Insta Lately

Scarf: Forever 21 (old, but I have seen some great options in store recently like this one). 
Sweater: Old Navy. Jeans: 7 For All Mankind. Boots: Sam Edelman. Sunglasses: Perverse.

Happy Friday, friends! Today's post is a recap of some of the outfits (and a candle, ha) I've featured on Instagram in more detail.

I would have never tried these floral print jeans on if I hadn't seen someone wearing something similar at an event. I was able to get mine discounted at Lord & Taylor using my black card (limited sale exclusions). The only problem is you can't wear them two days in a row around the same people. You can definitely dress them up or down. This is a casual look with a sweater from Old Navy that is my favorite right now. I also love this cozy grey ripped sweater

I needed a pair of boots for the weekends that didn't have a high heel for chasing Lexi around. I also just feel weird wearing a heel and pushing a stroller... so I welcomed another pair of brown booties to my closet. They have zippers on each side and like how jeans tuck into them but there is a still a little room.

Jacket: Burberry (similar). Blouse: Forever 21. Jeans: AG. Boots: Stuart Weitzman (similar).

Surprisingly I did not stretch this photo (I never do but probably should)... it's the boots! I am 5'2" and never thought I would be able to pull off thigh-high boots but they work. This exact style can be found here and Nordstrom now has a similar pair with a covered heel. I like that these had just enough of a heel to give me some lift and I feel comfortable wearing them to work.  I also have black with a higher heel and save those for the rare occasions I go out at night. 

I've had this Burberry jacket for years and years. I can truly say the jacket and boots are worth the investment. These are the types of pieces you should look out for during big sales in the off season.

Jacket: Gap. Leggings: Old Navy. Boots: Hunter.

I wanted these boots for Lexi pre-birth... but patiently waited until now to splurge. She is between a 5/6 right now so went with the larger size and will be ordering some thick wool socks per a friend's suggestion to wear with them. I wanted the yellow (in case one day down the road we have a boy) but am not so mad they were sold out and got pink instead. Her lamb and doll were featured in my last post about her favorite toys.

The jacket is an older style from Gap and I was lucky to find it on Poshmark (in two sizes so she's been wearing this style for a year).  I occasionally list items but this is the only thing I have ever bought.

Sweater: Red Wagon. Jacket: Patagonia. Jeans: Gap. Sneakers: Converse. Blanket: Pottery Barn.

Several people asked me via Stories where Lexi's golf sweater was from.... The Reg Wagon in Boston on Charles Street (my favorite little street for shopping!). They offer some styles online like the Lobster, which was a gift from her Godmother that got us hooked. You can always call the store and ask if they have it in stock to ship to you. She also got us that faux fur blanket from Pottery Barn.... now there are 3 of us fighting over it in the house.

I can't wait to get our Christmas tree! In the meantime... I've been burning this Fresh Balsam 3-wick candle from Bath & Body Works. They are regularly $24 but often on sale for $12. Once a year they go on sale for $8... which I learned is December 2nd (I hope I got that right?) so mark your calendar if you want to wait in line at the mall forever to buy some candles. To be honest, I hadn't been in the store in ages but my friend that is in the fragrance industry tipped me off to this one last holiday season. Unfortunately Vanilla Balsam isn't on the shelves this year... which would have been my first choice.

If you want to splurge, Birchwood Pine from Nest is the way to go (another tip from my friend)! It is my favorite holiday candle. I use the glass as a pen holder on my desk now.

Have a great weekend!
