Friday Faves – Best Shows On Netflix + Fall Fashion Under $100

I don’t know what we all did before Netflix. Actually, I do, we probably got lots more done. There’s just something so nice about crawling into bed after a long day of work, opening my laptop and watching some of the best shows on Netflix with Chris (my husband). I wanted to share a few of our faves today and would also love you to share yours, I am always looking for the best Netflix shows to watch.

So, our number one Netflix show at the moment is definitely Schitts Creek. Have you seen it? Seriously, OMG. Hilarious. I got my mom onto watching it too and showed her how to get Netlifx on her tv, she called and told me she couldn’t stop watching them (and it wasn’t just because she didn’t know how to turn it off). It’s hands down probably one of my favorite shows of all time. The characters are so accurate – it’s just what I envisage a few Beverly Hills trust fund kids to be like… and their parents. Yes. Who’s seen it? I am dying to talk about it, so leave a comment and let’s chat. Who’s your favorite character? I love David, he is just too good!

Best shows on netflix to watch schitts creek review

My all time favorite and arguably the best show on Netflix is Schitts Creek. Seriously, do yourself a favor and watch it! Hilarious.

 

My other fave is an oldie but a goodie, The Mindy Project. This will always have a special place in my heart, I love Mindy! Right or wrong, I find her inner dialogue somewhat scarily similar to my thoughts sometimes. She’s amazing and so relatable. Who’s watched The Mindy Project? Thoughts?

I still need to watch Lady Gaga’s ‘Five Foot Two’ Netflix Documentary. I saw some talk about it on E! News, she seems to get pretty real and candid. Have you seen this yet? What did you think?

Oh and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Poor sweet little Kimmy, I love her innocence and Titus with his ‘Lemonade-ing’ scene will always be one of my favorites. Who’s a Kimmy Schmidt fan?

I’d love to hear what shows you love, I need some new ones to move onto when I’m finished watching these. I always find it so sad when you get to the last episode… like, what do I do with my life now? When you binge watch a show, does anyone else find you get super invested in it too?

If you haven’t seen Schitts Creek, guys seriously do yourself a favor. Even my husband Chris loves it, so it’s not just for us girls. He’ll say to me at night, can we watch an episode of Schitts Creek before bed?  Umm, YES. Yes we can.

So after I’ve watched my nightly Netflix episode before bed, I usually sneak a little peak at my favorite shops online. We all have our rituals, right? There’s some of the cutest new season style in at the moment, I love fall fashion! These are some of my fave finds this week…

Style Sessions – 3 Wardrobe Basics Every Stylish Girl Needs

I love style that encompasses that unique vibe of classic and eternally chic, but still totally on-trend. I’m breaking down the 3 wardrobe basics every stylish girl needs…

3 Wardrobe Basics Every Stylish Girl Needs

It goes without saying a great pair of skinny jeans in a mid-blue denim tone are a must! What sets apart average jeans from those that are lust-worthy is the cut and way they hug your body. Over the years I think I would have tried on hundreds of pairs of jeans in my never-ending quest for the perfect pair. The day I finally found my go-to blue denim jeans, I think I squealed with delight in the fitting room. My all time favorite jeans are these Paige Transcend Verdugo Ankle Skinny Jeans and with over 175 five-star reviews, clearly I’m not the only one who thinks these are the best jeans ever.

Second on the wardrobe basics list is a white linen t-shirt. It channels all the right effortlessly chic cool girl vibes! A perfect pairing for jeans, skirts and shorts, it’s guaranteed to be the one piece you’ll thank your lucky fashion stars you found. The one I have is currently on sale for just $17 and also comes in black and grey, it’s literally the best.

Last but certainly not least, is a grey sweater. I must admit, I have a penchant for 100% cashmere sweaters. They are completely worth the investment and aside from being divinely soft, they’ll keep you warmer than any other fabric. Whether I’m braving a New York winter or a far more mild SoCal fall evening, cashmere is so versatile and regulated your body temperature almost magically. You don’t have to pay a fortune for cashmere either, every season I stock up on new cashmere from Nordstrom Rack and Century 21.

Do we have any of the same wardrobe basics? Otherwise, tell me – what is one piece that makes your style essentials list? These are mine…

In case you’re new here, Style Sessions is live every Tuesday. It’s all about sharing what we’ve been wearing, or if you’re on a budget, a virtual outfit you’d love to wear! Every week I also select someone to showcase as ‘Head Stylist’ in the next edition – it’s a perfect way to meet new bloggers, showcase your personal style and your blog.

Friday Faves – Nordstrom’s Top Rated Fashion Under $100

These are the best of the best! I’ve found Nordstrom’s top rated fashion under $100. I always look at reviews when I shop for things online, do you do the same? I like seeing what other people have bought, tried and loved! One of my favorite stores is Nordstrom because they just have really cute fashion to suit my budget, whether I’m going through a saving or splurging phase (and side note, this is not a sponsored post at all, I just always find myself shopping there).

