Sweater Weather

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!

While we aren’t seeing “sweater weather” temperatures here just yet, it’s pretty much all I can think about right now. So today, I’ve rounded up a few sweaters that I’m loving lately for you!

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!

Dreaming of Fall

Happy Wednesday, Friends!

By this point in the Summer, I’m pretty much dreaming of Fall, every.single.day. I’m almost the reverse of many, and I hibernate during these hot, hot months. I love to be outside, but I really don’t like to sweat unless I’m actually in workout clothes & working out. Anyway, as you can tell from this post that I’m already mentally changing my closet to Fall, even if the temperatures outside don’t match. Only 30 days to go!

Here’s what I’m dreaming of adding to my closet this Fall!

Happy Shopping!

Jack Rogers – Booties

I’m probably the only woman in the world that has just one pair of booties, to date. I’ve always worn either classic pumps, flats or tall boots in the Fall/Winter. However, I will say that my eye is always drawn to them in the stores, but I just have never seen myself wearing them that often. So, I’ve never made the investment. Well, that was until now.

Olivia Suede Bootie

I really like the lace up wedge. I’m pretty sure I was sold when I saw the scalloped edge. Love this sand color for a great neutral bootie.

Marianne Suede Bootie
marianne_bootie
I think these are super cute with the scalloped border cut out. They come in 3 colors. I love the black, just because I know they’ll go with everything, dressy or casual.

Do you love the bootie trend?

Happy Wednesday!

The Blanket Scarf

If I had to choose one accessory that I’m loving for Fall, it’s the blanket scarf. No matter what outfit you’re wearing, it instantly makes you look more put together. Even as a busy SAHM, I still want to look put together. I may be chasing after my little one, running errands for our family, or out on a date night with my husband, but you can bet you’ll be seeing me in this trend, and on heavy rotation.

Below are a few I’ll be adding to my scarf collection this Fall/Winter.

Happy Weekend!

Happy Weekend & Happy October! This is one of my favorite months of the year, second to December!

I apologize for the radio silence over here, as we’ve been busy fighting a cold, and have just been super busy taking care of all sorts of fun things. More on that later.
Either way, I hope that you’re enjoying your Friday so far, and really hope y’all have a happy, happy weekend. It’s supposed to rain here all weekend (but be sunny all next week…thank goodness!), so we’ll be doing things around the house and playing a lot! I may try my hand at a few new Fall recipes, and if they turn out well, I’ll share them next week.

Fall Workout Gear

Happy First day of Fall! That is music to my ears…literally!

I try to take a walk with my little one daily, so stocking up on Fall workout gear is essential for me. Plus, let’s face it, some days, all I wear is workout gear (even if I don’t get a workout in that day) to run errands in, go to library story time or just wear around the house while cleaning. It’s just easier. And, I know I’m not the only Mom that does this either. Who’s with me? Workout gear is so comfortable, and now there are a lot of cute options to choose from, so you don’t look frumpy.

Here’s what I’ve got my eye on right now. Happy Shopping!

Half-Zip Pullover
pink pullover
I bought this the other day, and it is so comfortable. I love the bright flamingo pink color too! You can’t beat Old Navy’s prices either. They’re always several dollars cheaper than Target sometimes.

Go-Dry Compression Leggings
compression leggings
I have always worn the Target leggings, and love them. I might have to try this pair next.

Go-Dry Compression Crops
crops
This length looks perfect for the cooler temps. They come in some fun prints/colors. And, the price is right.

Elastic Strap Burnout Tanks
tanks
I love wearing tank tops under my pullovers. This tank would be a good option for laying under your pullover this Fall.

Zella “Neo” Wraparound Cardigan
wraparound cardigan
This would be so chic with leggings for running errands/weekends. I think it’s too way too cute to sweat in…don’t you?

Patagonia “Re-Tool” Snap Pullover
patagonia fleece
This fleece looks perfect for those chilly mornings! I love this yellow color.

Women’s New Balance for J.Crew

Gold tennis shoes? Need I say more? Hello Happy Feet!

Hope y’all have a happy day

Weekend + First Signs of Fall

Happy Monday, Everyone! I hope that y’all had a fantastic weekend. I know we sure did. We did a little bit of this and that around the house, but mostly relaxed in this slightly cooler weather!

Our new chandelier is amazing in our master bedroom. My husband actually admitted after he put it up that it looked good! It’s going to sound silly, but I wake up feeling like a princess in our room now! I absolutely love it, and it so much better than our fan, which was barely used anyway.

camella light

I added the little white baby lamp shades that I already had from years ago to make it feel more cozy. I love the simplicity of this chandelier. It’s modern, yet still classic.

I did decorate a little bit for Fall. Mostly pumpkins sprinkled here and there around the house and on the front door, of course. We burned our new Harvest candle from Target during dinner times and at night. It makes the house smell so good!

Lastly, we played outside a lot with our little one! Like I’ve said before, this is my season, and I couldn’t be happier that it’s started!

rain bootsvia
I am in need/search of some new rain boots. Mine literally had a hole in them, so it was time to throw them away. I run errands in them, garden in them, and simply throw them on to go in and out of the house a lot. I am thinking about this pair or this pair.

 Happy Monday, Friends!

J.Crew – Fall Wish List

Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone enjoyed their last weekend of Summer. I’m happy to report that I am currently blogging in our new seafoam/mint master bedroom! I couldn’t bring myself to move my computer up to my office today. My husband did a fantastic job painting this weekend, and we are pleased as punch with the results!

I always look to J.Crew to set the trends for Fall, and they’ve done it again. I love browsing their “new arrivals.” Some of these new arrivals are currently on sale, too. I’ve rounded up a few that I’ve added to my Fall “wish list!”

Silk Drapey V-neck Blouse
Jcrew Drapey Blouse
This blouse is classic. I know it would get a lot of wear this Fall.

V-Neck Cardigan in Fringe Trim

I love the fringe trim. Such a new take on a classic cardigan.

I’m pretty sure I’m asking Santa for this coat this year!

These are adorable. They come in 3 colors. I’m in love with this strawberry color!

Palm Earrings

I love the color mix here. It feels very fresh for Fall.

Have a happy day!

Fall, Fall, Fall

It’s the last day in August, and that’s right, all I’m thinking about is Fall.
This is my season. And it’s so close.

op fall stylevia

I’m dreaming about playing outside with my little one, going to the mountains to see the leaves changing, outdoor patio date nights with my husband, dinners made in the crockpot, pumpkin spice lattes, Fall décor & candles, and of course, awesome fall outfits that include sweaters,  cute coats, boots, snoods, and lots of layers.

I am so in L.O.V.E. with this coat, handbag and pair of boots right now!

Factory Wool Dress Coat
wine coatThis wine color is simply gorgeous for Fall.

Sole Society Andie Tall Boot

These would look great with pretty much everything this Fall.

Ann Taylor Signature Tote 
signature tote
I love the zipper detail on this tote. This shape is my favorite style, and it looks like it will hold everything I need from diapers & toys to sunglasses & lip gloss, etc.! This is what I would call “tote perfection!”

Are you as excited as I am for Fall?
