Travel Style

Sharing My Sole

I’m off to Florida today and looking forward to few days of relaxation and soaking in some vitamin D.  I travel a fair amount for work and I’m always trying to find ways to look pulled together, while staying comfortable and practical at the airport.  My travel style typically looks something like this…  A t-shirt with a jacket or blazer over it, jeans and flats or booties.

I’m going to take a little break from the blog to fully detox, but you can always follow along with my adventures on Instagram (and see what I’m wearing on vacation!)

Wardrobe Essentials, Part 2

leopard heels

 

Since the first Wardrobe Essentials post (check it out here) and my #NoSpendFeb cleanse, I have been making an effort to go through my closet and only invest in key pieces I really love.  Classics that will last.  Here are links to my second round of wardrobe favorites…

 

1. Leopard Heels.

Charles David:  Under $70

Sole Society:  Under $75 (A nice option for the office)

 

2. A Basic Cardigan.

Halogen:  Under $50 (I have this sweater in grey, black and navy)

LOFT:  Under $50

 

3. A Little Black Dress.

BB Dakota:  Under $90 (love the lace detail)

French Connection:  Under $170

 

4. A Pair of Skinny Denim.

Gap:  Under $70

AG:  Under $200 (an investment, but my favorite brand)

 

5. Pointed Toe Flats.

Sole Society: Under $70

Slouchy Pants

Sharing My Sole

 
The other day my Mom (Hi Mom!) mentioned that I always seem to be wearing jeans in my blog photos and I thought…  Well ya, because that’s what I wear in real life.  I have always appreciated well fitted, quality denim and basically I’m a jeans girl.  Apologies if you’re bored of my denim, these are my daily outfits.

But ta-da!  No jeans today!  Let’s talk about these pants for a moment, shall we?  I have been trying to figure out the whole slouchy pants trend for a while because they are basically like getting away with wearing sweatpants while somehow looking classy.  This is all approved in my book.  I paired these with a basic print blouse and trench, but also feel like I could go more casual with just a t-shirt and denim jacket.  Anyone?

And yes, it was incredibly windy when I look these photos.  Just to clarify.

Friday Favorites

Fri-Yay! We made it. This week felt both short and long, which is confusing, but I’m pretty happy it’s the weekend and I’m ready for a glass of wine. My weekend plans are pretty low-key which is perfect. I’ll be spending time with family and friends for a pre-Easter brunch and hopefully deep cleaning my house. (This is glamour).

A few favorites from around the web…

I may have found the perfect t-shirt at Nordstrom for $20. Stock up.

These Sperry Top-Siders are the cutest things ever and are on sale. I love the pattern mixing.

J.Crew has 25% off spring must haves, including this yellow dress which is perfection in my book. I feel like it would be flattering on everyone. I also love this clutch and my new favorite crossbody bag is on sale. It’s perfect for errands or going out. Ok and this bracelet.

I’ve received a bunch of questions about these mules. Yes they are comfy and seem to go with everything.

If you follow me on Instagram (@sharingmysole), you know I read The Girl On the Train and I need a new book for vacation next week. Going to consult this list. Any great book suggestions or great beach reads? Send them my way!

Slouch

Sharing My Sole

 
This spring transition weather has been ideal for throwing on slouchy oversized sweaters, and honestly is there anything more comfortable? I think not. Well, maybe a slouchy sweater while wearing yoga pants… Which typically happens on lazy weekend afternoons when indulging in Real Housewives marathons. I live a glamorous life, people.

LBD

It’s back to the grind after a very fun weekend with friends.  I talked about utility jackets in my last Bloggers Who Budget post and I feel like if it can casually pair well with a little black dress, then it’s a wardrobe necessity.  (This one from Old Navy is adorable and under $50. Go).

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday and hello spring! I’m looking forward to spending the weekend in Columbus with friends and enjoying some 60 degree (!!!) weather. Hope your weekend is wonderful!

A few favorites from around the web…

I mentioned these flats from Target a few weeks ago, but I tried them on this week and they immediately ended up in my basket. They are so cute and well made. And on sale for $20. Spring perfection.

I have been searching for the perfect contouring brush (seriously business, people) and this one is fantastic. I realize the price point may seem a little high, but I think a monkey could contour with this brush. And I’ve been using this bronzer, which is very natural and not at all orange. Go.

J.Crew is offering an extra 30% off sale. Love this cute little t-shirt and these classic flats. Plus these earrings have been on my wish list for weeks.

If you’re looking for a great pair of mules, try these.  They are awesome.  I scored them in light pink leather.

The Shift

Sharing My Sole

 
I found this dress back in January and it’s been quite versatile for all seasons. I wore it during our frigid winter with tights and boots and now it’s ideal for this spring weather. Sometimes there is nothing I love more than an easy shift dress, because I mean… comfort.

Number Seven

If you were expecting to see a green and festive St. Patrick’s Day outfit, then I’m afraid you’ve come to the wrong blog. I did, however, find a way to make it work with this lucky number seven. Follow me? I’m 0% Irish, but I 100% enjoy this t-shirt. Ok, I’m done here. Go enjoy a Guinness and have a great day.

Bloggers Who Budget: Spring Trends

Sharing My Sole

 

The Bloggers Who Budget series is back and this month we’re featuring our favorite spring trends under $75. Each spring when the temps finally reach upwards of 50 (!!!) I anxiously pull out my favorite utility jacket. And each year these jackets seem to reappear as a wardrobe staple. There are so many cute and affordable options right now (here, here and here), so I would suggest you grab one stat.

Let’s talk about this outfit for a moment, shall we? Now I realize there are a whole lot of patterns happening here, but I felt like a) it’s finally nice out and I wanted to wear something fun and b) it all seems to work together, right?
