I have been looking for a burgundy chunky knit sweater and saw a couple at Nordstrom but they were all pricy around $78. I didn’t want to spend that much. So when I came across this one I snagged it! It’s so comfy, soft, and warm! I love it paired with this plain white tee, easy, casual and comfortable all around! I literally can’t stop wearing hats in the fall! It’s such an easy way to hide dirty hair and sometimes just adds a little something to an otherwise “basic” outfit.

Thanks for reading have a lovely day!

P.S. Happy Veteran’s Day to all those who have served our country to bravely! Thank you for making America great!

Oh my goodness, this vest! It is soo ridiculously soft and I find myself wanting to wear it with literally everything. It also comes in a tan color which is linked. I don’t know why but it wouldn’t let me link the black. But this is such a simple outfit with a key special piece, the vest. You can pair it with so many different looks too. All black, over a dress, top and skirt, etc. So many possibilities.

Hope your Monday is off to a good start and you had a nice weekend! 🙂

P.S. If you’re looking to get some Holiday shopping done early I have an online trunk show open now. You can click HERE to shop! The earrings I’m wearing are gorgeous for the Holidays!!

plaid top (on sale!)| denim | booties | hat | bag

This is my favorite plaid top ever! It is so soft and has the cutest ruffle on the back. I loved these fall colors (plus Bears colors!). It also comes in a red plaid and an ivory. Size down it runs really big.

We had a fun Halloween weekend although it was cold and rainy! Isla was a Flamingo and we went to a Halloween breakfast at the Morton Arboretum. She hated the men dressed up as characters (the Ninja Turtle was especially traumatizing). We got to head downtown that evening for a friend’s party which was fun too!

Hope everyone had an enjoyable weekend!

She went from loving/hugging Ana and Elsa one second to wanting me the next. Typical, haha

isla’s outfit: similar dress | similar hat | similar kitty shoes here & here

Sorry for the photo overload but I just couldn’t pick which I liked best because it’s hard to only like certain photos of your child! lol These matching-ish outfits happened accidentally. I realized we both had window pane pieces and burgundy hats so we went for it! It’s fun matching your little. Although she always, always looks cuter!

I know you’re probably sick of hearing “I’m sorry for the hiatus” but I really am. Sometimes life just gets in the way. But I hope to be back to regular blogging soon! As always thanks so much for your support and for reading! Hope you have a great day.

floral dress (now available in grey & burgundy) | flats | bag | sunnies

You might remember this dress from a post I did in spring. But I just love it and wanted to show you how it can work transitioning into fall as well! The colors in it are so pretty and it comes in an awesome grey that would work for both seasons as well! I love the little peplum ruffle hem detail. And these flats are less than $25. And they’re awesome. They also come in black and highly recommend!

Hope everyone is having a good Monday! We need some sun!

I can’t believe it’s already Thursday! This week just got away from me! It seems as though we’re finally having some fall weather. I can’t complain, I love October! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and now that Isla can walk this year we will do some real trick or treating which will be fun!

Hope you have a great day!

candle warmer | candle (last year bath & body works) | mini pumpkin candles | owls | hello fall sign (Target dollar spot find) | Lantern (homegoods)

I posted this pic on instagram but I know I have a few readers that don’t use IG so I’ll share again. 99% of the time when I burn a candle I don’t burn it at all. I use a candle warmer. It plugs into the wall, you place your candle on it and it warms the wax until it melts. It fills your home so much more with the scent than traditional burning! It also makes your candles last much much longer. Like almost indefinitely. I “warmed” this exact candle all last season and it is practically still brand new. It is also much safer than having an open flame around a crazy toddler! The candle warmer can also double as a coffee warmer to keep your coffee, hot chocolate, or tea nice and hot! Which is perfect for the colder temps that will soon be upon us! This is my exact warmer. Let me know if you get one and how you like it!

Last weekend we went apple picking! Someone was much more interested in the tasting part…

Hope everyone is having a great week! Sorry about the lack of posts. It has been kind of slow getting into the groove this week! Working on a few little decor updates in our family room too.

Oh P.S. has anyone tried the new Toasted Graham Latte (TGL) from Starbucks? It’s soo good. I’ve never been super obsessed with the PSL like everyone else and this is right up my alley!

Thanks for stopping by!
