Favorite Denim For Summer

If you’re anything like me, I love to wear denim all year round. I always need several pairs of jeans to throw on throughout the year. I wanted to share with you all my favorite denim jeans and shorts for summer with Grace and Lace Co. They are not a boutique, but they make every piece in their store which I love. It means that you are going to have a unique outfit. Also want to note that their jeans are the softest jeans I’ve owned and also fit anyone including petite size like myself. I am also curvy and I love the way these jeans fit. I linked all of the jeans below so you can easily shop for them.

First pair I want to highlight are these double cropped jeans. These are my favorite pair for summer since they are cropped which means they are cooler to wear. I also love the fit since they are a mid waist jeans, but still suck everything in. I’m wearing a size 4 in these and they fit true to size.

Second pair, are these distressed cuffed jeans. I love these for all year round. You can wear them in summer without being hot, but also wear them in the fall when temperatures are cooler. I love the distressing detail on these in particular cause it has a nice appropriate distressing detail. I also love the button detail on these jeans. I’m also wearing a size 4 in these.

Next I want to highlight their button fly denim shorts. I love these shorts for summer! You can literally wear them with anything. I also love the length on them. They aren’t too short but also not too long either. I wanted a pair of denim shorts that I could wear to church picnics and also out on dates and these are perfect for both. I’m wearing a size 4 in these and they fit true to size.

Last pair I want to show you all are these everyday jeans that are perfect for the spring and fall. I like these jeans for when I want to get dressed up more. They fit so nicely and are high waisted, plus they have a stretchy elastic band in the waist for comfort.

I hope you all enjoy these different denim jeans as much as I have. I linked all of them in this post. Check out my post on outfits to wear at home.

Summer to Fall Transition Outfit Ideas/Back to school wardrobe must haves

It’s crazy to think we are almost halfway through August and that school starts again. I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite fall transition outfits along with some essentials for your back to school wardrobe.

You can now shop my looks by clicking on the links in this blog post of visiting the Liketoknowit app and following me on there under the name beyoutifuladventure.

We have been keeping busy with our new home and still finishing lots of painting. I can’t wait to show you all the finishing project in a couple weeks when we get the flooring in and we are all settled. It’s crazy to think we are almost halfway through August and that school starts again. I wanted to share with you all some of my favorite fall transition outfits along with some essentials for your back to school wardrobe.

I love anything that is trendy, chic, and girly all at the same time! One of my favorite pieces to wear inside as we go into the fall season are cardigans. I love layering my clothes which is another reason I love fall so much! My absolute favorite cardigans right now are these B.P. Cardigans from Nordstrom. They are a soft material and fit so well, plus they have pockets. I just love pockets in my clothing so I don’t always have to carry my purse around everywhere. I got this cardigan in a grey and oatmeal color in a size XS. They definitely fit true to size.

I am also crushing on long sleeve and short sleeve tees. I found two from American Eagle I love, two from Nordstrom, and one from Target. There are definitely options when it comes to picking good tees. I love the fit the best with my Nordstrom ones and American Eagle ones since I am more petite and they fit the best! This coral and white tee is the perfect transition piece since it can be worn by itself or with a cardigan and it comes in so many other colors as well. I am wearing an XS and it is a little big in the neck area, so I would say it’s good to size down one. I also love the grey striped tee I have from American Eagle for under $30 because of the V neck and the soft material.

Shoes are always my favorite when it comes to fall. I love these adorable mauve mules I found for under $25 at Target. They run a little small, so I would recommend going up a half size. They are so comfy and can be worn with dresses or jeans. I also love these black over the knee boots from Amazon for under $50. They are such a steal! Normally over the knee boots run from $80-$130. They have a flatter heel which I love and fit my height which is 5’3″. The material is suede so you might want to spray them with some protective spray, but they are definitely a great fall boot and even into winter.

When it comes to back to school wardrobe must haves, I recommend grabbing some short sleeve or long sleeve tees, a couple cardigans, denim jeans, a few casual dresses and definitely some mules. I linked several here and in the liketoknowit app as well.

I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy the last couple weeks of summer! I’d love to hear from you all on what you think about these fall transition pieces. Feel free to leave a comment below.

XOXO,

My top favorite Nsale finds

It has been a busy week with moving and starting work on our new house. We are realizing more each day that we got ourselves a fixer upper, without the help of Johanna and Chip Gaines. We are painting all of our walls and having the flooring replaced which will be a huge change, but I will be sharing our updates in the next few weeks of our house. I realized today that the Nsale is ending this Sunday and I know you all are probably tired of hearing about it, but I wanted to share my favorite finds from it before it ends.

