How to Look Chic in White Jeans During the Winter

I don’t like to give up white jeans in the Winter time– I believe there is a chic way to wear them all year round. My exact white jeans from Abercrombie are sold out, but hopefully this gives you an idea of what to do with the white jeans you already have in your closet. 🙂 Linking all of Abercrombie’s white jeans here. I highly recommend their “Curve Love” or “Mom Jean” options!

Here are some key tips that I take into account when creating an outfit with white jeans during this time of year:

  1. Add a white or off-white sweater for a chic, monotone base. A sweater with some texture or lines like this one will give the outfit depth.
  2. I love to add pumps to an outfit like this, but if it is colder where you are, you could opt for a sleek pair of booties like these.
  3. Layer on a tan or lighter colored coat to balance the outfit.
  4. Add pops of dark accessories like sunglasses and a black bag for contrast.
  5. Lastly, you can’t go wrong with stacking different types of gold jewelry to finish off your outfit. I especially love a classic gold watch with an outfit like this.

Let me know how y’all like to wear white jeans during the Winter, or if you are going to try it out after reading my blog post!

Cardigan Sweater / White Tank / Jeans / hat / Exact Booties / Similar Booties

Hey y’all! It’s been a while since I published a blog post! I thought that this post would be helpful for those of you who enjoy practical layering pieces that you can wear all season long. I own many of these pieces myself, and one of my favorite parts of shopping from Old Navy and Gap is the fact that they carry such a wide variety when it comes to sizing. Not only do all of their pieces come in XS to XXL, but many of them also have the option of petite, regular, or tall. This is so nice when it comes to sweaters and layering pieces to get that custom-tailored look. I ordered all of my items in a size XS regular, except for the denim jacket below (I ordered a small in this for a more oversized fit.) Many different outfit combinations can be made with just a few layering pieces. I hope you enjoy looking through the items I pulled. They are picky-girl approved. 🙂

I will be writing a separate blog post for different kinds of jackets soon, so stay tuned for that!

2020 Summer Essentials

2020 Summer Essentials

Shop these items:

 

We are at the beach for the week, so I thought it would be a good time to share all of the Summer items I’ve purchased this year with the beach being on my mind 24/7. A lot of them are great prices, and all of them are excellent quality! Stay tuned for more beach content this week. I’ll be styling these items and posting more outfits on my Instagram page + linking them in the LikeToKnow.it app. Feel free to follow along over there if you aren’t already. Linking my LTK profile here.

Denim Shorts: I did NOT want to love these shorts as much as I do because of the price tag. They are the most expensive item on this list, as well as the most expensive denim shorts I’ve ever purchased.  What I love about them, is how flattering the fit is. They don’t hug your thighs or butt too tight at all, which is what I prefer. Most reviews say that these “run big,” however, I ordered my normal size and they are perfect. They are high wasted, so shirts tuck in nicely, and they also look really great with crop tops or swim suits.  I know I will continue to wear these into the Fall with booties and cardigans, so they are a great investment.

Straw Hat:  Another item that I have had my eye on for a solid two years, but continued to buy target hats instead (those are totally great as well, don’t get me wrong!).  However, this hat is amazing quality and you can order your correct size for a more custom fit (not a one size fits all). For someone who loves straw hats as much as I do, this one is the top on my list. And, I have a lot of straw hats y’all!

Pink Bikini Set:  Both the top and the bottom I linked are the same exact pink color, although they do not look like it online! I just want to note that I have never been disappointed with the quality of swimwear that Nordstrom has to offer.  I’m the type that doesn’t want to spend an arm and a leg on a swimsuit, but I am also crazy picky about the fit and quality.  I could write a whole blog post on swimsuits alone with how many swimsuits I’ve ordered and sent back this year, let me tell ya. I am done with trying to “get a deal” on the “fast-fashion” sites for swimsuits.  This brand has my stamp of approval for sure.

Snakeprint Bottoms:  Some of you may think I’m crazy for this, but these bottoms were too loose on my hips when they came in, so I actually took them to the tailor because I loved the shape, coverage, texture, etc that much! I wanted to make them work. These are amazing quality and thank the lord for some cute bottoms with actual booty coverage lol.  They come in plain black and pink as well.  I ordered a small (my normal size in swimwear),  and they definitely run big.

Makeup Organizer: I can’t believe I have just thrown all my makeup and brushes in a bag whenever I traveled before ordering this this year.  Game changer for sure. There’s plenty of room for your compacts, palettes, and brushes.

Linen Boyfriend Shirt: This shirt ended up being exactly what I had in mind when I ordered it. I love the look of a linen shirt at the beach. So classic and timeless. This one is a great price too!

Beach Wrap: Y’all need this easy beach wrap from Amazon! I love the pom poms and it comes in multiple colors.

Daily SPF: This layers perfectly under makeup or by itself. This formula is actually for oily skin, so I just make sure I moisturize with another moisturizer beforehand, and I’m good! I love that it is a mineral sunscreen that isn’t greasy and doesn’t break me out. I’m going to order the glowy one next, and I’ll let y’all know how I like that one!

