gray distressed jeans pink turtleneck sweater

Sweater: Vince Camuto turtleneck vest (XXSP) | Jeans: Express (00p) | Shoes: BP. Tale 2 slides | Purse: Sole Society

If you need some gray distressed jeans, these Express jeans come in regular and petite sizes! The petite inseam is perfect for short legs.  I got 00 petite and they fit perfectly with no cuffing needed.

This Vince Camuto turtleneck vest is part of the Nordstrom anniversary sale but I haven’t gotten around to taking a selfie with it on to show you what it looks like but it does run small. It says online to size down but based on the petite size, I thought it ran small.

I had high hopes for this Sole Society faux leather and suede bag but it’s really big.  A bit overwhelming on a petite frame.  The price is great but I didn’t love it so it’s going back.

Sweater: Free People (size XS) | Bralette: Free People | Jeans: 7 for all mankind (similar HERE) | Shoes: Vince Camuto Fileana split shaft booties

This Free People pullover sweater keeps popping back up in different colors and sizes but in all honestly, it’s kind of pricey. It’s nothing to get that excited over and sizing runs large. I do love the rose color I’m trying on but other than that, I think there’s better sweaters out there for much less.

Top: June & Hudson ruffle sleeve lace tee (size small) | Tank: Abound (size XS) | Skirt: Painted Threads scalloped skirt (XS) | Shoes: Cole Haan Gabby mule | Purse: c/o Boho Peach picnic bag | Necklace: Loft outlet (similar HERE)

I’m working on a project with Nordstrom Rack and was doing some shopping online and omg – so many goodies to share.  I found tons of scalloped items. I know I know…how many scalloped pieces does one girl need? Um clearly not enough (lol).

I also got this scalloped dress in white and pink (more colors HERE) – so cute and under $45!  In full disclosure I haven’t been able to try on any of the items I got – it’s been so crazy with the Nordstrom anniversary sale that everything else has taken a back seat.

Top: c/o Striped ruffle button up (size XXS) | Skirt: c/o Chambray ruffle skirt (size XXS)

I love this striped ruffle top and chambray ruffle skirt so much!  The photo does not do the top or skirt any justice.  The top runs very small so I’d recommend sizing up if you have a larger chest.  It’s nursing friendly and love the ruffle detail.  Super cute for work or wear it casually with jeans/shorts.

This chambray ruffle skirt is too darn adorable! It even has pockets (yay!). The length hits me right at the knees so it’s not too short. It’s supposed to be mini length but someone my height (5′ tall), it’s perfect.  Sizing runs small and there is no stretch so I’d recommend sizing up if you are in-between sizes. Both the top and skirt fit similar to a 00 petite. Love and would recommend!

brown over the knee boots chunky knit sweater fall outfit

Sweater: Ann Taylor (old) | Leggings: Ann Taylor (similar HERE on sale) | Boots: c/o Goodnight Macaroon (on sale, gray HERE or black HERE)

Remember these tan over the knee boots? Well they are back in stock and 40% off through 7/30 w/code ANNIVERSARY! See my review HERE on how they compare to the Stuart Weitzman Highland boots.

I haven’t shopped at H&M in forever and recently found some good stuff!  I got this scalloped tank in pink and white (only $12.99), fine knit top ($17.99) and scalloped coat (so cute and under $50) – will review all of these soon!

halter top sweater distressed jeans nude sandals casual summer outfit

Sweater: Fine knit top (XS, worn with this strapless bra) | Jeans: Free People | Shoes: c/o kate spade

Here’s one of my H&M purchases and I’m in love! This fine knit halter top is adorable.  The cut is very flattering.  Sizing runs very small so I’d recommend sizing up.  I’m wearing XS and it fit perfectly.  The material is slightly sheer and pretty thin but it’s not bad.  This is from the divided section (juniors) so everything is cut much smaller than women’s. Looks great with jeans or tucked in a skirt for work. It’s only $17.99!  Would highly recommend.
