Attack of the Moths





Shirt-A&F (similar Guess Plaid Shirt), Shorts-Target (similar Forever 21 Lace Shorts), Necklace-Eliza Jay Charm (similar Acrylic Monogram Necklace), Converse Chuck Taylor Sneakers, Bag-H&M (similar Forever 21 Satchel)

This past week I noticed that there was a moth flying around every night. I didn't think much of it, until I poured a bowl of Cheerios on Sunday for breakfast and discovered a moth in there. Yuck. Not my idea of Sunday Funday! I realized I must have pantry moths. I kinda hoped having dogs would keep away bugs, but I guess that only applies to other creatures (Oliver's beagle side means he's a hunting dog). 

Thankfully there's not millions in there, but I had to throw out almost everything in there and clean the shelves. Whomp whomp. After getting new food at the grocery store, everything is now in airtight containers and/or ziploc baggies. I'm storing the cereal outside of the pantry just in case. If anyone has any tips for me, please let me know!

Look What I Got Link Up: JCrew Bow Cardigan




Cardigan-JCrew via Poshmark, Tee-Forever 21 (similar Joe Fresh Striped Tee), Old Navy Jeans, Bag-H&M, Flats-Target

I was so excited that I found this JCrew Sequin Bow Cardigan, in my size, on Poshmark! I saw a bunch of bloggers wear it last fall/winter and was envious. It's no longer available at JCrew so I couldn't believe I found it on Poshmark on the cheap. It was listed for $25, but I bargained with the seller and got down to $20. Thanks to a credit I had, I paid just under $16, including shipping!

Work Dinner





Jacket-Gap Outlet (similar Alloy Tweed Jacket), Blouse-Forever 21 (similar White House Black Market Bow Blouse), Pants-H&M Kids, Clutch-Vintage, Flats-Gap Kids

Last Wednesday I had a dinner meeting for work to attend. Our office is very casual, but for the dinner I knew I needed to wear something dressier and professional. I decided to wear my tweed jacket that I purchased a bunch of years ago from the Gap outlet. It's a classic piece that I will be able to wear for years to come. I paired it with a sheer black bow blouse and black pants to keep the look toned down. The dinner was delicious...they served us a four course meal and I was stuffed when I walked out. I wish I could've Instagrammed it!

Mix It Mondays: Neon Lace Sweatshirt





Jacket-Target (similar Old Navy Faux Leather Jacket), Sweatshirt-Target (similar JCPenney Neon Sweatshirt for $18), Old Navy Jeans, Flats-Gap Kids (similar Sam & Libby Bow Flats)

I wore this outfit on the weekend for a casual date at a taco/burrito place. It was a little chilly that night so I reached for my faux leather jacket, layered over a neon sweatshirt. I'm a bit sad that it's already getting to be jacket weather! But I do have to admit that I'm getting a little sick of my summer wardrobe so it's nice to be able to wear other things in my wardrobe that haven't been worn in months. 

For Mix It Mondays, I'm remixing my neon lace sweatshirt. I last wore it in the spring with a mint necklace and booties. The sweatshirt is lightweight which makes it easy to wear in more than one season.

Look What I Got: Old Navy Rockstar Denim






Top-Aeropostale (similar Dolce Vita Lace Top), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Pearl Necklace-Vintage, Silver Necklace-Forever 21, Pumps-c/o Oasap (similar Madden Girl Nude Pumps for $39), Clutch-Target (similar Style & Co Clutch)

I spent my Labor Day at the mall, checking out all the sales. When I was in Old Navy, I found these ripped skinny jeans on the clearance rack for just $16. I'm a huge fan of Old Navy's Rockstar denim...I have a bunch of pairs in different colors and washes. The skinny fit is just right and they aren't incredibly long for a petite girl like me (mine are rolled up a bit if you're wondering). I realized I didn't have any distressed skinny jeans in my closet so I scooped these right up!

Local Summer





Romper-c/o 10DollarMall.com (now on sale for $7.49!), Vest-Target (similar Charlotte Russe Denim Vest for $20), Sandals-Target, Bag-Forever Tiff Couture (similar Steve Madden Crossbody Bag)

I know for many people Labor Day means the end of your summer. But when you live at the Jersey Shore, that's not the case...this weekend I was sitting on the beach. It's been really hot and humid lately (even more so than it was during most of August). September is a wonderful time here, since the beach is quiet and no longer crowded aka Local Summer. I no longer have to fight for a parking spot or hit traffic every time I leave the house. I'm just hoping there's still more beach days ahead!

Utility Trend: Summer to Fall Outfit

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, InStyle, Vogue and Elle, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirefallfashion  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Now that it's September, everyone has fall fashion on their minds! I love reading up on the latest fall trends to get inspiration for the new season. So, I headed to Target for the September ELLE and InStyle magazines. I was pleased to see in ELLE that the Utility trend will still be going strong for fall (seen on the runways of Alexander Wang and Balmain). Think pockets on everything that are both stylish and functional. 

The weather might still be warm, but you can incorporate the fall trends into your outfits right now. I paired my utility jacket with a summer dress for a summer to fall transition outfit. Bonus, I already had the utility jacket in my closet. It's nice when a trend lasts more than one season!




Jacket-Old Navy (similar Pink Envelope Utility Jacket for $28), Dress-Target (similar Charlotte Russe Striped Dress for $15), Bag-Target (similar Nine West Crossbody Bag), Flats-KensieGirl (similar Report Diana Flat)

Now through September 13, buy any two fall fashion magazines (Elle, InStyle, and/or Vogue) at Target and get a $5 Target gift card!
