Five Favorite Things: Abercrombie & Fitch

Plaid Flannel Shirt$58 – $29

We’re doing things a little bit differently today! Normally, we would call this post “Five Favorite Pins,” but instead I’m changing it up because I want to write about something that’s quite important to me. All year, I have had to defend Abercrombie & Fitch to friends of mine. I would tell people that they’ve changed, their stores are no longer as fragrant as they used to be, their brand is labeled as obnoxiously across all of their tees, in some cases, you may not even see the moose! On top of that, you won’t be unhappy with their prices. On a couple of occasions this year, I’ve been in their stores and walked out a happy customer with basics that I never thought I’d be able to find there. So instead of just telling you this time around, I’m going to show you with 5 recent pieces from their website that I would purchase today (if I had the money!)

You should know though that they are having a massive sale because of Black Friday. You’re welcome!

2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Josephine Skriver and Harry Styles behind her

Full disclosure: I don’t actually shop for my intimates at Victoria’s Secret! I love watching the show every year though because of what a production it is and how over the years, the models are no longer just people on a runway, but you actually get to “know” the angels leading up to the big event. As time went on, Victoria’s Secret increased the number of angels and started giving us a glimpse into more of the behind-the-scenes so that we could begin relating to them. Now I know that some of the looks on the runway are really just for show and not going to be sold in stores, but that’s some of what makes this experience so fun, right? Here are my favorite looks:

Dress – Aritzia / Cardigan – Mom’s / Shoes – Vince Camuto / Bag – Madewell

When I was commuting up to the city for work from South Bay, one of the things that I enjoyed the most was catching all of the morning light and sometimes the middle of a sunrise to start the day. Maybe it was because I was arriving to work early or maybe it was just because it was summer and there was more light in general. These days, I can definitely feel winter coming on and I’m looking forward to the days when I can pull out my open-toed heels to wear again to work. For now, I’ll just take the wool socks.

Rowan Blanchard x Edit Magazine

I’ve had a soft spot for Rowan ever since she was the star of “Girl Meets World.” Even though the show has ended, she’s quickly becoming a powerhouse for young women everywhere and taking a stand against some of the most important issues being talked about today. In this interview though, she speaks about how maybe she might have spoken too soon on some of these things. Maybe that’s true, whatever the case though; I appreciate her for her awareness. After all, she’s still a young woman coming into her own and learning along the way.

Golden Girl

Hat – Nordstrom / Dress – Aritzia / Duster – Azalea

When I stumbled across the most perfect duster earlier this year, I was determined to find a way to wear it with everything. This was a tough buy for me though. I worried that having a sweater like this would continuously make me feel shorter than I was. I struggled wondering if it was worth the purchase and how I might wear it with dresses, jackets, and jeans. Ultimately, that hassle that I worried about was actually non-existent because it was such a good buy. I’ve worn it with many pieces from my closet at this point, but this is actually one of my favorite outfit pairings for when I’m caught in a pickle and feel like I have “nothing to wear.” It’s my favorite because this dress is already the number one piece I throw on for those cases and this sweater is an easy toss on right after that. I love the contrast of the shorter little black dress with the long duster and I’m following my usual pattern of sticking to one color mainly and adding in the gray duster to piece it all together.

Balmain x Victoria’s Secret Preview

I was going to say earlier this week that this is the first time I’m seeing this much media coverage leading up to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. It’s true, but now that we’ve reached the end of the week, I’m realizing that it’s half positive and half negative. Katy Perry (rumored to be performing) and Gigi Hadid along with several other models will no longer be present for the show. The reasons are…interesting, but I’ll let you look all of that up yourself!

Despite those hiccups, the show will go on and I’m still looking forward to it. This year, the brand is collaborating with Balmain and this is probably the segment that I’m most excited about. Just look at these wings on Jasmine Tookes made out of safety pins. Can we just… have these forever? I have been hearing that there’s a section of the show that will be more punk than ever and with this preview, I’m confident that I’m going to love the rest of the looks.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show will air on CBS on November 28th. Stay tuned for a post featuring all of our favorite looks from it.

