Spotlight Weekly Link-Up | Week 100: Chambray

July 29, 2015
Wearing: Nordstrom top (via the #NSale- make sure to size up! I'm wearing a Large) | Nordstrom denim (size up) | Cathy Jean mules (LOVE these) | Tory Burch bag | Alex & Ani bracelets | Similar Sunglasses (only $5) | Helen's Jewels 'twisted orb cuff' c/o

Hey ladies! Thanks for visiting the blog today! We are celebrating 100 Link-Ups with a blogger favorite: chambray! I am in love with anything chambray, so when I spotted this BP top during the #Nsale, I had to have it! It comes in four colors and is super soft! I had to get a Large (which really feels more like a medium!) and while I love how soft and versatile it is, I must admit that it wrinkles easy - luckily I'm not one to have the iron or steamer out 24/7, so I can live with it! Just a heads up ;)

All the pieces I'm wearing, other than my Tory Burch bag are under $60 so you should definitely do some quick shopping if you'd like to recreate this outfit! I'm all about budget buys these days, as I'm currently trying to get back to my pre-pregnancy sizes and want to minimize the amount of clothing I buy until then! Hope you're having a fabulous week!

The lovely Jacqueline and I post our link-ups every Thursday! This week our theme is chambray! Or you can pick any fashion/beauty related post to link up! Come back weekly to visit us!

Voodoo Vixen

July 28, 2015

Hi loves! Happy hump day. I'm sharing a summery printed dress that would be perfect for a Hawaiian vacay! Man, do I wish I was going to Hawaii sometime soon! It will be a while for me, but that's okay :) I'm perfectly content right now sporting this dress for lunch at my favorite local Mexican restaurant instead.

One of the things I love about this dress from Voodoo Vixen is the cut. Anything that's a-line is perfection in my book... it instantly makes the outfit feel more girly. The dress is definitely longer since the line is vintage-inspired, but that's okay for this short-legged girl because I paired the dress with the perfect ankle strapped sandals to help elongate and separate the leg/foot area. I hope this is all making sense, but basically, ankle straps = good with long dresses ;)

Hope you have a great rest of the week! Don't forget to link-up your chambray tomorrow! It's our 100th link-up! Can you believe we've had that many?!


July 26, 2015

Happy Monday! I'm starting the week with a super casual outfit featuring this comfy, black tee from Triple Thread! I've actually never been a t-shirt type of girl, but after my baby came I have been living in all kinds of tees! V-necks, slub knits, pretty much anything that's soft, comfy, and easy to pull up or down for nursing. I'm prety sure I've purchased around 10-12 t-shirts int he past two months, so I've definitely become an expert.

Two things I've learned when styling tees:

1. Make sure it isn't too big or small. You want a 'just right' fit so that it doesn't look like you're swimming in the tee, but also so it doesn't look like your'e trying to muscle-shirt it. 

2. Pair with statement accessories for a more 'dressed up' look. I love this fringe-like necklace from Helen's Jewels, and wanted to pair it with these Sam Edelman fringe booties from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, because the more fringe the better!

Spotlight Weekly Link-Up | Week 99: Dressed Up

July 23, 2015

Hey ladies! For our 'dressed up' theme I styled a fun, striped skirt paired with a flirty, leopard top for a little pattern mixing! I am in love with this gorgeous statement necklace from Happiness Boutique and I think it went with this outfit perfectly! Since this is supposed to be a dressy outfit, I wore heels for the first time in like two months, and I loved it! I went with red heels to match my red lips. I think any chic accessories you have that are red, whether they're shoes or handbags definitely look great when you pair them with a red lip up top! My favorite red lipstick is Maybelline "are you red-dy" lol so cheesy but a great shade! I have heard great things about NARS 'heatwave' as well, but have never tried it myself ;)

Bloggers Who Budget | Summer Dress for Less

July 20, 2015
Wearing: Old Navy dress (size down) | Alfani 'Kyrah' wedges | vintage Coach bag | similar sunniesInPink disco cuff c/o 

Happy Monday! I'm sharing a summer dress from Old Navy for this month's Bloggers Who Budget theme Summer Dress for Less! Unfortunately this dress is sold out, but I found a super cute version of it with sleeves from Anthro for Fall! I stuck with minimal gold accessories and my hipster chic vintage Coach station bag (I used to be a vintage Coach bag collector, I still have so many!) Hope you have a fabulous start to your week, and thanks for stopping by ;)

Spotlight Weekly Link-Up | Week 98: Favorite Shorts

July 15, 2015

Hi loves! Today I'm sharing another look featuring some amazing distressed denim shorts from Target! I shared these in a lighter wash last week. I am in love with both the price and the fit. I'm still working on getting my pre-baby body back, so these are a great in-between until I want to invest in some Rag & Bone shorts (which are a little more pricey!) Maybe next Fall ;) 

Anyway, I paired the shorts with a new top from Byer CA! It's called the Mission Viejo studded top, and since I used to live in Mission Viejo, it seemed like a perfect addition to my wardrobe. Not only do I adore the studded detailing on front, but I love the open back!

Lastly, I actually have invested in two Tory Burch 'York' totes. One is a light beige color (I believe it's called Light Oak on the site) and this black one. I purchased the large version, and I have to say that I am totally smitten. These double as a great school bag, diaper bag, airplane tote, or just a normal, every-day bag for those of you who shove everything you own into your purse like me! If you haven't pulled the trigger on one of these lovelies yet, I strongly recommend that you do! It comes in 8 colors!

Hi loves! It's the most wonderful time of the year :) The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is upon us. You saw the Sam Edelman boots I scored from the sale in yesterday's post, now here's some of my other purchases and favorites from the sale! I wish I could afford everything, but I've been good about not splurging too much! I am a mama after all, and have others to take care of now! 

I've separated my picks into two categories, end of summer (above) and early Fall (below). The prices are just out of this world, so let me know what you decide to grab! Remember, all Nordstrom Cardholders get Early Access and are able to shop the sale now! But don't worry, if you don't have a Nordstrom card, the sale opens up to the public on July 17th! Make sure to preview the lookbook beforehand though to choose what you want to grab before it sells out ;)

Mellow Yellow

July 12, 2015
Wearing: Zara dress (similar) | Sam Edelman booties (via the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!) | Prada bag c/o Trendlee | Kendra Scott necklace via Rocksbox c/o (get your first month free with code livingincolorxoxo) Helen's Jewels 'twisted orb cuff' c/o

Hi loves! I'm super excited to share this flowy dress with you... it's one of my favorite outfits lately - I'm really trying to step out of my comfort zone and take some fashion risks. I used to try all kinds of trendy things (cue lace socks with mary jane sandals in like 2012) but I've been in a total rut. Yellow is one of my favorite colors. Fun fact: I used to drive a yellow car! But I don't think I own any clothes that are yellow so when I came across this boho-chic dress at Zara, I knew it had to be coupled with some Sam Edelman fringe boots and a super fabulous Prada bag from Trendlee! Trendlee is a service where you can purchase super discounted preowned designer bags! You can get 5% off of your Trendlee purchase using the code liveincolor.
