Happy Thursday everyone! I have an exciting giveaway planned for one lucky reader! I am so thankful and appreciative for all of the support my family, friends, and my readers have given me since I decided to launch this blog. All of the sweet comments and constant encouragement really mean more than you know! So for a little token of my appreciation I am giving away a $50 J. Crew gift card! It's super easy to enter, just follow the instructions below :) I will announce the winner next Friday! Good luck!
Vest: J. Crew Factory (not online, retail version here), Eyelet Tee: J. Crew, Tweed Skirt: J. Crew Factory (here), Booties: Wanted
I scored this skirt last winter, and over the course of a year I found myself pairing it with so many different things. (This day, I had to consciously put on these booties to tone down the preppiness.) Unfortunately, the camera does not do the colors in this skirt justice, but there are so many different colors woven into this tweed that you could probably wear any color with it that your heart desired! Lucky for you all J. Crew Factory brought it back again this year :)
This weekend I had another opportunity to take a trip home to spend some more quality time with family & friends, and boy are my friends fabulous. I couldn't resist taking all of these shots of the little details in their outfits, cause you know I love my accessories :)
Jeans: J. Crew (last year, similar here), Long Sleeve Tee: J. Crew Factory (similar here), Utility Jacket: J. Crew Factory (similar here), Scarf: Target (here), Booties: Madden Girl (here), Watch: Michael Kors (here), Bracelet: J. Crew (here), Bag: LV Speedy, Lipstick: Wet n' Wild 907C (here)
I got another chance to venture home this weekend, and I am beyond ready for some much needed girl time :) It's quite a bit cooler during the day here compared to the 75 degree Georgia heat that I've become accustomed to, so I cozied up in this utility jacket and scarf for my first day back!
Open Cardi/Poncho: Lush (last year, similar here), Tee: J. Crew Factory (here, I like this laid back option too!), Shorts: Forever 21 (similar here, I like these too!), Booties: Wanted via DSW (here), Watch: Timex for J. Crew (here), Sunglasses: Forever 21 (similar here), Bracelets: J. Crew via eBay, David Yurman, & unknown
Okay, so this outfit is a tad bit more laid back than my ordinary everyday look, but I just couldn't help myself. First, these booties arrived at my doorstep less than a week ago, and I think I have worn them the majority of the week. Second, I love love love the color combination of olive green & any shade of purple. So a beautiful fall day in Georgia results in this :)
12345678 9 101112 I am constantly on the lookout for new, trendy accessories or clothes that I know won't break the bank. Asos, J. Crew Factory, Gap, and Top Shop are a few of my favorite stops when I'm shopping online. Here are just a few of my favorite picks that are budget friendly :)
Blouse: Forever 21 (first seen here), Cords: J. Crew Factory (here), Pumps: JustFab (here, I recommend going a half size down), Watch: Michael Kors, Braclets: J. Crew (here), J. Crew Factory, Derng (here), Stella & Dot, David Yurman
I fell in love with pastels this summer, and I am not ready to give them up just because its getting a little colder out. So I've relied on a wintery pant like a corduroy to mix in some pastels this fall!
Blazer: J. Crew (here), Tee: Zara, Jeans: Gap Outlet (similar here), Booties (last year, similar here), Clutch: J. Crew Factory (old, similar here), Glasses: Kate Spade, Watch: Michael Kors, Charm Bracelet: my moms
Anyone who knows me knows my undying love for pugs. I am a sucker for anything (any I mean anything) that has a pug on it, clothes, posters, pillows, door stops, etc. Excessive, I know. My dad knows me too well, he surprised me with this shirt and I cannot stop wearing it! Not only does it have a darling pug on it, it gives homage to a city that holds a special place in my heart, London.
Tee: J. Crew Factory (similar here), Jacket: Tobi (here), Jeans: Forever 21 (similar here), Shoes: J. Crew Factory (similar here), Clutch: Michael Kors (old, similar here), Turquoise Ring: Dara Ettinger (old, shop her jewelry here), Elephant Earrings: Forever 21 (similar here)
I love dressing for fall, but there are days and sometimes even weeks where I find myself wearing little to no color. This floral bomber jacket is a go to when I need to incorporate some color into my outfit. I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! It's almost the weekend :)
