Five Friday Favorites - My Fall Wardrobe is WAITING

I don't know about you but I'd really, really like it feel like fall.  I have an entire wardrobe waiting for you all to see in my #OOTD but the weather is not cooperating.  For this week's Five Friday Favorites, I'm sharing the items I can't wait to wear as soon as the temperatures start to drop -

#1 - Sweater Skirt
I feel like I bought this J.Crew skirt months ago.  It's SO comfortable and flattering.  I can't wait to wear this one to work.  Fit is true to size.

#2 - Fall Eyelet Top
I love EVERYTHING about this Target top - the eyelet pattern, ruffle neckline and perfect fall color.  Fit is true to size.

#3 - Jumpsuit 
Who doesn't love a good jumpsuit.  Normally the jumpsuits I wear are pretty fancy for wedding or more formal events but this one from Target can definitely be work appropriate.  I love that it's long sleeve but it's not too.  Perfect material for fall weather.  And the length works for me when I have heels on.

#4 - Faux Suede Jacket
I've been wanting to try a suede moto jacket for a while now but didn't want to pay the price.  That was until I found this faux suede one from Amazon that's under $50!  There are several colors available but I went with army green because I thought it would work with a lot of what I have in my closet.  Fit is true to size.

#5 - Daily Ritual Hoodie
Truth with this hoodie is I bought it last year and then I bought another one during Amazon Prime Day.  It's SO soft and extremely comfortable.  Works great with leggings or jeans.  I sized up for a looser fit.  A bunch of colors available.  I have black and the black and white stripe.

Target Tuesday - September Try On

This try on is for all things fall but the weather around here sure isn't feeling like it.  Not sure when I'll actually be able to feature these looks in my #OOTD on Facebook and Instagram

Target has been knocking it out of the park lately with their work wear finds and here's another example.  LOVE this top.  The green color is PERFECT.  The big sleeves are so cute...and not too much because they gather at the wrists.  You can tie the top in a bow or let it go long.  It's also the perfect top for the holidays!!! Fit is true to size.

I love a good shirt dress and this one from the Who What Wear brand is perfect.  It's a nice sturdy cotton with super cute button details on the front.  Perfect for work or throw on some flats to dress it down.  Fit is true to size.

I love a good pullover sweater in the fall/winter months.  And this one from Prologue brand is super cute and SO soft.  Love that the sleeves are in between full length and three-quarter.  Other colors available but I'm partial to the blush.  Fit is true to size.

This is a super cute pullover.  Dress it up for work or go casual for weekend wear.  It's the perfect fall red color.  Love the slightly exaggerated bottom of the sleeve...not too exaggerated that it will get in the way.  It's just enough to make it fun.  Fit is true to size.  Definitely do the French tuck to give yourself some shape.

I'm a BIG fan of faux leather.  I have several faux leather jackets, skirts and leggings.  This one is so chic.  Perfect for work or a night out.  Will go with so many looks.  I styled it for a night out with bare legs but you can definitely pair with boots and our tights.  For work this would look super chic with a white button down instead of the top I'm wearing.  Fit is true to size.  

This A New Day dress reminds me so much of a favorite shift dress I got a few years ago from the Lush brand at Nordstrom.  Love this style as it's great to transition with bare legged, with tights or with boots.  I also love this wine color.  Fit is true to size.

Five Friday Favorites - Latest Sales

So many good sales on some of my favorite summer and fall transition pieces.  Recapping my five favorite here but make sure you check out Nordstrom's latest sale adds, especially all my favorites from the Gibson x HiSugarplum line.

#1 - Jack by BB Dakota top
LOVE this top!  The colors are so perfect for fall or spring. It runs a bit big so I'd recommend sizing up.  I'm in a small.  You definitely need a cami under it...I'm wearing this one in cream.

#2 - Gibson Living in Yellow Shorts
shirt / shorts / necklace / shoes (similar)

Love these shorts (along with the similar Hi Sugarplum ones).  Super comfortable and are a great fall transition with these still warm temps.  You can dress them up or down.  I usually size up one size for a looser fit.  And the shoes in this look also happen to be on sale!

