6 Affordable Cardigans You NEED for Fall 2018

Popular Style Blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares Affordable Cardigans You Need for Fall 2018

Hey, hi, hello there! Long time no blog post, eh? Well, in my mind, going a week without a post is a LONG TIME. Providing a life update at the end of this post but first, fashion 😋

September is officially Fall in my mind, which means I no longer have to be as ashamed to wear sweaters in 70 degree weather (lol). But in reality, we are experiencing some amazing Fall temps right now in MN. And, although it may still be warm where you are, those chillier days are right around the corner! So, it feels like the perfect time to do an affordable cardigan roundup!

Cardigans are the bread and butter of my Fall & Winter wardrobe. They can easily dress up or down an outfit and are the perfect layering piece. Plus, if you have few neutral go-to cardi’s, you have endless outfit combinations! I’ve picked my top cardigans you NEED for Fall all under $80!

The Cozy Cardi : BY FAR, the #1 loved cardi on the blog right now. And, I’ve only shared it once on Instagram. It’s just that good! This cozy cardi looks just like Free People but is actually from one of my fave online boutiques – ChicWish. They have tons of great fall staples at affordable prices. And, I’m continually impressed by their quality! I may have included another one of their cardi’s below because they’re staples in my closet! I’m wearing XS/S here – definitely an oversized fit!

The Transition Season Cardi: I’ve shared this cardigan from Nordstrom numerous times, including in this blog post. I love it so much I have it in two colors! It comes in regular and petite sizes, and I got my true size (SP). It’s the perfect weight for transition season (Summer to Fall; Winter to Spring) and is one that can easily be worn throughout the year!

Cardigan | Top | Denim (sold out – similar) | Boots | Bag | Lipstick in shade “Ashton”

The Perfect Layering Cardi: This cardi has been a go-to of mine for the last two years. I purchased it in black and green last year, and this burnt orange color this year. It’s very affordable, coming in at $49 and comes in a ton of colors. Because this cardi is on the lighter side, I like to layer it over long sleeves, like I did with this chambray shirt. I would suggest sizing down one – wearing XXS here for reference.

The Chic Cardi: Say hello to the cardi of my dreams 😍. This cardi had been on my wish list all last year so I jumped at the opportunity to pick it up in this gorgeous burnt orange color. It also comes in black, grey and pink. Another gem from ChicWish, this one is perfectly oversized and perfect to dress up or down! I’m wearing a XS here and would say it fits TTS.

The Staple Cardi: I always need one boyfriend cardi in my closet. Why? Because it is the casual layering piece to have since the style goes with everything. This one is perfect to wear to work (calling all teachers!) and wear on the weekend. I call that a win-win! Wearing XS here for reference.

The Second Cozy Cardi: Because you can never have too many cozy things, right?! This one is super soft, and I’m not lying when I say I’ve slept in it – lol! It’s going in and out of stock in the white color but is still fully stocked in the maroon (which is perfect for Fall & Winter!).

If you had to choose one – which cardi would be a staple in your closet?


Now, for a little life update! If you follow me on the ‘gram, you know that Kev & I moved to the suburbs last weekend! We loved living in the city, but wanted more room. And, when we found an apartment that overlooked a pond and wooded area, we jumped on it. Those of you who know Kevin personally know that he is living for our porch right now! Mr. Outdoors!

Besides the move, August was a horrible month for me in terms of migraines. I had three really bad migraines with numerous headaches in between. This is not normal! I’ve mentioned before that I have chronic headaches and migraines, but three in one month gives me flashbacks to high school. A time I care not to relive if I can help it (lol)! Knock on wood, they’ve been a lot better this month so far, and I’m crediting that to the move and taking a lot more time off from work than I normally would. When work doesn’t feel like “work,” it’s hard to remember that you need a mental break for your general well-being. Taking some time away from staring at a screen constantly also likely has something to do with it. So, I’m back to our regularly scheduled posts, and have made some lifestyle modifications so that hopefully this type of headache cycle doesn’t happen again!

And, to end on a happy note! I hit 30K Instagram followers and 2M monthly Pinterest views last week and could not be more excited 😆In reading this blog, shopping from my links, commenting and engaging with me, you’re supporting a dream. And that means everything to me! Thank you for all of you support this last year, and I know this is only the beginning of our fashion journey together!

See you all Friday!

