The Striped Transition Sweater You Need for Fall

Labor Day is a week away, which means fall’s arrival is on the way! I absolutely love summer and I’m sad to see it go. However, there are some key pieces I love to rely on to transition into fall. This striped transition sweater is the perfect way to ease into fall. The color block stripes are a fun trend from summer. Plus, you can tuck this sweater into shorts for cooler summer nights. I can easily see myself throwing this over a swimsuit after watching a sunset at the beach. Or you can wear it when you’re in chilly restaurants or grocery stores when you’re running errands. I’m wearing a size US 2, which fits like a size 0-2. This sweater is meant to fit a little boxy and oversized. It’s also perfect for layering as I like to wear an extra cashmere layer underneath to stay extra warm when it’s cold.

How to Get Designer Bags at a Discount

Hello Everyone! Designer bags including Chanel, Dior, Givenchy and more always have such an elusive appeal. However, they can definitely be quite expensive, hence being a designer bag. This doesn’t mean they cannot be somewhat attainable though. Today, I want to share how to get designer bags at a discount. Rebag, formerly Trendlee, is a great place to shop for what I call pre-loved designer bags. I purchased my Chanel Boy bag pre-owned and it was a great way to save a lot of money. I can understand the worry behind whether a bag is authentic. That’s where Rebag shines.

Pastel Rainbow :: Striped Summer Dress

Happy Monday Y’all! I’m a big fan of stripes, especially when they are in a colorful rainbow array. This pastel striped summer dress is an easy addition to any wardrobe. I love how you can throw it on and go. Plus, it’ll work whether it’s a more casual occasion or something slightly fancier. This dress is a lightweight fabric so it’s going to keep you cool when it gets hot out. Also, I love how it’s lined. Wrap silhouettes are one of my favorite types of dresses to wear because of how flattering they are. This striped summer dress has a fun and flirty ruffle hem, which I adore. It’s a true wrap silhouette, so you can make the v-neck lower or higher depending on what you prefer, which is nice. I’m wearing size XXS and it fits true to size.

Endless Summer :: Striped Two-Piece Set

Happy Monday, y’all! First up, I’m on day eight of my work marathon week and still going strong, I think! We are a bit short staffed at the station, plus with it being August, folks are taking their well-deserved vacations. Therefore, those of us who are on deck are really really working, ha! Speaking of, I cannot believe we are halfway through August! Luckily, living in Coastal Virginia means summer lasts beyond the official end date. If I’m not working, I love dressing as if I’m on vacation because let’s face it, I kind of am. This striped two-piece set is to die for and absolutely perfect for summer. Plus, it’s a complete steal at only $33! The fabric is linen, which I adore during summer. However, something to keep in mind is there is no stretch in the fabric. This set also comes in blue and white stripes.

In the Big Waves :: High-Waisted Swimsuit

Hello Everyone! It’s no surprise I love spending time at the beach and enjoying everything Coastal Virginia has to offer. We get some big waves every once in a while, but the waves in these photos are huge! I could see them right when I turned off Pacific. What was cool was even though the waves were pretty crazy, once they rolled in they were smooth. However, this makes for great photos without me actually getting soaked!

Albion Fit sent me this adorable light purple high-waisted swimsuit and I couldn’t wait to wear it. Living by the beach allows me to expand on my swimsuit collection and I’m loving high-waisted bottoms! Albion Fit has a huge collection of more conservatively cut swimsuits that are still fun, fresh and trendy. You may remember this navy striped swimsuit from a few months back.
