Who says you can’t wear white after Labor Day? Winter white and pastels are going to be huge this season so I’m sure we will be seeing a lot of it all over! This is an easy way to mix up some basic pieces in your wardrobe!

Happy Friday! Hope everyone has a safe and fun Halloween! You’ll have to wait to see what Isla and I will be til next week. You’ll get a sneak peak if you follow me Instagram! Happy Halloween!

Pretty sure I’ll be in this dress all the time until the temps really start to drop. I love that it has a fall vibe with the wine color & plaid (I told you I was obsessed!) but is still comfortable for those in between days because of the short sleeves. It’s also great because it’s a bit longer in the front and definitely longer in the back. This is great when you’re chasing a toddler around for more coverage! This bag has pretty much become my new diaper bag. I just love it so much! I was sick of toting around a big heavy diaper bag and never using half the junk in it. I’m trying a simpler approach and so far really like it. I just keep the essentials in it, a few diapers, travel pack of wipes, snacks, a pacifier, a small toy, a bow/clip for Isla’s hair and that’s pretty much it! I love this bag because of the price point, color, and size. It is the perfect size tote! Not too big or small.

I hope everyone had a nice weekend! Thanks for reading!

Nothing quite says “classy” like black, white & pearls. I felt like Audrey Hepburn in this outfit. I’m loving this neutral combo lately with a bold lip like the bright pink one here. This skirt can be styled easily into spring and summer! I picked it up at loft on clearance, the only one left and in my size, score! I linked a couple similar though. This sweater I just got online from loft and it is on sale for $15 right now! Such a steal! It’s mixed media so the back is a blousey material while the front a soft sweater. So cute and comfy. A cluster pearl necklace is a modern twist on the classic strand of pearls. It’s a fun statement piece and worth the investment!

Thanks for reading, xox!

When in doubt wear all black…

Wearing all black is an easy and chic look. This one happens to be super comfortable because I’m wearing the most amazing leggings. I have talked about them before but I swear they’re the best. They have a wider waistband to really suck you in and make you look smooth in all the right places and don’t slip down. A+ in my book. And ok it’s official, I’m obsessed with these boots. The heel really isn’t as high as I originally thought and it’s a chunkier heel which makes them more wearable. I also really like the almond shaped toe, a little bit dressy but not as dressy as a pointy toe. I have been wearing them non stop since I got them. Still a really great deal for an OTK boot AND they’re actually really comfortable. Love! The bag is a staple piece I wear all the time when I don’t use my diaper bag. Everyone needs a good black crossbody bag and this one comes in some other fun colors as well if you already have black.

Can you guys believe Christmas is in a week?! Ahh did you get all your shopping done or are you a last minute snag the very last sale kinda person? I have one more person to buy for then I’m done. I have started to organize all the gifts in our basement but just need to get on wrapping them! I’m hosting a Christmas brunch for some of my old co-workers on Monday so I’ll have some tasty recipes for you next week!

Happy almost Friday! 🙂

This necklace is a perfect medium size and the length is adjustable. It is much longer than most standard necklaces so it is great for layering daintier and shorter pieces with it!

One other thing I just have to tell you about. I have been wanting a pair of OTK (over the knee) boots since I saw so many cute pairs from Tory Burch at the Anniversary sale. Well even with Anniversary sale prices the Tory boots were all still out of my price range ($280+). I had kinda given up on the idea and then I found these. Ahhhhh cue angels singing. I originally ordered them from Nordstrom because I am a very loyal cardholder (and love racking up my reward points) they were on sale for $158, not bad! All the reviews said they run small. I wear a size 9 in boots regularly so I ordered the 9.5, they arrived and were too big. My foot was slipping toward the front. Wahhh. I did a quick google search because Nordstrom was out of 9’s. Lo and behold my ever faithful Amazon had them! Not only did they have them but they were on sale even more than at Nordstrom for $122. Then I notice it says Green Monday 30% off clothes, jewelry, shoes, watches, and luggage with promo code GRNMON14. THESE BOOTS COST ME $85 WITH FREE SHIPPING WHEN ALL WAS SAID AND DONE. YES $85 FOR HEELED OTK BOOTS. Sorry I yelled. Unbelievable! BTW I ordered them Monday from Amazon and they arrived Wednesday! Now Nordstrom would have price matched but they didn’t have my size anyway so that was out of the question. And now they are sold out on Nordstrom.

Now onto the boots themselves, the heel is quite high but not horrible uncomfortable. The material is a synthetic suede that is so soft and feels great. The stitching that holds the foot and shaft of the boot together is no where near as noticeable in real life, the seam is more hidden. They have gold toned zippers down the back of the knee which is a cute touch plus if they are too tight on your lower thigh upper knee area that will solve that problem, just unzip slightly. They fit quite snug up against your leg so they don’t fall down, I think the material helps with this too. Ok I’m done, I’m obsessed. You had to know.

In conclusion these boots are amazing and if you’re in the market for ones like them go buy them now!!!
