Favorite outfits of August with Link up & Starbucks giftcard giveaway

September 8, 2015


Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you had a good long Labor day weekend. We hosted a sloppy joe and comfort food dinner Sunday night with our neighbors (they have two kids that play with my our kids) and we sat around til midnight talking. Then Monday was just a relax and recover from a late night and watch movies and enjoy each other.
For today’s post I thought I would do a recap of my favorite outfits in August (and believe me there were a lot) so narrowing the favorites down was a bit hard. So here we go:

Fringe tee and shorts


Pattern Mixing


Bamboo made t-shirt and shorts


Little Black Dress, kimono and suede grey ankle booties


Little Black Dress, chambray and leopard

Which outfit was your favorite? What did you like wearing in August?

Now on to a few giveaways and link up below:

    Wow, Rachel! I loved all your outfits in August. My top faves are the fringe top, the cute kimono and awesome pom-pom shorts. Thanks so much for featuring me this week! I’m deeply humbled. Also, thank you for hosting the link up weekly. Have an awesome week and be blessed!

    You indeed had a fun fab summer Rachel!


  • The Gifted Gabber September 8, 2015 at 1:18 am

    I think my favorite look for you in August was the kimono and black dress, although I am really digging the leopard flats you have in the last outfit, too. I like the idea of doing a “favorite looks” recap for the month. I may have to start doing that. Sometimes, it is just so difficult for me to get the girls and I all photographed each week. Here over the next few months, when the days start getting darker earlier, it will become even more challenging! Thanks for hosting!

  • Tiina L September 8, 2015 at 2:43 am

    My favourite is the LBD with a kimono: so sophisticated yet fun. Have a great week, Rachel!
