My Daily Uniform




Since I work from home, my daily go-to uniform is a great pair of jeans and a cozy sweater or interesting top. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale really delivered on both. I'm loving these cozy sweaters for fall! This wrap style sweater is essentially my ideal top -- the criss-cross front really flatters my larger chest, and this merino-alpaca blend is so so soft and comfy! I'm wearing it here with a well-fitted pair of Madewell jeans. For the top, I sized down to a medium, and I'm wearing my normal size 30 in the denim.




Another wrap top? Hells yes. I have long been obsessed with Madewell's Thread and Texture Wrap Top {I think I have it in four colors now!} and this is a beautiful fall version with longer, puffy sleeves. This material feels thick and rich -- like you wouldn't even need a sweater during those early fall days! At about $30 during the anniversary sale, this top is a steal! I'm wearing my normal size large here.



This striped top is perfection for transitioning from summer into fall. Since it's on the longer side, I tied it at the front for a cute, casual look, but I also think it would be great worn long with a pair of leggings and boots. I chose a large, which seems to give it an oversized look, so if you're into a closer fit, size down.




I fell in LURVE with last fall's version of this striped pocket sweater {and I know people who missed out on last year's are still crying about it}! This olive, cream, and coral combo is so deliciously autumn, and I think it looks adorable with the collar of a button down peeking out! The way the direction of the stripes contrast make this pattern-mixing extra fun. I'm wearing a large and I love the slightly roomy, boxy, cropped fit -- it's still long enough to front-tuck into these high rise Madewell jeans.





 


Color me obsessed with rainbows! This striped j crew sweater is basically made for me! Thin enough to be worn alone, or layered under an EPIC yellow blazer, this top is gonna be on repeat this fall and winter, I can just feel it. Speaking of this blazer. Wowwwww. I pulled the size 10 based on my usual dress size and this thing slid on like butter. At $130 after the sale, this jacket is a little on the splurge-y side, but you can't put a price on a well-fitting classic piece you'll reach for over and over again. 





What I love about this ribbed fall-tone sweater is that it feels rainbow even though it's not. I'm usually anywhere between a medium and an XL when it comes to sweater, but I sized all the way up to a 1X to make this clingy sweater feel a bit more roomy. I'm wearing it with a truly luxurious pair of Paige jeans. The denim on these pants is thick and squishy and soft and firm. I could sleep in these jeans but they also make me feel like my tummy is being lovingly held in place -- total confidence booster!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | Rainbow Favorites



Udderly Fabulous


Last week, I launched what is now my favorite collection of all time -- BOOBZ!! Running a lingerie business means that I spend a significant amount of time thinking and talking about boobs. I've developed kind of an affinity for them. When I found this boob print on Spoonflower, I knew I had to create lingerie from it! What I'm extra excited about is that my biz bestie, Kim, agreed to make some custom boob-printed accessories to complement the bras and undies I have created. And, since this print is black and white -- and kind of subtle from a distance -- these pouches, scarves, scrunchies, and key fobs, go with everything. I loved pairing them with these bright colors!

Think Pink | Ireland Day 4













Sandals: J Crew Factory
Denim Jacket: Madewell
Earrings: American Eagle
Rainbow Bag: Madewell










Leggings: American Eagle
Tee Shirt: Ban.do
Shoes: Keds
Hoodie: Evy's Tree


Where we stayed: Hotel Doolin
What we drove: The Wild Atlantic Way to Galway
Where we stopped:
  • Cliffs of Moher -- you basically can't be in this part of Ireland and not go to the Cliffs of Moher. It was the most touristy thing we did the whole trip, but yeah, those cliffs were pretty cool. If we had had more time, I would have loved to schedule a boat tour out of Doolin to see the cliffs from the sea.
  • Doolin Sweater Shoppe -- super cute pink exterior and filled with tons of knits
  • Tea at The Ivy Cottage before hitting the road
  • Moran's Oyster Cottage on The Weir -- a must!!! do if you like oysters. This place was so cute, and the food was incredible. Alex was pretty much consigned to eating crackers for lunch, but we were both plesantly surprised when this ended up being his favorite meal of the whole trip. He has the veggie soup, and I had a half dozen of the local oysters and a seafood stew.
  • Galway -- we walked down Shop Street which was bustling, and then cut up Buttermilk Walk to Hazel Mountain Chocolate, and Charlie Byrne's Bookshop. Our favorite little shop we found was called Coffeewerk + Press. Alex got a tea for takeaway while I coveted every single item in their Scandinavian-level minimalist shop.
  • Connemara National Park -- we had the entire park nearly to ourselves as we set out for a golden hour hike. I was fully prepared to be lazy and take the short loop, but the hike to the top is not very challenging and definitely worth the effort!
  • We stayed the night at Rosleage Manor House and I can't say enough good things about this place! I wish we had ten more nights here to enjoy the grounds, hang with Tyson the house dog, eat the delicious food, sip cocktails in the greenhouse-like barroom, and soak up the lovely pinkness of the building!


XO,
Annika
