Fall Transition

Cardigan | Tank | Denim | Boots | Bag | Earrings

Hudson: Shirt | Joggers | Boots

You know that time of year when the morning air is crisp enough to make you reach for cardigans and boots? That transition period gets me so ecstatic, because I live for all things Fall!

I can’t count the number of times that I realize Hudson and I are unintentionally in coordinating clothing. Coincidence, or maybe my subconscious styling us? ha. It was his first time strolling city streets this week, (we live in the middle of corn fields, cows, and crickets!) and he loved every minute of it! He’s definitely his mama’s child!

I love transition pieces like long cardigans, utility and denim jackets, because I can layer them over tanks and tees, and remove them as it warms up throughout the day. These boots are ridiculously comfy, and come in sleek neutrals!

The joy on his face captures my heart! There is nothing I love more than taking him places to explore!

We couldn’t end the day without a treat! The Milkshake Factory is high up on the list of deliciousness, and one of our new faves! If you’re in the city, it’s a must!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

When it comes to building the ultimate versatile wardrobe, knowing when to splurge and when to save is key. But, when you’re able to save on quality wardrobe staples, you hit the jackpot. Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is the ultimate event to building basics that will get you through the entire season. The rest?.. Is a piece of cake. The fashionable event happens once per year where select Fall and Winter items actually go on sale, (for a limited time) before they are full priced. That time to splurge?.. is now.

Season Staples

Season Staples from J.Crew

Top | Clutch | Necklace | Hat | Sandals | Belt | Tote | Skirt | Shorts | Popover | Sunnies

 J.Crew is the one store where I highly anticipate diving into their style guide each month. The mix of classic essentials and bright punchy hues leaves me with an ongoing mental wish list. The brand portrays classic basics with a trendy infusion (usually through accessories) perfectly, and it fits my style dead on. I mean have you seen that statement necklace? Talk about a gasp-worthy statement piece! They never fail to impress, which these favorite pieces make fab staples to get you through the entire SS seasons.

I literally swooned when I spotted this cake stand. What a perfect display for a statement necklace.

I have a major weakness for pretty packaging. I love these fun, bold hued tags.

pastel nails

A pastel appropriate manicure.

I can’t even begin to express to you my obsession with TJ Maxx. It started as a child, I have always had an eye for unique finds, and there is no better to explore. Carrying a selection of all my favorite things fashion, baking accessories, and home decor, it will always be my fave one-stop shop. With the exception of the pastel mani, all photos were finds from a recent trip this week.

Soak up the Sun

Spending the week in warm weather and sunshine was the perfect way to start off the new year. A start to my Spring wardrobe, and new beauty additions are such a tease when having to finish off the next couple months of Winter. Oribe Apres Beach Wave and Shine Spray is my new favorite must-have.

Winter Hues

Winter Hues

This season I’ve been reaching for army green and wine colored hues, along with my usual neutrals. A pair of colored denim or an accent scarf really make my basic blacks, navys and beiges pop in a bold way.

I’ve been living in this sweater coat that I purchased for the Fall season, but is surprisingly warm when layered for cooler temps.

It was *love at first sight* when I spotted these sparkly pumps adorned with bows. They are the epitome of glam. It’s safe to say this statement shoe will add sparkle to any ensemble.

 

TIP: Don’t limit yourself to Women’s sizes. J.Crew Crewcuts boys clothes sometimes have a better fit than Women’s when it comes to button-front tops! Added bonus: the price tag is usually significant lower, also!
