A Brand Collaboration I Can Get Behind

Sincerely Jules by Nordstrom

I always love to hear who other bloggers follow, so I thought I’d share one of my very favorite bloggers to follow. I have followed Sincerely Jules for a couple of years, and I find that I continually relate to her laid back, yet feminine style. Her style feels effortless and approachable, and it is. I knew she was working on her own label, and when I went shopping with a friend of mine at Nordstrom recently, I was super curious to check out Sincerely Jules’ line. I was excited to see the quality, fit and style were spot on! In my mind, these are the key elements of a successful brand, so I wanted to share!

Who doesn’t love a short sleeve sweatshirt?!?! Are you thinking that makes no sense? Well, I think it makes perfect sense as a transitional/tran-seasonal piece because it gives a nod to cold weather but isn’t too warm on the body. Hello fall, I have the perfect shirt for you to meet! As you can see, rolling the sleeves for extra oomph makes me happy! Ha! I also can’t wait to wear it with shorts!

I’ve been wanting a bomber jacket, and when I tried this one on and saw the fit, I was in. I also love the color! This color seems to be everywhere this fall!

Am I the only one who feels like I am constantly carrying a purse and a carry-on? Ha! I found a great splurge vs. steal for these two bags (see below).

It’s official, this watch is my absolute favorite that I’ve ever owned. Shhhhhh, don’t tell my husband. He bought me a really nice one when our son was born. The black strap and white face is so classic. It seems to go with all my outfits, and if it doesn’t, it adds a perfect bit of contrast.

Ok, that’s it. Oh, and it’s good to be back!

What I Wore: Boston

Free People Drape Front Coated Jacket

Boston is officially my favorite city (other than my hometown of Houston). My husband grew up outside of Boston, so I have been fortunate to visit Boston more than a few times. Every time we go, I’m amazed with how much I love the city.

I used to not like it as much because the people weren’t as friendly as the people of the “friendly south.” However, in my old age, I’ve put a different spin on it. I’ve decided that they are just being “real”, and that’s ok with me. As long as you’re real and not mean, I’m ok with that. In fact, at this point, I prefer it.

If you’ve never been to Boston, you should go. It’s a smaller metropolitan city that has some really beautiful neighborhoods filled with picturesque brownstones. For someone who loves to learn, the historic nature of Boston is right up my alley, and the shopping is great, too. The weather is wonderful this time of year, and there are some beautiful parks and outdoor cafes to take full advantage of it. To me, it’s the most similar to a European city that you can get in the US, and there is nothing like a Red Sox game at Fenway. The loyalty of the fans is unique and invigorating. See, I love Boston. Anyway, check it out if you haven’t been. Here’s what I wore.

I’m taking a little break from the blog for the next week. I’m taking a hint from Bostonians, and instead of acting like I’m in the mood to write and think about clothes, I’m taking a break. My husband lost his grandfather and my sister is having surgery. I want to be fully present for both of them and my family during this time. I probably won’t be on Instagram much either.  We will all be fine, because we are in God’s hands. Say a little prayer for us. Lots of love to each and every one of you. I mean it.
