Fall Essentials

                       One | Two | Three | Four | Five | Six | Seven | Eight | Nine | Ten | Eleven

I know many of you do not want to talk about it or mention the name, but fall is upon us and just around the corner. Fall is actually one of my favorite seasons because all of the fashion and style that it entails.

Fall is a great time to start layering because it is relatively cool in the morning and warming in the afternoon. Because of this a girl needs many essentials, starting with a jacket for those cool crisp mornings. Two of my favorites are here and here. When it gets a bit colder I love this one here. Fall is also the time to get your shoe game on point. It is officially boot season. Ones to add to your collection are these and these.

Blanket scarfs are a must during the colder season. How cute is this oversized scarf here? They are a great accessory and can change the whole dynamic of an outfit. Jeans are always great for any season. These are a pair of my favorites here. One thing to add to your wardrobe for the colder temps is longer sleeves, so try this button down or this sweater. What are some of your favorite fall essentials? Shop mine below.

Casual Wear

Back to scarf weather. Although I love spring and summer there is nothing like having the chance to accessorize with a great blanket scarf. I could probably open a store with the amount of scarfs I have. They are great to add a little bit of color or flair to an outfit.

I paired this scarf with gray skinny jeans (which can be found here), a comfy sweater and a puffy down vest. I also have multiple vest too. They are another of my favorites items for winter. I added these duck boots from Lands End (similar here), which I have been wearing all season. You definitely need a pair is the winter months if you live in a place that gets snow. I finished the look with pink lipstick ( which can be found here). You can never go wrong with pink lipstick. This is probably one of my favorite outfits because it is very casual and can be worn for most low key activities, like running errands or getting coffee with friends. What is your favorite casual outfit? Shop similar items below. Hope you enjoy!

Blanket Scarfs Season

It’s blanket scarf season. Who else is as excited as I am? Blanket scarfs serve many purposes.

One being as an accessory to take you fall or winter outfit to the next level. The second reason is to keep you warm during those freezing temperatures. So you can never have to many, right? Below I have linked some affordable blanket scarfs. Like most things these can get pretty pricey. Most of the ones below are under $30. These scarfs sell out pretty quick so if you see one you like you better snag it. Hope you enjoy!

How to Add Some Flair to A Boring Sweater

Happy Friday! How was your week? Mine? It was pretty busy so I am definitely ready for the weekend. I started my weekend off with a little photo shoot to get me energized and ready. If you have big plans for your weekend how about pulling out a old boring sweater that you just cannot seem to give away and adding some flair to it?!? You ask “How can I do that”?
Well all of us have some of those plain basic sweaters in our wardrobe. How about adding one of this years top fashion item? The blanket scarf. Adding a blanket scarf can add flair to any outfit. Especially if it is a bright colorful one. Why not take it a step further and belt it with a skinny belt. This gives your scarf a cape effect and makes a statement. You can even get a little daring and mix patterns. My belt has polka dots on it. 
There is no need to go out and spend money on something new when you can create new outfits by just adding a few details you already have in your closet. Enjoy!!

About Last Night…..

Last night I went to a Christmas get together with some friends. A little wine tasting, conversation and dinner. I always love getting together with this group of girls. The older you get the harder it is to find a time to get together with everyone. Do you have a group of friends that you get together with around Christmas to exchange gifts and conversation?
