Peek at My Shopping List...

Happy Friday friends!! It has been kind of quiet week here this week as work has been a little cray.  But I am taking a minute to do the weekly "Peek at My Shopping List" post...which has kind of turned into, "What Rachel has bought and loved lately" post :)... so here are pics of outfits with all the deets below them...

Tunic - Logo and Stitch | Jeans - F21, similar and similar | red converse - here | red necklace - RiffRaff -similar 
Logo and Stitch is a boutique owned by family friends (my sister Nicole's in-laws) and I have recently found big love for that little store!  They carry curvy sizes which makes me a happy camper!! I have a ton of new stuff from there that I will posting for the next couple weeks that I know y'all are going to love. They recently got in some great Umgee (that's the brand :) ) items, including this fabulous tunic!! It is super soft, comfortable and forgiving - you can size down!  They have it in all regular sizes, up to 2X.  I love it because it is so comfortable and easy to wear, but also can be dressed up or down. I plan to wear them a ton! If you want one, call the store, or comment on their instagram and tell them you want the "Umgee black (or gray) vneck tunic" and feel free to add "That Rachel / Suburban Strut wore". I got an XL.  I am begging them to start an online store!!!  The next pic is of the gray tunic...

Tunic - Logo and Stitch | Jeans - Old Navy Rockstar Skinnies | Necklace - local boutique, similar | handbag - Phillip Lim | "Play Hooky" Tote - Kate Spade - love and have one like this too | the girls' lunchboxes :) - Crystal Faye

Same tunic - different color! I just love it!!! The best outfit shot I could get that day was in the elevator after work, flying to dance to feed the girls between classes :).

Boyfriend Button Down - Simply Be | Pleather leggings - similar | booties - Target | necklace - Baublebar | handbag -  Phillip Lim | Sunnies - F21

A couple weeks ago, I posted on Instagram that I was looking through a "Simple Be" catalog and was loving their curvy items!! I placed an order and let me tell you, I loved it all so far!!! I got a couple of these boyfriend button downs and they are fabulous. I am loving that look this Fall and plan to wear them quite a bit!  They were long enough for leggings -big plus!!!  Post coming next week with some more of my favorites...

Utility vest - Old Navy | Distressed Skinnies  - Old Navy | cotton tunic - Simply Be | necklace  - F21 - similar | monogram converse - Crystal Faye | Sweet little girl - God :)

I honestly think one of the most versatile pieces you can own right now is a utility vest. It is great for chilly days, but you will not sweat in it on warm days still. They are slimming and you can wear it with ANYTHING!!  I love this one in army green too!!! Go check them on out at Old Navy - I bet I wear it once a week!!

Hope y'all have a great weekend!! Working on a cosmetics post for next week...stay tuned!!!
