Chunky Knit Staple









Hi, friends! Can't believe it's already the weekend. I feel like this week flew by, and good thing because I'm so ready to relax and spend time with my family. I've been busy planning our fall trip, packing for my upcoming girls weekend trip, and catching up on laundry. Why is there always so much laundry??? I swear, I have a few items but the rest is Chris and the kids. 

I know what you may be thinking, well, if you are in the south and it's still hot as b*lls... you probably think I'm nuts for shooting sweaters right now. I am :) It's okay though, I survived and I'm so happy to have content ahead of time this year. Typically, I'm way late to the game! But - I promise I'll have transitional outfit ideas up on the blog really soon. I just couldn't help myself when I recently had a streak of inspiration. Fall is seriously just the best season. My pumpkin candle burning makes me feel some type of way! I can't be the only one.. right? 

Anyways, I think this outfit is so perfect for those chilly days, and then take you into a dinner or date night. Football tailgate, pumpkin patch, shopping day with the girls, really I'll probably just wear this everywhere. 

I hope this gives you a little inspiration for the upcoming Fall weather! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Autumnal Hues








Hi guys! Today, I wanted to share my favorite peice from Bloomingdales that will be perfect to add into your wardrobe for Fall. This red suede jacket caught my eye, and I originally paired it with my red tee and these Maje mom jeans. Although a tee and jeans is my typical, everyday uniform (#momlife) I wanted to mix things up a bit and try something different. You can easily throw this jacket over a dress if you love the juxtaposition of a feminine and masculine look like I do!

FYI, Bloomingdales is currently having a buymoresavemore event, and you can get up to 25% off your purchase. Besides having an amazing 100% exclusives collection that you can't find anywhere else, Bloomingdales always has a great sale going that you can take advantage of and grab items on sale before the season fully hits and then you're left staring at those damn cute boots for full price. ha ha! Anyways, I highly recommend my Stuart Weitzman lowland boots, and this year I added this pair in black to my closet.

You really can't go wrong with a suede jacket, but if you aren't feeling the stud detailing, this option is gorgeous and comes in three colors.

That's all for today, but I hope you enjoyed todays post. Would you try something different and go with an edgier look?

Inspired by the Classics : Fall Staples













This coming up Friday will officially be the first day of Fall, and with that I wanted to start creating content for all of you lucky babes that get to experience that beautiful change in the weather. Due to the fact that we live in sunny south FL, we'll be taking some trips so we can not only enjoy the Fall scenery and weather, but to shoot some outfits. I don't know about you, but my mojo always comes back around when it's time for colder weather fashion. I thrive in layers, chunky sweaters, LEOPARD BOOTIES.. just all of it gets me riled up. I swear one day we will be able to move near my parents and live with the beautiful seasons in Atlanta, GA. 


If you've been following along with me, you'll know that I recently did a huge closet clean out and decided to create more of a classic, capsule wardrobe. The first staple I would highly recommend is a pair of leopard shoes, either my all time favorite Kate Spade loafers or these stunning Tory Burch booties. Both are extremely comfortable and can be paired with just about every outfit. Remember, leopard is a neutral. 

Next, a classic cashmere crew neck sweater is the best basic that can be worn alone, and easily as a base layer. I purchased this Equipment sweater after Madelyn was born, and 3 years later its still in amazing condition. Besides the fact that your girl needs to remember her damn lint roller when she shoots outfits.... 

Now, you all know I have to throw a hat suggestion in here. It just wouldn't feel right if I didn't! Baker boy hats are the biggest trend right now, and I have been in love with them since I wore my first one to NYFW last February. I don't see this trend going anywhere for a long time. It will come back around every season. This one from Eugenia Kim is a bit of a splurge, but it's stunning and the cashmere will be lovely in the cooler weather. I also love this more affordable option, and I just ordered this one


Lastly, a camel wrap coat will be your best friend all throughout Fall and Winter. It instantly completes the simplest of outfits, and can be worn with everything because of the classic color and style. Mine is old from Zara, but I found this one from Asos that I think will sell out pretty quick. When you find this style coat in an affordable price range, they always go quick. It's SO hard to find a good one that isn't $700+.. I swear it took me forever. 