Hair Mask: This hair mask is so hydrating. I use a hair mask every time I wash my hair in place of regular conditioner, so I often try out new ones. I love this one ( I have dry/thick hair).  It smells amazing and makes my hair so so soft.

Bonus Items:

I also never go to the beach without packing this scrub. It helps to really take off all of the sunscreen at the end of the day. It is also really great at scrubbing away leftover spray tan! Smells so good too.

My two favorite sunscreens for the body linked here and here.

I am still a total fan of the Billie Razor too! It is all I use (I used to be addicted to a much more expensive razor).  I love that I don’t have to think about it, and I get razors sent to me every two months for only $9! You can customize how often you want new razor heads sent. I simply use Dove body wash to shave with, and it works perfectly.

This post is *not* sponsored. All items linked are products that I have purchased with my own money and I genuinely use. 🙂 I hope that this post was helpful for those of you who have been on the search for some of these staples! Let me know something that you have purchased this year for Summer that you love. I’d love to hear from ya!

 

Cheers,

All White LOOKBOOK

All White LOOKBOOK

Jeans // Hat // Sunglasses

Something I buy year after year when Spring comes around is crisp, white basics. There’s just something about classic white pieces. They are versatile, and can make your whole outfit look more fresh and put together.  That’s why I recommend buying new white pieces each year and replacing some of your older ones that maybe have seen better days.  It can really elevate your outfits and make your other pieces pop too. Old skirt? Add a fresh white crop top to it. Your fav pair of jeans? Add a new white t shirt and some jewelry.  Cute sundress? Add some white sneakers! Or, if you’re feeling the monochromatic trend, opt for an all white outfit. Super easy!

Here are some of my favorite white pieces + items that I have had my eye on / in my shopping cart. ☺️

Tops:

Bottoms:

Casual Dresses

Shoes

Swimsuits

 

 

I hope that y’all found this post helpful!  Let me know if you would like to see a post on dressier white dresses! Not sure how many 2020 brides I have out there, but that would be a fun post as well. Cheers to the weekend, ladies.  💕

Talk to you soon,

Olivia

 

The Perfect MOM Jeans

The Perfect MOM Jeans

Y’all… I found them. The most flattering and on-trend “Mom” jeans for this Spring and Summer. (and they are currently 25% off!) I have been so skeptical of this trend because I didn’t want to wear “baggy” jeans. Skinny jeans have always been my go to. However, these are fitted in the right places and just a little bit more roomy in the hip and thigh.  The best news: they come in regular, petite, and tall lengths + they have a curvy option that allows even more room if ya have a booty 😉.

62B112BB-A4D7-4F1E-816B-DFEF87999347

The FIT: I’m wearing a 25 regular length in both the light wash and white classic mom jeans here, which is my normal size. (I am 5″6). They are true to size in my opinion. I love that they still flatter your shape without being super skinny. I would describe the fit as a relaxed skinny jean.  They have a vintage stretch to them, which means they do not feel like leggings lol. So, if you are into suppperrr stretchy jeans, these aren’t it! They are 99% cotton and 1% elastane.

436B332C-3146-44CB-A221-546E7848DC1B

I still find them to be quite comfortable, and I can’t wait to style them with my Spring/Summer tops and sandals! I am linking the exact pair I’m wearing in these pictures below as well as some of the other combinations that I love.

Vacay-Ready Jumpsuits to Transition into Spring

Vacay-Ready Jumpsuits to Transition into Spring

If you’re like me, this weather in NC right now has you dreaming about a Spring vacay and a littleeee bit of color in your wardrobe. Last week on my Instagram post, a ton of you told me you were going on trips this Spring!  I know I’ve had a trip to Charleston or Nashville on my mind when the weather warms up. Of course, planning for any sort of trip, it’s always fun to add a little something to your closet. 🙂  I have put together 10 different jumpsuits suitable for vacay or simply as transition pieces for the warmer weather ahead. 🌴☀️ Just add a denim jacket for now, and you’re all set.  Just click any jumpsuit below to instantly shop. I hope everyone is having a great week so far!

 

 

 

Staple Boots For Fall

IMG_1734

If Fall boots have been on your mind, you are in the right place. I am always so excited to pull them out each year and add to the collection.  A different type of boot can change your outfit entirely.  I’m here to talk about Fall boots that I truly love to create outfits with, where to get them, and how to style them (I’ve narrowed it down to 5 different types).  I’ll be linking some exact boots from my pictures and some that are verryy similar if I’m unable to find the exact pair.  I hope you enjoy another Fall outfit themed blog post from me!  To shop these items, simply click the picture of the specific boot you want to shop below, and it will take you directly to that retailer.

