Gray Mood

I’m a really big fan of grayscale colors. Maybe it’s because dark colors hide all your insecurities and make you feel like a thin & slim goddess. Anyway, gray is one of those colors for me. I love it. I thought I’d share a mood board for all your gray needs!

Journee Collection Vally Bootie

Vally Bootie

A gray bootie is always necessary to have. It’s such a classic color and can really class up your outfit. You can’t go wrong with extra zippers either. Steph has a pair of gray booties that are to die for so I need to get on her level. Get this baby at DSW for $54.99!

Gibson Cozy V-Neck Top

Cozy V-Neck Top,
                        color, HEATHER GREY

V-necks are hard for me sometimes because I’m a little bustier so there’s a fine line between a good v-neck and showing off more than you need to see. Whenever I find a great v-neck, I love it for life. I like this top because the V isn’t too low but it still looks cute and comfy! Get this at Nordstrom for $49.

Curvy Skinny Corduroy Pants

If you’re into the whole corduroy thing right now, these are the pants for you. Everyone will want to touch your legs (if you let them, of course). These are pretty dang cute! You can get them from LOFT for $39.50.

Save Me a Dance Dress

Maybe you’re just looking for a cute heather gray dress to twirl around in. If you are, this one’s for you! It’s a comfy dress that can be dressed up or down. You can get this ‘lil cutie for $35 at Pink Lily Boutique.

CL by Laundry Studio Flat

Studio Flat

I’m a big fan of flats, especially pointed toe flats!! I feel like they’re so slimming and flattering on everyone and they always give you a polished look. These flats have a cute scalloped vibe to them to make your outfit look that much cuter. Get these from DSW for $40.

Oversize Fringe Scarf


It’s getting super cold outside and you need a scarf so get this one! Pair it with a black leather jacket and you’re golden. You can get it from Gap (the Gap?) for $20.

Super-Long Open-Front Duster


I love dusters! I always feel like I’m a really important person when I wear them. I also like whipping it around but that’s just me. Anyway, they’re super comfortable and gives an extra oomph to a t-shirt and jeans. Start out your collection with this duster from Old Navy for $40.

Faux Leather Moto Jacket

You’re cool. I know you’re cool. Because you’re cool, you need a leather jacket. And you’re in luck, I just found you one. Fitted leather jackets are the best. This one is a pretty gray from LOFT and you can get it here.

Cozy Camp Socks

Cozy Camp Socks in Heather Grey - main

I love nice socks, especially in the winter. Marled socks happen to be my favorite to wear around the house (I’m not sure exactly why but that’s the way it is). Therefore, I think everyone should have a cute pair of marled socks and I found the perfect pair for you. Get these for $9.60 from Hanna Andersson.

Nike Dry Legend Hooded Top

If you were in the market for a cute hoodie for your workout (or for lounging around like I would use it for), I found this little baby. I really like Nike clothes because they’re super comfortable so treat yourself with this $40 hoodie at Macy’s.

Go a little gray crazy this month and branch out from the colors!

Steph’s Favorite Places to Shop

I thought I would share my favorite places to shop for clothes lately. I’ve been trying to be good about saving money because I want a new car soon so I have to limit myself somewhat so that means not shopping too much. Sometimes I can’t resist though!

Michelle and I work for a more conservative company and their dress code is “business professional.” My go-to store for work clothes, as you probably guessed already, is Loft. I love their cute tops and pencil skirts. They’re currently having a 40% off sale for friends and family! As I’m writing this, I’m trying to tell myself not to look through the site. The thing to remember with Loft if you’re looking at some of their prices is that they have sales so often that I very rarely will buy anything full price there. Wait for the sale. You can also find some great stuff at their outlet.

I also really love to shop at Nordstrom. Years ago, before I started shopping there, I always thought they were too expensive. Sometimes I would find things at Nordstrom Rack but I didn’t seek them out. After I started reading some blogs, I realized they have some great sales too and you don’t always have to spend tons of money. They always have free shipping and returns too. Their customer service is so great that I will keep shopping there just for that.

A couple years ago, I had ordered a dress and a skincare product from Nordstrom’s website and when it was supposed to be delivered and I hadn’t seen the package yet, I noticed on the order that it had gone to my old house by mistake. I called Nordstrom with low hopes of anything being done because it was obviously my mistake and they were so nice and just shipped me out new products to my current address. They acted like it was no big deal but to me it was huge! Nordstrom is well known for having some of the best customer service.

If I’m looking for more casual clothing to wear when I’m not at work, I love Mindy Mae’s Market. I know I’ve posted about them before but their clothes are so cute! Everyone needs one of their double hood sweatshirts. I wish they had sales more often. They also won me over with their customer service. I had bought a vest from them on a sale and a few days after I ordered, I got an email saying that the vest had been restocked with a slightly different vest. They sent me a picture of the new one just wanting to make sure I still wanted it and to make me aware it would be a little different than what I thought. Unfortunately, I decided not to keep the vest because it wasn’t the color I wanted but I really appreciated them reaching out like that.

