Fashion Friday

Happy Friday everyone!  So glad the weekend is here.  I don’t know about all of you but I feel like I still haven’t recovered from Christmas break!  I’m trying to get back in the swing of things around here but I feel like I’m moving slower than usual.  Anyone else?  At least I was able to get a few spots organized so the week wasn’t a total bust!  Pictures coming soon. :)
Sharing a few fun things I’ve been wearing lately!  It has been cold here (just low 60’s but really cloudy) and every day I want to reach for this grey and navy turtleneck tunic from Banana Republic.  I bought it in December and I’m seriously embarrassed about how much I’ve worn it since then!  It’s cute and comfortable and just perfect for cloudy, casual days.  They also have the same sweater in black and grey and I’m thinking of buying it too just so I look like I’m trying to not wear the same thing every day. Ha!  {Jeans in every picture in this post are my tried and true AG favorites.}  Shoes are my favorite Toms booties.  I’ve had them for over a year and LOVE them.  Like the sweater they are casual and comfortable.  And on sale right now!  Everything at Banana just went 40% off for the weekend too – YEA!  (Just enter their code.)  This sweater and this one are in my cart and need to come home. :)

Wore my sweater last weekend on a date night with my cute husband!  Hoping we can sneak away for a couple hours again this weekend.  It’s always so nice to have an uninterrupted grown up conversation for longer than 5 minutes.  It’s the little things.  :)

{My purse sold out in the brown but they still have it here in a really pretty green!}
Btw.. before we carry on with all things fashion, do you love the paint swatch behind me?  I told you my master bedroom was covered in paint options.. ha!  I definitely want to go lighter than what I originally chose (the original color clashes with my headboard and has too much of a purple undertone) but wondering if my new color is too light?  K.. sidetracked.  That’s a post for another day!  In this pic I’m wearing another Banana sweater I love.  It’s their micro-rib sweater and it’s really thick so it’s nice and warm! nordstrom-scarf
It’s the perfect sweater to wear under scarves.  I got this scarf from Nordstroms but couldn’t find it on their site.  While I was looking I got a bit sidetracked because they have so many cute scarves right now!  I love scarves and we only get to wear them for a couple of months here so I’m living it up.  I have one on at least three days a week. :)
Same Banana sweater a different day with this plaid cashmere scarf from Sole Society.  These fun booties I’ve had for a while are also from Sole Society.  (These are almost identical.)  Sole Society recently got more fun new booties in and I’m debating buying this pair too.  So cute, right!?  They are less than $45 right now!


This sweater is from Target baby!  Love it.  So comfy and perfect to wear with leggings. I couldn’t find it on-line but it’s almost identical to this one.  Leggings are the best in the winter, aren’t they!?  They make me feel like I’m in my pajamas all day which is always a good thing!  These leggings are from Ann Taylor.  I have a few pairs from Ann Taylor and really like the fit.


K.. this next outfit I really love.  It’s from Banana (did you know I love that store?) ;) and it can be super dressy or dressy/casual depending on what you pair with the blouse.  This is their tie-front blouse with their plaid cutout-back tank over it.  In this picture I paired it with my favorite jeans and grey boots, but I’ve also dressed it up even more with a black skirt and heels.  (Shoes are a few years old and the only similar boots I can find are these black Jessica Simpson booties.)banana-republic-jacket

I wanted to show you a close up of this cute tank and how the black tie from the blouse looks over it.  Hard to see, but it’s so cute!  It has been perfect for events that I want to dress up a bit for.  Dressy/casual clothes are hard for me to find so this blouse and tank have been on repeat!

kate-spade-watch-boxLast latest fashion obsession!  This was a Christmas gift from my husband.  I think I squealed when I saw this pretty Kate Spade box!  Might have begged him politely hinted that I wanted this.  :)kate-spade-gold-and-silver-watch

It’s Kate Spade’s  “Gramercy Grand” Bracelet Watch.  I haven’t worn a watch in years and have been wanting one that was gold and silver so it didn’t matter what other jewelry I was wearing.  It’s so fun to wear both!  The second I saw this I knew it was the one. :)  I have a few cute bracelets I’m excited to wear with it.


I’d love to model it on my wrist for you all, but I haven’t worn it yet because it’s too big!  I need to have some links taken out and just haven’t had time to do it yet.  This weekend for sure because I’m taking Ellie shopping for her birthday.  She turns 12 on Tuesday!  Pass the kleenex!!  I can’t believe it.  Time flies.

No pun intended.


Enjoy your weekend everyone!

xoxo, Erin

  1. Love the jeans as usual.They look great on you. That blouse is so pretty; very feminine. Your clothing style looks great but I’d like to see you with more upscale handbags. I hope that doesn’t sound snarky because it’s not meant to be, and I’m not sure how to say this more eloquently , but you dress beautifully and the handbags kind of bring it down. You always want to wear more expensive accessories to bring an outfit up and everything looks great except the cheaper handbags. Nordstrom has an awesome collection of handbags. You don’t have to spend a couple grand but I’m thinking a $300 to $400 handbag would look good especially if your jeans are $200. I always think that good shoes and handbags are important:)

    1. Thanks Sue! I totally appreciate your honest feedback! I love expensive bags too and have a couple, but I get tired of my purses quickly so sometimes I like to buy less expensive ones just to mix it up. :) After I looked at that picture of me and my husband with my purse my first thought was that I needed a grey bag with that outfit! Looks like I’ll have to go shopping. ;) Enjoy your weekend! xo

