The Case for Camo

Camoflauge makes me feel some type of way. I don’t know what it is but it’s part cool and part nineties nostalgia but i’ve never gotten over it. I picked up this jacket in a vintage store while killing time in New York, but I’m thrilled to say camo is making a huge comeback this fall!Even while the whole world laughed at this timeless print thanks to ‘Duck Dynasty’ and such, I never lost hope, friends. Show of hands for anyone else who never gave up on it in the first place? (Am I raising my hand alone?)

You guys know how I love my neutrals, but for some reason this is a neutral to me. Sure it’s a bit of an out-there print sometime, but I always styled O and Oshiolema in camo and eventually realized it goes with just about everything. I have to be a liiitttle bit careful since I’m no delicate flower and it veers a bit masculine pretty quickly. Paired with the right accessories camouflage can look super smart and it’s the perfect contrast to an all white or black and white outfit.

Here are some more favorites that caught my eye for this season


‘Work at Home Mom’ Essentials for 3 Budgets

I heard someone say “August is like the New Year for Moms.” Since I’m homeschooling (more on that later) this isn’t quite true for me. My days will be busier than ever, but for a few hours one day a week, I head to a coffee shop to turn my wifi off, put my phone on Airplane mode and work until the very last second. I have a set system down (you can read more about it here) but also a cast of characters I couldn’t do it without. Since I know so many of you out there call a coffee shop your cubicle too, here are Work Day essentials for 3 different budgets. 

Yellow for Fall

Can I say that yet? Fall? If you live in Texas you’re giving me a hard ‘No’ but September always means Fall to me! And friends, September is just three days away. If you were to look in my closet, you might think I have somewhat of a uniform. And you’d be right. I feel my absolute best in neutrals and think they’re the most practical on the bang for your buck scale, but also take the guess work out of getting dressed. Sometimes though, just sometimes, I’m drawn to something beautiful and bright and yellow for Autumn just feels right.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks: Fall Classic Essentials + Athletic Wear

Happy Friday, Friends!! Here’s another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post for you. Today, I’m sharing my Classic Fall Essentials and favorite of Athletic wear. Let’s start with the classics. This is my first time playing around with a new feature so just click on the items in my collage and it’ll take you right over to the site!

I’m a firm believer in all of these pieces and I rotate a version of each of them h e a v i l y all autumn long. First, let me talk about that expandable Longchamp bag. I’ve owned it for 7 years now and literally just brought it to the lake last weekend. It’s the workhorse of my bags! I keep it small if I’m carrying it as a purse but when I really need to load it up, I just unzip it and suddenly it’s practically triple the size. Also, I packed our tub of vegan butter in there and it melted on the drive home. I just wiped it down, rinsed it out and it’s good as new. If you get one thing, that’s it.

I think the best thing about Fall is that rotating a couple outfits is so easy. That green jacket over the striped tee with black denim, then the striped tee with the trench coat and high waisted denim…it’s just so simple and effortless.

On to Athletic wear- I have to say that even within hours of me making this collage, some of the items have already sold out. MAN! I’m including a whole shop below so you don’t miss out on all the awesome athletic wear because it’s just that good, guys. Click the item you’re interested in and it’ll take you right over.

Have you picked up anything from the sale yet? Let me know! Have a beautiful weekend.
