My Latest Business Adventure

Hello! So, you all know how much I LOVE clothes and accessories really are the finishing touch to ANY look – casual or fancy. I hear lots of women say, “but I wouldn’t know what to wear that with.” Here’s the thing, the only way to get comfortable with wearing accessories is by just going for it and trying new things out. Amazing outfits don’t always come out of the first look you put on, it takes throwing on pieces in your closet that might go together and finding great looks out of what you weren’t sure of. Well, sometimes the amazing outfits will come from the first look you put together but not always πŸ˜‰ I recently started as a Stylist for Stella & Dot. Have you heard of them? If you haven’t, you need to stop what you’re doing and follow this link now! http://www.stelladot.com/caitlyndavis I want to share some of my favorite pieces and different ways I have styled them.

First, the Rebel Pendant (comes in silver, gold and rose gold) is an easy piece to throw on with anything. Often, I will put on the Rebel over jean shorts and a white T-shirt. It just adds a cute element to what was a plain outfit. So easy for the moms out there looking for something quick.

Next, the Chiara. OMG, at first I was not crazy about this necklace, but after layering it over a denim shirt – forget about it. I am obsessed with this piece. It is so great for girls night, date night, work or just wearing it because it’s super cute.

The Freya Fringe, is probably my ultimate favorite piece. It can be worn several different ways but my favorite are short and long. This piece is so versatile. I took this to New York and basically wore it the entire time even though I brought several pieces with me. This may seem a little intimidating to some but TRUST me, this will really add some sparkle to your wardrobe and you won’t believe all the compliments you will receive.

There’s so many more amazing pieces from Stella & Dot! Check out their website and let me know what you think πŸ˜‰ http://www.stelladot.com/caitlyndavis

OOTD Roundup

Wow, It has been a while and a lot has happened since my last post. I turned 30!! OMG! 30 is not scary but it does make me feel like an old broad. I mean, do I need to start wearing loafers and khakis? Not this girl – eek! (no offense if khakis and loafers are your outfit of choice) I am excited and ready to embrace my thirties. πŸ™‚

My 30th birthday was a week long celebration with a trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium with the kids, lunch with work friends, pizza party with our families and a night out with friends. πŸ™‚

IMG_1325
Here’s a roundup of pictures from my 30th Birthday Party at Mikunis πŸ™‚ I am crazy for sushi! Yes, guys were there too but it is so much more fun to take pictures with the ladies!

My sisters and a full body shot of my look for the night.Β 

Oh this dress! It is ASTR and amazing. I love the blue and black together. Does this make anyone else happy? I think people used to say that black and blue do not go together but I think they compliment each other well. I wore a sparkly black blazer over the dress but didn’t get a clear picture! UGH! This outfit deserves a photo shoot it was soooo good.

Now, to my recent looks. I post my outfits daily on Instagram (@omgandmore), this is a great way to see what I wear everyday (outfit of the day, #ootd). Does that sound like I think I am cool because I don’t actually think I am cool but If you like my blog then you may like my Instagram too. πŸ˜‰

This TOPSHOP trench was a gift from my hubby. I love the color, it’s a nice spin on a classic.

Found these ripped jeans at Nordstrom Rack for $18!!! Best. Day. Ever. Oh and the Adidas… OMG!! These are a real throwback to the 90’s and I am obsessed.

The waitress look – the bowtie, the vest, the velvet shorts and tights… in love!

I HAD A DREAM…. ABOUT OVER THE KNEE BOOTS

Yes, I realize it’s a little late in the season to bring up the over the knee boot. I just can’t get these out of my mind. People are posting pics on Instagram everywhere wearing these. To me, I always thought this style boot was a little on the skanky side (for lack of a better word. I just tried to put a Kimoji pic in and it won’t let me… Ugh!) but lately I am really into it. Although, there is a fine line between skank and adorable. The heel length and the outfit choice are the deciding factors in this matter. A flat to mid high heel (2-3″) is much more acceptable than a stiletto. Also, if you decide to wear these with a mini skirt please be prepared to be whistled at.

Β 

These Steve Madden boots seem to be popular with the heel and tie in the back but i honestly hate them.

Steve Madden

 

These are just okay. They are a good option for a more casual look. They would be cute with skinny jeans and a long shirt or a sweater and sparkly necklace for a dressier option.