#3 - Gibson One Shoulder Top

I LOVE this one shoulder top.  I wore it a ton this summer.  Was great on it's own with shorts or pants or you could dress it up with skirt.  Fit is true to size.  Other colors and prints available.  First time this has gone on sale and you should definitely snag it! 

#4 - Vince Camuto Sandals
These are the PERFECT fall transition sandal and they are SO comfortable.  Several colors available.  Fit is true to size.  And a bonus this dress also happens to be on sale too!!

#5 - LOFT Floral Dress

This is a super cute LOFT dress that you can really wear in three seasons - spring, summer and fall.  Great layered or on its own.  Love all the colors in the floral print.  Flattering with a tie waist.  Highly recommend.  And it goes great with the #4 on sale sandals.  :)

Five Friday Favorites - Animal Print

Animal Print is all over EVERYTHING fashion this fall so I'm sharing my favorites from several fashion categories - dresses, shoes, accessories and tops.  Check out this week's Five Friday Favorites!

#1 - J.Crew Dress
Animal print with a twist on this J.Crew dress.  LOVE the pops of light pink throughout.  This dress is SUPER flattering.  Love the shirt style and belt.  And of course the best part is that it has pockets!!  Winner, winner!

#2 - Target Slides and Ted Baker Pumps
I'm cheating a little and adding two here because well if you aren't a heels girl than I wanted to share a fabulous flat.  Let's start with the pump.  I'm a BIG fan of Ted Baker shoes for work.  They are pricey but they are worth it because they are comfortable.  I wore these the other day at work and was fine all day long which is incredible because it was the first time I was wearing them.  These snake skin are going to be on repeat this fall/winter to spice up my all black looks.

Second are these super cute and much more affordable slides from Target. They are really comfortable and go with so many things - work or play.  If animal print isn't your thing, they have a bunch of other colors and prints. 

#3 - Stella and Dot Clutch 
LOVE this clutch from Stella and Dot because of the pop of navy and orange in the stripe down the front.  This will go with SO many things.  Inside the clutch will fit everything you need and there's a built in wallet.  Highly recommend!

#4 - Look for Less Sweater 
I snagged this sweater as part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  It sold out really quickly and was barely restocked but lucky for you I found a FABULOUS alternative and a really great price point from Amazon.  If this print isn't for you, check out the other animal print options.

#5 - Stella and Dot Scarf
I was hoping this would have arrived before this post went up because I'm SO excited for it.  Should be here later today so stay tuned for a full review.  But this Stella and Dot scarf is the perfect fall/winter accessory.  I can't wait to pair this with my all black outfits.  Wear it as a wrap or a traditional scarf.  LOVE!

Dressing Room Diaries - September Amazon Try On

Amazon's Lark and Ro has become one of my go-to work wear brands.  Their dresses and tops are so cute and always a great price point.  I love this dress with a subtle print and it will transition nicely from fall (bare legs) to winter (tights and boots).  You can wear it on your own or pair it with a blazer or cardigan.  Fit is true to size.  Other color options available.

This is the perfect LBD (little black dress) for work.  The fit is on point, not revealing at all and you can pair it with a blazer or cardigan for layering.  What you can't see on this picture is the twist and key hole detail at the top giving it a little something extra.  My only complaint is that the length was a little long on me and I'd need to get it hemmed.  

I really wanted to like this dress.  I've been on the hunt for a dark green dress because I love the color over the holidays.  The overall fit of this dress was great except for the bottom.  I hated the slightly gathered bottom.  I don't think it's flattering on me at all.  What do you think?

This dress is SOOOO cute. Very comfortable and flattering. The only issue is that I got a defective one. The pockets were sewn completely wrong...they were completely off by at least 6 inches. It went back but I would definitely try it again when my size comes back in. Comes in other colors.

sweater / necklace / dress / booties (similar)

This sweater kept popping up for me as something I might like to buy so finally I decided to pull the trigger.  I wasn't sure how good the quality would be but I was pleasantly surprised.  I wear a lot of navy in the fall so this will be the perfect layering piece whether with a dress or pants.  Comes in other color options.  True to size.