Emily Ratajkowski Launches Swimwear Label

For the first time ever, I’ve been thinking about swimsuit season in November. I have a good reason though. I’m headed to Palm Springs for New Year’s Eve this year – my first ever New Year’s Eve trip away from Seattle and I haven’t purchased a new swimsuit since 2016. I’ve been hitting up all my favorites including Beach Riot, but now it looks like I need to keep an eye on Emily Ratajkowski’s new swimsuit line – Inamorata Swim. Currently there are a few photos of inspo on the feed, but there are also a couple of her modeling what looks to be a part of her own line – a polka dotted one-piece (above) and an off-the-shoulder bikini.

It sounds like all will be revealed this week and we can’t wait to see the rest!

Let’s Taco ’bout It

Beanie – Aritzia / T-shirt – Urban Outfitters / Duster – Azalea / Denim – Citizens of Humanity / Heels – Vince Camuto

Up until this day, I had never really thought of putting all of these items together. This combination of a long duster with the high-waisted jeans and the addition of heels fascinated me. It was casual with a side of fancy and I didn’t hate it. My company recently moved offices and while I was SO ready to move, there were a lot of gems in our old spot that I probably will miss. One of those things is our various lunch outings. On this particular day, we decided to walk up the street to a food truck serving Mexican food that we had heard great things about. I can still remember my chicken quesadilla with extra guac pretty vividly!

Nordstrom’s 27/7 Curbside Pickup for the Holidays

Holiday shopping with Nordstrom just got a little bit easier! This holiday season, the retailer is offering up 24/7 curbside pickup at select stores for more convenience. We all know how much of a pain it is to go shopping during the holidays – to deal with crowds and the parking. Personally, I’d be worried about going in stores for fear of buying more than I had intended!

10 Nordstrom locations are offering this feature up in the week leading up to Christmas. How does it work?

Nordstrom customers who have placed a Buy Online & Pickup In-Store order can call or text their respective store’s Curbside Pickup phone number just 10 minutes before arriving, at which point a Nordstrom employee will meet customers with their merchandise.

I repeat. This is 24/7.

The retailer’s 24/7 Curbside Pickup will run from Dec. 16-24 at the following Nordstrom locations:┬áNordstrom Downtown Seattle (Seattle, WA), Nordstrom Bellevue Square (Bellevue, WA), Nordstrom Michigan Avenue (Chicago, IL), Nordstrom Oakbrook Center (Oak Brook, IL), Nordstrom NorthPark Center (Dallas, TX), Nordstrom Tysons Corner Center (Mclean, VA), Nordstrom The Westchester (White Plains, NY), Nordstrom South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa, CA), Nordstrom Fashion Valley (San Diego, CA) and Nordstrom Valley Fair (San Jose, CA).

Hold On To Your Hat

Hat – Nordstrom / Sweater – Madewell / Denim – Levi’s / Shoes – Vince Camuto

Doesn’t this outfit look like it belongs in a modern day western? White with black (or in this case dark grey for the denim) is my favorite color combo because of how versatile it is. I definitely didn’t need the hat for this occasion, but sometimes when you’re feeling a little too plain, it helps to add something extra. Jimmy and I took some great shots back when we were in our old neighborhood. I’ll miss all the brick!

A Darling Stoop

Top – Aritzia / Denim – Citizens of Humanity / Heels – Vince Camuto

Would you believe that I bought this entire outfit after seeing someone wear an almost-exact replica of it on Instagram?! Well, it’s true! It’s not a secret that I’m a huge fan of Instagram, but I love being inspired by what other people wear and seeing what I can create on my own with what I already have in my closet. In the case of this outfit, I only had the heels. This is the first time that I purchased an entire outfit solely because of this. It sounds crazy, I know, but it was just one of those things that I couldn’t stop thinking about. I love this little short-sleeved blouse. It is functional, feminine, and very chic. I like that you can tie a bow on the side or just one knot and leave the rest hanging. When I first tried on the top, it was a little bit more cropped than I had hoped. You can’t wear just any kind of denim with it. Turns out, out with all the denim I already had, wearing this top would leave my stomach completely out. That’s just not super acceptable for me these days so I went back to Aritzia (top in bag) and let my girls know that I needed a pair of very high waisted denim that would make this top work appropriate. These became my first pair of Citizens and it. was. pricey. Because of that, I now make sure to wear these at least once a week and I’m going to take care of these for basically the rest of my life.