 

Vince Camuto

These are a thigh high boot and I am obsessed! I just ordered them and I hope they are as amazing in person as online.Β 

 

The Seychelles (a brand I have never tried, on the pricey side) are just perfection. The color is amazing, they can go with dark or lighter colors and can easily be dressed up or down by the change of a shirt.I love the heel height (2 1/4). Although, perfect looking online, these will definitely need to be tried on. With the thigh high boot I am hoping to not look like a hooker. I think worn with the right outfit, skinny pants/jeans, a skirt or dress with tights will look adorable.

These Calvin Klein knee high boots are a great option too and they are at a nicer price point then the Seychelles.

I really like the heel height and the toe shape on the Calvin Klein boots. I feel like other people really like the laced up ones but I am not into them.

I know this is a random one but I hope you enjoyed the post πŸ™‚ .

Thanks for reading,

BLACK FRIDAY

Oh the sales! For my family, it is a tradition to fight the crowds on Black Friday. I am sure lots of people think we are crazy. Thursday night, my sisters and I went to Target and Kohls. I came straight from Thanksgiving dinner so I was dressed a little fancy for shopping.

I look exhausted in this picture. It was only about 8… Look, I am trying to work on being more photogenic. These things take time! πŸ™‚

These are my first true high-rise jeans and I don’t think I will every buy a different rise now. Yes, they go up to my belly button and no it doesn’t bother me. I felt weird for about a day wearing them but I am in love now. If you haven’t tried a high-rise, you need to. They just fit so amazing and make me feel more confident with my body. The ASTR deep v-neck shirt was an item I picked up on sale right before the Black Friday sale at Nordstrom (Of course it is no longer available, sorry! On Black Friday it was marked down an extra 20%) along with the adorable booties. OMG these booties. I am in love, they are the perfect color (they also come in several other amazing colors) and I am crazy for the laced-up style. The outfit is a little random but I think it came together nicely. The flannel under the dressy shirt was something fun I wanted to try. I like the idea of mixing fancy with causal, it makes things interesting. Fashion is about taking risks right?

Thanks for reading,

Jeans

Flannel

Booties

P.S. I like to add items to my Wishlist on Nordstrom.com and then wait till they go on sale to purchase πŸ™‚ You would be surprised by how many things go on sale at Nordstrom.

 

Virginia

Richmond, Virginia was the last leg of our trip. Our wonderful friends, Mike and Mona, hosted us at their super cool loft (thanks again, friends πŸ™‚ ). Our first thought once in Virginia was, “OMG it’s humid!” Β It went from no rain to downpour in the matter of minutes. Once the rain stopped, we were still wet from the humidity. Minus the humidity, we had a great time with awesome friends!

We arrived around lunch time and once settled in, we set out for lunch and shopping (best day ever). Check out the AMAZING faux fur vests I picked up πŸ™‚ Β because everyone needs 2 right. Β They serve different purposes… The pleather pants are just fun. Although, I wore them the other night and they were not quite as comfortable as I thought they would be (I could barely keep them up over my butt and it was a little hard to sit, TMI?) but they are still super cute and fun. The things girls do to look cute…

Notice the crazy cool necklace? I got the vest and pleather pants from a place called Traveling Chic BoutiqueΒ (check out the page, it’s a real cool place). The girls working were hilarious, they kept talking to a mannequin that they were trying to dress and saying all kinds of funny mean comments about the body, I peaked my head from the dressing room and said, ” you’re not talking about me right?” We all starting laughing, maybe you had to be there? The vest and necklace on the right are from Fab’rik. Β Ryan thinks the necklace is awful, but I LOVE it! I say, the uglier the better πŸ™‚ . It’s actually really cool. The people working at Fab’rik said while in Richmond, we needed to eat as much as possible because the food is amazing. So we did.

IMG_5322

IMG_5323

We had to try some southern BBQ. We ate at Buzz and Ned’s. I loved my wings, Ryan thought his ribs could have been better.

IMG_5311

Um, in Richmond, they have a 24 hour fresh cookie delivery service, AMAZING!

IMG_5331

We ended our trip with a super fun and cute boat ride. We were the only 4 people on the boat so the driver spent a little extra time letting us look for turtles, if you know me, you know how I feel about turtles πŸ™‚ .

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed reading about our trip,

Highlights from our trip:

Big Bus tour in NYC, Book of Mormon, visiting with friends and of course shopping! Oh and of course coming home to our sweet girls πŸ™‚ .

DAY 5

DAY 5

Our second day in DC was a lot of fun. One of my good friends moved to DC a few years ago and we were able to meet up with her and her husband for lunch AND dinner πŸ™‚ .We started the day with an awesome lunch at a local spot then toured the American History Museum and the Air and Space Museum (which was amazing!).

