My simplified pick of the top 5 categories to purchase during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.Read More
Today’s #TryOnConfidential on my IG stories features one of my absolute FAVORITE closet staples… the jumpsuit/romper. I wasn’t always a “Jumpsuit Kween” but I adapted the trend a little over a year ago and I’ve never looked back. Why do I love them so much? Funny you ask. I actually love them because they are easy to throw on, you can INSTANTLY look polished and stay comfortable. I also love that I don’t have to wear shorts underneath to prevent any chafing situation. So basically, it’s my lazy girl hack for looking chic and staying comfortable.
I’ve gone ahead and divided them by categories, but if you prefer to view them all you can just scroll to the bottom to see everything. Many items are on sale so be sure to stock up for every occasion. Would love to hear your thoughts or any questions below!

Shape wear for jumpsuits:
I own two pairs of capri length shape wear, this ensures that you won’t see a line on your thigh from typical short length shape wear. All of the below styles are lightweight but supportive so that you’ll stay comfortable all day long!
The holiday season has officially begun! As we are quick to make our shopping lists for others, it’s easy to overlook our own self care. This holiday season, don’t forget to take care of yourself and allow yourself to feel good! I can always count on Maggy London to make me look and feel amazing year-round, but especially during the holidays. In case you missed it, I featured my favorite Maggy London looks a few weeks ago. This week, I’ve added a few more dresses into the mix including some new favorites! If you are shopping the Maggy London styles, be sure to use CHRISTMASCARALYN for 25% off your order until 12/31!

As many of us are packing away our white dresses for the season, it’s actually the ideal time to buy white. Many stores are having major markdowns on these gorgeous styles that are perfect for engagement parties, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, etc! Come winter, white dresses become harder to find so I thought I’d round up a bunch of my favorites for you to shop. If you are getting married early next year, now is the time to buy. I had so much fun with my bridal style, I hope you do to! Keep scrolling to shop my picks, many are on major sale. You can click on the images below and it will take you directly to the shopping page!
SHOP ALL LITTLE WHITE DRESSES
Spring is finally here! I've been getting a bunch of requests for casual & special event dresses so I decided to do a little round up of my favorite dresses. As always, you can shop the looks by clicking on the images or links directly! Be sure to check out my IG story today for a few additional looks that are on major sale.
A few weeks ago I did a try on haul from my latest Old Navy finds! I live in these dresses all summer long. They are so easy to throw on- dress up or dress down for a perfect everyday look.
These are a few of my favorite dresses that are perfect for a daytime affair: showers, graduations, parties, etc!
Fun fact: did you know that black tie affairs don't necessarily mean you need to wear a floor length gown? A dress that hits at or just below the knee can still be formal! It really all depends on the style and fabric, in my opinion. Accessories can also really help!
All White Everything
As a bride to be, I definitely have an addition to LWD's this season but I feel like they are just such a classic look! I will definitely be re-wearing post-wedding (but definitely not to other people's weddings!)
As you may see, I've only selected a few brands here. I find myself staying loyal to brands when I find my perfect fit. When it comes to sizing, I get a bunch of questions so I thought I would let you know what I am in hopes of helping you find your fit! I love these brands because they are extremely consistent in their sizing- so I can always count on things fitting true to size.
What are you shopping for this season? Do you think any of these dresses would work for you? Leave a comment below!
Happy Friday, everybody! I seriously cannot believe we're almost through February- time is just flying by but this only means we're one month closer to warmer temps! Unless you live somewhere warm year round, if that's the case I envy you. This week on my Instagram Story, you voted that you'd like to see a spring style round up. I've decided to link some pieces that I've bought and some pieces that I'm really considering buying! This spring, I'm all about the florals (groundbreaking, I know), trying out shorts for the first time in 2006 (bermuda shorts, amirite?), and building my wardrobe with investment pieces that will carry me from season to season. As always, the images and font in bold is clickable/shoppable- so you can shop directly from this post! There are also some amazing sales happening this weekend!
What's Spring without Spring Dresses?
I like to shop pretty inexpensively when it comes to basics. They go with everything, you can wear them over and over
I love spring jackets because they can easily take you into other seasons as transitional pieces!
Other sales & deals happening this weekend!
It's been a busy week of work and travel over here, which is why I haven't been as active this week online! But that's alright, real life happens and we gotta roll with it. I wanted to round up my favorite looks that have been helping me survive this awfully cold winter we're having and some looks I'm really looking forward to wearing in the spring. I'll be showcasing a few of these items on my Instagram story today, so be sure to check that out! Not sure if you've had a chance to check out my new Highlights on my profile, but I've saved a number of my most popular stories on there. Here are a few brands that I've been loving lately and are keeping me on point (does anyone say 'on point' anymore?) throughout these winter months:

Okay, I'll admit it. My MOM told me about Boden and it's safe to say I'm OBSESSED! She wore a coat over to my house one day and I tried to steal it... They're a UK based company founded on the principle of stylish clothes that look great and never stint on quality. I typically don't splurge on items like this but I was incredibly impressed with their quality and 365 day return policy... and they've been having a serious sale, items are 40-70% off! So I just had to try them out and I've been blown away with what I got! I've ordered quite a few things and I am in love, I consider these items investment pieces- knowing that I will have them for a long time. For reference, I think they run pretty TTS (true to size) I've been ordering my usual 14 and everything has fit perfectly!
Eliza J is my GIRRRRRL! I'm not sure if she actually exists, but I am seriously in LOVE with this brand. You've seen me in their dresses quite a few times now, I cannot get enough! I also love how on trend and current they are. Another reason why I love the brand is because they are size inclusive, they are always offering styles from sizes 0 to 24! Here are a few dresses that I just got and cannot wait to wear! A few of them are on sale so swipe them up before they're gone!
I think my Bauble Bar earrings have become my signature thing. You know what's the funny part? I love to throw on a pair of fun BB earrings out of pure laziness because I'm not very good at accessorizing so it's just an easy way to pump up any look! I get asked all of the time where my earrings are from and 99.9% of the time, they're from Bauble Bar! These are a few pairs that I splurged on lately that I am loving! They're having a major sale this weekend, including an extra 15% off of sale so if you're looking for a refresh in your jewelry game, be sure to check them out!
A few weekends ago, I did a full Instagram story about my CO2 Lift mask experience. In case you missed it, I saved it as a highlight on my profile titled "CO2 Lift." They agreed to let me do a monthly review of their famous mask, which is INCREDIBLE by the way. This weekend only, they're offering $20 OFF if you use the code "CARALYN20" - which NEVER happens (it's usually only $10!) so if you've been thinking about trying it out, now is the time!
As a member of their auto-ship "Glowing Skin" program, every month you will enjoy the comfort of having your CO2Lift delivered straight to your door for just $59.95. That’s 30% off their regular price for their most devoted customers!
If that wasn’t enough, as a gift, they will send you a “starter pack” which includes an additional CO2Lift treatment and a bottle of our hyaluronic serum. That’s two CO2Lift masks and one bottle of hyaluronic serum for $95.00! ($229.95 worth of product)
Then for $59.95 per month, a single pack of CO2Lift will be delivered straight to your door.
Their single pack with one mask is usually $85.00 so at $59.95 is a real savings! But if you just want to try it, the $20.00 off would make the starter pack $75.00 for 2 masks and a hyaluronic serum!
I hope you enjoyed what I've been loving lately, would love to hear in the comments which items you're most interested in trying! Wishing you a fabulous weekend and happy shopping! Many of these sales end soon so be sure to check them out.
