Classic White Shirt On A Farm

Top: Old Navy / Jeans: Old Navy / Wedges: Nina Shoes / Necklace: Forever 21 / Clutch: Vintage (my grandmother) / Sunnies: Kate Spade

You all have seen some images from AuerFarm before, it is the amazing 4-H farm next to my parents house in Connecticut. We get our Christmas tree here every year, they also have blueberry and raspberry picking throughout the summer. I love going there to see the animals in the barn that is always open for people to pop into. The grounds are amazing and they also often hold educational and fun field trips for children! Such a great thing for the community. I try to stop over here as often as I can when I come to visit my parents, there is just something so wonderful about farms. I really would love to live on a farm, or maybe I did in a past life?

There is nothing better than a simple outfit pumped up with some leopard. Leopard makes pretty much any outfit better to be honest. I love these Nina wedges because they are casual and super comfortable but give you just the right about of height and extra oomph you need in a simple outfit. Add a bold lip and your out the door. I really think the goats were digging it... =)

When this post goes live I will be either wandering aimlessly in the Amsterdam airport or on the plane on my way to Germany -- Hope you all have a great Tuesday or Monday night or whatever the heck say and time it is where you are!

Pencil Skirt & Chambray Shirt

Top: American Eagle / Skirt: JCrew (old) / Sunglasses: Vintage / 
Shoes: Ann Taylor / Purse: Michael Kors / Bracelets: Alex & Ani

Well it was another beautiful fall weekend in New England. I spent my weekend in CT helping my parents clean out my grandmothers house. She has always been a collector of well, everything. Some pieces worth collecting, some maybe not so much but it made her happy and at the end of the day that's all that matters. While it is a lot of work and we are still not close to being done, we all got a good laugh out of looking through her old photos and toys we remember playing with when we were young. I  also came across three pairs of sunglasses! How fab are these vintage sunnies I am wearing! Thanks Gram! My hubby was working this weekend so my mom helped me out and she was my wonderful photographer..thanks mom! Oh and I dyed my hair last night, lush cherry. Undecided on it. 

Do you have a chambray shirt? Because if not you need one right now, you can literally wear it with so many different outfits, from jeans and skirts, to dresses and shorts. Buttoned, un-buttoned with a tee, tucked, un-tucked, over your shoulders, and tied around your waist the options are endless. This one I found was $39 from American Eagle if you are looking for a new one this one is great and has snap buttons -- which I love, because I am old and don't like buttoning buttons! HA!

Bold Yellow Jacket

Jacket: Sheinside / Top: Zara (old) / Jeans: Old Navy / Booties: Ivanka Trump via Nordstrom / Clutch: TJMaxx / Necklace: Target / Sunnies: Kate Spade

I bought this Jacket (p.s. it is $27) over the summer when I did a big order from sheinside. I like to order at least a few items when I order from there seeing as it takes a little while for stuff to get delivered. I have had this jacket on my rack of "need to wear this" in my "closet" aka our spare bedroom. I put it on many times over the summer then start sweating and took it off. I was perusing through pinterest and saw a outfit similar to this and immediately felt the need to wear my awesome yellow jacket...right meow! This jacket is very similar to Zara jacket that I feel like every blogger but me owns. So, when I saw this on sheinside's website I had to have it. Not to mention yellow is my fav color, but believe it for not I really don't have a lot of yellow in my closet. 

Happy Friday all! I am spending the weekend helping my mom clean out my grandmothers house.  It will be quite interesting -- she loved trinkets to say the least! Then I will be spending next week in good ol' Germany for work. Don't worry I will still have posts for you!

Banana Republic Leather Skirt & Plaid Shirt

Top: Old Navy / Skirt: Banana Republic / Shoes: Sam Edelman(old - so glad I kept them) / Necklace: Nordstrom / Sunnies: Ray Ban / Bracelets: Alex & Ani

When did it become summer in Boston? It has legit been almost 80 these past few days, like seriously my body is so confused. My office is negative degrees and I go for a walk at lunch and I am sweating! Speaking of, did you see during my walk yesterday I ran into some elephants? I am totally not kidding! They were so freaking cute -- and they were holding each others tails!! I literally died inside. Check out my instagram to see the pic of the four cuties walking down the streets of Boston

Anywho, have you guys had a chance to check out Banana Republic lately? If you go to the mall you need to pop in, they have totally revamped with a new look and I am LOVING it, I wish I had an unlimited amount of money to spend in there, I would buy one of everything for both me and hubby. The first time I went back in I was so excited I was taking photos of all the mannequins because I wanted to copy all of the looks. I picked a few pieces while I was there this leather skirt and a to die for moto jacket which you will see soon I'm sure. The skirt fits so well, is so perfect you could totally wear it 3 times a week and never run out of pieces to wear it with. If you do not have a black leather skirt in your closet, you need to run, not walk to the nearest BP and pick this one up! Banana Always has the best sales too -- so keep your eye out and you can get these dreamy pieces at really great prices. Side note -- this top is only $15 -- yea you need this too.

Top 10 Old Navy Must Haves

Old Navy Must Haves
Leather Skirt $20 / Leopard Skirt $20 / Plaid Dress $22 / Chambray Shirt Dress $19 / Black Dress $39 / Plaid Shirt $24 / Black & White Tunic $15 / Baseball Tee $15 / Zip Front Jacket $39 / Boyfriend Jeans $34

It is Old Navy's 20th Birthday! YAY!-- I have always been a huge Old Navy fan -- lately they have really stepped up their game, for example partnering with Refinery 29 to show you their top pics (All of my top 10 are from there list). Over the past few years Old Navy has been one of my go to stores a large quantity of my closet is from there especially their RockStar Jeans -- they are amazing and you can often find them for like $15 a piece -- umm I will take 10!  I have also purchased most of the pieces on this list (don't tell my husband) except for the boyfriend jeans, because if I come home with another pair of boyfriend jeans or just jeans in general my husband may disown me.

I often get compliments on my outfits and when people find out I bought the piece at Old Navy they gsap, then I know the secretly go home, look it up and buy it too. It's OK, I am not ashamed of my amazing bargain hunting skills and finding pieces for low prices that look like they are top end. That is what fashion and style is all about for me. If you are not a sale hunter then you are wasting your money!  

P.S. Old Navy is having a sale on top of a sale. Get an extra 20% off -- 25% off if you spend $75, or 30% off if you spend $100. The sale is good until Thursday --
