! Amazon confuses me with their pricing because they are now $44, but still a good deal. They are super comfortable and I have worn them a few times since our weather has been unseasonably warm lately.

I mentioned last week that I needed a few new sweatshirts to replace my college ones. I bought this coral one from H&M a few weeks ago and I'm embarrassed to say how often I've already worn it! It comes in 7 colors and is only $12. It's perfect for winter or spring.

I also bought this IND hat for $17 on sale at South Boutique. It's sold out there, but you can find it at Fira Boutique or the Aviate website for $35. The Aviate site has several other cities and color options. They even have children's sizes.

Lastly, I got these silver mules for Christmas from Express. I haven't been able to wear them until recently and I LOVE them! They are so comfortable and look adorable for work.

Update! I just found the striped ruffle top in pink and red stripe too! $21 from A'GACI