Anyways, I hope you enjoyed todays post. Thank you so much for stopping by, love you guys!

The Print Everyone Will Be Wearing For Fall














It's nothing new, you know, plaid for Fall/Winter... but that doesn't mean it's not worth updating your wardrobe occasionally. I've got a really beautiful plaid vest that I purchased years ago now, and can still wear because it's very much relevant. It's just the way we wear the pieces that change. 

This season, I really love oversized denim, like this pair that is under $100. You can stick to a more fitted top to balance out the fit of these jeans, or go the opposite route and pair an oversized blazer with them like I did here. Whichever you decide, it's mostly about how you feel. If you're confident, and comfortable - I say go for it. What you wear doesn't have to please everyone around you as long as it makes you happy. 

This Tibi blazer was a Nordstrom anniversary sale purchase, which totally paid off in the end now that I see how much I can wear it. It's more lightweight than I had imagine from the photo online, so it makes it perfect for this awkward-still hot, but I want to dress for Fall weather right now. Of course, easily becoming a layering piece when the temps drop. 

While we are on the topic of plaid, I just ordered this stunning trench coat after seeing it on one of my favorite fellow bloggers, Brooklyn Blonde


Thank you so much for reading, love you guys! xx

Colour By Numbers

 








How freaking cute is the Ted Baker Colour By Numbers capsule collection?! A bit more relaxed than your typical Ted Baker that you're used to seeing, but I love the everyday staples that can be mixed and matched to dress down like I did, or easily dress up. If you're looking for flawless everyday style, this collection is right up your alley. I loved this fun and feminine take on a sporty luxe look. I mean, everything from Ted Baker is so perfectly luxe, there's no denying that! 

I think this tee is my absolute favorite though. It's crazy soft, and really easy to wear. The fabric is so luxurious that you can dress it up for a night out or paired with a blazer for the office. 

What are your favorites from the Colour By Numbers collection?

One Bottle Away





For as long as I can remember, skincare has been so important to me. I grew up watching my grandmother's love for skincare products and how meticulously she took care of her skin. I guess you could say it rubbed off on me, and I've been hooked ever since. Having great skin is the best boost of confidence for me. With the help of the right products, I can confidently go makeup free, or have the perfect starting canvas for applying makeup.. which makes it more fun!

Without further adieu, I'm SO excited to partner with SK-II for this post, and share with you one of my secret weapons in my skincare routine!

So, let's start from the beginning of my skincare journey to give you a glimpse into what the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence can do. Before adding this miracle water into my routine, my skin felt and looked so dull and lifeless. Moisture wouldn't stay for long, and you could tell that my skin was lacking that perfect plump and glow. It got to the point that I had small bumps around my eye and upper cheek area that would dramatically show up whenever I wore makeup.

Basically, I was a hot mess and was feeling really down on myself. That's when SK-II's Facial Treatment essence comes in and literally saved my skin. Within one week, I had my glow back and my skin had already started to even out. Two weeks and my skin was totally changed. A night and day difference to be honest. Chris even noticed and made a comment saying he thought I was wearing makeup when I actually wasn't. That's when I knew this essence was the real deal.

No matter how many different cleansers, serums and moisturizers I've tried over the years, I have really stuck with my Facial Treatment Essence since starting this journey. It became a permanent step in my routine, morning and night. Often referred to as "miracle water", this essence is a clear liquid that is super lightweight, yet delivers maximum hydration, brightening, smoothing, improves uneven skin tone, the list goes on. Highly coveted around the world, and is one of the very first essence ever created, SK-II's signature product will change your skin in just one bottle.