How to Create the Perfect Transition Outfit

Can someone explain to me how it’s already August 8th? I swear it was the 1st a minute ago!

Time is flying by, which means the days are getting just a little shorter and the nights a bit cooler. If you haven’t noticed, stores are already putting Summer clothes on the clearance rack and bringing out the Fall staples! I’m not complaining, Fall and Winter fashion is my jam. Although, I would be okay with slightly warmer temps and less snow come Winter 😋

Today, I wanted to share an easy, foolproof way to wear your favorite Summer pieces into Fall. A lot of people tend to think that a new season means a new wardrobe. And, although there are items you’ll have to circle in and out, you can use a lot of your Summer favorites throughout the year.

For this post, I’m styling this gorgeous lace tank from Abercrombie 3 different ways. It comes in 4 colors, including this beautiful golden color, which is perfect for Summer and Fall. It has button and lace detailing, which makes it easy to dress up or down. The straps are over an inch thick, which also means you could wear this number at the office or on the weekend! And, even better, you can wear a normal bra with it 😉. It does fit TTS and works for regular & petite ladies! I snagged it on sale, naturally, but would gladly pay full price ($58) because the quality is top notch, and it’ll be so easy to style throughout the year!

Here are three ways you can style this top for now and into Fall! And, I did a try on with all three of these outfits on my Instagram stories today if you want a closer look!

Tank | Shorts (on sale for $18! Fit like midrise) | Sandals | Bag (c/o) | Sunnies (c/o – use code LOMEYER15 for $15 off!) | Earrings (c/o)

For Right Now:

An easy, chic summer look! Pair this tank with your favorite shorts or denim skirt and sandals for a casual summer outting! I kept it simple with some of my favorite studs from Sugarfix, but you could also wear a dainty necklace. I would suggest wearing simple jewelry since the top itself has so much detail!

Tank | Shorts | Sandals | Cardi

For Cool Nights & Mornings:

Our days are still in the 80’s-90’s, but our nights are getting down to the 60’s, and I’m loving it! But, that does mean I usually have to bring an extra layer for once the sun goes down! A cardi overtop a tank and shorts is a such a cute look that most people don’t do. This cardi is from last year’s NSale, but I have this year’s version in the burnt orange color and love it! It’s still under $50 even when full price, and I would suggest sizing down one (wearing an XXS here!)

Tank | Jeans (on sale for $41!) | Jacket | Bag | Booties | Earrings (c/o)

For Fall:

Easily my favorite look! This look is perfect for a weekend out brewery hopping (maybe we just do that – lol) or a day out with friends! You could easily dress it up with a moto jacket for a night out! I already know that these new raw hem jeans (on sale!) are going to be my go-to for this Fall. They come in regular, short & tall sizes (wearing short here) and are so comfy! I styled them another way on my Instagram earlier today.

Out of the three looks, which is your favorite? Are you excited for the arrival of Fall fashion or are you still living for Summer? I think I’m a little of both right now!

Also, can’t leave the post without pointing out the obvious. Anyone notice that I lost a foot of hair? I feel like it’s been SO LONG since I did a regular outfit post with all the sales going on in July that it 1. feels SO good to be back at it and 2. realized that you guys haven’t seen the new ‘do yet! I loved my extensions & my hair long (it was just as long as my extensions, just not very thick), but this short haircut feels much more “me” 🙂

Summer Style Trend: Yellow & Gold

Happy Friday everyone!

What a crazy week! Did it fly by for you too? I swear it was just Sunday night, I blinked and now it’s Friday. After a very very busy weekend (talking minimal sleep but tons of fun), Kev & I are looking forward to having a few weeks of staying in the Cities. We’ve been traveling so much the last few weeks that’ll it be so nice to be home for a few weekends!

I have a super cute outfit lined up for today! But first, did you see that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalogue came out this week?! Last year was my first time blogging the sale, and it was equal parts overwhelming and exciting (lol!). I’m doing a full post on how to prep and shop this amazing sale next week and have a few other special things lined up for it but feel free to peruse the catalogue now for some weekend reading! But, get excited!! This is literally the BEST sale of the year (and we all know I love a good sale), and it’s happening in just two short weeks! Nordstrom releases a ton of Fall arrivals all on major sale. Usually sale styles are end of season pieces but not in this case! It’s the perfect time to stock up on Fall and Winter essentials at insanely low prices! 😍

Top | Shorts | Shoes (sold out – similar, similar) | Bag | Earrings | Bracelets | Ring | Liquid Lipstick in “Caramello”

Now onto this outfit & a huge summer style trend – yellow! 💛

You may have noticed that yellow is having something of a moment this summer. It seems to be everywhere! But, it’s not a color that looks great on everyone. Given my fair skin and blonde-ish hair, it can sometimes make me look very washed out. So, when I came across this golden sweater tank at Nordstrom, I had a feeling it was the answer to my problem! Instead of washing me out, golden yellows tend to give fair skin like mine more of a glow and enhance my tan.

