I can’t say that I’m excited for cooler temperatures. Call me Californian, but the thought of freezing through another winter isn’t something I’m welcoming with open arms. No matter how cute the sweaters and booties are this year. Regardless of what I want, it’s coming. Today’s post is all about transitional pieces to get ready!

When the girls of our Trendspin Linkup wanted to change this week’s theme to Fun Accessories, my first thought was hell yes. There are a million reasons to love accessories. My favorite one? They fit no matter what size you are. Today’s outfit combines all of my favorites that I’ve been wearing to death this summer!

Pink Tiered Dress (so good for weddings!) | Beige Heeled Sandals | Ombre Tassel Earrings | Similar White Studded Bag | MantraBand Bracelets | Sunglasses ($55)

Two weekends ago, we celebrated Matt’s (my Instagram husband) 30th birthday with a marathon of events. For someone who hates having the attention on him, he really wanted to go big this year. I can’t think of anything worth celebrating more than him though (sappy but true)! Being relatively new to Chicago, one of the things we tried was a yacht cruise with Mystic Blue. Why not spend Sunday Funday on a boat?

Weekend Sale Alert: Loft and Dermstore

As always, there are a few weekend sales going on this weekend! However, there are 2 that I think are actually worth shopping!

Loft Sale

The first is the LOFT sale where select items are 50% off and everything else is 40% off! While it seems like LOFT is discounting every other week, there are actually a lot of great pieces in this sale that you guys have been asking me for! Specifically these 2 categories below. I also added in what I bought from the sale in case that interested any of you!

Dermstore Sale

The second sale is at Dermstore which I posted to yesterday’s Instagram stories! They’re having their anniversary sale and offering 25% off the entire site. They are on the same level as Sephora with a little more focus on skincare (I order from them all the time). If you’re been needing to stock up on a few beauty products, take this opportunity! There are still a few months left until the Sephora VIB sale and finding great deals on beauty can be tough in between. I always love feeling like I saved a little bit of money too. If you’re a little lost, here are some of the brands they have including the brand that makes the serum that I swear by. I’m on my 4th bottle of this so I opted for the 3.3 oz version. I did a full review of it here!

Jurlique (makes my night serum)

GLAMGLOW (best face mask EVER)

Clarisonic (read more about how I use mine here)

Becca (for the girl who loves makeup and highlighters)

Sunday Riley (makes my Martian Mattifying Toner)

Supergoop! (safe beauty – read more about why this matters here)