    2. I can appreciate the above sentiment. However, for those of us without the budget for expensive accessories, all the time, the cheaper (but still very cute) accessories are lovely to see, as well! I have some very expensive jeans (I’m quite tall–the “tall” options in most stores are still too short) so investing in expensive jeans is somewhat necessary, but that leaves less budget for accessories :)

      1. Thank you Wilma! I agree! It’s all about making choices and a lot of times I think you can find less expensive accessories that look like they cost more than they actually do. Nice jeans that fit the right way are definitely where I put my money first also. :) Happy weekend cutie! xo

  2. You have got a great fashion sense, Erin. You look fantastic in everything you put on. :) I love the idea of scarves, unfortunately my neck is too short. So I admire them on others. :) That picture of you and your husband is wonderful, definitely frameworthy in my humble opinion. I hope you and your daughter have fun shopping together. They grow up way too fast! Have a great weekend and thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks cutie! You are always so kind. I bet you could pull off a skinny scarf! :) Wish we could go shopping together! Enjoy your weekend Jeanne! xo

  3. TWELVE??? You almost have a teenager Erin!!! Hope you are doing well in your cold :) weather. Loved everything but especially the BR sweater with leggings-looks so comfy.

    1. Ha ha.. I know! Not too cold.. but cold to me! :) Can you believe she’ll be 12 Sarah!? Oh my word. I really can’t. I’m going to have to go back and re-read some of your “parenting to teens” posts! You know you are going to coach me through this all, right? E-mailing soon! xo

  4. Oh, you look darling, Erin. I guess that’s because you are darling inside and out. :) I love the color block sweater. I just bought it! Thanks for sharing your cute finds.

    1. YOU are darling Nancy! Thank you so much! You’ll love that sweater! I’m so happy you liked it.:) Now I can totally picture it on you! So cute! Love that. Enjoy your weekend sweet friend! xo

  5. Hello, I am brand new to your blog. I just found out about it a couple of days ago from A Bowl of Lemons. I just about fell out of my chair when I saw how inexpensive your bag was! I had to buy it right away. Plus, I believe I pinned just about every picture of your laundry room. Ha! Thanks for the post!

    1. YEA! So happy you like that bag! Isn’t it cute!? I couldn’t believe how inexpensive it was either! Thanks so much Courtney! I’m so glad you found my blog. Nice to “meet” you! xo

  6. I scored a few sweaters on clearance and extra 40% off this past week from Banana Republic. I received the solid gold version of the watch for Christmas as I needed a gold one! LOL And, Ellie shares my hubby’s birthday.

  7. I’m loving our sweater weather too! And I am running WAY behind on life- just realized we’re halfway through January and I haven’t made my New Year’s resolutions yet! haha :)

    1. Oh my word Evaly.. doesn’t it go by fast!? I’m with you. I just need to get on top of things around here. Nothing wrong with a big old list of February goals, right? ;) xo

  8. I love your Fashion Friday’s! I put on my favorite pj’s, grab my favorite blanket & a bowl of gourmet popcorn and start reading :)
    I love all the outfits! It reminded me I have the plaid scarf and need to wear it. I have to say I love the watch and even the box it came in too! The two tone is the best. Nice!
    Happy Birthday to your daughter & many more :)

    1. Thanks so much Debi! Oh my word. I’m laughing reading your comment because I’m sitting on my couch in my favorite pj’s with my favorite blanket and popcorn RIGHT NOW! Ha ha.. We need to hang out. ;) xo

  9. I would love if you did a post on how you take care of all your cute clothes! From storing to washing and drying, I must have issues. There is nothing more frustrating than shrinking shirts on the first wash even when it’s cold water, hung dry, and not even cotton!!


    1. Hi Katherine! I’d love to do a post on that for you, but I honestly don’t do anything special! I wash most of my tops in cold on a delicate cycle and then hang them dry, but I’ve had that same problem before too! I think it just depends on the clothes. Laundry! One of those things we could do without. ;) xo

  10. You look so cute in everything (I really like the last outfit, and the blue stripe sweater!) and it is so nice to see you smiling on all of the photos :).

  11. Hi Erin! Love you and love your blog….I love it even more when people from California refer to the 60’s as cold!! I’m outside of Chicago and our temperature today is 4 with a wind chill of -20. Brrr….now that’s cold! Have a good one and hope it warms up for you soon! Lol :)

    1. Ha ha.. I know Laurie! We are total wimps around here. :) I can’t even imagine 4 degrees!! Brrr is right! I’m feeling cold just thinking about that! Stay warm! And when you’ve had enough, come and visit me. :) Thanks cutie! xo

  12. That watch!! I got the same one last year for Christmas and even over a year later, I’m still in love with it! It dresses up and down so well and the two tone means it goes with everything. One caution – the bracelet does scratch easily, so be careful with wearing it while typing, resting your wrist on the table, etc. just to keep it looking nice long-term. It’s such a timeless, classy piece! Happy that your husband took your hint ;)

    1. Thank you so much for the tip Sarah! I’ll definitely be careful with it! I haven’t even taken the clear cover off the face of it yet.. ha! So glad you still love it! :)

  13. Hi Erin,

    I love your blog !!

    I was wondering where you purchased your girl’s bathroom light (it is a trio with surrounded by stainless)

    Thank You,

    LeeAnn Arhelger

    1. Hi LeeAnn! Thank you! Shoot.. I’m blanking on where I got those lights! Try typing “girls new bathroom” into the search bar of my blog and see if it’s in that post. I’ll see if I can dig it up too! xo