I love that this sweater tank is super lightweight. The weight, along with the darker hue, makes it perfect for wearing out at night and transitioning into the Fall! This is easily a piece you’ll get a lot of use out of and can wear year round, which makes it worth the price ($60)! It also works for the office or going out. You can layer a blazer or jacket over it for day wear and take it off come night. I don’t know about you, but I’m always a fan of tops that can do “double duty” (work for the office & play!).

I’m wearing a XS, and it fits TTS. I paired it with one of my fave pairs of shorts (only $29 – TTS) and some booties. Don’t be afraid to change things up. Booties and shorts are a great, unexpected combo! They’re a perfect pairing for a night out and really take any outfit to the next level! I left the top untucked here, but it also looks great tucked in like I did in this outfit.


I have a busy day planned out, and we’re headed to dinner tonight with friends! Have a great Friday everyone!

How to Style Denim Overalls for an Easy Summer Look

Minneapolis style blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares How to Style Denim Overalls for an Easy Summer Look Minneapolis style blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares How to Style Denim Overalls for an Easy Summer Look Minneapolis style blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares How to Style Denim Overalls for an Easy Summer Look Minneapolis style blogger Lauren Meyer of The Lo Meyer Blog shares How to Style Denim Overalls for an Easy Summer Look


Happy Hump Day friends!

I’m here to introduce you to your new best friend (these overalls) 😏. Denim overalls have been trending for the last year or so, but it took me a while to be okay with it enough to wear them myself. I wasn’t a huge fan when I was a kid, so figured that just transferred into adulthood. But, I was wrong! 😋

These denim “shortalls” (short-overalls) are too cute not to love! They are absolutely perfect for your casual summer day and are likely to become one of the most versatile pieces in your closet! Think of these like you would any romper or dress, it’s an easy go-to when you’re rushing out the door or have a crazy day planned because they look great over any basic tee! I styled them with this deconstructed striped tie tee from Nordstrom (currently on sale for $18) for a casual summer look. However, they’d also look great with a longer sleeve top for cooler days. Or, go outside the box and style it with a crop top, off the shoulder top or swimsuit! If you’re like me, you’re already thinking of how cute a 4th of July themed one piece would look under these! 😍

They come in the denim wash, a black, camo and white wash as well. They are currently $78, which is great deal when you consider how many ways you can style them! I did get the XS but could have sized down one more to XXS as they don’t have petite sizes, and these are a bit roomy! However, I like them enough not to return them 😉. I’m wearing a XS in the top as well, and it fits true to size. I would suggest sizing up if you’d like it a bit longer. It has more of a cropped fit (but looks great with high waisted denim!).

I kept my accessories simple since these overalls are pretty casual and went with a pair of studs like these, my favorite watch and my fave under $20 slides (currently $16 with code SWEET at checkout)! If you follow me on the ‘gram, you’ve likely seen these sandals more than a few times! They’re one of the comfiest pairs I own and are a steal for the price! I’ve been wearing them since our Sanibel trip with no issues because the straps are so soft 😍. I would suggest sizing up if you’re between sizes! I’m normally a 6.5 and went with a 7.

This week (well, Monday) marks one YEAR since starting this blog! In some ways, I can’t believe it’s been a year… but in others I can’t believe it’s been only a year. LOL! So many good things have happened and are yet to come. I’m working on some great content for the coming months and have exciting collaborations lined up for you all!

Please know that your support of my blog means the WORLD to me. There is no way I would be able to do what I do, or call it my business, if it were not for all of your support! Although your subscribing, liking, commenting, following, sharing, buying through my links/site may not seem like a lot, it all adds up big time! Without it, I would not be able to keep creating great content for you all and keep you inspired! So THANK YOU a million times over for all of your support this past year and in the years to come!

Have a great day everyone!