IMG_5294

The day felt like a hat day to me. No, I don’t care about the NY team but I do care about how adorable the hat is. #sorrynotsorry I was all about comfort. The picture above is of my good friend Monica and I πŸ™‚ .

IMG_5296

(I am wearing a v-neck from Nordstrom Rack that I got for $10, Hudson jean shorts, NY hat from a city tourist store and UGG shoes πŸ™‚ )

After the museums, I was beat (let’s be honest, I spent more time in the gift shops than in the museums). We had a fun dinner in Georgetown which was super cute and I wish we could have spent more time in the town. I was really hoping to do some shopping but the stores were closing early and I felt guilty dragging our friends around (maybe not that guilty πŸ™‚ ). After dinner, we set out to Richmond. We found a random, cheap hotel on Groupon for the night because our friends in Richmond were getting back late that night from Europe and we didn’t want them to have to entertain us. The hotel was, um… a little sketchy…. but it worked out fine. Although, Ryan forgot a bag of alcohol and wine for our friends! So lame!

IMG_5300

Saw this gem in a local liquor store and I couldn’t resist taking a picture!

Only 2 more days left on our trip to share!

EAST COAST DAY 2

DAY 2 of 6!

We all woke up well rested and excited for our second day in the city. It was about an hour train ride into the city from our friends house, where we were staying. Here’s a pic of Sandra and I at Madison’s adorable train station. Of course with our morning coffees πŸ™‚ .

IMG_5224

First stop, Grand Central Station. WOW! The station is beautiful! We took lots of pictures but nothing seemed to turn out awesome.. must have been the cameras fault right? Anyway, here is the only decent full body shot of my outfit for the day. I am crazy for this suede skirt because it goes with so much! I like to wear it with a longer shirt over or a tucked flannel. The shirt is so comfy and can be dressed up (sort of) or dressed down with jeans so easy. It comes with those hanging straps on the inside (which drive me nuts) and I plan to snip those out ASAP! The booties were a cute choice with this outfit but not a cute choice for walking around New York City. My feet were okay but they would have been a lot better in some Nike’s. But we were in the city, I had to dress up right?

0925151211

After touring the station for a little while, we tried out Dunkin’ Donuts. EVERYBODY says, “you must try Dunkin’ Donuts.” Look, this might offend some people but WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL? I think the coffee was alright nothing special (#sorrynotsorry). After drinking our mediocre coffee, we took a taxi to the Rockefeller building.

IMG_5235

(Here’s Ryan calling for a taxi. OMG, he isΒ we are such dorks)

While waiting for our “appointment” time to take the elevator ride up to the top of Rockefeller, I did some shopping at TOPSHOP πŸ™‚ .

Here is what I got:

IMG_5345

The yellow flannel has been on my radar for a while so I knew this was going to be a purchase. The lace-up flats have been all over Instagram lately and I have been drooling! I am so happy to now have a pair! I was between the these and the same ones but with tassels. Sandra and I decided the tassels were too intense. The NY (not from TOPSHOP) hat is just cute (sorry NY, I am only concerned about the cuteness factor. At least I am honest?).

The elevator ride up to the top of Rockefeller was 90 seconds of torture. I get motion sickness and they had a crazy strobe light show on the ceiling while we rode up (I was so happy when it stopped!). The views were amazing but I was happy to be back on the ground floor πŸ™‚ .

SDC12038

We ate a late breakfast so we skipped lunch, terrible decision (some of us may have been hangry (hungry+angry=hangry), or maybe that was just me?). We went and wandered through the MET. AMAZING is all I can say. You could spend an entire day just looking at things in the MET. We left after a couple hours in need of dinner.

SDC12046

(I should be embarrassed by this but for some reason I am not)

SDC12051

Reichenbach Hall is where we ended up for dinner. It was a great atmoshphere with delicious chicken wings πŸ™‚ . The beer was pretty good too! After dinner, we checked out the Barcade (video game bar). The dudes had a great time, Sandra and I were exhausted.

Lastly, on our way back to the train station, I saw a Psychic sign. YES! This is not really for everyone but I think it is fun to see what they will say. The woman read my palm for a few seconds (while her dog barked and her kids yelled in the other room) then had some serious predictions. She said: If I am not careful, I will be pregnant with a boy in 7 months (um, no thanks! This mama is done πŸ™‚ ), I will be signing important papers in the next few months, we will be buying a different house in 2 years and I may be changing jobs. She also answered a few random questions of mine. It was a lot of fun, I may or may not have been intoxicated while my reading but I had a blast.

I hope you enjoyed reading about our day 2 in NYC, there are 4 more days to come!

