BEDROOM RETREAT

Happy Hump Day!

I’m sharing some photos of my bedroom with you today. Rental homes are hard because you don’t want to invest too much time or money in to the space if you don’t plan to be there for long. Some rental property owners won’t allow you to paint or change much as well, so what you can do really depends on the owners approval and your situation. 

When we sold our home and moved from Nashville, TN to Scottsdale, AZ in January we decided to rent for a bit to make sure we knew what area we wanted to be in long term. Luckily, all of the furniture from our previous home works okay in this space. Most of what I had purchased was minimal and neutral so it works with this desert home. I’ve kept things really simple and I’m not buying anything new since I don’t know that we’ll stay more than a year. Hoping to find our own home next year, but we will see what happens!

I’ve used my bedroom rug in the living room, the dresser in Emma’s room, the throw & palm pillows in the living room, etc. I like keeping a consistent vibe/color scheme throughout the house so I can move things around. If I had a money tree, I would buy literally everything from CB2. It’s my favorite home store! I will always be an IKEA lover though and will never stop shopping there. They are always my go-to for real plants/pots as well. I’ve linked everything in my photos at the bottom of this post for you!

Hi Friends!

I’m super excited because five of my favorite Summer Staples are in stock at LULUS! I bought each of these pieces for my Mexico trip in March of 2019 and I’m still wearing all of them on the regular. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll recognize most of them from multiple posts, some even from posts here on the blog. For some reason I only have one photo of the cotton tank dress, but I’ve shown it several ways on Instagram {usually layered} if you do some scrolling. Keeping all of the photos in this post from the Mexico trip. I pretty much wore LULUS finds the entire week! I’ve linked my five favorite pieces at the bottom of this post, as well as very similar accessories. Happy shopping!

It’s Monday friends, and I’m having a tough time dealing with still being stuck at home. Posting this peachy look from March 15th, because that’s the last time I went to brunch before the quarantine. I can hardly wait to get brunch ready and go out with my girls when this is over! Who’s with me??

This dress comes in nine colors for under $40 and it’s so fun and flirty with the tiers! I wanted a head to toe neutral look this day, but it will also be cute styled more edgy to get the hard and soft look. Details and links below.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week filled with lots of sunshine!

Hi Friends!

Showing you another way to wear this sporty Aritzia set on those mornings when you need a shower, but don’t have time. Or maybe you don’t have kids and have time/energy for a shower every day, haha. In that case, here is just another way to style it for an easy Saturday {or Monday} look that’s relaxed but still cute. Add a light weight button down shirt, tie it up, and throw on a baseball hat. This Adidas hat comes in so many cute colors but I went with something super neutral to go with everything in my closet. Links to shop my full look at this bottom of this post!

Happy FRI-YAY!

I’ve been seeing tons of #quarantinepillowchallenge photos and I decided to start my own thing and raise it with a #quarantinesheepskinchallenge. I mean, why not?! 

You can actually shop most of what I’m wearing! I’ve linked everything still available at the bottom of this post. The belts are both last year from Zara. 

Which look is your favorite? Blue, or pink?

BLENDING IN TO NATURE

Happy Monday!
I’ll just be here blending in with nature. This easy breezy dress just makes me feel lighter & happy with the leaf print, and the ruffles and high slit make me want to shimmy in the sun. I even got a little Marilyn moment as you can see below. 
The strapless dress is more versatile than people think. You can layer it over a basic tee, turtleneck, or even a thin button down. The one I’m wearing has a size zipper, it doesn’t just pull on. Dresses are my favorite because of how many ways you can wear them. With this dress you can belt it, throw on a blazer, add a denim or leather jacket, get cozy with a chunky cardigan, tie a denim shirt around your waist {like I did here on Instagram}…get creative. 
It’s already Spring weather in Arizona, and as you know it stays warm here for most of the year so I’ll be wearing this dress from now until November. If you live somewhere cooler this dress would be super cute with tall boots or booties & a turtleneck.
This head to toe look {except for my bracelet} is shoppable now on Amazon Prime for under $100! I’ve linked everything individually at the bottom of this post, but you can also follow me on Amazon by clicking on my name in my Amazon link and clicking ‘+Follow’.  My link allows you to shop from all of my idea lists and from my photos. 🙂 
I would love to hear {and see} how you style this dress! Leave a comment or send me a photo if you order and I’ll feature you on my Insta stories.

I know I’ve already shared these photos on Instagram, but I had to share them here as well because I’m loving this sporty set from ARITZIA soooo much! I actually ordered it in white as well. They are currently offering 20% off sitewide + free shipping and returns! I discovered this store during my last trip to NYC and their basics are in my top faves. This look is also so cute loaded up with gold jewelry and a blazer. Slip on some mules or sneakers and you’re set! I’ll put together some more looks with these pieces for you guys soon. Also, these oversized sunglasses! Living in them. I have them in nude as well but they come in like 15 colors on Amazon. My full look is linked at the bottom of this post.

I hope everyone is staying healthy and positive!

SHIMMER IN THE SUN

Hi Friends!

I’m in to gold more than ever these days. Something about it just makes me happy. Probably the shine! I bought this gold shimmery cover up over a year ago for a trip to Mexico and I love it just as much today. It’s a timeless, chic style appropriate for all ages. I’m so excited that it’s still available to shop! I’ve given you direct shopping links to my full look at the bottom of this post.  It does run long, so if you are shorter keep in mind you may need to wear wedges with this cover up. I’m 5’5 and wearing a S for reference.

Is anyone else dreaming of a beach vacation after this quarantine?! I know I am! Let’s be honest though, I’ll be over the moon to just do brunch with my girlfriends. Also margs by a friends pool. Anything around people! I have a feeling a lot of us will be going full glam, even for our Target runs after being cooped up for so long. 

I hope everyone is getting some Vitamin D during this time! I’ve been soaking up the sun as much as possible {wearing SPF of course}. Stay strong, stay calm, and add to cart. 😉

Happy hump day friends!

Last week I showed you just a handful of ways to wear a long, cozy cardigan sweater. This week I’m showing you a few ways to style a shorter, slightly oversized turtleneck sweater. It may not be oversized on everyone, but I bought a size medium to have more room. I like this style of sweater to be more loose.OUTFIT DETAILS

BALANCING ACT

Tags

, , , , , , ,

Life is a balancing act, so getting dressed shouldn’t be something causing you additional stress. Am I right?!Here are a few steps to help you get started…

STEP 1. Start by making a list of what your wardrobe staples should be to fit your lifestyle. Note what key pieces you may be missing or want to update. *For some its easier to do this seasonally instead of the full wardrobe at once.

STEP 2. Think about what type of accessories you enjoy wearing most and ones you may need depending on what climate you live in. Then make a list of what you are missing or would like to update.

STEP 3: Figure out your budget. You may be able to do one shopping trip and get everything you need/would like, but you may need to break it down to one piece per week, every two weeks, one a month, etc. Figure out what works for your wallet.

STEP 4: Make your shopping list and prioritize in order of what you need the most.

STEP 5: Donate or sell anything you want/need to replace {one you’ve replaced it}, as well as anything that you don’t love, aren’t wearing, doesn’t fit or isn’t functional for your lifestyle. For most, less is more if you want getting dressed to be fun and stress free.

Now, you may have started reading this and STEP 1 was already overwhelming. If that’s you and you need or prefer the help of a Wardrobe Stylist, I would love to work with you! Some of you may need to do a full closet cleanse before starting these steps. I’m here to help! You can email me {Info@StylingByErica.com} and I will be thrilled to connect with you and come up with a plan of action.
