A Week of Outfits: August

Happy hump day, guys! Life is a little hectic right now between car problems, ongoing LASIK recovery, work, house projects, doctor appointments, planning fall travel and changing my name, BUT I’m also surprisingly content with where we are in the year. We’re in that so-sweet spot when it’s still summer—there are gorgeous nights on the porch and it’s still warm enough to jump in the lake—but we’re late enough in the year where the excitement of fall is starting—football season is back (!) and we can get away with wearing jackets again (!!). August, September and October is my favorite time of year in Minnesota, so I’m trying to make a point to just savor everything over the next few weeks and months, despite the daily stresses! 😇😇😇

Anyway, I’m super excited about today’s post—I thought it would be fun to show you what I wear in an average week IRL! I’m starting to think about fall clothes, but definitely not overdoing it! My shopping strategy is to lighten up a little in the summer and add a few heavier layers in the winter, but most of the clothes I buy can be worn all year long—and this week’s outfits definitely reflect that season-less mindset and this transitional time of year (a couple tees, a couple jackets and a couple of sweatshirts!). These are all looks I wore to work, but my office dress code is very casual, so they would totally work for a fun dinner out with friends on the weekend, too. All about that versatility! 👏

Look 1: LetLuv Tee (my new favorite tee—so thin and soft!) | J.Crew Pants (MUST—I wear these 2-3 times a week) | Sam Edelman Sandals in black leather (40% OFF) | J.Crew Bracelets one, two (my everyday stack!)
Look 2: EVEREVE Tee (basically me, in a tee—love the longer sleeve length) | J.Crew Skirt (will be wearing this ALL fall with sweaters and booties—comes in 3 colors) | Enzo Angiolini Sandals (under $100)

Look 1: J.Crew Blazer (such a great fit! limited sizes left and 25% OFF—everyone at work commented on how GLAM I looked, so this deifnitely makes a statement) | Banana Tank (old, similar here) | Madewell Skirt (old, similar here) | Sam Edelman Sandals in black leather | J.Crew Necklace
Look 2: Marrakech Jacket (so stretchy—love!) | Nordstrom Cami (a great layering basic with pretty lace trim) | Madewell Jeans (my favorites) | Sam Edelman Sandals in leopard (I wear these as much as my black and nude pairs)

Look 1: Rebecca Minkoff Sweatshirt (also in black and gray) | Ann Taylor Joggers (tempted to buy another pair so I have a backup when these wear out!) | Sam Edelman Sandals (the most versatile shoes in my closet and SO comfortable!)
Look 2: Clare V. Sweatshirt (old, similar here and here) | EVEREVE Skirt (I surprised myself by buying this, but I’m loving the ochre and copper for fall and finding lots of ways to wear it!) | Sam Edelman Sandals in nude (yes, again!)

This weekend we have a couples baby shower on Saturday and big plans to do yard work all Sunday! I’m excited to get rid of all the ugly bushes, weeds and overgrown crap and start pretty-ing everything up! LOTS to do, but I love our little house and it’s fun to make small improvements! I’ll share progress updates as we go! 💋
