Soft Bell Sleeve Top

Guys, bell sleeve tops are super hard for me to turn down lately! I think they’re so cute and fun. I wanted to link this one below before it sells out. It’s the perfect taupe color and so so soft. It can be worn on its own, but I think it would be really cute with a utility vest for fall. It’s a really good transitional piece, I definitely think it could be paired with jean or white shorts until it cools off enough for jeans. Speaking of jeans, these AG Jeans are my absolute favorite pair and I wear them constantly. They’re the perfect medium wash. I love that they’re so stretchy and comfortable. They are also linked below. Lastly, I highly recommend these booties! They have a very small heel, they’re perfect for walking long distances. Shoes of all kinds seem to give me blisters but these have been gentle on my feet so far! The taupe color is great for fall, they’re the perfect fall staple.

Game Day Series: Red and White Gingham

Hey guys! August means football season is finally here! I’m so excited. College football is one of my favorite things in the whole world. I attended OSU for a year before transferring to ECU.  After I received my bachelors at ECU, I graduated from OU with my Masters in Social Work. I’ve lived in Norman and Stillwater. Norman is definitely my favorite town of the two. But honestly, I love both towns, schools and teams. Billy and my family are diehard OU fans, so sometimes I have to root for OSU just in spite. I’ve even started to love the NFL, but mainly just because I love the Dallas Cowboys. Dez, Dan, and Dak? Need I say more?

One of my favorite things about college football is game day fun! There is this indescribable buzz in the air on game days in Norman. Even if you aren’t a football person, the energy is so contagious. Of course if you’re going to tailgate, you need the perfect outfit to rep your team! So, to spread some spirit and help you out if you’re looking for said outfit, I have decided to start a game day series where I’ll be sharing both orange and crimson looks throughout August and September!

I’m starting with this red gingham dress for you Sooner gals! I originally ordered this dress for 4th of July, but it wasn’t delivered until July 5th. Bummer, right? The more I thought about it, I knew it was versatile enough it could be used for a different purpose. Then it came to me! I think it would be perfect for an early season OU game! We will have warm temps well into September, so a dress will definitely make things cool and effortless. This little number is only $22. I’ve paired it with wedges but you could definitely wear it with sandals or converse to make it more comfortable for game day. Photos by Melanie Foster Photography.

Topshop Look Alike

I’m one of those girls who go crazy for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every year. I literally purchase my whole fall wardrobe in just a few days. This Topshop sweater instantly caught my eye. But, apparently it caught everyone’s eye because it sold out super fast. Since then I’ve watched it come in and out of stock. Mostly, out of stock. I’ve finally found one that’s super similar and have linked it below!

Steve Madden Jole Dupe

Hi friends! A few weeks ago I shared my favorite summer sandals. They're a great Steve Madden nude slide sandal, find that post here. Well, as great as they are, I've found something even better! A more affordable dupe! These are seriously close to identical. The Steve Madden pair cost me $70, and the dupe pair are available at Target for $24.99! I've linked them below. They also come in black!

Off The Shoulder Embroidered Dress

Hello hello! Happy (almost) Hump Day! I noticed this dress is still in stock in Dillard’s at Sooner Fashion and online so I wanted to hop on it and share it real quick! It’s so cute and fits very comfortable. Perfect for this hot weather we’re having lately. I am busy running errands and preparing to leave for vacation all week. What are you guys up to this week?

Mix Print Kimono

Hey guys! I found the best kimono and wanted to share it with you! I love the print and colors. It’s perfectly flowy. Below I paired it with shorts (because it’s blazing hot here in OKC). But, I think it would also be really cute with distressed jeans or white jeans. I also linked a dupe for this Rebecca Minkoff handbag, it’s less than $30!

Embroidered Dress and Teacher Plan

Happy Monday! I wanted to fill you all in on something going on in my professional life! Recently I accepted an offer to participate in what my department is calling a “Teacher Plan”. Our hospital’s census typically dips pretty low in the summer, so you have all of these full-time employees with not much work to do (this is tricky because sometimes you can have a small amount of patients, but they have complex and numerous needs). But the thought behind it is, to help with productivity issues, one employee will be off 8 weeks during the summer, returning September 11th. I eagerly volunteered! I keep my title, position, benefits, etc., but I get some much needed time away from work. Being a social worker is so emotionally rewarding but also extremely exhausting. I thought this teacher plan would be the perfect way to practice some self-care. I’m so excited to have some time off. Once upon a time I considered becoming a teacher (not because I have a passion for teaching) but just so I could get the summer off. Lol. I plan to relax, take a couple of trips, and become more diligent in posting on my blog and Instagram. I can’t wait to see what this little break from work has in store! I’ll keep you guys posted! 

Also, I’m sharing this dress below! I bought mine at Cayman’s in Norman, OK. But it’s also available online.

Summer Sweater 

Hello! I hope the short work week has treated you well. It was so nice to have a holiday mid week! Nothing better than a short work week, in my opinion! This weekend we are going to a sweet friend’s baby shower. Which sparked the question of, what does one wear to a baby shower in the heat of summer? Despite the warm weather, I’ve been doing my best lately to invest in pieces that can work in cool or warm weather. This sweather is the perfect example of that. It’s comfortable to throw on during the evenings with jean shorts or white pants, but will be so cute to transition into fall with jeans and booties. When I ordered this online it was full price, but now it’s on sale! To shop, click the link below the photos. Photos by Melanie Foster Photography
