Rise and shine friends! I’m up early (before everyone for a change!) to get some things accomplished while the house is quiet. This is actually nice and so peaceful to drink my coffee in silence before the day gets buzzing. I mentioned Monday that I’ve gotten serious about getting back in shape and I’m on Day 5 of a 40-Day Challenge/Mini Cut (more on Snapchat @honeywerehome) and so far so good! I read all of your comments about how you are interested in my meal plan and workouts, etc. so I’m glad that we can be on this fitness journey together.
I’ll be sharing more details here on Monday, but in the meantime, I have a giant Wardrobe Wednesday post for ya featuring 5 ways to style that Fall staple in your wardrobe – your plaid button down shirt
. This post part of a collaboration with Nordstrom, my favorite place to shop online. Okay, who am I kidding, my favorite place to shop in general! They just make online shopping such a breeze and do you know of a store with better customer service? Always so friendly and helpful.
I showed you this shirt
in my last Weekend Casual post
and love the frayed-hem and higher cut sides for a more flattering look, but also the color and soft cotton. It runs true to size, I’m in XS
. I found a similar plaid top
here if you like this look, but want to spend less.
This first look is a dressed-up way to wear your plaid shirt, with a feminine midi skirt, heels and a statement necklace. Tucking the top in lets the skirt be the star and creates the illusion of a smaller waist. You’ll get tons of compliments on this look at your office or on a fun night out. My skirt is old from Nordstrom, Halogen 0P, so I linked some similar below.
These heels are a classic black pump, and actually pretty comfortable as far as high heels go. They also come in nude and are 30% off now.

I finally found a perfectly big, but not too big, bag
that zips so I can shelter the world from all the stuff I’m carrying around lately in my bag. I like that I can wear this one on my shoulder or at the arm with the shorter handles. It carries like a tote, but is more polished. Isn’t the zipper detail cute?! It’s under $50 too!
Since it’s still Spring and light and bright outside, our white jeans
are getting lots of wear and look nice and crisp with the blue and white plaid in this top. I swapped out the black pendant necklace for my trusty $18 white pendant necklace and on your feet, wedges go great with this look. I’m crazy for these low, studded wedges
and they come in black, navy and rust also that I’m lusting after. I usually go for high wedges or heels, but these are super cute and comfy.

Y’all saw this weekend casual look on Friday, but I wanted to include it here so all the looks were in one place. Jeans shorts, a slouchy top, booties and top knot for the win when you want to look effortlessly stylish.
