fall essentials

Black Ripped JeansĀ 

It’s September and Labor Day is behind us.  I am officially PUMPED for boots, oversized sweaters, scarves and beautiful fall weather. Since we moved out of the deep south it will be wonderful to experience a true fall (Alabama doesn’t do fall – just summer.winter.summer.repeat). We have a few fun activities planned for the fall and I can hardly wait for pretty days and changing colors. 

I bought these jeans and this top during the Old Navy sale last week. The top is so great (and under $15!) so I bought it in black too! The basis for fall for me include booties, skinnies, an oversized top and a tassel necklace. The reason I love fall and winter is because your go-to “uniform” is the easiest when you have your basics down. Mix it up with jewelry and you’ll always have it together!

The Best-A Vest

When I love something I love it a LOT. Take a fall staple for example – the vest. I love them. Quilted, patterned, faux fur, faux leather, shearling, you name it, I probably have one/want one. I am certifiably obsessed.

A few weekends ago I spent a little quality time with mom and we had a fun filled day of shopping, eating, talking (plus I went to an awesome Gemology show, I’m a bead dork). On our day of fun we hit up H&M which is one of my favorites because I can always find something I like (and get tons of use out of and it’s affordable) Win win situation for me! I found this great white button down top that fits perfectly and goes with everything! Layered, worn with leggings, or in my case today-with a vest. I love when I get lots of use out of the same item… It’s more bang for my buck. Re work your items and see what all you can do with it. You’ll love them a little more and more each time. I promise.

This vest was a purchase from ellieclothing recently and I’ve already worn it a few times. Once with leopard shorts and booties when we had a hot fall day, today layered with a crisp white shirt and dark skinnies.

I threw on a little arm candy to finish off my neutral-vest-fall-obsessed outfit and I must admit, a little arm candy goes a long way. How fabulous are these pieces?? Made by yours truly.

I hope everyone had a relaxed, rejuvenated and wonderful weekend. We are resting and getting ready for the busy week ahead. Thanks so much for reading.
