Brands I Love: Free People Part 2

Did you catch yesterday's Brands I Love: Free People Part 1 post? If not, you can click here to check it out. I talked about my number 1 favorite Free People top yesterday and several favorite dresses.

Today I'm sharing the rest of my Free People tops, which are my very favorite tops for fall and winter. Some of the price points are a little higher than I typically like to spend. However, items made by this brand are the best quality and will last you years and years and years!

Also, thanks to my mom and sister for taking pictures with me, and thanks to my dad for being our photographer! Sometimes I get sick of looking at pictures of me by myself over and over again, so I loved mixing things up and having them join me in a few shots! We all love Free People!

Cowl Neck Pullover- This is one of those sweaters you get your money's worth out of. It's so comfortable and a great length, so you can wear it with leggings or skinny jeans. I have my eye on this blue one and this oatmeal colored one. I shared my number 1 favorite Free People top yesterday, but this one is in my top 3 favorites!

Thermal Top- This is my newest top from Free People, and I love it! It is also in my top 3 favorites. It comes in 9 colors, and I want them all. I clearly have a thing for long tops I can wear with leggings, and this one is perfect for that. It also has thumbholes, which are always fun! I kinda bunched my sleeves up for the first picture, but you can see what they look like in the second picture! Also, they only had a large in the store, so you can see in the second picture that sizing up makes it a much slouchier fit. Some people prefer that. However, I went with the medium, and it is less slouchy but still flowy!

Button Front Blouse- I tried this top on a few weeks ago and loved it immediately. It is a classic button down shirt with a fun twist thanks to the sleeve details and cute hemline! I've had 3 people ask me to find clothing that is appropriate for work but also normal-looking for after work, and  I have to say this top is the winner! Perfect for work and play! I love versatile pieces like this one!

Plaid Tunic- I discovered this top during the big Nordstrom sale, and it sold out so quickly. I grabbed this blue one and the peach one because it is such a great plaid top with cute buttons down the sides. I saw where it came back in one size, so I linked it up. However, I'm scared it's going to be sold out again soon. If you ever see it in stock again, grab it!! This is my favorite plaid top I've ever owned.

Hooded Pullover- My mom found this top, and it is the perfect, cozy pullover. It runs really big. Size down one size. There is a lot of fabric, but we could not love it anymore!

Silk-Blend Cardigan- This cardigan was the It Cardigan last year, and we waited until it went on sale and grabbed it a couple months ago. It is still on sale!  My friend Emily and I picked it up in the pretty green color at Nordstrom Rack yesterday. More to come about that tomorrow! It is also available in select sizes and colors here and here.


I'll leave you with one final group picture, as well as the Free People top I will be buying next.. my mom's shirt! It is another 0ne of those versatile tops that is adorable for work and play!

Brands I Love: Free People Part 1

I accidentally skipped my post in the Brands I Love series for the month of September, so this month, I am giving you 2 blog posts dedicated to 1 brand I love! Free People definitely deserves more than one blog post. I can confidently say that it is my favorite brand for sweaters and fall tops.

Today I'm sharing my very favorite top by Free People and some of my favorite dresses. Tomorrow I will be back to share the rest of my Free People tops and sweaters. 

My Favorite Free People Top- If you have read my blog posts over the past couple of months, you have probably seen this top 10 times. It is called a thermal tee and is the perfect lightweight sweater material, which makes it perfect to wear in the fall and winter months down south. You can see in the photo above that it is a very versatile top and can be styled in various ways!

I have the mint and also want the beige. My mom and Ebie have the mint and beige ones. My mother in law has 2 of them. One of her best friends got one. My Tridelt house mother has one. It's such a great top y'all! I did size down to a small because Free People typically does run on the larger side. However, I think this top is supposed to have an oversized fit anyway. The length makes it the perfect top to wear with leggings or skinny jeans and boots AKA my fall uniform!

Perfectly Victorian Dress- Free People has brought this dress back several years in a row now because it does so well and sells out every year! I have it in mustard and my mom has it in blue. These exact colors are no longer available. However, I LOVE the black and pink ones that are available. The dress is so fun that all you have to do is throw on a cute pair of shoes and some simple accessories, and you've got the cutest outfit!


