Outfit Recap 8/25/17

It's been an exciting, hectic week around here! My oldest had a birthday so we had all the requisite celebrations, followed by back to school time! After years of having two kids in the same school, I now have one in middle school and one in elementary school, so our schedule just got a little more complicated. I'm sure we'll adapt just like other families always do, but my brain is feeling a little extra scattered for now. It was relatively cool and cloudy here this week, hence the reason for a few more jackets, sleeves, and pants than I've been wearing this summer.

Outfit Recap:

Khaki Moto Jacket, Jeans:
Jacket: Express | Jeans: Express (Similar) | Tee: Nordstrom | Shoes: Lucky Brand | Necklace: Stella & Dot | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Watch: Fossil (Similar) | Bracelets: c/o Charming Charlie

This jacket is a recent purchase and as of the time I'm writing this, it's currently part of a 30% off sale for newer items. It runs true to size and is the perfect neutral color and light weight for a summer-to-fall transition item. I have a couple of cardigans in this shade and they really are my most-used because they go with just about everything! Yet I haven't had an easy time finding jackets I like in the same color family, so I'm really happy this one worked out I am pretty sure I'll do a Three Ways to Wear post with this jacket

Plaid Shirt, Jean Shorts:
Shirt: Abercrombie | Shorts: Target (Similar) | Shoes: Amazon | Necklace: c/o Charming Charlie | Bag: Sole Society 

This plaid shirt  is also a nice transition piece since it's a very lightweight, breathable material. It runs true to size and comes in eight colors altogether. I was torn between this one and the burgundy plaid, but don't be surprised if I end up getting that one eventually too. It's very similar to a plaid that Express had once and I regretted missing out on, so I don't want to make the same mistake twice!

Grey Lace-Up Peplum Tank:
Top: Tank | Jeans: Express | Shoes: c/o Amazon | Bracelets: Charmed Stacks (Get 10% off with code: onthedailyx) | Ring: Kendra Scott "Odette"

My tank and jeans both run true to size. I don't have much more to say about either of them, but after not finding too many pieces I loved at Express over the summer, as you can see from this post, the tides are turning again with some of their new Fall pieces. I have several other things on my wishlist there and am hoping their Labor Day sale will be a good one so I can snag a few more pieces on sale!

That's it for today! I'm looking forward to a fairly low-key weekend and hope yours is a good one as well!