You can also now shop all my looks by following me on the LikeToKnowIt app!! Yayyy!! I will be adding a widget soon here to be able to shop as well.

 

Also, a quick reminder make sure to go and check out my most recent blog post on my teeth whitening routine and a giveaway for a free whitening kit!

 

Let’s start with my favorite tee I found from the Nsale! It’s so comfortable and fits so well. I love this color too cause you can wear it in summer and into fall with a cardigan as well. There are still a couple colors left in a couple sizes. It fits true to size and I am wearing an XS.

Another good find from the Nsale was these $31 cardigans! They are the perfect length even for a shorter girl like me and are so comfortable. I grabbed it in grey and tan, however I think there are only a couple colors left including black and grey in select sizes. I tagged some other cardigans from the sale that are still available and similar to it. It fits true to size, although I am wearing an XS in the oatmeal color and a Small in the grey. So you can either go your size or one size up too if you want more of an oversized look.

The one sweater I grabbed was this hot pink BP sweater. I absolutely love this one! It is probably the comfiest sweater I have ever owned. It is still in stock in two colors and sizes including this color in size XXS. It is a little loose fitting and I got an XS so I would say you can size down, unless you want more of the loose fit. It will be perfect in the fall or winter with some booties or over the knee boots.

I also got the Caslon tee for under $19 in burgundy and I love it. It has a fitter look to it, but it is such a great long sleeve tee. It is still available in black in an XS and other sizes in other colors. It fits true to size and I am wearing an XS. If you are worried about it being too tight I would maybe size up one.

These are what made it to my closet from the Nsale and are definitely my favorites! I linked a couple other items I liked, but didn’t get above as well. Happy Shopping!! If you have any ideas for things to do in Charleston, I would love to know! We planned our trip for October and are so excited! I seriously can’t wait for fall and being able to wear all these fall finds.

Hope you all have a great week!

XOXO,

Favorite Summer Accessories

love summertime and wearing sundresses as you all know! I wanted to share some of my favorite simple accessories that go with several different outfits.

I hope you all have had a great weekend! I can’t believe how close we are to July 4th already. We had a fun weekend visiting Frederick, Md on Friday. We both have the day off so we usually take some time to go on a fun adventure together. I wanted to share with you all some of our favorite spots in Frederick and also some of my favorite summer accessories.

Frederick has a beautiful downtown with shops and restaurants. It also has a canal that runs right on the inside of the town. You can walk down there and grab a bite to eat or grab a favorite dessert at Cakes to Die For. We always make an effort to go there for a treat, they have amazing vegan/gluten free brownies. We are still trying out restaurants downtown, but a good place is Firestone’s. They make a lot of good food and can make anything gluten free there too. We also did a little bit of shopping for me at Francesca’s in Frederick. I will be sharing some of those looks in the next few weeks from there.

I love summertime and wearing sundresses as you all know! I wanted to share some of my favorite simple accessories that go with several different outfits.

Purses

One of my favorite trends this year is a straw crossbody bag. I love how you can wear it with jean shorts and a tank or with a maxi dress and heels. It’s so versatile for summer outfits. I shared my favorite one above from Amazon for $22 and a couple others I love.

I recently came across a white floral embroidered clutch at Francesca’s and I love it. It’s more of a dressier purse, but goes with any color. I got mine for $38 and linked it above.

Earrings

I am loving all the statement earrings this year. I have probably bought five pairs in different colors. My current favorite place to find statement earrings is at Target. I found my white tassel earrings from there and recently my turquoise tassel earrings as well. They have different earrings and colors to choose from. The brand is called sugarfix by Baublebar. Most of the earrings run around $13-$15.

Shoes

One of my favorite accessories is shoes. I am loving the espadrille wedges this year. I found a nude pair at J.Crew Factory on sale for $40. They normally run around $98, however J. Crew Factory normally runs a lot of sales and discounts. I found my black wedges at Charlotte Russe for $30. They normally have a lot of shoes at an affordable price.

I also love to find shoes that are comfortable and flat. My favorite place currently is Target. I found both my black sandals and my tan slides there for around $20. Both shoes run true to size and I linked both of them here for you.

I’d love to hear from you all what some of your favorite summer accessories are and what you are looking foreword to the most this summer! Hope you all had a great weekend!

XOXO,

Autumn
