Is camo… I think I have overdone it this season with camo and leopard. I just can’t help myself, both prints look good with everything. Camo, adds a little edge to an outfit which is why I love it so much. Here I have on a t-shirt dress, that is really comfortable might I add. To make it more fall appropriate I added a long sweater and booties if you recreate this look try adding some stockings if it is too cold to go bear-legged. I posted this dress a while back if you want to see it styled differently click here.

Plaid Puffer Vest for Fall

What is fall without plaid? What is fall without a puffer vest? I love wearing outfits that start with a basic look and add items that make the look for festive or relevant to the season we are in. Today, I have a basic white oxford paired with jeans and it all topped off with a vest.

This look is so easy to recreate, take any plain long sleeve tee or sweater (if your not an Oxford person) and put a puffer vest you have hanging out in your closet.  As far as shoes, anything goes… riding boots, flats, sneakers, uggs. You name it, it will be a great look. Simple yet stylish.

I posted this look last year leading into the fall months. It was actually one of my most viewed post from last fall. I wanted to share it again, because of this amazing chunky sweater. This look is so easy, and will always work when you have jeans and a simple shirt and oversized cardigan will make the look stylish and chic. Here I have on a nice blouse, but typically I will wear a plain t-shirt and add the sweater which is only of my favorite looks. The sweater keeps you warm when the weather is chilly.

If you are looking for an amazing cardigan here are a few you will love. 

Breaking out the Boots

I can’t believe October is almost over. It’s sad to see the summer go but now it’s time for boots, sweaters, and tights. Over the past couple of weekends, I started switching my wardrobe for the colder season. I felt it was necessary because I made a purchase and realized I had duplicates.

October is the month I officially start wearing boots. A few years ago, I found myself struggling to find a good balance of when to wear boots and cooler weather attire. I felt I was rushing the season when I tried to wear these items in September, plus it was still way too hot.  November, I would freeze trying to find different ways to make my sundresses work in the colder months. I decided enough was enough, October is a great month to make it happen and it seemed to work. Today it’s going to be 80 degrees, but I am wearing a short sleeve sweater and cropped pants.

This year I tried something a little different, and it seemed to work great. I pulled out my fall items and stored them on clothing racks so I can see what I have and what I need. I found I had no idea what I stored and found myself buying things I already had. I just got in an order from J.Crew and saw I ordered some of their tissue turtlenecks in colors I already had, and now have to go through the whole return process which could have been avoided.

Do you have a certain time you start wearing certain articles of clothing?

Outfits Lately

Hello Friends! Today’s blog post is a quick and simple one. Here are a few outfits I’ve been wearing lately all summed up into one post. I love creating outfits for the blog, but I also think it is important to show and share what I wear on a regular basis. Most of these outfits are things I wear to work some are from the weekend and date nights.

Striped Dress with Utility Vest

The weather has started to get chilly. It’s not warm enough for a coat but I do need something more than just a shirt. In that case, I opt for a vest. Vest are the best way to add something fun to an outfit and it keeps you warm on the cooler days.

This dress is from Old Navy, and I think it would be super cute with booties. You all know how much I love stripes, so when I saw this it was an immediate yes to add to my closet. I am always looking for dresses that are so easy to just throw on. I love pieces that make you feel pretty but are still super comfy.

2018 Fall Bucket List

Fall Pumpkin Selfie

Something about the fall makes me want to sit down and find fun things to do when the weather starts to get cool and crips. The last couple of years I’ve shared some outings and date nights I want to do this year with my husband. I have to say, I’ve never done everything on the list, but maybe this year will be my year. Here is my 2018 Fall Bucket List:

  1. Sit by a fire pit- I’ve been looking everywhere for a place where we can go sit by a bonfire and just drink hot chocolate or apple cider. Am I making this up in my head and something like this does not exist?
  2. Go to the mountains to view the fall foliage – this is on my bucket list every year, I have yet to make it happen, but maybe this will be the year. (fingers crossed)
  3. Visit a place we have never been before- this just came to me today, I was reading an article about visiting the Biltmore Estate, and it sounds like a great adventure. I may not be visiting the Biltmore, but I think it would be fun to visit something locally.
  4. Take a local tour- I think it’s fun to learn about the history of your city or town. Every tour I’ve ever been I’ve learned something new.
  5. Watch the entire Saw series- My husband and I love scary moves and when we were in college, the Saw series came out every October and now that the series is over it would be fun to go back and revisit.

Self-expression has never been my strong suit. When I was younger I would dress according to how I was feeling. I would want to be comfortable if I had a busy day ahead and when I felt confident I would dress up.
