Okay, if you follow my Instagram account you have probably noticed I got a new watch and it keeps appearing in my posts. Well I am sorry, but I cannot stop wearing my JORD wood watch!

Scroll through these photos of me wearing this gem and then I will tell you more about it. OH AND a little something something at the end of the post. :)
















First of all let's talk about the amazing wood box the watch comes in. I'm so in love with it, it has taken a permanent shot on my nightstand, half for function half for display. Another great thing is your watch will fit you perfectly from the day you get it in the mail, because JORD has you measure your wrist when you place your order. You have to do this! It only takes a couple minutes.

Now let's talk about this beauty! This is by far the most unique watch I have ever owned. I can't get over the beautiful zebra wood and I get so many compliments when I wear it. It's very light weight, so over wearing heavy watches that make my wrist sore. When choosing my watch I really wanted a bigger face so I went with a unisex style called Frankie. Below is the direct link to my watch.  

For the something something I promised you... I have teamed up with JORD to offer you a GIVEAWAY! Click link below to enter. 

The giveaway is live now, and will end Sunday 7/17/2016.
A $75 voucher will expire on 8/15/2016, and the $20 e-gift cards will expire 11/15/2016. Good luck! 


Until next time!
XO- Sasha

THANKSGIVING DAY OUTFIT – the powder blue coat

This might not be what you had in mind for a "Thanksgiving Day" outfit, but who wants to blend into all the plaid and turtle neck sweaters this year?! This look is very easy to achieve, you might already have most of the items in your closet. Below are a few inspiration photos and the items you will need to pull this look off. I am also giving maternity options for those prego ladies out there like me, who can't wear normal clothes right now!

2nd Trimester Weekend Packing List for the Fashionista

Are you a fashionista in her 2nd trimester and feel the every morning struggle of what to wear? Now you have a weekend trip and need to pack. I am right here with you!

I thought it was hard getting dressed before I was pregnant. NO WAY! Being into fashion and caring about what you wear while being pregnant is a real challenge. I work at a large fashion corporation's head quarters where everyday is a fashion show. Everyone notices and comments about what you are wearing. Let's say I've been real stressed since I started showing! I have a couple go-to office outfits, but now I need weekend outfits and I want to change it up a little if I can...

I always start with some inspiration photos. You might have noticed there isn't a ton out there for "on trend" maternity photos. You have to rely on your celebs and hope a good fashion blogger gets pregnant! Here is what I came up with... It's fall, but I am visiting the northern California bay area, so shouldn't be cold yet.







Below are the items I will be packing for my trip...


1. Leith Ruched Body Con (Nordstrom) / 2. Plaid Shirt (Nordstrom) / 3. Adidas 'Superstar' (Nordstrom) / 4. Leather Motorcycle Jacket (LAMARQUE) / 5. Long Sleeve Maternity Crew Tee-Black & White (Gap) / 6. Black Maternity Jeans (Gap) / 7. Ponte Dress (Cupcakes & Cashmere ON SALE) / 8. Red Jacket (Nordstrom) / 9. Black Bootie (Topshop) / 10. Hat (Free People) / 11. Statement Sunglasses (Tom Ford) / 12. Shift Dress (Nordstrom) / 13. White Moto Jacket (Nordstrom) / 14. 'Rockstud' Flats (Valentino

Key Points
-Hopefully you have invested in some maternity basics, I would recommend neutral colors.
-Being pregnant might force you to wear different clothes and flatter shoes, but there are no limits to the accessories you can wear! I only listed sunglasses above, but go through all your scarves, handbags, and sunglasses, now is the time to put them to use!

StyleSpotter is a website and an app for the smart shopper! Everyone loves Pinterest, but it’s so hard to actually buy the items you see. Who knows how long the items have been on there and if they are still in stock anywhere. StyleSpotter has fixed this point of pain! On StyleSpotter you have a profile and collections (like your Pinterest boards), BUT you can buy it right there! This makes me so happy, I can’t tell you how much time I have wasted online or in stores trying to find something I saw on Pinterest. 




Okay, how will StyleSpotter save you money? After you make a profile you will start to follow your favorite brands and people (follow me of course: mintedmethod). You will favorite items you like by clicking the star on the top left corner of the photo. The items you favorite with be saved to your saved products page. Once you have an item saved you will get an email notification once the price drops or the item goes on sale! Brilliant right?!

You can see the price dropped on this vest.


Now you want to personalize your profile and start building collections. Below you can see my collections I have started. What inspires you? It could be work outfits or what you want to buy for your upcoming vacation. You simply add your saved items to your new collections. You can really get creative with this part by adding text boxes and you can even upload your own photo for your collection cover.

