Happy Friday, gang! I hope you have had a great week! I am excited because this weekend is my husband’s and my 40th college reunion. Yikes! How did that happen? We both went to SMU, so it’s fun that we know the same people and can do these reunions together. We have a class party tonight, and then we will head to the football game tomorrow. I’m so excited to see old friends! I am planning on wearing the outfit in these photos either tonight or to the game tomorrow because SMU colors are blue and red (but I don’t wear red).

I am partnering with Saks Fifth Avenue today to show how easy it is to find everyday essentials from one of my favorite retailers! Honestly, everything we do is pretty casual, so what I shop for the most are the typical everyday pieces. I like to invest in things that can be worn day-to-night or dressed up or down. Saks has so many great brands, and it is super easy to shop on their website. I’ve also found that I don’t have to spend a gazillion dollars at Saks. They carry lots of affordable brands.

You know by now that I am a blazer and jean girl. I love wearing blazers, and most of the time in Dallas, it’s all I need in the fall for a jacket. I fell in love with this tweed one from Maje. It’s a chic double-breasted style with metallic threads and beautiful buttons (I love good buttons!). I paired it with a new (to me) brand of denim and a striped button-down. I will wear this blazer with black leather pants or leggings or over a dress as well. The denim I am wearing is from Good American. I have purchased a dress from this brand, but not denim (until now), and I am so impressed! I love the way they fit, and the price point is fab! The classic striped button-down is one I will wear over and over again. I love a stripe, and this shirt will be worn by itself and under jackets and sweaters. Talk about an everyday essential! I am wearing this look with a suede platform sandal. I had to try a platform again. Platforms are EVERYWHERE! However, they may not be your cup of tea so a good suede bootie would suffice. The bag I am carrying is one of the “it” bags. It’s a rhinestone mesh shoulder bag from Cult Gaia. I have it in the clear as well and love it!

I have so much going on! I have to plan a wedding pretty quickly, and it’s not for my daughter (yet). It is for my mom! She and her beau are tying the knot and want to do it soon. I will update you all on that in a later post. Like I said in a previous post, I feel l like I’m on a hamster wheel right now!

I hope you have a great weekend! Stay well, and be safe! xx

Thank you, Saks Fifth Avenue, for sponsoring this post! Love you, mean it!
