TGIF, my friends!!

Today, I wanted to tell you about this gorgeous little top which just launched today at my friend, Monicha's boutique, Lollipops and Lemonade. This gorgeous jewel toned shade is the perfect color to transition into fall because although it is bold and eye catching, it is still subdue enough for the cooler temps. I absolutely love the fit, and I've been wearing it non stop since it came in. The detailing on the front and shoulders makes it great to throw on to wear around, but also dressy enough to go out on date night (which is exactly what I have it laid out for this weekend). Does anyone else lay out their clothes in advance???

Anyways, I hope that you'll take a moment to stop by her boutique as it is full of great pieces and great prices. Not to mention, she gave my readers the coupon code "FASHIONABLYSTOCKED20" to receive 20% off at checkout!!  I highly recommend this top, and she so sweetly named it the "Nicolette" in honor of our collaboration together. I thought that was so fun!!  It's amazing quality, and it's a great piece to put on with jeans and still look so put together!

Does anyone have any fun plans this weekend??? We are spending a lot of time with our families which will be so fun!

Thank you so much for stopping by today, sweet friends!

XOXO,

Nicolette

Hi Friends,

I know we are still in the thick of summer, at least we certainly are here in Southern California (I am praying for a cooling off, though haha), but with a lot of us going back to school and even for those of us, like me, who are slowing down on shopping for warm weather pieces and attempting to build a fall wardrobe sooner than later, I wanted to share this amazing little poncho I got from Grace and Lace Boutique. I own about 2 or three of tops this style, and I do love them all, but this one in particular has been my favorite item I've gotten thus far. I love the color most of all , it's the "Tweed". I also love the fit and feel. Not only is it very flattering, but if you layer it with a camisole like I did here, it can be used in 50 to 60 degree temps. If you choose to layer with a turtleneck (which would be adorable) or a fitted long sleeve, you can even wear it for cooler temps. It will be a piece that works perfectly for both fall and winter, and I am sure it will garner a ton of compliments. Plus it's super cozy!!  This camisole that I got to layer with is one of the best layering pieces I've gotten in years. The fit is perfect, and it's a longer length, so it will actually layer (unlike most camisoles you find that are cropped right at the waist). It's also a little thicker than most, so it kind of holds you in, smooths you out, and provides a good barrier underneath clothing. I'm obsessed with mine and sure to pick up a few more!

I hope that you all have been having a great week so far!  Thank you so much for stopping by!

XOXO,

Nicolette

TGIF Friends!!!

I'm so happy it's Friday.

Aaron and I are heading out for the weekend to visit my best friend and her fiance in honor of her birthday! I am so excited to do some road tripping with my love, and end up where I can spend some quality time with my bestie!

In honor of the birthday party festivities this weekend, I thought I'd share this super fun party dress I found at Shein.  The price point is just right, and I loveeee the color. I know they also have it in a beautiful hot pink!! So fun!! I love the tassels in the front, it makes the dress so fun and festive, plus the off the shoulder detailing is divine!  I paired it with neutral accessories to really allow the dress to shine and remain a statement piece, but you can dress this up with fun, colorful accessories, as well!

What are everyone's plans this weekend?!  I hope it's a good one!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

XOXO,

Nicolette

Hi Friends,

We've almost made it to the end of this crazy week. As many of you know, I live in Southern California, and I was actually raised in the high desert . Well, some of you may have seen on the news that we had a wildfire that started on Tuesday of this week, and has burned nearly 35,000 acres all of which has been near and around my hometown. They still have only 4% contained, but the scariest part was that my parents were almost evacuated on Tuesday night. I also know friends and family who are currently living in shelters and friend's homes because they too have been evacuated from their houses. I also know a few people who have lost their homes, so this is a devastating event that has really rocked our small towns. If you have a moment, and you could say a quick prayer for our brave men and women fighting this fire, our first responders, those currently displaced from their homes and those who may come home to nothing, my heart would be so grateful. I appreciate you thinking of all of them. 

I decided to share this little off the shoulder dress today because I know I have a few parties and events coming up that this is going to be worn to, and seriously I could not be more obsessed. The fit and feel of this dress is beyond, and even though I own nearly 20 off the shoulder dresses, this is by far my favorite. The price tag has just been reduced to $11, and it's great quality. I love this dress. I really want to wear it to my upcoming 25th birthday, so I hope there's somewhere great to take this to coming up. I normally wear a medium, but I did get this in a large, and I love how flowy it is, and the shoulders fit great, they hold up well, and don't move a lot when I'm moving around (you know how it is with some off the shoulder pieces). 

I paired it with this stunning necklace set I got from Dear Heart Designs. This piece doesn't leave my neck, and the best part about it is that it has my favorite saying ever engraved onto it : "And if not, He is still good". Boy! has there been so many times this saying has been the motto for my life, and it still rings just as true to me to this day. I love having this sentiment around my neck each day, as it's a saying I absolutely live by. The piece is amazing quality and adds such a pretty little touch to all of my looks. I highly, highly recommend this company and their jewelry. 

I hope everyone is having a pretty good week. We're almost to Friday, so that's really exciting!  Thank you so very much for stopping by today!

XOXO,

Nicolette
