{red dress boutique try-on haul | January}

It's no secret that I not only love to shop but I also LOVE a good sale find! That's one reason I'm always shopping on Amazon ;) the prices are to die for! But I also love online boutiques... you know, the ones that have new arrivals daily, limited amounts, and the cutest/most unique pieces? Enter Red Dress Boutique. I have been shopping from them for years (since the Lesley Murphy days on the Bachelor) and only recently discovered how amazing their sale section is. Almost every piece I purchased recently was under $30 and marked down to 50% off! I had some store credit from returning pieces past the window deadline and fell in love with a dress in an email blast so I decided it was time to grab a couple of new things for 2020!

Everything I purchased is in a size Small and I'm 5'-6" for height reference. I'm also normally a 2-4 and small but if something runs big I can fit into an XS.



Feel free to email me or DM me (@jennrog on IG) if you have any questions or need help picking a size!

{maximizing your wardrobe}

One of my favorite things to do is mix and match my wardrobe. If you can't wear something more than one way then it's not worth purchasing... I think that goes without saying haha. I leave for Thanksgiving with Kyle's family in OBX next week and have already been plotting about what to pack. It's been gorgeous here in Key West (low 70s) so I can wear a light sweater but I'm anticipating layers and booties which is making me feel very festive! Packing has always been hard for me (things everyone says) because I want to bring everything with me but keeping a suitcase under 50 lbs is torture. So I thought it would be fun to share a couple of wardrobe staples and style them with some new Loft pieces I ordered - styling them in multiple ways!


I don't want you to view this blog post as "buy this" or "you need this" - instead, I want you to view it as an inspiration. I wanted to show how adding a poncho or changing your shoes can create a new outfit and dress it up or down!


All it takes is 8 pieces to create 15 looks:




Some basics... black pants, blue jeans, white sweater, and a black shirt! Plus two pairs of shoes



Some fun tops... maroon blouse and grey layered top!



Then top it all off with some cute ponchos... one grey and one olive green!








Adding a poncho on top or switching out your shoes is one of the easiest ways to transform an outfit! The best trick in the book ;) you can wear the same shoes and pants and nobody will know hehe. Plus, this is a great way to add some warmth if you aren't a lover of big scarves (that can sometimes get in the way of eating). It's also amazing to me that changing out of blue jeans and putting on black pants can elevate your look in a snap. I only wore two pairs of shoes for these outfits but adding heels to any of these outfits can work. Nude, leopard, black, OTK boots!

Which outfit is your favorite? I hope this was helpful and gave you some ideas to shop your closet a bit this holiday season :)

Love Always,

{6 amazon sweaters for fall}

I shared a quick try-on haul via IG stories today and it made my heart so happy that y'all loved my picks as much as I do! I also asked for everyone's opinions on how to share content like this and got a resounding YES to keeping the try-ons via stories. However, a lot of y'all had a good point that you wanted to have a place where you could go back and search for them on your computer too... SO I will keep doing Instagram try-ons but will upload all of the photos to a post here (along with uploading them all to liketoknow.it/jennrog) so that you can find something easily! They are saved in my IG highlights too - I know everyone loves options.

6 Sweaters from Amazon to wear this Fall


Everything is linked below under the individual photos!


$27 - comes in 7 other colors


$26 comes in 5 other colors


$26 comes in 4 other color combinations


$28 comes in 7 other colors


$29 comes in grey and black too


$23 comes in one other colorway

Hope everyone is enjoying the cooler weather or bundling up and staying warm! I always say that it's possible to dress cute even if it's cold and these sweaters prove that :)

Love Always,

{birdie's leopard flats}


I wasn't lying when I said that I wanted a second pair of Birdie's shoes! The quilting on the bottom of the shoe is so comfortable it feels like a cloud. I also have a weakness for calf hair leopard in the fall... it's the best neutral in my opinion.



When the weather gets cooler this is always an easy, go-to look for running errands, grabbing dinner with a friend, or running errands. A classic pair of dark wash jeans with a big sweater and loafers - perfection! It finally hit low 70's in Key West this week and I knew this sweater would work well because it's lightweight and loose. The cut out shoulder detail is so cute and I love that it shows off some skin - makes up for the oversized look! It's a great price point from Amazon too. Since all of my sweaters are in storage I realized I was going to have nothing to wear when I went to OBX for Thanksgiving and Baltimore for Christmas! Amazon to the rescue! I didn't want simple sweaters - I ordered things that had fun colors or patterns and different cuts! I'm excited to share some more this season. I'm really looking forward to spending some time with family and being up East!

Love Always,
