Currently Loving

Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week! Last night, I had the awesome opportunity to attend a local event at the North Carolina Zoo with my best friend and boss. There was great food and networking opportunities but the best thing was the elephants! I have visited our local zoo over a hundred times and I have never once seem the elephants be so playful. They were playing in the water and living their best life! We also were able to watch an elephant training session. Elephants are such sweet animals and I loved being able to see them closer up!

Today, I'm sharing my weekly roundup of what I'm currently loving. Occasionally, I do share some items that I may have shared in a previous post but that just means that I am still loving it! Also, I feel like my style has really evolved over the past year. I guess it took me to age 32 to really find my true personal style or maybe it's just ever changing. But, I am only buying items that I truly love and/or are closet staples. I'm choosing items that work well together which makes getting dressed each day a lot easier... and we could also use a little more easy in our lives, right?!

Which of this week's picks is your favorite?!

1. J E A N S | I am all about a high rise pair of denim. No matter how many crunches I do at the gym, I still have a mom tummy. I like jeans that suck me in and hold it all in place, lol. I ordered this pair this week and I'm excited to try them. I'll report back on what I think!

2. M U L E S | I got the leopard version of these mules a few weeks ago and I absolutely love them. I bought the Gema mules last fall (super similar to this pair) and I wore them non-stop! I recommend sizing up a half size for the best fit in Madewell mules.

3.  W O R K O U T  T A N K | Nike workout tanks are the only ones I ever wear! They wash up so well and they are super comfortable to workout in. I always size up to a medium for a relaxed fit.

4. T O P | I am loving the button detail and tie front on this top! This is great for short now and would also work great with skinny jeans in the fall. A great basic!

5. J A C K E T | So, I think this is the only color of denim jacket that I missing. I didn't realize that I needed a black denim jacket until I saw this one! I think I would get so much use out of it. So perfect for throwing over a dress for fall!

6. M O CK  N E C K  T A N K | I shared this cute tank in Monday's Target Finds post and it was the one item that I took home with me that day. It's a great basic that is elevated by the mock neck detail. I'm planning to wear this with overalls this weekend! The fit is true to size.

7. L I P S T I C K | This is one of those items that I have shared over and over and I'm sharing it again! This lipstick is my absolute favorite and I can't get enough of the shade "backtalk." It's the prettiest mauve! I also included this lipstick in my most recent Hair and Beauty Bag post,

8. D R E S S | Last but not least (because it's my favorite out of all of these picks) is this gorgeous lace swing dress! I kind of think it's the dress of my dreams! I always love swing dresses (because they are super flattering and comfortable) plus it's super feminine and made of lace! I'm planning to wear this straight into fall by throwing on a utility jacket or cardigan with ankle boots. Oh and what's even better is that it's around $20! Such a steal!

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you have a great weekend!
