Five on Friday: 5 Recent Outfits (+ A Bonus)

Friday, October 26, 2018

TGIF! I'm not too sorry to bid farewell to this week, since 3 out of 4 of us came down with a yucky cold. The weather was beautiful but chilly -- I would've loved to get outside to enjoy it more, but hopefully next week we'll be up and running! What are you up to this weekend? We had some ideas for plans but we're just going to take it easy and see how the girls are doing. It looks like it will be pretty rainy here, anyway! I am never sad about a relaxing weekend. :)

I thought I'd shake it up again format-wise for today's Five on Friday! Today I'm actually sharing six recent outfits (let's call it five and a bonus!) I've worn in these transitional fall weeks. It can be hard to find the right thing to put on when the weather and temps are all over the place, can't it? So I've been trying to get use out of those in-between pieces -- long sleeves, vests, jeans and leggings. Easy peasy! PS - Everything is linked (or something similar is) in case something catches your eye.

1. Vest + chambray top + leggings

 You can't go wrong with this combo. It's comfortable and looks put together without trying basically at all. ;) The light chambray shirt is old Target (similar here), the leggings are BP, the sneakers are from Target last year but here's a similar pair, and the vest is from Target this year. I clearly love me some Bullseye!

2. Tank + long cardigan + leggings

Tell me I'm not the only one who occasionally eats cereal from a giant mug for lunch or dinner? This is another no-brainer featuring super-comfy leggings, a striped tank from (you guessed it!) Target, and an ultra soft long cardigan (comes down to almost my knees -- I'm 5'2 + 3/4" ;)) from Nordstrom. Same three brands as the first photo! I know what I like.

3. Sweater + (stretch-waist!) jeans


I got a couple of new things for this fall/winter season, and I think this sweater is my favorite. Yep, it's from Target, and it's so cute and warm. The back has a cable detail going down the back and I think it looks a lot like some other more expensive options. And these jeans... I shared these recently, but they have a stretchy band inside the waistband (look for them at your local TJ Maxx/Marshalls).

4. Tie sweatshirt + jeans + leopard flats

This top was $20 on crazy sale at J.Crew Factory and I think it could take you from office meeting to lunch with friends to running around with the kids (I wore this to the birthday party we went to at Chuck E. Cheese, ha!). These Lucky brand jeans are my favorite and another steal from TJ Maxx, and my leopard flats are super old from Target but I know this looks is everywhere (like these and these, both under $40). Also, I'm dying because of that pull-up box in the background that we need to recycle, haha! These pictures were taken a day apart. It's recycled now, I promise! 

5. Button down plaid + jeans

Same Lucky jeans as the photo above, but this time paired with a casual plaid button down. I like that this plaid is large and the colors are a little different - burgundy, cream, and camel. Dare I say it almost reminds me of a Burberry print because of the large plaid, but it's a couple of years old from Forever 21. Yep, that's right! Here's a similar top from this season.

6. Bonus! Colored denim + chambray popover 

If you have a favorite pair of colored denim, don't think you have to put them away once the cooler months hit. And I don't think they need to be dark, either. There's a place for light denim in the fall/winter... even white. Above I threw on my favorite pair of seafoam-colored stretchy jeans with a basic chambray popover. If you need another layer for warmth, I think a faux fur vest like this one (under $40) would look really cute over this!

There you have it! Six easy outfit combos to easily throw on (and mix and match) during these transitional months. What is your go-to, easy outfit?

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! PS - STAY TUNED! October's Women Who Inspire profile is coming early next week. I can't wait to introduce you. :)


  1. I love all of your outfits and you are never alone with cereal for dinner.

    1. Thanks so much, Jess! And that's a relief - I knew I couldn't be the only one. ;)

  2. I'm sorry you all weren't feeling well. This time of year can be so rough. Our plans are also going to be playing it by ear because the weather isn't looking too great tomorrow. I am loving all of these outfits! I keep saying I need to get a utility vest. Haha I love cereal at any time of day but usually reach for a bowl. I hope everyone feels better and you can enjoy the weekend! Sierra Beautifully Candid

    1. Thanks, Sierra! I think we're on our way to health so that's good. This time of year is definitely rough! You should definitely check out a utility vest. I think they're great while pregnant (and postpartum!) too. Hope you have a fun weekend despite the weather! xo

  3. Do we have the same style or what? Sometimes I get overwhelmed with how many things I own that can be worn with an army green vest haha. Also, you're not the only one who eats cereal out of a large mug for lunch or dinner. ;)

    1. Hahaha, I love it! Seriously - it goes with everything! Best purchase ever. And I'm glad to hear I'm not alone... I didn't think I could be. ;) Happy Sunday, lady!

  4. Lovely! All elegant with a bit of comfy thrown in - I love especially the grey tie-waisted top. I could do with more items like that in my wardrobe - instead of as many dog walking / outdoorsy clothes! I am hoping J Crew expands out of London soon. The top looks great paired with those ballet flats. J xx

    1. Thank you so much, I appreciate that! :) I definitely think comfy is key for me, especially these days. But I also like to feel somewhat put together, if that makes sense. Oh, I hope J. Crew expands soon too -- so classic! I could see you wearing so many of their pieces. XO
