Leopard Earrings c/o || Hexagon Ring c/o || Rose Coin Necklace c/o || Eyelash Sweater || Pants (Similar) ||  Cap Toe Pumps || 

Good morning and happy Tuesday! I recently came across a jewelry company, J.Bubs, and fell in love with all of their pieces. Their jewelry has a modern glam feel to it with affordable prices and on trend pieces. Their dainty items, 3 of which I’m wearing above, are my favorite. The hexagon ring is 14k gold plated and is perfect for layering or wearing alone. The leopard kite earrings have a faux fur feel (very soft to touch) and look incredibly chic. The rose coin necklace is 18k gold plated and oh so lovely to wear. Coin necklaces are all the rage right now and with good reason. I chose the “rose” coin since it reminds me of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, one of my favorite Disney movies. Use the code amanda25 for 25% off of your J.Bubs order. The code is good for 48 hours!

Good morning, friends! I’ve been a long time fan of the color pink. I use it in everything from my clothes, shoes, accessories, home decorating, stationary, kitchen appliances, and more. It’s the one color that has pretty much taken over every corner of my life. This outfit mixes a few different shades of pink with pops of leopard for a look that works for the office as well as going out for drinks afterwards. I particularly love wearing dusty rose shades in the fall and winter, including this pair of pants. The color is absolutely gorgeous. I couldn’t find the color listed online, but did find these in the store.

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! As the weather starts to turn from chilly to downright freezing, I love to find pieces that remind me of being cuddled up in the coziest blanket. This peacoat Sherpa coat from Chicwish does just that. It has an oversized fit, perfect for layering sweaters or even another jacket under for those wind whipping days. I felt warm and toasty all weekend long while wearing this. I also thought I’d mention how the pockets are nice and roomy. It’s a small detail, but one I truly appreciated for being able to keep my hands warm and also to carry various items in them. I’m a huge fan of pockets!

Good morning, friends! ‘Tis the season to add a little sparkle to your everyday looks. While I love the classic ensemble with a mix of pretty plaid and some ruffles, it’s the shimmering jewelry pieces that elevate this outfit. How gorgeous are they?! I’m particularly swooning over the embellished barette. Time and time again, I’m drawn to classic styles that stand the test of time such as this plaid ruffle skirt, navy sweater, and navy pea coat. All are key pieces that could have been worn twenty years ago or twenty years from now.

Rainbow Sweater || Skirt || Blush Bow Flats || Pink Vanity Bag || Rainbow Earrings || 

Happy Thursday, everyone! We’ve had quite a few dreary days lately in my neck of the woods, which always calls for an extra helping of cheeriness courtesy of these rainbow brights. When the gloomy days get to be a bit much, I like to add in some brightness via my wardrobe. It’s amazing how these happy colors can change the outlook and perspective of a gray day. I’ve been a long time fan of wearing pastels well into the winter months for this very reason. This whole outfit, while not your traditional fall colors, makes me have the biggest smile on my face. It’s a mood booster!

Blush Sweater || Blazer || Houndstooth Ruffle Skirt || Blush Vanity Bag || Burgundy Heels (Old, Similar) || Tortoise Necklace || Ava Bracelet || Ava’s Dress || 

Good morning and happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did some antiquing and hit up a local craft show and a harvest fest, both of which were fabulous! They definitely put me in a fall state of mind, even though the weather decided to switch back to summer for a brief period. We had temperatures reaching into the 90s. Also, for my friends and family in the southeastern part of the U.S., specifically North and South Carolina, please stay safe! We’re praying for you! 

 While I love the rich hues of autumn, there is one color I wear year round, regardless of the season. Some may shy away from blush or rosy colors this time of the year, but they blend beautifully with fall’s vibrant color palette. On Ava, we see the very popular color combo of gray and pink, usually mixed with some white, for fall. Imagine a cozy pink sweater with white jeans and gray suede over the knee boots. I’m wearing some warmer tones to mix blush with and the ever popular classic houndstooth print. Pairing an accessory in blush can be an alternative way to work the color into your autumn ensemble as well. This vanity box bag, which Ava and I both love!, has a wonderful vintage vibe that works very well with the nostalgic feeling Fall tends to have. The color is gorgeous along with the gold hardware.

Star Sweater || Sweater Blazer || White Jeans || Similar Kate Spade Bag || Similar Gold Heels || Star & Moon Earrings || Star And Moon Necklace || Ava Bracelet (A Gift From My Brother & His Fiancé) || 

Happy Thursday, everyone! Last year star and celestial prints were everywhere and I’m happy to report they’re still going strong! This midnight blue sweater with gold stars is the perfect weight for the in-between season and also for layering when the air turns crisp. The golden stars are sewn into the fabric for a high quality look. I used the stars as inspiration for the details in this look with all gold jewelry and shoes.

I know the old saying of not wearing white after Labor Day, but rules were made to be broken and this one certainly is. White jeans in the fall is one of my favorite looks! You can wear white after summer by simply paying attention to the fabric. White tweed makes sense while white linen does not. We’ve been having some cooler temperatures lately making this sweater blazer an essential. I love the relaxed feel yet tailored look. The best of both worlds!