I’ve found myself really attracted to all the classic, but super on-trend neutral tones lately – they’re just so flattering on everyone. So I wanted to find the highest top rated fashion under $100 and these are all perfection. Many have hundreds of five-star reviews – and even one with 982 five-star ratings!

I hope you enjoy browsing Nordstrom’s top rated fashion under $100, I own quite a few of these and can personally attest to their brilliance. Do you have any of these? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Or if you have a fashion piece you are obsessed with, please share it in the comments below! Let’s all share with each other the best finds out there (that won’t break the bank).

Happy weekend, friends!

Style Sessions – The One Pair of Shoes You Can Wear With Anything

If a shoe-napper came along and took every pair of shoes you own, girl you better hope these aren’t part of the heist. I am obsessed with nude heels because they are the one pair of shoes you can wear with anything.

Surely I’m not alone in my love of neutral nude heels? Do you own a pair of these beauties? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to race out the door and thank my lucky fashion stars that I have these. No matter the outfit, these are the only pair of shoes I own that work with every outfit. Whether it’s jeans, pretty dresses or even tailored shorts, a day event or something more glammed up at night… these are it.

I’d love to know… do you feel the same way? If you don’t have a pair yet or you’ve worn your current heels to death, I’m also sharing the best nude heels under $120, so you’ll look gorgeous without breaking the bank.

My favorite pair are these Steve Madden Daisie Pointy-Toe Pumps, they’re just $89 and have over 40 five-star reviews! I also love these neutral sandals, Vince Camuto Corlina Ankle Strap Sandals, they’re only $99 and have almost 300 five-star reviews.

Style Sessions: 3 Leather Outfit Ideas You Need To Try

I love fall and each year I look forward to bringing my favorite fall fashion out of summer hibernation. I believe in investing money on quality items that are classic and never go out of style. Leather is absolutely one of my fashion must-haves, so I wanted to share 3 leather outfit ideas you need to try. These are based on leather pants, a leather jacket and a leather skirt. The beauty of these pieces is they instantly elevate your basics, such as a simple linen tee, sweater or button down shirt.

I’ve done the hard work for you and found the most stylish leather pants, leather jackets and leather skirts to suit every girl.

Tell me friends, do you love leather too? What leather pieces do you have in your wardrobe? I’d love to chat with you and hear your thoughts!

Friday Faves: Best Sales to Shop Online This Weekend

I am obsessed with online shopping from the comfort of my lounge room (or bed), in my comfy pajamas. Who wants to traipse around for hours trying to find something in particular, when you can pour a glass of wine, put on some reality tv and click to your hearts content. Not sure what you’re up to this weekend, but it’s safe to say mine will definitely involve this.

So I wanted to share the best sales to shop online this weekend, including a major Shopbop sale that ends at midnight tonight. This is the shopping event I wait for every quarter. They have 20% off all orders under $500 and 25% off on orders of $500 or more… but only until midnight PT on Friday 29th September (that’s tonight guys, so hurry!).

For my fellow designer handbag fans, you can even get my Chanel 2.55 Classic Flap handbag on sale… and that is like finding a unicorn. I absolutely love mine, it’s a beautiful piece to have and as I told my husband, they’re actually a great investment because Chanel handbags never lose their value as the company always puts up prices each year.

I hope you all enjoy a gorgeous weekend and squeeze in some time for the best sales to shop online…

Style Sessions – Pretty Fuchsia Tops and Stripes Every Girl Needs

I love a bright pop of color and firmly believe fuchsia tops are a must-have for every girl. This gorgeous color is perfect year-round and instantly elevates the most simple outfits. Take a pair of your favorite jeans, pop on a bright pink fuchsia top and finish with a cute pair of ballet flats. This combo is always chic, on-trend and will make you look beautifully put together.

These are a few of my favorite bright outfits with a pop of bright pink… which one do you like best? I’m also sharing the best fuchsia tops with you below, they’re the perfect wardrobe addition and with many on sale, they will give you a wardrobe update with out breaking the bank.

Friday Faves: Currently Covet – Alinda Over The Knee Boots + More

How fabulous are these Alinda Over The Knee Boots! Ooooh! They’re super gorgeous, come in a lot of colors and best of all, totally budget friendly. They look like dupes for far more expensive designer options like Stuart Weitzman OTK boots.

I’m also in love with this Veda Max Classic Leather Jacket, it’s a feminine cut that looks equally fabulous with jeans and dresses. I have a very similar Vince leather jacket just like this one and have worn it year after year – it never goes out of style! Unlike other leather jackets it doesn’t have a really stiff boxy shape, so it flatters your body beautifully and looks amazing with dresses.

I hope you enjoy checking out my currently covet list, what do you think of my picks? Which is your fave? I hope you all enjoy a beautiful weekend and thank you so much for being here and part of Style Elixir. It truly means so much to me!
