So is anyone sick of a band tee yet? Cause I'm not. I am glad to say the graphic band tee trend is here to stay! There are so many options now it's so hard to choose. There are a million ways to style it so I wanted to show something a little different.

Rocksbox for Thunderstorms

It's always a good day for a Rocksbox! I really can't rave enough about this box. I love that I get new pieces to freshen up the collection each month and I can try out a few things to decide if I need them (spoiler alert: I usually do) This time around I was feeling an edgier vibe. I exercised my option to trade out a few pieces for some funkier ones.

Loft Flash Sale

Who doesn't love a good sale to start off your week. I was perusing my favorite places last night and came across a Loft flash sale. Bless them, I needed a good sale to cope with knowing Monday was around the corner. The sale is only good until 11:59 AM today so shop it quick! 50% off on sale items and fall favorites. I picked through some of my favorites.

Stitch Fix September

Whoo hoo it's Friday! I am ready for the weekend. The weather has been pretty gloomy lately and made for one long week. Unfortunately, the weekend doesn't look much better, but maybe it calls for some cozy movie nights. 

I also thought it might be time for another ol' reliable Stitch Fix post. I got this a few weeks ago thinking ahead to fall and got some great pieces! Let's dive in.

A denim jacket is a closet staple. Everyone needs one hands down. My favorite one I got in a Fix years ago. This one was definitely comfortable and soft. Think cardigan but denim. A really great option if you are looking for one. Unfortunately I am still on the hunt for a good boyfriend fit jacket so this one went back. I debated ordering a bigger size but it's more fitted for a woman's figure, which just isn't what I need.

I must admit this one I was on the fence about. My stylist knows me well and told me to give it a chance. The positive is it fit really great. For me the downside is it just isn't my style. I don't love a hi-lo cut and the pattern is little more boho than my personal style. That said, if boho is your thing this would be great for you!

This I loved the instant I saw it. Blue is  my favorite color, has been forever. Oddly enough though, I don't have any blue like this in my closet. It's always nice to add something different. French Connection is such a great brand. I love their classic vibe with an edge and this is no different. This textured material is like a thicker waffle knit. It's a little cropped too so great for a high waisted jean. It's not meant to be off the shoulder but it wants to sit like that for some reason. A big win!

This one I relly debated on for a bit. I wasn't initially sure I would like it. I tried it on and kind of liked it. I debated for a while before inevtiabley deciding it wasn't for me. The pattern isn't 100% my style, although I didn't mind the silhouette. I linked up a few similar options I did like.

This was the other win piece for me. I loved this the second I saw it. It has everything I love, grey? Stripes? Yes, please. I love the balloon sleeve too, but a more fitted silhouette. I have a couple of balloon sleeve tops but they were loose. I like the contrast of the dramatic sleeve on this one. A keeper

Which is your favorite?

Casual in my Converse

Hey all! So guess who finally jumped on the Converse train? This girl! I know, I know not exactly ground breaking stuff but I had to share it. I have wanted a pair for a while and honestly wasn't sure if I could pull it off. There is a casual-coolness about them that I wasn't sure I possessed. I didn't want to look like a poser. I realized though that I like to play around a lot with fashion and try on many looks, so who cares? Here I am!

Wedding Style Jumpsuit

This post contains affiliate links. Please read my full disclaimer here.

Happy September! It's been a crazy busy weekend. My aunt got married this weekend, we had family come in from out of town and some stayed with us. It's always good to be with family and we got to do a lot with them. Introduced them to the Minnesota State Fair , showed them our new house and bonded over Parks and Rec. A good way to spend the last weekend of summer.

We have been waiting for this wedding to come for a long time. So I have had a lot of time to think about what I wanted to wear. I was looking everywhere and I came across this jumpsuit. First, I thought I was being pretty original wearing a jumpsuit. Turns out both my sisters and a cousin wore one too so there goes that, ;) Second, this just felt like an homage to what she wore at my wedding. She wore a red dress with a rosette, gorgeous dress. This tangerine with a ruffle reminded me of her dress immediately. I knew I had to have it. Plus a jumpsuit at a summer wedding felt a lot more comfortable than a restricting dress.  Good for dancing too, albeit I am not a the greatest dancer I have a good time. Plus,my daughter was a flower girl so I knew I would be chasing her around. It was a good idea as she didn't do one thing I said all day, le sigh. I am not someone who typically wears such a bright color, so when I do I try to keep it fairly neutral elsewhere. My jewelry was all Rocksbox. I picked a few items I knew would be perfect for this. I opted for all rose gold, because obviously. I decided on an earring versus a necklace because of the neckline and put my hair up. I kept the shoe neutral because the jumpsuit is the star. I linked up the exact jumpsuit and some similar options for shoes.
