Styling Olive Green In The Summer

Dress: Forever21 (Only $20!) // Heels: Marc Fisher // Purse: Michael Kors // Sunnies: BP. (Similar HERE for $12!) // Earrings: Kendra Scott

It is finally Friday! I could honestly scream and shout because I am so excited haha. There isn’t even much going on this weekend but I am so pumped to sit around and do nothing:) Between friends coming in town and traveling, I don’t even feel like my weekends have been my little break time! So this weekend I told myself I am doing nothing haha. I love being busy but its good for the soul to take a break sometimes:)

Okay now that I rambled on, lets get to this fun off the shoulder dress! I was walking through the mall and decided to stop in Forever 21 (which I never do because the store gives me major anxiety! Anyone else?) when I came across this olive green off the shoulder dress! Jeremy was on the phone with me so I told him how cute it was but it was olive green so I didn’t think I was going to get it. Now, I am one who loves the color olive green because it goes so well for redheads but I always found it to be a fall color. I put it down and continued browsing but didn’t find anything I liked. I kept walking back over to it and telling Jeremy how much I loved it. Pretty sure he got sick of hearing me say it so many times, he was like “would you buy it already?!?”.

I believe the olive green dress was only $20 so I thought what the heck, let’s try it out! I am always up for a challenge when styling something not in season. Browns are my go to any season so adding in lighter summery browns to an olive green look was where I started. I added my hair up for a summery feel and some big sunnies. I loved the off the shoulder look a lot this summer and having your hair up really shows on your shoulders more! (Remember in high school when you had dress code that couldn’t show off your shoulders? haha guess they are sexy or something!) Plus in this 106 degree weather my hair normally ends up in a bun on the top of my head away!

After styling this one dress, I have found so many other olive green pieces that would be super cute this summer! I have linked them all for you so just click the little right arrow to scroll through them:)

Hope you have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by my little piece of the internet!!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Work Out Picks

Sweater: Nike Dry Versa Training Crop Top // Leggings: Zella Autumn High Waist Moto Leggings // Watch: Apple Watch // Shoes: Nike Free Run

Happy Wednesday! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going strong with so many items selling out fast! I did purchase a ton of fall pieces but I also got excited to see some fun work out wear in the sale as well. I mentioned on my insta stories about a month or so ago that I was finishing up Kayla’s BBG which honestly changed my life. It was the best thing I could have done to lose those extra pounds I got while traveling and change my lifestyle to be way more healthy! Anyway I think I will do more on my whole lifestyle change in a couple weeks because I have gotten a couple questions about what exactly I did:)

Today I wanted to share my favorite picks from their work out section because that’s what I spend most of my time in! Contrary to popular belief I don’t walk around all day, everyday dressed up from head to toe haha! I honestly spend most of my free time either running errands or sitting on at my laptop so comfy clothes is what I am all about! I have found if I put on PJ’s though I am not as productive so work out wear is my compromise;)

As soon as I saw these leggings were at a great price I snatched them up real quick! There is nothing better than a pair of thicker high rise leggings. It just holds everything together real nicely haha;) Also I have been trying out cropped tops with high waisted leggings which I find to be super flattering and gives a great breeze during an intense work out. I found this one in the sale and thought it would be great for the fall since it is a longer sleeve.

Here are a couple other of my favorite picks from the work out wear section:) Click directly on the image to shop that exact piece!

 

Have a wonderful rest of your week! Friday can not come soon enough haha

Summer Essentials: Kohl’s Bralettes

** This post was sponsored by Kohl’s. I received the included bralettes as compensation. As always all opinions are my own. **





Juniors’ SO Bras: Wire Free Lounge Plunge Bralette (Nude) // Juniors’ SO Bras: Lace Plunge Bralette (Blush & Grey) // Juniors’ Candie’s Bras: Eyelash Lace Bralette (White) // Juniors’ Candie’s® Bras: Padded Lace Bralette (Black)

This might be a little TMI but fun fact I actually haven’t worn a bra in over 2 years haha! I only wear sticky boobs as I like to call them. They are not the most supportive things and don’t always work with some of my favorite summer pieces unfortunately but they are not restricting with wires all over the place and don’t dig into your ribs when you sit down!

That is honestly the worst feeling… sitting all day and your wired bra digging into you, so I said I was giving up on bra’s all together. I thought who needs a bra anyway?! They aren’t comfy and the straps fall off the shoulder all day and the whole thing just puts me in a frustrated mood so I threw them all away!

I feel like this is a struggle bus that most women are on! Personally, I was all about my sticky boobs but boy do they not give any support what so ever and some of my favorite summer pieces are see through which if you know what sticky boobs are they are not the most eye appealing things haha. Oh the struggles! So when Kohl’s reached out to me about their bralette collection I was very curious to see if this could be the trick of the trade for me to find comfy support without the restriction that go beautifully under some of my favorite summer pieces. After looking through their collection online, I decided to order a couple of the bralettes and test them out to see if this really could be the life changing moment!

Well you guessed it! It 100% was! I could not have been happier with all the bralettes and was blown away by the support, style and comfiness of all three of them:) For someone who is very very picky, that threw her bras away and lived without them for the past 2 years this is huge! Since I am a big believer that comfy and style can go hand in hand, I wanted to share my top three bralettes from the Kohl’s Collection so you too can hop off the struggle bus:)

  1. Juniors’ SO Bras: Wire Free Lounge Plunge Bralette – This nude bralette from SO has no wires, razor back straps and huge’s every curl perfectly! I love the nude color because it goes really really well under all my summer white’s but it does come in a ton of other colors too. I wish y’all could truly feel how soft the bralette is! I wear it to work all the time and honestly forget I had it on because it doesn’t feel heavy or uncomfortable. In my books the best kind of bra is the bra you forget your wearing!
  2. Juniors’ SO Bras: Lace Plunge Bralette – Next is this Lace Plunge barrette that I got in blush and grey! I love the plunging neckline and how it is padded for extra support. The lace detailing is so beautiful. I styled it under one of my favorite summer white tops because it hangs off the shoulder a little. The worst is when you have an off the shoulder top and you have to wear a strapless bra that digs into you all the time. Styling your favorite Kohl’s bralettes will 100% save the day:)
  3. Juniors’ Candie’s Bras: Eyelash Lace Bralette – Last but not least, I fell in love with this white eyelash lace bralette. It is incredibly soft and hits perfectly around the rib cage so it doesn’t feel super tight but gives plenty of support. The white bralette is such a staple piece in a summer wardrobe! It is one that I go to grab constantly to wear under summer dresses/tops. Oh and its lined too which is a huge plus for me because ain’t nobody trying to see all that haha;)

Have fun checking out the Kohl’s Bralette Collection! Thanks for stopping by and spending some of your day with me:)
