1. Outfit Recap
If you're wondering how or why I'm wearing these sweaters in the heat, I normally just wear them indoors for the A/C. Once I'm outside, it comes right off. (After my selfie, of course!)
Express / Cami: Express (Exact color sold out, similar cami here) / Jeans: Express / Sandals: Forever 21 (Similar)/ Necklace: CCO, Gift from Rachelle (Exact Sold Out) / Watch: Fossil / RX Sunglasses: Firmoo (Exact Sold Out) / Bracelet: Purple Peridot
Outfit styling for this next one by Rachelle. She has this cami as well and I asked her how I should style it for a dressy daytime lunch. I had two votes on Instagram for styling this with olive shorts next, so I'm sure you'll see that soon!
Express / Shorts: Express / Sandals: Macy's (Similar) / Necklace: Express / Bracelet: Banana Republic / Bag: Amazon
Thanks to Skye for the color pairing inspiration on this outfit. Her outfit here motivated me to try the fuchsia necklace (that word is so hard to spell!) with cobalt.
Express "Tile Blue" / Shorts: Target / Necklace: Purple Peridot / Bag: Amazon
/ Bracelet: Farrah c/o Zinnia West / Shoes: Nordstrom (Similar)
This type of ultra-casual outfit is honestly my least favorite type to post. I'd rather be a little more dressed up than this on any given day. But at the same time, it feels false to never share this stuff because I do need to dress this casually sometimes!
Target / Necklace: "Turquoise Pendant Necklace" c/o Zinnia West / Shorts: Old Navy (Similar) / Watch: Fossil / Shoes: Nordstrom
2. 40% Off All Jeans
It's the hottest month of the year here and all I really want to wear are bathing suits, so naturally Express has all of their denim on a major 40% off sale. Why do retailers do this to us? Oh well. It is what it is, and it's tempting me to try on the Dark Mid Rise Slim Flares before my size sells out. A lot of my personal favorites are in-stock and on sale, so here's a round-up of my tried-and-true current favorites:
Most of the other pieces in the outfits are no longer in stock, so I'll just do a quick breakdown of which exact items (including color) are still in stock:
ONE: Blazer: Express / Jeans: Express
TWO: Shirt: Express / Jeans: Express
THREE: Cami: Express/ Jeans: Express
FOUR: Tee: Target / Necklace: Express / Jeans: Express
Currently Available Pieces in these outfits:
TWO: Jeans: Express
I was SO excited to get an Instagram Direct Message from Express this week letting me know that I won a contest and now I get to choose a free shirt from their One Eleven Collection! WOO HOO!!! I received an email about the contest the week prior and all I had to do to enter was add a San Diego-specific hashtag to one of my #OOTD pictures wearing Express Jeans. Easy enough, so I figured it didn't hurt to try. Well, after finding out that I won I did a hashtag search to see how I got so lucky against my competition. Well. Guess how many other San Diegans entered? ZERO. Okay, so I can't be as proud of my "winning outfit" as I was for ten whole seconds, but I'll take the free shirt all the same, thank you very much!
For reference this was my winning* outfit:
Express / Necklace: Express (Similar) / Shoes: DV Safia on clearance at Lord & Taylor / Bracelets: Express (Similar) / Bag: Express (Similar) /
I get to claim my prize Thursday night so by the time you read this my Snapchat followers (hint, hint...username ontheDailyX) will probably all know what I chose. But if you missed it I'm sure you'll see it in an upcoming #OOTD on Instagram soon or in a blog post coming next Tuesday or Friday. Have a great weekend!
