Instagram Recap + Weekend Sales

Happy Saturday! I haven’t done an Instagram recap in a looong time, so I figured why not today? Plus there are some cute things I’ve been wanting to blog about! 
First up, I am already loving vests this year. The other morning was really chilly out, so I threw a vest on top of what I had already been wearing (plus I added a leopard belt because who doesn’t love a little leopard?). Also, I love this striped vest from Shop Juliana’s because it looks like a J.Crew one but is wayy cheaper.

white blouse // distressed black denim (so comfortable!) // leopard loafers similar here & here

On Thursday afternoon I took my computer to a little cafe to work for the afternoon. It was the first time I’d been to Nova’s Bakery in Charlotte and it was amazing! I’m also loving my new leopard tote (which looks totally different on the website, I know) because it’s really spacious inside and it can hold a ton of stuff – my laptop and camera included.

This was taken a few days ago when I was on the way to meet some friends for dinner. That blingy necklace will be on repeat this fall… I’m a little obsessed with it.

Remember the phone case I blogged about here? Well it finally came in! It was one of my purchases from the Tory Burch Labor Day Sale and I love how “fall” it is! 

For whatever reason, there are also some really good sales going on this weekend. (I will definitely be taking advantage of the J.Crew one! I already ordered this online…) Most end either today or tomorrow but you can get quite a big percentage off your purchase. Happy shopping!