I’m currently drooling over this top since I saw it on IG. I love stuff that looks like you’ve put more effort into it than you really have like with these layers. I’m also a sucker for stripes. Give me all the striped tops!

Those are probably my top places right now. I will branch out every once in a while but I really like to stick with companies and brands I know I won’t be disappointed with. Sorry that was really wordy with only one picture but check out their websites and see what you can find!

Outfit of the Day

Good morning!

I was inspired by Michelle’s post about mustard yellow and by a post by Sheaffer Told Me To and bought this outfit! Loft was having a sale recently where everything was 50% off plus free shipping and I couldn’t resist. Loft is my go-to store lately for clothes, especially for work.

I thought this outfit was so fun and the skirt is not what I would normally wear but when I put it all together, I loved it. My sister actually got the same outfit too!

Excuse my squinty eyes as it was very bright and a little windy.

You can find the top here and it is currently 40% off! This will be great as well with some dark jeans and cute flats. You can’t see it in the picture but the back buttons down. I realized when I got it in the mail that I actually have this shirt in a mint green too that I love.

The skirt is a great mustard color. It’s not something I would’ve picked out normally but I’m glad it got me out of my comfort zone. I love the big pockets and the tie waist adds a cute extra touch. It is also 40% off right now! I think this outfit would be great when it’s colder with some black tights and I have some cute black wedges. The skirt is actually a little thicker than you would think so it’s perfect for fall and winter!

My flats I actually found this summer at Nordstrom Rack but I found them on Nordstrom’s website here. I actually have them in nude as well and they’re a great comfy flat. Sam Edelman shoes will hold up too so sometimes spending the extra money is worth it.


Outfit of the Day

Good morning! I wore this outfit last week to work for their casual Friday. I thought it would be a great weekend outfit as well!

My top is from LOFT a few months ago so it’s sold out now, unfortunately. I think you can dress up any outfit with a top that’s not just a t-shirt and has some sort of flare like this one has with the peplum.

My jeans are just some skinny jeans from American Eagle that I’ve had for a few years. I find their jeans fit me best and then depending on the shoes I’m wearing I will just cuff them like I did here. My shoes are the Shoreline Converse that I wear all the time. I like that I can just slip them on and they have the lower profile than the normal Converse.

I hope everyone is having a great week! We’re halfway through!

Outfit of the Day

This is a great summer work outfit. It can also easily be dressed up or down if you switch pieces out depending on what event you need to wear it to.

The top is from Nordstrom Rack a little while ago. The edge on my top pulls together the fringe on my skirt.

The skirt is from Loft Outlet that I bought this summer. I love love love shopping at Loft or the Loft Outlet. Their clothes are well-made and they have some great sales. I usually only shop there when a sale is happening and luckily, that happens often. They recently started a website for the outlet so now I can also shop there from home!

My shoes are made by Michael Kors. I had my eye on them for months and I finally splurged when they went on sale. They were so great I bought a second pair of wedges from them. Let me tell you, they are tall but they are the comfiest wedges I’ve ever owned. They rub a little spot on my toes but I just put a band-aid on before I wear them and I’m good to go. Here is a similar pair in black that are on sale too for $91.35!

My earrings are from Gorjana. I know they’re a little pricey for hoops but they are so light and well-made. I wear them with so many things and it dresses up an outfit and I can keep them in all day long without feeling like the hoop is going to tear through my ear.

The other jewelry I’m wearing is my little collection of Alex and Ani bracelets and my necklace is from Stella and Dot. My sister gave it to me a few months before I got married and even though you can’t see it very well, it has the date I got married on it. I wear it almost every day. The one I have is their Signature Engravable Bar Necklace.

I hope you got some fun ideas from this outfit!

Outfit of the Day

Here’s today’s work outfit in case you need an idea for a comfortable but cute ensemble.

My top is a new find from Zara. They’re currently having a big sale, btw. Check it out here.

The bottoms are super soft and comfy ankle dress pants from LOFT. Steph is actually the one that got me straight up hooked on LOFT and now most of our work clothes are from there. Unfortunately, they don’t sell my exact pair anymore but they still have tons of great dress pants so shop their store here.

I bought these super cute shoes at Downeast. I used to not like these but then I tried them on & my sister convinced me to get them. You can get them here.

I paired the outfit with a cute Kate Spade crossbody that I got in one of my Stitch Fix boxes (click here to join Stitch Fix and get your first box free!). They know me so well, they threw in Kate Spade stuff.

Finally, I paired it with the black version of the earrings I posted about in my Earring Obsession post! You can get these babies (and other gorge earrings) from Bohme Boutique. (Don’t mind my triangle lanyard for my work badge)
