It's Friday! 

 

We have made it to the weekend (almost)! 
This weekend is going to be a bit of whirlwind as I fit packing and preparing for our trip into the mix of our other weekend obligations.  Do you have any plans? I would love to hear them!

 

Both this shirt and the jeans are great pieces that you can use to transition from summer into fall. One styling option would be to pair them with a chunky cardigan (I'm eyeing my burgundy cardigan), a pair of booties and you are set. However, since it's still summer, you can see how I paired this shirt with a pair of paper bag shorts here.

 These jeans are amazing. They are a stretchy material that does not get baggy! It's kind of a miracle! I love how they have a polished look other than the ripped knees.

 The wrinkles drive me a bit crazy but I am learning to embrace them since there are certain materials that I can't do anything about it. This shirt is made up of 55% linen and 45% Viscose Because of the simplicity of this shirt you can pair it with a lot - skirts, wide leg pants, shorts, chino style trousers, jeans, etc.

 I am obsessed with these sandals. They made it into my  July Favorite's  blog post.  The souls are not padded and the straps are made of genuine leather. They are very comfortable and are perfect for dressing up or down.

Camisole - also comes in multiple colors here and here. Topshop typically runs small. However,  I'm wearing 6 US which fits like a 2-4. I had ordered the size 4 US as well to compare. I honestly keep debating which one I wanted to go with. After wearing the 6 US one time it got a bit loose on me. I was worried that I chose the wrong size but once it was washed it was fine. Bottom line, if you are in between sizes, it depends on how you like your clothes to fit. If you prefer more fitted do the smaller size. If you prefer them a little looser to the bigger one. I hope that helps!
Jeans - They seem to run a tad bit small, so size up. I am either a 26 or 27 and went with a 27 in these. 
Sandals - True to size. Or if you are in between sizes I would size up half a size. I am wearing a 9.