BOOTIESLICIOUS (THAT’S A WORD RIGHT?)

Oh September, you sure snuck up on me! Although, it is still smoking hot outside and I cannot even think about wearing jeans or socks with shoes (I am sweating thinking about it), I have been peeping out some AMAZEBALL booties for the Fall.

At the beginning of summer, my Husband got some Chukkas and they are adorable, in a cool-dude kind of way. I never thought about myself in a pair of booties like these but when in Rome. I am kind of crazy for these blue ones. They are different from anything I have own and I think that is why I like them so much. Who wears blue shoes? This girl! They come in several other colors too, the bordeaux is a great option too πŸ™‚ .

_10962197

Bussola ‘Salem’ Chukka bootie – I just love! They would be adorable with skinny jeans, or boyfriend jeans rolled at the bottom.
_10859055

These Nine West ‘Just This’ ankle bootie is so cute and fun! They really “edge” things up! I like that they are not over the top moto.

_9816585

These booties areΒ Franco Sarto and would be adorable with jeans, skinny or not, also great with tights and skirts/dresses πŸ™‚ . They can really be dressed up too, which is nice for a work to night out option.

_11120983

These Franco Sarto booties are so different and I would love to see them on with tights, a skirt and sweater. Oh, I can’t wait for cold weather πŸ™‚ .

I am slightly obsessed with Franco Sarto and Vince Camuto shoes right now πŸ˜‰ . All these booties run between $100-$150. They are great shoes that will last through more than one season πŸ™‚ .

#OOTD

IMG_4693

 

(The little feet in the picture are my youngest, Madison’s. It is not easy to get a picture without these kids sneaking in πŸ™‚ )

Today’s look. These green Rag and Bone jeans have become one of my FAVORITES. (I picked them up at the Anniversary Sale at a much better price!) At first, I was thinking, “what does someone wear with green pants?” Once I got home, I was like, “what can’t you wear with green pants?” The possibilities are endless πŸ™‚ . It’s all about trying new options and putting pieces together to see how they will look. You may surprise yourself! Next, this Halogen shirt (is $25 and comes in several different colors, I also got this piece at the Anniversary Sale for only $15) is an awesome basic. I am CRAZY for a white t-shirt, they are so easy to put on with jeans, a skirt/shorts or GREEN PANTS πŸ˜‰ . The leopard BP flats are always a great choice. They are not the most supportive shoes and mine have gotten a little stinky (TMI?) but they are super fun and reasonably priced. Last, the necklace is a hand-me-down piece from my wonderful sister-in-law (thanks, Jamie!). It is from Anthropologie but not sure how long ago.

A GIRL CAN DREAM

Lately, I have been drooling over some must-have items (in my opinion). Why is everyone wearing these TOPSHOP lace-up flats? Now, I want them!! By everyone, I mean people sponsored on Instagram… but still.. I can’t get them out of my head. They are called Kingdom Ghillie Pointed Shoes and they are adorable. They would be great with a dress, shorts/skirt or even jeans. They are different and I think that is what I am most attracted to, they also fill my wannabe ballerina I guess. I need to try these NOW! Why can’t it be my birthday again (without turning a year older of course πŸ™‚ ). These flats come in a few different styles. Nordstrom does not sell this specific TOPSHOP flat so they would be an online order.. unless you are fortunate enough to live by a TOPSHOP!

deals-steals-aquazurra-flats

Next, I am still dreaming about getting a key. The Giving KeysΒ have been in my dreams for a while now. I have not gone for one yet because I can’t decide which one I want! Now, of course, the one I think I like the most is over $100… why can’t I settle for lacing up a old house key I find? It’s just not the same πŸ˜‰ . Each key has a word engraved in it. This one says “fearless.” I think I would feel like a bad ass wearing it, right? With the word “fearless” I think I would be tougher. Of course there is always the ring option which I have only found online and I feel like a ring really needs to be tried on for size (I don’t have the skinniest fingers). Can I have both?

Free People recently came out with some ADORABLE items! This sweater is SO cute and comfy! It would be great with some skinny dark or colored jeans and a long necklace. I think little booties would be best but tall boots would be okay too, any color. This sweater is so neutral yet special. (yes I just called a piece of clothing special, OMG) SHOPPING SECRET: I like to put items I like (usually on Nordstrom.com) in my wish list then I wait until they go on sale to purchase πŸ˜‰ . Not all the items go on sale but most of my wish list items usually do at some point. I check my wish list often to see if one of my favorites is on sale yet. Free People is kind of expensive and it does go on sale so keep you eye out!