Leave me a comment if you have questions. I'm like a pro at this now. :)

Can't wait! #Zoolander2

Okay for this look I have a cropped sweatshirt and a maxi skirt with a very loud statement necklace. I love to wear all black and a colored accessory! This look could get a little witchy without some color :) I'm glad the maxi trend is sticking around for awhile. And stock up on your turquoise jewelry now, it's going to be the next hottest thing in the accessory world!

Another one of my favorite items from Living Doll LA's online boutique! The Black Hallow Top is very easy to wear. Any pair of jeans and some cute ankle booties and you are good to go! I decided to style the top in more of a grungy/urban city look, but you can easily style it in a boho/festival girl way, which I'm sure I will be doing very soon.

Sweatshirt (Coming soon)

The graphic tee I am wearing is a size medium.  I wanted it oversized. The sweatshirt runs a little big so I got it in a small. The sweatshirt is my favorite piece, so soft and cozy. You can really wear it anywhere.

Urban Outfitters Sweater + H&M Jeans

I'm all about the oversized sweaters! Paired with some ripped jeans and booties you have an easy look. It's starting to get pretty chilly in Seattle, so I want sweaters that I can layer. This sweater from Urban Outfitters is 100% cotton, WARM, but thin enough I can throw on my winter coat over it. The H&M jeans I am wearing are by far the cheapest pair of denim I own. If someone took the tags off and told me they cost $100 I would buy them no questions asked! They are so on point with the trend this season, you will be seeing me wear them much more.

Vigoss Jeans + Mate Sweatshirt
I can't stop wearing my new Chelsea skinny jeans from Vigoss! They fit me perfectly and they hold their shape. The wash is ideal for Fall and Winter. And the price!! This isn't my first pair of Vigoss jeans and it won't be my last. I highly recommend this brand! 





Can we also talk about this sweatshirt by Mate? Softest sweatshirt I own. I'm obsessed! This is my first item from this brand, but I don't think they will be able to keep me away. They are a clothing company based out of LA who's goal is "to create clothing that is effortless, classic, and relaxed just the the perfect vintage tee." Mission accomplished in my opinion!



        




THURSDAY NOV. 6TH, 2014

This post is all about the “Team Seattle” T-Shirt by Shillingford Company. The shirt comes in unisex sizes. I ordered the x-small because I wanted a more fitted look. However, I have seen this shirt oversized on girls and that is also cute. I wanted to show you how to style this in a couple different ways… you can see below that I have a very tom-boy look with a camo hat, a more girly look with a black skirt with a plaid around my waist, and then with boyfriend jeans and a chunky scarf. ANYONE can pull this jersey look off! The shirt also comes in Blue. If you aren’t from Seattle you can get a “Team London” and “Team Roseau”.

Cozy Sweater Sunday

Today like most Sundays I am busy running around. Church in the morning with my husband and then going to watch football at a friend's house for a couple hours. Probably grocery shopping after that. I ALWAYS want to look cute and fashionable no matter what my day looks like. Today I decided on a statement piece.  It is a black and white cardigan that is so cozy, but still has the detail to be my statement piece. The rest of my outfit is very easy, a black polyester tank, black skinny jeans, and then to add some color, my new burgundy Sam Edelman booties. I chose to wear my hair down with loose curls, but I do think that having a messy top bun would be cute with this outfit as well. I am wearing my usual go-to gold rings and a simple gold necklace. Wearing a few simple accessories can really add to this outfit but not make it look you were trying to dress it up. Makeup is my everyday routine with a nude lipstick. 

One more way to wear this cardigan… dark blue skinny jeans tucked into knee high black boots with white v-neck tee. Accessorize with a long necklace, maybe with a colored stone to add a pop of color.

How to Wear Leather Leggings this Fall

Today is all about the leather leggings. There are so many good leather leggings out there to buy and so many bad ones. Last year I got a pair that had a small waist band and they were always falling down. This year I bought a pair that are only leather on the front and they have a wide waist band. MUCH better! You can seriously wear these so many different ways but today I'm wearing them with a plaid. Heels can dress this look up but I would also wear booties with this exact outfit.

In today's post I am featuring some lace drawstring shorts from NTYLS.com.

A little bit about the site... I really love NTYLS (note to you little sister), they not only have really cute clothes but they have a blog that gives sisterly advice with questions about dating to advice about drama with your friends. And this isn't your typical cheesy advice column you find in your fashion magazine, they give you honest advice from a group of women who have been in your position before.
 So pleased with the quality of these shorts!
Each package comes with words of advice, sooo cute!





I ordered a medium and they fit me perfectly. I usually wear a 2-4 in pants and since they have a drawstring I like that they are a little loose on me.
They just recently launched their Instagram account, follow them @ntyls



SUNDAY SEPT. 7TH, 2014

One of my favorite things right now is long jackets and cardigans. Another way to style them while it's warm out is to tie them around your waist like we have been seeing everyone do with plaid button ups.
