FALL DENIM WITH EXPRESS

First of all, I’m sooo excited to be an #ExpressPartner! I’m working with Express to share some of their new styles from their Petite Collection over the next few months and I can’t wait to share all of my fabulous finds with you all. I’ve shopped at Express for years and it’s great that they have expanded their petite line to carry so many versatile and everyday pieces. Today’s post is all about denim and with Fall right around the corner, I’m already transitioning to darker denim styles. This affordable pair (only $40 right now!) of mid rise distressed ankle jeans is super petite friendly and not to mention incredibly comfy. I can see these jeans as a Fall staple – wearing them with cute booties, cozy sweaters and Fall jackets. I especially love the distressed look of these jeans with the slits hitting in all the flattering places. All Express jeans are currently 50% off so I’d hurry and snag up a few of these Fall essentials!

FALL TRANSITIONAL ITEMS

It’s hard to believe mid August is already here! With Fall right around the corner, I’m looking to add versatile Fall transitional pieces to my closet. Perfect Fall transitional items are easy-to-wear pieces that can also be layered to create looks suitable for the Fall climate. I love adding Fall colors to my wardrobe in hues of olive, grey and brown. When looking for essential closet pieces, I always go to Nordstrom for their wide selection of trendy and classic everyday pieces. One of my favorite finds from their site was this olive jacket in the perfect shade for Fall. The jacket is not too heavy so I actually see it as an amazing year-round piece for my closet. Plus it comes in size XXS! Another great for Fall are the grey mules I purchased from Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. The mules are no longer on sale but they are still at a great price and they are as comfy as they are cute! I’m always finding the cutest shoes for the season from Nordstrom!

BIRTHDAY GREEN

It’s my birthday and I’ll wear green if I want to! :). I usually don’t wear a lot of green but whenever I do, I always wonder why I don’t wear more of the gorgeous color. I just adore all of the pretty lace dresses from ASOS and instantly fell in love with this off the shoulder lace midi dress in the prettiest shade of emerald green. I love the midi lengths ASOS carries – you might remember me in this pink lace midi dress in this blog post HERE. They have so many gorgeous styles in this type of lace – check out the end of my blog post for some of my favorites!

ASOS GINGHAM TWO PIECE

Summer is still going strong, especially in Southern California! It’s been quite hot and humid lately so I’ve been surviving in lightweight cute summer pieces like this adorable two piece gingham set from ASOS. Not only does ASOS has a great selection of trendy and affordable summer pieces but I especially love shopping on their site because of their petite sizing. Other cute gingham styles I found from ASOS include this darling pink gingham set, this easy-to-wear gingham romper and the cutest off the shoulder gingham bikini!

WHITE JUMPSUIT

One of my favorite #ootd to wear for the summer is an all white look. An all white look can be incredibly fresh and chic. I also find wearing the same color head-to-toe is flattering and elongating. So when I discovered this fun and frilly white jumpsuit, I knew I just had to have it! When my husband saw me in it, he immediately said “well don’t you just look like a boss lady!” lol. This modern twist on the power suit is also very versatile as you can wear this look during the day or the evening. If you don’t own a white jumpsuit, I suggest you find one and put one on – it’s incredibly empowering!

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE RECAP

Hey guys! So I just received a ton of my NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE purchases in the mail and wanted to do a quick recap on some of them. We just moved into our new home and found some good light in my bedroom to do some quick selfies. To get the item I have recapped – just click on the linked keywords or scroll to the bottom for the photos and direct links.

Ok the first is just a basic white v-neck tee, which I love because you can layer it with everything! It’s from a brand called LUSH, which I love (and which we also sell at Morning Lavender). The tee is super soft and easy to wear and plus it’s $15. Comes in other colors as well!

SUMMER YELLOW ROMPER

With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale going on right now, I’ve been stocking up on a lot of great Fall pieces on sale. I don’t think I’ll get to wear these pieces for a while as it’s been so incredibly warm in SoCal. Instead, I have been living in rompers almost everyday. If you have been following my blog, you know that I love how comfortable and easy to style rompers are. I found this darling romper with just the perfect pop of color for the summer. And although it’s not a part of the #NSale, it’s already affordable at just under $50! You’ll find more of my favorite affordable summer rompers at the bottom of this post!

SUMMER WEDDING GUEST STYLE

Just wanted to start off by saying THANK YOU to everyone who has wished me well this past few weeks. I felt a bit overwhelmed most of June from being sick, to our big home move (and remodel) and tackling all of these incredibly exciting (but stressful) projects happening for work. I decided to take a brief break from blogging as I regathered myself emotionally. I feel so much better after a much needed break and extra support from family and friends during this stressful period. I didn’t want to stay away for too long as there are just so many cute summer clothes and amazing sales that are about to happen! So I’m back – recharged, re-energized and ready with a closetful of goodies to show you ;). I will also be back with some more Bosslady Lessons so stay tuned for that as well!

Now that July is here and summer is in full swing, I’m posting some great summer wedding guest outfits. I wore this super cute and super comfy ruffle maxi jumpsuit to a wedding a few months ago and the shorts underneath definitely made getting my groove on a whole lot easier ;). I just love the ruffle detail on this jumpsuit and how nicely the whole thing flows. Keep in mind the top part is sheer so make sure you get one of these backless sticky bras (one of my undergarment must haves).
