What Caroline bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019:

These are three items that Caroline purchased from the Nordstrom sale! From Caroline: I needed a winter coat as I didn’t have one and I’m really into the “shiny” jacket trend. This jacket is perfect. I’m wearing my usual size of a small and it fits perfectly. It is also packable and comfortable! This jacket comes in petite sizing as well as a bright orange/yellow and a white color. Hannah the Bachelorette has this jacket! I also purchased three of those v-neck tees. They’re super comfortable and come in a lot of different colors. I sized up to a medium as I think they run small! Lastly, I got suckered into buying this cardigan! My office gets very cold and I would usually never spend this much on any item of clothing, however, once I tried it on, I was sold. This is quite possibly the most comfortable item I own and I justified buying it knowing I will be wearing this every day this fall and winter! I’m wearing my usual size of a small/medium!

What I bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019:

This outfit is so perfect for the upcoming fall and winter! If you’re lounging around the house or hitting the gym, the blush pink of the sweater paired with the gold in the sneakers is so fun and feminine and provides a nice pop of color during these gloomy months! I’m wearing a size medium in the jacket and a size 9 in the sneakers (my normal size). Many are saying to size down in these sneakers, but I didn’t because I don’t like to wear socks with mine!

Faux Fur Jackets — most under $45!

Faux fur is one of my favorite things to wear. Whether it’s on boots, jacket or even my handbag. I’m a huge fan to be honest. I have “way too much” even though I truly don’t think you can ever have enough. 

This jacket is under $30! I’m wearing a medium. Shop below.

If there is a certain look you’re going for, a simple or “extra” faux fur jacket can really seal the outfit.

Plaids + Capes – Under $50!!

The easiest way to take a plain basic outfit and turn it classy & ready for dinner or work! Whether you’re wearing dress plants, jeans, leather pants or a skirt. It’s also how I take a lazy day where I don’t feel like getting dressed really and it helps me look more put together. You can add a belt around the cape like I did below as well. A simple accessory that can also change up your look. Below I’ve link this exact cape and some others that I thought we’re stunning!

Must have cardigans for Fall!

Fall is finally here! Fall fashion is my favorite. I break out all of my favorite sweaters, oversized flannels and beanies with my favorite jeans or leggings and feel cozy all season!

One of my favorite summer to fall transition pieces are cardigans! Cardigans are easy to pair with almost any outfit from jeans and a top to a dress. They’re the perfect transition piece when it’s chilly in the morning and warmer during the afternoon. Perfect for chilly office environments or an evening out.

You don’t have to break the bank while looking stylish. I’ve linked all of my favorite cardigans for fall that are all under $50 from some of my go-to stores!

Hooded cardigans

The only thing better than a cardigan sweater is a cardigan sweater with a hood. These are SO cute and stylish, and I can already picture myself wearing these on a rainy day with my favorite umbrella.

Printed cardigans

There’s nothing more stylish than a fun print. Animal prints are so in right now for fall and stripes are a classic wardrobe staple that you cannot go wrong with!

Textured cardigans

I am so obsessed with textured cardigans and love that the “popcorn” texture is back in style. These are some of my favorite textured cardigans that I’ve found that just look so comfy and cozy.

Solid colored cardigans

Last but not least, the wardrobe must-have of a solid colored cardigan. These fall colors of deep lilac, charcoal and mustard are so in for fall right now that you’ve got to find one that you love to play around with. They’re so easy to style with a fun print top or dress!

Do you have a favorite cardigan you love?

Slide into fall with this new shoe trend!

One shoe trend that I just can’t get enough of this summer are slides! Caroline and I have both been obsessed with slide sandals and mules this summer and they are the perfect staple to add to your wardrobe and an easy transition into fall!

Here are some of my favorites:

Also some others:

Kendall & Kylie Shiloh Chain Leather Slide Sandal

Nordstrom Rack is always my go-to for shoes and when I saw these chain leather slides on sale a few months ago, I knew I just had to get them! I have these in white and I am obsessed and get so many compliments on them. PLUS they’re on sale for 70% off right now!

