Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. You all loved my camel/tan winter coat from last year, and Uniqlo currently has one (here) that is SUPER similar and comes in tan and three other colors (I want the gray)!
  2. Blogger love of the week: Sarah and her monochromatic outfit for the win! Now I just need a striped dress and a J.Crew field jacket in every color…starting with this cobalt blue one! ;)
  3. I’ve felt these new tees at Target a million times, and they are the softiest, coziest things ever.
  4. The Everygirl has rounded up the 10 fall essentials you need for your fall wardrobe, and I agree with the majority of them (this girl, aka me, says no to backpacks…and yes to crossbody purses)!
  5. I love that button front skirts are back for another round this season, and I love this corduroy option that comes in pretty much every color ever!
  6. This button down shirt does all the print mixing work for you and would easily make the transition from work to weekend!
  7. 19 muddy puppies that are impossible to stay mad at (seriously, can #6 be mine?)!
  8. How cute is this cherry print blouse? The best part is the blouse can handle the kitchy-ness since it is a black/white print! Stop with the vintage blouse cuteness, Loft…my wallet can’t take it (okay, don’t stop)! 
  9. If you all haven’t checked it out yet, Old Navy and People teamed together to showcase 50 states of great style. There are some great bloggers in there, and one of my favorites, Alissa, is representing Kansas! Check out her style and all the other stylish states*! 
  10. I don’t know if I could pull it off, but I love this suede trench coat for fall! How cute would it be with a stripe tee and jeans?!

*I’ll be available for Indiana next year, Old Navy…hint hint! ;)

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. This whole outfit on repeat alllllllllllll fall long, please!
  2. Blogger love of the week: I’ve been obsessing over this perfect chambray dress look on Cathy that features my favorite knotted Target belt! Simplicity is something perfection, folks!
  3. Loft has a fox graphic tee (here), and my mom found it before my fox-everything-radar even went off. You better believe I will be ordering this during the upcoming Labor Day sales…and my fellow fox fans should too!
  4. Someone get me this Hungry Hungry Humans set so I can play this at home. How cute are the USA gymnasts?!
  5. New Carpool Karaoke alert…this time with Britney Spears! Definitely not one of the best ones (#AdeleandSiaforever), but still good (especially the last minute)!
  6. Whoever designed these adorable ankle strap block heels at Anne Taylor deserves a major raise. So cute and unexpectedly fun!
  7. Want to know how much goes on behind-the-scenes of how your favorite winter coat is made? Then be sure to check out this article from J.Crew…the colors, you guys! The colors! <3
  8. Polka dots for life (especially in sweater form)!
  9. Nerd moment over here. Someone is crocheting tiny Pokemon and leaving them at various locations in Texas, and they are the cutest things EVER. Sometimes the world is really adorable you guys! Now someone get me a flight out there, stat! 
  10. This sweatshirt might say goodbye, but I’m saying hello to it…in my shopping cart! ;) #dadjokesfordays

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. Stop what you’re doing…this is not a drill. J.Crew Factory has a new navy/white polka dot vest…and it’s perfection! Snag it here!
  2. Blogger love of the week: My internet friends are the cutest, and seriously…how gorgeous does Nicole look in this dress? A-MAZ-ING.
  3. Loft’s utility blouses are my favorite work-appropriate blouses. I wear mine all the time when I can’t figure out what to wear. This new print (here) is soooo pretty, and I love the bright red! Find all the other new prints/solids here!
  4. 25 dogs who are just so dumb…that they’re cute. Seriously, #1…what happened to you, buddy?! 
  5. Affordable neck scarves in all kinds of prints and color combinations? One of each, please!
  6. Obsessed doesn’t even begin to cover my love for this cardigan. The colors, the print, the wrap style! Looooove.
  7. Dear Girl Scouts, I love you. Thank you for promising to bring me not one, but TWO s’mores cookies next year. You better believe that I’ll be buying 10 20 one or two boxes come 2017!
  8. This  navy/white stripe skirt might be the best thing I’ve seen all week…minus those s’mores cookies.
  9. A personality test based on your favorite type of candy? Okay, this was slightly creepy, because I thought there was NO WAY this could work and then I read the results of both my top candy (Reese’s) and my second favorite (Starbursts). They were both SPOT ON!
  10. These small zip pouches might be both the cutest and chicest thing I’ve seen all week. But the dilemma? Which one to get?!

Ten Things I’ve Loved This Past Week on The Internet:

  1. I had to order this suede skirt over the weekend, because I missed the boat on the trend last year, and I’m determined not to repeat it again. This one looks long enough for my long-as-a-giraffe’s-legs, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it is a keeper!
  2. Blogger love of the week: I thought Fran looked so pretty and pulled together (but simple…in a good way) in this blue shirt dress, that of course I had to order it for myself. Perfect for summer (as she so eloquently describes…sorry boys) and for layering in fall!
  3. This purse is perfect for all my future fall looks…and would be able to be worn with just about any outfit!
  4. Loved this essay from the President on being a feminist. It’s important, because we’re all important.
  5. And thanks to Old Navy, here’s a vote we can ALL get behind!
  6. I’m loving this unexpected grid print dress in navy and white! Perfect for fall outfits and work wear!
  7. Emily Henderson can do no wrong in my eyes when it comes to home decor, so I loved this video on her nanny’s home makeover! So pretty!
  8. Loving the bandana trend lately (this one is my current fav)? J.Crew’s got us covered with 4 different ways to work the trend!
  9.  I like my makeup, just like I like my clothes…on a budget, so here is 10 E.l.f. beauty products for under $10! Score!
  10. Dear J.Crew Factory, did you design this shirt just for me?! Stripes…in my favorite color combination! Say no more.

Gingham Dress

While I mainly prefer separate pieces to dresses (more mix and match capabilities), I certainly have found some dresses this summer that I love and continue to wear over and over again.

And while I think this may be the first time that this dress has made an appearance on the blog, it definitely was not the first time I had worn it! This pretty, gingham number is from the Maison Jules line at Macy’s and is the perfect gingham print. The Maison Jules line always tends to run short on me, but not this dress. It’s the perfect length for work (styled above) or for play with sandals/wedges and a denim jacket (or no jacket if it continues to be 90+ where you live too)!

While I don’t know how often I’ll be able to wear it in fall and winter, I am going to try to squeeze as many wears in as I possible can between now and then. Since everything is better in gingham…and in a belt that knots itself!

ps. If you buy this dress, it can always double as a Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz costume for Halloween. You’re welcome…and I’m over 2.5 months early! ;)
