Outfits Lately

Happy weekend friends!  I’m finishing up this post in the Big Apple and even though I lost it leaving Jordan, now I’m so glad I came and excited because we still have one full day to explore the city!   Today we’re doing our food tour and seeing Waitress and then a super late dinner.  I’ll definitely let you know how everything was in case you’re ever in NYC and want to try either.  I’ve been trying to Snap or InstaStory (@honeywerehome) while I’m here so you can share in what we’re doing.  It feels like being a universe away from home, but in an energizing way with the buzz of the city.  I can’t wait to snuggle my kiddos when I get home though!

For today, I hope you have a hot cup of coffee or tea nearby so you can settle in for this jam packed Outfits Lately post.  It’s also my visual proof that I haven’t been in jean shorts every day!  Only almost everyday. You may have seen some of these outfits on my blog over the previous month or two or on Instagram, but here I’ve combined them into one big mama jama post so you have early Fall outfit inspiration all in one place.  

Date nights are few and far between around here lately, but I realize we need to make time for them. Some dates are more casual than others and this lilac sleeveless sweater/white jeans with silvery-grey accessories was a pretty combo.  I like this sweater so much that I’ll just wear a long sleeve top or button down underneath when it gets cooler.

Yep, already sporting jean shorts.  But wearing them up with this layered beaded necklace and booties dresses them up a bit.  The necklace is darling in person and comes in several colors.

I’m still so crazy for off shoulder and cold shoulder tops.  This one is super easy to wear with the looser fit in the body- it also comes in lots of colors/patterns.

I’ve gotten so much milage out of the tank top pictured below- I’ve had them for years and in three colors.  Just size up because they run small.

A lot of you were asking for more work appropriate outfits and you can’t go wrong with a tunic and pencil skirt.  Instant chic.

This outfit was an almost date-night and then we realized we were too tired to go out.  Oh well, I actually wore that top on the plane to New York and out to dinner.  More on that trip soon!

If you want a change from your skinny jeans, try a bootcut.  As long as they hit the ground (not too long and not too short) and you wear a heel, they’ll make your legs look super long!

This outfit below was good luck because I wore it to get my hair colored (the second time).  It’s really growing on me!  Of course I take my RTIC or YETI cup everywhere- they keep my water cold!
Was smitten with this set of bracelets. It comes with all five and they go with lots of outfits.

How cute is this striped strappy dress?!  The material is soft and it’s so easy to throw on with flats or dress up with a heel and you can wear a regular bra with it. It comes in several colors/patterns and runs a little on the big side.  I wore XS and it fit perfectly.

More shoulders please!  I love this top and also brought it to NYC with me, but I’ll definitely need a jacket like below since it’s chilly.  

This dress is so adorable on, but it tricked me with how to wear it.  I think it’s meant for the sleeves to go over your arm like a cold shoulder, but I put it on like this and actually liked this way better.

I was so excited to find these comy camo pants and for under $20!  They make a great neutral pant for your Fall sweaters when it gets a little cooler. 

This short sleeve cardi is probably one of my favorite recent finds, but unfortunately it sold out so I had to link one similar! #sorry! I’ve been wearing it all the time, out of the house, but also inside! It’s great for us in the still-warmer climates. 

I have a feeling this fringe-hem plaid top is gonna be in heavy rotation soon.  The cut is super flattering, dipping in at the waist and going up on the sides to accentuate your shape and not make you look boxy.

Military vest for now, military jacket later!

Oh black skinny jeans, where have you been all my life?!  I love you!  These run TTS, fit great in all the right places, are comfortable, and make you look like a skinny mini! I guess black is slimming!  They were my most recent Must Have for Fall.

Here’s another work look for ya.  I always kept a blazer on my office door for when I needed to look extra polished.  And again with these black skinnies!!

I really can’t wait for more Fall weather so we can wear more outfits like this.  Deep, saturated hues are calling my name!

I’ve got this short sleeve plaid top in two colors and it’s almost 50% off now.

If you’re looking for a bootie with a heel, this wedge pair are seriously so comfortable.  They’ve got cushions and padding inside that make your feet feel great.  I’m partial to this grey because I have so many grey tops, but they comes in other colors too. 
Ah, I wish this dress would’ve fit me.  I’m actually swimming in it and it’s size XS.

We took Jordan to her first trip to Chipotle in this outfit.  She loved the black beans!

You thought we were almost done?  There’s more!

Y’all loved this midi skirt & floral bomber jacket combo.  The skirt is feminine and pretty but the jacket gives it an edgy vibe.

This is a favorite “out with baby” outfit because the jeans, tee and shoes are all so comfy.  

If you like cozy soft hoodies, definitely check out this one.

This outfit was more of a “what I want to wear” and actually would have worked in NYC!  I should’ve brought it! The OTK boots kill me in the best way!

Here’s the red/blue version of the short sleeve plaid top I showed you above.

How cool is this striped off-the-shoulder top?!  I love the colors and how it looks on.

Couldn’t leave you without a snap of my soft pants I’m so crazy about! I hope you’re not sick of me talking about them yet.  They are so good and I’m actually wearing them right now as I type this!

And finally, what have I really been wearing most of lately?!  My game-day tee shirt!  James plays soccer and Fall baseball right now, so Jordan and I have been coming along and cheering on our favorite player.  Look familiar, #gameMoms?!  Two different times Jordan and I ducked out a little early (once because the game was going way past her bedtime and she was melting down and the other time we just left the field because it started pouring).  Both times we left early, James ended up scoring a run and getting a goal!  #GoJames!