Adidas Slides

For a sportier look, I got these Adidas slides in white and love them. They’re so comfortable and look sleek for coming from the gym or taking the dogs on a walk. Plus they’re on sale at Journey’s right now!

NotRated Slides

Another pair of slides that I love that Caroline purchased recently from Journey’s are these slides from Not Rated! They come in black, white and nude and they’re SO cute. I love the floral detail on them and they’re dressier than wearing flip-flops!

How to pair Fenty Beauty and JCPenney Fashion x Sephora inside JCPenney

Exciting things happening! Many of you have tried some of the products from Fenty Beauty, but have you SEEN the new products yet?! I am SO pumped! In collaboration with Sephora inside JCPenney I will be showing you how I styled three different outfits from JCPenney with three different colors from Fenty Beauty’s Mattemoiselle Lip Collection which I got at Sephora inside JCPenney too!

JCPenney opened Sephora inside JCPenney at their stores in 2006 and they are doing big things! High quality clothes AND high end beauty products in one place?? YES PLEASE. It’s a great way to get everything you need to shop for in one place.

Sephora inside JCPenney also offers free mini-makeovers at their locations! Guess who got to go in-store and try the new Fenty Beauty Mattemoiselle line? YES, ME! This line has 14 amazing, matte lipstick shades that will seriously leave you speechless! I decided to do 3 different outfits with my #FentyFace and match 3 fun colors from the Mattemoiselle Collection.

Click HERE to check out all the colors!

Below, I have on this Project Runway Knot Waist Sweatshirt Dress (perfect for chilly days). I love the details in the middle of this dress because it accentuates my waist and my curves. Sometimes, in the winter, we end up of losing our shape with all of the thick clothes and layers we have to wear to stay warm!

Direct link to shop is HERE.

Comes in 2 colors: Purple & Grey. I’m wearing a size small.

Currently on sale for under $30!

I decided to pair this outfit with the Mattemoiselle lipstick in the shade “Griselda”. I think this lip shade ties the outfit together nicely and isn’t “too girly”. 

Link to shop is HERE.

Also wearing these awesome suede, knee high boots from Liz Claiborne! I am obsessed with these boots. I always have a hard time finding a pair of boots that don’t slouch down while walking, these stay in place!

Link to shop is HERE. Currently 80% off!! No joke, $20!

If you have heard anything about Fenty Beauty at this point, you know that Rihanna is killin’ it when it comes to quality! And above all- she actually made products for ALL skin types and shades. No, seriously…all of them. A lot of brands claim to be all-inclusive, but end up falling short. Not this line! The colors are SO rich and yet still light and wearable! And the shades go from light to dark, and everything in between!

Click HERE to shop the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r foundations.

The second outfit I put together has more contrast. I LOVE contrast in my outfits, and these Mattemoiselle shades will have plenty of options for that! SO, can we talk about these bell sleeves?! This blouse is from T.D.C Funnel – The sleeves are the perfect length so I still feel comfortable going out to eat and not getting food all over! Yeah, I’m clumsy! So what?! Haha.

Click HERE to shop!

They currently have black in stock. I’m wearing a size small!

I paired this top with black pants from BELLE + SKY and, yep, those suede knee high boots, again! I told you I love them!

The Mattemoiselle lipstick Plush Matte lipstick shade I went with for this outfit is “Shawty”. I swear, the names of these lip colors are almost just as awesome as the line itself! I chose this shade because it’s a much darker color and it looks awesome against a white top. Plus, it made my outfit just a bit more edgy.

Click HERE for the lipstick!

My third outfit was honestly my favorite and kind of out of my comfort zone — which is why I’m releasing how much I loved it. I was challenged to pick an outfit I usually wouldn’t wear and pair it with a color lip I haven’t done before either. Challenge taken and I’m in love!!

I rocked this killer floral track suit with my feminist t-shirt underneath.

Don’t you just love this? I now wanna wear this jacket all the time.

