This dress was destined for my closet given that it’s basically an updated version of the one I bought last year and have worn just about every week since. I’m such a sucker for a loose dress with flats, so much so that I’d call it my signature style. To keep my favorite look from getting stale, I look for pieces each season that have on-trend detailing. This year’s iteration of my beloved dress has a sweet bow tied at the neck, dainty ruffled hems, and gathering to add texture. If you’re as captivated with it as I am, definitely go down a size. I usually start with a medium in a new item, but I had to go with a small in this and there’s still plenty of extra room.
I have spent hours scouring the Internet for the perfect rug for our living room and this is the best one I’ve found yet. I’m still not completely sold, since I would prefer a rug with navy in it, but it’s getting close to what I had in mind. Plus, it’s a great price point for a rug of that size. And while we’re on the topic of great home deals, have you seen Target’s Project 62 collection? It’s definitely a West Elm-meets-Target take for home decor with some gorgeous affordable pieces. I’m loving this lamp and this rug is really tempting, too. If you’d prefer to splurge on actual West Elm goods (considering the quality is better than Target typically is), you can take 20% off your purchase right now with code FFSALE. We recently purchased this lamp and it’s the cutest thing to put atop our bar cabinet that should arrive this week or next!

I’m pretty sure this top was part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in July, but it wasn’t until it landed in the regular sale section that it caught my eye. I have been spending so much time looking for affordable loose blouses that I can wear with jeans this fall, and happily this one fit the bill. I love the little details from the bell sleeves to the ruffles to the seaming at the waist — all of which make the blouse feel more special than its inexpensive price tag.
This time of year is my style sweet spot. There are few things I love more than being able to wear a lightweight sweater with a mini skirt or a pair of shorts, and this sweater that Garnet Hill sent over is just perfect for the transitional weather. It’s a breathable linen-cotton blend that offers just enough warmth for breezy days without being too warm when the weather heats up in the afternoon. Labor Day in Madison was on the chilly side, which made this the perfect ensemble for running errands and meandering around our new neighborhood. (I picked up this amazing brass ram on our outing. Anthro has a similar one.) The sweater runs a big large, so size down if you want a more fitted look.