You all know I love an all black look and this is going to be on repeat for me.  It's the perfect work look but could also be dolled up for a night out.  I love changing it up by playing with the shoes and accessories.  If black isn't your thing, try one of the other colors available.  Fit is true to size.  

This is a fabulous sheath dress for work.  It's from my favorite work clothes brand from Amazon, Lark and Ro.  It's extremely flattering and can be worn for most seasons.  Bare legs or with tights...on it's own or with a blazer.  True to size and several colors to pick from.

How cute is this sweater?!?!  It's such a fun piece for the cool fall and winter weekends.  Love the stars pattern.  It's a comfortable oversized look (true to size).  If black and white isn't your style, try one of the other color offerings.  

This is a FABULOUS faux suede moto jacket.  I can't believe it was under $40!!! I really, really wanted one of these during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale but didn't want to sped the money because I wasn't sure how much I was going to really wear it.   But with this price point I jumped at the chance.  Fit is fabulous and you can dress this up or down.  Lots of color to pick from.  Fit is true to size. 

Loving the style of this top.  Super cute ruffle sleeves with fabric detail across the front.  You can dress this up or down.  The color is way out of my comfort zone but I LOVE it.  Works well with my tan coloring.  Other colors available.  Fit is true to size.

I've really been lucking out with all the tops I've found on Amazon this year.  This one included.  Love the stripe with embroider detail.  I love that it's short enough that it will look great with shorts or pants.  Fit is true to size.  Other color options available.

Another work dress from Lark and Ro for the win.  Made of a great ponte material and I love the gathered three-quarter sleeve.  Works now with bare legs and will transition to winter with tights and/or boots.  Comes in some print options but I went with basic black.  Fit is true to size.  

Snuggly sweater weather will be here before we know it and this one is SOOO perfect for those cold winter nights.  Love the green (great for the holidays) and it has a super cute chunky knit.  Fit is true to size.  Other colors available.

Super cozy sweater from Amazon.  Not the best quality but a great one for bumming around the house or having on hand at your office for those chilly days.  It's very oversized so if you don't want that look consider sizing down.  LOTS of colors to pick from

My ONLY real fail from this try on...and it's not really a fail more of a just doesn't work for my body type (which is a bummer because it's super cute)
I really, really wanted this top to work because of love this style (faux wrap with high/low hemline) but it was HUGE on me.  The style is amazing but definitely size down.  There are two other colors available.  Another great one for work or play.  Would look fab under a blazer.

Dressing Room Diary - Gibson Safari Collection

Another fun collection from Gibson...this time it's all about the wild and their take on fabulous fall animal prints, with a twist.  Lots of really cute items, especially work and day to night pieces.

I absolutely LOVE this dress.  It's the perfect fall maxi.  Love the twist on the animal print with the warm fall red colors.  Comes in petite but I still needed heels for the length.  Fit is true to size.  Other print and solid black are also available.  

Perfect tank to transition from summer to fall.  Love the scalloped detail on the neckline.  Wear it alone or pair it with a blazer or faux leather jacket.  You can wear this for work or play.  Fit is true to size.  Other colors available.

This is a super cute top that could be dressed up for work or dressed down with jeans for the weekend.  Sleeves are adjustable if you want to take it to three-quarter length.  Buttons all down the front.  Fit is true to size.  More traditional animal prints also available.

I'm obsessed with the lace detail on this top.  It's the PERFECT fall color.  And it will look great layered just like the one above.  Doesn't come in petites but that's fine the regular size fits true.  Also comes in peach and black.

tank / skirt / shoes (similar)

Take a walk on the wild side with this super cute animal print skirt.  I love the a-line style.  If animal print isn't your thing there are two solid color options.  Comes in petite options too!  Fit is true to size.