Project Runway Floral Bomber Jacket – it’s currently on sale – under $20!!

Click HERE to shop the jacket.

Project Runway Floral Track Pants – also on sale – under $35!!

Click HERE to shop the pants.

My feminist t-shirt is also from the Project Runway Line! It’s currently under $10.

Click HERE to shop this graphic t-shirt!

For this look I wanted to pair it with a FUN & in-your-face color! I picked “One Of The Boyz” — it’s a gorgeous lilac color. I’m glad I tried something I normally wouldn’t. It made me want to explore more when it comes to colors in my makeup routine!

An Easy Way To Wear A Dress In Winter!

Wintertime would be SO much cooler (pun intended) if we could continue wearing our favorite clothes without freezing to death. Well, luckily there are a couple things we can do to keep frostbite at bay. When the cold air hits, there are still a ton of outfits we can get away with, as long as it isn’t super windy. NOTHING can get past that wind! I LOVE wearing dresses year round, so I am always thinking of new ways to style them and stay warm(ish).

As we all know, layering is so important when trying to stay warm. The dress I am wearing is from one of my favorite stores and it’s linked below! It has thin fabric, but it’s layered with a thicker slip underneath. I also like that the sleeves are long and thin, so I can wear it under virtually ANY jacket or coat.

NEXT- Leggings, tights, stockings-oh my! I picked these fun ones up at my local Macy’s Backstage inside Macy’s (thank you for the gift card!!)

You could be wearing the most simple dress but be able to jazz it up perfectly with the right pair of tights or stockings! I have found some amazing and inexpensive stockings at a few stores this season and they are linked below for you. The ones I am wearing below are flower printed, so they are edgy, but still feminine. I like pairing this dress with a black coat that runs a little longer than the dress itself, that way I can still show off my stockings, and ankle boots (or booties) !

Alright, so we will stay reasonably warm for a quick walk to the movies (or wherever you are going that night) from the car. Right? Right! What are we missing?

Yup- ACCESSORIES! One thing I will always adore about accessories is that the weather doesn’t matter! The fashion gods didn’t let us down in that department. (thank you, fashion gods!) Below the sunnies I have linked you can shop and also get $15 each or anything from their website by using code: tonyamichelle — every dollar saved counts!!

I decided to wear these round, jet black, sunnies to pull together my whole outfit. With my black boots, my belt, and my sunnies, everything comes together nicely!

Also the lip color I’m wearing is linked HERE.

So, like I said earlier, this outfit is a bit edgy, but still feminine. I kept that same vibe with my makeup as well. I was a little light on my eyes, but decided on a darker lipstick. You can also find similar circle earrings here!

Well, I hope you all like this look as much as I do!

I’m all about fun patterns and making a statement, which you guys already know. I saw this Mesh floral pattern dress and had to have it. 

How fun is this? The quality on this is LEGIT. I purchased in brown cause I wanted my hair to show when wearing. It comes in black, green and brown!

I styled mine with some hunter green booties. You can add black tights and even do some thigh highs! Again, taking one piece and being able to wear it in multiple seasons is great.

It’s under $20! Runs true to size. I’m wearing a Medium. (I’m 5’7″)

Direct link to purchase is HERE.

Another sweater that I fell in love with is this pink pompom pullover!! I love being able to wear the latest trends and not have to be sad about how much I paid for it when I decide to donate or give to a friend. 

It’s easy to style, I personally wore it with some jeans and sneakers. You could wear black pants and heels, add a statement necklace and you’re ready to go. I love pieces you can wear different ways.

It comes in “one size” – it would fit a S/M perfectly. It’s under $25. 

Direct link to shop is HERE.

These jeans are also something I had to pick up. High waisted destroyed denim!!

Can’t ever have enough good jeans, this fit me like a glove and I might order a second pair.

I also picked up these stunner shades! The Double Rims Pilot Sunglasses in Black, They are under $10. No joke, I was shocked and didn’t believe it at first. They are well made and I’ve been wearing them every other day for the last 2 weeks! Direct link for these sunnies are HERE.
