Topshop Love

TGIF! Boy I am so ready for this weekend to celebrate friend's birthdays and go to the Weeknd concert in Philly! Fall is definitely rolling in so the boots are coming out. These Jeffrey Campbell Joe Lace Up boots have been a staple in fall winter wardrobe for 5 seasons now! They are worth being resoled because they have yet to go out of style. They are also still available at Free People in tons of other colors. This adorable little dress I scoop up from Topshop at Nordstrom, buy it here for only $48!! This bomber jacket is no longer available but was a steal I found at the Nordstrom Rack from Free People. Have an amazing weekend!!!

His & Her's Going Out Look

You may find this as a surprise but for a twenty-three year old I don't love going out all that much but boy do I love to get dressed for it! I don't know if I got my fill of going out growing up in a college town or  if I'm just more content now with Netflix and chilling with the dog, & Spencer for a night in. On the rare occasion we do go out on the weekend but have majorly scaled back since we want to save up for a house! 

In the fall it's so hard to get the right balance of sleeves and jeans but still looking cute and not wanting to let go of the beautiful summer months we just enjoyed. We all know it's cold outside and then burning hot inside a bar, not a fun struggle. That is why I absolutely adore this Free People scoop back seamless top! I own it in multiple colors cause it is the perfect top for fall and winter going out. They made it into a bodysuit this year but still perfect for this look and available for only $58, buy here. My dark wash skinnies are also from Free People still available for $78, buy here. Now let me apologize in advance for how much you are going to see these Stuart Weitzman Elevated over the knee boot in my blog this coming winter. I am going to live in these boots they are so comfortable and were the most gracious gift from my boss. They were sold out during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale but recently became available again through Nordstrom, link here.

I wanted to share a men's going out look too because it's something I've never done before on Carlita's Closet! I knew we were good together when I found out he likes to dress up as much as I do. In this post his shirt is 7 Diamonds, burgundy pants Bonobos, and the boots are Magnanni. The styles were all purchased at Nordstrom or Nordstrom Rack, but are all sold out. Will find links to like items this week! 

Similar Men's Boot but plain style available at Nordstrom:

Chilly Day Vibes

Short and sweet on this Monday morning, because I am road tripping today back home to visit my family! See you in a few hours State College!! This fall weather is slowly rolling in and let me tell you I am not ready to switch out my spring/summer wardrobe yet. Transitional season are so rough because you must get in your fill of wearing your favorites before the season ends. These Jeffrey Campbell Coors booties are something I live in for working in the spring and summer. These printed wide leg pants are an old sale pair of ASTR from Nordstrom. My cute white blouse is from Topshop this particular one is sold out but shop this Scallop edge top now. For a similar look also shop these wide leg striped Band of Gypsies pant from Nordstrom today.

Delaware River Tubing!

Adventure awaits on the Delaware River! This was the absolute perfect way (in my eyes) to spend Memorial Day. I heard about this stretch of the river from a Facebook video from the Thrillist and I just knew I had to go. It was definitely one of the last warm enough days of the season to enjoy it too, a perfect 85 degree day. We chose to go on the New Jersey side of the river with the Delaware River Tubing company in Frenchtown, New Jersey. You can rent a tube, kayak or canoe for your adventure down the river. It was $50 a person for our double tube which also included lunch from the Famous River Hotdog Man and two free passes for next year. The hotdogs weren't that amazing but let me tell you they were the perfect break through your 4 hours of tubing. I did risk it and take my iPhone, obviously by the photos above, but did protect it with a plastic baggie. Next year Spencer and I will definitely save a few bucks and just buy some tubes ourselves! Just have to bring two cars, one for your drop off point and one for pick up a few miles down. We saw plenty of good spots in Bucks County on the PA side to park but you want to float down the river on the New Jersey side because it is deeper!

Summer Days Almost Gone

Getting in my last fill of wearing shorts and open toe shoes before fall really hits! I was loving the neutral tones this day, a beautiful 78 degree September afternoon. I have practically lived in these Jeffrey Campbell heels since last summer and they will continue to be a staple in my spring/summer wardrobe because they go with everything. I own them in black too, they're an excellent investment and on sale at Nordstrom currently! These shorts are a brand called Ocean Drive that I found at Metro in State College which is one of my favorite little boutiques up at PSU. My top is from Ann Taylor last spring and has sold out, but you can shop a similar tank on sale here!  I always get compliments when I wear this top whether it is styled to work, going out to dinner, or a simple day off. Last but certainly not least score this amazing bag on sale at Henri Bendel today! Keeping it short and sweet today!
