gifted Romwe Bell Sleeve Dress | Sam Edelman Slides | Baggu Crossbody Bag

I love a good statement sleeve and this dress from Romwe does not disappoint. I can’t wait to try styling this dress with a pair of skinny cropped jeans a la Natalie Deayala. Another few fall favorites that have joined my closet recently are these black slides that go with everything and a new black leather bag from Baggu (I finally retired my orange crossbody, see ya next Spring)!

Happy Monday! I spent the weekend soaking in the BEAUTIFUL fall weather, any fellow Mid-Western knows it’s only a matter of time before it changes. It’s not usually like the month of November to offer such warmth and sunshine. I spent the weekend brunching, binging the Netflix original, The Crown (dying over all the clothes – such amazing designs and styling), cheering on the Hawks, and started to organize my closet. A casual weekend meant for casual attire and what better look than with this floral blouse from Hy-Vee’s newest clothing line, F&F. A clothing line at a local grocery store, you might ask? Well, let me explain!

F&F is a British-inspired international fashion label that offers a broad range of affordable fashion for women, men and children. Right now there are two F&F stores exclusively at HyVee locations in the Des Moines area including: North Ankeny (my local Hy-Vee!) and Fleur Drive. Last week I spent some time going through the women’s collection and tried on so many great items! I walked out with a few blouses, and a set of pajamas (so cozy and comfortable)! Sizing is comparable to European sizing, so I suggest trying on items, and you may have to size up (comparable sizing to H&M).

I’m excited to host a $100 giveaway to help celebrate the exclusive opening of F&F at Hy-Vee at these two locations in Des Moines. Simply enter the Rafflecopter below, there are many ways to enter (there may even be a way to enter on my Instagram page…)! The giveaway winner will be announced next Monday! Good luck!

My Style: Midi Dress

gifted Romwe Dress // Steven Madden Sandals // Old Navy Tote Bag

 This, my internet friends, is hands down my favorite dress of the summer. It’s light weight, comfortable, and stylish. September has slowly crept up on us and I’m going to get as much wear out of this midi dress as possible until tight season arrives, and if the temperature drops, just add a light jean jacket or utility jacket!
