Bright, Black, and Polka Dotted

Hey all! Can you do me a favor? Don’t mention the fall or pumpkin spice, or Halloween, or anything related. I’m not ready. See the picture below?? That is summer Mag, don’t mess with her.


I’m already depressed by the sight of pumpkin spice beverages and candy corn. It’s still summer! I want to squeeze every last minute out of the few remaining weeks that we have left.  I’m not ready to wear sweaters and boots yet. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Fall, but this summer has been such a bummer and we’re finally having some beautiful weather! I really don’t want it to end.

If you’re still in the summer mode like I am, I have a few pieces you might enjoy or feel inspired by.

The first is this bright yellow tee from ASOS!


I love that is says “You are my sunshine” and that it’s the brightest shade of yellow. Could you find a happier piece of clothing? It totally matches my mood lately because I’m loving my life and the people that are in it. For reference, I got a size 4 and it fits perfectly. It’s only $16! You can check it out here.

The next piece is this super soft and comfortable black midi skirt from ASOS.


It’s a great option for work or for weekend brunch. You all know how much I love a midi skirt or dress. They have the vintage feel that I love and they’re totally flattering on most body shapes. I got it in a size 6 and it fits really well. It’s only $26. It’s still available in most sizes.

The next pieces are from Target, of course. If you’ve been to Target lately, you’ll have noticed their new clothing line called Wild Fable. It’s totally got a 90’s vibe and it reminds me of the styles in the movie Clueless.


I love this black cropped polo! I’ve worn it with the midi skirt, a jean skirt, and these great black mom jeans. It’s so soft and obviously very versatile. I got it in an XS because as I’ve noted before, Target’s sizes run huge and this new line is no exception. I should note that is is very cropped, as you can see ;).  It’s only $14 and you can check it out here.


I realize that jeans border on the line of fall clothing, but I feel they can definitely be worn year round. These ripped black mom jeans are my new favorite jeans. They are super flattering, make my butt look awesome, and they’re also really comfortable. For only $22, you can’t complain. I got them in a size 2, so you’ll definitely want to size down. I’m certainly not a size 2.  They also have them in other washes.

The last piece is probably my favorite dress right now. I know I say that a lot, but I have a lot of dresses :D.


This flirty navy polka dotted number is from Nordstrom Rack. It’s great for both work and going on dates. I can’t find it online but Nordstrom Rack has a lot of great polka dotted dresses to choose from. It’s definitely worth checking out your local store to see what they’re carrying too.

Hope you’re all enjoying these last weeks of summer as much as I am. Shoot me a comment if you like what you see or want to chat!