Good morning, friends! While my love for dresses knows no bounds and I do find them to be an easy creation of the perfect outfit, I also have quite an affinity for skirts. Their versatility and creativity make them a fun alternative to the all in one outfit. This olive bow skirt is one of those pieces that captures the feel of fall and seamlessly works with a variety of styles. Imagine the skirt with a black and white striped top, leopard pumps, and a mustard bag. Or how about a creamy white sweater, navy coat and bag, and cognac boots. Even a simple white or black tee with some flats (in a pop of color!) would look great. Also, POCKETS!! Anytime I see pockets on a dress or skirt ~swoon~ I’m sold! I went with a chambray top that is soooo comfy and soft. They are some of the best button down shirts that I own. Also, a cognac bag (my go-to for fall) and some strappy sandals

Pink Blazer || White Button Down || Circle Bag || Blush Bow Flats || Boot Crop Jeans || Pixie Stud Earrings ||  

Happy Friday, friends! Did anyone happen to watch the two night ABC special of The Story Of The Royals?? It was SO good!!! I mean, what a riviting emotional rollercoaster. I especially love how they wove pop culture into the story too. I’ve always been fascinated by the Royals and this was truly one of the best documentaries I’ve seen on them. They even had a whole section devoted to JFK and Jackie, which was of course extra special for me. Obviously, the parts with Princess Diana, Kate and Meghan were highlights as well. 

 I always strive for my weekend looks to have a classic elegant feel to them. Simple and polished with a relaxed feel. I wore this outfit recently when I went to go see The Spy a whole Dumped Me. It was the perfect movie going look. Something I could be comfortable in, while the blazer added extra warmth in case the theater got chilly. An update from my usual skinny jean is this cropped boot cut version. I was hesitant at first, but actually fell in love with them. I would have liked to have gotten a petite size, but these sold out quickly in a sale. I instead opted for the regular length in my normal size. Seeing as how they’re cropped, the regular length fit me like an ankle style. 

I hope everyone has an amazing weekend!

Burgundy Bow Sweater || Corduroy Skirt || M. Gemi Loafers c/o (Use Code AMANDAB40 for 40% off your order!) || Similar Bag || Mom Bracelet || 

God morning, everyone! This was the outfit I wore to see Crazy Rich Asians a few days ago and it was perfect for the weather. We’ve been having some cooler days and even cooler nights, which is odd since I’ve always assoaciated August with ghastly heat, but i’ll definitely take the cool break! A light knit sweater and skirt felt comfortably cozy for the evenings events. The bow-neck on the sweater is beyond cute and adds the sweetest feminine touch. I’m in love with the wine shade too. The color will carry you through fall and winter. I have a jacket in the same shade and wore it almost every day last year. There’s also a gray and white version of the sweater. The corduroy mini skirt is a beautiful shade of warm cognac, perfect for mixing with all of autumn’s amazing hues. Last but not least, these driving moccasins from M.Gemi. The shade I’m wearing is grape. Another color that will seamlessly carry into fall. These are one of their staple pieces and I can definitely see why. They’re a true moccasin construction being stitched together by hand in Italy from a single piece of leather. They feel snug at first, but will stretch to fit perfectly on your foot. The leather is nice and soft too.

Pineapple Stripe Top || Nantucket Reds  || Similar Wedges || Sunglasses || Arc Bag || Earrings || Pearl And Anchor Bracelet || DW Watch c/o || 

Good morning, friends! Ever since visiting Nantucket back in 2014, I’ve been on the search for the perfect pair of Nantucket Reds to add to my coastal New England attire. I came across these at J. Crew Factory and was instantly smitten with them. Everything from the color, length, and fit was exactly what I had been searching for. The color pairs very well with navy blue, white, light blue, and stripes. The most common color seen with Nantucket Reds is navy blue. I went with blue and white stripes with the cutest pineapple print. I’m especially loving the little pop of yellow gold the pineapples give. It’s no surprise that my favorite guy, JFK, sported Nantucket Red as well. I mean, he did live on Cape Cod after all. 

 Nantucket Reds are typically worn in place of khakis or chinos and are found most commonly on Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, and Cape Cod. The official Reds are produced and distributed by Murray’s Tuggary Shop located on Main Street on Nantucket Island.

Good morning, friends! This is one dress that I can definitely say is perfect for summer. Not only are the blue and white stripes effortlessly classic, but I actually stayed cool while wearing this in humid weather. It’s on sale now too! I know this will be on re-peat until the end of summer, I’ve already worn it three more times. It’s fits great and is comfortable to wear. I’m also impressed by the quality of the material (lightweight) and how this dress could be worn to work, a weekend BBQ, or to the beach. It works for so many different occasions all while remaining totally chic!

Good morning, friends! I love the Americana nautical feel this outfit has. Maybe even a little dash of Parisian style too! It’s all of the stripes, haha. I’ve been wearing red, white, and blue quite a bit lately. Blame it on the 4th of July, but they’re also a truly classic Summer combo of colors. Stripes will always be one of my favorite prints to wear. They’re a go-to in my wardrobe. I tend to favor a small or medium size stripes and stay away from large or bold ones, though I do have one large stripe top. This is definitely a look to keep in mind when thinking of the summer holidays as well including Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Labor Day.

Good morning and happy Friday! This was a look I wore to celebrate Earth Day last weekend with Ava. We went to a local farm to enjoy the nice weather, see some farm animals, and of course get some ice cream! The line was literally out the door and in the parking lot for some tasty ice cream. Everyone had the same idea as us, haha. We took a walk all around the grounds and found this dreamy little spot back by the stream where the sun was shining through as it was setting. It was so relaxing. Ava was showing me some of her super hero poses and I did some with her! Needless to say we had a blast! 

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