Embroidered Minidress- How pretty is this dress? I love the bright lilac color and the embroidery. If lilac is not your thing, it comes in 5 other colors and is one of those dresses that you will be so happy to have in your closet! So easy to throw on with a pair of booties now and a pair of leggings and boots later on (if it ever actually cools down).


Off the Shoulder Shift Dress- If I were still in college, I know I would have had this dress in red (even though it is not Alabama red) for gameday! However, now that I am out of college, I think I would get a lot more wear out of the black one. It comes in 4 colors and is so cute and fun!


Neutral Striped Dress- This was one of my favorite dresses of the summer! I love the neutral stripes, sleeves, and length. You can now get it on sale! I also got it in the other color way because I thought it was such a cute dress.


Magic Mystery Tunic- I actually got this last fall, but they brought it back again this year! It is considered a tunic, but it is basically dress length and looks adorable with leggings and boots! The fun bell sleeves are my favorite part!

Brands I Love: Lilly Pulitzer

Lilly Pulitzer is a brand that I have been wearing for years and years, so it only seemed right to add this post to my Brands I Love series. My mom started buying my sister and me Lilly shift dresses when we were young. However, at some point, maybe in middle school or high school, I started getting embarrassed to wear such vibrant patterns. I guess the opinions of other people made me second guess my love of this bright, happy brand. However, this phase didn't last long. I am a bright color lover, so it was only a matter of time before I stopped caring what others thought and decided to wear what I love! Plus, Lilly has more than just vibrant patterns. They also have solid colored clothing and tons of options for everyone! 

My mom and I are both wearing Lilly dresses in the photo above. Most of the Lilly clothing we own has been bought when it was highly discounted. They have two HUGE sales a year. These sales take place in August and January. The August one is coming soon, and I will have more information about it for you as we get closer to the sale. You do not want to miss it! Items are marked down like you wouldn't believe. 

Today, I'm going to share photos of the Lilly Pulitzer items that I own. Being from Mobile and close to the beach, I was under the impression everyone knew about Lilly. I wore a dress that was very obviously Lilly Pulitzer to school in Arkansas one day and was asked who made my dress. I couldn't believe people were unfamiliar with Lilly. So if you don't already know about Lilly, I am SO excited to share this brand with you. If you are familiar with it, I'm excited to share some of my favorite pieces with you! You can click on the blog category headings to be taken directly to the Lilly site.

Brands I Love: Jack Rogers

For my second post in the Brands I Love series, I am sharing all about Jack Rogers, my very favorite brand of shoes. Although I was a little late to the game in learning about Jack Rogers, once I discovered them, I never looked back.

All credit for my love of this brand goes to my adorable roomie I had the privilege of living with when teaching in Huntsville. Molly gifted all of her bridesmaids a pair of Jack Rogers (among other generous things). Not only did our classic gold Jacks look fab with our comfy monogrammed sleep shirts she gave us, but they also paired beautifully with the black bridesmaid dresses we wore to her wedding. BEST GIFTS EVER. Thanks again to you Molly for introducing me to such a fabulous brand!

On their website, Jack Rogers describes their products in this way- "They're the pieces that take you from an afternoon bike ride to evening cocktails and the ones you never forget to pack, wherever you're headed. A pop of color, an unexpected detail, a feeling of coming matter where you are, that's Jack Rogers."

If you have been following Art Fashion Fun, you have seen me wearing several different styles of Jack Rogers. And you also know that my number 1 favorite pair of shoes in the world is the Marbella Mid Wedge in platinum. I love them so much that I have two pairs of this exact shoe. They are a classic pair of shoes that completes so many different outfits. The color is perfect, and my other favorite part is the height. The 2.5 inch wedge heel makes them tall enough to give you a little lift, but low enough to make them a comfortable shoe to wear all day long. I actually choose to wear these over sandals that are completely flat when deciding on a shoe that I know I will be wearing all day long. I have found that the wedge gives your foot more support than a completely flat shoe.

The gold sandal Molly gave me and the Marbella Mid Wedge are just two of the many pairs of Jack Rogers that I own and love. My mom and I are always checking out their latest styles, and when they go on sale, we purchase! Like I said in my first "Brands I Love" post (click here to go to the first post in the series), when we discover a brand we love, we are loyal supporters!
