Chic Classics

It’s finally “sweater weather” here, and I couldn’t be happier about it! Does it get any more chic than a classic dress, coat & pumps? I don’t think so.
I tend to invest in the “classics” that I’ll wear season after season, and this entire look represents what is old, is new again in my book!

Have a happy Monday!

 There’s nothing I love more than getting “all dressed up” for a date night out! The best part about wearing a monochromatic look like this one, is that I get to add fun accessories. You know, all of the ones in my closet & jewelry box that aren’t so practical while toting two little ones around. My everyday jewelry consists of pearl studs, my gold watch & my favorite bracelet. There are so many great statement earrings right now, and gorgeous clutches to finish any date night look.
This J.Crew ruffle top is on sale right now, and it also comes in a pretty, pretty pink color as well. Don’t forget, lots of holiday parties are right around the corner. It’s the perfect holiday top for any upcoming events on your calendar!

Happy Monday, Friends! I hope y’all had a fantastic weekend! We had such a nice, low key weekend around the house, we didn’t want it to end!

T.G.I.F!! I hope that everyone had a great week, and is ready the weekend. If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know that we’ve been fighting colds all week, and are finally on the mend. Thank goodness!

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites” for you! A little shopping, the best pumpkin crisp recipe (From Southern Living, of course) & more!

ONE
We hosted my parents for dinner last Sunday, and I decided to make Southern Living’s “Pumpkin Crisp” recipe. It was so easy to make, and it was delicious!

TWO
J.Crew Elsie Bow Pumps

Elise Bow PumpsHow gorgeous are these heels? I think I might have to ask Santa for these this year.

THREE
Mini Boden Cozy Animal Jacket
teddy bear jacket
Since we have two boys, we are able to hand down a lot of clothes to our youngest (thankfully); however, I still like to add a few pieces that are purely his own. This jacket is the absolute cutest, and is definitely being added to his closest! They’re only little once!

FOUR
Pompom Canvas Storage Baskets
pompom baskets
Trust me, I absolutely love seeing the boys having fun, playing & using their imaginations with their toys all over the house; however, I also love to tidy it all up every.single.night. It actually relaxes me, I know, I’m totally weird. I am sort of a neat freak, and that’s why these little baskets are a dream. Baskets that are cute & functional, two of my favorite qualities!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! This weekend is supposed to be absolutely beautiful weather-wise, so we’ll be spending it outdoors playing with our little ones, and hopefully sneaking in a few dinners al fresco style!

Here’s another edition of “Friday Favorites” for you!

ONE
Vince Camuto Balloon Blouse

Vince Top

This top is so chic, and would be gorgeous dressed up, or perfect with distressed jeans & a cute pair of leopard flats. It comes in 3 colors.

Love the ruffles! It would be so pretty with sweaters, blouses, etc in the Fall!

This is a great “transitional” outfit into Fall. Especially on days when we get those chilly mornings, that quickly heat up around lunch time here in the South. I found this pretty, lace blouse at Target, and I fell in love with the bell sleeves & detail. I also like this one, and this one, too. These jeans have been on repeat, and will continue to be into the Fall/Winter months. I love the undone hem for something new, and they’re so comfortable with the higher waist.
This Stadium coat has been redesigned year after year, by J.Crew, because it’s just that good. It’s so warm, but what I like best about this coat is that it’s available in all of the happiest, brightest colors. Who doesn’t want to be “cheery” in the cooler months? I know, I definitely do! Right now, I’m eyeing the pink one (it’s currently on sale!). I bought this “mint” one two years ago, and wear it year after year, so it’s totally worth the investment. It adds just the right “pop” of color that you crave in the cooler months, especially to a neutral outfit like I’m wearing in this post.

Have a happy day, Friends!

Shopping Wish List

Happy Thursday, Friends! It’s almost Friday! Yay! Our temperatures aren’t anywhere close to wearing Fall clothes yet; however, Fall is on my mind all.of.the.time! I can’t wait for those bright blue skies, with cool crisp breezes. Until then, we’ll dream about them!

So, here’s what’s on my shopping “wish list” & some may or may not already be in my closet!

Happy Shopping!

Halogen Tie Bell Sleeve Sweater

Tie Bell Sleeve Sweater
This sweater is absolutely adorable, and it also comes 2 other colors, grey and black. I love the longer split hem, but what really sold me were the sleeves…tie bell sleeves!

J.Crew Cold Shoulder Sweater

j.crew bow sweater
So fun and classic for a date night out this Fall/Winter! It’s on sale now, too!

J.Crew Embellished Floral Top

j.crew floral top
I’m totally going to snag this beauty up while it’s on sale! It’s a great layering piece for under blazers & cardigans, or worn alone all dressed up!

J.Crew V-neck sweater with shirt cuffs

j.crew V-neck sweater with cuffs
I really like the look of layers, and this sweater comes without all of the fuss! I prefer the classic grey, but it also comes in a pretty purple color.

Topshop Ruffle Cold Shoulder Top

Ruffle Cold Shoulder Top
Such a cute top for a date night! I own this in the light blue. I’m thinking about adding another color to my closet, it’s that good!

J.Crew Button Mock Neck Top

J.Crew Striped Sweater
Another  great Fall/Winter (even Spring/Summer) wardrobe staple. J.Crew never disappoints, ever.

Leith Ripped Step Hem Skinny Jeans

Step hem jeans
Skinny jeans are my favorite denim style, and this pair has my interest, especially since they’re under $100! I really love the step hem look, and the wash of this pair!

Tory Burch McGraw Leather Tote

Tory Burch McGraw Tote
Gorgeous, and oh so classic.

Sam Edelman Pointy Toe Leopard Flats

SE Leopard Flats
A Fall must-have for me is a cute pair of leopard flats. You’ll wear them with literally everything.

 

Athena Alexander Pumps

Pointy Toe Pump
These are so chic, and they come in 12 other colors (wow!)! A kitten heel (#momlife) in a classic, pointy toe pump? Sold! Under $60!

Sole Society Mule Bootie

Mule Bootie
If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know these are in my closet! I love this casual, cute option to the traditional bootie. The mule/slide aspect is pure genius, and these are so comfortable!

Burberry Quilted Jacket

Burberry Ashurst jacket
An investment for sure, but a “go-to” year after year!

Kate Spade Earrings

These are so, so pretty!

What are you loving for Fall so far?

If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile now, then you know that I love anything with a bow. That’s why when I saw this sweater, I snagged it on sale last Spring. I felt like it took forever to get marked down.  This, this and this are also so cute for similar looks. The bows are such a fun surprise to what looks like an ordinary top/sweater from the front! This sweater is very lightweight, and could be styled year round, even on a cool, Summer evening out. I paired it with crisp, white denim for this look, but you can totally dress it up or down, depending on where you’re headed.

I hope you all had a great, relaxing weekend! Monday always seems to roll around a little earlier than we want, but let’s make it a great one!

Have a happy day!
