Top | Denim: old, similar here | Shoes | Similar Handbag | Watch | Phone Case | Necklace (it's not really shown in these photos but you can kinda see the chain and it's my absolute favorite that I wear everyday!! It has my new initials monogramed on it! Thank you Caitlin for the cutest gift!)

I could not tell you guys how many times I have worn this top!! It is seriously my new go-to whether paired with white denim like above, or jean shorts on hotter days - I always seem to be wearing it! It is definitely my favorite recent buy. The cold shoulder trend is huge right now and I will be doing a post, probably next, highlighting my favorite cold shoulder tops currently so be on the look for that! I also love the tie detailing of the sleeves and the fabric is nice, thick and great quality - it is truly all over an amazing top!! (I think I might even order it in pink too...) 

Mules and slides are a huge shoe trend this season that I honestly didn't understand much until I bought my first pair. I love these and am always getting so many compliments on them! If you haven't jumped on the bandwagon yet, do it. They have the cutest styles out at the moment too! I included a couple of my favorites below! 

This week has been so hectic, fun, and busy!! On top of our busy personal lives, Al and I spent a good three days seeking out new inventory for Shop KarlieRae! We are restocking a few favorites too, yay! (Side note, we are upping the number of items we order since everything seems to sell out so fast!! Especially the smaller sizes and I really want to give more people the opportunity to buy! So hopefully things will stay in stock a little longer now!!) I would love to hear from you guys, what type of pieces you would like us to carry - dresses, rompers, shorts, skirts, shoes, different styles of tops, accessories, shoes? Let me know your thoughts & favorite things to buy at good deals since killer deals are what we are about! Happy Wednesday babes!

Dress (use code 'karlierae20' for 20% off their site | Neck Tie (I have several and also tie them onto my handbags as a cute accessory!!) | Handbag | Watch (use code 'KARLIE15' for 15% off 

So I FINALLY got myself a denim dress & am now officially in the denim dress club, yes! 🙌🏼 I've been wanting to style one for awhile because there really are endless ways to wear them - and now I finally get to! When styling this look, I was so happy that spring is in season because I have been wanting to bust out my neck ties again but am really only someone who wears them in the warmer months. This one is one of my favorites, and like I mentioned above, I have several & will also tie them onto my handbags as a bag accessory or will tie around my head like a headband and tie at the top which is an adorable summer hairstyle too. You gotta get yourself (at least) one! 

This handbag is one of the newest to my collection and it is Melie Bianco! I love the thicker strap with the flower detailing - so perfect for these upcoming months and also a huge handbag trend of the moment! It comes with the skinny crossbody strap as well so you can really wear it however you'd like. I think it just may be my new go-to!  

Back to the denim dress, I also plan on wearing it other ways such as with sneakers and also more dressy heels! The amazing thing about styling a denim dress is you really have the freedom to dress it up or down as much as you like! You could also wear a jacket or a belt & accessorize according to your style! I usually keep accessorizing fairly simple with a watch but I'm hoping to step up my accessorizing game soon! I mentioned above but incase you glanced past - you can get my watch or any other of their watching 15% off using code 'KARLIE15' :) Anyways, I think a fun color of statement earrings with this dress would be SO CUTE! Maybe that is what I will do next time. 

I wore this look to the Downtown Seattle Nordstrom spring beauty trend event on Saturday, which was such a successful and fun event! One of my favorite events I've gone to as a blogger - I must say. Jen Atkin, who is a celebrity hairstylist and very known for doing the Kardashian's hair, was there and I even got to chat with her and snap some photos! Her personality was THE BEST, I might have a slight girl crush now. We also got sneak peeks into all the newest beauty and skincare products and there are so many I want to try!! I will update you all when I do! 

Hope you guys are having a fantastic start to your week!  

Xx,

Romper | Shoes | Watch

It's been a little bit since my last post, but we just got back from Arizona on Tuesday night and I really tried to unplug while I was there. It felt so good to! I definitely still took photos, but only got online to post, not scrolling through as often as I usually do and it was very refreshing. It's the best feeling when you are genuinely around people who's company you enjoy that you even forget to check your phone! 

Since I've been home, I've been really focusing on A) cleaning my house and getting settled again, and B) launching a couple new arrivals at my store! And finally, today is the day new items will hit Shop KarlieRae!! We have four new arrivals coming in including the romper photographed about, which I am obsessed with! I wore it in Arizona out to dinner one night and got so many compliments!! We also have a one piece swim suit that I also wore in Arizona and think you guys will love, our Blair Off The Shoulder Top is now available in blush, and a cute distressed basic tee! Last, we are restocking our striped tie tee that many of you have been asking about!! I am so happy to be restocking it! Items go live at noon today so make sure to check them out! 

I have a busy weekend ahead with lots of events with my local Seattle blogging babes! I am so excited to share a couple fun things we have up our sleeves! Make sure to follow along on my Instagram story, I have a feeling I will be posting on there lots!

Sweater | Similar Denim | Handbag is older style, new style here | Same with Espadrilles, new ones here | Necklace 

This sweater is the perfect transitional piece into any season. It is a Free People find from a couple months ago and a perfect go to piece. It comes in a couple different colors and I definitely think I will go back for more. I was in love with the way it looked with my espadrilles (have I been wearing the crap out of these or what). I linked a couple cute styles of espadrilles and similar sweaters below! 

I mentioned a couple posts ago that we are headed to Arizona, we leave in two days, freaking yay!! Our weather in Seattle has been absolutely whack - rainy and windy one moment then crisp, beautiful and sunny the next. I need some consistency!! And only constant sun please.  

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw me mention earlier this week that Al was sick...well he is still sick!! 😭 And I even got the bug for about three days but am feeling over it now. Poor hubby isn't though. So I've been trying to cheer him up by making some of his favorite meals for dinner. Tonight - breakfast for dinner! He loves Swedish pancakes so those for him, & an egg scramble for me. I could eat egg scrambles for any meal so I'm pretty stoked. Send prayers he feels better before we leave! Being sick on vacation is the worst 👎🏼  

Anyways, I hope you are all having a fun & relaxing weekend!!
