These are a few of my favorite things
1. What to Wear
Shout Out The Answer Tee
Basic Tee’s are my love language! This one is perfection! It’s super soft and pairs well with anything!
This must-have layering piece has so many cute features! From the fun fringe on the shoulders, to the peplum hem, to the coolest print on the back, you will NEED this one for all your fall outfits.
Staple Black Jeans
Skinny jeans– my jam! They suck everything in that needs to be and of course, black is super slimming! I’m kind of a jean snob and prefer Madewell over everything (like I said before sucking everything in requires high-waisted jeans!) that was until I tried these! These ones are also mid-high rise, but they’re a super-soft premium denim that only gets better with every wear and have a super-flattering fit for all body types!
Run Around Town Sneaker
Loving these signature floral accents on supreme satins and leathers! This lace up style has a padded collar, soft fabric shoe lining, Memory Foam cushioned insole, and a rubber sole. Can they get any cuter?! Seriously.
2. Where to Shop
Matilda Jane Clothing
I love Matilda Jane’s style for my little girl. We adore unique boutique clothing and once I also found out the heart of the company, I’ve been supporting it ever since. Not only can I dress my daughter in the durable clothing that grows with her, but my son, and let’s be honest, I LOVE the women’s collections, too! They have a release once a month to showcase the latest and greatest!
Madewell is all about quality and doing well. Because they believe in what they do, they collaborated with organizations on exclusive products that give back. 50 percent of the retail price from the purchase of Do Well products go to charity: water, Girls Inc. and the Human Rights Campaign. I mean, I can shop AND make a difference at the same time? I’m all about that.
I mean, I think Anthropologie speaks for itself. The clothing is high quality and unique. Beautiful romantic pieces ready for a night in or out. I love what they have to say about their customers: “Our customer is a creative-minded woman, who wants to look like herself, not the masses. She has a sense of adventure about what she wears, and although fashion is important to her, she is too busy enjoying life to be governed by the latest trends. To her, Anthropologie is a portal of discovery—a brush with what could be. A place for her to lose—and find—herself.”
There hasn’t been one trip to Nordstrom where I don’t find at least one thing. Their variety is always on trend, mostly in stock, and ready at your fingertips. I also love their N sales! I score the BEST deals during those!
3. What I’m Reading
DARE TO LEAD
I adore Brene Brown. Dare to Lead is about putting in brave work, tough conversations, and whole hearts.
“Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential.”
IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THIS WAY
The always inspiring Lysa Terkeurst. This book is speaking to me in this season.
“Disappointments are an inevitable part of life. Yet, despite the way they sometimes throw our worlds completely off-kilter, they don’t have to signify the end. In fact, they are often what must be for something new to begin.”
Written by the Founder and Co-CEO of Noonday Collection. This book is about living a life of purpose by leaving comfort and going scared inviting us to free ourselves from doubt and embrace risk. She shows how women grow stronger when we choose vulnerability and build a culture of collaboration. She challenges you to get off the couch and simply go scared, leaving behind our comfort zones for lives of impact, meaning, and beautifully imperfect courage.
GIRL, STOP APOLOGIZING
Rachel Hollis’s post “Girl, Wash Your Face”.
“I believe we can change the world, but first, we’ve got to stop living in fear of being judged for who we are.”
This book is about women living to their full potential. Living for the more, but often don’t as they’re afraid of embarrassment, of falling short of perfection, and of not being enough.
