Hi Friends,

Can you believe we are in September? This year has gone by so crazy fast. I can’t believe I am looking for sweaters for the fall already. It feels like the summer just started. What are your plans for the fall? I am actually gong to put together a blog post about what I want to do this fall.

About this outfit. I found this skirt at the Loft last year, and never got around to wearing it before it became chilly. I have been so excited to wear this skirt now! I love the way it looks with these cute little sneakers form Target. The first time I put this outfit together I was at a marriage retreat for my church, with lots of walking involved. Comfort and style is when I needed when at events like this.

Sneakers and a Skirt

Scallop Sweater & Utility Skirt

Happy Friday Friends,

A few months ago I shared my shopping trip with you all. Here are tow pieces I purchased while on this trip. I love wearing bright colors with olive green. Olive green is a neutral to me. If I have something, I have it in olive green, I love how it goes with EVERYTHING.

It is weird that I wear sweaters in the summer time, here in the DC area it has been about 100 degrees. I spend most of my days in a freezing cold office so an outfit like this it works very well for my lifestyle now, and will transition well for the fall weather.

Le Black and White Look

Good Day Ladies,

Did you see what I did in the title… (lol). This look screams Paris to me, hence the Le. Ok I am a dork but lets talk about the outfit. 🙂 This outfit is so easy and comfortable. I have been looking for another pair of black Pixie pants for some time now. I did want to find a budget option because I do have the purchased form J.Crew (currently on sale!) a few years ago, but I wanted to find a great pair on a budget. Old Navy has had a very similar pair if you are looking for a cheaper option which is what I am wearing today.

Hi Friends,

How was your Independence Day? I had such a good time! I went over a friends house and we spent the entire evening eating and playing Monopoly! It was a perfect time. At the end of the night there were fireworks… fancy that on Independence Day! Did you do anything fun over the holiday?

About this outfit: lately, I have been traveling up and down 95 more often then usual, I will be traveling this weekend and again at the end of the month. Needless to say I have been living in sweats (shocker I know). I just have to be comfortable when traveling. I like this outfit because it is easy to wear and comfortable. Instead of looking like a bag lady when traveling I like to find a cuter alternative. You  never know you may want to run into that outlet mall as you are driving to you location. I also like to take my shoes off in the car, so wearing these slides I can slip them on and off quickly.

I love to be comfortable! Pixie Pants are comfortable, and they are cute! The first time I tried pixie pants they were from J-Crew. If you are looking for a more affordable option then I recommend you try Old Navy’s Pixie Pants! I bought these last year but they have a very similar pair in store now.

An Alternative to Sweats

Do you ever have those days when you just don’t really feel like doing much? I think I have them way to often. I just want to put clothes on my body and get the day going. Lately, I have been making an effort to avoid wearing sweats on those days, and going for a more put together option. Which is where the inspiration for this look came from. Here I am wearing a comfortable shirt and a pair of black pants (which feel like you are wearing leggings). It’s simple yet comfortable, perfect if you are running out of the door and don’t have that much time to get your life together (this happens to me way more than I would like to admit lol). When it does happen there is no need to run around looking like a hot mess. I know it is hard but, I am honestly say it takes the same amount of energy to wear this outfit as it does to wear sweats.

Bye Bye Boots

So, I haven’t told you all happy spring! With spring comes open toe shoes, summer dresses, and light jackets. The down size of spring, is we have to put our boots away for a few months. I love boots, but honestly I think I love spring more.

Now that we have said goodbye to our boots, let talk about this outfit. I bought this top to wear to a concert, but ended up wearing something else. I love a simple shirt like this because you can literally wear it so many ways. Tucked in, with leggings, or dress it up for work. I love adding a scarf in the spring because if you get a little chilly you always have something to wrap up in.

Hi Friends,

So sorry for the lack of post last week, I was under the weather for majority of the week. Which is how this look came about. I spent much of the weekend of the couch in these sweats. My little brother actually gave me these as a Christmas Gift. I wanted to go down a size and was on the hunt to exchange them. Turns out they are discontinued so I decided to keep them and I am glad I did. They are so comfortable and warm.

Hello There… Happy Friday Eve!!!

Guess what guys, I have another weekend that is going to be low key! I am so excited. I don’t have much to do this week. Plus… it is going to be warm again!!!!! I have no idea what I want to do but trust me I am going to make the most of it. I am so excited to do NOTHING! What do you all have planned for the weekend?

On to the outfit! Lately, I have been looking for basics, including jeans. I like to find things that can be dressed up or dressed down. Which is honestly one of my favorite looks. While searching for said basics, I found this super comfortable sweatshirt. I love the color, one of my favorite colors to wear is army green, I have a jacket in the same color for about five years and I look forward to wearing it every spring, plus everything matches.
