Weekly Outfit Round-Up

Hi friends! I hope everyone had a great week! This week at the Butler household we cooked a few meals at home, had a date night out, updated the house and started working on some fall content. We made steaks last Saturday night. If you have been following along, Duncan and I have been trying to perfect our cooking strategy when it comes to steaks and I think we’ve finally got a way that works great for both of us. If you’re interested, check out my food highlight for the full process.

This week I had a burst of energy and decided I wanted to start organizing our kitchen and bathroom. It’s going to be a process, but I’m so glad I started. We also ordered a new light for our bathroom. I was a little worried it wasn’t going to work, but it worked perfectly and I LOVE it so much.

This week on BTD, I shared two reels. I have so much fun making them, and in my opinion, they are entertaining to watch. I also have been working on something behind the scenes that I CANNOT wait to share. I’ve been working on it since 2018!?! It’s almost time to share with all of you and I’ve been doing a lot of prep work behind the scenes to make sure everything is ready.

Outfit Round Up

Black Mini Dress & Moto Jacket

This week I created a reel with four Target dresses that work now AND can transition into fall. I love this dress (I have it in pink and black), so I had to style it for fall. It’s an easy dress to wear as is, or you can add a Moto jacket and booties for colder months.

Black Mini Dress (size xs) // Moto Jacket (old, but linked similar) // Booties (fit true to size)

Tiered Dress & Chunky Cardigan

This is the second dress I shared from the Target reel. This dress has such a pretty color – between a maroon and brown. I paired it with a chunky cardigan and booties for fall. It can also be worn with some sandals and cute jewelry for the last few months of summer.

Floral Midi Dress & Sandals

This is a fun dress all on its own. The floral detail and length make it the perfect dress to wear to brunch, on a date night, or add some sneakers for a day full of errands. And the price is hard to beat – under $30!

Dress (size xs) // Sandals (fit true to size)

Madewell Black Midi Dress

Black midi dresses are my go-to right now (I wore two this week). They are flattering and easy to pull on without having to really think about how to style it. I love pairing them with a brown sandal, but you could easily wear a pair of fun sneakers with them.

Dress (size 0) // Sandals (fits true to size)

Pink Reformation Dress

How cute is this dress!? I love the pink color and neckline. Its very feminine, which I love. It’s more of an investment piece. And I plan on wearing it throughout the year. It would be cute for a valentines day dinner in February.

Dress (size 0) // White Heels (fit true to size)

Align Leggings, Longline Bra Top & Ball Cap

I’ve been sharing Lululemon a lot lately. But, thats because I wear it all the time. It’s so comfortable and the quality is SO good. This week I wore these align leggings and bra top. I have so many align leggings (because I wear them ALL the time), and this pattern is a recent favorite. This top is also flattering and stays in place. I ordered a 4 (my regular size), but will be ordering a size up next time for a less snug fit.

Align Leggings (size 4) // Top (size 4 – size up)

White Puff Sleeve Top & Jeans

I ordered this top a few weeks ago and could not wait for it to come in. What’s not to love? The bow-tie back, the sheer puff sleeves, and square neckline are all so pretty and work really well together. It’s a top that you could wear to a lunch, Friday night party or date night. And it comes in 3 colors.

Puff sleeve top (size xs)

Sunflower Quilted Dress

This is a unique dress. I love the quilted texture and floral pattern. It feels like you’re wearing a light sweatshirt, but its so much cuter than a sweat outfit.

the Outfit Guide
Sunflower dress (size 0)

Lightspun Mini Dress

This is a great transitional dress from Madewell. Its easy to pair with sandals or booties. And the long-sleeves will keep you warm throughout fall, but the dress itself is lightweight enough to wear now.

the Outfit Guide
Light Spun Collette dress (size 0) // Booties (fit true to size)

Black J.Crew Midi Dress

My second black midi dress of the week :). What do I love about this dress? The pockets, the a-line silhouette and the statement buttons.

Collared camp-pocket shirtdress (size 0)
