Express Try On

I have not shopped at Express for a long time, like years! I’m so glad that those that voted on my Instagram stories, chose Express!

First up, is this black jumpsuit, incredibly comfortable! Flattering with the faux wrap detail and it has pockets. It can be dressed up with a blazer and heels or dressed down with some casual sneakers and a denim jacket. Would make a great staple to any wardrobe.

This blazer is very flattering and has a great fit. I love that it has cuffed and cropped sleeves. This is another versatile piece that can be worn with jeans and tank or over a dress or jumpsuit. I paired it here with a pair of black distressed denim and a ribbed v-neck tank.

This great oversized v-neck sweater is so soft. It is easy to throw on with jeans or leggings and your favorite boots or sneakers. It comes in several colors. I paired it here with a pair of black distressed denim.

I have been on the hunt for a simple black sweater and this is a great one. It is fitted around the waste and has dolman sleeves. Very flattering fit. I paired it with some distressed denim.

This is the best cozy quarter zip! It is incredibly soft inside and out. I sized up to a medium so I could wear it with leggings to cover the booty.

One of the softest camo sweatshirts I have found. This one does not have a hood but has the front pocket. Again, I sized up to a medium to pair with leggings.

Happy Shopping!! Please reach out to me if you have any questions!

Jord Watch Review

Where have watches gone? Now that everyone has a cell phone in hand all of the time, you just don’t see people wearing watches, unless of course it is a smart watch. I love the look of a watch (I am or may not look at it) but it is a great accessory for any outfit. I was lucky to have Jord Watches reach out to me to do a collaboration (my first ever!) I was a little hesitant at first, as I didn’t know much about their watches, but once I looked at their website and all of their beautiful watches I was so excited to work with them.

About Jord

When approached by Jord, one of the fist things I did was read about the company. I was fascinated by what they stand for. “We value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living.” – Jord. When looking at the watches you can find out the sustainability of the wood, it tells if it is on the CITES Appendices, IUCN Red List and the vulnerability of the trees themselves. They are extremely careful that the wood they use is not from vulnerable trees which I absolutely loved!

The Watch

The wooden watches, are absolutely gorgeous and have a timeless yet modern look. They offer so many different color variations with metals mixed in. I choose the Cassia in Zebra and Ivory, I was drawn to delicate band and large face, plus I love the gold mixed in with the wood. Being made of wood the watch itself is light weight and comfortable to wear.

When I received watch (in literally 3 days) the packing was absolutely gorgeous. The watch comes in a beautiful wood box, that has a small drawer to place your extra links or other items in. This presentation of the box and the watch itself are both engravable, making these amazing, unique gifts.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Home Picks

I like to use the this sale to stock up on items that are easy gift options for friends and family. Is too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts?!? As I am writing this there is  actually a Hallmark Christmas movie on in the back ground, Christmas in July! I have narrowed it down to 15  home items I would love or have!

 

  1. Recipe Box – this box not only can hold your favorite recipes but will look cute on your kitchen counter. It would be a great gift for your favorite chef!
  2. Pom Pom Bins – these are storage bins for a nursery or toy room. They would also look great with a plant in them! Such a great gift for a baby shower or for the plant lover in your life!
  3. Wine Rack – Any wine lovers out there?!? Such a simple and classic wine rack that would look great in any space.
  4. Soy Candle – candles make such a great gift and I love the uniqueness of the concrete holder. Plus it could double as a planter when the candle is gone.
  5. Serving Board – Love the look of the wood and marble together, great for entertaining or hostess gift!
  6. Paper Towel Holder – Love this simple gold holder.
  7. Fringe Pillow – this pillow also comes in grey or navy. It would be a great addition to a living room or bedroom.
  8. Pom Pom Pillow – Another great pillow to add some dimension to your living room, bedroom or even office.
  9. Decanter & Glasses Set – How gorgeous would this look on your bar or bar cart! The set also comes in copper and light gold.
  10. Bar Cart – Loving the round bar cart, it would fit great in any corner of your home.
  11. Wine Glasses – This stemless glasses set would be a great gift for the wine lover in your life! I may or may not have ordered these for myself!

  13. Vase – You can never go wrong with a beautiful vase! This would look fabulous with some simple greenery in it, on a mantle, or entry way table.
  14. Diffuser – Essential Oil lovers, this diffuser is gorgeous in person! I just got this for our bed room. It is glass, so if you have little ones make sure it is keep out of their reach.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of my favorite sales of the year! The sale includes new fall styles, fall is my favorite time of year and to style. During the sale I like to go in with a game plan, first I set a budget that works for me. Second, I pick a couple of items I want to invest in. This year I am looking for a pair of black or grey booties and a new handbag. Lastly, I always stock up on items that I use all year such as, clarisonic brushes, any make up or skincare, my favorite panties, bras and a few workout clothing pieces.

When to shop:

Early access is Thursday, July 12th, this is for Nordstrom card holders. The sale is open to the public on Friday, July 20th.

How to shop:

The best way to shop is online, Nordstrom has free shipping and returns. If you have a Nordstrom close to you, you can pick up in store, to ensure you get what you want. You can then try the items on there and return right away. I recommend if you unsure of sizing, order a couple of sizes in that item.

I will be going to Nordstrom on the 12th and provide a try on session in my Instagram (@midweststyled) stories. I will provide sizing info on the items there, as well as below.

Spring Dresses

Once March comes around and we start getting teased with semi warmer weather I start looking for new spring items! I am more of a jeans and t-shirt kid of girl but I do like to dress up now and then. As some middle ground I have found some great more casual dresses that I want to share.

First up is this navy flower midi dress. I love the fit of this dress, the top is fitted and the flares out through the waist and leggings. It is flattering on every body type! This dress can up dressed up or down. With cooler weather I would wear it with a denim jacket or sweater.

Second up is this simple black tank dress. The versatility of this dress is endless! I paired mine with this beautiful blue kimono. You could also pair it with a sweater, denim jacket, a moto jacket or bomber jacket too! This dress does fit tight, I sized up one size. This dress comes in a variety of colors. Plus, for any pregnant mamas out there it would look adorable with a bump!