IMG_1467I’ll start with my most recent addition to the fam: the Winona Bootie. I had my eye on these for almost two months before ordering them, and I am so glad that I did. They are so perfect.  I love the slight detail across them that make them different than all the other taupe, pointed toe, block-heel booties that you see everywhere on Instagram.  The quality is wonderful, and they are also pretty comfy being a lower heel!  They are still on sale for 40% off, and they come in so many colors! Linking all of the colors below:

 

IMG_1522.jpgSuede Block Heel Bootie:  This is a pair that I bought last year, and I am still loving! I love how sleek the covered block heel is. You can dress these up with skirts, dresses, or more casual with jeans and a leather jacket.  These also come in multiple colors and I’ll link them all below:

 

IMG_1625Black “Sock” Bootie:  These are what I put on when I want to add a bit of “sass” to my outfit, and also dress it up. I love the look of these with tights and a dress.  I was unable to find my exact boots, but I’m linking a very similar pair below under $100!

 

IMG_1600Fitted Over The Knee Boots: I am so glad that this trend is still going.  I love the added bit of warmth OTK boots add to your outfit.  These, in particular have been so great in my opinion. Last year, I walked around Charleston alllll day long in these, and my feet felt just fine at the end of the day. They don’t slide down too much either, which is great for a slip on boot with no ties!  I like the look of no ties or zippers especially if I’m wearing them with skirts. They take a little more work to get on and off, but I think it’s a more sleek look.  Linking the same exact pair below:

 

IMG_1506Tied Over the Knee Boots: Personally, I prefer to wear these over jeans.  OTK boots that are more adjustable tend to give you more room to fit jeans underneath, which is great for colder months.  I’m liking the most similar pair I could find below.  Mine are from Nordstrom Rack a couple years ago!

As always, thank you so much for reading! If you have any feedback for me, please comment below or head over to my latest instagram post. I’d love to hear from you. I hope that you found this post helpful in adding some staple boots to your closet this year!

Until next time,

Olivia

Activewear I’ve Been Loving Lately

***To shop any items in this post, simply click on the picture of the items below, and you will be taken directly to where I purchased them! ☺️***

IMG_2929.jpg
Hey there! Thanks for coming back to hang out! A couple weeks ago, I wrote a blog post about causal Fall outfits, and I got a really great response from it, so thank you! I’ve been thinking that I should also share some activewear/ athleisure since that is honestly what I wear half the time when I am working from home, walking Josie, or running around town (aka going to Target 🤣). All of these items in this blog post are items that I have purchased myself and truly love!  These pieces are from multiple different retailers including, Fabletics, Target, Nordstrom Rack, & Amazon!

IMG_2538

Shop This Outfit:

I will tell you a bit about Fabletics first (No, this post is not sponsored!), since I personally took forever to try it out!  I ordered my first pairs of leggings from Fabletics back in June, and I signed up for their VIP membership that allows you to get your first pairs for $24! I can honestly say now that I have been wearing several items from Fabletics over the past few months, that the quality is wonderful! I wear the leggings for pure barre, running errands, walking Josie, etc.  They hold up nicely, and they look/feel expensive! They have definitely become my go-to leggings.  Also, this monochromatic white camo tee is my one of my new favs! I wear with with jeans as well–It is so versatile.  Here is a link if you would like to try out Fabletics for yourself!

 

Shop This Outfit:

So, if I’m not in leggings lately, I have been livingggg in these joggers! They are such great quality joggers (under $30!).  I am not afraid to wear these in public because they are so chic. They do not look like sweat pants, and I still feel put together in them.  They are almost like leggings, but even more comfortable in my opinion.  They come in green as well, and I may be ordering those because I love them that much.  They fit TTS and all sizes are in stock!

 

Shop This Outfit:

Okay, these racer back tanks are an absolute steal! They come in packs of 3 for $23.99! I wear them mainly to pure barre. I have washed and dried mine several times. No shrinking or anything like that. They fit TTS.

These slides are also so cute and perfect for sliding on before and after going to pure barre!!

IMG_0943

Shop This Cozy Sweatshirt:

I just picked this up last weekend at Target! I swear the quality at Target just gets better and better.  This is one of the softest, easy pullovers I’ve ever worn (even softer than my aerie sweatshirts!) This is perfect for pairing with leggings or jeans. I love to wear it off the shoulder! I got my normal size (XS).

Shop Adidas Cloudfoam Sneakers:

These Adidas sneaks are not new to me. I have had this pair for over a year now!  I love them because they are so comfortable, and when they get dirty, I simply throw them in a garment bag and toss them in the wash! I’ve probably washed this pair about 10 times, and they are still holding up nicely.  My mom has these too and loves them!  Linking multiple colors!

IMG_0942.jpg

Shop Cute Adidas Hats:

My lil Adidas hat has become the perfect accessory for bad hair days or beach days! Very cute and light weight. Comes in so many color options!!

Thank y’all so much for reading, and hanging out for a bit! Let me know what kind of blog posts you would like to see coming up! I would love to hear from you. 💕
