Fall Wish List

Hello Friends! Since the weather has changed over to cool & crisp days here, I thought today I’d share with you my Fall “wish list!”
Happy Shopping!

 

J.Crew Blossom Print Silk Blouse

I love this floral top, and the feminine bow is the perfect finishing touch.

J.Crew Ruffle Cardigan

This would be such a great layering piece for Fall! Throw on over your favorite camisole, sleeveless top, and you’re set. Of course, I fell in love with the ruffles.

Treasure & Bond One Shoulder Sweater

 

This sweater comes in several colors, and would be so cute dressed up for a date night out!

J.Crew Eyelet Top

 I love the idea of taking the blush color into Fall. Such a delicate top you can dress up or down. It also comes in black.

1901 Poplin Tie Waist Dress

How fun/preppy is this dress? It would look adorable with boots, too.

Boden Velvet Pants

These pants are so chic! They could easily take you into the holiday party season!

Tory Burch McGraw Tote

How pretty is this handbag? It’s definitely on my Fall wish list, Christmas list, etc!

Tory Burch Clara Mule

These mules are D.R.E.A.M! Don’t worry, Honey, they’re just in my dreams not in my closet, yet.

Boden Farleigh Colorblock Coat

 

I’m literally swooning over this color block coat. Camel with a surprise pop in the back! Love, love, love!

Top Handle Bucket Bag

I would take the long straps off of this, and wear it for a date night. Lord knows I can’t fit everything for the daytime with the boys in it, but it’s great for a night out on the town!

Olivia Burton Mini Bow Stud Earrings

Adorable mini bow studs. Anything with a bow, and I’m pretty much sold.

 

NEST Hearth 3-Wick Candle

I’m so ready for the Thanksgiving/Christmas seasons! This candle smells heavenly! We may or may not already be intermittently playing Christmas music and watching our favorite children’s Christmas movies with our boys!

Wednesday Wish List

Happy Wednesday, and Spring! It’s currently cold & rainy here today, but that’s not going to stop me from dreaming of warmer temperatures. And, with Easter literally right around the corner, it’s the perfect time to think about what classics to add to your closet. Easter is one of my absolute favorite holidays!

Here are a few fun things that I’m wanting/wishing to add to my closet for Spring.

J.Crew Striped Halter Jumpsuit

This halter jumpsuit is really flattering, and chic. Dress it up for a date night, or wear it with casual sandals during the daytime.

AG Jodi High Waist Crop Jeans

I really like the style of these white jeans. I love the cropped look for Spring/Summer. AG is one of the best fitting brands.

Crocheted Lace Flutter Top

This blouse is so adorable. Such an easy, breezy top to wear for everyday.

Ruffled Crossover Back Blouse

I love this poppy red color, and the design. It would be so pretty dressed up or down!

BP. Ruffle Sleeve Off the Shoulder Top

I love most anything in gingham, and this off the shoulder top is perfect for a date night.

Circle Eyelet Flounce Top

You can’t go wrong with eyelet & peplum, and it’s really classic looking in black!

Maggy London Lace Flare Hem Midi Dress

 

This dress would be stunning for Easter. The fit is flattering, too. Love the longer length, since I’m 5’10.

Pompom Sandals

H.E.L.L.O! These are just gorgeous!!

Espadrilles

You can’t go wrong with a classic, casual shoe for running around, and this one fits the bill for Spring/Summer.

BaubleBar Hoop Earrings

 

How fun are these earrings? A little bit modern, and a little bit classic!

J.Crew Leopard Print Pajamas

Who doesn’t love a new pair of pajamas? And, in leopard print? Yes, please!

What’s on your “wish list?”

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, Friends! We’re in Florida on a mini work/vacation! I hope that you’ve had a wonderful week & are ready for the weekend! Tonight we are attending a Christmas party on the beach! Be sure to follow along on Instagram!

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

ONE
Tucker + Tate Pajamas


I love getting the boys matching pajamas, especially for the holidays. The Tucker + Tate brand is so classic. Every season they come out with some really good stuff from clothing to shoes. Get the pajamas early, as the cute ones sell out fast!

TWO
NEST Holiday Candle

These would make such a great gift. The absolute best candles.

THREE
Kate Spade New York Earrings

Oh, Kate…bows & pearls? Such a chic combination.

FOUR
Native Union TAG Charger

This is such a brilliant gift idea for the busy guys in your life. They can attach it to their briefcase or keychain, and they’re never without power when they need it the most!

Cozy Holiday Neutrals

As you already know, there’s nothing I love more than an excuse to get dressed up, especially around the holidays. However, I’m not a big fan of being cold, which is why this sweater is a fantastic mix of classic & cozy. It’s quite perfect in the fact that you can wear it with your favorite jeans (like these, these & these), or you can dress it up, add your go-to pair of heels & voila, you’re party ready, cozy & warm!

Happy Tuesday, Friends!

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

 


I wanted this cape dress to be the official start of the holidays for Fancy Says Have A Ball. When I saw this on J.Crew, a few months ago, I knew I had to buy it, especially since it was on sale at the time. This is a dress that will take you from one Christmas party to the next. It’s great because you don’t have to wear a coat (or in most cases, keep up with one) to a party. It’s a classic sheath dress topped off with a cape & a bow. What could be better you say? I can’t think of anything more chic to take you into the holiday season.
I am a firm believer in giving each holiday “it’s own time;” however, this Town & Country article pretty much validated that it’s never too early to get into the Christmas spirit. Do you agree? Either way, I can’t wait to unbox all of our decorations, start our Christmas shopping & spread holiday cheer & happiness wherever I go. Thank you, Mom & Dad for a wonderful childhood of memories of Christmas (& Thanksgiving).

Happy Monday & Early Thanksgiving, Everyone!

Holiday Party Attire

I still can’t believe that it will be Thanksgiving one week from today. Can you? This year has just flown by, and before you know it all of the holiday parties will be coming up quickly on our calendars. So, today I’ve rounded up some dresses, shoes & accessories to get your closet holiday-party ready!

Happy Shopping!

J.Crew Velvet Tie A-Line Dress

This dress is a classic. It would look pretty with dressy black pumps or even a dressy pair of boots!

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!

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!

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.

Have a happy day!
