I picked up this Fall Floral Satin Top in 3 out of the 5 colors, while shopping at Nordstrom yesterday! Satin is definitely the hot trend this fall and this chic, up-to-date satin top is definitely a wardrobe staple. It also is the comfiest top around and can easily be worn day, to night, office to happy hour! I wore this ensemble last night to end our weekend at our favorite Italian dinner spot in town. This was the second time this weekend I wore floral embroidered so I need to take a break lol. I usually always overkill a trend and wear it over and over without even noticing. I think this is also the second satin top I wore this week too haha oh well!
I plan on doing a crushing on series of all the fall trends I have been seeing but real quick I will share some that I saw at fashion week:
A little pro tip while shopping, Nordstrom has a trend section here that you can find all these trend items and more! I usually find myself on this page weekly just staying up to date on the new releases and how I can incorporate them in my wardrobe!
Hope you all had an enjoyable weekend. Husband and I’s plan was to just be home and hide out from life, but we couldn’t stop saying no to all the invites! Our extrovert-selves got the best of us, so we spent the entire weekend with friends, which is always so nice! Now, I am ready to conquer another work week. Ted was supposed to go to China for work, but the embassy wouldn’t approve his visa in time, so honey is stuck with me for another week, before we both are off next week!
Event season is definitely on it’s way and my inbox has been flooded with save the dates! Being in the event world previously, everyone waits until quarter 3 to host Galas, luncheons, events, etc since everyone is way too busy traveling during the summer. Since I have been planning out my holiday calendar on what events to attend, I thought I would share my current favorite velvet gown for a ball / wedding / special event you maybe invited too before 2017 ends!
1. SO warm, I love it. It was actually my second option to wear to my cousins wedding a couple weeks ago in Colorado (see what I ended up wearing here). I couldn’t part ways with it since I needed a warmer dress so I am keeping it for my next Gala!
2. ON trend, velvet and Navy. I think I beat the bush on the velvet trend lately since I have been wearing it in every other photo. IDK a part of me is so shocked because it has taken me a while to dive deep into all velvet and NOW look at me. I am in a full on velvet ball gown. I couldn’t love it more even if I tried! I also think Navy is such a hot hot color right now!
3. SO flattering. I can see this dress working on all body types! I am wearing a size 2 and just fits like a glove yet the material is thick so I don’t have to worry about sucking in, etc. I think this would even be such a pretty bridesmaid dress for a winter wedding. Ahh the possibilities!
Real quick with every and any event I know that I will be walking or standing a lot, I go for these heels. I now have them in black and tan and I can walk miles in them. They are pretty plain jane but trust me when I say I go for them ALL the time. More times than I should!
Happy Friday babes. Woohooo we made it to the weekend. I just so badly want a weekend where I can just be home and binge watch Netflix so I think that is what we are going to do! Especially since husband is preaching on Sunday, we always tend to hide out on sermon weekends so he can prep and I can catch up on sleep. I do have my lovely friends, Life to Lauren, wedding shower this weekend and I can’t wait to celebrate her!
UMMM this plum fall color is so dreamy! I am so into all the fall vibes over here and this color / sateen material was the perfect romantic top for date night last night. I got so many questions about it on my stories, so that is when I know it’s a good find, and had to share it ASAP. Since getting back from fashion week, I have been so inspired to try new outfits and think outside the box. That is why I decided to pair this plum color with these grey dusty jeans to give it the ultimate look. I also grabbed my cheetah slides (bc cheetah = neutral) and I can walk all day in them. Basically the entire outfit can be found at Nordstrom and Nordstrom has been killing it with the fall selection! I really want to order this top also in the black version to style it with some cute skirts and booties!
It was so nice to see hubby bear after a bajillion days of not being together. He is my ultimate partner in life and I missed his face so stinking much! Although our schedules have been crazy and he leaves me again for Asia this weekend, I have learned just to embrace this time in our life and enjoy the little moments we have together! Even if that means we are working on the computer side by side, time together is better than no time at all! And obviously my love language is quality time lol!
NYFW is the perfect time to practice stepping outside your comfort zone. I took advantage of stepping outside of my comfort zone by wearing this look. I was nervous to rock this outfit but I owed it to myself to be confident in what I want to wear. Truthfully, I was so glad I walked out of the hotel room with such a bold statement. The feedback I received from all of y’all made me smile and only confirmed that it was a great choice! Sometimes all we need is that extra push to get inspired and feel as we can accomplish anything. Once you start stepping outside your comfort zone you’ll find it easier to push your boundaries in the future and you’ll learn a lot about yourself. In conclusion, I hope each of you will take a chance this week and step out!
Happy hump day babes! I really can’t believe it’s already Wednesday and I am finally back home from the NYFW craziness. Thanks for being so patient with my posting schedule. I am back to posting every morning and can’t wait to share all my fashion week looks that I shot!
