Hey Friends, it’s finally FRIDAY! Hope you all had a great week. Any fun plans for the weekend? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the public today (woohoo!!), so will you be shopping throughout the weekend? 😀 I had every intention of sharing my Nordstrom finds from the sale, but I’ve had some order and delivery challenges with Nordstrom, soooo suffice it to say, my try-on will be a bit delayed. Bummed about that, but some things are just outta your control. In other news, a lot of the East coast (and other parts of the US, I’m sure) is under a heat wave – hazy, hot and humid (90s with a feels like temp in the 100s). So our weekend plans will either involve a pool or being indoors in the AC. 😀
It’s Friday, so let’s talk about the favorites of the week, starting off with a lightweight pair of joggers from Amaryllis Apparel.
Outfit Details: Waffle Knit Tie-front Top (wearing size Small – runs TTS, just not offered in XS) // My blush open cardigan is from Loft (last year I think?). Loft offers a nearly identical one – click here to see it. // Pacifica Joggers (size up, wearing size Small).
So, getting to these joggers … this was my first purchase from Amaryllis Apparel. Have you guys heard of them or shopped with them before? I would consider them more of an online boutique retailer. Aside from a few stray strings that needed snipped, overall I’m pleased with my purchase. These joggers come in a few color options, including sand (that’s the color I’m wearing), olive, navy and grey. If you get the sand color, just be cognizant of underwear color choice when wearing them. The sizes range from Small – 3X, however with these joggers I would size up. Typically I’m an XS and took a chance on the Small and they fit perfectly. I prefer joggers to be slightly relaxed and not fitted. I think if they offered an XS, they would’ve been too snug for me. I’m 5’6″ for reference and you can see where they hit at my ankle. If you like your joggers to be fitted, then I think you could go with your normal size.
In the above, I simply switched out my top for a white lace cami and flip-flops. Excuse the dog toys. lol
The material is definitely on the thinner side, but still very comfortable. They are so lightweight, which is ideal for the hot weather we’ve been experiencing. They have a pull-on style with drawstring waist, two generous sized front pockets (but it doesn’t add bulk or anything) with two pockets in the back. I like that they are made from 100% cotton – makes them breathable and perfect for hot summer days or if you’re vacationing at a warm destination. They have the typical ribbing at the cuffs that you see on joggers, and have a really subtle pattern to them. Very easy to dress up or down. I can absolutely see these becoming my go-to travel pants, for sure. Very cute!
An accessory that I’ve been wearing quite often this week and LOVING are these red earrings from Target.
Outfit Details: Sugarfix by BaubleBar Enamel Stud with Beaded Hoop Earrings. If red is not your color, these cute earrings also come in white, aqua and yellow. These beaded hoops are a perfect size and will complement so many summer styles. It’s a fun way to add some color and texture to your outfit. Love it! Plus, for anyone with sensitive ears, these are nickel-free. *insert thumbs up emoji*
The last favorite is this dress from Kohls! 🙂
Outfit Details: Lauren Conrad Knot Sleeve Swing Dress (wearing XS) // Apt9 Sonar Strappy Sandals (wearing size 8.5). How adorable is this striped swing dress! It’s like wearing your favorite tee, only in a dress. It comes in a good variety of color/pattern options (I always tend to gravitate towards a stripe). It’s the perfect summer throw-on-and-go dress. Beach or brunch, this is the perfect casual dress!
As always, I love your company and appreciate you stopping by! Take care and I’ll see you back here on Monday! xo ~ Michelle
