Friday Favorites + Major Portofino Sale

Today I'm changing things up just a bit from my usual Friday post. Instead of sharing my most recent outfits from Instagram, I'm sharing a few favorite Portofino Shirt outfits for Fall because all solid colors are currently on sale for $19.90! This is even lower than their typical Black Friday pricing (normally that's 50% off, making solid colors $24.90), so I thought it deserved some blog space today.

1. Current Exact Color Favorites
There are just a few color options that Express keeps in stock year round (e.g. Black, White, Ivory), and the rest of the colors change with the season. Black and White are my most used, all-time favorites for any season, and the current "Berry" color has been my seasonal favorite this Fall.

2. Similar Color Favorites

These next two colors I own and love are from past seasons, but there are a couple of current similar color options that could be styled the same way.

Here's a look at the current pink and green versions, along with the three other Original Fit options that are included in the $19.90 Sale.

3. Slim Fit Portofino Options
I have resisted trying the newer Slim Fit Portofino because of the whole, "if it ain't broke..." theory. But I noticed that the Slim Fit version now has twice as many color options! There are sixteen solid color options in Slim Fit vs. eight in the Original Fit. There are a lot of really nice neutrals (my fave) that only come in Slim Fit, so I finally decided to order one of them during this sale to compare fit, etc. once and for all.
Both Colors HERE

I ordered the color "Thornberry" on the left, but the Pale Grey on the right was a close runner up. It may end up being a Black Friday purchase if I really like the fit of "Thornberry."

Favorite New Jewelry:
My friends have continued to shower me with kindness since my dad passed away, and I just love the beautiful Stella & Dot pieces Noelle picked out for me. I'm wearing them in the first outfit of this post but didn't get a very good close-up of this gorgeous ring:

I love that it's adjustable so I can wear it on different fingers, not to mention during different seasons when my fingers swell or shrink depending on the weather! Noelle always does an amazing job of knowing my tastes and selecting pieces for me, and she's also a Stella & Dot rep so if you want any pieces from that line make sure to get in touch with her!
